Pi**ed off is what I am :( My PC sucks ass

Post by swampyajc » Mon Mar 12, 2018 11:05 am

Hi Guys

So I finally bought a new replacement 1155 Motherboard and fitted it.
Tested PC last week all seemed fine and spent the weekend installing software.

Last night I got a quick game of BF1 with Zap and then my PC screen did what it did a few months ago and flickered and went blank.

Now I can get no picture from my Graphics Card so I think it could be the card that was broke and may have fried the port on teh motherboard (which I guess is what happened on the old one) :*( All the light are on on the Gcard and teh fans spin, it even changes colour when I remove the Display port or HDMI cable so it appears to be working but all I get is a lit black screen on my monitor. Pluging a HDMI into my MB gard does work and boots to windows.

I am going to send a email to Palit as my Gcard is only 15 months old but I am not holding much hope they will do anything.

I am seriously not one happy bunny! GRRRRRRR F**king PCs!!! :Wall:

In the meantiem if anyone has any tips I would be grateful.

I wanna play BF1!
:P Remember the days when the steam sale was amazing? Now days its a game in your wishlist is for sale (You look and find it has 0.89p off £49.99) NOT A SALE STEAM!!!!! :P MTFBWY

If your motherboard has an display port, see if it boots up with that, with the GFX card removed.

I'd say PSU. Mine did exactly what you are describing on BF1 and it was the power supply.

Thanks Guys

I didnt even think it could be the PSU!

A guy at work is leanding me a old pci express gcard this evening so I can test the slot. But I may order a PSU today as mine has always been quite loud.

Fingers crossed I will be back in BF1 soon ! ! !

The people I bought my G card off contacted me today and said I can return it as its still under warranty :) YAY
So I will wait and see if they find a fault. Hopefully it is the card thats faulty if not I will try PSU next.

The story continues...

I have sent my Graphics Card back under warranty so will see what happens on that one!

I tested another Graphics Card that I borrowed and it did the same black screen.

Sooooo I bought a lovely new PSU (when did they get so expensive!?!) Last time I bought a PSU they were a max of £50

Put that in and guess what...

Exactly the same so I figure the motherboard is deeeeed but it could be mt gcard thats killing them!

So looks like my fix now is buy yet another 1155 Motherboard or bite the bullet and get a new

Motherboard
Processor
&
Ram

I have DDR3 and seems now I would need DDR4, somehow I will get back into BF1 world! I refuse to buy BF1 for the PS4!!!

PS: FOOOOOOOOK me RAM is pricey at the moment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PPS: If anyone plays PS4 add me so I can have some gaming buddies whilst I work on this PC issue (well lack of PC issue)
