    This is not BS, Lego patented the system in addition to the parts.  In fact, this lawsuit is just a re-run of many that came before it.

    A batch file is just a script, post its contents with code tags and we can see what is going on.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from MATTJW in I want to add another stick of ram to my system and maybe overclock it.   
    If the RAM has different timings it IS a problem.  In which case you have to manually figure out what timings work with both modules, set those timings with one module in the system, then add the other stick.
     
    But if the memory is the same model and SKU, this is not a problem 99% of the time.

    Pretty much nailed it.  Go back to defaults and re-OC and test after adding RAM.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from TechyBen in Legal recourse for botched computer repair? (Canada)   
    At this point I wonder if they just MB swapped with a damaged board just to sell the board.
     
    This is why I never trust a shop to do any diagnostic, they have motive to just claim things are broken to make money selling something.  Unfortunately, diagnostics are just a tool to fleece the consumer to many repair shops.  I have seen this behavior in everything from GeekSquad to corporate-level IT consultants.
     
    The IT consultants thing is first hand experience.  Migrated to new hardware due to EXTREME age of the old hardware at an office, business owner wasnt interested in upgrading the workstations just yet as they were dumb terminals that could be replaced if they died, so we just migrated the server OS as is to a new box.  6 months later a contractor comes in and "upgrades" the server and workstations.  Nearly threw $2000 of server hardware into the trash because it was running Windows Server 2000 and the guy could not be asked to check the hardware specs.  Sold the business a "server" for $2000... with a 1st gen Phenom CPU in it... in 2015.  Contractor then proceeded to take the Server 2012 disk and key with him off site, without anyone's knowledge.  Played dumb when the business owner contacted him about it.  Took threats of legal action over fraud and theft before anything was returned.

    Thats not thermal paste in the socket.  Looks like a ghetto pin repair job using clay to support a broken pin.
     
    Anyway, the CPU is likely fine.  Overpasting doesnt kill CPUs.  Crap in the socket doesnt kill CPUs either.
     
    My question is, if you had the knowledge to even take the CPU out and examine it, why did you take it to a repair shop for a simple MB swap?  Thats like a 10m job.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from BTGbullseye in What do I need to do 1440p Gaming Properly?   
    IMHO, the 1660 Ti isnt worth the money if you are already sitting on something like an RX 580.  Just turn some settings like shadows or SSAO down and 1440p should perform fine on most games.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from VicioGamer47 in Graphics Card to HP SFF with 240watts?   
    RX 460 is ~10% slower than the 1024 shader RX 560, but there are RX 560s that have the same shader count as the RX 460 (896).  It is hard to tell which is which sometimes as the packaging tends to not display the shader count.
     
    Anyway... If you are going to their store in person and they are trying to charge the same amount for the in stock RX 460, try to haggle them down by at least 10%.  And remember, the same limitations apply, has to be low profile with no external power connector.

    Also...
     
    DP to VGA generally works much better than HDMI to VGA, as the standard was made with that type of conversion in mind.  HDMI to VGA is more of a hack/workaround and may present problems with resolutions available (wrong aspect ratio, unsupported resolutions, etc).

    Incorrect.
     
    I am now running an RX 560 on an old school BIOS motherboard, 1st gen socket AM3/DDR3.  The board is 100% UEFI unaware and the RX 560 does not care.  Most GPUs have both UEFI and BIOS firmwares smashed into one.  The code checks for BIOS or UEFI and loads the proper firmware at boot.

    More info on HPs website regarding what I assume is your computer.  Looks like an HP 6200 SFF from the specs at least.

    HP says no way, users installed cards with no problems.
     
    I have an RX 560 and a VERY old board that is pre UEFI, I can test to see if it works or not.  I am almost 100% sure it works.
     
    Ill post back once I get to the office where that PC is and test.

    A random RX 560 will not fit, it has to be a low profile card.  If the 560 doesnt work the 1030 would also likely not work either.  Make sure to update your BIOS from HPs website, check for any compatibility notices.

    V6 or V8 only applies to the HP board.
     
    Parts in the "build your own PC" domain dont generally have the vendor locks that HP use, so it should be fine with an aftermarket board.
