    Please note the DVD install must match the BIOS - MBR/BIOS or UEFI (modern).


    So hers says UEFI p1.60, so i just choose that while installing?

    and if the CPU doesn't support x86-64 (or AMD64) you have to use x86 version.


    Hers is an Intel Pentium G3220, do you know if that supports 64?


    Thanks for the replies

  2. 1. Can i just install Win 10 over Win 7 on SSD? or does SSD require a special way to delete it?


    2. Can Win 10 OEM CD be used again? Like a fresh install


    3. Can Win 10 OEM CD be used on 2 different computers? Probably not.


    Mum's PC has a virus that i cant get rid of, its called onesearch.org and its over-taken all the web certificates so there's no internet. Cant update to the free win 10 anyway since her Win 7 is pirated

  3. There was an update available version 1903

    I restarted it to apply and got a BSOD with the stop code: CLOCK WATCHDOG TIMEOUT
    Restarted again and it says Updates available version 1903, Status: Getting things ready - 100%
    That might be a very old update? If so its a pirated version. I dont see a watermark and am able to change the background theme

    whats the best way to install the free win 10? burn it to dvd and overwrite the old one?

  4. This is my second Asus DG that died.


    All of a sudden my display turned off i was wearing headphones and so i only noticed loud fan noises when display turned off.
    My GPU 0db fan was on, so i turned 0db off. The GPU fans are going now and the GPU works
    I think my GPU was overheating and killed the sound card cause its sitting very close, directly above it.

    Should i get a USB sound card? I dont think i have enough USB ports for everything
    Im using Audio Technica M50x headphones

  5. Out of the list above thanks Dasa, i chose a little from "AMD gamer and AMD value gamer.

  6. In the bios, try and find options for "Spread Spectrum" and try to enable


    This fixed it., It was either that or a bad OC.

    I found in the bios options for increasing the CPU power from 100% 120% 130% 140% for OCing.

    I changed it to 130% even tho i used asus MB auto OC you think it would of changed that itself.

    Enabled Spread Spectrum

    Works properly now, ty


    (Edit: there is still a buzzing noise in the sound when i play games though, from sound card being too close to gpu i s'pose)

  7. The GPU driver is upto date

    This is what it says in the manual

    2 x PCI-e 2.0 x16 slots (single at x16 or dual at x8 / x8 mode)
    1 x PCI- e 2.0 x16 slot [black] (max. at 4x mode, complatible with PCIe x1 and x4 devices)

    2 x PCI-e 2.0 x1 slots

    *The PCIe x16_3 slot shares bandwidth with PCIe x1_1 slot, PCIe x1_2 slot, USB3)34 and eSATA. The PCIe x16)3 default setting is in x1 mode

  8. Yeah both mobo cords were in.

    I got it working. I forgot I have another pci-e slot which i should of tried 7850 in 1st before buying a new card, but anyway the 7850 doesnt work in that either. The 1060 does however. So thats weird lol. Maybe the GPU fried the slot when it died idk. I had long time PSU problem with my old one. Ill still test if 7850 works on mums PC tho some time.


    Im happy i dont have to update the mobo/cpu/ram combo yet.

  9. u mean change the power cord running from psu to gfx? no, ATX let me research what this is

    i repluged the power cord going to the mobo, noticed the gpu card on light now stays on even with the pc turned off. Before it was only on when the pc started. still no display. Ive tried HDMI and the old big thing, The big thing works when i plug it into cpu gfx

  10. Alright, i just got the 1060, put it in annnnnnnnd..... shit, no picture just like my 7850 :/ so now im thinking the 7850 isnt dead... oh wait! i forgot the power cord to the gpu, annnnnnnndd.... shit, no picture just like my 7850 :/

    I guess i will take both gpu to my mums and test them on her pc, see where i go from there, prolly a faulty mobo at this point.
    I just bought a new PSU corsair 550x, i was running BF1 on that for a few days and it seemed to fix all my problems i had with my pc, still has. but then thats when my gfx "died"

  11. Looking to replace my dead 7850 i think it played BF1 on medium fairly decently.

    I dont really want to spend the money for the 1060, im thinking the 1050 would be similar to my 7850? So its kind of not future proof for very long.
    Maybe i should just pay the extra $100. Not interested in 1050 ti as its only $50 difference to 1060

    I also play Overwatch which isnt demanding
    Here are my picks:


    GIGABYTE 1050 2GB

    Asus 1060 OC 3GB

  12. Ah ok. some more weirdness just incase it changes anything:
    Stuff is getting worse. I was watching youtube, screen goes black, monitor says no HDMI signal, it turns off but i can hear the sound stilling playing but it cuts in and out almost like a memory problem maybe?
    Sometimes the screen comes back and everything is fine but other times it feels so sluggish i just reset PC.

    Was watching twitch and typed in chat, it got so slow i was watching what i typed come in about 30 secs after i typed it.
    Still PSU playing with monitor/memory? just checking if ideas have changed...
    like typing on twitch, that cant be a gfx problem could it?
