An old IBM computer that has been stripped and junked only to be dragged in by your grandson to be junked again. Threy haven't made an IBM Netvista in a long time, long enough that IBM sold off the division to the Chinese and is now known as Lenova. The Netvista's had a bad rep as they came with defective capacitors that eventually bulged and leaked

When I start the computer, it only last about 1 minute turned on, how can I fix it?


First the P4VM8 motherboard if a good board and I have used many in the last few years.
I will need to know exactly what the unit is doing, before I can go about giving you help.

Thing you should check, (A) Make sure your power supply is working correctly and that you have all connection made correct to the board.
(B) You should have a 12 Volt 4 Pin connection for video, which must be plugged in to the board.
(C) Try removing and reseating the CPU and memory, using only one stick to check the unit with.
Note... All memory must be the same clock speed.
(D) Diagnosing the motherboard.... Only use the bare minimum necessary to check the board. Example, if you have onboard video, don’t use a video card. Disconnect all external devices, such as external USB devices, flash cards, ext. Hard drives, ect.
Look close at the board around the processor and inspect the caps. for leakage or crowning.
Give this a shot and get back to me with a comment if you need further help.
Happy Holidays.

Emachine will not power up


By nothing else, from a technical standpoint this would mean literally nothing, the CPU fan, power supply fan, aux fan, disk drive not spinning up, etc. My experience with EMachines is their motherboards aint the best, have been known to take out hard drives and other peripherals to the mother board. If you are technically inclined the first thing to do is to bare out the system, Power Supply attached to the Mother Board w/ Cpu Monitor and Keyboard no Hard Drive and no Non esential boards installed, very carefully remove the memory and start it up all should be fine except it should give you a long beep from the PC Speaker indicating the Mother Board is aware there is no memory installed if it will not do this most basic of tests this is not good. If it does give you a health beep continue to install one item at a time, first the memory, the display should, if working, tell you there is a boot failure, of course, the hard drive is not connected, do so and keep on testing. Without knowing what type of mother board you have, most likely an AT with integrated peripherials the process to determine exactly what the problem is would take hands on trouble shooting. If you dont get the beep indicating the mother board cant determine if memory is installed and truley nothing else is on it is more likely the mother board. There are several good ones online that will fit your case if you want to go this route. Or is it time to upgrade ?

I want to expand my memory, so I went to Fry's with my computer model number and bought a 1Gig memory card, brought it home and the pin configuration doesn't match. The one I bought has two rows of pi


Go to http:\\www.pby.com and look at the memory configurator. You will be asked about your system (make and model). They will then advise you of the specific part number for your memory. Keep in mind, you should never expand upon existing memory. It is always better to replace the memory completely so you don't have to deal with any manufacturing conflicts. Take your new found part number and plug it in at amazon.com

To replace 1 GB of memory completely should cost about $45.00 USD.

No signal to monitor when booting.


(1) Remove memory from mother board and start the system if you happen to listen long beep then RAM is not working properly.
(2) Clean RAM conducting area on mother board with clean cotton cloth, put one peice of RAM and test and check the othe peice also, if working you could any sign display . Before doing all these check mother board any LED is glowing if so your SMPS is working after you turn on UPS.

(3) Check for all proper connection for all cables. Have you connected video cable of monitor to mother board VGA (it will not work because it is disabled as soon as you installed XFX GeForce 8800 GT), your viedo output only will come through XFX GeForce 8800 GT VGA port.

(4) If propelm persits Deassmble complete the system and reassmble & do n't connect HDD, DVD, floppy. Cehck with bare mother baord, processor, RAM (put one picese at a time) by connecting viedo cable of monitor

Take it down to bare bones (power adapter, mother board, memory and display). If it still acts the same way, it's probably the mother board. ;o(

Samsung memory


Could be, I bought memory for my computer on ebay, it specied RAM for Dell Dimension 23oo,2400 ect. The memory fit in the slot right but computer wouldn't boot up which ment it wasn't compatiable. I sent it back and got a refund. When buying memory on ebay do two things: Contact seller and make sure it is compatible with your system, then make sure there is a return policy. If you can't get a refund and you think this is a fake report. Also if payed through paypal report to them too.
