    Re: I may have wounded my Motherboard

    No reference at all, just full refund approved.
    I hadn't actually asked for a refund.
    For the reason for return, I had ticked faulty item.

    Re: I may have wounded my Motherboard

    I'll relate as I remember it, bearing in mind it was three weeks ago.
    The radio was powered up & the USB cable connected to it.
    When I connected the other end to the PC, it instantly started a...

    Re: I may have wounded my Motherboard

    So it would be purely by coincidence all those systems fell over at the exact time I connected the radio to it.

    Re: I may have wounded my Motherboard

    Still waiting for a result on this.
    PBTech have received the radio but haven't processed the claim yet.

    I am curious about the damage to my PC's motherboard or CPU.
    Would any of you...

    Re: I may have wounded my Motherboard

    But wait there is more.

    The radio needed to be updated to be compatible with the current software, so I used an older laptop as a ginny pig to do the update.
    Got through that ok but when I...

    So connected the radio to the remaining usb ports.
    Not an issue at all.

    I have swapped over the motherboard & CPU & all is well again....

    Re: I may have wounded my Motherboard

    Just an update on this saga.

    PBTech suggested I bring the PC & radio to one of their branches & they would look into it.
    As the nearest is 440k's from my location & with the current price of gas,...

    Yep that is another option that I am looking into.
    Looks like I'll have to return this radio.
    Juist waiting to hear back from PBTech

    Well that didn't help, no network on Linux either.
    Couldn't get the wifi card to work on Win11, too old.
    Now looking at used motherboards on trademe.
    If anyone has one needing a new home.

    Yes 2 items:

    Storage volume shadow copies
    Storage volumes

    I am thinking they may be related to my Quick Swap Hard Drive Cady.

    Nothing obviously fried.
    Pulled all USB cables except mouse, keyboard is ps2
    I got the other monitor going by using...

    I may have wounded my Motherboard

    I have several radios that I program via PC.
    I received a new one today & proceeded to set it up along side the others.
    When I connected it via USB to my PC, the PC did a instant reboot & came back...

    Re: Online Purchase from UK

    Yes a bit too open ended for my liking.
    I wouldn't know the total cost until after the initial purchase.

    Online Purchase from UK

    I'm looking at buying a radio online from the UK.
    It will be in access of the $1000 limit, so will likely have to pay duty.
    Any tips or advice from anyone who has done this ?

    Re: Support for long graphic card

    Depends what it's going to be used for.
    If it's for gaming, that card will soon heat up the inside of the case.
    First casualty is usually the PSU getting too hot.

    Re: Support for long graphic card

    As wainuitech said for support.
    It's the budget ones with thiner circuit boards and open fans that tend to twist.
    Good quality ones are fine.

    Re: Support for long graphic card

    I've used long cards in the past.
    They will sag or twist if you don't create some sort of support.
    A bigger problem is they won't fit in most modern cases without surgery.
    My last two gamming...
