    Question about formatting

    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?

    FPS issue GTX 1070 and 8700K

    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.

    FPS issue GTX 1070 and 8700K

    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.

    Nvidia Driver Manual Rollback

    Bump, need help with this!

    Nvidia Driver Manual Rollback

    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?

    Do you guys think I could flip this for a profit?

    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.

    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.

    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?

    How to properly clean gunk off monitor

    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.

    Need help with a clean uninstall and then install

    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?
  14. So after I did a CPU mobo swap from my 6700k and Asus pro gaming z170 to my 8700k and gigabyte gaming 7, I noticed that my windows install seemed a bit wonky so I unplugged all of my drives except my os drive and reinstalled windows after formatting that drive. Now with the fresh windows install I still notice that things are wonky? Do you think it could be from my other drives? Like on discord my voice apparently makes this alien noise, my games stutter quite badly, etc. So my question is: how do I completely wipe all of my hard drives and ssd's so that nothing is left over from the previous windows install so that nothing can interfere with this new install? Will formatting all of my drives and deleting all of the partitions do the trick?

    CPU underclockes itself to 0.77 GHz

    Try going into your bios and disabling intel adaptive thermal monitor and see what happens, worked for a friend of mine who had a similar problem.
