Re: Yay, graphics card/PSU problem

Hey sorry for the delay in response, I've spent the last few days in a drunken stupor, I've sent the graphics card in they received it today and i am awaiting the confirmation on a replacement, but i've made no modifications to it, did nothing on my own volition to harm it, no power outages to fry i...

Re: Yay, graphics card/PSU problem

When you say that the PC doesn't turn on when power is connected to the video card, what do you mean by that? Do you mean that nothing is displayed on the screen, or that literally nothing turns on - the fans don't spin, the hard drives don't spin up, no flashy LEDs anywhere, etc.? It is the latter...

Re: Instruments you wish you played

I play the guitar and am decent and I own a violin but I stopped taking lessons when I moved and it was fun even though my teacher started me on an elementary level (which you kind of have to with violin), but if I were to pick up another instrument it would be violin, or cello. Come to think of it,...

Re: Should "Friday" be made a book?

I was really upset when I clicked on this thread. I thought we were talking about Ice Cubes "Friday".

Frowny face.

Re: Yay, graphics card/PSU problem

Newer piezo ones look like this: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/imagessubs/blog18a1d14dd0a4ccf9c8d355c44d869a03.jpg I see that connected to my motherboard, but I cannot recall ever hearing any beeps when powering on my computer. Since I know I have one let me try to power it on without the video card ag...

Re: Yay, graphics card/PSU problem

I have an ASUS M4A79T deluxe motherboard. Not sure if that has one or not, but is it just like a card that you slide into one of the slots by the PCI's?

Re: Yay, graphics card/PSU problem

You could try unplugging the power cord and then pressing the power button for about 30 seconds to one minute. Then plug the power cord back in and try to turn the computer on again. Have you tried using different connectors from the power supply or putting the card in a different PCI slot? When yo...

Re: Yay, graphics card/PSU problem

I was thinking that my video card may be bugged somehow cause it doesn't turn on when power is hooked to it via 2 6-pin connectors. But is it possible that the 6-pins are shorting out when trying to send power to the video card?

Yay, graphics card/PSU problem

Ok, here's what happened. I was sitting at home yesterday on the internet and reading a forum when my computer just shuts off. I thought maybe the power flicked or something and so I try to turn it back on, no dice. So I start unplugging crap to see where and what is causing the problem. I unplugged...

Re: Color problem

It's a Magnavox from like 92. I don't really feel like pulling it out from where it is to check the model number. I'm really just not gonna bother with it. We've had it for 10+ years, it needs a retirement. I've messed with the settings and changed the 90% of fucked up colors into black and white, s...

Re: Color problem

Well it's for my t.v. and I'm not sure how to take the cover off without completely taking off the chassis.
Would anyone know what kind of store would sell a degauss coil?

Yeah, but i don't think it could possibly get any worse. If it does I'll just get a new one.

Re: Color problem

Well when the color thing happened it was sudden and the only electronic things near it were like game systems, a DVD player that probably wasn't plugged in and a VCR. I have been talking with friends and people and they have mentioned trying to degauss it. I don't have any magnets or magnetic wire ...

Color problem

It's a t.v. related question, but it is hardware related i think. I came home one day and turned on my t.v. and the color was all out of whack. The corner colors are messed up with a donut ring inside that with normal color and a circle in that with messed up colors and another circle in that with m...
