As I don't go menu and Monitor's won't buttons the work away am writing this I have this blue square on the screen with all the settings for this monitor Whichever button I press on the monitor the menu won t go away Not even the power button works so that means I can Monitor's menu won't go away and the buttons don't work t disable Monitor's menu won't go away and the buttons don't work the monitor Unplugging and plugging it back in doesn t work as soon as the picture appears the menu appears Monitor's menu won't go away and the buttons don't work as well Let me give you a bit of a history as it might help determine the cause About a month ago my old monitor monitor started behaving weird It started turning itself off every now and again Sometimes few times a minute Every time it turns off it turns back on with the splash screen saying quot BENQ quot and everything I had no idea why it does that I tried pressing the buttons on it to go into the menu but every button seemed to shut it off and every button seemed to turn it on So I gave it to a family friend to try and fix it He said that the quot control board quot started dying and that he doesn t have a spare one or something like that He then gave me a spare monitor of his monitor until I can buy a new one or fix monitor So I took monitor from him and sent monitor to the shop so they can try and fix it About a week passes and the shop calls and says that they fixed monitor I go and pick it up and when I came home I unplug monitor and plug in monitor monitor was working perfectly then Monitor worked for about minutes and started shutting down again And when I tried using the buttons they wouldn t work again Same thing as last time So I return it to the shop and tell them that it doesn t work That was about a week and a half ago They still didn t fix it The problem is now the monitor also started having problems It doesn t turn off yet but the menu buttons don t work Power button doesn t work Nothing And on top of that the menu won t disappear from the screen As I am typing this there s a menu on top of everything Every now and again the menu will switch to a different option like quot brightness quot quot auto adjustment quot and such like the buttons are being pressed Now I am wondering could it be that my PC is quot breaking quot these monitors Is there a way for a PC to physically damage a monitor What should I do in that case Also I should say that ever since monitor died and after I installed monitor my PC has been getting blue screens of death It hasn t happened once in years since I got this PC and it started after I got monitor I don t know if that s something that s important but there it is If you need more info please let me know I am trying to figure out what is happening and every bit of help is appreciated Thank you nbsp

Hi, I have a Corsair 550D and was going to get a h100i because I didn't realize I could put the H110 radiator on the side panel and have it exhausting air.

So let's say that's what I do, I have the H110 rad on the side panel exhausting air. That leaves me with the rear fan, the two top fans, the two front fans and the bottom fan. What configuration would give the best cooling with the H110 rad on the side exhausting air?


A:How should I set up my case fans with a H110 rad on the side?

Well, mounting it on the side is an interesting choice but could work just fine. You have to remember though, hot air rises so you must keep that in mind when building your system.

If I was doing this, here is what I would do:

Front Fans Intake
Bottom fans Intake
Rear Fan Intake
Top fans Exhaust
Radiator Exhaust

That will keep a steady flow of cool air over your components. That in my opinion will be the best setup.

I've got an Infoprint 1534 that is putting a thin blue streak down the left side of all pages. Someone told me they empty the waste canister when this happens, is that right? I'm not very knowledgeable about printers. There's what appears to be a "waste canister" on the left side which comes out and is full of dark coloured fine dust. Do I dump this out? Any direction is greatly appreciated.

A:Blue streak down side of papers from colour printer

I guess so. Waste is waste! Printers can do funny things when they aren't configured correctly. I'd say that dust is rubbing on each page as it comes out.

So basicly the title says it I have my cooler master case w o the side window and ive been wanting to add some more fans to it I was wondering how much would if benefit if I added more side fans mm as in cooler temperatures for my pc mainly I want to add these to the case will I benefit from them at all http www coolermaster com product Detail cooling case-fan sickleflow-x-non-led html or with the led probably and another question I have my cpu which is oced to and the temps arent that hot as I never rly go that intesive unless im playing cpu bound games like gw in the heavy parts on wvw I was wondering if there was a good air cooler for my intel i - k it currently runs on but I w/o window Cooler Master 431 Side Cooling wish Cooler Master 431 w/o Side window Cooling to push it abit more could u list some good air coolers on the euro margin the hyper evo is in my mind but will it be enough nbsp

A:Cooler Master 431 w/o Side window Cooling

That is a good cooler, but I personally like at your budget range the Thermaltake CLP0575 Frio

But either will do you fine for 4.0ghz on a 3570k

As for more airflow, adding more fans can help, but make sure to just focus on having a good overall flow through the case which will be a huge benefit in general.

Hi, I have a CTL 17" LCD monitor. This morning I turned on my pc and found that the left side of my monitor is darker than the right side. Any idea as to what the problem could possibly be?

A:My monitor is brighter on the right side than on the left side

I don't know which orientation the tubes have, but if it is vertical, the tubes on the left may be on their way out. Most LCD monitors unless specifically advertised otherwise (ie - LED) use fluorescent tubes for the backlight.

So, I'd say it is on its way out and there is nothing you can do to fix it short of just replacing it. The left side may brighten to normal after being on several minutes/hours. Did you notice if that happened the longer you had it on?

Hi all,

I found this issue in the last day or two, progressingly getting worse. It did it with two separate mice and would not go away. After some thinking I decided to remove the usb plug from NEXT to the one I was using for my mouse. It fixed the issue. I think that the reason I was having an issue was that the usb ports could not handle so much load on all of them, and therefore was causing glitches in the data when it was sending and receiving from the mouse. If in doubt, remove all usb plugs and try it again. Thats my 2 cents for today

Ok so i sent out my girls laptop about 3 months ago, because the motherboard and keyboard went bad. They said oh it will take 2 weeks to get back out to you.... Anyway they replaced the keyboard and the motherboard, and everything works great now. But there is a tiny slide switch button on the left hand side for a wireless connection that will go left or right. It is stuck and wont go right or left. So i pushed it a little to hard and the button popped off. How can i fix this... Should i unscrew the bottom of the laptop and try to fix the switch? I'm def not sending it back out again to wait another 3 months.

Hey guys,

I'm looking for a bit of guidance if possible.

My Dilemma:

I have 2 sets of speakers plugged in to my computer - one set in the speaker jack, the other in the line in (switched to rear output).
Until recently, everything worked fine, however now I am only getting sound from the right speakers from both jacks. There is no fault in any of the speakers. I've tried with only one set plugged in, and with them switched round - same result. Also the same result when I use headphones plugged in to the headphone jack at the front of my pc.

Device manager has indicated no fault in any drivers.

I have done everything to try and keep this video card cooler, cleaned the fan, applied new thermal compound and I also opened the back off a PCI slot that isn't being used. It idles at 46 degrees and when it's under load it's around 60 degrees. I can't play a single game for over an hour without it giving me "no dvi input" and forces me to restart my whole pc. I have no idea what this graphics card problem is. It's a PNY 9600gt. Please someone enlighten me what i'm doing wrong or is the card garbage?

You could buy an aftermarket GPU cooler although I'm not sure if it would be worth it. If it is out of warranty, I would consider just buying another card.

My CPU is an Athlon-XP-M (laptop) 2400+ running at ~1.8 GHz under full load (multiplier 13.5) down to 530 MHz (multiplier 4.0). These speeds are obviously related to what CPU-Z calls Bus Speed (133 MHz). CPU-Z also reports a Rated FSB of 265 MHz. My questions are: 1) What is the difference between Bus Speed and Rated FSB? and, 2) What components are running at which speed?

But I can't work out if this is the whole side panel or not. Although I think so.
The only issue is, I have found that air flow can be dispersed too quickly if the case is open (or has too many holes in it )
Air from fans should be able to pass over and onto hot spots inside the computer, not just disperse everywhere.

There are two white areas on the right side of my monitor. The monitor is pretty old, a 15" Dell 1501P analog, and I've had it for 7 or 8 years
Is this a sign that the monitor is nearing its end? I'd like to get a new monitor, but I don't want to until this one completely dies. I've attached a picture of the spots.

A:Bright areas on side of lcd monitor

Dimming, limited control of contrast, and limited control of color are typical of an old, worn monitor.

Your grapgic is more like an artifact - typical for a gpu problem. Does this bright spot follow the black border when adjusting the monitor horizontal size/position? Move vertical position and observe its effect.

Those 2 spots may be associated with the horizontal wires securing the shadow mask for color monitors. I know nothing about such things. With the gpu card trying to put a border there (black), it is hard to envision what electrical or mechanical condition is revealing itself as bright spots.

hello techspot,

could you help me? i have found a motherboard that wasn't use for a year and i check if it still working, and to my luck it was still working. so i inserted a 40GB HDD and a 256MB RAM and other hardwares need, i've used winXP PRO O.S... well, to make the story short yesterday it was okey, the system was working properly, but later this morning it started to reboot itself, i've change the RAM but still its just keep on rebooting. what seems to be the problem?

P.S.: i have found out that the motherboard's FSB is 133MHz, does it affect the situation???

thanks in advance, and sorry if i haven't give some technical advices for all the other techspoters out there.

A:Motherboard 133MHz Front Side Bus

The 133 FSB is a reliable and reasonably fast board if the memory is 133 or faster... on up to 400 MHZ or more.

Go to <SAFE MODE> to turn off the option to reboot after failure.

You likely have a bad driver or component... So look in the Device Manager to see if there are any yellow or red flags, and begin looking for different (earlier as well as later) drivers for those flagged ones.

The problem can also be Spyware, or a Trojan infestation, so be sure you have good antivirue such as Antivir antivirus and MBAM MalwareByes as well as SuperAntiSpyware, or Spyware Doctor, or Spy Sweeper.

Then be sure you have all the Microsoft Updates... on up through Service Pack 3.

One step at a time, and you will soon have a good unit.

you want to marr a beautiful p180 side panel? perhaps you should return the case and get one with window, instead of messing with the expensive p180. if you do choose to proceed with the cuttage, i reccomend taking the side panel to a local machnists' shoip where they have tools and experience to cut metal perfectly. i have seen many an attempt at creating a side window from a solid panel, and the results were always far less than perfect.

I wasn't sure about something I was hoping someone could clarify this for me. I was wondering if the Front side bus speed of a Mobo is bottlenecked by the processors FSB? For example, if my mobo's FSB speed is 1333MHz and my CPU's FSB is 1066MHz, does this mean that they will bottleneck at 1066MHz, or are they independent from each other?


A:Front Side Bus bottle neck?

The CPU controls the FSB. The motherboard's FSB, as you speak of it, is just the highest FSB that the mobo is guaranteed to support. Some ASUS motherboards, for instance, can run at 1333MHz FSB when the processor supports it. But if the processor's FSB is 1066, that's what the FSB will be. But the FSB speed is determined by the processor.

I have already ordered the parts for my computer, and I am still debating on what Case to get! I have come to the CoolerMaster Praetorian, but I am still unsure if I want a side window to my case..if anyone has any suggestions on some cool cases, or whether or not I should get a case with a side window, please feel free to comment!-Thank You

A:Side Window?

I have a case with a window it really only looks good if it is filled with LEDs and UV lights etc. I think now I would differently go with the p180, it looks to be the most neatest cases and is one of the best cases on the market

My case is linked in my Profile.

Hello and welcome to Techspot!

We need to back up a bit first. Open up your case and have a look.

When the system is not turned on, there is an LED light on your board. Can you see it? What color is it? When you hit the power button, tell us EXACTLY what happens. Any fans spinning? Does the color of that light change? Any beeps from the system?

Did you connect the power connector to your graphics card?

How many watts is your PSU (and what make is it)?

Tell us some more about your ram. What size and speed are the ram? How many sticks?

A:Help! PC fell on its side, won't boot

Do you hear anything loose in your case? If the CPU fan runs then it doesn't sound like the MoBo, but that would be my first guess. I will get back to you if I think of anything. Does the HDD spin up? Chances are you knocked a very small part loose and will not be able to visually see the damage. I wish you the best of luck.

Ok we have a HP 4600 color laserjet which prints the right side of the pages faded. Now, on the right half of each printout, no matter what colours are there, its allways the yellow that is faded on the right side, other colors on the right side are ok. And on the left side ALL colours are ok including yellow.

Any ideas on what maybe casing this?


A:Right-side of print faded?

On B/W lasers it means the toner is running low on one side of the cartridge, so you take it out (the cartridge) and shake it a bit to distribute the remaining toner evenly.

You may want to check that the cartridges are seated properly and that the clamp holding them down is properly slotted in.
Otherwise only 1 advice: dump it ASAP.
Lexmark are the worst printers in the universe. Their cartridges cost more than the printer itself!

Hi all,

I have a blue thermaltake xaser 3 case without a side window. I was wandering whether anybody knew of any other case windows that i could buy without having to mod my own. I heard a rumour that chieftec side panels fit the xaser 3 range...can anybody verify that for me. Or does anyone know where i can get a blue thermaltake xaser 3 side panel with window.

If this thread doesnt come up with any answers then i will have to do the mod just a bit worried that i will **** it up, thats all.

any ideas would be great thanks... :haha:

A:Side Window mod to thermaltake xaser 3

My friend brought his Xaser over one day and I believe I recall the case being slightly longer (deeper) than my Chieftec.

You're right to not want to mod your Xaser, I cut my friends window out larger with my dremel and I went through 2 HD discs on maybe 20 inches of metal

If you do decide to cut your own, just make alot of passes, like maybe 5 passes per cut. That or use a rotozip or a pneumatic

Hi everybody, i'm new here. I have a problem about selecting single side or double side memories.

My spec
Athlon 64 3000+
Albatron K8NF4U with latest update
512MB PC 3200 VISIPRO (local brand-hynix chip).
Trinity PC6600GT

my memory is a double side memory. I want to upgrade to 1 GHz.
The problem is.. the store (where i bought the memory previously) didn't sell double side memory anymore coz Visipro didn't produce the double side anymore. They offered me single side mem. and they suggest me to exchange my present one to single side.

Here i have the chip number of single (8 ic)and double (16 ic)
8 IC : HY5DU12822CTP-D43
16 IC : HY5DU56822DTP-D43

I need some advice, what should i do?
thank you.

A:single side or double side?

single sided or double sided memory really doesn't matter that much. Actually if there's a choice some people prefer single sided for th reason that some system will runs better with single sided. I think you should be fine exchanging your double side for single sided.

Hello All. I?m after building a new PC using a Jeantech case, the case has two 120mm fans, and there is a space on the side of the case for an 80mm fan. There was a extendable funnel for the side fan. I have two questions. Should the side fan blow air out of the case or suck it in and should the funnel be extended fully down to the fan connected to the heatsink. If the side fan was to blow air into the case would it disrupt the heatsink fan.

A:Case Side Fan

You will want the side fan blowing in or you will get cold feet if the case is on the floor. The funnel should be used if you have a hotspot. And finally the side fan blowing in wont disrupt anything at all, it will pull in loads of air for The CPU fan. As an example, I have a custom case with 2 side fans blowing in, since i made this conversion my average temps have gone down a couple of degrees and im running the fans really slow from a fan speed controller. Just had a thought, the best thing to do with the funnel if you decide to fit it is to get it to blow air at the graphics card.

Hope this helps. Rik.

I bought an amd althon 3400 Cpu and its not cooling the way i want it. its probably the cheap retail heatsink.

I have the Antec Super LanBoy Case which is a good case with good airflow. It has 2 120mm fans. The front one blows in the case while the back one blows out.

I want to add another 120mm fan to the side of the case so air will both on the heatsink. How can I do that? Below are some case pictures.


A:I want to add a side fan to my case. How do i Do that

The easiest way to get a side blow hole is to get a bi-metal hole saw. They cut a nice round hole and are fairly easy to use. I have a 3" holesaw that I use for 80mm fans, it's just about the right size. A 120mm fan would need something like a 4.5"(not sure, measure your 120mm fan's blade diameter). A holesaw should cost about $20-30 dollars at Lowes/Home depot/etc. Then you drill holes for the fan mounts(4holes) of the right size.

i toook off the side case on my tower and i was wondering if it would be better if it left it on.. since i have a fan and it would make it better for cold air to stay in..

A:Is it better to have the case on the side of the tower on or off?

Im not exactly sure, i guess it depends on the computer setup. You can check with a temp monitoring software like speedfan and check temps with it off and with it on. Personally ive noticed lower temps with the case off when i had no case fans. But recently i got a power supply with 2 fans, and have added 4 case fans. Since ive created a strong airflow through my computer, taking the case off would disrupt that flow and make the case fans pretty much useless, i see lower temps with the case on and all 4 case fans going.

i am interested in Dell 4600 series.
Kinda Cheap , you guys could check it out

I check out the spec and i couldnt understand this 2 point:

1) Memroy perfrom at 2600mhz with a 400mhz Front Side Bus

2) 512 ON-DIE L2 Cache.

And one last question regarding System Casing.

Is it true that system without casing kills sperm.

boy, if that is true i am in deep trouble. I have been working with a caseless system for almost 2 years now

A:What is a front side Bus? L2 Cache?

The memory does not work at 2600MHz. 2600 is just a speed index telling you that the memory is supposed to be able to transfer ~2600 million bytes/sec. Front Side Bus is the data path between the CPU and the memory. It operates at 400MHz.

L2 cache is a chunk of really fast memory put on the CPU itself to allow fast access to often used data.

Open cased system kills less sperm than most other stuff you deal with in your life like microwave ovens, television sets, CRT monitors, smoking, air pollution, drugs, all sorts of chemicals, whatever. Don't worry about that.
And you are not actually sitting on that system, are you?

I am currently designing a new system for myslef and I am a little confused about the FSB. Since an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ uses a FSB of 266 MHz, would running 400 MHz DDR RAM with this CPU (on an ASUS A7V8X) be a waste of money if I don't plan on overclocking the FSB? I believe this creates a bottleneck and if you aren?t going to overclock the FSB you are better off with 266 MHz DDR RAM - am I correct?

Looks like it depends on whether the horizontal scroll bar is hiding the tabs or not. In the 1st pic, all the tabs are visible. Clicking on the arrows did nothing. Whereas in the 2nd pic, only the 1st tab is visible, clicking on the arrows will move you to the previous/next tab.

I've never had this happen before, but just recently, I'm noticing that certain buttons in my firefox don't work unless I click them rapidly at least ten times. This includes anything on my tab bar other than the actual tabs, like the New Tab button, the Flashblock button, the Close Other Tabs button, the Greasemonkey button, and the Refresh button. It also happens with the address bar and the downloads dialog buttons (open, save as).

I'll click on them and they won't work, and I'll need to rapidly spam the mouse button ten to fifteen times before they'll actually work. I considered this might be an issue with my mouse hardware, but the mouse works fine on all other things I use it for. It's only on these firefox buttons that it doesn't work on consistently.

I've been doing a lotta stuff in flash lately, but I now I'd like to learn some server-side so I can do really neat stuff.
I know general c++ (I can create cmdline apps), but I don't know how to program for any APIs and I've never used it for anything usefull (well except a bogus-file creater).

So if I'm used to c++ (and actionscript) syntax what would be the easiest serverside stuff for me?

(not sure if this was the right place to put this)

A:Server-side programming for a c++ noob?

"Serverside"? If you mean active content for web pages, then C++ is not the tool for it. You use interpreted languages like PHP, Perl, Ruby, Python, TCL or such for that. You can also use Java for certain things if you think that everyone visiting your website has a kickass connection and a fast computer.

If you mean UNIX programming, then there's nothing different to it that normal programming. You include the right headers and call the system functions just like any other.

Newly installed ZoneAlarm and not can not see "Submit" Buttons on web site

I have recently installed Zone Alarm and AVG on my laptop. I accepted the defaults on installation.

Now I can not see the Submit buttons on the site.

Can someone tell me the setting that I need to change to allow this please.

Many Thanks

A:Newly installed ZoneAlarm and no can not see "Submit" Buttons on web site

Dunno but it seems that the firewall is clocking the request to the button.

I can say that you should use an other firewall. Zone Alarm is one of the worst out there.

I've looked thru Excel Help, but can't find how to
install a button on a worksheet (not in a toolbar)
and assign a Macro to it.

Or is there another simple way to perform an
action, such as erasing specific cells within
a group of cells so the form can be re-used
without having to select all the cells separately
and doing the erase command?


A:Command Buttons and Macros

OK - figured out how to record and assign a macro to a text box.
In this case the text box says ERASE and the macro assigned to it
erases a specific set of cells.

Now - I have a group of cells containing this text box and macro
that I would like to replicate a lot of times, sort of like a form where
I want different info in each replication.

How do I copy & paste and have the macro apply to the new, copied
group of cells rather than remaining applied to the original group?

Could it be that you have Hibernation turned on? I have never had anything good come from hibernation or standby mode. Have a look and see if it is enabled.

Right click on the desktop and choose properties. Then select the Screen Saver tab(at least I think that's what it is in 98 as well) Then look for poer options. Then Hibernate and System Standby, I would disable them both.

Restart and see if it happens again. I'm thinking it should be solved, but if not post back and let us know.

Hi y?all,
Lately i have been dealing with a lot of under performance of my notebook. The cause of that is of all the ads which are constantly popping up while browsing.
Therefore, I have been searching the web for tips and tricks/solutions to get a rid of these pop ups, however with no success.
So now I found this new forum page, and my question is: How can I get a rid of these pop ups and boost up my notebook (i7 processor) performance. Should I reset my laptop and restore to factory settings?

My casing cm690II advanced have some holes at the side. One side is clear plastic, one side is metal. I did not have any side panel fans.

I want to buy two dust filter and attach to it on each side. How to attach to it?

A:How to attach a fan filter at the side panel?

You use the same screws you use to mount the fan. The screws would first go through the filter, then the case, then the fan. You most likely will need longer screws. If so, you can get #6 pan head sheet metal screws from a hardware store or Home Center. I would suggest cutting, grinding, or filing off the sharp tips of the screws (leave most of the end taper, though) to avoid possible injury when handling the case side but it isn't necessary to do so.

If you aren't going to install a fan behind the filter, you can use 6-32 machine screws, washers, and nuts. Depending on how many washers you use, 1/4" or 5/16" will probably be long enough.

Hello. There's a small bug in Windows 7 that's caught my eye a long time ago.

It's about the Minimize / Maximize / Close buttons. I've disabled all animations in Performance Options, but they are still animated when you move your mouse over them (a subtle fade-in / fade-out animation). Every single bit of animation throughout Windows is gone, but those 3 buttons remain animated.

Is there any registry hack or something else to disable their animation, or it's hard-coded? The only way to get rid of it is to use the Windows Basic theme and disable Aero, but the interface seems to have better performance with the Aero enabled. Thanks in advance.

Not real sure what you have going on, but I think I would start by checking the batteries in the mouse/keyboard. Also if you can, after the battery check,if you're still having problems, check out the mouse and keyboard on another computer to see if it's the computer or the mouse/keyboard.

Unless I'm missing something, this is a touch screen which you use your finger to navigate rather than a mouse.  If you are more comfortable using a mouse you can use a usb type with the laptop.  I personally don't know anyone who uses a stylus on a laptop touch screen.
Just out of curiosity, where did you read that you needed to use a "pressure pen"?

I recently updated to windows 8.1on my pavilion laptop (was forced to actualy) and since am having a lot of problems. The one that's driving me nuts currently is that my volume buttons and other function buttons are intermitantly not working. any advice would be much apreciated.

A:windows 8.1 function and volume buttons

 Try running SFC.  From the Search charm type CMD, then right-click CMD.EXE and click Run as administrator.  From the command prompt type sfc /scannow.  If that doesn't fix it, download, install, and get Malwarebytes up to date, then do a scan with it.
Good luck.
