Problems with PC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I have quite a lot of problems but couldn't find a troubleshooting forum so I just posted here but if any you could find the correct forum for this question that would be great!


So let's start with shutting down, so sometimes when I try shut down my PC the power button on the case doesn't work and the button under the settings to shut it off doesn't work also. So I was going on LTT to explain this problem and then my PC just shut down, so the problem was a late shut down and when it was shutting down it took like 10 mins to shut down. This happens when everything starts getting glitchy since I've downloaded the latest Nvidia driver.

So when I do shut down my PC two lights are always on (this always has happen, even before the new GPU driver) one light is on the GPU its a white one, couldn't find it anywhere on the manual. And the light on the motherboard is the power on light which is in the picture below.

so on the bios/trident z RGB/CAM problems I contacted NZXT about that and currently working on it but before I contacted them I uninstalled the trident z RGB controller because it wasent working so when I went to reinstall it it said I need the lastest bios version, though without the trident Z RGB program the RAM is still working fine including the lighting. (So should I update my bios because ASUS has this like bios restore point thing)

I think you know my problem about the lastest nvidia driver and I'm just getting your opinion of should I uninstall it using DUU, wait for a new one, or if I uninstall it with DDU I should make a restore point.

CPU voltage
so when I OCed my 6700k I have to flip this switch on the motherboard, but that was just a test so I'm currently not OCing and was wondering if I should flip the switch back to normal, because sometimes when I'm on CPU Z or ASUS AI suite I see my 6700ks voltage go over 1.4volts and that's unsafe. (There is a pic below that has that part on the MB manual)



Sorry for the really confusing thread and if you could answer just one of my problems that would be great

Thanks

I would start with setting things back to normal. First I would uninstall the driver and install the previous one that was working. Then switch the OC switch back.

If it is a driver issue, it will likely be apparent once you roll back to a previous driver and the system works normally.

Sound like OS corrupted related problems to me.. there's no chance for a GPU driver to affect shut down...which, from what I can tell is happening cause of a process hanging up or being unresponsive..
I would start with a clean install of OS and see what happens from there...

Lights on Mobo / GPU are normal behavior...shows that the MB has current delivered to it and "ready"

Also before going ahead with the OS reinstall check in BIOS if the HDD / SSD is in AHCI mode...and check the power options in Control panel and make sure that the buttons are correctly defined there

Control Panel --> Hardware and Sound --> Power Options --> System Settings

I'll switch the overvolatge thing back

And before doing a clean install of windows I'll roll back the GPU driver just to make sure


Well I have a M.2 which has my windows 10 on it and a HDD so how would that work

Good idea, let us know how it goes.

You only have to install windows on your boot drive, the M.2. From there you will be able to manage your other drive.

When reinstalling windows you will have the option to select which drive you would like to install on. Make sure that everything that you want to save is not on the drive you are overwriting/deleting.

Just one more question, so if I do end up doing a clean install of windows do I have to save everything to a drive or will it be fine

If you do a clean install on your SSD, everything will be removed from it.

Will my HDD be affected at all, if I do do a clean install and I put all the info on anathor external HDD when I plug it back in how will all of that work will I just click on the program, and it will download or do I have to find the installer for each program, or could I just open but not download anything just go on the Web, redownload all of it and use the folder as a guide

You will have to reinstall all of your programs, whether that is through downloaded installers or install CDs that you have. The only programs that you will have will be the default programs from Windows.

Make sure that you have your CD Keys for any programs (Microsoft office, windows, games, etc.), as you will need them when downloading your software.

The main things that you will want to save are pictures, videos, game save files, music, etc.
