PC no Boot
« on: December 04, 2012, 10:32:36 PM »
My computer wasn't acting right tonbight so I rebooted.  Now it won't boot up at all.  Will give it good cleaning.  Hopefully something minor.

Post if I can help. Does any of the lights come on inside on the motherboard? Any fans or post screens? Unplug it, turn the switch off. Wait 10 mins or so and plug it back in then turn switch back on.

Thank you.  It appears maybe heat related.  I took the cover off last night and let it set.  It fired right up this morning so I'm going to give it a good cleaning and make sure all fans are working.

Rgr that. Do you have EVGA Precision installed and running your video card fan? If not do it. You may have to register on EVGA website to download it but it will save your video card.

Yep, up and running :thumbsup: so far so good.  I think it was mostly just dust and being in a confined space (recently relocated).

Im not real sure that the program is doing anything significant.  It looks like some of the features are not available to the GTX260.  Also, it's hard to evaluate performance because I can only get it to save the most 5 minutes worth of history.

What is considered an acceptable frame rate?  I have it set at 60.  Using the ASUS tool I am able To chanGe performance from Energy Saving to Turbo (5 different settings).  Using the Black Screen of Death (I believe that what it's called), I can get 5-20 FPS in energy mode and 45-60 in Turbo mode.

I had you get EVGA Precision to do fan control. I wouldn't use any software for power management. Turn Power Mode in Windows to Performance. You can use the other program if you want, in Turbo mode.
