Changing motherboards

Usually it is on the manual with the mother board you bought, in any case that its not,

try looking to a bunch of pins along the corner with a marking pw | rs | spk | hdd | led |
pw - power
rs - reset
spk -speaker
hdd - hdd power (red blinking light)
led - green light (power)

Gigabyte GM-M5050 not connecting to laptop.

it is only a USB mouse and works on any pC really. w7 needs no special driver for this mouse ever, it uses PnP, plug and play and the internet must be active and working for PnP to work is it? not told that. your failed computer is all messed up with w7 even infected monza is w7, 2012 made (year) the usb ports are first not mouse the device manager must show all USB ports have good drivers, and you test them using a USB stick of thumbdrive memory to be sure they do work, and if does good or use USB keyboard to test usb ports all if all that works then the mouse is tried. and internet connected and the mouse to when connected must show up in device manager. and actually function/

Hi i have a gigabyte

talk to gigabyte.com is the cooler not from gigabytes is that it? so is this below? i guess you meant Model# GZ-FW1CA-AJS go back to air or upgrade to far better cooling this is not. cheap cooling is no good. will not last. also above is know for bad corrosion inside, rule #2 buy cooling only from makers that see spare parts for it. or is doomed. the manual shows no parts list for sure water level so needs new water tank I guess, why not ask maker for support no PC store sells parts for this custom case.(turn key is seems) or defeat that switch and just look at level at step 1 , before turned on. (that is what I would do, but sure back to AIR

Changed out atx power supply because computer not powering up. Do I replace with same motherboard with same or buy new Windows 10 Box.

ok, a simple hardware question only. w10 could careless about PSU. (facts) mobo is micro atx size 24.4cm x 24.4cm not powering up has many causes, even simply stuck in sleep mode. (power on button held for 10seonds and released last is 1 cure. of about 20 causes (up to) GA-F2A78M-D3H (rev. 3.0)or rev. 4.0????? rev is on bottom left of mobo, normal tower case. no case told the PSU is called ATX and all work here 500 to 750watts 24 pin power is normal but CPU power uses 8 pin power plug PSU.marked ATX12v psu lacking 8 pin, can use 4 to 8 adpater. vast here work, in real ATX case not micro cases. https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?d=psu+atx&N=4131%20100007657%20600014006%20600479294&isdeptsrh=1&Order=1 from you manual . 12vatx-undefined-undefined-0.jpg dead PC are all fans dead.> that is dead PC. the monitor must be good and connected the the VGA jack if using GPU card then it must connect to the monitor the BIOS screen must work or the PC is dead or GPU card is dead. strip the PC down ,any thing in the PC shorted will make PC dead. if strip down tests fail the PSU may be bad is its fan dead too? both power connectors most be connected above or PC will be dead.

I am using GA-945GCM-S2l Gigabyte motherboard for my desktop and Windows 7 32 bit OS. The hard disk 250 gb is not working. Will this motherboard support 500 gb SATA hard disc? Bhasker Raj Bangalore India

That motherboard has 4 SATA 2.0 slots. Should work well. You said "hard drive" so I am assuming you do not mean Solid State drive (SSD) I am surprised you are using Windows 7 with that MB

How do I hook up my creative labs sbs 5.1 560 powered sub so it runs off my computer then to my stereo reciver I have a gigabyte ga-ma770-ud3 mother board and a technics sa-ax6 stereo receiver

Hi Please provide more information. What do you want to do with your creative sub and your stereo receiver ? The Creative Sub has been built for the PC and doesn't design for RCA Jacks... if I understand your question you are gonna connect your sub to the receiver ... if so... then you need 3.55 mm audio jack to RCA Audio convertor... Please give some more and specific info about your problem.
