  1. How have you checked the 8pin and 24 pin?..will the PSU turn on when you hit the PWR switch on your case?
  2. There is no easy way to keep the dust out of a modern computer. The use of positive air pressure works, but on cases with open mesh the amount of fans needed can be noisy and expensive. It is just better to adopt a good cleaning regiment for your system.There is nothing wrong with vacuuming your computer, as long as you do it with the power off, and use the proper attachments. Try to avoid the use of compressed air, the stuff can cause more harm than good.If you have some dust impacted into heatsink fins then use the compressed air, but do so away from the MB.
  3. I am sorry you are having trouble. Would you be able to try some basic steps to determine the cause(s) of this error? Install this program and trace the BSOD . http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html The next thing to look at will be your DIMM's. Run this program to see if they are OK. http://www.memtest.org/ or http://www.memtest86.com/ The final choice for you to make is the down grading of those GPU drivers from the 320 series to the 314 series..this we could do just to eliminate them from our search Good luck let us know what you find..
  4. Yes. It may help with your current troubles. Have you seen any other issues?
  5. Sorry to hear about the frustration, i hope that you get some relief with a sound card. take a look at the ASUS Xonar stuff,
  6. I use Glary utilities and Bleach Bit to clear the dust bunnies, and CCleaner for the Registry. You need to be carefull with what you check off in Bleach Bit.
  7. Make sure that you are plugged into a black or white USB port..not a blue or red USB port. Do not use the case USB ports. You may want to remove any other audio software drivers . My CMstorm Sirus head set when used with the USB DAC will whistle and buzz. I needed to remove my analog software install the USB software..then reinstall the analog audio. It works now on both USB and analog, without the whistle and buzz.
  8. It sounds like some macros have been behaving badly..remove all your macro functions and remap the KB. if , after reseting the KB to a standard model,it still gives you trouble, try it in another system.
  9. Some older systems will not boot from a USB..I had one that did the same sort of thing...never could figure out why..it even had an entry in the boot loader for USB device...it would never boot, it would hang and I would need to do a hard restart. You may want to see if there is a BIOS update. It did not work for myself, but as I said it was a older system.
  10. did you clean the OS of the 320 drivers first ?..did you clean the registry and then install the 314 drivers..?
  11. Check out this post..read the whole page..it relates to your issue..and it suggests a number of fixes..Let us know if any worked for you. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itprovistasp/thread/9273d705-709e-43bd-a06b-f02b5f649acb
  12. Just try to get the of screws in a mid tower ATX case with modern after market CPU coolers in place..A or C is much nicer..if you use the stock cooler..than B may work..but stock cooler?..come on..!!..just use nails..
  13. Turning V sync on and off may tell you if it GPU related..Try this as a last resort for GPU related coil whine...http://www.overclock.net/t/1094728/possible-fix-for-coil-whine The cure for the PSU whine will void your warranty and may cause shocks...you do not want to discharge a capacitor with your body..If you feel that you can not live with the whine and you are sure it is from the PSU then either RMA it or sent it into the spare PSU closet and get your self a new one.Good hunting..let us know what you find..
  14. You can use this: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html to see the BSOD.
