People Who Know What They Are Talking About

I had started something here but there are just too many people to list. This website is a wealth of knowledge if you know where and how to look for it. Don't be afraid to ask a question in the forums and some intelligent (and some questionable) people will be there to try and help you.

Basic PC Troubleshooting

  1. Turn off and unplug the power supply.

  2. Wait 5 minutes for all of the power to drain from the system.

  3. Unplug all fan/power/data connections inside and outside of your case.

  4. Also, disconnect the RAM and dedicated GPU (if you have one).

  5. Reconnect all cables, RAM, and GPU. Try to start your PC.

  6. If this doesn't work remove all but one RAM stick, the CPU fan, and all MoBo/CPU power cables.

  7. All that should be connected to your MoBo at this time is 1 RAM stick, the CPU fan, and the power cables for the MoBo.

  8. Use a screwdriver or small piece of metal to jump start your MoBo using the front header MoBo port's "+" and "-" prongs.

  9. If your PC starts, then reconnect one component at a time until all components are reconnected.

  10. If it doesn't start, replace the RAM stick with the other one and retry from step #7.

Text Formating

Tables can be generated by using this format:

Question|Word|other question

Headers can be created by using:


which becomes:












***bold italics***


bold italics

Using four spaces preceding your text generates code form.

like this

"^ this" -without space separating the character from the word



``font change``


font change

- first
- second
- third


  • first
  • second
  • third

You can add lines to separate text by using " - " or " _ " symbols.

which makes:
