Heeeeelp.... im drowning in tiny problem

Hi, (dont smirk) i found a tiny computer/ desktop. i think its 1999 or 2000, anyway i was interested to see if it works. So I had a mess around with it on weekend. It had no harddrive so i rigged my 20gig up from my current (reconditioned dell). Once turned on the monitor wouldnt fire up and it just bleeped for etenrnity and sounded rough, lol. then i unplugged it all and had a mess about, i.e. switched a few jumpers over and back, took bios battery out and checked all card slots etc was in place. retstarted and it sounded promising, this time it beeped once, yay :) but still problem of monitor not firing up?? so... then i have switched power box with spare i had to check if it was power supply. it was exactly the same as before, so im pretty sure now the power supply was fine. Of course im now thinking (motherboard) and as a last ditched attempt i thought id ask for help? as i am also on net seeing if i could find a downloadable user manual for this heap a croc... haha any ideas, anthony :)

Anthony,

You could try a Graphics card (AGP, or PCI) if you have one available, as the on board graphics could be the hardware causing the fault.

You mention that you get no video signal to the monitor, do you have speakers connected and if so do you hear any sound out of them (not the pezio on the MoBo) when you boot this PC?

What type of video card may I order to go in this unit


hi, im new with the whole computer knowledge but i have done some research seeing as i have this comp as well. just like me your needing to upgrade the comp to be more sufficient and up to par with todays upgrades seeing as this comp is old and prolly got it at Best Buy. but if your going to do some heavy media, gaming etc. i suggest getting a new comp that is up to date with todays changes. only reason why is the video card you require for this comp is a PCI which i have read is the lowest quality and probably soon to be obsolete that many programs dont support anymore. dont get me wrong you can still buy them, but dont expect high quality performance. remember you need a PCI not PCI Express (PCIE) to fit the slot that your motherboard has. ive done alot of searches for PCI video cards, i suggest just to google it or check newegg.com. im still actually looking around myself. im sure if you have this comp your also looking for an inexpensive part. anyways i hope this helped.

my upgrades are:
500 hard drive
60 slave
2g memory

No sound after converting video on sansa


yes, your description is long, and i think i understand what you mean. maybe you just convert them in the wrong format, you have to convert them to mp3 format.
If you have any difficulties in search, download or convert video/audio, You may try this powerful and easy-to-use video/audio converter. It can help you convert video/audio, my friends recommend it to me, and it’s easy to use and works pretty well for me.

My home button wont work i press it and it doesnt do nothing i have the ipod touch 1st generation


hi guys dont worry about it. its not really a major problem because sometimes the ipod has really really tiny malfunctions like this and no, im not from the apple store so dont ask anyway all you have to is this: plug in your ipod to the computer using the usb cable. now it should say that it is syncing if not, sync your ipod. while it is syncing, press cancel sync on your ipod touch and it should cancel and take you back to the home screen. This shouldnt happen again but if it does, at least you have a way to return to your home menu cya :)
