PC Technician Lounge (Need help? We're here!)

  • Sir gusto ko lang makahingi ng tulong kung paano ba mawawala yung ground ng PC ko. Nakukuryente ako pag nagagawakan ko yung back panel tuwing may ginagalaw ako dun. Yung PSU ko ay Seasonic m12 na bronze. Walang AVR/UPS. Surge protector lang tapos yung power cord nandun yung ground (?) na plug. Tapos yung surge protector walang ground na plug pagkabit sa outlet. Ano kaya cause nito? May wire kaya na open na nakadikit sa case? Salamat po.
  • ^ install a proper grounding system in your house

    or

    the usual wear a rubber slipper that is dry will work magnificently

    or

    tumira ka sa bahay na wood made, or maybe a house that had a wood flooring.

    ----

    for me the best thing you can do is just install a proper grounding system, this will save you a lot from electrocution on your PC but also from other appliance as well like refrigerators, washing machine, oven, microwave etc..... in most cases refrigerators, washing machine, electric cooker, rice cooker etc... ang madalas kong marinig na nakukuryente sila pag hinahawakan nila, minsan hndi sila nakukuryente pero in general sinasabi nila nakukuryente sila kaya marami pa rin ako nakikitang gumagamit ng inefficient fire based cooker like LPG or Kerosene based cooker because of the fear of electrocution, so if your electrocuted, its probably you fault for not having the appliance properly grounded.

    just in case you dont know what the gounding is, tignan mo yung saksakan ng PC mo, 3 paa nyan diba, yung nagiisang bilog doon yan yung grounding kung pinutol mo yan or just used a getho adapter to plug it on a non-grounded plane socket, then well, expect electrocution for good. Worst case scenario, it may catch fire in case of power surge during lightning storm or irregularities on the power source it self which happen once in a while.

  • Mga boss question about avr sana may maka tulong. Meron akong avr 1000w relay type then nagkabit ako ng multimeter sa outlet sa likod niya para macheck ang output niya tapos ang lumalabas 225v-245v which is back and forth yung needle niya at click ng click ang tunog. Then meron ako isa pang multimeter kinabit ko mismo sa outlet kung saan nakakabit yung avr kasabay niya at ang nakukuha ko naman eh constant 220v-221v. May problema ba avr? Nakakatakot isaksak psu ko kasi ang nakalagay sa psu ko 180v-240v then yung avr pumapalo ng 245v and more.
  • Hello mga sir/ma'am,

    Good day po sa inyo. Need assistance sana sa issue ko. Bale, nung isang araw lang, napansin ko na everytime ino-on ko ung cpu ko, nag oOFF cia after 2 seconds na pag ka press ng ON button, then after 2-3 seconds, mag oON na ulit cia then continue sa pag boot. (On - Off - On). Hindi naman cia ganito dati. No power flactuation recently. Done basic T/S like removing the peripherals (HDD, GPU, RAM, cpu fans, led lights), para ma deduct lang kung san nanggagaling ung issue. Pero ganun parin cia. Pag nag reset naman ako ng cpu, di ko naman na eencounter ung on-off-on issue. Pag nag shutdown ako and hintay ng at least 5 minutes bago mag On ulit, tsaka ko ulit na eencounter ung on-off-on na issue. Not sure anymore kung ano nangyari dito. Nag update narin ako ng bios, baka sakali na un ang issue, pero same parin. Need your advise mga masters. Thanks po ng marami.

  • ^
    Copy the contents of the driver disc to a USB flash drive, or go to the manufacturer's web site, download the necessary drivers, then copy to USB flash drive.
  • guys kung uupdgrade ko laptop ng fan ko ano mgnda ? 3pin connector ung fan
  • ^
    Laptop fans usually don't have standard sizes (80mm, 120mm) like in desktops-- they are custom-ordered by the manufacturer to fit certain models, and are generally incompatible with everything else. For example, you can't fit a fan from a Thinkpad X61 into a Thinkpad X220, even if both are Thinkpads.

    Best case, you'll find one or two fans that are compatible with your laptop.

    Worst case, you won't find any and will have to MacGyver one from a different laptop model.
  • Magagamit ko parin po ba usb kahit wala pang drivers sa mobo? Ty in advance :)
  • If it's USB 3.0 and you're installing Win 7, the answer is no.

    But if the board still has any USB 2.0 ports left, those will probably work.
  • Mga sir, I got this problem after maglinis ng rig.

    My LAN connection disconnects after the motherboard logo or enter BIOS part. Pag nireset ko yung rig ko, may ilaw LAN indicator nung modem pero after ilang seconds nawawala. Pag nasa desktop na ako no internet connection at all. Tried switchimg cables na pero wala padin talaga. Di ko alam ifay need galawin sa modem. I also tried reinstalling the network drivers pero wala padin. I am running my rig with windows 10 pro. Sana matulungan niyo ako huhu
  • Tsaka working din pala wifi connection
  • ^ Try clearing the CMOS RAM, either by removing the battery, or using the Clear CMOS jumper (check your board's manual).

    If that doesn't work, then it's possible that the LAN port suffered ESD (electrostatic discharge) damage while you where cleaning it.
  • @protoype

    try if windows(network trouble shooting) could fix the the issue.
  • Ayaw niya sir statix. Try ko yung suggestion mo sir awakeruze. Salamat!
  • Nga pala sir awakeruze actually napagana pa siya kagabi, tapos ngayon umaga nawala na naman siya. Tsaka what's weird lang nawawala lang yung LAN kapag nakalagpas na ako ng bios and kapag nasa desktop na ako pero pag nirestart ko may ilaw yung lan indicator tapos ayun nga nawawala na siya. Pero try ko muna yung clear cmos
