    Motherboard problems? 10th Jul 18 at 6:52 PM
    I have a self built desktop, that is well used but old. It is now at the stage where either-

    1. The power source works but the screen flashes "no imput signal" on and off as the tower peeps as it keeps trying.

    2. It starts to load, but only gets as far as "Memory Runs at Single Channel" or stops just before that; and then it freezes.

    3. It works.

    Is this a motherboard problem? Can it be sorted? Or is it time to build another PC?
    RENTING? Have you checked to see that your landlord has permission from their mortgage lender to rent the property? If not, you could be thrown out with very little notice.
    Read the sticky on the House Buying, Renting & Selling board.

    If your PC is faulty, before you buy any parts please remember you can on ebay get an old Dell 7010 which probably will have 4gb memory and 50% more cpu speed for less than 100

    I have that battery. Can I just put a new battery in? Without checking all that?

    Put the new battery in regardless, but you'll need to check the BIOS settings afterwards, change them as appropriate, then save them and reboot.
