  2. I'll be using a Sapphire Vega 64 Nitro+ with it. I'd be fine with the TX550M, but the TX650M is only £5 more so I decided to get it instead. I know I'll never use that extra 100W, but it's nice to have. Thanks for your help everyone, I appreciate it
  3. Hi, I've made 3 PCPP part lists, but I just can't decide which one of them to buy. Here are the part lists: 1. Ryzen 5 3600, B450 motherboard, 16GB RAM and a Corsair TX650M PSU (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/D7Gq6s) 2. Ryzen 5 2600, B450 motherboard, 16GB RAM and a Corsair TX650M PSU (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/Xh2jZf) 3. Ryzen 5 1600, B450 motherboard, 16GB RAM and a Corsair TX650M PSU (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/qsXgb8) Which of those do you think I should pick? I have a budget of £400 for the CPU, motherboard, RAM and PSU (or £500 if I wait until next month). I could save some money by buying the PSU later, but I'd only be willing to do so if I think it's worth it.

    Mouse problems

    I think the left click button is broken. After leaving both the PC and mouse off overnight, everything except for left click seems to work. First I'll try my previous mouse, if that works then I'll return my current mouse.

    Mouse problems

    I checked my mouse settings but I can't see any issues. It looks normal to me.

    Mouse problems

    Hi, I have a Logitech MX Master that I bought very recently (December 2019). It's brand new and it's in very good condition (or so I thought). I had issues with my previous mouse (Corsair Scimitar PRO RGB) but they were rare and nowhere near as bad as what I'm dealing with right now. The issues were: 1. The mouse not being able to click on things. 2. Nothing happening when hovering the cursor over icons on the desktop or apps in the taskbar. I found a solution to this. If I press ctrl+alt+del and then press esc the issue would be fixed until I restart my computer (these issues would always happen whenever I restarted my PC). I've had the same problem with my current mouse ever since I got it and so far it hasn't been much of a problem because of the aforementioned solution. But today around 2 or 3 hours ago I started having worse issues with my mouse. It isn't recognising any clicks on the left click button unless I have the buttons reversed (right click becomes left click and vice versa). For some reason it only recognises left clicks when the buttons are reversed and I'm in Notepad or Discord. If I left click (without buttons reversed), nothing happens and the computer lags, no matter what I'm doing. I could be on the desktop with nothing open and it would still lag. Right click doesn't work when the buttons are reversed, and when they're not it's hit or miss. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it messes up the mouse and I have to ctrl+alt+del again. Now I'm also experiencing the same problems I had with my previous mouse (the clicking problems and the hover problem). They usually happen at the same time but I've also seen them happen seperately at different times. Ctrl+alt+del fixes it (temporarily) so it's not a huge issue to me but it's still annoying. Also, every now and then the scroll wheel will stop working. Not sure if the ctrl+alt+del thing fixes it because I haven't tried that yet but I'll update this when I have tried it. I'm out of ideas. I tried updating the mouse software, I tried turning it on and off again and I tried restarting the computer multiple times but nothing has worked so far. I haven't tried unplugging the receiver and plugging it back in again yet but I doubt it'll work so for now I'm not going to try that. I'm thinking it's either a hardware problem or my windows installation is broken. Any replies or suggestions would be appreciated (thanks for reading this far btw).
  7. Why are you comparing it to piracy? This has absolutely nothing to do with piracy imo. You can download it legally from the official Microsoft website for free and use it for as long as you want. Obviously Microsoft doesn't want you to do that but you can do it if you want to. Is it the right/moral thing to do? No. But is there anything stopping you from doing it? No. If this is such a problem, why don't they close that loophole? There are a few ways it could be done. People have done this since 2015, I'm sure Microsoft know this is possible by now.
  8. I upgrade/replace my computer if I'm unhappy with the performance and I can afford to do it.
  9. It didn't. I think we realised that it isn't going to work and then the project was abandoned. To be honest I didn't think a CPU tier list was a great idea, it seemed ok on paper but I thought (and still think) it'd only cause problems. This is exactly why I stopped working on it. It's just going to cause angry fanboys (from both sides) to start a flame war in the thread, making the thread useless. It's also unnecessary to have a CPU tier list when there are plenty of people here who give good advice on CPUs. As far as I'm concerned, the CPU tier list is gone for good and it's not coming back.
  10. It's probably because they're either not interested in playing it or they haven't played it yet. Maybe they're not interested in it because they don't know it exists.
  11. I dropped my phone (Samsung Note 9) 10 minutes ago. The display is cracked and part of it is white, but the rest of the phone seems to be fine. It turns on and it works as well as it was before I dropped it. What should I do? Is this covered under warranty?
  12. I'm fine with buying anything used (even in-ear headphones) as long as it's in good condition. It doesn't matter if it's dirty or dusty, I clean all used products I buy multiple times before using them.
  13. It seems like this has been fixed. I checked 2 profiles and the posts are there.
  14. I'm using Chrome 78.0.3904.70. I'm using uBlock Origin and Ghostery.
  15. I'm not sure how to describe this issue so I've taken some screenshots of it. The recent posts aren't on their profiles but everything else is.
