  2. On average, temps pre update have been around 50c for both the CPU and GPU. Since this accursed update, the GPU has remained the same while the CPU temps have risen by 15-20c depending on the game, idle temps are higher as well, around 10c. Ryzen 1800x EVGA hybrid 1080 Have not read anything on it being a thing, thought maybe someone would have heard.

  4. Need help

    Hello Everyone. I am a hardware guy to the core so software is my biggest weak point. My PC won't boot to windows 10. When I turn the PC on it will go to a black screen with a flashing cursor. I tried changing the boot order, didn't work. I turned off all overclocks on my cpu and memory. Any other ideas on what I should do guys?
  5. I have been trying to setup PCI passthrough on an HP Z620 System and am getting a system crash and reset if I install AMD drivers on the virtual machine that the AMD graphics is passed to. This is the error I get. (Picture attached) Details: OS = Proxmox Virtual Machine = Windows 10 System = HP z620 GPU = AMD R9 290 CPU = Xeon E5 2620 Does anyone have any idea how to either disable the reset on error function or fix this issue?
  6. I am currently having an issue with updating Windows 10. It has given me an error saying a bad driver that doesn't exist on my pc. I did a system search for Dell Storage Manager Driver and nothing showed up. I went to the Microsoft site forum and don't really want to reinstall Windows again. Any ideas?
  7. 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
  8. I wonder if someone can help me with a problem. Im running Windows 10 x64 Pro and when my PC monitor goes into standby the desktop icons all change position. Now ive had to use desktop ok to keep reverting back the icons but i shouldnt need to use a third party software to fix this issue. Does anyone know the cause or a fix? Thanks.
  9. So today I tried to talk with some friends from discord but I couldn't talk to them, although I could hear them. Yesterday was working fine Things I noticed: Under sound settings > Recording, my headset microphone's bar doesn't appear green when I talk If I enable "Listen to this device" option, I can hear myself just fine. But not on any other app I tried Under my headset properties, under the levels tab, I can't ajust the level and it is at 0dB Control Panel\Ease of Access\Speech Recognition\Set up microphone gives me a "The wizard could not start" error Things I tried: unplug and replug microphone unplug and replug headset unintall and reinstall drivers (both realtek ones and my headset's) restart pc multiple times tried different mics but again didn't work on other apps (only with "Listen to this device" option) checked on all other apps's options that the appropriate device for input audio is selected Any ideas on what I should check next? P.S. I think this is the first time I tried to use a mic after the windows 10 update 1803. So maybe something went wrong with the update?
  10. Laptop BSOD Help

    Hey! So recently (not after a windows update, or driver install, just randomly) my computer shows a BSOD when I get to the windows sign in page. It shows one of the following: - SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (nds.sys) - ATTEMPTED_EXECUTE_OF_NOEXECUTE_MEMORY - DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILIURE Also, my computer has been experiencing issues where my usb devices randomly disconnect, and the ports do not respond (until I restart). My temporary fix is to start it in safe mode, then restart it to make it normal as well. My updates arent working (0x8024001e) Help. Please.
  11. About 3 months ago I started having issues with my computer starting up. I was running windows 7 and it would have a few different symptoms, sometimes it would boot up with just a black screen with a cursor other times it would come up with please wait freeze for about 5 minutes then BSOD. I can boot into safe mode just fine, but system restore wouldn't work. Running startup repair finds nothing wrong. Luckily I do daily backups of my computer so I would just restore it from the backup the night before. And it would boot up just fine. Unfortunately it would do the exact same thing a few days later. (I don't reboot or turn my computer off very often it may just be the next reboot) I figured this was an strange software issue. so I decided to do a complete reinstall of windows and go to windows 10. It worked find for a few days including multiple reboots (installing software etc) unfortunately today I installed some software that required a reboot and first I got stuck on a black screen with the spinning windows 10 startup circles. I did a hard reset and not I am stuck on my favorite black screen with a cursor on startup. Any ideas where to go from here? Guessing is maybe a hardware issue? I did replace my ram in the middle of all of this so we can cross off bad ram. Apart from the startup issues everything appears to be running just fine if I can get windows booted, it runs perfectly. Edit Oh I have also tried disabling all non Microsoft services still gets a black screen on bootup
  12. OC Problem Windows 10, Version 1803

    I recently updated my version of windows 10 to version 1803. Prior to doing so, overclocking my Ryzen 7 1700 to 3.9 GHZ has been working since I bought the processor 1/2 a year ago. The update made it so that my pc would crash every time I got my processor to run at any frequency higher than 3.4 GHZ. I thought I had busted my processor, but after rolling back the update to the version of windows I had before (version 1709) my system was working just as well as before. I just wanna see if anyone else is having CPU problems with with windows 10 version 1803
  13. Windows 10 Application Window Issues

    Hi there. Since the last Windows update (about two days ago), I'm having issues with application windows - more specifically, maximizing the window doesn't fully maximize it. It appears to be, but there is a thin bar of my background at the top and the very bottom is hidden by my taskbar. I haven't been able to find a way to fix this. I have a dual monitor setup - one 1440p monitor and a 1080p monitor. I don't know if it's relevant. Any suggestions? My graphics drivers are up to date, I believe.
  14. Hey People of LTT! I am a 20 years old Information Sciences student from Holland. And I have been using Macbooks for the majority of my life. R.I.P mac However my Macbook pro (2016) just died a few weeks ago. I bought it from an unofficial third party seller and they were not able to repair it, nor did they have any in stock so they refunded it and I am now on the hunt for a new laptop. The budget for my laptop is around 1000 Euros. And for a 1000 euros I cannot find a Mac that fits my needs. Also since I use Windows for most of my uni assignments I thought it would be a great idea for me to switch to a Windows device. What I do with my laptop My laptop is used for: Light programming, c# within Visual Studios Note taking Data analysis within Rsuite Webshop management via tools such as Magento, SquareSpace etc (Light HTML etc) Office work, mostly in Gsuite. Netflix Light gaming, Hearthstone, old point and click adventures. Would love to get into photoshop but is not a hard requirement. Use in public transport, I travel quite a bit so a decent battery would be highly preferred. Other wishes Since my laptop is my main computer I do not mind to go over budget a little bit. A 12,5/13/14 inch screen is highly preferred, SSD storage only is preferred too, I think I would benefit from 16GB of RAM but I am not sure. Oh and if possible I would like a backlit keyboard if that is possible. Laptops I have already checked out I have looked into: a Lenovo T480, looks solid and within my price range. So if you guys have any suggestions I would love to hear them! Thanks in advance.

  17. I just upgraded to a shiny new Ryzen 2700x from my sandy bridge i5, and I am experiencing a strange problem. On my PC I have a RAID 0 array that has my operating system on it, and 2 1TB HDD, for mass storage. I formatted the array and rebuilt it, and after that I reinstalled Windows 10 on it, and also booted into windows, and no problem occurred. After that, i plugged in my 2 HDD, and suddenly i was not able to boot into windows anymore, and I got an error message that said to 'insert proper boot device'. I checked my boot order, and my raid array was first. Still nothing. After that, i tried booting into my raid array directly from the BIOS(just for reference, I have an asus ROG x470 crosshair 7 hero board) with the boot override, and i still get the same error. If i unplug both of the HDD, i can boot just fine into Windows. Any ideas on how to fix this?
  18. Scanning and repairing C Drive

    Hey everyone, I have encountered this problem for quite a while now and it is that whenever I boot up my pc, it tells me to wait a couple of seconds or it will scan and repair my C drive. I tried fixing this but I cannot get rid of this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. So I was spec'ing out Workstations for my company and its the need of building an editor/animator rig that needs to run Unity3D editor, After Effects, 3Ds Max. Unfortunately corporate has us forced to go through only Dell. This led me to build a workstation with a Xeon CPU and a Quadro card, however now dell has two versions of windows 10 pro, both are what's called "Windows 10 Pro for Workstations" however one only supports 4 cores and you need to spend an additional $105 to support more than 4 cores. Now I find this weird and feel like its a way for Dell to charge even more (No way to get an i9 or Thread Ripper outside of an Alienware machine). Does anyone know anything about this special version of Windows 10 Pro Workstation that one only supports 4 cores and one supports more?
  20. Hello, I have an issue where even when I restart the computer, or just shut down etc, Chrome keeps opening back up to where I last had open as soon as Windows starts up. I can't seem to find any settings, Chrome is not part of the Windows startup schedules and yet it still starts everytime! It is quite annoying. Please help! Thanks!
  21. Hope this is the correct platform to ask this question. I own a Dell XPS 15 (2016) model with a 512 GB internal SSD and 16 GB Ram installed with latest windows 10 update. I want to dual boot my laptop with Ubuntu, but I don't want to install Ubuntu on the same internal SSD drive. I was thinking of buying an external Lacie SSD thunderbolt for Ubuntu so that I can connect it with Thunderbolt port and using it along with windows 10. Hence Dual booting in 2 different drive ( Windows 10 in Internal SSD, Ubuntu in External SSD). I want SSD for faster performance. I was using the Oracle VIrtual box on windows 10 for Ubuntu, but the performance is not what I expected. I can try to do it myself but it's a really huge investment so I am worried about damaging the SSD or my laptop in some way. My Questions: Is this a good idea? What are the shortcomings? Any disadvantages to laptop or external SSD? I know that External Drives have a shorter lifespan. So can anyone suggest any Desktop HDD/SSD which has a good lifespan? Is there any tutorial for this? Best way explained somewhere: A walkthrough maybe?
  22. Hello everyone, I currently have a Windows 10 pc with one hard drive which is 2TB. Not long ago I found my old laptop hard drive 2.5" and decided to install it into my pc. So I did that, connected it to the SATA 3 port, hooked it up to power and boom it showed up on windows as a second hard drive. Ok, this is where it gets weird. I shut down my computer and when I turn it on again to see my pc (in windows) it doesn't show up? Windows basically is deciding when it see's the hard drive and when it doesn't. Or is it because not enough power is being supplied? I really don't know and would appreciate if anyone could help me out. Cheers,
  23. Windows 10 key question

    I downloaded windows 10 from their website but I need an activation key, I found a free key online but is there a chance I can get a virus from the activation key? I know it sounds stupid but I'm OCD about my computer not having viruses on it, so i just want to know if its possible to get a virus from it, thanks!
  24. Would it be possible to load the three big Operating systems (i.e. Windows 10, Mac OS, and Linux) onto a single system by putting each operating system on its own M.2 Drive? This is more of a question of is it possible and how rather than a question about whether or not its a 'good idea' as that typically involves the consideration of price.
  25. I just built a new gaming PC. The CPU, motherboard, PSU, and RAM are all new. I bought a second, Western Digital Blue 1TB HDD. Windows 10, and all of my other files, are installed on a different disk that I carried over from my first PC. I just wanted two disks. Well, Windows doesn't recognize the new Western Digital. If I go to Disk Management, the new 1TB disk shows up as Disk 0 with a black bar above it. It also says, "unallocated." If I right click on Disk 0, the options for New Spanned Volume and New Striped Volume are greyed out; I can't click on them. What I can click on is Convert to Dynamic Disk, Convert to MBR Disk, Properties, and Help. No other right click options are available. What do I need to do? If I need to provide additional information, please tell me what needs clarified. I'll do whatever I can to facilitate someone smarter than me solving this problem.
