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.)

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'. http://gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3166&dl=1#dl 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.

I have an older (2001) Gateway system and want to upgade from my current tiny 20gb HD. BestBuy currently has a good deal on a Seagate ST3160023A-RK 160gb 7200rpm internal drive for $75 total my cost and I was thinking of buying two as they seem to be a highly rated drive with five year warranty.

I've been told by Gateway that my case will accommodate two drives but wanted advice as to which was a better way to go - with two 160's or one 300gb drive? I plan on storing a lot of my music CD's in preparation for transfer to my new Kenwood Music Keg in my truck.

Some basic details on my current system - 1.3GHz Pentium 4 - 512MB RDRAM - WIN XP SP 1 (upgrade from WIN ME) - 250W Power Supply.
 

A:HD replacement questions

i would go with 2drives - in case one goes down.
also make sure the motherboard/bios support that size drive - you may find they only see 120GB or a lot less 36Gb I think

I need to replace the WD Caviar 60GB EIDE HD from my COMPAQ Presario desktop PC, Model 5003 US. The failed drive is dated 13FEb2001. This is a 5400 RPM drive, with 2MB buffer and a max data rate of 100MB although some versions of the same model are lower data rates per the WD spec sheet.

Do i need to replace this with an exact duplicate or can I install the drives advertised as 7200RPM and/or 8MB buffer?

Also, I may decide to install two internal HD drives to separate the OS from data. The COMPAQ manual says the existing data cable must be replaced when installing a slave drive, although it includes a second plug for a spare drive. Is the COMPAQ statement valid and what type of replacement cable would be required? Where are they available?

Any advice and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Is the architecture of a component something to consider when looking to replace? I currently have an AMD fx-8300 and I'm kinda looking at the NVidia GeForce GTX 780. The specifications for mine say its architecture is piledriver whereas the 780 says its Kepler. Does this matter? If not can I replace mine with the 780?
 

A:Solved: Gpu replacement questions

You seem to be comparing CPU's and with GPU's. The FX-8300 is a processor and it's based on Piledriver, the GTX 780 is a graphics card and it's based on the Keplar design; these are two separate things.

What do you need to make sure is that you have a case that will physically accommodate the GTX 780 for both size and cooling and that you have a quality power supply with sufficient wattage to power the GTX 780. NVidia recommends a minimum 600 watt power supply for the GTX 780 and it should be a quality brand and not some cheap unit.

Hello, Have a need to replace LCD screen for Ideapad 300S. It seems laptop was bought last Dec and a slight ding on the back of display was enough to distort the LCD screen. The laptop came with FHD(1920x1080) screen. While looking for a replacement for the same model, I see an IPS version as well:https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/model/IBM-Lenovo/IDEAPAD~300S~80Q4000MUS/ Questions:(1) Was wondering if I can replace the current screen with IPS screen. Will that work?(2) Can I replace just the LCD without opening the whole laptop? i.e. just work through LCD bezel and do that? Of course, I need to be careful not to damage the LCD converter cable. Is that feasible or is it too risky an approach and I should open the cover, disconnect the cable from system board first and go that route? Thanks for you help.

I need to replace the battery in my P-6301 Gateway Notebook. Any website recommendations?

By going to the Gateway website I was directed to four vendors selling replacement batteries. The cheapest of the four is at http://www.mundocorp.com.

For my notebook there are two choices, a 6 cell LI-ION battery for $64.00 or a 9 cell LI-ION battery for $114.00. In previous research I believe I found that the original battery was a 6 cell.

Do I need to replace the battery with the 6 cell battery only, or do I have the option of buying the 9 cell to give me more power?

Thanks for your help.

A:Which replacement motherboard?

You are not going to find any new socket A type boards any longer. If you want to stay with that cpu, then you would need to buy one used. You might find a deal on an old board from a local shop OR you can try ebay. One big problem is that boards from that era, almost all used the same bad caps. If you do find one, you may have the same problem down the road.

FWIW I would just get a modern motherboard, cpu, ram, and pw supply and be done with the issue. Note unless you buy a board with onboard video, you will need a new video card as well.

Hello friends, love your very informative forum. I have an issue i believe you can help me with, i am setting up my old desktop computer for a family member, but its motherboard is not working. The motherboard was Gigabyte Ga-m68m-S2P and they are long out of the market. Since a DDR2 motherboard is very expensive in my country (about 110 euros) could i just buy a new motherboard and new rams and swap them? It would save me half the money but i am not sure what happens about compatibility. The cpu is an old athlon II and the gpu was an old geforce i dont remember the right model. Can you inform me about the subject and answer me if this is doable?

I may need to replace the motherboard or CPU. If one of these 2 needs to be replaced, is it still possible to maintain all other parts? Are there still (new) parts available that would fit in this setting? The price does not matter, the cheapest one that fits in this system would be ok.

A:Motherboard replacement help !

It is a faster configuration compared to your current Pentium 4 PC and the graphics support is light years ahead compared to your old Intel 845 graphics controller. You can use the stock heatsink/cooler that comes with the APU which is sufficient. But one thing you should keep in mind that the configuration is pretty basic and wont perform great on demanding applications and can be used best for light load usage like word processing, Internet browsing etc. Since the AMD APU had good graphics hardware you can enjoy HD videos too without issues. For such a low price it is a worthy replacement if you cant go with a more capable hardware like Core i3 platform which costs close to 3 times than the Combo you said. Also add 8 GB of DDR3 RAM to make sure every thing perform maximum possible.

For your only real question, DDR2 800 Should work on mobos supporting DDR2 1200. As for whether it supports 4GB or not the specifications page of the product you choose should answer the question.

Compatible with IntelĀ® 6XX, 5XX and 3XX processors.

It needs to be PCI-E as well. Now, I am clueless with most PC hardware, and there seems to be a ton of options on somewhere like scan.co.uk, so some advice would be really helpful!

To make a long story short, I have a Gateway computer in which I found to have a bad motherboard. I have purchased a used Asus P4 motherboard/2.4 mhz CPU combo to breathe life back into her. The hard drive already has Windows XP Home installed on it and I would like to continue using everything currently installed on the hard drive, as well as the operating system already in place, as is. Realizing that Windows XP Home is going to find LOTS of new hardware installed when I finally boot this thing up, what is the best approach to this upgrade? I do have the driver disk for the board on hand. Should I simply boot it up and let it search for the drivers on the CD, or is this going to be a much more difficult upgrade?

Hi all,
I have recently had hardware failure in my DIY PC (most likely the motherboard).
I have taken it to a repair shop to have it diagnosed and was wondering if I could get some suggestions for a new motherboard if it turns out to be that.
I use my PC for heavy gaming as well as geometric map design and need a reliable (relatively cheap) board that is capable of supporting the hardware I am currently using (9800gt asus overclocked) pentium 2 2.8ghz processor.
asus Xonar D2x Audio (pcie).
It should also be noted that my old motherboard was a socket 775. (and the new one should be the same).
Can you reccomend one without an nforce chipset as well as these seem to be useless.
Thanks for your responses
Satch

I have tried to obtain replace my defective mobo with an identical mobo for my machine but can't.
What are the issues if I get a motherboard which has the same form factor and processor socket and swap into my machine using the same peripherals I currently use. I don't want to have to re-install operating systems etc. Are there any issues that I may encounter in doing this?? Many thank AL..

Hello,

Wondering if anyone has come across this motherboard before:
"Kobian PVM890M 1.0"



I purchased a number of clone PC's in an auction for schools in Africa, and some of them have been diagnosed with Faulty Motherboards, and these PC's are fitted with this motherboard.

Running Windows XP Pro

I would like to replace these motherboards, using the same Processors and Memory that came with the PC's.
I am told the Processor fitted is "Socket Type", and the Power Supply that goes on the motherboard has "10 pins".
Could anyone help identify the type of MotherBoard, which replacement type should I be looking for, and if anyone can point me in the direction of a source of supply for this,



Grateful thank you.

A:Possible motherboard replacement

Here's the Manual: Service Manual If you try to go Intel you will need to buy a motherboard, and a processor and a heatsink/fan.  If you go AMD all you need is the motherboard since your cooling fan/heatsink can be ported over, and the processor is soldered to the board.  This is the motherboard you want: System board (includes replacement thermal materials): For use only with models with an AMD A6-5200 processor ? Models with Windows 8 Standard 730670-501 ? Models with Windows 8 Professional 730670-601 I am going to assume you have Windows standard.  HP does not have the A6 AMD board in the store....they only have the A4 board and it is stupid expensive: https://parts.hp.com/hpparts/Search_Results.aspx?mscssid=AE6D55D28A8C42CE89A8C049F3D07655&SearchIn=PartNumber&SearchPN=730671-501 Since you do not have one to exchange, it is going to cost close to $500. I can find you a good used Intel 250 G1 for that price.  You can find the board for $67 on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-255-G1-Laptop-Motherboard-AMD-A-Series-A4-5000-1-50-GHz-730671-501-TESTED-/291792328450?hash=item43f02d9702:g:298AAOSwM4xXYC9Q I know you wanted something a bit more powerful but the A4 will be a major improvement over what you have. The seller laptopaid, is one of the best on eBay for this kind of thing. I can't count how much stuff I have purchased from them.  Post back if you need any more help. The Manual shows just how to replace the motherboard. Port your fan, memory, wireless card over. You will have to reinstall original Windows but the motherboard has a Key Code embedded in the BIOS and will just activate. If your hard drive still has the original HP install it should activate itself when first connected to the internet but be prepared if necessary to do a system restore. If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

If the motherboard is the same, then it shouldn't require a reinstall, or re-activation, although a change in MAC address can trigger the latter anyhow

This is very basic question, but I am not too knowledgable about motherboards.

Can I just use any AT Socket 7 board? Of course, I would also make sure that it takes the memory that I already have, plus has the correct slots for all of my cards.

Thanks!

A:Motherboard Replacement

It's a trap. You can probably use almost any Am2 motherboard but if you don't buy it from HP where it will be at least 4 times what it is worth, then you will wind up buying a new copy of Windows because your restore disks will only work with an HP supplied motherboard. So you can see what they have but most likely you will be better off using the components, buying a new case, motherboard and copy of Windows.

You will have to do a lot of research on that current motherboard in order to make sure you get one that is compatible.

I would call back DELL and ask them if the one they are offerening you is a refurb or is it brand new? Dell has a habit of selling refurb parts.

Also ask them for the make/model number of the motherboard and I can help you do some research if you like?

Hello. I have a custom-built computer with a Gigabyte GA-KN8SC-939 motherboard with a Athlon64 3500+ processor. The motherboard had been having problems starting about a few years ago with random crashes occurring whenever devices were plugged in to now crashing and freezing up on a regular basis. I suspected it was the motherboard (no other devices were having problems, and the memory wasn't faulty), so I believe I need to replace the motherboard. However, knowing the age of this computer, I don't know if it's possible. Do you guys know of a motherboard that would have performance similar to this one and also work with a Socket 939 Athlon64 3500+ processor?
 

A:Need help a replacement motherboard

About the only place you will find a 939 board these days is ebay or at a computer shop that deals in used hardware. For less than $150 you can get an AM3 board Athlon II X2 and 4GB DDR3 If you want to go that route.
CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz
Motherboard: ASRock M3A770DE AM3
RAM:Crucial 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

A setup such as this while not exceptionally powerful by todays standards, would run circles around that old socket 930 Athlon64 3500+ processor.

My friend has a Compaq SR1000 that uses a 939 socket motherboard. The motherboard stopped working a while ago. My question is, can I pick out any 939 socket motherboard that I can find on Ebay to replace the non working motherboard?
 

A:Motherboard replacement?

Most likely no. Big box systems like dell, hp, etc use proprietary parts. That is they are made to the system builders specs NOT standard atx type specs.

While a standard atx type board might "work" it may also have problems lining up with the existing case.

FWIW socket 939 is pretty old technology and IMO NOT worth putting any money into. In addition ebay is about the last place to buy parts.

My question is; do they make replacements for the original manufactored part? that would be cheaper. Or maybe used, refurbished parts? Does anyone know where I can find such parts?

A:Motherboard Replacement

You need to look at the motherboard you have and find out the manufacturer and model number. It should be silk screened on the motherboard. It is very possibly an ECS or PcChips motherboard, as Gateway and Emachines (same company) are famous for using. And see if you can find one new at New Egg or some place like that.

Taking a computer to the Geek Squad is not a recommended thing. Often they do inferior work and frequently talk people into letting them make repairs that are not necessary and sometimes do not work.

Unfortunately you will probably need to. If you replace your motherboard XP will reconize this as a new piece of hardware and you may even be required to purchase a new license. Microsoft may see this as a new computer. You will probably not even be able to boot with the current o.s. installed on the drive.

Basically any socket 775 micro Atx board will fit but will it boot? You have to see if the front jumpers (power, reset, hard drive led etc are one plug or a series of loose wires to attach because if it is one plug, you will never get it to start. The other issue is change the board and you have to buy Windows as you cannot use the HP restore disks on a new motherboard which won't contain the bios switch to allow that and is illegal anyway.

Yes HP will do paid out of warranty service but it is very expensive. Your best bet is to procure the motherboard and either do it yourself, which I understand most people do not want to do or take it to a local independent service shop. Expect the whole thing to cost perhaps $200-300. HP would charge at the top end if that range or perhaps slightly more. I do not speck for them however so you should call. They will quote you a price for motherboard replacement. If you want to try self-help post back and we can locate you a motherboard but we will also need to know the country you live in,

Visually it is the same motherboard but I am not sure whether there is a difference because it is not the same FRU. Any help is welcome. Sorry for my bad English.My E420 is: Machine type model114179GMachine infoi3-2310M(2.1GHz), 4GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HD, 14in 1366x768 LCD, Intel HD Graphics,  Ty

My 1200 Athelon PC bit the dust on the hottest day this summer.
I assumed a heat problem and replaced the heat-sink and fan on the motherboard-didn't help.
I replaced the power supply a 350) with new one (a 450) didn't help.
PC is now at the repair shop-I am assuming the worst and expect a choice of a new PC with my old hard drives moved over or a new motherboard and chipsets.
What cost range should replacing the motherboard and chips be?

The existing PC has 3 1/2 and 5 1/4 (yea no comments) and a 20 gig HD plus a 120 gig added, a scanner and 2 printers.
I am hoping to salvage the info from both the hard drives. Maybe ghost the 20 and move the 120 to whatever system I end up with.
Any opinions would be appreciated.

Hello everyone,
I have a query regarding win 7 laptop which is bitlocker encrypted using TPM+PIN authentication and both TPM owner hash and Recovery password are backed up to AD.
if i replace a new motherboard on the laptop it will pop up the recovery password screen and then i can login and boot up to desktop.
for the new motherboard my TPM is off and so to avoid the recovery screen coming up every time, I will have to turn on TPM and take the ownership.The GPO's to backup TPM are already applied on the machine(turn on tpm backup to AD is enabled)
Can some one helpw me understand what will happen when i turn on TPM for new motherboard(will it overwrite the older TPM owner password hash already present in AD?).also are any additional steps required when i replace the motherboard?
Dear All - Please help me- Thanks in advance!!
 

A:BitLocker - New motherboard replacement

After you replaced the motherboard, you need to repopulate the TPM with new information regarding the encryption of the hard disk.
I use these commands to repopulate the information in the TPM (without PIN):
manage-bde –delete -protectors C: -type TPM
manage-bde –protectors –add C: -tpmRay - Author of Windows 7 for XP Professionals

Recently, I have built a new system and installed vista home premium 64 bit OEM (genuine copy). The machine worked perfectly for a week. Then my motherboard and CPU died. I have already sent the Motherboard for RMA and I am getting a new one (same make and model) and a new cpu is on the way(slightly faster cpu).

Knowing that OEM versions of windows vista are tied to the motherboard, I do have one question: Am I going to have any problems with windows activation when I boot up with the new motherboard? Or is everything going to be ok since its going to be exactly the same motherboard (only working)?

I did talk to a MS representitive on the phone. She has not heard of anyone in my situation but said, "If the motherboard dies, The license dies. Buy a new retail copy" I honestly don't fully believe her.

A:Replacement motherboard issue?

That is so not true!!!!

If motherboard dies, you change motherboard infinite times, and activation works perfectly...

The most probable that could happen is that windows will ask you to activate again, after installing the new motherboard.However, you might be even lucky and skip this part if the mobo is same brand/model. Anyway, iIf it doesn't accept the online activation, you will have to follow the phone activation method, which will guide you through some questions and answers, and then will give you the new activation key or string. You just have to answer that your copy of windows came with your PC, not that you bought it retail.

I just got a replacement Foxconn motherboard since my other one fried. I went to reinstall it, made all the connections, and turned it on. Everything powers up but I can't get anything to display. The fan on my graphics card spins at 100% and doesn't die down, so that's a sign that it isn't getting past the bios. Is there something I need to do that I'm missing? I upgraded to this mobo before without any problems...

I've cleared cmos, ran the board out of the case to see if it was grounding out, ran with the bare essentials, and have checked all connections. The led debug indicators on the motherboard usually say FF, meaning it boots successfully. Now they don't say anything, just - -. Any help is appreciated...thanks!

Hi,
Recently my pc has more trouble booting each day. When i press the power button, it gets turned on but stops booting while reading the drives (the screen is still black by then). When i keep resetting it gets further sometimes, but it can take up to 30 tries to get into windows.

So i figured i'll replace my motherboard (Asrock K7VT4A Pro (Socket A)).
I heard that if i get another Socket-A type motherboard, i won't have to reinstall windows (reinstalling windows would be a real prob).
But i'm still wondering if this counts for only Asrock motherboards, or if i can also replace it with an AMD for instance.

Any advice or comment is welcome, as i realy dont even know if replacing the motherboard is the right thing to do..
 

A:Motherboard replacement concerns

installing windows is always a pain in the ***- no matter what system you put it on. You can reuse your old windows copy but you'll need to get a new key from M$. It will prompt you to call a 1-800 #. XP is only licensed for one machine at a time.

personally, I would take this time for an upgrade. You can salvage most of the parts, cdrom, memory (if it is DDR400), floppy drive, zip drive, etc....

sell the XP CPU- there's a high demand on ebay for it.

sell the video card

get yourself a nice AMD 64 system with a nice video card.

In a PC? Yes. In a Laptop? No, unless you have experience. Most times you would be stuck replacing it with an exact duplicate of what you have now. Cases may look the same but on closer look there are differences in the cases according to model, and the cases are pretty much designed to have a particular motherboard installed.

You may be able to fit a standard micro ATX motherboard in the case, but odds are that front panel connections like power switch, power LED, hard drive LED and USB ports are not going to just fit with out some re-wiring. You could buy any socket 478 motherboard and a new case then reuse the old CPU, drives and other parts. But then you may as well upgrade from the Celeron too.

A:Emachine motherboard replacement

Remember that the board you use must accept the CPU of the one in your failed eMachine board.
The hard drive is likely good, but the Windows on it will detect that the motherboard has changed, and then it will shut down. Sometimes the eMachines recovery disk will work if you run it in repair mode, or if you run a full new install, but usually not on that T2245 model. It is designed to seek out the code on the eeprom on the motherboard to verify that it is allowed to run a repair or install on the new equipment. So you may have to buy a new copy of Windows XP. Your memory will be good, but the power supply will not be good, or in the rare case when it is good, it may not have enough power for the new motherboard.
So expect to buy a new motherboard, a new CPU heatsink and fan, thermal paste, and a windows disk.
Or just buy a decent rebuilt Dell or HP or Gateway, and an external USB enclosure so you can rescue the data on the old eMachines drive and move it to the new or used drive. It will cost you less than the replacement board, power supply, and Windows.

Hi there,

I'm new the forum and could use some advice. I have experience with removing and replacing all parts of the computer except motherboards.

Cutting the long story short, I tried updating my BIOS last night and I have now ended up with a corrupt BIOS and everytime I try to boot from my Windows 7 CD it blue screens.

I think its time for an upgrade and therefore I would like some suggestions on a new motherboard. I have already bought a 1TB SATAII HDD which is on its way. I would like to replace the motherboard.

I currently have a ASUS P5N73-AM

My computer has a Quad-Core processor, I don't need the built-in Graphics card as I have a stand-alone ATI card. I have 4GB of RAM, but if possible would like to upgrade to 6 or 8.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for you help in advance,

A:Replacement motherboard - some advice?

We need to know the exact model of CPU, but from what you've said, you have a LGA775 motherboard, and DDR2 RAM. Your CPU is likely a Core2Quad, but it doesn't hurt to confirm exactly what CPU you have.

You will be limited by the fact your current motherboard is also mATX, and because most DDR2 motherboards in that format for your CPU have only two slots available, and a max RAM of 4GB - it looks like your at your maximum already.

That said, here are some I would consider (I prefer Gigabyte over everything else but its personal preference):

1. Asus P5KPL-AM EPU iG31 Socket 775 onboard VGA 6 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard £32.94 from eBuyer
2. Asrock G31M-S R2.0 G31 Socket 775 VGA Out 6 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard This supports 8GB RAM £32.99 from eBuyer
3. Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L iG31 Socket 775 onboard VGA 7.1 channel audio mATX Motherboard £33.00 from eBuyer
4. Asus P5QPL-AM iG41 Socket 775 onboard VGA 6 Channel Audio mATX Motherboard this supports 8GB RAM £34.90 from eBuyer

You will need to ensure you check your CPU is supported by the motherboards above if you wish to purchase them - or let us know and we can confirm for your peace of mind.

I RMA'd the motherboard of a new system I am building because one of its' two banks of DIMM slots was defective.

Is it necessary for me to re-install of the OS once I have the same replacement motherboard installed? If it is necessary for me to re-install, am I going to have issues with my licensed copy of Windows 7, since in theory it is being installed on another system?

BTW, the OS installed fine and the system appears to be stable running off 16GB of memory. Nevertheless, I returned the mobo because I couldn't get my system to recognize the other 16GB of memory installed. I am a PC convert after having spent the last 15 years working with Macs so my knowledge of PC OSs is not terribly sophisticated. This is my second PC build (the first being a hybrid with a mac OS).

A:Replacement Motherboard--Do I need to reinstall OS?

Hi dMathers, Welcome to the forums, If you are replacing "like for like" then there should be no problem as long as you are using a retail copy of win7, if by chance you are using an OEM version then you may have issues where the mobo is tied to the OEM version these are not unsurmountable but may require a phone call to Microsoft to activate the OS

Experience with this? Lots of it.

Chances the installed OS will boot off another board are very, very, very unlikely. And even if it does, you'll have sporadic run problems until you do a clean install of the OS on the new board.

Exceptions to this rule: Exact replacement board.

I recently sleeved all the cables in my computer case and in the process, I ended up breaking the plastic USB connector (pictured below) for my computers front panel. I figured I could just order an extra connector but after searching for quite sometime, I cannot find anything.

Would anyone happen to know if these little plastic connectors can actually be purchased or what they are even called? I get a feeling that they have a specific name which is why my search is revealing nothing. Any help would be much appreciated. Feel free to let me know if you need anymore details or have any questions.

Thanks in advance,

After I replaced the battery in the motherboard (an old machine; 300MHZ) I no longer have any signal to the monitor. It worked perfectly well before the replacemant. The monitor works OK with another machine that I have so that is not the problem. I removed the video card and replaced it to no avail. Any suggestions as to what I should try to re-establish a signal?
