I recently replaced the motherboard, wifi card, and switch on my Dell XPS12. Now when powered up, it will shut down on its own within a few minutes. What to check / replace next?

So I basically tried to make a gaming pc, first one. And I encountered a big problem. I thought I had everything set up and connected (with the disappointment that my Gigabyte Z370 Ultra Gaming didn’t support RGB) but when I went to turn it on for a final test, the motherboard flickered a little of the led it has and just did nothing at all. I pressed the power button then the fans came on and a red light came on on the motherboard. But it continuously turned off and on by itself within the span of like 10 …

Hello, Short Summary: My desktop unexpectedly turns off (note, does not shut down, but simply turns off), usually while I am playing high intensity games, like Playerunknown Battlegrounds. To circumvent this problem, I bought and installed a new power supply (750W). The issue happens less frequently, but has still happened twice since installing the new power supply a couple weeks ago. There are no beeps sounding when I boot, and there are no error messages or warnings given. Specs: See attached DxDiag.txt. I appreciate any suggestions for how to combat this. Please let me know what I can do to …

Dell XPS410 Vista Home Premium SP2 I am having multiple problems with my computer. One is a racing CPU fan. Before I can tackle that, I need to know how to get the computer out of power saving mode. The instructions say to strike any keyboard key or move mouse. Please note: When my computer goes into power saving mode, there is no power to the keyboard nor mouse, so neither can be used to get out of power saving mode. I cannot access the BIOS. I have tried many things I found on the Internet. Nothing works. I tried …

Hi, Recently I started to encounter a new issue with my 3 year old PC. It sometimes turns off randomly, then turns back on after a few seconds. It can happen anytime, even when OS has not booted yet. Sometimes it turns off and on repeatedly, like struggling to keep powered on. Overheating should not be the issue because it has happened right after I turn ir on for the first time that day. Nothing new has been added or installed recently. Also not overclocked. Could it be a faulty PSU or other hardware? Thanks

My Toshiba L770 Satellite Laptop does not power up, no LEDs lit when power adapter is plugged in. Power adapter producing 19.4 volts. Opened up laptop and got 19.4 volts at end of power connector harness when not connected to motherboard and approx 0.5 volts at connector pins on motherboard when adapter is connected. Visual inspection of motherboard showed no obvious problems. Battery doesn't have any affect, whether installed or removed. Also removed BIOS battery for 30 seconds and reinstalled. Still no sign of life from laptop. Does this sound like a bad motherboard? Thanks, LPM

My daughter had problems starting her laptop for about a year. She would press the power key and sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't. Sometimes it would take 10 or more tries before it worked and then it would power on. Other times even after 10 tries she would get nothing, then taking out the battery and starting with the power cord would work. The other day none of those things worked and now the laptop won't start at all! When we press the power button there is no sound and the power light (the lightening bolt) blinks …

[attach=right]13756[/attach]Portable gizmos that claim to charge your cellphone or iPod on the move are two a penny these days.

Hi. I just wanna ask your opinion.. Which will be the best solution. I have a laptop with faulty screen. I don't think I want to repair it as it cost high. It is 2gb ram,320gb hdd and dual-core. In another hand, my family has a family PC with 512 ram,100gb hdd,pentium 4.. So I'm thinking about instead of using the laptop as CPU (remove the screen) and attach it to the monitor. Can I know what will be the side effect? Does it consume more power to use such that? Will it be dangerous to electrical? TQ in advance! …

Hi everyone, I'm trying to figure out if there is any way to do exponents using bit shifting. I know the following: x *= 2 --> x << 2 x /= 2 --> x >> 2 pow(2, x) --> 1 << x i'm looking for the equivalent bitshift, if any, for x = pow(x, 2) where x can be any number i've seen the following for x = 5 x = 0101 (5) x << 2 --> 010100 (20) x + 0101 --> 011001 (25) but then that is not true for other numbers :(

Hi there, Earlier this year I had a problem with my computer. When I was using it to play games and perform other quite CPU intensive tasks it would become sluggish and laggy. Usually a restart would fix it for a while. The problem got worse and worse until it started to turn itself off when things got rough. It would do this more and more frequently and easily to the point where it wouldn't turn on. After some investigation I found that my PSU was fried so I bought another one and replaced it. Problem solved. Until now. The …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]15727[/ATTACH]Green is in these days, and so is saving money. The EcoStrip 2.0 looks like a common power strip with built-in surge protection but it actually works to save you money while reducing your carbon footprint. The EcoStrip 2.0 comes with a USB connector that you plug into your PC to activate its magic ability. Once connected it knows when you shut down your PC [or Mac], then it cuts all power to the remaining ports on the power strip. Everything else you plug into the EcoStrip stops drawing power the moment your computer is off. According to the [URL="http://www.iea.org/"]International …

I have a very old Vaio laptop (PCG-Z505JE). Has had very few problems but the two it did have were fixed by great help here at DaniWeb. As of this morning, for the first time, the on switch on the right side did not turn it on. I think the problem is the switch because the battery pack showed 100% charge in a similar computer. Any advice on repairing this myself? Hopefully not too terribly complex. If not, is there some sort of workaround to get the power on without the normal switch? If this can't be done, can I …

Hello, I'm trying to install a second graphics card in my PC. The problem is, there are only two 6 pin(I think that's the right word) power connectors for my PSU. I have two IDE power -> 6 pin adapters. If I put both of those adapters on the same IDE power line that is coming from my PSU, will it harm my PC in any way?

Hi I am fairly new at programming, I am working on a final project for my assembly language class where I am calculating college savings, this is the formula I believe I will end up using, fv= pv(1+(r/n))^nt, but I am in desperate need of help in writing that in to code in regards to the base * power.

I have a dell dimension 8250 that I've had for quite a while. Up until now I've been able to fix all of its problems but I was swapping out a hard drive and I accidently pulled out half of the power cord and the computer short circuited and it took about 5 minutes till I could boot it but when I booted it it couldn't find my hard drives at all. I've tried doing a forced IDE config I've switched the hard drives and switched the power supply. The bios menu still shows that I have all my ram. …

Hello, I have been having an issue where when I run on my treadmill my 2 Wire modem (From Bell Canada) encounters an error of some sort and turns off my internet access. I have heard from many people that it's possible a small surge is being sent of the power lines when the treadmill is on and it is causing some sort of interference. I have tried powering the modem into a different outlet, and that was to no success. I tred placing the modem at a different "jack" but apaprently only one jack in my house will supply …

Hi. My Gateway notebook- mt6452 - will not power on. I recently updated it to Windows 7. Within a few days, I tried to turn it on and the power button was outlined in blue as if it was turning on, in a few minutes it blinked once. This went on until I finally lost hope and shut the lid. I plugged it in and left it to charge for a day or two. It still did the same as before. I have tried many things but none have worked, I am practically open to anything. I bought this computer …

At the time i thought there was a slot not working on the power strip. I re pluged it in somewhere else and it turned on. But today i tried that again after getting a new power strip and it wouldn't turn on at all. i tryed different cables and that didn't work as well. The green light is on the MOBO and the PSU is about a month old. after all …

Two incidents: Last night, I had my HP Pavilion dv9620us notebook PC running, and was using both Microsoft Word (with a few windows open) and Internet Explorer. (I'm running Windows Vista.) I went away for a little while, and when I came back, the screen was dark, as it should have been to save either power or the display (I don't know which). But its power light was flashing (blue, if it matters--that's its usual color), and when I pressed the power button, which usually makes it shut down or start up, nothing happened. I tried pressing, pressing and holding …

Pros: HARDCORE COVERAGE! Easy installation Lots of options dual band USB sharing 4 guest networks per band fast nice setup menus that look good and easy to navigate lots of security support connections are solid Cons: only thing is lack of print server, other than that it's perfect. Other Thoughts: This AMPED WIRELESS! access point has hardcore coverage!! I can stream a youtube vid from 150 ft away from the AP (outside down the road) with not much effort. That alone makes it worth it. Also this is good for xbox live gaming as well... worked just as good as …

After installing it, the mouse driver disappeared and I had to reinstall the drivers. I shut it down, watched it go black, and a few seconds later I saw that was back on. I shut it down again, same thing. I watched it this time and after 7 seconds it goes back on. I don't see traces of BSOD but disabled auto restart to be …
