  1. Issue: After a few months of not using it, I decided to clean my PC. After re-assembling it, the case fans were spinning but there was no display. I re-seated the video card and checked the cables. The fans no longer spin, but the led on the motherboard is on. I double checked the cables, tested with a different PSU, but the issue persists. My guess is that my motherboard broke. Questions: I don't have any known good parts (aside from the PSU), is there anything I can test/check? If it really is broken, I will need to replace my CPU, mobo, and RAM. I am using a i5-4590 and shops here no longer sell stuff from that gen. What is the cheapest equivalent (or hopefully a bit better) cpu, mobo, and ram do you suggest? My budget is around 250-270 usd. I might get a 2gb ram stick for now, then add more when I can.
  2. Additional detail: GPU memory Errors increase whenever I start a game. Fired up XCOM and in the main menu it's increasing at around 1-3 errors per second. In the picture above it shows 9.5 billion errors. Valley benchmark did not cause the errors to increase. It does, just at a slower rate.
  3. Issue: When playing games, it will crash to a black screen and will require a force-shutdown the PC just to be responsive again. Alt+Tab, Alt+F4, and Ctrl+Alt+del does not work. Initially I thought this might be an issue related with GPU temps. So I enabled MSI afterburner's OSD and true enough, it reaches up to 90c even at 100% fan speed. I replaced the thermal paste on my GPU (old paste was dried up), but reused the thermal pads because I do not have any replacement on hand (more on this later). I did a few tests and the max temperature it got was around 70c. After playing for a while I still encountered the issue even at less than 60c. I thought maybe reusing the thermal pads caused the VRMs to overheat or something so I connected a monitor to my motherboard and had it display hwinfo while I played. Issue occurred while playing This war of mine and even my second monitor froze. From what my noob eyes see the temperatures seem to be fine. Below are the GPU temps from hwinfo: I'm not sure if this is even an issue with my GPU. Any ideas on what's causing this?
  4. Updated everything, ran Valley Benchmark for 20 mins, Metro Redux benchmark, and Witcher 3, no issues whatsoever. Ran NMS for 5 minutes, issue occurs. Apparently I'm not the only one. I saw some posts on steam back in 2016:Post 1, Post 2. Granted mine was more severe. I saw a comment suggesting to disable steam overlay and another suggesting to set Texture to medium. Did both and ran the game for over an hour. No issues so far. Really hope this is just a bug in the game. Thanks for the suggestions!
  5. I'm running stock settings though.
  6. I'm trying to tweak the settings of No Man's sky and I noticed that there are some artifacting on my screen. These artifacts only show up when I play NMS, and persists even after I quit the game. After restarting the PC, the screen is clear again. What I found odd is that when I open the settings menu in-game (pressing esc), these artifacts become blurred (the white dot in the image), as if they are part of the game. But if I take a screenshot, the artifacts appear. Note that I do not see these in game. I only see the white dots 'behind' the menu. I tried restarting the PC, then running around in Witcher 3 for a few minutes, and the artifacts did not appear. Any ideas?
  7. At the moment I can't think of possible reasons as to why your styles are not being applied. What I suggest you do is Inspect the h5 element to see what style is being used. See screenshot: The style highlighted with yellow is being overridden by the one underlined with red. This might help you pinpoint what the problem is.
  8. According to your post, this is what you used: .test{ color=white; } The "=" should be replaced with ":" otherwise it will not work. Anyway I did not notice that the last example in your post uses the colon.
  9. Use a colon in the css style: color:white; Edit: Move along, reading post again.
  10. R9 390 here. Ultra until the fps gets noticeably choppy. Then I'll lower the settings starting with the ones that are "not noticeable".
  11. I'm planning to buy a new TV for my parents. Thing is, I'm not really interested in TV tech/trends till now so I don't have much idea on what I should look for. My budget is around 500-600 USD (converted from local currency). Any suggestions?
  12. I believe it is better than both SP and AF fans (better static pressure and CFM).
  13. I'm playing witcher 3, ultra with no hairworks, on 8Gbs of RAM no problem. IIRC you can use MSI afterburner to monitor RAM usage.
  14. Thanks ! I'll visit this when I get home.
  15. I'll try PCSX2 thanks for reminding me. Definitely checking out Horizon Zero dawn and Days gone. I don't want to get multiple consoles though so I'll probably wait a bit if the Playstation now improves.
