  1. Im thinking the same... its worth like 30$ anyway as its so old. Im thinking its the Chipset / Storage controller etc.
  2. It already has windows on, it boots on another machine fine, shows up when plugged in as an external drive also to my XPS, can browse and access the files.
  3. Its as upto date as can be. the machine is Old, i have advised my customer to upgrade anyway, its an Intel Pentium, 3GB Ram, Windows 7, he'd rather it be fixed, but im lost as to what can be stopping it booting.
  4. Apolagies, the system shows the option as HDD but the drive is indeed an SSD, basically, it will not boot to SATA at all, or USB at all.
  5. Hello, Trying to fix a clients laptop. Will not boot to HDD, just gets to a blank screen, does not get to the windows logo at all simply POSTs, displays BIOS then goes to a blank screen, USB Stick with Windows on has the same activity, have changed RAM & tried diffrent slots. it is an old laptop so potetnialy something is dead? HDD is definitely fine as its a WD Blue SSD and only 1 year old, it also boots in another machine fine. Any ideas?
  6. Sure, its not going to halm anything, you may find you need to up the voltage which is when you will see a increase in temps
  7. its good practice to reimage after installing a new mobo as the chipset drivers will be diffrent, but just remove the old ones and install the new ones and you should be good
  8. if you havent changed the voltage then you arent applying any more power, thats what heats the CPU up. your all good, youve netted yourselfsome free Mhz at no cost...
  9. You can source replacement keycaps on ebay, quite cheap too.
  10. Iv built a few PCs on carpet because i had no other chouse and never caused any damage once. im not dismissing the issue, if your grounding youself like you say and its tiled anyway id say your good
  11. I woudnt say so... youll have a great experience either way
  12. Youll be fine mate! its easier than it looks, and with no RGB cables to worry about youll have fun! just have fun and enjoy the experience. dont drop that Cpu now!
