  1. How do i get into safe mode. it goes straight into windows, the furthest i can go is the log in screen. edit: nevermind i figured it out how to get into safe mode
  2. I'm not in safe mode. It goes straight into windows.
  3. well, on the screen that lets me go into safe mode. there was an option that said "load from last known configuration" so i clicked on that. It seems to be working, however i need to reactivate windows. the problem with that is i'm not getting an internet connection to allow me to do that.
  4. i tried that in safe mode. and it still does not work. i am a little confused on the "type" part of it. i "clicked" on start, run, load normal start up.
  5. I got my new MB today and i put everything back together. The MB seems to be working fine, i can get to the bios screen and load windows xp sp2 in safe mode, but it wont load it normally. whats my problem now?
  6. so pretty much just like a one drop. a grain of rice is pretty small.
  7. it looks like a good board, i think ill go with it. now when i switch my cpu, do i need to apply thermal grease.
  8. what do you think of this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157139 I kinda like the instant boot technology. I'm not sure how will that will work with my dual boot, but i've been thinking about getting rid of linux anyway, i never use it.
  9. i just wanted to make sure. is there much of a difference between the micro boards and regular? Will ddr2 800 ram work in a ddr2 1066?
  10. If the motherboard has onboard nvidia graphics will it work with my ATI radeon graphics card? This is one im looking at. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131318
  11. Well, I need a new motherboard. Most of you know my problem already. So now i need suggestions on a new motherboard. Cheaper is better, I don't want to spend alot of money on this. Here's some of the minimum requirements: AMD Athlon 64 X2 (but able to run a quad core if I decide to upgrade in the future) DDR2 800MHz ram (preferable 4 slots, even though i only have 2- 1gig sticks) ATI Radean HD 3850 PCI Express 2.0 16x DVI output(VGA, HDMI optional) 2 USB ports Onboard video a plus, but not necessary Atleast 1 lineout audio jack(everything else is optional) If you need anything else just let me know. This is one I found: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128376 (Its very similar to the one I already have) Edit: there no rush on this, I just wanted to get a good idea on whats out there.
  12. when i had that old crappy PS in, it was working. but what your saying is that because of the PS somehow shorted out the MB. If this was a year ago i wouldn't really care if i had to buy another one. I had money a year ago.
  13. oh well, Nothing is going to get me more pissed off at it i took out all of the ram and tried it and there should be a beep to indicate that there is no ram, but there is no beep. it is looking more like the MB is bad.
  14. correct, its started running as soon as i plug it into the wall. everything seems to run fine. There are NO beeps(i'm not sure if there was any before this problem, because i never paid attention to that) On a side note I just found out i an take my MB out of my case without actually unscrewing everything. heres a pic. (the pic was taken with my cell phone so its kinda poor quality)
  15. Is there a way i can test the cpu to make sure its still good. I know that you can take it out and put it into another MB to see if it works, but i dont know anyone that has a MB that would work, everyone has intel. I've tried using only 1 stick and it didn't do anything. I could possibly take the memory out of my parents computer, but i'd have to see if theres would even work.
  16. last time i pulled the battery for a couple minutes. i've also tried the jumper as well i've also tested the battery and i get 3v out of it
  17. well i guess it wasn't really beeps, It was the noises of everything turning on.
  18. i just tried the other PS that worked before, now it does NOT work. That pretty much leave use with the MB and CPU
  19. since the time when it worked with a different PS, i switched the PS with an older one that noone was using, and during that time i had a power outage; which blew that PS(i think). and now here we are at the beginning again. I just tested the new PS and hard drive and they work just fine.
  20. thats some good advice but i did all that. i tried resetting the MB The MB does have onboard video I tried putting the video card in and still the same. I'm going to test all the components with another computer to make sure they all work.
  21. yeah im positive the 4 plugs on the MB is the only one that is an exact match. when i plug it in everything turnes on. i even here beeps. i just get no picture edit: cd drive works, hard drive is on(light is also on), cpu fans is running, both fans are running.
  22. the 4 connector attached to the main supplys are exactly the same as the ones on the MB. there are 2 other 4 pin connectors, one as 2 squares plugs diagnoly and the other one has 4 plugs with rounded corners.
  23. i took the extra 4 out but still the same. edit: on the 20 connector , one of the small plugs is missing, could this be a problem
  24. what? i dont even have the graphics card in
  25. well i got my new PS today. and when I connected everything i get NOTHING. its doing the same as the other PS's did. when i plug it in everything turns on. and nothing shows up on the monitor. What the hell could the problem be.
