      I need help building a pc. I was gonna buy a laptop to stream with my elgato requires atleast a i5 cpu I was gonna go past the recommendations and get something better. The laptops I was looking at are around 900. Pretty sure I can build a pc that's better for that price or am I wrong ???

    That power supply has problem. It only sends about .15 volts to your pc parts. So it's not giving them the power to turn them one. It is I believe a common problem for over half the psu that they made.

    i need a new 144h monitor.... ive tested so many things with it to run at 144hz. and for some unknown reason, when i run it at 144hz. it works fine, but then at random when i play a game or update my graphics driver, my monitor will just randomly go to a black screen with "no signal" and to fix it i need to literally switch to HDMI and then back again. idk why. but then again it could also be my DVI cable maybe... idk

    @Bitwit what i can tell you right now after watching the video its defiently a bios setting i cannot remember out of my head wich one it is..... a friend of mine had the same issue and it was a pain in figuring it out there is somewhere a setting in the bios that will make it work and give you the screen via display port instead of hdmi. he had an Asus rog crossfire 8 hero < i just cannot remember wich bios setting it was but i can asure you there is one that fixes that issue. i think it should be somwhere in the boot menu but iam not 100% sure.

    Heh, I thought I had the same problem, but in my case, the 6800XT wouldn't show signal, on a fresh build no windows, tried different riser and setting the speed to Gen 3 and 4, tried different DP cables, and then a random HDMI, and wouldn't you know it, for some odd reason DP doesn't show signal during the regular boot screen/sequence, HDMI works fine. WAT? xD

    (Tearing face off) Damned "cable" issues!!! I bought myself a Samsung G9 for Christmas and the OEM DP cable from Samsung was bad out of the box. So, I ordered a new Club 3D DP cable (VESA Cert'd) from A-store, and as soon as I plugged it in... Boom >>> Display! Now, I think the Samsung HDMi recently took a crap as well, but that was hooked to my work laptop dock so I just grabbed one of the old monitors and an old cable and connected that all off to the side of the G9. I have to pull it out and flip it so I can get to the back and replace the OEM HDMi, and all of this is a pain while I'm on crutches (Quad accident)! I will say that Samsung did replace the DP cable once I contacted them and explained all of the step I took to troubleshoot and validate the problems with the original DP cable. The replacement cable they sent will just be stored away as a backup... The G9 monitor is amazing, but the cables they ship them with??? The Jury is still out of them, but it isn't looking good!

I have a Samsung 50 inch 4k smart TV and I am using hdmi cable to connect to the pc but I have a green screen every time I turn on the pc it will disappear after loading the windows . this is the only 4k display I had and I tried from 10$ to 55$ 2.1 hdmi cables but I am always having the same problem If I used my old 1080ti or rx580 they will work perfectly , I tried with couple old 1080p monitors and they worked fine but all this monitors have just display cable .

    Here’a my rant re Corsair AX850i units. For the love of all that is holy avoid this particular PSU as it has a really super sensitive digital sensing stage. I’ve bought multiple units and I’ve had the relay clicking like mad with no POST. One unit totally blew its caps and let out the magic smoke. The surge ran through both the building breaker and my apartment breakers. Since then I’ve switched to EVGA P2 units and so far things have been good.

    those phanteks psu's only work with their own cables as in yo dont get to connect any other cables. but since you tried it with their own cables that probably isn't the only problem. it actually has pretty clear warnings about it in their documentation too. it's because of the weirdness that the dual mobo connection brings.

Everything Worked, even the his monitor. 1 Week later, we built his pc together and tested again, no video signal until i accidentdally swapped the monitor worked and the cause of that trouble..
