  1. Thanks, but that's the last bullet point in my list of things I've already tried in the OP
  2. I bought a 500GB WD Black SN750 NVME M.2 drive for my old PC. Windows was already installed on an old SATA SSD (120GB Samsung 840 SSD) but I wanted a fresh installation on the M.2. I installed the new SSD on my motherboard and checked that I could access it from the existing Windows installation. I turned the PC off, and I downloaded the Windows ISO from here, and then followed this guide to create a recovery medium on a USB drive from my Macbook. In hindsight I could have used the PC with the existing Windows installation to do it, but it's so cluttered and slow so I couldn't be bothered
  3. I just tried connecting the Xonar via USB, but it doesn't seem to work. Apparently it requires custom PS3 firmware and some hack to get it kind-of working... I don't have a dedicated amp, it's just the one integrated in the subwoofer.
  4. I see, thanks for the info! You wouldn't happen to know what the most convenient/cheap way is to get the sound connected?
  5. I suspected as much, but the manual confused me... Thanks! So it's just an alternative to the analog outputs for the 5.1 speakers?
  6. I have a bit of a weird set-up going on right now: My 5.1 surround system is connected to an ASUS Xonar U5, which is connected to my PC with the USB cable. This works perfectly. After rediscovering my old PS3 I thought it would be nice to hook it up to my projector with HDMI, this meant I needed a solution for the sound. Running an additional cable from the projector is not an option as everything is worked into the wall, and I'm not even sure if there's a possibility to re-route the audio with the projector. Since the PS3 has an optical audio output, I ran an optical cable from the
  7. Thanks for the detailed explanation! Well, it does 1 beep right when booting, and then after a few seconds it gives 1 long and 4 short beeps. I checked it again, though this time it "hesitated" for a fraction of a second to get the last beep out... The very first boot-beep sounds slightly different from the others though. The reason I suspected that it was the BIOS config, is because when it worked it was on custom settings on an old version of the firmware. I flashed a new firmware version and it still worked, but then in then new version I restored to defaults. These defaults were very
  8. I just tried booting with the speaker, it's one long beep and four short beeps. I looked it up and it should be "CPU Fan Error", "CPU Over Temperature Error", or "CPU Over Voltage Error". Since I didn't touch anything physically before it stopped posting, I assume my suspicions were correct and that resetting the BIOS to default changed some setting that isn't compatible with my hardware, specifically my CPU...
  9. I've just ordered a speaker since I don't have one, I'll update when it arrives. Thanks for the suggestion! I'm not sure if I still have the original disk, I also can't check since the original box is about 7 hours driving away... Could I burn a disk myself from a download somewhere? The ASUS website wasn't very helpful unfortunately.
  10. I didn't know you could do that, so I just tried it and there's no noticeable difference unfortunately.
  11. I apologise in advance that I've already posted a thread on this topic, but most people who responded seemed to focus on the wrong issue... I had some trouble installing Windows on my M.2 drive, so I updated my MoBo's BIOS firmware, and checked that everything still worked, which it did. I then decided to reset the settings in the BIOS to the "default" settings, since I don't remember what I changed when I originally set this PC up. It restarted, and suddenly it's not posting anymore. I'm pretty sure it's not just a coincidence that this happened right after I changed the settings,
  12. Hmm, I just tried it and waited around an hour and then put in a new CMOS battery. No results...
  13. When it was still posting, I did try that. I changed the boot order, in every possible configuration, even unplugged the USB drive, but nothing worked.
  14. Hmm, I hoped to avoid that unless there's nothing else I could try... I've never cleared the CMOS before until just now, I just remove the battery right? Is there anything specific I need to do, like leave it out for X seconds/minutes? I want to try it again (and make sure I do it properly) before I start disassembling everything. Is there any way to reset the BIOS to factory settings, so that it also removes any updates I did? I think the problem might be because I upgraded the BIOS firmware and then reset to default settings. The defaults must have changed between firmware versions
  15. Well, the drive was working, I could go through the installation process and everything. The problem happened when it wants to reboot to continue the installation, it just returns to the beginning. Anyway, the drive is working, but I can't boot from it because the PC is not posting. I'm not sure remaking the drive that worked will solve the problem if I can't even get into the BIOS?
