    Help PLZ

    I would upgrade it just to be sure. I've had a similar thing with the pc I've built for my sister, thing worked 99% of the time but as soon as there was some sort of power spike the PSU would turn off and reboot the pc. It's a good idea IMO to have some wattage left

    SSD not detected in laptop

    Hello, I'm helping a friend of mine with his laptop (acer asprire E1-571), his HDD died so I wanted to give him a small surprise. Got him a Samsung 860 EVO 500gb, but the laptop just won't recognize it. Tried my own Samsung 850 PRO 256gb, the laptop does recognize this drive. So I really don't get it. What I've already tried: 1- tinkering with some bios settings 2- Do some powershell things with the drive: Diskpart Clean Create partition primary Active Format fs=ntfs quick Assigned label But it won't help at all. Anybody got some advice on how to configurate the 860 evo 500gb that it will be recognized? Kind regards!

  5. I've got an asus motherboard myself aswell, it's doing the same thing. I Have read about this 'issue' from at least 50 people with asus motherboards. Nothing to worry about

    [Help] Re-thermal pasting laptop CPU

    When I put thermal paste on a die like that I use this method: 1- Put a small dot on the die 2- Just the syringe thingy (where the stuff came out) and just spread it out until the entire die is covered with a thin layer. 3- Put the cooler on it. It is REALLY important that the entire die is covered. If not? High chance something dies cuz of too much heat. Edit: they added a spatula thing with your paste. Just put a small dot on the die and use the plastic spatula to spread it out nicely over the die. When the entire die is covered just screw the cooling back onto it and you should be good to go.

    That one is great to use, cuz it won't fry your parts if you spill something. Great choice!

    High cpu usage and low gpu usage +(pictures)

    Resolution? What application? I think a 4770k shouldn't bottleneck a 1080ti that much, I don't even think you need to upgrade an I7-4770k to run good with a 1080ti. Intel hasn't done many improvements on their chips in the last few years. I've ran a 1080ti with a 6700k and my experience is that a 4770k is pretty comparable (a bit weaker) to a 6700k. (I think you mean I7-4770k instead of I7-4470k?)

    Have you tried disabling power limits?

    IF YOU HAVE A 1080TI FE PLEASE HELP

    Last time I flashed gpu firmware with nvflash I used completely diffent commands, I think it was: cd/nvflash64 nvflash64 -6 ROM.rom y y and I was done. Edit: I think I even did: nvflash64 -4 -5 -6 ROM.rom

    [Help] Re-thermal pasting laptop CPU

    1- Monitoring temps: I would use HWInfo 64. 2- Alcohol swabs are fine. 3- I would strongly recommend that you use non-conductive non-capacitive thermal goop (like MX4), just to make sure you won't short something when some of the paste gets onto the PCB. That way you can just slap it on and don't worry about a thing. 4- You should make sure that you just do it slowly and that you don't any possible parts on the PCB. It's not that hard, but just be calm, don't be to rough on the chip and you should be fine. The part that I think is by far the most important: make sure that you use thermal paste that CAN NOT damage your system in any way, shape or form. I replace gpu/laptop thermal paste on a regular basis for friends of mine, I always use Arctic MX4. I always put more than enough of that paste onto those chips and I've never killed a chip with it (even though I know a 100% that it will spill out onto the PCB).

    SSD not detected in laptop

    I manged to install windows 10 on the 500gb SSD. They way I did it: I downloaded the oldest windows 10 version I could find. Did some tinkering with the MBR (Master Boot Record). Started a custom windows 10 installtion (waited for at least 2 hours for it to reach to screen where I could pick which drive I wanted to install it on). Installation gave an error 2 times. The third time it did install correctly and is now working a 100%. I only have to do the updates for the last 2 years with MediaCreationTool.exe (from the Microsoft website) Thanks for all your help yesterday, really appreciated your commitment helping me

    Okay I will just wipe them like they're brand new. Will report back to you!

    Update: I've done the diskpart steps on my 950 pro, now the laptop won't recognize that drive aswell. So it must be a configuration issue with the drive. Because now they both won't work.

    Even that point the installation won't reach. I think I'm going to try to swap some things: I will give him my 850 evo 500gb (yes I've got a 850 pro and a 850 evo in my system) and take the 860 evo 500gb for myself. Let's see if that will work.

    It just acts weird: 950 pro: Boot from dvd, thing is quick and reaches the point where you select the drive really quick 960 evo: Boot from dvd takes ages, thing won't even reach the point where I can select a drive. Shit is strange...

    That's going to be my next step: install in my own pc install windows on it install it in his laptop reinstall windows on it (cuz of drivers)

    No because my own 850 Pro does work. I got the bios to 'see' the drive, but I keep getting the message: no boot device detected. I think I need to partition it in a certain way.

    Samsung Magician won't see it when it is connected though a external drive circuit board. It just sees AsMedia USB 3.1 I'm now trying to create a windows to go on the drive and see if the lapto recognizes the drive.

    Ah now I see, it's not DOA. When i connect it via USB I can write and read files from/to it.

    As I said in the first post: his HDD died so I wanted to give him a small surprise. So there is no such thing as a device manager when the only working drive the laptop has is brand new.
