The sticky stuff was the thermal compound. You'll need to replace it ASAP. Your CPU is overheating! If you don't apply thermal paste, you may damage your computer.

Hello, When computers "beep", they're sending the user the signal that there's some hardware problem, sometimes damaged hardware or dirty hardware, first you have to identify the piece of hardware that is giving you problems, I would go after memory in the first place, open your computer an you'll see the internal parts. Remember to turn off your computer first.

This are the memory modules, if you have more than one take only one first, unlock the memory module by pressing the small plastic tabs on both ends of the slot, then take out the memory module. now turn on your pc.

If the pc is still beeping, turn off the pc again, take the second memory module out and put back the one you took out, tu put a memory module remember to force the memory into the slot the right way, if the memory is not fitting into the slot turn it down side up and push it into the slot until you hear two "clicks".

If both memory modules doesn't seem to respond, turn off your PC and take both memory modules off, clean the contacts using a pencil eraser, be gentle while cleaning the contacts as a lot of pressure will damage the memory modules, put them back in and turn back on your PC.

Take the dust off the memory slots by using a paint brush.

I would try cleaning both memory modules first and putting both in once the contacts are clean.

Try this and if you're still having problems I would recommend you to seek for a professional to solve your problem.

Hope this tip helps and have a nice day.

Don't hesitate to reply if you're still having problems.

SOURCE: PCV R44G, won't boot, no fans, won' turn on.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

SOURCE: Why won't my Acer x1301 boot?

The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.


make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated

on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in


Test all power and data leads that attach from motherboard to your hard drive IDE SATA

make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

if its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail


check the graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust reinstall it


restart your computer the found new hardware wizard should activate

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy drive have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

also check the keyboard for secure dust free connection ps2 and or usb

hope this helps

Im struggling to format pc have been told its a south bridge problem got it done in the end but took 10 atempts


Then I guess its probably not a south bridge problem...
I'd check the hard disk with a boot disk utility like Seagate's Seatools.
It works with most drives, and will check it for bad sectors.
If it detects errors, or fails, I'd backup any data that you've put on it and replace the drive.
The link to seatools is here:

SeaTools Seagate

Its free.
Hope this helps.

My motherboard have power but no display on screen


Please follow the following :

* Make sure that you have connected the Monitor cable firmly.
* Make sure that CPU fan is spinning else check & make it run (your pc won't boot if you missed your fan).
* Check for any unusual beep sounds after you switch on.
* Remove your RAM, Power cables, other Add on cards. Clean/wipe them properly and reinsert them correctly.
* If your PC installed Graphic Card, remove it and run your PC again using your onboard vga port.
* Replace your Power Supply Unit with another good conditioned one.
If the problem persist check your processor.

1. function of bios chip 2. function of north and south bridge chipset 3. cpu function


Hi there. Here is a brief description of those components found on the motherboard.

1. BIOS chip: This is known as Basic Input Output System and the chip contains the base instructions on how to boot the PC. All personalized settings can be configured in the BIOS such as CPU overclocking.

2. North Bridge: This component works with high speed hardware components such as RAM and PCI-E cards.

3.South Bridge: This component works with slower speed hardware components such as the hard drive and USB.

4. CPU: Central Processing Unit, this is basically the brain of a computer and this component is the one that does all calculating of data. So when you run an application, the CPU processes the data involving the application.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

The south chipset bridge of my Asus k8n-vm motherbard heats up


85 to 95 is ok. Anything higher than100 is pushing it. If possible add a fan to the side of the system case (Best choice) or you can buy a south bridge fan. You're MB doesn't have holes in the MB to attach a chipset fan but you can still attach a cooler on to the chipset. Like this fan; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103155
And you'll need this as well for a good bond; http://www.outletpc.com/c2019.html

Enjoy!

South bridge is over heating and no display


Check that the cooling fans in the cpu are working and clean. Clean all of your vent louvers on the cpu. Lastly make sure you have 3-6 inches of space at least around your cpu and that it does not sit in direct sun light. Once all this is done and they are working properly your problem should be solved.

I got a motherboard asrock and i am not getting a boot up nor a bios beep what could be the problem?


is it in warranty..?? if not..
do it if u r a professional..

check the following:
1) the cmos battery (above +3v)..replace with a standby n see..
2) remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause jam/short circuitry/excess resistace n many more..resulting an increase in heat..
3) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market) between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..
4) the smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v (black~ground); +12v (yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg & grey~sb); -12v (blue); -5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..
the 'oscillator and error amplifier ic', or pwm switching regulator circuit..look for defective protector-transformer/resistance(esp 4.7k)/mosfet..
5) ur main/mother board..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look for defective capacitors(esp above 1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector....

..plz give higher priority to step1-4 (as listed above) CAREFULLY..

immediately contact ur system admin/vendor.
