    I see both of you use Z170 chipset and Skylake cpu.. Maybe latest update messed up something, he had to reinstall windows..


    Btw speakers shouldnt, maybe woofer "might" if you have it near, but very doubtful.. I have woofer ~ 90cm away from my case and never had any issues with interference..

    Hi BT, nope it is impossible for those PC speakers to have any effect on your PC because they are magnetically shielded... Also, they can be near any tv and they won't have any effect either... Please elaborate on exactly how your PC is dead and what is occurring with it?

    regards,
    RagDoll.

    edit update: Ok, do you know how to reset the mobo bios? If not set the jumper, unclip the motherboard's battery and leave it out, unplug power from PSU and leave it for about 10 minutes, then put battery back in and power back on...

    Probably secure boot enabled in the BIOS settings.
