  1. Thats the ticket. Windows can only do so much when you do a fresh install. it is always best to lookup each hardwares product page and download the drivers to get the best support. I always have lagging issues with new server setups.
  2. Make sure you reinstall any and all necessary drivers needed from the respective manufacturers. Not having proper drivers can cause heavy lag and issues as Windows is trying to use generic drivers to try and communicate with the equipment.
  3. And you verified that the password change did not go into effect?
  4. Any issues I have ever experienced when working with clients at work regarding hyperlinks for passwords or similar, it always turned out to be a problem either with the browser needing a quick cleanup/cookie wipe or the website is being wak. I would begin by running a cleaning utility to clear any soggy and stale cookies making a mess of your browsers. Then report back.
  5. Sounds to me like a messed up driver. If you recently updated the laptops display driver, revert to the old driver and see if the problem persists. If you have not recently updated drivers, please do so. If it is heat related, you can monitor using HWMonitor. This will give you temperatures on board and around the laptop to see if it is that. Let us know what you discover.
  6. @Justasking This smells like a power issue. Could be as simple as a loose connection. First thing you can do is pitch the CD drive lol. jk, but follow what @Levent said with removing all but what is absolutely necassary to start. this wayt we can eliminate variables to what may be preventing the system from starting.
  7. Just because it shows power, doesn't means something cannot be broken. If you remove the gpu again, does it post?
  8. Its...a computer. Dudes got some serious addictions for flipping out over something that can easily be replaced. lol
  9. @Xaniene? Unless there is the ability to try other hardware, it sounds to me like something went bad. It happens. Try to stay calm when you explain it to the client. They don't know computers like you do, and when I handle a berating client, I inform them about alternatives and understanding that I am there to help them to the end. I would definitely ask them when the PC was purchased and let them know you would contact ibuypowerpc to make things right. I'm sure you will get to the bottom of this, but without testing with spare hardware, seems the only explanation is that it is a hardware mal
  10. @Fuzzleworth1 100% Agreed. I know from working with PC hardware for 8 years that I constantly assume the worst, when in reality it is always the simple things that cause the most stress haha.
  11. Do yourself a solid, and be aware of what ramps up when you enter a game. some investigative work will go a long way. The three most common fans to be super loud is the PSU, GPU and CPU fans. My money goes on either the PSU or the CPU. and considering you use a Hyper 212 Evo on a K series CPU, Id make the assumption you are doing a minor OC. OCing will cause heat which in turn causes noise. If not ,Im still willing to bet if the pc isn't on carpet, then the CPU is to blame. That is you haven't been altering fan speeds within BIOS, which is also a possibility. As far as
  12. I admit I quickly read and reread trying to piece everything together on this issue. I would try and keep it simple. and try not to sweat so much about this. Hell, use me as a reference and I would be happy to calm your clients down. If it all started when you took it apart. I would begin with the basics. Remove all but one stick of RAM, remove graphics card, replug into onboard, and remove the CMOS battery. One extra step you need to do with clearing the BIOS is there is a jumper known as the CLRTC. here is a pic on where it is on that motherboard below. after followi
  13. Ah, I regretably brain farted... with no display, why would you ? my bad @Xaniene Have you tried removing the graphics card, and rerunning off the onboard? p.s. Don't loan anyone a personal PC. I am a technician by trade, and have an entire stack of PC's that I loan to clients before a replacement is purchased. If it's new enough, maybe thiers is under warranty. Just remind them that the original issue had to do with graphics to begin with. Just like cars, as soon as you start tearing things apart to fix one probblem, many more can start to surface until soon enough it
  14. Go into bios and check that the option is set to either automatically detect the output of video, or to select only dedicated graphics. *edit* whats stopping you from getting into bios? Also, inform the client that technology has a wierd way of throwing a cog into anyones wonderful stress free life.
  15. The 1080 should not have any issues like this. GPU health is based on the loss of performance and/or artifacting. The Fx 8150 was released way back in October 2011. All signs point to bottlenecking. Plus your on AM3. its about time you considered upgrading to AM4. I would personally just skip am3+ altogether considering you have a 1080.
