Board test equipment

Q: Board test equipment

Hi, (First Post)

While it is often true that when you get no post after startup, that it is often the powersupply - it would be nice to know if the motherboard is functioning properly.
I use power supply testers, a great time saver, but does anyone know of a reasonalby inexpensive motherboard tester on the market?

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Well, I have seen a few mobo/ram testers on Ebay but have no idea how good they are. Just do a search on there for motherboard tester and several will come up, they are about 20.

I was try to get updates for the BIOS on an IBM Think Pad. So I came across a part at IBM'S web site that told ya how to do a system check at the BIOS setup.

So I ran the system check and everything passed except the system board. Here's what it said.
SystemBoard had an X by it, then it said, DEV 001, ERR 91, FRU 3610
Doe's anybody know what it's trying to tell me?

A:memory checker board test failed

What memory checker? If it the physical memory (RAM) in your system it's not OK to ignore this.

Memory is sorta like your checkbook. You won't notice little errors - a penny here or a penny there - but what are you going to do when it's a $1,000.00 error?

First try pulling out ram and reinstalling it. If that doesnt work try removing one stick at a time and rebooting. If it boots then the stick you have removed is bad. It may not hurt to clear CMOS also. Refer to your motherboard specs for procedure. Or just remove the battery on the board for about 15-30 seconds to reset. I have also seen a bad battery cause some weird problems but dont know any procedures for testing it except replace with a known good part.

Hi,

I recently ran a scheduled diagnostic test of my PC with the manufacturer's diagnostic software. I received two error messages and the advice to promptly replace my hard drive. The first message was Failed (Error code: WHD20-1VR) and the second was Failed (Error code: WHD16-T57). The apply to Targeted Read test and Smart Short Self Test respectively.

So I ran Chkdsk for the C: drive and received no error messages.

Which is correct and what should I do about it? The error message won't go away on the software.

Thanks for helping.

 

A:Question: Failed Targeted Read Test and SMART Short Self Test

CHKDSK is a very basic check that mostly checks file system and can be set to scan for bad sectors. The manufacturer's diagnostics actually check the physical drive to make sure its operating within the designed parameters and is more thorough.

You should replace the drive.

I remember about two months ago I was doing stress testing just to test the stability of my computer. Whenever I did a test that tested a lot of RAM, the test would fail within minutes and it would say "Execution Halted.."

Just recently I did an RMA with kingston and they sent me 2 brand new sticks of RAM which I installed. I just now got around to testing again but the test still fails within minutes - I am stumped.

Is it possible my memory controller / motherboard is bad? The RAM is brand new.

Welcome to the Forums.
 
The image below is the breakdown on how the LSC error codes mean.

The SMART short self-test that failed may have detected some certain sectors on the drive that are bad and predicted an imminent HDD failure so I would recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report your findings as you likely need to send the unit for service.

Hope this is the right forum. I have 3 computers in my office, all running XP. I want to go wireless, share a DSL connection, use the same printer and be able to share files. I've never set up a network so please give me the idiot-proof instructions. I know I need a wireless card for each unit but I'm not sure what else is required. Money is definately a big consideration. Thanks.
 

A:What equipment do I need?

There are lots of tutorials available through the Help and Support Center and on the web, but to get you started ...

You'll want a wireless router (in general they come with 4 ethernet ports also). Unless you can't have one PC near the router, figure on connecting one via ethernet--you need to connect one that way initially to configure the wireless signal anyhow, so you can save a wireless card.

If you have a DSL modem with ethernet connection, the router and 2 wireless cards are about all you need (assuming one PC has a NIC). Routers with USB connection are rare (or maybe nonexistent), so you may want to buy a DSL modem/wireless router combination unit instead, if you don't already have a modem with ethernet.

The printer can be shared while it is attached to one PC. If you want to share it without having the 'host' PC on, then you'll need a wireless printer server or whatever it takes to connect it to the router via ethernet cable.

Hoody Hoo. I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows 7. My mom has a router, a Lynkis E2000 hooked up to her PC for the purpose of running her laptop. Although I am within range of the router, I cannot access the internet because of building interference. She lives in the apartment of a mini storage facility, and I am in the building on the same property at the other end. There is a line of storage units between us, and the metal and all the thick concrete is what's interfering with the signal.

I am looking for the most cost-effective way to supply my laptop with internet. I have looked up wireless pci card info, but don't really understand if that's what I'll need. Thanks for your help, and I'll be online to answer any questions you may have.

So I guess I need a wireless transmitter and wireless receiver which then would need to be wired up to TV and my stereo receiver I think I also will be saving some money by cancelling cable TV and just keeping internet service and phone Will this Idea work One might ask why bother You What Equipment Do I Need? will still get commercials That's correct but at least I am not paying for them

A:What Equipment Do I Need?

Using a Lenovo laptop, my wife regularly transmits whatever is displayed on her laptop screen to our Vizio TVs using an HDMI device attached to the TVs. This works quite well.

The device attached to each Vizio TV is a "ScreenBeam Pro": ScreenBeam Pro | www.ScreenBeam.global

I would not be surprised if they have newer models or if other companies have similar devices for sale.

Her laptop has built-in "widi" transmit capability. I don't know if that particular term ("widi", not "wifi") is simply Intel's name for Miracast, however I DO know that my cheap ($50?) Android tablet and my daughter's LG3 smartphone both can transmit their displays to the TVs as well and I believe THEY call it miracast.

The Screenbeam Pro attaches to an HDMI port on the TVs - haven't tried nor know how it would interface to BOTH a stereo and a TV at the same time.

Anyway, we use these on almost a daily basis and "cut the cable" months ago so have no TV service at all anymore - it's all internet.

Note - since our TV watching is "all internet" that means everything we watch on TV uses up our data quota - if you watch HD movies a LOT (like more than one or two per day), you can easily hit your data cap.

Note, part II - cutting the cable saved us $90-ish per month. If we upgrade our internet service to the next tier just so we can watch a couple HD movies per day it will only cost us another $10/month. As such, cutting the cable REALLY saved us money.

Note, part III - we also have an Amazon Firestick attached to an HDMI port of our larger Vizio. This allows us to watch whatever videos Amazon has to offer on the Vizio. We use that regularly as well (indeed, for whatever reason, my wife is currently watching, like, three episodes of MacGyver per day...).

The SMART Self-Test Unit means that the diagnostic utility failed to read some certain sectors on the drive and predicted an imminent HDD failure.
 
If with the test you did you are getting a SMART test or a smart short test failure then I believe you need to back up your data and be ready to replace the drive.
 
I recommend you contact Lenovo support and report your findings as you likely need to send the unit for service.
 
Update us how it goes.

Hey every one,

I'm a hard core gamer. I'm curious if any one knows of any type of exercise equipment that involves video games? The reason I ask this is becuase a long, long time ago there was this guy on the news. He said that hes kids always sat on the couch and did nothing but watch tv. The guy came up with a way for his kids to exercise while watching tv so he made some sort of contraption where the kids had to peddle there feet to power the tv. You no peddle, you no watch tv. The guy said he planned selling it the public.

I thought it was a neat idea. Do you guys know of any thing for a video gamer? The only thing I could think of is Dance Dance Revolution.

Have a good day,

Bigk

Right now, my pc is Intel Celeron 1.72 gHz and 224MB of Ram. Should I get a second hard drive and how big should it be? 40 GB? 60GB? or more?

Many weeks ago I started having sound problems on my desktop system. All sound ( including DVD's) would occasionally stop completely, or sound like there was a short in the wires (off/on, off/on in a rapid-fire, staccato-like manner). Time passed, and the problem worsened. My desktop was getting a lot of age on it, and had several "issues," so I bought a shiny new HP desktop. After connecting everything, the problem was unchanged. So I thought "Aha! I must have a bad speaker and/or bad wires." So I bought a set of shiny new speakers from Radio Shack. Now I have all new equipment and the SAME old problem, except it's getting worse.
Any advice would be appreciated.

anything I might be missing when I can't get ip'd?

A:no ip on some cisco equipment

It's usually best to do all of your testing before the A/V's and third party firewalls are installed. That way if you have any connection or sharing problems you will know what is causing it. Often times uninstalling the A/V's and third party firewalls is the only way to be sure if they are causing the problem or not.

It's very difficult to diagnose these types of problems with the limited information provided.

I have a scanner on its last leg and a fax machine that is broken. I am contemplating going to an all in one solution.... I made a pros and cons list anyone want to add to this list or try and "guide" me.

Pros - less space, single unit to troubleshoot, 1 support path in case of problems, saves money vrs buying all dedicated units in both supplies and in initial cost.
Cons - if a function breaks it can bring down everything, may not have some of the higherend features a dedicated unit may have, If I even need just one portion and want to move things I have to move the entire thing.

Come on sway me one way or another please .

Mind you, getting TV-out to work is not that straightforward. It depends on the exact output your computer has, the video controller, video drivers, the exact inputs your TV supports etc.
First try to make it go with cables and then move on to wireless.

Im using the scart adapter to plug the red/white/yellow cables into the video scart port, the other red/white/yellow into the usb capture device. When clicking on preview i can get the sound of the video but no picture.

Is there something im doing wrong ? please assist
 

A:equipment for capture

The adapter might not be compatible for video. If you plug the RCA yellow video cable coming from the scart into a tv do you get video. If not that's the problem.

The only other thing I can think of is the breakout box autosensing the video or do you have to specify in the CapWiz software what your video source is? If so you may have that set to s-video instead of composite.

If you are looking for a time tracking software, just a quick tip. It is quiet hard to monitor employees on what they're really doing and if what they're doing is what they're paid for. This is where a good time tracking tool comes in. Finding or choosing it could be a little bit tricky for most of those tools are flawed. Most options rely on user input.

A:Wireless network equipment

Nasty issue here.

First, I assume by Wireless you are referring to a satellite connection?
If you just connect to some neighbor's wireless router to get ISP access, you've got even
bigger issues.

The right way to do this is to get an ISP connection for each site {dsl, cable, or satellite}.
Then using a wifi router, the local system get web access.

Then your get systemA-->connection-->systemB using VPN software.

In no case should you attempt Print/File sharing to or from remote systems (ie anything not
connected to your local router)

I thought the 2 cards would be pretty much the same if not the HD 5850 being slightly better.

Proberly just me being fussy , but like I say I want to make sure all is right with it , otherwise its going back lol.

Cheers

Paul.

A:Anyone with a HD 5850 run a test on Passmark performance test?

I just ran the 64-bit version of this:
3D overall 2425.5
2D overall 369.2

**edit**
I don't think I like this benchmark. I recently installed the June DirectX redist, so I'm up to date. This thing wanted to, and did install it's own "updated" DirectX files, which I found odd. After I ran the benchmark, I played a little Bad Company 2... had my very first crash to desktop... ever.

Coincidence? Perhaps, but I uninstalled this pos and re-ran the June redist anyway.

if you have more than 1 pc, try swapping video cards, the card may have gone bad.

Also you processor may have fried (unlikely)

Maybe a local PC shop can test you video card? If it isnt the card, I will go further with my advice

A:AV-Test Android Test September 2015

There's not a lot of difference between the vendors, except for features, so I personally would not pay for any Android antivirus apps. A very basic app can provide decent protection against unwanted apps. I have recently installed Bitdefender Free on my smartphone, it scans when I download apps from Play Store, all without any bloatware or nag screens, as I have previously experienced in other free apps.

Again, antivirus for Android is optional.

Hey I have an old Inspiron B130. Seems the battery is bad, or maybe it's just not charging, or maybe it's just not working in some other way? My question is how can I test?
I don't want to just rush out and buy a new battery without knowing if the laptop battery subsystem is working. The laptop came from a person who "claims" that the battery is actually a new one. I can't verify, so I want to see if I can test the laptop itself.
I wonder if there are wiring diagrams or something where I can just test a few of the pins. Or I wonder if the pins are testable at all without a battery plugged in?

How can I make sure the battery subsystem works before I buy a new battery?
 

A:Test battery and test output from laptop?

If you can't find any diagrams, just get a multitester, and with power off and pc unplugged, take out the battery and find pos / neg terminals on the computer against the chassis (unless they are labelled on the battery by chance?). Once you know which terminal is which, put the battery in the computer, let it charge (does the charge light come on? I should have asked that before). for a couple hours, unplug it and check the power. You may not see the full 11 volts (at least that's what I think the battery is on that model), but if it's charging, you should always have at least some residual power...

I did not like either the hard- or soft-ware, so have been trying Nero 5.5. with the Lite-On drive that again is part of the package. To use Nero, I was obliged to uninstall DirectCD. I can confirm that the new package is much easier to use, and seems vastly more reliable.

Maybe. The case you purchase will come with the connectors it needs. Your PSU will come with them too. Your motherboard may well ship with things like SATA cables etc in the box. If not, you need one sata cable for each device (optical and hard disks).



Does thermal paste come with the retail processor?Click to expand...

It will likely come with it already applied, but you can apply better stuff yourself. I'll leave someone else to tell you the best stuff. I just use OCZ silver thermal stuff (can't remember proper name).



Are there any points of general advice you could give me?Click to expand...

Everyone has different way of doing things. It goes without saying that you should read the manual for the motherboard before doing anything.

This is how I build a system:
Unpack the motherboard
Fit the CPU and cooler (some people find this easier with the motherboard in place. I prefer to do it on the bench)
fit the RAM
Unpack the case, and remove the sides
Fit the power supply
fit the optical drive(s)
Fit the hard disk(s) (If I'm fitting a fan behind the disks I do this before the drives)
Fit the standoff's for the motherboard into the case
Fit the motherboard to the case and screw it down.
Fit the graphics card to the now fitted motherboard
Wire up all power connectors on the motherboard
Connect the SATA connectors to the optical and hard disks
Fit the silent, replacement and much better case fans
Have a cuppa
Then check absolutely everything from the start to the bottom



If I was to buy only the components listed in the 'Enthusiast system' found in the PC building guide, what else would I need?Click to expand...

Without looking you need the following as a minimum:

Motherboard
RAM
CPU & cooler (retail packs include both items)
Thermal grease if your replacing it
Graphics card (if your not using on-board graphics)
Optical drive
Hard disk
Power supply.
Case
Screen ( )
Operating system (its not hardware but its useless without it!)

Recommended:
Decent silent ball-bearing fans to fit your chosen case

It goes without saying that you should take your time, and finish something before doing something else. If its not fitting, don't force it!

If you have any specific questions by all means ask away and I/others can answer them.

I was wondering what kind of equipment do I need to make a VPN tunnel, that way I dont need to VPN each individual computer.

If ur not posting and considering what u've done coupled with the MSI diagnostics it is very likely there is a problem with this cpu.

Hi and Welcome to TSF! - I liked the cat picture included in your images. Nice touch.

As for your issues. Your microphone needs to go through a lot of equipment before the signal is reaching your PC.

You tried different cable connections, but what if you use this to plug directly into your PC? https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0051QLXAO

Also you may be getting electrical problems. Do you use any ferrite beads?

Hi, I just got a Betacam and I was wondering how do I edit that footage? I have a laptop with Sony Vegas and Windows Movie Maker and I also have Pinnacle.. I know with a DV cam I just use the USB to transfer the video. but this analog betacam doesn't have usb.. so what kind of equipment do I need, how do I do it? Also, once I have edited my footage, how do I convert it back to Beta?

I don't know if this helps, but here is the model of my old school camera:

JVC Color Video
model: KY-1900CH

the plugs it has on oneside:
earphone, intercom, gen. lock input, and video output...

Thanks for your help.
