New Dental surgery computers

Recommended Posts

Still sounding like a heat issue here. have you tested the heat of the southbridge yet? I showed a pic of your mobo with the SB in pinlk.

 

Also, try the overheat test....taking the side off and put a fan blowing into it...one of those big desk or freestanding fans, and see how you go.

Just an update on what im doing :

ive purchased another system to use as a server : exact same configs Except the motherboard. its a gigabyte 58X UdEr.

i7 960 6 gigs G skill, BUT the graphics card i got a cheap 45 $ one a gtx 210. and a 450watt power supply.

what im doing now is swapping the ram chips with the old one and swappping mobos too to see which one is the culprit.

Also I just noticed the following on the old faulty set up :

The ATX 12 volt power connecter has 4 pegs.. into a 8 slots motherboard connector :.... as 4 of the slots were covered with a plastic covering. I have removed that plastic covering and now placed in all 8 pegs. DOes that mean i did not supply the motherboard with enough volts ? and hence got the BSODs ?

anyways ive set the new rig up with Raid 10, 4 HDDS with remote back up. ive learnt a lot today.....

the dodgey set up ill use as my gaming machine.

Once again i7 960 is way OP.

 

 

Where did you buy all this from?

I really think you should just stop cheaping out with things you really don't know about and pay a professional to set it all up and maintain it.

 

Mean but Honest.

Is that really necessary mudg3?

I'd be asking if Sceptrecore's pointless, stupid and often troll like comments are really necessary. Atleast mudg3 actually contributes to these forums.

I wish I could offer something useful on the topic of SC destroying threads but really I am one to stir people up sometimes to but I agree that its getting worse.

back to the topic at hand fellas :)

the answer to your questions :

i bought it all at msy.

i had a chat with my it friend and he knows way lot more than me, and yes im begining to think that im way over my head. im just a part time gamer not full time it consultant. We made a decision not to purchase server 2008 as our dental software has server and client versions that run on windows and doesnt need server 2008. i given the ram chips to the guys at msy and they are going to test it. in the mean time ill be overseas.

I could create my own server and i'm pretty sure it would be damn good, but if i owned a dentist practice i guess i would just outsource it anyway (write it off on the tax return). The time and money spent on headaches like this isn't worth the risk of a DIY system when your entire business is hanging in the balance. Glad to see your getting somewhere, but i i7-960 for a server.....Do what the other said and hire a pro at elast that way if something goes wrong you're not entirely to blame!

 

In regards to "GO, fuck yourselves" - People in here can really jump on someones dumb decision and give them a hard time and make you feel like a num nut, but take some advice. Shrug it off because unless they keep going on about it they were really only trying to push you in the right direction!

smack me water off a ducks back now.... they had some good intentions though....

I dont see why everybody seems to think that it must be handle by an IT professional. I have had my computer network set up for ten years. I had a computer blown up on me which i replaced with in 1 day and restored all the back up data. It not hard and its certainly is not rocket science. The networks are simple basic stuff. I have had a hardrive also pack it in.. back up data was immediately restored after new hard drive was purchased, and software was reinstalled. MIssion critical the data it is, But the whole surgery DOES NOT HANG ON THE BALANCE OF IT. If a patient died on me yes My reputation as a dentist would hang on the balance. if a patient was unhappy with treatment provided then yes i would loose that patient. but if my computer wasnt working for half a day they dont care about it.. as long as i can still do my work and that they are treated well and with respect. What could result in the computers being down? i cant issue them a receipt for payment or write digital notes take digital X rays.. Well guess what i can do it all manually take a normal film x ray, and write notes on a paper and as for the receipts, i tell the patients" dont pay today pay come back when our computers are back up." they are more than happy not to pay on the day :)

if the computers are down it doesnt stop me from giving the Local Aneasthetic or Drilling into their teeth. the one thing that can stop me from doing work is when the mouth light died on me.. i cant see inside the mouth.. or the compressor blowing up on me the drills wont work..

And the person to blame if something goes wrong with my computer network is me or the F$%#$ computer equipement !!!

Im going to ruffle some feathers by writing the above but my dental surgery has survived 10 years with full data restored with out an IT guy.

 

i came to atomic looking for answers and some info, since the local IT guys down the road thought it was software issues resulting in bsod. I got some answers and knowledge from atomic, many thanks.

I have also plugged inthe 8 pin 12 volt adaptor and have not had a BSOD since. The moboard came with 8 pin plug but 4 of the pins were covered up witha plastic thing that i thought was especially placed there for the moboard. I suspect i may have found the answer since i have had no BSOD since.. but its only been 3 days.. and i was fed up with it so i sent the ram off to msy for inspection. no ram = no computer so no BSOD yet. ill give you an update when i come back from holidays and get the results from msy.

Because you couldn't handle it, thats why.

I wouldn't be so hard.

Everyone would like to have their cake and eat it too..............but sometimes it just isn't practical.

Ofcourse, I've got to admit, I like his attitude, alot of people would have just given up and gone straight to an IT professional, atleast he gave it a shot.
