  • Computer help? My computer has these dark lines and they keep growing?

    Computer help? My computer has these dark lines and they keep growing?

    Best answer: The horizontal lines are due to physical damage to the screen. The only fix is to have the screen panel replaced, they cannot be repaired. If it is a monitor it is just as cheap to buy a new monitor, if it is a laptop take it to a local workshop for the screen to be replaced

  • Why can t my Dell OptiPlex 7010 boot from a CD?

    Best answer: If you did this properly you would have downloaded the Media Creation Tool and run that. that will have written the Windows ISO file and made it bootable. Windows states that 8GB is reqiuired (but usually not required) so a CD is not good enough but at least a DVD might suffice but get a DL DVD . I always... show more

  • Why wont my pc boot?

    I just recently built a pc from all brand new parts. When i press the power button the power led and the motherboard light comes on. The system fan and psu fan also starts. The gpu fan starts for a couple seconds then stops. There is no display. Could not having a cpu cooler be the cause of this?

    Best answer: You have not described the brand and model of power supply to support graphics cards.You havenot stated your computer case is full width for ATX height cards and double slot for card thickness.

    There are worthwhile used cards from ebay sellers. However, in new cards
    https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-...
    Your i7-4790K is Intel HD 4600 graphics.
    EVGA 02G-P4-6150-KR GTX 1050 2GB is available at $110 after mail-in rebate from either B+H Photo or Newegg.
    The GTX 1050 is under 75 watts and does not require a PCIe 6 pin power connector from the power supply.
    GTX 1050 ranks at #79 or 80 where lower rank is better
    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Computer-G...
    Your current is at about #422
    Your performance should be 5 to 8 times better. That is not 50 to 80%, that is 400% to 700% improvement in gaming performance.

    You can certainly go more expensive cards, but you need to assure that the card fits and power supply is adequate.
    $180 gets a low profile, if needed, GTX 1050 TI
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a...
    There are lower cost 4GB of graphics memory GTX 1050 TI cards of standard height.
    It's a 20 to 40% improvement over the GTX 1050 depending upon the game.
    RX 460 and RX 470 are last year's cards and require a better power supply.
    GTX 1050 vs RX 470
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEAOv72eRFg
    You can see an RX 470 is much stronger, but often bought used now. It even beats a GTX 1050 TI
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2EkM8EelpJs
    An RX 570 is available for under $200
    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125966
    GTX 1060 6GB is about $250
    You need at least a good 500 watt power supply with 6 or 8 pin pcie power connect.
    Does your system accept a standard ATX power supply?
    https://pcpartpicker.com/products/power-supply/#sort=price&e=6,5,4,2&W=500,2000
    That should be $40 to $50 more plus the labor to change it.

  • Worth buying?

    Best answer: $150 for that? A used 3gb GTX 1060 is worth about $150. If that system came with a weak and worthless GPU like a GTX 650ti, it would be worth $200-350 It's either a scam, the seller really wants to get rid of it, something is wrong with it, or something is wrong with the seller.

    Best answer: $150 for that? A used 3gb GTX 1060 is worth about $150. If that system came with a weak and worthless GPU like a GTX 650ti, it would be worth $200-350

    It's either a scam, the seller really wants to get rid of it, something is wrong with it, or something is wrong with the seller. The price of that PC is massively undervalued and something like that should go for $400 if it's working.

    It's worth it but it's also worth it to cover yourself and make sure you don't get scammed or shortchanged. Verify that the system works and verify that the hardware is what the seller says it is. Ask questions. In my local area there have been a couple people selling low speced PC's, but they say the specs are much better, while charging a higher price for the PC.

    The i7-3820 is equivalent to the Core i7-2600k, but you can at least upgrade to a 6-core Core i7-3930k, 3960x, and/or possibly the 3970x. It may be compatible with Ivy Bridge-E processors like the i7-4930k or 4960x. x79/LGA2011 motherboards aren't cheap either. Personally, If I saw one going for $150 and I knew it was legitimate and working then I'd buy it because that's too good of a deal to pass up.

    I left my computer on all night last night to update Fortnite with my monitor turned off. This morning I went to check up on it, the computer front pannel LED had power but it seemed to not have a signal to the monitor. Usually the inside of my computer is lit up from my led fan too but it was not when I checked today. I then switch off using the switch on the PSU and tried booting up the pc. No boot. Nothing happens. I tested the PSU and is working fine. I am wondering if the CPU or mobo is fried

  • Monitor keeps flashing?

    Best answer: Many monitors will start to flicker like that when their internal power supplies start to fail. This is due to cheap capacitors in the power supply, which "cook" internally. Some people can repair this, but it is cheaper to simply buy a new monitor.

    you do need that 64 bit os to be able to actually use it when it's installed, and you have to use whatever kind of ram your motherboard supports.

    and unless you're buying a whole new set of ram, it should probably be something as close as possible to what's already in there
