  1. Actually, I think I just figured out the problem. I was troubleshooting and removing different parts and seeing if it would power up. I took out my graphics card, and the computer booted just fine. I put it back in, and the same problem happened again. Now I just need to figure out if the issue is the graphics card itself, the GPU slot on my motherboard, or the power cord.
  2. Well I tried doing that and didn't have any luck. For whatever reason, my motherboard has a CMOS clear jumper, but doesn't come with the cap you need to short the jumper. I had to remove the battery instead. I kept it out for around 10 minutes, and even tested the voltage to make sure it wasn't dead. After turning back on the PSU, I'm still having the same result. One thing that's interesting that I hadn't noticed before is that when I press the power button, everything lights up for about half a second, but then the lights cut off and my fan lights start flashing red. I have no idea what caused this or what any of it means. Should I try taking out the CMOS battery for more than 10 minutes, or is there something else I should do?
  3. I am having a rather unusual problem with my new PC build. I have been using the PC perfectly fine for almost a month now. I had some blue screen issues for the first week, but I got them figured out and it's been working fine since, at least until now. I had been playing a game for maybe 5-10 minutes (one that I've played for over an hour at a time with no problems) when my PC randomly crashed. No blue screen, and I don't think it overheated since I hadn't been playing long. It just died. It was as if all power got cut off for a second. Now, when I turn the power supply on, the lights on my motherboard (an Asrock B450 Steel Legend) and my RAM flicker every 2-3 seconds, as if it is trying to turn on, but crashing instantly. Additionally, when I press the power button, nothing happens. The thing that's odd about the motherboard lights turning on is that I don't even have them set to stay on when the PC is off. I recently disabled the RAM and motherboard lights so they wouldn't stay on when the PC was shut down because it annoyed me having them on. Should I try clearing my CMOS and see if that fixes the issue? I really don't know exactly what caused this, or how I can fix it. Any help that could be given would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Thanks for the tip. I didn't realize that this was the case. I have removed it from my post to avoid messing anyone up. I just wanted to get the advice about increasing voltage out there since it took me a week of browsing forums and articles before I found someone who suggested doing that. My problem would have been fixed much faster if more people had suggested it to fix the bsods I was getting.
  5. For those having constant BSODs using an AsRock motherboard with Crucial Ballistix RAM, I have found a fix that not many people have suggested, and I want to make it more known. If I had known to do this earlier, it would have saved me from a week of troubleshooting and trying to fix blue screens. My build uses an AsRock B450 Steel Legend and Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB 3200 MHz RAM, but this fix may also apply to other AsRock motherboards and Crucial RAM. Here is a list of the blue screens I was getting (if they do not match what you are getting then this fix probably won't work): memory_management system_service_exception irql_not_less_or_equal pfn_list_corrupt Here are the steps I took to fix this issue: Run the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool. I just did a single pass basic test. If you get an error, you probably have the same problem as me. If not, it's probably because of something else. (Optional) Replace your RAM. It may be because of faulty RAM. However, this may not be the issue, and isn't what fixed the problem for me. I actually did replace my RAM, and was still getting errors when running the Diagnostic Tool. Go into motherboard BIOS and make sure your motherboard is running the RAM at a high enough voltage. My motherboard was only supplying 1.2 V, and my RAM needed 1.35 V. Run the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool again. If you got an error before, but don't get one now, the problem should be fixed. After doing steps four and five, I haven't had any blue screens for over two weeks. If those steps didn't fix the blue screens, and you are still getting errors when running the Memory Diagnostic Tool, you probably just have faulty RAM and should get it replaced. Hopefully this helped fix the issue for you as well though.
  6. Well that stinks. I knew that the RAM wasn't compatible with polychrome sync, but I thought I would still be able to change the RGB through crucial's MOD app. Guess I should have gone with the RAM I was going to get instead of jumping on this when it went on sale...
  7. I just built my first PC today, and I am having an issue controlling the RGB on the ram. The RGB control in the ballistix MOD app does not change the RGB on the ram. It is currently stuck doing a color cycle pattern that is very annoying. I really want to set the RAM RGB to match with everything else, but seem to be unable to. Could it have anything to do with my motherboard? I am using an Asrock B450 Steel Legend. Any help that could be given would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Okay. Thanks for the help! I'll look into those other mobos, but it's good to know that I'm not losing much with the 2700x in case the price is an issue with a newer mobo. Sorry for the late reply! I thought it would email me when someone responded to this, but apparently not.
  9. I'm working on building my first PC, and I'm trying to figure out what the best mobo to get would be. I'm planning on getting a Ryzen 5 3600. I was going to get an MSI B450 Tomahawk as my mobo, but I recently found out that I would have to do a BIOS update to get it to work with the CPU I want, and I don't want to get an older CPU to make it work. Based on this, I seem to have three options: Use the BIOS flashback feature on the MSI B450 to update the BIOS without a CPU. I'm not sure how safe this is or if it will work. Does anyone else have experience doing this, and am I at risk of bricking my mobo if I do something wrong? Get a newer mobo with third gen ryzen support. I would prefer not to have to do this since I will probably have to sacrifice from my peripherals budget in order to do this. If I had to though, I would prefer the mobo be no more than $150-200 if anyone could recommend a good one. Get a second gen CPU like the Ryzen 7 2700x. Would I be sacrificing too much performance if I did this though? If anyone can give any recommendations as to which method would be the best, I would really appreciate it. Also, if any more information is needed to determine what I should do about this, just let me know.
