You're going to have to give us more information about what you are looking to do. If you are wanting to know how to add/remove your processor: If the heat-sink and fan are removed, there is a little clasp or lever you have to undo/push down and up to unlatch the processor. After that, you are going to VERY CAREFULLY remove the processor from the slot. If you need to add the processor, place the processor down on the CPU seating with the lever/clasp undone. Make sure you line up the arrow on the corner of the CPU to the arrow on the motherboard. Press the clasp/lever down and latch it into place.

How do I get the star on Mysterious Mountain Side on Tall Tall Mountain?

it kinda hard to describe where the wall is but when you are climbing the mountain and you have to long jump past the water fall to get to the other side and there should be a little cloud guy to your right and on the wall there should be a hidden wall there that you can jump into it and you will find a slide and its a fairly difficult one to get down.

My kitchenaid food processor won't work

Does the actuator push down far enough to catch the button at the bottom? I repaired one simply by adding a vinyl screw cover to the top of the button so it was tall enough to be reached by the actuator.

I have an acer m5802 what is the best video card I can upgrade to. Thank.

Acer Aspire M5802?

Let's look at the specs;

A) Intel Core2 Duo processor, or Intel Core2 Quad processor.

B) Intel G43 Express motherboard chipset.

C) PCI-Express graphics expansion slot that is the 2.0 version

D) 500 Watt Power Supply

Just about any Ol' graphics card you desire. As long as a 500 Watt power supply is enough power, the sky's the limit.

Now,......are we talking the BEST?

There's a lot of pro's and con's whether everyone will agree with my choice, but I'll explain why I chose this graphics card.


A) 1GB of GDDR5 graphics ram memory

B) 256-bit interface

C) 336 Stream Processors

D) The Core Clock can run up to 763MHz.

E) The Memory Clock can run up to 3800MegaHertz

F) The Shader Clock can run up to 1526MHz.

G) DirectX 11

If you want to see characters sweat on a 30 inch or better monitor, this baby will do it easily.
Frame rate lag? Bahahahahahaha! Nope!

Plus the price. Best Bang for the Buck, IMHO.

Just make sure you have two slots available side by side. This card uses two slots in width.
Length? Your computer case is 180MM wide, 443mm long, and 373MM tall.

(That's 7.08661 inches wide by 17.4409 inches long by 14.6850 inches tall.
Or 7 and 7/8ths inches wide by 17 and 7/16ths inches long by 14 and 11/16ths tall )

The graphics card fits down the length of the computer. It is 8 and 1/4 inches long, (8.25),
4 and 3/8ths tall, approximately. (4.376)

Make sure you have at least 2GB's of ram memory though.

My pc whines when i play a video or game or louder when uploading a video and play games.

A) Processor fan speeds up to cool the Processor.
Gaming, a video, and uploading requires more Processor 'power'.

A Processor has a Thermal Limit. A temperature it can reach, and no more.
Going past this thermal limit would burn the Processor up.
The Processor fan speeds up, to keep the Processor below this thermal limit.

(If the Processor temperature exceeds the thermal limit, the Processor is turned off. BIOS turns it off)

The Processor fan is usually one of two methods used.

1) A fan sitting on top of the Heatsink, which sits on top of the Processor's case,

Typical Heatsink/Fan combo,

2) A computer case fan in the front, that pushes air through a plastic shroud, which envelopes the Heatsink, sitting on top of the Processor.

Perhaps the fan's bearings are going out.

Bad fan bearings will let the fan shaft tilt to one side, and the fan's center hub will scrape on the fan motor.

This can cause a whining sound.
(Goes for examples 1 and 2 above)

Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions observed, see if you can gently rock the fan's blades up, and down.
NO perceptible movement should be observed, nor felt.

If so this fan needs to be replaced.

If the inside of the computer is dirty, the added 'Gunk', (Dust, dirt, hair, you name it), will cause the fan blades to be unbalanced.
This will make the fan tilt to one side also.

Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions observed, computer case open, use a can of compressed air for computers, and clean the inside of the computer out.

May require two cans.
May also require that you use Q-tips to disturb the outer layer of the 'Gunk', so that the can of air can remove it.

(Would also like to add:

The can of compressed air for computers comes with a plastic 'straw'.
The straw is attached to the nozzle of the can of air, when using it.

A Power Supply should have the inside of it's case cleaned also.
The cooling components for a Power Supply, are it's fan, and internal Heatsink's used inside.

[ Typical construction of a Heatsink is a plate of metal, with tall, thin fins protruding from it.

The plate of metal absorbs heat from whatever object it is placed against, and the tall, thin fins absorb heat from the plate of metal.

The tall, thin fins then radiate the heat away.

If a fan is used in conjunction with a Heatsink, (Such as a Power Supply, or Processor), the air flow from the fan helps to carry heat away from the fins ]

When the fan blades, center hub, and surrounding shroud are coated with Gunk, and the Heatsink's inside a Power Supply, their cooling capacity drops TREMENDOUSLY.

This causes the Power Supply to overheat.
Heat = Wasted Energy.

The Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power, and eventually cannot.
Components inside the Power Supply fail, and the Power Supply fails.
(As in Kaput)

The Power Supply's case has ventilation holes, on the case side inside the computer.
The plastic straw of the compressed air for computers, is inserted into the top ventilation holes, and air is shot in. (One ventilation hole at a time)

The straw is aimed in a slightly downward fashion.
Then the straw is used in the lower ventilation holes, and then on the bottom ventilation holes.

HOLD onto the plastic straw with one hand, and the compressed air for computers with the other hand.
The straw can shoot off of the can of air's nozzle, and wind up inside the Power Supply's case.

This = NO

No go to the back of the Power Supply, and use Q-tips to get into the crevice where the fan blades meet the center hub.

Also on the edges of the blades, and the surrounding shroud around the blades.

You just need to disturb the outer layer of Gunk, so the air can remove it.
Shoot air past the fan into the Power Supply case also.

You won't get the inside of the Power Supply perfectly clean, but you will extend the life of the Power Supply greatly.

The inside of the computer, and the inside of the Power Supply, should be cleaned on a regular basis as needed.

Different scenarios require more frequent cleaning, or less frequent cleaning.
Only you will know, when you check inside your computer on a regular basis.

You can be the best housekeeper in the world, but even in pristine homes, and businesses, the inside of a computer, (And Power Supply), gets dirty.

(Carpet deodorizer can clog a computer too. It's a fine dust)

If the inside of your computer is kept pristine clean, and you have No fan bearing problems, then your Harddrive is on it's way out.

This explains the workings inside a Harddrive,

My processor is making a strange noise.The fans are clean and so is the processor. The noise started out with the fans running constant. So we cleaned it and now it makes a quieter but constant noise.

Processor is clean?

Hmmm, are you sure you aren't referring to the Heatsink, sitting on top of the Processor's case?

One example of a typical Heatsink/Fan combo,

[Typical construction of a Heatsink is a flat plate of metal, with tall, thin fins protruding from it.

The plate of metal absorbs heat from whatever object it is placed against, and the tall, thin fins absorb the heat from the plate, whereupon the fins radiate the heat away.

A Processor isn't the only hardware component inside a personal computer, that utilizes a Heatsink.

A Heatsink is also utilized inside a Power Supply, (Usually more than one Heatsink), and on graphics cards.
Some high-performance ram memory modules, ('Stick'), may also use a type of Heatsink. (Heat Spreader ]

In your reference, "The fans are clean, and so is the Processor", I hope this isn't an actual reference that the top of the Processor's case is clean.

There Absolutely MUST be thermal paste, used in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink.

The top of a Processor's case, and the bottom of a Heatsink are not perfectly smooth. A microscopic view would reveal, 'Hills, Valleys, and Pit holes'

These minute imperfections create air pockets, in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink.

Air is an Insulator, not a Conductor.

Thermal paste fills these imperfections, and is an excellent conductor.
Conducts heat from the top of the Processor's case, to the bottom of the Heatsink.

If your Processor has a thermal pad, (Usually whitish in color, and looks just like the description. A flat Pad), suggest you take it off, and throw it at the cat.

Thermal pads are Junk!

Thermal paste, with a one Processor application, averages around $5.
NEVER run a Processor without thermal paste, and ensure that the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, are Perfectly clean.

(Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions observed. A Processor is the MOST susceptible hardware component in a computer, to Static shock)

I use an old credit card to scrape the old thermal paste from the Processor, and Heatsink. It's plastic so it won't scratch, nor transfer Static electricity.

I then follow with Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol.
91 percent, (91%), alcohol is best. 70 percent will do in a pinch.

I advise not using 50/50. (91 percent alcohol, 9 percent water. 70 percent alcohol, 30 percent water, and so on)

Isopropyl Alcohol is also known as Rubbing Alcohol.

Isopropyl Alcohol is Extremely Flammable!
Use in a WELL ventilated room with no sparks, or flames present ]

It may take a few Q-tips, as the thermal paste residue may be a sticky mess.
HAS to be Thoroughly clean, before applying new, fresh thermal paste.

Correct method for applying thermal paste, (Also referred to as thermal grease),

Ensure that the Heatsink is sitting FLAT on top of the Processor.
Slightly tilted will NOT work.

It is for this reason I dismount the motherboard from the computer case, and from a side view, look across at the mounting of the Heatsink, to the top of the Processor's case.

No daylight must be showing in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink.
The Heatsink must be sitting perfectly flat, on the top of the Processor's case.

The only time I have heard of a Processor making a noise, is when it is close to failing. (Quit, Die, Kaput)
The noise may be Taps, or a french(?) retreat song, that escapes me at the moment.
(Perhaps it's a song from Bach, or Trachosky, or Mozart)

Some computers use a computer case fan in the front, to push air through a plastic shroud, which encases the Heatsink.

Most computers use a Fan on top of the Heatsink.

In this case, are you sure the wires that provide power to the Processor fan, aren't being hit by the Processor fan blades?

Also, have you checked the Processor fan for bad bearings?

Gently lift up on one side of the Processor's fan blades.
Does the fan seem tight in the bearings, or loose?

If the bearings are bad, it will allow the fan's center hub to tilt to one side, and scrape.

After about 4-5 minutes of operation, the computer shuts off unexpectedly.Everything else appears to work OK, internet access, etc. It doesn't appear to be overheating, but can't be sure.

A computer that shuts off unexpectedly is most of the time caused by heat. Check if the fan in the power supply is working fine by checking the back of the computer. You can take out the CPU too, clean it properly before adding a new layer of thermal paste. In this way, the heating issue will be eliminated.
