MOBO carshes I've recently installed this trying to increase my speed without too much cost but seem to have gone backwards. Not only does it crash regularly but it also hangs or slows down even though nothing is evdently working in the background. Can't even thing of using it for video editing etc I tried to update the BIOS but it told me I had a more recent one installed than what I downloaded from the website. Any ideas?

    The most recent installation is a WinTV card and software but really it's been a problem from the start. I have 2 SATA drives. 3 IDE drives and 1 burner also IDE. Initially I also installed 1 PCI Express USB card and ! PCI Express LAN card but I removed the latter two to see if things improved. They didn't. I have 2 GB of Ram but all this worked better on my older Mobo which was also an Asus but more basic.

    Wow. You got a lot of drives. But that shouldn't be a problem unless one of the drives are having trouble. If a drive is having a bad sector, overall PC would slow down. Also, if the CD/DVD drive is working, there might be a major slowndown. So remove any DVD/CD inside the drive. About your Disk drives, try a more basic setup by removing other drives and test the system with just one drive if the performance is well. If it is, add the others one by one. Scandisk the disk which massively slowed down the computer. You may also want to check for trojans, spyware and adwares that may eat up a lot of your resources.

Hi there, I've recently had some problems with my polo, when I accelerate the revs of the car go up but the speed doesn't increase at all, and then after a couple of seconds the speed increases quite...

Hi,most likely your clutch is worn or got oil on the surface of it.Try to start to go with the handbrake on:if the engine stops as you release the clutch it is OK,if the engine keeps running (let say until the clutch's 90% release) its gone...Probably you can smell a kind of "sweetish" smell also..

The windshield wipers on my 1994 S 300 mercedes diesel work intermittently then quit and start up again seems like they are ready to crash for good. how do i repair so they work when needed?

1) It is normal for the wipers, in rain sensor mode, to cycle once upon startup.

2) In rain sensor mode, the wipers should be intermittent with the cycles increasing as the volume of moisture increases on the windshield. The speed will increase until it reaches the continuous slow speed of position 2 on the switch. It will not increase to the fastest speed which is position 3 on the switch. You have to go to the fastest speed by manually rotating the switch to postion 3. Doesn't seem like a design flaw to me.

Overclocking aopenax4b-533 mobo

In some motherboards, you can increase the multiplier, which will increase your processor speed.(Briefly, Processor Speed = FSB x Multiplier) You can also increase the chipset, memory, and CPU voltage, which will sometimes allow you to have a higher FSB. There are other settings such as PCI Bus and AGP Bus, you generally don't want to touch those, either they might put risk to your PC, or that they won't make much difference in performance. Be careful when you overclock because you can really damage your computer that way.

Overclock fan speed question

The amount that you can overclock you're video card differes for each individual card. The limiting factors are temperatures and stability. If games start crashing, etc you should back off the overclocking. Also keep in mind the temperature of the card. Increasing fan speeds will lower the temperatures of the card. Increasing the fan speed (as long as you don't go beyond 100%) will not damage the card... It will be louder though. For the 9800gt, the maximum temperature before damage is 105 degrees C. Try to keep the temperatures at 80 or below optimally. Increasing the fan speed is the best way to accomplish this.
