    Ryzen 2700X, Asus Crosshair VI Hero build post issues

    Thank you for getting back to me. Installing nvidia drivers will not do anything for me as I own a Vega64. It’s also not a GPU / driver issue from what I can tell as memtest86 crashed the same way (sans colored screen) after trying to boot it during POST.
  2. Dear LTT forums, I am turning to you because I haven’t exactly found any solution to my problem online. I have a relatively decent build with a very strange issue. I’m running an Asus Crosshair VI Hero Wifi board with a Ryzen 2700X, two sticks of 16 gig G Skill 3200mhz 14-14-14-34 ram, an Asus Vega64 and a 250 gig Samsung m.2 nVME ssd. Now this set-up has been more than wonderful for the most part, however ever since Sekiro came out I’ve discovered a pretty serious issue. Towards the end of the game inevitably around the same part my system would hang, throwing up a colored screen and then promply turning off. When I try and turn it on I either a) no video output or b) I get past the ROG logo, wherein a stretched American Megatrends logo appears without any prompt or other text related to bootup. I don’t remember off the top of my head what diagnostic code the motherboard throws, however I know that it’s not in the manual and it’s not an error code, it’s simply supposed to be a bootup step to be passed. I’m running the latest drivers and BIOS and Windows Update. It’s not necessarily a gaming-related issue but Sekiro’s been the one use case to reliably reproduce this issue. The only solution to passing this screen and ending up with a working computer seems to be to remove all USB devices, press the CMOS Reset button and then plug them all back in. It’s not related to overheating as I have an NH15D keeping the CPU under control while the GPU doesn’t seem to have any issues with heat either. I’ve left a game like Dark Souls 3 to idle for a few hour without any stability issues (thinking that being a predecessor it’s pretty close engine-wise). Windows also idles without issues for days when I normally use this computer as a network storage. I’ve just encountered this issue again while trying to boot memtest86 to try and figure out if it’s a ram issue or not. Under windows 10 everything works perfectly, even a Prime95 and Furmark combination runs perfectly fine for hours. I tried disabling XMP, with the ram running at 2100mhz the same thing happens so it doesn’t seem to be related to any Ryzen platform stability so far. Tried various slots on the motherboard and a combination of either and both sticks. I’m currently booted into memtest86 and running the test to see if I can gleam any useful information out of this. Please tell me that there’s still something to do that I haven’t thought of to figure this out because I’m pretty close to just returning the components and going with an iMac for a desktop just to rid myself of having to deal with this forever. Thank you and I’m in your debt!

    Unable to boot Windows 10 on newly-built Ryzen PC

    Thank you for the replies, I got a consumer version ISO from my MSDN account, created a bootable USB off that. set NVMe raid to on and SATA raid to on and then loaded the SATA RAID version of the drivers from AMD's site during install. That seems to have done it. Seems like a newer version of windows + turning both raids on has done the trick! I struggled with this for hours, you can't believe how relieved I am now.
  4. Hey peeps, I am in a bit of a pickle and I need some help. I built a Ryzen 2700X-based system today, relevant specs as follows: ASUS Crosshair VI Hero Wifi motherboard 3x Intel Sata SSDs 5x WD hdds 1x Samsung Evo 970 m.2 ssd The bios has been updated to the latest version. I had a struggle trying to get Windows 10 to boot on this thing. I first switched it to raid mode and added the 3 Intel drives to a Raid 0 array. I was able to install Windows 10 on the m.2 drive then but only because it didn't have raid drivers so it refused to recognise any of my sata drives. I saw that I have to reinstall Windows so I got a copy of the driver on the USB drive and promptly loaded them and reinstalled Windows. On first boot it bluescreened with INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. I tried a combination of the drivers from the AMD site, from the Asus site. Neither of them worked. Afterwards I decided to try booting it in AHCI mode and maybe use Windows Storage Spaces for the same effect. I set it to AHCI mode, reinstalled Windows and I get the same result: bluescreen complaining about the boot device I tried turning the CSM to off and installing Windows that way in AHCI mode. No success. Please offer me advice as I don't know what to do. Right now I'm sitting on a $3000 brick that has pretty rgb lights.

    LG PF1000U Ultra Short Throw Projector Giveaway

    Oooh, this thing is so awesome. I've been using a half-dead projector from 2003 that I got for around 10 bucks 2 years ago, man, this'd kick some major butt in my setup!

    Oculus Rift Consumer Version 1

    I wanted to order a Rift, but I live in Romania (still in the EU, mind you). So I went to their site, clicked order and saw that my country was not listed. Why would it be? It would be the same amount of effort to ship here as Germany, but who needs that? So that's been the case since March. (actually, scratch that, I've been wanting to get a preorder! which was impossible too, so I missed out on that too) Another interesting tidbit is that the Rift costs $599, but as soon as you select an EU country, it instantly jumps up to 699 EUR. Wat. On the other hand HTC isn't better off either, their product is not available either. A month ago, approximately, you could select 'Other Country' on their order page - I could select mine - but it just jumped over to the Romanian HTC Vive page and clicking the order button just redirected to the bogstandard order page (the same page I was coming from!). So the situation is not that much better either --- well other than the consumer friendliness: HTC doesn't seem to be wanting to keep screwing their consumers over, which oculus would love to do all day, all night. I'm highly disappointed. A few weeks ago I read an interview with a woman from Oculus PR (since any leadership was otherwise occupied at the trade event) and when called out on their shit and asked about it, she had no answers other than a cringeworthy "I don't know" or "not my responsibility, ask someone else". It seems that by starting a new generation of gaming, we didn't start with a clear slate at all, we instantly jumped to all of these companies being EA/Ubisoft/Activision/Microsoft-level jerks to their customers, instead of trying to endear themselves to them. Shame.
