  1. I've tried three different drives in it. They all work in other computer and not work in it. And I don't think it's an over heating problem because once I'm in the OS I can run stress tests all day long and it doesn't care.
  2. First, it's Windows 10. Second, the windows logo will come up, the circles will come up, do about half a spin and then the computer compelete loses power.
  3. I have been fixing computers for a long time and I have come across some really strange issues, but this one has me stumped. I have a laptop that will not boot into windows from a cold boot. I have reinstalled windows and I have the same problem. Wakes up from sleep fine, restarts just fine, but if you try to start it up, it's a no go. As a way for me to get into the OS I figured out that if it's off, I can boot a the windows OS flash drive I have, then cancel the setup. This makes the laptop restart and boot into windows just fine. Any ideas?
  4. But both drives work just fine with DVDs in other computers, it's just the file server that they don't work with.
  5. Yep, everything is good in the device manager, OS is up to date, media player software is up to date.
  6. One is an external usb 2.0 and one is an internal SATA.
  7. Shows up in file explorer for both of the drives, but if I go to play the DVD on anything other than VLC it will say the disc is empty and VLC says your input can't be opened.
  8. I have my main gaming rig, that works just fine, and I have a server that I put together from some used parts from a bunch of different old computers, which doesn't work quite right. One of the things I've done with the file server is I hooked it up to my TV, mainly to watch movies. The problem is that it won't read DVDs. I have tried two separate DVD drives that both work on other machines with about half a dozen DVD that all work on other computers. Here are the specs on the file server: Core 2 Quad 6600 4GB DDR2 ASUS 2A73H GTS 250 160GB Hitachi 1TB WD Red The two disc drives that I've tried are an HP OEM drive and a slim ASUS external drive. Any help would be appreciated, I ran out of ideas about an hour ago and I just want to get this working.
  9. I would say networking is my one big, horrible, glaring weakness right now. So anything having to do with networking would be good.
  10. I already have a job in IT and I'm currently working towards an AS degree focusing on computer science. I was curious about what certifications you guys recommend. I not looking for the ones that employers look for, because I already have a job, I'm looking for the ones that I will learn the most from.
  11. The problem is, it can keep it at 72C if I have all of the fans turned to max and the to panel off of my case, without that, my CPU gets up to the 80's. I've taken off and put the cooler back on at least 3 times, and I've had a different cooler on it with the same problem. Mines clocked at 4GHz and its under volted, with the fans running at 100%, only then can I keep it to 72C. Did you even read my post? I never said it heated to only 69C. Also, with the cooler and fans set to "performance" in the corsair link software, and my case fully assembled, I've seen it hit 94C, and it throttles to 3GHz.
  12. I have had problems with my 4790k since I got it, a year and a half ago. It has always run a little hot, but I figured I just got unlucky. It was a little disappointing, but I would be fine. Until a few months ago, I just dealt with it. I had an H100i and it was in a mITX case, so the temps weren't great. It would idle in the 40's and during a stress test would get into the 70's. Then my SO wanted a PC so I gave her some parts including my cooler and I got a H100i GTX. For some reason, it got worse temps by about 10C. I reseated my CPU, reseated the cooler, applied new thermal paste, the whole 9 yards. But nothing worked. So I RMAed my CPU and Intel sent me a new one. At first it seemed to fix the problem a little, but I was still underwhelmed. It was pretty much just back to the temps I was getting with the H100i. At the time, I was busy with work and school and I decided I would deal with it later. Well, later is now. I did a bunch of testing, I removed everything that could possible obstruct airflow, including the front and top panels. Turned all of the fans up to 100%, under volted it and ran some tests. Lowest I could get it was 40C at idle and 72C with a stress test and that's with .2V less than stock. I'm running out of ideas, I contacted ASUS about something that could potentially be wrong with the motherboard, but they haven't got back to me yet. And I've contacted a friend that also has a 4790k to see if we could switch CPUs and run some tests to see if his CPU heats up as much as mine in my system. Although, I think I would have to be the unluckiest person on earth to get 2 CPUs that overheat in a row. Any suggestions would be great. EDIT: I noticed that when I stop running a step test, the temps immediately (within a second) drop back to almost idle temps and then they slow go down from there, and as soon as I start the stress test it jumps up to about 68C and then climbs. Also, I have used OCCT, Cinebench, Intel Extreme Tuner and Prime95 (old version) for my stress testing.
  13. I have 200mm fan in the front of my case, and the H100i GTX in the top, there's no cables in the way of the airflow and will all of the fans at max, and with the vcore at 1.1V, and with my ram set back to default I was able to keep it under 75C.
  14. It's not the cooler, I tried it on another computer and it worked fine. I've already done is twice and I moved it to a different computer and it works fine on it. CPU-Z says 1.202V under 100% load. Idle fluctuates a lot between 35C-40C.
  15. Ambient is around 25C, CPU is at 4.4GHz and voltage is 1.2V. The pump is running and the fans are spinning. Vcore under load is 1.2V, and it is on performance mode.
