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.)

A:Laptop keys stopped working and some type the wrong thing...

It could be a virus. But It also could just be your keyboard is bad. You may need to take it to your local repair shop if it. Is a laptop and have them check the keyboard out for you. I really do not think it is a virus.

When I play Diablo 3 I get some fps drops , usually at the same places. usually im around 130 FPS but can go down to 50 or even 25 sometimes when its bad. its not unplayable but its no fun at all.

The places are demanding I guess, there is a lot of **** on the screen and action all around.

My current setup :

Nvidia 780Ti HOF , goes to around 60C during load
i5 4570 goes to around 65 during load
8 GB ram,

Im assuming the 780Ti should be able to handle Diablo 3 even when its demanding?

I used an AMD r9 290 earlier and got the same issue at the same places.

Before I changed card from the 290 to 780Ti I formated my computer and installed Windows 8 Pro.

So it shouldnt be any software causing this,

Am I doing something wrong here?

Is it perhaps my CPU?

What can I do?

if you want to I can record the actual gameplay and show you

I sometimes get FPS drops when playing Diablo 3, its usually in the same places and its a lot of spells and stuff on the screen so it should be demanding more power but still, my rig should be able to handle it I think?

Usually when I play im on 130 FPS but when the FPS drop occur ( Which is not so often ) I can go down all the way to 12 FPS ...

I have the following :

i5 4570

Is this just something that I have to live with that diablo 3 is more demanding then I thought or is there something wrong with my setup , settings?

I have latest drivers and so on..

A:FPS drops Diablo 3, is something wrong with my rig?

Diablo 3 isnt that demanding. It could be an issue with the R9 290/current drivers and Diablo 3. I would try the following solutions to see if they help.
Option 1) Turn on V-sync (this probably wont help but it is worth a try).
Option 2) Clean Install the drivers by doing the following: uninstall the current ones with Display Driver Uninstaller or AMD Clean Uninstall Utility (people dont always have the best luck with this tool so I would use the first one) and then download and install the latest 13.12 stable driver.
LAST RESORT: Option 3) Download and install the latest beta driver. This could fix issues with newer cards like the 290 and certain games. If you do resort to this option and it doesnt work, make sure to clean install the latest stable driver by proceeding with the steps mentioned in option 2.

I hope this helps.

Hi been awhile since I last posted. In the house we have a desktop and 2 laptops on the go in the house.The desktop is wired internet while the laptops are run on wifi.This worked fine until my isp UPC upgraded my internet speed from 50mb to 120mb.. The desktop and one of the laptops still works fine but the acus laptop has web access for between 20 mins to 45mins before the wifi drops off and becomes limited access. The wifi needs to be renabled to regain access to the wifi which lasts another small while until it gets limited access again.

The laptop specs are:
Acus K53e
Windows 7 home premium 64bit
intel Centrino N100 wifi adapter
Ram 6gig

At the moment its running for 30 mins then wifi cuts off for a few seconds before starting up again.

Now when I try to start up the system, the POST test is just fine but then I get the message that there is a CMOS setting wrong. (See picture) The system boots in windows and everything looks okay except the fact that my mouse and keyboard are not working. Any advice on whats going on?

Did you try setting the bios to default? Or removing cmos battery for about 5 secs. ? This might reset the bios for you. This may resolve your problem. If not post back.

I have a SONY Handycam that uses MP120 8mm Video Cassettes. I used this Handycam to tape home videos. When I use the playback feature on the Handycam it seems as if it is playing back in a slower speed. When I connect the Handycam to my computer and play back, it does the same thing. It is as if the camera was recording at a wrong speed. Is there any way I can control the speed of the video camera via computer, so that I can get the home videos transferred to DVD?

Hello, I went through the process of cleaning my mouse while the monitor was off and I'm fairly sure I clicked something maybe I shouldn't have but after that the whole keyboard was messed up..

E shows up as ]
D shows up as ''

Esc, start, [ , n, y, I, F1-F12 keys don't register, among a few others..

Things I've tried so I don't waste anyones time.. [Windows 7]
Changed Location, Keyboard Layout (English - US) is the only language
Ctrl - Shift x1/2, Alt - Shift x1/2, and pretty much any other variant I could think of.
Plugged another keyboard in, same thing.
Plugged keyboard in another computer, works like a charm.
Restarted, plugged and unplugged. Uninstalled and tried to update driver..

Nothing worked so far, hopefully you can can make something happen.
Thanks in advance.

A:DVD burning gone wrong now disc showing nothing

Burning multiple sessions to a DVD-R disk is most likely the problem. (Ideally, you should be using an external hard drive to backup) You should use DVD-RW, rewritable, disks and just burn everything in one session, close the disk; then move onto next DVD-RW, burn everything, close disk. continue this until you are back to the original disk in a rotation, then erase the disk, and continue on.
As for why you cannot see data on the DVD-R disk, it's most likely because of the multiple sessions. On a DVD-R or +R disk you should burn once, and be done with it. You might be able to recover data with a 3rd party program, but since it's optical media my hopes are not high. Be sure to have the "show hidden files & folders" option ticked on so maybe, if the files are hidden on the DVD-R disk you might be able to see them.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I hope this helps you in the future.

I recently bought a 1TB external drive in the first month was the paradise of about three months here been hell ...

The problem is that the windows when i connect the disk, sometimes it correctly detects and installs the correct drivers, other times it detects wrong and installs other wrong drivers.
When you install the wrong windows drivers in Disk Manager says that is not present or does not detect the capacity, despite the indication that I have the the connected USB device. Another indicator light is always on the disc, rather than intermittently (indicating that it is accessing data) ...

To be even more difficult the drivers are registry keys ...

Have tested it on several PC with W7 and XP sp3 and the problem still occurs ...

Have I contacted the support of the disc but the impression I got is that understand of hardware even less than me ...

Can you help me please!!

I recently installed a new WD 160Gb drive. I partitioned, formated (NTFS) and installed Windows XP SP3 (using the Windows XP setup program). However, the system has reversed my CD drive and the HD letters.

It gave the HD "E" and the CD drive "C". (It should be the other way around) I can not change the HD letter back to "C". It says I can't change the boot volume letter assignment.

I set the boot sequence in the bios to boot from the CD first, the way it should be for installing a OS, right?

What did I do wrong? Why did it assign my CD drive "C" and my HD to "E"?

I sent my laptop in to be serviced under warranty because the keyboard would not work. was denied service because of water damage but now my screen doesn't work, can someone help

A:My screen won't turn on after service was denied on warranty due to water damage

Water can destroy a laptop or any other electronic device. Chances are that the water sat underneath the keyboard and flowed onto the motherboard where it dried causing corrosion and damaging the motherboard permanently. You could take the laptop to a repair shop and they could give you a repair estimate. Of course, you will have to pay for this repair. If a liquid is spilled on a laptop in the future, immediately open it and turn it upside down. This allows the liquid not to hit and pool on the motherboard, or in a keyboard

There is only a single LAN adapter in the system and ICS is not enabled. Have got them out of trouble by using a static IP address and everything works fine however doesn't solve the DHCP problem.Click to expand...

as dhcp ONLY serves to autoconf the client and you've setup static settings, actually you are DONE. The caveat of course is that you would like (I hope) to have one point of control from the DC side. Let's see ...

Using DHCP issued from a 2wire ADSL router
Default DHCP configuration
IP Address Range ->
Default Gateway << atypical here but valid; normally the router is the gateway
.....................................................and it would be at and the dhcp range 2-100

However this computer has been issued with
IP Address
Default Gateway
DHCP Server
DNS Server to expand...

one would hope the DNS would be on your DC or a public ISP; sure bizarre.
(there's a remote chance of something else, but let's defer that discussion for now)

Normally, the client BROADCASTS on x.x.x.255 port 68 and gets back
the DHCP address and proceeds from there.

=== that leads to this issue Node Type = = =

get Regedit
go to the key
set DhcpNodeType = 1 (if not found create a REG_DWORD and get the spelling and case as shown)
set NodeType = 8 (same comment " " )

Looks like the client has junk in the static config.
Use View Network Connections (on the ailing system) right-click Local Lan->Properties
scroll to Tcp/IP, click properties
On the General Tab, click both Obtain xxx Automatically and ensure everything else is empty.
Click the Advance button at the bottom
* IP settings tab: shows DHCP Enabled; default gateway is empty [x] auto metric
* DNS tab: everything empty and [x] Append primary & connection specific DNS suffixes
* WINS tab: at the bottom; NetBios setting [x] Default
.... you decide the WINS and Enable LMHOSTS lookup for your DC
* Options tab: shows TCP/IP filtering; click properties button
.... [x] all three Permit All

Click OK three times to get back to the top, click close

get a command prompt (start->run->cmd (using admin of course)

ipconfig /flushdns
net stop "dns client"
net start "dns client"
(yes, keep the quotes)

disconnect this system from the lan and wait 30 seconds and then reconnect
wait another 30 seconds and rerun /ipconfig /all

the Node Type should show up as Hybrid

Internet still works but network drive access doesn't.Click to expand...

because it is on the WRONG subnet

All computers are plugged into a NetGear 16 port network switch with 1 cable going to the 2Wire ADSL router.

Everyone else on the network is correct and so was this PC up until last Thursday. The system was being used in the morning. Had a blackout and ever since this problem has occured.

If I'm reading this right it appears that you'll need Rev 3.0 to run the 1090T but it will still degrade from HT 3 to HT 1. Here are the Cpu support lists off the Gigabyte site.

Socket AM3 - NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a - GA-M68MT-S2P (rev. 3.0)

Personally, I would recommend that you return your current board if possible and upgrade to a that natively supports the 1090T.

I have had two Scepter X226W-1920 monitors for about a year, both operating at 1920x1080 resolution. When I turned my computer on today, the resolution for the second monitor was 1600x1200 and when I tried to change it that was the highest resolution available. Windows detects my primary monitor as "X226W-1920" but the second one shows up as "Generic Non-PnP monitor". I have updated all my drivers and restarted my computer several times. The strange part is that they have been functioning correctly for almost a year.

Hello all you new people!

So, here's the story. I was bad and overclocked my AMD Athlon 64x2 2.4 Ghz processor. It eventually went bad. Didn't have money to fix it for a while, and today I just purchased a 2.0 Ghz Athlon 64x2 for next to nothing.

Now, it posts in the mobo, and I can get into the bios, then it just...shuts off. I try turning it back on, fans come on, shuts off again almost immediately. Let it sit a while, then I can get into the bios for a minute or so before it shuts off again.

I finally figured out, that the MOBO is recognizing the processor at 3800+ (which is correct) but it shows a speed of 2.42 ghz instead of 2.0!!!

I have no idea what to do, but I'm not messing with it again until I get some answers

please help? Thanks

Hi everyone first post here Here s my issue - I just got a new PC for Christmas which is great However the computer was an HP slimline style and the motherboard lacked any PCI-e ports that would accept my Nvidia GT So I swapped out motherboards and put all the components in a new case and everything seemed to boot up fine However Restart graphics loading when wrong the motherboard doesn t have onboard graphics and booting the system up in safe mode shows the system crashing every time as the old onboard drivers from the HP motherboard tries to load Any suggestions on what to do The only two things I can think of are to load up the original HP motherboard with all the components again and Restart when loading wrong graphics boot it up then install the Nvidia drivers or wipe the hard drive and do a fresh Windows install Since I don t have a Win disc I would prefer to be able to just disable the old onboard if I can I know the card won t be installed in the HP motherboard so I m not sure that just installing the drivers for the PCI card would work I guess I could disable the onboard graphics in the BIOS of the HP board so maybe this will work Thanks in advance for your comments nbsp

No beeping noise are made. so after its been powered up the monitor is in sleep mode from the initial power start. computer ran fine last time it was used. computer has been stored away for awhile. Is it possible that my motherboard or CPU is messed up or fried? I tried using the same monitor on an hp tower and no mouse/keyboard is even needed for the monitor to come to life. not too sure what else it could i said everything seems to turn on just screen comes on in sleepmode cuz no usb and keyboard/mouse inputs do not work.

A:A couple of POST problems - no IDE detected & wrong RAM value

Why, if it's SATA, and you have a free master, would you set it as slave?
Set it to master (on the back of the hard drive), plug it in the proper port, and hop into the bios, making sure it shows up correctly, then try restarting.

As for the RAM issue, it sounds as if the ratio between RAM and FSB has been changed. To find the proper value, look in the Bios for said ratio (Probably in either RAM/Memory settings, or in FSB/Overclocking settings) and use math to figure out the proper value (PC6400 is 800 MHz, so what ratio would 800 MHz DDR2 ram get to FSB to give a proper rating?)

A:Wrong AC Adapter

Like you I have clients who bring broken equipment into the wksps for repair - and like you I get the clients who through stupidity or genuine error bring the solution to the problem with them!
Laptop PSU's vary enormously and I have always said that cheap replacement PSUs are a mistake - rarely do they shove out the required watts/volts/amps and more often than not do not overheat as well.
I suggest that what has happened here is that the client has lost the PSU, gone and bought a new one which broke the power management board in the laptop, brought it all to you and then found the original PSU.
Asus UK would not have repaired this - but then they are not a credit to Asus, who do make good kit!

Hi, i was wondering if anyone had any advice.

Last night i updated my bios (ASUS M2N4-SLI), unfortunately during the update the power went off in the house when i boot now nothing happens, the keyboard and mouse are not even booting. There is power to the motherboard but i can?t get a boot screen or anything, is there any way that i can sort this out?

many thanks


A:BIOS update went wrong, need help please

Unfortunately there is little you can do if the flashing has failed. If the motherboard does not POST, you are most-likely looking at a paperweight. There may be a bit of hope if your mainboard has a chip socket (meaning you can physically pull the BIOS chip) but most are soldered right to the PCB. If you can remove the BIOS chip, you can send it to BIOSMAN where they will replace it and reflash the corrupt chip. I've used them before, it's a very good service.

As far as soldered goes, I'm afraid that's tough luck. Replace the motherboard.

Hello So I recently decided it was time for me to try and build my first computer I had a pretty low budget and well here are my specs old ripped from older computer was still working Logisys ps e Max output W EVGA P V doing What I wrong? am motherboard Intel I - LGA nvidia geforce gt X ADATA DDR G GB gb Sata HDD gb Sata HDD So I was working for hours or so making sure I unpack carefully and put the cpu in as carefully as I could So What am I doing wrong?

A:What am I doing wrong?

Hi acolthorp,
first of all, if you plugged in the PSU without it being connected to the motherboard, it would not power on. the PSU needs a signal from the bios to start up.
the most obvious answer is to go over each connection meticulously to make sure you did not miss anything and that the clips are all seated completely. read the motherboard install directions to make sure you did not create an electrical short when you screwed the motherboard to the standoffs.

I connected my Alienware m11x via HDMI to my Sony Bravia 32'' (not latest series), anyway I cannot select it's native solution I can only pick 1280x720 and then 1920x1080. The text also appears to be blue and black where it should be just black, it just generally looks 'fuzzy' the image on my TV. May just be a poor TV but I'm not sure.


A:M11X HDMI Resolution wrong

The Bravia might only support 720p/i (1280x720) and 1080p/i(1920x1080) over HDMI connection. Also the wide screen ratio of the m11x's screen and the tv might be different so you can't guarentee that you'll be able to run the same resolution without black bands at the sides or top/bottom, or using rescaling on the TV to make the picture fit the screen. I've never connected my PC via an HDMI output to my Sony Bravia but used to have it over DVI adaptor to HDMI and don't remember it being fuzzy or blue/black where it should be just black.

When you go into display settings does it list your actual TV model or at least something like "Sony TV" or just "Generic Television" for the 2nd display? You could try "detect displays" as this should allow for configuration of the output to match the specific capabilities of your TV if it is correctly detected.

If I get time I'll try connecting laptop or desktop up over HDMI this evening and see if I have any problems. Only issue is that I only have ATI cards at the moment so if the m11x has a problem it could be Nvidia related.

I have changed out chips before and not have a problem. I don't get any beeps just the fan screaming at me but when I plug in the power supply I get one light on the motherboard. I blew off the fans, sinks and rest of the hardware. I am at a loss


A:Upgraded chipset but did something wrong

Can you clarify what you meant? When you say you upgraded your chipset, do you mean you changed the motherboard? You don't mean you actually soldered in new motherboard chips? Do you mean you replaced the processor (CPU)?

If you mean CPU, perhaps the motherboard does not support the newer processor unless there is a BIOS update for it.

Because it's dual channel memory, you will have to double the data rate, meaning your RAM is likely running at 1333. Just go into the bios and change know how to use a BIOS right?

Core Speed should say 2800 Mhz if you stress your CPU while running CPU-z.

My CPU fan was starting to get really noisy so I figured it was having trouble blowing past all the dust and lint upon inspection I found that the whole heat sink was covered in a solid piece of lint Now I m pretty good with computers I ve completely disassembled upgraded and reassembled my laptop and it works fine hence i m able to post this Even my PC was mostly built by me So I took off the heat sink and the fan from the processor so that I could clean them The fan works great now but the computer won t boot It turns on for about seconds displaying an intel logo and wrong cleaning fan sink heat and Pc gone then crashes Now I haven t reapplied the thermal paste to the CPU but that should only affect it s ability to cool itself once running it shouldn t prevent it from working at all So just to clarify The CPU stayed in it s socket and Pc fan and heat sink cleaning gone wrong separated from the adhesive paste on the heat sink Any idea on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated nbsp

A:Pc fan and heat sink cleaning gone wrong

Nvm. I figured it out. While I had it open I decided to throw some extra ram in from one of my old computers. Which was dumb of me. I didn't even check to see if they were the same type. Not only were they different brands and sizes, but also type and speed as well. So I think that may have something to do with it, cause when I took that out then it worked. Either that or when removing the heat sink the cpu got jostled, cause to check for broken pins I removed the cpu, found none, and put it back properly. so that might have done the trick too. either way, it's all good now.

HP DV6000 notebook,
has a nvidia go 7200 vid card

was having issues with secondary monitor, so went to reinstall the drivers. a bunch of posts suggested using these custom video drivers from and i foolishly figured it couldn't break anything.

Restarted after install to no image and post beeps: one long and 3 short which im assuming is something video related.

I pulled the hd figuring i would just delete the driver files, but even with the hd unplugged i get the same beep which leads me to believe that the driver install somehow altered the bios.

Suggestions? i don't even know a way to reset a notebook bios.

A:GeForce FX go 5600 driver automatic update to wrong driver?

With an old laptop like that, I'd suggest going to the manufacturers site and download their latest driver for that unit first. It may be dated but that's OK. You'll know that that driver is supposed to work, and you can continue on from there. Uninstall the old drivers from the add remove programs app. Then uninstall the GPU from device manager. Run a program like Guru3D - Driver Sweeper to clean up any orphaned files before installing the new drivers. If there is a better more nVidia specific program for cleaning the drivers hopefully one of the regulars here will post a link to it. That utility works on both nVidia and ATI drivers. If the downloaded drivers work you can let it go or start slowly upgrading to newer drivers till you find one you are happy with. There's not really any way to lock a driver. You might be looking at a dying GPU also so keep that in mind.

One other thing. When you reboot after uninstalling the device and drivers and reboot, keep closing the little "found new hardware" balloons in the lower right corner till you get a message "there was a problem loading drivers for this device". That stops the OS from installing generic drivers.

Hi folks,

Here's the setup:

3 desktops:
- 1 runs Windows XP Home SP2
- Two run Windows Vista Home Premium

My laptop: Running XP Pro SP3

Every computer is hooked via ethernet into the same router.

All the other computers do not use a firewall. My laptop does.

The three desktops are all in the same workgroup, named WORKGROUP. They can see each other on the network fine and dandy.
I set my laptop's workgroup to WORKGROUP as well. I even completely disabled my firewall.

when I go My Network Places > Entire Network > Microsoft Windows Network > Workgroup I get a message saying that the Workgroup is not accessible.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Help's appreciated,


A:Not sure what I'm doing wrong - Networking Issues

"All the other computers do not use a firewall. My laptop does"...

Enable ALL firewalls. The firewalls are enabled by default in Vista as well as XP, so you must have turned them off. If you had configured the Network Internet & File Sharing properly, the firewalls would also be configured, so no need to turn them off at all. Get back into the Network & Sharing settings and enable file sharing properly. Take your time and look at all options

hi kersley

Even if the motherboard is fried, I don't think that this would result in any loss of data as the data is stored on you Hard Disk. So as for your really important data, you should be ok. Replace the motherboard (if that's your only problem - I would check the power supply as well) and all should be good.

A:CMOS settings wrong F1 to run setup

Does it happen to say anything more specific? Like which CMOS setting is wrong? Some computer complain even when you change the peripherals like remove a PS/2 mouse.

What if you actually press F1, load the defaults in there and save the settings? There may be several kinds of defaults you can load.

If it still keeps forgetting the settings even after replacing the battery (with a new one I hope (and the new battery is the right type and is making contact)), then it may be the motherboard that has gone bad. Not much you can do about that.

Maybe try updating the system BIOS in the very unlikely case that it is some BIOS glitch that corrupts the settings..

I got this cheap computer the other day and i decided id put some more memory in it so i could play world of warcraft. It started with 320mb total but i got another 256 so i could get 512 total with 2 256s but when i try to put in the other 256, the computer makes a beepig sound instead of working. It works when i take the first 256 out and just use the 64(im guessing it has no label) but when i try to take out the 64 and use only the 256 or both, it doesnt work and just makes the noise.

Whats wrong with it? its a dell optiplex gx115. Is the 64 stick somthing special or is it somthing else since i dont actually know if its only a 64, the computer says theres 320 total so im guessing its a 64. What can i do to fix it and how can i get 512 total in the computer.

A:Computer Won't POST after a POWER outage! What is wrong?

In a situation like this, the power supply is the usual suspect.

I shouldn't think that this would be an issue. A high voltage spike might have taken out the light bulb. But that's just speculation

Hi all, I'm new to this forum (I have introduced myself in the introductions forum). Starting recently, something seems to have happened to the on board audio on my Asus P5KR motherboard. You see, the left channel is fine, but the right channel is about 50% volume compared to the left. Also, when I turn the volume up relatively loud, I can quite clearly hear severe fuzz/distortion in the right channel.
I have done a number of things: I tried with headphones and speakers, I swapped around the cable going into the amp (when I did, the problem swapped), used different cable, went through every darn setting, installed the specific motherboard audio driver rather than the default OS driver, and I even uninstalled the audio device in the device manager and reinstalled it. After all of this, I still have an extremely annoying problem. I would appreciate any help, thanks in advance.


A:Something is wrong with mobo audio

You will likely have to disable your audio, and install a PCI or PCI-E audio card. You have all the symptoms of damage caused by over-driving the audio. They are very fragile, and often cannot take high volume loads. Doubt that you problem will otherwise be fixable.

Should I be trying to boost the transmission range of the router to get a better signal or the reception of the PCI WiFi card in my computer? I don't want to fish ethernet cables through the house then outside under ground to the shop in order to recieve internet there. I tried using a 9 dbi antenna vs the 2 dbi that came with the wireless PCI card. I recieve the modem signal but it has 0 strength.

A:WiFi signal - Am I going about this the wrong way?


Its a joint effort. The router needs abit of help also.

When I insert a cd into the computer, it doesn't work. I want to write some files to the cd, but when I click on it, it says to insert a cd. What should I do?

A:Something's wrong when I insert a CD

Does it recognize any cd?

If you insert the Win install disk in the cd and reboot with cd selected before hd in boot sequence, does it boot the install disk?

My computer has done something that I have never seen before My monitor came up with the quot out of range error quot Normally thats pretty easy to fix and I wouldn t have a problem with it but then it decided to get worse I powered the computer down and when I tried to reboot it failed horribly The normal mobo startup logo came up i got the load successful beep and then the colours went nuts like when your gc dies or gets dislodged After that the Something gone wrong horribly computer has my with screen went black and little Something has gone horribly wrong with my computer lines of colour flickered over the screen occasionly It stayed like this for about - seconds and then it beeped the Something has gone horribly wrong with my computer same beep as before and restarted itself The same thing Something has gone horribly wrong with my computer continues to happen in a loop and there just nothing i can do I thought it might be just the gc and out of range deal that went wrong but i booted into safe mode and the gc was set as low as it would go so fixing the out of range problem became a little harder I havn t tried a different monitor yet but I m going to give that a go as soon as I can get my hands on one That still doesn t solve the problem of not booting though BIOS doesn t seem to want to open up either my computer is intent on doing this loop thing I m so very confused and can t think of anything to do at all apart from trash it and start over Any ideas I m stumped nbsp

A:Something has gone horribly wrong with my computer

If you have tried to clear the CMOS and the boot problem is still there, replace the power supply first

I currently own three Computers, all of which are differant ages but are all Windows XP's. One is slow, one is kind of fast, and the other doesn't work. The one that doesn't work is because the monitor is dead. Me and my Grandma made sure all of the plug-ins were in the proper places, and the Monitor just doesn't turn on! The computer starts up and I can see the main computer light turn on, it's running just fine. There is the start-up sound, and you can hear noise from it. But you can't see anything out of it. The monitor light doesn't even turn on! Does anybody have a solution to this?

A:Dead Screen. Period.

You have three PCs. Can you try another monitor from one of the other PCs? If it works, it would be a good bet the original monitor is dead.

Hi thanks for reading I have a down of shuts a Computer after period time really weird problem with my PC which Computer shuts down after a period of time I built myself at the end of last year It worked fine until some months ago when I was playing Call of Duty the frame rate dropped drastically I play it all High smoothly with an XFX GT I thought it strange but expected it to stop in a few moments but after a few seconds the whole computer shut off This had never happened before so thinking it was some random error I switched it on went off for awhile and when I came back it was off once more I started it up again only to have it shut off by itself again after some booting Desperate this repeated for a couple of times till I opened the casing cover checked everything was connected closed the casing and started it up However this time I had left my computer tower lying on the floor instead of it standing straight up as it was previously Strangely it didn t shut off This works until now- a day ago I stood the tower straight up while it was on It didn t turn off for a long time about an hour or so then it shut off So now it s lying on the floor again Please help if you can I have no idea what s happening I do have some other problems with my PC since I am a completely amateur to PC building and was rather surprised to find my rig works the first time after assembly but I m sure that they re not related to this I m thinking it s a cooling problem but I ve no idea where to begin Specs Asus P K Pro mobo Intel Core Quad Q x GB Corsair DDR MHz PC - XFX GT XXX Edition Ac Bel W ATX PSU Centurion CAC-T Casing EDIT My mobo included some AI Suite that allows me to view the CPU s temperature When the case is lying down it s about - C not under load But when I stand the case upright it rises to C and I immediately lie the case down because I don t dare let it go any higher Upon checking the CPU Heatsink Fan all screws connected it to the mobo were loose I screwed them tightly but the above situation happened again although it was a tad slower to happen I removed the CHF and checked out the CPU- there was some melted stuff on it so I assume it s the thermal paste So what is wrong with it Should I buy another heatsink fan or what nbsp

A:Computer shuts down after a period of time

Hey there Beanbag

Yea it might be an overheating problem but its not to say.... your graphics card could be overheating or even the processor.... It could also be that your PSU is giving in....
