    Building a non-gaming rig.

    I had an MSI B450 M Plus AMD in mind.

    Building a non-gaming rig.

    I'm building a new rig which I'll use for general applications only. Need your opinion on the Ryzen 5 2400G processor with build in Radeon RX Vega II graphics. Thanks

    Solved Puzzling Phenomenon

    Since I moved to another 6-pin power source from the PSU, for the past few days the PC seemed to be booting OK. I'm going to mark this as "Solved". Thanks for all the help fellas.

    Solved Puzzling Phenomenon

    Update. I reviewed the specs of my video card (Gigabyte AMD Radeon R7 370) and found out that I have a high performance gamer GPU that is slightly overclocked. It has a Windforce 2X Cooling system that is temperature controlled. Spec states that its power consumption is 110W but the System...

    Solved Puzzling Phenomenon

    Not definite yet but I'm inclined to believe that the problem is associated with a malfunctioning GPU. Both fans are internally wired to the device and cannot be replaced with "off the market" fan. I'll continue to watch the fans and check their status when I hear the problem beeps.

    Solved Puzzling Phenomenon

    Aha! When I first started the PC this morning it produced the 1-long/3-short beep again and failed to boot. I cycled the PSU switch and started the device once more. I felt under the GPU to check if its cooling fans were spinning. I found one of the fans not spinning but after I touched it it...

    Model No. Corsair GS 600 Gaming I can't get the S/N nor the P/N without removing the device. However, the Corsair GS600 Website lists all the related specs. It has a three year warranty. MTBF is 100K hours. The only other load I have in the PC are two SATA Hard Drives, and two Optical Drives. In...

    Solved Puzzling Phenomenon

    I'm not giving up on this. The PC works fine most of the time except sometimes it will produce the one long- three short beeps and fails to boot. When that happens I turn off power and then back on to the PC and then it will boot fine. The GPU card, the PSU & the PCIe slot are still suspects...

    Solved Internal Speaker

    Sorry for the delay in responding. I was able to contact the MSI tech support and I got my answer. Apparently the internal post beep speaker is not used so I just remove it. However the motherboard have four "EZ Debug LEDs (one each for the CPU, DRAM, VGA, & BOOT) which were not shown on the...

    Solved Internal Speaker

    My new motherboard is an MSI X470 Gaming Pro Carbon. I built the rig myself and it's working good except for one minor thing. When I start the PC I don't hear the single "short beep" when it boots. I checked the board and found the speaker connected to the connector. Assuming that perhaps the...

    Solved Puzzling Phenomenon

    Davis McCarn: I've already done all that. I've seen a device that can be plugged into USB called External PCIe x 16 sold by Walmart for ten bucks. flavallee: The PSU is also one of my prime suspect. I've got a 600W Corsair in it. BTW, the PC started OK this morning with no problem.

    Solved Puzzling Phenomenon

    That's what's puzzling. When it makes the 1 long and 3 short beeps the PC seem to run OK except that the monitor does not work. But when I turn off the power switch in the back of the PC and turn it back on, then restart the PC, I hear the single short beep and the PC boots and runs OK even if I...

    Solved Puzzling Phenomenon

    At times when I first start my PC (Win 10 Home OS) I hear a "long beep followed by three short ones" Most of the time the PC boots OK. The beeps seem to indicate a problem associated with the video card or the PCIe x 16 slots. Ones the PC boots OK all systems appear and continue to run OK...

    PC Failed to Start

    One thing that I noticed but failed to report was that there was a red light in the middle of the board that was ON. I checked the User Guide and it was labeled "CPU LED" The Guide indicated that the LED Light goes ON if the CPU was malfunctioning.
