  1. I did think about capacitors actually. That could be the problem but when I look at the motherboard I see lots of different types which makes me believe that some could of been replaced at some point. Though Ill have a look over it fully to make sure none of them are bulging/leaking. Thank you though. It could be worth a shot to replace them.
  2. Before I start this is an old 754 system that I was building from old parts. So this is a bit of a new area for me to play around with. The system is the following: Winfast 760GXK8MC Micro ATX motherboard AMD Sempron 2600+ 1 x TwinMOS 256 MBs PC2100 RAM ATI x1550 AGP GPU Some unknown brand Soundcard (Chipset says "E3DX" it looks like) Thermal Master 420 Watt PSU So it started a few days ago when I plugged in a WD 500 GB Sata HDD to install Windows XP on through the system. Just testing to see if everything works. Before hand I had run Tiny Core Linux and it seemed that every
  3. Alright. Thank you for the help. I guess ill have to have a good look around for a new CPU then for it lol.
  4. I am considering it to. Since I did have an old Dell PC with a CPU removed boot and the fans blasted at full speed. But ive had a friend tell me it could be bad power rails on the PSU (The PSU itself is about 6 years old now).
  5. Ive got an older AM3 system that has for some reason just stopped booting entirely today (No video and fans at full blast). I had no issues with it a few days ago and have done no hardware or software modifications of any kind for as long as I can remember. The system is as follows: AMD FX 6300 (No overclocks or anything) 8 GBS of DDR3 HyperX ram (No overclocks either) Asus GTX 960 2GB Kingston 120 GB SSD AM3 MSI 970 Gaming Motherboard Thermaltake 500 Watt PSU (Came with case when brought from store) (If i missed anything just ask) I have tried the following - Re-seat
  6. Hi, I'm looking for an easy way to reroute game traffic to bypass some school servers. To make this easier I have 3 computers that i'm going to name. Computer inside the school network = "Client" Computer outside the school network = "Node" Computer outside the school network that's blocked = "Host" For more detail here is the can and cants "Client" network I have no control over. "Client" computer is my own computer, So I can install software. Computer is Windows. "Node" network I do have control of but I cant port-forward because of an old router (H
  7. It had faults with the original camera system it was going into. So im 100% sure its a drive problem. I checked the same system with 2 other drives and it was fine with them. And the drive itself was having problems with the original system it was supposed to go into.
  8. So ive just recently learnt that my 4TB WD Purple drive will clear all security footage from itself when the system turns off. And when the system boots it says the drive is not formatted? What could be causing it? When the drive becomes formatted it will write to it normally, I can also go back and view the footage. But if the drive losses power it clears itself and I cant get any footage.

  10. Cant seem to find the BIOS/UEFI on the mac. Thank you! Ive already reinstalled everything but I will keep this in mind for the future. Also figured out to that in GRUB i could press C to go to shell and mount + boot off the USB.
  11. True windows xp is quite old and the security wouldn't be the best now that I think about it.
  12. Lucky guy, Even though im 15 I have an OBSESSION with older desktop computers. I like the retro style of them. You could say I was born in the wrong time period haha
  13. Hi, I currently have an old Mac mini 2007. Its running Ubuntu at the moment and i'm trying to completely install a new Linux distro (Lubuntu because its "light weight"). Reasons of doing this? Ubuntu is great and all but its really bad on this machine, The machine is a 1 core with 2gb ram and Ubuntu is not happy with it. I was hoping a copy of Lubuntu would make it somewhat capable for web browsing. Wheres the old Mac OS install? I have no idea at all... The problems I'm having right now is how the hell do I install the new distro. Macs system for choosing a hard disks doesn't show
