  1. Is there any specific error recorded in Event Viewer of these crashes? Maybe showing a faulting module?
  2. https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/461.09/461.09-desktop-win10-64bit-international-dch-whql.exe Can you give this driver installer a shot? Please post a screenshot of any error message you get that prevents you from proceeding.
  3. Uh oh! Can you verify that there are no bent pins on the CPU socket?
  4. It's honestly unlikely that there's a huge issue, especially if a decent shop checked it out. I used to do that kind of work, I've seen a bunch of weird crap happen that can freak you out, but everything is probably OK. Don't worry too much, we'll figure it out
  5. No this is totally normal. Honestly... try another monitor cable. Try changing your monitors input. Try another monitor (hook it up to your TV even). It could be something simple!
  6. First, try removing the GPU itself and then boot with the iGPU. If the issues persist, it's likely the motherboard. EDIT: ACTUALLY try removing your peripherals on boot up. ESPECIALLY printers or external media. Then try messing with the GPU and etc.
  7. Type winver in the start menu and hit enter. It should tell you what version you're on. It's highly likely you're stuck on 1909 or earlier.
  8. Did the system shut off? Or did the display just go blank? Please post specs when you can
  9. This shouldn't pose any significant issue. If you're concerned, pick up a GPU sag bracket.
  10. It could be a bunch of things. I suggest, to start: - disabling unneeded start-up apps in Task Manager - running memtest86 for 3 passes - dropping your OC 100Mhz - updating your BIOS
  11. The case getting hot won't break anything. But if it's getting warm enough to cause that, you may have fairly limited airflow. Just keep an eye on your CPU and GPU temps when gaming and ensure they don't get too warm. Otherwise, you're probably fine
  12. If the case temps get warm enough, it will easily cause the metal and plastic to expand at different rates, causing popping noises. I can't verify that's what your system is doing though. Try running with the side panel open and see if the issue continues
  13. There's about 100 reasons that can happen haha. Have you wiped your GPU drivers and reinstalled them to see if the normal performance returned?
