Another thing i noticed while opening my pc again is that there is alot of dust right under the cpu fan.. i cant reach it tho.
Could that be a problem aswell? my pc is very loud in general for some reason.

Kind regards,
John

You can buy a can of compressed air to clean out dust and other shite from the computer.

Explain loud, do you mean like fan noise or other noise? It might be coil whine but that's hard to say right now.

Yeah it's mostly fan noise.. i believe it comes from my gpu, dont know why it's so loud because it's a MSI R7870 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC.. so it should be less noisy right?

By the way, how should i proceed with the bios update? When i run the .exe it says something about overwriting. (check previous replys)


Kind regards,
John

If you haven't yet, I would make sure your system is clean of dust as that should help a lot with system stability.
The amount of dust could interfere with the airflow what would explain the sound you're hearing.

John.

Buy this:

It will help a lot.

And about the BIOS, if the exe doesn't work download the instant flash file, unzip it onto an empty usb stick and upon booting press F2/Delete to enter BIOS, navigate to Smart menu and click the ASRock Instant Flash. And if you need pictures:
ASRock > Instant Flash

Well it's not that the windows bios update doesn't work, it does work.
But it gives me a message that it's dangerous to update.

It says this

"PI Version in SYS ROM mismatched PI Version in ROM file! Force update it may destroy the system BIOS!"

Is this just a minor warning? should i just press update 'yes'?

Kind regards,

John

Don't update it, read on another forum that it means that the file itself is corrupt and that ASRock hasn't noticed it yet.

Oh okay well if you looked at the Air Duster that I linked to you maybe you could pick up a USB stick at the same time?

Ah thats too bad.. What about the screenshots i sent, were u able to find anything?
I've tried xcom2 multiple times but with the same result.

The problem with the gas and the usb stick is that i am a little short on money atm.
Are there any other things i can try?


Kind regards,
Johhn
