  1. Hi My PC is logging into a black screen after the latest updates. I type in my password on the windows login, it takes an unusually long time, and then the screen just stays black forever. I can open the task manager, but not much else. Trying to force explorer to start won’t work thoughts? EDIT: So, turns out it is not fixed at all. Still booting into a black screen unless I start it in safe mode EDIT 2: The machine will consistently start if I disable the startup items in msconfig

    DisplayPorts ceasing to function sequentially?

    I got the cable from a store deemed reputable here in Portugal, and I've had no issues with this cable until now, and I've been using it for almost a year. It is, however, a DP to miniDP cable, as mentioned on the topic you posted, which worries me somewhat. Unfortunately, I have no other DP devices I can use to test if I fried something or not. And what I meant was that the display won't show up on the nVidia control panel, unless it's plugged into this last, and currently, only working, DP.
  3. Hi, I am having a really strange issue whose cause I am absolutely clueless about. I currently have a Cintiq display connected over DisplayPort to my GTX1070. A couple of days ago, I randomly got a "No Signal" on it, and even after unplugging it and plugging it back in, it still wouldn't come back online. I swapped to the second DP port, and it turned back on again, but the port it was originally connected to still won't detect it. Now, the second port is behaving the same way, and I am down to my last port, and neither of the other two show any sign of working. The tablet won't even get picked up on the nVidia control panel when plugged into one of the first two ports. Thoughts? Thanks

    Windows 10 won't activate following motherboard swap

    Guess I am calling MS then. Thanks, everyone

    Windows 10 won't activate following motherboard swap

    My licenses are retail, not OEM. The issue here is something within windows itself, not with the keys I tried that, and it still failed upon activation. I have the creators update as well.

    Windows 10 won't activate following motherboard swap

    Yes, I am on that machine at this very moment
  8. Hi, So, my motherboard failed and I had to swap it out. Upon returning to windows, I get the dreaded "Activate windows" on the bottom right corner of my screen. Things I have tried so far: Using the troubleshooter's "I recently changed hardware on this device option" Removing my previous machine from my Microsoft account Removing and inserting my key via the command line Trying another, unused retail W10 Pro key, and it still won't activate. As of right now, this is what I see. , Thoughts?
  9. Yes, I am currently in manual voltage mode. I can't shut LLC off completely in this board, I am limited to a minimum of 25% for some reason.
  10. So the experiment didn't work. Regardless of anything, the CPU still overvolts. The only current "fix" is to simply set the target voltage to a lower value to compensate for that offset
  11. I just updated it, and tried with the secondary, un-updated bios again just as a sanity check. I will try clearing cmos and OCing again, I'll get back with some info soon. Thanks so far
  12. Nope, still overvolting, even if VID supp is disabled
  13. LLC doesn't seem to be influencing this, oddly. Whether it's 25 or 75%, the same effect persists.
  14. Hi I just changed motherboard, to an MSI X99A Carbon, and I am redoing the OC I had on my old board on my 6800K. For starters, I have set my Override voltage to 1,29v with a multiplier of 41x. At idle, the VID is 1,29v and the vcore is at its usual lower state, but as soon as I run prime, the voltage shoots past 1,29v and both VID and Vcore go up to 1,35v. What is determining this behavior, and how can I cap it to the override value in all circumstances? Thanks
  15. Hello So, my board randomly stopped POSTing for no apparent reason. It has had some quirks in the past, including similar post issues, but now it appears to be far more serious. Usually, the red CPU LED comes on and it just stays there forever. I’ve seen it turn off after a while sometimes, others the LED won’t come on but it won’t post anyway. And sometimes, very rarely, it will post normally. I highly suspect a mobo issue. I’ve tried pretty much everything short of a different cpu, which I don’t have on hand. Multiple CMOS clears, all combinations of ram sticks, no drives, different power supply and breadboarding have all been done. The bios was updated to the latest version a while back and it’s running a 6800K. Any thoughts? Thanks
