  1. i recently upgraded from an Ok setup, Current rig:https://pcpartpicker.com/list/s9VQ8Y Old Rig: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/tx4Q8Y The issue right now is, that my GPU spikes whenever it wants to, almost. Just having wallpaper engine up on my desktop, with nothing else really open is enough for it to spike close to 100% with high power usage, which didn't happen ever on the old rig. https://imgur.com/D9ImHsl I tried running an MSI kombustor test, got a bluescreen as soon as i started it. https://imgur.com/zJv7ELt Now I'm seeking help as I've listened to my IT friends, from which i did a Memtest, made 4 passes in 3h30min, no errors, so ram is fine. PSU was bought new today, the old one was 3years old, but new PSU didn't fix the issue, CPU is a recently released, stock cooler and no overheating issues. I also tried using MSI Afterburner to limit the power usage of the GPU, but to no success, drivers are the latest version on GPU as well, motherboard version is ''First Release'', but looked at the website and saw nothing about changes for GPU's.
  2. I've had my computer since early February of 2016, and I'm now interested in getting an upgrade, since I've started to work and get my own money, that has also introduced the freedom of buying my own games, where i now see i need better parts to run them as smooth as I'd like. Currently, I'm rocking an AMD 860K with no overclocking + Hyper212 EVO. Video Card is an MSI 750Ti, not sure what the exact model number of it is, but it has 2GB ram and 1 fan that cools it, rather small, i would say just as wide as the cooler, but a little longer. Also using a 480GB SSD from Kingston, A400 is the name of it i think, and the same hard drive since i bought the PC, which is 1TB, i use the HDD only to store some junk that requires a lot of space, windows are on the SSD. Power Supply is 300W, but it says it can peak at 350W, although I'm pretty sure that it's 300W. 8GB of DDR4 RAM from Kingston, I'd probably guess it's running at 2.3Mhz since it's old? Currently, I'm on Summer break, so i have more free time, and not at my dorm, where I'm limited to 1 monitor, so now I'm using 2 where 1 runs at 1440x900 i think and the other is 1360x768(This is an LG TV). But most often I'm using one monitor, which is the 1440x900(LG, older than the computer by a large margin, but still works as new since i got it from my parents) My budget i would guess is about 250EUR to 300EUR, my goal is to load textures faster in GTA 5 (Online), that i have started to fancy, as well as Path of Exile, Arma 3, Rust. I mainly suffer issues in GTA 5 whereas I'm going anywhere in a car, the textures take a long ass time to load, sometimes they load after i run over that chunk, or a few chunks later, and sometimes the game runs just fine. I'm running it on basically everything as low as it's gonna go, same for all the other games, except rust, for whatever reason the graphics i choose don't affect my fps so that's the one game i have no issues with, just that if i go near a Big base, something like 10x10x3 square wide base, i get only 20fps, worse if there's 2 of them next to each other. It takes a while for the fps to go back up after i leave the area and i don't have them loaded in my field of view as well. I don't need new peripherals, and i already sought for help in parts, but i didn't know my budget then, and only said i am looking for a new CPU as i thought that was all i need, but I'm unsure now. i was recommended an AB350M board, with a ryzen CPU, for which we landed on the 1200X. But i looked at the CPU specs and now i think it's not that much different than what i already have. Also, sorry for writing so much but i wanted to include all the details that would come back to me as questions later.

    Hyper 212 EVO from FM2+ to AM4

    https://www.1a.lv/datoru_komponentes_tikla_produkti/komponentes/pamatplates/filter/283-171579 But some information is in Latvian, but i gave you a link where the motherboards are filtered by AM4 sockets EDIT: https://www.1a.lv/datoru_komponentes_tikla_produkti/komponentes/pamatplates/asrock_ab350m_pro4 i think thats the one you mentioned, its 69euro. (The one i chose was 45) i think i can get up to that tho.

    Hyper 212 EVO from FM2+ to AM4

    Alright, ill see if i can manage the price increase for the b series boards. Thanks Just to make sure, will the stock cooler do fine during the summer with ambient temperatures being 28 average? sometimes 32.

    Hyper 212 EVO from FM2+ to AM4

    Sadly, the bracket is out of stock for my country (Latvia), and i'm pretty sure the fee would be close to the cost of the cooler. I've chosen this motherboard because of the price, i just need the system to work, nothing more. For not too demanding games like Rust, Path of Exile and very rarely, Arma 3. EDIT: And no, i haven't purchased the motherboard or the cpu yet, it's just what i've decided on. But ill seek the ab350 or x370

    Hyper 212 EVO from FM2+ to AM4

    I'm interested to upgrade my CPU, for which I've decided on a Ryzen 3 1200, and an A320 chipset motherboard, now I'm curious if my current Hyper 212 EVO air cooler (1fan) will work with this motherboards socket with the bracket i have for my current FM2+ one. Current motherboard: A68HM-P33 V2 New motherboard: ASROCK A320M-DVS R3.0 If i cannot, would appreciate a recommendation for a new cooler for this socket, not planning to overclock, just keep it warm to the touch.

    USB > Bluetooth dongle unrecognized

    Didn't work, because i already looked at the drivers on the website (i linked that same page), they're for windows Vista or 98.
  10. I bought a very small usb dongle, that would provide my Desctop PC Bluetooth, i assumed it would just be plug-and-play, but in reality, it's been a real bugger to deal with. At first, i thought just updating the drivers for it was all they needed, appearently not. The manufracturer doesnt have any for win10(64bit) The product page on theyre website i got from the QR code on the package itself http://esperanza.pl/esperanza-usb-adapter-bluetooth-2-0,181,422.html i tried a few methods i found that were for fixing bluetooth, like scanning the C drive, using CCleaner to clean the registry and search for the device name in regedit, wouldnt find the device full name or partially, also the model number(this was the last method listed), previous ones were hardware/software troubleshooting, uninstalling the device(driver?), then rebooting the system, Updating Generic USB Hub(all if there were more than 1), where neither method helped. https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Fix-for-Unknown-USB-Device-Device-Descriptor-Request-Failed/td-p/5973953 (I got the methods from this website) I'm not wery good at fixing software issues(even if im studying to be a programmer), i would quite apreciate some other methods to fix the issue.

    Malfunctioning hard drive?

    I have the results from the diagnostics test, and it's a PASS, so I guess it's a problem with something internally?

    Malfunctioning hard drive?

    Installed WD Data LifeGuard diagnostics, and am running an extended test currently, on my one single 1TB drive. Estimated to take 1.5hours to complete, will reply when done.

    Malfunctioning hard drive?

    That one? Yes, only in Path of Exile it crashes, most of the time suddenly. And while having the game open for now, i hear no unfamiliar sounds.

    Malfunctioning hard drive?

    About a year. bought it pre-built from a company in my country. Would have listed the specs for it here, but they updated their gear and that list is now gone.

    Malfunctioning hard drive?

    Hello, My name is Kristian, I'm from Latvia and currently have a pc mainly to play Rust or Path of Exile. I've come across a weird issue recently where while playing path of exile, my game simply crashes on itself, and I doubt it because of my systems specs (Will list below). And a few minutes before writing this post, my computer froze completely, for the 2nd time, but this time my headset was spewing sound repeats as if 1 note was played really quickly on repeat, and also changing the pitch, till shortly ~10 seconds later, it stopped and the red light on the pc stopped blinking. I'm assuming my hard drive is starting to fail, but I'm not sure so I'm asking here for help. (Images) Display 1 is 1360x768 (32bit) (60Hz) [Both are LG, but display 2 is a TV with HDMI, Display 1 is a monitor but VGA, cause my GPU doesn't have 2 HDMI, only VGA, DVI, HDMI.)
