  • Is my PSU going? GPU not working when connected?

    Up until last night my PC has been working relatively fine, albeit somewhat slower than usual. This morning when I went to turn on my computer I got no video display and all I would hear is the PSU fan whirling on and off aggresively about 5 or 6 times before settling down. After some trial and era I connected my monitor to my integrated graphics card opposed to my other and the display came back on. It's working now and the computer is just slightly fast too. The computer will not correctly start or display video when I'm plugged into my Nvidia GPU. Do you think my PSU is going, or something else? How do I fix this? Help very much appreciated.

  • Computer not loading past startup, sometimes no video?

    So I just replaced the processor and I think that is fine but now I'm having other issues. Now the video only shows up variably and it never loads past the windows startup screen. System restore has also failed. Safe mode will not load. There is no beeps on startup but I do hear a fan whirl a few times fast. I have no idea what the problem is.

  • Cleaned PC case, no display now, CPU possibly bad?

    So I cleaned out my PC case today, which involved removing my video card and the CPU heat sink/fan which the CPU was also apparently attached to (I didn't no this until I removed it).

    I put everything back together and hooked it up but now I cannot get any display. When I power it up all of the fans spin including the one on the motherboard and video card. Though after about 20 seconds the heatsink fan and the other fan connected to the motherboard stop running. If it matters I also feel the HDD spinning. I hear a single beep like sound when I power it up. I'm kind of lost here.

    Is it possible the CPU is not seated properly it's extremely clunky trying to get it to sit right with a heatsink attached on top. I bent a few of the gold pins too. Is it game over?

    Help much appreciated.

  • Clouds of Smoke and Stuttering! Help!?

    I own a 2005 V6 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it has been running fine until today. It has an oil leak though, so I added 5 quarts this morning. When I went to drive 2 hours later the car engine sounded like it was struggling to start a little. Then a huge plum of whitish smoke came out of the exhaust. While I drove it also came out quite thick. The car stutters off and on when I tried to accel too.

    Help?

    Thanks!

  • Math Refresher Courses Online?

    I'm taking college pre-calculus in a couple weeks and I feel like I am not adequately prepared. I casually slept my way through math in high-school so I don't have a very strong foundation. I need a course preferably free that I can take online to build up my skills. Take note, I am not clueless, just in need a solid review.

  • Cut a Chunk of My Index Finger, Need Advice!?

    Well I accidentally cut, well more scraped, a chunk of my index finger. It's quite deep, but the skin is still attached in a horrible flap fashion. I provided a link to a picture (don't worry it's not bad looking). What should I do to treat this? Should I go to the hospital for any reason, like stiches, I don't want it to look terrible after healing.

    I know I know you aren't doctors, I just need some friendly "opinions".
