  1. Yes, I doubt that would ever help on this. Try another USB stick (installation media). Crashing from installation media, exactly when does this happen?
  2. Try this and see if things improve. Search Start menu for cmd and choose run as administrator. In the window run this command and reboot your PC. chkdsk c: /r /f When your PC starts up again it will scan your C volume and fix it if it needs to. When back into the Windows desktop open CMD as before and this time run this command. sfc /scannow This will scan your critical system files for corruption and fix them if necesarry. Make sure you are connected to the internet. Reboot PC if something was fixed. If nothing was fixed or after you rebooted the PC open
  3. You don't use DDU to install drivers, on the contrary you use it to uninstall them, completely. So I assume you have drivers with Experience installed already, in this case... Download DDU and the latest graphics driver and make sure you know where it is. Next press Win key+r to open run dialogue. Type in msconfig and run it. Head over to the boot tab and choose safe boot. I use minimal personally. Hit OK and reboot the PC. You are now in safe mode, first check that safe boot is disabled so open msconfig as before and head into boot tab. If the check box for safe b
  4. Hmmm.. Lets try some things. EDIT: Make sure you are connected to the internet while performing these steps, I forgot to mention that. First check the volume, this will require you to reboot the PC. So first save all your work and search Start menu for CMD. Choose run as administrator and run the command below. chkdsk c: /r /f Reboot the PC and let it do it's thing, after which Windows should start. When back into Windows open CMD as before and run the below command. sfc /scannow Let that scan your system files and reboot if it says something about fixing curr
  5. I've used a 128 GB SSD as a system drive and it will do it's job however it will not leave room for much other things. A problem that I had was that GTA V had to be installed on the same drive as the user documents folder and that the Rockstar Social Club thing had to be installed at C:\ and had to also be on the same as the game. I worked around this with symlink to Social Club. Another trick is to disable hibernation which should save you some space. 256 GB or higher is recommended however. EDIT: A larger drive will last longer also so theres that as well.
  6. A user on this forum made a little program you can try. He's also really helpful if you need help running it. Give it a try. FanControl, my take on a SpeedFan replacement - Cooling - Linus Tech Tips
  7. Well if you did what I said (exactly how I said it) something is clearly wrong with your board (or something else). I would look into the possibility for RMA.
  8. ...........what different methods did you try? Your manual describes the following method (I have the same mobo) Turn off PC and unplug power cord Short Clear RTC pin for 5-10 seconds ....and done! Plug PC back in and boot it up. EDIT: This is the one and only method you should use on this board. Just for the record...
  9. Well at the low end efficiency isn't at it's best but power draw is pretty low at that stage so it hardly even matters anyway. Generally. If you told us the make and model we could give you more insight.
  10. If you have the app called Gamefirst installed, uninstall it. It messed with my bandwith.
  11. Nah they reserve a fee when I enter my pin and that's been refunded. Well, I'll see. That pump doesn't refund the reserved amount without also deducting the fee owed for the fuel. Besides, concealing the price of goods simply isn't legal here so there's also that.
  12. Sooooo... I went to fill a little bit of gazoline (or petrol if you will) I was only gonna fill around 10l because the price was huge something around €1,8-1,9 per liter... Anyway when I started to fill I noticed that the pump wasn't counting, all displays were blank and so I thought maybe the tank feeding the pump was empty because I could hear the pump going. I took out the nozzle a bit from the filling port and could see the fuel coming out. After filling no money had been removed from my account. So, free fuel. Yes! Thank you very much!
  13. Well I assume that either you didn't use the tool to make the USB into install media (the file you download from MS is a tool to make bootable USB install media) or you don't have the USB set as boot device. So if the first, go on a working PC (that boots into Windows etc), run that installer and let it install the install media on the USB drive. If the second, after turning the PC without Windows on at the first screen you see it should say something like "press F2 to enter UEFI/BIOS" it may also be delete or some other key. Press the key when you are on that screen and head
  14. Possibly, it could also be DEP now that you mention it. It just might simply restart the PC with no warning. I think that happened to me some time way back in maybe the XP days...? Anyway, anything you said there could be a part of the problem as far as I know. Installing the ASUS bloat probably wouldn't have made it any better, only thing I can think of is installing chipset drivers from ASUS first and upgrade them from AMD but I find it unlikely to help with this unless it's caused by something in the power plan, which could be possible I guess but probably unlikely as well.
