Re: Soldering with a tremor.

Is it only a hand-tremor? (hand shaking) I tend to get that when holding Intel CPUs, right before getting them into the socket!

Re: Killed my Asus A7V266-E? Need advice

In that era, "-VM"s have things disabled by Asus. The "-VM"s of that era, are synonymous with crippled!

While the "-E"s OTOH, are synonymous with loaded, especially with the Asus A7N8X-E of 2004....

Re: Old stock capacitors

Sounds like a bad solder joint or Android panicking and rebooting itself.

Re: Not Even BCN's Russia Connections Can Top This One - Supermicro S2DGU Build

It's been sitting for months now, hoping that it's not a bad socket pin to the IMC! As I apparently can't even use the same "addition RAM" that I can in another Asus X58 motherboard, FFS!
Because I...

Re: It's "patch-Tuesday", people!

Yes! Thus down the road, it's possible that people will be angry at the whatever-thing that got changed.

Re: It's "patch-Tuesday", people!

Yes, Microsoft will tell you the fixes in the update, but 10 normally just goes ahead and attempts to update, even when done the wrong way, apparently, sometimes.

Re: It's "patch-Tuesday", people!

It wasn't disastrous like the March patch-Tuesday.

No Windows Update error code shown in March, but SFC, with the /scannow parameter, apparently failed the March update(s).

And BTW, the SFC...

Re: Acer Aspire 4738 dark display after 2 minutes

Do you on the back side of the motherboard see what look like four rectangular SMD components? (where the CPU is, look on the back side of the motherboard)

Re: Acer Aspire 4738 dark display after 2 minutes

May be bad CPU caps. (SMD caps on the motherboard, possibly faulty NEC/Tokin caps)

Re: New SSD hard drive in laptop computer what a difference in boot time

I wouldn't say that yet! SSDs, especially for ones that are less than $60-ish, you're at a higher risk of silent OS corruption. Check the event log for what look like drive-related errors, if you use...

Was the CPU Vcore at 1.77V? That's way too much for Intel, unless it's a Willy!

Re: Antec Earthwatts EA-500 500w PSU

Fan issues? That reminds me of the ill-fated SmartPower series, which the last one, was probably manufactured in 2005, maybe 2006.

Re: HP DPS-340CB A - lots of smoke!
