Q: Hardware or Software fault? re Nvidia Geforce Go 7600

Hi there I've installed Windows Ultimate bit on a HP Pavilion Laptop model dv eu by backing up my work and formatting the HDD The issue I am having is that I cannot seem to get the Nvidia Graphics driver to work I downloaded the most recent driver for the Nvidia Geforce Go from Nvidia site and I get the blue screen so I have now uninstalled the driver and gone back to standard VGA I have also searched this forum and I came across the following thread which assisted Geforce fault? Hardware 7600 re Software Go or Nvidia me in the past with a Sony Vaio laptop NVIDIA Driver - Convert from Desktop to Mobile Laptop I followed the instructions outlined but I still get a blue screen on this HP laptop I also get red green vertical lines on the boot Hardware or Software fault? re Nvidia Geforce Go 7600 screen but it goes away when the quot Starting quot graphic appears with the windows logo I can still log into windows using the Standard VGA driver which windows installs but I would like to get the Nvidia driver to work I think there is a physical problem with the Graphics card but then why am I able to login to Windows Can anyone advise please Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Hardware or Software fault? re Nvidia Geforce Go 7600

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.)

So i was playing world of warcraft for a while this morning.. about an hour and the game freezes and soon u have a BSOD. (0x116) (nvlddmkm.sys)

I looked it up online and its caused by the graphics card driver.

I restored my comp but that did no good. BSOD came soon after the "starting windows" screen

So i reinstalled Windows 7 and tried installing nVidia drivers from windows update (i know i shouldnt do this), manufacturer website (but they only had for windows vista) and finally from the nvidia site (there was only a 179.48 beta driver available)

after installing that beta driver i have the same problem at the boot screen. and i cant find a previous stable version.

I use a hp dv9267ea laptop with an nvidia geforce go 7600 and its been running fine for the last 3 years playing WOW occasionally for a month or 2 every 6 months.

Any help?

Hello there mate.

Some people havused the old volt mod on these cards, and have had amazing results.

Here is a link to one forum where people have done it and had great results.

However be warned that you could crap out your card, so be careful.

Hi. I built a new computer and the Sims 2 keeps crashes and restarts. Can some one help me. I have:

ASUS p5n32-e sli plus
Intel core 2 6300
1022mb ram
2 Nvidia GeForce 7600gt sli 256mb (pci-e)
SoundMAX hd audio card
DirectX 9.0c

I can play Doom 3, Call of Duty 2, Quake 4 all on high. I just can't play Sims 2. I have the lastest drivers.

Do I need a better card.

A:can't play sims 2 on a Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT

If you can play those other games without crashes or problems, it's quite possible you have another problem... likely northbridge or cpu temp/voltage issue. Sims 2 is more cpu & memory intensive than most games.

I'd start by downloading and running Asus's Probe II software and let this run on the desktop while trying Sims 2. This will allow you to monitor your CPU temp, voltages and system ambient temps. With good cooling, neither temp should ever go over 50C.. with ambient temps >50C may be a sign of an overheating Northbridge (occasional problem on that series motherboard, but easy to fix).

Lastly, does this problem occur when you run single-card vs. SLI? This would be the next test to see if it's a profile/NVIDIA driver problem with SLI + Sims 2. If it works fine in single-card mode, you should report this issue on the NV forums in hopes of a fix in drivers.

NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS

I must tell everyone that I successfully installed an “optional” Windows Update on 08/14/07 entitled “NVIDIA Driver Update for NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS” and it made quite a difference to my Television viewing through the Windows Media Center. The colors are much more alive and I’m very pleased. I’m sure it improved the overall performance of my graphics, monitor etc.

Anyone using this particular graphics card SHOULD consider this update.

Hello everyone,

I am upgraded my Hp Pavilion dv9235nr notebook pc from vista to windows 7. I have a legit copy of windows 7 32 bit version. I noticed my laptop is using a generic windows graphic driver, so I attempted to update the driver to the official nvidia driver for Geforce Go 7600. After i install it and restart the laptop, it bsod right after the windows 7 logo appears. Then I have to repair windows to get it booting up again.
Attached is the BSOD dump file and required info. I hope you all can help me out.

Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays,

First, you may want to update your BIOS: WinFlash for HP Notebook System BIOS (for Notebooks with Intel Processors) - Microsoft Windows Based HP Pavilion dv9235nr Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English)

Also, it is recommended to download and install the display card driver from your vendor rather than from the graphics card manufacturer with notebook PCs. You can download NVIDIA GeForce Series Video Driver HP Pavilion dv9235nr Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) and install using the steps in Drivers - Install Vista Drivers on Windows 7.

A:Serious problem - is it a hardware fault or software ?

Sounds like the computer is not booting of the CD. You need to go into the BIOS setup when the computer first turns on, usually press F2 or DEL, and find the Boot Order. Make sure the Boot Order has the CD-ROM in the sequence before the hard drive. Then save and exit. Now when the computer starts with the XP CD in the drive it should come up and ask you to press any key to boot off the CD which is what you want to do. Then follow the onscreen instructions. You will probably want to do a new/clean install of XP so you will want to format the drive when asked.

Here's some installation guides:

A:atikmdag fault - is this software or hardware? + am I covered under warranty?

The ATI driver that is being blamed in the error pop up is for your graphics card but it could mean that your card is failing.

When you say "I rebuild my laptop every 30 days" what exactly do you do and what software are you using.

Windows and all Anti Virus software can be set to automatically update so you should not need to check either of them.

Follow this to post a few of the latest minidumps from the BSOD's so they can be analysed.

First locate your minidump files, they are usually found by clicking on your C: drive, in windows explorer, then click on Windows to view the contents. If your operating system is installed under a different drive letter then look there. They should be stored under a file called minidump.The files will have a .dmp extension.
Zip up at least 6 of the most recent files into one zip folder and save on your desktop (if there are less then just zip up what you have).

Follow these steps to install your new graphics card:

1. Download the latest drivers for your card. Clean all old video drivers from your system. You may use Driver Sweeper if you wish.
2. Shut your PC down and put the new GPU in the motherboard slot.
3. Start up the system and change your primary graphics adapter in BIOS to PCI-E (assuming you have a PCI-E card) or PCI / AGP.
4. After logging in to Windows just close the Hardware Installation Wizard when it comes up. Double click on the drivers you downloaded and it should be installed without any issues.

You've updated the drivers, you've tested w/Furmark. Have you checked to ensure that the card is getting enough power, that it's fan is working, and that the cooler is clear of dust/obstructions?

If you've done all that, then the next step is to try another video card. If you don't have one, see if you can borrow one. Worst case, purchase one at a place that will allow you to return it for a full refund.

A:GeForce Go 7600

Laptops aren't great for gaming. There's always heat issues and the laptops that are good for gaming cost a lot and are usually heavier and bigger with lower battery life.

The mobile version of the 7600 won't be as fast the as the desktop. You'll still be able to play the games you want but not as well as on a desktop with similar model hardware. Look at some benchmarks for the Geforce 7600 and see how it plays the games you want. You may even find a review for the Go 7600 and maybe even the laptop you are looking at.

"Monitor only displays on the analog connection nothing when digital is connected!!"

There are two different types of DVI cable (different connectors at each end) and if you use the wrong one you may get no signal to the monitor. For example, your graphics card may have a different type of DVI port than your monitor has so be sure you use the correct cable to suit your equipment:

Buy a new video card....

Just kidding. The driver didn't damage it. But where did you get the driver and what version? You should get the drivers from

Then uninstall the drivers currently installed, and try again. If it still doesn't work, go locate their older drivers on and get something from 1-2 years ago. The 7600gs isn't going to be playing the latest games anyways.

A:Problems with my new Geforce 7600 GS

Kinda hard to tell from that screenshot, as I am not familiar with the game. I assume those bars are not supposed to be there?

I don't see any pixelation, so I don't think it is an overheat problem, but might as well rule that out first. Open up the case and aim a house fan at the insides. Does that lessen the problem?

Has this card ever worked for you? In other words, is this a sudden new problem, or a problem that has always happened since you popped that card in?

If it is a new problem, then it's likely not a driver issue. Either your video card ram is dying, or your PSU is dying (not giving the graphics card enough power).

If it is a problem that has always happened, then it may be a driver issue. Have you updated your board's chipset drivers as well?

I have a Geforce 7600 GS card installed in my PC that says its capable of OpenGL 2.0 if I'm not mistaken. I tried to play World of Warcraft one night on GL and it said it couldn't load the GL drivers, install new ones. I did, and it didn't help so I went with DX instead, but now trees and characters and everything were disappearing at random, so I'd much rather play on GL if it's at all possible. ANother game I tried says I don't have the OpenGL drivers (1.5 required), but I think I do... and the DX is doing the same thing. I can play it on GL but it's extremely choppy and just unbearable. Am I supposed to install something for OpenGL or what? I'm good when it comes to DX but OpenGL is a whole new world to me, anything at all is appreciated.

Uninstall Nvidia display driver through add/remove programs in the control panel.
Make sure to run Driver Cleaner Pro to remove all of the NVIDIA garbage left behind after the uninstall:
Download install the following driver: Geforce 81.98

Set Performance and Quality settings
Antialiasing and Anistropic settings to application controlled

Go to your desktop properties (XP) and then the settings tab, click on advanced then the troubleshoot tab and click off 'Enable Write Combining'.

Turn ON Vertical sync and lower all other video settings in video settings in the game.

I think that the fix lies within the file in the World of Warcraft folder in c:/program files/world of warcraft/ WTF
You can open it with a text editor (wordpad), and then type in...
SET gxApi "opengl"
See if that helps.
If not, try
SET gxApi "direct3d" instead

It seems to be a major problem with all 7600 seriers cards and only in World or Warcraft.
It's a problem with wow imo, not the card.

Ever since I installed Vista, all games lag like crazy on geforce 7600 except for a few. But anyways it seems half the games don't even recognize my driver.

Heres the info for my gfx card.

Does anyone know the release date of the midrange Geforce 7 series graphics card, which is probably going to be called the 7600? If not, anyone have a ballpark idea?

I had to replace my motherboard a couple of days ago and replaced it with the N68C from ASrock.

The problem I am having is that my videocard is no longer out-outputting to the HDMI input on my TV!

The VGA output also on the card is however.

All the correct drivers are installed, the motherboard install was a fresh install. The BIOS settings are enabled for PCI Express.

But still nothing.

Is there anything I can do, or do I need to buy a new video card?

Thanks in advance for any help. Great site.

i have been working with this computer for quite a while and anytime i go to do anything with it, it freezes or goes to the BSOD and i know its the video card but for some reason i cannot find out how to update it or get rid of the error message that pops up. the message says something like "the video card has stopped working and has been fixed" or something along that line. if it does that too many times it goes to Blue screen of death. my computer is a sony vaio VGC-RC310G. running vista and when i turn it on and get it going the screen is so pixelated that i cannot read anything and when i had windows 7 on it i can read everything.

Hi, everyone! I have bought a new leadtek Geforce 7600 GT AGP yesterday and I have experienced a serious problem. I replaced the old one (FX 5200) and turned on the pc, then the power light of my pc was flashing and fan of cpu kept going on and off (I could smell a bit of burning smell too).Then afterward i couldn't even turn on my pc. By the time i switched back to my old graphic card then everything works fine again. So I wonder if there is a power issue (i'm using a Antec 430 W power supply) or the card is damaged. It really annoys me and hope anyone can help me out. thx

A:leadtek Geforce 7600 GT problem

it's hard to tell from a distance... it might be the power supply, but I personally think it's the card. What you could do is put it in another pc, and see if it works properly there. if it does, you know it's not the card...

im working on a EVGA GeForce 7600 GS and the cooling fan is got a bad bearing and i have searched and searched for a replacementy for it and it seems they r not out there?!?

seems that it would be a common fix?!?

anybody have any suggestions??

A:cooling fan for a EVGA GeForce 7600 GS

Contact EVGA. If you recently purchased the card within the past 30 days, they should ship you a new fan for your card.If not, you'll have to try and match one up from an older graphics card. This may or may not work. For the time being, take off the case and place a fan as close to your case as possible to keep the temps down. This is only a temp fix, but it will buy you some time to find the correct fan.
There are also graphics card fans that plug into a pci slot specifically designed to cool the card. The run around $$20 US and some work better than the onboard fan.

She has dual head monitors with the PC spanning across both (Dell 20" FPs, resolution 1600x1200 60 hz). Recently her toolbar has moved over to the right monitor, and the Icons stayed in place on the left monitor. Is there a way to fix it so the toolbar is back on the left side? Perhaps I need to verify the latest driver for that card, but just thought I'd ask to see if there is a menu or setting somewhere to help fix this. Thanks!

Try taking out one of your SLI cards and see if the problem still persists. If it does, you found your problem. There was a similar problem with Company of Heroes until Relic released an early patch to address the problem with running the game is SLI.

I currently have a GeForce 9800 GT graphics card in my home PC, which has an Asus M4A77D motherboard. I bought the card to replace a GeForce 7600 GT a couple of years ago when rebuilding the PC, and I still have the 7600.

I'm wondering (a) whether I can run the two cards together, and (b) whether it is worth doing so, in terms of overall GPU performance; a quick check online indicates that the M4A77D has 1 x PCIe x16, 2 x PCIe x1, and 3 x PCII slots, and that the 7600 uses a PCI Express slot. I'm fairly sure the 9800 is currently in the PCIe x16 slot.

So, to sum up (and assuming everything I've said is correct), can I run the 7600 in one of the two PCIe x1 slots alongside the 9800, and will it give any noticeable performance improvements? (FWIW, I play shooters such as HL2, Fallout 3, etc.)

Thanks for reading!

A:Solved: Running GeForce 9800 GT and 7600 GT cards together

That graphics card wouldn't fit into the PCI-E x1 slot. You would need another x16 slot and even then they wouldn't work together to provide a video output.

There are some people out there that I think have managed to make them become dedicated Physx cards with a lot of messing about with drivers but that would still require another x16 slot as well im afraid.

A:Geting a new video card GeForce 7600 series,,,,,

When you use a top quality video graphics card, it is wise to improve your cooling system, any move up to 450 watt power supply, or more, and be sure you have more than adequate amounts of memory.
Most of the time, a 300 watt power supply will work fine, but when it fails, it can ruin the video graphics card and other components.

I have an HP m7780n. It came with a 7600 GT, and I was thinking about getting this card:

However, according to this: you need power supply of 350 watts. I opened up my pc to figure out the wattage, but there was no sticker. I can't find it online, but I saw in a review of my pc someone said that the power supply is "inadequate" for using better graphics cards.

Also, comparing the specs on nvidia link above to those of the 7600 GT, it seems the memory bandwidth is smaller.

So my questions are: does it make sense to get that card, can my computer use it, and do I need to upgrade something else in my computer?

Hello everyone Up to months ago I was using an old MB Matrox Millenium PCI graphics card in my TwinTech AGP8x BOOT GeForce PROBLEM 512MB SYSTEM 7600 system and I thought it was time to upgrade I thus bought this inexpensive Nvidia-based Graphics TwinTech GeForce MB AGP x card since I installed TwinTech GeForce 7600 512MB AGP8x SYSTEM BOOT PROBLEM in it my PC I started having the following problem of the times I try to boot before the POST routines come up the BIOS beeps the error code quot No Graphics Card Present quot with the screen not even displaying the Graphic card s message Serial number Graphics BIOS etc The other of the times I try to boot my system see the Windows XP boot screen with the scrolling lights and just before I see the Blue Logon Screen of Windows XP the screen either goes blank with some HD activity OR the system hangs the mouse pointer stops responding This case scenario happens of the times I manage to get past the pre-POST error codes In order to reboot the system without the chance to fall into scenarion i press the reset button on the tower case I have tried modifying EVERY possible BIOS setting and this QDI has many options to fiddle with but no difference There can be a whole month where I can boot out of ten times successfully and there can be days in a row where I can boot without ANY problem i e no pre-POST beeps and no hanging in the Windows logon screen I should note the following Hardware configuration QDI Platinix AL Motherboard x AGP Support the Graphics card is an x but I can t see why it shouldn t downclock to x GB RAM GB HD USB PCI Card No USB Devices attached Apart from the power drawn from the PCI slot which is most probably the cause of the problem because the QDI is an old motherboard and I am not very sure whether the PCI slots can deliver the extra power to the card the card is directly connected with an additional connector to my PSU which is a CHIEFTECH HPC - with W total capacity and the following characteristics V A V A V A MAX W for these three supplies - V A W - V A W VSB A W I do not have any other graphics card installed The PCI slots are occupied by a SoundBlaster Audigy a USB expansion slot but with no USB Devices plugged in and an Ethernet Network card Software Configuration Windows XP SP with all the MS updates NVidia Control Panel latest version NVidia Forceware US Edition From the looks of it it is a hardware issue since the card is sometime not recognised by the BIOS If you can help me towards the PSU sufficiency then it is most probably an inadequate old motherboard Many thanks nbsp

A:TwinTech GeForce 7600 512MB AGP8x SYSTEM BOOT PROBLEM

Hi, and welcome to techspot! Try moving the pci devices as far away from the agp card as possible. Also, try taking the card out and blowing in the agp slot in case there is dust in there.

Hi, Im thinking about buying a new graphic card and found a card i liked named ASUS GeForce 9400 GT. On the website where they sell it its located under the tab Nvidia, yet if I check out Nvidias prducts page their 9400 GT looks completely different from this one. Then I check out ASUS page and there I find it. So what's the difference between ASUS and Nvidia, why do their cards have the same name, and why does the website im buying it from put the ASUS card under Nvidia products????

A:Difference between ASUS GeForce and Nvidia GeForce???

Nvidia designs and makes the GeForce line of graphics chips. Other manufacturers such as Asus, evga, BFX, PNY and others then use the Nvidia chips in their graphics card designs.

I have an older machine I use for backup Dell OptiPlex fairly well appointed with an on-the-motherboard graphics adapter Intel I think running one monitor and a plug-in nVidia based adapter running two monitors I was running Linux on it until January when I joined the 8800GT 9500GT and GeForce GeForce nVidia Windows Insider Program and installed Win At first the two nVidia-driven monitors would not work at all but in a few months they started working after an update download from Microsoft I was a quot fast track quot Insider All was well until February when both nVidia monitors quit working and my WiFi card went dead I tried a number of things but no no avail I got the nVidia-based monitors when I directly downloaded a driver from the manufacturer but after that when the first Microsoft update was downloaded the nVidia-driven screens went blank I really need three monitors for the work I do I tried all sorts of things including a hard disk wipe and complete reload nVidia GeForce 8800GT and GeForce 9500GT of Win No success I just ran out of time to experiment with it after a few weeks I'm now very concerned about my main machine It's an older custom-built machine with an Intel Core Q processor and two graphics nVidia GeForce 8800GT and GeForce 9500GT cards a GeForce GT and GeForce GT driving four monitors I really can't screw up on my Win to upgrade and loose this machine because of bad device drives forced on me by Microsoft QUESTION Does anyone have success with the GT and or GT

I connect any second monitor via VGA and extend my desktop, it works for a couple minutes fine, after that it just goes dark and says "no signal".
Not reconnecting or reconfiguring helps, only restarting the whole computer. Tried many monitors, problem the same, no problem at all with laptop main monitor.
Please help me, I would like to use extended desktops.

Brother, I had a similar issue with a different setup, and it ended up being the (vga) cable. Other than that, is your VC overheating....or possibly bad?? That's all I got for you. Good luck!

I am thinking of getting a new graphics card for x-mas. I currently have a Geforce 8600 GT and i was looking at this GT 220.

Which is better? i think the 220 is but i just wanted some expert confirmation.

GT 220: (scroll down past the 210)

8600 GT: (The right Column)

A:NVIDIA GT 220 VS Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT

Why bother? If you want to upgrade from an 8600GT - you need to buy a card that has a noticable difference.

For example... the 9500/9400GTs are also pretty much re-badged 8600s. Think of the 220 as a smaller and cheaper to make version of the 8600GT with blu-ray decoding abilities. Its more like a bit better version of the 8600GTs.... that costs $65~95.

An ATI 4670 is about $60~95. Heres a nice one at $80:

But for real big speed bumps - look at ATI 4800s/5700s or at least a GTX 260... or even the GT250 (which is a 9800GT which is a 8800GT - UGH! )
These cards are about $ 120~200.

Your power supply will also be important too. Do you know your brand and model number?

Also your computers own performance.

i have a acer aspire x3400g. back to factory default settings. all windows updates.

last time i did a restore nvidia told me the current drivers was 15.46whql or something. but now its saying GeForce 8200P / GeForce 8200P-A-AR is the latest motherboard drivers? what is that anyways. i cant get no search on it. somebody help me. i think since i might have the wrong smbus controller for my chipset that my wifi is dropping with my brand new ae2500 adapter from linksys with a 3200 new router also. thanks in advance.

A:GeForce 8200P / GeForce 8200P-A-AR? nvidia auto update is wrong?

nForce is chip-set, GeForce is graphics. I would say that GeForce 8200P / GeForce 8200P-A-AR is refering to your graphics card not your chip-set.

Hi Kevin,I'm afraid that your reply was too late.I had a chat with tech support on monday about this situation and had a case number already about this problem. I was then told to communicate with aftersales as this is a serious problem that has happened within the first 30 days of recieving the unit.As of today, I have sent the unit to HP for a replacement as this laptop was considered defective, and should recieve a replacement within 2 working days of HP recieving my laptop.

I run Windows XP HE and get the blue screen of death and a message that my PHYSICAL memory is dumping to disk. I then see numbers ascending, I just switch off, this is the only way I can escape !

Every time I reboot it checks the disks for errors but gets ALMOST all the way through then HANGS. To overcome this I simply reboot again and it is ok.

I am worried that this DUMPING PHYSICAL MEMORY TO DISK will keep happening. Maybe even when I am away from my pc with disastrous results. It just suddenly happens with no warning. I no longer feel I can just leave my pc on unless I am watching it all the time. Very frustrating with broadband

In addition when I boot up I get an error message that the CPU is unworkable, hitting F1 gets me in ok.

A:Is it a hardware fault or O/S ?

Sounds like you have some serious hardware issues.

The "dumping physical memory to disk" is fine, all its doing is recording to disk a copy of the contents of the memory, for use by a Tech in diagnosing the problem (maybe...)

Its not harmful, its just writing a file.

Sounds like you need some physical hands on Tech Service on the PC though.

I sometimes spend a long time diagnosing certain faults on a PC/Laptop. Is it RAM, HDD, Mobo etc etc, until I pin down the exact faulty piece of a computer. I have been looking into diagnostic kits to try and save me some time, They seem to vary in price from £30-£1500. They all claim to be able to diagnose the exact hardware fault of a PC or laptop. My questions are, does anyone have any experience of these kits, if so do they actually work? And can anyone recommend a particular brand/model?

Sorry for writing a novel as a first post It all started with my PC running slow on the gaming frontier I forked out for a new gig stick of RAM and all was well until my PC had random complete shutdowns Entire power off no warning nothing like oldschool pc shutdowns bam off so I had a look inside the case to see fault locating Need hardware help if there was anything obvious like if I had bumped something but I accidentally hit the voltage switch and blew the PSU Next day I got a new off the shelf Need help locating hardware fault Thermaltake w everything was fine again until I started getting screen garble Big Florescent pink and green lines on a white back ground with an offset square where the mouse was So I tinkered with graphics settings and all but it still continued So next day I bought a new Radeon X Pro I don t have a question I m just bragging lt Kidding Need help locating hardware fault gt I threw in an old Gb HDD at the same time as the Vid card and again all was going well until I started playing UT and the sound goes funkadelic three distinct different tones repeating over and over I shut down the PC at the PSU and Need help locating hardware fault restart but it wont go further than post It comes through with Clockspeed and memory count but wouldn t go further I disconnected the old HDD and it went past post and seems fine The real question is Where could the real fault be and the point of origin What could I have done to the machine could the PSU have spiked other hardware Why would the HDD work fine until put under heavy access Are there likely to be any further faults Has anyone had this happen before nbsp

A:Need help locating hardware fault

1. Where could the real fault be, and the point of origin?: Well you replaced everything apart from the motherboard and RAM so they would be your best bets. Download memtest and test your RAM for a while with it. Not the Windows version but the DOS version. I think it is on Hirens boot CD. Also on the Ultimate boot CD wich you should be able to find through google

2. What could I have done to the machine, could the PSU have spiked other hardware?

Did you insult your computer or look at it **** eyed? It is not likely that the PSU spiked the hardware but it is more possible that the amount of amps that came through the PSU was to much for the rest of the components to handle

3. Why would the HDD work fine until put under heavy access?

Well the harddrive is a mechanical object. The more you push it the harder it works. The harder it works the more likely it is apparent to develop problems but this would only happen with a damaged or extremely old harddrive

4. Are there likely to be any further faults?

Well it is still not working correctly so you still have problems. The fact that that the motherboard beeps is an indication that something is upsetting your BIOS. It is quite possible that the motherboard is damaged. Or at least that your computer is overheating

5. Has anyone had this happen before?

I have had all of these problems but not all at once. Now this is a novel

Maybe HDD related, maybe not? i could get the GRUB loader to appear This didnt work but when i put both drives back in as they were before i could access GRUB again but it would throw up error Makes sense i messed around with the drive positioning so grub would be a bit confused It s from this point that things went really wrong I used a LIVE ubuntu CD to try and repair grub but found that my GB HDD was actually inaccessible due to a bad superblock Further inspection showed that both my HDD s were showing some level of corruption I ran SEATOOLS on both my drives in the hopes that at least an error code would get me an RMA The GB drive passed fine first time The GB drive did not it failed the long test due to some corrupt LBA s that it corrected It has passed the long test twice now without error I decided at this point just to cut my losses reformat the drives and start over This went relatively painlessly and once i was setup in ubuntu i got a reminder that my HDDs were failing This feature is notoriously over sensitive though so i investigated further The GB drive had reallocated sectors that were not present before and the GB drive has pending sector rewrites as well as uncorrectable errors also not present before I have been monitoring the drives since and there has been no increase in damage over the last couple of weeks I assume they both took some damage in the crash but have no idea how My issues now have become more pronounced In windows my mouse will slow down under periods of heavy usage and freeze or lag a lot Sometimes i boot up and my USB devices kb mouse wif dish need to be reconnected before windows will detect them When the mouse is lagging the computer also slows to an absolute crawl and becomes unusable whilst this is occuring Performance in d games has plummeted too my fps jumps widly from the maximum amount i know i should be getting all the way down to around a quarter of its full speed So what has happened My operating systems are both on the GB drive the one i figured had taken the least amount of damage I cant RMA these drives without a seatools code so am stuck with them for a while besides if the manufacturers tool passes them fine then they cant be that damaged right Are all the problems indicitive of hard drive errors I m thinking whatever caused my drives to frazzle in the first place might be responsible here All help appreciated sorry for long post nbsp

A:Unknown Hardware Fault. Maybe HDD related, maybe not?


Tried extracting an archive on the 250GB drive, went at 16MB/s, lagged my computer out like crazy and i had to forcibly close the extraction. Copied the files to my 320GB (copied at full speed btw) and extracted there at 40MB/s with no impact on my PC performance whatsoever.

Seems fairly obvious then that my 250GB is simply screwed? Is there anything i can do here? SMART only shows 34 reallocated sectors out of 36 that were available for remapping leaving 2 spare sectors still, it should not be behaving like this, should it?

Just did a system restore, reboot, back to original factory specs for other unrelated issues.

Trying to get Windows up to date.......

System is:

Desktop PC Gateway FX6850-51
Windows 7 Premium 6.1.7600 Build 7600

Keep getting Error Code #80246008 when trying the updates.
It basically seems to hang the minute I hit the install updates button. The little green flashing status thing moves for 1/2sec then stops. Takes 5-10min to return the failed status. Just seems frozen in the meantime.

No Anti-Virus installed yet.
Everything else I've tried so far is working fine (programs, internet, etc).

Really appreciate the help here, as always. I've donated a few times.

Hey all!
So, during Christmas, I received an 850 Pro as a gift. After the upgrade, I installed a fresh copy of WIn 7 ULtimate, as well as all the required drivers. I started experiencing BSODs after I put the computer to sleep or wake it up. It does not happen all the time, but 3 out of 5.
Blue Screen Reder shows NVIDIAs drivers to be the cause. Not sure what to do, because I did downgrade to earlier gpu drivers that worked before.
The system was rock solid before the upgrade and fresh install.
The logs are attached, as per instructions.
Really hope someone can help me out, thanks in advance!

A:Random BSODs - started after fresh Win 7. NVIDIA drivers at fault?

Hi There,

You are right about the Nvidia drivers, Uninstall that one for now.

Seeing as this is laptop your best option is to just install what ever driver Microsoft finds through windows update.

It may get offered in the several rounds of updates you are missing as well as SP1,

Host Name: DIODIA-PC
OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
OS Version: 6.1.7600 N/A Build 7600
OS Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation
OS Configuration: Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner: diodia
That should be the first thing you do, get SP1 and all the updates following it.

Was getting the following error: "Hardware ID Missing, Windows cannot identify the device plugged into the ATA Controller 0"

To date I have carried out the following actions with no success:

1. Removed DVD and re-connected
2. Deleted ATA Controller 0 in Manage Device Manager and rebooted
3. Installed the latest driver and rebooted
4. Removed all motherboard connections and re-connected
5. Purchased replacement DVD drive and replaced

The DVD opens/closes correctly. When I boot into BIOS the DVD is present but listed as this in the Boot Menu:

CD/DVD \S[TKozp)CLD^D_ \S-L>3:H(-(PM)

God only knows what that means, but could be a good clue!!!

If anyone could please help it would be appreciated, many thanks in advance..

Hi folks My brother s computer recently bit the dust while he was at work much to my chagrin he leaves it hardware fault of BSODs assumed...? Variety - running almost continuously for no particularly reason Variety of BSODs - hardware fault assumed...? and in trying to fix it I ve uncovered various BSODs which come and go but invariably full XP refuses to load It dies either whilst loading or when you attempt to log in Safe mode boots but only after I already tinkered with a few things The spec is as follows Athlon FX GB RAM Leadtek GT GB Maxtor Asus A V Initially the computer wouldn t boot to XP at all but having disabled all but two of the USB ports underclocked the CPU multiplier to x and unplugged the DVD drive a CD writer remains safe mode now seems largely stable I was able to run a disk defrag but when networking is enabled it BSODs I ve run memtest and it comes up negative for errors I it continuously overnight and apparently no problems Some of the BSODs are NDIS sys nv mini sys USBPORT sys Haven t seen USBPORT sys since disabling most of the usbs and NDIS seems to be the most common cause combined with the added instability of network safe mode could the onboard LAN be at fault Otherwise I m suspicious it might be a PSU problem as this would explain the variety of errors and apparently unfaulty RAM Looking in the BIOS setup the VCORE seems to be fluctuating a little but having never checked before I don t know if this is normal The readings are as follows VCORE V -- gt V V -- gt V V -- gt Any suggestions as to how I might further test anything would be much appreciated Many thanks nbsp
