  1. I just installed an ASUS Radeon RX5700 DUAL EVO Graphics Card in my rig. I was looking to flash the 5700xt BIOS onto it, but couldn't find the BIOS for the identical card online. Does anyone know where I could find the BIOS and if it is worth the risk for the extra 10% performance? Thanks! Also, I thought this card came with a dual BIOS, but can't find the switch anywhere on the card. If anyone could confirm whether or not this card has that it would be much appreciated!
  2. I'm looking to grab a ryzen 5 3600 in the next couple weeks, and I'm wondering how much the price is gonna drop once the 3600xt's hit the market. Right now during COVID prices are kinda inconsistent and shopRBC has the 3600 on sale for $255, which I know isn't a great price, but nowadays it isn't terrible. Is it worth it to wait a few more weeks for the new cpu's to bring prices down, or will it not make that much of a difference, especially because it's more geared toward the 3600x instead?
  3. It's a quad core, but its a few generations back so yeah, that makes sense. I gotta upgrade soon lol
  4. Hi, I've been playing GTAV for a while and it's been running fine on my laptop. However after I installed LSPDFR the fps averages around 35 and I have texture loss/slow texture loading after a while of playing. I checked task manager and my CPU is staying pinned to 100% all the time and my GPU is idling at less than 5% all the time. I made sure the GPU was detected in settings, and I looked at some previous threads that said GTAV usually doesn't use that much of the GPU. However, none of the threads I saw had GPU usage even close to as low as mine. I have a 2 year-old Acer Nitro 5 laptop with an i5-7300HQ and a GTX1050. Thanks for the help!
  5. Hello, A while ago I decided to try and install a custom ROM onto my samsung galaxy grand prime (SM-G530W). Unfortunately, after I had installed TWRP, the touch screen wouldnt work and I would end up not being able to unlock the phone and choose to either keep it read-only or root it. This means I can't access the TWRP menu to actually reset the phone manually. I tried some fixes online but nothing worked. Anyways, now I just want to reset it and reinstall normal android to use it as a secondary phone. However, once I put it into download mode I can't figure out how to actually reset the phone. Since I can't use TWRP I need to reset it using my PC, but don't know how to. Any help would be appreciated, Thanks a lot!
  6. Whenever I try to access the drive it says it's corrupted (in windows explorer). Before everything started crashing it would pick up the drive in both disk management and diskpart. Now, nothing works at all.
  7. Hello, I have a corrupted hard drive I would like to reset. Unfortunately, disk management and diskpart crash whenever I try to run them with the hard drive plugged in. Is there any way to reformat the hard drive when it seems to crash any application that has to do with it? Thanks!
  8. Aight. Do you know anything about that disk initialization thing btw?
  9. Hi, I have a 1TB HDD that was working fine until a few minutes ago. It just got dropped from the list of devices on my pc, I can't access anything from it anymore. Just checked BIOS and the cable and it's still recognized by the PC, just not by windows. I've read you can use disk management to initialize the disk, but will this erase all data? When I did open the disk management, it also said that the drive was empty (~981GB) when I know I had at least 400GB of files on the HDD. Any help would be appreciated, it's just photos but obviously would really like to get them back. Thanks in advance guys! EDIT: This just happened after a windows update, also wondering if maybe I need to reinitialize the disk after that. Thanks EDIT II: Tried to use the disk initialize tool and it said "the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error..." Btw I have an acer nitro 5 laptop.
  10. Very simple, just get a large plastic bag and cut out a hole on the end of it the diameter of your lens. And don't forget to use a lens hood as well .
  11. Just wondering, I don't know why. Let me know if it still works too P.S.: I only got into photography a little while ago. My oldest lens is a Canon 50mm 1.8II.
  12. How much money do you want to spend? How light must it be? How much performance do you want? Remember, you can't get all three good (usually) in one laptop. That being said, here are a few potential recommendations (All in CAD) https://www.newegg.ca/black-force-asus-tuf-gaming-fx505dt-eb73-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834235185 - Ryzen 7 3750H, GTX1650, 512GB NVME SSD, 120hz display, $1000. The 120hz display is a big perk for this one. Battery kinda sucks tho. Most gaming laptops have bad batteries. https://www.newegg.ca/black-msi-gf-series-gf63-9sc-060ca-thin-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834155210 $1000. This one is basically the same, has a little less storage but a better CPU and is quite a bit thinner a lighter. https://www.newegg.ca/rog-strix-g-black-asus-rog-strix-iii-g-gl531gu-pb74-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834235208 - 9th gen i7, 120hz display, 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, GTX1660ti, $1700 A bit more, but you'll be able to get great frames on most games and capitalize on the high refresh rate display. Slightly better battery than others. Hope this brief list helps.
