    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Weird Bios 5 second endless reboot issue on startup

    We were all in that position, it takes time to learn (over 50 years in my case) and, as Spock says; "for everything there is a first time". I'm not guaranteeing that changing the battery will help, but in a 4-year old laptop it's the first place to start. Take careful note of the battery...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Weird Bios 5 second endless reboot issue on startup

    Thanks, got it. There is nothing in the System log to be concerned about. You didn't upload the Application log but I don't think it will be useful. Are the messages you're seeing like this... Flash update failed Flash image invalid or not found System will reset in 5 seconds That could...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Computer does 4 beeps followed by 1 beep - What could be causing this?

    You've moved it so something has come adrift inside. The heaviest item is the graphics card so pop that out and back in. Then check the M.2 drive, remove it and reseat it firmly. Check other PCIe cards (like the AX200). Also pop the RAM cards and reset those. Check all power cables - at both...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST New PC issues

    You seem to be pretty sorted TBH, but if you're still concerned then export and upload your logs and any live kernel dumps (you speak of crashes and these often write live kernel dumps). We'll gladly take a look and let you know whether there is anything there to be concerned about. Here's how...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Desktop suddenly very slow.

    It will, but if your problem was being caused by a browser extension or add-on, or if it was being caused by some flaky third-party software, and you reinstall that extension/add-on/software, then you'll be back where you started. Poke-and-hope is never a good troubleshooting technique.

    Windows 10 support ends on 14th October 2025 Source: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/products/windows-10-home-and-pro In any case, Windows 10 is still receiving security and other necessary updates, it's only feature updates that have stopped.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Just back from repairs and GPU is visibly busted.

    As someone else has said, if it had shipped from PCS like that then they'd have no customers left. Between PCS and yourself are a whole bunch of courier and transport people, many of whom don't care that there's a very expensive PC inside the box. Have you ever watched baggage handlers at an...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Extra Cables

    PCS send you everything that came in the component boxes, and which they didn't need in the build, in that welcome box. Some of those bits may be useful in the future (SATA cables for example, or power connectors if you install additional cards) but most of what's in there you'll likely never...

    They may have done, but it's not PCS's job to correct a bad build. They just build what you specify and all the configurator warrants is that components will work together, not that they are suitable.
