  1. You can get a wire that touches the case to the PSU. A cheap way is to wrap the copper around a screw and screw it in both sides. If that works then you can make it look more pretty later on either with a wire or touching bare metal on both sides.
  2. Updates don't take long. Do them within the bios and never within Windows. Only buy motherboards with dual bios chips. You most likely will never need the second bios, but when you do you'll be more than happy. My method of updating a bios is simple and so far has never failed in 20ish years *touch wood* Go into bios, Factory reset, save and restart, plug usb with bios on, flash bios, let it auto restart, reset bios by pulling the battery, Go back into bios and do what you want from there on. and NEVER use a saved bios profile from an older bios.
  3. removed all your drives. If the bios can't find a drive to boot from them it should kick you into bios. I think you might have the boot up going too fast. There's an option within bios saying something like "wait 5 seconds to continue". What this option does is hold your boot screen for 5 seconds (where it either shows your gigabyte logo or hardware specs). Loads of people put this to 1 second without realising just how fast that is, faster than your USB can initialise. Put it at 3 seconds minimum.
  4. Relocation is done automatically, there's nothing else you can do. Once a drive starts dying then the drive is done. With each dead sector puts more strain on others which wears them out faster. Rinse and repeat. There is only a certain amount of spare space on a drive, once you've used that up you will begin to lose data. By the time you realised that you've lost data it's too late, halve of the data is corrupt with no way to recover it.
  5. I agree, you have some kind of memory leak or virus. Restart windows and keep an eye out for the leak. There's no reason for Windows to be chewing up 45+GB of ram when idling.
  6. Hello all, I have my computer with a bluray player connected to it by USB. I would like to share that resource over the network. I can share the bluray player as a storage device by doing the standard right click -> share. I even have it mapped on the other machines. However I can not read from it as if it were a bluray player. I have legit copies of powerdvd19 in order to play the blurays on both machines. They are able to see the files on the disk within the program, but acts as if it's a storage device. Thank you for your help in advance.
  7. So everything that is connected to your wifi on your modem is denied access to the internet when you play a comettive match on CS:Go ?
  8. Like Emosun said, get a new USB and download the iso on it. Boot and see if that works. Find out if the official MS one is a full fat OS or if it was sold to you buy the manufacture of the computer. If you buy a computer from Dell for instance with the OS installed then your Windows install media might be cut down and modified. Sometimes this can cause unwanted behaviour later on if the computer is modified, and sometimes will plainly refuse to run on another machine. Then there's also a recovery disk, and an install disk. They are different, but people think they are interchangeable.
  9. If your liquid is only 28c after 40 minutes with a cpu at 90+c then there's no heat leaving that CPU. There must be a problem somewhere with the mounting. Either it's not making contact or you have no pressure on that CPU.
  10. If it's been at 58% for hours / a day then it's stuck. Restart the machine and it should roll back the updates automatically. If not then Wnidows should have created a restore point just before installing the updates. You can manually do that if needed.
  11. You'll never hit 100% usage especially on Windows 10 (minus specific applications), unless if you have so much bloatware that Windows doesn't know what to do. You will constantly be putting things into the page file and constantly compress and decompress things within RAM. Your CPU will be forever waiting for the RAM to catch up because Windows is continually trying to save space.
  12. I'm not 100% sure but i have a feeling that the bottom right of the card is to do with the 12v coming from the motherboard. So I would guess that a dying motherboard took out the GPU by supplying bad power. However that's just a guess.
  13. That's a dead GPU. You could try and get it repaired, or just replace it. I personally would sell it on E-bay as broken to recoup some of my costs.
  14. If FPS doesn't change when level of quality or resolution then that normally points towards a CPU or RAM bottleneck. 8GB ram is pretty low for today's standards
