Question about Intel Motherboard

4 Answers

Hardware/Software Malfunction My computer problems started out as a major video driver problem that cause my computer to crash when it started Windows, when I came back from school a few months later, it would simply shutdown after 2-5 seconds after I pushed the power button. I assembled the computer myself, and it has worked perfectly until it started having these problems, and they have steadily gotten worse as time has gone on, there have been no other factors to cause these kind of problems. I think it might be the motherboard, but I hope not.

I may just need cleaning or it could be a power or cooling related issue? did anyone or your self adjust any voltage settings /over clocking? dual graphic cards can also be known to overheat and shutdown? are all your fans working correctly? case fan, cpu fan,power supply unit fan? as sometimes when a computer just sits with no use for a period of time this also can create defects in any cooling ?

Why is it that my PC (desktop) encountered suddenly shutdown? WINDOWS HAS RECOVERED UNEXPECTED SHUTDOWN Problem signature: Problem Event Name: BlueScreen OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48 L


You say Windows, but not which version. Regardless, the "blue screen of d??th" is a mighty frustrating issue. There are ways that can help isolate the cause, but they are complex and require additional software. The two things that most often cause crashes are intermittent hardware faults and defective or incompatible drivers. Check to see if you have recently updated and of the component drivers. If so, use the "rollback" feature to go back to the previous driver and see if that helps. Unfortunately, often the only way to solve these problems is to reload the OS. If you can still access your system, now is a good time to back up all your data that you don't want to lose in case the system crashes hard and you need to reformat and reload.

Dell 8100 dimension keeps freezing


I need more than that to tell you how to troubleshoot the problem you're having. Most freezing or locking up is caused by a program not functioning properly. Start your computer in safe mode. Go to your start button, type in the search RUN right click and run as Administrator, then when the box opens type in MSCONFIG and click run/yes/okay (which ever you see). This will bring up a new window. On the main tab you'll see three options. Normal start up, Safe Mode, and Selective Startup/Custom Startup. Click safe mode hit okay and it will restart the computer into Safe Mode. This will prevent all startup programs and services from starting. Let the computer run and if it still freezes then you know it's a hardware issue. If it doesn't, it's a program error. Take the time then to diagnose either the hardware or the software. If it's the hardware, check to make sure that everything is seated correctly, that the ram is firmly and fully in their sockets. Make sure your hard drives are connected correctly. Check the power supply make sure it isn't dying and causing you too lose power.

Look at the motherboard and check for heat damage, blown resistors and other components.

If it's software, go back into MSconfig, go into selective start up and choose one or two programs at a time and restart the computer until it freezes. If you get it to freeze with a specific program you know it's the culprit.

Also, freezing tends to be related to bad configurations. I dont' know if you've been trying to overclock the processor, the ram, or the video card (onboard or dedicated) could also cause these issues. Check your bios and make sure your settings are correct. Stop using any overclocking software.

Lastly check temperature. The normal operating temperature of a desktop PC is 130 degrees F with some of the more powerful processors and video cars. 90 degrees F while not under load. If your temperature is getting too hot it could be crashing. This could indicate a bad processor, a heatsink that isn't seated or in contact with the processor anymore, malfunctioning fans, poor circulation, or even dust/grime/dirt getting into the computer.

You could be experiencing this GUI lag or freezing if you have background processes that are taking priority over it while they run drawing more of the computers resources. Let it sit for a little big and see if it corrects itself.

Lastly, if you're getting blue screens of death because of windows, get the logs for them and post them so we can go over them and see if anything else is happening.

The Machine Reboots after displaying Blue Screen With Error Message


Windows is entirely in control of any blue screens; so the hardware spec is not relevant yet.
can you try reading your windows event log immediately after a crash? :::Start>all programs>administrative tools>event viewer

you are looking for an error mentioning a filename... C:\windows\~somepath~\Minidump.dmp
If you get yourself a copy of WinDB (here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/gg463009)

You can then open WinDB and open/read that crash dump file (file open crash dump), and it will provide you with a filename of the driver that caused a problem (possibly even tell you what it was doing when it was called).. chances are it's one of the following causing the problem: Graphics Card drivers Storage controller drivers Motherboard drivers (Power Management related issue usually)
If you have the latest driver; then get the hardware checked out...

Video display from VGA output is intermittent. Video not displaying on the next restart. Is this hardware malfunction or corrupted driver?


try starting in safe mode
to do this, restart your computer and keep pressing F8 until a screen pops up
if problem persists, it is most likely a hardware failure.

Widows freezes, repeats disk check


  1. The computer is freezing though the component parts are designed to withstand motion picture malfunctions known as freezing. Computers with enormous hard disk spaces to contain several user programs are least likely expected to experience freezing conditions. Also, computers with improved graphics, sound media, video hardware components least should experience multimedia malfunctions. Freezing occurrences on computers have several causes discussable.

Usually a functioning computer requires components mentionable as hardware's that are the visible aspects, and software's that may have been installed to take a visual display format. A functioning computer would usually have the software's integrated into the hardware's from the manufactures facility. For example, acquiring a computer from retail would be in functioning mode with every component parts intact as default built for the user. However, once a functioning computer begins to malfunction would be due to either hardware component or software components. The conditions that could make computers freeze are conditional. First, freezing malfunctions are caused by software overloads resulting in a hardware overburdenment. For example, the computer would have been installed with programs at the manufacturer as operating systems that make functionalities possible. Once the computer was turned on prior to the user interactions, what is displayed is the operating systems usually a manufactures default feature. However, the computer is provided with spaces as an expectation for the user to achieve experiences several mentionable. For example, the computer user is provided spaces on computers for productivities purposes mentionable with office or school resources manipulations. A specific amount of space from the manufactcturer was placed to allow for the operating system to be alterted should any occurrences arise. Alterternately, the user interfaces has spaces allocations for manipulations discussable. First, filling up the computers spaces produces least performance either extensively display programs without continuous transition like as before with default functionality. Saving several programs on the available spaces causes freezing due to least spaces for motion to occur For example, the type of media on the computer may actually take extensive spaces. Motion pictures simply require enough computer space to be saved, thereafter displaying like expected else would produce still images also thought as freezing since not every motion is capable of displaying entirely with spaces provided however. Second, a download of a virus may cause the computer to freeze sending a response to the user that the spaces on the computer are full while in fact, the virus was perhaps designed to perform as impediment to usually space accessibility required for the entire computer to display appropriately. So far the explanation has been about the causes of software malfunctions that display results on the screen noticeable as freezing images. Alternately however, the computer may still appear frozen with hardware malfunctions discussable. First, the computer hard disk stores the operating systems programs installed at the manufactures. Once the hard disk programs are damaged either describable as crashes due to physical exposure, impact, or simply out dated, the computer may display remnants programs least achieving user desirable experience. Hard disk conditions includes that the physical wiring to the motherboard have come loose. Inspecting the disk connections to ascertain very component parts are intact would be likely diagnostic for hardware's malfunction also explainable for freezing computers. Several components within the computer once over burdened causes motion sluggishness. For example, the graphics hardware mentionable as memory cards, video cards, or multimedia readers may have become outdate for reasons discussable. First, the computer may have space for several programs. However, installing multimedia programs would require improvements such components as media readers to achieve desired experience.

I have PC Chips M925 v 1.1A, Chipset Via P4m 266. It had only SDRAM 384 MB and I changed by a Kingston PC 2300 1GB and opened the jumper for the DIMM voltage and it works, and faster. But I also have more...


changing ram is good to make your computer more faster but sometomes it do cause harm, before you change your system was working fine, but you have already upgrade to a higher ram but now you recieve more crashes unlike before, may its time to re install your windows or have it reformated sudden changes in a computer hardware cause these problems this is incompatibility issues between the hardware and software that causes these problems to appear

I replace my old processor with new one but the cpu wont run anymore


Major hardware changes such as a replacement processor need the operating system to be reinstalled using the CD, otherwise the drivers will not be installed and it will briefly start loading the OS and drivers before crashing.
There are ways round this by using sysprep in windows to "generalise" the PC, but I would recommend a full software install. Make sure you recover your data from your hard drive before you start

My computer is being weird


If it's an specific program then uninstall/reinstall.
If it's any program then you may need to do an virus scan and check to see if you have adaquate memory and the processor is not being stressed to max.
Open Task Manager and check Performance for CPU Usage and Memory used.
you may have programs running in the background that may cause your system to crash.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS IS HELPFUL. GOOD LUCK AND THANK YOU.

Asus A8V-VM SE with geForce 7100 GS crashes on load


Its probably a hardware issue. the video card has dedicated memory so there shouldnt be any problems unless the card is bad. Try removing any extra cards like wireless adapters and expanded firewire cards and sounds card. try running the game wiht just the video card in and see if it still does it. if it doesnt, you know its having conflicts with other hardware, if not, then try removing all the video card software and installing just the drivers without the xtra software. I had similar problems with Two ATI cards, The catalyst software was causiong problems, i removed it but kept the drivers, and all my problems went away.
