Hi there,

I read your other comment posted on the other topic, and yes I have to agree, I think your GPU has blown.

I write this, because I had the same problem about a year ago. The power switch on my old tower case had broken, so I bought a new one. Swapped everything over, turned it on, and, wham! Everytime I tried to boot, I got either the Blue Screen Of Death, or nothing. I tried everything. I swapped my GPU, as I had a spare one, but the still nothing. So I thought I had blown Mobo. Bought a new one, but still the same. In the end I gave up and paid for an egineer to have a look.

Basically, when I swapped cases, I blew the Mobo (and I'm a systems builder, lol), this in-turn blew my GPU (which is why it didn't work on new Mobo). I replaced GPU on new board, and would you believe it, it worked.

Replace your GPU (but if you can, test with a spare one, just in case it's your Mobo that's blown).

Cost me a bomb, but I hope my mistake saves you money.

Just a follow question regarding ecs 945g-m3 motherboard.. is this compatible for core 2 duo processor with 45nm technology like Intel E7500 (2.93G) 3mb 1066fsb C2D.


According to the ECS website, it should support the 1066 FSB C2D, however it mentioned it's on the 65nm technology. Latest processor support shows for the E6420. So, I doubt it would take the 7500...

if you are using a 32 bit operating system it will not recognize all of the memory in some instances or the mobo is not designed for more than 2 gb maximum check the mainboard (motherboard) website for specs on your model. sometimes you have to use 64 bit operating system to be able to get the full use of memory over 2 GB

I have a mobo C51PVGM-GB that I would like to upgrade the video card and not use the one built into the Mobo.


You are upgrading the graphics.
Instead of using Integrated Graphics, you will be using a dedicated graphics card.

Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard.

The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered to the motherboard.

It is not a video (Graphics) card.

A dedicated graphics adapter card has it's own GPU, and graphics ram memory.

Information on the Gateway 4006136R - Nvidia GeForce 6150 AM2 uBTX 1394 motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006136R/4006136Rnv.shtml

Viewing this small photo of the motherboard, the Orange long slot you see is a PCI Express x16 slot.

1) The Northbridge chip is a C51PVG
2) The Southbridge chip is an MCP51

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another name is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

3) Made by ECS
4) Has an AM2 processor socket on the motherboard, for AMD processors.

Which intel motherboard ( model detatil) is suitable for an intel dual core 2.6 Ghz processor?also what should be the capacity of ram that may suitably mathe the intel dual core 2.6 Ghz processor?


Assuming the CPU you have is an E5300 2.6 duo 45nm then use an LGA 775 mobo.

For Win XP / Vista run at LEAST 2gb (Preferably 4GB) Ensure the mobo specs are compatible with the type of ram also.

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to...


Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

My gpu is causing my pc to crash and freeze before it even boots and somtimes it dosnt display any images is there anyway i can fix it and my gpu is a 3870x2


When this problem occur? this problem occur when you installed the driver of the video device? When you installed a software? or when you installed a new hardware?

if the problem occur when you installed the driver of the video device or when installing a new software, you need to boot in Safe Mode.
If the problem occur when you installed a new hardware you need to check the BIOS setting in IRQ, check if there is a conflict in the hardware...
If you use video card when that problem occur and you have onboard video device, take out the video card and use the onboard video and boot to windows and uninstall the software that cause the problem. if you use onboard video device try to put a video card and remove the software that cause the problem..

try to change the memory of your computer if you have extra with the same specs. If you don't have a memory reinstall your Operating System.

If you can't install windows and the computer keeps on hanging or restarting while installing, I think there is something wrong either one of the computer hardware, like the Memory, Processor, Motherboard, Hard Disk, and other interface devices. TY

It needs to have a cd or dvd drive in it, then you can add a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Then all you need is another copy of Windows XP to install on it.
