    Just bought a new PC https://www.komplett.no/product/1022125?noredirect=true#

    When i turned it on for the first time it wouldn't boot, the fan and GPU lights went on and then off immediately and then repeated that until i turned it off.

    After some testing i found out removing a RAM card fixed it, i turned it on and installed everything i wanted. Then when i played my first game it froze after a while (with annoying sound, not blue screen). I turned it off and on and the same problem as before came back, wouldn't boot...

    Fixed it by adding the RAM card back.

    Seems the booting problem wont be an issue if i can keep it from freezing so i suppose that is my main issue...
    Found alot of things i can try on google but alot of them are things im uncomfortable with trying unless im sure it might help.

    If you have just bought a new computer that is faulty , then send it back under warranty immediately

    I agree. Send the system back. If you start messing with it, you stand a very real chance of voiding your warranty.

    Was planning on trying to fix it and send it back on Monday if unsuccessful, since it is fairly inconvenient to send it back because of where i live (don't have a car atm). Also threw away all the packaging already ^^ But im assuming it might not be an easy fix or parts needs replacing... So no choice i suppose, tnx for the replies.

    As long as you understand that you messing with the system will probably void the warranty, you can try and fix it.
    The very first thing I would do would be to test the memory with memtest.
    http://www.memtest.org/
    Let memtest run for at least 1hr. If you find any errors, then you have found your problem.
    Next if you have windows installed, go to the support page for your motherboard. Download and install dual intelligent processor. That is a monitoring program. Check your temps and voltages; specifically cpu temp, 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values. Do this twice; once under a normal load and once while running prime95, OCCT, or other stress test. Let the stress test run for a minimum of 2min to stabilize temps and voltages.

    I did test with the internal windows 10 ram check thing, . which ran for about an hour and didn't find any issue but perhaps that one isn't good enough? Don't think i have an available flash drive or CD atm...

    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

    Normal:

    CPU core voltage: 0.656v

    12V: 11.904 V
    5V: 5.040 V
    3.3V: 3.328 V

    CPU system Agent Voltage: 1.224V

    Temperature:

    CPU 27c
    Motherboard: 26c
    PCH: 40c

    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

    OCCT:

    CPU core voltage: 1.264v

    12V: 11.904 V
    5V: 5.040 V
    3.3V: 3.328 V

    CPU system Agent Voltage: 1.232V

    Temperature:

    CPU 46c (OCCT reports that this number is 58c)
    Motherboard: 26c
    PCH: 40c


    I noticed the cpu is overclocked by 16.5% when stresstesting.
    The cpu mhz also seem to spike alot, going from between 800 to 4400 in a second sometimes. (when not stresstesting)
    Not sure if that's relevant or not...

    I tested some games earlier and had no freezes, not been any since i uninstalled a ton of programs yesterday for troubleshooting. Gonna test some more and see what happens :p

    That is turbo boost; normal.
    I would really use memtest rather than the windows program. Flash drives are incredibly cheap; an 8gig flash drive is less than $6 AND is very useful.

    I do notice that there are a LOT of bios updates that address memory and stability issues. Again check with the seller prior to updating any bios.
