  1. what do you mean monitor burned in? changed 5 power surges? you mean the outlets? you changed them yourself? you probably want to make sure the wiring is right and that the house itself is grounded properly. i'm starting to think @Hilltrot had a good idea. it's not going to be the c13 cable man.
  2. try this if you can get to the command line. make sure the disk you want is actually the C:drive using Dir commands. or List Volumes
  3. startup repair. if it doesn't work, command prompt and you'll have to do some terminal commands
  4. you hyped the system up too much while building it and now you've given the poor thing performance anxiety.
  5. thanks, good luck in your future VR endeavors! i hope you enjoy it, and i hope you're enjoying that overkill monitor. i wish i had that for CAD work.
  6. did you test the new one by itself?
  7. WXGA++ is just 1600x900 XGA, WXGA, WXGA+ are all just resolutions. i'd pick that amazon recommendation after you read the reviews or the first one by bightfocal. his virus money? you mean the american stimulus checks?
  8. you've edit the original post and only replied okay twice. was this a forum shitpost? i'm confused.
  9. WUXGA, WXGA, WXGA++, HD, HD+ are all resolutions. ignore this if you're more familiar with pixel count. you shouldn't have that many screen options. most laptops only have one or two screen part numbers. you should do a direct replacement of your screen part number. do you have a link to the page you see all of this info on?
  10. whoa. no post? test each separately? did you put the SLI bridge on?
  11. while most everything looks fine, for VMs and Video editing i'd get a CPU refresh if you're not getting the results you want. i'd monitor your RAM usage and see if you need more later, i don't know how you use your machine. if you're trying to go with VR, hear me out. I have an Oculus Rift CV1. i use it with a GTX1070 +intel 7700k. it's okay. it's playable, but i've got a RTX2070Super on the way and i'm trying to find an Oculus Rift S in stock. i don't think the GTX 1060 will be preferable for VR. i know it's what the Oculus Rift S suggests for specs, but it's really a minimum. TL:DR add more RAM if needed, do a CPU refresh only if you NEED it, get a better GPU for VR. PS: I appreciate this well formatted post.
  12. picture 2 is your best bet. good on you for including fill and drain ports. why are you using 6 fans for the Rad? you really only need 3 in Pull flow. sandwhiching fans does not give you enough benefit for the cost or space it takes.
  13. the posts on the right are just the newest threads. it's great for helping people fix issues they're having.
  14. this post looks like it wasted all it's budget on a monitor, then started building a pc to go with it, but only had leftover funds. did you already buy this monitor? why did you pick that monitor?
  15. pull the drive out, get a cheap SATA to USB adapter, so you can get all of your files off of it, buy a new SSD (m.2 if you can) and flash windows onto the new SSD. Move your files onto your SSD or just lose everything and reformat and reinstall windows on that HDD. i'd get away from using HDDs for OS drives. they're slower, and fragment over time. you have to defragment them regularly. before you hit the nuclear button though, make a bootable windows 10 USB and see if you can boot to it, then use it's recovery tools to run a checkdisk on your HDD before you declare it dead.
  16. that's odd. i just bought a 2070Super for 520USD in the USA. if @SavageNeo is right about prices and you can find a 5700xt you might want to consider it. check out this compare:
  17. @OP, you need to put that motherboard on some cardboard of something man. is it just laying on tile? carpet? wtf? put the motherboard on cardboard, get us some more light. make sure your PSU 24Pin and 4+4 Pins for CPU power are plugged in. reseat your RAM and try again. you should only need MoBo, PSU, CPU, and RAM to get the thing to "start" even if you don't push video.
  18. YES! okay. so it's probably not a GPU or RAM issue. the issue is possible fragmentation or a corrupt boot sector. this is good-ish. you're going to want to get into windows recovery if you can. just start SLAPPING that F11 key when you boot up. from there you should be able to get into windows recovery. you'll want to go into trouble shoot, then something like check disk, or repair disk.
  19. are you going to buy rails for the front and back or just make shelves? are you planning to put panels on? drill holes for fans? cut holes for power through the bottom?
  20. what prices are you able to get on both of these? why not 2070 Super
  21. yay for fanbois. I'd suggest a good Samsung 970Evo 1TB m.2 and yes, any SATA drive will work for mass storage. if you're going for some RAM with FlexFactor™ you should get the ICONIC Dominator Platinums from corsair. with the highest clocks you can find. and then overclock that sh*t. you know, for Flexin'™
  22. holy crap was this funny. I was like..... what? waht? waaaaat? this man is insan- ohhhh! you can have minor voltage leaks that will discharge without having power outlet issues. it's more common in my experience.
  23. okay. first boot into BIOS/UEFI and see if the BIOS sees that drive. if not it's probably a dead drive. I also wouldn't rule out a GPU issue yet either. just so you know that's on the table. it's possible a GPU boots the BIOS screen driverless, then fails when it tries to render an OS. however, if you see the little windows loading dots spinning in a ring that means the GPU is probably fine. and maybe we can perform a chkdsk (checkdisk) and ugh, not to make more waves, but it's also possible that you have a bad RAM stick that has a dead spot in memory that's not accessed in BIOS, but is once it gets an OS dumped to it. SO! look in the BIOS, and tell me if you see the HDD. Then tell me if you get the windows spinning dots. then we can try a ChkDsk!
  24. your debug? you mean your POST? do people still call it a POST? is POST still a thing anymore?
  25. the true magic/treasure is the friendship you made along the way. so that you can borrow a GPU to get your machine working for a short term. or just pop off the little coin battery on the motherboard and put it back in after 30 seconds to reset your CMOS/ BIOS
