  1. This did it! Thanks so much. TBH this is perfect anyway, didn't need those stupid bing recommendations either way.
  2. I tried that. Didn't work. It still isn't solved.
  3. I spent like an hour, tried literally everything I could with both cortana and the search bar. I noticed one thing, I don't have a "searchui.exe" process running
  4. EXACTLY the same thing happening on my end
  5. Hey guys. I was doing some work, and I went to start an app through windows search, and for some reason it just stopped working. It was working moments before (No reset, or even letting the computer sleep, just working on photos) and suddenly when I try to search, all that opens is a grey box, and nothing shows up when I type. I tried every thing I saw to try and fix it (Besides a windows reinstall) including resetting cortana, system files check, resetting the search with the powershell command, troubleshooting. Is there anything I can do to fix this without having to reset the system? I would really like to not have to reinstall all the apps. thanks.
  6. I'm pretty sure that did it! Thank you so much, everything else I saw online was basically saying what the other responses said, but I have a camera cover on my computer, and where every other tutorial showed there being an auto dim option in the windows power settings, I saw nothing. I swore I was going insane. Edit: In case anyone else with this problem sees this, specifically you go to power, then turn off the Display Power Saving Technology. Edit v2: This fixed the problem when the laptop was plugged in, but when unplugged it persisted, however I then realized there was two intel graphics software, and one of them was obsolete, so uninstalling that one fixed it entirely.
  7. Hey guys, I just got a refurbished dell 9570 as a warranty replacement from a dell 9560, and I noticed something weird, when I have something on the screen that is darker, the overall screen brightness lowers, like you tube on dark mode, dark mode discord, etc. But when I then switch to something bright, you can tell the screen overall has lost brightness, and it takes a few seconds for the brightness to come back up again. I even measured a white screen with a light meter and it varies from about 420 cd/m^2 to only 200. is there some kind of setting causing this? Thanks
  8. If you look at the image I sent to ThatFlashCat - https://imgur.com/a/3h7SjMj - there is nothing to plug into the raid controller. The raid controller goes directly into the MB, and that cable to the right of that board is where all the SAS drives are being plugged into the MB
  9. Well like I was saying, the hard drives are plugged directly into the motherboard, however looking into the bios, it looks like I should be able to change it to AHCI. Is this effectively like having the HBA? https://imgur.com/a/Ecq5wpX - Here are the settings I have access to
  10. https://imgur.com/a/3h7SjMj In this photo you can see where the hard drive backplane plugs into the MOBO, and the raid controller right next to it
  11. I'm not really sure how to do that with the controller, its not plugged into a pci-e port but just lays on the MOBO, however in the BIOS there is an option to turn it off.
  12. What do you mean? The hard drive goes into a backplane and from there goes out with a different cable that is not sata.
  13. Hey guys! I just recently picked up an R720 server from craigslist for 350 bucks to use as a NAS with Freenas. Everything seems to be great with it, dual e5-2640s, 32 gigs of ram, the works, however the one thing I am confused about is connecting the drives. As is, the server has 8 hot swap drives in the front which connect to an SAS backplane, then go directly into the motherboard, but the part that gets tricky, is there is also a raid controller that goes direcly into the motherboard as well. A friend of mine has said that it is absolutely imparitive to not use a raid controller as Freenas uses ZFS. My question is though, since the hard drives are not setup HDD>RAID>MB but HDD>MB RAID>MB should I not be able to just disable the raid controller in the BIOS and be fine?
  14. Haha, bit of an old post, picked up a 2080 a month ago or so
