Give us the rest of your system hardware including make and model of your motherboard, amount of RAM installed, harddrive and video card. Sometime i turn off and on then the fan will work also.

Cheap Video Card replace/Processor replace/RAM replace

and that is CHEAP but has the power to play games in 2004-2008 range, or maybe. Any upgrades to the CPU are slight. and this is the specs

My Laptop Spec: HP Pavillion ze5700 (UPGRADED)

OS: Windows XP SP3 32-bit. Record gameplays with DXtory?

Okay, so i was planning to upgrade my laptop once more. You can't upgrade the video card. It should say in the manual, which I can't find as well.

I can not find any information on it, on what the RAM speed and limit is. Processor: Intel Celeron 2.8ghz (Which in DXDIAG states: Equivalent to M-PIV 1.4ghz)
RAM: 705mb
Video Card: ATi RADEON IGP 354m

Is there any Video Card, Processor, and RAM Slot that is Available?

Replace the power jack or replace the adapter?

Why the sudden refusal to boot? Input?

AND/OR inside the case the the jack is soldered directly to the motherboard. How likely is it that it's the power jack which is broken? Of course, if it's the AC adapter that's broken, that would cost even more!

A few weeks ago, it got dropped right on its corner with the power plug still in it; the little metal plug of the AC adapter is now slightly crooked, and the power jack has a little chip off the plastic part of it. Put the whole thing back together, taking care to check that plugs were snug---still no power. I took the whole thing apart---minus the little chip, the power jack looks totally fine and cosmetically sound. Is also possible that
1) It's already cracked
2) If not yet, it's gonna crack

So look to see what connection looks like between power jack and motherboard, If you feel u wanna/can re-solder yourself or the typically price to redo the whole power thing seems to run $125 parts/labor/warranty if you take it somewhere.

And why did it take this long to crap out, if it IS broken? Its battery has been shot for a while (can't hold a charge), and I've been using it with the battery out. A new one of those silly jacks costs over $20 on eBay, so I want to make sure that it's the jack before I just up and buy one.

So how much is it all worth to you?

Stuck in the crappy battery; booted just fine (a...

How can I 'Copy and Replace' not 'Move and Replace'.

It looks like there should be a simple answer

Can anyone help? I swear I didnt change anything. I would simply open the folder on the USB pick up the file on the desktop with the left mouse and drag it to the USB folder.

For some reason W7 has decided to change 'Copy and Replace' with 'Move and Replace' when picking a file up with the left mouse and dragging it to another folder where an old version of the file exists.

There will be a list option after you drop,

I know I can 'Copy and Replace' by holding down the Ctrl key but I dont want to. Then I would get the message 'Copy and Replace'.. My Excel SS is in two places: My desktop and USB which I use for backup.

But not anymore it's become 'Move and Replace'.

Find & Replace (but Replace in a different Column)

But actually getting that data back to the table, if that is what you want, is a bit trickier.

The Board of Directors wants to move away from using the term "Grandfathered", which is distinguished by the acronym "GF" in the database column that shows conformity (labeled IAW). I could run the 'Find & Replace' function...find all the GF's...& replace them with a Y~...but that ~ symbol would go right back in the very same column that the GF came out of.

Now...I have already created a Query that has located all the GF entries in their various columns of various records...which our Board wants me to use in an internal "in-office" database (in order to keep track of what attributes actually were grandfathered a reference for our field inspector when he inspects the townhomes). I know it sounds complicated...but can it be done? We use this database to generate annual architectural reports for our 10,000 residents. there a way to find all the GF's in one column; & replace them w/ a Y in that same column...but have a symbol "~" appear in another column of the same record?

But we also want to create an unassuming symbol on the report...perhaps an ~ or a *...something that will alert the inspector to an attribute that once was grandfathered, on his field report. [This is to be done so that he will not
be flying blind when he comes across a non-conforming attribute...

Need a robust text find and replace utility - Like Ecobyte Replace Text 2.2 but not

Is there any multi file utility that allows you to search for part of a text line but replace the entire text line?

msiexec.exe /quiet /norestart /i \\dfs\dfsshare\SAV\Symant~1.msi
msiexec.exe /quiet /norestart /i <qt/>\\server\share\WIN32\Symantec Client Security.msi<qt/>
msiexec.exe /quiet /norestart /i \\server\share\SAV\WIN32\Symantec Client Security.msi
msiexec.exe /quiet /norestart /i <qt/>\\dfs\dfsshare\SAV\Symantec Client Security.msi<qt/>

and so on down the line. What I want to do is have a search based on PART of the line so I can then put in Symant~1.msi and Symantec Client Security.msi and replace the ENTIRE line with a new line.

We have a TON of text based INI files for our companies software deployment scripts.

We also have a TON of people who use different ways to deploy the same software. On one server alone we can have a bunch of different ways people install E.G. I LIKE the abilities of Ecobyte Replace Text 2.2 but the problem is I have to type in the whole line as it is in the file to then replace it with the new one for the new deployment.

To replace or not to replace.. that is the question.

One of them might be bad. That sometimes helps. However after taking the PSU to a technician they said it was working fine.

Ok now its been a while since my pc has not been working.

I thought maybe it was a PSU problem as the PSU would have very subtle flickering sounds, almost like sparking cables. This cost me 50 AUD! All fans run, and from what i remember hard drives would start spinning too. There are odd noises from the PSU.

You can use Memtest86 to try them out. What could it be about the motherboard that would also make the PSU make that noise? One day i turned it on and it would get to the Bios splash page but it would not go any further.

Ive had it for just over a year now. Here is my setup:

ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon64 4000+
PC-3200 (2x1gb) CAS2 Corsair DDR mem
Radeon X800 GTO (Iceturbo 2)
Thermaltake 680w power supply
Maxtor 300gb Maxline III
WD Raptor 36GB
Creative Audigy 2 ZS

I have not had the guts to take anything out and test them individually. What he then told me was that it may be the mobo. The pc turns on, doesnt boot past the BIOS splash screen and just stays there.

Test the RAM sticks individually. Also, try them in different memory slots. But before i go and send it to a proper technician and fork out X amount of money id like to get your opinion. But has anyone had or heard of this problem before?

Regards :wave:

BTW, Great thread title

Need to replace the dvd drive in my H330, what kind of drive should replace it with

My trusty pc runs great but my optical drive is starting to struggle reading and writing,  i gather it's easy enough to replace the drive but cant find anything about the drive online.

How to replace key?

I twiddled and twiddled and finally managed to replace the key. The key is loose. There's a little white frame think and a black rectangular frame.

AE430 or 530 maybe. But this isn't working. I can't work out how they're meant to relate to each other so the key is held on properly. Anyone know what to do? So I lifted off the key, cleaned under it and tried to replace.

Thinkpad Edge - can't remember which model. I'm having trouble getting a key to click back into place properly. There was an odd bit of debris or hair got caught under the C key so it wasn't working properly. In case someone else has the same problem and comes across this thread, what I think I did was: Hinge the white frame into the top hinges on the keyboard.Hinge the black rectangular frame into the bottom hinges on the key.Slot the white frame through the black frame.Put the key in place and press down a few times until it finally seems to click into place. I think that's what did it in the end. With  every other laptop I've had, the little frame thing under the key just sits in place, I press down firmly on the key and it latches on and works fine.

Though having tried various different ways round, I'm not entirely sure that was the winning technique!

Replace 16 GB m.2 with a 256 GB, or keep it and add the 256 GB

My T450s has the 16 GB m.2, and another currently empty m.2 slot. I bought a 256 GB 42mm m.2. Should I leave the 16 GB in its slot and add the 256 GB to the other slot, or, remove the 16 GB and put the 256 GB in its place, leaving the currently emty slot still empty? I know the 16 GB is a cache for the 500 GB HDD that is currently in, and that's good. I'm wondering, what's best practice.

At that point, the 16 GB m.2 seems unnecessary, and maybe could be repurposed as a RAM disk (uninstalling the cache software that's currently using it) So unless someone tells me it'd be best to do something different... But, I'm also shopping for a 512 GB SSD to replace that with. I think that's I want to do is as mentioned, replace the HDD with a SSD, and replace the 16 with the 256.

Can I use the same OS if I replace my MB and CPU?

That is what me and a few other techs at an old shop used to do.
Please help me know the right thing to do. Do I risk major problems? Just wondering if it is possible [and smart] to change out my motherboard and CPU and still use the same installed Windows Vista Ultimate?

Most here will say you can't, but in my experience, remove drivers, install new equipment, do windows repair if it bluescreens, then install new drivers. Will it work?

Replace HD with SSD

Does HP provide a adapter so a 2.5 inch SSD will fit in a mechanical HD slot or can you recommend a part available from another provider?

Replace a FAN

Replace this Fan?

It was so loud that I just unplugged it....

Ont he Northbridge of my Gigabyte board, the little fan decided to start sinigng. What kind of fan do I need to replace this thing? Now its time to replace it.

You should be able to buy them locally. Steelers going to Super Bowl!
There may be an oil hole on top(under sticker, perhaps).

Its probably a 50/55mm fan. Measure the fan, or take it to the store with you.
*It may just need oil! If so, add two drops of oil........

Replace R5 GPU??

Do i need to replace the fan????

probably a stupid question....but could be something totally different...

Which fan? If its the power supply fan, its essential. If you cook the power supply, the HP only replacements are very expensive, and standard ones usually do not fit.

Replace SSD

I have Windows 64 Bit installed on an SSD Drive. It`s that easy. I am running out of Disk space. Go into control panel>backup and restore and save a disk image to your internal hard drive or an external hard drive.
