    It's not the HDD. i've tried other drives. It seems to be a problem on the mobo itself, the RAM checks good, the HDD's I've tried check as good, and test fine on other machines. processor works fine. Could it be I have a bad north or south bridge? maybe a bad bus somewhere? Stinks someone hands me this thing right as the warranty is over.

    im not sure if really about the mobo, but is everything installed? chipset/drivers perhaps? in some cases, particularly chipsets, in you don't have the right driver, some of function may not work.

Sounds like you merely have a bad HDD. just try to run scandisk under safe mode and for you to check the sectors of your drives.

thanks

F12 function key doesn t work


Function keys are special keys used for assigning program shortcuts and specialty tasks to the keyboard.
They are located at the top of most keyboards and labeled "F1" through "F12."
Some keyboards may only feature 10 function keys, while others may have as many as 18. These keys often go unutilized by the average computer user, but they may have very important tasks for some users, which can lead to problems when the keys do not respond.
Fixing nonresponsive or malfunctioning function keys is quite simple, and should only take a few minutes.

Connect your keyboard to your computer, and power it up.
Open a program that uses the function keys such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Check your keyboard for an "F-Lock" or "Function Lock" key.
This key is used to toggle function-key support; when it is toggled on, the function keys will not work.
Press the "F-Lock" key and then try using a function key in the selected program. "F1" is a good key to test, because it is set to open a "Help" document in all Microsoft software.
If the key does not work, press the "F-Lock" key a second time, and test the keys again.
If the keys still do not work and you are running the Windows 7 operating system, you may need to install a "hotfix" from Microsoft to fix the key functionality.

My computer keeps freezing up when i leave a program open, close the computer , and open it back up


Hi,
Does it happen on the same program that you have or to all other programs?
When did this issue started happening?
If it happens to the same program then try reinstalling it to your computer.
If this issue started happening after you have installed this program or by installing other programs , softwares or hardware then try performing a system restore (if you are using windows OS XP, vista or win 7.)
Hope this helps
Thanks

Identifying lock-ups and freezes This document will help you to locate and troubleshoot programs that cause your notebook to hang, freeze, or lock-up. Print this document or save it to your hard disk drive to have the reference available after disconnecting from the internet. Symptoms of notebook lock-ups, freezes, and hangs include:
  • Nothing moves or blinks on the computer display.
  • The computer will not respond to the mouse or keyboard.
  • An error message appears and will not go away.
Freezes, crashes, and lock-ups may be caused by programs locking up resources, software conflicts, or older programs being incompatible with newer operating systems. Follow the steps in this document, in order, until the problem is resolved. Close locked-up programs and locate problem software If your notebook locks up or stops responding while using a program, close the stalled program to continue using other programs. Also, while closing the program, take note of which other programs are running at the same time.
  1. Close the program that is "Not responding" and determine if the lock-ups continue.
  2. If the lock-ups no longer occur after the program is closed, go to Uninstall and re-install the problem software .
  3. If the lockups continue, press ctrl + alt + delete to go back to the Task Manager.
  4. Write down all of the programs that are running when the lock-up occurs. The conflict could have originated by another software application that is running at the same time.
  5. Close other programs that are running one at a time (except for Explorer and Systray) and determine if the lockups continue. Once you find the problematic software application, go to Uninstall and re-install the problem software .
Uninstall and re-install the problem software To resolve the problem that is causing the notebook to lock-up, uninstall the suspected software and then re-install it. If your software came with an uninstaller program, use it first; otherwise, follow the steps below to uninstall and re-install the program.
  1. Click Start > Control Panel .
  2. When the Control Panel window opens, select Uninstall a program.
  3. Select the program that is causing the lockups and right-click it. Then select Uninstall . NOTE: Remove all versions of the same program. Sometimes upgrades will not remove old versions of the software before installing the new version. This leaves multiple versions of the same software on your computer.
  4. After removing the problem programs, close the Control Panel.
  5. Restart the computer.
  6. Re-install the program following the vendor's instructions
