Afternoon all! I hope you are well.
In a moment of interest earlier I tried to connect my PC to my Surface Pro to use as an extension of the PC's desktop.
It works! Huzzah! Liking the idea of having a 2nd screen whilst working from home.
Then, failure strikes. I open a Chrome browser window...
It was very quick when I actually managed to get a boot up. I found the culprit in the end. A bent pin on the chip! possibly manufacturing issue more likely to be hamfisted user error which both would and would not surprise me.
Thank you all for the support trying to get this working. It is up...
I haven't yet as I was trying to avoid a full strip down of the rest of the case but this might be the only option. I have plugged in the whole old setup and it turns on straight away.
I can hear the new mobo making a slight squeal like it is getting power, this one has no lights on it to...
I have tried most combinations it literally doesn't kick in at all. No fans spin and no beeps. Including the PSU fans.
But if I put the q6600 bundle back in it starts up.
Could it be that the PSU can't power this tiny matx board?!
Just to update the guys at OCuK flashed and returned with no fuss and some more sweeties....winner winner. But I need more help I am afraid...
I put it all together and still it will not boot. I hear a minor electrical whine when it has power (it did this before the bios flash) but nothing.
Rather unfortunately I have to send it back next week. DPD shipping is all well and good but I need a computer to print the label! :-)
Hoping the guys will throw in some more paste if I ask nicely as well.
Just an update for people if they are looking to don't be same bundle. This mini needs a bios update to work with this chip. It is not shipped with the updated bios. Unfortunately unless you have a ryzen 7 or a friendly local computer shop to help then you have to return to ocuk for the flash...
I think so, next upgrade will only be when the alternative is throwing the thing out of the window through frustration! :)
Thank you for the swift responses and help. Order being placed now.
Also editing thread title for benefit of others searching for a £350 upgrade.
Ahh ok thank you I will amend. How about this, I think it looks about as good as it can for £350.
My basket at Overclockers UK:
1 x Gigabyte GA-AB350M-Gaming 3 AMD B350 (Socket AM4) DDR4 Micro ATX Motherboard= £87.95
1 x LG 24x DVDRW SATA Rewriter - OEM (GH24NSD0)= £13.99
1 x AMD Ryzen 5...
Good point thanks, yes I try to get the most out of hardware nowadays! :)
Out of interest are the clock speeds on RAM really that different? I didn't want to go slowest to save a few quid but also don't think I will see the benefit of top shelf RAM especially if I am not OC'ing.
Could I please check the following upgrade build prior to ordering please?
I already have an SSD + HDD and an old HD 6850 GPU, case etc should be no issue to reuse. No real gaming I am mainly browsing and occasional music production. Not planning to OC.
Currently using a Q6600...
Indeed it does, I have tried lots of different options to clone but now I think the source disc has an error it cannot get past. chkdsk finds nothing. I am going to persevere with another machine as a test bench see what happens make sure it isn't the ssd at fault.
After that I will back up...
I have recently bought an SSD for a machine and I am trying to clone the existing HD.
I was advised in gen hardware to try Macrium Reflect.
I have followed the web tutorial and found youtube advice from them however I am hitting a problem.
I get an error code and the...
