  1. I hope I'm posting this in the right subforum, if not, I apologize. So basically, two days ago I shut down my PC as usual, and it went through the "Shutting down" screen, and the screen turned black afterwards. However, I noticed that the power light on my PC case/tower was still on, and thar the fans were still spinning. This never happened before, so I got worried. I tried to press the power button once shortly to see if it would shut down - it didn't, so I pressed the restart button on my case and it restarted and booted up normally. When I shut down the PC again, it shut down normally. I tried looking around on the internet to find what could've been the cause of this, but I couldn't find anything. Could it be that my HDD is failing? Some other part? Windows issue?
  2. Okay, so today I bought a Logitech F710 gamepad (wireless) and it came with a usb nanoreceiver. I tested it out and it works great, however I have a question. My pc keeps supplying power to the usb ports when it's shut down (I haven't found a way to disable this) and I want to know - should I leave my nanoreceiver plugged in when the computer's turned off? Could the constant power supplied by the usb ports damage the nanoreceiver in any way?
  3. Could there be any problems in the future if I left the gpu as it is? My temps are normal, there's no sound, only slight vibration.
  4. How am I supposed to check that?
  5. Okay, so I have a Zotac GTX 1050 ti OC edition. It has 2 fans. Today I noticed that the furthest right part of the graphichs card is shaking a bit (like a small vibration), in comparison to the left part which is perfectly still. I wiggled it around a bit to see if it would go away, tried to push it in a bit, but it's properly seated. There's no unusual rattling sound (although, while I was pushing it, the right fan did make a sort of a rattling sound in some positions, however it doesn't when I don't touch the gpu). Is this normal?
  6. Okay, so, I'm a bit surprised and frightened atm. Basically, what happened is that I put my pc to sleep mode and after a while I forgot it's in sleep mode and shut off the PSU and unplugged it. I did some rearranging of cables inside my case and i unplugged and plugged in again a fan. At this point, it hit me - my pc was in sleep mode, it wasn't completely shutdown before I unplugged it. I plugged it back in (keep in mind it had been off for a good 15-20 mins) and turned it on. The bootup process went unusually slow, and then, I logged in, and all my open programs were still there. So, now I ask the questions: 1. Is this normal? 2. Could I have damaged something? 3. What should I do next?
  7. I'm using the stock Intel cooler, not sure if the metal part plays any role regarding it.
  8. Okay, so what happened is that my PC was running and I wanted to check something on the back of my motherboard with a magnifying glass (made of metal). I accidentally touched the metal part on the back that is behind the processor. This is the part I touched (not my mobo on the picture, only there for reference): Nothing happened, the pc is working fine. Is it possible I damaged something?
  9. The title is pretty self explanatory, it's kind of a weird, perhaps dumb question. So basically, I have a GTX 1050ti and I currently have a 1280x1024 monitor. I want to check how my GPU would work on Full HD resolution, so, if I set the resolution to 1920x1080, even though it doesn't show up properly on my 1280x1024 monitor, is my graphics card working as if it would work on a Full HD monitor? Am I getting the FPS I'd get on a Full HD monitor with Full HD resolution, even though it's a 1280x1024 monitor?
  10. Okay, so basically, my PC was on and I (being the idiot I am) wanted to remove a metal panel above the back side of the GPU (the thing you pop out when you put in a GPU, a PCI express card etc) without turning the PC off first. What happened is that the metal panel thingy touched the top of my GPU (which doesn't have any protection - it's a Zotac GTX 1050 ti OC edition) while it was running. Nothing happened, I felt nothing and nothing changed on the screen, the GPU fans kept spinning etc. The GPU is working fine. I wanna know if it's possible I damaged something in any way, I'm especially afraid of some damage that doesn't show up now, but might show up later down the road. Thanks!
  11. So the Corsair CX450 is definitely a good choice? Any difference between the CX450 and CX450M, except from the latter being modular?
  12. Okay, I'll wait to see some more suggestions. Thanks for all the input so far!
  13. So you think 450 watts is enough for this build? (+ full HD monitor)
  14. Alright, so, here's the deal. I recently built a rig with a LC power 600w v2.31 power supply. Yesterday, I noticed a very high pitched sound coming from the supply when the PC is off and the PSU is plugged in and turned on. Read online that it could be a sign of its lifespan ending (it was bought a bit more than a month ago -.-) or coil whine. Either way, I plan to return it and get a better one, but preferably for a similar amount of money. My rig is: Gigabyte GA B250 - HD3P motherboard Intel i5 7400 3.00GHz CPU Zotac GTX 1050 ti 4 GB OC edition GPU 8 gigs of Kingston Fury HyperX DDR4 2400MHz RAM 1 TB WD Purple 7200 RPM 64MB HDD I plan on adding an optical drive and a wifi card some time soon. The question is, what power supply do you recommend priced at around 40-50 euros (which I know isn't a lot, but I can't go any higher)? Thanks!
