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.)

ok bought a barebones pc of ebay Came with a pc chips board wouldnt post reset jumpers and after a week of trying to get it to work finally said it was ead and went and bought a MSI KT board thinking this will fix problem installed cpu and heat sink installed board into case and installed stick of pc turned it on but same thing happened as before board to msi board..same chips from problem pc with pc chips board fans on cpu and vga card from pc chips board to msi board..same problem spin but just a black screen rset jumpers to clear and reset back tried again still wouldnt boot checked to make sure it board wasnt touching case and shorting from pc chips board to msi board..same problem out but everything seems to be good there theres no beep codes same as with pc chips board KT board comes with a pci slot attachment with usb and led error light when i start pc the light stay on red In manual it says that means cpu is not installed correctly from pc chips board to msi board..same problem or either it is damages reseated cpu and used some artic silver but still same thing and led light stay red im thinking there was nothing wrong with pc chips board just like theres nothing wrong with msi board Could it be the power supply It has a cheap power supply HERCULES is the name on it it weighs almost nothing Ive tried different stick of memory and vga card only things that are comman with problem cpu a AMD Athlon XP mhz and this cheap power supply The problem has to be with either the cpu or power supply thats what im thinking nbsp

A:from pc chips board to msi board..same problem

If ur not posting and considering what u've done coupled with the MSI diagnostics it is very likely there is a problem with this cpu.
You need to get a hold of another compatible AMD cpu just to see if u can post, from there u can confront the ebay seller for any restitution ovr the cpu if there was any kind of guarantee offered at all with the purchased items.

Suddenly, the top row on my keyboard [numerals, etc] are not working.

My question now there any other possible cause for this, other than my clumsiness?

Have just reformatted my Compaq laptop set all language settings to English UK.Now when I want to use @ by using the shift and 2key I get " instead of @.Thats normal for an English keyboard which you've set it to.

Ive been having sluggish performance from a HP media center with an xp o/s installed; at first it wouldnt boot for ages and the hard drive was making a ticking noise so i changed the hard drive and did a fresh install. The HP booted ok but was still very sluggish so i swapped the PSU, RAM, and i reseated everything including the cpu but its still sluggish so that only leaves the motherboard or cpu.

I know that its unlikely to be the cpu so i was wondering if the m/board could cause this problem ?
I did a few tests on the m/board and cpu but they all passed so i am baffled.

Any ideas ?

Hi All,

A mate of mine has got a Dual Core P4 that runs (used to run) on a gigabyte mbo but now it does not work.

All the fans including CPU and case fans work. All the LED's (power etc) all turn on. However, i do not a get a POST beep to say that all is OK. I've had all hardware taken off the mbo and i do not get any success. I've had RAM removed and i do not get any beeping however i've known some mbo not to beep.

However, in my experiences repairing PC's, CPU rarely fail under normal/manufacturer use. Is there anyway for me to identify this problem as a dead cpu or mbo if i do not have other hardware to swap?

any help would be great. ta.

A:Problem with on-board LAN


Welcome To TSF.

Is the Driver installed for the LAN?
If you right click on "My Computer" and select "Properties" and then when a new window opens click on the "Hardware Tab" then click on the first option "Device Manager" when that opens click on "Veiw" and then click on "Show Hidden Devices". that should show up you LAN under the "Other Devices" or "Network Adaptors". If you see it can you reply on this Thread please.

I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on a problem I have at work in my IT Technician role...
I have a PC running XP SP3 and I can't get the on board LAN to work.
The lights are not on however they are showing activity (They're on) at the patch panel end in the comms cabinet.
I have swapped the cable for 2 others but still the same.
I have checked the BIOS and the Lan is enabled - I can't find any further options regarding the LAN in the BIOS.

There is nothing in the window when I open 'network connections' either and Device manager doesn't show any 'Network adaptors' at all. the Network adaptors heading isn't even shown.

I have just joined this forum and I would greatly appreciate any help in this matter. Thank you in advance for any help given.

Kind Regards

Early this year I reported a distorted sound coming from my speakers occasionally when swithching on my Pc.At the same time I was having problems with Vista when connecting to the net,I'm still not sure if they were connected but on switching on the computer last friday nothing except a flicker from one of the Antec blue fans and a slight movement from the antec psu fan and nothing else.I have tried the psu in another a pc and its ok so it looks like my Asus P5B mother board as blown.Can anyone shed any light on what may have happened,I cant see any black on the mb or smell any thing like its blown.Ive took the oppertunity to order a newer mb now still going for another Asus even though my P5B was less than 12 months old,must admit it was a budgit model not overclocked or anything though.

A:Msi board gd41 + 8 gbs ram = Problem

I checked the MSI site but I didn't see a list of memory that is certified for the motherboard. Many motherboard vendors post lists (I know Gigabyte and ASRock do).

Here is the listed memory specs for your motherboard. Make sure the memory you have meets these specs
Supports four unbuffered DIMM of 1.5 Volt DDR3 1066/1333/1600*/2000*/2133* (OC) DRAM, 16GB Max
- Supports 1Gb/ 2Gb/ 4Gb DRAM size
- Supports Dual channel mode

Are you using Kingston or Kingston Value RAM? I used to do a lot of support on the Dell forums and Kingston Value RAM generally would not work or work correctly.

When I'm adjusting my many icons and shortcuts on my desktop, often, particularly when I change resolutions, all of the icons will bunch together in the upper left corner of my screen, requiring me to rearrange them again. As I'm dragging them to the right locations, often the mouse travels across the screen, but the image of the icon has frozen part of the way across. It has transparency. I hold my mouse in place waiting, then after some 20 to 30 seconds, the icon snaps into the new spot where my mouse cursor is positioned. Is this a video card "overload" problem? My video is on-board, as delivered in the machine.

Should I consider replacing this on-board video or do I have another problem? It's been this way since new.

Hi. I just cleared the CMOS on a Abit IS7-V2 motherboard. And when i restarted my system there was no display on my monitor. I checked my graphic card and also tested the board with another card but in vain. Also after the POST didnt heard any beep. Any help will be vert welcome.

A:Problem with IS7-V2 board(Abit)

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

What made you clear the cmos in the first place? Did you make sure you were properly grounded?

Check that everything is connected and seated correctly. You may have disturbed something when you cleared the cmos.

If that doesn`t help. Disconnect anything not required to boot your computer. Just leave the psu/mobo/cpu/1 stick of ram/video card. Try and start your computer.

im trying to install the drivers for my on board sound
my mobo is a ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 and it came with a driver cd
that has a driver wizard, when i run it the sound driver seems to install and the pc reboots after reboot it says finishing installation then it says not installed.
ive tried installing the sound driver manually but it says
the audio driver files do not support your computer hardware

is this because i already have Xfi drivers installed and need to install the onboard drivers first or is there a problem?

A:on board sound problem

You've got to have one or the other. On Board Sound or Sound Card.
I've been down this road before. When you decide which one, you will have to flush out all the drivers for the one you don't want and do a "fresh" install of sound drivers for the one you want.
In other words: Been there done that

Besides the obvious, of course.

My computer's been acting a bit odd lately, and when I tried to get online today, it went a little crazy and deleted the username on my connection dialogue box.

Now, whenever I try to log on, it says that 'the username or password isn't valid on this domain'. I know that neither username or password is wrong, and have tried to correct them several times to no avail, even though I'm quite sure the problem is deeper than that.

I've been having problems with spy and adware lately, but I've downloaded a few sweepers, and after scanning with Adaware SE, I was convinced I'd gotten rid of them. Any idea what the problem is?

Also, on a separate note, sometimes when I restart my computer, it will reload with a messed up screen. Any idea what could be causing this?

I need a litte bit of info here. I had a problem where I was getting horizontal red and green lines on my screen at times. I changed monitors and got the same problem. I sent my system in for repair. I was told that if a mother board had on video card that the motherboard its self would need to be replaced. The repair tech did a ReImage does that fix the issue? I am very concerned here. It has been a month messing with people to get it fixed. Was sent to Best Buy and they did nothing even though it was under warranty. Finally sent it directly to Gateway, and they ReImaged it. Just wondering if someone knows if this possible or did they just say they did something? Please respond. Thank you.

A:on board sound problem/ new mobo

Off the top of my head, the only suggestion I can make to try to narrow this down a little further is to run the DirectX diagnostic tests (DXDIAG) to see what else you can determine about this problem. Make SURE that you save a full report, so you'll have it as a baseline diagnostics record. That way, you can compare the results of any changes you make with follow-up tests after you make changes to your settings.

Glad to know I'm not the only one who hates WMP; I still use Winamp 2.81 on most of my Windows rigs, though I did install Winamp 5.07 on one system recently, just to see the difference from the older version.

Also, open the Control Panel, and check the Sounds and Multimedia Properties for your hardware. Check ALL the Audio tab settings, including the Volume and Advanced option buttons (start with the Sound Playback settings). Check the balance sliders under the Volume options. Check the "Use only preferred devices" box, then check the Hardware tab. Examine the properties of your devices, especially the properties for your Yamaha CD/RW; put a check-mark in the "Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device" box (if it isn't checked already), then run DXDIAG a second time, and compare the effects your changes have made.

Good luck; as a dedicated headphone user, this is one area I have little experience with, though I'm sure others will be able to provide more specific advice.

Hi Troops,

I'm getting a message that 'no drives intstalled' on an
ASUS AV7-133, yet two hard-drives are installed, as well
as two CD-ROMS.

The exact message:

ULTRA100 Bios is not installed because there are no drives attached

There are IDE controllers for ide drives, in fact a total of four. (and floppy)

Each set of two has a blue base and a black base for the IDE cables. I've
found that it relates to a RAID 0 array, but I only want a regular Master-
Slave hard drive setup.

I can't find how to change it in the BIOS, and I've tried pluging the HDDs
in in various configurations and it still either recognizes the two CD-ROMS,
or the two HDDs - but still doesn't get all four, like it's supposed to be.

Haaaaalllllllp TIA

I'm trying to troubleshoot the issue I'm having and am hoping to leverage the expertise on this website. I recently bought a GA965P-DS3 board and am using it with a Conroe 6700 processor with 2G of Corsair 6400C4 800 RAM. I set stuff up with a PCI-Express video card and I just cant get it to display anything. The board and card are getting power (fans work) but cant get the BIOS setup to show up. I'm wondering if there is a board setting I'm missing (searched the manual, this forum and google w/o luck) or that the board is simply bad. video card works in another system...

It is helpful. There is every chance it is Zone alarm.
I would download this.
Microsoft Security Essentials.
On that site ONLY disable your Zone alarm anti-virus and firewall.
Then keeping them disabled install MS Essentials..
SEE HOW IT IS NOW, CHECKING that you have Windows Firewall enabled.

If the issue is solved you must then decide if you wish to uninstall Zone alarm or proceed with the possibility of changing the Zone alarm settings to solve the problem that way.
You would then need to go here

I just purchased a new biostar P4m80-m4 motherboard and an intel celeron D325 2.53g socket478 256k processor. Biostars's manual and website indicate that this board supports this processor. However when I booted up the machine I got an error message to this effect: warning cpu has been changed or cpu ratio failed. I shut down the machine and when I tried to reboot I got nothing. The power supply does not even start. I have verified that the power supply has not failed. Anyone have any ideas what is going on?

I am in the process of trying to get the onboard video to work on a FIC FR33 running a 430 processor (CPU Socket 370) . I have been able to locate the video drivers online at their web site, but when I try to install, I get a message saying it cannot complete the task due to not being able to find the "setup.dll" file.

I'm trying to get the correct driver installed as the current setup only has 16 bit color at 640 x 480 resolution.(no other options) are very grainy.

We just want to use this system for online mail/ internet/MSN Messenger.

Can anyne give me some assistance in getting this driver installed? It looks like right now the system is using the standard VGA driver from Windows 98 which is not working correctly.

On board means on your motherboard so you have to use the motherboard driver disc for the video drivers or identify the motherboard model and manufacturer and look that up online and download the proper drivers, most likely from the manufacturer's support website.

A:Lenovo Z51 - I/O Board connection problem

Hi AuraFelicia , 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
The location affecting only the right side with Audio port, USB port and media card reader all affected at the same time would indicate probable failure on the IO board (page 52) specially if the ports on the other side are ok.
Reseating the cable and the IO board may help but try to reload the defaults of the BIOS first. 
Turn off the laptop and use the novo button (item 2 page 82) to power on , Choose BIOS setup from the Novo Menu and go to the exit tab and load the defaults , save and exit. 
Herewith is the service training for reseating (remove and re plug in to ensure no cables loose and connections are good) IO removal if you have the tools and skills . Otherwise try to call in technical support or your local service center for assistance. 
Hope this help answer your query.

Hey guys...

Managed to get my computer up and running perfectly, and using the old components and whatnot I started to throw a computer together for my dad, including:

- M2N32 SLI Asus (AM2)
- Nvidia GTS 250
- Seagate Barraccuda 7200 RPM (blank)
- AMD AM3 950 X2 BE (dual core, 3.1 Ghz)
- A fairly naff 550 Watt PSU

Anyway, I turn it on and it beeps (as in beeps like it always does when a PC turns on) and then all the fans and hard disk start spinning; then it just dies about 3 seconds later, no beeps, the mobo has power all this time so no idea what's happening! I've disconnected the GPU and it still dies... I'm wondering if it has something to do with a bios update I heard for a AM3 chip to work on a AM2 board?

Cheers for any help!

There are 3 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.

You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.


You will likely see a message from this rogue telling you the file is infected. Ignore the message. Leave the message OPEN, do not close the message. Run rkill repeatedly until it's able to do it's job. This may take a few tries. You'll be able to tell rkill has done it's job when your desktop (explorer.exe) cycles off and then on again.

Once the tool has run, do NOT reboot the machine, and then try to run DDS and GMER.

Asus has nothing to do with the drivers they all come from Nvidia, about all Asus might do with them is change the installer slightly so that it includes their name. Also Nvidia declared the NF4 legacy status quite a while ago (shortly after Vista came out), and there will be no more NF4 drivers.

You have a couple of options with that NF4,

1. Use it with the drivers that Windows installed (which come from Nvidia), which are sufficient for everything to work as it should.

2. If you really want something newer than what Windows installs have a look here,

View forum - nForce Drivers &bull;

Personally I would just go with option #1, and did with almost the same board as yours (A8N-SLI SE) and it works as well in 7 as it did in Vista.

Any ideas as to what I can do? I am running Windows XP.



A:Hoyle Board Game installation problem

Nothing at all happens? There's nothing in Task Manager? You don't see any error message?

If so, what game is this, and what information is on the CD or CD case? Some versions of games absolutely will not even install on Windows XP. Newer versions will. What game are you trying to install, and does it say Windows 2000 or Windows XP on the disk or case? If it only says 95/98/ME, it may not install on XP.

I am assuming your new hard drive is a SATA drive. what Asus is referring to is the sata drivers which shoud have come with your motherboard. usually they are on a floppy disk. if you dont have them you should be able to download them from Asus.

Just for info, my wife has had trouble with several of the Hoyle games over the years.

I have a Gigabyte Gamer 3 motherboard with an I7 processor, with on board Intel graphics processor.
I have this installed via Windows 10 along with an NVDIA GTX650 graphics card. Recently if I do a full "reboot" after the windows logo comes up all the monitors go into sleep mode and the system does not boot,.
To get the system to boot up with both graphics drivers installed, I have to either power off the PSU or go into the BIOS and then exit without saving changes. The system then boots fine until another "restart".
Fast boot works fine also, it's just when Windows does a "restart".
Any ideas anyone?
I have disabled the onboard graphics temporarily and the system works fine every time, but before both used to work without any problems.

Hi everyone.
Yesterday I bought a new monitor (Packard Bell viseo 190W), I've plugged it to my computer, but something is not working: while windows (I've XP pro) is loading the logo appears and everything seems to be ok, but just before the "user-interface" loads, the monitor goes black showing a "NO SIGNAL" message. I tried to uninstall ati-drivers (my graphic card is ati radeon 9250, 256MB ram), it works but obviously is in low mode graphic. If i try to reinstall catalyst + drivers the problem comes back. I tried Omega drivers too, same problem :\

What should I do? Any suggestions?

Thanks for help

I've an ASRock K8Upgrade-1689 board with on-board SATA controller which works fine with my SATA hard drive until I disable either the on-board LAN or Audio in the BIOS. The hard drive then mysteriously becomes invisible to the board. Bit scared of flashing the BIOS but will be brave if it's a good idea!

I am not sure I am even on the right place for this, however, here goes. My Grandson gave me a Hoyle Puzzle & Board games 2009 CD and installed it for me. I am having problems with it. I cannot access Panic at all. (I get an error message.) On the Crossword game I cannot use the tab key or arrows to move from word to word. I must use the mouse. On Bump'um, when the 8 card for a car controlled by the computer comes up (this is a choice card) it will sit there for a few seconds (as if thinking!) before the car makes its move. I have not explored all the games, but these I have found. Is it the CD or my computer that is causing these problems?

Hi, and thanks for looking at this problem. Hopefully you can help.
I was awake untill 4 this morning trying to figure out what the problem is with the motherboard i have just installed.
The problem is, i have installed the motherboard inside the case securly, connected the IDE cables, Floppy and Power Connector cables to the motherboard and the part i am confused on is, the front panel connecters. I cannot figure out which LED goes where, however i had guessed which is the power connector as i can power it on, but get no LED display on the front of my case, and no display on my monitor. I looked over the motherboard manual on the Intel website, and followed their instructions and still no luck.
Anyone who can help me, i would greatly appreciate it.
Many Thanks, Ant.

Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and I have a question .

My Grandma has a windows xp computer. In the past I have replaced the hard drive as well as the power supply. The computer now has a new issue which started this week. I suspect it is the motherboard but would rather be 100% sure of it before I advise my granma just get a new machine.

When you boot the computer the / sign appears and takes twenty minutes to boot. Also , one of the DVD drives have completely dissapeared from recognition and the one it does ackowledge it shpws to be occupied when it is not. Any input would be appreciated. I am Going to go to her house and troubleshoot the computer when I get a chance and was just wonderin what you takes would be on the situation. Thanks , Rob

A:POSSIBLE MOTHER BOARD PROBLEM! 20 minute boot and issapearing drives

It could be that the drive (or drives) are failing and the BIOS can't recognize them. That would cause a long POST (Power On Self-Test). Do you get the Windows XP splash screen or just a black screen?

You could try disabling the drives on the secondary IDE controller of the BIOS and reboot. If it boots up normally, then most likely the drive is beginning to fail. Check the BIOS to see if it recognizes the drives, as well. They "should" be on the secondary IDE controller.

Hit me up if any of this helps.

The on-board surround sound on my XPS 8700 will not work properly.
When the configuration sound test is run the front speakers both give the little melody correctly, but all of the other speakers give a little dink sound like a cracked bell.  The surround sound in the game I play the most only seems to work with the front speakers.
My Creative Inspire T7700 is admittedly quite old (12 yrs) but I don't think that is the problem.
Any suggestions?

Hi Mick,

Have you tried any other speaker set to rule out the speakers? 
How about the sound from earphones?
Do update the audio drivers and BIOS if not yet and observe for any changes.

A:Can I replace a Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series power board with a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 Series power board?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.
I don't think Apple has produced a Macbook with a power indicator -- the PC vendors are playing follow Apple.

what ram would be best for the dfi nf4 sli board?

ocz has ram made just for dfi but i dont know

or should i go with something like this

A:ram for dfi nf4 board

nice to see that a mobo manufacturer besides ABIT is putting out the extra money to put the good japanese caps on their boards. The specs for the board says it only supports DDR 400. So does that mean it won't support a Clawhammer with 1GHz FSB? weird. Anyway if you have a 1GHz FSB you would need the PC5000. i still don't get it. Sorry I'm an Intel guy so I'm not really into AMD, but no one was answering your post so.......... I thought all the 939 socket AMD's were 1GHz FSB? Someone correct me if I am wrong.

A:new board

how much ram have you - I have seen it run on 128Mb - certainly a lot of machines with 256Mb where sold

have you made sure the cooling is correct and put any heatsink compound between the fan & CPU - could it be over temperature and shutting down ?

did you put the FAN on the correct way round - some CPUs had a small slot/ridge along oneside and you had to get the CPU Fan assembly the correct way around to nake good contact

This may not be the right place to post this but its close enough.

I need microphone help.

For the past few months my microphone just hasn't been working online! I have no clue why and nobody seems to be able to help me.

Its not because its muted or anything like that. We had a mic and it used to work but one day it just didn't work anymore so I bought a new one and that doesn't work online either.

It works fine with sound recorder, and with any voice test things for any applications, but whenever I enter an online game to use it, it seems to just shut off and disappear completely. It works while msn is running but whenever I click "start an audio conversation" it shuts off.

I am starting to get very agrivated so if you could help me out I'd appreciate it.
