    PSU Failure

    I had an issue about a week ago where my pc turned off and restarted immediately with the asus surge protection message. I read online that it false triggers a lot and i have a good psu so i just disabled it. (corsair ax860) Today it just randomly shut off again without warning but i didn't get the surge protection message. I checked all of the connections and everything is fine. should i be worried about a failing psu?

    Two short beeps and no display pc error

    I would buy a cheap stick of used working dd4 memory on ebay or something to see if you get a post. A store might even let you borrow a stick if you bring the computer in. If you dont get it to post then you will probably have to buy a new motherboard as the 2 beeps means either a memory issue or a damaged cmos. Also if your mobo uses a jumper to clear the cmos make sure you put it back in the normal position. If it comes to replacing the motherboard, it looks like this is a standard micro atx board. Here is a cheap one I found on amazon. Keep in mind this is a us link https://www.amazon.com/GIGABYTE-B360M-DS3H-LGA1151-Motherboard/dp/B07BQ9SSH7/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1546110214&sr=8-3&keywords=micro%2Batx%2Bx299%2Bmotherboard&th=1 I would also recommend getting a used x99 micro atx board if you dont have much money to spend.

    I would try a different display and cable as well as replacing the cmos battery.

    You have your ram in slots 1 and 3 from the cpu. Make sure its slots 2 and 4. Otherwise it might not post. Also make sure the switch on the back of your psu is set to 220/240 volts as it looks like you're in europe.

    You have a 6700k which requires ddr4 memory. I'm out of ideas. can you give a pic with memory installed and everything hooked up?

    Try using another monitor/tv and/or cable as you said nothing was happening. Also, Have you by any chance taken the cpu out. If you did, make sure the triangles are aligned correctly .If that doesn't work. you may have bad ram, cpu or motherboard. Ask to borrow a dd4 stick of memory from a friend or get a cheap stick on ebay just for testing.

    Buying Pre-built rig

    If you know what a graphics card and a cpu is. You could do it easily. Anyone on the forum would be willing to answer any questions or offer advice. But if you must get a prebuilt here is a link to IBuyPower's i7 pc configurator https://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Intel-Z390-Core-i7-Plus-Configurator

    Buying Pre-built rig

    You should build yourself. Search up a tutorial. I promise you won't break anything.

    Idk what to try after this. maybe try taking the gpu out and seeing if it will still beep.If it doesnt beep, you have a bad gpu. also make sure you have your cpu fan plugged in and the cpu 4 or 8 pin power as well as gpu power. Also, if it was blue screening before, it could have been a corrupt installation of windows or your pc overheating. Since this issue started happening after you took everything apart because of the blue screen, you probably just didn't plug something in right, or not at all. blow out all the sockets you are plugging stuff into with compressed air or with your mouth. just try not to get spit on everything. You didn't happen to spill anything on the pc right?

    Try using them both in the second and fourth slots from the cpu. If that doesnt work, plug one stick into the first slot, then the second, and try using the other ram stick. With Acer I believe two short beeps is the code for memory or graphics errors.

    Unplug the m.2 ssd. It could be what's causing the problem. Probably not but it could be. Also make sure that you are plugging your ram into the correct spot. When you have two sticks, use slots 2 and 4.

    How To Install Old Crap :P

    Depending on how old the laptop is, it may use uefi boot. Try changing it to Legacy boot in the bios and male sure you're booting with Legacy support to the correct drive. Good luck!

    should i get optane

    Generally Hdds are fast enough for loading games but if you must have something faster, pick up the dirt cheap ssds on amazon. Optane is a waste of money for any application.

    1080p 21:9 capture card

    I started streaming on twitch recently and I play all my games at 3440x1440p. I stream at 2160x1080p. I need a capture card that can capture 2160x1080. Will a standard 1080p capture card do this, or do I need something special to do this. If so, I need a suggestion for under $125. Thanks for your help.
