Q: Help with my custom built computer

I have recently attempted to create a custom built computer for the first time, i have followed guides and got the computer all made but when i power it up it makes a loud high pitched noise! how do i get it working properly, it turns on theres just a huge noise.

I also have a second question, my new computer has a 320mb 8800GTS graphics card in it, and has 2 DVI slots on the back of it, my monitor has a DVi and a VGA, but i only have lead for VGA, but i have 2 apadtops which turn a VGA into a DVI. But the adaptor only works in the graphics card, if i put an adaptor on my monitor it doesnt fit, will the monitor still work?

Preferred Solution: Help with my custom built computer

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Can you isolate where the noise is coming from? Could be a bad fan, noise from the case speaker, etc...

Okay I have a costum built pc, I built it about 2 years ago. I'm currently running Windows Vista 32 bit. The other day I went to go turn it on and the motherboard instead of giving me the normal 1 beep, it gave me 1 long and 3 short. It goes to start up and then the screen goes black, it shows me my cursor but still the screen stays black. I have an Asus M2R32-MVP motherboard. I looked up the beep codes and it told me " no video card or bad Ram." Well I switched the ram and changed the video card and I no longer get the beeps but the screen goes black after Windows start up. I used my old hard drive to see if that was the case, same problem. I was wondering if anyone could possible help me out, I would greatly appreciate it!

My power supplies keep burning out. I think it has to do with my old hard drives 8+ years old. They make lots of noise and sometimes aren't detected when i power on the computer. Is this likely?

At the moment, I am using two. one to power the harddrives 650W and a 350W to power the motherboard. I was using an 850W for both, but it kept messing up.
Not sure about the models of current ones.
By burning out I mean it messes up. It gets to where it will shut off and the computer will start over. I have it set in the BIOS to resume previous state after power loss. If I disable that it will stay off. As soon as I replace the power supply it will start working again.
It varies at when it happens depending on how long I have had the power supply. When using a single one it lasts about a month. With this current 2 power supply combo it has lasted about 3 months. This is a overall time frame not constantly on.

The 650W had already started restarting constantly. It would still however supply power, so I was using them separate to test the harddrive theory The 350W to keep the motherboard on to keep it from restarting and the 650W to power all the drives. I accidentally plugged a drive into the 350W, so it may still be the reason for messing them up.
Also, the 350W would not power the computer. Look at the specs above. The f... Read more

I recently built a new custom computer and used the following components:
+ Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5.
+ RAM: Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (4 x 4 GB) DD3-1600.
+ CPU: Intel Xeon E3-1231 V3 3.4GHz Processor.
+ Storage: Intel 520 250 GB SSD.
+ Video Card: Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming.
+ PSU: Corsair RM Series 550w.
+ Drivers: All drivers are up to date and have been installed from Gigabytes website. BIOS is also up to date.
+ Operating System: Windows 8.1 x64-bit
I am experiencing two issues and I am not sure if they are connected so I'll list them separately.
1st Issue: Occasionally when I restart the computer, Windows will go to the "Restarting..." splash screen as expected, but afterwards, the screen will go black and the restart process won't complete. The computer components are on and so is the monitor. The only way to get it out of this state is to do a hard reboot.
2nd Issue: Occasionally when I boot or restart the computer, it will be extremely laggy after start up. Here is a video with me moving Firefox with task manager showing CPU usage: https://youtu.be/2XnbYj98uF8. Notice the CPU spikes up to 40+%. Nothing else is running.
Solutions I have tried: I have tried reformatting my hard drive. Replacing my hard drive. Running MemTest86 (found no errors). Re-securing the cables on my motherboard. Turning off fast startup.
I'm not sure what else to do. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

i had a custom "nova" computer given to me. the motherboard is an ABIT-BE6-II. i have read many good things about this motherboard. the particular items that i like are the Fcable and s-video ports. i tested the hard drive and power supply on a separate computer, so i know that they work. this is my first "real" project.
there is no internet connection supplied to the unit. only mouse, keyboard, and monitor.
the hard drive is a maxtor with 30GB storage and xp installed.
the power supply is a viomax ATX model AT500.N ITEMW606. additional information written on it are as follows;

INPUT: 100V-127V/6A 60 Hz
200V-240V/3A 50 Hz

OUTPUT: +3.3V +5V +12V -12V -5V +5VSb
MAX(A): 30A 50A 25A 0.8A 0.5A 2.0A

i am fairly confident that i have everything connected properly, with the exception of the hard drive. the only vacant ribbon cable was assumed to be the hard drive connection.

when i tested the computer, it showed several screens. none of them were the typical windows screen that i am familiar with. then, it displayed a screen similar to this:

Recently the dllhost.exe has been using up almost all my physical ram (amount of ram installed is 16GB). When this happens my computer is slow. don't what caused it. Right now (after restarting, runing DDS, task manager/resource monitor, and opening Firefox) my computer has used 5GB out of 16GB. dllhost.exe is using the most. also when I open my computer it takes a long time to load and the left sidebar on the explorer is not showing links.
My protection software is Bitdefender sphere 2013 (2-yr key). Should I be using BD or should I use something else? The only thing BD detects is a possible virus from an email in thunderbird, which I think I deleted. I did a clean install in June.
I sometimes use my computer as a miner (BTC or LTC) when I am not using it.
Yesterday there was a message saying bitcoin-qt had to quit because there was no more memory. This has never happened before.
I turn my computer off everynight (is this a good thing?)

My husband bought a custom-built PC from CyberPowerPC about a month ago. Ever since he got the PC we have had a problem with the screen glitching...it almost looks like someone hit the screen. Then, it will go to BSOD. I have posted an image of the error screen we are getting. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, we have uninstalled and reinstalled Windows 7, the graphics drivers, and also have been very selective about the Windows Updates because that was causing an issue before.

That is probably a video card error. It should still be under warranty contact Cyber Power.

Recently, I have encountered several computer problems. The first of all of my problems started before I installed the new RAM, when Windows XP got the BSOD before startup. Trying to fix the problem, I decided to attempt to repair. Unfortunately, I have several Window XP disks and each one was somehow corrupted. Then, I wanted to do a fresh install. Trying to get to the fresh install was a pain however, as I was put into an endless "Setup is continuing" every bootup.

Anyways, this is besides the point. I finally got Windows XP to install, and once I did this, I installed DDR2-Dual Corsair 800 5-5-18T RAM cards. So, the computer was running very smoothly, and in the middle of playing "Platform Racer 2" the computer crashed. Ok, no big deal, this happens with a custom built computer every now and then. Ok, so I go back to the computer and browse the net - CRASH! I decided it may be the RAM, and I tried switching the slots. However, when this happened, I recently realized I did something incorrectly and only 2GB are active. The time of the computer running is about 5X longer, and I have yet to see a crash.

Which leads me to the main point - Is there a reason that only 2GB works with the computer, and not 4? It may just be rotten luck, but I am unsure.

I came home to find out my computer had been fried, well our home computer. My brother told me the news. He said while it was on it made a popping noise and some smoke came out. I know some things about computers, the most in my household but not enough to know how to fix or build a computer. I figure it's fried though. I called a few pc repair stores and a few even said they have dealt with emachines before. They said usually when the power supply goes out it takes out the motherboard. So after calling about six or so stores, my cheapest price on replacing both the power supply and motherboard with labor was $150. My first question is, is that a reasonable price? Or should i look elsewhere and maybe even try learning how to put it in myself? So i thought well I?m putting that much into an old machine, bought in 2002, maybe i should put in double that and i can get a better machine. The most i could probably put into it is $400. If anything in my old pc is usable i could even use them and of course my monitor. Looking through Google there are so many places that sell parts and already built pcs. There?s stores to and eBay. So it?s pretty hectic. If I do fix what I have now and its under $100 I can do it soon. If I have to spend $400 then I may have to wait til February because of finical issues. I really don?t want to wait til February but if I did order parts online I?d have to wait anyway. Below is the specs of my emachine, well what I could find. Any advice ... Read more

A:first computer fried, so looking into a custom built one

Do you... game by any chance? Judging by your old machine probably not, but thought I might as well ask.

Here's a great system that will not only be faster than your eMachines, but upgradeable (new AM2 socket and PCI-E x16, DDR2) and cheap (but not cheap in quality).
It's a nice Gigabyte board, that's MicroATX, uses the AM2 socket, DDR2 ram (four banks, up to 16GB), and has a nice PCI-E x16 slot for later graphics expansion. It has good onboard audio (8 channels) and graphics (excellent for office use, not good in games; but it can be upgraded due to the PCI-E x16 slot).

Let's see, so far 74.99$ + 6.13$ = 81.12$.

This is an excellent budget CPU. At 1.6GHz is may *seem* slow, but it is NOT slow at all. Again, great for office use, and if overclocked (like I have mine, at 2.16GHz) good for even gaming. Not only that, but is 64 bit.

Now it's 43.00$ + 0.00$, so that's 43$, add it to the mobo and we're up to 124.12$.

AMAZING ram. It's a bit slow compared to more high-end models (DDR2 533 vs. DDR2 800), but again for office use and non-hardcore gaming it's fine. It's 2 sticks of 256MB running in dual channel, which is faster than 1 stick of 512MB in single channel. 512MB should be fine for office work, and O.K. fo... Read more

Nvidia GeForce 7800 GT
4x256MB (1GB) DDR-333 RAM

My current RAM configuration is terrible. 4 slots, all 256MB DDR-333. 1 GB. I would like to reach 2GB+. Now that RAM is affordable, I'm about ready to purchase some more. But I need help.

Abit's official website on my motherboard says:
"Four 184-pin DIMM sockets (Un-buffered Non-ECC DIMM) Dual Channel DDR 400/333/266 (Max. 8GB)". Click to expand...

Does this mean I'll be able to fill 2 slots with 1GB DDR-400's each, and the other 2 my 256 DDR-333's? I'm unsure if mixing types like that would work.

Also, quick question about CPU's. I have a Socket 939 motherboard, and I'd like my CPU's clock speed to go up. There aren't many other processors that are higher than 2.1GHz for Socket 939 (but if there are they're usually cheap)... so do you recommend I try to learn how to overclock or try to save up for a whole new motherboard? I know my setup is somewhat out-of-date.

I have a custom built computer I put together in 2011.  It didn't have problems until 6 months ago.  The computer will freeze at random times after streaming music from iheartradio, watching youtube, or playing a video game.  When the computer freezes the sound turns into a blaring noise until I hard reset the thing.  I have tested running the computer with each RAM stick by itself and without the graphics card, and the problem still persists.  I have run chkdsk and still have not found anything that helps me pin point the issue.  What can I do to figure out what is causing the freezing issue?
Thanks for the help.

I get a BSOD at mostly random times. I've attached the files as per the posting instructions. Any help is appreciated.

Edit #1:
I ran driver verification - no BSOD occurred. Attached is the result of verifier /query.

A:BSOD - Custom Built Computer

Additional Information.

A small bit of history first:
The computer in question is a custom build that I had been using for around 5 years with no problems at all. I then gave it to my sister after a complete format, and she has started to experience many BSoD's with it. Please note that only the internal hardware is the same, she may be using external hardware (USB devices) that are different to what I was using, which I believe may be the problem here.

I did try running Driver Verifier, and the computer would not boot up. It would BSoD into an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Sometimes, I noticed the computer would not even get past POST. It would finish all the memory tests, then just restart.

I have attached the entire folder of the SF Diagnostic Tool. If anyone could help shed some light on why I am receiving these BSoD's and how to fix it, I would really appreciate it.

A:Various BSoD's on Custom Built Computer

Hi aommaster.

Apparently the BSODs are seeming to be some sort of driver fault, but the failing driver/s are not showing up in the crash dumps.

This message occurs if kernel code attempts to close or reference a handle
that is not a valid handle. Only invalid or protected handles passed to NtClose
will cause this bugcheck, unless bad handle detection is enabled.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
Enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Hey everyone,
This is my first post on the forums, so I don't know if this is a bad question or not. I have a custom built computer that has never worked. When I first got it it would never POST or boot at all. It sounds like it is working, but nothing comes up on the screen. I have tried almost everything. I returned the motherboard three times and it tested OK everytime. I also replaced the power supply with a 650 watt Ultra Power Supply. Still nothing. Here are the specs:

AMD 3000+ Dual Core CPU

Asus A8N-SLI Motherboard

1 GB Corsair RAM

EVGA 7300 Video Card

SeaGate 120 GB SATA HDD

If you need anymore specifics, let me know. I will be glad to look them up again. I have booted it up a few times by luck, but it managed to lock up within 10 minutes of it turning on. I can also boot it up when I reset the CMOS. Then it will boot up. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Custom Built Computer Will Not POST

Load it with Fail-safe opinion.

You should set your A8N-SLI PCI - X small card (dual mode change to single mode)

I dont know about your ram... I think A8N-SLI only support DDR2.

Hey Everyone,
I just recently built a computer from a local computer store "Thrift King". The computer was meant for liquid Simulation and Highly Intense Graphics design and of course a few video games
Since the day I brought it home I have been getting random BSOD and also some random restarts. The computer would be running fine, then it would just flash to blank screen and restart. Sometimes after my BSOD my keyboard (usb) is not readable and so I must reset as I need to input a password at windows login.
I took the machine in right away to have it looked at. They flashed my bios and updated a few drivers. Also I believe they changed the ram however I still get the issues. I was asked that if it happens to record all BSOD so that they can better pin point the issue. I would like to find the issue out myself so I can tell them what to fix. Last time I had them look at it I got the vibe that they weren't going to try there hardest and I also had to fight with them as they could not duplicate the BSOD. Anyways letís start with my system specs and I will also post the 10 BSOD I have recorded.

Computer Case - Antec 900 (comes with 4 fans installed)
Power Supply - 900w OCZ MODXSTREAM Power RE

A:Custom Built Computer - Multiple BSODS

The problems suggest power supply, motherboard, or memory problems - or perhaps just a bad connection.

What voltages are being reported for the power supply? You should find this information in the BIOS or you can use something like speedfan to obtain them.

edit: If you are overclocking, this could be the source of the trouble. Restore the system to all defaults in the BIOS.

I had Windows 8 Pro installed and noticed the problems starting. I then installed Windows 7 thinking it maybe software, but problems persisted. What faulty hardware could it be and what tests should I start running. Memtest, what hard drive test is there for the SSD where the OS is installed. Appreciate some help on this issue.

Okay, this is the problem im facing. Back in 2012 I bought windows 8 for 16 dollars from Microsoft online. I was using it on my laptop but it recently died. I talked to Microsoft to disable it on that pc and they did that. Now I have built a new computer. I am wondering on how to install it on there. When I downloaded the windows 8 installer and installed it on the usb it didn't properly install on the computer. It said drivers were not found and things like that. I then realized that it was just for updating from windows 7 and the others. After searching around on the web i found that i could use the windows 8.1 installer with a generic key but it doesn't seem to work anymore. It just says it cant connect to internet. I also dont have an optical drive on my pc so i cant use dvds. Now how can i install windows 8 on it. Anybody know?

BTW: I have windows xp on my ancient computer. That means that if i will have to do things that require higher windows versions, I will have to do it at my friends house.

I have a computer that I built a few years back and recently its performance has been absolutely terrible and borderline unusable. I have a fresh install of Windows 7 (32-bit) and I have included a full .txt file giving all the details of my hardware. I run the "gadget" that shows you your CPU and RAM usage and it seems like the processor is always working its butt off, even if the computer is doing nothing other than bringing up the right-click menu on the desktop. I am wondering which parts could possibly be causing this utterly horrific performance or if possibly it is just wear and tear over the years that have caused my hardware to function poorly. I recently upgraded my video card and RAM, but it made little to no difference. I primarily use the computer for gaming, but even browsing the internet or watching a low definition youtube video is very choppy and virtually unwatchable. Thank you in advance for your input!

First of all, let me say I consider myself somewhat of an expert in computers. I built this box from parts, set up a custom partitioning scheme, G:\ for program files, mounting a partition under my desktop etc. So two days ago I updated JRE (java). I don't know if that sparked the problems or not, but a few hours later my comp went down with a blue screen of death indicating hard drive problems STOP 0x0...77 (0xC0...185 0xC...185, 0x07D0F000).This happened a few times. When I try to reboot off the BSOD my comp doesnt see the main hard drive (the only one on a SATA cable, my second drive is on IDE with my CD ROM). When I take the power cord out then reboot I can boot normally. Since I can still boot normally, I am thinking this is not a hard drive issue but some sort of viral thing. Plus the system restores are wiped which is very symptopmatic of a virus. Plus the system really did hang whenever I ran a virus scanner. Now, normally I am very careful. I use two different browsers, keep my comp updated, dont click on anything suspiscious (and i am pretty paranoid about links) run 2 virus scanners and 2 adware blockers. So when I cold boot the box off a BSOD, It boots, no problem, then runs a little bit, but then hangs with a similar STOP 0x0...77 especially when it is doing something. It hung once when i was backing up my desktop (work) partition, it hung when I booted Opera from my quicklaunch, etc. What is strange is that the comp is also running slower. ... Read more

I recently built a computer and am getting BSOD's on a relatively frequent basis. After checking around I have no idea what the problem could be. This is the first build I have ever done.

Here is what I know:
Using WhoCrashed, it tells me that in 5/6 crashes it was related to ntoskrnl.exe, and in the 6th is was related to ntkrnlmp.exe

The BSOD's are not recurring, that is I will get one, then go back and do the same thing I was doing before, and it will be fine.

About a day after installing everything my integrated wi-fi card stopped working, I shrugged it off to a faulty antennae, and went and got a Netgear WNDA 3100v2 Wireless dual band adapter (it is faster and holds a signal better anyways). Not sure if it is related to the BSOD's.

Any other questions feel free to ask, attached are the dump files and system health report as required by the forum, as well as the screen shot of the WhoCrashed report.

For system specs look at my profile or feel free to ask. Thanks!

EDIT: Also forgot to add that I am running Windows 64-bit and it is an OEM, everything was installed in the past 4-5 days when I took them out of the box, and this is the only OS I have installed on the system.

Also I tried to run the windows repair program of the OS disc and it was not compatible, not sure if that is due to OEM or related to the problem.

You will either need to uninstall these drivers and then install the latest version or perform a clean installation of them.
The following drivers need to be updated:

These drivers can be found by searching them in Google and then finding the associated software or driver. Finally, find the latest version of this driver or software and download and install it. Some of the drivers may also be found here (if the driver says 'Windows Update' simply make sure all Windows Updates are installed).

You should also update any other drivers you can think of including graphics, audio, chipset, SSD etc.
You have Norton installed, is that correct? At least to test, uninstall it and install MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) instead.

Please also uninstall any other Symantec products you have including Endpoint and Ghost as some of your dumps point toward Symantec drivers.

Hi there! So about half a year ago, my dad decided to give me the money to build my own PC. So I bought all the parts and my dad and his friend put it together for me (I'm terrible with handling hardware).
It works great! It runs games really well, is really fast, and all that nonsense. (at least compared to the old laptops I used to use)
Here are the parts I used for this.
Except I always have an error of some kind every single day. Usually it's just the Windows 10 "blue screen" with the sad smiley face with the accompanying error message but sometimes I get random stuff happen after booting up. These are always minor things that never heavily affect anything, and always get fixed with a quick reset, but I still worry that this isn't something that should be happening and I want to see if there's something wrong with something and if I should get it fixed before it gets worse.

I've tried reformatting my computer, because my sister berated me when I asked if its because the hardware wasn't put together properly, telling me I probably just downloaded something suspicious, but I still get the errors.

It was suggested that it was probably my RAM, and I was instructed to run memtest, but it did not bring up any errors. Here's a picture of my memtest screen after 8 passes.

Okay right now i am on my laptop and it has no problems with the internet. We just reformatted the computer and installed the cd that came with the motherboard(the drivers). Also I don't know if I am supposed to set up a network wizard. The problem I have is with the the custom built computer. So when I try to download google chrome or anything else it takes forever. Google chrome is taking up to 9 hours to download. Firefox setup is downloading and it says it will take 42 seconds and it wont move from that. Seems very slow also I am using RaLink wireless LAN card RT3062. Also I tried to do a speed test and speedtest.net it didn't work. I am using verizon frontier. Thanks for help in advance.

EDIT: the mother board is a Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H

Hey all, like the title says my new custom built computer is randominly locking up. Either when I'm playing a game, surfing the web, watching a movie, or sometimes when I'm not doing anything and its just on.

Here's a quick look at the stats:

Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200 RPM Internal Hard Drive

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor

ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

EVGA GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 256-bit GDDR3

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack

I did buy 4 gigs of RAM but they sent me DDR2 instead of DDR3. So I went to the store and picked up the only thing I could find. 2 gigs of DDR3 RAM. The RAM is the only thing I can think of that is causing the computer to lock up so randomly. But if anyone has any idea as to what could be causing it lock I'd be very great full.


A:Custom built computer locks for no apparent reason

What is the brand and model of that 2 gigs of RAM you ended up installing? Perhaps it isn't compatible with the Asus motherboard or maybe the RAM voltage needs to be changed from the default motherboard voltage.
