Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Amature in distress!! trying to put PC together


I think I have everything plugged in correct places, with help from fellow gamers in Belgium and Chile and my brother here in Aus, and I have looked at all sorts of "help" things on the internet.

When I switch on, ther is power to the fans, but the MB won't boot. I unplugged anything extra ( which means DvC and Harddrive), still no joy. Afraid i might have a dud MB.

Can't find anything useful that gives clear pictures so I can double check everything for THIS motherboard.

    MotherBoard AMD AM2 S940 Gigabyte GA-M52S-S3P V2.0

    I backed out of submitting this - didn't realise it had still gone thru - lol! I got frustrated when I pasted the model and found it was considered invalid!

    Anyway - there it is. I strongly suspect I need my son's friend's younger brother to solve the problesm - 13year old whizzkid already running a business!

    This irks me. I like being self-sufficient. However, it's all a learning curve.

    thank you for responding. All thoughts are welcome.

No one can help you if you do not list the motherboard model number & or any version number. A tech will download the manual for the correct Gigabyte board & go from there.

When I log on I get a page with the words "error model password" under the password box. Also I cannot get into "contact us."

It means you have exceeded the number of tries you are allowed to get the correct password. You might want to check on the fellow that sold it to you. Maybe stolen.

Laminator Jammed! I have a fellowes saturn 125 laminator. there is an item stuck inside that is not sticking out on either side, so cannot be pulled out, even when the reslease lever is pushed. can i...

once you take it apart it voids all warrants if you have any.
if you do not have any warrant parts than that the only way you are going to fix the issue.
here is what some one gave me some tips on disassembly of equipment. draw a picture of the device, mark the area of screw layouts, after separating the 2 parts draw diagram of each part, make foot notes on what you did, screw locations, parts removed, parts cleaned, PUT EVERYTHING IN A LINE IN THE ORDER OF REMOVAL PARTS, than work backwards and put everything back the way you took it apart, you should not have any extra parts and it should work fine. than if it every happens again you have your notes and information on hand to help you. you could try this site.

just from the top of my head. But does your dell come with all kinds of dell management software installed ? Lenovo has this to, if you change the settings in control panel nothing works as it should because it's overridden by the companies management software. Check for dell software to manage your pc. Or go to control panel and see if any dell software is there. in that case, uninstall it and the control panel options should work. Bloatware...

X22WG-gamer sceptre 22" monitor won't power on. It's not the power cord because I've used the power cord on a different monitor and it worked fine. Any and all assistance will be much appreciated.

Your monitor has 3 or 4 blown caps right next to the power plug. They are CapXon 470uf25v. Just open the back and remove the power board, desolder, and replace the 3 or 4 caps put it back together and it should go back to working. This a typical problem with the Sceptre gamer, HP1706, and the HP1903. And guess what they all have the same caps blown in almost the same place.NOTE: When seperating the case the power led is glued to the front frame. Take your time if you rush you will break a cable wire or plug.

My acer 5738G shuts down abruptly when i start playing games. its not even a month now tht i have bought this laptop. what is the problem?

Hi again.
The Graphic adapter is nVidia GeForce G105M, the dedicated video memory is 512 MB.
The games you are playing require 512 MB minimum!!!
This means the the graphics card cannot handle the games you are playing because they are really made for a desktop PC.
The only way around this is to lower the resolution of the game so its not using the high end settings.
It won't look as good but at least you will be able to play them.
If you are a gamer i recommend you think about a gamers desktop computer as they are built for that.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
