Community Article Asus prime z590-a — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › General Discussion › New Members Asus prime z590-a McBragg ✭ July 11 in New Members Asus Z590-A, i5 11600k, 2x16 gb corsair vengeance sl rgb 3600, rtx 3060 tuf gaming 12gb, WD Black n850 1TB 2m drive, corsair AIO cooler all new parts and new engagement 850w power supply. System beeps once and green boot light stays on, can't get to bios no video signal. Tried stripping system down to cpu and ram only and use OB graphics, still same issue can't get to bios because no video signal. What could be causing this issue, replaced motherboard with another new board. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSMikeW admin July 12 Greetings @McBragg Based on the description, this sounds like a POST with a video output issue. Debug LED on boot means the CPU/RAM/VGA initialized. You don't have a bootable device connected, the system should be in the BIOS. So we'll need to see what's going on here. Test another monitor. If you're using a TV, this could be an issue at the BIOS level. Check the video cable as well. You've got an 11600K. Remove your 3060 and test with the IGP connected. If the IGP works. reinstall the video card, but leave the monitor connected to the IGP. Boot the system. If you get video, it's not detecting your 3060. If no video with the IGP connected, move the monitor to the 3060. Reboot. See if you get video. If not, it's a video output issue. If you were able to get video with the IGP, you've ruled out the monitor and cable. This would mean the card is the culprit. It's being detected, but it's not functioning properly. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.6K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 730 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 69 Consumer Tech 20 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 158 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Full Stop 🛑 Columbus, Ohio We were on the beginning of the family vacation to Myrtle Beach when I realized we would be driving past this location. My amazing wife let us leave a little early to stop. My wife (Crystal) is the real MVP.  On this day, the gods bestowed me the opportunity to purchase a GPU which I promptly did. In the adrenaline fueled situation I then had to use the public restroom (thanks a million!) and then couldn’t  handle window shopping knowing the card was waiting for us. Checked out and then took the card on the vacation with us. Took pictures of it like it was a part of the family 😂🤣😂 The build is, as always, evolving. We have added a second monitor and are starting to learn about streaming and OBS. There is a small chance I am in the process of building a green screen currently…..you know….for a friend.  Couple pictures of the card on vacation with us; Thanks for taking the time to look and even more thanks if you feel like leaving a comment. I used to build computers with my brother and then stopped for 10 years. I’m so happy to be back into it and cherish sharing this passion with my boys.  “Having two boys (8 and 10) is like having two broke ass best friends that happen to think your rich” - Me I appreciate the 30 day wait policy. They didn’t have to do that but they did. Tomorrow is Fathers Day and I think me and my boys may be making our second trip to the Columbus location.

Mario ✭ April 2020 in General Discussion 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 TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin April 2020 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 TwitterShare on Facebook Mario ✭ April 2020 Dang I was hoping it wasn’t the motherboard. Ok I’m bringing it in tomorrow for diagnosing.

Yet, for some reason, I have decided to try something completely out of my comfort zone. I am an amateur woodworker, and I would like to build a PC within a wooden enclosure. I got my inspiration from DIY Perks' youtube clip "Building a spectacular DIY 'desk PC'" ( and while I'll be mostly following his guidance, I will take a note or two out of my own experience. Right now, I'd like your opinion on two things: 1. if I wanted to wire capacitor buttons so that I can turn on and off my PC without getting into the parts, who would I ask for help when it comes to programming the buttons (I'm not even sure if programming is the right word). This is explained in the video but I am not too savy. 2. heat, heat, heat! I will be using two large radiators connected to a water pump that's cooling the main components like the CPU on the motherboard and the GPU. Do you think I will need to cut out additional holes for fans or for the PSU. 3. what other cool things do you think I can hook up to this? Since I'm going all out, I'd love to add lights and a mic. 4. What kind of corners do you guys think I can cut in terms of water cooling or if I have enough ports, do I even need it? 5. Last thing, he mentions we cannot connect our IO to the motherboard, so he suggested buying short panel mount extension wires and to make a panel cutout connected to it. I don't mind making the panel, but can I just screw in the female ports onto a makeshift panel? Thanks for any help you recommend and check out the video, it's actually really fascinating, inspiring me to bring together tech and nature into one case. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.6K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 730 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 69 Consumer Tech 20 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 158 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Last week, I noticed the Brother wireless printer will not print jobs from my personal laptop (Toshiba). I installed the wireless printer software onto another laptop (Dell). However, I encountered the same problem from both laptops: I click "Print" and the light will turn green on the Brother wireless printer. But nothing will print.  I have tried rebooting the home wireless modem router (still can't print), troubleshooting on my laptop (system found no errors with the wireless printer), restarting the wireless printer (no luck), and resetting the network on the wireless printer. My home wireless modem router shows the wireless printer is connected, and the wireless printer reports a status of a strong and connected WLAN. I even tried disabling and restarting the Print Spool function under Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.  I still can't print a document from either laptop. Ironically, I can receive print jobs from my Android smartphone (I select "Print" and the wireless printer comes to life).  I have exhausted my options. My laptops and smartphone connect to the home wireless modem router. I will appreciate any solutions! I do not want to replace the wireless printer if I run into a similar issue with the network.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin June 2020 Do you have a USB cable you can use to try plugging the printer directly into your laptops? That would be first instinct. If it can print successfully when using a USB cable, that means it has to be something to do with the wireless communication between the printer and computers. You mentioned you restarted your router, you could also try factory resetting your router. You'll have to re-connect your devices to wifi when you do this, but it's worth a shot.  I would also check and make sure your computers are set to a private network with network discovery turned on. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Advanced Sharing Settings. Open the private category and make sure network discovery is selected.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.6K All Categories 999 The Blog 29 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 77 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 730 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 69 Consumer Tech 20 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 158 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Please help as much as you can, 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Ian admin August 20 Greetings, that budget is honestly a little low if you are looking for peripherals / multiple monitors and the PC for gaming, I'd recommend to be able to come up into the $1200-1500 range with the titles you have listed and multiple monitors. At your current price range, I'd look at this pre-built: https://www.microcenter.com/product/626473/hp-pavilion-gaming-computer I would suggest adding another 8GB stick of RAM to this (about $50) - like this https://www.microcenter.com/product/626749/crucial-8gb-ddr4-2666-pc4-21300-cl19-single-channel-desktop-memory-module-green Here is information on the 1650 video card and benchmarks for some games to get an idea of what it can run: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3465-dead-on-arrival-nvidia-gtx-1650-video-card-review-vs-rx-570 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JohnDaBeardWilliford Mayfield Store Associate August 25 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/9304/i-need-help-choosing-parts That's going to be rough like Ian was saying. Remember that the current Minecraft wants Ray Tracing technology as well. Don't be surprised if you end up looking at a PC with an RTX 3060 in it and end up closer to $1599.99 without any peripherals. The hardest thing to do is to wait and buy something that will last.... but I would recommend saving up and getting something you'll be happier with and won't have to replace as soon. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.6K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 76 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 730 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 69 Consumer Tech 20 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 158 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

(i can live w 30 fps) anything more is incredible. i don't need anything like cool leds or whatnot, just a good computer. does anybody have any advice, tips, anything on getting the new powerhouse for content creation and stuff? super duper big thanks. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin May 4 At that price range, I'd look at this pre-built: https://www.microcenter.com/product/626473/hp-pavilion-gaming-computer I would suggest adding another 8GB stick of RAM to this (about $50) - like this https://www.microcenter.com/product/626749/crucial-8gb-ddr4-2666-pc4-21300-cl19-single-channel-desktop-memory-module-green Here is information on the 1650 video card and benchmarks for some games to get an idea of what it can run: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3465-dead-on-arrival-nvidia-gtx-1650-video-card-review-vs-rx-570 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.6K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 158 How to & Technical Guides 8 Computer Hardware 118 Software 3 Home Office 5 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 7 Maker 14 PC Build Guides 76 Reviews & Buying Guides 25 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 730 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 69 Consumer Tech 20 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 72 Software 2 Audio/Visual 11 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 22 3D Printing 46 Retro Arcade/Gaming 78 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 48 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 110 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.6K Help Choosing Parts 218 Graphics Cards 158 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 11 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 6 All Other Parts 20 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Welcome to the Community.  Gamers Nexus is my go-to when it comes to benchmarking data and technical overview of components. They have a review on the EVGA 2060 KO specifically here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUFRBnJdx3Y It's a pretty thorough breakdown and highlights how the 2060 KO is different from other 2060 cards. In terms of gaming, the 2060 KO is the same as normal RTX 2060 cards but the 2060 KO is different in that it has advantages in workstation applications. This is their original review of the 2060 and covers more benchmarks in games: https://www.gamersnexus.net/hwreviews/3427-nvidia-rtx-2060-founders-edition-review-benchmark-vs-vega-56. They also have a video you can watch covering that information, it's embedded on that page. For gaming performance I'd refer to this guide.  I didn't see FAHbench listed in either guide, but the 2060 KO is a strong option at its price point. It's definitely a much stronger value than the other 2060 models since it undercuts their prices by a decent margin.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook cine_chris Powder Springs, GA ✭✭✭ May 2020 edited May 2020 Thx @TSTonyV, yes, that was an informative video.  I'm not a gamer, but cine-editing, vfx work & [email protected] have shoved me into the GPU universe.  I'm a retired engineer so it's fun for me to look at repurposing old gear for folding platforms and looking at optimizing gear combos for folding.  Part of my repurpose strategy is to use 'open-box' MC gear, I'll be picking up the KO Ultra tomorrow  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin May 2020 edited May 2020 cine_chris said: Thx @TSTonyV, yes, that was an informative video.  I'm not a gamer, but cine-editing, vfx work & [email protected] have shoved me into the GPU universe.  I'm a retired engineer so it's fun for me to look at repurposing old gear for folding platforms and looking at optimizing gear combos for folding.  Part of my repurpose strategy is to us 'open-box' MC gear, I'll be picking up the KO Ultra tomorrow  Based on some of the results I found online, it appears that the RTX 2060 KO is beating 1080 Ti's when it comes to PPD. Since it technically uses the same TU104 die as the RTX 2080's, it's folding performance is extremely solid for the price, however there is a caveat you must be really aware of. While the die itself is a cutdown RTX 2080, the PCB and cooler is the same used for the GTX 1650 Super GTX 1660 Super. For typical gaming loads, this is fine, but sustained folding might not end well in the long run. If you do go this route, make sure that you have active cooling on the card with an additional fan of some kind, cooling both the PCB on the back and perhaps provide additional intake airflow for the two fans on the side.

This is what he has listed: intel core i5-2400 3.10 ghz B75 LGA 1155 Motherboard  video card NVIDIA Gforce GTX 650 1GB DVI, VGA and HDMI Ports Ethernet port + WiFi  3x USB3.0 and 4x usb2.0 500w power supply  3 rgb 120mm fans with remote control  tempered glass side panel  ram 8gb ddr3 hdd 1tb windows 10 pro 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 20 @TaeTae just chiming in. The CPU is 2nd gen processor and the B75 motherboard is a 2012 released motherboard. That PC is an older pc and the GTX 650 GPU is older as well. You'll get average frame rates with the 650 GPU if you plan on gaming. Now if you plan on using this pc to just surf the web and read emails and no gaming, this PC will work. I hope its being sold at a very good price, because the system is an older system (ex., almost 10 years old). 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TaeTae ✭ June 20 @TSTDavey ok thank you for the information! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 20 @TaeTae NO Problemo.

Looking at a motherboard for the first time could leave you with several questions. This quick guide seeks to identify and explain each of the key parts of a typical motherboard. This article references an ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F Gaming Motherboard however the general design of most motherboards is very similar for purposes of this article. Let's begin with the CPU Socket - where the processor goes. Typically, the CPU will be from one of two manufacturers: Intel or AMD. You can tell what processors are compatible by checking the socket type. This board has an AM4 socket which fits most current AMD processors. Next, we move to the memory or RAM slots. Modern memory slots will feature one side with a clip that is used to hold the memory stick in place. The other side will be ridged to hold the stick in place but allow the memory stick to be pressed into the slot without the need to have a second clip found in older motherboards. There are two main power connectors on a motherboard. All motherboards, much like this B450, will have a motherboard power port that uses a 20+4pin configuration. Modern power supplies will usually have this already set up for the full 24pin setup. Depending on the computer, they can run anywhere from 20pin to as little as 11pin for most prebuilt towers, such as Lenovo or Dell. As for CPU power, located top left, it will run either a 4pin or 8pin connection. That 8pin connection may be a 4+4pin, with some CPU power cables even running an 8+4pin. Now we see the PCIe slots - referred to as PCI Express slots. Most motherboards will have multiple slots. The first image highlights the PCIe 16x slots and the second image highlights the PCIe 1x slots. Graphic cards are the most common expansion cards placed in these slots, but they also function as additional slots for anything from additional USB ports to sound cards and secondary network cards. Next we see the front panel connections that usually span the bottom of the board. This is where ports and buttons on the front of the case are normally connected to the motherboard. For the most part they will be on the bottom of the board, but if the board supports USB 3.0 or higher, you will see the header below or to the side of the motherboard power pins in most builds. Most computers will have at least one SATA Port in use at any given time, so it’s important you know where to look when utilizing them. SATA is now the standard connection for most internal Hard Drives, SSD Solid State Drives, and Optical Drives. Next, we have a newer port on motherboards, the M.2 slots. These slots, depending on the board, will usually fit one of two type of M.2 devices - SATA or PCIe. When in use, they will take up a portion of the data lanes available of their given type. Most commonly they are used for internal SSD storage - something that looks like a memory stick and functions like a disk drive. Finally, let’s look at the I/O Panel - Input and Output connectors, where all your cables plug in to the back of the computer. The arrangement and selection of ports will vary between motherboards. Starting on the far left, we can begin with the PS/2 port. This is what is known as a legacy port. While most keyboards and mice today will use USB in one form or another, the support for PS/2 stems from a fall back option for keyboard or mouse connections should the motherboard experience issues with their USB ports. On the topic of USB, lets continue with the next set of ports on the panel. USB ports come in a variety of colors and at least two shapes. Notice the standard rectangular USB ports. Different versions are signified by the color of the port, but USB ports and most devices are backwards compatible. The Type-C USB port - an oval shaped port located below the single light blue USB Port - is the other type of USB on this panel. While newer to motherboards, it functions identically to its more common cousin, but is able to perform at greater speeds and transmit higher power levels. Looking towards the center of the panel, we have the video ports. Pictured here are two of the more modern video connections, HDMI below with Display Port or DP above. While most motherboards still come with video ports, many higher end CPUs no longer come with integrated graphics, relying instead on a dedicated video card that many computers come with now. Next we see the Ethernet Port. This is where the network cable would plug in to your computer. Virtually all motherboards will have one of these as desktops typically rely on a wired connection to the internet. Ethernet still provides the best network speeds and connection stability. Some motherboards may also support wireless connections. While the first one does not, the second picture from a similar model shows what they look like. For our last item we see the sound ports. This board has several connectors, but most of the time it comes down to what your sound setup is. Most motherboards use a standard color-coded scheme: green for audio (speakers or headphones), and red or pink for microphones. The additional ports are for additional speakers like surround sound or related features. SPDIF is reserved for Digital Audio. © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla Community Article Dallas Store queue issues — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Store Information and Policy Dallas Store queue issues Curtisv123 ✭ December 2020 in Store Information and Policy I visited the MicroCenter store in Dallas today and left empty handed and extremely disappointed in my experience. After checking the online stock availability of the 3000 series GPUs and discovering over 11 models were in stock this morning I decided to make the trip to see if I could luck out and grab one for myself. I got to the store and was instructed by a store employee, who was blocking the door, that I needed to scan the QR code posted on a paper outside so that I could enter the queue to come in TL the store. I did so, followed all of the prompts on the screen, and received a green check mark on my phone letting me know that I had entered the queue and received an estimated wait time of 25-30 minutes. After about 45 minutes of waiting and seeing people that arrived after me enter the store I decided to go up and ask the employees at the entrance if there was something that I was missing regarding the new process. It was at this time that I was informed by one of them (after giving them my name) that they could see I was on the list and the list was displaying an “error message” regarding sending my text notifications to me. However, at this time the item I wanted to purchase had already been sold to another customer.  I cannot guarantee that had this issue not occurred that I would have still been able to purchase the graphics card I wanted. I understand the unprecedented demand for these items, and the limited stock availability. However I would be lying if I didn’t say I was angry and disappointed that this happened to me. Even though both employees managing the entrance could see there was an issue on MicroCenter’s end neither of them attempted to call out for me, or remedy the issue. Additionally the employee instructing people on the procedures for entering the store, and the printout with the QR code, did not give clear instructions. I was unaware that in addition to receiving the confirmation on the website, I should have additionally received a confirmation text message. Moving forward I think this problem could have been avoided. Better training for the employees manning the entrance could have eliminated the issue completely. Had I know to expect a text initially I would have noticed an issue ahead of time and fixed it at that time. Additionally if an employee sees that an issue is displayed on their queue turning a blind eye to that should not be the way your business operates.  I look forward to visiting MicroCenter again, and hope you take my suggestions in to consideration on improving how your stores operate. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin December 2020 Greetings.

I took it into a "certified" PC repair shop and after a week they said no issues were found and no BSOD occured. I picked up the PC and after another week the BSOD returned. I did a Windows Memory Diagnostic on my own and after the test all I got was "Your computer has a memory problem". Now recently my computer has been giving me BSOD more frequently and it has been performing slowly. My mouse settings were randomly changed and some games on my steam start downloading after a BSOD crash.

Welcome to the community! The two errors that you've included in your post above are referencing a DirectX and a System Service Exemption. Typically the system Service Exemption error is caused by a driver issue, in this case, because of the DirectX error, I'd recommend performing a reinstallation of your GPU driver.
