PC Problems
Switzerland ElTreezy 
Hello guys, so I was playing FIFA 19 yesterday, then out of nowhere my pc crashed. After that I tried to restart my PC but it didn't work. I waited the whole night now but it's still the same. I opened up my PC and there was a lot of dust on the inside. Do you think my PC should work after I clean up the dust? How do I find out what's broken? Do you have any idea what else might be the problem? Greetings, ElTreezy

it certainly sounds like your powersupply or less likely mobo went bad. and it won't start anymore no matter what you do. what you can do is install another powersupply, and if it still doesnt work its the mobo.

damn... how much is a powersupply? FeelsFuckingBadMan

they are actually pretty cheap, you can get a decent one for 50-100€.
2018-10-12 07:44
okay man, thx! Is there still a chance it's only because of the dust?

a very small chance i guess but i really doubt it. the dust probably caused the failure tho, so keep your pc clean in future.
2018-10-12 07:48
And can I add you on steam to send you my pc specs, so you can tell me what powersupply would be the best

outervision.com/power-supply-calculator you can either use that to calculate the needed psu, or you can install a similar psu you already have in your pc.

Or he can buy a little "extra power" just in case if you know what I mean.

Tbh unless the dust is so thick that it's stopping the fans from cooling the PC case, it probably isn't the dust. But you should still try cleaning out the dust first

Does your motherboard beep or does it have a small display somewhere where it shows an error code? Look up the code or the beeping on the manufacturers site or the handbook
2018-10-12 07:01
no nothing, it crashed and there was literally nothing, like nothing on the screen, neither a message, no beeping no anything

If you have 2 ram sticks take one out or if you have one put it in the other slot If it doesnt work its not the ram If you have a CPU with integrated GPU plus the monitor caple into motherboard and plug GPU out. If this doesnt work it could be the power supply. Test it using a pin, just search psu pin trick on google it will show you
2018-10-12 07:05
But the PC doesn't start, like no sound no nothing, I changed the cable and the electricity should be ok

Does it crash instantly or does it crash under load?
2018-10-12 07:02
it makes like a swooooooosh and then it's crashed, like without a warning it crashed. Out of nowhere

Well, you can clean up the dust, gotta start somewhere, but I don't think that the CPU goes to 110°C right away to crash the system. Can you get into the BIOS?
2018-10-12 07:10
no I cant it doesn't start at all and I was playing for like 5h when it crashed

try to borrow a PSU (that 100% works), you can ask at some IT shop or your internet provider (the one at my city has a small shop where they fix things, so they have some spare PSUs. IDK about yours lol). You can pull off a dick move by ordering a PSU and return it after the test. d i s g u s t i n g thing to do btw

Which CPU do you use? And what about the cooler? Sounds like it would overheat
2018-10-12 07:14
ehm I have a i7 4790k I dont have a cooler, I have the "cooler" on top of the CPU xd it could be overheat but why doesn't it go on after 1 day? Do you think something melted? Do you think after I remove the dust it will work?

Install CoreTemp to see the temp of the CPU. And yes, if it really dusty you should clean it...

If your pc doesn start at all, then its not the dust. If it crashes after a short time, then its the dust.

Something that might help: 1) Unplug you PC completely 2) Open it up (both left and right panel) and remove some components such as RAMS and GPU. 3) Use a Air blower ( google it) from a bit far away and try to push the dust out. Dont directly point the air blower towards the PC mobo. 4) Use a eraser to clean up your RAMS and GPU. 5) Plug everything in, attach both panels back and boot up. hope it helps.
