    possibly, the picture that is shown doesn't tell exactly what the type of blockage really is. Do you have a tool small enough to move the plastic?

    Probably a needle

    doesn't look so bad, from the photo

    I mean, I didn't get the screwdriver anywhere inside the contact, so, it's ok I guess? Should I remove the plastic that got on the contact before putting the RAM stick inside? 


  3. Hello everyone. I was replacing thermal paste on my CPU yesterday, and the screwdriver slipped and scratched some plastic off one of the DIMM slots. I was thinking about adding more RAM to my PC, and now I'm a little bit concerned. Is it really that bad as I think it is?

  4. So, i recently got this new LCD BenQ monitor. (Model name is in the title) I waited for it to heat up from the cold, and then i finally turned it on. I played a few games for about 20-30 minutes, and then, suddenly, this annoying blue line appeared. I haven't done any damage nor have i spilled anything on the monitor. What could be an easy fix to this problem? (All of the service centres are closed atm because of the coronavirus, so I won't be able to bring it to them for about 2 weeks..)

  5. I tried reviving my BIOS using a programmer. My mobo is ASUS HERO XI (Wi-Fi). It failed to boot after one of the updates, and now I can't get anywhere in my PC, it just won't output anything. I have a very weird BIOS chip. (I attached a photo), and it can't be recognized by any of BIOS programming programs. I use a clip to connect to the chip itself, but I still can't program anything on it.  My Q-code panel says "0F" (Microcode not loaded) if that'll help. Also, asus flashback doesnt work too.

    Really all you have to do is pull the CPU cooler, clean the thermal paste off the CPU and the heatink (easier to clean the CPU while its still in the mobo, so just do it then), pull CPU out, put new CPU in, add thermal paste, remount CPU cooler, boot PC. When it boots, the mobo will likely throw a "New CPU detected, F12 to enter BIOS". Just enter BIOS, then you can exit the BIOS (you shouldn't need to adjust any settings), and it'll work!

     

    Then do all that again to put the original back in.

     

    Just to make sure, you are planning to put a CPU that works in, right? What CPU do you have now and what do you plan to swap in?

    Here is a link to my motherboards cpu list: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-MAXIMUS-XI-HERO/HelpDesk_CPU/ Right now my motherboard's BIOS version is 602, and 9900k started working on it only since the 1005 came out lol

    Yeah, i have a mobo that has an outdated bios, (dont ask me how it got outdated) therefore it doesnt have microcode for my 9900K. I have Celeron G4900 which my motherboard supports, and im gonna swap my 9900k to boot into my pc and then update my bios so i can run my 9900k again.

    Purchase a cheap low end chip supported by the Motherboard at lower bios revisions. Look at the list. 

    That's the only way you might post that board without going through all the updating troubles.

    I have a very stupid idea: i want to buy a cpu that's supported by the bios that i installed (example: Celeron G4900), replace my 9900k, and then upgrade my bios back to it's newer version. Will this work?

    If you meant the Maximus XI Hero, it does have BIOS Flashback so you can indeed use that.

     

    You have to make sure the BIOS file you want to use is on the root of the usb flash drive, with the correct file name and the drive has to be FAT32, not NTFS, exFAT or anything other than FAT32.

    Yeah, the problem is, the button that I'm supposed to hold for 3 secs and then wait for it to finish updating, goes solid after 5 seconds... Any solution to that? I tried 4 different USBs, non of them worked.

    OK here you go.

    This is the manual. Page 80 describes how to recover th bios from the disk.

     

    https://images-eu.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/C1spIFYcHzS.pdf

     

    Since the cpu may not be supported by the disk, you will find instructions on how to update the bios from the recovery bios. 

    I suggest you DL the bios file that supports the chip first 1005. Then update to current supported version for updates to stability cpu support mem support and so forth.

     

    (Now I don't know for sure that your bios is bricked, but by the way you describe it, it is.)

    Bios updating takes time. Let the system do it's thing. If after 15 minutes of nothing, power off. Clear the cmos via jumper or button on the back for 10 seconds. If you count fast, count 20 seconds. Then try the bios update or flash back/recovery again.

    During updating, If ever prompted to clear cmos, do so.

    Whenever i try doing a flashback, the button's light blinks for 5 seconds, and then goes solid again. I've done every step from the guide you linked, and i dont think that i cant enter the crashfree bios because my motherboard's bios doesnt support my cpu...
