  1. Custom Gaming keybords

    I know Linus covered this in a video but I was wondering is there a way to make a keyboard like the Ideazon's Merc keyboard cause I did have to buy a new keyboard (Logitec G105) last year when the windows update killed the driver for it sure there is a work around but that doesn't work anymore and you have to disable driver updates and that doesn't last to long when windows pushes an update out.,yeah I know it's an old keyboard and it doesn't have rgb or mechanical keys but man this board was great for me when I gamed and now I don't game as much on my pc due to the fact my hand gets cramped when using the standard WASD layout and I really don't want to go back to using the arrow keys to play battlefield. This is what it looks like

  3. Help with LG 34UC79G-B

    So the monitor I have is in the title, and my problem with it is that the monitor does not remember my aspect ratio setting for each input. I have my PC plugged in via Display Port, and want that running in Full Wide (21:9), and I also have my Nintendo Switch plugged in via HDMI, and have to set the aspect ratio in the OSD to Original (16:9) every time I switch to that input, or else it leaves it on Full Wide and attempts to stretch the Switch's image to 21:9. Is there any way for me to have it remember the Aspect Ratio in the OSD, or do I just have to deal with manually switching every time? I have tried setting it to Original on the Display Port input, as the Original setting just maintains the aspect ratio of the input device, and my computer is actually capable of outputting natively in 21:9 unlike the Switch, but for some reason, whenever I go to the Switch input, it always resets to Full Wide.

  5. PC doesn't remember me.

    Hello I'm new. After having my pc fixed, it seems to be a bit strange. Google Chrome no longer opens, and Internet Explorer's bookmarks are missing. When I tried to download Chrome, a message said that there was an error and I had to contact the vendor. And my desktop background was missing. It was a blank white screen, but the icons were preserved. I have no idea what to do, so can you guys help? Thank you.
  6. So this build is going to be used primarily for editing and occasional 3D work (Blender). Are there any apparent issues/improvements I can make without drastic price increases? Location: U.S. Budget: Preferably under 1200 I'm planning on running 2 monitors with this build, and I'd probably want one of these to be a color correct monitor in the future.

  7. Hello, I just recently did a build on my first pc, and i came across an issue. When i tried to install the win 10 after installation my pc wont boot the win10 it just goes back to black screen and only option is F1 which makes you go back to the Bios. I tried to install it to my M.2 drive. The process goes all the way to the auto restart.

  8. I recently acquired an Intel x540-T1 10gb Ethernet card from my school. I can't get the thing to be recognized in any OS. I've tried the windows ixgbevf installer as well as the ixgbe installer but it won't recognize the cards so I tried it on CentOS which is where I'd ideally have it in the end but the rpmbuild always returns "error: static declaration of '_page_frag_cachedrain' follows non-static declaration" and "error: unkown field 'ndo_change_mtu' specified in initializer". I honestly have no idea what either of these mean and I'm super confused because I haven't dabbled in much server tech before. It would build and seemingly install fine on Mint and Ubuntu but I can't seem to get it to work on CentOS. The bios recognizes it as an unidentified network card running in an 8x slot. I'm seeing a bunch of people claiming to have gotten it working on CentOS online and I'd like to be one of them! I'd be really grateful if anyone could help point out where I've gone wrong! I went with the GNOME installation of CentOS 7 if that helps. here's the driver I'm using, https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/18700/Ethernet-Intel-Network-Adapter-Virtual-Function-Driver-for-Intel-10-Gigabit-Ethernet-Network-Connections?product=58953 I'd also be open to any suggestions for other linux distros as well like mint or ubuntu if anyone has any suggestions. I could install the driver but never get it to recognize the device.
  9. I had been needing to do maintenance on my Lenovo y50-70. So I ordered those IC Graphite thermal pads, as well as some backup Arctic-MX4, and some soft silicone thermal pads, cleaned out the dust from the vents and fans and cleaned off any excess thermal paste before applying the IC graphite thermal pads onto my CPU and GPU, but now my thermal performance is significantly worse? I made the mistake of doing maintenance on my friends laptop, but instead I used Arctic-MX4 on the CPU and GPU, and I have the same issue. In both instances, I reconnected all appropriate cables, made sure I evenly coated the dies, but I just didn't test before I did the work. Does anyone know what I did wrong?
  10. Okay, so I posted on this forum a couple times over the past week or so and I've narrowed down my choices to four laptops. I am incredibly indecisive and I don't know which to choose. Just please tell me which one to pick. The most important factors to me are build quality (I want it to last at least 4-5 years), battery life (doesn't have to be exquisite, just not trash), and other than that, I plan on using it for internet browsing/streaming, some programming, some photoshop, microsoft office, and maybe some light gaming. If you know of any laptops other than the ones below that fit my preferences for under $700, please let me know. Oh and also, cant be to big of a screen I'd like to be able to take it on the go easily, so preferably around 13 inches (not too small either though), and no bigger than around 14 inches. So here are my options in no particular order, just pick one and tell me to buy it please: 1) Dell Inspiron 13 7000 7370 Laptop - (13.3" Touchscreen IPS FHD (1920x1080), 8th Gen Intel Quad-Core i5-8250U, 256GB SSD, 8GB DDR4, Backlit Keyboard, Windows 10) 2) Dell Inspiron 13 5000 5379 2-IN-1 Laptop - 13.3" TouchScreen FHD (1920x1080), 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8550U, 256GB SSD, 8GB DDR4, Backlit, IR Webcam, Windows 10 (Certified Refurbished) 3) ASUS ZenBook 13 Ultra-Slim Laptop, 13.3” Full HD, 8th gen Intel i5-8250U Processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB M.2 SSD, Backlit keyboard, Fingerprint Reader, Windows 10, Grey, UX330UA-AH55 4) ASUS VivoBook F510UA Thin and Lightweight FHD WideView Laptop, 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 128GB SSD+1TB HDD, USB Type-C, ASUS NanoEdge Display, Fingerprint Reader, Windows 10
  11. So this is probably a bad idea I know, but I'm gutting my craptop because its old and slow and I want to rebuild it. Its pretty big and thick. I'm mounting my fan case for additional width making it 2" thick and 15" to 17" wide. So I'm starting off hunting a low profile mother board. It needs to have HDMI out, USB 3.0, Ram support for at least 16 gigs, Support for an I7 Cpu, and support for an External Graphics card. Dedicated audio out and in would be a bonus. Support for my laptops soon to be touchscreen a must. I don't know much about building PCs. I helped build one once when I was a kid and I watched a bunch of youtube on the subject (Mostly linus tech tips of course). After a quick google search I think I found one that works http://bcmcom.com/bcm_product_MX110HD.htm But I'm unsure if it supports external graphics or my laptop screen. Any and all advice would be appreciated thanks And assuming it works and turns out cool I'll be sure to make a post of the finished build thanking all who assisted
  12. Windows 10 Terribly Corrupt

    So I have a copy of Windows 10 education, and after upgrading my pc, my ddr4 ram was causing issues. I got it replaced, but that didn't fix built in os errors. Lots of things don't work right, consistent crashes (I bet Fire fox will crash while typing), BSOD's (MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, Some others) It is so badly damaged that the built in recovery tools fail. I am trying to use the creation tool to upgrade the pc here, after I will burn a DVD. Any thoughts? I have used whocrashed and blue screen view, and neither nailed down a driver.

  14. Driver for my AKG k702's

    I'm a gamer and I do like my music/movies but so far I've used a Fulla 2 and an M2 and I'm very unhappy while gaming with my cans as I can't hear footsteps until they're on top of me. My friends using M50x's with a Fiio E10k and pinpoints much better than I do. I'm looking for advice and direction. Thanks in advance, VVord
  15. Hello everyone, so I have a gigabyte geforce gtx 1070 windforce oc edition and today when I was plugging in an hdmi cable, the graphics card just stopped working. I have another monitor that was already plugged into through the dvi port. I have tried restarting the pc, taking out the graphics card and putting it back in, and unplugging and plugging in cables and nothing has worked. When I go into the bios, it says that nothing is in the PCI slot. If anyone could help me with this it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  16. Hello, I would like to start off my saying I have little to no knowledge in this area so please be gentle. I am coming here for help with frequent blue screens I cannot fix. I have gone through multiple threads of people with similar problems and cannot resolve anything. I bought the Xeon around 8 months ago, over clocked it the first day; it was completely stable temp wise, and hadn't blue screened until the frequent BSOD's started. There is nothing (I can remember) that changed coinciding with the crashes, no new hardware, same mouse, keyboard, and headset as when I got the pc. I have the most recent Bios from Asus and always update my Nvidia drivers (the crashes have occurred on multiple different gpu drivers). I have never run any extreme anti-virus software, but have never got a virus: windows defender has never found anything on my PC. Just to be safe I completely wiped my pc and re-downloaded windows from scratch. System Specs: CPU: Xeon X5670 over clocked to 4.2Ghz CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i RAM: 24Gb of Corsair DDR3 at 1033 Mhz (in 6 sticks) MoBo: Asus P6X58D-E GPU: EVGA Gtx 1070 FTW Western Digital Blue 1TB HD & Kingston 240GB SSD I will get either IRQL_NOTLESS_OR_EQUAL and KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED when playing games (have had one crash not in game). Total War, Pubg, Fallout NV and others so it isn't related to one game. I first thought it was an overheating problem but after running Intel Burn Test, FurMark, and Prime 95 I had no throttling on Cpu or Gpu. I ran Intel Burn Test 3 times, and while I did have some freezing, no cores got over 75C. FurMark didn't get my Gpu above 70C and after 2+ hours of Prime 95 all cores sat in the 60's. I read that RAM problems can cause the exact Blue screens I am having, but I ran memtest and had no errors, also resat all RAM sticks. I also downloaded and ran BlueScreenview. The cache has cleared so I don't have the file from BSV, but the causes for crashes were: hal.dl, and ntoskernel.exe. I can use the PC more to get a few more crashes for a new log, if needed. Thank you for reading, I appreciate any help and can provide any extra info.
  17. Current build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Yose/saved/ymZNnQ Hello! First I'd like to thank you for taking your time for reading! With the acquisition of a new job, I've decided that I want to upgrade my current PC, or build a like-new one with the budget I'll have which will be roughly $900~. I'm a pretty hardcore gamer so I'm not going to bore you with a list of all the games I play. After realizing how big my current computer is, it's come to my attention that I simply don't need all of the extra space that I currently have in my case. I also have a micro-atx motherboard already, so I've been looking at a micro-atx form factor to save space and make travelling easier. However, after some light research, it seems that micro-atx cases are targeted more towards water-cooled builds. I'm not comfortable with having water in my computer (yet) so I'm wondering if air cooling will be fine, despite the decrease in amount of airflow with a smaller form factor. Also not sure if I need to upgrade my CPU or GPU first, or both. I currently use one monitor that uses a display port, and I also have another monitor that uses the older hdmi port on my current graphics card. Possible parts: InWin 301 (https://amazon.com/InWin-301-Black-Tempered-Micro-ATX/dp/B07229QBYM). gtx 1060 (https://amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-GAMING-Support-06G-P4-6163-KR/dp/B01IPVSLTC/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1526596445&sr=1-3&keywords=gtx%2B1060&th=1) i7 7700k (https://amazon.com/Intel-Desktop-Processor-i7-7700K-BX80677I77700K/dp/B01MXSI216/ref=sr_1_6?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1526596711&sr=1-6&keywords=lga+1151+cpu) ma410p (https://amazon.com/dp/B076KKWS6J/?coliid=I2CPEI2ORSH9BZ&colid=2EBMP0HR0TTFY&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it) Unknown number of RGB case fans (don't know how many I need, help please, would prefer neutral air pressure) I'd like to reuse my current PSU, motherboard, RAM, and storage and just put it in the InWin 301. Any and all help is really appreciated! Thank you!
  18. I'm going to need a new laptop for this summer and I'd like it to be able to last at least the next 4-5 years. I've been researching laptops for the last couple weeks and it's literally driving me crazy. I have no idea how to decide what laptop I need. My old laptop was a Macbook Pro, but I think I'm ready to move on from Apple unless someone can convince me to stay with them. I need a laptop that has at least mediocre battery life, but preferably better. I want it around 13 inches, good build quality, and relatively cheap (under $900). I'll be using it for mainly streaming/browsing on the internet, some programming (I don't do any programming now, but I plan on building an app this summer), some photoshop, light gaming, and stuff like microsoft office. Some of the options I was looking at are: - ASUS VivoBook F510UA FHD Laptop, Intel Core i5-8250U, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, USB-C, NanoEdge Display, Fingerprint, Windows 10, Star Gray (F510UA-AH51) (I want the one with HDD and SSD, is this an upgrade that I’d be able to do myself, and if so would it be more wrthwhile/cheaper to do it myself, or should I just buy the pre-upgraded one?) - LG gram Thin and Light Laptop – 13.3" Full HD IPS Display, Intel Core i5 (8th Gen), 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Back-lit Keyboard - White – 13Z980-U.AAW5U1 (This one is a bit on the expensive side for me. Is it worth it though?) - ASUS ZenBook 13 Ultra-Slim Laptop, 13.3” Full HD, 8th gen Intel i5-8250U Processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB M.2 SSD, Backlit keyboard, Fingerprint Reader, Windows 10, Grey, UX330UA-AH55 - Acer Swift??? (I don't know much about this or what model I'd get, but I just saw one on Amazon for a pretty good price and the specs looked pretty good) - Dell Inspiron 13 7000 7370 Laptop - (13.3" Touchscreen IPS FHD (1920x1080), 8th Gen Intel Quad-Core i5-8250U, 256GB SSD, 8GB DDR4, Backlit Keyboard, Windows 10) - ASUS ZenBook 13 UX331UN-WS51T Ultra-Slim Laptop 13.3” FHD WideView Touch display, 8th gen Intel Core i5-8250U Processor, 8GB LPDDR3, 256GB SSD, Nvidia MX150, Windows 10, Backlit keyboard, Fingerprint (This one is a bit above my price range, so I'll probably not get it, unless someone has some really convincing reason) Could you please tell me the pros and cons of what I listed and anything else that might fit into my preferences. Also, if you think that any of what I listed does not match my preferences, could you let me know why? Thank you so much for any help you can give, I just need to make a decision already. I want to be able to make a purchase by the end of the day today.
  19. Alright, so, I had a different post which with in 2 days was eaten by other posts and wasn't getting anymore responses but I had a follow up question, the last post like was this btw, so to sum it up, I have a pc with a good processor, 16gb of memory, and to top it all off I apparently have or am using intel integrated graphics, so I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to boost my experience in games more GPU dedicated. " Wait so then... what is this for??? and if that doesn't matter, is there something I can do??? like in the game settings change something so that it relies more heavily on the CPU instead of the GPU is this something that could be improved with overclocking?" please go to the prior post and check out the spec's and stuff, and i'm sorry for kind of reposting it had been 2 days since my response with no reply.
  20. Hello, In late January, I installed a new AMD X4 880k CPU. Ever since then, I have been randomly getting annoying BSOD screens. The usual one that occurs is KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE. The two other ones are DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL and DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION. I can get these up to 6 times a day and I can get none a day. I can get these when I'm on the PC and I can get these in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping. I have never had the BSOD when I'm gaming, though. I have scrolled through all kinds of solutions on the internet, but none of them have worked. All of the articles say it is something with my drivers. I suspect it is with my CPU drivers because the errors started the day I installed the CPU. I have re-seated my CPU, I have reinstalled the CPU drivers in device manager, and I have even done a clean install of windows. I am sick and tired of this error happening every day and I would greatly appreciate anyone who helps me out in this process. My PC specs and the data from event viewer is listed below. Thanks, Landon Event Viewer data: (The same data in event viewer is listed even for different BSOD screens) Log Name: System Source: Kernel-Power Event ID: 41 Level: Critical User: SYSTEM Task Category: (63) Keywords: (70368744177664),(2) PC Specs: CPU: AMD X4 880k GPU: GTX 750 Ti PSU: EVGA 500w 80plus Mobo: Gigabyte GA-F2A68HM-HD2 RAM: 8gb G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series DDR3 OS: Windows 10 Home 64 bit

  25. So I have a computer about 3-4 years old that was my gaming PC before I got my new one, I gave it to my parents just so they have a general stuff computer and today it just randomly started beeping 2 much for me 2 count and then doing 3 long beeps and just keep working but not posting, I looked up on similar problems on the internet and people said it's probably the ram so I replaced it with an identical specs ram stick and tried booting it and still doing the same thing, when I press the power button for like 4 second to hard shut it it just boots up again The mobo is a gigabyte GA-H81M-DS2VThe ram specs are ddr3 1600 MHz which is identical to the one I had in it before it started doing this
