  1. Thanks both, Just tried and unfortunately neither of those solved the issue. I'll try the update and see how that goes. Thanks, Corban
  2. Hi, We've just deployed 40 new machines. Edge on all these machines is broken, opening it results in a white window with the title bar and nothing else. The app itself doesn't work. We've tried reinstalling the app several times with no luck, the problem is identical on all machines. We'd like a way to solve the issue without having to reinstall 40 machines. Anyone got any ideas?
  3. Seeing lots of people say this isn't possible when it definitely is. Make sure both cards are connected to the motherboard and have power. Double check your bios settings as sometimes you can disable/only allow certain display output devices. Once in windows, double check that both cards show up in device manager. Both cards use the same driver version so you're all good there. Check the Nvidia control panel and check if both cards are visible Edit: you could also just run the 2nd screen on the onboard graphics of your pc if you're not planning on gaming on it, although having 2 displays on the 970 shouldn't reduce your performance much
  4. create an account on the windows pc for file sharing. Create a share somewhere on the pc, give everyone read access to the share but set the permissions of the folder so that only you and the sharing account can read/write to the folder. On the linux machine, go to the windows machine's share and when prompted for credentials, use the sharing account.
  5. For watching movies, shows etc, you'll notice the difference between OLED and LED/LCD. OLED is great as a 2nd monitor due the burn in as your described. Your best bet is probably one of the new nvidia BFGD but those are going to be pricey. Aside from that, a good TV will be great for content consumption but not great as a second display A second monitor will be great as an extra display and pretty good for content consumption. So whichever one you'd prefer out of those options. I will note that it's a lot easier for multiple people to look at a TV than a monitor.
  6. I've never turned compression off, only turned it on, This looks to be what you're looking for though: https://www.onlinecomputertips.com/support-categories/windows/694-disable-file-compression
  7. I have a strix 1080 and the fans don't even spin most of the time unless I'm playing a demanding game, runs at about 55C under load with minimal noise
  8. I've found that a lot of prebuilt motherboards don't have many features and aren't always great when it comes to high performance components and power draw. Having a proper board with let you chance more settings and will come with more ports/features as well as allowing for better upgrades in the future. The GPU should be fine in your current board, just something you might want to look into
  9. You get RTX with the 2060. Although you're unlikely to be using it with only a 60 series card. As others have said, the V56 has more vram. 6GB is enough for most games at 1080/1440 but getting into higher resolutions, high refresh rates and more demanding games, 6gb will soon not be enough. I've always preffered Nvidia cards so I'd go with the 2060 anyway, but that's just personally preference. If you want a direct spec for spec which is better, the V56 is most likely the winner
  10. The board has a PCI-E slot so it should be good. Might be worth looking into getting an old Z87/Z97 board on ebay though
  11. That card looks pretty good, only 1 HDMI port though so you'd need to convert the DPs with you need more HDMIs. Otherwise should be good

    Enable 144hz?

    Double check your display drivers are up to date, then maybe try factory resetting the monitor, plug it into the PC, set the monitor to the right refresh rate, then set it it Nvidia CP

    Enable 144hz?

    The 1060 does support DP 1.2, what about the cable? I've seen cheap cables that aren't properly certified cause issues. It might be worth trying just the 144Hz monitor plugged in and see if it works then
  14. Windows compression. When a drive or folder is set to compress files, the thumbnails show the arrows. On the other hand though, I've seen this happen when the drive/folder is set to compress files and it just a bug

    Enable 144hz?

    What GPU are you running? Does it definitely support DP 1.2?
