Very strange custom computer issue

Q: Very strange custom computer issue

I've recently built a new computer for myself and has been running perfect for a few months. A couple days ago whilst gaming/browsing my monitor went into power safe mode and shortly after my computer shut off, I tried to start up again only to have the same problem occur , the only old parts were a graphics card and psu, I just got in a new gpu and installed it successfully. Same problem occurs. All fans are running properly including the heatsink , processor core temps are around 39 , everything seems to be running ok? Thoughts?

Preferred Solution: Very strange custom computer issue

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I made a thread some months back about this issue but had troubles figuring out the problem cause I didn t have the PC at the time Long story short I had a functioning PC mailed it to a with build Strange custom issue a friend via FedEx and upon arrival it no longer worked properly What seems to happen is upon start up it will show the boot screen but there are two giant white lines across the screen and everything is off center It then tries to boot into Windows but goes to a BSOD except its all scrambled up and unreadable then the system shuts off I tried removing and reinserting the GPU and HDD but had no success with that same problem Strange issue with a custom build would happen I thought maybe it was the GPU so I took it out of the system and actually put the GPU from my newer system into it First time it booted it up it did go into Windows but it was stuck in -bit mode until I installed the drivers My newer card is also an NVIDIA card and not an AMD like the old one Once I uninstalled the AMD Drivers and installed the Nividia ones it loaded up properly But out of curiousity I decided to put the AMD GPU into my current system and not the broken one and power it on just to see if the same sorta screen problem would happen However it actually worked fine just it didn t display the correct resolution because there s no AMD drivers on my newer system So I put the card back into the old system tried booting it up same problem happened Screen would have white lines and then scrambled BSOD So far I have unplugged the GPU completely unplugged and the HDD and reset the CMOS Though I am not sure I did this properly I did remove the battery from the MOBO while the system was powered off but didn t attempt to turn it on while removed to try and drain any excess power from the system Any ideas what might be causing this issue though It s just strange to me that this system doesn t seem to want to load properly with the original video card I had in it despite the card working in a different system and the system working fine with a different card Here are the specs for my old system MOBO GIGABYTE GA-EP -UD L LGA Intel P ATX Intel Motherboard GPU PowerColor AX GBD -HM Radeon HD GB -Bit GDDR PCI Express x HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card CPU Intel Core Duo E Wolfdale Dual-Core GHz LGA W Processor BX E HDD Western Digital WD Blue WD AAKS GB RPM MB Cache SATA Gb s quot Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive RAM G SKILL GB x GB -Pin DDR SDRAM DDR PC Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F - CL D- GBPQ For my new one if needed OS Version Microsoft Windows Pro bit Processor Intel R Core TM i - CPU GHz Intel Family Model Stepping Processor Count RAM Mb Graphics Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX Ti - Mb Hard Drives C Total - MB Free - MB D Total - MB Free - MB E Total - MB Free - MB Motherboard ASRock H M nbsp

The issue started about a year ago, when I fully assembled the computer. Whenever I would play a graphically-intensive game, such as DayZ, the game would play for around 10 - 30 minutes, and then all of a sudden, the computer would just shut off.

Seems like 50% of the time, the screen would just go black, but the machine would just stay on, continually, until I was forced to do a manual restart. The other 50% of the time, the screen would do something... Strange. Then, the computer would reboot on its own, and a message box would appear saying something along the lines of, "Windows has recovered from an unexpected error".

This is a very irritating issue that I absolutely adore the thought of getting solved.

Any and ALL help would be appreciated.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable.

I just recently built my new computer, and have noticed that i keep getting IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL bsod. This tends to come up after playing a game for an hour or so, but the times are usually random. It has even happened while running other programs....which is slightly annoying. I thought it might be the ram cards, so i took one off, which delayed the issues it seemed...but they are back. I can still run windows and everything, so not sure how severe it is.

Hello there, first time posting on the forums.

I built my computer a few months ago (July) and have been experiencing a BSOD very often recently. I wasn't doing anything different when it started happening, no new programs or anything.


IT DOES SEEM TO HAPPEN MORE WITH MICROSOFT OUTLOOK OPEN. Not sure if this is a coincidence. It does happen even with Outlook closed.

Here's the log:

Attachment 346860

Much appreciated!

A:BSOD around every 30 hours on custom computer, may be Outlook issue

You have had many BSODs. I did not check the cause of everyone, but checked at least 6. They were all consistent, so I am pretty sure of the cause. It seems to be a memory problem. We need to test your ram.
Using Memtest
Run for at least 8 passes, for each stick.
Then run for at least 8 passes, using a good stick and testing each slot.

So i have a Radeon x pro strange issue really A my computer with and wanted A really strange issue with my computer to put A really strange issue with my computer it in my system I tried putting it in with my current power supply but it didnt have enough power So i had to replace my old powersupply with a new W A really strange issue with my computer one So im having my friend install the the new powersupply and when we hook it in we had it on top of the computer just in case and it explodes We put my old one back in along with my graphics card and it works fine Normally i would get a no signal screen but now it works fine But heres the odd part I did this at my friends house and the plug the new power supply was hooked into when it blew up is the only plug anywhere that will let my video card run without a no signal screen Im wondering if anybody knows what may have happened and why that wall socket is the only one it will work in Thanks nbsp

A:A really strange issue with my computer

Some wall sockets restrict power output and vice versa, depending on how well the electrical system is set up in the home. Word of advice though, you should never connect a computer directly into the wall and always use at least a 6-socket surge protector. The fact the power supply blew up on you could mean the outlet is not to spec, the unit was faulty, or there was a static/ground issue (placing the PSU on top of the tower is basically the same thing as having it actually installed). It doesn't sound like either of you has too much experience with computer or electronic equipment, so I would suggest reading up on how to properly install a PSU and finding an affordable UPS unit to prevent any future damage to hardware. APC makes some affordable devices and they are hard to not recommend.

Also, know that not all power supplies are created equal, and some are just garbage...

Whenever I try to turn my computer on after it has been shut off for the night only the fans go on and it fails to boot. After turning the motherboard off and on it will boot with one beep going off during post, and according to the User Guide manual, the possible errors could be: "keyboard controller error", "Refresh time error", or "No Master drive detected". It still stars however, but some programs don't run on startup and it is overall extremely slow. Then I restart my computer and everything is running perfectly.

Any ideas what is causing this? And sorry if I posted in the wrong forum. I wasn't exactly sure where to post.
 

A:Strange computer issue

Absolutely anything could be causing it.

We can only work with the information you give us.

We need to know what pc it is for starters. What windows version you have. Information about any recent hardware changes.

The more info you give us, the greater the chance of us diagnosing your problem.

The single beep on bootup is normal btw.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

If this is happening with all third-party custom themes and the Windows 7 default Aero theme then I am making a guess that it is your graphic card drivers may need to be updated, go to your computer makers website and look for the latest drivers using your model number

I installed a custom start orb a little over two weeks ago with the program Start Orb Changer. Once in a blue moon when I shut the PC down and restart the next morning the start orb changes to the default start orb. It did the same thing this morning when I booted up my PC. It doesn,t do it everytime I shutdown but at random times. Any ideas on what might be causing the custom orb to change to the default one? Thanks.

A:Custom Start Orb Issue

Did you use 'Windows 7 Start Orb Changer'?

If you did, run it as Administrator and click on Restore. After the start orb has been restored, change it again to your custom one, remembering to run the tool as Admin.

If this still doesn't work, try option two in the below tutorial to change it via a Resource Editor.

I custom built a PC for a client with an AMD quad core Phenom about 8 months ago. The PC operated perfectly until recently, when it would intermittently not boot to windows when turned on. According to my client he would just keep tiring to boot the computer and until it did.

Now that a have the computer and am training to trouble shoot, when I press the power button I can hear the boot process but the monitor does not respond. After re-starting it several times im still unsure if I can determine if I can hear any activity coming from the hard disk during the boot.

I replaced the PCI Express video card with one known to be good for the same result.

Any insight or advice in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. I know how to change my folder icons--Properties, Customize, Change Icon--but I don't actually know what this does. I'm asking because I changed a bunch of icons on an external HDD with .ico files from my computer, but I think I moved the original folder and the thumbnails vanished.

Does this mean that when I set an icon, I have to keep the image folder in the same path as it was when it was originally set? And if I store the icons on the HDD, would they display properly on other computers as well?

Yes

Most likely they would not display properly because technically you are changing the path again, would be a different computer name or different username will change the path.

This is so not that important.....a one on a scale of 1-10. Not even.

When I change one of my desktop icons to the custom one I want, it stays for a little while and then, eventually reverts back to the default one on some subsequent boot. I have tried more than one icon, so it's not as if one is corrupt or sumthin.

I know....this is my only issue with all my current puters., I count my blessings.

But I like it when things work as they should.

(I'm not sure which part of the forum this fits into, so I'm guessing it's alright to be in this one).

I have Vista, and at the moment I'm using a custom theme for Vista Basic called "Vista Black for Vista Basic:

I'm using it because I think it might increase performance in games and it's a dark black that Aero can't match (Unless transparency is enabled).

Problem comes when I save something through firefox:

The text to the left of the filename and filetype bars are unreadable. I can changed the text color to white via the system option in the advanced part of the display settings, but that makes firefox tabs white texted, Ventrilo white and unreadable, etc.

I know it's not a big issue, but I'm wondering if there's ANY way to fix this? (besides using Aero)

A:Custom Vista Basic Theme Issue

Hi,

Not a complete solution but for the Firefox issue you may want to check out an addons for tabs, I use colorfultabs which is available on the Mozilla add-ons site, this allows you to control what color the tabs are and also alows you to invert the tab text color.

May save the eyestrain a little

Hello,

I downloaded the student edition of windows 7 Home Premium, I am currently running Vista Ultimate so cannot do an upgrade and have to do a custom install.

I downloaded it fine, ran it, it opens up fine with the blue windows 7 opening screen, I select install, then select custom install. In the next window I have an empty white box which I presume is supposed to list my HD's allowing me to select where I want to install Windows 7. None of my HD's are showing up, I'm given the option to browse or scan, when I select this it gives me the message-

No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK

Any suggestions?

Thanks

A:Windows 7 Custom Install Issue-No Device Drivers

Please complete your system specs if you can. Especially hard drives and whether or not they are SATA and/or in a RAID configuration.

There was an article on the net that showed how to upgrade from Win 7 Ultimate to Win 7 Home Premium. It might work in Vista's case as well. (I would give you the link but I was warned not to post it)

Maybe someone else knows the link to a guide on this site.

Hello,

I just finished assembling my first build. At first it turned on without a hitch, was able to install windows and a few drivers.

I had to restart a few times, which went fine for the first few times, and then it just didn't boot back up. The power button doesn't do anything, the fans don't start, nothing happens.

When I jump the psu, all the fans start, so I'm thinking the issue must be with the mobo..

Here's a list of all the parts I'm using : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/JFVvD3

Thanks.
 

A:Mobo issue? Custom build won't start anymore

First, are any wires touching that might be causing a short such as a wire touching the back of the mobo? Second, I had something similar happen to me a few years ago with a new build. There is a tried and true though often tedious way that can help diagnose possible issues.

1. Remove all hardware except for one RAM stick from the motherboard and this includes Sata and fan connections to peripherals such as your SSD, etc,

2. Now see if the system boots with only the one RAM stick. If it boots then shut down add the second stick of RAM and then reboot. If it boots then repeat by adding a piece at a time.

3. If is doesn't boot then it is either your mobo or your power supply. Also, check to see if your heat sink is seated correctly.

BTW, nice little system there.

A:Multiple BSOD in custom build can't tell if driver or hardware issue

Hi,

Your installation is counterfeit activated using the LENOVO (BLACKLISTED!) key.
There is no point analysing your issue as your system may be compromised by the Activation
exploit used.


The best course of action is to:Purchase a legitimate Windows 7 licence.
Format the HDD.

So in short my problem is that my computer turns on but doesn't boot the OS leaving me staring at a blank screen The issue started a while back when i upgraded the wireless adapter in my computer the adapter i was using was starting not to function properly so i purchased a new one the one i had originally was an ASUS PCE-N and the one i bought to replace it was a TP-LINK N and both of them are PCI adapters When i Boot confusing with Complex custom 8.1 windows build issue on and went to swap out the parts the instructions for the ASUS adapter said that before changing adapters i had to uninstall the ASUS drivers that for the adapter however when i uninstalled the drivers the uninstall failed halfway through and blue screened my computer the error code it gave was IQRL NOT LESS OR EQUAL then the computer restarted itself and sent me back to the login page When i tried to type in the password for my account it blue screened again with the same error code This happened five or six more times before i gave up and just cut the power and swapped the ASUS adapter with the TP-LINK Complex and confusing Boot issue with windows 8.1 on custom build one This actually stopped the blue screen from comming up However now my computer wouldn't boot every time i turned it on and i had to cycle to power a few times to get it to boot up properly However once it got started i wouldn't have any issues After doing some searching i found that the drivers for the ASUS adapter had not been fully removed so i went and tried to remove them again in the hopes that it would solve my boot issues Then during the uninstall a window popped up telling me that in order to remove the drivers the ASUS adapter had to be in the computer so i turned off the computer and swapped the adapter back to the ASUS one When i turned my machine on the same thing as before happened sign in blue screen restart sign in blue screen restart ect Since that wasn't getting me anywhere i cut the power again and swapped it back to the TP-LINK adapter But this time the problem had gotten worse the computer wouldn't boot at all I have no idea how to fix this so any help whatsoever would be deeply appreciated Things I Have Tried using the ASUS adapter using the TP-LINK adapter removing the adapter entirely removing the GPU removing the drive removing the drive and trying to make it boot of the windows OEM disc trying to boot a different OS of a completely different drive a friend lent me a hard drive he used for testing PCs it used linux and nothing came up trying to boot my drive on a different computer problem is probably a lot bigger than a bad driver because now the second computer i used to test my drive has the exact same issue

When i plug the logetich into the back audio jack and the headset into the front only the headset works and vice versa. I am so confused I don't understand why both audios cant work together. Also it seems that both are being recognized as the same speaker unit. can anyone help?

It wont work if its not unplugged or minimized for less than 30seconds. So basically I spend alot of my time in 25 man Ulduar doing this and I'm so sick of it. I'm guessing it's a setting in my Power Options that I have set incorrectly. It's not a heat issue as my laptop runs very cold at all times with the fans I use.

However when I start the install procedure through DOS it overheats and shuts down. However I do not have this issue in windows.

Also I have two odd issues in windows, one it wont read disks in windows but it will in DOS.

Also when I press the caps lock key I loose the keyboard and touchpad. So i need to restart.

I have ensured the BIOS, Motherboard and Keyoard drivers are all up to date.

A:Strange issue

Hi Richard and Welcome to TSF,

If we back up a bit to the reinstallation part. What makes you think it got overheated during the process? Does it just shut down or are you given any faultcodes etc?

What you should do is:
Make a proper backup.
Start the installation > Choose Custom install.
Remove all partitions available.
Mark the "Unallocated space" > New partition > Create.
Mark it > Format > Continue with installation.

i had problems with xp service pack 2, now as i said i cannot run anything in control panel, because rundll32.exe is missing it says but the file is in system32 directory, i beleive it is a kind of registry problem, after then wahtever i want to run it says application not found, andthen doesnt matter what kind of program i want to install windows tries to associate with a program, a dialog box appears and than doesn't setup any program. i don't understand at all what is the problem. i had a lot of spyware i clean them all before install sp2. help me out

one more thing is that even if i try to associate a program the dialog box which contains files and folders it disappears by itself.

A:very strange issue

Register the file by using Regsvr32.exe. For example, type the following command in Start - Run:

Regsvr32 rundll32.exe

If it registers, the following success code is displayed:

DllRegisterServer in rundll32.exe succeeded.

A:Strange HDD issue

I've herd tale of SATA cables working themselves loose and causing what you described exactly...the cause of this is from the electrical current itself. However minimal the current, the current vibrates and given certain circumstances and conditions this vibration has led to fires. Those conditions are all based on the product quality, installation of product and the type of area that the wires are being installed.

Mind you this is info for a house...which I've personally seen the result of and me and my crew got the job of renovating half of a house. This came right from the Fire Marshall and Fire investigator.

Now all that being said the electrical current can cause the SATA connection to vibrate just enough to partially disrupt the signal so it's not being recognized. As we all know, some of those SATA cable connectors are not that snug fitting.

hmm.. i reinstalled windows 7 and now no BSOD come yet. but i got another problem. i don't know what's going on, well follow my problem. when i shut down my computer and when display goes of, it's sid on monitor as a normal.. monitor goes to sleep. and that's cool but sumtimes more often ,, CPU itself, not switching off.. i ahve to press power button for few seconds to switch it off by force. and the second problem. after i 'm away from my pc and when it's an idle, and when i return and wanna enter to my pc.. when i click my mouse or even keyboard.. nothing changes, it still keeps sleeping (idling) and CPU works.. but can't enter into display ( it's still on idle mode) this thing wasn't happening for WINXP and after installing WINDOWS 7, im getting fed up of this bugs plz suggest

A:Strange Issue !

You may have to press the power button to wake the computer. Sometimes computers set their USB devices to power down during sleep mode which is why you can wake the computer with them.

There's most likely an option in your BIOS for Power Management > Wake by USB, Mouse, Keyboard, etc. If you turn on those settings then it might work.

A:Strange Issue

<<...System Mechanic>>I just cannot imagine feeling the need to install this program...on Windows 7. My first guess would be that it contributes to whatever problems you have experineced.Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.
Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.
Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.
The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.Ed Bott's Webog: Why I don't use registry cleaners Do I need a Registry Cleaner?I would remove System Mechanic from the system...run chkdsk /r...run the sfc /scannow command or do a repair install...and then see how the system functions.Louis

This is very weird. We had a power outage today. The Compaq Presario SR2170NX would not boot back up. On opening the case we found the cpu fan wires "shredded" and broken off at differing lengths, no sign of the plug end, and no sign of any pieces of the wire. We bought the computer new and we have not been into this case. Computer will not boot now and shuts itself off after a few seconds after startup. Help!
 

A:Strange cpu fan issue

Does it look like the wires could have been destroyed by one of the fans? If not, and there is no sign of animal life in the case (seriously, I've known of mice/rats to infest the cases). I'd suggest returning it to where you got it, if it's still under warranty.

Hi, im having problems with two new devices i have bought for my computer.

The first is a linksys wireless g network adapter which is in perfect working order on its own.
The second is a Trust USB2 HiRes Webcam (wb-3500t) which also works fine independantly.

As stated on their own both these devices work, but when they are both plugged in together i get a messege informing me that my network adapter has malfunctioned and and windows cannoct detect what it is. When i remove the webcam from the USB slot again the network adapter works again.

I have been told this may be an IRQ issue but i have no idea what that means or how to solve it. Help would be appreciated. Thanks

You also have to add UDP 28960, UDP 3101-3105, and UDP 1500 ports for inbound and outbound to your xbox. Post back if you get it working or got any troubles.

Are you running DHCP on your router? if so, you will need to give your xbox a static IP, so that it doesn't affect your port forwarding every time you reset your router. This means that when you port forward you should forward the ports to your Xbox's IP

After this, I could not get Windows to boot up, it would hang at the windows loading screen, the bar kept loading, but it would go on indefinetly. I attempted to run the Windows XP repair tool, but it would get to the "setup is now loading windows" screen and hang there indefinetly. I attempted to try this with a few different hard drives, and the problem continues. I flashed my bios settings, but that did no good. Does anyone have any troubleshooting advice on this matter?

I don't know if this has anything to do with your problem because I seldom use Office, but have you looked at this in IE?

IE Properties, Programs Tab, HTML Editor

Does it say Microsoft Word? If not, Word should be in the drop down list so you can change it.

Hi there, I'm quite familiar with working in Audition. I find the interface more comfortable for my needs than the newer Soundbooth.

For just installing a new graphics card, you didn't have to reformat & reinstall 7, but a fresh clean start is great. I have a few questions for specifics...

1. How did you reinstall Windows 7? Did you restore from an image or do a clean install from your disc?

2. How did you install Adobe Audtion? Was it part of a CS collection? Do you have an .iso file you loaded, the retail disc, or a disc you made?

I don't have a reason to lie you and copy all my user system files to the other HDD. What we have here is some very strange bug of some kind. G\D&S is actually C\D&S... But why it seems like it is all in the other HDD I don't know...

The D&S folders had Deny to read rule applied to Everyone.

A:Very strange issue.

are you sure you have NEVER put that disk before???? also... it may be pausible that you have a RAID 1 setup mirrored all your data onto the other hard drive....
just a remote possibility..... :-?

Hi guys, Lately some strange things happened to my windows Xp Home edition... Well this happened about 5 times...

I was working on something on my computer (like going online etc..) and when I clicked on the Start Menu or On MY MUSIC folder... suddenly the taskbar and icons and software disappears and I am left seeing only my wallpaper. The computer does not restart, just everything disappears. Then it comes back..like reloads everything back. Funny... The internet connection is not affected. I don't know what this is. but it happens from time to time.

Next, can someone recommend good software to maintain the computer.. I heard that windows xp deframenter and utility software like that isnt that good!

thanks

the problem is whenever i try to use the modem directly without a switch it begins a chain of reboots and this continues..it happens in both vista and xp and in both the lan slots in my motherboard.even if i plug it via netgear router same thing happens , but this does not happen using a frontech switch

help
 

A:Strange Issue--Help!!!

Your "modem" is a modem/router, FWIW.

If you connect through the switch, the network works? If so, and it doesn't connected directly to the modem, my guess would be a power/grounding issue between the devices.

With all the good anti-spyware products out there, I don't understand how you ended up with something called "Seek & Destroy". I have 6 free anti-spyware programs on my pc(all free), but I never heard of "Seek & Destroy".

Unfortunatly, there have been a lot of problems associated with ZoneAlarm recently. You might try the ZoneAlarm help forums.

I've decied to build a custom gameing computer and im not sure if the parts I have selected will work with Win7 or work together at all.

I know there is no power supply in this list and if you have any suggestions for parts that are in the same price range that would allso be helpful (Im only ordering stuff from newegg) thanks for any help/advice you can provide.

A:New custom computer

The cpu you picked is LGA 1366 and the board is 1155; two completely different sockets.

How about this board, which is rated better than the Biostar: Newegg.com - ASRock P67 PRO3 SE LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb&#47;s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
And this cpu, which is also better: Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz &#40;3.8GHz Turbo Boost&#41; 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600

As for the RAM, after you select a motherboard, go to their website and download their QVL (qualified vendor list) pdf. It will tell you all the kits of RAM that are known to work well with the board. Never buy RAM cause they have shimmery heatsinks or because the name sounds good.

Seagate makes good drives. This would be great as a secondary game app drive... so what about an SSD to really make the rig fast?

Is this custom computer ok?
I didn't get it yet.

ECS K7S5A
AMD Athlon XP 2000+ w/fan (or maybe 2100+)
512MB PC133
40GB 7200RPM IDE HDD
16X DVD-ROM
GeForce4 MX-440 64MB SDRAM
USB 2.0 4 external, 1 internal
2 scroll optical mouse (got it)
Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro (got it)
KDS 1280x1024 CRT Monitor (got it)

is this good for around $400?
 

A:Is this custom computer ok?

Gah! Ditch the K7S5A, man. And get DDR! You won't regret it, trust me. Your RAM and system board would pose a serious bottleneck, especially with a CPU that fast. You should get like an nForce2 or smth like that. You won't regret it.

Anyway I gotta go...good luck.

I am having the sometimes problem of certain keys not working, specifically "5 6 ` _ %" & as shifted "^ ~ -" (they were working for typing just now).  When they are not working, I can usually get "5 -" from the number pad.  The problem comes and goes, and when it happens all 4 of those keys are dead, so it would appear to be a driver glitch. For this model, I do not see any driver file for the keyboard; in that setion there seem to be 2 driver files, sp72284,exe & sp72344.exe, which are listed as TouchPad drivers.  Back in November when I first started seeing this, somehow I downloaded the files: sp71716.exesp71811.exesp72342.exesp72343.exesp72549.exe But I have no idea if I should run any of them. The OS build is 10568.218

We have an employee who technically is the entire staff of a subsidiary. He's using a Dell laptop identical in hardware and software to our regular employees. The problem is, when we send him an e-mail in HTML format, his Outlook displays it as Plain Text.

Now the only difference here is that he is using an IMAP account from 1and1, while the rest of us are using internal Exchange. I have verified that his setting in his Outlook is not enabled, to display all messages in Plain Text.

I'm at a loss to explain what is going on, so I'm about to open a ticket with 1and1.

Hi I hope I'm posting this in the appropriate forum I will try to make this long story as short as possible I had an HP ZV that my dog spilled nyquil on -- obviously it was fried At the time I had accidental coverage strange very issue startup so very strange startup issue sent it in to HP to be fixed When it came back it was in the body of a ZX which I assumed was done because they had the same processors However it had the following startup issue I really needed the computer so could not afford the time to send back to HP On the first startup it will either start very slowly hanging at different points of the XP blue status bar or will power up and just have a blank screen As a workaround I can manually turn off and on the power until it eventually loads 'normally ' I should also mention when it has slow startup it runs very slowly as well If I do a restart it also starts up fine and generally runs fine after this I have tried everything I can think of checking RAM reintsalling XP which I don't mind doing again starting with no services or drivers installed etc etc I am starting to think it might be a motherboard issue but after reading countless posts and articles it doesn't seem to exhibit the usual motherboard issues of just shutting down suddenly On a side note -- I tried posting this new thread on IE and Firefox and keep getting page cannot be displayed same issue with sending in Yahoo mail but I can address this separately if need be I am using a different computer to post this Any ideas on the startup issue would be greatly apprciated Cheers Schneep

I have a homebuilt PC Windows Ultimate I could give you specs but I don't know why that would be helpful Anyway I'm having this issue where the computer won't turn on It blinks on then off fans start and stop then flickers on again then turns off completely This is after I issue Strange read please - got the Driver Power State Failure BSOD Can't give you the minidump since it won't turn on This happened before I had my university's clean room take a look at it They thought as I did that Strange issue - please read it Strange issue - please read was the PSU They swapped it out and tested the levels everything was fine In fact after those few things they did the computer turned on again and worked as usual with the original PSU We concluded it must've been a faulty power strip Well clearly that wasn't the problem I just don't understand what's going on here The fact that it fixed itself before just adds to the confusion I also don't know how that BSOD error fits into all of this Thanks

A:Strange issue - please read

It is a mystery but I think maybe a connection to the motherboard was not tight or had dirt or debris that was moved when all the connections were made then unmade and made again. Did you check these connections? As a builder of my first system and recently upgrading my PSU only to find a connection I would have sworn was made tight wasn't.
Oh and welcome to SF.

A:Strange issue with my Pen Drives.

Do the drives work alright on other computers?

If I am to understand correctly, the machine seems to freeze when trying to access the drive but when it is restarted, it works fine? Is this first attempt coming from a cold boot (being off)?

Also, do any other flash drives do this? How about usb-based hard drives? card readers? (if you have any of the others to test, of course)

I just replaced the HD in my laptop with an SSD and did a clean install of Windows 8.1. I have a very strange issue now. When I first try to run a program the icons disappear from the desktop for a second then reappear but the program doesn't run. The second time a do this the program starts right away. This happens with every program and Windows feature. If I double click on Control Panel it doesn't run the first time but starts immediately the second time I double click it...

Has anyone even heard of suck a strange thing?

A:Strange issue with Windows 8.1 and SSD

That would not be an SSD issue. That is Windows 8 & the Video driver causing that. Look in Administrative Tools > Events, and see if any problems are showing up. Also depending on the chipset manufacturer for the Graphics chipset for your computer. Download the driver directly from the mfg of the chipset website, vs. using the drivers that Windows 8.1 loaded.

I work for a university's tech department and I have come across an issue that I cannot figure out.

Unless a user is set up as a local administrator on the machine, various programs will not run, or will crash after a short period of time, such as the ClipArt function in MS Office 2000, Symantec Antivirus 9 (when pulling up the control center), Windows Media Player, MMC, and others.

Everything works perfectly if the user is set up as a local admin, and the same holds true for any user, so it is not a corrupt profile issue or something along those lines. Policy is that users cannot be local admins, so I am at a loss for what could be causing this or what I can do to repair it.

I've tried the usual - spyware and virus scans, Windows Updates, etc., but nothing seems to fix it.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi everyone

Just wondered if you could help me out with a strange printer problem i seem to be having. I have just setup my parents new machine so i have set myself up with the normal admin account. I installed there lexmark printer and i can print from word and print emails out and web pages no problem. I have set both my parents up with a standard account each and they to can print documents from work no problem by selecting the lexmark printer from the drop down menu but for some reason they cant print web pages or web based emails. When you try to print all that is avaliable is the XPS document printer thing, any ideas why they cant print from the web to this printer?

Hope you can help

Many thanks

A:Strange printer issue can you help me out?

You don't say what printer it is, other than just Lexmark but if when you go to File then Print in any program if the printer software is properly installed it should show up in the drop down menu. Have you got it set as the default printer. Go to Control panel, Devices and printers, right click on the printer concerned and select "Set as default printer"
