    Adding more RAM?

    Nope that wouldn't work because of multiple reasons: 1 it wouldn't physical fit in your motherboard 2 the memory controller on your CPU doesn't know what to do with 3 this memory is painfully slow compared to the rest If you want more DDR4 ram, you can buy it from any local retailer
  4. I have decided to get rid of Linux and experiment with Unix a few years ago. Haven't looked back. (Disclosure: One of my laptops runs Gentoo, because I failed to read about the WiFi chipset before I bought it. But I'm fine with that - Gentoo is acceptable.)

    PC won't boot when D.O.C.P. is on

    I heard a lot of people stating that you need to have a bit of luck. Do you have the vengeance lpx memory? anyway it should work. I have the same memory and currently running with x.m.p. on. Now i remember, on my previous build i had both a docp choice and a xmp choice. You need xmp... I'm not sure how the story works with docp but i always was under the impression that you need some premium cooling ram and motherboard for that story to work .. might be wrong though

    Omron switches rant + advice needed

    Sorry for waking this old topic up but I have some news. This issue is happening due to static electricity buildup inside the switch. It is usually caused by low humidity. I literally unplugged the mouse to use my back up and a few days later tried it out again just to see what happens .Lo and behold the mouse worked again and it worked perfectly until the weather got chilly and I had to turn my AC on. A few days went by and the problem returned. At this point I realised it simply HAD to be a non-hardware issue and I found a lot of people claiming that the omron switches suffer from this static build up and the only way to fix this is to unplug the mouse and press all the buttons in order to allow the static to discharge. After I did that my mouse worked again! Now I am almost certain that my previous mice had the same issue as well and would have probably worked had I unplugged them and let the static discharge. What a weird weird querk..

    HDD Shipments Down 18% YoY

    Torrents are still popular outside of those 3rd countries, especially with all the BS limitations posed on you when you are trying to go down the legal route . Plus seeing how games are getting bigger and bigger i dont think HDD's will disappear in the near future...

    About Nvidia Recording

    Hello, I am new here. As per as i know linustechtips is the best for tech related problems and guideline or tips. I am using gtx 1070 nvidia card. Can anyone guide me through about NVIDIA gaming recording or streaming. Thanks in advance.
  10. I just put together my first "real" system that I build everything myself. Ryzen 5 2600X ASUS Prime X470-Pro 16gb 3000mhz corsair vengence RAM I tried to get the RAM to run at their full speed by turning on D.O.C.P because I've heard that's how you're supposed to do it, but it won't boot to Windows. I also tried turning off D.O.C.P and changing the RAM speed and voltage myself to 3000Mhz, 1.35 but that also doesn't work. The only way I can boot to Windows is to use the default settings. I also made sure that I have the latest BIOS. I have no experience doing this kind of thing at all so I don't want to mess with anything. Any help would be much appreciated.
  11. I wouldn't waste money buying a single other part before you rule out the operating system. Reinstall the OS and see if the problem still persists.
  12. I have Dell Inspiron 1564 (2009). My dad used it for his needs. Now I use it for light gaming and surfing on the internet. Specs: 4 GB DDR3 1066MHz Intel Core i3-330M Integrated GPU 512 GB WD BLUE His screen is broken and i should use external monitor and other peripherials. It uses a lot od space on my desk, I wanted to take everything out and make homemade case, and but everything inside. Is that good idea or I am retarded? Suggest some materials they are easy to use.

    Quad-SLI XP Retro-Build - Help needed

    So is that it - 32bit doesn't support SLI? That'll be great if that's all it is

    Advice on M.2 + PCIe adapter card

    You will need something like this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0E6-0084-00046&Description=m2 sata pcie&cm_re=m2_sata_pcie-_-0E6-0084-00046-_-Product They are more expensive as they have a controller on board. The cheap ones just connect to the PCIE interface directly.
  17. I helped a friend to transfer his pc into a new case. Everything went perfect but when we tried to turn it on, there was a problem. All the fans turned and the RGB lights went on but the display showed nothing. There isn't a Asus logo on boot and neither a Windows one. We tried anything: swap display/cable, swap ram and so on. Can you help us fix the issue?
  18. If it's as good as MX-4 then it's as good as any other thermal paste, liquid metal not being a paste. I'd like to see some further tests because I'm a tad doubtful but if true then it should be great. Like all the other pastes on the market and tests of them the difference is so marginal that it doesn't matter, you'd have to be operating outside standard temperatures to care and that's more about if the paste works at all not how thermally good it is.
  19. As someone working in the field, gearing up for a career in cybersecurity, I recommend getting your entry level CompTIA triad (A+, Net+, Sec+), then following that up with some CCNA certs focusing on security. Use those certs to get a good foot into that career field. After that start working on the CySA+. Once you reach that point, there's a lot of paths you can take on the Cisco or CompTIA cert pathways. Or you can go into Microsoft if you wanted to, though I'm a lot less familiar about what they offer. Do note that the A+ will require at least a couple weeks of intensive study, while Net+ and Sec+ will probably require a solid month or so of intensive study. CCNA will require about the same, and CySA+ will probably take about 2-3 months. I've been studying for the CySA+ for nearly 3 months now and am scheduled for that exam in a couple weeks. Study for one exam at a time, and don't obsess over it. Take breaks to let your brain rest and take stock of what you learned.
  20. Hello, When I woke up this morning and went over to my pc I had a chrome tab open called MTconnection or something. Is someone trying to control my pc? I have had this before but it stopped and I have not gotten it for awhile.

    Need opinion on my server build

    There are serval ways to calculate power you need. A good start is to check how much power your CPU can draw. On everything in your PC there will be a label with 12v - 2A, 5V - 2A or 3,3v - 2A you can multiply the voltage with the amps and get the watt, when you have done this for all the parts then you got the answer. In most cases you want your PSU to be atleast 30% more than what you actually need. Without a graphics card 500W should be enough for your build.

    Is this PC any good?

    Actually that first video did test 1% and 0.1% lows and the 9400F still won on that metric, too, and by a large margin.

    Coconut milk dropped on 1080 TI?

    You need to add chic peas, cauliflower, a few spices and some rice. Or just clean it with a soft brush dipped in isopropyl

    RSA-2048 virus

    Hello guys, I am new here so I don't know if I am posting this problem in correct topic. On my PC, one of my drives ( E: ) has problem. Please look for attached photos. All the files I was working on, has been disappeared and new shortcuts with .cc extension has been added. Show Hidden Files is checked on but nothing else is there. As I have googled it is RSA-2048 Virus that encrypts your files. Any suggestions ? I have used all the suggested Anti Malware and Anti Virus programs but no sense. P.S. Don't know from where did it spread
  26. Currently i have 2x4GB of DDR4 ram in my pc. When I try to play VR games I always run out of RAM. So can I just pop in some combination of any of these 3 old RAM sticks in my PC and get some extra RAM? Or it wouldn't help because they are old.
