    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.

    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.

    This is precisely what I thought happen, I honestly think something on the motherboard poped or blewed, when I sat the pc down I did notice a sound of clinging that wasn't there when I picked it up/sat it down outside.. i'm going to call ibuypowerpc the moment they open and plead with them to talk to me

    I don't know how his mom is going to react, i'm trying to fix it before that step...

    Some of these things I'm about to say haven't been said (as far as I remember) and they're simple but might as well make sure instead of assuming it was done.
    Try reseating the CPU
    Reseating power cables
    Maybe grab a different Gpu or RAM 
     
    What I'm thinking of doing is taking parts out and putting them into a different PC to deduct what is the problem.
     
    Like is said these are simple and you may have already thought of these but I can't assume anything.

    Ok first and foremost I have been working with computers for about 10 years.. While I don't tend to work with hardware all that much I know how to insert ram, reset cmos,short the pins etc... 

    Any-case, So yesterday night I biked over to a friends house to help him with a fps issue with GTA5, he was getting 4 fps, So I did all the basic trouble shooting and noticed the onboard graphic was being used and not the 1060 3gigs that was in the system, (pc was displaying and working flawlessly) I unhooked everything took it outside dedusted it and brought it in and just for extra safety reseated the two ram and the gpu just to ensure they where in there firmly

    Then I plugged the HDMI into the graphic card, No display.. so I tried the second port, No display, Tried going back to onboard, No display...

    I then proceeded to rotate ram, silver slots, black slots, 1 ram, alternate ram, Vga Cable, Different hdmi cables, different monitors, even hooked up a ps4 to the monitor to see if it got display

    Pulled the graphic card out tried, checked all cables thinking maybe dedusted caused something to slide out or something, Everything was seated, I tried dispersing the electricity, no luck as well, the system doesn't seem to have the beep thing plugged in, the light on the mobo is green, the fans spin, all the leds light up, the keyboard leds light up so I think its booting up just fine, its a DD4 System.. graphic card drivers where installed, the pc had restarted multiple times just fine before I unplugged it to dedust it

    I even went as far as to pull the cmos battery, check the heatsink on the cpu, reseat all the ram and gpu, even tried shorting the two pins for a clear

    This is pretty urgent that I find a solution or at least the problem before the 25, his mom gets back home and I had permission to work on by her and her son and I HAVE NEVER Seen this happen, I can't even get into bios please for the love of god someone save me, or else I could be looking at a very angry mother, potentially having to give them my computer to 'make this right' I don't even know how to begin to try to explain this because the son already thinks "I blew the pc" that "pcs just don't randomly stop working " (cough) and we all know that I will get blamed since my hands where on it, (I know for a fact nothing I did could have caused this, I do this stuff almost daily and use a professional grade deduster thats pc friendly)

    The pc is 
    2 ram totaling 16gigs
    Mobo is a h170 pro
    Cpu is a I something skylake 4nm or something
    1 data something ssd and 1 tb I believe WD?
    They threw away the box so I don't know the full specs.
    Windows 10 64bit, no idea what bios, I can't get that far to check...

    Pc was prebuilt by IbuypowerPC, Have until 25th 1am in the morning to figure this out, PLEASE HELP

    G33k 4 L1F3 reacted to Xaniene in No Display suddenly (Super Urgent)   
    As my post states, I am not seeing Bios, I am seeing a "No signal detected" believe me if I could get into bios I would have done that already.

    Too add to this the above post has a list of everything I've already tried, the PC Was "Working fine" before I unhooked it to dedust it and double check the seating just for incase something wiggled lose when I moved it outside to use my datavac deduster...
     
    I rotated hdmi cables ( tried 2 different ones) they both work on the ps4 with the same monitor and give display, gave all hdmi ports on the computer a try including the VGA, insured monitor input was correct... I'm completely freaking out because theirs a good chance I may have to give up my own pc to 'compromise on this' or hire someone or something... and i legitmently can't afford to do this. and I have until tomorrow to get this figured out before his mother comes home and I have to try to 'figure out how to explain to her.

    It's unreasonable to expect no spikes in ping when using wireless. Plug an ethernet cable in, at least temporarily and test your ping again.

    A computer can be very temper mental. One of the biggest reasons why a computer may due this can be as simple as a physical component is not seated correctly. When the PC is first powered on, it runs what is known as POST (Power On Self Test). If it runs into a problem with this test, it either beeps at you, or just shuts down.
     
    For starters, unplug every non vital USB or video, and reseat the RAM and graphics card. Then try to power it on. If it still does this, please inform us with what your components are so we can better assist. 
     
    One other possibility is that the motherboard was delivered with an incompatible or old version of its firmware, one that may not allow all the components to work with it.

    I think you need to clear the CMOS, revert your BIOS back to optimised defaults and don't touch anything in the BIOS that you don't know what it does.

    G33k 4 L1F3 got a reaction from BiscuitMassacre in Don't give up on that Board yet...   
    So last night I was with a client who was having trouble with their MSI A68HI motherboard not recognizing the SATA HDD. The day before he went and bought a new board, since this one was used to replace it, and now gets to return it.
     
    The symptoms were: 
    1. Motherboard wouldn't recognize HDD.
    2. Motherboard showed the HDD in click BIOS 4 top list of boot devices(which didn't make sense)
    3. Motherboard took forever with the POST.
     
    How this problem can be fixed.
     
    So the cool thing that MSI has with thier Click BIOS is the ability to use M-FLASH, which enables you to reflash the BIOS straight from the BIOS. If your board does not have this feature, but you sense there is a problem with your motherboard, don't give up just yet... theres still a way to fix that BIOS.
     
    The way is with a bootable Flash drive with the BIOS update executable on the drive. When someone says they have a bootable flash drive, it means that it has a DOS OS on it, like FREEDOS in which I recommend using. Using a software like RUFUS 2.0 Portable allows you to simply make a bootable drive by putting the needed files on it to do so. then just drag and drop the BIOS file straight into the main directory on the drive.
     
    After you completed that, you just boot onto the flash drive, and when it is on the CLI, you enter "DIR" which shows all the folders on the main drive, and CD "folder name" allows you to forward into that folder. After that if you needed to, simply entering Call "Execution-able file name here.exe"  will start the process, and just follow the directions they give to start the Flashing process. Its as simple as that.
     
    Doing the flash update for my clients BIOS allowed the fix they had for the newest BIOS on MSI's website to allow the HDD to be detected and allowed me to install windows in the end. Took about an hour to figure all of this out and install windows, but making the bootable drive, downloading the latest BIOS update, and flashing the motherboard should only take about 25min. Just another thing to try and save the trouble of an RMA or return because the board doesn't want to do it's best.
     
    Even though this may be in the wrong area, I just wanted to share my experience with my client from last night, where as we speak is enjoying the ability to play on his first custom built PC playing world of tanks at max settings
     
    lmk where I should post this if you want, or leave it here, it's fine either way to me.

    No, I hadn't read your entire post. 
     
    According to the site I sourced, attempt to install with no unecassary peripherals or drives connected, so just the main drive, one monitor, one keyboard, one mouse, and the USB.
     
    If that doesn't work, try going back to the prehistoric days of DVD installs. If thats not an option, attempt to get ahold of microsoft to see ift they have encounters with this issue.

    Check the motherboard manual for correct way of resetting the BIOS. this way you can get the correct way, not the general way that not all motherboards follow. some require the bridge of two pins, since they do not have a CMOS battery.

    nope it will work on any port.
     
    If you were to have two drives plugged in, both with OS's, it would probably load the one closest to 0 first though.
