well iv managed to fix the sound problem iv been having on my main system. i belive it must have been a bad connection on the PCI expansion slot. perhaps dust or a bad earth (dry joint) on that slot.
i changed the slot on which it was pluged in to. simple really, dont know y i didnt think of it earlier. but neway.
i still have a problem with me laptop which im struggling to fix. so please, have a look at my old topic up there and if ne of u guys have any suggestions for me to try, please let me know.
I have this old laptop that crashes. HP nc6000.
from cold boot it will run for 5 or 10 min then freeze after which it will not boot. it turns on, lights flicker and then it turns off.
this only seems to happen in windows. it will sit there all day long in the bios. i thinks its a hardware prob, iv tried re seating ram and changing the slot. i was gona reseat the chip next and try blowing it through to get rid of all the dust n stuff in there. its a bit grubby in there which is making me think its a bad connection somewhere. although some said to me that the solder in the chip socket needs re flowing which is a bit beyond my abilities as i don't have all the equip for that. im not to sure that is the case tho.
what do u guys think.
many thanks steve.
