Data Corruption Problem

My files will auto-corrupt, like rar, images, etc. I check my hard disk & ram by putting them in another cpu, no data corruption problem so it must be the motherboard's problem. Should I buy a new motherboard?

    It's not software problem! As I said, my files auto-corrupt! Everything like images, video, rar file, zip file, iso, exe, even system file!

    And for your information, I format my hard disk so there's no way that virus's the reason. Plus, I already said that putting my hard disk in another computer don't have data corruption problem!

    As how do I test for data corruption, I repair any one of my rar file that's not corrupt and test the fixed one. Using my current computer (meaning the ASUS P5V800-MX Motherboard), when I test the fixed one, it'll definitely have some files corrupt while using my another computer, it'll be 100% no corruption. The only difference between these two computer is motherboard.

    For your info, there's another two person that have the same problem as me (through their posts when I browse through the Asus website about ASUS P5V800-MX Motherboard)!

I have never heard of the motherboard causing software problems
I think you have a virus
Download "Malwarebytes" install and update it then run computer in safe mode with Malwarebytes
It should solve your problem

My cpu speed to low i used asus p7h55mle series mother board



add more ram is the best way of speeding up a computer
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules
you might have to many programs running at the same time putting to much strain on the CPU
try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs

scroll to the bottom toolbar bottom of screen right click you can select task manager applications also processes you will see whats running on your computer and ticking over you might have a virus

if you see something running that you does not need to be running select end now then you might you might uninstall that particular program

and some unnecessary programs

you should also check leads from motherboard to hard drive for secure dust free connections

click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now

click start tick in both boxes this will schedule to on restart
do not have any input while chkdsk utility is in progress any might damage your computer

Im just wondering why i might need a slave drive, i have a 80 gig master and a spare 80g drive should i put them both in or does it realy matter


slave drive is very handy in backup files you can store data and other software and drivers. it does matter becouse master drive always has the operating system that the virus and error always happen. hard drive with IDE connector has two jumper setting slave and master. connected to IDE cable. sata disk has no master slave..

I have a problem with my m/b k7som+ 7.5c. When I press the pwr button everything seems ok, all fans are working properly and I also hear the HDD spinning sound. However there is no POST beep or anything...


Hello,

There are a few procedures you can possibly try before replacing components.

I HIGHLY recommend you unplug power while trying these steps

1) Unplug power and remove CMOS battery (usually a small silver circular battery) on motherboard for 1 minuted then reinstall battery and see if it boots up.

2) Re-seat all RAM memory chips. If it doesn't help, then try booting the system 1 memory chip at a time, to rule out a bad stick of RAM

3) If you have a separate video card (not onboard video) then try re-seating it

4) unplug both data and power cables to all internal components (hard drives, CD-Roms, Floppies, etc) and also internal cards and see if it boots. If it does then reconnect one device at a time til you find the culprit


That's pretty much all you can do without swapping out parts.

I hope this help and I wish you luck!!

Regards

What is iso?


An "iso" file is just a disk image.
There are two ways to deal with a disk image: put it on a disk, or make it look like you put it on a disk.


The easiest way to think of an iso file is more like a "zip" or "cab" file, only without the compression.
An iso file contains the image of a disk. That means it contains all the files and folders that were on that disk, much like a zip or cab file contains a collection of files and folders. The real difference is that an iso is a byte-for-byte copy of the low-level data actually stored on a disk.
There's nothing about the iso format that actually knows about files, folders or formats. It's just the raw data from the disk. Now, naturally that raw data, if interpreted correctly, may know about files, folders and format. But, like a disk, the operating system has to look, see what format was used (things like FAT32, NTFS and the like), and interpret the contents of the iso file as if it were reading the raw data from an actual disk.

Boots up crashes 3-4 times starts working then crashes after several minutes. Have replaced cpu & processor


If the CPU is working then I would put this down to either a corrupt windows installation or faulty RAM. It could also be a fault due to heat, but if you have that in check then I think it's the Windows install or RAM.
To test the Windows install, power on your PC with all hard drives disconnected, power included and if it is stable on the screen that says NTLDR is missing or insert system disk then this confirms the windows installation is corrupted.

I reformat my unit and failed to prepare back up


go to the manufacturers website and download the drivers onto a flash drive unpack them into a folder on the computer and then do the update driver wizard or run the .exe file for the driver this should take care of the problem for you, and what i do for my customers is create a cd with all drivers etc and a ghost image before loading data that way it is easy to reimage the pc after corruption.

if this answers your query please rate my expertise and answer accordingly.

Pc restarted


Irrespective of being a PC or a Mac the computer system behavior and consistency are dependent upon certain factors. These factors are broadly divided into software factors, hardware factors and the surroundings.
The common software factors leading to a logical failure are:
i.) System files responsible for handling control to the operating system missing or corrupt
ii.) Unsigned drivers or drivers trying to access read only system area
iii.) Operating system files corruption due to incomplete automatic update, malicious software
The common hardware factors leading to a physical failure are:
i.) Problems related to mainboard in terms of the chipset or connector, power supply issue like incompetent power supply to run the hardware setup
ii.) Problems related to hard drive itself or the data or power cables
iii.) Improper setup of hard drive cooler fans (if any)
The common surrounding factors leading to data loss are:
i.) Heat dissipation issues related to closed or poorly ventilated surroundings like in a basement or store
ii.) Moist surroundings leading to the formation of thick dust layers and thus increasing heat
iii.) Direct sunlight leading to extra heat and thus hardware failure
We should logically negate these scenarios so that we can narrow down to the root cause of the problem and take corrective measures.
In case we find that the data loss is due to any logical failure, we can use data recovery software as they are programmed to meet the challenges due to all kind of logical crashes. They scan through the file system, locate all the files which are marked as deleted and are distributed as fragments across the partition, logically rearrange them as per the file system information and then recover them. The data recovery software are indispensable in cases like file system corruption, hard drive formatting operating
system corruption, accidental file deletion or malicious software like virus, spyware etc. We can perform a ‘Do It Yourself’ data recovery using these utilities as they are self descriptive and User friendly.
We need to install the data recovery software on another hard drive which is bootable. We can also use a different working system preferably using the same operating system platform as for MS Windows. Then, we can attach our hard drive to the same for scanning. For attaching the hard drive we nowadays use USB 2.0 Hi Speed or IEEE 1394/Firewire Cables, Attachments or Enclosures. The same can be achieved by a Master and Slave setup that requires hard drive jumper operations and thus is a little complex. We should avoid any other jumper operations as of the mainboard as they may lead to unstable system behavior based on BIOS settings.
We should always save the recovered data on a healthy hard drive.
In case of data loss due to hardware failure where the hard drive is either not getting powered or can not be recognized by the BIOS, we need to go for hard drive recovery service. The data recovery service is personalized help, delivered by data recovery experts. Such experts can extract your data in all possible scenarios of physical data loss.

Video memory


1) On board video devices often use main system RAM,
by remapping it into their own address space.

This is designed to be CHEAP not GOOD.

Any RAM used by the video controller is NOT available to
to Windows, thus reducing system performance.

2) Sacrificing system RAM for video is a bad idea, the
system needs it more. Extra RAM in video controllers
is used mostly for 3-D effects and gaming, because
most video systems already have plenty of RAM for
implementing colors screen resolution.

On board video controllers are never fast or exotic enough
to benefit from the extra RAM anyway.

The rest of the system (i.e. Windows) on the other hand
can put any extra RAM to a far better use, by reducing
the need to store transient data on disk.

Don't forget that a hard disk is 10,000,000 times slower than
physical RAM, and when Windows starts running out of
physical RAM, it starts swapping data to disk (thrashing).

The performance penalty is not subtle !!!! Operations that
took a few seconds can take hours and even days.

3) It may be possible to change the balance between
system RAM and VIDEO RAM in the BIOS.
This depends on the motherboard.

4) If you want to drastically improve performance, do
buy a separate video card, for example an ATI Radeon
Saphire and disable the onboard video.

You must make sure the video card will fit in your
motherboard. Depending on the boards age, it
can use one of several types of I/O slots:

Vesa
PCI
AGP 2x
AGP 4x/ 8x
PCI Express

etc...

The card must match the slot.

5) The suggestion that adding a separate video card would
somehow slow down your computer is absolute non-sense.

Tell the guy to read some books, take a few classes, and
keep his opinions to himself until he knows something.

Internal video cards (on-board) have limited capabilities,
and steal system resources. Add-on cards are designed
for performance, by adding resources and off-loading
graphics related computation from the main CPU,
allowing it to do 0ther things.

6) Finally, using the hard-drive to supplement video RAM
is impossible. The hard disk is way too slow. It would be
like hitching a snail in front of your Porche. Perhaps
even a little worse.

Video RAM needs to be extremely fast, even faster than
system RAM. It is often organized using ultra-wide buses
with interleaved addressing for maximum speed. Also,
for this reason, good video RAM is not cheap. A good
Video CARD will have between 256 to 512 MB of fast RAM.

If you run Windows XP, your system should have at between
1024 to 2048 MBytes of system physical RAM.

Less RAM will make your system drastically slower when
doing things like video and image processing.

For VISTA, two gigs is the absolute minimum.


Disk are used for storing lots of data at a slow speed,
and retaining it with the power OFF.

Hard disks can store about 1,000 times as much as
physical RAM, but the access time is up to 10 million
times slower:

RAM can be accessed in 1 nanosecond.
DISK takes 10 milliseconds.
