  1. Best of luck. If it doesn't work out ask the forum again.
  2. It's referred to as a console cable and I've used them to configure CISCO Switches/Routers but netgear may not use the same interface and this may yield different results.
  3. It also goes by RS232. I have seen adapters where it will take that from a computer and convert it to a RJ-45 connector which would plug into a special port on a switch/router to manage it. If you have a serial cable around somewhere you may be able to plug it into the switch and a computer with a RS232 port. However client software will be required to connect to it. I've used Hyperterminal which brings up a command-line interface to configure the switch/router but your results may vary.
  4. You would plug it all the way in again. It's referred to as reseating a connector. If that doesn't solve the problem then I guess the PSU has gone faulty.
  5. It's worth trying. Possible in the process of fully inserting the connector actually worsened the connection. Unplugging it and plugging it back in is one of the first troubleshooting steps when something like this stops working.
  6. Did you remove the 24-pin and try plugging it in again?
  7. If you've had prior issues with the PSU then it may be to blame. But part of what you said is a misconception. A motherboard can be damaged but still power on. It won't boot to windows or even POST but it'll sit in a powered on state and do nothing. It all depends on what small trace has broken or what chip malfunctioned on the board.
  8. EVGA makes good power supplies so it's probably fine. The only thing not verified then is the motherboard itself. Were you in any way rough when inserting the 24-pin all the way in? I wonder if a solder connection failed.
  9. I find that if I'm looking at a display head on vs at an angle the color doesn't appear the same between the two. It's possible they look different based on the angle you're looking at them. Also I know ACER has settings where you go menu > options > colour temp (cool | user | warm). Personally I use cool on my displays. As for the height are your monitors set on an angle? The crack between the monitors is uneven. Either the monitor is tilted or the desk is bowed upwards causing the two displays to not be even with each other. This may cause the illusion that they're different heights. Alternatively get a tape measure or a piece of string and physically measure it. That'll tell you if it's really a different height.
  10. Well I'm a modest kind of person I don't try to ask a whole lot for old gear especially if someone can buy something better and new for a similar price. I'd probably try to sell it for...oh say, $40...if I was the person buying it I'd feel ripped off spending much more than that. A little bit of research says I can buy a R7 250 2GB GDDR5 for $55. Brand new, performance is more or less equal to the 7750 (people may argue this). How much did you spend on it?
  11. I paid $95 for a MSI7770 a long time ago. For a 7750, used...I don't really want to throw a number at you but I'd say don't expect much.
  12. If you've verified the GPU is fine and you've reset CMOS I'd normally blame the CPU and say it's dead but the system was working a short while ago just that it was randomly shutting down. To note the CPU doesn't necessarily have to be working for the system to power on. When I say power on I don't mean working but it may turn everything on just it won't do anything beyond turning on (black screen, no input). I'd swamp out the PSU for another. If that doesn't work then the motherboard might have been damaged in some way. Unlikely from a not fully seated 24-pin connector but perhaps inconsistent power. What PSU is it? Manufacturer? If it's dodgy I'd replace it regardless.
  13. What kind of speed test? Local or over the internet? Most low end Wi-Fi routers and Wi-Fi receivers will do at least 54Mbps. If your ISP download/upload speed are no higher than 6.75MBps then you'll see no bandwidth difference between copper cable and Wi-Fi or if your Router/receiver & ISP are better than that you'll still see no difference so long as the ISP connection is slower than the local Wi-Fi. It's all about what's the bottleneck.
  14. To setup SFTP communication a password is required. It's the lowest form of remote access security you can begin with. There are other options to increase the security from there but a password is a basic necessity.
  15. I was gonna say, on one of my GPU's I taped off half the pins (x16 to x8) because I ran out of usable PCI_e lanes. I have the GPU under high load all the time but I've had no malfunctions as if it were being suffocated for power in anyway so I think at x8 it's still pulling all the power it desires.
