    socket 7 system not posting

    Not posting after some efforts and cleaning of the board. I also used the psu from the celeron and his Virge DX. I don't know if the processors are having issues. Who knows. I didn't store them appropriate, I've just had them to my bookshelf for decoration. The good thing is that I have an...

    The capacitors and the board seems ok. I think if the board was dead, the board will not giving the beep code errors and the chipsets would not be heating up. I don't remember, on those old motherboards to clear the cmos must do it by removing the battery only, or by using the jumper settings...

    Iomega Zip Drive 100 ide not detected

    It's dead, I changed the IDE cables and also tested it with the external IDE to usb case adapter and it doesn't works. My father told me that it's been 4 years since last time used it. So, the drive was working for 12 years. It was a backup device for company management software.

    ASRock X370 Taichi (AMD AM4)

    I don't like the color. Too bad Gigabyte not manufactures motherboards with blue pcb anymore.

    Usb card reader prevents Windows 7x64 SP1 to enter to sleep mode

    Hibernation mode works without an issue. Only when the sleep mode is selected the problem occurs. The driver of the usb hub is the generic of microsoft. I couldn't find anywhere an appropriate driver. So it's definitely a Windows issue.

    Usb card reader prevents Windows 7x64 SP1 to enter to sleep mode

    Unfortunately there's no power management tab. No I will not buy another card reader, eidairaman1 because on Linux sleep mode works. So it's not a hardware error.

    Which rx 480 to choose?

    Sapphire Nitro 8G+... The best. XFX is a dirty company. I still remember my 7970 Black Edition, which had custom XFX pcb with no dual bios switch.
