When i put 2Gb of ram..My PC keeps shuting down...is there any fix for that!?!?!?! Please help me


Every pc/laptop will only accept a certain amount of memory. Your probably overloading it. Check in your system info to see how much it can take. Also, make absolutely sure that you have the right memory stick for you pc!

I want to install a new motherboard what should i buy


Your motherboard is the main component to your computer, so if you're thinking of re-using your RAM and CPU, you'll have to make sure you get a motherboard with the same RAM type (ex. if you have DDR2 RAM, you'll have to get a DDR2 motherboard) and the same CPU socket. My recommendation is that you find a motherboard that fits inside your tower, and buy a processor and RAM that is compatible with your new motherboard. If your hard drives are SATA connections, you should be able to reuse those on a new motherboard, but if they are IDE (big, flat wire) then you'll need to made sure the new board can accommodate your IDE hard drives. CD ROMs are also mainly SATA now, so if you have an IDE CD rom drive and IDE hard drives, it will be difficult to find a NEW motherboard with more than one IDE connection, meaning you'll have to change jumper settings, or simply buy a SATA CD-rom drive.
As far as software goes, you'll most likely have to reinstall your operating system if the upgrade is a substantial one. Video card is another thing to consider. Your motherboard might be using the older AGP technology, whereas new motherboards are useing PCIe connections. So to sum it up, when you upgrade your motherboard, it affects a lot of other hardware, but if you simply swap your motherboard with something compatible with the rest of your hardware, it isn't really an upgrade.

Can I install a none sata ide hard drive in a Asus Cm1630-06


lilpolak

Most motherboards have one IDE port on this that you can run 2 IDE devices off of. Note the main reason for this IDE port is not all ROM drives are SATA yet but you can run hard drives off this port as well.

Let me know if you have any more questions or problems

HP Pavilion Media Center a1510 PC desktop, one long beep pause and one long beep keeps repeating, fans and lights working. Is it worth fixing?


One beep means a problem with your processor (CPU). You can try to reset it (there is(are) clip(s) on the side that hold it down to the socket). Unplug everything from your computer before opening. You may need to remove the heat sink on top of the CPU; get some thermal paste to put on the CPU before you replace it. Lift up the clip, make sure the CPU is correctly oriented (one corner is marked) and press it back down. Spread new thermal paste and replace the CPU cooler. Try rebooting the computer. If that doesn't work, you should try a new CPU - match to the socket on the motherboard. Unfortunately, if you use Windows, you will probably need to contact them to ensure that the OS key is valid.

I hope this helps.

(if your computer is really old or was cheap, replacing it with a new machine may be easier. Pull the old hard drive and either install it as a slave drive in the new machine or use a hard drive enclosure (IDE or SATA to USB or eSATA if that is on the new machine), a hard drive dock (SATA) or a IDE/SATA/USB dongle (that lets you connect a bare drive out in the open to the USB port) to get your data from the old computer.)

Turns on, then shuts down before anything shows on monitor


Is there more than one fan inside the computer? Did you double-check the connection from the fan to the motherboard? Sometimes a computer will shut down if it doesn't sense that the fan is turning on, to prevent the computer from overheating.

Emac 800mhz will shut off on it's own randomly. I'll press start button and it start up. This has been going on a few days now.


hi my name is wesley. ok it might be a broken or loose cable in your pc check and make sure they are all in properly then go into your bios witch when you boot up your pc it will say press f1 or delete to enter setup do that then look for pc health or cpu temprature if the temp is high the pc will auto shut down due to danger. you can fry your cpu so you might have to get a new system fan they not expensive and easy to install if the temprature is not the prob then replace a few cables starting with the cable that goes into your hard drive called an ide cable. your system temprature should be about 30 40 degrees usually higher than that it will auto shut off.

Need to know what type interface i'm using with the following two dives so i can upgrade with out expensive mistakes. they are both maxtor and the numbers i have are as follows : c: = 82100d3 d: =...


c = IDE (also known as PATA)

I can't find the other model documented anywhere but I would suspect it is IDE also.

If this is a desktop it likely does not require ECC ram. In most cases you can use ECC ram in systems that don't support parity checking but not vice versa. ECC memory is generally more expensive. With the computer model number or motherboard model number it could easily be determined if this system requires ECC memory..

Pc starts up and shuts down repeatedly and no video


First be sure that the ram (ecc)you have purchased is compatible with your motherboard and that it will take a total of 4 gig,make sure you earth yourself out on the case before going inside the pc (static electricity can damage electronic components)check that you have not accidentally loosened any data or power cables, check cpu & fan is seated correctly and working : then

  • put back the old ram and try booting up,(if still no good),
  • put things back to the way it was before the changes,
  • make sure everything is working as before (refer to the above)
  • trying the new ram, if ok
  • change cpu
  • this will identify if it is the ram the cpu, or some other problem
it is a good idea when upgrading the pc to do one thing at a time so that it is easier to identify any problems that crop up.

let me know how you get on
good luck

Computer shuts down problem


When you take the cover off and start up, are all of the fans spinning? If the CPU fan doesn't spin, the system will shut down soon after starting to prevent over heating the CPU
