    Audio over DisplayPort to HDMI???

    Roughly what I had thought though I didn't realize that DP had such a limit on distance. Exactly the info I was looking for though. Thanks a ton.

    Audio over DisplayPort to HDMI???

    Have a unique situation at work and am looking for a reliable answer, so I came to LTT forums... :) Need to set up a monitor that is required to be roughly 40 feet from the connection, we were looking to run it as HDMI to carry audio as well but the only device output is DisplayPort. Will audio still carry over when converting from DP to HDMI? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  3. Lol. I did warranty repairs on laptops for about a year. Bending pins back is similar in the way that it takes a LOT of patience. It's no fun when you accidentally un-solder one of the SUPER small diodes on a PCB. But patience and a slow steady hand with very small movements at a time can make all the difference. And I for as much as I played Operation as a kid, I wouldn't say I was ever more than "decent" at it.
  4. I had this happen once with my Phenom II x4. Problem I had was that I accidentally let the AIO pump slip right when it came out. When it dropped down I managed to bend about 20-30 pins. Took me close to 2 hours to get them all back where it would drop back into the slot, but it still worked (and still works) just fine.
  5. I'm using Cloudfare's DNS both 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 for primary and secondary as configured in my router for WAN. If you want to see which one is out there that will give you the best benefit you could check out DNS Benchmark. It's a free utility, just make sure to run the second test that it asks if you want to run and it'll sort them from best to worst.

    Help Please Bad Drives Or Something Else?

    I've seen a few strange drive issues. Something you might consider is using the updated HIRENS boot CD (USB) and perform a low level format of the old drives. No guarantee it'll help, but a solid low level format/zeroing out the drive, has helped me to revive a few that were giving me some problems. One example would be my WD 1TB Green storage drive that I had carried over from my old build. It's since been replaced with a 1TB SSD, but I was still able to get it up and running again as it was acting up. Shorthand... Windows could see the drive but couldn't create partitions or make use of the drive. I had also attempted creating a partition via HIRENS, but that didn't work either. By zeroing out the drive it worked fine again. FYI: HIRENS is a free bootable ISO download that contains a decent amount of tools/utilities for diagnostic and troubleshooting. Just load it to USB through Rufus and you're set. The updated version loads Windows PE. Just UEFI boot from the USB and look in the Utilities folder that's on the desktop.

    Will multi-gpu setups be a thing with NVLink?

    Since I haven't come across one, perhaps we could hope for a video from the team with a spread of games showing games that do, and don't, support SLI over NVlink. Even though I saw someone state this will only be available on the 2080 and 2080ti it would still be interesting to see the results. Also, while I doubt it since I'm not aware of it working over SLI, (yes I'm aware that Linus soft-SLI bridged a 1060 with a mining card) does anyone know if there's been any rumor of being able to run an NVlink bridge between a 2080 and a 2080ti?
  8. At this point I might suggest you get on youtube and watch a couple build guides to see if they might be able to offer any insight to make sure you've installed everything correctly. If it does seem like you've done everything correctly, I would perhaps try to test the video card in a friends computer to make sure that's not the issue. If the video card seems fine then you may have to look into getting an RMA on rather the motherboard or the CPU (if that's the case i'd bet on the motherboard personally). Also, have you tried installing the RAM 1 stick at a time to see if perhaps one of them is the cause?
  9. When you push the power button, if you don't hear or see your fans kicking on then it's likely that you rather didn't seat your RAM properly, the CPU isn't seated properly or (a more common mistake amongst new builders) you didn't connect the additional power connector on the motherboard. Yours is an 8-pin connector at the top left of the board. Also, if you didn't install or didn't properly install the mounting posts for your motherboard in the case prior to installing it would also cause a short that would prevent post or power-on with the potential to short out the board and/or damage other components.

    PC won't get past BIOS(again)

    Looks like there's a "Possible" fix by ensuring that you have the latest available Driver and BIOS updates. The post I came across made it sound like a BIOS update for the Graphics Card itself... Link: https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?59850-GTX-970-980-BIOS-update-for-DisplayPort-issues Hopefully this will help, or at least help you to better understand the issues that you're having.

    Nvidia Shadowplay records my second monitor?

    Then my best suggestion at this point would be to try switching which display is connected to which port on your video card and correct your #1 and #2 display setting in windows. Give it a shot after that and hopefully this will at least get it working the way that you'd like.

    MSI GX-70 Keyboard Issue

    Also, some of those ribbon connectors can be a pain. Have you looked at it under good light and/or magnification to make sure the ribbon slot has no bent pins at all? I've seen this be an issue before typically on the cable side, but it does happen on the board side too on occasion. At it's worst point you may have to touch up all the solder points for the keyboard connector. If you can validate pins on both sides are good, all the solder has been heated up to reestablish a proper connection and the problem still persists, then you probably have another problem elsewhere. Laptops are also picky about their built in keyboards. If you plug it in while the machine is running it may cause these types of issues, though it typically corrects itself after a restart.

    MSI GX-70 Keyboard Issue

    You said you've reset the BIOS, but have you pulled/unsoldered the battery and BIOS battery to let it clear that way for say.... 10mins or so?

    Help right click on taskbar does not work

    It does a LOT of cleanup that otherwise remains filled with old caches and temp files as well as certain optimizations. The first time you run it clears a lot of things that windows has to re-cache. While it may take a little longer to boot the first time or 2, it's the running system that matters outright anyways. If it didn't correct the problems that you were having and/or things got worse, this indicates to me at least that there is a clear problem with windows itself and should be reinstalled. As a rule I reinstall windows COMPLETELY at least once a year just to keep it cleared from all the garbage that windows likes to collect. I suggested DiskMax as it helps to keep the system running smoothly for as long as possible. On my Windows drive I run DiskMax once a week for maintenance. I'm not saying you have to use it but all software I recommend is software that I myself have used and put to the test to validate what it does as well as it's efficiency. This particular program I've used from WindowsXP to current with good result. It seems that your problem is somewhere in windows itself with ActiveX functionality or similar implement within the windows interface. A clean reinstall, to me, seems like your best option.
