Re: I won two ati sapphire x1950pro graphics cards but...

Man Great win you have some kick-A$$ cards but I am sorry to say your current MB does not support crossfire video cards. But if this a store bought system from Packard Bell you should have a Name: ATI Radeon X300 (RV370 SE) that your computer came with. Just to tell you one of these bad boys will put the Name: ATI Radeon X300 (RV370 SE) to shame if this is what you have in your system.

Why won't my hard drive show up after I restart my computer?

I'll Suggest you to open the case and connect the hard driver data cable connector to other port in the mother board. Second thing you can do is change the data cable of hard drive and try with other one.
Third thing you can do is check if your SMPS is providing proper Voltage or not.
Try above steps and let me know the results.

Hitachi Deskstar causes a Power Error on my Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions, SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

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

make sure the CPU central processing unit has thermal grease and a dust free secure seating

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

could be a memory dump you might have to many programs running at one time putting to much stress on the CPU not having enough ram will do this

might be getting to hot make sure the CPU has a dust free secure seating and has THERMAL paste

if you right click in the bottom toolbar select task manager applications you will see whats running also processes you will see whats ticking over if you see something running that should not be select end now you might even uninstall that program and some unnecessary programs

check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope it helps

I have a problem with my laptop Lenovo z565. It is working correctly in general, but if I turn it off, and don't close my laptop, next time I turn it on, the screen stays black even though the sys

Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if okay! the LCD screen on the monitor has an intermittent issue, if both show the same symptoms, the problem is in the Video Graphics Card, usually built into the motherboard.

Drive monitoring software like yours and the SMART monitoring built into many motherboards keep watch on several hard drive parameters. When something goes out of a preset range you get an error message telling you about it. While this doesn't mean your drive is going to fail soon, it's a good idea to back up important data (pictures, documents, etc.) now before something goes wrong and you can't access it.

Actually, backing up is a good idea in any case, but many people don't. Not a good idea when you may have things like family photos stored that can't be replaced. When a hard drive fails, it's expensive and not always successful to try recovering the data.

If you don't already have a system restore disc, this would be a good time to make one. Some computers come with a utility program that lets you make restore discs. You can also use software like Norton Ghost. Then if your hard drive does eventually fail, you'll be able to restore your system after installing a new drive.

You can also get a new drive now before anything goes wrong on the current one. Use Norton Ghost or similar software to copy the drive image to your new one, replace the old one, and you won't have to deal with the headaches of restoring your system after a drive failure.

Just installed seagate barracuda 250gb 6gb internal hard drive with a gigabyte ga-945pl-s3 mother board and it will only recognise 130Gig! been through the bios but nothing stands out to say enable larger...

The maximum hard drive you can install depends upon the BIOS. You MAY BE able to install a larger hard drive if the BIOS upgrade will allow it. I suggest you go to the Gigagyte WEB site to check on this possibility.

Unable to connect my pc to TV

The reason why your TV is showing no input from your laptop is because of the display resolution of your graphics card, which is higher than what the TV can handle.
What you can try is, when your system is powered up, just go to your display settings, then reduce the systems display resolution to--preferably 800x600, then go to where you normally select the output, and select 'Output to external monitor"...this should send the signal input to the monitor.
Most Laptop graphics display resolution are generally very powerful as compared to what the TVs can handle.
I have actually dealt with a no input signal like this before, and this was what I did.
Hope this helps.

Installing windows

1. Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

This one was fun. To install a hard drive larger than 137 gigabytes on your computer you need the following:

a motherboard, such as the Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 which support the 48 bit hard drive addressing. Only new motherboards can be counted on to support this.

Windows 2000 service pack 3 or later. Windows XP service pack 1 and greater have this support built in. I assume this isn't a problem with Linux at all...
