    DVR question

    That was my question. I don't understand why are there fancy expensive cameras and a DVR which is off and it all just collects dust. Thank you for your reply

    DVR question

    Hello, I have a (maybe) dumb question. I work at a local cafe and since workers were stealing money the boss decided to take a cut from everyone's paycheck. The place is completely surrounded by security cameras and there is a DVR which they are all connected to. The DVR is off (none of the LEDs are on), but cameras start flashing red LEDs when it's night time since they have night-vision. So does that mean that the cameras are on and DVR switched off? And does that also mean that the cameras are on and no one can stream them live and they can't record?
  3. If anyone encounters this problem, I'll list all the things I did and what actually helped me solve it. I've only encountered this on gigabyte motherboards and a simple (and only) solution I found was install Gigabyte's APP Center and install the @BIOS feature, download the latest BIOS from the Gigabyte's official site and install flash it using APP Center. I tried: Memtest86+, Seagate SeaTools HDD test, tried turning off fast boot in BIOS and Windows 10, turned off hibernation, tried updating every single driver I could find everywhere. The solution was to update the BIOS to the latest version USING a fore mentioned Gigabyte's APP Center.
  4. Hello everyone, I have a weird problem that started happening a few weeks ago. I don't really use my computer that often (approx. 3-4 times a week). When I press the power button, all the lights turn on, all the fans start spinning and all that, but I don't get anything on the monitor, it doesn't even turn on and I have a motherboard speaker plugged in and it doesn't necessarily beep but makes an underwater sound kind of. I tried resetting the BIOS by pulling out the CMOS battery and it doesn't work. I tried reseating the CPU, the GPU, disks, tried to push in the cables (thought maybe a cable somewhere was unplugged a little bit), no luck. I switched out my RAM stick from slot #2 to slot #4 and I passed POST and booted up completely normally. After a few restarts it happens again and I have to reseat the RAM into a different slot to POST and boot. I know I have dual channel memory motherboard and I only have one 8 gig stick in slot #2 usually, but I am not sure if that would cause this kind of problem. My specs are: CPU - Intel core i7 4790 (non-K) GPU - Sapphire Toxic R9 280X MB - Gigabyte Z97-HD3 SSD - Kingston HyperX Fury 120GB HDD - Seagate Barracuda 1TB PSU - Thermaltake Smart SE 730W RAM - Kingston HyperX Savage (1x8GB) None of these components are overclocked or have ever been overclocked. Thanks in advance!
  5. I took it to a computer repair shop and bought a new PSU right away. They plugged everything in the new PSU and it all worked (thank God). Apparently my surge protector's fuse was completely blown. I got a refund for everything because the company that is providing me with electricity fucked up somewhere in the lightning protection system we have. I also called the company that I purchased parts from and I couldn't RMA.
  6. Fuck. Well I guess high end comes with a high price. Thank you guys for helping out!
  7. Thanks, I'll take it to the shop later today. If my parts are fried I can only buy new ones? I do have warranty.
  8. What's that? And I don't have a spare PSU lying around
  9. I'll test the power supply, but what about other parts? How can I know that they are(n't) okay?
  10. All of the computer shops I have here charge for anything (fixing, inspecting...). If I could RMA it, that would be the best, but I don't know if I have the right to because it's not my nor their fault.
  11. Hey everybody, Recently, there was a big thunderstorm in my area and a lightning struck my house. My router, TV and PC happened to be the only electronics to break. My ISP changed the router right away, we bought a new TV because the old one was messed up as it was already, BUT my PC is still broken. I am thinking it's the power supply that broke only, but I'm not sure I'm only 15. I am supposed to have a 5 year warranty on every computer part. Since I ordered all the parts from Switzerland I need to wait so long for them to get back to me, let alone send them the rig to fix and ship it back to me. Specs: Intel core i7 4790(non-K, stock everything) Gigabyte Z97-HD3 Corsair CX 750W Kingston Savage 8GB RAM Kingston SSD and Seagate HDD. How can I verify that it's the ppwer supply only that needs to be replaced? When I press the power button literally nothing happens. I already tried a few different power cables and so far nothing works. Thank you in advance!
  12. Weirdest thing happened this morning. Last night I normally shut the computer down, no problems. Today, however, the same thing happened. I went to clear the CMOS (and reseat the GPU since the CMOS battery lies underneath the GPU) and I also put a RAM stick into a different slot and now it boots normally just like yesterday. If I need to do this bullshit every 24 hours I'm gonna smash every single component in this rig. I have the small speaker attached to the motherboard for beep troubleshooting, it didn't beep at all when the monitor wouldn't turn on, but after everything is reseated and CMOS cleared it beeped again. This is just building up my rage level everyday. What the fuck is the problem?
  13. A big THANK YOU to all of you for the input. I got it working. I reset the CMOS battery and reseated the RAM stick and GPU. Don't know which one made it happen, but it's working now! Thanks guys!
  14. Thanks, I got it out. I would reset it in BIOS, but remember nothing on the screen not even BIOS
