  1. If you want help, you need to post all specs...
  2. What's your computer? Also, you don't need to @ me, I've got the topic followed
  3. What does your network section of device manager look like, if you enable hidden devices? (Device Manager > View > Show Hidden devices) Is this a new installation, or an old one? Is your boot drive re-used from an old one, or?
  4. What's your computer? What's your specific OS? Have you tried disabling the service for it?
  5. Pretty sure that's a DP 1.1 port, which predates DP++ needed for the use of a passive DP to HDMI cable. You'll likely need an active one, if you can find one, otherwise you'll need a DP to HDMI active adapter + HDMI cable.
  6. Not scammed, it's physics. Just because one person, or even 90% of people can hit one OC with certain settings, doesn't mean you can. Silicon quality is going to vary from one part of the wafer your chip was made from, to another. To become a certain CPU, it only needs to be able to hit the advertised speeds and nothing more. OC'ing, is running out of spec. As such, the silicon quality plays a heavy factor, and if you got the short end of the stick, your OC will either need higher voltage for the same clocks as someone else, or you just can't hit it. If you hit the lottery, you can do the same clocks with lower. As an example, my 8700K, I can get to 5.0 on all cores, off 1.35V, and 5.1 off 1.39 which is considered a bit lucky, since I think on average it needs like 1.4, or 1.41 to hit that. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. This is why it's the silicon lottery.
  7. So, check: The startup folder in Windows Open File explorer Click to enter a file path Put your path as shell:startup Make sure it's not listed there Make sure it's off under the Ease of Access Get to Control Panel (varies by Windows version) Click on Ease of Access or Ease of Access Center Click on Ease of Access Center if it was not an option above Click on Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard Uncheck Use On-Screen Keyboard It is likely one of those two things.
  8. What's the make and model of the case? What is the USB cable connected to inside the system? If you move the USB 2.0 headers over to the 3.0 header on your board (yes, you can do this, but check the pinout in the mobo manual to be safe and line things up) do the 2.0 ports work? What does device manager see? For what you should see, it's some form of USB 3.0 controller, based off whatever your board it. As an example, my Asus Prime Z390-A is an Intel USB 3.1 eXtensible Host Controller for my 3.1 Gen 1, and Gen 2 stuff, then the Nvidia 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller because I have an RTX 2070 which has a USB-C port. You may see yours coming from the AMB B450 chipset.
  9. Which specific RX 240 variant? Standard didn't include DP, and to use a DP to HDMI adapter you'll need to use an active one, depending on the card. Also, is the DP on the GPU, or on the monitor? That's super important because DP to HDMI adapters are NOT reversible, they are unidirectional.
  10. Straight up, not surprised. Standard practice for USB BT, is just let Windows do it, unless you need the software they come with. For instance, stenography machines need CSR Harmony, or BlueSoleil to work correctly, but those are the only things I'm aware of that need those terrible pieces of software.
  11. Usually those debug LEDs are actually to indicate the exact opposite, as in the part having the issue. This is the case with most motherboards. I would make sure you have CPU power connected, re-seat the CPU, etc. It's not passing the CPU POST step, so start there.
  12. Nope, swap cables. That should do it.
  13. Goddamn CSR. Uninstall the device, pull it out, reboot. Plug it into a different USB, then wait for Windows to do it's thing. Had this happen with a StarTech.com Bluetooth adapter, and apparently it's an issue with that chipset specifically.
  14. I couldn't see anything either. Which pretty much confirms it's not the drive as I expected, and is likely OPs cable.
