  1. Its a very old keyboard but it does have grey and black themes built in. I'm more curious if it works than anything
  2. Just out of curiosity, does Hacker's Keyboard make a difference (assuming you're not on one of those iThings) Last time the forum had weird editor issues, hacker's keyboard was fine for me since it sent emulated physical keyboard inputs instead of virtual keyboard inputs. Might be worth a shot, and it IS a neat keyboard

    Asus ez flash Freezing

    You may also want to try different USB ports or even a different flash drive

    Asus ez flash Freezing

    By root of the drive, I mean not in any folders or anything. its still freezing? That's weird. I know it does freeze for a little bit once selecting the file, but mine got unstuck after a couple seconds. Maybe try 0901... https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/SocketAM4/ROG_STRIX_B450-I_GAMING/ROG-STRIX-B450-I-GAMING-ASUS-0901.zip My brother has this exact same board and I know their updates can be done, since he's on the latest build now.

    Pretty much, just open up the ZIP and drop the contents into the root of the flash drive. Make sure the flash drive is fat32 formatted, I've bricked my asus laptop by having them formatted as NTFS. I'd grab one of each big version (IE version 1xxx, 2xxx, etc) and just try them until one works. I had to go pretty far back on the board I was working with.

    I've had the same issue with a customer's asus board. You're trying to go too far forward with one update. Update to one of the older versions and then to the latest. If you're still freezing, try smaller jumps in versions.

    Making a Desk Drawer Case - Part 2

    Amazon's search is next to useless, so you'll need something from ebay. Since ebay LINKs are not allowed, try the title "Momentary Switch Lock, Keyed Alike, Key Removable in OFF Position, with 2 Keys" Turning on the computer would be the same action as starting a car, insert key, twist, and it springs back. It'd be as simple as connecting the two terminals to the pwr button header on the motherboard.

    DBAN and Windows install on same USB drive?

    There's no need to secure erase or dban anything then, it won't do anything more than just deleting partitions as far as you're concerned. Before you reinstall though, I'd download Crystal Disk Info and check the health of your drives. If everything looks good, make a windows installer with the media creation tool, shutdown, and boot to the flash drive. Once you're in the windows installer, just click next and stuff until you get to a screen with Custom or Upgrade, choose custom Once in the custom screen, delete every partition off every drive until every drive just says "unallocated space" Then select the SSD and click next, and you're on your way to a fresh copy of windows!

    DBAN and Windows install on same USB drive?

    You will need to put it on a USB unfortunately. I'm not aware of any methods of putting two bootable things on a USB drive, so hopefully another user sees this thread and has some advice. Personally, I'd just "clean" the drives by deleting their partitions during windows install. The only difference between deleting partitions and wiping the drives fully with secure erase or dban is that if someone were to take the drives out of the system and run special software on them, they MIGHT recover some old data. Both wiping the drives and deleting the partitions during an install will both yield the same results once you begin to install windows, so unless you're worried about someone getting old data, just delete partitions during windows install. ALSO, I do remember that a few motherboard actually have a secure erase program in the BIOS, I'd look into that. Don't wipe them before you make your windows installer though!

    Cheap refurbished last-gen flagships for under $350??

    I'd personally go for the LG given that its the only one that has a headphones jack...

    DBAN and Windows install on same USB drive?

    Don't DBAN SSDs. You'll want to use Secure Erase to wipe them (and HDDs while you're at it, they finish quicker) Parted magic and I think even just a ubuntu live USB can secure erase disks. If you're just reinstalling windows and not worried about someone scanning the HDD for old data, just delete every partition during the install phase and you'll start fresh.
  12. Disabling the GPU involves desoldering or knocking off parts. I'd steer away from that unless it is a last resort.

    520W for a Vega 56?

    I've got a vega FE and a delidded and liquid cooled 6 core i7. My system only has a 600W PSU, and it has no problems even with heavy overclocks. 520W should be totally fine for your build.

    Use a keyswitch to enable the computer. User inserts the key and turns it to turn on or turn off the computer. Removal of the key disables the ability to turn it on or off

    Changed to a new mobo and now my pc wont post

    Windows 10 will platform jump just fine. As for the no POST, the motherboard might need a BIOS update, or it might just not support the CPU.
