  1. So I run a dual boot between windows and elementary os, (basically ubuntu) and it was working fine until out of nowhere, it went to the classic intramfs command line screen. So I went along and tried all the troubleshooting steps only to have it detect absolutely nothing so I couldn't fsck anything as no partitions were detected. I tried doing a reinstall (since i basically had nothing on the elementary os and i used it for pure productivity), but the installers, burned onto the usb with the correct file table (GPT) couldn't even detect the SSD in my laptop. For reference Windows boots perfectly fine and runs well so I know it's not a SSD problem. Grub runs fine as well. The only way I can get elementary to boot normally is by switching boot from uefi to legacy where everything suddenly decides to work and elementary boots like it always has. I would be perfectly fine running legacy boot if it wasn't so involved during the boot process. Is there a fix at all for this problem? I have tried running linux distros on my computers so many times yet their reliability always comes into question as within a few days all of my installs shoot out errors or fail.

    Windows boot problems

    So, I force shut down my laptop and when I tried turning it on, the laptop entered an infinite post loop where the computer would get past the post as normal and as the windows loading icon came up the computer would freeze and restart. I tried many things such as using media creator and attempting a recovery from there. I also attempted loading a portable linux distro and trying to mount the system drive and saving my files to no success. I'm currently in the process of manually transferring my files from the SSD to my main desktop HDD as there's a m.2 slot on my desktop motherboard. So the question is, is there anything I can do since I have access to the drive which may solve the booting issue? Any file I should delete or modify within the boot drive? Also if there's no other option and I do a complete reinstall, how would I access the windows key for the device to activate since its a laptop and keys are no longer printed on the device. Many thanks in advance

    Powers on-ish with no display

    That seems like quite an unusual issue. Maybe try reseating the components such as the RAM, power cables or maybe even the CPU. It could be that if it was moved around during storage that the internals may have been slightly shifted. Or maybe as @Spotty said it may be affected by the cleaning or even the lack thereof.

    4K/30p Capable DSLR with external mic plugin?

    So like @AqHu mentioned, the Panasonic range of mirrorless cameras are something you should seriously consider since those cameras offer robust video quality for a reasonable price. For now I would stay away from Canon cameras, especially the m50 in terms of video performance. That is because as much as the 4k function is advertised, the actual performance of it's supporting features are quite limited. One such example is the crop meaning that you would have to get quite a wide lens or have the camera placed a significant distance away from you to get a reasonable frame. Not to mention the fact that DPAF (Canon's famous in sensor focusing system) is disabled for the 4k shooting resolution. (No bias as I am a canon semi-pro shooter) A camera to consider would be the GH4 which I believe is on offer currently at BH photo https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1028453-REG/panasonic_dmc_gh4kbody_lumix_dmc_gh4_mirrorless_micro.html Considering your former choice was a Nikon B700 I'm assuming that the focus is on video and less so photography. Though if you wish to be able to do more serious photography sony's range of APSC mirrorless cameras from the a6300 to the a6500 are reasonably priced and offer 4k as well as plenty of photography features. And yes all the cameras mentioned above all have external mic line inputs and some have clean HDMI output for external recorders down the line. Though if you are looking to grind and narrow fully into videos and have a slightly larger budget, the BMPCC 4k is worth considering.

    Gt 640 giving me a black screen

    Okay sounds like a very dead GPU in that case.

    Please Help. Upgraded PC not working

    That sounds an awful lot like an issue with the PSU. By shut down do you mean it just switches off or does the windows shut down screen display?

    Gt 640 giving me a black screen

    Is the monitor cable plugged into the GPU display outputs? Is the GPU properly seated in the socket? Has the system booted normally prior to the installation of the GPU, such as with the previous GPU? (FX CPU's don't have onboard graphics) There is the possibility that some of the components may be dead. If you have another GPU, plug that in and then plug the monitor cable into it to see if it boots. If not then it would most likely be an issue with other components.

    Opinions needed PC Build

    It looks fairly good, all appears to be compatible and seemingly balanced.

    How to chose webcams for my pc

    It truly depends on your budget and use. Where if it were just for video calls, any cheap logitech or reliable offbrand webcam will do, but if you are looking to stream or record, then that's a separate area, with a consequential higher cost. An example for streaming would be the logitech C922 which comes in at around 130AUD

    Rate the Photo Above you

    I like that photo! Love the minimalism and balance with the subject well isolated. Looks pretty clean. Here's a few of my recent ones, feel more than welcome to critique as I am a semi-pro looking to improve.

    Anamorphic Lenses

    There are no commonly available or viable options to achieve a true anamorphic look via a screw on filter in front of mainstream consumer lenses. There are however anamorphic look filters which aim to imitate the flaring and bokeh of anamorphic video though none deliver true stretched image anamorphic.

    Installing Asus F200M Wifi Card in my desktop

    Some of those could work but the main concern is if the laptop wireless card is locked to HP brand laptops, which may be an issue. So theres uncertainty on whether it would work or not. However for basically the same price as the adapter you were looking at, I found a n300 wireless card guaranteed to work. https://www.amazon.de/TP-Link-TL-WN881ND-Netzwerk-Adapter-geeignet/dp/B006BSPTAQ/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1547948080&sr=8-7&keywords=pcie+wifi+card

    installment of games

    I personally install games on my SSHD since SSD space is rather premium and i dont game often enough to warrant super high speed storage. Though if your computer is only used primarily for gaming and your installed SSD has the space to spare, then install your favourite games to it. If not then hard drives aren't too slow and should work just fine for casual/irregular gaming.

    High wattage amp with low wattage speakers

    I have a pair of old but fairly good sounding speakers but the amp for them broke ages ago. I was searching and found a 15watt amp for a good price, but the speakers I have are only rated for a maximum of 3watts. Would using the high wattage amp on lower wattage speakers cause any damage?
