Preferred Solution: Replacement

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

Good day, I decided to change on his laptop celeron 1000M processor intel core i3 3120M, but after changing the CPU the laptop is not longer activated, the light is blinking on caps lock and nothing else happens, not even starts the download of the BIOS. Is it possible to replace the processor on my laptop?

A:Replacement CPU.

Hi,Blinking of the cap locks key means there is some sort of hardware problem the CPU could be faulty or not compatible. So I can help give you a clear diagnostic please tell me exactly how many times it is the caps lock key blinks and how many are long and short blinks. Many thanks,James

I don't know where this thread belongs, or even if it's relevant to tsg, but here goes: A friend has a Dell XP desktop. She lost her original installation discs, and called Dell for a replacement. 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. I thought that you would pay for some kind of service charge if your installation CD got lost or damaged. Did Dell make a mistake? Is this normal business procedure?

I've decided it would prob be best just to replace the internal disc drive in my laptop but would prefer not to buy anything else Desknote related(not that there is a whole lot of options for parts).

The pc is a Desknote A928
running XP
current using slim drive QSI DVD/CDRW SBW-081
Any suggestions on another brand that would be compatible and worth buying.

A:Replacement cd/dvd help

it is going to be hard without being able to compare the old drive next to the new drive to make sure it is going to be physically compatible. My Dell can use a few different drives yst they will not physically be the same and therefore even though they fit in the drive bay there is no way of securing them. There fore using what Dell has to offer is MY only option.

You may be better suited for a different drive though. I would make sure that you have a return policy if it doesnt work with what you buy.

Additional Features: ATX Formfactor, Supports 8X AGP, Supports DDR400 Max 12GB, Supports ATA133, Supports Serial ATA, Supports 6 Channel Audio, USB 2.0 Support, On-board LAN

My memory is:

My old CPU was:

Intel Core 2 Duo E7600, S775, Wolfdale 45nm, 3.06 GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 3MB Cache, 11.5x Ratio, 65W

My Question is, Will this be worth the ?90?

Hi i would suggest you to get a Quad Core (Core2Quad) instead if you can increase your budget a bit coz as you've mentioned that you do gaming and as new games taking advantage of 4 cores so it would be nice though E7600 is a good processor and you will see quiet much improvements compare to Celeron

I have an HP Compaq 6510b notebook that needs a new hard drive. The existing one isnt damaged, just nearly full. I dont know why, in all the years of computing Ive never had to do this. Possibly because previous PC's have become obsolete before the HD needed changing.
Now I'm pretty sure the Hard drive I want is a 2.5" SATA, and after watching youtube videos I'm fairly confident I can do the job, but {and this is the question I really should know the answer to after 20 years of computing} what I dont understand is, presumably when you fit a new HD it doesnt have an operating system on it, so do you need to buy a new one? I have an authentic version of Windows on it currently, but it didnt come with the disks, so presumably I cant use that?
This is probably very basic stuf,f so please forgive my ignorance.

Hi, first of all, I am not really a tech guy and I dont know anything about hardwares so that is why I am posting here.

I have a Toshiba A25-S207 laptop running windows xp. The hard drive crashed a while ago, and i need to buy a new one. The hard drive that was in is : 40GB* hard disk drive, Enhanced IDE (ATA-5), 4200rpm, 9.7mm height, 0.2lbs, Service Removable. Can anybody tell what can i replace it with? And also can i use the Recovery DVD that comes with the laptop to install the drivers and the OS?

Help is appreciated.

A:Possible HDD Replacement

The hard disk must be a Parallel ATA (aka PATA or IDE) of just about any one of that type that is available.

ATA 100 Drives

ATA 133 drives

Short education on the use of the term "IDE": Both the old 40-pin IDE drives and the newer Serial ATA drives are IDE devices; but, people generally mis-apply the term "IDE" as distinguishing the older 40-pin drives as IDE.

Can someone tell me how to buy the right fan as I bought one before but the computer didn't work after it was installed. Reinstalled the old one and the computer worked perfectly except for the noise. Does it go by the device id in device manager i.e: Processor Device ID: ACPI\GENUINEINTEL_._x86_FAMILY_15_MODEL_2\_0 or is there somewhere/something else that will tell me.

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
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...

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:

Ok, emachine, t2984, Failed HDD, replaced with identical HDD that had been formatted. Hitachi Deskstar 80g. I have the restore DVD. It will load up. I can see the ghost images and it loads successfully. After all loaded, reboot, then I can see it going into a blue screen but reboots itself. I think it says missing C:windows system32 blah blah..ok. Yes I tried rebuilding the BOOTCFG. Will not work. Ok. so this is where I am at, I believe that I need to tattoo the HDD and can do this blind folded with an HP, however, emachine is being stubborn. I can not find any information on this whatsoever, its like a black hole of information to find the iso tattoo program for emachine. Can anyone in here point me in the right direction to tattoo (Flash) so that the restore disk will work properly. Yes I could reinstall a new OS but its a friend and he can't afford it right now. You know how it is when your friends come to you and need a favor, next thing you know its eating every minute of your life away.


A:Help with HDD replacement

Your eMachine T2984 is a high failure rate motherboard... well in excess of 60% after two years... Your problem could easily be caused by the eMachine motherboard failure. Your hard drive that came in the eMachines is likely good, as is the cpu, cpu fan, modem, and optical drive. But the motherboard and power supply are of such high failure rate that you will need to test them thoroughly with a power supply tester... and trying your hard drive and other components in another board.

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. Can any of you tell what size of fan it's using? Thanks.

I have an eMachine W4065 (yea yea i know its junk thats why i'm upgrading) and i bought a new maxtor hard drive for it... when i disassembled the old hard drive it looks totally different from the one i bought... the one i bought is all enclosed in a little black square and has the plugs. my old hard drive though has circuit boards attached to it and everything else. Will the drive i bought be able to work somehow that i haven't noticed or did i just waste my money? thanks for any help

Been using Act! for several years on a desktop PC running XP, 32-bit. Just discovered Act! will not run on the new Win7, 64-bit machine we just set up to replace the dead XP machine. I need a replacement for Act!, something that tracks names, dates, appointments, addresses, phone numbers, etc. and that will pop up on-screen reminders.

Suggestions, please. Willing to spend up to $100.
