  1. Either a PSU tester of test the system with another unit.
  2. i haven't looked around that price range, but i doubt you'll be able to get a laptop with >960M performance at that price level. I would wait till we get the full lineup of Pascal based laptops, where the price drops of Maxwell Mobile chips are inevitable.
  3. Hmm... That CPU does not have integrated graphics. Do you have another GPU (preferably one that you don't have a use for anymore). I doubt that it would be the GPU though (it's quite obvious if it is) so you might be looking at a dead board. Check the PSU maybe?
  4. I've heard good things about the Dell Inspiron 7000 lineup. I own an XPS 15 myself, and my summary is this - It's a great laptop. Good build quality, good performance but its ultimately let down by Dell's horrible customer service.
  5. Every case is different, so the outcome may vary, but i would believe from the info i've received, that it's a dead board. Try unplugging everything that isn't essential to the board, as it might cause a short. Hard Drives, SSDs, fans, unecessary PSU connectors, Graphics cards and and all but one stick of RAM (remember, if you don't know EXACTLY where/what the failure is, everything is a suspect). If it doesn't boot up after that, try and clear CMOS. Since the PC refused to start after the incident, it might corrupted.
  6. Had the same issue a couple of days ago, receiving the same effects. The board ended up dying because of it. It's probably a fried board, to be honest.
  7. it's fried. i cleared the CMOS, still a no-go. I have ordered an ASRock Z97 OC Formula to replace this board, should be here any day now.
  8. huh. You might e onto something. New motherboard then?
  9. Hi everyone, i was hoping i could get a little help on this one. I'm having boot issues with my PC, and i can't figure out a solution to it. I was waiting for No Man's Sky to release on Steam when i thought to myself "you know, it would probably run more stabile if i turned off my CPU overclock". So i soft-shut down the system in Windows (Windows 10 Pro 64-bit), and when i pressed the power button to turn it on again... Nothing. just a quick flash from the LEDs on my soundcard and a "clack" from the power supply. i instantly thought the PSU died (EVGA SuperNova G2 850w), but i tes
  10. Maybe a last gen Pentium (G3258)? Its cheap and can keep up with chrome (and even more with OC), prices are dropping for last gen mobo's and RAM.
