Did the case come with standoffs and are they in the correct places? Did you try to build this outside the case?
I've purchased one game from them and they sent me the code but it was through Origin. I also could have bought a physical copy.
No, it's BF4. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_3?url=search-alias%3Dvideogames&field-keywords=bf4&sprefix=bf4%2Caps%2C262
The offer is good till June 3rd.
I haven't used it for a year or two but Slimdrivers worked good.
Is the power supply switch turned on?
I've had many problems with FedEx. They have gotten better over the last few years. At work I usually request UPS when I have to order something.
You don't have any ram listed.
Somewhere on your pc there should be a tag with the key on it.
Another thing to keep in mind is the weight of it once you get the oil in the fish tank. It won't be very easy to move.
You don't have a part list.
Do you need a keyboard, mouse, monitor, os?
Your part list is private.
You don't need to buy a cpu cooler unless you're going to overclock. As for an os you'll either have to buy Windows 7 or 8 or run one of the free Linux versions.
I use the free MWB with my antivirus.
I use Avast but Avira and AVG are good. Plus they all have free versions.
If my memory is correct, the hard drive won't work because it is setup with your old motherboard. I think you will have to reinstall the os to get it to work with the new motherboard.
Have you tried the drive in another pc?
If you went with an AMD cpu and motherboard you could save some money.
Avast and AVG make antivirus for Linux.
When you built it on the cardboard did you have it fully assembled or just the cpu with the fan plugged in? If you didn't have it fully assembled start hooking things back up. Start with one stick of ram and see what happens, then the next. Add the video card, the gpu etc.
I would try disconnecting one thing at a time and see if it will run.
Either one of two things is happening, you're not getting power to the pc or there is a short in the pc pulling down the psu. Have you tried a different outlet and power cord?
Missing a standoff shouldn't hurt as long as nothing is shorted. Have you tried powering it up with the gpu removed, hdd disconnected, using one stick of ram, etc? Is your cpu/socket look ok, nothing damaged?
Did you install your standoffs and are they in the correct place? Make sure all your connectors are fully seated. Did you try building this outside of the case?
I was thinking the cmos would have the info about the pc and it would be the board that was refurb. I could be wrong.
Try running this to see what's processes are running.
You have a bad link.
I downloaded a bunch of games off Humble Bundle and have been playing them so I haven't had a chance to get BF4. It should easily run it on medium settings and might be able to run it on high. Thanks.
Did you forget to install your standoffs?
Most people get a tier 1 or 2.
Do you have both the 24 pin and 4 pin power connected to the motherboard?
It could cause the problem. You should try and clean it up. Here's a link to a forum discussion about this. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/257811-28-thermal-paste
I'm going to ask the obvious, is the power supply switch on? Did you install the standoffs and are they in the correct place? Do you have the power on wires connected to the right place on the motherboard? Have you tried starting it with a paper clip or something like that instead of using the power switch? Did you assemble it outside the case first, if not that might be something to try.
I was only interested in the monitor.
Check this out.
Does anyone have any experience with this brand?
Enable driver verifier to see what driver is causing the problem.
Have you installed the stand offs and are they in the correct places?
Do you have the power cable plug into the gpu? Does your monitor need to be set to hdmi?
Do you have both the 24 pin and the 4 pin power connectors hooked to the board?
Copper does have a small amount of resistance, so the longer a cable is the more line loss there is. Depending on the level of the signal and the frequency of the signal dictates the loss. I'm not familiar with DVI and the amount of loss but I'm guessing the longer the cable the resolution will begin to drop. I'm sure it's something you can Google.
I just use a pc to watch internet content (netflix, Hulu, etc.) on my tv. I have a tv tuner and antenna that I use with windows media center so my pc works as a dvr. Watching sports will be a problem if you used to watching espn since it's a pay channel. I'm not sure why you need the Roku boxes.
Tituzin, if you are having problems you should start a new post and tell us what your problem is and what you have done to try to resolve it.
Do you have a meter to check power supply voltages or an old supply that you could swap?
Try running Sysinternals Process Explorer. It does a more in depth job than task manager.
I'm not familiar with the board but there is a chance they could be black.
In all honesty I downloaded a bunch of games off Humble Bundle and have been playing them. It's done a good job on the older games but I haven't tried it on the newer ones. I'm guessing it should do a pretty good job on medium settings, it all depends on the game I suppose.
