Any motherboard that needs a tweak like yours to work is generally not safe and can cause possible electric shock and or other problems along the way..

Get that motherboard replaced as soon as possible and you will be much happier :)

Have a dell latitude 600 d will not boot up goes right into bios mode and no modes work right back to screen windows xp thanks


Quite simple.. I've had several D600's.

You're not going to like the answer--

You OS is borked, or your hard-drive is damaged.


I'll go with the bored OS, as my D600 has survived years... What you can TRY:

Reboot the system, press F8 constantly as it turns on.. I'm mean constantly..don't stop.

1000x is okay..

It'll go into a grey screen, asking you if you want to boot into various optiosn... select, "Last known good configuration".

See if that boots. If it doesn't, do it again..select "SAFE MODE"... and you'll need to go into the recovery screen to "Restore from a previous state".

If that fails... Insert CD...reinstall OS :-(

Hope it helps.

Sounds like you are trying to boot from a lan or someplace other than your hard drive. Turn the computer off then turn it back on and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to Change the Boot Order or Boot Sequence then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to reboot to restart the process. Select the Hard Drive as your boot source and then see if it boots up all the way. If it does, you will have to do this each time you start the computer unless you make a permanent change to the boot order or boot sequence.

To make the change permanent, turn the computer off and restart it. Look at the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the Bios or System Setup then hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you'll have to restart. Once you get into the Bios or System Setup look for the Boot Sequence Tab or Settings and go change the boot sequence or Boot Order. Make the cd drive 1st, and the hard drive 2nd. This is the normal boot order or boot sequence. Just make sure when you boot the computer you don't have a music cd or movie dvd in the drive or you'll get an error because the system will try to boot from the cd/dvd drive 1st.

The video card has failed and you will have to replace it. Your pc has a PCI Express x16 card slot so every new card will be accepted - get the most expensive one you can afford.

My thread is bunching up and excessively stitching under fabric


What you have going on is probably a bobbin problem. The knots are referred to as birds' nests and happen usually happen when your bobbin thread gets caught on something in the bobbin area. To be certain it's a bobbin problem, change your needle. Even if the needle looks fine, it could be just slightly bent and still look fine to the naked eye. If that doesn't solve the problem, take the fabric out of the sewing machine and turn the machine wheel by hand. Watch what happens thru the plastic window in the bobbin area, or if you don't have a plastic window leave the bobbin covering off. Is the thread catching somewhere and causing a bunch of thread to gather in the bobbin area? Be very careful when investigating in the bobbin casing/area-it's easy to chip things in there! Often times, a piece of something falls in there and can be pulled out with tweezers. Just as often, the bobbin casing is slightly tilted and needs to be straightened or has a chip in it and needs to be replaced. You can normally get a replacement on eBay, searching with your machine model number. Also, check out SewVacUSA. If you need help replacing the bobbin casing (it's easy, you just need to be careful), or if these solutions don't work, leave me a comment. I check back daily, so I'll get back to you within 24 hours normally. Leave me as much detail as possible and I'll do everything I can to help you!

Thread bunches up under material


What you're getting is called a bird's nest, and it's a frustrating pain. There can be a number of problems. First, try changing your needle. It may look fine, but it could be ever so slightly bent and causing a problem. If this doesn't work, take the fabric out of your machine. You'll need to manually turn the machine's wheel and watch through the window at your bobbin. Is the thread hanging up on something in the bobbin area when you're turning the wheel and creating a mess of thread in the bobbin area? Look at where it's catching in your bobbin. You may have a cracked bobbin case-this you can get a replacement for online. Look on eBay for your machine model. They're fairly easy to replace and I can help you with that. If the thread is catching on something else in the bobbin case, be VERY CAREFUL poking around! Don't be forceful with anything!
You could also have a tension problem with you're upper tension. You may be working with really thick fabric, too. It's a little hard, because I don't know what else is going on. Try some of this, though, and leave me comments. I check back daily and leave me some more details if these things don't help or if you need to replace the bobbin case and need more help. I'll get back to you within 24 hours normally.

The new caps that are collated with plastic tape are running on top of each other instead of advancing cleanly. Thanks-Will


Hi,
You`ll see a flat and a flat spring on the feeder. The are 2inch long maybe. Should be one or two small bolts holding them on. Take the both of. Bend back the flat spring the is bent on the end and bent back so there tension on the cap when it goes through. That will work once or twice.

A few bent pins on socket 775 mb, NForce 780i SLI. How can I fix this?


which pins are bent? You may be able to GENTLY bend them back iinto position. I have used the end of a ball point pen, the click kind with a hole at the end to slip over the bent pin and bend it back.


Don't forget to rate the advise!
