Question about PC Desktops

My computer frequently drops out of windowa and the latency many times is much higher than it should be. Sometimes close to 10300 ms. I believe that this happens when companies are doing upgrades to their programs that I have in my computer. What can I do to stop these problems from occuring.

Don´t let that other companies upgrade programs from you computer. You can do this by blocking them. Go to control panel, go to firewall and do what you need in there.

Ram upgrades


This is a tip explaining exactly what you should keep in mind when you want to upgrade your ram modules in your Desktop computer. This will also act as a guide which will give you step by step instructions on how to replace the ram module.

Firstly, before we start buying, we need to be sure that the upgraded ram modules are compatible with your motherboard. Here are a couple of tips you need to keep in mind.



Frequency:

You need to have a look at the frequency of the ram you are using at the moment, as well as the supported frequency of your motherboard. If your motherboard is compatible with a higher ram frequency than your current ram, you can use the frequency which the motherboard stated as maximum for optimum performance. Remember, if yu want to add ram modules, all ram will be downgraded to the ram with the lowest frequency.

Ram model:

You need to know if you are using DDR, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3 ram, some motherboards supports both DDR2 and DDR3. If your motherboard does not support a certain model, it will not fit in the slot on the motherboard, hence, it will be useless. Thus, you need to have a look at the ram model supported by your motherboard.

Latency:

Lastly, you need to have a look at the latency of the ram. The lower the latency, the better the performance.

After you have bought the new upgraded ram modules, we can install them. The following steps will guide you through the installation process.

Step 1

Shut down your computer and unplug all cables. Also, you need to take of the side panel of your computer. Remember to stay grounded at all times when you start working with the hardware of your computer.

Step 2

The second step will be to either take out the current ram modules to upgrade them, or insert the new ram modules into the other available ram slots on the motherboard. Remember to keep yourself grounded at all times while touching the any of the computer hardware. Also, handle the ram at the length end at all times, not at the width end. There will be 2 small hinges on both sides at the base of each ram modules end. You need to pivot the outwards before the ram module can be removed or inserted.

Step 3

The last step will be to screw back the side panel after you have inserted the ram modules(Be sure that you remember to clip back the hinges to ensure that the ram module is places in correctly. Never force the module, line up the ram module with the slot on the motherboard.) Also, plug back all cables into the Computer case, and enjoy your handwork.

I looking for a pcb boad for hd western digital


That would be on another WD2500JB Caviar harddrive

Either that, or start looking on the internet posting -
WD2500JB PCB Board, and see what search hits come up.

Here,.....let me try.............

http://www.hdd-parts.com/18100096.html

Before you replace it, let me ask........
1) Was it in a Desktop PC?

2) Was it in an external harddrive?

External harddrive?
Then suggest you obtain a 3.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3883498&CatId=2780

In an external harddrive there is a small interface circuit board.

The Harddrive plugs into the small interface circuit board, and the USB cable is attached to the small interface circuit board.

It is this small interface circuit board that usually goes bad.

The external enclosure is just like the case of the external harddrive.
Has a USB cable going to a small interface circuit board, and the harddrive plugs into it.

Computer wont turn back on after power outage


Power surges are like Radiation poisoning: the effects are cumulative. You need to have it on a Surge Protector (not just a power strip with an over-amp cutout,) that is AT LEAST 1200 Joules. Much higher if you live in a lighting-prone area, or are subject to frequent power-outages. Your Power Supply Unit appears to be on the edge of failing. I suggest you get it replaced IMMEDIATELY. A PSU with issues such as yours have been known to damage one or more of the other components inside your PC when it finally dies.....like the Hard drive, or a Memory module...even the CPU.

Ram upgrade capability


Simply, yes you can. just open the case and put in the new boards. you can buy higher spec. memory(as long as the pins are the same number)
I.E. ddr-sdram boards will fit and as long as the speed is the same (132.8 Mhz) or higher.
I changed from 133Mhz to 333Mhz and the performance was much improved.
The PC3200 is the important bit, should be the same.
after you change the memory ,try running disc clean up in "start, all programs, accessories, disc clean up" this will also speed things up as well as de-fragmennting your drive(s)

Microsoft office home and student 2007 25 digit key


Hello,

When you buy a new computer, quite frequently it will come with a trial version of MS Office installed. To get the 25-digit product key, you would need to buy the full version from microsoft.com or in any software store.

As a free alternative: OpenOffice is a free application which is 100% compatible with all MS Office applications. You can download this for free from www.openoffice.org.

Thanks for using the FixYa forums!
