Several Issues with my PC :( - Page 4

post #31 of 34
As you mentioned you recently got a new motherboard, have you updated to the latest bios from ASUS'website? I would do a trial and error on most of the components that you think could be a issue. Power draw can sometimes be the key to a lot of things, what OS are you running? Try a different driver? Can you try the card in a friends computer?

I'm not sure if removing one HDD which contains some programs on will affect the system setup - anyone know if it will be fine when I re-plug it back in?

I have completely tried every driver, none offer any differences. The BIOS is dodgy on the newer one, so I've stuck with 1903. Trying the GPU in another gaming PC isn't an option, unfortunately and it isn't such a good test in an old machine with crappy specs.

if they are just simply running stand alone and not in RAID it should not be a big deal unplugging them and just boot with the ssd.

edit: have a read . . .

Right so I've done absolutely nothing since I last contributed to the conversation. When I watch YouTube videos, the fullscreen option just causes the video to move to the top left of the screen, not resizing and the rest of the screen stays black.

ARGGHHHHH!!!!
