    Xonar Essence ST/X

    Do you think they will bring a whole new/updated range out (DG 2) along with the STX 2?

    Is this a PSU problem?

    I havnt checked the capacitors but, Its working back to normal now, i also didnt change the bios. I went to look for the bios battery and jumper, couldnt find it and couldnt be bother taking it all apart (at that moment) to see if it was behind the heatsink. Then later on, my headphone jack broke off and is stuck in the mobo sound output. Took out the gfx card to get to it easier from inside, didnt workout. (oh well, this gives me a reason now to get that Asus STX i want :D) I put gfx back in and gave the pc a spray over with canned air now its working But i already did all this same stuff a few weeks ago when it was playing up then aswell, so i dont know.

    It seems to be getting worse now, and that hold the power button down trick to drain the power isnt working anymore. Whats the best way to reset Bios? My manual says to "Load Optimized Defaults" I did that but its still the same (latest) Bios version. So that must be just for the Bios settings. Should i update it to an older bios vers. and then update it again back to the latest? or should i reset CMOS or something?

    I meant my power button, i dont have a reset button. I did that drain thing last night after i turned it off and it worked, it even flashed its blue light after 5 secs telling me it was drained. Turned it on just now and it works fine. Thanks So to stop me from having to do this all the time i reset bios and update it again?

    It happened again, i forgot to power drain after i turned it off, but i did this when it didnt turn on again: Switched off PSU Switched off Plug in wall, left it in. Held down reset to drain power Still didnt work. I havnt tried the reset of mobo bios yet, but i have reinserted the GPU and RAM recently. It was doing the same thing before i touched those. Maybe the adapter is abit stuffed
  8. Sometimes when i turn my PC on it doesnt start. When i take the plug out of the wall adapter and when i put it back in theres a spark where the plug goes into the adapter and the PC fires up from that spark...

    Done! Thanks Dasa! I wont switch the case tho, it has a pre-order status (cant wait, plus ill throw in some $ for her bday) She'd prefer a mini case but it was just too much for me to take in with the limited stock and understanding.. (frikkin PCIe/mini PCIe, SO-DIMM/U-DIMM, ATX/ITX/mini ITX/Micro ATX ahhhhh!!) She was going to buy a $545 with worse parts (1333 Ram, 500GB HDD, etc.) Awesome! Thanks again guys!
