Question about Intel Motherboard

2 Answers

New computer will not power up

I just built a computer for the first time - purchasing all the components in a package, so everything should be compatible.  All connections have been double and triple checked.  When I turn on the power, the system fan and the CPU cooling fan come on, but nothing happens beyond that.  I have a DVD drive, but it will not open as if it is not getting any power.  It appears that only minimal power is getting in.

 

Any ideas what I can check?

It could be a number of things, but one thing sometimes gets missed out, the fan has come on so the fan is connected, but some processors are no longer powered by the ZIF socket and are powered by a seperate 4 pin plug from the PSU to the motherboard, so check that first.

 

Check the memory for compatability with your board, remove one if you have 2 fitted and try again, especially if theres no beeps indicating that the memory has not been identified; if theres no bios and just a flashing cursor, then the bios chip may have been damaged or stressed on build when fitting the parts caused by overflexing the motherboard or faulty from supply.

 

Clear the cmos terminals (refer to the manual) just incase after you have refitted the memory

SOURCE: New motherboard will not boot

It appears that you are aware of Motherboard jumpers.

1. Reset BIOS settings by CMOS Clear jumper ( Location of jumber is given on the sticker / manual of motherboard )

2. Try updating BIOS of your motherboard from the following link :
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Filter_Results.aspx?strOSs=All&strTypes=All&ProductID=2838&lang=eng&OSFullName=All%20Operating%20Systems

3. Plug only Optical Driver / Hard disk at a time and check.

4. Contact your vendor and get the motherboard replaced.

SOURCE: Followup on power connectors

Hi chweb1230, to answer you're question. Yes, I would suggest getting a power supply that would comply with the ATX main 24-pin power connector. The term backwards compatible references to boards that require less voltage, Ex; (A 20-pin main power board). If you intend to run serial ATA SATA drives & a PCI-E graphic card. The newer power supply will handle future upgrades. Suggest a 500 to 550W PSU should handle just about anything you add to the board.
chweb1230, when you make a post & are making reference from another post. Please copy & past that link into this post. If you are using a new user ID I can not look back & find what you are refering too.

SOURCE: get no power with intel d875pbz in rosewill tu155 case

You don't have the power switch connected where it belongs. There's one set of pins where all the front panel connections go. This information is from the manual for this board, available from Intel here.

Hope it helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

Will your software work on my Mac running OS 10.6.2 I bought your CD labels and need a design template


Unfortunately the Memorex LabelMaker ExpressIt Label Design Studio software is only compatible with Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, and XP.

If you install Boot Camp, you can install Windows and use this software in a virtual computer. (However, you need a licensed copy of Windows.)

There are third party video editing software packages that have label design components (Roxio Toast is one package.) The Memorex labels should be compatible with some of these programs.

I wish that I had better news.

4 Computer Money-saving Tips


Here are four tips that’ll save you money when buying your next computer.

Tip #1 -- Rebates: A rebate is not always a bargain. Computers with rebates are often close to being discontinued. You may pick up a good deal or purchase technology that's about to become yesterday’s news. What's more, stores will often package computers with a bunch of free items to make it look like you're getting more value. Chances are the extras are either poor quality or items you're unlikely to use. Also, they’re counting on you to not redeem your rebate, a very common occurrence.

Tip #2 -- Extended Service Warrantees: Buyer Beware! They're a gamble, but not always a bad idea. If you're purchasing a laptop and you plan to travel a lot, an extended warranty that covers replacement of the monitor/display can be a good gamble. Replacing a display can cost $400-$600, making the warranty worthwhile. On the other hand, if you plan on buying the warranty for routine maintenance; save your money. Oftentimes it can take weeks for the store to send your PC out for service. Also, remember the store where you purchased your computer does not always do warranty work during the first year, instead you may have to ship it directly to the manufacturer. In general, extended warranties cover electronics [things you can't see]. They don't usually cover physical damage. Most extended warranties have large gray areas, leaving the warranty provider a lot of room to reject claims.

Tip #3 -- Monitors: Don’t throw away your monitor if it's still working properly. Instead, keep it and save a chunk of money by just replacing your old CPU [computer tower]. Monitors last much longer than CPUs and the technology is usually compatible between your old monitor and the new CPU. However, if you’re dissatisfied, then monitors, keyboards and mouses are the three tools to spend extra money on, since you use them every day!

Tip #4 -- Networking: How are you connecting to the Internet? If you're using a high speed Internet connection, such as cable broadband or DSL, you'll want to make sure you have a network card built into your system. If you have a wireless network at home or at the office, save money and installation time by buying the wireless card built right into the computer.

It says can not sync ipod(-53) What does this mean..how to fix


Hi, message saying "can not sync" means that the connection from the ipod to the computer was not successful..
If you sync your iPod with a different/empty library iTunes will only give you the option to copy your iTunes Store purchases directly from the iPod to the computer and everything else on it will be erased. You'll find details on transferring purchases in this article: iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer

Purchased applications can be downloaded over again, see this article for details: How to redownload purchased applications from the App Store

If you want to recover the music from CDs etc that is on the iPod and transfer it to your new computer there are a few things you can do. music from CDs etc.) there are a number of third party utilities that you can use to retrieve the music files and playlists from your iPod Touch or iPhone. You'll find that they have varying degrees of functionality and some will transfer data (such as playcounts and ratings), movies, videos, photos, podcasts and games as well.

A selection of iPod/iPhone to iTunes utilities:
Senuti Mac Only (iPod Touch & iPhone compatible)
SharePod Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
TuneJack Windows Only (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPodRip Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
Music Rescue Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPod Music Liberator Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iGadget Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iRepo Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
iPod Access Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)
TouchCopy Mac & Windows (iPhone and iPod Touch compatible)

I would also advise that you get yourself an external hard drive and back your stuff up, relying on an iPod as your sole backup is not a good idea and external drives are comparatively inexpensive these days, you can get loads of storage for a reasonable outlay: Back up your iTunes library by copying to an external hard drive

One last thing, you need to take care connecting to an empty iTunes. Open iTunes first and go to Edit>Preferences>Devices and check the box "Prevent iPods and iPhones from syncing automatically" and choose Ok before connecting your device.

Once you have recovered everything from the iPod and your iTunes library has been rebuilt it will be safe to sync again.

Does 2009 chevy.express have connection for electric brake?


Yes you will have to hook up a adapter. The only reason that you would not have to do this is if your vehicle came with the complete tow package, meaning shocks and tighter springs and everything else. But most of these models require a adapter to run electric brakes

It seems like you have done everything right but im not 100% sure that your memory is correct. read through the description here carefully and you will see that this memory comes in two different packages. One of them is the 400 (the ones you bought) and another in the 333 flavor. I am hoping they did not make a mistake and gave you the wrong ones. Look directly at the memory and make sure. I am also including the system manual for your computer. Hope this helps.

The product is shipped in retail packaging and includes installation instructions.

Laptop connection to Internet


In the simplest terms buy a longer ethernet cable or multiple ethernet cables and route them to several preferred areas.

However believing you probably would like to connect wirelessly

If your laptop has a built-in network card and originally came with Vista you may need to configure the network adapter and/or the router appropriately. There are often user guides for the both the adapter and router that will assist.

If your laptop has an built-in wireless adapter and you upgraded to Vista you should check the manufacturers website using support or drivers links to see if they have Vista software/drivers to support your built-in wireless adapter. IF not you may want to consider the purchase of a compatible add-on wireless adapter as noted below. And perform the appropriate configuration(s) as noted above.

Likewise if your laptop does not have a wireless adapter you may wish to consider purchasing an adapter. Care must be taken that the adapter is compatible with your computer, your operating system (Vista) and your wireless router (apparently WBR-1310).
