Selling my rig, spend years building. Considering everything that is included, i'd say this is a great deal!
After overhauling my system, i've gone through 3 maxtor HD's only to find each had failed.
I ran memtest to secure the RAM. All parts are new, so I cannot figure out why these new HDs fail within a week.
Could the mobo or CPU be dammaged and contribute to this?
Since I built my new system, game preformance has been sub-par.
I'm getting 30's fps in CS:S - and 20's in BF 2 @ 1680x1050 no AA/AF. On top of that, my 3dMark05 score is around 3600. CPU and HD tests reveil no problems, although the HD had a average seek time of 14's.
what could be the...
thanks, i'll try that.
but one main problem still exists. when left on overnight, in a very cool area, my system will crash everytime. It locks up just like it did when running on the bad RAM.
I ran the new stuff for 10+hours in memtest, i'm pretty sure its fine. Could a corrupt slave HD...
ok, new RAM seems to get my OS running fine, but on a second HD certain videos skip around a bit, with no fluctuations in CPU or HD activity.
is there any way to fix the files that shudder and shake around?
took out one bad stick of RAM...the other passed 2 hours of memtest so I used it.
same problems...locking up during games and a good majority of videos are now not playing.
why isnt there a crying smiley?
I rehauled everything recently, but here's my problem:
mobo will power up with just the PSU's main power connector, but when I plug everything else in it will spin the fans for a split second, then shut off.
This is a 480w PSU, and my system is pretty basic. can anyone help?
I have been troubleshooting my computer for the better part of two weeks now...now this:
everything works, I swap out HDs for one I had to format on an old computer. I plug everything in, power up....CPU fan spins for a split second...then dies. computer does not power up after having done so...
