This may be a hardware issue too-
So, I am making a computer that will permanently be on, just to run a few servers for games. I only want access via RDP, which is fine.
However, I have had some issues.
Firstly, when I started the PC, after around 2-3 minutes (varied at times), the computer's display turned off and I could no longer ping the PC.
I tried basic troubleshooting steps, made sure all connections were in well.
I then turned off 'Turbo mode' in my BIOS, this half fixed the issue. Now, instead the computer restarts itself. I cannot for the life of me figure out why? It restarts fairly quickly after startup, sometimes immediately.
Also, when I install my old GPU into it, the system refuses to post. (even when using the mobo display ports)
Here are my specs:
CPU: Intel firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz
PSU: Corsair 450w (CP-9020049-UK VS series)
MB: ASUS p8h61-m
RAM: 16GB@1666MHz / 1 stick corsair / 1 stick HyperX
HDD: 1TB Seagate
DVD Drive installed
I have tried the GPU in a far far far more powerful system, and it worked. The GPU is in the GTX series but I am not sure which one, I received it for free a while back. Now, I don't need a GPU but I thought if I could take the graphical strain away from the CPU, it may be more successful. I have an RX 480 in another machine, I'll plug that in and see if that posts when I get home.
Please note: I have searched this. been through many many threads, but often the issue is not quite the same. Which is why a new thread was started.
