  1. Sudden PC freezes @ BIOS

    disconnecting the drives and booting with a bare minimum did nothing. The only thing that "changed" is the fact that the screen goes black after a minute or so after showing me a splash screen.
  2. Sudden PC freezes @ BIOS

    Quick update, since I was moving to new apartment and didn't have much time to work on my PC - whenever the PC is turned off and I switch off the PSU, then turn it back on and turn the PC on, it turns off on it's own and turns back on and hangs on BIOS screen again.
  3. Sudden PC freezes @ BIOS

    Well, the mobo does have a dual bios...
  4. Sudden PC freezes @ BIOS

    Just hangs on splash screen forever.
  5. Sudden PC freezes @ BIOS

    As I wrote before, I don't have any other parts to test them. The CPU is being OCed by default by this motherboard and being cooled by the part listed in my signature.
  6. Sudden PC freezes @ BIOS

    Hi everyone, I need help - I'm losing my mind about it. I have my beloved PC Steambox (all parts in my signature) and it started causing me problems since yesterday. I left the PC powered on to finish downloading some important data for my work and it restarted on it's own. I shut it down and restarted it again and the problem is that it gets stuck on BIOS screen - the only thing I see is the Gigabyte screen. Keyboard is not responding. What I tried to do so far: I reseated the RAM, I tried each stick at the time, reseated the battery - no change. I need his PC up and running ASAP, since I need it to work... Unfortunately, I don't have any spare parts to test my PC and I don't have any cash for replacement parts...
  7. Freshly built PC stopped posting

    Well, problem "solved" - the issue has been found, at least. Quick glance at the motherboard's manual showed me that there are supposed to be two led lights on the mobo. None of them were lit and that indicates the problem with CPU or the chipset. I checked the CPU on the other mobo and it was working fine, so I guess that this motherboard decided to finally give up on me. Case closed, gotta find a new one in my pile of parts if my friend is willing to pay a little more.
  8. Freshly built PC stopped posting

    Unfortunately, no change. I tried my RAM sticks in other motherboard and they are working just fine. I think it's a dead mobo/cpu, then.
  9. Freshly built PC stopped posting

    Well, if one of those components is dead then I'm cancelling the entire project, because the whole idea was to build this PC using the parts I had laying around.
  10. So I'm building a really cheap PC for my friend. It's supposed to be used in really basic stuff like web browsing or playing light games like LoL or Starcraft II, but not to be too sluggish. I gathered some parts I had laying around:- Biostar TP45D2-A7 Ver. 6.0 motherboard- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU- Tracer 4Life 450 Hellfire Silent 450W PSU- Gainward nVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti GPU- TP-Link wireless card- Seagate Barracuda 160GBAfter I put it together it posted well, speaker beeped, new CPU detected, etc. However, when I rebooted the system it just turned on, spun the fans, turned off and turned on again, with no video signal or speaker beep whatsoever and no more self reboots too. I have literally rebuilt the whole system and replaced the PSU to Cooler Master Thunderstrike 500W - no change.Now I'm lost - what could cause this problem? The PC behaves like this ever since and I don't know what to do, I was about to install Windows on it, update it and call it a day.
  11. Hi, So recently I switched from MSI H61m-P20 (G3) to the Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H rev. 1.1, mostly because it was on a sale. Everything has been hooked up and working perfectly, except for one of the fans. The case came with one 3pin fan and it is working as it should, the problem is with a 4pin fan which came with my aio CPU cooler, the Cooler Master Seidon 120 v2. The CPU block and the pump combo has been connected to the CPU header and I connected the 4pin fan to one of the 4pin headers on the motherboard. However, that 4pin fan doesn't spin faster when the CPU gets hotter - it only spins faster for a second when I boot up the system itself. It wasn't the case in my previous H61 board, the fan was working properly. I tried connecting it to different header, same result - the fan won't go faster than 900-ish RPM. Even changing the fan control to manual and setting 2.5 RPM more per Celcius degree didn't help. I did flash the BIOS, since the previous owner flashed it to the beta version and I thought that maybe this was the case, but no. No change whatsoever.
  12. Not my money, he wants a single PSU. Would 1300W suffice?
  13. Hi, so my coworker decided to build his mining rig by using 6 GTX 1060, specifically Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 XTREME 6GB GDDR5 192Bit PCI-E (GV-N1060AORUS X-6GD 2.0). I am wondering if a 1000W PSu will be enough to power up the whole rig. Can anyone help me with this?
  14. Wow, my countryman! Thanks for that advice, this actually might help me save up a ton of headaches. Well, I was going to buy off some of this stuff off of him in a year or two, but I see that this mobo is actually designed for mining. Awesome find, I can't believe I missed that.
  15. Well, that's not my call. Besides, one or two of those cards will go to me in 1-2 years (to still have warranty and stuff), so I wouldn't be so concerned about those "other people".
