  1. I need some help. I'm trying to help out a friend who bought an AMD RX570 they had it for awhile and worked fine but out of the blue when they go to launch a game the whole pc freezes and has to hardshut down it. the computer works fine when we throw my gpu in it so it only happens with this one. does anyone have any ideas for how to fix it? if its a physical problem where on the card where could it possibly broken?
  2. Hi everyone. I have an old S7 edge and an original droid maxx both of which the screens are destroyed and I was originally planning on trying to repair them but as time has gone on I realized I just don't have the time for a project like that so I just want to sell them. problem is I can't wipe the phone due to the screens being broken and even if they weren't I dont remember the passwords. does anyone know any free software out there that would let me wipe the phones (or any button combos that would wipe them) it doesn't matter if it saves android or not the phones will be sold as scrap
  3. Yeah I knew the power supply should be enough but I wasnt having any of these issue until after I installed it. I just tried to play fallout new vegas for the first time since the switch and I can't play it on ultra anymore without it crashing. before I switched my psu I could. I realize that game is already a buggy mess but this is one is happening consistently. I also was trying to play the old force unleashed games and they won't run any higher than 2 frames a second
  4. So recently I had to replace my psu because the fan in it had died. I happend to have another one I used in a build several years ago that was a 500w instead of my old (now broken) 600w that I used to replace it. Everything was working perfectly fine for a couple of days, no issues what so ever, then randomly my monitor would lose connection to my pc for a second or 2 then come back. I first thought that it just might be a driver issue since I hadn't updated to the newest nvidia drivers so I did then it seemed fine for a day or 2. It started happening again today and I tried seeing if it was just a bad port so I unplugged my display port cable and put it in the other 2 display ports on my gpu and I wouldn't get any signal at all out of those 2 ports so I put it back in the first one and the screen came back but was still doing the same thing. I tried using my index to see if it was possibly a bad cable but my index wouldn't recieve anything either. None of this ever happened until I switched power supplies. What could this possibly be and would it just be smarter and cheaper to repair it or buy a new gpu? pc spec: MSI B150 MOBO i5 7500 hyper 212 evo 16 gb (8gb x2) corsair vengance kingston 120gb ssd segate 1tb 2.5in hdd western digital 1tb 3.5in hdd gtx 1060 (+3 fans that came with different computer cases)
  5. I'll keep that in mind. I really don't have a budget besides as cheap as reasonably possible. I don't know server parts very well and so I don't know what a realistic price range is. if it's possible to get one under 500 that would be amazing but I feel like thats way to low for what I want it for
  6. So I'm constantly running out of space on my gaming pc, my parents own their own business and I'm thinking of starting my own and I don't want to keep messing around with upgrading harddrives and having to transfer all data over. I'd rather just have it all in one location. (I'm guessing I wouldn't be able to run a game through a NAS but I have a lot of other random files on my PC that are taking a lot of my space up). I've built several PC's on my own so I get the general gist of building one, I just don't know the more specialized hardware I'd want and especially the software that's involved. Any advice into what hardware I should get and what software to have would be appreciated. (note I would prefer not to buy any software cause of how new I am to this, and I'm thinking of about 5-10tb of storage
  7. I tried playing dauntless tonight and it crashed onced again but I got the actual error code this time. here it is Assertion failed: [File:Unknown] [Line: 198] Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost.

  8. I believe I bought the SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold. I can't remember off the top of my mind and I can't remember where the box is and i don't really have the room to open my pc to look at it. my exact GPU is the MSI armor RTX 2070
  9. So I have had my PC for about 2 years now and I've had little to no issues with it, but a couple months ago i upgraded to the rtx 2070 and it was only a month or 2 later where i started experiencing lots of issues with games and my display. ever since I got it my games show lots of artifacting and will only stay open for a short period of time before crashing and the crash report always says something about a fail in rendering or missing engine assets (ive uninstalled and reinstalled the games several times and even did a full system wipe to no avail) I've also wondered if its possible my psu is failing to deliver enough power to the gpu causing this but I'm not sure since I'm not sure what really happens when a component doesn't receive the needed power. I just need some ideas on what I can do. I know i didn't give many details but thats everything I know for sure or my theories
  10. So I received an Ipod touch a few years back, stopped using it and gave it to my brother and now have it back. originally I didn't remember the passcode so I went to reset it. after I reset it I got to the activate screen and I can't for the life of me remember any of my login stuff since i almost never use any apple product. Could anyone help me or tell me how much I'll probably have to pay the apple store to get it removed?
  11. Thanks for the link I'll definitely keep it in mind as I continue my research around since I believe I can finder cheaper options
  12. So recently a friend asked my help to build a pc and they said their only requirements are that they want to be able to play the game at a minimum of 30 fps with wifi and as the title says under 500 USD. they would like to keep it as cheap as physically possible but they will not go with a used CPU or a used GPU. Ideas of parts to use and or links to places to buy would be amazing (they couldn't care if its Intel AMD or Nvidia) I have some ideas but they could definitely be worked on to get the price lower
  13. I've been hearing that you can still get a full copy of windows 10 and I'm wondering how you do it. I've been running on the demo version of it and I don't want to pay for the insane prices of a key or pay for a sketchy one for a fraction of the price. could I get any help?
  14. Thanks for the responses. I live in MN so winters are usually pretty dry but cold (don't know if that has any effect) while summers are usually pretty humid. My home is an average size home, maybe a bit more on the bigger side but still in the price range of middle class, and there's a lot of walls it has to pass through. most of the walls are wood and I believe drywall. I ran my pc on Ethernet for a long time but I got a new dog about a year ago that chews on cables and chew thru all of mine, and since its not my house (it's my parents) I can't run the wire thru the walls or floors. I do know a good amount of computers and I thought about buying a PCIe one, but every time I go to look for one they always tend to have pretty bad reviews as I have to be on a budget right now and can't afford the good ones. I was asked to find a new one. I live in a pretty populated suburb not far out of the city so there is lots of interference I'm sure.
