    pc wont recognize graphic card.

    Same thing happened to me once, I updated the BIOS on my motherboard and then it worked. I would recommend trying that.

    Help finding a pair of decent earbuds

    I am looking for a pair of earbuds that are higher quality than what I've owned in the past as I usually buy cheap $40ish pairs. I don't know much about audio specs but I want something that can play bass that won't sound like static and have good highs/mids. Do these exist in earbuds? I listen exclusively to Melodic Death Metal and Core/Djent if that makes a difference on what you recommend. I use an iPod classic so they must be wired and if possible I would like a volume adjust/track skip on the cord. I know audio can be subjective but I'm looking for a starting point. My price range is $150 CAD max, hopefully something exists in this price range.

    Should I update my BIOS?

    Re-installing Windows may be a better option than a bios update, however sometimes bios updates do provide better compatibility with certain products. Could also be a PSU issue, but my guess is as good as any. It's really trial and error when it comes to this stuff.

    Should I update my BIOS?

    How many HDD/SSD's are you using? It could be the result of a drive failing. Even though the drive may function fine when you use it, it can cause the system to hang and do other weird things. I know because I've had issues like this in the past and pulling the drive fixed my problems. Not sure if a BIOS update would help, but do so at your own risk.

    acpi bios error

    I just updated the bios and it seems to have fixed the issue. However now it kills the mouse/keyboard on the windows install screen yet they work in the bios. Any suggestions?

    acpi bios error

    I am trying to install Windows 7 from a flash drive, but it failed from DVD as well. The PSU is a Seasonic X-400FL powering 1 SSD, 2 HDD, 1 Bluray Disc Drive. It should be more than adequate.

    acpi bios error

    I just bought a Ryzen 2200G, MSI B450M Mortar and 2x4G HyperX DDR4 for my dad to use as HTPC but I'm getting ACPI error when I try to install windows. Do I have a bad motherboard or do I need to update the bios? Do I have bad RAM? How can I fix this?

    Network not showing shared folder

    Nobody knows why my folder won't show on the network??

    Network not showing shared folder

    Can someone please tell me why Windows won't share my folder? I have two computers one on Win10 the other on Win7. I was able to share before I formatted my Win10 machine but when I tried to set up a new share folder it won't show on my Win7 PC anymore. I went into the properties and made it a share folder, changed permissions to full control and checked all the boxes in the security tab as well to full control. Even in network settings I have network discovery on, file and printer sharing on, and disabled sharing password yet I do not see the folder when its empty or with items in it no matter how much I restart both machines. Please help.

    HTPC Build

    I am looking to put together a low budget HTPC for 4K playback. Budget is no more than $350 CAD including tax/shipping, but less is better. I already have Windows10, GT1030, Seasonic X460FL, SSD, several HDD's and a case. I just need CPU/MOBO/RAM and this is what I picked https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/8NrkYr I probably only need 8GB of ram - Is it better to do a single stick of 8GB or 2x4GB? Is that motherboard ok, or will it cause me issues? - the reviews I've seen are conflicting. Is there any reason I should go Intel instead of AMD? Thanks in advance.

    Is my GPU defective?

    I need it to display via HDMI, my other computer is not in the same room and the monitor I use doesn't have HDMI. Here's a bit more info... The GT 1030 works fine with the DVI port, no signal problems. I will also mention before I reinstalled windows I did test the card on the system it would be going into which was running Windows 7 via HDMI and it did work on Windows 7, but now on Windows 10 it does not. With my fresh install of Windows 10 I have now just swapped in my Radeon 6450 and was able to display a full boot into Windows via HDMI. Also tried the onboard graphics and no problems there either. The GT 1030 cannot give me a signal past the bios. Seriously, this is dumb AF, I really think its got a defect.

    Is my GPU defective?

    If you mean to press the windows key and P together, that didn't work As far as I can tell it is disabled. I did take out the GPU and put it back in, still doesn't work.
