  1. Sorry for being unclear. I went into the bios to see if there was an option that was restricting the laptop to using integrated graphics and there was not.
  2. I'm having this issue with my laptop. Its a Lenovo Thinkpad E480, within it there is a discrete Radeon RX550 that I cannot use at all, every program (be they a game or otherwise) uses the integrated graphics on the I7-8550U. Here is a list of troubleshooting steps that I have taken: - Reinstalled Radeon graphics drivers - Set custom profiles for programs in the Radeon control panel - Switched laptop to high-performance mode - Disabled Intel graphics from device manager - Went into the bios to see if there was some sort of graphics option but there was not - Scoured the the Intel control panel for a solution only to find nothing If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it and thank you in advance.
  3. This may be a dumb question but I just got a 1080 ti for my friend extremely cheap ($200) but it has a blower-style cooler. I have a broken Gigabyte Windforce OC 1070 ti that has a functioning three fan cooler but the actually card is dead. Could I move that cooler over to the 1080 ti? Sorry if this is a stupid question for one reason or another I just cant find a straight answer online. Thanks in advance!
  4. Alright, so, 3/4 times I have turned on my PC for the past few weeks the internet completely shuts off. The router (which sits on top of my PC in my office) the connection status lights either turn off or go orange. I obviously have no internet when this happens and cannot access the router control panel, its as if I just reset it. I have 3 devices connected to it via ethernet (my PC, SO's PC, and a Phillips Hue Bridge) and several others on wifi at any given time. I have a gigabit plan through Verizon and I use a Netgear R6700v3 Nighthawk. I would appreciate any help and I've tried a few things so far: - Restarted the router multiple times - Got rid of high bandwidth use start up programs - Updating the router firmware - Making sure that my router's auto-update feature is off Thank you in advance!
  5. I did install drivers initially, but then I ran into the issue that I had. However, reinstalling the drivers DID seem to fix it. So thank you!
  6. I just got a new mic and an audiobox USB audio interface. I have my microphone plugged in via XLR to the front mic-in, the interface is plugged in via USB to a USB 2.0 port (I have tried both 3.0 and 2.0 and still have this issue.) and my headphones are plugged in via 1/4 inch jack. Once i plugged it in it seemed fine, it showed up in my sound options and I set it as the default recording and playback device. It seemed to play back audio correctly, I could hear myself through the mic and a youtube video played fine until when I tried to record something as a test there is a deafening crackling noise. It actually distorts the audio to be this white noise. I haven't messed with drivers or anything because I wanted to come here for possible answers first. Thank you in advance for any help.
  7. I have this Gigabyte z270 board that has the ssd first in its boot order but it will not boot because its listed in the boot override list. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to remove it from this list. From my understanding boot override is temporary and meant to go away after first boot.
  8. Yeah, it was stupid of me. Oh well, thanks for all the help, I appreciate the time and effort.
  9. Well, I did buy this motherboard from a chinese retailer on ebay. They had good legit-looking reviews and some saying that specifically 3770s worked. But that's what I get, its looking more and more like a mobo problem.
  10. Alright, that almost worked. The screen did display with a memory changed message but then the system shut off, powered back on tge screen flashed a few times and looked like it had a signal but the system shut off again and now its back to nothing.
  11. Fans and USB headers too? Also, when I say cleared the CMOS I took out the CMOS battery for a few minutes.
  12. I'm putting together this PC for my girlfriend and it is, as the title says, powering on, not displaying/booting, and every fan ramping to 100 and then to normal over and over. I've already tried: - Re-seating the RAM - Using different RAM - Clearing the CMOS - Using on-board and graphics card outputs If you have any insight please let me know and I'll buy you a drink if we ever meet.

  13. WORKING. I did both the firewall config and the restart and one of them did it so it seems that we're all good. Thanks a million.
  14. Appreciate the note, I'm just paranoid. Haha.
