  1. I am new to the networking side of things first and foremost. What would be more beneficial and a better choice between paying someone to host a website and/or media server vs hosting the site yourself? I would like to learn new things throughout the process, I'm not afraid of putting in any effort nor technical know-how. The site wouldn't be meant for any particular purpose but mostly as a demonstration for myself in means of learning hands on.
  2. I found a few that I can recommend. All at a $50 price range and 600 watt. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139028&ignorebbr=1 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139197&ignorebbr=1 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153232&ignorebbr=1
  3. What is your budget? Also what is your location?
  4. I would upgrade just to be safe. But that is just my personal opinion. It is better to have more wattage than that of what is required.
  5. Here ya go. https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-VS248HR-Gaming-Monitor-DVI-D/dp/B014RKZ81O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1510612723&sr=8-1&keywords=asus+monitor+24+inch&dpID=51DT3BpmP3L&preST=_SX300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
  6. It seems like a very well rounded laptop.
  7. A lot of the time, a motherboard will be labeled as to where you should put the RAM. Be it DIMM1, DIMM2, etc. You could also resort back to looking at your motherboard user manual.
  8. I think they sell for around $200-$300 on ebay. EDIT: --------- They sell for more. https://www.ebay.com/i/162695740362?chn=ps&dispctrl=1
  9. Have you recently installed any updates? The new Fall Creators Update: Build 1709 has been causing a lot of performance issues for a lot of people.
  10. You could always try a fresh install of windows.
  11. If you don't plan on overclocking you could knock it down to a 7600 rather than a 7600k. There is also the case of the new Coffee Lake processors coming out next year as well.
  12. I would also recommend not changing the passwords of any account on that device just as a precaution. Use another device to change your passwords.
  13. I'd recommend backing up your phone to iCloud, and if it is an unlocked phone go ahead and factory reset it. If it is a phone under a major provider, take it to your closest carrier location and let them dilly dally with it.
  14. Go for an Intel chip, they are the most widely used and may help with your "Hackintosh" prospects.
  15. If your motherboard itself has display outputs, I'd try removing your graphics card and to try running solely on your Intel HD graphics as a test. If things seem to go well(Obviously you'll have decreased performance but watch for the lag you described), you could then assume your GPU is the problem.
  16. Are you overclocking or just running stock speeds?
  17. Make sure all of your drivers are installed and updated. Also checking your Windows Update couldn't hurt to try.
  18. I usually don't give Windows Media Player any hope. VLC Media Player is way more diverse and reliable.
  19. Hmm. That is bizarre. Typically RAM is a very straight forward installation. I would just recommend dilly dallying in your BIOS settings, there is likely something there. By chance could you check each stick of RAM? Disconnecting the RAM sticks just to see if possibly 1 or 2 sticks are damaged for whatever reason?(Run your PC with a select bit of RAM, disconnecting the other bits) Doing that you could narrow down if it is a motherboard issue or a RAM issue. Also if you haven't already, update your BIOS.
  20. Just as a formality, check your motherboard to make sure that you can have anything above 16gb's of RAM
  21. I would strongly advise against it but there may be some hoodwinked way of making it work. If you mess up though, it could be damaging to your hardware.
  22. I don't want to be a bringer of bad news but currently there have been a lot of issues with overclocking the Ryzen chips and also overclocking the ram. While there may be a solution to your problem it is likely that your motherboard has software bugs (all new motherboards have bugs at this point) and you may just have to wait for your motherboard manufacturer to release new BIOS updates.
  23. It could just be a case of poor design. I think there are plenty of reasons lap-desks never quite took off.
  24. In a small way that theory could explain the phones cheaper price than the other leading competitors.
