Question about Intel Motherboard

RANDOM CRASHING All of a sudden, with no obvious cause, my computer will crash and up will come a black screen with white text. The only thing that seems out of the ordinary in that text - to my layman's eye - is the following entries: MOS/GPNU CHECKSUM BAD, and TIME AND DATE NOT SET. Any solutions out there? RSVP and thx, bp

I would first make sure that the  CPU and the case fans are clean  and that the CPU is not overheating. Dirt is a computer killer.

My acer 5750 i7 keeps shutting down


The infected laptops encounter random shutdown problem until some maintenance activity is being performed on the system.


Two important things that you should do to fix a laptop which keeps shutting down are:


1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.


2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.


The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes.
For an instant fix use system utility tool Reginout.

There are many reasons to cause PS3 randomly crash, freezes, keep turn off with red light. If you send back to Sony or other people to repair, it's just waste your time and money - because the same symptoms will be back again. The best way is learning the repair skills of yourself. There is a PS3 DIY Repair Guide - It's video and text guide that let you know how to open the console, make some minor fixes and recover it at last. The author show his professional repair skills that let you step by step to hands on the repair job. Don't worry your ability to do such things : You will be amazing at last that you can do that yourself. The repair guide cost you not much but helpful. The best part is you can help your friends too!

My computer keeps shutting down randomly. Also when i try to use F10 it will not respond if i try and run error checking the system will crash/shut down or give me a black screen. Basicly it randomly...


Possibilities:
1. overheating, and automatic shutdown.
Check that the fans are working.

2. bad RAM, causing "random" crashing.
On a "good" computer, download the free 'MEMTEST86+' software, and run it, to test your RAM.

3. Leaking capacitors on motherboard, causing "voltage-spikes", leading to "random" errors.

4. Bad disk-drive. Remove the disk-drive.
Connect it as a "slave" drive in another computer,
and run 'CHKDSK' ("Check Disk") to look for problems.

Acer Aspire 5535-6608 crashing


This problem is due to a failing hard drive I believe. When the virus scan is working you get a clicking sound then it crashes. Clicking sounds from your laptop while running scans on the hard drive are bad. The first thing to do is to get your irreplaceable files backed up then contact a service professional to get the drive replaced. If it is a reputable service person they should be able to clone the drive over to a new drive with no major issues. Be sure to insist on your old drive back. Even though it may have issues, my guess is that you still have personal information you would not want someone else to get hold of.

Laptop video failure


Sounds like you may have "hit the problem" But to me sounds like the chip itself is no good anymore. Any chance of getting a chip off another board and replacing it?

The only time I've seen this error in the past, it turned out to be a memory error. Try replacing the Ram with new DIMM modules. If possible borrow some from a friend or another PC that you own to test this theory before spending money on it.

In the other case the person had One DIMM and two slots. When he put a DIMM in the the 2nd slot it resolved his problem.

My guess is that the Board is setup to use memory in dual channel mode only and develops a chcksum error if the memory slots are not filled in pairs. It is also advisable to fill them with Matched pairs (Meaning that they are from the same manufacturer, have the same timings, and if possible are from the same lot)

Hope this helps you

Samsung mp3 player crash


Hi undercover. I don't have experience of your actual model, but I've had a similar thing happen to my Inovix MP3/4 player when it crashed (also crashing my whole computer!) and went completely 'dead'. Plugging it into the USB port had no effect - no charge symbol and the computer didn't even acknowledge something was being plugged in. Basically, I kept on trying every time I was on the computer! 2 days later, I plugged it in and 'ding-dong' Windows XP recognised something was in the USB port. I then carried out a Firmware re-load using the supplied disc, and my player burst into life! Firmware crashes are pretty common with various players, I believe. Depending on how old your player is, try the manufacturer's website to see if they've updated the Firmware. Good luck.
