  • Hi po,

    I got some problem w/ my hard disk (internal) due to water spilling. Di sya naoff kagad ng kapatid ko. Ngayon, ayaw ng gumana ng hard disk even when plugged in via enclosure (no clicks, no vibrating, no power). The laptop was sitll ok after a few days na pinatuyo and we are using a new hdd for it. Problem is may mga super important files on the last HDD....

    Is there anything I can do w/ this (especially walang budget sa pagbackup because it\'s around 10k)? :( Thanks in advance sa reply!
  • ^ I\'m afraid there\'s nothing you can do about it.
  • Hi

    I need help with my Razer blackwidow keyboard, the rest of the keys are working except for the pipe symbol and numbers 1 to 4.
    Any idea how to get them fixed or someone who knows how to get it fixed.
    Help would be appreciated.

    TIA
  • ^ You need someone with electronics experience, as well as an idea of how keyboards work.
    Having a digital multimeter (DMM) is also a big help.

    First is to check if the affected keyswitches are still working. Set the DMM in continuity mode, poke the legs of one of the affected keyswitch and press the key. The DMM should either beep, or resistance should read zero.

    If all the switches are working, then the issue is probably in the circuit board.

    Second is to follow the circuit traces on the affected keys. The objective is to look for any sign of physical damage or breaks in the circuit traces.

  • Hello po,

    Maayos pa po kaya tong 7850 ko? Ang problem is walang display kapag DVI monitor gamit, pero pag HDMI meron kaso may vertical bars sa boot up tapos ayaw na tumuloy after loading ng OS. Tinry ko safe mode, ok naman siya pero nandun padin yung vertical bars. Tinry ko uninstall yung driver, nagrun naman kaso nandun padin yung vertical bars. And pag reinstall driver ayaw ulit tumuloy sa OS. May pagasa pa po ba to?

    Kung may kilala kayo na tech na kaya gumawa along Parañaque pwede mahingi contact. hehe Thank you!

  • Good day mga sirs. May binigay sakin na CPU ang tita ko, nung tinest ko nagpower-on naman siya kaso no POST, no display sa onboard tsaka sa gpu. Walang beep sound. Nitry ko PSU na gamit ko kaso wala pa rin. Ano po kaya problema? Yung processor or yung motherboard. Na-try ko na din reset BIOS, tanggalin CMOS battery.

    Proc: Intel i5 3340
    Mobo: Asus B75M-A

    Thanks in advance!

  • I'm among some that fix bent/broken pins here in SEA but its not cheap, seriously if its a non-high-end board and your not willing to shell out cash at the cost of a medium and above range board don't bother having it repaired the proper way. Though there are ways to do a pseudo fix but its labor intensive, also there may be conditionals on its guarantee and still it'll be a bit pricey.

    FYI: Also AMD GPU's are repairable but at a cost that isn't viable its better to save and buy a new one or working used one, Just an to give you a range of cost to those who dream of repairing AMD boards correctly, smd, consumables and thermals cost is rather expensive that's including importation. Compared to socket repair on motherboards which is already costly. The cost for the real way of repairing AMD are nearly twice of that and Nvidia GPU cards is around half of that. The reflow thing is a pseudo way but its not a proper way.

    Else your best bet is check if still under local, region warranty (not store) then have it returned (just pay the under the table fee).

    For PSU repair ask kuya nel_on98 he's the most decent PSU repair guy I have met in Metro Manila.

    You can PM me either here, badcaps.net or overclock.net for some details.
  • Wah, ba't kaya bigla nagkaground itong case ko. Na-off na yung CPU pero may ground yung case, nawawala lang kapag tinanggal yung power cable from power strip. Tinry ko i-rekta sa AVR yung power cable wala ng ground. May sira yung power strip ko? All other devices connected to the power strip eh ok naman like, speakers, monitor, mobile phone (Charging), printerat walang ground.
  • mga sir ayaw na mag power on ng OCZ 500w modular psu ko... saan pwede mag pa repair? Ung highly recommended na repair specialist nyo sir salamat in advance
  • Meron po bang pwede ilagay na capacitor or kung ano po ba dapat para mapabilis yun mga cpu fan na 12 volts, thanks.
  • @Plottermedia
    It doesn't work that way. Either get a more powerful fan, or adjust the fan speed settings, either in the BIOS or the setup program provided by the motherboard manufacturer.
  • Hi guys! Hope you could help me with my problem.

    Ung PC ko kasi with specs below, ng nilinis ko ung fan ng processor di ko na siya maibalik sa mobo kaya ayun nasira ung clips niya. Nilinis ko kasi siya due to freezing and slow boot of windows 10. Di ko alam kung pasira na ung PSU ko or motherboard or 2 ram ko or processor.

    Pag on ko sa kanya start lang siya sandali tapos namamatay. Di ko kaya ito dahilan sa di ko na naibalik ng mabuti ung fan niya dun sa processor na nakadikit sa mobo niya? Or saan ko ba realiable pwede dalin ung PC ko sa gilmore or kahit QC area. Do you suggest palitan ko na ung isa sa mga nabanggit kung specs below? Wala pa akong budget pambili pero kung meron na ano ung pinaka mura na mobo for high end games and anong brand?

    My PC Specs:
    Intel i5 3470
    Mobo Gigabyte H61M-DS2 R3
    520 W StrikeX PSU
    8gb ram
    Aerocool Mid Casing
    Palit Gtx 970
    2 units of 1TB hard disk

    Meron ba akong pwedeng tawagan sa inyo na hingi lang ng advice sa problem na encounter. Sayang ung PC di ko malaro mga high end games ko (NBA 2k18, Shadow of War, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, Call of duty World War II

    Any help will be appreciated. Sana matulungan niyo ako. Ayoko kasi magpunta lang sa gilmore tapos sabihin palitan na lahat except Video Card ko. Thanks
  • Guys, can you help me out? baka may marefer kayo na dell xps laptop technician. dami ko na kasi ginawang troubleshooting pero ayaw parin maayos.

    Dell XPS 13 9350
    Issue: Black / Blank screen after Dell Logo.
    While logo is being shown, nagfflicker ang screen, pero kahit na anong angle nung screen hindi naman nawawala so i think the screen is ok kasi na check ko na rin yung screen test sa dell. Function + f8.

    Baka motherboard na ang sira?

    Please help me out. need to repair my laptop asap.

    Thank you.
  • ^ not a technician but if the Dell logo appears it means the system is working, including the mobo... if nothing appears after the logo, test the hard drive first to check if you are able access the partitions there.

    If you are able to get to the DELL bios without issues, try to make yourself a usb based windows installer (windows iso then burn to a flash drive using rufus) to test if the system is working the way it was supposed to.... If the Windows installer boots up normally but cannot read the hard drive or its partitions, the hard drive or the system responsible for reading of data from the hard drive might need to be looked at.

    Worked as Dell XPS tech support for 6 months...
  • Hi guys nabasa ng sprite ung laptop ko at walang display pero may ilaw ung on button nya. Mga magkano ba ang estimated pagawa?
  • @Emdonna123
    At least 2k for board-level repair. Probably more depending on the damage.
