Pc problems are killing me

ive been persistently having problems with my pc ever since I built it first it was  blue screens and program crashes but then my pc would randomly stop displaying and all my fans would go to 100%. I thought maybe updating my gpu drivers and bios would help but my pc crashed in the middle of my gpu bios update and now my pc wont display anything at all. can any of you help me with this problem so I don't have to take it to some ghetto pc repair place and let them deal with it.

I got all my updates I was downloading straight from galaxies website.



mobo: msi 990FXA-GD65

cpu: AMD FX-8320

gpu: Galaxy GTX770 2gb

psu: ultra 750 watt full modular bronze certified

ram: 8gb patriot viper

reset cmos

flash bios from usb stick

reset cmos again

try to boot with fingers crossed

I've tried resetting the cmos nothing happened.

Alright, I'll take a stab at this, can you even get into your bios after turning the unit on

no, I turn it on the system runs but displays nothing at all.

Do you have a switch on the GPU for a second BIOS? If so don't flash this one.

I don't know what the hell you were thinking updating the gpu bios when your system is unstable.

First off to try and remedy this you are going to need another PC or a working GPU either way you need a display to test your system memory with memtest86 and run it for at least 9 passes or until it crashes.

http://www.memtest86.com/  Instructions are available on the download page for installation.

Test each stick 1 at a time.  If the first module you test fails, put it in a different slot and test again.  We want to rule out the problem as it could be either the ram, or a faulty slot even a faulty channel all together.

And while your pulling stuff out of your system, remove the motherboard and make sure the stand off's are in their correct positions.  And that you don't have an extra touching the motherboard where it should not be.

Now if it turns out the motherboard and ram are indeed fine we need to start considering if the PSU is faulty.  And with that take it somewhere that it can be tested.  That will need to be RMA'd before proceeding with a re-flash.


Now the fun part with your GPU.  This could be hit or miss given the nature of the incident.

Get a second usb stick, you're going to do a blind flash with the dos version of NVflash.

Download from either of these 2 sites:



Download the latest bios for your GPU here:  http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/

And be 100% sure you are getting the correct bios for your card.


You are also going to need HP boot tool and Win98 dos files:

Here are the instructions read them carefully.


Good luck.


So there?  Any luck?

Those are surely some complicated steps to follow. Hope the OP will sort things out.
