Is Mactor Compatible with ASUS M3N78-VM

Hello here is the homepage:

Please select your windows system.

Try to look here:

Try also to install a new harddrive.

Your old HD could have a lot of bad sectors.

This means the windows installation is missing some files, and the pc can not boot properly.

Try also to download the manual, for basic setup in the bios.

Good luck

My pc always shutting down whats the cause?

Hello here is the homepage:

Mine did that once; it turned out to be the power settings, in the control panel.

Have you downloaded any files recently?
If you download a bad file that contains a keylogger, it usaully shuts down the pc, it has happend to me.

The problem could also be dust or overheating, lack of ram memory,
harddrive failing, dryed out thermal paste, between the cpu and the coolling element.

Try to scan for virus with this:

And renew the antivirus program for free:

I recommend not to use more than one antivirus program.

Good luck

All of a sudden my system will hang with nothing function... not even ctrl+alt+del... mouse is also not working... since having no idea, I have to restart it again and again... This will happen...

This sounds more like a hard drive problem than motherboard. Try this FREE program called Mydefrag click the link. This program works different than the std. windows version. It can move files from a dead spot on the HD to a healthy spot and prolong the loss of your stuff. I would suggest you start moving files to another HD keep things you want or need. Hope this helps FixYA up.

Try booting into safe mode. If it's a driver problem, safe mode will allow you to start Windows with only the bare minimum of hardware and drivers being engaged. To get to safe mode, press the F8 button on your keyboard during the Windows boot process until it takes you to a screen to let you select Normal, Safe Mode, Safe Mode with networking, etc. I would suggest not using anything other than just Safe Mode. From there, uninstall any software or new drivers that you recently installed. Alternatively, you can use the System Restore feature to rollback to a previous restore point.

Memory or mobo problem?

If the memory slots have the same number of pins and fits in the slot provided for that bus type, you can run the memory. But due to the limitations of the hardware, it will only run at its peak Mhz of 533. This could cause a problem for the motherboards bus. I suggest using the recommended memory for the system.
