Mainboard isue

Q: Mainboard isue


Recently I recieved by mail my brother's laptop to fix,since I`m the "smart" guy inthe family everyone is pushing me with IT or Electronic choirs...anyway, it`s not why I`m here. The laptop has a broken screen, I tried to attach the laptop to another monitor via VGA but didn`t wor, no image at all. So I`m wondering if the mainboard is bustedm since I don`t know if I should order a new display for it or just toss it in the garbage can. The colored leds are on when I start it, no booting sound, but the HDD is working, so is the dvd-rw, I mean it takes commands, all the buttons work, I mean restart and power.is there a chance that the mainboard is bustend and I still have power on cpu/optical device/storage?

Thanks for the answer

Preferred Solution: Mainboard isue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So I've googled this issue as much as i could, most anwsers go you need to reinstall windows and most likely lost all the data on it.
My laptop is medion erazer p6679 on Win 10. I was on a zoom call when it froze and crashed. When turning on it gives me the message shown in the screen and what it the boot menu shows me.
All repair shops are shut near by and I really need it for my uni courses.
Is there anything you guys can suggest(I dont have the original windows 10 and would need to buy new, with the current state of the world might be difficult )

My wife's laptop is acting crazy. It's been working fine, then the other night the screen starting blinking and became unreadable. It would just blink a ton and flash on and off. She took it in the next day to her work to the tech guys there and it worked fine. Today the same issue. I was able to get it to start in Safe Mode and it works just fine. Trying to start in regular mode it starts out just fine, then goes to blinking/flashing, etc.

Any ideas? Sorry I can't give more details, but that is as good a description as I can give!

Any ideas?

A:[SOLVED] Suspect DNS Isue with Vista

Your Default Gateway is your Router. Unplug the power plug to the Modem and the Router. Plug the power into just the Modem (unless you have a modem/router combo) When all the lights come up, plug in the power to the Router (unless combo of course) Go to Start/Search and type inetcpl.cpl and press enter/Connections/LAN Settings. Make sure all the boxes are unchecked. Now go to Start/Search and type ncpa.cpl and press enter. Right click the Local Area connection/Properties scroll down to Internet Protocol IPV4 (TCP-IP)/Properties. Make sure Obtain an IP Address and DNS Server Address Automatically are both checked. Now go to Start/Search and type CMD right click the Command Prompt link in the Search Results and choose Run As Administrator. IN the Command Prompt type ipconfig /release and press enter. the IP Address changes to Now type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. Now type ipconfig /renew. Now type ipconfig /all. You should have a new IP address try it again. If you still cannot connect please include the text output of your ipconfig /all in your next post

I was trying to forward ports for some programs using a http://portforward.com guide.
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the ip address should be set to to expand...

You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default both the username and password are root. Click the Ok button to log in to your router. Click to expand...

...it says, but doesnt work, I did search a bit with google about it but found nothing certain.

Hello my name is Gringoyle

Let me start from the very begining, I was play Ever Quest 2 when my key board started acting up i found that it was my mouse, when my mouce was in movement the keyboard was inop so if was to use the (W,A,D,S) keys to navigate than use the mouce to move the cursor i would stop movment.

So I decided to test the mouce in safe mode, I and made a big mistake by using msconfig to do so. Well it started an endless loop of chrashing when windows would boot causing the loop to start over. I can however use F8 still which i did to to try and repair my system, it recommended that I use the recovery, that had failed. I than used the F8 last knowen good configuration option to start windows and I am running again, I than when to change the settings in msconfig i had made but i am unable to. When in msconfig under the general tab the "Selective Startup" is selected, under the boot tab the options are normal, safe mode is not selected. However if I select the Normal Startup option under the general tab the safe mode box becomes check under the boot tab and if I uncheck the safe boot box, the Selective Startup option is than selected again under the general tab.

And my dang mouce is still causing the keyboard to be inop when in use.

Thank for any advice you fellas can offer me,

I have an ASUS K8V-X socket 754 motherboard and I ok happy with it, buit I always think somethings wrong with it. Like recently after I was installing a new graphics card, all of a sudden it didn'r recognize my primary slave hard drive. We later got it to work but is this something that a motherboard could be responsible for? I'm also obsessed with speed. I have an Athlon XP 64 processsor in it and lot's of RAM and, at first, after reformating it seemed so fast, then the more programs I put on it the slower it got. I hear this is common to think this way? But anyway, (I'm an obsessive compulsive so please forgive me) I just always think somethings wrong with my motherboard. I ran a Hot CPU test utility on it and everything passed fine, but my need for the perfect motherbaord still persists. I tempted to buy this Gigabyte socket 754 from Amazon. (You can see it on the link below) but I may just end up finding out the same thing, where it would work fast at first and as I load programs on it it slows. Still I wonder if it it might be worth it since it's been about two years with this board and it may very well be responsible for some glitches I've had with certain things like I mentioned above. And since the Gigabyte would be newer technology wouldn't it be correct to assume I would get more performance out of it than the ASUS?


A:Should I buy a new mainboard?

Slow running is most likely to be caused by programs that load with Windows, not any failure of hardware. Maybe check the Startup section of MSConfig and disable any unnecessary startup programs - that's bound to resolve your issues. As for the Pri Slave recognition - that's an odd one. First off, check the BIOS still sees it then check Device Manager for conflicts. Could also be worth checking the jumper settings on the drive.

Hello all and good day, I am looking at a friends pc, he just installed a new mainboard, its an ecs elitegroup p4. It has power to it, but it doesn't sound as if the processor is doing anything, it says in the manual to connect the P4 processor auxillary case power supply connector to ATX1, I have found the ATX1 on the board, but nothing on his power supply to hook up to it, could this be the problem? Is it possible that he has not enough power to run it? I have also noticed that his cd rom doesn't eject either. I am just guessing, but I think maybe he has a problem with his power supply. Please if any one knows about the atx1 connector, let me know asap.

Hello, I just installed a new main board, a VIA Samuel2 1 Giga Pro with all kinds of stuff built in, network card, sound and video. The problems I am having are :

1. Under Device Manager it says it is only running at 733 MHz, I do I get get the full 1000 ?

2. I am running Windows XP, and since I upgraded to this mother board I can not get my CD burner to work, it is a Yamaha 2200 CDR - it worked with my old 400 MHz mother board and installed without any problems. Windows XP installs what looks like the right driver, and I can see it under My Computer - it even says CD-RW but when I put in a CD it will not read it. A blank window opens, my regular reader is working fine, but it is quite old and slow 20X. Please help if you can.

Thanks alot.

A:New Mainboard 2 Problems

I don't quite understand the processor problem, what processor are you running.

733 would be 133 x 5.5, intel only sells that speed in 733 processors.

amd on the other hand would be another issue if the front side bus defaulted to 100 rather than 133 but the numbers don't add up to 733, it would be either 750 on 100fsb or 1 gig on a 133 fsb

If your recycling center is anything like mine (a stopping place before the dump) then the MB is probably bad to start with.

Should support DDR only. (I have some now, and have heard hybrid/ mixed boards often cause problems)

Must support AMD Athelon 2000+ 1.67+ Ghz XP Thouroughbred proccessor. (because I already have it.)

Must "play nice" with a Nvidia GeForce 440MX PCI graphics card.

Should follow the ATX form factor.

Should be between $40 and $70 USD. (my return is $52)

Should not include a proccessor.

my computer is giving a lot of problem these days..(it hangs madly!) it all started only after i open up my computer to add an additional cdrom drive. i doubt that it's the problem of cdrom as i did the same thing on my another similar computer - compaq presario 3600ap. the computer now is not under warrenty so i could not send back to the technician, so i intend to buy new parts to replace the faulty part.

BUT now i have no idea, what makes the computer hangssss so often...it could hang when i try to reboot the computer..like it hangs in the boot up of windows... and sometimes...the computer cannot find 'Intel(R) 82845 processor to I/O controller' and sometimes it's another one which is call PCI bus something i dont remember... but it's sometimes this and sometimes that....inside this computer has a new graphic card,new harddisk and the mainboard has inbuilt sound card. im just afraid that what if i buy a new mainboard, but it's actually my processor that is faulty then my problem is not fixed and i wasted my money..

so is there anyone good at hardware? that can tell me what should i do or replace which parts to stop my pc from hanging? :<

A:is my cpu spoil? or mainboard?

You could try disconnecting some of your devices, and running just what you absolutly need, (main Harddrive). Then slowly add 1 piece at a time, start machine, see how it runs. (Try to eliminate a possible faulty device)

Are jumpers on devices set properly??
