Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Bought the computer (with ECS HT 2000 Dual DDR 800 MB) 2 months ago. Two weeks into it, the screen goes black; but the ''no signal'' that normally appears in the middle of the screen, when the computer is off and the monitor remains on, did not appear... The only solution left was to shut it down. Rebooted it, all returned to normal. Yesterday, it did it again as I was preparing to back up my work on CD. Hum!... This time I switched monitors, but no difference; the other monitor remained black. I Plugged the monitor that was on that computer onto another computer, it operated fine. Therefore, I had no choice but to switch off the computer. I rebooted it, but the monitor remained black. Waited 15 minutes, turned on the computer again, this time the monitor came back on. Went to my dealer, he benched it (turned it on) for 3 hours and charged me $65. to tell me that it did not do the problem. It's not as if the screen goes squiggly or freezes up; this is undoubtedly a hardware problem, not a software problem. What is Your suggestion?

Send the dealer a letter informaing him that you intend to file a small claims action against him to recover the $65 and the cost of the computer, because it is defective.

Also notify him that he has 15 days to respond. Then file a small claims action against him to recover those damages.

It would be in your best interest to try to find out what kind of warranty he offers with machines that he sells

Seems to me a RAM failure or dirty contact problem.If the RAM contact is only dirty, then it will fall down to a maintenance service, depending on agreed conditions, this usually falls under maintenance service and they may charged you for it.

But if hardware failure with no abuse from you then warranty claims should apply, based on agreed conditions. Usual practices, they should replace it free of charge, for hardware and troubleshooting.

And still your issue is still not been resolve, they should test it many times. Since it should appear upon booting. They have to test it boot up then shutdown and again to see whether it appears.
If they don't encounter it, then suspect the RAM or peripheral card connection problem or Mboard grounded.

    Usual practice, on warranty claims for hardware is one year. Also checks for components warranty.

I use samsung netbook nc110, it works normally until I play a video and the screen goes black and won't come back to normal. I bought it 9 months ago and this begin happening last week. Any solutions?


You can use an external monitor to test it. If the external screen does not display anything, then your GPU and or motherboard is dying. If your netbook works good with the external monitor, then your screen is dead.
You can check the operating system and application using this Norton Utilities:

Need manual for my motherboard


Any idea of what desktop computer it came out of?

My intel states it is an ECS (Elitegroup Computer Systems) MCP61PM-AM mobo, made for Gateway/Acer desktop computers,
(Acer bought out Gateway), Packard-Bell, and other desktop computer manufacturers.

Stating;

1) HT 2000
HT stands for Hyperthreading Technology. Used by AMD and Intel.
Using 2000 along with HT, denotes it is an AMD processor using HT.
Processor can move data back, and forth, up to 2000 MegaTransfers per Second. (2000MT/s)

2) MCP stands for Media and Communications Processor.
Nvidia's Northbridge, so to speak,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29

Recent Developments;
"Another example of this kind of change is Nvidia's nForce3 chipset for AMD64 systems that is a single chip. It combines all of the features of a normal southbridge with an AGP port and connects directly to the CPU. On nForce4 boards they consider this to be an MCP (Media Communications Processor)."

The Nvidia MCP61 is the GeForce 6150SE,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6150SE

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_6_.286xxx.29_series

The PM stands for Post Meridian. The AM stands for Ante Meridian.
In otherwords good for Night to Day.

Just some gobbelity-goop the mobo manufacturer added.

Is it an ECS MCP61PM-AM mobo? (MOtherBOard),

http://www.ascendtech.us/ecs-mcp61pm-am-dual-core-am2-motherboard_i_mb64ecsmcp61pma.aspx

Scroll the page down.

At any rate, what info do you need?
What Ram Memory is used, and how much?
What the pinout is for the Front Panel header on the mobo?
What Processors can be used?

Please state in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

[By the way. If it is out of a Peckerd Bell computer, I find them LESS THAN. Support for a user? Sure for $$$$$$ ]

What type of dual core processor can I use for my dc7600?


The motherboard for the dc7600 has an Intel LGA775 processor socket. However, not all LGA775 processors are compatible with the motherboard. For the small form factor, the following CPUs are supported: Intel Celeron D Processors:
Intel Celeron D 331 Processor (2.66-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 336 Processor (2.80-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 346 Processor (3.06-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB)
Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology:
Intel Pentium 4 521 Processor (2.8-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 524 Processor (3.06-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 541 Processor (3.2-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 620 Processor (2.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 630 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 631 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 640 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 641 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 650 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 651 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 661 Processor (3.6-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) or
Intel Pentium D Dual Core Processors:
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 915 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 925 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 930 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 945 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

Unfortunately, these are old processors and I don't see any available new. Newegg.com lists a couple available as refurbished. You may be better off getting a new computer with either a Intel I3 or current AMD processor.

I wish that I had better news for you.

(do not attempt to use a CPU that your motherboard doesn't support. It probably won't boot.)

HP Pavilion Media Center PC not detecting memory in slots 3 & 4.All memory works in slots 1 &2.Memory is all the same.


Info from the manual:

Memory configurations

You can install 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1GB DDR SDRAM DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

• Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs

using the recommended configurations.

• Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB

(Front Side Bus). Refer to the Memory frequency/CPU FSB

synchronization table on the next page.

• This motherboard does not support double-sided 16-bit DDR DIMMs.

• Do not create a three-DIMM configuration in dual-channel mode. The
third DIMM is ignored in the dual-channel operation.

Hello tainted feat,

Please download DriverSweeper:

Reboot into SafeMode and select the Nvidia drivers and PhysX. Select only those. Do not delete the chipset drivers. Reboot into normal mode and then go here to download drivers.

This should work. Good luck

    the ram memory might not be compatible from your motherboard, you should have find it on the list of your motherboard manual. the manual have the list of memory cards' qualified brand. likewise, try to install this to ther slot if the problem still occurs then you may return to your vendor and inform them about the specs and kind of your motherboard and the problem you are encountering so that they will give you the right memory card to use. you can also ugrade your bios thru the internet so that you don't need to return this item.
