Sounds like they wiped the Hard Drive Drive clean. You will need to obtain a Windows (or Linux) Installation CD and reinstall the OS.

Hi There, i wonder or you can help me please. one of my friends gave me a motherboard. but with no other components. can you please help me what to buy for my new motherboard. CPU tipe, memory and so on....


My friend, this is a lot like saying my friend gave me a spoon, what kind of a stove should I purchase?

Go purchase a computer if you want one. Beyond your initial question, you have not given any of the specifics concerning the board ... what CPU socket it might have, kind of slots. Do you have a cabinet? A power supply? Might you have ANY componelt that might be used on this un-named board? Is the board even any good?????

What form factor does your new mother board take? Will it fit into an existing cabinet you have? Will the power supply you might have fit your board?

The nicest thing I might say my friend is put your new board on Craig's list or E-bay and get a coule bucks from it.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

Hp Pavilion 763n won't startup light on fan on cpu not running


The most common issue is a portion of the power supply has gone bad (power supplies provide +5, +12, -5, and -12 vdc). Otherwise, the motherboard may need replacing. Try finding a spare power supply from a friend and hook it up to see if everything runs fine before purchasing one (about $40-50). If the power supply doesn't fix it, it could be the CPU (although I believe the CPU fan would still run) or any portion of the motherboard.

Friend gave me an old hp pavilion xz1185 laptop,but he dont recall password for cmos to get in,can i reset cmos?


This may not work but give it a try.
Remove the BIOS battery and the main battery from the laptop for 15+ minutes. Insert the batteries back into the laptop and the BIOS will return to the default setup, hopefully removing the BIOS password. You need to go into the BIOS configuration to set the Time and Date etc. again.
