  1. I don't think I'll be able to replace it. Especially since it risks breaking 2 pcb's...
  2. So unless I physically move the chip, i cannot recover anything from it? Even when it shows the device is working properly?
  3. Like this? winbond 250288WV1G 1738
  4. My friend's hard drive's sata connector broke. I replaced the PCB of the harddrive with a new pcb from an exact same hard drive (WD Blue 1TB wd10ezez). The hard drive turns on but it doesn't boot (it has win10). I plugged it into my computer and it comes up as an unknown device. I cannot initialize it, I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, it shows it device not migrated. I tried to do a chkdsk but there is no letter associated with it. I wanted to initialize it and just recover the files, but it says "The request cannot be performed because of an I/O device error". I am at a complete loss and have been working on it for 2 days.... TLDR: Hard drive is coming up as unknown device, cannot be initialized. Thanks for your help!
  5. I have a Pixel 3 XL and have had it since February. Ever since I bought it, my Google Play Store has been not installing or updating anything. It will give me a "Download Pending" for both installs and updates. The only quick fix for it has been to disable and then re-enable the Google Play Store, which gets very tedious after each thing. I have tried all the troubleshooting Google has supplied. Any suggestions?
  6. In the past I've had a lot of random numbers message me. I used Message+ for verizon but would have to block them through my contacts. What would they receive (if anything) if I block their number? I don't want them knowing I blocked them, but I do not want to receive their messages. Thank you
  7. He wants to play Arma 3 and I'm not sure if 8Gb is enough for it.
  8. Mmm, cpu is ~$100, 16gb ram ~$100, and a new mobo could be between $50-100.
  9. Changing the cpu is pretty easy, but you may need to consider buying a new motherboard, as the socket your cpu is using is old. I'd stay away from the AMD FX series, look into ryzen or i5's?
  10. Pretty much that your CPU is limiting your GPU's power. So in order to resolve that, you may have to upgrade your CPU. The problem is also that that cpu uses am3 socket. Which limits which cpu you can buy. Unless you buy a new motherboard as well as a new cpu.
  11. If I had to guess, I'd say your CPU is bottlenecking it.
  12. Huh thats a pretty solid build! I don't need a hard drive, so I might consider changing out the case. I'll definitely keep this in mind!
  13. Hmm i mean the cheaper the better, but if the Ryzen 5 is better value then why not?
  14. This build wouldn't be for me, but they mainly only play 1080p. I was wondering what the cheapest build would be for 1080p gaming at ultra settings on games such as grand theft auto V. I really like Ryzen and would definitely consider builds with it!
