Re: LG 60PV450 - Replaced Z-Sus, now display has purple snow/fuzz

Eek! Looks like it's got '00s-style glue!

(the dreaded brown stuff that's often seen on 2003 and 2004 equipment)

Re: Light bulb flicker when turning on after long time off.

That's like the ones that the same factory apparently manufactures for Feit. Yes, IIRC, there are Feit-branded ones at The Tractor Supply Company.
I found out that they are likely by far,...

Re: Samsung Syncmaster 245b BN44-00195A

Looks like it arced across the top of the PCB, from QM802 to BM801 and what looks like a resistor, albeit I probably can't see all the stripes.

Re: Acer v203HV turns pink to white display

Definitely older than 5 years old, can tell by the font of the Acer logo.

Re: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650W (MPY-6501-AFAAG) randomly won't turn on

Cooler Master MWE, is on my PSU ban list for potential bad caps and it earned a "meh" rating at Overclockers. com, IIRC.

Re: Socket 940/939 Cooler bracket failure

Back in 2001 and 2002, I only had a heatsink for socket 462 that connected to the middle tabs! Especially with a T-bird when gaming, losing a middle tab was death for them!

Re: b450 tomahawk max - dead

Darn it, those motherboards are supposed to be solid, unlike many AM3-era motherboards!

Re: Lenovo E560 NM-A561 - ACPI BIOS ERROR when install windows

ACPI and AHCI are not related.

ACPI is advanced configuration power interface, IIRC.

That error isn't normal for 10, BTW!

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I skipped the first-gen and second-gen Athlons, apparently. My first, was a T-bird 900 Mhz. Shouldn't even be a surprise, because my first Athlon build wasn't until 2001, probably June of that year,...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

The Athlon XP series didn't even get launched until 2001, with Palomino, which is after T-bird. T-bird was the most famous for being the first Athlon that a bunch of people got, albeit that wasn't...

Re: GTX280 not recognised by PC

I don't have a confirmation of such a hardware ban being imminent, but I have fear of Microsoft banning Nvidia GPUs older than the GeForce 10 series and the same for Radeons older than the RX400...

Re: "amd" ddr2...

When I had 8 GB of DDR2, I just mixed the sticks and ran them at 333 Mhz (666/667) with the RAM voltage at 1.90V.

Re: Recapped PowerMac 8100 PSU and now unstable

Sounds like maybe the PSU temp is too high. (or a thermal sensor problem)

Re: Topcat's Acer Dual Slot 1 Server?

The motherboard PSU connectors, look very transition-esque, more like I would expect during Klamath! (first-gen Pentium II)

I would have thought that by 1999 and later in 1998, it would have been...

Re: Building a gaming rig for my dad...

Good. While the MSI B450 Tomahawk, even when mine included a late enough BIOS, didn't support Matisse at the first BIOS release. Honestly looks like that's because they most likely first came out in...

Re: Building a gaming rig for my dad...

With a B450 motherboard, there's a possibility that the BIOS isn't even late enough to support Matisse! (the 3000 series, which is the third-gen Ryzen) Luckily, mine was.

Possibly need to get a...

Re: Building a gaming rig for my dad...

Looks like it's the CPU these days for 1080p bottlenecking. (unless the video hardware is weak)

That does appear to be true OTOH for 1440p. (CPU not used as much for 1440p)

Re: Sony KDL-40R510C suddenly gives code #6

Unlike the LG, LEDs or one of the LEDs, are more likely to fail without visibly failing.

I saw this YouTube video:

It doesn't even look that hard...
