Hey guys,

       A couple of minutes after my system has booted up, the tool tips that pop up on system tray icons when you hover over them will stop working. Any idea what causes this?

Computer Help / Volume shadow copy service
« on: May 04, 2014, 09:57:42 AM »
I thought this service was supposed to shut down after inactivity?. The service is set to manual and it starts with windows. My back ups work fine and so does my registry back ups. I did a fresh install of windows 7. On my old install, it would shutdown after back ups were done. Which way is it supposed to be? I ran the windows repair program for it.


Computer Help / Can a blown motherboard also take out the cpu?
« on: January 23, 2014, 11:22:35 AM »
Hey Bud,

   Here is my problem. I was stress testing my amd 8320 on my asrock 990fx extreme 9 and the system shut down...then I could smell something metalic.. crap!!!  ooppss :shocked: So my first guess was the PSU as my system would not boot (nothing from the motherboard, not lights, nothing). Pulled out the PSU and tested it and it works (hooked up fans to and it runs). So I figured I would order a new motherboard (the one that blew up smelled bad right around he VRM's but no sign's of burning or bulging capacitors, obviously the motherboard took a crap :rolleyes:). So I ordered the Asus crosshair V formula z. Hooked everything up with old power supply and old CPU, the motherboard boots with lights and fans spining  but will not post with error code FF (nothing specific about it in the manual). However the led on the motherboard indicates a cpu problem. So I didn't trust it, went and bought another PSU and same results. My question after this long winded speech is. When the asrock blew could it have taken the CPU with it? Oh, also tried different RAM in the new motherboard as well, same result.
  What could have caused this motherboard to fail? It's only 6 months old (I know anything can happen). It is supposed to be thier top of the line board for the FX furnace/power hungry waffer.
   I have just order the 8350 and hope it works with the new motherboard.

Merry Christmas to Shane and everyone here at the forum! I hope you all have a happy and safe new year as well. Take care.


Hey Bud,

    I currently have system restore enabled on my old lap top. Would the registry back up program suffice instead of system restore? I'm leaning toward yes. Looking for validation though.

Hi Guys,

    Have you seen this in msconfig for avast(now avast has two start up items). Looks like it's part of the new avast, but no one seems to know exactly what it does. Any ideas as to what it does.

General & Misc. / Soundcard
« on: September 02, 2013, 02:31:28 PM »
Hey Shane,

  I need a sound card but my video cards (crossfire) block the PCI and PCIEx1 slot. I do have another PCIEx16 slot. Will a PCI x1 soundcard work in the x16 slot?
