  1. Since the rad is pulled from the system and all is dry, I would try reinserting the hose where it belongs then seal it shut by using some epoxy on it. Understand though, the epoxy is very permanent.
  2. not being able to restart or shutdown in windows

    Since you already tried restoring a previous version of windows and that didn't work, have you tried a fresh, clean install of windows 10? I would back up all my files such as documents, pics, etc., then I would use the Windows Media Creation Tool and do a complete fresh install. During the install, be sure to delete all partitions because that will ensure there are no left-over files and stuff from either of the previous Windows installs.
  3. USB 3.0 Built into desk

    Personally, I would like to see a pic of your desk. I have been thinking of building my own desk as well.
  4. I was always under the belief the Chromebook machines were designed to only run the Chrome OS. When did Windows become an option?
  5. Linus iMac pro info

    Since my wife owns and uses one of these machines, I'm really interested in how this all ends up.
  6. Hiding ethernet cable

    Seems like a good idea but if the situation is as the pic shows, it also means removing the trim not only from the floor, but also around the doors. Cable may provide better service in this situation but if he is looking for ease of installment, go with the power line adapters.
  7. Ryzen RAM support

    Just the mobo.
  8. AMD threw Intel a curve ball in February when the chip company announced its Ryzen CPUs would launch in early March. They are fast and significantly cheaper than Intel's equivalent Core processors. It even led to some price cuts by Intel. But with Ryzen chips now making their way into desktop PCs, AMD experienced its first major problem. All variants of the Ryzen 7 desktop processors are locking up PCs. The issue is related to FMA3 code, which are a set of streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) that can greatly enhance the performance of floating point operations carried out by the chips. FMA3 isn't new. AMD added support for the instruction set back in 2012. Story continues....... Just a refresher for those that purchased the AMD Ryzen CPU...

  9. M.2 and HDD won't show up on BIOS

    Looking at the board by clicking the link, there are no IDE connectors.
  10. What are the best speakers for 200 - 300$

    You're joking right? JBL's are nothing but meatgrinders.
  11. What are the best speakers for 200 - 300$

  12. Kernal-Power error help

    Doing a google search on your error message, just about everything that I have found says to make sure that all your drivers are up to date. In the website in this link I found, there is a free version of a program that will check your drivers for free. Might want to give it a shot, got nothing to lose. https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/solved-kernel-power-41-critical-error-on-windows-10/
  13. Kernal-Power error help

    Could you post system specs? Might make it a little easier to diagnose if we knew what we're dealing with.
  14. Ask the folks at U.S. Cellular and find out. IMHO.......
  15. Windows

    Sort of hard to tell what you're trying to say since everything is all run together. Might want to try and break things up a bit so that what you're asking can be better understood.
