Ppu is a part of cpu that processes specific data separatedly if you are on operative system enviroment you are talking of something related to graphycs components... but was this your question? or do you want help with your problem?

if you need help I need more info cuz I dont know what you did besides formatting an HD... did you installed a new os? Did you do it with a good installation CD? I coudnt know.

What I can tell you now is that POST has nothing to do with HD... the post should be ok if you boot with the HD disconnected...

In fact if you boot only with mother, micro and RAMs, some video adapter (integrated or external)... and of course power supply... post should be ok, otherwise you have hardware problems, most likely mother or ram... might be videoboard but its not that frecuent...

What you should do is just that, booting with basic hardware and see if its ok... if you can enter the bios restar normally and all that... IF NOT, try disconecting all cables and resetting bios... if you dont know how... take the lithium battery of the motherboard and move the (cmos or crtl) jumper to reset position and let it all like that for 10 minutes... (10 just to be completely sure) NO POWER SUPPLY.

THEN put the basic pieces back together and try booting... NO DISK NO NOTHING BUT BASICS...

If you still have problems you might have hardware problems and I sadly cant do anything from here... But if you succeed just connect HD and a cd reader and install any OS with a good working CD.

G luck

A Physics Processing Unit (PPU) is a dedicated microprocessor designed to handle the calculations of physics, especially in the physics engine of video games. Games wishing to take advantage of the PhysX PPU must use AGEIA's PhysX SDK.

What is the mobo model #? Did you recently install a PhysX card?

No vga input outputon n15235 motherboard


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the graphics card and clean the socket hope this helps

I have recently bought a samsung SATA spintpoint 1tb hdd. The hdd gets stuck at the post. It says the name and no of the drive but nothing else. I have to reboot. Controller issues with the Sil3112A?? ...


No, the controller is just fine - but make sure that the RAID setting is disabled.
If the hard disk can't go beyond POST then it is damaged. Test it this way: put it in anther functioning pc, then install in it this free program

Run the program and test the hard disk.

I picked up a discarded complete computer with Abit AS8-V motherboard and standard CPU. The entire assembly had been immersed in floodwater. After cleaning, drying, and waiting a few days I powered it up....


Simple test: disconnect the hard drive and the optical unit and try to boot in BIOS. If you can't then the first thing you should check is the memory, followed by the processor. If you can then the hard drive is dead.

Replaced battery, now goes to POST & unable to create RAID


BIOS needs set up again. Look @ hard drive setup in particular. If you have SATA drives the put them in IDE mode.

Adding a new hard drive


Hi,
It is possible that your hard drive is not S.M.A.R.T. capable, which simply means that you most likely wont be forewarned when your hard drive is about to fail. To prevent this S.M.A.R.T. message, check in your CMOS setup(by pressing DEL usually) when your PC starts up. Go through the list of BIOS settings until you find a setting to enable/disable S.M.A.R.T for hard drives. This is most likely enabled for your board. If so, disable the S.M.A.R.T. feature, then save these settings and restart your pc.
For any clarification or further assistance, please don't hesitate to post another message.
Hope this sorts your problem.

Im having serious probs here


first, ensure that only one master hard drive is connected (also disconnect cdrom(s). Next, at startup press the key (DEL or F2) to BIOS screen. then make sure that only the master hard drive in position 1 is listed or choose AUTO detect. now reboot and report if any progress. If no further progress, then master hard drive has failed somehow, but to be certain, try that drive on another pc as a slave just to test spin-up.
