  1. So fully rested and thinking clearly, I attempted to install the card again. The card has 2 8-pin connectors. I didn't notice it because as I was handling the card my thumb was covering the two of the pins on the side. It's also not a good idea to install anything when tired. I have two 6-pin connectors. I only have one 8-pin, so this isn't going to work. Thought there were two but alas there isn't. I'll just opt to save up to build another rig in the near future. Thanks for your time guys.
  2. Edit: forget everything that I posted Earlier. After putting the old card back, The PC was still cutting off. After inspecting the machine I found a Brown Recluse (Spider) had gotten into my CPU fan. The fan wasn't spinning and the CPU overheated. After cleaning out everything the Fan is working again. So in the morning, I'm going to inspect the PC, clean it out and install the card. I will keep you posted.
  3. Okay. That actually helps. I'll give it shot, and hope for the best. Thank for the help. I really do appreciate it.
  4. I understand the need for approximate naming for hardware but, and I say this respectfully, it takes away from the issue at hand and I really need help with this. I don't want to install this card into my PC and damage it or anything else inside. I don't have the funds to replace anything if something goes wrong. All of what you are saying seems to make sense. I can't verify your measurements, but you don't strike me as someone who is just trolling for fun. IDK if this helps, but I'm enclosing images the technical spces of the Processor and Graphics Card, and Mainboard that I'm using.
  5. So far it has A DVD-R Burner, 2 HDD and 1 SSD, Nvidia GTX 970 (4GB) with 24 GB Of Ram. I wanted to swap out the 970 for a Geforce RTX 2080 Super. Edit: This is a work computer and it's the only one I have so I don't wanna risk installing this card and destroying it and the PC.
  6. I've been trying to find the technical manuals for this pc, but all I can find atm, is a picture of the original stock supply from an Ebay auction https://www.ebay.com/c/1300671193 It looks like it though.
  7. The current power supply in this unit is 625W, and I need 650W or 750W. Can anyone recommend a replacement power supply for this PC?
  8. Clear CMOS and run Memtest if the issue continutes: https://www.memtest86.com/download.htm If the test comes back with any errors its more than likely a memory issue. Whenever you get a Memory kit it's better and safe practice to get the same type of memory across the board. Not saying that different mem kits could be the issue but it could be a possibility.
  9. Update: I have a notice in Windows Update that says that the upgrade is being prepared for me, so I just have to wait.
  10. I've never had this problem with any previous version of Windows 10 or 8.1
  11. I used the update assistant, and it was able to download the ISO but when it came to the installation it stopped and kept displaying this message below. I've tried disabling Fast Startup, shutting down the update services and starting them up again. Nothing. Anyone have any ideas?
  12. No error codes at all. Everything works as it should. Powers up, shutdown, access files, running apps...everything is working like it should. Windows 10 just tells me it's going to scan the drive unless I press any key in 10 seconds at the splash screen.
  13. I just got a new SSD for my PC, which is holding my dual-boot systems, Windows 10 Pro(First, Work and Manjaro Linux(Second, testing projects). Now the installation was easy and effortless and I am able to access both OS'es without any problem. Even the Diagnostic software for the drive says everything is perfect. But, every time I go to boot up into windows, the splash screen says that it's going to scan the drive in 10 seconds unless I press a key. I never had a problem with a dual boot system before, and it's only Windows 10 that's reporting there is an error with the drive
