Hello everyone this is my first Failing Motherboard? time on the Tech Support Guy forums I ve been having some kind of problem with my computer and I m hoping someone here can help me I m beginning to suspect that something is wrong with my motherboard but since I m no expert I can t be sure that it is the source of my problems I have an ASUS CUSL with a Pentium III E chip At first the problem began when my computer would not boot up one day I would keep hitting the power button then nothing So I opened the case made sure everything was connected properly and it did eventually boot up But the problem persisted intermittently Failing Motherboard? So I figured that I probably had a bad power switch and replaced it Apparently that wasn t the main issue because while I was now getting the computer to boot up it would often just power itself down into some kind of bizarre suspend mode that I couldn t get it out of I would have to literally unplug the computer to get it to completely shut off At this point I thought there must be something wrong with the power supply it was a W unit that I d owned for about years or so So I went out and replaced my power supply with a nice W Ultra Connect power supply Well just when I thought my problems were over I am finding out they ve only just begun Now my computer is doing weird things like when I try to power it down it will go through the Windows shutdown screen but freeze at the very end The hard drive will spin down but the screen will be frozen at the shutdown screen and the fans are still running Again the only way to get it to completely shut off is to kill the switch on the power supply and this is only IF I managed to get it booted up to begin with like this morning In other words it still won t power back on much of the time Another small thing I ve noticed is that my taskbar clock no longer keeps the proper time Is it possible my motherboard is going out on me Could this have anything to do with the the round battery mounted on the board -spadowski nbsp

After erroneous uninstallation of C-Media audio drive, the motherboard CD reinstallation failed & caused serious systemic error & Windows Media Player or any media player cannot read any media file along with CD-ROM/DVD-ROM became crashed & USB 3G Donggle failed to configure, but pen drives are still detected & working . In that situation I downloaded all the motherboard drivers from manufacturer's website & reinstalled but due to the old version of Intel Graphics Chipset(version:, skipped the chipset installation(my version:, but still the WMP cannot play audio files but play saved & VCD video files & USB 3G Donggle still failed to configure, though the CD-ROM detects both audio ,video & software discs. Whereas DVD-ROM only detects the audio CDs & VCDs with in built media players. So, kindly help me to solve my problem. Earnestly waiting for your precious reply.

first off i AN7 help during need abit failing motherboard POST, have a watt power supply amdxp chip ghz i think abit an mobo and some sticks of mushkin ram mb ok so heres the problem over the last years since ive had this rig it has randomly rebooted or times with the siren type sound from the motherboard speaker also whenever i have had to add new abit AN7 motherboard failing during POST, need help hardware be it sata HDD or dvd drives whatever when i try to reboot i get - seconds of fans spinning and then it will die again and the siren sounds goes off this also happened during power outages etc but not when i restarted through windows or the reset button on the case normally after anywhere from mins to hours i could reboot and it would just seem to kick over and startup and then it would run fine for days anyway i went to change a video card today and decided that i wanted to get to the bottom of this problem after a few hours of powering off and rebooting i couldnt get it to boot and it fails at post about halfway through the power up sequence with a CF error which has to do with the readwrite status of the bios from what i have read anyway i took off the mobo and made sure it wasnt touching the case etc cleaned all the part still no boot right now all i have connected are the processor stick of ram and the heat sink took the heat sink off before and noticed the thermal pad was pretty much destroyed after years use i know i need a new one or some paste but my question is is it possible that it wouldnt post boot because of lack of heatsink paste im pretty sure the chip isnt fried and the power supply is definatly good as tested on another setup any suggestions do amd or abit have a fail safe so that if the processor isnt connected to a heat sink through the pad paste it wont post or boot please help thanks first post sorry if it is confusing nbsp

A:abit AN7 motherboard failing during POST, need help

I am just going into a meeting, so I didn't really read the details. I'll come back to you in a few hours, but the first thing you need to do is get some thermal paste.

Without it, the CPU can't transfer its heat to the heatsink. You currently have NO thermal paste/pad? Don't try to turn on your system any more, until you have some thermal paste in there!!

So I've had my HP DV6000 for quite a while and it has been down with graphics card problems for almost two years. I finally got around to getting a new motherboard for it and got it all put together. I formatted the hard drive so it was completely blank and put the Windows 7 instal disk in and it loads to a certain point and then hangs up and the screen turns into blue and white lines. I'm completely stuck with this. I tried swapping hard drives, reseating the ram and am at a loss.

A:HP Failing to complete OS install after new motherboard

Unless the motherboard was another DV6000 motherboard, then your Windows license is effectively null and void, so do tell a little more about this new motherboard because it may very well be that even if we resolve the one issue, you'd just hit another immediately.

A few months ago, a weird noise problem started coming out of the computer. I took the comp apart and then found out that the motherboard HEATSINK, not the CPU heatsink was failing. Now this motherboard came with its own heatsink, so I went to some local computer shop and they said that I must call the manufacturer and tell them about it. So I e-mailed Giga-Byte and now I am still awaiting for a reply. What would happen if the fan is fails for the motherboard heatsink? Would it cause any hardware damage or errors around it?

Hi i bought an ebay "Front Panel USB 3.0 Port Hub"
Here --->

after installing it via "PCI-E, USB2.0 9PIN, DC Big 4PIN (3PIN)"
it worked half the time with the provided drivers, a few days later i got the error "Power Surge on Hub Port".

so i disconnected the device but my pc randomly gets stuck on the bios screen and the mouse freezes randomly for 5 secs or so, in other cases mouse is freezes until i have to restart the PC.

Is my motherboard damaged? any solutions?

Here is my pc specs:
-Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
-Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.07GHz
-RAM 12.0GB Triple-Channel DDR3 @ 539MHz (7-7-7-20)
-Motherboard Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. X58-USB3 (Socket 1366)
-Graphics 1024MB NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 (Gigabyte)


A:after installing Front Panel USB 3.0 Port Hub Motherboard failing?

It is possible that your PSU (Power Supply Unit) could not handle the Hub, hence, "Power Surge".

I guess my video card is crashing. Its old and I play COD4 for hours sometimes. It started crashing today, usually by performing anything video intense, like playing a video file.

Screen flickers and gets stuck for a second. Last few times PC got locked and didn't respond so I had to restart.

Only looking for a quick fix, since I plan on ordering my new system in a month.

There is an 8400GS for $12.99 at Microcenter, probably just pick that up tomorrow, for the mean time.

Any other suggestions?

A:GPU card failing?

Happens to me too at the randomest times. Sad thing is it happened even when the GPU was brand new. Nvidia is losing quality. Quick fix? maybe vacuum your GPU's fan if it has one, clean it of any dust.

I have posted on this forum a lot about my computer randomly freezing. Well it seems that my computer has been fine, has been left on over night everything works. When I go to open up Diablo or Guild Wars it will freeze right away or maybe somewhere later down the line. Is there a way I can test to see if the games are stressing it too much or if it's failing

After installing an EVGA E-GeFroce 2 PCI Video card, the computer won't show the motherboard load screen or the screen that show the ram being loaded, hence, I cannot access the bios. Before I installed the video card I was using the on board video and it worked fine. Is they any way to get this to work without having to reset the CMOS by moving the jumper on the MOBO??

I'm running WinXP Home, 1 gig ram, and I do have a pinnacle Pro-One card installed.

I'd start by removing the card and see if the system returns to normal operation.

I am trying to play Sleeping Dogs in high graphics, i have previously been able to do this, and now when i play in high graphics i get this: see image below:

When i lower to medium graphics it works fine. I have played on high before.

I have 2 Nvidia GTX 560Ti in SLI.

Is there a way to see if one of my cards is failing?

A:How can i tell my graphics card is failing?

Is your graphics card driver up to date? If so, take 1 card out and fire up the game. Turn the settings wide open, and play a little bit, taking note of any performance issues. Take that card out and install the other card and repeat. If both seem to run the game at max settings, you should be ok. Mind you, it's not a scientific test, but if a card is going out, that will probably let you know. Check for a driver update first.

My sound card will occasionally have problems with cracking and playing audio at about half speed, as if it is lagging when audio is played through the speakers. I tried to use the headphones instead, getting the error "error creating directsound buffer 88780096" while trying to play music through Winamp. I have found that if I reset the directsound buffer through services.msc or reset my PC, the audio goes back to normal before eventually having problems again. Is there a more permanent fix?

My sound is an integrated Realtek ALC888S Audio card, which came in my HP Pavilion 5310y slimline.

Additionally, I've found my PC is running relatively slowly (even after hard drive cleaning and many, virus scans with AVG/Malwarebyes/Spybot). The integrated audio failing is worrying me that the motherboard might have some sort of problem, or may be failing due to age. Should I be worried about this? I appreciate the help.

A:how to tell which video card is failing

As I understand the situation and presuming that this is the one display using the two 7970 cards linked by the crossfire bridge, if you open the AMD catalyst control centre and if available click to uncheck as explained below
To disable Crossfire right-click your desktop and select "Catalyst Control Center". On the upper-left click "Graphics", then "CrossfireX". In the main area of the window, uncheck the "Enable Crossfire" option. Click "OK" to accept the changes and close the Control Center.
I think that will then switch to the primary card only.
In view of the difference in the time element - one hour to seconds - I have a doubt that it is the cards
When you reply with the result of disabling crossfire we can explore other possible causes.
I presume the two HDD - not the SSD the 500 MB are GB not that this of course has any relevance to the problem
Were it to be me I would start with a driver rollback on the graphics and I would test temps and voltages
Which OS please if it is 8/8.1 are driver updates via Microsoft - Windows updates - if so I would most certainly examine driver dates and versions.
When it crashes does it produce a dump file, if so send me a zipped copy of the minidump and I will analyse it for you

A:Possible failing video card

So the driver update didn't fix anything, but I narrowed down the cause of the glitch. If I'm in spectator mode and I fly outside the walls of the map at all, it gives me that screen. It's never done that before, but I'm not sure it's a hardware failure because the trigger is so specific. But if this still sounds like a failure please let me know. I don't know all that much about hardware beyond what each part is for.

Hi, I've recently had a strange problem with my custom built computer. When playing a graphics intensive game such as Age of Conan or Crysis, after an indiscriminate amount of time in the game my monitor will go black. However the case lights and fans will still run. I can restart the system manually, I have replaced my RAM several times, I believe the problem lies with my EVGA 8800 which runs at 60 degrees ALL THE TIME I believe this may have damaged the VRAM. I already have watercooling on my Quad core CPU (and hope to extend it to my video card) but is it too late for that is it time for a replacement?

I got it in my new computer (4Core Q6600 2.4ghz 4gb Ram and 500 watt PSU) but in every game I play all the textures Randomize, It has also sometimes happend in iTunes, Like for example I'm playing FC2 All of a sudden the ground becomes a mans face, and the walls become the textures of a gun Or something else. I have also once had the floor on a game (Half life 2) become the album cover for "Steal this album" While running iTunes and the game at the same time.

Just to say, It happens in every game and I have re-installed them all, Please help as I've spent weeks fixing problem after problem only to have this arrise.

I have absolutely no idea what is wrong with my graphics this Is card my sign a of failing? pc The main problem first started a couple days ago where my pc hung completely by that I mean the audio loops and I cannot do anything besides power it off forcefully I hard booted it back up and and it acted fine until the next day where it did the same thing but it freed itself however my screen was black I hard rebooted and acted fine again I booted it up for the first time today and about minutes after it had booted it did it again except I could see no black screen and move my mouse and the audio distorted every couple of seconds however I could not bring up the task manager or anything I have tested for ram issues and there are none I did a clean reinstall of my Nvidia drivers and no fix My windows is up to date I also checked for viruses with both Norton uninstalled after checking and Kaspersky what i'm now running which showed no issues Here are the computer specs Intel core i k Onboard surround EVGA Nvidia GTX ti factory overclocked Asus P Z -V LK Z liquid cooled Windows - bit gigs DDR ram Anybody have any ideas Is this a sign of my graphics card failing? My guess is my graphics card is failing but that doesn't explain the audio distortions If it helps any the first time this issue happened I checked the windows event viewer and one of the errors was nvlddmkm could not found which is a nvidia driver file This had me think to reinstall the driver and by reinstall I just ran the most up to date driver installer and checked the clean install box The error is no longer being shown after doing that but it hasn't fixed the issue

Hey bartrulz! Welcome to sevenforums!

Did u get any BSOD? Because, I don't think that this is issue of your graphic card. Also, can you tell how did you uninstall and installed your old Nvidia drivers? did you use driversweeper to removed all the parts of your old driver and then install the new ones?

It seems that when I turn on my computer or wake it up from a sleep the image on the screen is vibrating / quivering ever so slightly. However after a minute the image has completely stabilized.

My monitor is a xerox XA7 lcd display which is now 7 years old. My graphics card is a secondhand nVidia GeForce 8600 GT.

What's interesting is that I have an LED TV hooked up to the HDMI out on the graphics card and the image on the TV is always perfect.

So is it my xerox monitor that is failing? Or could it be that just the DVI on the graphics card is failing and the HDMI is fine?

Thanks for your expertise!

A:Either my monitor or graphics card is failing... but which is it?

Can you borrow a friends monitor and test it with your card? Also make and un-make the connections to the card to the monitor to clean and refresh their connections and report back.

Whenever I run a Game, I get regular freezing followed by a black screen or a screen that says "Frequency Out of Range. Try Other Resolutions." Since I can still hear the audio from the game I assume this is a graphics card issue. I updated the drivers for both the graphics card and the motherboard with no result. I'm running on Windows XP Home. The Graphics card is an ATI Radeon X1650 Pro.

You could have a bad video card. Also possible that it is overheating. Is it clean and the fan working well? Try reseating it also. Do you have a good PS?

A:How can I prevent my video card from failing?

GPU's either fail or they don't. You can't do anything about a faulty GPU.
The only thing I would say about gaming on a laptop is to keep it cool as they can run very hot. Maybe invest in one of those laptop coolers which you can sit them in.
Also install MSI afterburner ( just google it) to keep an eye on temperatures. You can even turn the GPU fan up with it to keep it cool.

A:BSOD due to video card failing?

If you had sudden shutdowns, then you have file system damage. Be sure to run chkdsk /f to repair them.

This problem usually occurs after a time when heat is involved. Have you checked that the cooling is optimal, no dust, all fans running as they should?

Check with the computer or card manufacturer's site for the most recent driver.

What is the error message?> Always "IRQL..."?

The small dump file does not appear to contain useful information.

A:Power Supply Failing Or Video Card?

This does sound like it could be a failing power supply, you do have a budget brand one with a fairly low output. I wouldn't have thought that the 6200 would need a big PSU but it might be worth looking to upgrade to around 350 or 400W. It is always good to have extra headroom in your power supply because then you do not risk overloading it.

Others may have different suggestions, but I have personally used an Enermax Liberty 400W in the past and it was a good unit.

Hi Ken, Look aon the top back of the graphics card for a switch.  See the below image. You should have received a pamphlet in the box describing the use of the switch (legacy mode or UEFI mode).  If your PC has a version 8 HP BIOS then disable secure boot if set. If your PC is not at a version 8 BIOS level then the switch should be in legacy position.  The pamphlet should describe the use of the switch.

A:My graphics card driver keeps failing (GeForce 9500GT)

What you are experiencing is a TDR event (Timeout Detection & Recovery). There are many causes of these events, mostly hardware related. Please read my checklist below and see if you can diagnose your particular cause.

A couple of things jump out immediately. Your specs say you have 5GB of RAM, an odd number. That suggests that you added some RAM at some point. Mismatched or failing RAM modules can cause TDRs. You might want to test those sticks one at a time in Slot 1 before anything else. RAM problems can explain some of your other issues too.

Looking at some of your other posts I see you are running dual monitors also. This could be exposing a defect in your 9500GT that is triggering the TDRs. You should test with only one monitor attached to see if this is the case.

You are running lots of stuff on that box, so I would be as deliberate as possible in doing the diagnostic work.

"Display driver xxxxx stopped responding and was recovered"

Timeout Detection & Recovery (TDR) = "Display Driver Stopped Responding and was Recovered" is a useful feature that started in Vista and is also in W7 that allows the OS to try and recover from a video timeout so that the system does not crash to a bluescreen. Symptoms included a screen flash with the TDR message appearing one or more times or the screen blinking out to black. If the system cannot recover it will crash (Stop Error 116 typical). The issue is that the video card is not responding as expected. The solution is in the: why?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to TDR errors. But the problem is usually found in the local environment (your computer). Finding the cause is a matter of checking every possible cause and uncovering the culprit through a simple process of elimination. By methodically running down a checklist of diagnostic procedures you should be able to find the cause and can correct it.

There are numerous reports of hardware solutions to TDR's. The most common are:
Poor Cooling
Problems with the power supply
Overclocking Issues
Bad System memory or incorrect memory timings
Defective PC Components

The order you do the diagnostics is not all that important. My personal strategy is to do the cheap & easy stuff first, the cheap & harder stuff next, and then the stuff that costs last. But whatever order you do it in you need to check or confirm the following:

Poorly written software and games will cause TDRs. But if this were the case it would affect lots of people, not just a few. Check the game's website & forums for patches and tips.
See if other people in the forums are having the same problem and if they were able to solve it and how.
You could also be asking too much of your video card. Check to see if your video card is tested and recommended for the game/program. Test the game at reduced settings.

It helps if you can isolate the actions that trigger the TDR. Most often it will be an application using 3D graphics. But if the incidents occur constantly it would point more towards defective hardware. If it happens more specifically (just when running Game X) it points towards overheating, settings, software, or driver issues.

You need to eliminate the possibility that your computer has a global problem. You can use a program like Prime95 to stress test your system.
You can run the "Stress Test" for a few hours or overnight. This will not tell you what the problem is, but it is helpful to uncover any issues your system has with instability and cooling.

Running a video intensive game for hours can generate some serious heat and overheating will cause video errors. You can check your temps by looking at your BIOS readings or use a free program like Speedfan SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer .

I really need help here. I've got a GeForce GTX 460 SSC installed, but when I use Dxdag the only information I got is the name of the video card. No drivers (version or anything). I've installed the lastest divers for my video card, so it shouldn't happened.

I don't know if it's related, but since I've noticed that, some games doesn't work correctly (problems with my Xbox 360 controler), the buttons respond awkwardly.

Anyone out there could help me? Thanx!

A:Dxdiag ONLY show the name of the video card

maybe directx has gotten a little screwy. Do you get the same problem when you launch the 64 bit version?

The first thing I would do is check the system files.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

barring any results from that I might suggest running the driver verifier.
That can be a bit of a process at times though.

i cant install any drivers for my 8800 gt card
when i first put windows 7 it showed about 8 excamation mark in my device manager
it says like this:
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

now i got it to show only one
but, whenever i tried to install driver for my card its says i dont have that hardware..

any solutions?

Edit: apparently i dont have any graphic driver installed, i dont know how can i see someting on my monitor

A:Windows 7 doesnt show my 8800 gt card

Use Driver Sweeper to remove the native driver that Windows installed from Safe Mode...not the VGA driver, then install the driver downloaded directly from Nvidia.

Hi, I hope you can help me. I recently tried to run some games on my laptop and keep getting black screens (e.g. running Aion I get to login screen but it's black though I can see and move cursor and hear music).

When I run dxdiag it only shows the Intel HD graphics. But in my device manager I also see a NVIDIA Geforce 310M. I'm wondering if my laptop is set up right, but am not sure what to check?

I attach my dxdiag. When trying to update drivers the system says both are up to date. I did try a new driver from nvidia but it crashed my laptop and I had to restore the old ones back. In device manager the 310M driver is dated 10/02/2010 version:

Any assistance you can offer would be really appreciated and I'm happy to give more info if needed.

A:dxdiag does not show nvidia 310m gfx card

You seem to have Optimus (switchable) graphics.

I have no personal experience with them, but I imagine that you may need to get custom drivers directly from your laptop's manufacturer.

Hi, I have an HP dv5215 laptop. My mom tried to reformat it because it crashed about a month ago. It is restored, but the wireless internet doesn't work. When I press the button for wireless the light doesn't come on. I reinstalled the driver, and i already checked that it is enabled in BIOS. The wireless assistant says it is disabled in the devise manager but when I go there I don't see the wireless card. Is it called something funny that I just don't recognize or is there a way to make it show up?

The graphics card is ATi Radeon HD2400 Pro and uses the memory/hypermemory on mother board to apparently go upto 1 gig, how do i get the system to show me the graphics card memory so i can check how much memory it has assigned to it, with the memory on the card and off the board/hypermemory combined? I dont even know how much is on the card let alone how much its taking from the m/b. I know i have 4gb on my m/b but it only shows as 2.87gb under system details (m/b).

A:Solved: SD Card will not show stored files

If you have been using the SD card for regular back ups it might be worn out, it is not the best thing to use for back ups as the repeated read write cycles will wear it out far quicker than an external hard drive which is the best thing to use.

Try ejecting the card, then take it out of the PC, reboot the system and put it back into the reader. If it still won't show any files then it has probably failed. As you have the files on your PC you have nothing to loose from running a format on it which might get it working again.

I'm Suzy, I dont know much bout PC, soft or hardware. Recently I just bought Creative Xtreem Audio. However, I discovered that the old sound card is intergrated w the ATI motherboard.

Can you pull it out? Or it's onboard? If so, go in BIOS and disable it, or there may be a jumper on the board to do so.

I'm running windows 2000 server with SP2 on a Compaq Proliant 1600 with an embedded NIC. I noticed that the ethernet adapter does not show up in the My network places properties. I have tried to get it back with tweekUI, Removing it from Device manager and reinstalling it, and ran an in-place upgrade. I have also disable the embedded NIC and tried adding a new PCI ethernet adapter, it too fails to show up. I can see the card in the command line. I have tried the netsh command to tie an IP address to the adapter and made it persistant, but the changes are lost on mandatory reboot. In order to keep the server up and running I have made it a DHCP client so I can use the machine. All comments are welcome on this one.

First off, I like to have "view hidden folders and drives" checked when using Windows 10 --just a preference. And certainly when I uncheck that, this problem goes away, but the question still stands: Why, when I insert a 32Gb SDHC card, formatted as FAT32, does it show up in File Explorer as four (4) separate drives? One is labeled, usable, and has the expected capacity. The other three are of unknown format and zero space. A minor bug, no?

A:Why does a single SDHC card show up as 4 separate drives?

Oh, sorry, dumb question. I was using a Kingston card reader to read my SDHC card. The reader has four slots for various sizes of memory cards. The extra three hidden drives represent the empty three slots. So if there is any bug, it's in my brain.

Hi; I am an author and print index cards with data on how people can get my book that I distribute on the street in my village. I can set a margin of 0" on all four corners of word 2007 on the index card image of the word processor. The problem is with print preview, the right border is missing the ending text on landscape view. It shows headers and footers when I have a margin of 1/2 inch on all corners. Is there something I have to set on word options with the advanced tab (maybe layout options?) so the data can print near the edges of the index cards? Whatever shows on print preview shows on the printed index card. I have an HP 4360 printer. I have vista 32 bit.

A:Print preview does not show whole index card text

Try 'View' mode, then tick 'ruler' option, then drag the 'first line indent' and the 'hanging indent' to the page edges. This does make the margins 0" but I can't prove if it will print with a similar effect. Hope this helps.

Hi to all,
I recently bought a Scan internal card reader, installed it, my PC recognized it, installed the drivers automatically, also a windows update was available for the card, installed everything & seems to work fine. The reader recognizes all the cards i give it including the USB, however I cannot manage to see the usual removable drives an internal card reader usually displays when it is attached to the PC.

The drive only appears when a card is inserted, is this normal?

Thanks for your help..

A:Solved: Internal Card reader works but does not show drives...

That's not 100% normal, but that's even better than the usual 4 drives hanging around for no reason in the Computer window... I think so, at least. If the reader works, don't worry about it.

I have a friend's laptop (Toshiba Satellite L645D-S4040) that she recently got and I can't get the wifi on this thing to work. The built-in wifi card shows fine in Device Manager, but, if I attempt to use it in a network, I get a vague error about driver issues. She got a USB wifi adapter, as well, and the same thing is happening with it. I've installed the drivers from the Toshiba website and made sure they were up to date with Windows for the built-in card and used the CD that came with the on networks wifi adapter to install that driver. Neither adapter shows up in ipconfig /all, either.

Might anyone know where to go next? I could reinstall Windows, but I fear there's something simpler I'm missing.

Recently, I got a message telling me to backup immediately because my hard drive was failing. I pulled out the portable hard drive to do a backup only to be rejected by windows backup at 57%.
The only conclusion I can reach is that the damaged portion of my hard drive is the bit that deals with copying files, because I've tried a manual backup too.
This really freaks me out because I have done some important work in the last month since my last backup that I do not want to lose.

My motherboard is a gigabyte 71xe4 and has never caused me any problems with my old gfx card (voodoo3 pci). However i just bought a geforce2 64mb mx400 AGP card and now my pc won't start. I have ensured the card is in the slot correctly and have removed the voodoo. When i switch on i just get the 2-1 beeps (2 quick beeps followed shortly after by another). I assume the pc is believing there to not be a gfx card so how do i solve this?

I am on the original BIOS (there is a prob with win 98 dos mode where the fan stops, there is an update to solve it but i never use dos so i dont see the point in risking my bios on an unnessecary update), will i have to finally update my bios to get it to work? Or is there some other way?

i have a abit ic7 motherboard that supports agp video cards.i am looking to upgrade my video cards from a nvidia geforce 5700 ultra, but dont know whether to upgrade my motherboard to a pci express, or just put more money into a better agp video card.

A:motherboard or video card?

Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

What CPU do you have now on the IC7?
You'd be spending out for 3 major componants,
3. 1x video card/ 2x video cards.

If you want to be able to upgrade with current technology,
Sli/pci-e and have the funds for it, then by means go for it.
I have an IC7-G with a 6800 gt oc and love it.
I believe nVidia came out with a 7800 thats agp 8x!
You may want to consider it too!
