    Idk if the touch screen will interfere with this, but you could try disabling the touch screen with only the keyboard. If that works, here's some steps I came up with:
    1: press windows key + r and run devmgmt.msc
    2: Use tab and your arrow keys to get to Human Interface Devices and press the right arrow key to expand that 
    3:  use the arrow keys to get to HID-compliant touch screen. and press enter
    4: Press tab until the "General" tab has a border around it, then use the left/right arrow keys to get to the "Driver" tab.
    5: press tab until "Disable" is selected, then press enter
    6: in the prompt asking you if you want to disable this device, press y or an arrow key to highlight "yes" then press enter
    Hopefully that works.

    could be an issue with the older piledriver architecture, as they weren't really great APU's even for 2012-2013 when they launched
    a couple of things that could cause issues are unstable overclocks, PSU issues (not providing enough power on the 12V rail), running out of resources (system memory, drive space, etc...)
    upgrading to a newer platform (i.e Ryzen) could get you much better results
    besides that, I don't have much experience with older AMD hardware, so I can't really say too much on troubleshooting

    Bout $250 for the $100 R3 2200G, or look for sales on the R5 1600/R5 2600 in the future like what's going on right now.

    Just don't buy anything until you can buy it all at once.

    YakRuski got a reaction from WoodenMarker in 3d printed brackets for Noctua D14   
    They responded, and it looks like they're actually gonna send it over. You weren't lying that they have good customer service. Thanks for giving me the idea!

    Sell those components and go for a Ryzen 1600 since you already have a graphics card you don't need to get a G chip

    YakRuski reacted to dalekphalm in How to get free computer stuff from businesses   
    One thing you can do is, for example at school, talk to the head IT person, and ask them if they will be tossing out any old computer equipment.
    Lots of times, schools and other businesses won't even bother trying to sell old IT equipment, because the paltry amount they'd get is simply not worth the cost of labour to have a staff member sort through, price, list, and actually sell any of it. Sometimes they will if the equipment is valuable and in demand, but often they won't for regular stuff.
    Instead of selling it, often they'll just recycle the equipment at an e-waste depot, or toss it out if no such depot exists locally.
    In either of these cases, they will often give away the equipment for free to people who ask instead.
    It helps if you have an "in" person, that can tell you when they're tossing stuff, and/or put stuff aside for you.
    At work we can sometimes get free equipment that's old and going to be recycled or thrown out anyway. It helps because I work there, and am at least sometimes in charge of deciding what gets tossed and when.
    My entire server setup was acquired that way - it was just going to be recycled anyway:
    Dell T410 2x 4c8t Xeon w/ 12GB RAM, 6 SAS hotswap bays, internal Dell H200 RAID Card, plus an external Dell MD1200 12-bay SAS expander (It also came with another Dell RAID card for the external bay but I replaced it with an HBA for FlexRAID).
    I also picked up an older HP Colour Laser Printer (USB only, so of somewhat limited usefulness) and several toners for it, when we tossed 3 identical printers (I grabbed the one I knew worked, plus all the toners from all 3 printers).
    Coincidentally, I haven't even used the colour printer yet, since I already have a Brother DCP-L2540dw monochrome laser All-in-One printer that I use all the time.

    Thanks so much for joining. My vision is a community based on positive member interaction and helping each other. I believe that if we all work together toward this goal, we will have success in the long run.
    We don't have official forum rules or anything like that yet, but as long as everyone is respectful of each other, and patient with the growing pains that we are going to experience (vBulletin 5 is VERY beta right now) we can make this into an AWESOME community forum.
