  1. This gives me something to work with. Thank you so much for your help!
  2. Aah, thanks for the feedback! Just to be sure, a board being dead doesn't actually impact the other components attached to it? E.g. CPU, GPU, etc.
  3. Yup! And just to double-check, I was referencing my mobo's manual: https://download.asrock.com/Manual/Z170 Pro4.pdf I've also uploaded a short YouTube to better help illustrate this issue: Thanks for the continuous follow-ups. Let me know your thoughts.
  4. Yeah, I detached the power button cable to the power button header on the mobo to try jump-starting the computer. Just tried reattaching the cable to the header, but no luck trying to turn on via the computer case's button.
  5. Yes, it's a custom PC I built back in late 2015. Please see attached internal pics below: Forgot to note that in my troubleshooting steps but I've checked that as well. Do you suspect it's an issue with the power button header on the motherboard? I'll try to reseat everything on the mobo again.
  6. My computer has been unable to turn on for a couple of months and I'm unsure of what's the cause of it. Troubleshooting steps I've tried: - Switch off power supply > unplug power cable and devices > plug back cables - Jumping/shorting the motherboard -- with the PSU switched on, using the conductive metallic end of a flathead screwdriver to "short" the Power Button System header on the motherboard Hardware: CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4 GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler GPU: Sapphire Radeon R9 390X 8 GB Tri-X Video Card RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2400 CL14 Memory Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Pro4 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 1000 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply Storages: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 250 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive, 750 GB Hard Drive Case: Cooler Master HAF X ATX Full Tower Case Guides I followed: - How To Troubleshoot A Computer That Won't Turn On - Pt 1: Is It The PC CASE Fault?: https://youtu.be/_2vBc7_fOY8 - README: How to respond to a no POST or no power up situation "The machine doesn't do anything. No beeps, LEDs or spinning fans." section: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/42440-readme-how-to-respond-to-a-no-post-or-no-power-up-situation/ Extra Info: - The PSU is a replacement unit I got from EVGA (first PSU started failing; put in for RMA in March 2020) - Devices that have light indicators e.g. my mouse and my Blue Yeti microphone lit up the PSU is switched to ON, see attached 'mouse_mic_powered.jpg' screenshot. - When jump-starting the motherboard I hear a small tick sound as if the computer is trying to boot. The fans start to spin for couple but then stops. Can anyone please advise what may be the underlying issue? Would the mouse and mic powered on after switching the power supply ON indicate that the power supply is fine? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  7. And is this upcoming lineup of CPUs and GPUs going to be good to get? I want to know because I'm planning to build a $1500 rig soon but I since it has been about a while since the last lineups, I'm also wondering if I should wait for the next lineup.
  8. What's steam's timezone?
  9. I've been hearing that there are strategies done to get the cheapest deal of any game. Like buying last minute before the sales end. Is that true that almost all the games goes down to their cheapest price on the last hours of the sales?
  10. Do you think I would be taxed?
  11. https://www.paypal-gifts.com/us/ This may seem stupid to ask because it's Paypal, but I just want to make sure, is it legit? I've been researching and some people have been saying it is and some saying it isn't. Is this just a third party website acting like Paypal, or is it legitmately one of Paypal's services? I want to know because I don't want to get a gift card at Walgreens with the price going up by the tax. And if I buy through here, would I get taxed?
  12. Hey guys. I'm looking for a good laptop case to go with my g751. Even though it's a 17.3" laptop, people recommend 18" case for it because of it's overall size. I'm looking for one with good quality like good padding and such.
  13. I was looking for other sites selling the same product but they weren't showing up except Adorama's so I did some small research on it and decided to buy it off them.
  14. Sup guys. I placed my order for this yesterday: http://www.adorama.com/ASG751JTCH71.html?cvosrc=cse.google.ASG751JTCH71&cvo_campaign=ppc&cvo_cid=38589028051&gclid=CL7urpaBxsICFcNZ7AodNCkAXQ Is it a good website to buy things off of? I was looking at other websites with the same laptop and this one just feels a little sketchy.
  15. So far we have a map, first-person perspective, and some zombie script. Thing is we don't have a script for guns and shooting, and a script for when shooting a zombie making them die. Can anyone help us out?
  16. Hey all! I'm trying to make a game. Only thing is, I'm not a good programmer/coder. Anyone want to?
  17. http://strawpoll.me/3099375/ http://strawpoll.me/3099398/ This is for my American Democracy class. I need at least ten votes. Please share this with other people too!
  18. Shoot. I guess I'm just getting a gaming laptop instead for $1500: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=9514703&csid=_61 It's just that purchasing these parts are going to be complicated buying from different retailers and I won't have time to build, plus, I'm on the go pretty much. Maybe next year, I'll build one! So does this gaming laptop seem fine?
  19. Alright, I'll consider OC'ing it. How's it looking? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nrPzWZ
  20. Hey thanks for the response! I was wondering if I needed a 700W+ ! Will change that. As for the CPU cooler, I was thinking of just using the stock fan cooler because I'm not planning to OC the CPU any time soon. Do you think that's fine? Or should I just get an after market cooler?
  21. Hey all! I'm picking out parts and I'm planning to buy them ASAP, at least by tonight before prices go back up. What do you think of the build? Original: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/8CM3dC Updated 1: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/F6mxt6 Updated 2: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/nrPzWZ $1163 of those parts + $130 for this full tower case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119160 Total price being $1293.19 This will be my very first build, so please help me out with some feedback, suggestions, and thoughts!! And I'm concern with the PSU being 650W. Should I get something higher?
  22. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=9514703&CatId=3998 Specifically that one?
  23. Thanks for the quick response guys! So it really doesn't matter what I do with it for first use? I can just use it straight out of the box without charging it and use it until it drains forcing shutdown on the laptop, and then just charging it full while off? Also, I just watched that video. Is it bad to keep the plug plugged for long when the battery is fully charged? Is it bad to keep it plugged in, fully charged while using the laptop?
