  1. Can always initiate a charge back for goods that weren't delivered or failure to provide the "service" paid for, when paying with a credit card. So if the phone turns out to be a complete joke and he refuse to refund you, just go through your credit card provider.
  2. You can literally keep using bitdefender for free. Just get their free trials and make a new account using a throwaway email. Sign out of your account on the bitdefender software (My account > Switch account), sign in the newly created account with the trial activated... And suddenly you have an extra 90 days for free. https://www.bitdefender.com/media/html/consumer/new/get-your-90-day-trial-opt/index.html You can do this also with a 180 days trial if you find one. LTT had one as a sponsor not long ago that I grabbed too. You can keep doing this pretty much infinitely. I've been doing it for the last 2 years or so.
  3. That, or you can download the latest ISO straight from Microsoft if you use a device that doesn't run windows on it, like a mobile phone (or a "mobile browser emulator" extension for chrome). Because if you use a Windows PC, this page : https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10 will make you download their creation tool. But that same page, if you don't use windows (android/iOS phone, Linux, MacOS, etc...), it lets you straight up download the ISO. Quite useful.
  4. On your desk. On the ground, it would pick up more dust that you bring in from walking.
  5. Depends how dusty the environment you live in is. If there's a lot of construction work nearby, if you often leave your window/doors open, etc... One relatively easy way, is if you notice a lot of dust pilling up relatively quickly on your desk or on top of your monitor (basically any places you wouldn't usually be touching)... Then you should probably dust it off every 3 months or so. Otherwise and especially if you have dust filters, 6+ months is fine.

    Wait, you've read their EULA? Then you should also know that while they can technically "ban" his use of a key bought from an "unauthorized reseller"(bullshit to say "we control who is allowed to sell our stuff"), they aren't going to. Otherwise they would've done so to the literal millions of people who did just that before. Some did get deactivated, but those were usually purchased with stolen credit cards and resold quickly for a profit to unknowing buyers. If the keys are legitimate(which they usually are) and come from a system integrator in some other country that gets keys in bulk for dirt cheap... There's no need to worry. Worst case, they only lose less than $10. Better than spending another £150 on a machine that will die off sooner or later. But really, that's only if their current key simply cannot be reused, of course they should go through every possible means of activating it first.

    You don't need to pay $150 for a new license. You can get a license dirt cheap online, be it on ebay or some other gray market website. If the computer that you no longer have, is still operational today and in use, you likely won't be able to "transfer" the license even if you still have it. If it isn't active anymore because it died or something... It could work. Usually it would be better if the license was added to your Microsoft Account, so that you could remotely disable and it reactivate it elsewhere... But it could potentially work to activate Windows 10 anyway. Try it. Worst case it doesn't and it cost you like $10 for a new license on ebay.
  8. I would've personally used a projector and a pull down screen instead. Not only would it be a cheaper setup than all that... (especially if we're not just handed out that tech for free), but it would also be easier to just "pack up" if you ever need to store an extra car in there again. Roll up the screen and everything is up on the ceiling, just need to move the couch. Sure a TV generally provide a better picture quality overall, especially with things like HDR and what not... But you can't deny a projector's versatility. Or maybe I'm just biased because it's what I did in my tiny ass room. Cheapest 1080p projector on amazon and cheapest 100" projector screen. Less than $450 overall. It's a decent experience once you tune the colors a bit... and if you don't install it crooked lol.
  9. The very First thing on a new system? Install windows, don't activate it and bench/test the hardware for hours to a day or two, to make sure it is 100% operational before actually bothering to do anything more to it. Once that's that, setup Windows 10 to get rid of the most of the junk/ads/telemetry. Then I would install my browser of choice, followed by my security suites because I can't live without a proper firewall that I can control what can and cannot access the internet at all time due to me being a control freak. Lastly I would install the software I most use and games.
  10. Are you an expert at soldering? Do you have all the tools required for it? Because that CPU cannot be removed like a regular desktop CPU. It's literally soldered on the socket. If you've answered Yes to that, then go ahead... Try to source an i5 of the same generation on ebay or something. But the cooling system of the laptop might not be adequate to cool a better CPU, resulting in overheating, throttling and overall worse performances. Not to mention, if HP decided to lock the BIOS to that particular CPU, in which case you'd be out of luck. Buying a new system is your best bet at having a functional machine at the end of the day. It can be a used system as well, plenty of gen 4 or above i5 laptops can be found for relatively cheap online... or if you choose AMD instead, avoid anything that isn't ZEN based, it's all utter garbage before that.
  11. You'd have more luck selling that laptop and buying a used one that already has an i5 in it.... But i3 or i5, in the end, that's not the only number that matter. Because there's some low end i5 out there that a newer i3 could rip to shred. It all depends on which model you choose.
  12. You kinda have to. Because if you use an "obviously fake name", they will demand that you fork over an ID with that name on it. Though if you use a legit sounding name, they will likely leave you alone.
  13. Well, good for him I guess. I knew him from Offline TV, but that's all. I barely watch anything gaming related these days anyway...

    AMD WTF!?

    What is broken exactly? You're just raging here without giving a single hint at what you might be experiencing. Please do provide more information, to help us help you make this work. For now, like the others have said... The first thing you should do is update the bios of that B450 motherboard to get it compatible with Zen2 CPUs and improve device compatibility. If you've already done so... My guess is that maybe the GPU or the motherboard is in some way faulty (Could be the RAM as well, really depends on what your exact issue is really). Because there shouldn't be "compatibility" issues here. If something doesn't work, it's usually faulty hardware that doesn't want to play nice.
