  2. Hi folks Back again with a question about soldering usb ports onto motherboard . New ones have pins that when placed underboard do not poke through the board like old ones. Just finish a wee bit less than flush with board surface. Would it be ok to solder a bit of solid copper wire onto the pins to lengthen them prior to soldering ?

    I had some problems with malware bytes and once it was fixed it found nothing.
  5. @Dave, I have bypassed the power switch. Runs turns off etc etc. It doesn't even shut down long enough for the PC fan to stop spinning.
  6. Hi. Anytime I have strange issues like this I always try and boot the board outside of the case on a non-conductive surface and manually bypass the case switch by shorting the power on pins using a flathead screwdriver. This eliminates anything grounding out from the case or any potential issues with the switch. Just be careful if you go that route.
  7. Evening partygoers, I'm in the process of doing a pc build. The motherboard is a ASRock Fatal1ty z97. The cpu is an i5-4690k. The problem is that the computer (with just the mobo/fan and chip) will turn on and run for about 30 seconds, power down for about 3 seconds and starts back up and is the same cycle over and over. The psu is a 750w so I don't think that should be a problem with what little I have running. First I thought is might be RAM because I didn't realize I was running 1.5 in a 1.3. That didn't fix the issue so I went to the very basics. Yes, I did reset the bios several time but since the computer has never actually ran consistently trying to reset the bios was never a problem solver. I have I have tightened all screws and check for lose connections but there doesn't seem to be any issues. The motherboard IS used but my friend would never send me a board that had problems that he would have known about. I also called a local pc shop to see if they could run a POST but once they were given my 411 they said no. Thanks in advance.
  8. Nothing that i know of but basically remove the GPU, hold the fan in place and blow out the heatsink and fan with canned air. If it is covered in dust then this will help a ton. Also after you fire your PC back up leave the side off and make sure the fan on the GPU is running. If you have any software that came with the GPU that allows you to tinker with fan settings I would set it to MAX.
  9. I have 2 fans on my heat sink and I have a fan in the front and the back of the case (both of which came with it). Are there any guides about how to clean the heat sink and fan of a GPU? I've never done that before.

    If you run MBAM now does it find anything?

    That was a lot to absorb, Rkill found nothing, Ccleaner found a boatload of stuff, Adwcleaner found a few things and fixed, Avast, I'm lost. TDSSkiller was too complicated so I stopped at that, hope everything is ok, thanks much.
  12. You will likely need to take this apart and clean the heatsink and CPU fan. Also replace the thermal paste while you are in there and you should knock that CPU temp down by 20 degrees. That very well could be your issue. Oh GPU, not cpu.... That is running a little hot. What do you have for case cooling? I would at least clean up the heatsink and fan of the GPU. You may want to add a case fan if you do not have some.
  13. I just got another freeze-up and my GPU temp was at 75 C while everything else was at 50 or lower.

    You can try a restore point as a first attempt but likely the virus will remain. Odds are you did contract a drive by virus. I would close out of everything and run Rkill which will kill any rogue processes. Then run CCleaner on the reg and temp files. Run a Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner scan. I would download and run a AV like Avast and scan as well. Might even run a TDSSkiller just to be sure. You might have to nuke your restore points and recreate one after this as sometimes these like to hide there.
  15. What are you temps? You can use openhardwaremonitor to view them or speccy.

    I got this laptop on Dec 22 2018. everyday malware bytes runs a scan and up until yesterday it found nothing. Now I'm getting 36 & 37 potentially unwanted items being quarantined. Is there a virus on this laptop? I also noticed there was one with the registry. Can I get back to a few days ago with a system restore? I also noticed my chrome homepage was very different from what it looked like yesterday. I usually have 8 favorite tiles open today there were 3.
  17. Specs: OS - Win 10 CPU - Intel i5-7600k 3.80GHz GPU - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB MoBo - ROG Maximus Hero IX Memory - 16Gb SSD - 0.5 Gb HDD - 1 Tb Capture Card - Elgato HD60 Pro Hey guys, I am at a loss here for what to do. About a year and a half ago my PC started to randomly crash/freeze while I was playing games/streaming. I did a bunch of stress tests about a year ago, memtest, running stresses on CPU and GPU, and doing this with a test stream open and a game running, but I could never find a way to reliably recreate the problem. I eventually took my PC into a repair place where they apparently also did a bunch of stress tests, but they said they weren't able to recreate the issue either. Well, I stopped streaming, but the issue has still been persisting, though it wasn't often enough to worry about, however in the past few days I have crashed/frozen/BSOD at least 10 times while playing games or watching videos. I would really appreciate any help you guys could give me. Thanks!
  18. Yes sir, it was. Give that man a seegar.
  19. As long as you de-soldered them properly it should be fine. Just know that 5V Dc is going to those solder points so make sure that nothing comes into contact with the positive lead. If you close the laptop back up as it was before you shoudl be fine. You can always put a small piece of electrical tape over them if need be.
  20. Glad you got her lined out. Just guessing but was it a dual channel issue?
  21. Are you sure it doesnt say, "You have nothing scheduled on these 7 days."? If it doesnt and they do have scheduled tasks, have you tried an office repair?
  22. I am Danni working as a Network engineer at Field Engineer which is an online marketplace who connects businesses In other words field engineer is a Global Marketplace connecting Engineers and Businesses.
