  1. I used the windows troubleshooter and it didn't work either if that's what you mean.
  2. I wish there was medicine for Windows!
  3. Hey everyone, I've been having this issue for a while now where my computer won't fall asleep automatically. I have my settings set for it to sleep, but it just doesn't. The screen will turn off but the computer will stay on. It's starting to become an issue since I am wasting a lot of power just to have my computer running for no reason. I have looked all over the internet to find a solution, so here is a list of all the things I have done. Made sure the computer is set to sleep Restored Power Plan Defaults Disabled Hybrid Sleep Disabled Wake Timers Allow the computer the sleep when sharing media Disabled Update Orchestator from waking my computer from sleep Checked the Power Requests in Command Prompt Override Power Requests in Command Prompt Checked Last Wake in command prompt (It was nothing since my computer never feel asleep) Made sure no Devices (USB, Network Adapter etc) were causing it to stay awake I don't really know where to go at this point since I've seem to have done everything the internet says to do. I'm starting to think it is a hardware issue, but my most recent part was a power supply upgrade a few weeks before this started happening. It also might be one of the drivers, though I did the Power Request Override and it still didn't work If anyone has any idea, I am open to suggestions. Thanks again for your help!
  4. So I usually use a power-line adapter connected to my computer for my internet. My router is very far away and I seem to get more reliable connection, for the expense of speed which I am perfectly fine doing. Recently however, I got a new router and as a test I wanted to see how much speed I was losing by using my power-line solution. I have 2 wireless adapters, one that I bought before I had my power-line adapter from TP-Link, and one that I got for free as part of a mother board deal from MSI (but it's really just a re-branded Intel Chip). The links are there if you want a reference. The MSI adapter was a bluetooth and wifi chip, so I have been using it for bluetooth for the past few months and never did any test for the wifi side. So with it already installed in my computer, I tried to connect to the wifi only to find out it wasn't working. Windows wasn't detecting it as a wifi device, only bluetooth. I thought to myself, "It's just a driver issue." So I went to go reinstall my drivers and try again, when I did the same thing happened. I then thought maybe something happened with the Windows install since I have never used wifi on this system yet (The TP-Link wireless adapter was for another system if you were wondering). I installed the TP-Link adapter to check if my wifi was working at all, and it was and worked just fine. I then tried to get the other adapter to work, I switched the PCI slot it was in, made sure nothing was broken and tried again with the same result. I then gave up, didn't really think it was that big a deal and moved on. I plugged the MSI Adapter in for bluetooth and the TP-Link to test out the wifi. When I booted up the system, both adapters showed up and worked. I could connect to wifi on both adapters. I really don't know why this is happening, I just thought it was odd. I don't really get why I would need to have both adapter plugged in to get one to work. My only thought is that when Windows detects the fact that there is a wifi card, it realizes that the MSI one is there. I also haven't had a chance to try the adapter out on different pc to see if I get the same results, but I hope to do that at some point. If you have any theories on why this is happening, comment away. I want to see if there is a reasonable explanation and it just me being dumb Thanks EDIT: Here are my system specs if you think it has something to do with it. MSI X370 Gaming Pro Motherboard AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (Overclocked to 3.8GHz) 8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM 2933MHz AMD RX460 2GB A case, power supply, HHD, M.2 SSD, and stuff I don't really want to look up specifics but they really shouldn't matter to much.
  5. So I just bought a 250gb Samsung 960 Evo M.2 SSD (that's a mouthful). I plugged in my windows flash drive to reinstall windows on it, and I did. So with windows on my SSD I thought I was good to go, but the SSD doesn't show up in the motherboard BIOS in the boot menu options. I have a MSI X370 Gaming Pro Motherboard. What is weird is that in Windows it shows up just fine in file explorer and disk management and I can use it no problem but it doesn't show up in the BIOS. I have updated to no success, I have also made sure SATA Port 5&6 were not in use (since I looked at someone with the same problem that fixed it that way) and that also didn't work. I have no idea what is going on, and I can't boot into windows on my SSD. Any help would be great. If you need to know the specifics of my rig: MSI X370 Gaming Pro Mother AMD Ryzen 5 1600 8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM 2933MHz AMD RX460 2GB A case, power supply and other stuff that shouldn't really matter.
  6. Yeah thats pretty much it, thanks for your suggestions
  7. I reformatted it to no success, and it doesn't show up in Disk Manager when I plug it in to the front.
  8. So the usb drive (3.0) doesn't work on my front usb ports (3.0), but anything else I plug in does. I also checked the motherboard and everything is in properly. Also, when I plug in the drive that isn't working into any other port in the computer it works just fine.
  9. Okay, so I just re downloaded the drivers and it still doesn't work. I am going to try reformatting the drive and then see.
  10. Yeah, but the drive I plugged in that isn't working is 3.0 and I'm plugging it into a 3.0 port. I also am pretty sure I downloaded the drivers, but I may have to do that again just to check.
  11. Yeah but sometimes using usb 2 drives on usb 3 ports can be a bit spotty
  12. I thought that, but both of the drives I plugged into the front were usb 2 and one of them worked so that not it. EDIT: I just realized the one that isn't working is USB 3, but I'm plugging it into a usb 3 port so whats the deal there.
  13. So I have a USB Drive, when I plug it into the front usb ports it doesn't work. When I plug it in the back however, it does. I tried plugging in a different usb port in the front ports, and it works just fine. So what the heck is going on here? I hope that explanation makes sense, it kinda sounds like a riddle. Thanks
