    thx yeah that help me out. really don't know what i have 32 or 64 bit but i will look at the power supply and work from that might just get a new power supply as well. as for now m/board works ok but does turn on, on its own when i turn it off after about 3 hours of being off. then kicks on and off till i unplug it and restart it and kicks off again have to do this a few times before it turns on for good or off till again it turns on on its own.wierd why does that happen? other then that it works great for now think power is going out as well.might explain the kicking on and off. thanks again Melissa.

You can put mostly any M/board in most cases the main problem will be power supply. A lot of the latest M/boards now need different power plug fittings and your power supply may not have them
(Do a careful check)
Unless you use a 64 bit operating system its useless getting that much RAM as 32 bit O/S can only use 3.35Gb of RAM

How do i go do a factory restore


You will need to get a Windows installation CD for the version of windows designed for your computer first.

Second you can download all your drivers for your motherboard before you format your hard drive and install windows.

Acer Aspire 150 - bought new 18 months ago and have been told that the motherboard has gone. Is this reasonable and has anyone else had a similar probelm and if so what did you do about it?


Is this reasonable? - no, but possible, yes. I have seen plenty of electronics go bad just a week or two past the warranty, including computers. Unfortunately, about all you can do about it is 1) get a new motherboard installed, or 2) get a new computer and this time buy the extended warranty. By the way, whoever installs your motherboard should be able to easily get your documents/files from the hard drive. You will need to reinstall Windows, and a new motherboard/processor will require a new installation. Just putting the hard drive back in will produce the "blue screen of death" just so you know ahead of time.

Whenever I plug a thumbdrive I now get a bluescreen warning about XP shutting down to protect my computer and then the computer reboots. This happens whether I plug in either my Sandisk or PNY thumbdrives...


Usually blue screen errors are associated with hardware. Since you are experiencing problems after migrating the motherboard it has to do something with it.
Try removing the Jumpers and cables associated with the usb ports on your motherboard and refix them back. This will probably help you fix the problem (also make sure your jumper and cable configurations are correct - they can usually be found on *********** board manual)
If the problem still persists try taking the whole machine apart and refix it again.
Hopefully this will help you. Best Regards NextDoorNerd

Can't access internet wireles router says connected hp is a vista


If Nothing else changed in the last 2 weeks, such as a new router, or other hardware changes, AND it just started happening, I suggest you do a "system restore" to a date BEFORE the problem started.
This should correct the problem, and if you did any updates or other software installations, you will need to re install them.

Finally, one option prior to system restoring is to turn off the wireless router (unplug it) and then wait a minute. Plug back in. Then turn on your computer. You can try this first if you haven't already..
Good luck..

No video displayed after updating bios


Yes, it is true and common. Anytime you update bios, also find the method for resetting/undoing the bios update.
go to the mobo mfg website and find how to reset the bios. This usually involves removing the battery, and jumpering the reset.
The reset may not reset/undo the update, but simply reset the bios to defaults.
Depending on the bios type the restore may vary.

Toshiba satellite m35-s456 my computer lights come on but it will not boot up?


The same thing happened to me today. I think it is the power supply connection to the mother board. I had to replace the motherboard 2 yrs ago with the same symptoms. I can reboot the computer 20 times and once the laptop will boot-up OK. But most of the time the power button will come one but the screen is blank. I'm not sure if I am going to get a new laptop or just replace the motherboard...again...
