PostSubject: REPO's Awsome Computer is down, for good?   Mon 11 Jul 2011 - 19:13

Hey guys I recently got some computer problems and will be unable to get on the server to play.

All I know is I put my computer on sleep left it for about ½ an hour to an hour and when I went to wake the darn thing up the CPU fan was running really fast and one of my drives was making big noise like it was banging its little head in there. No display read out on monitor. Doesn’t even boot up. I think it finally took a dump. But what the hell happened? Overheated? When I unplugged the drive the CPU fan is still full throttle. What does that indicate?
No

have a nicer day

Repo, try disconnecting everything, and reconnecting it. Hopefully you have an anti-static strap, so you don't destroy anything.

If you don't have an anti-static strap, then take your shoes and socks off, and make sure some part of your body is always touching the case of the computer, so your body stays grounded, and you don't build up a static charge, which can potentially fry some electronics.

Also, try letting your computer sit off for a few hours, then turn it back on. Be sure to remove any extra hardware (i.e. video cards, modems, etc.) before you reboot the computer, in case something got corrupted (I've had a video card get corrupted, rendering it useless, and caused bizarre problems with my computer).

If that doesn't help, try looking for any blown capacitors:

If the tops are bulged a good amount, the capacitor is likely blown. If you have a decent quality camera, take some close pictures of any suspect capacitor's, and I'll tell you if they're blown, or on their way out.

Will do Sin thanks

Great picture

I don't want to blame the my child but It's a good chance she was banging it when I was outside working.
She seems to like playing with the mouse and pressing the bright blue button when Daddy's playing on it.

Will take apart tonight and see what I can find out. Just crappy I don't have a laptop to surf the net for answers.

Aloha

Okay guys I figured it out after disconnecting and reconnecting everything one at a time.

To make a long story short I will cut the chase and just say it was the graphics card. The card looks ok besides all the dust on it. I also noticed some of the part that connects “that small gold line “to the PCIE plug is missing must have broken off when I pulled it. I want to play so I am going down to not so Best Buy to grab a better one. Not gonna spend too much since the computer is going downhill.
Hope to be on tonight


Aloha

Okay short update.

Ordered Graphics Card today via internet and should get next week some time.

In the mean time I had another problem with my awesome computer the dang sound went out, it just didn’t want to work everything was fine, the cord, monitor and drivers all okay.

I went nuts for a couple days then finally saw something on YOU TUBE about the Bios so that’s what I did and yeppers it worked!

Boy am I dying to play!!

Oh the joys of updating our computers...LOL


I myself had gone through this a couple of times now and know exactly how you feel.



No worries repo, we will be here when you are up and running and at that point can kick some sniper azz again while drinking a few brews...LOL

Lol, maybe you should make yourself a regular account on your computer, rather than an administrator account. That might help with some of the problems.
