with the world!
He’s dead, Jim!
Jim, I’m a doctor not a stone mason! Remember that one? It still makes me
That’s an HP Pavilion Media Center PC you’ve got there and a friend of mine
had one that the board also went bad. No beep codes and nothing came on the
screen. It turned on and that was it. I did this same solution by getting a
Gigabyte AM2+ motherboard and for this particular case and setup, it worked
perfectly. So I wonder if these particular machines were just bad to begin
Really, really useful video.
Really Helpful subscribed you thanks!keep making new videos
I have been a computer hobbyist for more than 12 years and I’ve learned
more from your videos over the past two days than any other source. I am
addicted to watching. Please keep on doing these videos and Thank You!
Thanks for the video Carey I am trying to look for a career in IT sector in
INDIA and I had to know how to build a computer and fix hardware problems
one thing I never understood by watching videos is which cable of the power
supply goes where and you explained that as well :)….. Thanks once again
thanks a lot.
I found a computer that would not beep had a black monitor, but all of the
fans and the hard drive and dvd drive would work. It turned out to be a dud
I have always loved doing this sort of IT work. Problem is, if you work in
an enterprise environment you can only go so far and then you hit a wall
where you can’t go any further with your career. I watched the whole video
even though everything you said is fundamental. I just watched because I
miss doing this stuff.
nice to see a fellow builder. ive also been into it since the 80’s
your demo videos are abolutly wonderful and fully informative
Did you know that you can remove the product key label without damaging it.
Each time I move a MB or transfers HDD or replace a MB to a new case or
used case, I take my time to remove the product key label if it’s not to
fragile. And I also take a picture of it and print it enlarge on a 4×6
picture and on a nice label. That way a user has both.
An enjoyable watch, thanks. Like you, I’ve been repairing and building PCs
for people for years, and kept nodding and smiling when the lessons of
common experience cropped up: don’t do the screws up all the way so you can
line things up first; save screws when you’re starting out; reuse old case
switches and LEDs; drain the power from the system, etc. For anyone nervous
about a first PC build, go for it, it’s hugely satisfying, especially with
good videos like this to help.
Nice video I study to more matters so Very thanks you upload more videos
Very nice, I have subscribed and I will be watching many more of your
That ~300w Bestec PSU would be better then most new generic 500w PSUs as
they usually put out 19a on the 12v rail compared to 18a on most generics,
and 300w is sufficent for most average systems, that and no one needs or
cares for a power switch at the back and no the fan in that PSU will last
longer then a new generic psu fan too
“Check disk” (Chkdsk) wont show up on bootup with Windows 7 (and most
operating systems including XP) *UNLESS* inconsistencies are detected (aka
file system is “dirty”)
You did no actual hardware tests to check the health of the memory, hard
drive, or any other components either
How long have you been doing this?
Thanks for the info.
