Re: Mother board version issue ms-7184

Is that motherboard socket AM2? If AM2, then they probably came out in 2006, the year of the first-gen Core 2.

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

At least, I never got an indication of the GTX 660 being bad like the 9800 GT, IIRC.
IIRC, I personally discovered a GeForce 9800 GT failed just within weeks after purchase! That was back in 2009.

Re: Gigabyte GA-586DX Retro Goodness

OK, Halo 1x isn't that old, but it is considered old by many now, but IIRC, at least since the 2014 patch, 1.0.10, it apparently supports 1080p and higher.

I was like, good! Because Halo CE has a...

Re: HDD not start after board start - Why?

On a desktop, the HDDs probably will still spin, especially with CPU init failure, probably a bad LGA socket pin. (Just like how the LEDs still light up)

(A classic sign of CPU init failure, is,...

Re: Beer sign

I think they will be at least nearly 5KV! If not at or near 10KV!

Re: The hard drive failure thread

That one makes me suspect a shit HDD board or a shit component on the HDD board.

Re: The hard drive failure thread

In the current period, I have a feeling that I will see far more failed Seagate Momentus HDDs than Toshiba HDDs!

I likely had to condemn two Seagate Momentus HDDs already! (even when not sure if...

Amstrad GX4000 apparently a POS, especially for back then!

I just saw this YT video!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upBEinpk51I

Starting at or around 8:53 in the video, it looks like the cheapo PSU overvolts wildly with zero load!

Who would expect...

Re: Sony KD60X690E No Video

This looks possibly worse than pre-Hisense-Sharp, IIRC! Yikes! I see what looks like shit COF!

Re: PNY Geforce Ti4200

Cool! At least there shouldn't be any bad caps on there now!

The GeForce 4 Ti 4200, the ones where the 64 MB VRAM versions have better clocking VRAM than the 128 MB VRAM versions, IIRC!

Re: The hard drive failure thread

Seems to act much like one of those Maxtor "slimeline" HDD models! Those Maxtors, (looking at you 6E030L0!) have a known issue where the firmware epically fails to remap sectors.

I think this is the same model of Sony TV that my sister rented back in September, 2018, before having it returned, because it reportedly failed to respond to power button:

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I know that well, but what makes me ponder, is I suspect some BIOSes giving a different bleep code for the same thing, even with the same BIOS make and just a different board make or model, even when...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Oh OK, I had that feeling that the motherboard maker changed the bleep codes. But I only noticed that for OEM systems. I also saw documentation report repeated rapid short bleeps for a power error,...

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

That's interesting, because for me, 2-short means I need to reseat my RAM (socket 775, Asus Maximus II Gene)

But, I got reports from folks here of 2-short for video, IIRC, despite the...

Re: Need Catalyst 15.6 for Win 7 x86-64

Yikes! Looks like one of those CPUs that possibly get killed by 10 and 11 year old Intel Core CPUs easily! Possibly even by an OC'ed Core 2 Duo E4500!

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

There's a good chance that the GeForce 7600GS has FZ caps! :barf:

Same with the GeForce 7500, too!

If I read your second sentence correctly, it reminds me of what Leadman did.

Re: Hisense LTDN55K321 Purple backlight?

I'm used to HPS going from white to a vivid pink and I suspect that's normal for some HPS light bulb manufacturers and for some, it means a faulty HPS bulb or ballast, LOL.

Re: the gutless, bloated, and fried power supply hall of shame

IMHO, that looks very 2000s to me. Looks like a typical early-2000s' shit PSU.

Re: the gutless, bloated, and fried power supply hall of shame

I saw the "SWCON" primary caps, then I saw what looks like possibly rebadged JEE caps on the secondary, IIRC.
