    Re: Desktop PC on the blink

    I hope this is the last chapter in this saga, but there could be a happy ending.

    I seem to have fixed the problem. I know exactly what I did to fix it, but I have no idea why or how it worked, or...

    Re: Desktop PC on the blink

    My cries of triumph were a bit premature. As I am sure everyone on this forum knows, the worst kind of problem in a complex system is the intermittent fault. Just about anything you do "fixes" it -...

    Re: Desktop PC on the blink

    You are right. Replacing a 5-year old battery is simple, sensible and cheap. It's one of those things that are very easy to forget.

    Re: Desktop PC on the blink

    I agree with all you say, but I have made some progress. I decided this morning to disconnect everything not essential and try running bare-bones. I started with a RAM module and got it first time!...

    Re: Desktop PC on the blink

    I tried your suggestion about the switch (great fun poking around a live motherboard with a metal screwdriver!). The board fired up as before and just sat there with the fans spinning but no boot-up....

    Desktop PC on the blink

    This morning my PC failed to start.
    Symptoms: Pressing power switch resulted in power LED coming on, fans starting, disk access LED flashed, then sound of a relay clicking every couple of seconds...

    Re: What's your background image?

    Last year we stayed a couple of nights at Mt. Cook Hermitage and this is what we saw when we went into our room. I grabbed a shot from the balcony so I have a permanent record on the screen.

    Re: One for the Mathematicians among us.

    The figures would appear to show that Muslims are smarter than Europeans and so deserve to succeed.
  9. Re: Looking for a replacement 1155 motherboard for an i5 3470

    Glad it all worked out well.
    Like many others, I've had a lot of value from this forum over the years, so it's nice to be able to give something back (and clear some space in that cupboard).
  10. Re: Looking for a replacement 1155 motherboard for an i5 3470

    OK, see how you get on.
    I'll put the B75 back in the cupboard for now.
  11. Re: Looking for a replacement 1155 motherboard for an i5 3470

    Where abouts are you? I have a Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H with a i5-3470 mounted, sitting in a cupboard where it's been for nearly 5 years. I replaced it with a H97-HD3 Socket 1150 and I don't see myself...

    Good grief! I had completely missed that one. At last a useable clipboard!

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    If all this is keeping you awake at night, read Adam Becker's 'What is Real?' (https://www.hodder.co.uk/books/detail.page?isbn=9781473661356)

  15. Re: The Moon Doesn't Exist Unless You're Looking....

    Interesting video, but this stuff isn't new. It was 1935 when Einstein pointed out what he regarded as an obviously absurd consequence of quantum mechanics, with its "spooky action at a distance". In...

    Re: I love red meat

    The best way to get a balanced diet is to eat vegetarians. Meat & veg in the one package.
