    List of  question suggesting what to check basicly

    . Did you try a different DP cable on that GPU ?

    2.Did you try this DP cable on a different device ?

    3. Do you have a known good cable from another device that could be used to check this gpu ?

    4.Did you try different monitor on this gpu+dp cable ?

    5. Nothing weird in Nvidia panel?

    6. Did you try a clean install of nvidia drivers ?

    7. Is it working normally on dp/hdmi without OC?

    even without ssd/hdd you should be able to get into bios


    without gpu ? it depends if  you have a cpu with inbuild graphic and monitor is connected to mobo output


    auto-reboot usually is not due to lack of disk/os as it would just wait for a drive/command etc


    Maybe start with listing your parts ;)

    copies on all kinds of drives and all this unallocated space

    You mean you got partitions that use only a part of disks ? Your post is kind of all over the place :) 


    When not sure of what was done etc and having a copy of data a wipe is a good thing because you start with clean slate and setup everything from scratch as it should be.

    I’m not able to find the right header ugh

    Use manual for your mobo  - they can be found on mobo manufacture website

    That can have a lot of underlying causes so it doesn't say much.


    I'm of out ideas sorry, it's either RAM or PSU.


    edit: last one tiny thing. You tested RAM module individually  but did you try to run the system with only one for a bit to see if it crashes - then switch modules and try the second one this way. You could call it battle testing not with synthetic loads/tests.

    No I'm an not getting into the bios. The monitor stays black and the fans all spin

    Did you try putting only one stick of ram at the time ? Make sure you put the ram in correct slot when putting only one stick.

    Did you try min setup to check if you get into bios at least - min setup I mean mobo+cpu+one ram+psu ofc but no gpu, no drive etc. Did you try to reset bios (i know you got new mobo but we need to make sure that's it in default setting.

    I've been getting hit with Asus Anti-Surge Protection out of the blue recently, I've tried everything, I have no clue what else I can do. I haven't had a single issue with my build until now. Built somewhere between 2013-2016. I installed a new Thermaltake Smart Pro 650W last night, 5min into CS:GO anti-surge is trigger and back to ruin my entire night. My BIOS is updated, drives updated, I'm in the dark now on this...


    [UserBenchmarks: Game 78%, Desk 89%, Work 63%]



    My Build -

    • Intel Core i7-6700K 4 GHz Quad-Core Processor

    • Noctua NH-U12S chromax.black 55 CFM CPU Cooler

    • Asus SABERTOOTH Z170 S ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

    • EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti SC GAMING ACX 2.0+

    • Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-2400 Memory

    • Samsung 850 Pro Series 256 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

    • Western Digital BLACK SERIES 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

    • OCZ ModXStream Pro Power Supply - 600W

    • JUST INSTALLED Thermaltake Smart Pro 650W


    I no longer believe the PSU is the issue, it must be my GPU or MoBo. I don't know how I can figure out if that's true as I have no backups to test with. Any ideas?

    Simplest things first : are all the power cables plugged all the way in (especially 8pin for CPU)?


    How frequently is this happening ? When did it start ? Only under load or even on desktop/web browsing ?

    Is there anyone i can personally pay to help me fix this problem with my PC, It crashes very often so I tested the hardware and got these error messages:


    Error verifying data in RAM, The data written to memory is not the same as the information read from memory. This is a very serious error and it’s highly likely that your computer is about to lock up or crash


    FATAL ERROR: Rounding was 0.471224523, expected less than 0.4 Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file.


    I took out each stick of RAM one at a time and the problem remained


    Specs: image.png.41cdc40000e3c269d3b89daf102dacf4.png



    With what did you test ram to get such an info ?


    For RAM testing always use MemTest. Is the RAM still under warranty ? Is this a new, store bought PC  ? How long after building/buying this system crashes started?

    From my Reddit post https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/g2mtat/asrock_b450m_hdvr40_wont_boot/


    ASRock b450m hdv,-r4.0 motherboard,
    Amd ryzen 3 2200g,
    Gskill 2x4 3200mhz ram,


    I have replaced everything but the case


    I have used this computer for about 6 months and one day it doesn't boot. I go throught all the regular troubleshooting steps. Reseat the ram, cables, plug in the case speaker and listen for beeps. Remove all the ram and listen for beeps. Nothing. So I thought "must be the motherboard" so I check and it still has warranty so I send it to ASRock and they send a new one back with updated bios to make sure that wasn't a problem as well. I put it all back together and I have the same issue. The fans spin and no beeps. I do the same troubleshooting steps to no avail. So I send the CPU back to amd. I got that back today and it STILL has the same issue. My question is what do I do now? Do I request a boot kit do I replace something else? I don't know what to do at this point.



    First things first- are you getting into bios /  monitor gets the signal but stays black or nothing at all (only fans)?

    hello. i have a msi h87-g43 military class four. every time i turn it on i have a black screen. everything works and all parts were tested individually. Every time i plug a cable like hdmi or dvi into the motherboard it slows down the fans. But when i plug it into the gpu it still is full speed fans. Anything?


    Kinda looks like either a psu problem with powering the mobo or mobo itself. Is the system working at all (os, bios anything?) when put altogether or is it only powering on prebios and stuck ?


    You wrote that all parts were tested individually ? All of them even mobo with different cpu/psu/ram/gpu ?

    Only on these two games now

    However windows has started freezing randomly as well every 4+ hours

    I have not yet tried snappy and will now

    Crystal disk said the bigger ssd windows is on is at 100% health and the older 970 evo is at 98% health

    Also for notes I have 400gb free on bigger ssd out of 1800gb

    and the other has 50gb out of 450gb

    If you have at least 10gb on windows partition and updates up to date(no 10gb+ updates in que) then free space is not an issue for sure.

    Randomly when it's on for more than aprox 4hours or randomly and 4+ hours is aprox from a day/two ? 


    Is the psu under warranty ?

    Right I've done individual memory tests and nothing came up

    And I let it run for a few days and it hasn't crashed yet

    Until now

    I guess I'm back here for any ideas

    Still almost only crashing on those 2 games ?

    Did you try with updating chipset drivers etc via snappy ?

    Did you tried anything with peripherals ?

    Did you look at drive health - eg Crystal Disk Info ?


    Beside what's above all all earlier things - I'm out of ideas and leaning fully to PSU fault as it may not be able to handle spikes in load, problem with it only havving one 8pin

    Last question and I should be okay to put some possible parts together before coming to a conclusion. Are there any other cards I should consider aside from the GTX 750 Ti/AMD Radeon HD 7850? I just want to expand my options before settling on a card since i' m buying used after all.


    Anyway time to start prepping for my finals and then I can choose what I will actually go with for these upgrades lol

    Can be anything higher (in power) than those if you can get it cheap enough. Example if you can get a GTX950 (or higher) in the same price or lower than 750Ti then go for it. Nothing lower as 750Ti/7850 is an optimal pair with your cpu - lower one and your new gpu will be the bottleneck for the cpu.

    One additional thing as you might not now this a 670 is more powerful than 750ti and those you probably could also get cheap.


    Nvidia gpu power you could say that if you take their number from gtx family as XY0 then

    X|Y+2|0 >> X+1|Y|0

    what i mean on examples

    670 >> 750

    660 around the same 750

    650 << 750

    XY0 << XY0ti

    Thanks for the PSU recommendation! I'm starting to like the idea of fully modular PSU's since it would probably make cable management much easier for me being first time doing so and on top of that my case isn't as friendly for cable management solutions but its still doable lol. It makes sense though since even for my case fans something about the 3 pin to Molex connection just gave me a weird feeling, I guess even the noob in me knows adapters and cheap power sources don't go together really lol


    I'm going to hold back on the RTX 2060 though, it would be nice to have it on hand for when I do build a new rig, but i'd rather not bottleneck my system and would like to fully explore my options after upgrading this rig before even considering stuff for the new one (well aside from the PSU depending on if I will utilize the same wattage in the new one). I'll definitely consider the other stuff for the new build though, after watching a few vids I do like the smaller form factor of a NVMe SSD versus the Sata one in which my case would be a pain in the ass to mount anyway. The Commander MS-I is a decent case but seeing it's a bulk bought part from a prebuilt company all the neat features it has instantly get stripped away lmao

    Get a new PSU for sure. @cbigfoot gave you a nice suggestion with that. You can also look at this list if you can get a modular cheaper - suggestion look at tier A and PSU with long warranty like that Seasonic.


    Getting a RTX 2060 now make zero sense, there is absolutely no point in that if you plan to keep current rig with upgraded GPU for 2-4 years. After that time 2060 could be a bottleneck for new CPU or could just be dead and you would never even use 50% of it's power.

    So you need more RAM, ok probably best way is to just buy that in shop as DDR3 should be cheap as it's older gen - 60-70 bucks would get you 2x8gb from Patriot, Mushkin or G.Skill.
    Sata SSD is obvious that's why I didn't even mention it. You'll be upgrading psu, gpu, ram quite a bit under your budget so you can spend that 35-50 bucks for a WD Green, Kingston A400, Crucial BX500. Later on when you will be building new rig you can take that ssd and throw it into cheap usb3.0 external enclosure.


    PSU+RAM+SSD+GPU would on total be around 300-350 bucks from what i see online. PSU will be moved to new rig later on, SSD could be used as external.

  15. @Winnah5

    Upgrading this machine hmmm... I wouldn't. That CPU is old and weak as hell it will be a bottleneck for any modern GPU. If don't want to buy a new rig just yet but feel the need to upgrade GPU then I would suggest getting a used GTX750Ti/AMD Radeon HD 7850 or something a bit more powerful that will still be cheap. 60fps on medium in GTA5 no way with that CPU, maybe 60fps on low.

    RAM 16gb with that CPU is not worth it if you don't use memory hungry programs - you won't be using it in new future rig as it's DDR3.

    Update: My little brother bought the exact same PC as I did at the same time too. Now he's the one getting lags, we updated windows 10 the same day (4-5 days ago). So it really makes me think it has something to do with windows. But then it doesn't make sense why it worked to let it sit overnight. Because if you just do a simple restart it still lags when it boots. Shutting it off for 30 minutes and it still lags. I checked the task manager when it happend for him and cpu is at 0-1%, memory is at 18%. Should we get an earlier version of windows?

    What about disk usage ? Some programs/processes could use only a fraction of cpu/memory available but have massive disk usage.

    I just did a quick cable clean up job on my pc. I guess I screwed it up again as it started crashing when it went over 100% power with cpu load. I tried fixes and none worked, and I can tell when they do as kombustor doesn't report GPU power if its not working. What would you do?

    After fixing lose cable, crashing at max load and what would I do ? That's simple but probably not what anyone looking for help wants to hear - get a new PSU. 

    With the current one you could "fix" the issue for a bit by going back to stock (zero OC) on both CPU and GPU or even undervolt CPU a bit but that would only be putting a bandage over a hole in a wheel - won't fix the problem only hide it for a bit. Get a new PSU asap and while picking it look at the tier list

    Anything tier A or higher will be good (don't go for S instead of A as it won't give you anything, only do that if you can get it cheaper that lower tier one). For wattage use a psu calculator < this is the best one I know as it also allows to input OC, AIOs etc (don't buy recommended psu just use this to calculate how much W you need).

    I'll try all this


    Also somebody sent me this:



    This indicates I have scenario 3 which in my case is a hardware problem

    But what do you think as i have sent the event viewer pages

    I've seen all that on MS site - that's why I wanted you to hit it with synthetic load and wanted those logs. From what i see there it doesn't seem like PSU fault but I cannot be sure in 100% as you PSU is on the lower side on quality for such a system.


    One problem with synthetic load compared to games is that the load gradually increases and in game it's a sudden spike. 


    edit: Idea of unpluging all usb devices and using different ones is based on one of the errors from event viewer - "Error setting traits on Provider" if you would google the id after this text you would stumble on a lot of information about this being a problem with usb devices, usb controllers etc.

    One more thing you could try is to get best possible drivers for chipset, usb controller and things like that  - for this task i would use a small piece of software called Snappy Driver Installer. I've used it with good effect on a lot of system, to be safe always install max 1-2 drivers and one time and create restore points.

    gpu driver update seems to have fixed the problem. I've had this issue for a while when using the the lenovo vantage program. Driver update in the passed didn't work till now.

    So everything is ok now ?

  20. First step unplug and replug every power cable PSU <> mobo, PSU <> GPU, PSU <> drives

    If that didn't work take out gpu from pci-e slot and plug back in, if that didn't work do the same with ram, if that didn't work do the same with cpu.


    If nothing from above helped we'll  think some more.

    A frys employee recommended it to me. This was before I had my current build as the PSU transferred over. I fixed it anyways though, it was a lose power cable. I didn't know that psus were really tiered back when I got it 2 years ago. Also isn't the Smart Pro RGB a bad PSU too, as this isn't really an entry level system?

    Ahh so it's from an older system, that's why it was paired with those component. Lose power cable :D a bit funny and good that nothing more serious ;) 

    Smart Pro RGB would be border line but could be if system would not be OCed and pushed to the limits. That's why at first i wrote that ony DPS G is suitable from "Smart" Thermaltakes.

    I’ve tested them together with memtest 86 and no errors

    all 3 ram "combos" ?

    I have keyboard mouse mousepad headset that’s it

    and all of that always attached to system ? 

    ditch mousepad and headset for start and test later if you can use different keyboard / mouse



    make sure that all power cables from PSU are connected all the way into mobo in both placed, gpu etc - different  topic someone just found that he didn't have one cable plugged all the way :)
