    When Command Prompt launches, type the command:

    chkdsk C: /f /r /x

    The parameters for this command are: /f option will attempt to fix any found errors /r option will locate for bad sectors and recovery any readable information /x option will force the volume you’re about to check to be dismounted before the utility begins a scan If the 😄 drive is in use, type Y to run a scan at your PC’s next restart. If so, exit Command Prompt and restart the computer.


    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

    Thank you very much for the advice and the compliment which I find is helping my decision. Good luck with the Oculus Rift S!

    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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

    I'm unable to get into Windows recovery, f11 did nothing :(

    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.

    Around 500USD when i convert it but this is the baseline of GPU prices in my country for the RTX. 2070 Super is too expensive in here

    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:


  7. @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. 


  8. 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. 

  9. 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'™

    1.  Solder a wire to the outside of the PSU.


    2. Solder the other end of the wire onto a 3 ft metal pole.


    3. Go outside.


    4.  Hammer pole all the way into the ground.


    5.  If anything goes wrong, I didn't tell you this.

    holy crap was this funny. I was like..... what? waht? waaaaat? this man is insan- ohhhh!

    Reverse firstly with secondly.


    It's probably the secondly.


    you can have minor voltage leaks that will discharge without having power outlet issues. it's more common in my experience. 

  11. 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!

    what if my gpu is dead and I need to use onboard hdmi?

    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

  13. what is the longest amount of time you waited to see if it would boot? 
    are you booting into a Windows OS? 


    what kind of storage drive are you using for the OS? HDD, HSDD, SSD, 3.5in, 2.5in, m.2? 

    what are your components or is the a pre-built machine?
