Was this a fresh install or did you clone the disk? What version of Windows are you using?

comment How can I determine if a certain hard drive will fit my chromebook?
@fixer1234 - I think the only challenge to you statement is the thickness of the drive 7mm - 9mm could make a diff of fitting or not. :) but otherwise, I agree.

comment My New PC fans are super loud
@SterlingDuchess - you should put that as an answer and accept. I guess this is why the basic questions should always be checked first...is it plugged in? is it plugged into the right xxx :)

comment Dont know where to connect HD AUDIO or AC-97, & USB
@AngeloCassinelli - I meant the pins on the board. The plugs look right, but there is no blank pin on the board to key the plugs.

comment Dont know where to connect HD AUDIO or AC-97, & USB
Maybe it is the picture, but the audio pins on the board look fully populated...it should have a missing one for the keyed header from the cases front panel...right? It just looks weird. I think that is what is confusing the OP - all the pins on the mobo, though marked, are not matching the headers pin count from the cases front panel headers.

comment Is it possible have speakers pluged in side speaker out?
@sczdavos - What speaker set up are you using? Stereo, 5.1? the HD audio should detect that you plugged something in and suggests what it might be. You could then tell it what got plugged in right? So if you plug in a right and left speaker, you could define that at the pop up. Either speaker or headphone/mic?

comment Does my motherboard support 1333 ram?
Are they in the white slots or grey slots? It could be that RAM is bad, try one stick at a time in the slot the ECS says to use for one stick and see if it boots up. if so, put next stick in by itself. At least it helps to single out the RAM or not.

comment laptop does not “see” external hard drive
Can you see it if you right click computer, manage, disk management? Sometimes there is no letter associated with the drive and thus can not be "seen". If this is the case, right click the drive, change drive letter or path, and add a letter.

comment laptop motherboard processor upgrade
Why doubt the techs? That is like going to the doctor, getting a second opinion, then going to strangers for a diagnosis and cure.
