Preferred Solution: Replace mainboard???

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.)

I hope my local service center will replace my TECRA mainboard (later I will tell why). Will my HDD with password protection work and my fingerprint encrypted files accessible after a mainboard CPU replace?

Will Windows 7 Pro boot in after this main "upgrade"/ replace?
(I have read the thread about similar Tecra S5 issue, pls do not link that closed thread)

A:After mainboard replace will my HDD with password work on TECRA S11?


Usually the HDD password should work after the motherboard replacement.
The point is that the HDD password is stored in a special area of the HDD and it should not be a matter that motherboard has been replaced.

I found this info in Toshiba knowledge base:
+TOSHIBA HDD Password summary+

Hope this helps!

Hi all The laptop in question is a Toshiba Satellite A -S A few weeks ago it got dropped right on its adapter? Replace the replace the or jack power corner Replace the power jack or replace the adapter? with the power plug still in it the little metal plug of the AC adapter is now slightly crooked and the power jack has a little chip off the plastic part of it Anyway after this mishap it worked fine for another weeks and then suddenly this week it s refusing to power up Its battery has been shot for a while can t hold a charge and I ve been using it with the battery out Why the sudden refusal to boot I took the whole thing apart---minus the little chip the power jack looks totally fine and cosmetically sound Put the whole thing back together taking care to check that plugs were snug---still no power Stuck in the crappy battery booted just fine and then shut itself down after like minutes How likely is it that it s the power jack which is broken And why did it take this long to crap out if it IS broken A new one of those silly jacks costs over on eBay so I want to make sure that it s the jack before I just up and buy one Of course if it s the AC adapter that s broken that would cost even more Bah Input nbsp

A:Replace the power jack or replace the adapter?

AND/OR inside the case the the jack is soldered directly to the motherboard. Is also possible that
1) It's already cracked
2) If not yet, it's gonna crack

So look to see what connection looks like between power jack and motherboard, If you feel u wanna/can re-solder yourself or the typically price to redo the whole power thing seems to run $125 parts/labor/warranty if you take it somewhere. So how much is it all worth to you?

For some reason W7 has decided to change 'Copy and Replace' with 'Move and Replace' when picking a file up with the left mouse and dragging it to another folder where an old version of the file exists.

My Excel SS is in two places: My desktop and USB which I use for backup. I would simply open the folder on the USB pick up the file on the desktop with the left mouse and drag it to the USB folder. Then I would get the message 'Copy and Replace'.. But not anymore it's become 'Move and Replace'.

I know I can 'Copy and Replace' by holding down the Ctrl key but I dont want to.

It looks like there should be a simple answer

Can anyone help? I swear I didnt change anything.

A:Should I buy a new mainboard?

Slow running is most likely to be caused by programs that load with Windows, not any failure of hardware. Maybe check the Startup section of MSConfig and disable any unnecessary startup programs - that's bound to resolve your issues. As for the Pri Slave recognition - that's an odd one. First off, check the BIOS still sees it then check Device Manager for conflicts. Could also be worth checking the jumper settings on the drive.

I have been having some problems with my motherboard (Shuttle AK32A), and I am going to replace it.

I'm interested in your input on what has worked for you, (and what hasen't).

My requirements are:

Should support DDR only. (I have some now, and have heard hybrid/ mixed boards often cause problems)

Must support AMD Athelon 2000+ 1.67+ Ghz XP Thouroughbred proccessor. (because I already have it.)

Must "play nice" with a Nvidia GeForce 440MX PCI graphics card.

Should follow the ATX form factor.

Should be between $40 and $70 USD. (my return is $52)

Should not include a proccessor.
Thanks in advance for your assistance,

Keys are one per PC (defined primarily by the Mobo's hardware ID) - thus once activated it is bound to that Mobo.

You can try phone activation on the new installation, if 'Robo-lady' complains, just speak to a support rep and explain you have upgraded and hopefully they will transfer your licence.

Hello all and good day, I am looking at a friends pc, he just installed a new mainboard, its an ecs elitegroup p4. It has power to it, but it doesn't sound as if the processor is doing anything, it says in the manual to connect the P4 processor auxillary case power supply connector to ATX1, I have found the ATX1 on the board, but nothing on his power supply to hook up to it, could this be the problem? Is it possible that he has not enough power to run it? I have also noticed that his cd rom doesn't eject either. I am just guessing, but I think maybe he has a problem with his power supply. Please if any one knows about the atx1 connector, let me know asap.

Hello, I just installed a new main board, a VIA Samuel2 1 Giga Pro with all kinds of stuff built in, network card, sound and video. The problems I am having are :

1. Under Device Manager it says it is only running at 733 MHz, I do I get get the full 1000 ?

2. I am running Windows XP, and since I upgraded to this mother board I can not get my CD burner to work, it is a Yamaha 2200 CDR - it worked with my old 400 MHz mother board and installed without any problems. Windows XP installs what looks like the right driver, and I can see it under My Computer - it even says CD-RW but when I put in a CD it will not read it. A blank window opens, my regular reader is working fine, but it is quite old and slow 20X. Please help if you can.

Thanks alot.

A:New Mainboard 2 Problems

I don't quite understand the processor problem, what processor are you running.

733 would be 133 x 5.5, intel only sells that speed in 733 processors.

amd on the other hand would be another issue if the front side bus defaulted to 100 rather than 133 but the numbers don't add up to 733, it would be either 750 on 100fsb or 1 gig on a 133 fsb

Can anyone recommend a mainboard with built in RAID 1 (mirroring) - one that is affordable and reliable - for the latests and greatest AMD processor. I assume that the IDE connections for RAID are in addition to the usual 4 that come on mainboards.

You could try disconnecting some of your devices, and running just what you absolutly need, (main Harddrive). Then slowly add 1 piece at a time, start machine, see how it runs. (Try to eliminate a possible faulty device)

A:Mainboard won't boot

It doesn't look like you have a heatsink fan installed. Without a CPU cooling fan plugged into the CPU fan outlet on the motherboard, I think the board won't post.

Have a Manhattan ATX Case, and building my first PC. The case has dimples that rise from the metal where the mainboard lays. Case did not include plastic spacers, and the mainboard (AZZA PT-5VMX), fits just right over the dimples. My question is, where the mainboard matches the dimples with the screw openings, can the mainboard just be screwed in with metal screws? Somewhere got the impression that a mainboard should never touch any metal? Don't care to fry it, it is brand new.

Thanks for your help.

U need brass stand-offs. my friend did that once and had to pay 50 bucks to have a shop fix it. LOL. The case should have came with them. there brass colored and can have a screw go on top of it. if they didnt caome with a bag of screws go back to your seller and buy some BTW: make sure you ground yourself (fried chips dont taste good )

What you have now is what you're going to get. P4 motherboards generally haven't had windows 7-compatible drivers. There's a cutoff of what to support Windows 7 on and you're below that line, I'm afraid.

Pentium IVs aren't the best to compare to newer chips at the same speeds. Their buses are much slower and are on much larger processes.

I wouldn't even spend time upgrading to a Core 2 of any model at this point. If you're looking for a budget upgrade, a micro-ATX motherboard with an AM3 socket and a cheap Phenom II X2 or X4 processor will cost you much less in the long run. My rig has a $70 motherboard and a $120 processor (in USD). Totally worth the price.

Good luck!

Always the same.
I have removed the battery once too.

A:Mainboard faulty?

I would do a google search on the MB to find out the exact specs. Then if I had the parts I would try a build.

If your recycling center is anything like mine (a stopping place before the dump) then the MB is probably bad to start with.

i've just installed a new asus board M4A88TD as stage one of a total rebuild. so i am using all my old drives, case, etc.

problem is this board has only one ide socket and i have 2 ide drives and one dvd rom drive. i suppose ide is being phased out?

i guess for 50 bucks i should buy a new sata drive. would that be a good solution? will the sata and ide drives work together on the same board?

A:New mainboard, only one IDE socket

They'll work fine together, which is why they're both offered on the motherboard. I'm not sure on the configuration options though (I'm guessing running with SATA as well you'd need to nominate disc boot order), in order for them to work effectively.

You can get the very good 1TB Samsung SpinPoint F3 hard disk around $20 more than that budget. I highly recommend it if your looking at continually upgrading.

hi guys,

i bought a second hand pc for general office use...
its a fujitsu siemens scaleo thats running windows vista.

it doesnt see a hard drive (which is SATA) so i downloaded sata drivers from fujitsu website.
it was the correct model as i put the serial number in and it looked like the same model
i selected vista and put it onto a usb drive
i then pointed the installation to the usb drive and it found two sata drivers
i clicked next and it runs a setup.....but still doesnt see a hard drive
i have tried different sata cables / hard drive and power cables.
but it just wont see a drive
i have also reset the bios to defaults...nothing

i then tried an ide drive...and its not installing on there either

do you think the board has had its day?

thanks for reading

A:is the mainboard finished?

The drive should show on the screen at power up, if the info. isn't there long enough to read try again and press the Pause key.

If the drive isn't shown check the Bios settings, set the drive to IDE mode if possible as no new driver is needed then.
If that isn't possible set it to Sata/Ahci (NOT Raid). Once it shows in the Bios try installing the driver again in Windows.

Try d/ling Aida32 instead, GA doesn't come up with anything other than Georgia. That setup is so old, that at best you might get up to a 500 if you could find one.

I am using computers for the last 20 years and know some basics about the hardware & PC operations, I am planning for a new higher end P4 PC with All in wonder graphics card & LIVE wire sound with speakers and all,
I need to clarify
1. should the processor & mother board speed be same?,
2. If I choose a RAM with (speed ?) of 333MHZ and use a mother board with 800MHZ, Is it a mismatch or underrating the board capabilities?.
4. To simplify my question what are the difference in using a
a.) 533MHZ processor / 533MHZ board with 400MHZ RAM
b.) 800MHZ processor / 533 MHZ board with 333 MHZ RAM.
c.) 800MHZ processor / 800 MHZ board with 400MHZ RAM


A:CPU, Mainboard & Memory speed

1) I'm not really sure what you mean by motherboard speed, its more about what processor your board will support. As long as your board supports the processor your looking at your good to go. I suppose its possible that a board won't be able to support certain special features of the processor if there are any, so its best to read the specs of the processor and board to make sure their compatible.

2) Again its really a matter of the board supporting a certain speed of memory. Usually boards will have a few configurations of memory they support, just make sure the memory you want is supported by the board.

4) b, I think means the board will not support the processor, a and c should both work fine but c will have faster througput performance.

If you find the exact brand and make of motherboard and processor your intrested in you can usually get a nice manual from the manufacturer's website. Just make sure everything is compatible before you buy it and you will be ok.

You may want to double check the position of the jumper by the battery on the main board. Two pins must be crosed to remember. Two pins to clear the bios. no jumper it just forgets when you power down.
Make sure you have it right before you power up as if it is on wrong you may damadge the Bios

I bought a VX133 Mainboard by Iwill. Bios is the new 1.1 Also bought new celeron 700mHz CPU, two 128MB/133MHz memory chips, Maxtor 15 Gig Hard drive. Using legacy video card, new floppy, working CDRom &Burner from old computer, new case with 250watt power. When I turn on the power the Bios starts to read then stops. It reads the processor as 700e and the memory as 256 then the hard drives primary 15GB, Secondary as none then stops.The next thing is Virus protection. I've tried changing the cables, replugging the power supply, changing the power cord, changing the LED leds on the motherboard. When changing and replugging then sometimes it stops after reading the processor then hangs on reading the memory. Other times it hangs on reading drives after reading the memory.

Appreciate some assistance.

Found an old mainboard (PB 430), and while testing it, a long beep, a second long beep, and three short beeps are produced.

The BIOS is an older Phoenix Version 1.01.21. Although connected to a monitor, with memory in the SiMM sockets, and a 486-DX2 66Mhz CPU, there is no boot on the screen. (Video chip is on the mainboard: Cirrus Logic 5424). Tried all sorts of memory combinations, with, and without parity, but nothing worked.

From what I understand of these older Phoenix beep codes, this could be a 1-1-3, which means a CMOS write/read test failure.

Is it possible for a bad battery to be the culprit in this situation?

Hello, I have a few questions about this board. This is a micro ATX format with on board sound and video (Intel Extreme Graphics chipset 3d/2d).

I got this as an upgrade kit for my 8yr old's gaming machine. It does not have a gameport for controllers that use a a non USB connection like Gravis or earlier Sidewinders. Is the only way to get around this to place a PCI sound card?

The graphics are my other question...some of his game when they require a "Video Card Settings" adjustment prior to initial launch don't recognize "3D Hardware" Being Installed (Pod Racer).

Would I be best served by adding a PCI Geforce card and sound card and bypass the on board stuff, or will this work with some tweaking?

About the gaming devices....some of them come with USB converters, my Sidewinder did, but I don't know if it will work with other devices. Check eBay or something for those, or you could just pick up a cheap sound card.

I'm not sure what's happening with the video stuff...did you install all the video drivers? Installing a new video card would probably help, and probably perform better, but I don't know if you need it...

> I have asked "Uncle google" and some sellers, but nobody knows...
I believe this. It is not easy to get such info. Who knows how it works and what can be done is Toshiba service provider. They have access to Toshiba?s database and know which parts can be used with certain notebook models.

What I know is that Tecra M4 was offered with two platforms. One with part number PTM40E and other with number PTM42E but there is no big difference so I think if you buy mainboard for M4 it should be the right one. You are from Germany so order part offered for European model and I think you cannot do something wrong.

Of course it is just my personal opinion.

A:New Mainboard Need Help With Video Card

My computer wouldnt detect my video card either.

I looked at the box of the video card and it said system requirements a minimum of 400W from the power supply.

My computer only generates 250W.

Im not sure if thats why my computer wasnt detecting it though.

Hi, im finally going to upgrade my system in July and was wondering if anyone can suggest a new mainboard, CPU and memory. My budget is £150 for my mainboard, £230 for a new CPU and £100 for memory. I am leaning toward the Intel Core I7-2600 socket LGA1155 for my CPU choice. Anyone got any suggestions on what motherboard and memory would go good with my CPU choice?

i try to fix my father's laptop (Satego X200-21D). Obviously the mainboard is defect (does not start).
How can i get a new one? Does Toshiba still sell these parts?

The mainboard's partnumber is K000055260 (as far as i found out, this mainboard was also built in Satellite X200 series)


A:Satego X200-21D How to get new mainboard

>How can i get a new one? Does Toshiba still sell these parts?

You can get one from authorized Toshiba service provider who is available in your country.
Here is a page where you could find all ASP?s available worldwide.

But new motherboard isn?t a cheap part? Are you sure you want to fix it?
I think an 2nd hand good working notebook would be a cheaper option?.

I have an Intel D975XBX mainboard and a coolmaster 460W ( RS-460-PCAR-A3) Power supply unit.

Problem: When pressing the power button on the front case nothing happens.

The Main board has the "main board standby power indicator" lit Green
I checked that the case on/off button is ok
Swapped on/off button with reset button
Used paperclip to short the mainboard on/off pins - nothing happens
Used paperclip to short the pins on the Power supply to ensure its functioning - Power supply turns on and fan spins.
I believe the board is faulty but there are no beeps or visual signs.
I have not yet tested the power supply with a multimeter.

Any Ideas?

Hi I wanted to upgrade one of my older PCs so I bought a new mainboard and replaced up New won't Mainboard/Processor boot the processor New Mainboard/Processor won't boot up with another that I had lying around I also put in a stick of DDR and a nicer video card When I installed the original hard drive I ran the Windows xp home disk to repair the OS for the new components and when the repair was completed I restarted the PC Now the PC won t boot up It freezes when the quot check drive for boot sector quot completes I went ahead and repeated the same process with another mainboard and the same thing happens Here s the funny thing When I moved the hard drive to my good PC and repeated the xp repair my good PC booted up fine on the hard drive I am starting to wonder could the problem be with the processor I had lying around If the problem was with the mainboard it should have booted fine when I switched it out Should I try putting in a different processor Rob

A:New Mainboard/Processor won't boot up

If you used the same processor in both boards with the same results then it is probably the processor.
The drive works in the other pc so iteliminates the drive. did u also use the same memory in each board that failed as well?

I need the Productnumber from the mainboard for my Satellite. Modell Nr. : PSM35E-000NU-GR


A:What is the mainboard productnumber on Satellite Pro M30?

It is not easy to find such info except you will try to ask Toshiba service in your country. They have access to Toshiba?s database and can help you about it.

Anyway, try to check number P000400260. It should be the right order number.

You cannot go by that "I've never had a problem with that brand of ram in other motherboards." Each mobo is unique. RTFM to determine what brands and types yours will accept.

Second, read the mobo manual carefully to determine BIOS settings. Do you need a BIOS update for your new video card? 99% of the time your questions are answered in the manual. RTFM!
