    PC turns off without warning

    My bois setting had Anti Surge enabled & every time my power had a little fluctuation the system powered off to protect itself even though it was perfectly safe to remain on. So yes, BIOS can make you're system power off just like it make's your system power off when you're CPU reaches a...

    USB & Sound Issue

    I will check the USB in the morning but I think you miss understood the sound issue. When I shut down my system or put it to sleep, my sound give's out a loud hiss. Shutting down this only happens for about 2 seconds then it stops & all is quiet. When putting it to sleep this happens for around...

    PC turns off without warning

    Can I just mention something that might be a factor for this problem. I live in a old house & in the area our lights dim randomly for a split second during the day. This is a power fluctuation & I have a 600W 80 Plus Silver & every time my lights used to dim my system would instantly lose power...

    USB & Sound Issue

    First problem is not always apparent as it randomly happens whenever it decides to happen & its always my mouse. When I turn my system on from cold boot, my mouse isn't working & from the looks of it because its a wired mouse no power. Only fix is to unplug & connect it back in again for it to...

    product key

    The key was a system builder license. Companies like Dell, Toshiba & Asus buy them at a fraction of the price as we do retail. But the key is locked to the hardware it is purchased for, normally the motherboard. So changing the hardware will require a re activation & because you can't resell...

    product key

    Probably because the Product key has been saved by it's previous owners or resold multiple times & microsoft has terminated the key. If a product key is openly visible then it's most likely been sold unless when you bought the pc, it clearly stated it comes with product key.

    New BSOD experience!

    Ok, right.. this might be a bit off but I uninstalled a few things & re installed them in case it was a bad install. I had noticed everything started to work normally, no lockups, no mass memory leaks & my desktop gadgets load up every time. Then I noticed I failed to install Avast Anti-virus. I...

    New BSOD experience!

    Right. I have had my HD3870 GPU in my system & it appeared to run ok but I didn't really play games as the GPU wouldn't cope so for general use it was all ok. So after putting back in my HD7850 & had a flash based game open it sorta crashed. Mouse cursor would not move but my keyboard, windows...
