A new pc i just built will only power on for one second and the shuts off. Here's my specs: I5-4670 K ,. MSI Z87-GD65 , 8gb Kingston Hyper X Fury , Gigabyte GTX 770 OC 2Mb, Evga 750 G2 PSU.. All fans


Now remember, the G2 main board cable has 2 connections on one end, and one on the other. You have to make sure both are connected. This is a common issue.

If this doesn't work, check to make sure that all your cards are properly seated.

If I want to add more memory beyond the 8gb max from the MFR, will it work?


You cannot add more RAM that the recommended max. specified by the manufacture.
If you could install more than it 8Gb, either the laptop won't work OR it cannot access more than 8Gb of RAM.

I wnt buy laptop but idk which1 bter and suitable for my software? any1 can help me pls?


For me easy;

1) The Dell Inspiron 15R i5 Notebook PC comes with an Intel i5 processor, model 2410M (2.3GigaHertz frequency rate),

It uses DDR3 at 1066MHz, (Why would you?), or DDR3 at 1333MHz, and up to 8GB's of it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors#.22Sandy_Bridge.22_.2832_nm.29_3

It has Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics built-in. (It's in the Intel Core i5 processor. It is Integrated Graphics)

Ummm, no.

2) The Toshiba Satellite L755-S5173 Notebook PC, comes with an Intel Core i5 also.

Model 2450M Intel Core i5 processor;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors#.22Sandy_Bridge.22_.2832_nm.29_3

It comes with an Nvidia GeForce GT525M graphics chipset.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_500M_.285xxM.29_series

A LOT better than the Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), above.

From what I can see it is a graphics chipset soldered to the motherboard,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L755-L755D-L750-L750D/dismantle-laptop-3.htm

Click on the photo in Step 27. Bottom view of motherboard.
Look at the black Fan Assembly, and the copper curved Cooling Tube.

Go over to the far left of the Cooling Tube, to the rectangular silvery shape. Has 4 black screws in it. (This metal plate sits on top of the Processor)

In-between this rectangular metal plate, and the bottom of the motherboard, is the Nvidia graphics chipset.

Square dark green shape (Circuit board), with a smaller dark square shape in it. (GPU)

Means it isn't a graphics adapter card, and therefore not upgradeable.

Uses DDR3 Sdram (SO-DIMM) 1333MHz ram memory, and up to 8GB.

3) Lenovo G470 Notebook PC has an Intel Core i5, Model 2450M also.
UP to 8GB's of DDR3 Sdram (SO-DIMM) ram memory, at 1333Megahertz, too.

Intel HD Graphics 3000 is used also. (Integrated Graphics)

Ummm, no.

My choice?
The Toshiba Satellite L755-S5173.

Better graphics.

One of the things you ALWAYS look at for a laptop, because 95 percent of the time you cannot upgrade it.

(A LOT of laptop manufacturers state - Graphics Card, when the truth is it is not a replaceable graphics adapter card, as used in a desktop computer )

This means you are stuck with the graphics of the laptop, until you obtain a better one.

Toshiba Satellite 1005-S157 shuts down periodically by itself. Replaced fan/heatsink. Still shuts off.


you need to check a few things... when the fan/heatsink assembly were replaced, did you make sure that the thermal pads on the CPU and GPU are NEW/Good.... Make sure that the Heatsink GPU pad Firmly sits in the chip....

You can test the thermal controller by using a hair dryer or heat gun.... Point it onto the heatsink pipes and see if your fan spins when the pipes get hot, then remove and see if the fans slow after a minute...

You might have faulty RAM or Misseated RAM... Pull The RAM chips and reseat them...
Also Make Sure Your CPU Is Locked Down....

Periodic Shut Downs Can Be Caused By Quite A Few Different Things...

Typically it's due to Thermal Damage
Though Failing RAM or A Failing Hard Drive, Overheated Video/GPU Chip, Or Even Failing CPU can as Well Cause This Issue...

What is the maximum processor capability for a toshiba satellite m200 model number PSMC3A-O4POO8


go to their website and enter model & model #- find a click for specs.- should list max. ram and cpu capabilities. unless cpu is removable, as a desktop- which i doubt- i have a satellite m35x 1.3. you may need to replace the mobo (mother board), which can be really hairy!! see if you can upgrade your ram- it will make a rather significant difference in performance- can also install larger capacity hd. try 'flashing'- upgrading your bios- if your system isn't 'brand new'! you may have that option on the toshiba website.
good luck!

Toshiba Satellite A100 LE4000 Turns Off Randomly


there must be still a problem with your current cooling system. try cleaning up your laptops fan. cpu gets heated up very easily even if you turned it off for a while. you can do this by unscrewing the parts, the inside must be pretty dusty or something. this also happened to me but from a different unit.

also, try checking for the latest bios driver for your laptop and to be sure, download it on toshiba site itself. because latest drivers for your bios also manages the control of your cpu fans.

if you could also get access to your systems cooling options in bios, try checking if your cpu's temperature are doing fine.

but i prefer you cleaning up the inside fans as well. hope this helps.
