Alright so first thing is i replaced my cpu and mobo with a cpu a 8350 fx am3+ and a 970 pro gaming aura. My rig was running fine but then i think my power supply surged and it killed my cpu for sure which amd replaced no issue but i power on with my new supply and get no display. So i swapped my ram(got a ram error at first) and still no display. i then sent out my mobo and they reset the bios and said it tested fine. So i then replaced my gpu, harddrive and power supply because i was out of ideas and still no display there is a solid red led at the bottom but its unmarked unlike the other red led. there are no beeps playing and i cannot figure out what is going on. I also changed to a low end GPU to see if maybe there wasnt enough power to get the other gpu going since it was high end but still same issue every time, no display. I at this point thinking something is going on with the bios, but i literally go no display at any point when i power on, i reseated the cpu and same issue and made sure everything was plugged in. please i havent had a working computer for 4 months and i really need it any help would be amazing thank you.
My gaming machine had it for 2 years custom made turns off and back on every 3 seconds without beep sound or it stays on with nothing in the monitor only after the days when the CPU usage is too high 90-100% and happens every after 4-5 days, every time I turn the machine off for the day I switch it back on to check if it will stay on or go off and on and if it does I switch the power off from the back and unplug the power cable 'kettle cable' for the night and the following day it turns on fine after I plug the power cable and switch the machine on from the back.
What might be causing this? Kettle cable needs replacing, PSU needs replacing, PSU needs a higher Watt than '850W 80 PLUS BRONZE' or others
I would appreciate your help and support.
yesterday my girlfriend tried to reset our laptop because she was having some difficulties with Windows 10. Now whenever I turn it on "An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system." comes up. I've tried to restart it just like it says at the bottom but it doesn't do much. Restarts the laptop but it keeps coming back to that page. I have no clue how to deal with this. Also, Windows 10 was an update of our old system and I don't have the CD for the old one anymore.
Whenever I try to install any OS on this HP Pavilion dm4-3170se laptop it says that a required drive partition is missing and the internal hard drive does not show up as a place to install the OS. When I use gparted on a live Linux distro my hardrive shows up however with 500gb of space. But I can't install anything on it and windows nor ubuntu will install on the hardrive. Please help I am really fed up with this thing. I've been at it for over a month now. I have more pictures and can answer more info if needed. I consider myself decently computer savi and have more than a few computer programming and engineer classes under my belt from college.
