  1. No, Movavi doesnt only for NVidia and Intel, but it does allow a tick box for OpenGL and thats about it. As with Blender as im fairly new with, the only settings i could find were in the PREFERENCE options, if there are any other different options that im unaware about, then no. But other than that all settings are set to AMD cpu & gpu, but i have tried toggling with all different variants and still with no changes. Did you see my zip folder? Only asking cause i uploaded it, but im not sure if its here as i cannot see the attachment on my OP.
  2. Hello to all, Im experiencing an unusual problem i think and i cant really put a finger onto why this is happening, my only one conclusion that i have, is that there is an actual problem with AMD's line up with their GPU's driver or BIOS issues. As im new to AMD products and this is my very first usage of all their product lines, im finding it very difficult to diagnose. So i thought i would come here to ask, am i missing something or is it just another AMD bug/problem waiting yet to be fixed? All my troubleshooting & diagnosing efforts have all led me to a brick wall and dont really know where to go now. Here are my PC specs as of right now... CPU: Ryzen 7 2700 MOBO: Gigabyte X370-Gaming 5 GPU: Gigabyte RX 5700 GAMING OC 8G RAM: G.Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZB DUAL CHANNEL: 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz TridentZ X2 = 32GB SSD: Intel 500GB HDD: 2x 2TB RAID 0 to = 4TB PSU: 1200W Cooler Master Watt OS: Win10 Pro 64bit Vers. 1903 Build. 18362.418 ***NEWLY EDITED HERE*** My BIOS Vers. is Gigabytes F40 I had a Gigabyte GTX960 Gaming 1 4GB GPU, that i just swapped for the now RX 5700, a couple of days ago. Here is my problem/situation. I started trying to create videos and the software that i use mostly is Movavi, but now slowly learning atm Blender (as of 2-3 weeks ago). Now as i go to encode/render my newly made video its taking now 5 x longer on my RX 5700 as to my GTX960. When i dug a little deeper into it, the task manager is showing only 25% usage in Movavi and 50% in Blender of CPU usage and doesnt even use any GPU power what so ever, as the GPU power in task manager is always showing 0%. Over the past couple of days i have been trying to fix this, but to no avail, so here is everything i have tried and done so far. Firstly, i went through all the video editing software and adjusted all settings within the software to only use GPU resources only and AMD radeon software to force the software to use only GPU, still 0 results/change. Secondly, since the above didnt work, i then dl'd the DDU software wiped all NVidia files, then AMD files, both in safemode, reinstalled the latest drivers from AMD's driver page, still 0 results/change. Thirdly, since 1 & 2 steps failed, i then tried looking into my mobo's BIOS settings, but there wasnt really anything that i could see in there to change/modify to solve it, so still 0 results/change. My method of thinking was along the lines of perhaps like hotswap drive settings and virtual settings, thought maybe perhaps a GPU rendering settings would be in there. Lastly i decided to encode straight to my SSD, still 0 results/change. So now i went googling for fixes, but to no avail. All i could find was the basic blah-blah about how to change settings inside the software which i already new and the other info was all about how there is a problem with AMD and OBS. So after having 0 luck i then decided to dig around inside my OS. After having a look around inside windows there really wasnt anything i could adjust or change that seemed important or relevant towards improving performance for rendering/encoding purposes, so i let it be and went to bed @4am lolz. FACTS: This is what i do know. Before i changed my GTX960 to the newer RX 5700, i could encode/render a 5min video to 2k in about 10-15mins on average, now using the newer GPU it takes or it says 45mins. As this being a weird time period i decided to look in the task manager and found that my new GPU Movavi runs @0% GPU & 30% CPU usage, Blender @0% GPU & 50-55% CPU usage, as verses to my old GPU, it would be running @99-100% and CPU roughly @25-40% using the Movavi software, dont know about blender as i never used it with old GPU GTX960. Before you have a look at my attached zip files to this post i noticed that im now kind of using GPU power, so what ever i touched last night in the windows 10 settings must of somehow tweaked the performance. So now i think perhaps the problem is with M.Soft Windows OS and not the vid editing software or hardware. Its just too bad that i dont remember what exactly i did last night, but before last night the GPU was running @0%, now im getting at least getting it up to 25%. As i mentioned before, im fairly new when it comes to AMD products. I have never hardly had any issues out of the 10+ yrs using intel & nvidia only products, so i dont know if its my lack of knowledge fully understanding AMD wording of their techno jargon, or im actually just now discovering the limitations of their products. But i cant understand how the tech youtubers like, Linus, JayzTwoCents and others can run bench marks on their AMD product line and get great results with Blender and i was at least expecting with my current setup to be pretty good or ok to handle encoding/rendering at respectable speeds, but when my crappier GPU does better then my newer one and also not on so good software, so one has to question sometimes, WTF! Anyhow, thanks for reading my post and i am hoping to find someone in this world to help me solve this issue as the only 1 option that i have up my sleeve is to do a windows format, but i have a feeling its not going to do much, if at all anything, but after realizing now that somehow that i got that extra performance out of my GPU after fooling around with some settings last night in windows, is why im contemplating/entertaining the idea of a reformat of windows. Cheers,
  3. I had exact same issue... Mine was because of drivers. Since you did a clean install, have you updated all your GPU drivers? Once i updated all my NVidia drivers, still had same prob, it wasnt until i updated M.Soft Win then my GPU went back to normal. Just make sure that your OS & NVidia drivers are all up to date. Cheers,
  4. Hi All, I just came across this vid on youtube, is Linus aware of this? I sat there watching the whole thing and they never explained why Linus was wrong, other than the fact that "Linus, shouldnt complain about the price after he bought it". So what was the point of these guys releasing this video? Please someone explain it to me, i feel like im missing something here. Cheers,
  5. @newcbomb @79wjd You guys are missing the point, look at the pic's, this is what it specifically says... Pic1. Test ExpressVPN's full arsenal for a whopping 30 days without spending anything. See for yourself what this service is about. Most Popular VPN of 2018. Pic2. Try it for free for 30 days. So i go to ExpressVPN website and their is absolutely nothing about a FREE 30 days trial. i have to PAY upfront, then cancel within 30days. So? The 2nd pic says JULY, so they just put it their advert. there just recently, and when a company puts an advert, they outline specifically what to put and say, even Linus has said this for his sponsors on what and how to say it. @danomicar Its not about the damages, its about reporting wrong and misleading information. Cheers.
  6. Hello All, Im asking for help in redirecting me to a company or law firm that looks into online bullshit practices done by companies. I live in Australia so i dont know if i can do anything as most if not all companies are subsided in the USA. Australia i dont think has anything that i know of that i can report ONLINE business and companies bad practices too. Here is the issue... Im seeing this as a scam as the same as the loot box scenario in the gaming industry, and i have noticed that this malpractice that companies are started to do, is just getting worse, so i want to report it as i know its just going to get worse and worse in the near future. So whats happening? Well whats happening is that companies not all, but most are doing this FREE TRIAL, but they want all your details even your banking details in order to use their so pro-claimed FREE TRIAL, and its false, misleading and bullshit. Because i didnt want companies to get my real c/c, i ended up getting another c/c without having any money in the account. So i could at least give them my card details knowing that if they try any shady crap they cant touch my money. So once that so called FREE TRIAL period had ended and you didnt cancel your sub, they will bill you. Now, i just looked at checking out a VPN program to use, as i was searching this and that, most of all the websites i went to were saying FREE TRIAL - CLICK HERE, once i clicked on the link this happened, i couldnt use their product unless i paid 1yr worth upfront, despite them saying 30-FREE TRIAL. When i questioned their online support staff about where is this 30day FREE trial, they said no i misunderstood them and blah blah, anyhow here is the transcript... As you can point blank see that they are truly lying and playing around with words. As you can see just by doing a google search you see how they mislead ppl... Whats even worse is if you go to ALL of those sites where it says TOP 10 & what ever, they all say FREE TRIAL, as you can see here... So basically you can see 100% proof of evidence that they are lying in their advertising and getting away with it. Im using ExpressVPN in this example as 1 out of many other companies are also pulling this bullshit as well. Sure ExpressVPN can say, we dont tell others what to put on their websites, but im sure as shit they are paying $$$ to create this false and bullshit advertisements. So their should be an online law, like how things used to be when the internet and PC's were first built, FREE TRIAL meant FREE TRIAL, even if its 1 week or 2 week (14 day) or 1 month (30 day). But the law should be that IF your company wants to offer or have a TRIAL, it should be out lined clearly the A) Time period & B) Have Full access to their product & C) Not having them ask for personal info, especially banking details. If companies want to play these sneaky and bullshit tactics, then they ought to be fined and fined huge! And if these companies want to use the excuse "Oh we cant control what others say and do about our products on their sites", yeah! then why is the government spending loads and tonnes of $$$ on the serious hunting mission for torrenting sites? like PirateBay? They have no control on who and what their users upload! So if anyone can point me to law firm or someone that i can report this sneaky and bullshit tactics to an authority government agency i would be more and happy to report this to them. HOW CAN SHIT BE FREE IF THEY WANT MY PERSONAL DETAILS AND MONEY UPFRONT !!!!!!! please someone explain this logic to me.... Cheers, CK
  7. Yeah cool, It wasnt around til 2005'ish give or take a year or 2 was when my friend and I started dabbing into Linux, we first started off with Ubuntu, then a little of mint & manjaro. As those names sound familiar to me, and i think Citrix too, but i could be wrong. The reason why we stopped was because we were running into barriers, and my friend and i werent developers or coders, as we were learning, but only if we had someone that was knowledgable enough to teach and show us, perhaps we could of learnt it. But at that time there wasnt any REAL info, and trying to get software and hardware to work was a nightmare for us... For example. we were trying to get our optical drive to work, and after around a week or so we still couldnt get it to work, i just remember reading one guide after another, trying all the different methods etc... And still nothing. We knew back then my friend and i that Linux would take off and be awesome if someone would just make a linux OS like Ubuntu to be similar like windows it would take off, we were wanting to do that ourselves, but because my friend and i were very limited in what we can do. Meaning it was one thing reading and understanding code, but starting from scratch like creating code, thats another thing! But this course i have booked myself in, the teachers have told me that i would be dealing with Linux base software, so i was very curious on how far Linux had come wince last time my friend and i played with it. Before you say Linux and no one would ever know what your talking about, now i have started seeing website support for Linux, like gaming platforms, steam, nvidia etc... Going from trying to install everything manually for every single thing compared to seeing how companies have linux support on their websites, it might not ba as daunting now as it was last time. Plus also things have changed too hardware wise, like optical drives, who has optical drives now??? i mean i have a Blu-Ray player, slash DVD burner and i havent used for that long that when i put a disc in it the other day the thing was loud as fuck and grinding it ass off, lol!!! I have had my optical drive in my PC now for roughly 6yrs, give or take a few yrs, and i only ever used the thing a couple of times just to install my Win7 OS, and ripped a few movies from DVD to hard drive. So going from my friend and i spending weeks trying to install an optical driver for linux, to not even needing an optical drive, boy things have come a long way, i just watch a Linus vid the other day where now you boot off Linux on a thumb drive, A BLOODY FUCKING THUMB DRIVE !!! Without even touching the main OS, i was in total shock, let me tell ya. This was unheard of back in the day. But anyhow, you have given me a great start and after watchin that linus vid, i had downloaded PoP-OS, it was going to load it onto my virtual machine to have a look around, but im thinking perhaps ubuntu is the way to go to be perfectly honest, as it looks like a more industry standard, but i know more once i start my ccna course to see how and where linux is used. Cheers,
  8. Geez thanks for the info, thanks for giving a head start!
  9. @Windows7ge Yeah unfortunately with my modem the only thing i can really do is look at things and hit the reset button to reboot the modem and thats virtually it. About Linux i was actually considering of putting together a linux based OS on a little PC that i have laying around just so i can dibble and dabble with it, i played around with ubuntu like 10-15yrs ago and thats about it, never really gotten back into linux. But i am seriously now contemplating on getting off my lazy ass and learn linux, as linux has come a far way from what i can tell, dont get me wrong tho i like windows, but i feel like companies like microsoft and apple are so consumed by the $$$ in the market that they are now to the point where they are just bullies now. I have book myself in school to do the 4 or 5 yr cisco course, i used to install servers and local machines for small businesses, but due to my health condition i had to shut up shop. But i do miss the work tho, lol just thinking how geekish that sounds. So im kind of thinking of doing a server setup at home, but instead of running microsoft software ill run a nas with linux. At least this way i can keep myself on top of things like server side tech, which i really do love and miss. Which was half of the reason why i was tempting this little project of splitting the nic's, cause i was going to run linux through virtual box just to learn and get the gist of it. So i was going to run virtual box with linus OS and use my PC as like a local machine on the server, that way i could learn things with out having have to run between PC to PC. But i think the best way to go is just pull out this shitty old PC that i got put linux on it and do things that way as trying to run it from one PC would just be making it harder for me to diagnose if something were to go wrong. As far as changing DNS on local machine, yeah im doing that right now, as my ISP has blocked certain websites that i can not access, unless i change the DNS settings on the local machines. Thats another thing that really shits me with this shitty ISP modem, i can not create static IP and address to machines on the network, etc... I prefer to do things old school and do things manually cause i dont really like this automated stuff, cause when things go wrong its very hard to diagnose them. When you ask to get something fixed now in Windows 10 it doesnt tell you anything, whereas 2000NT and WinXP at least showed you what it was looking at and diagnosing and when you saw the system hang on that particular area you knew, ok i think thats where the problem is... Now windows 10 just says TROUBLESHOOTING and when its finished it just says cant fix, contact blah blah to take a look. Which is why im thinking of switching to linux, my problem is i gotta get off my ass and learn it, lol. Got on any suggestions on linux OS, for server side OS and local mach based OS? Cheers,
  10. @Electronics Wizardy @Windows7ge Cheers guys! I didnt think of that pinging through CMD, but as far as going through the same switch, i could bust out a switch that i have laying around and create a different network config. But as far as the project goes, well the reason why im doing it, is more so for curiosity more or less, you know that IT Tech bug, just thinking if it could be done how would you. Cause at the end of the day im still using the PC resources in order to power the virtual machines, as im aware of that. My biggest problem that i truely have is my modem/router as it came from my ISP and its very limited on what i can do with it, if i had the $$$ i would go and buy my own personal one. The one i have now i cant change DNS settings, cant even boot/disconnect 1 device from it, this shows how limited it is and i hate being tied down with budgetized crap! But thanks again for both of you guys help Cheers, PS. If i can get it to work ill update this post, just incase someone else might come along in the future and wants to attempt the same thing
  11. Hello, I am wondering if anyone can help me out with situation that i am having, if there is someone around here that can help me setup my pc & Virtual Box software. What im trying to do is simply this, my motherboard has 2 network cards built in, so i thought to myself instead of leaving one of my network cards just sit there and do nothing, i thought why not use the spare network plug do some work. So my idea is to have my pc which is the host use my "Killer Ethernet Adapter" whilst allowing my virtualbox use the "Intel Ethernet Adapter". I think i have it setup properly but there isnt anyway i can say for sure that its operating how i would like, so ill list the things that i have done so you can better understand and answer me properly! I have changed the settings to my VirtualBox Software to only use my Intel Adapter by, So now im guessing that my virtual machine will only be using my INTEL NETWORK ADAPTER, yeah? I ran a test by disabling the adapter from the host and i couldnt get the internet to work inside the virtual machine, when i enabled it again, i got internet. So this tells me that its actually using the right network adapter, which is what i want it to do. This is whats baffling me... I had my other network adapter disabled the "Killer Adapter" and could bring up FaceBook and YouTube, but no other website, just came up with a dead page. When i enabled the "Killer Adapter" i could view and surf the web as normal. But how can i know for sure that my pc which is the host is actually using the Killer Adapter and not the Intel one? Is there any way possible or a setting somewhere to ONLY enable my pc, the HOST to only use nothing but the Killer Adapter? If so, how would i check it? Cheers,
  12. Ok i did it again and it didnt work i got the blue screen again, i think its software based issue, cause this time i wrote down the error info and this is what it said... File:\Windows\system32\winload.exe Error Code: 0xc0000225 Press ENTER to try again Press F8 for startup settings But its here when i press ENTER or F8 and nothing happens, then i have to switch it of from the PSU and reset the BIOS. BUT, this time when i reset the bios i didnt go into bios settings, windows loaded, as soon as everything loaded then i got the memory dump screen. I rebooted whilst this time pressing DELETE and then got the BIOS change setting screen, went in and defaulted everything back to the way i had it, just upped the RAM to 2666. Once windows loaded, everything worked but just couldnt LEFT+CLICK on my mouse, everything else about the worked, just not the left click. Dont know why this time the mouse malfunctioned and i know it was just a glitch as it was the logitech software once loaded disabled that function on me. So i think for now im happy with my pc and the way it runs atm, but i have a funny feeling that my problem is due not having the FULL version of M.Soft Win 10, as its a Win7 upgrade to 10. Im only coming to this conclusion as in the error message its pointing out a system32 error. Now its quit possible i could spend hours possibly days on getting my CPU and RAM tweaked upto OC specs, but as far as it goes the PC right now is running and operating as i like it to run, so im not going to waste more time, energy and effort on trying to boost the memory speed. So i want to thank you for trying to help me, muchly appreciated Cheers,
  13. Hello to one and all, I have recently changed from Intel to AMD and couldnt be happier to be perfectly honest, but since its my first AMD like for ever im kind of a noob when dealing with AMD and setups. To keep this post brief ill do my best to try and keep it short and simple, but im having a hard time trying to understand certain things and im hoping someone around here could help me out. Again, i just want to make it perfectly clear this is my very first time dealing with AMD setups and parts. Hardware CPU: Ryzen 2700 RAM: G.Skill F4-3200C16D-16GTZB DUAL CHANNEL: 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz [TridentZ] 1.35V MOBO: Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming-5 GPU: Gigabyte GTX 960 Gaming 1 4gb Windforce PSU: Enermax 850w OS: [upgraded] Windows 10 Pro build 1809 I am having issues with my memory, im happy with my setup as is, so i dont really care if i cant get more speed, im just merely here for knowledge and learning purposes, to try and get a better understanding on whats my problem. Here is whats going, in BIOS i enable the XMP profile and in the window it says applied 3200, in the second option it says 2133, when windows loads and i look in task manager and CPU-Z it says 2133. So i disabled the XMP in BIOS and manually applied 2933, which is what the AMD CPU is rated at, but once i apply, the PC reboots then i get an error bluescreen, with 2 options, F8 Reboot and ENTER to start. None of which works, so i power off my machine from the power button, but then goes into this endless loop of just rebooting with a black screen and then i have to turn power off from the wall. So now i have to reset my BIOS, upon doing so then the MOBO error comes up stating that the BIOS has been reset please check your settings, then i get back into BIOS and system at this point is ok. So what i have currently now setup is a 2666 speed manually inputted on the memory and my PC runs fine, im happy with it no problems. What my system is running right now, Ryzen Master --> with the GAME MODE activated GPU OC [OC GURU II] --> GPU CLOCK (BASE/BOOST: 1376/1439 Mhz) <-> MEMORY CLOCK 7410 Mhz Ram --> 2666 Mhz With this setup the PC is doing exactly what i want from it and im really happy with the performance, but im here to try and find out why exactly i cannot go over 2666Mhz as i can go upto 3200Mhz. I thought at first it was a software issue, with the Ryzen Master, but i cant make it past POST or BIOS, which now leads me to hardware config or perhaps compatibility. So im just curious if anyone has had this issue, or does anyone have an explanation as to what is exactly happening. Cheers,
  14. No. You can only put SATA drives in that particular laptop. FYI Depends on the particular mobo, will depend its M.2 locations. But if you have a look at this pic it shows you what generally it is, that you need to look out for.
  15. Oh i see, thanks for the further explaination, now i understand it now. Thank you!
