  1. Just updated my GeForce drivers, no dice.
  2. Running version 1903 - Windows 10 Pro. There's a 1909 version but I haven't bothered with it yet. Also haven't updated my video card drivers in a while. Honestly, I don't even like updating Windows all that often because of shit like this.
  3. So I just updated Windows today and I noticed that the night light feature found under the Action Center is greyed out. (I can't click it to enable). Also not able to enable it from the display settings. Does anyone know how to fix this issue without editing my registry?
  4. Ok weird question. If it looks like it does fit on there (SLI connector), but It's not actually supposed to go on there, can it cause damage? I mean, I don't think it could because It's just a piece of plastic. I'm surprised this happened because I was holding the air fairly far away to prevent exactly this kinda thing from happening or worse.
  5. The piece of plastic is 2 inches long. Says in my OP. Hmm, yeah, I don't know for sure if it fits over that connector. I don't wanna put it on (even if it looks like it might go on) if it isn't actually supposed to go on there.
  6. Hmm, can you point me out exactly where it would fit onto? Hmm, it looks like it could go on here, but I don't think it does? Same length about.

  8. I just cleaned out my computer with some compressed air and noticed a part / piece of plastic came out--It's 2 inches long with a little groove in it (looks like it might slip over something). I don't know if this part was from the case itself or off a component. Don't know if It's for aesthetics or if it actually served a functional purpose. I looked inside the case and I can't see where it would've come off of. Any guesses?
  9. I fixed this with diskpart. I have the full space now. I think this issue was due to Encryption on the Western Digital Controller.
  10. Would running chkdsk /F /R /X <drive letter> solve this issue? One person said if you do that it should fix the drive but the drive will be slower / won't last long after. Kinda weird how the Healthy Primary Partition is only 582 GB RAW and there are 2 parts Unallocated?If I delete the H: volume it won't delete the unallocated space either? I can't delete the unallocated volumes. I can only create "New Simple Volume" on one of them. Extending the H: volume only allows 1500991 MB which is only 1.5 TB so I'm losing a chuck of storage if I do that?
  11. It looks exactly the same on the inside as a Western Digital EasyStore.
  12. -Just shucked an older Western Digital My Book 5 TB external HDD. -Connected it to my desktop PC and when I double click the drive letter I just see: "H:\ is not accessible - The parameter is incorrect." -I don't need anything on the HDD - will doing a quick format fix this or should I go about addressing this issue another way? It is a bit bizarre that this happened because I was pretty damn careful/cautious when shucking and installing the drive so I have no idea why this error even occurred. Does this message indicate corruption?
  13. Ok, I can confirm that the controller failed and the HDD seems fine. I threw it into an enclosure that has a power brick and connected it via USB and the contents of the HDD show up and I was able to play a movie from the HDD. So my next question -- when I buy a new enclosure should I just get one that only has a USB connector or one that also has a power brick?
  14. Ok, based on the article you posted, it would seem that the SATA to USB 3.0 converter is probably what failed? So, just remove that SATA to USB 3.0 converter and put it into an enclosure like Spakes suggested? https://www.newegg.com/p/0VN-00D1-00005
  15. Right, because it has the controller, correct?
