    Help troubleshooting hardware problem

    Just looking at the mobo, I can't see anything wrong. Problem is I don't have anything to test anything on. I can actually test with another PSU, though I don't think there really is a lot of point until I get working ram in there to see if it boots, and even then, if it's the mobo that's dodgy...

    Help troubleshooting hardware problem

    Ok, well I found a mobo speaker tonight, tried it out and according to asus, both my sticks of ram are dead. But something I noticed while trying out both gpus and the ram in different slots, is it sometimes didn't beep and seemed like it didn't have any juice. Like it sounded pretty quiet even...

    Help troubleshooting hardware problem

    So I got the 5450 and chucked it in today (couldn't try it earlier as I had to go away for a few days) and nada. So I need to find out where to buy a speaker. Don't really wanna wait another 2 weeks for one off ebay.. It's funny, I just sold a bunch of old computer parts, cases and junk from...

    Help troubleshooting hardware problem

    Alright, I tried pulling it out of the case and set it up on my wooden desk but no luck. Won't be getting a can of air as they cost like $20+ here in New Zealand! I'm getting a cheap brand new HD5450 1GB (got it for $10), should be here tomorrow so I'll try it out :). And I can't find where to...

    Help troubleshooting hardware problem

    Yep I made sure everything was seated properly 100 times :p, and yeah no onboard video. I'll have a look for a real cheap PCI GPU then. Alright I'll give this a try. I'm positive it's not the monitor cable as I've tried two different DVI cables and even a different VGA monitor. Thanks a...

    Help troubleshooting hardware problem

    Hey guys, so I have a bit of a problem with my old desktop and need some help figuring out exactly what is wrong. So what happens is I turn it on, the fans come on and everything lights up and seems fine, but it won't get a video signal. At first I thought it may be the graphics card, but I...

    Need a new laptop !

    Looking into the Asus G53 series, what do you guys reckon about 1.5GB gtx 460m vs 2GB gtx 560m? Worth it for the less than $100 saving? Asus is also very good for me because of their global warranty. http://www.xoticpc.com/custom-gaming-laptops-notebooks-asus-laptops-ct-95_51_163.html

    Need a new laptop !

    Well I am open to importing from the US but yeah, import tax can be a bitch haha. Like I said, battery charge is no biggie. Main thing is a nice looking design, quality of the manufacturer, and now thinking about it a full HD display would be pretty nice, though not really required. I would...

    how would i put a sound system in my car?

    First of all, it is best if you do some research. http://www.crutchfield.com/App/Learn/Article/Category.aspx?c=3 is a good place to start. To be honest, there is a lot less research to do than before you build a computer so have a good read and find out what you want.

    BSOD Problem

    Hey guys, I have a problem with my dads laptop, and I have no idea what's up with it. First of all, it could not validate itself, saying it was because of a incompatible program or driver. So I bascially took off everything that wasn't already on the computer when he bought it, updated drivers...

    I can't properly set it in this POS, only as a NAT rule and I tried it (with and without the port forwarding) and it doesn't change at all. Thanks though. Also, it doesn't have UPnP. Well I ordered that other router, should get here soon and hopefully it will work good lol.
