  1. So yesterday my phone was running really slow after multiple restarts and I started searching for ways to fix this. I found a forum post that suggested uninstalling google app updates so I did it. Next thing my phone says "could not load home". I try to reboot and on boot it displays to loading logo for a long time (30 mins). I tried to turn it off but as soon as it shut down it started loading again, so I waited for its battery to die because it's not removable. At home I got to recovery mode and tried it, Android logo and "no command" text. I tried factory mode and it's been loading all night. Is there a way to fix this? If not how do I reinstall it? A friend of mine instantly suggested cyanogenmod but I don't want the hassle of a custom ROM. Phone is motorola moto g 2, running android 6
  2. Yes, windows update seems to be the issue for now (hate that windows does not log this at all anywhere). Thanks for all the input
  3. I tried checking the disk already - same thing. The laptop drive is less than 6 months old - cannot be dying. Disabled services - sme thing It was literally fine before Linux.
  4. I recently installed Linux (Ubuntu) on my laptop as dual boot alongside Windows 10. Linux is running perfectly but windows is showing 100% hard disk usage. In the task manager there are no processes that are using any amount of resources and I know it is not just a visual bug as I can hear the drive spinning viciously. I tried disabling BITS and windows search - nothing changed. Have the same setup on my desktop - same thing happened just now. I have fast boot and hibernation disabled on both, so hard drive corruption shouldn't be the cause. Both ran ububtu's default installation. I tried checking and repairing the drive and again nothing changed. I'll appreciate any help. Thanks in advance
  5. This router was the top budget for the household
  6. Hello, I have a TP-link TL-wr842nd router and it keeps crashing constantly (mostly on wireless use and/or torrents) and my family keeps hard resetting it, which isn't nice for online games. Is there a way to fix this or should i look into something like dd-wrt? Thanks
  7. Hello everyone, I have a hard drive that is fairly old that I believe is starting to fail - continuous reads fail, single click when it starts working, linux loads really slow off of it. Is there any way I can continue using it as some sort of backup (I feel it may fail anytime)? Can i have it repaired and if so is it cost unreasonable? I'd love any opinion. Thanks Edit: some SMART info: https://gyazo.com/1fd55283ca4073f7fa3a43eb69af0a7f
  8. The New Razer Blade 14 for that cutting edge performance and super awesome design.
  9. I meant upscaling only in [hard to run] games and leaving everything else high res
  10. Suppose i was upscaling from 1080 to 1440 (or just playing esport gmes) is there any difference in day-to-day activities? Videos or whatever work is being done? Or does the difference in other activities not justify the cost.
  11. Hello there, I'm looking for a new monitor to go beside my 1680x1050 monitor and want to get the best possible one for my current PC that would be still be nice with a better machine. I know 1080p is the best bet, but I have read that 1440p looks much better and 144hz is way more responsive. The thing is, is there any point in buying one with an i3-3220 and a gtx 960? I know they are a lot more demanding. I'm not looking for specific models just for a general idea. Thanks
  12. The boot order is fine, it 'boots', leads to black screen and a lot of nothing
  13. Hello everyone, I want to install Linux (Ubuntu) alongside my Windows 10. I've read many guides but I still can't figure out how to do it. So here's my situation: I have windows 10 installed on an MBR formatted disk in UEFI legacy mode. I want to install Ubuntu on a separate physical hard drive, which has to have one partition in NTFS for sharing files, as I am low on space. My PC was originally in legacy compatible mode but Linux warned me that windows may become corrupted this way, so I switched it to legacy only. The installation completed but it cannot boot. How should I approach this problem? Return it to legacy compatibility and try to have the second drive in GPT (I don't know how legacy compatibility works)? Do I have to reformat windows to GPT and UEFI for easiness sake? Motherboard is Gigabyte B75M-D3H with i3 3220. (I've tried VMs but they bluescreen while installing the program itself so i have no idea what to do) Thanks to anyone that helps!
  14. So buy the best Geforce gpu I can afford and an i5 is the takeaway of this. The i3 and titan was an exaggeration to illustrate the idea but i get where you are coming from. Thanks for the info and I'm sad for the lack of info on the quadro drivers out there
  15. Hello everyone, I am building a workstation intended for software such as AutoCAD and SketchUp. I've been looking into the professional grade of hardware and after a lot of reading I couldn't figure out the difference between gamer grade and pro grade and I'm left with several questions. Processor: As far as I understand it, Xeon e3-s are meant for single socket workstations generally on the 115x sockets, e5/e7-s are meant for 4/8 socket servers on the 2011 sockets and have really high amounts of cores, similar to i3/i5/i7. On paper, though, there seems to be an overlap between the i7 and the e3 (which i figured am supposed to be looking at). The xeon has ECC memory support and better stability, the i7 usually has a slightly higher clock speed and the option to be unlocked. Is there any performance difference? Is there any reason to buy the same price xeon instead of the i7 (say e3 1270 v5 vs i7 6700) ignoring integrated graphics and not intending to use ECC memory. All benchmarks I've seen drive me towards the i7. GPU: Here I looked into specifications for the Geforce and the Quadro series and on paper the specifications are exactly the same. For example the GTX 970 and the Quadro m4000: both have 1664 Cuda cores, same fp32 performance and the same fp64 performance (the one that is supposed to matter in professional software), 1/24 that of fp32 to be exact. The quadro has 4 gigabytes more memory and double the price. Except some software features I didn't find much difference between the two and found very little info on the quadro in general. So basically I have the same questions as before. Finally I want to ask about the software itself. AutoCAD is considered a single threaded program, so I assume it doesn't need a high core count CPU but rather a very good GPU. So in theory I could have an i3 with a titan for that one? Used in 3d models. My hardware questions are not limited to this software but rather for general knowledge about the components themselves. Thanks for everyone that helps me understand this and I'm sorry if the post is a little chaotic.
