  1. Thank you so much! The GPU is posting a signal like normal again, your advice worked first try.
  2. How would I go about doing that? In the UEFI (dell motherboard, yknow) it says PCIe is enabled, but I'm not sure if that can still disable a display adapter
  3. I am currently writing this on integrated graphics with my GPU sitting on a table beside me. A few days ago, I had a hard drive issue and tried to use the dell uefi's secure boot feature. Whenever I did this, however, my screen went black and the LED indicator on the monitor went from white meaning active to yellow meaning idle or no signal. Following this, I hard-reset the pc by holding the power button and allowed for a full power cycle. Nothing. I removed and reinstalled the GPU, nothing either. The GPU is receiving power, at the very least, because the fan is still working. It hasn't shown

I don't think I am still in secure boot mode. My motherboard is a Dell custom sorta board, one f
  5. So a few days ago, I was troubleshooting an issue I had with an HDD that I bought off of ebay. I went into my dell motherboard's UEFI and tried to boot into what i assumed was their version of Safe Mode. When i did this, however, my GPU stopped working. I hard reset the PC and did a power cycle with no results. I then took out the GPU and swapped to the IGPU on my i5-3470 over a vga cable. It seemed normal so I don't think it's in that mode anymore. If it helps, the GPU is a PNY GTX 460 1GB GDDR5. The cable i use on it is a mini-HDMI to HDMI.
  6. I don't think so, basically the entire computer is inaccessible, and that was the only HDD i had
  7. Hello, before I start I feel it should be noted this is my first PC build and I am extremely inexperienced at this sort of thing, I mainly built this PC to learn and get my foot in the door for low-end PC gaming. I've run into a huge issue with it, though. I have the PC set to boot off of a 1TB HDD as that is the only storage part I had at the time of building. It is connected to the SATA 0 port on my Dell motherboard and is also connected to the PSU. The first issue stems from the fact I accidentally ordered a 3.5 inch drive for a case that unbeknownst to me was incredibly thin. This PC was a
  8. The Strider turned out to be the best option of the two, and will be great even with some light case modding, so this'll be the solving comment. Thanks a ton!
  9. Welp, that's fine then, at this point I just want to get the thing to run
  10. Will these PSUs fit into a case like mine? I feel it would've been helpful to mention the case itself is only 4 inches wide, or 10.16cm. I ask because on the website they look fairly beefy. On another note, do they have the correct cables? From what I can see, my current rig uses 2 molex cables for fans and not much else. I wouldn't feel good about buying one blindly, but the Strider sounds almost perfect. Can you verify if it would be fine?
  11. Hello, this is my first ever PC build, and I recently bought a Dell Optiplex Desktop 9010 with an i-5 3470 inside. I installed a 1TB HDD and a single 8GB stick of Patriot Viper DDR3 memory. (you can probably guess this is a pretty low budget build) I also plan to install a PNY GTX 460 (1GB) I have that required two 6-pin power connectors. Therein lies the problem, however, because powering all of that with the stock 250w power supply is not gonna happen. The issue isn't necessarily the wattage as far as I know (inexperienced btw) the problem lies in the amount of cables running out of the PSU.
