Community Article PowerSpec G507 - Green screen crashes — Micro Center PowerSpec G507 - Green screen crashes JonN ✭ July 13 in PowerSpec I received my PowerSpec G507 (AMD Radeon 3600 processor and AMD RX 5700 GPU) desktop on 7/4/20 (actually purchased two).  One of the computers has had problems with the GPU as every once in a while it green screens and then restarts the system.  It has happened 7 times (in a little over 8 days) since I got it. 5 times I was playing a game called Destiny 2 and the other two times was when I brought up Chrome and the AMD Radeon Software.  The other G507 computer did receive a black screen the first day but once we updated the driver to 20.5.1 through the AMD Radeon Software it has been working fine. I have updated to the latest drivers (both 20.5.1 and 20.7.1) through the AMD Radeon Software but after getting four green screens in one day I followed the instructions on the Micro Center website and downloaded the DDU driver remover and removed the driver.  I installed the driver from the Micro Center website for the Radeon 5700 (20.1.3) and it worked great all day yesterday.  I was in game for close to 14 hours without a green screen.  Unfortunately, I had a green screen this morning when I brought up my browser - Chrome.   I have also updated to the latest Motherboard drivers for the ASRock B450M/AC.  I have not overclocked my CPU or GPU since it does not seem stable enough, besides it runs fast just like it is.    I chatted with someone on the Micro Center website and they directed me here.   I have been monitoring the GPU temp using the AMD Radeon software and it seems fine.  Any other suggestions? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSMichaelB admin July 13 JonN said: I received my PowerSpec G507 (AMD Radeon 3600 processor and AMD RX 5700 GPU) desktop on 7/4/20 (actually purchased two).  One of the computers has had problems with the GPU as every once in a while it green screens and then restarts the system.  It has happened 7 times (in a little over 8 days) since I got it. 5 times I was playing a game called Destiny 2 and the other two times was when I brought up Chrome and the AMD Radeon Software.  The other G507 computer did receive a black screen the first day but once we updated the driver to 20.5.1 through the AMD Radeon Software it has been working fine.

Welcome to the forum, @JonN, sorry to hear you're having issues with your PowerSpec G507. It's odd that reverting the driver down to 20.1.3 allowed you to use the system for so long without an issue, yet it presented itself again today. During that time, do you recall any updates that may have been performed? Can you double-check the version of the graphics driver to see if it updated? Lastly, I believe the G507 ships with Windows 10 1909. Can you attempt to update it to Windows 10 2004 and see if that helps at all? My initial thoughts is that WDDM (Windows Display Driver Model) might be corrupted, causing the graphics driver to break over time, or simply handling it improperly. Updating to Windows 10 2004 should get you a brand new version of WDDM as well to go with your GPU.  Here is a link to the update: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=799445.  If this fails, we may need to perform a clean installation of Windows 10 using the media creation tool: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10. This will rule out any OS corruption and other software issues, but I would use it as a last ditch effort as we'd like to try to avoid having to reinstall applications unless absolutely necessary. Let us know the results. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JonN ✭ July 13 Thank you for the quick response and welcoming me to the forum.  I checked the AMD Radeon software and the driver is still 20.1.3 and offers to upgrade to 20.7.1.  I did not update anything else after I removed the driver using the DDU driver remover and installed the 20.1.3 driver.  You are correct the G507 ships with Windows 10 1909 but I was not able to upgrade it to Windows 10 2004.  It gave the following:  This PC can't be upgraded to Window 10. Your PC settings aren't supported yet on this version of Window 10.  Microsoft is working to support your settings soon.  No action is needed.  Windows Update will offer this version of Windows 10 automatically when these settings are support. Do I need to perform a clean install like you suggested above? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin July 13 It's interesting that it gave you that error. A clean installation would be ideal as it would rule out any of the aforementioned corruption issues with WDDM and would rule out software entirely as the culprit. If you do go that route, be mindful that you'll need to reinstall your applications, so a data backup would be recommended if you have the means of doing so. In the meantime, I'll grab a G507 and see if I am presented with the same error when attempting to perform the in-place upgrade. The hardware configuration is definitely compatible with Windows 10 2004. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JonN ✭ July 13 I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 2004 a second time and got the same error.  If I do a clean install do I have to download and reinstall the games that I have added or does it just re install windows? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin July 14 JonN said: I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 2004 a second time and got the same error.  If I do a clean install do I have to download and reinstall the games that I have added or does it just re install windows? Correct, a clean installation will remove anything on the system including your games and personal folders/documents. If you have a means to backup your data to an external drive, I would recommend doing so to save you time from having to redownload everything.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JonN ✭ July 14 edited July 14 I will do it today.  What GPU driver should I install 20.1.3 or 20.7.1?  Also the link you gave me to reinstall Windows 10 is Windows 10 Pro or does it go by the key I will use? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin July 14 I would recommend trying the latest graphics driver as that will have the best optimizations for the newest video games. As for the installation, the tool should automatically determine the version you need during the download. The G507 shipped with Windows 10 Pro, so that should be fine. The Windows 10 license key is embedded in the board firmware so it will automatically activate Windows when a network connection is established after installation, so you shouldn't need to do much more other than download drivers and test your games. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JonN ✭ July 14 Sounds good, thank you, I will give it a try. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JonN ✭ July 14 I was able to do a clean install of Windows 10 Pro and it even installed 2004 like you wanted.  Not sure why it would not upgrade to it before though.  I believe I installed all the drivers for the Asrock motherboard and the Radeon RX 5700 gpu but the Device Manager is showing under Other devices - PIC Device (2) and PCI Encryption/Decryption Controller (1) with a ! next to it.  Not sure if I have given you enough information but what driver am I missing? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin July 15 JonN said: I was able to do a clean install of Windows 10 Pro and it even installed 2004 like you wanted.  Not sure why it would not upgrade to it before though.  I believe I installed all the drivers for the Asrock motherboard and the Radeon RX 5700 gpu but the Device Manager is showing under Other devices - PIC Device (2) and PCI Encryption/Decryption Controller (1) with a ! next to it.  Not sure if I have given you enough information but what driver am I missing?

Lets try something different. First, lets run DDU again. Make sure to select the option to disable automatic driver updates, so that it doesn't install a driver. After you reboot. I would like you to download the AMD drivers. Extract the package with 7zip then we'll do a manual update from Device Manager. Update driver software on the "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" then choose the option to browse, and direct it to the extracted folder. Let it find a driver only and not install Radeon package, and we'll see if the issue persists. This should tell us whether it's an issue with the GPU itself, or if it's an issue with a profile that's being applied to the card. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JonN ✭ July 16 Alright I have installed the AMD Radeon RX 5700 driver only through Device manager without the AMD Software.  I will let you know how it goes.  If it turns out it is a GPU issue am I able to RMA the GPU only or do I have to send in the entire desktop?  I am hoping the GPU only as it would take me only a minute to install and I would not have to wait days/weeks to get the computer sent to only install a new GPU and ship it back.  Also if this works fine now aren't I losing out on free sync and maybe something else without the software installed?  Thanks again for all your help. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JonN ✭ July 17 I had another green screen / restart just now.  I will start the RMA process.  Thank you for all your help. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter JayM ✭ August 21 I am having the same issue with my PowreSpec G358 (i7-10700 & AMD Radeon RX 5700XT). 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Ian admin August 21 JayM said: I am having the same issue with my PowreSpec G358 (i7-10700 & AMD Radeon RX 5700XT).

I am sorry to hear you are having issues with your CyberPowerPC's RGB LED's. In these configurations, it's typical for the fans to be plugged into either an RGB controller or a daisy chain splitter and connected to either the motherboard, or a third party controller. Since you are able to control the LED's with the press of a button on the chassis, I believe they are using a controller or splitter and plugging into a daughterboard of some kind on the chassis, perhaps behind the rear motherboard tray. Your description of the issue leads me to believe that the RGB connector isn't fully seated, or the controllers pin that is designated for the blue hues of color is defective. Since you can access the red and green color spectrum, I would start by tracing the RGB cables from the fans to their destination, making sure each is firmly seated to their respective connectors and tracing their connections to the source of the RGB controller, making sure once again that everything is firmly seated. If you would like to remove the side panel and provide pictures, we can try to offer additional assistance as to where they may be located. If you are not comfortable doing so, our service team can assist in-store. Lastly, if you would like to utilize your warranty through CyberPowerPC, you certainly have the ability to do so, however I would recommend the other options first as an RMA may take the longest for a resolution.  Please let us know how you'd like to proceed, and we'll do our best to assist from there! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article New Razer Blade 15 is Hot! — Micro Center New Razer Blade 15 is Hot! Dulfite ✭ August 29 in Technical Support Questions I love the computer except for the temperature. When I play a game on it, the thing reaches insane temperatures. I don't want my parts to be damaged from heat (it gets to around 100 degrees when gaming) or my lap to catch on fire. I have used it both on my lap pad as well as over a Targus cooling pad (AWE61) and it heats up regardless. I've read online what various people have done, from Throttlestop, to getting a better fan pad (with 5 fans instead of the two I have on mine), to simply getting a stand to prop it up and allow better airflow. Please give me your solutions, thanks! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSPhillipT admin August 29 Hello @Dulfite Unfortunately, this is just how gaming laptops are, especially the more expensive ones.  You are putting in very good and strong parts inside a very small space.  There are some solutions that other manufacturers are exploring when it comes to cooling gaming laptops however current prototypes are a bit off.   My current favorite solution to this is the new ASUS ProArt and ASUS Mothership (not released).  The ProArt is a studio laptop however it is based off the Mothership.  The concept is that all the hardware and cooling are on the lid so that it is facing the air and not facing the desk.   My recommendations for mitigating heat from the laptop 1.) Lower the ambient temperature in the room if possible 2.) Use a stand or cooling pad to allow a lot of extra space for air intake from the bottom of the laptop 3.) Underclocking the processor/GPU.  This will lower performance but will also lower the heat 4.)

Regarding your points: 1) Room temperature is generally set at 75, sometimes 73, I'm a married man and can't really get away with anything cooler than that. What is the optimal temperature recommended? Would a ceiling fan directly over me and the laptop more so impact this positively? 2) As I mentioned, I have a cooling bad and a separate Targus cooling fan that goes under the laptop. When I put the laptop directly on either of those it still runs hot. That fan pad worked wonders on my Acer (which uses a gtx950m), but it isn't helping with this computer. Is there a recommended cooling pad/fan that works best? I tried propping up the computer with something in order to allow more airflow, but that did nothing to resolve the heat when I was playing a game. 3) How do you do this? With Throttlestop? 4) I only use it directly on my lap when I'm doing non gaming things, but there is absolutely no heat problem during those times so far. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin August 29 I'm pretty sure the 10th gen Intel CPUs should be throttling at 90C so if you're hitting 100 then something is probably wrong. If the cooling pad isn't helping you at all, then there's a few possibilities for why: The cooling in the computer is just poorly designed Something is not working properly/defective Your fans for some reason aren't set to their max speeds when under heavy load.  Are you specifically making sure that your have your fans set to max speed when gaming? They may not automatically go to 100%, some laptops will only go up to something like 70% then you have to press a button or enable a settings to actually get max speeds. Undervolting your CPU would be done via BIOS and changing the voltage settings, for your GPU you can use MSI Afterburner to do it. I personally haven't undervolted so I can't really offer any advice there. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Dulfite ✭ August 29 Okay so I manually put my fan on 100% when I play games and that has decreased it significantly. With the fan on I don't think it went over 80, let alone near 100. Hopefully this is the fix for any game. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin August 29 Yep, that sounds about right. A temp decrease like that should drastically reduce thermal throttling and improve performance.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article Need Help Choosing Parts — Micro Center Need Help Choosing Parts Alwaysryu ✭ August 8 edited August 8 in Help Choosing Parts I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=ae1328a5-c7c4-48f7-a042-99612c02c75c Looking to build a streaming and gaming build. Streaming will involve the following type of streams -Ps4 with face cam and overlay -An overhead and a face cam for tabletop gaming and overlay -PC gaming with face cam and overlay Would this build be up for the task? Should I put anything else in to it?  Thanks 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin August 8 Hello @Alwaysryu! Welcome to the Community.  This build is definitely up to the task, the only thing I might change would be recommending the Ryzen 7 3700X or Intel i5-10600k and going with a 2080 Super for the video card. Both of those CPUs are more than capable of live-streaming and gaming at the same time if you're using software encoding, and you could get an in-game performance uplift from the 2080 Super vs the 2070 Super which is always nice to have.  The other thing to consider is that the RTX video cards include the NVENC encoder which is quite good for live streaming and unless you're constantly maxing out your GPU usage, you can pretty much just slap on NVENC and have no problems streaming while completely freeing up your CPU for any other resources on your system, and in that case the 3900X is probably overkill and you could just save some money on a less expensive CPU. This is going to depend on the games you play as well as your target settings for your live stream but it's definitely something to consider. I have a system with a Ryzen 7 3700X and a 2080 Super and I've done a lot of testing on live streams and I've found that with the games I play, software encoding has worked best for me, but many people use only NVENC and never have any issues.  If you're interested, I actually wrote a live-streaming guide that goes over a lot of those concepts in a little more detail.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Specs on XPS 8930 Dell Desktop — Micro Center Specs on XPS 8930 Dell Desktop La_Red ✭ May 16 in Sales I'm looking to purchase this desktop  SKU: 969147 Mfr Part #:XPS8930-7357BLK UPC:884116317357 I'm trying to figure out whether it has an M2 slot and whether it has dual or single channel memory. I have been trying to get the store on the phone with no success, and I can't find it in the specs provided online anywhere.  Does anyone know? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Answers BubbleMax MN ✭ May 16 @La_Red From what I'm going to guess this is not M.2 compatible. As these tend to have a pre like 2017 MB's that are mostly green are going to generally be one gen to old for a M.2  TLDR if you want M.2 you will need most likely a MB upgrade.  As to the Ram from what I"m seeing of YT reviews of an equivalent build. Most of the MB's in these PC's have dual channel RAM(These if they have to can also run just one stick of RAM.) The only problem is they are LIMITED however to just two Memory sticks.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In my honest opinion there are FAR better PC's that even you could PC game on for 800 dollars. And still get all the stuff you wanted as well get RGB. For what you would be spending on this pc. The PC your looking at is like scaping the bottom of the bucket.  Plus an i7-9700 is feels awkwardly thrown into this build to just inflate the price. Not to mention any effort to upgrade that build your suggesting would be a nightmare.  https://www.microcenter.com/product/617115/powerspec-b731-desktop-computer < ~ This one is what I'd invest in as if you intend to use it for graphic design or modeling in VR. Or use it to game its Not only going to be more easy but its also the case will have MORE airflow and easier upgradeability. As there aren't giant HDD racks and etc in the way.  Also you could use that like 100$ or so to get a nice external 1TB SSD And have about almost 1.5 times the space.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter BubbleMax MN ✭ May 16 BubbleMax said: @La_Red From what I'm going to guess this is not M.2 compatible.

Community Article Is it my motherboard or psu?? — Micro Center Is it my motherboard or psu?? Mario ✭ April 29 in Technical Support Questions I was changing my brothers pc parts over to the cooler master h500 case and when I went to power it on smoke came from the 8pin psu/rear i/o on the aorus b450 pro WiFi motherboard. The system shut itself down I turned off the power and unplugged it from outlet. I took it apart and tested it out of the case and it won’t power on but the motherboard is getting power as the rgb on it is illuminated but is blinking orange near the i/o and green near the audio card. I’m not sure what happened all the standoffs were in the correct place in the case. Everything was plugged in correctly. I have made an appointment to bring in the pc to microcenter tomorrow but any advice if I should bring the parts individually or put it back together in the case? Thanks for any help! 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSMikeW admin April 29 That's your VRM on your motherboard. It specifically powers the CPU, so you can still get standby power via the 24 pin, but it's not going to POST again, unfortunately. You can check the pins on the back of the board. Look for metal contacts that are either damaged or slightly blued.  It may well have just been a random failure of the VRM. No indication from your description that you did anything wrong. If you want us to diagnose the system and verify there is no damage to any other components, our store would charge a diagnostic fee, but we can do this for you. In that case, bring the entire system in, built. Otherwise you would want to repackage the components and bring them in to see a manager about an exchange. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Mario ✭ April 29 Dang I was hoping it wasn’t the motherboard. Ok I’m bringing it in tomorrow for diagnosing. Thank you for your help.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Low-profile DIMMs — Micro Center Low-profile DIMMs Scott ✭ May 11 in Sales I'm looking for 2 x 8GB DDR3-1600 DIMMs, but due to an obstruction, it needs to have a low profile.  My existing DIMMs are 30mm and don't fit.  Does Micro Center have any shorter DIMMs in this specification? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin May 11 The shortest DIMMs we have are going to be any that don't have a heatsink included, like this one:  https://www.microcenter.com/product/460739/crucial-8gb-(1-x-8gb)-ddr3l-1600-pc3-12800-cl11-single-channel-desktop-memory-module-ct102464bd160b---green I don't know exactly how tall these are, but RAM size is standardized so if this is what your current RAM looks like, that's the shortest you're going to be able to go.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSKyleH admin May 11 Hello @Scott DDR3 is unfortunately has a lower supply right now. Currently I am only showing standard memory dimms available. If the obstruction is the cpu cooler may have options to replace that to give more room to the memory.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Scott ✭ May 11 Thanks for the quick responses!  Yes, it's a CPU cooler.  I'm going to look into some options there (LGA1150) because I'm starting to think that low-profile DDR3 could be difficult to find or expensive. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSKyleH admin May 11 Yes, currently newer builds are using DDR4 memory, but here is a list of LGA1150 compatible coolers that may be helpful. https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?N=4294966927+4294820525&Ntt=&prt=&sku_list=&Ntx=&Ntk=all&Nr=.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.
