Hi there, can someone help me with my system. The problem is when im playing my CPU turns off and shows no display. I just built my CPU last December 2011. I gone to the shop to check the Video card and they said it was ok and i've seen it worked with their test unit. i even checked the bios and all was set to default and the display is set to PCI Express. When i click on the power all the fans turns on, the CPU fan, the Video card fan is working and i can also hear the HDD working but there is no display.
BTW here are the specs that i built
Intel Core i3 2100 3.1GHz
G.Skill RipJaws X (Dual) 2x2gb ddr3 1333 CL8
Power Color HD 6770 Vortex PCS+ 1gb/128bit ddr5
Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 500watts
that is the built that i have. I dont know what the problem is can someone please help.
when you say your CPU turns off do you mean the GPU?
do you overclock your system? when did the problem start? can you remember updating or changing anything prior to the issue starting?
Perhaps a windows restore might fix the issue or a driver rollback?
reseating components such as the GPU to see if it was simply loose?
try a different PCI slot on your MOBO?
if youve done all this i dont mean to patronise
make sure your GPU is getting enough power from your PSU (try a different PCI cable perhaps)
When it turns off it doesnt show any display but the system is still running. When i plug my DVI cord to the built-in Video of the motherboard it works but when plugged to my VC DVI it doesnt. When i bought the Videocard from the shop at first it didnt boot from their test PC, then the tech did something and it worked. then i was able to play from Dec 28 last year until last Jan 6 it started the same problem. and also before i brought the device to the shop i have it tested with my cousins computer, his has a VX550 PSU, 880GM-UD2H board and when he tested it, it didnt show any display also.
I dont OC my system, i just bought the unit last Dec. 26, 2011, i havent changed or update anything besides the OS updates. I even tried reseating the GPU and still it didnt work.
But what i was thinking, will the Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 500watts sufficient enough to run the system? My setup doesnt have much peripherals installed, only 1 HDD and 3 120 fans that came with the case.
ok i have it solved.... the Asrock h61m u3s3 VGA driver was the problem. the CD that came with the board doesnt have the VGA driver. so what i did was removed catalyst, installed the VGA driver [downloaded from their site] for the motherboard then installed back the 11.12 cat and it solved the problem.
