I need to know what a part is called on a laptop mother board?

I recently removed my motherboard from my laptop to repair my DC Jack.  That operation was successful. However I created another problem. I broke the little white plastic reciever piece that accepts the wire connector from my heat fan/sink. Its a four wire connector.  I desoldered the piece from the motherboard. I am just not sure what this piece is called. I want to order a new one and solder it on.

How to correct bent cpu pins on motherboard in CPU socket? the pins are of motherboard not on cpu...(INTEL)?

There are several pins that are bent on the new INTEL MB that i recently purchased and found it to have some bent pins. I tried to get an RMA but they deny it. However the pins were not so much damaged as they are now. I've read a post here abt correcting CPU pins that are on CPU. But this one is even trickier. Its on the board, in the socket, the pins are thinner than that of CPU and its hard to take a knife or a smart  card in that area... I really need help on this topic as this is a new Board and I dont know how to react. Please help...

Can you run multiple mobos off one power supply??

I was wonder, as I have a whole box of assorted pentium 1's (although I still have to gather up the processors around here, I also have an old p2 sitting here somewhere). I only have a few power supplies, and really, getting more power supplies isn't a problem, but they can consume a bit of power all together. I was wondering how many motherboards it would be possible to power off say a 300 watt power supply? I was thinking of splicing some additional mobo power connectors in off other power supplies. I want to just run these all open and don't plan to use them for much more than giant hard drive controllers (4 hd's to a mobo isn't that bad, wouldn't take up much more space than 4 external usb drives).

I know I will probably have to sauder it but if anyone has done it and had success at it please let me know. Ipod works without battery if it is plugged into the wall charger and if you hook up external speakers it works, but there is no memory resume since there is no battery and I can't transfer my stuff off the harddrive onto my pc.

How to combine AT and ATX power supplies to power same system (motherboard)?

Hello,   I am struggling to upgrade a certain medical system . The device I have contains an old motherboard which powered by an AT power supply. My problem is that the power supply board (which supplies the AT power) has other functions, and there's no way to be replaced (by an ATX PSU). I already bought the motherboard: http://www.ibase.com.tw/2009/MB970.html , with INTEL core i5 CPU  Cry Cry. I can't risk my power supply board in attempting to operate the new parts (motherboard, CPU, 4 Gb RAM, CPU fan, SATA harddisk, and DVD), I believe it won't stand that kind of power consumption. I know you'll say this won't work at all -I know, but I was thinking about using voltage regulators to generate the 3.3 v rail from the same AT power lines. OMG I really need help about: How I can connect the AT and ATX power supplies to this motherboard (and to the other parts), ensuring that I am not risking my AT power board at all?. Another headache is that the AT power board has to work at the same time with the motherboard. And in order for the system to work the AT power board has to work (you know that a feedback circuit should be completed) that's why it should be connected to the motherboard.   This really became a challenge for me. I can't stop thinking, planning, and dreaming about it. If you have any idea or any experience about this, I would like and hope to hear from you...

Dual-Channel RAM? Answered

I have a Gigabyte GA-H55M-USB3 Motherboard and an i5-760 CPU. I have been using 4x1GB DDR3-10600 modules, and then recently bought 2x4GB DDR3-10600 modules hoping to get 10GB, however, I can't seem to get it to work. All the modules are in working order and work individually. I currently just have a single 4GB module in. If I insert more, I either get a constant bios speaker tone indicating RAM error, or it will post successfully, but Windows will bluescreen. I have looked in the booklet and it is unclear as to how I should install the modules, but I thought I had to install them in matched pairs corresponding to the coloured slots on the motherboard. I have tried the 4GB modules in the white slots and the 1GB modules in the blue slots, but it won't post. Putting the two 4GB modules in a white and blue slot will post fine, but BSOD on startup. Any idea how I can get this configuration to work with my board? My CPU and board both support dual-channel DDR3 memory, so I can't see the problem here.

What to do with a bricked all-in-one pc?

I have a bricked Dell Studio 19 All-In-One PC, and wanted to know if I could use it for something. It was bricked by a failed BIOS update. There was a program from dell which came installed and updated any other of their software and drivers on the computer. Only after the failed update I found out that updating the BIOS is really unnecessary. The only fix I know for the motherboard is replacing it, and the only place I found out that refurbishes them are from a company in the US, and it's not cheap at all. (I used to live in the US, and moved to Brazil later) Well anyway, I wanted to know if I can use the computer for something else, like use the monitor for a different computer and use its bluetooth mouse and keyboard on a different computer too. I think the only thing really useful in it is the processor which is already old (Intel E7500 and a 320GB HDD). http://www.dell.com/us/dfh/p/studio-one-19/pd http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/studio-one-19/diagnose Thanks for the help!

Will this motherboard support a dual core CPU? Answered

I'm helping my friend do some upgrades on his computer, it's a Compaq Presario SR2034NX desktop. I'm wondering if it will support a dual core processor or not. According to HP, it doesn't, but looking around on the internet, I've seen quite a few people have upgraded to dual cores. However, there's some minor differences with this particular motherboard. It seems that there are actually two different types of motherboards with the same model number from Asus (A8M2N-LA). On the HP site they have different HP model numbers (a more advanced board - the NodusM3-GL8E, and the one I have - the Naos-GL6; both with the same A8M2N-LA number for Asus) It appears that the NodusM3-GL8E supports all sorts of fun things like 8 GiB of DDR2 800 RAM and dual cores up the wazoo. However, the Naos-GL6 looks like a stripped down version of the NodusM3-GL8E (two less RAM sockets, etc.), so it might not support a dual core. I'd like to know before purchasing, since Newegg won't accept processor returns for a refund. Also, 800 Mhz RAM would be nice to have, HP says it only supports 667 Mhz RAM but other people have put 800 Mhz in with no issues. Does anyone know if my friend's mobo will support a dual core and 800 Mhz RAM?

What heatsink should I get for my AMD FX-8350?

In short: I built a computer octoboer 2013, I used an AMD FX-8350, the default heatsink is terrible and often gives me the BSoD when playing games or rendering things in Cinema 4D, What heatsink should I get? I don't know much about heatsinks, especially seeing that I used the stock heatsink. My motherboard is an ASUS M5A99X (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131874) and my case is a RAIDMAX Seiran ATX-902WB (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156269). My budget is about $60 or so. I don't want to spend more than I need to though. The most demanding thing that gets me the BSoD is rendering things like on Cinema 4D 100% CPU. When I render, however, I usually set the affinity of Cinema 4D to only 5 cores instead of eight. So here are some of my questions: Do I need an extra wire from my PSU to run the fan? Or does the fan on the heat sink simply have a wire to plug into the CPU fan socket? Also, do I need to take my motherboard off in order to put the heatsink in? Thanks!
