Motherboard and Warranty

January 29th, 2015 · Comments Off

Most of the trouble caused by a damaged motherboard is as similar as to problems caused by an out of order or failing power supply. So be certain to verify if the power supply is not working or switch out another power supply to test if your problem is fixed. If it happens that you have an extra motherboard you’ll be able to solve the problem by swapping it, if that is the situation then the motherboard is most likely defective.

If the motherboard is defective check for warranty then if it is under warranty you can send it back to the manufacturer. It can be replaced by a new one. At times manufacturer might even shell out for the shipping & handling. Make it to a point that while you open a motherboard you hold all of the packaging, user’s manual, do not rip the sticker and the box itself so claiming of warranty is easy.

Intel G45 Chipset Desktop Motherboard

I recently bought this at a local distributor. I decide to get this so i can use it for my Home Theater PC or HTPC which is low powered. I prefered this cheap and CPU which requires a minimal power consumption. It was important for the video to perform the hardware decoding of Hi Def contents as with Blu Ray and HD DVD. I did not even choose an onboard video card because it will definitely consume too much power. And so far, this ingenius piece of miracle has met all the requirements. I am using an Intel Core2Duo E7200 CPU, with 2GB of RAM and Windows Vista Ultimate operating system. I can play Blu Ray movies without glitches. While using Total Media Theatre or TMT. Amazingly, the CPU is consuming just about 20% of resources. The only problem i encountered with the product is, it is unstable when in sleep and standby mode. The unit sometimes does not engage into sleep mode even if it’s idle for quite some time. But sometime it does work. I have reported this proble with the company Intel but unfortunately, they havent responded with regards to the problem. Maybe they could come up with a fix more likely a BIOS update.

Understanding Motherboard

January 8th, 2015 · Comments Off


Image source: www.geekmungus.co.uk
A motherboard is the central or main circuit board making up a multifaceted electronic system, such as a modern computer. It is also recognized as a mainboard, baseboard, system board, or, on Apple computers, a logic board, and is from time to time abbreviated as mobo.[1]
Most after-market motherboards formed today are designed for so-called IBM-compatible computers, which hold over 96% of the personal computer market today.[2] Motherboards for IBM-compatible computers are specifically enclosed in the PC motherboard article.
The basic purpose of the motherboard, like a backplane, is to supply the electrical and logical connections by which the other components of the system communicate.
A archetypal desktop computer is built with the microprocessor, main memory, and other essential components on the motherboard. Other components such as external storage, controllers for video display and sound, and peripheral devices are typically attached to the motherboard via edge connectors and cables, although in modern computers it is increasingly common to integrate these “peripherals” into the motherboard.

Things you must do before changing your motherboard. (part I)

December 24th, 2014 · Comments Off

Changing a motherboard is very far from changing your everyday clothing. It’s much more complicated than that since you have a lot of things to consider before doing it. Here are some of the few things to do prior to changing your computer’s brain:

1. Backup all your data. When doing this, you must keep in mind to back-up everything and not just the data found in your My Documents. You might want to sift through your files once again (all of the files found in your hard drive) and backup the important ones (such as saved passwords, ISP settings, and saved games). There are programs online that might help you in your systems copying task.
2. Gather all your personal data files. Aside from backing up your documents and pictures, you must also copy all the licenses you’ve had acquired over the internet. In today’s age, we normally buy software and other gaming programs online. If you do not want to go through the hassle of contacting all your software vendors for serial code recovery, you might as well do this.

Best Motherboard Brands

December 17th, 2014 · No Comments

 

There are many different motherboard manufacturers but not all of these have impressive products. Based on different reviews by experts and users, the two most trusted motherboard brands are ASUS and GIGABYTE. These two companies have been making motherboard for years now and have only been providing good and reliable products.

Based on performance, functionality, user friendliness, and warranty, these two brands are up there. Most customer reviews state that they’ve never had a problem with the brand and it’s reasonably priced. Gigabyte includes a lot of connectors for every kind of monitor, it is still pretty easy to use and it is almost always more affordable than any of its competitors. Asus leads with the user friendly parts and customer service care. It is the safest choice when you find yourself shopping for a motherboard.

Other notable motherboard manufacturers are MSI (Micro star international) and Diamond Flower Inc, both are Chinese based brands.

Things you must do before changing your motherboard. (part III)

December 10th, 2014 · Comments Off

5. Disconnect all the wires. Of course, before doing anything else and before you start unscrewing all the parts, make sure that everything is disconnected. The least you would want is for the other parts to be damaged. The power supply is very easy to spot since the connecters are big, however, the small connectors such as the power switch or the USB connectors on the front of the CPU are barely seen.
6. Remove all the hardware. Aside from the connectors, you must also remove the hardware installed on your old motherboard. There are cases wherein hardware devices obstruct the motherboard when you try to take it out. Do not force it. Removing everything inside your CPU prior to installation is a much better idea.
