    Is my HDD dying?

    Might be a stupid question, but would a PSU tester nail an issue if there is one? Never had a problem with my PSU.

    Is my HDD dying?

    Done. Still having this weird issue where I have to click things multiple times. Possibly a corrupt mouse driver? My hard drive hasn't made a sound the entire day.

    Is my HDD dying?

    Ran the Windows memory diagnostics and nothing came up. These are screen caps from my two drives.

    This and the other program posted are showing 100% health.

    Is my HDD dying?

    Doubt it since I have Malabytes, and AVG paid running. I don't usually download anything suspicious either. I'll run a system scan though. Luckily this will be covered under warranty if it is the 640GB WD. The other hard drive is out of warranty.

    Is my HDD dying?

    So last night I'm browsing the web when everything on my computer slows way down. My Hard drive was making the noise like it was fragmented constantly until I restarted the computer. After rebooting I logged into my profile (running Windows 7) and HDD is making the fragmented sound for almost...

    RAM unstable @ 1600Mhz

    The second one does have a lower bar code number on it, and it was the one I was thinking was the older stick. I'll be RMAing this pretty soon, but I'm surprised it ran at 1600 for so long without issue.

    RAM unstable @ 1600Mhz

    The second stick, correct? I'm totally confused because I don't know which stick is the old, and which is the new. Reading the actual specs on the RAM they are both labeled at 1600, and 9-9-9-24. Is there any way my original RAM lowered its own timings? Because I had these working at 1600 for...

    RAM unstable @ 1600Mhz

    The old RAM wasn't allowing my system to post at all so I'm assuming this is new RAM. One concern I'm having is I'm getting different reading in CPUZ. Is this normal?

    RAM unstable @ 1600Mhz

    Sorry for the jumbled mess. I'm just using a second stick of 2GB RAM. They are both the same model as in the OP.

    RAM unstable @ 1600Mhz

    I just had a stick of RAM die on me so I sent it in to Gskill. Originally I had two sticks so I'm still using one of the original, and the new stick sent back from Gskill. Now whenever I set the frequency from 1333 to 1600 I'm getting system freezes. Ran memory diagnostics on Windows 7 without...

    Overclocking 6850 question

    How long should I be running the Furmark stability test before I consider it stable?

    Overclocking 6850 question

    Is there a program I should be testing with?

    Overclocking 6850 question

    Is it safe/smart to turn the settings all the way up in Overdrive (minus fan)? First time overclocking.

    New Build not getting picture

    I brought my case into the local computer shop. The guy was nice enough to let me try out another stick of RAM before charging me 50 dollars to look at everything. It turned out that it was the problem. Thanks. Also thanks to everyone that helped.

    New Build not getting picture

    Is there any other way to reset the bios other than taking out the battery? Also will I hear a beep on this mobo? I don't know if it comes with a speaker.

    New Build not getting picture

    I'll have to buy a new board. Any suggestions on a quality board?

    New Build not getting picture

    Also there are loads of people saying their 1055t is working fine with this mobo @ newegg.

    New Build not getting picture

    This is the only CPU I have. Does anyone have a suggestion on what I should RMA? I could return the mobo if that is the problem for something better.

    New Build not getting picture

    Nothing with either stick. Saw this on a review at newegg. Do you think the memory is the issue? I could get some from Amazon by Monday, and RMA these tomorrow.

    New Build not getting picture

    Plugged that in. Somehow I'm STILL getting no picture. The red memory light by the memok! button is finally on all the time now though.

    They are both exactly the same. Even tapped to each other.

    I have two cables with a four pin connection. One says 4+ and one 4P. Which one do I connect?

    Is there supposed to be a power cable in that four pin connector in the upper left? :banghead:
