My PC has become a dead zone in itself.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Alright, bear with me.

I installed 2 DIMMS of G.SKILL RAM this afternoon. Everything went smoothly after installation. After playing a match of BF3 my computer shut down with no BSOD and no message. Generally a PSU issue correct?

Anyways, this is my setup: I have a MacBook Air which gets my WiFi signal and I bridge the connection through Ethernet to my PC. This has always worked before and I've never had any problem getting any sort of connection.

Now after this restart the WiFi times out whenever I'm near my PC. It sits on the floor and my MacBook rests on top of the desk. The moment I step away from the PC I get my connection back. I've restarted my PC and the Air and have tested it with an iPhone and it has the exact same problem. I turn off the PC and I have connection.

What on earth could possibly be interrupting the signal? It can't be the RAM can it?

1st issue : Did you set in your bios the XMP profile ?
What is your power supply ?

2nd issue : It could be your house electricity system that is weak, and your computer suck too much power.

Yeah make sure you set XMP in your BIOs and make sure everything is running at the rated speeds , timings, and voltage.

Also, try hooking up your pc in a different room and different outlets.

If that's a no go try jumping your power supply to make sure it works. But when you jump it make sure nothing is plugged into it.

Unfortunately I don't know what an XMP profile is, however I reset the BIOS to default settings because I was having another issue. If you could lead me towards the setting I can find that out for you.

It's a SilverStone 750W.

Everything is plugged into a power bar, if that's any help to you.

Stranger still is that both Mac products don't work but a PC laptop in the same location does (mind you I've only tried one)

EDIT - Also try one stick at a time, if no go. Then try your old RAM.

As for the WiFi situation, id try different spots in your room/house to see if you get the same issue.

I believe the voltages and everything should be correct, as I basically just reset my BIOS and even manually set the DRAM voltage to 1.5 seeing as how that's what is needed and there is now no overclock on the CPU. I don't see anything relating to XMP.

The WiFi works everywhere else in the house, it's just on top of the computer where it doesn't.

I'll give it a shot with the RAM sticks.

UPDATE: On the board there are 4 DIMM slots. I have the two 4GB DIMMS on the 1st and 3rd. If I take out the 3rd, no issues. If I put it in, the problem persists.

Seems like a PSU issue to me, am I mistaken?

Also, this problem happens the MOMENT the computer is on, it's sitting on the BIOS screen so that rules out Windows.
