Friends PC would have problems every few hours and has no output

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys. My friend was having some pc issues and came to me because I build a lot of pcs. I had no idea what his issue was and was wondering if any of you might. His build is a 9600k with a 2060, z390 gaming edge, and a 970 evo as his boot drive. His issue was that every two hours or so (not exactly ever two hours, but around that amount) his taskbar would show up in fullscreen games and the search bar would just be a white box. After around 5 mins, his pc would just get stuck and he would restart to fix it. His problems started to get worse, such as making beeping noises sometimes before having to restart. Today it got much worse and when he restarted his monitor would say no display port input. He also noted that his keyboard lights would stay on and his mouse lights would flash when he click left or right-click. What could be wrong?

I'm not an official engineer or anything, more of just an enthusiast so I can't be too sure about this. But if it's affecting all his components that badly, could be a bad driver on his Chipset, or perhaps his motherboard BIOS needs updating (flashing). Could be GPU drivers too, they tend to do wacky stuff when broken

Has the issue just recently popped up or has it been happening since the PC was bought/built?

 

Is the PC adequately cooled and what wattage PSU?

when its beeping, what is the pattern? that might be the speaker inside saying what the error is. that could pinpoint what is the first thing that is wrong. was it three equal short beeps? two long one short? ect.


Im with the mentaility of "IF IM NOT SURE IF ITS ENOUGH COOLING, GO OVERKILL"

 

PS: i cooled a Ryzen 5 3600(65W) with ID cooling SE207 (200W-250W tdp lol)

He has an 850w psu which is more than enough and his load temps were maxed at 80 C. He said its been happening since he built it

I'll ask him, but I'm not sure if it beeps still

ONE MORE BIG THING I FORGOT TO MENTION: 

 

His cpu would constantly be at high percentages even though there weren't any processes taking up a lot of cpu. Same goes for RAM

I actually thought it might be for a while. Once I get a display output I'll do a virus scan

Worst case, you could do that as well ask check the task manager assuming that he has Windows installed.

To try and identify where the resources are actually being used.
