  1. So I just got done installing windows onto my friends PC. It wasn’t the first time that this PC had had windows installed. His computer was just running slow and inefficient so I suggested a clean install. So I made the bootable USB, went through the steps, deleted every partition that he had in the setup, and chose his smaller 120 gb ssd as the windows drive, let the setup happen, turned off the computer, unplugged the usb and turned the computer on. The weird thing is in his bios, the ssd doesn’t show up as a bootable option at all. It’s nonexistent. What does show up is his empty 1 tb hdd. I exited the bios and let the PC boot up only to see that in his file explorer the ssd was the only thing to show and his hdd was nonexistent. I’m confused. Did the windows install somehow put the bootable portion onto the hdd and the rest onto the ssd? I don’t see why the ssd doesn’t show up in the bios boot priority menu, or why the HD’s doesn’t show up in file explorer..... please advise!
  2. Hey yall, recently just started college and realized that it would be pretty beneficial to me to purchase a second monitor to go next to my alienware aw2518h for multitasking. So, I am looking for a 1440p IPS monitor that would look almost seemless next to it. I am assuming a dell 1440p might be the best? Also, I am looking for a good vesa mount that could hook onto the back side of a desk that has about 2 inches of horizontal clearance from the back panel of the backside of the drawer. This protrusion is about .75 inches thick. Any vesa mounts capable of holding onto 2 monitors with that type of clearance?
  3. Quick question: is formatting a hard drive enough to completely erase any potential issues from drivers or software in a previous windows install? Aka is it good enough for a “clean os install?
  4. I get what you are saying, that the choppiness that im perceiving is the g-sync not working, but I only ask as to why it isnt as choppy above 260? why does it go smooth again all of a sudden. That's my issue.
  5. It's hard to understand why this has started to happen all of a sudden because it really never has for me and it is INCREDIBLY annoying. However, my system is not bottlenecked on the cpu side and my cpu does not hit above 90% usage at really high frame rates, so it must be something else. My issue is: I can play rainbow six siege between 190-300 fps. Anywhere from 190-240 is smooth as butter and so is 260-300+ and so on. However, as soon as I hit the area of 240-260 the microstutters are unbearable. I have an alienware 240hz so it is not like this microstutter is being caused by the refresh rate of the monitor, or else wouldn't anything above 240hz have the same effect? It is really just truly that one range of fps. I'm going crazy with this one, it is super annoying.
  6. Long story short, the new 398.82 Nvidia Graphics Driver is causing me a ton of issues and microstuttering. However, I did a reinstall of windows because I thought it was the actual culprit. Now I know it is the driver that is causing my issues. I keep reading that 391.35 is the last driver before all my related issues started. Is there a way I can install that driver and all its related drivers manually? I don’t think I can rollback using the driver utility in windows because I haven’t had any other iteration of the driver installed on this instance of windows.
  7. Could someone tell me how to uninstall a gpu driver and then install a much older one from the nvidia website?
  8. Think if I sold them separate, I might actually be able to sell them for a low price and still make a better profit than selling them as a bundle.
  9. I know for a fact that if I sold the parts on their own I could make one hell of a much bigger profit. The problem is just getting people to believe it's unused. I might have to buy one and open it just to see. But it is pretty crazy, the mouse online is sold for $30 on the low end, the keyboard is $50, mousmat is $15, and the headset could be sold for like $25 and I'd still be making a $70 profit and those are still under what they are worth individually.
  10. Maybe, the keyboard does have chroma if that means anything. Tbh the only thing in that bundle that I guess you could say is outdated is the mouse.
  11. So there is this razer gaming bundle available at Walmart and other retailers: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Razer-4-Piece-Gaming-Bundle-Includes-Cynosa-Pro-Keyboard-DeathAdder-Mouse-Kraken-Headset-and-Goliathus-Mouse-Pad/977211423?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=0&adid=22222222228103787778&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=m&wl3=217695948443&wl4=pla-351065969446&wl5=9008218&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=8175035&wl11=online&wl12=977211423&wl13=&veh=sem as you can see, the bundle comes with Razer Kraken Headset Deathadder 2013 Goliathus Speed Mousepad Cynosa Pro Keyboard now keep in mind that this bundle is being priced at $89 online, but for some reason at my local Walmart it is being sold for $49. Now at that price, it make me want to buy a bunch and flip them for maybe like $75? Do you guys think there would be a market for a flip like that?
  12. So, I have been avoiding cleaning my monitor because honestly I'm just scared to break something when I tinker with it. My monitor has a few spots of what I would consider to be "gunk" something that has hardened over time and kind of solidified. It's not super thick from what I can tell but it is thick enough to where I can clearly see it on a white background. So, my questions are: How much pressure can a monitor screen take before I start to damage it, and can these kinds of spots usually be remedied with a cleaning solution and a sponge or microfiber cloth? If someone could give me some advice or link me a good knowledgeable guide, I would be greatly appreciative.
  13. I figured out that the audio thing was an issue with my board (gigabyte Airbus gaming 7 z370) but there are still really weird things going on anyway on window's end like the Microsoft edge not loading any webpages if looked up in a search engine and then clicked on. It just doesn't respond, and then when I try to switch my default search engine I get a blue window that pops up with the windows gear symbol and then it just stops there. Is it possible that the Windows file on the ISO USB stick got corrupted or something?
