  1. Wanted to chill and watch a nice, classic film but of course... when I put the disc in via my USB-Optical-Drive, load it via VLC Media Player as I would with any other normal film/DVD as normal, it decides to crash at the 13/14-minute mark. Awesome. x_x


    Any other DVD loads absolutely fine and yes via VLC Media Player + the same USB-Optical-Drive of course. Disc is clean.

    I'm beginning to not like using discs that much anymore xD lol - No idea what's making it crash though :(

      Well, it's time to trouble shoot. What types of DVDs do you usually insert? What  were their runtime lengths? What format were the DVDs you used prior to this experience (the ones that worked)?

  2. Windows acts very strangely when there is a 4k-monitor and 2x 1080p-monitors combined and I don't know why xD I really don't know why.

      I have 1440p and 1080p but I am using custom 1440p res for the 1080p display to get the extra screen real estate. Some apps look blurry (Steam, SpeedFan, etc...) but otherwise, it is a lot better.

    3. YedZed


      Nice! I'm using this monitor instead of a 1440-900 because it adjusts roughly to the same physical size at my 1440p, so I can line up the bottom.

    4. TopHatProductions115


      Could Windows be scaling the window(s) to the other screens, based upon native Resolution? (like the number of pixels gets preserved, even if the pixel density of one screen is higher than the other) Rather than physical dimensions?

  3. Heh... this is gonna be fun, sort of :ph34r: Gonna need some advice. I gotta try and make a good but very cheap PC for a friend whilst on a bit of a (..very) tight budget of around £300 xD.

      Oh, in that case, an APU would be more than ideal. Pair it with 16GB (not possible is it?) of RAM and an SSD (again, unless your friend only needs <256GB, not happening), you'd be set to go ;).

    3. YedZed


      Well you could always do a fresh install, but I get the fresh PC paradigm.

    4. TopHatProductions115


      Got some used/unwanted parts on hand? Might help. Also, may have to get the Windows license from a 3rd party source to stay in that budget...


  4. Anybody know if Windows 10 ever creates some sort of error-log (.......that I can easily understand) at all when your PC crashes by itself?


    I was in the middle of driving on ETS-2 as normal whilst relaxing/watching a DVD via VLC-Media-Player on my right monitor with Google-Chrome on my left monitor and all the sudden, everything freezes, stays like it for about 5 or so seconds, then it still stays like that but a second or so later, my left and right monitors go black and I stay still in my chair for about 20-30 seconds to see if anything would happen and then my PC decided to restart itself. So currently, I have no idea what caused it and am still a bit concerned :/

    1. TopHatProductions115


      Windows Event Viewer - look for the items marked either 'Warning' or 'Critical'. Check especially for ones that mention a reboot/ACPI shudtown.

  5. Alright, looks like I managed to fix it finally ! There was a tiny issue with the GPU-Drivers but it's done now.
  6. I have a Ryzen CPU which I think don't have integrated-graphics
  7. Ok, what I might do tomorrow then because it's getting a bit late here lol is this (below): Is this correct?: Take out the GTX 1080 Put the GTX 650 Ti back in Hope that it gets to the desktop Try to download and run DDU to remove the GPU-Drivers and I'll make sure to disable the Latest Driver Download option Download and Install the latest GeForce Drivers for the GTX 1080 from geforce . co.uk Turn off the PC and put in the GTX 1080 Hope that it gets to the Desktop?
  8. When I press the power-button, it starts up fine as explained -^ but then it goes black. @Noobie22 @knightslugger I'm thinking it could be the drivers that I forgot to uninstall, could that be a possible cause? Do I boot into Safe-Mode via the BIOS or ..? I can't remember how to do it lol, haven't done so in ages.
  9. Hi all, I'm currently installing my new GPU which is a EVGA GTX 1080 Superclocked 2 with ICX Cooling and am removing my GTX 650 Ti and so far, I've uninstalled it and have installed the GTX 1080 and thankfully, I got to my desktop and tested a couple of things like going to YouTube . com and Google etc..,; and I went to open my Task Manager to see if the GPU shows up or not, it didn't, so I went to open NVIDIA Control Panel and for some reason my screen went black and I don't know why. One thing I did realize whilst uninstalling my GTX 650 Ti and swapping the cables etc.. was that I forgot to uninstall the GPU-Drivers before uninstalling the GTX 650 Ti, was I meant to do so? At the moment, when I start up the PC, it starts up fine and gets to the Aorus screen with the Aorus logo and a loading icon but then it just goes black and I don't know why. If anyone could help me I would seriously appreciate it ASAP =) Thanks -Xiauj
  10. I wish I could be optimistic as u

  11. Good Evening to all on this awesome Saturday!

    Currently using my PC and am browsing LTT-Forums on 4K-Resolution for the first proper time O_O so um.... Hey! :D I have still got a couple of issues to sort out tomorrow but for tonight at least, I've got my PC up and running which is pretty damn awesome. As for my new monitor setup for now I am using my 4K-Monitor (TN-Panel) with 2 of my LG-Monitors (IPS-Panel).


    Also... 30Hz is really weird to use haha; I am so used to 60Hz a lot of the time on 3x LG-1080p-Resolution-Monitors but yeah, that's why I say that, lol xD

    Task for tomorrow is to get the monitors on my desk properly re-arranged!

    1. TopHatProductions115


      Can't wait to see that up and running (properly)!

    2. silentprototipe


      Sweet, Meanwhile im stuck on a 22 inch 1080p panel. Atleast its IPS 

  12. Yaaay!

    I might hopefully be getting a new GPU soon which is gonna be awesome! :D

      @AluminiumTech Err.. no? Not recently at least anyways o.O lol

      Although I did say I was thinking about one of those back (A GTX 1080 or similar) in November of 2017 :P (Link).

    3. Xiauj


      Though I am gonna hopefully be getting one soon :D

    4. TopHatProductions115


      I'm rooting for ya! Get the best one you can!

  13. Alright, I know this might sound like a little weird at first, but..... does anyone have a good amount of knowledge about Single Board Computers? You know, ones that are similar to Raspberry Pi etc..


    If so.., mind if I ask a question or 2 or 3 in a private message? ^_^ Trying to find out something and could do with some advice lol :P

      I'm asking for the following, pertaining to your SBC:


       - What company/entity made your SBC

       - What model is the SBC in question (or what year)

       - What are its specs (what came with it out of the box)?

       - What modifications have you made to it?


       - What do you intend to do with the SBC (or what you need help with)?

    3. Xiauj


      @TopHatProductions115 Errr... I think you might have misunderstood the original post.

      I never said that I own an SBC (Single Board Computer) or produce them, might want to re-read the original post.



      I was thinking of getting one for a very specific purpose.. ;)

    4. TopHatProductions115


      My bad :(


      I wrongly assumed that you already had it in your possession...


      I guess the only question would actually, be about what you plan to do with it. But, you probably already have a lead... 

  14. Net Neutrality is happening now guys!!


  15. In other news.... it's nearly Christmas <3

    Cannot wait to get a new GPU which I've been meaning to do for the last year or maybe two or three xD


    I'll still keep my current 650 Ti but, yeah, I truly cannot wait! :D

      Tis the season. What did you have in mind? 


      This will be the first time in the last 4 years that I have not upgraded my GPU on an annual basis. ;) 

    3. Xiauj


      @MEC-777 Still thinking about a GTX 1080 (Non-Ti) hopefully ^_^ Should hopefully be a nice upgrade lol
