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.

Why is it that my PC (desktop) encountered suddenly shutdown? WINDOWS HAS RECOVERED UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48 L


You say Windows, but not which version. Regardless, the "blue screen of d??th" is a mighty frustrating issue. There are ways that can help isolate the cause, but they are complex and require additional software. The two things that most often cause crashes are intermittent hardware faults and defective or incompatible drivers. Check to see if you have recently updated and of the component drivers. If so, use the "rollback" feature to go back to the previous driver and see if that helps. Unfortunately, often the only way to solve these problems is to reload the OS. If you can still access your system, now is a good time to back up all your data that you don't want to lose in case the system crashes hard and you need to reformat and reload.

Everything is fine except for crashing (blue screen) or just blacking out. Can restart automatically or I have to remove the battery, power supply retry several times.


Hello the homepage is here:

Windows 7 is not a supported system.

Especialy not the 64 bit. The 32 bit will probably work fine.

Try to install the newest graphic driver and upgade the bios to the latest version.
DO NOT run the bios upgrade before the system is running fine.
Install any missing drivers.
Look in the device manager.
Any file here from dell needs to be unziped before you install it.

Good luck

Logitech c300 webcam,when I plug in usb,I get a blue screen and computer crashes


Open up your computer case and look at the motherboard (the thing everything connects into). Look at the little round metal topped cylinders on the motherboard and see if any of them are sort of puffy or oozing any liquid. It sounds to me like your motherboard is fried and that will cause it to crash when you plug in a USB device.

Games crashing and icons on my desktop scattering


hi this does sound like your graphics card has a conflict with another device, your best bet would be to go to the site of your graphics card manufacturer and download the latest drivers for your card, un-install ( actually delete ) the graphics card from the system, ie...add and remove programs, look for drivers for your graphics card, then remove, also go to your device manager and delete it from the hardware so there is no trace of it ( don't worry it will still work it will just default to minimal settings on re-boot) re-boot the system, if it says found new hardware and tries to install your card click no you don't want to install it, then find where you downloaded the drivers and install them and then that should stop the blue screens, games..this also could be the sound card has a conflict with something, as i know allot of games just crash to the desktop for this reason, try doing the same for the sound card, download, remove and install, as above...any more probs just reply and i will see what else there is, if you can also post the blue screen error on here to will be helpful as you can determine what the cause is...hope this helps

My Dell 5000e unexpectidly turns itself off.


There are a few things this could be, most of them are motherboard related, but there could be a cooling issue or a power supply issue. Check the BIOS log for "thermal events". Things like CPU overheating can cause weird reactions in the machine, called System hysteresis. Basically, the computer goes crazy, opening things, crashing, rebooting, etc. Based on what youve said, "restarts normally", I dont think there is a CPU issue, nor a memory issue.

The first thing I would try is replacing the power supply and remove the battery (just as a test), and see if the machine starts behaving better or exhibits the same issues.

I believe the issue you have described can be most likely resolved with a new motherboard, especially if the power supply route does not yield positive results. Bad news is, a p3 motherboard is rather hard to get, and hard to replace, and rather pricey. I would sooner consider getting another notebook pc before replacing the board.

changing ram is good to make your computer more faster but sometomes it do cause harm, before you change your system was working fine, but you have already upgrade to a higher ram but now you recieve more crashes unlike before, may its time to re install your windows or have it reformated sudden changes in a computer hardware cause these problems this is incompatibility issues between the hardware and software that causes these problems to appear

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
