    Can you tell me more about the leak, try to locate the source of the leak. Always look for the highest location that you can find the moisture.

Pipe wrenches. and access should be gained through the cabinet doors beneath the sink. it prolly is your p-trap just go get a new one and make sure it is the same material and color as the old one is.

Ill be playing a video online off youtube or playing a massive online game like World of warcraft and mid game or halfway through the program or video will freeze and the sound stalls like a motor...

The two main causes of this kind of malfunction are:

1. Network latency or disruption. The videos will stop and restart later, possibly in a "fit and start" pattern.

If this were the case, though, you should also experience troubles with ordinary navigation, Skype calls and so on, and you say nothing of this. So I'm afraid it's case

2. Hardware problem of the video card. The fact that it happens when the card is working heavily, strongly indicates that it is a cooling problem (you may notice the problem happening more often when it's warm, and disappearing with strong air conditioning, for example). With newer and hotter cards, requiring active cooling, it may be caused by a fan which is either disconnected, burned, or jammed by some wire or connector. Open the case and inspect the graphic card: if it has a fan installed, and YouTube is running, verify it is blowing air. If it is not moving, try nudging it very gently with a finger (quickly removing the finger from the fan blades). Loose cables jamming the fans are easily fixed by taping cables somewhere safe. Broken fans require replacement.
Another possibility, which needs experienced help, is a faulty or dried-and-flaked-off thermal coupling between graphic card GPU and heat sink (if there is one). Just unassembling the sink, cleaning GPU and sink, and properly applying a new layer of thermal coupling grease solves this kind of problems.

My screen blanks every hour approx, sometimes it will not com back on. When switched off and back on a msg from windows states my graphics card has recovered from a fatal error. I have a Compaq presario...

first try to clean the video card pins, using a clean paper then swipe it on the pins. the clean also the slot for the video card. then if it still error try to use a hot air on the I.C. the I.C. on where the heat sink is locate disassemble the heat sink on the video card then use hot air carefully then test it again. thats the final solution for a problem on a video card. hope this may help

Loud gpu fan makes a buzzing noise that is very annoying otherwise works fine

see if there are any wires that are touching the GPU or its heat sink. Also see if there is any lose screw on the GPU assembly. or if the heat sink is lose. A lose screw or heat sink may be fatal for the health of your graphic card.

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT code 43

Most likely you will want to try and update the driver for the grahics card maybe even uninstall the device and reinstall it will be a big difference. I also suggest trying this before the driver update.... try to do a system restore back to the point where you think it last worked it could have just been another program that is interfering with it. Be sure to save your game files under your game folder on a flash drive incase it uninstalls your progress of it. If you need help doing that let me know ill explain more on how to keep the game files and such. Be sure to update the driver later on. Lastly i would check and make sure the fan is working...or heat sink on the graphics card isn't getting to hot that could be another cause to the problem goodluck!!

Where can I get a replacement cooling fan an NVidia Quadro4 750

I had a problem with the fan/heat sink assembly on an nVidia GeForce 5500 FX card a year ago. The card was in a multimedia computer and had lots of running hours on the fan, and the fan's sleeve bearings were shot, causing it to rattle. Failure of the fan seemed imminent, and before it did so and damaged the GPU chip on the card, I decided to fix it. Unfortunately, nVidia had used many different styles of fan/heat sink assemblies on this product, all of which were apparently obsolete. On closer inspection, however, one could see that the original fan on the chip cooler assembly was the core from a Sunon KD1204PFB1 12VDC/1.4W 40mm sleeve bearing brushless tubeaxial fan. One could also clearly see where the three struts were cut to remove the fan from its rectangular housing. The fan was glued to a clear plastic 3-tab mounting "spider", which, in turn, was attached to the heat sink with three small screws.

Here's what I did to fix mine; perhaps a similar approach will work for you.

1. Remove the video card from the computer.

2. Unplug the fan connector. On some cards the fan is plugged into a 2-pin header on the card, while on others it is connected to +12V via a Molex-type disk drive supply tap.

3. Remove three small flat head Phillips screws and lift fan assembly off heat sink. You will need a #0 Phillips driver or small jeweler-type crosspoint driver. DON'T LOSE THE SCREWS!

4. Very carefully pry fan from the clear plastic mounting spider. Most likely, it has been secured in the factory with some type of cyanoacrylate adhesive, i.e., "Crazy Glue". Take care not to crack the spider, as you will need to reuse it. It is better to peel the label off the back of the fan motor, than try to get the entire fan assembly off at once.

5. Clean up cyanoacrylate glue residue from spider by carefully grinding with an elliptical or spherical burr in a Dremel tool, to produce a flat surface.

6. Get a similar replacement fan. In this case we'll use a Sunon KDE1204PFVX 12VDC/1.9W 9.5CFM, 40x40x10mm MagLev bearing fan. (Ordered from Jameco Electronics, Belmont, California, about $7+tax & shipping. It costs about $2 more than the sleeve bearing OEM equivalent, but the MagLev bearings should outlast the computer by decades.) Cut the fan core out of the duct housing in a similar fashion to the original. Be careful not to snip the wires.

7. Align the fan motor cable with the cable guide tab on the spider, to route the cable away from the hub and keep it out of the fan blades.

8. Use a small blob of hot-melt glue to secure the fan onto the plastic spider. Press the fan gently against the spider until the glue solidifies, between your thumb and index finger.

9. Install the motor assembly on the heat sink with the three small screws. Route the motor cable between the heat sink fins as before. (The original cable had electrical tape wrapped around it where it passed between the fins, but I deemed it unnecessary to duplicate this. If the chip were to get too hot, it would probably cause the hot melt glue to fail, as well as cook the PC board anyway. In normal operation the heat sink fins stay close to room temperature.)

10. Connect the motor wires to the original connector, matching wire colors. (red = +12V, black = ground) If connecting to a Molex-type disk drive power tap, note that +12V is on the yellow wire.

11. Reinstall the card in the computer, connect the fan to the power supply, and power it up to verify that it spins. If everything looks good, button up the computer and you're done.

What is a thermal paste?

hi im josh in cebu phils. may i help you? Thermal grease (also called thermal compound, heat paste, heat transfer compound, thermal paste, or heat sink compound) is a fluid substance, originally with properties akin to grease, which increases the thermal conductivity of a thermal interface (by compensating for the irregular surfaces of the components). In electronics, it is often used to aid a component's thermal dissipation via a heat sink. you can buy this in any pc hardware distributor. i looks lihe an ointment. Good luck i hope i helped you.

Vaio graphic card fault

You can't. You will need to buy a new motherboard. The solder contacts are between the top of the board and the bottom of the chip so you can't even see them.
Rarely (as with the XBox red ring repair) you can apply an even force to the top of the chip to try and get it to contact. If you’re lucky and the motherboard boots then let the chip overheat for about 20 minutes (i.e. no heat sink or fans attached to the graphics chip) which should reflow the solder.
To be honest though, this is unlikely to work on anything but the XBox as it does not have a proper heat sink and plate under the PCB to clamp it to. This is in fact what causes the problem.
With so much demand for 'smallness' these days, computer manufactures are not allowing the space for air flow or heat sinks to cool these powerful chipsets. This is especially true of Nvidia that build superb graphics cards but they do get hot. This is not Nvidia's fault as if you buy a graphics card for a PC it is already housed with a fan all designed by Nvidia and I have never had one fail on me in 10 years. Laptop company's though only buy the chipset's and install them onto their own motherboards without thinking too much about the quality build and lifetime of the system rather than how small and lightweight it will be.
If you want a system with a decent graphics card then buy a PC. If you really need a laptop then I can only recommend one from the HP business range as they are built for work and not entertainment so doesn’t die easily.
Before you give up though and sling it out, put a sheet of steel over the whole board so that it is only touching the top of the graphics chip and try heating it (moderately) with a paint stripper heat gun. Make sure you let it cool totally before moving though as you will have all the tiny SMT (surface mount technology) resistors falling off. I have fixed about 4 out of 10 this way and the longest one lasted for was 4 months and packed up again so the odds are bad with a bleak future ahead and it's more likely you'll melt the PCB first anyway! But if it's going in the bin and your bored...
Hope this info helps someone thinking of buying a laptop anyway.

I am Facing Some Serious Problems with Every games..

its excess heat check the nvidia monitor if it exceeds 65-70 degrees celcius.Firstly take precautions turn off computer from main switch press power button for 5-10 seconds make your hand touch the surface of the unpainted metal part to discharge static, Remove card (Found in manual).If it seems quite hot you can remove the heat sink by pressing in the plastic clips on the bottom and dust it off with a medium paint brush, BECAREFUL OF THE POWER CORD. you could use compressed air and blow under the heat sink and see to dust it off
