  • @CrkDice sige sir try ko yan thanks
  • @calmaardee
    try mo:
    - disconnect WD HDD
    - disable antimalware service sa startup
  • @st_anger_711

    -thanks sir check ko to..

    God bless..
  • @IZOD sige sir try ko din yan thanks
  • Mga sir pa help, nagroground kasi ako sa pc case ko dahil ungrounded yun outlet na sinasaksakan ko, pano Kaya to aayusin ?
  • ^
    Add a grounding wire to the casing.
  • ^ can you explain further? Di ko Alam kung ano yun haha tas does it matter ba kung grounded or ungrounded yun saksakan ko? Thanks
  • kuha ka po wire then kabot mo sa scre ng case, yung dulo baon mo sa lupa.
  • @SirKeter

    kuha ka po wire then screw mo sa case ng PC or CPU at yung dulo baon mo sa lupa. kailangan yung excess current na tumatakbo sa buong case mo ( yan yung nakaka kuryente sayo) layman's term is " na ground" parang Colgate lang pero close up. :) ay mapunta sa ground ( earth ground). Pwede ka mag baon ng ROD about a meter ang haba then yung dulo ng wire dun mo itali.

    Yan kailngan gawin if yung saksakan nyo ay walang grounding system.
  • @SirKeter

    PM mo ko kung may landline ka. tawagan kita or kung smart number ka. Thanks
  • Need help po to setup my RAM to 3000Mhz. Hindi ko po alam kung anong tamang DRAM voltage.

    @baysil2000

    Instead of screwing it to the casing, some have used an alligator clip. The wire runs from the PC to a grounding point. A proper grounding point is a long copper-clad steel rod buried deep in the ground, with only around 6 inches sticking out.

    kung may xmp profile enable mo lang then you can adjust from there you dont need to adjust the voltage since rated na talaga sya for 3000mhz

    How do you know if the socket is "ungrounded?" If the sockets in your house are wired properly then the receptacle for the grounding pin should have the ground wire attached to it. The only way to know is to open the wall socket and look inside to see how it's wired.

    More commonly, the reason why a ground doesn't exist is because there is an interruption in the ground in the circuit from the wall socket to the computer. For example, a typical circuit might look like this: wall socket --> power strip or surge suppressor --> AVR --> computer PSU. Even if only one device between the wall socket and PSU doesn't have a ground connection, then grounding won't exist. For example, the AVR I use has sockets for three-prong plugs (i.e. with a grounding pin) BUT the AVR's plug is only two-prong. Therefore, the AVR has no provision for a ground.

    To make things more confusing, even if a device has a grounding pin is present, it doesn't automatically mean it has a grounding connection. It's possible for a device to have a three-prong plug but the ground isn't actually connected anywhere. The only way to be sure is to open the device an look at how things are connected.

    Going to the root of the matter, to begin with if your PSU is working properly you shouldn't get "grounded." Getting an electric shock when touching the computer case means that one of the live wires in the AC circuit is in contact with the case. When you touch the case, electricity flows from the live wire to your hand/body because you are acting as the ground. Remember that in a computer, the only high voltage circuitry is found in the high-voltage side of the switching power supply (PSU). Once it has been stepped down, it doesn't go any higher than 12 volts, which doesn't cause any shock.

    Personally, I care little about a ground for a PC, because if you're using a quality power supply then the chances that the high-voltage side will come into contact with the PSU's metal case is negligible. It might even be more useful for diverting current away from your PC in case of a lightning strike; though it only takes common sense not to use your PC during a thunderstorm.

    Lastly, you need to distinguish the shock from a live wire in contact with your computer case with that of static electricity. For example, in carpeted rooms and dry weather, it's easy to build up static electricity and discharge it upon touching the computer. This shock will dissipate instantly, unlike the former which will always be present as long as you touch anything conducting electricity from the AC mains.

  • ^ di ako sure kung may mali ba sa psu ko or what, pero nun sinaksak ko siya dun sa grounded na socket (sa may aircon na saksakan) di naman na ako nakukuryente,
    Psu ko is s12III seasonic 650 watts, bronze
  • Tsaka additional di siya static eh, di siya one time shock lang, constant siya, pagdinikit ko sa metal part tadaaa, isa pa ulit tadaa.

  • ^If you want to experiment if it's a PSU issue, easiest way is to remove the PSU from the case temporarily so that it isn't touching the case/computer at all. If the shock disappears then it's a PSU issue, meaning the high voltage side of the PSU is somehow leaking current and causing the shock.
  • well that's what we get on a country that lacks a grounding circuit on our electrical circuit. kaya madals ang sunog dahil sa kuryente eh.
  • Oh so sir to clarify lang, kahit di grounded yun saksakan naten, ok lang dun isaksak yun pc kung wala naman problema? Advisable ba kumuha ng ups or not?

    Well, to be more precise, it's how safety standards are enforced. I stayed in Australia for a couple of weeks and ALL the appliance plugs there are three-prong, meaning it's mandatory to have a ground. There are even three-prong plugs with built-in fuses. Also, electricians doing the wiring in houses might not be doing grounding correctly. In the U.S. you have different inspectors checking stuff like wiring, plumbing, insulation, etc. every time a new house is built. Locally, dunno if there's such a thing. But if you're building your own house, then it's prudent to check yourself if the electrician is wiring a ground correctly.

    BTW, fires are NOT related to the lack of grounding. A ground is a safety mechanism to prevent people from getting shocked. What prevents fires is the presence of fuses and circuit breakers, since short circuits are the ones that generate temperatures high enough to start fires.

    Oh so sir to clarify lang, kahit di grounded yun saksakan naten, ok lang dun isaksak yun pc kung wala naman problema? Advisable ba kumuha ng ups or not?


    It's ideal to have a ground but it's not absolutely necessary. As simple proof of this, the vast majority of appliances in the Philippines are being run on two-prong (non-grounded) plugs, and you don't really hear about electrocutions occurring because of that. For PCs, I don't see it as a necessity. For some other appliances, like washing machines, it's a must, because of higher risk of electrocution (working in a wet environment which reduces resistance and increases chance of current passing through).

    Advisable ba kumuha ng ups or not?

    There's actually a separate thread on this, but personally I'm not a believer in using a UPS if the power supply in your area is stable. Some disadvantages of using a UPS is that the batteries have finite lifespan (need to be replaced), and not all are user-serviceable, meaning the manufacturer will have to install the replacements. Also, sometimes there are incompatibilities between simulated/stepped wave UPSes (your usual "affordable) UPS and power supplies with active power factor correction (active PFC) which is found it practically all PSUs sold today. Sometimes it's bad enough that these UPSes wreck the PSU itself. The only way to ensure compatibility is to use a true sine wave UPS, but these are very expensive and are harder to find locally.
  • ^ thank you sir, baka panget lang yun isang saksakan ko dito, kasi sa iba OKs naman haha,.
  • ^matagal ko na rin problema yan, di ko masolv solve nasa condo kasi ako, hehe sarap hawakan lalo pg naka paa parang may vibrator haha
  • ^pampagising na lang pag antok na hahaha
  • ^ thank you sir, baka panget lang yun isang saksakan ko dito, kasi sa iba OKs naman haha,.


    Wag mo na lang hawakan PC mo para di ka ma-shock hehe. ;-D

    Pero sa totoo lang yung old PC ko parang nakaka-shock rin nun pag hinahawakan kaso yung mga piyesa nun walang kwenta. Yung current build ko (Seasonic rin PSU, pero EVO M12II 750W) walang problem sa shock kahit saan hawakan.
  • Malakas lang ang shock pag naka off pc
  • Help mga sir, broke the brand new TV and the GPU(GTX 960) when I plugged in my HDMI(TV) connector to the GPU, nag spark yung GPU halfway pa lang nung iniinsert ko cable, tapos nawala display, both on the computer and on the TV. Buti na-replace yung TV(used for 1 day), GPU no display na pero naikot fan, may parang burnt part dun sa likod ng GPU.

    Now my problem is, baka ma-ulit yung ganito if bumili ako 2nd hand na GPU. Yung lumang TV naman na ginagamit namin dati hindi nagkaganito kapag ikinabit HDMI. Should I buy AVR for our TV? Yung PC ko wala AVR, naka Surge Protector lang(Huntkey), sa TV naman naka switch breaker(Panther).
  • Another inquiry, ano kinoconsider/tests before buying 2nd hand GPU? May nakita ako na RX 580RX 570(2nd hand), retail price is 5k/4k, pwede na kaya 'to? Or mag GTX 970 na lang ako which is older but with the same price.. yung AMD siguro galing sa mining, so magtatagal kaya 'to if gagamitin ko for everyday use(around 3-4 hrs a day, casual gaming, streaming via HDMI on 4k TV).

    Another 1, anong brand ng HDMI(5 meters) pwede mag stream ng 4k contents? D ko talaga sure kung HDMI yung source kaya nag spark yung GPU, or baka grounded?
