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.)

I have bought JBL Speaker FLIP Model FHP 2 on 14th July 2014 but it worked for only 2 to 2.5 months thereafter not working anymore.
I have taken to SPAR Artee Industrial on 29/09/14 but they are not providing free replacement not they are able to repairs as Charging PIN has spoiled. THe part is not available locally. The JBP Speaker are not working at all now.

Kindly suggest, for the Customer Care Complaints I am unable to find the Customer Care/ Replacement Customer Care / Service Center / Top Management Contact numbers for getting help for repairs / replacement.

Hello,

I just finished assembling my first build. At first it turned on without a hitch, was able to install windows and a few drivers.

I had to restart a few times, which went fine for the first few times, and then it just didn't boot back up. The power button doesn't do anything, the fans don't start, nothing happens.

When I jump the psu, all the fans start, so I'm thinking the issue must be with the mobo..

Here's a list of all the parts I'm using : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/p/JFVvD3

Thanks.
 

A:Mobo issue? Custom build won't start anymore

First, are any wires touching that might be causing a short such as a wire touching the back of the mobo? Second, I had something similar happen to me a few years ago with a new build. There is a tried and true though often tedious way that can help diagnose possible issues.

1. Remove all hardware except for one RAM stick from the motherboard and this includes Sata and fan connections to peripherals such as your SSD, etc,

2. Now see if the system boots with only the one RAM stick. If it boots then shut down add the second stick of RAM and then reboot. If it boots then repeat by adding a piece at a time.

3. If is doesn't boot then it is either your mobo or your power supply. Also, check to see if your heat sink is seated correctly.

BTW, nice little system there.

I've recently built a new computer for myself and has been running perfect for a few months. A couple days ago whilst gaming/browsing my monitor went into power safe mode and shortly after my computer shut off, I tried to start up again only to have the same problem occur , the only old parts were a graphics card and psu, I just got in a new gpu and installed it successfully.

My keyboard acting weird in past few days. if I click r, it will go in RUN application, if I click L, It will logout the account, etc. I tried many anti malware like unhackme, Malware Bytes, Adware Cleaner, JKT, TDSS Killer and my Anti virus is Avira. I even tried ESET NOD. All was updated.

I tried 2 new keyboards and still acting weird.

Lastly. I Reformat my PC twice and the virus that modified my keyboard was still there.

Help me. Thank you.
 

A:Virus for Keyboard?

I doubt it was a virus, it sounds more like an incorrect setting in your keyboard settings.
What Operating System are you using & the name/model# of your keyboard. The more info you have, the easier it'll be to fix it.

Recently sound has not been coming through my speakers, so I tried to plug in headphones and headset but no further luck. I then went into control panel then sound and check the settings on my playback and nothing was touched or muted etc. I then went to the Speakers and Headphones in sound right clicked and pressed test and it said "The device is being used by another application. Please close any devices that are playing through this device." but no other applications that I could find that would be using it. My prediction is that having no internet protection for a while and downloading off the internet has caused a virus to cause my audio to become mute, if this is so how would I be able to find this application causing it. AVG isnt picking it up.
 

A:No sound caused by a Virus/Program?

Broni, from the Virus and Malware Removal forum doesn't think it is malware related.

I have a Samsung RF510 laptop; really nice and plays games nicely, but as of yesterday I've had a problem.

Whenever -anything- that runs causing the fan to start roaring and the vents to get hot, the laptop will suddenly shut down after just 10 minutes. It could be games, I could be rendering a video in sony vegas, doesn't matter.

Thing is, the corner where the vents were would always get really hot on my laptop and this has never posed a problem before; only now it is suddenly shutting down. It's never done this before yesterday, and I mean never. Even a week straight of 5 hours of Borderlands on max settings every night never caused an issue.

Would blowing compressed air into the vents help? Is there a known issue (I did LOTS of searching all day, though it only found people with similar problems who haven't fixed them)? should I try something else completely?

I would appreciate any advice! I can provide additional specs if necessary.

Hello all,

I've recently bought a HP Pavilion 15-n252sq laptop, with Free Dos - unfortunately I can't install Windows 7 over it, due to the following error I keep receiveing in the Installation screen:

"Select the driver to be installed" - and regardless of the paths I have and the available folders, I can not seem to proceed wtih the W7 installation.

Please notice that, I've tried to use both a W7 DVD and also a bootable USB drive (and yes, connected in the USB 2.0 port and not USB 3.0 ) - but I always get to the same point where I have to select drivers.

Please also notice that the BIOS doesn't allow me to make any modifications except for some minor ones (like select boot priority, or enable USB 3.0), as the rest of the MAIN features are greyed out .

Can anyone please help me with this issue?

Regards,
Adrian

Hi all Up until very recently I have been using Scan XS for custom build workstations for our D designers in our London studio for Build Custom Rendering Unfortunately their customer service has fallen off a cliff in the last few months so I am looking at alternative options One of the biggest advantages with Scan was their prices relative to more established competitors and I m hoping Custom Build for Rendering to find a similarly competitive option I have used Mesh in the past but unfortunately they don t include Quadro graphics Custom Build for Rendering cards in any of their systems this is an essential as we work with Solidworks amp AutoCAD as much as we do ds Max I have built my own in the past but as this is a work machine we d prefer to be backed up by a professional warranty What I am considering at the moment is the HP Z but these use Xeon E - CPUs which according to Intel aren t recommended for rendering I m still happy to consider off-the-shelf systems but ideally I d like to get something along the lines of Windows Pro bit i k or newer nVidia Quadro K or better gb RAM Minimum quot IPS Monitor eg Dell U yr Warranty Under k Any suggestions would be appreciated Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Custom Build for Rendering

The Xeon E5-1650 that is in the HP Z420 is an aging processor. I would recommend something newer. I would take a look at the HP workstation site before making a decision through a 3rd party seller like ebuyer.com.

I would recommend looking at newer CPUs such as the ones found >>here<<.

One option is the HP Z420, but it gets quite pricey (~4000 USD not including a monitor (if I am not mistaken)). It has a beefy Xeon E5-1650 V2 inside along with a bunch of other goodies like a Quadro K4000 and a 512GB SSD.

It doesn't seem to me like many of the HP workstations have GPUs, so this is what I recommend: buy a nice HP workstation with a beefy new Xeon E5 6 core CPU (this will kick some mean *** in SolidWorks, AutoCad, and 3DS Max, trust me!) and buy a Quadro or FirePro GPU yourself. Make sure you check the specifications of the PSU first though to confirm that you can run a Quadro GPU on top of the other components. Also, you can easily get a SSD later if you dont want to pay extra for it in the HP workstation. That will run you like $300-500.

If the HP workstations dont work out (the pricing just doesnt workout in the end with the monitors and GPUs and such), then I would get off the shelf parts, but the problem with those is that it is hard to find components with extended warranties. If they do have long warranties, they will probably be expensive.

I hope this helps.

I had recently gotten help from one of the forum admins/tech support, Broni, to remove a powerful and horrible virus that kept playing ads in the background.

but now that its been removed, all my sound is not working on my PC. Rebooting the pc doesnt produce sound, clicking things doesnt produce sound, my headset doesnt produce sound, my microphone doesnt produce sound or transmit it, and videos, along with music on the pc doesnt produce sound.

It seems that all sound has stopped functioning I could use some help!
 

A:No audio at all from computer/headset/microphone after having computer cleaned of virus

Go to your computer manufacturers website, go to the support/download/driver page.

Select which operating system you have.

Go to the audio section, and download the file , run the EXE, restart your machine and sound should work.

It's probably a driver issue..

I have decided that I need a new PC and I have no idea what custom parts to choose; I want to build it myself, I want the best high end parts possible in an Intel build that can be overclocked when I need to. The price has to include at least 3 monitors and it needs to look EPIC like with LEDs, a case with a window etc. I have 3000-3500 to spend on it. Please help me choose the parts, if someone could find them all in one place e.g Amazon so it saves me some time. The rig is for gaming, video editing and rendering sometimes at the same time.

So, I recently bought an Asus UX31a running windows 8(in may) and it was working perfectly until a couple months ago. The only browser that works is internet explorer, which is disgusting (I miss Google Chrome) and several programs such as Adobe reader, Google drive, steam and visual studio either lag for about 5 mins each whenever I want to use them (or click something in them), or I have to close them with the task manager because they aren't responding...(This includes when I want to open pdf documents in internet explorer.

I've run several virus checks with ESET smart security which hasn't ever found any viruses...

It would be a great help if anybody could help me find what the problem is.
 

A:Multiple programs are stopping to work, also, I don't appear to have had or ever have a virus.

Try using a new Windows Restore point. This may not work because of "it was working perfectly until a couple months ago"... It is most likely caused from a stubborn malware infection other than a virus

Min. parts you will need:
- CPU
- Motherboard (ensure it can support the CPU)
- RAM
- A case
- A Hard Drive/SSD
- Graphics Card (optional, depending on if you have integrated graphics, but a dedicated is recommended for gaming)
- A Good PSU

Hello. I have a couple hard drives that my uncle was using previously, but he was recently hacked and got a really elusive virus on all of them. I have a USB hard disk adapter to connect to the hard drives externally, but if I connect any one of these hard drives to Windows, I risk picking up the virus automatically. I do have Ubuntu, but I am having trouble getting to the information on the other partitions.
How do I prevent Windows from automatically reading and executing infectious programs when I insert removable media?
 

A:Need to get into hard disk, but risk picking up a virus

Well, go into Windows and set your antivirus to automatically scan external drives. Make sure you turn off the external drive via a power button or just the power plug. Keep the USB in the PC, and then power on the external drive. The antivirus should automatically scan it.

Few Questions

My Cpu is an intel i5-3570k it should be 3.4 ghz and Maxes to 3.8

something in the bios seems to make my cpu take benefit in games and gets my cpu up to 4.1 ghz sometimes

I am using the Stock Cooler

Max temp ive seen atm is like 41Celcius

when will I be looking at problems which temeprature should be the stop point and which will be making my chip degrade

any help would be grateful
 

A:Core i5-3570k overclocked automatically? Do I need a custom cooler?

I bet you have an ASUS motherboard, they have preset OCs. 41C is fine, but I would recommend buying this cooler just to stay safe: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099&Tpk=hyper 212 evo&IsVirtualParent=1
It will extend the life of the CPU. Plus, disable turbo boost when OCing.
If you want to go beyond the 4.5GHz mark (look for safe OCs online first), buy this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018
Note: Sometimes heavily overclocked CPUs have a shortened life.

Using an adapter, I can plug a VGA cable into the 1/4" "Video In" plug on the side, but the resolution is only 480x234 and I don't think Windows can support such a low resolution natively.

Anyone know of a way I can make this idea work?

Ive made up my mind already on getting the Alienware MX18r2. My question or want for suggestion would be on which ram to get, mSATA solid state drive, and primary hardrive to get. I have a big budget, around $3500. Any build suggestions? Here is the site/link for the custom build.

A:Custom built desktops

I bought one of T.D. PowerSpec $549 specials maybe 5-6 years ago. Once I realized it was only about $250 worth of parts, I told myself I would never buy a pre-built/box store computer ever again. I can't stress enough on how easy and how much $ you will save if you build one yourself. You can buy the parts and have someone build it for your for $70-100 bucks and it will be custom to your needs. $300 parts +$100 labor and a better finished product sounds a lot better than $549 if you ask me.

Already for no malware overused CPU free tested being too much resources and have used the malware tech support to see if it was a infestation of any kind No dice all scans came up relatively CPU being overused for no reason.

A:CPU being overused for no reason. Already tested malware free too.

Okay some new observations. With a room temp of 12 C my CPU idles at 45 C. Mobo is seeing 25 C during this. Also just watching the CPU usage through speed fan for a couple of hours I noticed that it likes to dance between 2% - 5% constantly. Occasionally spike to 30% or 50%. Also, it can't hand DC universe at all. Through CPU-Z The processor seems to be acting normal. It runs at half power when it's not being used much and jumps to normal speed. That might explain a little bit of spikage, but it's performance overall doesn't make sense. It shouldn't be jumping so high when I start DC online.

Hey all,

OK here's the plan! Someone shoot it down if they find a hole in it!

-140W Power Transformer DC -> AC (Cigarette Lighter Adapter)

-New Car Deck with Aux Input

-120W RMS Logitech Z-2300 8" Subwoofer (from PC 2.1 System)

-8GB iPod

So, I plug in the subwoofer to the AC power transformer (satellite speakers disconnected and not used) then I have an output splitter for the iPod. One line is connected with a male-male line into the Auxillary input on the car's deck, one line connected directly to the Z-2300's input line.

Attached is my extremely scientific schematic of the whole idea for clarification.

It looks good on paper. What do you think?

Thanks!

A:Plan for car subwoofer... opinions?

Might pop the fuse in your transformer. I know 140>120, but there will likely be peak draws above what the transformer can do. Then again, they might be short enough that the fuse won't heat up enough to melt. Or you could use a bigger fuse (probably shouldn't do that).

A:Monitor not responding to new custom rig

Did you check whether or not the monitor was on the right input source? If you're using, say, a DVI cable, make sure you choose DVI as the source; some monitors don't do this automatically. Also, obligatory comment about making sure all power pins are connected to the motherboard; that got me once when I was building a machine.

A:Newbie questions about Wi-Fi for a custom computer build

Don't worry, we were all once n00bs

Answer no. 1: NO. Even newer motherboards usually do not have wireless capabilities built int. But: more and more are hitting the market with Wi-Fi built in, that's for sure. High-end motherboards can sometimes have built in Wi-Fi connection, you'll notice a small antennae-connector at the back if that's the case. And such motherboards are getting more common by the day.

But the average motherboard does not have built in Wi-Fi.

Some other TechSpot hero will have to answer the second question :| , I'm not skilled with what to buy and what not to buy. But I can tell you some things to look for. As for radio physics, the more antennas your adapter has, the better the connectivity - and this is (close to) always the case. This does not mean that "one-antennae" adapters are bad, but I would personally select a multi-antennae adapter since I'm a hardcore gamer .

PCIe-adapters will be more lag-free than ordinary PCI adapters, btw.

Switches are made to fit the tower facia panel and when you buy a new case the switches come with it. I did a bit of searching but other than buying in bulk there does not seem to be any available. You may have to visit a good computer store and ask if they can supply you with just a switch. A more intensive search on the internet may well find something.

Not that I know of, unless you work out a deal with another Counter Strike clan to host your version on their machine as well. Setting up two dedicated Counter Strike servers on one machine might be quite a pain, though.

Due to some scheduling issues and an unexpected issue with my car, I was forced to put my gaming rig build on hold.

Now the time has come to put one together, but I'm starting to look around, and I'm wondering if it's just as good to buy one from the store. I mean Best Buy, and Walmart, and even Target are having some huge sales for Black Friday. and if New egg is still the way to go. Could I get an updated build? Half the parts on the old build are sold out or unavailable.


Requirements:


- Quad core preferred -
- AMD build -
- Good GPU -


Please include a case and if needed extra cooling devices.

Price Range

$700-800

Windows 7 will be used. If that could be incorporated in the price, great. If not I will make due.



Thanks

A guild should be posted if there isnt one already.

Ok, i want to build my first custome pc.

I know through experience that its more complex than all these guides online because...

How do i know what technology is compatible. DDR5?

So how do i deside what is compatible with my pc?

So i buy a mother board with lots of connections for usb. Swoosh, all great so far!
How do i find a tower that is compatible...? Are all towers the same setup inside? i didnt think they were...

How do i know what type of ram to buy?
What technology?
What speed?
What time?
How many pins?

How do i make the pc 64-bit?

I hope someone understands my question....

Just how do i know if my hardware is compatible with what?
 

A:Custom PC building

How do i know what type of ram to buy?
What technology?
What speed?
What time?
How many pins?Click to expand...

RAM is simple. You need DDR3 RAM. Either dual channel or triple channel, which is defined by the motherboard and cpu you choose. Your motherboard will tell you.

Speed, anything 1066 or above is fine. Aim for 1333 if possible, but again, the RAM should be the QVL (qualified vendors list) on the motherboards website for best results.

Timings I'll leave for someone else, but pins doesn't matter, DDR3 is DDR3.



How do i make the pc 64-bit?Click to expand...

Pretty much all hardware is capable of 64 bit these days. Your OS defines whether you run 32 bit, or 64 bit.



I hope someone understands my question....

Just how do i know if my hardware is compatible with what?Click to expand...

Your over-analysising it all.

Start simple...

Whats it for? and
whats your budget?..

1. Decide what CPU you want
2. That defines what motherboard type you can use
3. The QVL of your chosen motherboard defines what RAM you can use, and whether it is dual or triple channel.
4. Decide if you want an aftermarket cooler for your CPU or not.
5. Decide what graphics card you want (bearing in mind whether your motherboard can run multiple GPUs) If its just web browsing, emails and documents go for a motherboard with a built in GPU, it'll be more than adequate.
6. Choose your power supply based on the above
7. Select hard disks, (do you want one for OS, and one for data? - SATA or SSD
8. Select your optical drives - Do you want a blue ray drive? or a DVD RW, or both?
9. Choose a case that fits your motherboard format. e.g. E-ATX needs a case capable of holding a E-ATX motherboard. ATX is the standard, but you can also get ITX and m-ATX.
10. Decide what Os you want (if you have 4GB or more of RAM you need 64bit)
11. Do you need a monitor, keyboard, mouse speakers etc?

Read this guide here, and it will give you an idea of what you can build at set pricepoints, and its uses.

A:Looking for opinions on this priced custom PC

Everything looks good, except perhaps the Mushkin memory, which is hardy but not as fast in actual performance as you might wish.
The prices are inflated over what I pay... The Samsung DVD drive is $19 to $20. Memory can be found $12... etc... but the final price is about right.

I have an ATI Radeon HD3650 AGP series card in my PC & it plays most games great, but the only thing is the support for drivers.
I've tried quite a few & there's always a problem, so i currently have a hot-fix installed.

Anyone know of any custom drivers for this card ?
 

A:Anyone know of any good custom drivers for ATI Radeon HD 3650 AGP?

You probably won't find any new drivers for AGP, especially since you didn't mention OS type. If you still have the CD that came with your card that may be the best you can do, sorry.

Hi guys, I have this PC with this spec:

RAM - 2x kingston 2GB DDR3
VGA - NVIDIA GeForce GTS250
MB - GIGABYTE S-SERIES GA-P41T-ES3G
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quad CPU
PSU - SimCool 430W

My problem is that my PC starts to give me sudden shut down problem. no warning, no nothing, just shut down like when we pull the power plug.

I went to the shop where I bought this PC to check for any hard drive error, and they said nothing is wrong with it. they gave me a new power cable, the PC lasted for a 1 or 2 days without the problem.

And then now it started to give me this problem all over again.

Any comments or speculation on where the problem is?
anything i need to know to fix this?

Thanks for the help guys =)
 

A:Sudden shut down problem after not being turned on for 2 months

It could be any number of issues. What are your system temperatures? Sudden shut-downs can be caused by an overheating CPU.

Use HWMonitor to check your temps. If they're under control then it may be a problem with the PSU.

Hello all I recently My custom PC bought a new computer and had it custom made to what i My custom PC wanted it to be I have a few questions about it though First off i will tell you what it is It is made up of the following hardware Mobo - Asus m a -cm pci-ex gb lan Processor - AMD Athlon II x ghz dual core nm AM mb Cache Cooling - Spire Kestrel-King II AMD fan Ram - gb x gb ddr pc dual channel Graphics - GeForce GT gb PCI express x dual head tv out optical drive - x Lite On DVD -RW dual layer Case - Cooler Master Elite with side window and front usb power supply - Logysis w ATX power supply OK so here are my questions What are your overall thoughts of this system Can i overclock it and if so how much while still being stable With the fan i got do you know how cold it will be What the heck is dual layer Will the w power supply be enough for all this In the picture i chose this case because it looked good was cheap and it had lights Will it come with the lights or do i have to add them I ordered it online and it has not yet come Thanks for the help and all suggestions comments and questions are welcome nbsp

A:My custom PC

The power supply will handle that system, although i don't know anything about Logysis PSU's. You should be able to get 700Mhz to 1Ghz OC from that CPU with ample cooling. Dual layer is a technology that lets you burn data to two layers of the DVD that sit atop one another. Different light wavelengths reach the upper layer (and 'burn') data, than do the lower data layer...(thats the very short version)
as far as the "what do you think?" question, i guess that depends on what you paid, and what its intended use is. It is not going to be much of a gaming machine with that GPU. but other than that it really goes back to what you are expecting it to do.

Till now, I've been using esnips for (non bit torrent) free file sharing. Problem is:

esnips started requiring the esnips download manager for any esnips download and
The new esnips installer includes sneakware: it installs its own home page, search page, etc. unless one carefully reviews and unchecks all the installation options
So everytime i give someone a file sharing link i don't want to worry about warning them about the sneakware (and worse yet, they overlook the options and install the sneakware by mistake)
Any other good site recommendations? And would you know how they compare to ensips offer of free 5GB storage with 200MB limit per file?
 

A:Recommendations for free file sharing sites?

DropBox is pretty awesome; I use it a lot. If you upload via the desktop app, there's no limit on the file size, but you're limited to 300MB per file if you use the web browser uploader. The max for free storage is 2GB I believe.

Some of the RAM is used by/ reserved for, the computer's BIOS.

Also, the GB to MB conversion is not as exact as you think. (It goes by 8s, not by 10s)

Try removing the graphics card since you're not using it anyway.

You can buy extra motherboard mounting screws. I always keep a variety of extra PC screw hardware since cases don't always supply enough as you discovered.

If you decide to check the CPU, you will have to clean it and reapply fresh thermal compound.

Hey,

I'm in a difficult situation here. I have had over 3 years of free ADSL internet at my home now (due to a mistake with the ISP). Anyway, my speed has been stuck at 5mbps ever since, with no download/upload limit.

Today though, I've noticed that my ISP has an option to get fiber optic internet, which is 40/40mbps currently and the speeds will go up soon...

But if I switch, I'll have to pay for it... So do you think fiber is worth it? Or should I just keep my 5 mbps for the years to come

I'm finally going to get a domain name after years of using my ISP's free webserver. I'm almost set with a name. I think all the words in the dictionary has been taken. Does anyone disagree?

I want to dive further in the realm of web programming so I thought I'd look for more feature rich web servers. My ISP only provide basic html stuff. Since my website is simple and I doubt it will garner much traffic anytime soon, I thought I'd stay with free service rather than pay $50/year when I'm the only one visiting the site and still learning the ropes. I need advice on which free providers I should look into and hopefully ones that you can personally vouch for. Googling is easy but I don't want to simply pick one on the top of the list if there are far better.
 

A:Looking for free web server

What I have used is Yola (www.yola.com). You might be interested in it, I like it because it has 0 adds on it. only a tab on the bottom of the page that says "make a free website with yola", and that you get a URL like this: www.example.yolasite.com. The only thing is that I use templates, (it also says "designed by free CSS templates" you probably want something more technical. It might not be any better than what you have. :-( Anyway, I'm no pro, just thought you might like to check it out! if you want to see my website, it's www.puravidarainforests.yolasite.com (rather long), but you can get an idea how you can make it look.

A:Custom build will not remain on

Take your motherboard out and put it on a non conducting surface. Plug in the bare minimum components for turning the PC on (one stick of ram, on-board graphics instead of video card, no hard drives / cd-rom.) This will help to rule out other things.

Find someone to let you test your other components on to make sure they're OK.

Also try clearing the CMOS. Remove your battery from the mobo and keep it for about 10 minutes before putting it back in and powering up.

About a year later, I upgraded the CPU to a dual-core AMD64 X2.
The motherboard would not operate properly with the new CPU, there were issues with
powering off/on.

Biostar replaced it for me in October 2007. It's been working fine, quite a bit of use,
using the onboard video and sound - nothing to stress the system components.

Yet after only 22 months the capacitors that are lined up against the cpu socket
(5 of them) are failing. 2 are bulging, and 1 has some brown crap coming out the top.
I'm amazed the PC is still working.

Were there some bad capacitors floating around 2 years ago?
This seems an awfully short life.
 

A:Burned out motherboard capacitors after only 22 months

That particular mobo is known to have a hot-running northbridge, which may be the cause of the failing caps. Also, the caps themselves may be of the Fuhjyyu or OST brands, which are known to fail under hot conditions.

You can re-cap it pretty easily using the appropriately-rated caps, provided you have the know-how and expertise to do so.

A:PC problem (virus, not sure)?

Yes, reinstall Windows, and be sure to download and install all the Microsoft Updates after the OS install is complete. If you have trouble installing Windows, you could have a hardware problem with the power supply, memory or the hard drive itself.

I've had this computer for 2 yrs since I built it. Has a Asus M2N-SLI mobo with athlon 6400 x2. 4gigs ram, Nvidia 9800 gtx, 600W PS. Most of the time runs fine, no signs of problem. Clock's acurate no lost time. Every 2 months or so, in the morning go to boot up and no beep or post. Just runs all fans and everything but never posts.

After first time I figured out when I replaced cmos battery it works fine. But keeps happening every 2 months or so. Any ideas? Battery should last much longer than 2 months. I'm stumped on this one and even my professors at college don't know. One tech support guy said might be a grounding problem with mobo and case. But that sounds weird. Mobo is mounted like case manufacturer says with brass pins holding it up. Please help...
 

A:CMOS battery keeps dying every few months... computer starts but no beep to post

Just got a new cmos battery and it booted up. When I booted up it was resuming windows from hibernation.. Would that cause battery to die? Doesn't sound right to me... Please help. Can't keep buying these batteries.

Your systems OS (Windows) was damaged by the Virus infection. A clean Windows install may be needed. Ubuntu still functions

McAfee Anti-virus Security is the best one. It monitors the websites and you can block certain websites too, you can also choose whether to perform full scans or quick scans. It quarantines and tracks cookies & it also prevent hacking from all around the world

What are you going to use the PC for multi tasking lots of programming a little gaming music and image editing i use photoshop a lot and virtual dj as well How much is your budget around usd Where are you located a k a fill out your profile malaysia Are you willing to buy online i dont think so Are you going to re-use any parts from an earlier build nope Do you need other peripherals like a monitor keyboard and mouse among others yes monitor and keyboard maybe a speaker Have you already bought any parts not yet Do you have an Operating System OS nope Will you need any aftermarket cooling such as a CPU GPU cooler or a watercooling setup i dont think so built a multi-tasking for needed Opinions custom desktop or i dont know if i ll ever need one any advice if there s anything you guys think should be included in the list that i forgot Opinions needed for a multi-tasking custom built desktop to mention do let me know nbsp

A:Opinions needed for a multi-tasking custom built desktop

Well if your focus is mainly programming with some interest in gaming . i guess an ASROCK G31M-GS Motherboard would do the Job. equiping it with an ATI HD 4650 Graphic card and a power saving Intel Core 2 duo 2 x 2,4 Ghz conroe processor. for the rams get your self a 2 GB slot (more is a waste unless u want to work on vista OS). Water-cooling is intended for computers which work days without shutting down . however if its within your budget limits i recommend u buy it since it is amazingly quiet. If not then just stick to the Original Intel Cooler which is normally included in the processor package. A hard drive of your choice would do the job( It must be SATA of course). As for operating systems get yourself either the Windows Vista Business OS or Window XP sp3 . stay away for the moment from Windows Vista Home premium and Windows 7. If u wish to install a linux distribution then forget about 3D games.

A:Driver issues with Custom Laptop

Looks like you need the chipset drivers for your Motherboard.
You say it is a custom laptop? Who made it? What is the model #?
They should have the drivers on their website.

If this is some kind of home brew?
You have not listed your motherboard maker and model, in the previous post?
Asus? Gigabyte? Something else? Again... the maker should have the drivers on their website.

A:No display/post on custom pc

Welcome to TS; sorry to hear you are facing problems...

First off, make sure everything is assembled and connected correctly (power dongles, case buttons etc.) Second, which video card are you using in this system? I noticed you did not list one. You can try one stick of RAM at a time to eliminate the possibility of faulty modules. You might want to try a CMOS reset by removing the battery for ~20-30 secs so the BIOS settings are set to default. Good luck and post up your progress or additional queries so we can help you further.

hey everyone, so i have two questions. I want to build a custom acrylic case and have noticed that the retail acrylic cases (eg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811166033) don't have any kind of metal running to the mobo mounts or drive mounts to ground the components... well i planned on running some form of sheet metal to do this, should i not do it? doesn grounding components not mix with acrylic? and my second question is, is the plexi glass they sell at like home depot or lowes the same as the materials used for acrylic cases? or would it be bad to use the lowes and home depot stuff?

thanks
 

A:Custom acrylic case

Hi Zaucy,
I just built a machine with that case. heres an exterior and an interior shot attached. i was concerned about the same thing but have had no problem with static build up, or any other electrical issues for 4 months now. it also is the best ventilated case i have ever used. my temps, OC'd and all are phenomenal. let me know if i can answer any questions i can help with.
and i do not believe that the plexi is even close to the acrylic material. i would bet that if you use plexi its going to scratch,haze and discolor in short order. i think you need to get actual acrylic material imo.
