  • Re: New PC build won't start

    Yeah, I was mainly meaning the components but there's also the hassle of arranging for the faulty one to be picked up and waiting for a replacement. Plus I'll have to clean and apply new thermal paste to the CPU/heatsink which is something I've never done before. I've only ever attached new heatsinks with their ready applied paste. I

  • Re: New PC build won't start

    OK I've done a bit more messing around and I think (only think, still not certain) I've isolated the problem. There are six SATA ports on the Mobo. The problem with booting seems to only occur when you try to boot from the SATA1 port (which seemed the natural choice for the boot device) That said, when I do get the PC up and running there is

    Hi Gamemaniac. Thanks for replying The checks that i have done so far is to try to boot the machine with individual components removed, replaced or in different sockets (in all possible combinations). this is based on the truobleshooting page of my MoBo's manual. I'm not very knowledgable about all this so I'm not really sure what other

    Hi MD and thanks very much for your input. I have not tried swapping the battery, hopefully the one from my old Mobo should be compatiable. I'll give that a go later. (I'm posting from my work PC at the moment so dont have anything to hand). Mind you, when I was taking the battery out to reset the CMOS, I did apply comprehensive scientific testing

    Hi Bob and thanks very much for replying. I've been fighting with the PC since I got in form work. Clearing the CMOS does work..... for a while. After 1-3 reboots or so, I'm back where I started. Clearing the CMOS again can get things working again but, even then, it can take a few attempts. I only have one memory stick, but trying it in different

  • New PC build won't start

    Hello I'm posting this here because I'm guessing this is a motherboard problem. I built a new PC about a month ago using the components in my sig. It was working fine up until yesterday. There have been no hardware changes since being built. The CPU, MoBo and RAM were bought for the new build. The graphics card, HDD and PSU were taken from my

    Thanks for replying guys I've uninstalled 1.1 and the yellow shield has finally disappeared so I assume that's problem solved. I'm just waiting for something to not work because of this but I've always got JTM's suggestion if that happens. Cheers folks

  • .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 Automatic Update problem

    Hello Since yesterday, I've constantly had the Windows Automatic Update yellow shield at the bottom right of my screen saying updates are ready & click here to install. The update in question is always .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1. When I OK the install, the updater progress thingy appears for about 15 seconds and then it says: The following

  • Re: System reboots when copying from DVD drive

    Thanks very much for replying. There is actually no problem with burning DVD/CDs it is specifically tranferring data from DVD/CD ROM to hard disk that causes the problem. This happens with TWO different DVD drives. Unfortunately swapping out components with other PC's to isolate the problem is not an option. All components/connectors in the machine

  • System reboots when copying from DVD drive

    Hello Strange one this: When I try to copy files from data DVDs to my C drive, it gets so far, then the PC spontaneously reboots (how far it gets before rebooting varies). I have checked the power and data connections to the DVD drive (both drive and mobo side) and they seem Ok. I have tried swapping for another drive and the same thing happens. I have
