  1. My PC will boot up, but my monitor will say "no signal detected". I do not believe that my GPU is dead, the cooler spins up just fine on it, and it gets warm. I have tried plugging the DVI cable directly into the motherboard to see if the BIOS had been altered but no such luck, it still said "no signal detected" which leads be to believe it hadn't. It was working completely fine, I opened up my PC (something that I do fairly often) to put in my new CPU cooler. When I tried to boot up again I ran into this issue. Please help

  3. Im pretty have all of the proper connectors in the right places but my PC will not power on. The solid green LED on the motherboard comes on but when I press the power button nothing happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Radeon R9 270X or 280?

    If you can definitely go for the 280 as it is the better card, however the 270x will definitely still run games.
  5. Not bad, but definitely add something to the middle. It looks a little bit bland in the red area

    Laptop not booting up

    So my moms dell laptop isn't working properly. Whenever you press the power button the power indicator lights up (and stays lit up, like it should). The hard drive light turns on for about 10 seconds and turns off. Meanwhile nothing is happening on the screen, it remains completely black. I have tried replacing the hard drive with one that I believe to be working, to see if her hard drive was the issue, but the issue remains. I have no idea what is wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    GPU for Linux PC

    So I'm in the market for a new GPU for my Linux build and I need some assistance. I have received opportunities to purchase an R9 290 for as low as $280, and an R9 280X for even lower. I would love to seize these opportunities, however I have heard very bad things throughout the web about AMD drivers with Linux, even going as far as to say that they severely diminish the overall performance. My question is, should I get the AMD card for the awesome price? or is it not worth it and I should shoot for an Nvidia card at a similar price? Thanks.

    GPU for Linux PC

    How much lower? Would it still be acceptable on Bioshock 2 for example @ 1920x1080? (using WINE)

    GPU for Linux PC

    I would like to do some real gaming on it as well though. Linux game support seems to be growing thankfully and I could also use WINE for some games.

    PC wont power on. Help

    Sorry, I did not know where to post this topic. Soo I just got done upgrading a few parts in my PC (new mobo, new CPU, new PSU). I've just constructed it and it will not power on. I read in the instruction manual where the power switch plugin is on the motherboard, so I know its in the right spot. The power switch on my PSU is on too. Motherboard/CPU power is fully in, PSU plugged in. Could somebody please help?

    Will do, but I got it to work. I just hooked everything back up when I came home today and it happened to work. Thanks for your help though

    PC wont power on. Help

    I did do that, when I took it out it worked. When I put it back in, nothin. Like I said the power cable from the case works because it worked when I plugged it into the motherboard when built outside of the case. How can I stop this shortage so that I can build my PC inside of the case.

    PC wont power on. Help

    It does not power on. It cant be my PSU either because I jumpstarted it and it worked fine. Plus when I built it outside of the case not only did the screwdriver trick work, but it also worked when I plugged the cable for the power button into it too (when built outside the case). It only seems to not work when it is built IN the case, this other guy thinks something is shorting my motherboard.

    PC wont power on. Help

    Currently I am temporarily using the Raidmax Super Hurricane (cheap little thing I will be using until next month when I will be buying a Define R4 along with a new GPU and possibly an SSD)

    PC wont power on. Help

    It isn't powering up from the screwdriver trick when in the case. So I'm assuming its shorting out on something (like you said), what do you propose I do about that?

    PC wont power on. Help

    Yeah that works. Hell, it even worked when I used the cases power cable attached to it outside of the case. Then I tried rebuilding it in the case, and it wouldnt power up. I dont get it, the cases power button worked when I connected it to the mb when built OUTSIDE the case, whats the difference inside?

    PC wont power on. Help

    I jumpstarted my PSU with a paperclip and the fan spun up, which leads me to believe that the PSU is not the issue. What do you think I should do now?
