Q: Computer/motherboard manufacturer

Hi all,

I have heard of somethings like computer manufacturer and motherborad manufacurer. For example some time ago, when I had problem with my desktop PC, some asked me what's your computer manufacturer and motherborad manufacurer?
what's the difference between these two please?

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.)

I reently acquired a motherboard but need to find the manufacturer so I can find out how to connect the front panel connector (so I can power it up)
there ia a logo that is a circle with (sort of) 2 upside down L's.
The numbers on the board are SL-2 94V-0. It has an AMD chip though I don't know if it is a 32 or 64 bit. It uses a VT8237 bridge and a Pheonix bios D686.
I know it is a 1.8Ghz cpu. There is a number on the bottom 18V5720C406210101.

can anyone help?

I'm not gifted with a lot of system building experience but am in the process of advice Motherboard/Manufacturer desperately needed building Motherboard/Manufacturer advice desperately needed one for home theater and transcoding functions I have purchased an Intel Core i k and I prefer the Z chipset I purchased the Gigabyte micro-atx GA-Z MX-UD Motherboard/Manufacturer advice desperately needed H-B Rev motherboard at a local store and after trying different enclosures finally put everything together using a Corsair Obsidian D case I installed Windows Pro x and all seemed okay at first The first hint of badness was when wired network functions using the integrated NIC were flaky my attempts to download any relatively large files would freeze consistently I found that I also couldn't even transfer large fires from a NAS box on my local LAN Then as I continued using the system in its limited state for a couple of days other things began to degrade blue screens sudden system resets etc Now it won't even boot any longer - I tried booting from the Win disk and running recovery but that also failed I could get ABSOLUTELY NO support from Gigabyte and before the system disintegrated I was unable to use their Download Center driver scan adviser utility with either IE or Firefox browsers - again no support from Gigabyte I'm now dead in the water and completely on my own So I'm shopping for a replacement motherboard Since I ended up with a much larger case than originally planned I can accommodate a full ATX motherboard The two I'm considering are relatively new boards from ASUS P Z -V PRO GEN and Intel BOXDZ BC both LGA Z I may choose to purchase a discrete high-end graphics card in the near future but my needs are focused more on using it to accelerate video transcoding and producing good HDMI graphics than on gaming My main concerns are Board quality reliability flexibility Ability to easily get driver BIOS updates as they become available and Good tech support when needed I would greatly appreciate advice from any savvy system builder s who have enough experience with ASUS and Intel products to offer a recommendation to help me decide Any recommendation for a different motherboard model would also be welcome as long as it is NOT Gigabyte Big thanks in advance for any help Sincerely Bruce Reid

Any Ideas? the reason asking is the tower has several ports in the front(Usb, sound, firewire) they do not work. Thee wires are bundled and end in a female plug just below PCI slots. Actually there was a SCSI board in a slot just above the plug but did not appear to be connected.

I at Computer State Cloning Manufacturer am about to purchase a laptop and if there is anything I ve learned over the years it s that these companies like to cram laptops with useless software most of which expires after a certain amount of time thus making it even more useless What I would like to do after purchasing the laptop is completely Cloning Computer at Manufacturer State format the hard drive and then install my own copy of Windows along with software that I do use If anything ever goes wrong however the originally installed version of Windows along with the manufacturer s software utilities will most likely be needed for warranty So my question is about how to make a perfect copy of the hard drive before formatting it I have Partition Magic which has an option called quot Copy Partition quot which I imagine is what I am looking for but I would like to make sure I don t do anything wrong Would I install Partition Magic make a hidden partition that is large enough for the currently installed version of Windows and the extra quot bundled quot software and then copy Windows and the software to it After which I would then format the rest of the hard drive and then install my own version of Windows there If anything ever goes wrong I would format the partition I was working with and copy the hidden partition back to it Is this the correct thing to do and if so is there anything else I should be aware of before doing this For example will the original version of windows still function correctly if I ever did have to restore it I always hear about people doing this and I assume this is what they do Thank you in advance nbsp

I ask this because the DiabloKeys keylogger has been detected on two of my systems, both of which were manufactured by HP within about a year of each other. After reading a little about this keylogger, however, it appears to only have a malicious use. I want to make sure of this before taking action.

A:By any chance, would DiabloKeys be installed by a computer manufacturer?

Manufacturers do not install keyloggers. Even the stupidest of company executives would see the effect such a thing would have on sales. An what exactly would they do with the info, provided that they had also installed some method of transferring the data?

It was either picked up on the net or installed by someone else.

Hey guys,
I've had a problem where I would put my laptop to sleep, and when it wakes up it doesn't save my session; it's basically boots from scratch so when I log in it has to reload all background applications as well as restoring my open applications.
I've posted this here because it may be related to the Intel HD Graphics 4400 driver I recently updated (with which I can't roll back, as I just reset the system).

Any response associated with this question is appreciated.

A:Computer starting from manufacturer boot animation after suspend/sleep

Are you sure it sleeps? It might hibernate instead. Hibernation involves saving the RAM into hard disk and then switch off. When you switch it on again it reads the disk and copies the data back to RAM. This takes more time than waking from a sleep state. Do that again and observe the power LED. If it goes off completely, it probably hibernates. If it goes yellow or is slowly blinking it sleeps.

A:Latitude D-630 Hardware Problems Detected -You will need to contact the Computer Manufacturer

Could be a bad memory module or a bad socket.  Unplug the system, remove the battery and swap the two modules.  If the error follows the module when re-tested, replace that memory module.
If it sticks to the other module in the same socket where the initial failure occurred, it's the socket that's faulty - replace the mainboard.

A:XP is different from manufacturer to manufacturer?

The OS is the same, but the HP recovery disks will include the drivers needed for your system only(as built), more like a image of the original installation then a OS install disk.
Oem disks from the major manufacturers like Dell and HP will be set to look at the Bios on install to be sure it's Dell for example and not even ask for a key when installed on a qualified system.

Okay, this is probably a bad way to start my first post. I have just installed Vista 64-bit OS. All good except I ran into the infamous display driver stopped responding error. I believe my video card went bad, as it works without a hitch with a different card.

My question - I want to buy a new video card (no more than $150). Would you recommend I steer clear of certain manufacturers. This is not an NVidia/ATI question. Rather, my eVGA card went bad after 1 year, and I'm wondering if certain cards (Sapphire, eVGA, others) have a shorter lifespan. I'm guessing Vista and 7 will have higher demands and I don't wanna get burned again so quickly.

Will I regret buying the Sapphire Radeon HD 4770?
Another eVGA?
MSI or VisionTek?
Nvidia and ATI are both fine. I just want a card that will last

The laptops from Lenovo/IBM usually come without CDs which contain a backup OS for your computer. The manufacturer(Lenovo/IBM) allocates an area on the Hard Disk and put a backup OS there. You can do recovery from there if needed. But I'm afraid I can't do recovery if something really bad happens to my HD. Can I burn the OS to CDs/DvDs so that I can put them in a safe place?

so basically, does it matter that ive put win 7 on it? should i try and put xp back on it before it goes off to them? advice appreciated, thankyou!

A:manufacturer warranty..

Normally your warranty is no longer valid if you change / add hardware. Upgraded OS should in my opinion not void your warranty.

Anyone here know who makes the bios for HP? From my understanding there are only a select few companies who make bios chips (ie: Pheonix, Award). Trying to locate this on an old HP compaq DC7600U. When booting into the bios it says that (HP Compaq business system bios) is the name??? Did they make their own bios? Only other way I know of is to rip the computer appart and locate it on the Mobo.

This may not be the correct section, if not feel free to move it.

I was checking on some stuff in the PC Settings section, and noticed that somehow the computer name, and even the manufacturer is wrong. I have a two week old Dell named Robby, the information showing is for my old pc, an Acer named 5732. So The name should be Robby and manufacturer is Dell, but it is named 5732 and manufacturer as Acer.

I guess my first question is, I know the computer has synced with something, but I have no idea what I have set to sync. My next question is how to reset this so that it doesn't just change back an hour later.

In both BIOS and Device Manager, the name is HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GUC0N. When I searched the internet I couldn't find any useful information. In Device Manager, when I opened the driver's Properties dialog, for manufacturer it said, "Standard CD-ROM Drives." When I searched for that phrase, all I found was a 2006 Microsoft webpage which said that that phrase means that I need to go inside a folder which doesn't exist and edit a file which File Explorer can't find. I gather from the article that there's probably an error somewhere, but I don't know how to resolve it or what I can do instead.

Samsung, Micron, Cruical are among top. If the memory works that you bought, and has a warranty - don't worry about it.

I'm a bit confused as to go for Intel or AMD too, who is coming out on top in tests? What little reasearch I've done seems to show that the equivalent AMD is a fair bit cheaper than the Intel. Is this true?

I got an oem copy of Windows XP Home as i wanted to reformat my PC.
During the installation it never asked for my licence key, although now it keeps asking for me to activate, so im guessing i put the key in then.
But when i go to system info in my computer it shows a logo of fujitsu systems even though in dxdiag it shows the manufacture being OEM, which is what i want.
I dont have any other copies of home as i lost my original, any way to get rid of this fuji thing? And will this effect my activation and licence key?

A:Manufacturer's update applications?

Hello Vincenzo,

Most updates are for the better since they are usually to fix bugs, security risks, compatibility issues, and sometimes add features.

It's best to read the release notes to see what the new version is for to see if it applies to you or not to bother updating to.

I've just done a clean install of Win 7 (w/HD format) without much problem. I've also downloaded all device drivers from my mobo manufacturer (Asus) and Nvidea video card, etc. I'd like to replace some of the Win 7 default drivers (chipset & audio for example) with the one's I've downloaded (they all contain setup.exe apps to install them).

My simple question is, can I just run the device driver setup.exe over the Win 7 default drivers, or do I need to go the each device in Device Manager and use the "Driver Update" and (I think) locate the correct .ini file or use some other method? Obviously using the set.exe is easiest, so long as there are no problems installing over the Win 7 default drivers (some of which seem to lack some of the manufacturer's device functionality). Please help! Thanks a lot, -- S

A:Installing Manufacturer Drivers

You should be able to install the drivers using the executable (exe) without messing with device manager. So go ahead, use the installer... Only if the installation fails would you do driver update. Driver update doesn't always find the best drivers for the devices.

I'll be really thankfull if someone could save my laptop =)

A:Bsod even after Manufacturer Restore

Hello bossno and welcome to Seven Forums.

Fist, your English is fine. You don't want to hear/see my French!!

I'm going to assume it's not a software issue since you restored the laptop. Again, I'm assuming that when you say you did a "full restore" you mean you either restoed to factory specifications using a hidden factory restore partiion, or you used a previous system image. (If you did something else to restore your laptop, please explain exactly what you mean by a "full restore".)

If we rule out software issues, that leaves hardware. Maybe your hard drive is failing, or maybe one of your memory modules is going bad. One of the Forum experts prepared this troubleshooting tutorial. The first part talks about checking for hardware issues. Suggest you work through the items.

-Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-820QM Quad Core Processor 1.73GHz/8MB L3 Cache/1333MHz FSB with Turbo Boost up to 3.06GHz

-8GB DDR3 System Memory (4 Dimm)

-500GB 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection

-1GB ATI Mobility Radeon (TM) HD 4830 Graphics - For i7 Processors

-and most importantly it has a 15in 1920x1080p screen, finally I found a 15in laptop with a FULL HD screen.

anyways what you guys think?? worth the money?? safe to buy from Ebay?? also the seller has a %100 postive feedback.

It's a blue and white logo (visit, it's on the top left), and it's making the blue part white, and the white part blue.

I want to back up my system by cloning the entire HDD. I have a 25GB recovery partition created by the notebook manufacturer, ASUS, as part of the OEM Recovery Disks.

Should I also include it with the Windows partitions or just ignore it altogether?

Thanks in advance.

A:Manufacturer's recovery partition

You say you want to clone the entire HDD. If you mean that, yes, you'd have to include the 25 GB partition.

If you exclude it, you would not then later be able to recover to factory specifications using that 25 GB partition. It wouldn't exist.

You probably can make a set of recovery disks that will provide the same functionality as the recovery partition, although those disks would not be as reliable as the partition.

And of course you may have little or no interest in ever being able to restore to factory specifications, in which case you can exclude the recovery partition.

Lastly--I wouldn't consider a clone to be a backup. If you want to back up, think about imaging rather than cloning.

I don't think my PC has the driver installed and I don't have any information about the CD-ROM drive because the box and info was thrown out years ago. Any way I can recognize the manufacturer using just my PC? Is there a sort of universal CD-ROM driver I can use? Thanks.

Linksys has a tradition of being touted as one of the name What's brand wireless manufacturer? your favorite best home grade router and wireless networking devices as well as wired of course Anybody can do wired But it seems when it comes to wireless they re reluctant to maintain a driver set that supports the latest upgrades Vista is not supported by my wireless What's your favorite brand name wireless manufacturer? B card for example and the router it authenticates with has not seen a firmware update from Linksys for quite some time A firmware update would be great for that router if they would finally address an issue it has with high amounts of UDP traffic causing it to freeze requiring a reset Some people think these things should just be regarded as water under the bridge and that I should just toss the equipment in the trash with a smile and spend more money on new equipment But others like me know that this hardware is still capable of performing well if only it were supported with an occasional driver update or firmware release So enough about my gripe with Linksys If you guys think it s still quot the quot then I ll buy it again But if anyone out there thinks there s a competing manufacturer who s customer service support and functionality reliability of their hardware rivals or beats Linksys I m all ears nbsp

A:What's your favorite brand name wireless manufacturer?

I've tried Linksys, Dlink, Netgear, and Belkin. I've always gotten the strongest and most reliable signal with my Belkin Pre-N equipment. I've had it for about 3 years so it's a little outdated but has never given me any problems.

I recently had to reformat my computer to the factory defaults, on my case it’s a Toshiba. After re-installing the operating system I went to the ”Programs and Features” panel to remove any trial programs and I was shocked when I saw about 10 different programs/utilities from Toshiba,  I went ahead and removed the common trial programs that usually come in a new pc such as, Office, Norton etc. but left anything that says Toshiba since it is the manufacturer of the laptop and I didn’t know to what extent they modify the OS, which is basically my question.
1- To what extent does a PC manufacturer modifies the OS (Windows), if any?
2- Can I safely remove any programs from the pc manufacturer without corrupting the OS?
3- What could be considered the default Windows 7 programs that typically show in the ”Programs and Features” panel?
Thanks a lot

A:Is it safe to remove software from the PC manufacturer

Yes & No!  You need to take care and ask lots of questions many items are woven ito the system, take your time so you get it right.  You will probably do it a few times ove the life of the system as junk sneaks in.  Check post below for more.

Hey all,

I have an HP Laptop, and when I turn it on I see the HP logo instead of the system specs being tested, the ram, processor etc...

Can this be disabled?

Have you seen this thread in the Device Drivers forum?:

BTW, don't take this the wrong way but a little punctuation would make your post much more readable.
