Does your HDD makes a shacking noise when it is running or when you are trying to read or write ont he HDD? if so then you may want to look at checking the HDD for internal damages and if not, you may want to update your MOBO's BIOS.

if you have other questiosn about this issue just lemme know...

Blown or Poofed CAPS next to processor. PC will not load WinXP...get an IRQ_LESS... Worth replacing CAPS? Or get another MOBO, if so, where? Thanks


Hi,

Replacing the caps is totally up to you depending on whether you like the motherboard and want to keep it. You can pick up replacement caps for next to nothing and they are fairly easy to solder in.
If you want a new or second hand motherboard then you should be able to pick on up from a reputable computer store, eBay or a repair store.

Regards.

I have HP 305W. When turns on the power, it stops within 5 scnds


sounds like your motherboard lost a control chip. that makes the power supply cycle off, when m/b doesn't send correct signals to continue boot.

Will cloned Hard drive work with new MoBo and CPU


No, it's not true, but you will need to buy Partition Magic to clone the smaller drive onto the larger one.

The new MoBo and CPU might give you more trouble though. All of the windows drivers for the old MoBo will be confused when they see all new hardware. In the olden (WinNT) days, this rarely worked. Now in the WinXP SP3/Vista days, you'll probably be just fine.
