Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have a 7 year old gaming PC. It's been showing random blue screens of death recently, with increasing frequency since I installed the June 2019 Windows 10 update. The BSOD stop codes have been PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, and another one I didn't catch. I tried installing BlueScreenView to view the dumps, but the machine blue screened when I opened it.
I ran Memtest86 for an hour a few days ago, but it didn't show any errors.
I planned to roll back the Windows update this evening, but now the PC won't turn on.
The case fans run full blast non-stop. Normally they throttle down after BIOS POST.
None of the attached USB devices are getting power. The obnoxiously bright blue LED on my mouse is dark.
Neither the NVidia GTX 1060 nor the onboard Intel GMA graphics ports output anything. I've tried booting with only one plugged in to no avail.
Is this thing dead? Is there a way to tell for sure that this is a motherboard issue rather than, say, the PSU?
CPU: Core i5-3570K @ 3.4GHz
