►Troubleshooting Tips◄
1) If your PC doesnt turn on (No fans are spinning):

– Flip the switch behind your Power Supply from O to | (SEE 15:50 in video)
-Make sure the front panel cables are connected correctly, most importantly the ‘Power Switch’ pin is in the correct spot. (SEE 12:51 in video)

2) Your PC boots, but screen is black (no output)

-Check and make sure the CPU connectors are fully seated in the CPU header labeled CPU_PWR1 on the motherboard. (SEE 10:56 in Video)
-Make sure the HDMI/Display port cable is connected to both the GPU and the monitor. If its connected to the back of the motherboard, its gonna display a black screen.
-Make sure the input on your monitor is the same as the source of your HDMI/DP cable. If the cable is in HDMI 1 port in the back of your monitor, make sure your monitor source input is set to HDMI 1.
-Make sure the PCI-E connector is hooked up to the GPU and that its fully seated. (SEE 10:28 in Video)
-Make sure all of your ram sticks are fully seated. If above fail, turn off PC, remove all ram sticks and re-insert them in again.

3) You boot to BIOS, but PC doesnt recognize the USB stick and doesnt boot to windows setup screen.

-Make sure all the USB cables are connected properly to the USB headers on the motherboard (SEE 11:05 and 11:56 in Video)
-Connect your USB stick to the back of the PC, do not use the front usb headers.
-Restart PC and hit F8 repeatedly until Boot menu opens up. Then select the USB drive on the list and it will boot straight from it.
-Installation on USB drive is either incorrect or corrupt. Re-install windows files on USB (SEE 14:53 in video)

  1. One minor mistake on my end is at 9:13
    I called the Sata Power Cable a 'Data Cable' my mistake!

  2. So im plan on adding an ssd and hdd, does the power supply have additional sata/power cable for both or do i have to buy another pair?

  3. Do we call it PC or desktop? I'm confuse..I thought PC is laptop? Can someone explain it further pls

  4. Very in depth and much more easy to follow than other tutorials!

  5. Just started off buying parts for my new PC, this video was the most helpful one I have seen by far! Keep up the good work and thanks for the help!!

  6. Just curious how much would this build cost if you mentioned it I missed it… I have a old 2006 era compaq/hp tower and i already have a 3.5” 2Tb Sata hd the hard drive I know I can reuse but is it worth trying to get newer parts to fit in the old tower?

  7. If you have an extra pci-e slot on your motherboard and if you case can support it, i recommend getting a Wireless PCI Express adapter, they cost the same price as the usb alternative. This also frees up space for an extra usb port.

    One i recommend is the TP-Link WDN4800 N900

  8. Even an alien can build a pc following this video tutorial. Soo perfect. Thanks bro! 😀

  9. but why dont you connect the wifi adapter to the pc, then use windows update to install the drivers

  10. Do you have to keep the WiFi adapter? Or can I use WiFi in a pc without it? If someone could answer this I would be so happy :D.

  11. I have an msi armor 1060 6gb. I couldn't get my core clock past +200, but I got my memory clock to +700. Is that normal?

  12. What if you don't have a second PC or labtop to install windows onto the flashdrive?

  13. Tech source I appreciate these videos I watch this video too late cause I build my own on my own it was tuff 2hrs sigh keep it up -from a new fan

  14. Really want to build but my mom wants me to buy a pre built for the same price

  15. What happens if you are standing on carpet am I still safe from static?

  16. Any recommendations for this pc I'm building
    CPU-i5 8600k
    Motherboard- Gigabyte Z370 HD3
    CPU Cooler- Cooler Master Masterliquid Lite 120
    Ram- Crucial Sport LT 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2666
    GPU-Asus – GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Dual Video Card
    Storage-Western Digital 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
    PSU- Corsair CX650M 650 Watt
    Case- NZXT S340
    Operating System- Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

  17. Ive always wanted to build a pc, im only 14 but i think im going to save up for these parts. Is the i3-8100 better than an i5-6300?

  18. May I just use an Ethernet cable instead of using wireless WiFi?

  19. This may sound like a dumb question, but are all the nuts and bolts included with the case?

  20. I️ am literally building this when I️ save up enough money

  21. Hey Ed! I'm actually planning on doing this build with slightly different upgrades! Thanks for the video

  22. Un regalo asi para navidad, lastima que mis padres viven en Pobrezuela no tenemos ni para un auto nuevo puta khe zed :'(

  23. Haven't started watching but does it also do good with work purposes?
