  1. Need Help With a Hard Drive Replacement

    Microcenter is 20 minutes from me and the person's computer I'm working on doesn't care enough to get an SSD. I'm just getting them another 1TB WD Blue since that what the laptop had to begin with. So basically what your saying is I should be able to just plug in my new hard drive, throw in my windows install drive, and everything should be good? Need a confirmation on this. Don't want to take my friends money to get this drive and end up up a creek without a paddle.
  2. Need Help With a Hard Drive Replacement

    I don't need to recover the files off the old drive. I just need to know what I'll have to do to get the new drive to run.
  3. A friend at work brought me an HP Touchscreen laptop (Model number: 15-ba052wm) to fix. It has a bad hard drive and was giving off a Failure code 301. Either way I know I need to replace the hard drive but I need to know some things before I run over to Microcenter and grab a replacement: *This PC is running Windows 10 64-bit* 1.) What kind of recovery media will I need and how can I acquire it? -I saw somewhere that I would need an HP system recovery drive, is that something I can download to a thumbdrive like I can for Windows recovery stuff? 2.) For Windows 10 I do not have the key that came with the PC. -Not sure how to even go about this process. Basically I need to know what I need on the software side of things so that when I get this new drive I can get the computer to run. I don't need any files off the old drive either from what he tells me.
  4. What is this random file that appeared on my desktop?

    A search through my browser history and Chrome download history have confirmed the file is indeed off the recovery image I downloaded for that Surface last week. File has been disposed of. We're all good.
  5. What is this random file that appeared on my desktop?

    That's what I thought at first but when I scanned the folder came up with nothing. I'm thinking it may be leftover from when I made that recovery drive for my friend's Surface. Trying to confirm now.

    Never even heard of this software.
  7. I need someone more tech savvy than me to see if they have any idea what this folder is. I had this 'boot' folder appear on my desktop and I didn't put it there. Here's what's in it: I checked C: Windows and it has a boot folder in there as well with different stuff which matches my brother's PC and my Surface Pro, but I have no idea where this came from. Anybody got anything? I did make a recovery drive a couple weeks ago for my friends PC, could it be remnants of that I forgot to clear out?
  8. Is it possible to stream music via Bluetooth?

    Still not finding the 'Connect With Audio Access' thing. When I double click my phone I get this.
  9. Is it possible to stream music via Bluetooth?

    No dice. My phone and PC are paired but when I go to play music on my phone it doesn't give me the option to play over anything other than my iPhone speakers.
  10. Is it possible to stream music via Bluetooth?

    How does that work?
  11. Is it possible to stream music via Bluetooth?

    So I have an iPhone and a Windows 10 PC. Is it possible to play music from my phone on my PC through a Bluetooth connection? If it is, how do you do it? I've been messing with this for like an hour and had no success with it. Thanks
  12. Why are GPUs so expensive right now??

    Wow! Looks like I built my rig just in time (about 6 weeks ago). Managed to get my 1080 for $525.
  13. Is it worth overclocking a Strix GTX1080

    Alright, so I got Afterburner and after playing with it for a few hours this is what I came up with... I was able to get the 1080 stable at 2113MHz with the memory at 5705MHz. I also went back and bumped my 7700k up to 5GHz. My Afterburner settings: Unigine Heaven Before and After: Firestrike Before and After: I also ran TimeSpy and got just under a 7000 after overclocking. I forgot to get a screenshot though. How'd I do?
  14. Is it worth overclocking a Strix GTX1080

    Thanks! Looks like Afterburner may be the way to go then. What should I be aware of while I'm playing with it so I don't ruin my card? Moving the power and temp limit up like that post says should be fine right?
  15. Is it worth overclocking a Strix GTX1080

    May have to hit up Youtube then. Is there a method to use to safely find the card's limits? Extra horsepower would be nice but I'm not willing to sacrifice stability or reliability. This thing is too expensive to go and be breaking it or something.
