Hello everyone. Just wondering do I need an optical drive for my brand new pic I just built? And I just installed my motherboard and the graphics card together but nothing is working on the screen.


use the cd that came with the mother board as it has all the drivers to make the mother board work and to line up the graphic card
if the was a cd for the card run that as well
other than that talk to a IT geek shop and get ideas

I dropped my T4220 and now the screen is blank and its beeping. There are no visible cracks on the screen or the casing... The fan is on and nothing else :( Any help pls...


There could be anything from a wire off to a hair line crack on the mother board. If nothing much works apart from the fan, it is possible the mother board is now damaged.

Gigabyte GA-945GCMX-S2 Motherboard having display..


At first I thought your screen went black during the start up process. After seeing the bios screen. In which case I would've said it was a bios setting for the display. Then I realized that I think you mean that their is no display at all. When you push the power button. Only the monitor led light. So, it may be a problem with your RAM stick/s. You should make sure that they are properly seated in the mother board. If they are new, make sure they are compatible with that motherboard. If you can you should swap them out with known good ram sticks. You could also try installing a video card and see if you can get display to work through that one. Make sure your main power supply wire connector is pushed in all the way. Swap the power supply with a known good one if you can. If still can't get it to work you may want to take the motherboard out and inspect it for burns, cracks, and anything that doesn't look right. Maybe contact the manufacturer of the motherboard and ask them what you can check. hope this helps.

Tv only turns on, will go to soyo screen then black screen. when you can get the menu it only has symbles and no words can not turn off with out unplugging. never has a picture


Sounds like the Main Mother Board is the problem. Basically, it's the brain inside the TV. Controls and functions is that board's job.
Soyo parts are hard to come by. You can try running the number off the mother board on the internet and maybe a supplier will pop up.
Their Soyo.com web site isn't working. So, I'm thing they maybe out of business.
If you have some electronic experance and if your lucky, the heatsink on the chip processor is the problem.

My dell was hit by lightning and now i cant get it to boot up


hi there;

really,lightning has a great power voltages supply,thousand of volts was supplied in one strikes of lightning.this depend how much voltage was induces on your computer,mostly your avr and psu might be damage by checking if there is power determining the fans inside avr and psu if running maybe you have the power,and some led light are blinking ,some how to be sure you can use multi tester if you have knowledge on this.basic approach if you have black out screen and good power supply,pull out ide cable of hardisk and cd room from mother board,you can run pc w/o them to check your start windows if will open run your pc if still black screen,take another video card and memory card try to replace them and rn your pc,if windows open fine if not maybe you have damage the mother board from lightning.replacing defective devices can put back your windows open.best regards

Sounds like your hard drive has crashed. If you are getting an audible click from the hard drive, it is the arm hitting. Even then, sometimes you can get them to boot up on occasion.

The hard drive/SATA issue would depend on your motherboard connection. I think that there may be adapters to convert from a IDE to a SATA, but I haven't ever used one.

Broken flat screen tv


If you have not yet fixed this and haven't trashed the set I may have a solution.

I have a 50HP66 that has a good screen but bad sustain boards.

I will buy the boards from you...Easy to remove. Then you can use that money to buy a new TV.

Fixing a cracked screen is not practical. IE. Replacing the whole screen.

These sets are made to be sent to the land fill when the warranty is up.

Maybe we should have our lawmakers force companies to have minimum warranties for large toxic products that end up in the trash. Then they might make them last more than a year.

I have to assume you mean
Will the cooling fans run if it is still powered by mother board and disconencted from the mount ,such as processor or chipset ??

Yes it would , but is a very dangerous thing to do ,as it could easily short against anything within the case
Be more specific with your problem maybe someone can help you better
