    Are we Alone?

    This is the proverbial "more than it seems" question. It isn't as straightforward as it seems, and as such, no straightforward answer will do. I'll give my 20 cents, despite no-one asking me to do so :slap: On one side of the fence we have the evolutionists. Life on Earth appeared from a...

    Man, I'm really pissed as of now, but seeing that comment just made me laugh :laugh: So, it appears this is a mobo problem. System disassembled and no image on the monitor yet. EDIT: Soo... and since my monitor was working flawlessly until This system in particular, I'll assume it really is...

    checked before ordering the components. It's on the list. Still the same without ODD and HDD. Going to dismount this sucker piece by piece. Man Why did this have to happen :banghead::banghead: EDIT: Yeah, i've checked with the ram on slot 1 and 4. Started with it on slot 4, actually. Then...

    Nah, the power supply isn't new, I bought it nearly a year ago - when i was supposed to have bought the entire system. It worked flawlessly with my old setup, don't think it's it. Going to try and boot without IDE ODD and hdd.

    That's what i'm planning to do, if no-one as any other suggestion... But now the Ram is used. I doubt they'll swap it. Anyway, I figured "Good for me", since this 4gb stick is more expensive than the 2x2gb set...

    yeah, I think it's the motherboard too.. But my geforce card won't have it's fan working at 100% like the sapphire does. Any logical reason for this? Are there no other options, nothing else I can do to try and fix this before I take the system apart? No other possible causes that any of you...

    Tried resetting the bios through the jumper, nothing different. This motherboard (according to it's instruction manual, anyway) has the Reset switch orientated differently - the negative must be on the left instead of on the right. Corrected it. Still the same problem, still won't shut down...

    Oh, that. Yes, my case has them pre-installed. Some golden connectors between the mobo and the screw-holes. I only used screws where there were such stando-ffs.

    Standoffs? like what, small rubber shells? No... never used such things, not that i can recall. I've already built 3 computers and never had this happening. Do you have any idea why the graphics card acts up like that? Would that happen if it's a short between the case and the mobo? Corsair...

    But with no image, how can I change the BIOS settings?... I've just moved the bios jumper to clearing the settings... I'll try again. I really don't understand. Installation went smoothly, no problems whatsoever. Now this... The fact that the pc doesn't reset or turn off after I turned it...

    No, chipset 870 doesn't have integrated graphics. There's no image on the monitor, it doesn't even light up. And my card just goes wild.

    Awesome post, Mailman. You really did put a considerable amount of time towards this post - kudos =) It really is a shame that most games don't use accurate physics. I so did like it when I set the targeting reticule a hairbreadth above a guy's head in counter strike and it simply went against...

    You wont get any better than this

    Well, mine is quite ancient. And it's what I primarily use. Pentium 4 oc'ed, as you can see in my specs. But my motherboard is a gem, you know? It separates the processor's clock from the memory: I can OC them separately. Alas, it doesn't have any voltage control whatsoever... When a friend...
