  1. which is an example of one of the few reasons to need to flash your bios doing it regularly is not a good idea. and like grockle said it will improve nothing on your gpu.
  2. A massive, capital letters NO Unless you NEED to, don't flash the bios on anything - motherboard or GPU. A Bios flash failure can brick your computer if it fails. some people will disagree and say that they dual bios / flash their bios all the time / its much safer now etc etc but theyre wrong and theyre giving inexperienced people bad, unsafe advice. Edit: Like Whiro said, if youre itching to do something to squeeze more performance out of your card you should definitely turn towards the much more risk/reward friendly overclocking
  3. could be alot of things. If you have access to a different computer try installing the gpu in it to see if your computer is the issue (for example a bad mobo) or test a different video card in the slot.
  4. I love that you made this a post like 5 years after it came out. It took me a sec to understand but you mean when you kill the enemies it drops like health and ammo and you don't like it. yeha I kinda thought that too when I played it, but thats doom
  5. so you dont care about any files on the laptop ? just download windows 10 and reinstall off of a usb key (boot from usb) as long as hardware is ok (it sounds like its fine) then you should have no issues from there. https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10
  6. I updated my gpu-z to 2.29 like yours - I have a perfcapreason still. Is yours turned off in the settings? its really handy when your experiencing low gpu usage because it tells you what the limiting factor on your gpu is and can help you track down the issue. its a good starting point. may want to also get in contact with your gpu manufacturer for a possible RMA - (ie a return) they will have some advice for troubleshooting as well. may as well start getting in contact with them now as it can take forever to get a response.
  7. seconded. clear cmos will fix your problem. the best way toclear it is to connect the two pins on your mother board as shown in your manual. the quick and dirty way to do it is to pop out the watch battery and pop it back in after a couple seconds.
  8. its not RAM, having a single stick vs a dual stick doesn't make THAT much of a difference. that being said - did you buy 2133mhz ram? or did you just forget to turn on the XMP profile in your BIOS? (check motherboard manual how to do this) for your low gpu usage, download GPU-Z, fire up a game and check the sensors tab. what does it say your PerfCapReason is?
  9. seriously? that alone is worth like $200
  10. Not a bad find! definitely worth keeping or selling, not garbage by any means and should not have been in a scrap pile if it actually still runs. I would look at doing some routine maintenance on it, like cleaning and maybe redoing cpu thermal paste then do a clean windows install and update drivers. Should be a fine rig for some light duty gaming at 1080p resolution. The graphics card is a radeon hd 7850? its old but still ok, should be able to play games on low medium no problem.
  11. I would have a nice regular gift as back up if I were you, like flowers and hot chocolate etc to go with the earplugs. You know her better than me, so earplugs might be great, but you should give them with something else more conventional just in case. Make sure you explain why you got her earplugs and that you were trying to be considerate!
  12. I dont think it supports over 60hz for 4k. it says specifically 60hz on the soundbar website, I'd try to avoid using the passthrough, run direct to the tv and somehow get the soundbar to work after the fact. or return it
