I am having a ard time finding the right fuse for my MOTU 828 Mk1
My MOTU 828 Mk1 went down. I had a friend of mine look at it. He said it was the fuse inside of the module, and proceeded to attempt replacing it for me. The replacement fuse was too high an amperage and was fast acting to boot. When I attempted to find the specs for my Mk1, I came up short. I need a FULL description of the right fuse, including dimensions. Here is what I do know: 125mA slow blo, About 3/4m inch length (per the distance between the ends of the clips the fuse goes into). The data sheets I'm running into have alot of info that I don't understand, so I'm scared to order the wrong fuses online, and can't find a fuse of such low amperage locally. Can you help?

On your friend's computer (your old computer):
1. Launch Google Chrome.
2. Click on the "Customize and control Google Chrome" icon in the upper right corner (looks like three horizontal bars. This will open a menu. Select "Settings".
3. The "Settings" page will open in a new tab. Look at the "Sign in" section at the top. It will probably say, "Signed in as joegood" or whatever your Google username is. Click on "Disconnect your Google Account". That should take care of it.
Processors do not fail unless they are mishandled or installed incorrectly. This system is very old and uses memory that is no longer available. Try starting your system with no memory, does it start to beep repeatedly? The memory may be at fault. No beep, could be the motherboard has failed. You will not find replacement parts, you will need a new system.
I had this same problem with mine. After taking the box apart and racking my brain on what it could be, I found this solution: I have 2 of The Incredible Holiday Light Show Trees from Gemmy and they
both had this same problem. After getting rained on they would work for
a few minutes and then the lights would dim to nothing but the music
still played. I completely disassembled one of them and checked the
voltages on all of the ICs first at no load then under full load. At no
load everything was fine but under load the input voltages when way
down. It turned out being the fuse (F22). It checked fine using
continuity and with no load but under load it heats up and reduces the
voltage going to the full wave rectifier. The full wave rectifier
provides the DC voltage to the whole circuit board. I didn't have a
replacement so I bypassed it with a jumper wire until I can get a better
fuse to replace it with. Both trees work fine now. OBTW the fuse F22
looks more like a disc capacitor then a fuse but it's marked so you
shouldn't have any trouble finding it. Hope this solves your problem as
it did mine.
You will have to open the control box and either solder in a jumper wire to bypass or replace this fuse. Hope this helps. I just went out in the garage to test it and this was fixed my issue
First contact gateway or visit their website and findout what the model and part No. of the fastest Intel processor that your motherboard will support is. (Your mothrboard support manual should have this information also). Then try to find one - you might have to try E-Bay if they are no longer manufactured. A faster processor will definitely help.
However incrasing the amount of RAM will help even more. Windows will use all the physical RAM that you can install. Windows will always run faster with more RAM as it will not have to access virtual memory (your comparitively slow hard drive paging file) nearly as much.
Also, If you have the time and a good way to back-up your data files you might want to consider formatting your hard drive and installing a fresh load of your operating system. This is a good idea if you have noticed that the PC has been performing slower and slower over a long period of time. The system registry becomes loaded with no longer needed entries (often from the failure of software removal tools to do a thorough job). Same for the hard drive - even after you defragment it.
Besides, a fresh load would provide you with the opportunity to see if True Crypt is slowing you down to any significant degree. Time a boot of your operating system before installing true crypt and then check the boot time after installing the program.
