  1. OS: Windows 8.1 64 bit Specs: HP Envy m6-1125dx Intel Core i5-3210M , 8gb dual channel DDR3 @ 798 MHz RAM, Crucial MX500 256gb SSD (new, actually 232gb), no audio card detected (from speccy) Recently I cloned my laptop's old hard drive to a new Crucial MX500 250gb SSD using Acronis True Image. After quite some troubles, I finally got it to work, but some of my drivers don't work (the most important one being my HD audio driver which doesn't recognize the 3.5mm jack nor the integrated speakers). I attempted to go to the HP website to download the HD Audio Driver, but after installation and restarting it nothing happened. Intel Driver and support assistant did not help either. When I click troubleshoot for audio issues, it doesn't do anything either. It only says "Hardware changes might not have been detected" and then all I can do is close the troubleshooter. When I take a look at playback devices and turn on disable devices, it states "no audio devices are installed". I have a screenshot that shows the device status from device manager. Anyone got any solutions for me? I'd like to be able to plug in some earbuds to my 3.5mm jack.
  2. I'm going to solve this and move the thread over to the troubleshoot category, since that's probably better for my issue.
  3. Won't I have to reinstall everything though? Also, if I do reinstall Windows, how will I keep the Windows license that came with my laptop?
  4. It wasnt a fresh install, I only cloned my old laptop drive to a clean SSD. I also still have my old hard drive that I took out. Do you know how I can deal with code 32 in device manager though?

  6. So I assume I should only be concerned if it was a Z370 board and I was overclocking right?
  7. I have the ROG STRIX H370-I GAMING motherboard, and I have the Cryorig C7 cooler. In the motherboard I have the Intel Core i5-8400 installed, all inside the Fractal Design Node 202 case. If examined carefully, the motherboard has a VRM heatsink on the left under the metal shroud, and I was wondering if they needed air from the CPU cooler to go there. Currently, I have my Cryorig C7 cooler mounted with the fins vertical so that the hot air may exit the Node 202 ca se. I've attached an image of a diagram of how the fins are oriented, and air doesn't get to the VRM heatsink you see on the left side of the mobo. Since I have an i5-8400 and I can't overclock, should I be concerned? Thanks in advance!
  8. How much of a difference in temps do you think there would be for: 1. just air going it like it is now 2. the caps have a thermal pad and are heat sinked to the fin stacks?
  9. Oh I should have clarified about putting thermal pads on the other side of the PCB so it would sink to the backplate. Thanks for the help though!
  10. But if I do, will it make a difference in the longevity of those components or better performance/overclocking potential?
  11. So I have an Asus GTX 1070 Ti Cerberus, and I saw that there are only thermal pads on the MOSFETs and they contact the heatsink. However, there are no thermal pads on the capacitors, the VRAM, chokes/inductors (the block things), nor the backplate. Does that matter if I am not overclocking the 1070 Ti Cerberus? And if I do overclock it, does it make a difference in longevity or allow for slightly better performance? Thanks in advance for help!
  12. Yeah I think you can do a fan swap with another 92mm fan, if that is what you're asking.
  13. What's funny is that he built the system a week ago, and its already making a ticking noise
  14. True, especially with the R5 2600 going for $160 you can OC and get some amazing bang for the buck, even if Ashiok spends some money for a decent air cooler
  15. Or you could go with what LukeSavenije said, Ryzen is really good bang for the buck as well
