  3. Just wanted to give an update on what actually happened. So, a couple days ago this same exact thing happen. What caused it though was my roommate accidently knocking my PC's power cord from the wall outlet, and of course my PC was on, and so it forced it to shut off. Just like last time, my PC wouldn't turn on and respond. So I went back through, checked all my parts, power supply, etc. Well the next day I AGAIN turned it into Geek Squad to see if they can figure it out. The guy went through a few tests, nothing worked. So he decided just to take out my motherboard's coin-cell battery to let all the charge out of the system. Well wammy, it worked. Once he put everything back together, she started up again. So we figured what's probably happening is when my PC gets forced to shut off (like unplugging it, messing with the breaker box, etc) for some reason the motherboard will have a shit ton of electrical charge and so it doesn't want to respond or turn on till it's drained. So if this ever happens again, I can either remove the coin-cell battery for a bit, or let the computer rest for a few days. @Sandy

  7. All good. Yeah, the guys at Geek Squad said the same thing. Just didn't know if anyone here might have any idea.. Haha I swear I'm not lying, the motherboard just straight up didn't work for about 5 days. But hopefully it's all good from now on.
  8. Yeah, that's what me and all my friends think too. Just weird that it sounded like it was fried for like 5 days, then started working again? Idk, hopefully it doesn't happen again though lol
  9. Honestly I don't think so, I mean it could be possible? But besides unplugging and plugging everything back in, I didn't mess with the switches at all. Then 5 days later it just started working again. I haven't logged into bios since it was taken into Geek Squad, but I dont remember it saying that when they logged into bios. It did automatically log into bios when it finally started working again, then they had to change the launch format to be able to launch my windows back up. But since then I haven't had to log into bios. Edit: I also tried my backup (which I know works)/extra power supply from my old PC when all this started happening. I unplugged my current power supply from the motherboard, plugged the old one in, and it still didn't turn on from using the other power supply.
  10. I will say I didn't try each individual part. The only 2 in specific I tried was my power supply, and my graphics card. But one of the first things I did do was take out each part (besides CPU), and put them all back in, and still nothing. Then it sat for about 5 days, kept trying and it wouldn't turn on (not even my RGB fans, which even if something was messed up with my RAM, wouldn't the fans still come on?). Then after 5 days, it just randomly turned on. Geek Squad tested all my parts and said all my parts were good. Edit: My entire system didn't turn on was the problem, making it seem like the motherboard was fried, but then 5 days later it turned on
  11. Hello gamers, So I know there's a lot more people on here who knows a lot more about PC's than me or any of my friends, so I have a question. Long story short, my PC was working fine one night, and then the next night and next 5-6 days after, it wouldn't turn on. Motherboard wouldn't respond, nothing. The only thing I could think of was the that same day where I was trying to get on and play, my dad and I were doing remodels on my new house. Due to the breaker box not being labeled correctly, and us having to disable some power, we had to flip on and off almost every breaker in the house. My PC was plugged into technically 2 surge protectors, one actually in the outlet, and then a power strip surge protector, while it was also off the whole time. (FYI, my roommate's PC was plugged in too and his has been absolutely fine) Then that night, I tried to get on and game with some friends, and my PC wouldn't turn on. Had a friend come over to help, pretty much we tried different outlets (yes all of them were getting power), unplugged everything from my PC, plugged it back in, tried my extra power supply I had, tried "draining the power out of my PC", then plugging it back in, and nothing. My RGB fans wouldn't turn on, nothing. Pretty much sounded like my motherboard was fried because nothing would respond to me hitting the power button. I ended up getting an appointment setup with Geek Squad to see what they could do. Every day till that appointment, I'd trying to turn on my PC a few times, and nothing. Then, the exact day of my appointment, my PC actually kicked on.... I plugged everything back into it, and it wouldn't boot up BIOS or anything. So, I still took it to Geek Squad. They were able to boot it into BIOS (I may have just been doing it wrong or something?), and then later on they were able to launch Windows. They tested all my parts, and everything was working fine. They couldn't explain to me why it just didn't work for 5-6 days like it was. Just curious if anyone here has any idea to why this happened. Not sure if my PC just got overloaded or underloaded with power or something and needed a break? I have no idea. Obviously I don't want this to happen to my PC again lol, it was kind of a boring 5 days without being able to game on my PC haha.

    Twitch

    Hey guys! I've officially returned back from my deployment in Southeast Asia with the Air Force. While I was deployed, I already ordered parts for my new PC, and in doing that, I decided I wanted to start streaming on Twitch a lot more. Due to my work schedule and such, I don't really have a set schedule on when I'll be streaming yet (may make one in the near future). I just wanted to make a post and inform ya'll that if anyone wants to watch my future streams/give some advice, feel free to do so. I'll mostly be streaming Dead By Daylight, but I'll probably also stream other games like Rocket League, Among Us, Phasmophobia, and etc. If anyone else on here streams, feel free to give me your link and I'll give you a follow and watch when I am able to! https://twitch.tv/itsironic Hope everyone is doing well!

    LOA coming up

    My deployment was actually cut a little short than expected. I will be back in the states here in a few days! I'll have to "quarinteen" for 2 weeks, so expect me to be pretty active and hit me up if ya'll want to game!

    LOA coming up

    What's up ya'll, I know I'm not as active in the discord or servers anymore (mainly because I only use discord to talk with friends and play games with them, and the servers are... well you know), but just wanted to let ya'll know later next month, I am getting deployed and going to be gone for around 6-8 months. I'm gonna bring my laptop (might buy a new one to be honest), but the internet will be limited and not sure online gaming will be that available for me to do. Hope ya'll are doing great, and see ya'll in the near future!
