Hey Guys, Once again Thank you Thank you Thank you soooo much for all your help. So, I think my motherboard is not recognized by Everest and speedfan and what not, and thats the reason that they were not displaying the voltage and the reason why I was so confused and having a hard time finding it. I guess the next logical step is to find it from the motherboard’s manufacturer’s website, however, I couldn’t find any bios software and what not. As a matter of fact, I couldn’t even find the motherboard on the website. It is very strange. The motherboard that HP told me I have is:
* Motherboard manufacturer's name: Asus IPIBL-LB
* HP/Compaq name: Benicia-GL8E
* Socket: 775
I tried looking up “Asus IPIBL-LB” on their website and have had no luck…please tell me if I’m confused and doing something wrong.
So with everest, I was only able to get core voltage when I opened the voltage thing like you showed me [B]jflan[/B]. Thanks for the screen shot by the way!
As far as the capacitors, I’m once again out of town for the weekend, so I won’t be able to check the computer, but I don’t remember seeing anything that crazy when I opened up my computer case to dust it. But I will definitely give it a check when I get back home.
Also, the reason I feel that it might not be the PSU, is because well, the original PSU was working fine, I switched over to the new one, which I thought was causing the problems, then I switched back to the original one, meaning that the original one had to get messed up either when I removed it, or while it was sitting around. But in the end, like the Sherlock Holmes quote, whatever is left has to be the culprit.
I really don’t know if I brought this upon myself by trying to upgrade this 2 month old computer, but I feel really crappy about this.
So I will try to figure something out with the PSU voltage, and I will check the capacitors when I get back. Thanks so much guys.
