    also considering upgrading my mother board, does any body know where i may be able to download a manual for a mother board?

  • djtrevb Sep 09, 2008

    i have a creative sound blaster and the problem only accurs when i record, i tried removing the sound card but the problem still occurs, how ever if i put a cd in my disc drive and rip it, it sounds fine!!! as for the mother board, i have been given a duel core freebie so if any one could tell me where i may be able to down load a free manual for a ATX V2.x that would be great, even better if some body can solve my sound problem ;-)

If the trouble is only input/output of audio signals, you may consider purchasing a sound-card instead of a motherboard. A good sound card will come within 50US$ and I'd recommend Creative Audigy or Soundblaster (5.1Channel or 7.1channel) cards for a professional like you.

There is no display in monitor. I replace ram even no display, sometime its gives beep sound.Plz is there any solution of this promblem

when the computer is beeping when started, and you get no picture on the monitor, it is usually because your graphics card has stopped working. you can check and see if the card has become loose, first shut down your computer, unplug it, and please wait about 5 seconds before touching anything inside. your graphics card in the computer is the one that the monitor plugs into. check to make sure it is pushed tightly into the mother board. if the card is pushed all of the way in, and it is still a problem after plugging in your computer, and turning it back on, then the card is probably defective. Some computers have the graphics built into the mother board, and therefore do not have a graphics card, if this is your case, you can purchase a new graphics card and carefully install it into your computer and plug your monitor into it.Now you will not be using the built in graphics any more, and this should solve your problems. when doing any work on your computer, please make sure it has been shut down and unplugged. Most peeple who work on computers will have a spare graphics card kicking around somewhere, ask someone if they have one you could try in your computer, or go online to a local classifieds site and see if anyone will sell you a used one if you do not want to purchase a new one. You should have no problem at all finding a used graphics card/ video card. If problem still ocurs, or if it is easier for you, borrow a monitor from someone and try a different monitor first, this may be the problem, but not very likely.
Hope this helped !

My hp pavilion m7170n keeps shutting off randomly, is this a power supply problem?

You are going to have to test several things when trying to diagnose the problem.

1) It could be *********** Board. Most computer shops will have a test cpu or each particular motherboard cpu style, this allows them to test your CPU and Mother Board.

2) Yes, It could be your power supply. Power supplies do go out randomly, normally a common problem is people forget to upgrade the power supply when they upgrade, say, a video card. Depending on the size of the power consumption of the new hardware the person would need to upgrade the power supply, other wise they end up having the same problem.

3) Have you upgraded your RAM lately? If so then double check to be sure *********** Board can handle it, otherwise it will reset like it is.

Well I hope this helps.

I have a acer aspire T180 desktop , on vista , and it dosent start up , when I go to the system recovery options , it says if you dont see your operating system listed , click drivers toload drivers for...

Most times when you see this message it means your computer can not see you hard drive when booting. I am having same problem and i my case is mo mother board has issues with SATA ports. You can try to replace hard drive cable and also try testing it in another computer. other than mother board this can be also hard drive it self. Test in another pc to determine is it or not. If no other pc by a docking station or hard drive enclosure and use it as usb external drive and see can you access can use any computer even your friends. Hope this helps.

Pc starts and runs but wont boot up monitor shows no signal

1) When you turn on the computer, watch and listen for:

a) power supply fan, (power is on)
b) chassis lights (power is on)
c) ticking sound during memory test
(the BIOS POST is running)

d) beeps or rhythmical error codes
(POST failed, bad CPU, CHIP set, memory or video)

e) Monitor either comes on, displays garbled video,
displays a No Sync or No Signal message...

No depending on how far it gets:

Check power supply, cables etc.
Check video cable.
Check monitor with a different PC

Now unplug the power cord, with the computer still
on, this will help drain any internal capacitors.
Wait 5 minutes, then shut off the switches,
and open up the box. try the following,
one at a time:

2) Remove all I/O cards except the video card,
and don't plug them back in until the problem
is fixed. Unplug all the ribbon cables from
the mother board as well:

Hard drives, CD drive, floppies etc.

Make sure you make notes about how to plug it
back in, and cable orientation !!!

0) Re-seat all power cables: Red, Black Yellow harnesses.

1) Unplug and re-seat the video card

2) Similarly, re-seat all memory SIM/DIM modules,

3) Re-seat the CPU

4) Replace the video card

5) Replace memory, CPU or whole mother board,

Plug the good parts back in one at a time,
and test the machine.

Save for the power supply, there really is NO way to test
and isolate a bad module except by swapping/ trial and error
because of inter-dependencies.

For example a bad I/O card, any I/O card, can short circuit
the I/O bus, causing all other plug-in cards to stop working,
or even the main mother-board to freeze during the POST.

A bad power supply ditto.

A bad memory chip ... ditto.

The type of electronic instruments required to actually
test modern computers running at Gigahertz speed cost
hundreds of thousands of dollars, some cost millions, and
are only available to hi end manufacturers

Even the power supply will not power up for a voltage check
if the mother board is bad, although you can use a jumper
on the green wire to ground to force it on, when you unplug
the power connector from the mother-board, if you are brave.

Computer shops carry a lot of spare parts, and their service
department has gutted computers rigged up as test jigs.

They trouble shoot your system by either plugging your
stuff into their jigs, one at a time, or by plugging known
good components into your computer until the problem
is fixed.

This if of course possibly dangerous, since one bad part
can also fry other good parts that plug into it, or that it
plugs into. The compute shops, of course charge you
enough to make up for this.

If a computer is partially operable, it is also possible to
run software diagnostics.

If not, swap and pray is the only way.

Hope this helps

Mother Board upgrades

Well hello there i have read your problem and i really think you shouldn't have to waste time and money all you have to do is enter your motherboards model into a search engine on the net and to that add drivers update. e.g. "HP Pavilion a1720n driver update" and the search engine will bring up a list of links that will help you download the latest drivers without any problems if that does not work then try going to the shop you bought it and ask them to upgrade what ever driver that is giving you problems.
