Hi, I've opened up my xbox360, only to find that the memory chips don not have a rubbery material on the memory chips..What does this mean?? and should I still go ahead and put the cut up erasers on memory chips??

To be honest, you shouldnt have opened your xbox 360 in the first place because now you voided your warranty. Also, i dont think it means anything.

Mather board Gigabyte Ga-G41M CMOS checksum error -Defaults loaded and keyboard and Mouse are not working


Replace the battery and make sure it has a good connection in it's seat. Download and reflash the BIOS again. The original download file may have been corrpted. If those steps don't fix it then there are only a couple remaining things that could be happening:

1) Bad CMOS memory chip. This does happen. It's a small, couple K battery backed chip. The chip itself, mainboard tracings or circuitry leading to it could go bad or be defective.

2) Mainboard is shorting on the case somewhere. The tracings on the mainboard can definately short/ground or have periodic shorts causing the cmos memory to become corrupt.

3) Something electromagnetic is effecting the CMOS memory. A poorly shielded fan or other magnetic source is wiping out the CMOS memory periodically. You don't have like a refridgerator magnet on the side of the case do you? :D

4) Temperature. If for some reason your mainboard has a hot-spot, excessive temperatures for the CMOS chip can cause it's contents to scramble.

5) Unstable power. If one of your voltage rails from the PSU is bad, it can wipe CMOS memory contents. Get a hardware monitor and let it run to watch voltage ranges.

6) BIOS virus. Some virus attack the BIOS/CMOS memory space. Run a full scan and if you cannot afford a good virus program, try AVIRA. Even if your system comes up clean, look for patterns in usage (like a particular CD you use when it happens, etc.etc.)

I'd say it's most likely just a bad chip/mainboard. I've seen this before.

How do i get into setup?


Watch the screen when you press the power button for which key to press to get into System Setup or Bios. Press Del repeatedly once you hit the Power Button.

Sound like you've got a memory issue.
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Blank screen and continuous beeps when computor starts up


Count the beeps, they tell the technician what is going on. Normally that is a pattern to the beeps such as (3 long beeps, 1 long beep followed by two short beeps).

Does the laptop post anything on the screen when you hit the power button or does it immediately start beeping?

Just off the top of my head I would think you've got a memory issue. It could be a Video Card issue too.

What brand and model is your laptop?

Lets, try the memory tests just in case:

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

When i power ON my dell mini it beep 8 time Please kindly hrlp


The POST beep code - 8 beeps indicates a memory problem.
Try reseating the RAM modules to ensure proper connection.
If it still does not boot up, the RAM may be faulty. Remove the RAM and take it to your computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. If faulty the RAM needs to be replaced.

Xbox360 Frezzes after i put games in and start playing. Everygame every time


Xbox 360 overheating?
Overheating is unfortunately an extremely common problem. The console's fans whurr so loudly that you'd think it would be fine, but whilst drowning out a lot of the sound from your games you need to ensure that it is in a well ventilated area. Try to make sure that there is nothing surrounding it and that it is not too close to a heat source.

The problem is with a heat sink on the video processor, the heat sink (the cooling unit) that sits above it is too small. This means this chip gets very hot. Heat is not being pulled off the processor by the fans in the back and by the heat sink extension. Even the accessory fans that clip on the back are not enough. A solution if you don’t mind the Xbox all opened up is to open the Xbox to access the DVD ROM (do this only on systems that no longer carry a warranty). The DVD Rom is covering the heat sink. Remove the DVD ROM from its normal location and set aside still connected. Either using CP cooling fans or even a small electric fan point it at the heat sink. The system will no longer freeze.

There are many cause's & solutions to this very problem. if your problem persists please don't hesitate to ask for help again

The reason I suggest this is it is the most common problem for the Xbox360 freezing.

If this fails as well I suggest one last thing.
If you can surf threw your xbox360 console I would suggest going threw the memory of the xbox to see if anything has corrupted, there will be a caution/warning sign letting to know if said/file is corrupted.

Clearing the xbox360 cache afterwards can also help
