    Windows 10 crash forcing me to power off PC has broken it!


    Opened Firefox and my PC crashed (no task manager etc). Turn on next morning, get “Preparing for Automatic Repair” and then black screen. Tried Windows Recovery USB and it’s just the Windows Logo and then a black screen again.

    I’m at a complete loss. One thing not being able access my OS but I can’t even access a recovery disk! How do I fix this? Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Can you force an N80 to power of in a crashed state?

    Is there a method to shut down or reboot an N80 when it has crashed without having to removing the battery?

    I could force a shutdown on my old SE p800 by holding down the power key for 10 seconds and it would power down regardless of sw state. (the same as holding down the power button on a PC to force a power off).

    Windows 10 crash forcing me to power off PC has broken it!

    all games crash!

    I suggest you run rthdribl > http://www.daionet.gr.jp/~masa/archives/rthdribl_1_2.zip
    Increase the window size step by step and watch your vga temps permanently.
    What happens?
    If it crashes, run at stock speeds as suggested before and retry.

    P.S.: When your system locks, does the display signal turn off after a time?
    Stuttering sound or no sound at all when freezing?
    What X1800XT model do you own exactly?
