Re: Precision 650 problem

Unfortunately not the Hard drive. I unplugged the two and plugged in a known good one. It still ended up with the Dell boot device menu being the last thing that was displayed.

Re: SSD recommendations

The hard drive light going crazy means something is always accessing it.In the old days that usually meant not enough RAM.

Re: sold a bad motherboard

I find it odd that so many are down on ASUS motherboards. I ran one of the P4P800 series motherboards 24 hours a day for weeks at a time doing batch video encoding where the CPU is at 100% and never...

Re: sold a bad motherboard

This may be a stupid question did you check to see if it had warranty with ASUS. I believe they give years of warranty. If you can make it look new where you were working........

Re: acer 5920 g blinking power adapter

The way I think about it quite simple. If the part isn't needed the manufacturer would have saved their money and not installed them.

Re: MacBook Pro Hard Disck to SSD Ocz Agility 3...

real shame they used that brand of SSD. I'm only using Intel SSDs. It may not be the fastest SSD like the OCZ, However the OCZ has a poor reliability record. They really don't get along with Dell...

Re: Laptop upgrade advice

The R52 tends to have the same video chip problem as the T41, T42 series from what I've seen. The ATI chip needs to be reballed as it gets older.
