  1. Turns out I had almost the exact same issue a year ago, where the PSU was the culprit - I’m going to try and replace the PSU and see what happens.
  2. I am experiencing the same issue. Try continually booting the system every 5 minutes for a total of 60 minutes and report back.
  3. Does anyone have any ideas? I’m about to order a new motherboard.
  4. As the thread has vanished down into the piles of other threads, and in an attempt to resolve this, I'd just like to say BUMP.
  5. Out of nowhere, my PC suddenly won't boot. Upon pressing the power button (or using a screwdriver), everything turns on for less than a second and then turns off immediately. Specifications CPU: Intel Core i5-7600k Motherboard: ASUS PRIME Z270-P (LGA1151) RAM: 2 x 8 GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 GFX: GTX 1050 TI PSU: TX550M Here's what we've tried: Swapping the PSU: No difference. Re-inserting RAM: No difference. Clearing CMOS: No difference. Removed GPU: No difference. Additional Info: If I remove the CPU power cable, the system boots up successfully and remains on, but won't POST obviously. If I insert the CPU in another PC, the other PC experiences the same symptoms as well. After enough attempts at starting the PC / waiting enough time, I am able to boot the computer fully and it will work, as if nothing was wrong, in the first place. The case is moist as I vape (yes, no jokes here please) A video has been attached of the issue PC Issue.mp4
  6. Thanks. I did not have BitLocker on the drive - and I have not overwritten the files. I tried EaseUS Data Recovery Software without any luck - and I would love some recommendations.
  7. LTT Community, Last night I updated my Windows 10 (build version 1709) to version 1809. After rebooting, I faced an issue and was forced to format my SSD and reinstall Windows. I forgot to backup the SSD because I thought that my important files were on the other HDD. I had some very important files on that SSD - and would like to know how I can recover those files. If I can't find a way to recover those files, I'm officially screwed.. If it helps - I reinstalled Windows in UEFI mode and the original Windows was installed in non-UEFI mode.
  8. I'm going to replace the PSU and RAM. I will let you know how it goes. Total costs so far: $540 (to replace motherboard and CPU)
  9. No idea what that is. I think it's caused by the dust collected along with regular smoking though.
  10. Hey guys, Yesterday when I was watching a YouTube video, my PC shut off completely all by itself. I attempted to power it back on and it wasn't working. I unplugged the power cable, reinserted it and tried to power the PC back on again. It turned on for less than a second and shut back down again. I tried powering it on again and nothing happened this time. Note: The PC was humid inside and there were wet spots on several different spots all over including the graphics card, CPU and top part of the tower inside. Not 100% sure but I think it's from the dust collected mixed with regular smoking. So far I have: - Replaced CPU - Replaced Motherboard - Took it all apart & put the parts back in - Tried leaving it for 24 hours - Cleaned RAM sticks and using either solo in PC - Only booting with PSU, motherboard and CPU It has the same problem with a different CPU & motherboard. Specs: - Corsair CX750M - Intel Core i5 7600k - Z270-P PRIME - NZXT S340 - GTX 1050 TI 6GB This problem occured after not cleaning my computer for at least 6 months. I think the power supply is broken, but I wanted to ask you guys first before purchasing a new one.
  11. Ever since I moved into my new apartment and changed ISP, I have been experiencing lag spikes that last about 1-2 seconds on my computer and TV. My ping spikes to upwards of 2000 ms and goes back to the regular ping after the 1-2 seconds. I am running on 5Ghz WiFi with a NetGear A6210 USB WiFi Adapter. My computer is 2.5-3m and a wall away from the router. I am using the Icotera IGW3000. This issue is not present when using a CAT5 cable. It is only present on the TV and with a wireless signal. Ping Results (Wireless): https://pastebin.com/CwmS3u8e Speedtests (Wireless): http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6428404214 http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6428407272 Speedtests (Wired): http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6439003434 http://beta.speedtest.net/result/6439005661 ISP: Stofa A/S It does also seem as if the ONT is defect. The lights on the ONT sometimes change to red or go out completely. I do not have this problem when using my mobile 4G connection on the computer. I tried calling the ISP, but they are not of much help. Is there anything I can do to resolve the bad spikes on the computer and the TV? I have an appointment with a technician from Stofa A/S to check out the issues on monday.
  12. Thanks for the insights. We have problems with the signal to the TV as well as the ONT or whatever is acting up. Would you be up for a chat in PM? Seems like you're very educated in this area. Just wanna make sure I should cancel the appointment.
  13. So there is no way for me to attach a router to my setup?
  14. A technician is coming on Monday. I'll keep you guys updated.
