Re: Keyboard and mouse losing connection on start up

Sounds like the strangeness that happens with Asus' socket 1366 motherboards, at least sometimes.

It's like what happens with my Corsair Strafe keyboard. I would have to pull out the keyboard USB...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Yep, but don't forget to get a heatsink, LOL. Mine was super hot without a heatsink! (back in 2000, IIRC)

That was when I also got 20 MB of RAM for it, it was a system from 1993, IIRC, came with a...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Do you mean CMOS checksum error? (and not the BIOS per se, the BIOS chip, would be a ROM checksum error)

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Like a UEFI-BIOS update on recent motherboards. (normal)




I got words that this also can happen as a symptom of bad RAM, when attempting to use XMP/AMP with bad RAM. Then it most likely will...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Makes me suspicious about greed! Looks much like the same kind of bullshit as in the late-Bush era! That era was known as "foreclosure-city"!

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Because of the fact that 1366 is the only one with triple-channel and all the others dual-channel (or quad-channel with the newer ultra-high-end-segment platforms, notably Intel Xyyy, IIRC)

Of...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

SOB! Reminds me of my Radeon RX 5500 XT 8 GB that I got in August, 2020, IIRC. Ironically, it never got used even once, until the RX 5600 XT became a fancy paper weight!

It works fine, but the...

Re: Klipsch computer subwoofer speakers hissing buzzing. Does this look like bad cap?

Looks like a minor bulge, to me! A noob will think it's OK!

Re: ZUMAX Technology (Leadman Power) ZU400W (X1), Modifications & Life Test

Zumax=The only variant I remember seeing with that brand, is feloniously bad! :barf:

Possibly much worse than Apevia!

Re: Topcat's Other Misc Weird Build Thread

Reminded me of 2004, where I was still happy with 256 MB of DDR1 SDRAM, but the guy I was with, told me that it was out of stock, so I was able to get 512 MB of PC2700 DDR1 SDRAM, LOL. (most likely...

Re: Topcat's Other Misc Weird Build Thread

I remember coming across a Pentium 166 for the group home PC at Crotched Mountain Rehabilitation Center. It sure was one of the late-1990s' greatest hits!

And, of course the same for when I saw a...

Re: Razer blade crashes while updating bios and does not turn on

Did you see a BSOD error? A software problem with the flasher or the BIOS chip is faulty.

Re: P4C800 Deluxe broken cap

450 MHz FSB=Reminds me of my Wolfy (45nm Core 2 Duo) E8400 C0 (an early one with the minimum temp getting stuck at 45C or similar, IIRC) test that I did in 2013.

(Actually, that's on socket 775,...

Re: P4C800 Deluxe broken cap

anti-aliasing=The would be the GPU.

16x anisotropic is known to give excellent results without a notable drop in FPS with pretty much any video card since 2002!

Re: P4C800 Deluxe broken cap

Chemi-con KZG-series caps are known for lasting for a fair while, then suddenly failing! Especially for 2004 and 2005 KZGs, you'll be lucky to get 10 years before they suddenly bulge and leak!

Re: Topcat's Ultimate Pentium 4 Retro Gamer!

I can imagine people doing this now with the VRAM on modern video cards.

Re: PSU weaken - occasional reset

That PSU looks much better than expected for Raidmax!

Albeit it's likely overrated in watts, wouldn't be surprised if the components are intended for 500W to maybe 750W.

Those caps, however, is...

One long and three short bleeps=it means video init failure. I'm afraid it's dead.

Re: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX REV.2 bios chip problems, probably socket shorted?

Don't know, sorry. Especially that you installed a GTX 970, a much more sane card.
