Applying a socket to your motherboard can break it. It was not designed that way. What kind of socket do you want to apply?

My signal lights in my dash both light up when i apply the breaks and only works when i let go of the breaks


Usually this is a short in one of the sockets that holds the bulb, your brake lights are back feeding power causing your turn indicators to glow on dash when you hit the brakes and will stop the turn signal from flashing when you step on the brake pedal also. Start with sockets on rear and look for any shorted or blackened socket ends.

Ps2 scokets not working


If it is both of the P/S2 sockets, you may need to flash the BIOS. But, you should check the interface between the sockets and the motherboard, they are only held in place by the IO plate on the back and some solder. Constant fitment and removal will weaken the contacts and maybe even break them. If this is the only problem, you can resolder them.

1 beep then shuts off


Hmmm, one beep is good! lol!

Means P.O.S.T. is good.

I see we're working with an AMD processor, and a Socket 462 (Socket A), motherboard.

Let's look at some basic installation problems for that motherboard, and see if any fit;

1) Since it is an AMD processor motherboard, you have to be SURE that Thermal Paste has been applied PROPERLY, and applied.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

An AMD processor runs hot, for the models that fit that motherboard.
If no Thermal Paste has been applied, the AMD processor could have burned up.

2) Anti-Static Precautions:
I know, I know. But you would be surprised with those of us, who do not know what Anti-Static Precautions are; and work on computers.
(Hmmm, wonder why it doesn't work? Must be a bad motherboard)

3) Mounting to the Support Plate.

The Support Plate can be a separate metal plate; or is part of the computer case.
Mounting of the motherboard to Support Plate can be done with plastic Spacers; or metal Standoff's.

(Standoff. Shapes vary a little, but basically; 3/8ths to 1/2 inch long, hex shaped, threaded shaft on one end; and a threaded hole on the other end)

If a Standoff is NOT mounted to a motherboard mounting hole; and is just sitting out there on the Support Plate; it can touch exposed solder joints on the bottom of the motherboard, and cause a Short Circuit.

MOST of the time if the 'offending' Standoff is removed; or placed where it should be, (Motherboard mounting hole), then the motherboard, etc may be OK.

4) Power Supply:

If the Power Supply was on it's last leg, this may be the 'straw that broke the camel's back'. Power Supply went to the Power Supply graveyard in the sky.

If the Power Supply does not have enough power (Wattage, and Amp's), then you would also see the problem you stated.

New Power Supply, or old? What is the manufacturer, and model number?

Heatsink power


Is this a laptop or desktop?

Did you apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heatsink? If not, that might be your problem. Remove the heatsink, and remove the cpu from the socket also (remember how it goes back into the socket). Most times the thermal paste has probably dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool and it's like metal touching metal and shorts out the motherboard when you try to power it on. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste then put it all back together and reboot.

One brake light does not work i replaced the bulb and it still not working.


Your next step is to check the socket for the bulb. You will need a test light for this. Check and make sure one contact is grounded and that the other one has current when the brake is applied. If not check the wires going into the socket for the same. If they work properly and the socket doesn't replace the socket and your done. If the wires fail also you have a broken wire and you will have to trace it back to find the break. Usually the sockets are what goes bad from moisture and weather. Good luck.

How do you remove the heat sink from the CPU?


This depends on the CPU and the heat sink. The heat sink is fastened to the socket on the motherboard on two sides. It will be fastened to a tab on each side. In all likelyhood, the heat sink will have some sort of handle on it. AMD processors these days have a little lever that must be moved from the far right position up to the center. This loosens the heat sink and you can reach down to unhook first the side with the lever from the socket and then the back side. Intel processors seem to have a flat metal piece that must be pushed down to relieve tension on the clamp. As you do so, you have to get down by the socket on the motherboard and push the metal clamp away from the socket. This takes some doing, as it's quite tight. Once you have released the one side, the second side is loose and can be unfastened.
The heat sink can now be pulled up (use a slight twisting motion if possible to break the seal between the heat sink and the CPU. If the computer is several years old, the seal will be hard to break.

Samsung v20 display keeps going i have changed the screen cable


The plug on the screen ribbon cable which connects to the motherboard has dry solder joints. Closing the screen and typing hard on the keyboard can break these joints very easily. All you need to do is re-solder the joints. This is a very delicate job and requires a lot of patience.

Rear left brek light out


Check the BULB socket to see if it has 12 volts when the brake is applied, test the ground at the socket as well, use a 12 volt test lite from Kragen or a store like it.
