Asus x83v won't boot up


Unplug the machine, remove battery, leave the battery out, plug in the machine, try to boot normally. If the fails unplug, plug in, push the on/off button and IMMEDIATLY start tapping the F-11 REPEATEDLY. Enter restore/recovery section select a date before this problem started and restore. If that fails do a system recovery to factory settings. Or if you have a Windows Vista repair disk, Windows Vista Install disk that you can use to repair

. . . overclocking nightmare!!!


Motherboards, processors, and sdram must be timed properly to work together. Seldom have I found an overclocker who understands how timing works.

From your cryptic question it is not possible to offer a solution. Although in the United States, "won't give in," means to stand your ground, to prevail, stubbornness, to be uncooperative, failure to concede, continue to compete while injured, obstinacy in the face sound counsel, but I've never heard it used in reference to a motherboard.

I would suggest you make some reasonable settings in the BIOS setup program (hit del to run setup), and be patient. Microsoft Windows tracks previous boot outcomes, and uses the information to make adjustments in both hardware and software.

So, say your machine started to boot, but it froze or blue-screened. On the next boot Windows will make adjustments to hopefully improve the outcome.

If you make hardware-timing adjustments, Windows will already have planned the next boot, but now the user-configurable hardware settings have changed before Windows even gets hold of the machine!

Motherboards do the same thing. If the computer didn't start at all, but there were no beeps, the motherboard adjusts the timings so the computer can start.

After power-up, the BIOS might require you to run 'setup', but you can just hit 'esc.' As the BIOS turns control over to the operating system, it puts the timings back where you had them set (with exceptions), and Windows might even boot.

The conclusion is: be patient. Don't try to change a setting after every freeze or malfunction, unless you sure it must be changed. If two successive boot-ups fail, you probably need to show some mercy and loosen up on the timings.

Screen froze and says sd card has been removed


If the card is still in the machine remove it and restart your machine. If the machine is still froze, turn it off, remove the battery, replace the card, and boot the machine back up. If this fails you may need to obtain or re-install your machines operating system.

I have an Asus G1 laptop and I was just on it when the screen froze and an error message appeared saying the display adapters were not working and then the screen went distorted and froze so i reset it ...


Press F8 when you turn on the computer and from the list of options select safe mode and boot into safe mode when you are on the desktop screen go to the device manager ( you can use this path : start-run-devmgmt.msc) in the device manager go to display adaptors right click it and uninstall it.
after that restart the computer.

if this doesnot work again boot to safe mode and try to do a system restore (start-all programs-accesories-accesibility-system tools-system restore)
select a date when your system was working fine, that should fix it.

WIN XP won't start


You have to set the BIOS to boot from CD-ROM, so it should be the first one. Then from the installation screen you have to press r to try and repair your windows installation. This should work without losing your data.

Thru the wall ac unit


Sounds like the fan shroud on the hot side has come loose, or something is rattling around inside. Looking through the exterior vents may reveal the trouble, but the unit will have to come out & have the cover removed for repair. You can try lifting the outside corners one at a time while the unit is running & see if the noise stops. If so, a shim wedged under that corner will hold you for the season.
