doesn’t fit in the case: this is simply a problem of ordering a motherboard
without knowing the mobu type the case could hold. When you buy your computer
case you need to be sure it can fit your motherboard. There are four types of
motherboards; mini ITX, micro ATX, ATX and extended ATX. The way I have them
listed here is from smallest to largest.
Using the wrong type
of RAM; the newer RAM is often not compatible with older types of RAM, even if
the slots are the same on the motherboard. DDR2 needs to be installed in a DDR2
specific motherboard. DDR3 is specific to DDR3 motherboards, etc.
RAM not operating at
specified speed. If your DDR3 RAM is running at 1333 instead of the 1600MHz it
was rated to operate, you will need to make some simple changes in the BIOS.
Upping the multiplier in order to land at your rated speed is easy. But DDR3
RAM will default to 1333 unless it is a slower RAM speed. The newer RAM is not
an install it and forget it RAM type. You may need to tweak it in BIOS to get
it working properly and at full performance.
My computer keeps
shutting itself off. This could be caused by your CPU overheating. If you did
not install your thermal paste correctly overheating could occur. Remove the
CPU cooler, scrape off the paste and install a thin layer (thick enough so that

Nowadays, in order to
speed up the computer, many users may use various ways. In fact, since a large
number of reasons can account for the slow speed of computer, it is good to
handle them respectively with specific methods.
Here I would like to
tell you some methods to speed up computer.
In the first place,
let us learn how many files are related to defragmentation.
Continuous files are
the ones that every part is restored in the same area equally in the disk.
Fragmented file means that a file is scattered and put on the different places
in the disk. Unmovable file means that defragmenting is unable to move them.
They are the system running files. When defragmenting, it is impossible to move
them, such as page file of virtual memory.
You can see what you
really need to remove is the fragmented files. You can delete them manually by
Tools”-“Disk Defragmenter”. As for the unmovable files, you
should not remove some of them, because if you do that, the system is
vulnerable to go crash.
And, If it is not so
easy to clear up files of some relatively large software and they can bring
about more new fragments after defragmenting disk, it is better for you to move
them to other disk first to defragment the current one and then move them back
again after finishing it.
Besides, you can clear
up the pre-reading files. Though the pre-reading settings of Windows XP … Read More
