Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

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?

    I've downloaded CCleaner and scrubbed the hard drive and the registry and that seems to have stopped the crashing. As this is written, I'm into my fourth day without a crash.



    My thanks to all who gave advice.

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

Screen remains black when coming out of sleep mode asus a8n-vm cms motherboard


IT is most probably windows 7 issue. I saw problem with desktop computers coming back from sleep for many times.

I advice you to avoid sleep. If that is not issue, first test memory, cause sleep stores everything to the memory.

Please tell which OS you use ? As said on start it might be Windows 7 ...

Hi, my asus f3sc display card crashed due to the fan problme i guess. When i was working, the screen suddenly went black, and it halted. Then i tried to start again. It's starting, but nothing comes on...


if the card crashed then the whole computer would crash, also if the graphics card has died the computer wouldn't boot into windows because it wouldn't pass the POST (Checks if RAM/Graphics card {as well as some other things} are working correctly before booting into windows)

sadly there is no way of replacing a dead graphics card in a notebook without a massive chance of destroying your motherboard, i'd recommend contacting the manufacter and find out if you are still inside warrenty to get a replacement.

How can i unhighlite the text in macbook word 2008


JUST READ THROUGH
Just wondering if anyone else was having issues with Microsoft Word from MS Office 2008, where you open the application, you type a few sentences, and the application freezes with the spinning circle of death that won't go away until you click the dock where it says "application not responding" and do a force-quit? You can leave the circle spinning for 10-20-30 minutes, and it never goes away.

Now for the weird part--this error only happens for me when I'm using a specific document on my computer. I can open Word, start a new document, type several paragraphs of text, and it works fine. But I've been working on an existing paper for about two months that all of a sudden started causing these freezes/crashes when editing it. It's about 30 pages roughly, no images, no big inserts that would take up a lot of memory (116 kb in size). And up until today, there were no problems. So why all of a sudden can't I edit anything on this paper without freezing the program?! I downloaded the Microsoft Office 2008 Service Pack 1 that was just released after this problem started, and ran all the recent Java and program updates through Software Update with computer restarts. I even copied the text from the Word document I was working on, pasted it into a new document, tried saving it as both .doc and .docx, and again the program still freezes when working with that text in a new file. This one baffles me. It's like the text within a document is somehow freezing the application. One thing I did notice is that the freezes seem to happen when I'm scrolling using a mouse wheel. Not always, but quite a bit. I suppose this is some memory issue related to several pages of text that the program can't render or process when you add new lines of text or scroll, but again, I can't figure why this paper I've been working on for months all of a sudden decided to start freezing Word today. Can you really only have 30 double-spaced pages of text in Word before it crashes?

Looks like I've found my reason to switch to Open Office, since I'm 3-4 days out from a

My computer turns on sometimes the quickly goes blank. Other times, the On light comes on but the screen stays black and nothing seems to be moving inside.


try to desconnect or unplug your hard drive, if you see a black screen with a bunch of white letters, you hard drive is crashed, if not try to conect a second monitor (external) tru you vga connector, if work fine you have a lcd problem===>>>reemplace asap.

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.
