Howdy folks, I haven't been here in a long time. I came in because of a school assignment I'm working on, I need a couple of sites that I feel exhibit exemplary design features. Naturally, I remembered UNFLUX's work and wanted to use a couple of the UNFLUX designs as references. UNFLUX, I hope you d...

Lately I've gotten a couple machines that both have the same issue. No video whatsoever. Both are relatively old micro atx (probably three to five years, celeron). One, an HP and the other a Compaq. Neither will boot with any video signal at all. I've checked power supplies, connections, reseated ra...

solved problem myself. Thanks!

Thanks, actually I had just finished reading that page and bookmarking it. Usually I'd have no problem setting up a new router, it's just this one program they use to do their dispatching etc... If I replace the new router with the old one....problem gone so I know its something this new box is bloc...

Okay here's the problem: I've installed a new Netgear FVS318v3 wired business router for a client who had a Linksys residential router in place. The reason for doing this is because they wanted to have some control (keyword and url blocking) to slow down some of the unauthorized internet use. They a...

Look up their warranty service centers and call one of them. Explain the problem and maybe you'll get someone helpful who will look up the code for you. (Maybe).

The flashing sequence is binary which is telling you a fault code. The problem is having the info to decipher it. You'll need a repair manual which the warranty service people have access to.

Are you sure you don't have a jumper in the wrong place on the drive that won't show full size? Some of them come with an extra jumper setting to limit drive size to 32 gig or so to accomodate older systems. If you're running an NTFS drive with Windows XP on it and stick in any other drive as a slav...

Everything seems decent to me for a budget machine. Get the highest wattage power supply you can afford. Newegg rocks even when their shipping costs for a single item seems ridiculous at times. As far as Samsung hard drives, I have them installed all over the place and have had nothing but success w...

IRQ less than 0 is definately a hardware failure happening. Try testing memory first, then hard drive then its pretty much going to be a motherboard issue in my experience.

I stopped using that paste crap a long time ago. It's nothing but a mess waiting to happen. Google for frag tape and buy that instead. Easy to put on and take off and can be left in place long term or removed when you need to.

There is a brand of circuit board cleaner called "Misty" that works fairly well. I am typing this on a Sony Vaio I brought back from the dead due to a coffee spill complete with cream and sugar. Be sure and take one component off at a time and bag your parts and screws as you go. Keep a record of ho...

I dont know whether to build a model airplane around it or set a 6 pack next to it.

Cool! Pun intended. Heat kills. I'm glad I don't have to pay your electric bill.

I'll stick by my guns when it comes to side panel fans in a well made case. I ran an Athlon XP box for two years that barely broke 100 F. no matter what. I could always immediately notice a 3 or 4 degree rise in temp simply by unplugging the side panel fan. Maintaining the temperature and humidity i...

Heat rises (we all know that already but apply it to computer cases). Most newer cases are going to have an inlet space at the bottom of the front cover to let air in. A good case is going to have a front fan mount about where your hard drive sits in its bay so having a fan there blowing towards the...

You'll end up replacing the motherboard if the charge socket broke off the circuit board IMHO. Most likely it took some of the board insulator material with it and you wont be able to solder a short-proof connection. Circuit boards are repairable, but a new m/b will probably cost much less.

If you are moving to a machine with the same or a similar motherboard and or chipset, you may be able to get away with it. If not you'll likely get all kinds of conflicts and XP may not even start.

You probably need to configure your outbound ports and inbound ports to allow kaaza to communicate with the servers. Im sure if you go to the linksys site and look up your model number, there will be step by step solutions on how to configure the router to allow communication with services such as k...

A good thing to look for in heatsink / fan combos for Socket A processors is find the ones with as much copper in them as you can afford. Copper is the best route for heat to dissipate through. Also, be very cautious in applying heatsink compounds. I have found a substance called "frag tape" that is...

Post Posted: April 13th, 2004, 6:40 pm

Hi twmspro. Ive pulled heat sinks off processors that have been in place for years and the paste is still there. AMD has some informational videos you can download, one of which discusses thermal pads vs. pastes. You can find them here:,,30_177_4...

Yep, youre right, ad-aware isnt the instant answer for everything. Im painfully aware of that.

Post Posted: April 11th, 2004, 4:52 pm

I posted this site elsewhere and it was well received, I hope you folks enjoy it too. Hilarious! You players can find out what your "pimp handle" is here: enjoy! :lol: Theres some adult language on this site, so visit at your own discretion. Thanks. John

With all those nasties in your registry, have you tried ad-aware6? Much easier and F-r-e-e! :D

Newegg rocks! Your links are good, I saw the photos just fine. Congrats! :) is a good place to look for fans, Ive used them often with no problems. make sure you get some good heatsink compound, and dont overuse it. There are tutorials on to show you how to p...
