Basically, this is what happened:

I unpacked it, and plugged my mouse and keyboard in. The keyboard is a basic one, normal ps2 connection. The mouse is usb, but I have an adapter to make it ps2.

So, turned it on, and the mouse didn't work. Removed the connector, and used it as usb, and it worked.

Selected my language, then the next stage appeared, to create a user. The keyboard stopped, wouldn't work.

I rebooted, and it worked.

Got to the Desktop, and thought I'd go online. No internet was working, so I rebooted both the modem and pc, as sometimes this is a solution.

Well, now it boots, in the background you can see a blue screen of death, and it goes back to the motherboard splash screen, and then to the Windows Recovery screen.

Selecting Start Windows Normally, creates a reboot loop.

Selecting the option to put my disk in, reboot and repair didn't work, no repair came up.


Also, the case on the top, at the back, is red hot. This is a coolermaster, so I think its motherboard related.


So, rining when they're open on Monday, sending it back, getting a refund of the deposit, and then I'll build my own.

It will take a while, as I was going to pay this one off in 12 months, so about xmas I should be done.

Not happy here :twisted:

I am doing. I have packed it back up, and will ring them at 9am, or when I can get out of the lab.

I want my deposit back, they can take it back, and I'm building it myself, using what I WANT.

If it goes wrong, at least I know it will be my fault, and I can open it up to look. Can't with this, as its under a years warranty.

Good god, its not even a day old :shock:

Back on my old pc for a while, and gonna kill, kill, kill :evil:

Not sure if anyone gets it, but in this months PCGamer, there is a section on building a rig that is suitable for most modern games.

Looking at the parts I have, I have a motherboard, graphics card, cpu, ram and psu to get....all for about £400.


So, will save up and then getting it :P
