  1. So I'm trying to make a spare laptop for work. Everyone has their own company provided laptops, and if they forget to bring it to work, drop it, pour tea on it etc, it can take us a day or two for a replacement. I'm trying to make something that can be used a temp laptop. We don't use a domain or anything like that, so there's no server to help out here and we all use office 365 on the desktop. My boss wants the computer to wipe all the logins every time it's restarted. Has anyone had any experience in this? I have found power-shell scripts for removing credentials, but the mail profiles seem to stick around no matter what I remove/delete. Any input is appreciated
  2. The boot loop issue persists even with no drives attached
  3. Yes but sometimes I get a boot loop before the bios
  4. So today my PC kicked the bucket, think there may have been a very small power surge that may have tipped something over the edge, but I can't work out what. For the last month or so my PC had been doing some odd things like not booting if my display port cable was plugged in and not recognizing USB's in the front I/O 90% of the time I try plug something in. Today I came home to my PC turned off (I never turn it off) and it was just boot looping before post. Then it started posting but would freeze before windows, now about 10% of the time (Still does the pre post boot loop) it makes it to windows and after about a minute the whole thing freezes. No shutdown, no BSOD just picture frozen in place. The power and restart button would not work either, it needed to be switched off at the back. Reinstalled windows, swapped RAM around nothing has helped. The PC NEVER froze while inside the BIOS or in windows install, even managed 5 minutes of no freezing on the fresh windows install. At this point I feel like the only hardware with issues could be the CPU or MoBo but I can't work out which and have no way to test and no budget to buy testing hardware. If you actually managed to read this wall of text then thank you :D any answers would be appreciated. Specs: i5 4690K, GTX 1070 (Problems exactly the same with and without the GPU in) gigabyte gaming 3 z97x and 16 gig ddr3 ram.
  5. Hey people, basically, I'm looking for ways to make a RasPlex client even more simple then it currently is. I understand that for most it's very easy to use, however I'm setting this up for my disabled brother, so we can hopefully move away from DVD's that are constantly lost and scratched. I'm really looking for anything, whether it's a Plex Plugin or a Rasplex Skin, anything you think might be of the slightest help (or not even that :D) would be appreciated. I've had a google around and found a couple things but maybe someone here has found a few things I couldn't. Thanks in advance for any help
  6. intel equivalent is a lot worse for the same price, and in New Zealand the pc stores are small and don't allow returns like that
  7. This sounds like what has happened, hopefully if I take it back they will be able to do the update for free
  8. Yeah, just odd that the motherboard specifically said Ryzen 2000 series ready
  9. Powersupply tested and pulled from a working pc, only the cpu fan spins up and down, gpu fan is constant
  10. I got a new set of components today, and after putting everything together, fans spin up but no display, tried multiple gpu's, reduced to one stick of ram and tried all slots and nothing. The motherboard speaker also gives no beeps. The board is Gigabyte GA-AX370M-DS3H and the cpu is a ryzen 2600. This is where I start to think maybe the board isn't on the latest bios, meaning it wouldn't support the 2000 series ryzen, except the website I bought from claims it does, the motherboard box has a big sticker slapped on it saying 2000 series ready (not printed). When turning it on the cpu fan seems to spin up and down rapidlyish. But would no post beeps and no display and a cpu fan spinning up and down point towards a bios that doesn't support it? EDIT: Just want to say for anybody in future, The board needed a BIOS update but for the RAM, not cpu
  11. I don't think an i7 would make any difference
  12. I've been looking at upgrading my GPU, as I've noticed the prices going down recently. My only concern is will upgrading to a 1070 be a good upgrade or does the rest of the system need some love? My cpu has a stable clock of 4.4Ghz So this is my current system: CPU i5 4690K @ 4.4GHz Motherboard Gigabyte Z97-X Gaming 3 RAM Corsair vengeance 4 x 4GB GPU Gigabyte Windforce GTX 970 Case Corsair Carbide 200r Storage 250GB OCZ SSD, 2TB SSHD PSU Corsair RM 750 Cooling CM Hyper 212 evo
  13. Possible, but I put the psu in the case first and then kept it off but plugged it in, that normally grounds it as far as I am aware
  14. So I built a friend a pc yesterday, first testbench was fine. Once I put it in the case it stopped booting (Fans spun but would never get a display) after pulling the cpu out (Cleaning it because holy shit AMD puts a lot of paste on CPU's) and putting it back in I started getting a display (YAY). But now, if it's been off for more then 5 minutes and I turn it on, no display for a minute or two, then it gives me the asus boot screen with prompts to go into the BIOS, but nothing will happen from there. If I turn it off and on again it boots up fine. If it was an old PC I wouldn't care but considering it's brand new it seems like something that should be addressed. I have no capability to test hardware outside this rig as I have only intel parts and this is a ryzen build. I so far assume that the RAM and GPU must be fine. Does this seem more likely to be the CPU or MOBO? because I really can't tell. Seriously any help is appreciated. I wish taking the hardware back was simple, but in New Zealand good hardware vendors are hard to come by and the people this was bought from are extremely difficult when it come to warranty, SPECS: RYZEN 5 2600, GTX 1060, ASUS PRIME B350M-A, SAMSUNG 970 EVO M2 SSD, 8Gb of DDR4 Memory
  15. So reseating the cpu seems to have done the trick.. the stock cooler had sooo much thermal paste so I cleaned the excess... Hopefully continues to work after I put it back in the case
