I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Why not try the MSI Gaming 970 motherboard, its pretty inexpensive and a decent motherboard. Where do you shop?

Hello, I have two HP 6300 Pro workstations that have bad motherboards. One of the motherboards even fried my hard-drives. Or could it be a bad power supply that fried all my components? I any case, I need two motherboards and one power supply. I would like to know if these computers are still under warranty and if so how can I get parts replacements? I am a computer engineer with A+ certification.

I have a new system Intel DG965WH with 1GB and a Core 2 Duo E6300 processor with a WD 320 GB SATA drive. When I start the installation of either XP or Media Version XP they both get to the point of loading in memory the necessary files and when you are prompted for "enter" to continue it resets the machine and you start all over again.

Has any one had experience loading either of these operating systems on to this type of system or perhaps can point me in the right direction as to the problem? Could it be memory? I am using a Kingston KVR667D2N5K2/1G which should be ok for this type of mother board as it is 1.8v memory.

Could be bad RAM, a lot of times it causes that error in the initial file copy from the CD to the hard drive.Memtest is a good diag for memory. You're not just booting from the CD after the computer reboots from the initial setup, are you?The restart after it finishes copying files over is normal, after that it should continue in a VGA setup screen.

Could someone answer the following questions regarding the comparison of these two CPU's

1. Best value for money?

2. Personal opinion, which would you get?

3. Should I consider a lower end i5?

4. Which offers the best upgrade path? (consider steamroller and excavator)

and if you dont mind explain yrou reasons

A:i3 3220 or FX-6300

I thought you already had this figured out. Save up and get an Intel i5 and decent Z77 motherboard.

As for those 2 CPU's......the AMD is $139 and the Intel is $129. AMD prices their processors to match Intel at various price points for a reason, and that reason is whatever CPU is closest in price is probably it's equivalent in terms of overall performance. The FX 6300 has 6 cores and the i3 3220 is dual core with HT.....there are some things the Intel will run faster/better and vice versa. I would go with a decent Asus Z77 motherboard and a good Intel i5 CPU. It will last you much longer than you think, and will beat most AMD CPU's handily.

You mentioned upgrade paths.........AMD will probably be the way to go there. I don't know how much longer they plan on using the AM3+ platform, but they just released a new architecture for it, and Intel has pushed socket 1155 as far as they are going to go.

I am thinking about upgrading my GPU. my budget is about 327 dollars. i Want a GPU that will not be bottlenecked by my amd fx-6300 that much. i am currently thinking about the GeForce GTX 970and the R9 380, or different ones. I want to get good and decent performance in gaming. Games like Csgo, Rust and Gta 5. What should i buy.

A:What GPU should i buy to match my amd fx-6300

depends on your PSU. The new Radeon RX 480 performs better than the 380, and fits better into your budget than a 970, if your running a 1080P monitor and want to run these games on medium to high the 480 would be my choice, the CPU shouldn't bottleneck,but i'm not 100% sure.,157319.0.html

Hi All,

As the title says, will an AMD FX-6300 processor work with an ASRock > N68C-GS FX motherboard?

I'm planning to upgrade my system due to FPS drops whilst playing DOTA 2. I've concluded that since the FPS drops happen after several minutes while playing and seem to have nothing to do with the amount of visuals on my screen when it happens, it's my processor bottle-necking my system. Hope someone can shed some insight.

A:Will an AMD FX-6300 work with an AsRock N68C-GS FX

Yes, if you make sure you have bios 1.30 on it first. Next time you should look at the cpu support list like below.

I am looking to get into PC gaming and using editing softwares like Sony Vegas. I was wonder which one would be the best to do this job. I've heard the fx 6300 is good, but I heard the i3 is faster at gaming and rendering? Is this true. For the Pentium I can get that with a z97 mobo or the i3 with a h81 mobo. Which CPU should I go with in my situation? Will do some live streaming as well.

It is unlikely to work because you will probably need to install a PCIe x1 wifi card that is half height (low profile). The wifi card you are enquiring about is full height and there will not be enough space in you OC's case.

You're very welcome, Mike. Yes, you were to use the one physical CPU selection, not based on how many cores it has. I only buy the CMT's/MT's for the reason of the low wattage PS's in the SFF's. Even those only have 325W P/S's. However, that gives me more of a variety of choices to upgrade hardware--and I don't have to make sure the parts come with low profile brackets. In any event, I think the 610GT will work just fine in the 6300 SFF. Best Regards, Paul

Hi (a post after a long time)
I've a F90M motherboard (with intel 915G chipset - i gues chipset doesn't have to do anything with front panel connections, but ... ). It came out of Acer 3700GX PC (i think its a bit old ).
Ok, now i'm trying to put it in a standard larger ATX casing. I've fitted it in and everything works fine except the front panel connections. I cannot identify the front panel connections and could only manage to identify the power switch pins on the motherboard.

I've searched over internet and couldn't find a manual of the motherboard (found manual for the PC on but it doesn't tell how to connect front panel)

so can you guys please suggest me the connections for front panel LEDs, Audio and USB.

and i really believe that you TSG guys are up to it

I could use some creative customer service here. My M3800 shipped with the known power-on motherboard defect. It was replaced at no charge, which was very nice. However, the replacement (2nd motherboard!) is now having the same intermittent dead / no power problem.
To get the computer running, I have to remove the case (12 screws) and un-plug the internal battery to 're-set' the electrical fault. After I put it back together, the computer starts normally. This is not very convenient, especially when meeting with new clients.

hey guys, does anyone if there are any other drivers for this board? i'm looking at this page after selecting 'driver' and 'win7 64 bit'. i only see 'audio', 'chipset' 'LAN' and 'RAID'. on the other boards i've seen, the driver software was much more comprehensive and contained several different pieces of software.

what's the main driver i need to install after installing win7 for the motherboard? just wondering if i'm missing something and need to install something else for the 'main features'? or are there main features found in the BIOS before win7 boots up? how does win7 recognise the board btw? does the board have drivers built in already? how can winxp recognise mboards that have been made very recently?

thanks guys

A:Gigabyte motherboard: P55M-UD4 some questions on motherboard software

Those are all the drivers you need, and really all any motherboard needs to work. You also have some Utilities under the drop down menu of "Download Type" but these are optional tweaking and similar utilities not required for proper operation of the system. Any version of Windows will have limited driver support, enough to install and run until the correct drivers are installed, or for a SATA or RAID controller under Windows XP drivers are loaded via the F6 prompt during the initial stages of the XP install to allow it to detect the hard drive. There are no drivers built into the hardware itself.

Okay, so as the topic title implies, for the life of me, I cannot figure out which motherboard model I'm supposed to get for this Dell Inspiron 1300 here. Only info I have is that it has the Centrino sticker on the palm rest of the case, and I also have the service tag, but that doesn't seem to give me much information from what I've found.

I've taken the motherboard out of the thing and looked it over, but no luck, as I don't see the model number on it.

Will someone please tell me how I'm supposed to figure out the motherboard model number so I can get a new one?

A:Is a 60" Samsung Plasma HDMI motherboard compatible with a 52" Sony Bravia HDMI motherboard.

No, it would not be, in the past I had to repair a tv for a friend that had his board shorted that was an LCD Sony Bravia 52 Inch and its board was very specific as with all Sony Products. The Boards on the TV's are the hearts and the companies that built them don't allow for parts to be interchanged easily. Your best bet is ebay and finding the part number to find a board, that's how I got the one I used to fix it.

obviously i wouldnt want to send it back so what do ya think either upgrade my motherboard and smash the extra 4 gb in there or keep to my original one i dont have money to blow atall im really struggling if its something that will really make a difference ill go with it if not then ill just keep to my original and when i come to buy a graphics card i will get a 2gb graphics card to help with gaming all i really do is gaming i dont really do anything else

thankyou for your time

I'd go with 4 gigs until you had a major reason to believe it wasn't enough. If that ever happens, consider your next move. Most people do just fine with 4 gigs.

how do i know if this motherboard supports ram like ddr2. and speeds like 5400, 6400 and whatever the rest of the new ddr2 speeds are. i needa sli motherboard that supports that stuff. that is if its a big performance difference over 3200?

A:can this motherboard use this ram!!!????

the short answer is no. but not because of the motherboard, but because if the CPU.

the KN8 serires motherboards are for AMD socket-939 Athlon64 processors. all AMD processors since socket-A have had the memory controller built into the CPU itself instead of on the motherboard chipset. what this means is that the CPU decides what memory it will accept, not the mobo.

socket-939 processors support DDR memory, socket-AM2 processors support DDR2 memory

DDR2 memory sticks can run at higher clock speeds than DDR, but they also have higher latency, which offsets the higher clock. there is not much performance increase with DDR2 over DDR.

the bottom line is this... a socket-939 system with PC3200 RAM will be a big performance leap over what you have now, and at the current time performs almost as well as AM2 systems. also, now that AM2 is out, the prices of 939 have dropped alot. so right now is a great time to go 939. you will get a great performing system for not alot of $$$

What does the motherboard manual say to do for that plug?

You have to be more specific. Is this a square plug with 4 connectors like a P4 Processor Power Plug?

If the Processor's cooling fan is not plugged into the Connector on the motherboard that says CPU FAN then it will not start. This is standard on most motherboards.

Hi Hell Bomb, welcome to the forums. To determine your board's model number may not be as complicated as you think. Simply taking the left side panel off should be all you need to do, find the label on your board from there. If, for some reason, you can't take the panel off - try using CPU-Z. It's the simplest way to find out what's in your case. Once you do, fill out the system specs in your profile. Good luck.

This has a lot of factors that can cause issues. Can you provide a model number or a picture of the Tiny? Some P4s less than 1.7 Ghz did not have the same socket as the one on the S478... If you can find out what socket, we can provide more info. Most of the components should be fine (HDD, CDROM, etc.) An idea of the current motherboard in the system will also assist with letting us know if the new board will fit in the case. If I have time, I'll try to research and see what models came with a P4 1.5 from tiny, but if I remember correctly, they are currently out of business...

LOL, a dicotomy: tri-SLI but onboard sound. Anyway, eVGA Classified series has a tri-SLI x16 model; don't know of any others.

Just checking to see if these are any good as a motherboard (Upgradable in the future) and if the CPU and the Motherboard are compatible.

Mother Board - MSI 975X Platinum Power UP Edition (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard (MB-072-MS)

CPU - Intel Pentium 4 524 "LGA775 Prescott" 3.06GHz (533FSB) with HT Technology - Retail (CP-134-IN)

Just want to know if they will fit and if the Motherboard is upgradable for the future?

I can say I know quite a bit about computers So you don t have to talk in non techie talk But one of the problems ive had is comparing two brands of CPU use? should CPU/motherboard Which I s Especialy now adays that a processor labled for example ghz can out run some that are labled ghz just an off the head figure thats probibly not correct but you get my point So I can t right tell which of these two proccesors I should pick from The first which im running with right now is a AMD s Athlon XP ghz I Which CPU/motherboard should I use? can switch out for a chip later on While the other is a Intel Celeron D Processor GHz The Intel one would seam the faster do to its Ghz speed But that might not be the case This is because right now my computer Which CPU/motherboard should I use? is a bit too slow to run the one program ive been unable to play Oblivion and hopefully I can use the Intel chip to help boost it to a decent running speed Ill probibly have to upgrade my video card as its not the best But its also good to get as fast a cpu as possible thought its not required like mem and such but this will be a free upgrade So could someone help me figure out which would be faster for this purpose nbsp

My machine has a P4i45GV MotherBoard by ASRock. I was working on my combo when I suddenly heard some sounds like a short circuit. I was very fast at switching off the power. Now it can't light up i.e. the power led is not lighting up. But when I switch on the machine both the CPU fan and the Power Supply fan rotate for One Second. The Board seems to be fine. How Can I know for sure that the motherboard is/isn't spoiled.

A:Is this motherboard done

It could be your PSU thats had it.
To test it you need to remove all connectors from the mobo then short the green wire to one of the black ones. With this done the PSU should fire up completely, if it doesnt then its blown.
If it works ok then let me know and i will help you to find the exact cause of your problems.
Hope that helps. Rik.

My computer has just quit on me because of an apparent motherboard problem I am using this as an opportunity to upgrade both the board and the CPU which are en-route as I write this I moving up from an Athlon socket to a Phenom II socket AMD on an Asus M A T-M USB board Reading through the tutorial on transferring to a and CPU motherboard New new computer it appears to me that the new system will not boot or am I misunderstanding I assume this means that I will have to re-install everything so should I just re-install over the existing OS or should I format the drive first I would appreciate any advice or New motherboard and CPU observations on the processes that I need to follow to successfully get the new system working I feel sure that the information is already here somewhere but I'm not sure where or what to look for My computer knowledge and skills are very limited so I warn anyone replying that their input will probably generate even more questions from me

Today I bought a new EPOX 8RDA3G motherboard to go with a AMD ATHLON XP 3200+ Processor but I cant get it to work. After it trys to start windows it just gives me that horrible blue sreen.

I know the mobo is supposed to be set at 200MHz but all I can get is 133MHz

Any help please?

Hi and welcome. If you are running XP, it doesn't take kindly to a new motherboard. You're going to have to do a repair windows installation at best, or format and start clean would be better.

Disconnect all the wires from the front panel and replace them carefully. If you look in your mobo manual it will show you which wires go where.

I just recently got a new motherboard 'Biostar NF325-A7' and an 'Athlon 64 3400+'.
I used the old ram, video card and hard drives.
Kingston HyperX 2700 512mb x2
AIW 9800 Pro 128mb
Two Western Digital HDDs

It posts just fine, but as soon as the Windows xp logo comes up it reboots.
I read on the forum that you should get a fresh intall of Windows XP after a major hardware change. I have not transfered anything from my drives, so I want to know if i can repair WinXP without losing any data from my hard drives? Do I have to format an HDD?

Is this my problem?

I have a new AMD Duron DHD1800DLV1C CPU and I need to know a couple of motherboards that will accept this A socket CPU.

I am donating a hard drive, OS and everything else that I already have to a charitable organization (Fraternal Order of Eagles). To finish putting it together I need a motherboard without spending much money.

I'd sincerely appreciate any help I can get.



A:Which motherboard do I need?

Socket A motherboards are getting fewer and farther between. lists 7 of them that range in price from 17.99 to 64.99. The 17.99 are PCChips which is not a good manufacturer. A Biostar is listed at $41 You said not much but did specify a price range.

After hours of work, I have determined that I either have a bad motherboard or a bad cpu, the cpt won't boot up, it gets power but the monitor does not turn on. There are no beeps when I turn it one. Basically, I get nothing but the sound of fan running. Prior to getting to this point, I had been having physical memory dump with a blue screen about once a week. Any help would be appreciated. I have elimated all of the other hardware by testing them in other computers. I cannot test my processor since I do not have another Socket A mother board.

A:Bad Motherboard or CPU?

Can you test the mem and cpu in a known good system?
