Question about EliteGroup P4VMM2 Motherboard

Second opinion for ecs p4vmm2 8.1

Good day, a friend of mine brought his computer to me asking for help, he says that his computer periodically slows down and then turns off, so i tested it myself. The problem i was seeing is the processor (coz i already replaced it power supply and it still hangs and turns off), an Intel Celeron, because its heat sink if not sitting properly in place and two of the clips are broken so it wont sit properly in place, in addition to this, he was asking if he can still upgrade his computer to a higher state, such as pentium4, is it possible that hes motherboard, an ecs elitegroup p4vmm2 8.1 socket 478, was also affected or is it safe to just replace it with a new processor?

It's ok to upgrade the processor to P4 the mother board is capable to run the pentium 4 2.0Ghz only . I said that because i'm using that type of motherboard ecs p4vmm2 with processor 2.0Ghz. But for my opinion the problem of your friend computer is not the processor is about the cooling fan heatsink because if the heatsink is not fit or properly lock the processor is over heating that's why the computer hanging and shutdown. If you can tight the two clip that was broken the problem is solved because i have also the same problem before one of my client computer. but if you friend want to upgrade to p4 it's better to buy also a new fan and heatsink for P4.

Thanks and God Bless

Why does car jerks constantly when i accelerate ?

Your car probably has the same problem as the 1995 corolla that I had before.
I don't know if jerking is same as vibrating but I brought my car to the shop and the mechanic said that it was caused by the wiggling of the harmonic balancer. He changed it but the problem wasn't solve. It wasn't diagnosed correctly so I asked for a second opinion and a friend of mine who is a mechanic found out what was wrong with the car. The bearings of the left front drive axle were completely worned that's why it don't spin evenly that causes the jerking or vibration when you accelerate
He replaced it and the problem was gone.

    Our 2003 Passat had a check engine light, and it turned out the coolant level was low. We brought it in to the dealership to check for a leak, and they couldn't find a coolant leak anywhere, even though...

    The answer is a definite yes to the second opinion. I don't know how they mean when they say the pump is not functioning properly. It may be leaking out of the waterpump seal in which case you have an explanation for your water leak. That would be a valid cause for replacement and doing the thermostat at the same time is a good idea. However, When they did not say the cause of the leak was a bad waterpump seal I would see a red go up the pole. I would ask them for a further explanation and then top off the expansion tank and go for the second opinion. Coolant does not last forever and topping off the coolant expansion tank is not cause for concern but if it is an every day or weekly occurance then you must find the leak.
