    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Bios Updating

    I've installed the new ram and enabled xpm again. Shows up in windows as 32GB running at 3000mz so all good. Waiting to see if PCS get back to me now regarding the OC the cpu. Funny thing is my cpu is already running at 4200mhz. I thought stock was 4000mhz?

    T That makes sense! I've contacted PCS via email. Lets hope they can help me. If not Ill do it manually. I seen some guides already. I want to OC it from 4000mhz to 4400mhz. As it was when I bought it from PCS.

    Hmm i downloaded the OC Bios .cmo file from my account. Put it on a usb Fat32 disk. Went into Bios and via OC profile tried to update the OC settings. Got the message below. Is it because I updated the bios to the latest version?

    Exactly as you said, I got the 80% from task manager. Ill check the commited numbers when I install my new ram later on. Diablo 4 and Marvels midnight suns always seems to use a lot of memory lol.

    I bought the computer in 2016 so not under warranty anymore. xmp was turned off so I enabled it. I will also download the OC file and use that to update the Bios. Thank you!

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Display/Hardware error

    Thanks for the comments guys. I do appreciate it. Just to let you know, after i did a clean reinstall of windows, I have had no problems since. No more crashes thank god. It was getting ridiculous having the computer crashing and rebooting every few mins.

    sorry i wasnt clear on that, i tried 2 older drivers from nvidias website. one from oct and the other from sept. Still crashed.

    Fair point but it was still crashing whatever driver i used, i would have thought the next thing to look at would be my gpu failing. Its 7 years old now. When i was using microsofts basic driver i had no crashes at all. So its either the nvidia driver or the gpu?

    When this popped up after the last crash i was ready to pull my hair out lol. I just removed the drive from the computer and reinstalled windows on the m2 ssd. ive installed the latest driver for my gtx 1080 and am now downloading games from steam to see if finally no more crashes. /crosses fingers

    As soon as i install a graphics driver windows intermitantly crashes and restarts itself. Maybe the graphics card is failing. This computer is 7 years old now :-(
