|OK, I am having a bunch of issues with my computer. It's a custom built. First, here are the specs:|
-Gigabyte MA78GM-AS2H Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
-CPU: AMD Phenom X4
-RAM: Corsair XMS2-6400 8gb (2GBx4)
-Coolermaster CPU Cooler
-Corsair 800D Case
-Nexus RX-8500 PSU
-ATI Sapphire 4870 VGA Card
-ATI TV tuner card
-LG Blu-ray Drive
-Western Digital 2x1TB Green Drives
-Rosewill Wireless Network Card
Now for the issues, and there are a lot.
1) Only 2 of the 5 fans are hooked up. There aren't any more plug-ins for the fans but is there a way to plug-in the others? I read somewhere that I can plug directly into the PSU but I can't figure out how.
2) Sometimes the computer will boot up fine. Most of the time it says "Bootmgr Missing" or files missing or something along those lines. I will restart is several times and eventually it boots up fine. This computer is going to be used as an HTPC only so it will have numerous drives hooked up directly and via USB. When I plug-in the USB drives (11 of them), the computer starts up extremely slow (understandable). If I plug them in after it boots, it takes up to 20 minutes to recognize all the external drives. Most of the time when I boot up with the 4 external drives plugged in, it will not boot correctly, but sometimes it will. I have booted with just the main drive and it boots up normal more often but still not every time. I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed along with MyMovies for my movie integration into WMC. I also have some video game console emulators and that's about it. It usually cannot get through an entire movie in WMC without just restarting or going to a blue screen. Most of the time, it just freezes up in WMC before I can even get a movie playing (this happens even when I have only the internal drives hooked up).
I have less issues when I have the computer in my office upstairs (where I work on it) on a small monitor via VGA and then it almost never works when I bring it downstairs and hook it up to my 55" LED via HDMI. I'm not sure if it's possibly for it to be anything related to HDMI so I thought I'd mention.
Any help is greatly appreciated...
