Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Other Thread I added some extra information in that thread about my computer issue if you'd like to view it. I don't mean to be pushy, I'm just trying to get this issue solved as soon as possible. I have a feeling, or a fear rather, that my motherboard may be to blame. Someone else on a different forum described the same issue I'm currently having, and said they had to end up replacing the motherboard because it was to blame. From what I've described, does it sound like this is the problem? What's odd is that the previous PSU before this one still keeps the system running, just with crashes every now and then, but still running, and I have no idea why that could be.

Intel 31 3 beep sound solve


3 Beeps usually means a memory issue. If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Why crossfire cant x-trap in my computer?


i have located this it seems there might be a conflict of some sorts
First make sure your running Cross Fire in administrator mode.
McAffee has updated their program and should no longer detect any CF Files are false positives.
Some free virus scanners are detecting some CF files as trojans. This is a FALSE POSITIVE. CF Contains no malicious files.
Make sure to disable your virus scanner during all phases of the game. Download, Installation and Running. At the very least as a test to see if the game functions normally under these conditions.
We are specifically looking to see if there is a common anti virus program that is causing these errors while the game is running.
Also please review other threads like Crackindomes suggestion:
http://forum.z8games.com/showthread.php?t=21570
And another thread on McAffe:
http://forum.z8games.com/showthread.php?t=22126
These threads may contain helpful hints to getting your Cf running.
Lastly, Xtrap has been known to conflict with SOME video caputuring and voice communication software. Skype, Fraps etc. may not run properly or conflict with the game when running. Make sure to try and close those extra programs down when running CF. Again, as a test to see if the game will function without them.
We will be looking for Xtrap updates that will fix some of these compatibility issues, but right now we need to collect as much data as possible.
hope this helps

On my Gateway tower the power switch will not stay on. It's not getting the blue backlight either. The fan tries to start but doesn't make it all the way either. It happened a week or so before that but...


This sounds like the symtoms of a power switch that may have failed and need to be replaced, or the power supply may be bad. (It could be both; don't keep trying to make a bad switch work, if it's shorting out.)
You can have the power supply load tested by a local computer tech if you take it in to them, and a new one is usually about $30.00. If the switch itself is bad, there is a way to jump the connection on the motherboard to check this, and in that case the machine will boot normally, and the power switch will have to be replaced. You can sometimes get these used from recycled systems, at a considerable discount. Just make sure you get the correct part number before searching online.
In either case, it's a relatively simple fix, once you have the parts in hand...
Enter your serial number at Gateway support and you should be able to look up the part numbers for your system. Make sure if you search 'power switch' you order not the plastic bezel button but the actual switch component. If you're handy, you can replace this yourself.

Did not boot and with 3 beep sound


Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
  • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer.
If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Replace memory
If you've determined or believe that the memory in y our computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.

On the File menu, there should be an option to print. So you just use the mouse to click File, click print, then choose your printer and setup the page, etc. and choose print or ok.
If you're having other problems, please see this link and this link for xp and this link for vista.

My computer does not turn on right away, except fans.


It could be a failing power supply, but here's a good article to help you diagnose the issue. A local computer technician will be able to load test your power supply if you take it in to them and let you know quickly if that is indeed the problem, in which case it's fairly inexpensive to remedy.
Otherwise I would guess a boot issue of some kind.
