    US Navy just patented a very compact fusion reactor.

    Sold 1080ti new owner has black screen

    Not a W10 issue if you can't get the POST screen to show with the video card. If the CMOS was cleared, how did you pass back into windows? There should be a fault that prevents boot without hitting F1/2. If it didn't do that, CMOS may not have been cleared. What card was in the system prior...

    Press Shift+F10 to bring up the command prompt on the first screen of the OOBE.

Reboot Now you don't have to agree to any terms!

    Apple to get rid of butterfly switches.

    Cousin's PC will not turn on, trying to diagnose the cause.

    Casting my vote for motherboard or ......drumroll....faulty power switch on the case. As DrLobotomy suggests, the best start is to breadboard the PC. Put the motherboard on a piece of cardboard, plug in 8 pin and 24 pin connectors with a single stick of ram and the cpu only. Jump the power...
