    Hardware Thinking of Building A Gaming PC

    I took out the card and put it back firmly intact, still the same results. However, I haven't tried the uninstall-drivers-first method yet and will try that tomorrow. On the other hand, I've discovered a few things. The first one being that the VGA and HDMI ports from the motherboard are...

    How do you want me to approach the reinstallation? Do you want me to uninstall all of the graphics drivers first and then take out the video card and put it back in right after? Thanatos Telos I'll try resetting the BIOS. As for FRAPS, I just downloaded and measured the framerates on League...

    I already tried the latest stable graphics drivers (downloaded directly from the NVIDIA website) before I downgraded to a previous driver version; I still get the same results. I ran MSI Kombustor, and here were the results: http://i.imgur.com/7pWu7M6.jpg

    Sorry for double posting, but I want to address another issue, and I felt that it's best if I just keep it in this thread instead of posting my problems on another thread. As for my newly built PC, I've successfully installed everything just fine, but one thing that's been bothering me for the...

    My new HDD arrived today, and I finished installing it, but for some reason the new HDD isn't showing up when I go to START > Computer. On the other hand, when I go to the BIOS Settings and check for the HDDs, it displays that the new HDD is connected in Port 4. I don't understand what the...

    It may have been a misreading. CoreTemp states it's 85 degrees Celsius while the ASUS Performance and Power Savings Utilities states it's at 64 degrees Celsius right now.

    Thanks, that did the trick. :D I'll give drive cloning a try as soon as my new HDD arrives tomorrow, seems a bit straightforward. Originality Nothing shows up on the screen; it's as if the monitor never received the connection in the first place. Another problem is that the CPU has an...

    Originality The display works now :) I surmise that the VGA and HDMI slots from the motherboard are a problem. This time, I connected an HDMI cable from the motherboard to my TV monitor, and it does not work. On the other hand, I connected the HDMI cable from the GPU to my TV monitor, and...

    The VGA is plugged into the VGA port on the motherboard, and it won't boot up the display on thhe monitor. However, I do have this VGA-DVI converter or something that my GPU provided, I don't know if the VGA port on the motherboard is faulty.

    Alright. I already plugged the VGA from the PC to the PC Monitor, and it will not display anything, so I can't get to the BIOS.

    I made sure that the CPU power cable is plugged in at the top left corner of the motherboard. I switched in the molex adapters for the PCI-E power cable. Yeah, it's x1 8 GB RAM :/ I mistakenly thought I bought x2 4 GB RAM. Anyways, I moved the x1 8 GB RAM all the way to the left slot now...

    I received the computer parts today, and I assembled everything together but when I attempt to hook it up to my laptop monitor via VGA cable, nothing shows up. I changed from laptop display to PC display—nothing shows up but a black screen. The PSU is definitely working because I can See and...

    Thanks for the help and advice! All of my parts are coming in tomorrow afternoon or evening except for the HDD which comes in next Monday. :( Because I'm not the patient type of guy, I've decided to (temporarily) utilize my friend's old desktop's HDD (most likely SATA) in order to get the...

    Sorry about that, I'll use Newegg links. Oh, sounds cards are optional? So the motherboard already provides its own sound card? If so, I might exclude the sound card below. And, yes, the PSU I selected is the Corsair CX500M :D Motherboard...
