  • What could be wrong with this Desktop?

    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.

    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?

  • Everything looks to be working fine in Desktop PC, but no display?

    Hi, A few days ago I decided to clean my Desktop PC because it was lagging a lot when I was using it. I cleaned the GPU, CPU cooling fan, and the Heatsink which the fan is attached to, all with a vacuum cleaner. When put all of the cleaned components back in, nothing came up on the display.

    Hi, A few days ago I decided to clean my Desktop PC because it was lagging a lot when I was using it. I cleaned the GPU, CPU cooling fan, and the Heatsink which the fan is attached to, all with a vacuum cleaner. When put all of the cleaned components back in, nothing came up on the display. I did some research and some people said "Clean the RAM Motherboard Connectors with an eraser", so I did, and various other things that they told me to do. After I cleaned it, there were 6 beeps coming from the computer, so I just took the GPU out and put it back in again, and that seemed to fix the issue of the beeps, but there was still no display. Could I have done something wrong? Please answer as soon as possible as I need this PC for a project. Regards, Angus

  • Should I replace my HDD with an SSD? Add a supplemental SSD? or replace it with another HDD entirely? Or replace it with an SSD?

    Best answer: I'm not sure about the errors... But people usually go with both a SSD and an HDD. The HDD gives you the large storage capacity you need to store music, pictures, videos, etc that don't need that speed of an SSD. Meanwhile the SSD can be used for files that need quick access like your operating system, or... show more
    Best answer: I'm not sure about the errors...

    But people usually go with both a SSD and an HDD. The HDD gives you the large storage capacity you need to store music, pictures, videos, etc that don't need that speed of an SSD. Meanwhile the SSD can be used for files that need quick access like your operating system, or programs and games you use often.

    I'd also highly recommend having some sort of backup. Most of the times drives will die without warning.

  • Will an i7-4790k CPU still be suitable for Nvidia's new Volta lineup?

    PC Noob here, I just want to know if the "2060" of the next gen Volta cards will work fine with my CPU: an i7-4790k?

    PC Noob here, I just want to know if the "2060" of the next gen Volta cards will work fine with my CPU: an i7-4790k? My brother built my PC back in 2015, and I like the idea of building my dream PC, but don't yet have the funds to start fresh. I would only be able to upgrade my GPU, which is why I'm going to wait just a little longer for the new cards (I know you're not meant to always wait but they're only a couple months off). So, since I only want to upgrade my GPU and maybe throw in an extra 8GB stick of ram, will an i7-4790k live in harmony with the new card? I know its specs are foggy but I'm open to predictions. Like I said, I'm newby, appreciate this kinda help.
