Recommended Posts

Okay so today I just built a computer, but its being a problem child. anyone got any ideas?

 

Specs are:

 

 

  • AMD FX4300
  • HyperX 8GB 1866Mhz DDR3
  • EVGA GTX 750 SC
  • MSI 970A Motherboard
  • Corsair CXM500
  • SanDisk Pules 128GB SSD

 

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

 

Its currently refusing to display anything, even with a different monitor and was displaying earlier

 

Currently had 3 BSOD in the space of an hour.

 

Installation of EVGA programs and drivers arent working properly.

 

FireFox crashes instantly

BSODs followed by no picture could be faulty or incompatible RAM, GPU, or motherboard. Is it all new? Are all your connections good?

Check the specs of everything to ensure its all supported by the motherboard then if that's all okay you'll have to try swapping out each part one at a time to find the issue.

I have a feeling its either the GPU or the RAM. All components are new, though the Amazon Shipping box was batter...

 

 

Cant access bios at all. but the funny thing was, it was working fairly fine until the BSOD

Not being daft but did you check compatibility with something like pcpartpicker.com before ordering? Could be worth a shot if it is incompatibility rather than just a broken RAM stick/GPU that's causing your issues.

 

Also I'm currently in the process of building a PC myself, just awaiting the final couple of bits so I'm hoping I don't have this problem! :/

Hyperx ram is pretty shoddy unfortunately (wouldn't expect it with kingston but there you go). Make sure the voltage is right for the chips. A lot of them are overclocked slower chips so need 1.65v not the standard 1.5v to work.

Hmm PC Part Picker says no Issues other than BIOS needs an update, but still wouldnt explain the problems...

 

 

RAM Should be fine, Im gonna pull that out and stick that in my other computer to see if thats dead or not

Is it more than 1 stick of RAM Miffy? If it is, might be worth trying each stick individually in case it's just 1 that's failed.

I had the problem of plenty of BSOD when i put mine together and it turned out the 1600MHz HyperX was 1333MHz chips that had been OCd (clock speed and CAS latencies). I spoke to Kingston to ask what the hell and got two options, run on 1.65v or under clock back to 1333 and relax the CAS. I'm certainly not the only one who has had the problem with HyperX.

What size power supply are you running?

 500W

 

 

But the main problem is, that nothing will display on screen when i boot it up, just pure black. No BIOS Access. I really do think its GPU

I would be more inclined to go along the lines of compatibility issues rather than faulty gear.

Have you any other memory you can pop in to fire it up with?

Are there any shorts between the board and the case or any other parts? Strip it all back and check every screw and connection before you buy any new parts.
