  1. No idea - everywhere in the manual is called just "COM PORT DIAGNOSTICS" These are the recommended settings in the manual. Bаud rate – 115,200 bps; Data bits – 8; Parity – None; Stop bits – 1; To the actual COM port only go 3 wires - 1 ground, 1 communication RX and 1 communication TX according to the wire diagram. The annoying thing to me personally is that it works right away with my dad's Dell Latitude D620 but that psychical COM port on it - only when I try to get it to work with an adapter to USB everything goes south.
  2. I'm trying to use LPG Injection Controller v4.60 with a cheap USB to COM cable that I got as a gift because it wasnt working - easy enough the ground wire was broken off so quick solder and my laptop (W10 64 bit) found and recognized it. Good but when I try to connect to the actual LPG computer, it does not read the data of it. Inspecting the adapter board, I tried reversing the 2 USB data channels - green and white wires, but that ended in Code 43 and unrecognizable USB..... Tried changing the whole cable and soldering new cable - same results. What am I missing here? COM properties are configured as the software manual says..
  3. So from about a week, I noticed that whenever I leave my PC running one old game and a macro for it, at some point it shuts off. No reboot, just shut off. My first though was "hm maybe that cheap DC-DC board I made earlier as a fan controller is tripping the PSU," (it's connected to a molex and has 2 fans on it - doesn't draw that much) - disconnected that, no effect. Second "maybe the stupid windows updates are shutting it off" - installed everything it wanted by hand and it stayed on for a few days, but again tonight it shut off. Another interesting fact is that it never shut off in front of me - always when the monitor/tv is off and it seems it's not load dependent - I leave game made for Pentium 3 on when it dies yet I'm playing others way more modern ones for hours cause no trouble. So today, after booting it up, I started watching CPU VCORE in the BIOS and HW Monitor. In the BIOS, its jumping from 1.424 to 1.440 V at random intervals. Now in HW Monitor I was looking more for the 12V rail from the PSU and that is also jumping from 12.038 to 12.091 V at random. Another PSU hopefully will be available tomorrow but what I'm asking is Can these tiny spikes cause my PC to be shutting off itself? PSU: Corsair CX600 (it's 4-5 years old at this point with a lot of use) MB: Asrock x370 Killer SLI CPU: Ryzen 1 1500x
  4. Motherboard Had an issue with 1 crappy one, after overclocking the CPU power phases became unstable - would BSOD at random no matter what I was doing.
  5. Basic relay Signal comes from any header of the PC you can control when to turn on/off - say a fan header maybe? This closes you RGB circuit with external power and your done...
  6. https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/693773-g5-komars-mode/ May not be as powefull, but I'm way ahead of LTT on this one :P
  7. I have a custom modded Apple G5 case. My PSU literally is hold with zipties, from rails that are glued to the aluminum case. I've dropped it, kicked it on its side, drove it 250 kms on some of the roughest roads imaginable and it's still okay. (just a bit bend from that kick ups).
  8. Most likely nothing wrong specifically with your internet but rather with your local servers. I suppose you connect with that NordVPN to a server far away from you? My logic comes from those times to connect - with VPN it connects slower but has higher speeds because the server it connects to is faster or maybe not so clogged up. Without the VPN you connect much faster but the speed is slower which makes no logic. Try running speedtest to the server that you use when you have the VPN connected.
  9. So my car (VW golf mk3) uses for the front channel two loudspeakers mounted in the dash and 2 normal ones in the doors. The way it works, the signal starts from the radio, go into the loudspeakers and from there go to the door speakers. Back when I upgraded my speakers to a set of Boston S65 ones, I removed and bridged the wires for the loudspeakers without cutting off any connectors. That, due to the very low placement of the speakers (next to my leg), made the effect that you could hear only 1 of them - I can hear just the right one and the navigator just the left one. Okay fair enough - the loudspeakers went back in (yay for not cutting any connectors) but again - I couldn't hear the left one (my side). Okay easy fix - just a 20+ year old part gave up. - Tried another original one that I know it works - nothing - Got a set of some newer ones and soldered one to similar connector - nothing again. Just tried the 9V battery test on those newer ones and they both worked so is there anything I'm doing something wrong here or just going crazy?
  10. @jakkuh_t 40 GBP and 20 more for shipping for that 7950 GX2? Would you feel bad for spending your boss money if I tell you I got mine for whats around 20 GBP shipped?
  11. Your "old and barely booting" system most likely will be like new with a fresh install of OS and can benefit someone that doesn't have even that. If you are willing to put the effort try to find someone that deserves it.
  12. This is perfectly normal working temperature. No need to worry about it, just be happy with your new machine...
  13. Ehm idk about the number 2 problem, but I can almost guarantee you, that it's the motherboard failing and not the CPU - the VRMs to be exact.
  14. Ain't worth my time, since it will take you roughly 1-2 years to gather enough money and by that time there are gonna be much better deals....
  15. That HP board is just as fine for gaming, as the z77. You will be throwing money out.
