Question about Evga GeForce FX 5500 DDR, Graphic Card

1 Answer

It worked in the past, but now it doesn't work at all...

Here is how it started.. My computer was full of dust, and I decided to clean it out. So, I took the shell off my hp pavilion a635w and cleaned it out with that electronic cleaner stuff...as soon as I plugged the monitor connection to the graphics card, it only said entering power saving mode.. BUT>> when I plugged it into the regular plug, it worked but it was in VERY low detail... When I used it before, it worked fine... I tried to fix it, and no one seems to have a solution to it... I have no idea what's going on... It can't be virus', and I tried to reinstall it... but it wouldn't work.. Any one have any solutions!!!???

    I think my graphic card is glitched, and it just wont work anymore. Really, what started all of this was the fact that this graphics card (a e-GeForce FX 5500 256 MB) was too low for what i had on my computer... If there are anymore solutions, please feel free to type it. I don't think it has anything to do with the connection because i tried that.... :(

Pls make sure that your graphics card is well inserted to the slot. check other parts also like ram for loose connections. you can also clean them by removing them and cleaning the metal pins with a pencil eraser, just be sure to take note of the gap when you insert them back to the slot.

Emachines t5212 overheat message then shuts down


Three causes of ovheating:
1) Dust. Dust inside the computer, Dust around the vents, fans, cpu and heat sink. Take a can of compressed air and clean the dust out of the computer.

2) A Fan not working. Make sure the fan inside the Power Supply where you plug the power cord in works. Also there is a fan that sits on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. Make sure it works. Normally the system will give you an error message if the fan is not working.

3) Thermal Paste - The Thermal Paste around the cpu and heat sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink.

My computer shuts down while browsing the internet. Both fans I see are working. What could it be?


Just because the fans are working does not mean they are blowing cool air properly. First undo the case power down and ground yourself by touching the case before you enter with your hands inside. Look and see if the block and fan are full of dust. Computers tend to shut down especially the newer ones to keep your CPU and board protected from over heating.
This may be all it is clean out the debris and place some new heat sync paste purchase at Radio Shack or Amazon.com or a local computer shop they should have some in a tube. Place the heat sync on top of the CPU I place about a dime size in the middle of the CPU top and then place the cooling block back down and tighten or fasten it back down again. Clean it good then try this to see if this works.

try swapping the speakers around if the problem still persists either the speaker is faulty or
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
or you might have to clean the dust from your computer dust causes static which causes your computer to overheat and all sorts of problems
be sure to wear an anti static earth strap before touching anything inside your computer try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the CPU central processing unit and your SOUND CARD dust causes static to build up in a computer causing it to overheat any many other problems

My fan keeps speeding up , then it slow downs what causes this? an how can I fix this?


which fan is doing this? Mostly likely it is caused by dust or overheating. Use a can of compressed air found at any electronics store to clean the dust out from inside the computer. If that doesn't solve the problem I would next try replacing the fan.
thank you,

How do i clean the filter on my vp6325 projector?


If you have a jet air - compressor or blower- use it to clear the filter of the trapped dust within the filter. Once the filter is clean the flow of air to the lamp unit will be improved and so give you longer life on the lamp. A tiny bristle type brush can be used-- the brush of your electric shaver.
