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.)

(Just posting this here so people in the future can find it.) I replaced my motherboard and just wanted to leave this here for future reference to some poor soul who has to do the same.
If you replace the motherboard on your Dell Studio XPS 8000, (service tag 3L8DHK1) and you need a new motherboard you can use an INTEL DQ57TM, it's compatible and I did a successful transplant. Your processor is an INTEL Core-i5 750 CPU 2.67GHZ it uses a SOCKET LGA1156. It uses DDR3 memory.
Once you take out your old motherboard and disconnect all those usb and audio wires and the power button wires. To hook up your USB front jacks, audio jacks etc.... here's which blocks go where:
Wires from the audio jacks and usb ports go into these colored block connectors, and those connectors get plugged into those little rows of pins/jumpers called Internal Headers. Every motherboard manual tells you about them. Grab the manual for your new motherboard and it'll tell you where your audio1, usb1, usb2, usb3, usb4 Header connectors are they look like 2 rows and 5 collumns of short little pins. (They almost always have 1 or 2 pins missing on purpose.)
the wires leading to a YELLOW BLOCK gets plugged into the audio1 header on your new motherboard, it's for audio jacks on top of the computer
wires with the WHITE BLOCK gets plugged into the usb3 headers on your motherboard (they are for the usb jacks on the very top of the computer tower)
wires with the GREEN BLOCK gets plugged into ... Read more

After cleaning out all the dust stuffed into it, the VGA fan now makes a lot of noise, probably because the bearings are shot.

Hi,
I posted a while back about possibly burning out my CPU due to lack of Thermal Paste.

I went out got some thermal paste reapplied it to the fan/heatsink and it seemed to boot up fine. The CPU fan was running perfectly, in time with boot up and my other fans were also running correctly. Job done, I thought it was all better.

Then I get the freezing again along with no booting up, I can hear the PC start up but the monitor picks up nothing and it just sort of sounds like its humming without much happening.

I went out and got a new cooling system, which is compatible and sort of the next model up from the one that was already installed. Same problem. Still freezing, fan was working perfectly and booted up fine.

So the question is where to go I go from here? I have replaced the cooling system, is it perhaps the case of replacing the CPU next?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as currently the computer is in bits on the floor!

My system spec is as follows:
Intel P4 3.2 Ghz
512 MB RAM 4OO Mhz
2 Hardrives, 120 GB and 160 Serial ATA 7200 rpm Seagate
ATI Radeon 9200 128 MB
WINDOWS XP2
Old CPU Cooler: Zalman ALU Super Flower Heatsink.
New: Zalman CNPS7700-CU Ultra-Quiet CPU Cooler
Motherboard is ASUS, had the computer about 2 years the BIOS has never been upgraded.

Last time i could check CPU was running at 40C

Thank you in advance
 

A:Replacement CPU?

Realistically it could be anything.
If the CPU has cooked too many times it may indeed have failed, if that is the case it could have taken anything else with it.

The motherboard may be heat damaged, the possibilities are endless.

Nobody here will be able to provide a definitive answer as only you have the PC. Trial by substitution is all that you can do without a several hundred thousand dollars worth of laboratory and a white coat...

They sent her a new XP Home CD, and charged her $180. The same as if she had never owned a Dell PC, and had gone out and bought an XP CD for full retail price. It doesn't sound right to me.

A friend of mine called to say that their computer was shutting down randomly and the computer was running really loud. I stopped by and took the cover off and noticed it was the CPU fan. I just wrote down the model number of the PC and didn't measure the fan, assuming I would be able to find it online. Maybe it's there, but I'm not smart enought to see it. The computer is a Compaq Presario SR5233WM (GN578AA). Below are the specs I found on Compaq's site but I'm still not sure of the size of the fan and really hate to have to stop by again to measure the fan.

Hello everyone,
I see there is a lot of threads about PSUs so I'm hesitant about posting another one. I just have a quick question. My parents' PC (HP a250y) suddenly stopped working and I traced the problem to the PSU (I used another PSU to verify this).

Well, I don't have a clue what to look for in a replacement PSU, besides the max power rating. The original PSU is Bestec ATX-250-12Z. So, I need a PSU with at least a 250W max out, that is ATX form factor(?). The main connector is a 20 pin. I also need at least 4 peripheral connectors w/ 1 floppy drive connector, and an ATX12V P4 connector.

Looking at newegg, there is A LOT to choose from with many different types available (ATX, ATX12V, ATX12V/EPS12V, ATX12V/MicroATX, and MicroATX).

I just need some guidance. Looking to spend $30-$40...that seems to be the average price of the PSUs on newegg that are 250-300W.

Thank you

The Bestec you are replacing is nothing special. This supply will be much better:

Is all of the RAM recognized by the motherboard and listed in the BIOS? Is all of the RAM listed in Windows System Properties?

Hello,

My computer has been making a humming sound after it has been on a while. I took off the sides and blew out the dust, and alot came out of the fans. I noticed that one of the fans blades did not turn freely when I blew air on it. Hooked up the power cable and turned it on and the fan did not turn. Once and awhile it tried to turn but then would stop again. The fan is mounted on the motherboard and has ABIT printed on it. It is the smaller of the two fans mounted on the motherboard. How difficult is it to replace and what is it called? Is it the motherboard fan? Thanks for any advice.
