    When I put it together I did it in a lazy way and didnt use the stilt screws that seperate the motherboard and the case, its what the mother board stands on, but I dont think its that because its worked reliably without them for years. I switched the computer off last night at the mains the switchj on the back I didnt shut it down properly then this morning it didnt turn on. This morning was particularly cold, I just heated the room maybe the pc was affected by cold or condensation? Anyway its on now working perfectly but it took about 20 presses of the on switch to come on. Whats likely to be the problem?

    So I'll try to make a long story short, but will give all important details. So after a Windows 10 update my computer started running a bit slower and some of my games just stopped working or wouldn't work right. I tried removing/redownloading the games but that didn't work so I thought it was the updates that did. I ended up removing 2 updates and put my computer to sleep for the night. When I woke up and tried to start my computer again I noticed Icons starting disappearing and applications wouldn't load up so I thought restarting my computer would do the trick, it did not. Instead I got a blue screen that said my computer needed to restart, it was stuck in this loop so I forced a shut down and now my computer won't load up at all. I just get a black screen, It is receiving power and lighting up, same with keyboard and mouse (although caps lock and all that doesn't work so its not booting up at all.) I tried a few things already but nothing worked. I unplugged the hard drive and tried turning it on, it did nothing so I don't think thats the problem. Did I end up frying the motherboard or something? Also I would use a shell type program to stop windows defender from running because windows defender is terrible for a gaming desktop. Is there any way to fix this?

    Xigmatek is not a good brand of power supplies. Some reviews say they have high levels of noise and ripple on the various voltage rails, which means a slow death for your hardware. If it's the model with two +12V rails, don't buy it. For gaming performance, a single +12V rail is a far better choice. Look at Antec, Corsair, EVGA, Enermax, SeaSonic, Silverstone or XFX to name a few, they have much better units.

  • Is this a worthwhile processor upgrade from an i5 4460?

    Best answer: It's not a significant improvement unless you overclock it, which would require an aftermarket cooler. And unless you get a B250/H270/Z270 motherboard it won't even fit in your computer.

    Best answer: If I'm reading your question right, I would say that I always prefer PC gaming over consoles. A custom-built computer will always have more games available, and more potential to present those games with high graphical resolutions and settings.
    Consoles offer quick easy gaming, with less technical hurdles, and I understand their appeal. And sometimes there are great games that are only available on a console (like some Zelda games)... until a few years later when PCs can run those games using emulator software.
    I look forward to playing Zelda Breath of the Wild on a PC in a couple of years, when the PC emulators are up to the task.

    Noticed it about a month ago and I have no clue whats going on. Im not super computer savy but i know the baseline stuff...Regaurdless of what im doing, if its typing, gaming, on youtube, anything...My computer have second has a mini freeze where it locks up for like .25 seconds and then catches itself up to whatever just happens. So if im going and flying somehwere for example then ill freeze and glitch ten yards forward to current time and it happens over and over and over and over. When I turn my computer off it will Completely freeze at my desktop when its shutting down. I can move my mouse but i cannot click on anything. All i can do is press the power button on my PC. Ive tried alt f4 to unlock it when that happens but literally nothing works except moving my mouse. I ran an antivrus and cleared up 8 gigs but i have 1300gb free so there is no way that was the problem. I suspected RAM but simply watching a youtube video or typing this I still experience the freezing. Not sure what to do at this point other then start replacing part but that will get expensive and I have no idea what it will be. Sorry for the grammatical errors and such.

    My brother in laws desktop, which is quite old, it originally had Vista on it, but now runs Win 10 and has the original 3 gigs of ram and amd dual core processor, but had a hard drive replaced five years ago or so, is really a mess. When turned on it goes to "Attempting Repair" screen then shuts down completely, the tower turns off totally. He can get to the bios screen but that is it. I tried reinstalling Windows via booting from a disc, but it did the same thing, shut right down. So I'm thinking either a faulty hard drive, corrupted bios from all the infections he has had on that thing over the years, or a faulty power supply or even cpu Which in your view sounds most likely? We are hoping a new hdd does the trick. Are there viruses so extreme it could prevent booting from a disc, if so how likely is that?

I was on ebay trying to win a Geforce gts 660 ti for roughly 60$ almost won a couple but figured i should try and ask someone who may know a bit more than me on this kind of thing and see if i could get directions to finding parts for cheap
