Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My Norcent LCD tv would power off by itself a few times after I bought it a couple of years ago. Then one day before it was even ten months old, it powered off and never came back on. I tried desperately to get hold of Norcent while it was still in warranty (faxes, emails, voice mails). Not once did they respond. I checked with the BBB and discovered they had over a hundred complaints filed against them. I just gave up. Now, I would like to have the tv fixed if it's affordable. Someone took the back off to look at it for me and you can very clearly see the wire to the power plug receptor is worn, or torn and probably needs to be replaced. My question is will we have to replace the whole board it's on and if so how much would that run? Thanks for your help.

A good service tech should be able to replace just the worn part.

S5610Y shuts off by itself


Thus far you did well however I believe since I had experienced the same issue with my computer shutting on and off as well. I went and bought some Heat Sink Paste and redid the CPU top and walla no more issue with computer shutting down. You may wish to give this a go. It worked for me. $4.00 fix. Thought I would suggest it. .John

I have an ASUS model X83V and my screen has been flickering (not in brightness, but actually going fuzzy and "jumping"). The flicker can take upwards of 1 hour or more before it goes away, but usually...


my son has this same machine and after a year of almost daily use it developed this same flicker you describe, about every 4 secs, then it got much worse, almost like an old tv rolling. i took it all apart and inspected it all. didn't see anything really troubling.

yesterday it worked fine all day while i installed a bunch of updates for another problem. i left it on all night doing some other things. this morn when i got up it was still ok. then after a while it started in again, every 4 secs.

so i've been troubleshooting the damn thing all evening and have come to the conclusion its from over heating, probably cause of the crappy heat sink connection. i noticed if i take it outside in 40 degree weather and leave it a couple mins on the hood of my truck, it goes away. bring it back in and after 5 mins it comes back. take it back out and its fine again in a few mins. also, yesterday my house as much cooler. my fire was out and it was in the upper 60's in here, today as soon as it got to 76 in here, and it was above that all day, it started acting up

so i think my next step will be to try and make a better union between the chips and the heat sink itself. you should try a test with yours. start it up, make sure its flickering, put it in a cold space for a few mins. just be caustious of condensation.

Sounds like the charge socket is not properly seated on the motherboard. I would call customer service on where you bought the laptop and tell them the situation. But by all mean DO NO continue to use it. You may do damage that they say "Is your fault"

Trust me I have had clients that have "Been there .. done that"

Good luck

Buzzing/humming noise in my computer's power supply


I wouldn't recommend leaving your PC on all the time but don't think this should have harmed your new power supply. The power supply may be faulty so try speaking to the store you bought it in to try another one. Alternatively, I would try moving your PC to a very well ventilated area at your desk to see if this helps.
