    Are You Uninstalling Epic Games Launcher?

    It's funny you mention this because my account was hacked just two days ago. I was sitting in my bed when I noticed a I got a $5 charge to them, and a $50 charge just minutes after. Luckily I saw it right away and shut it down. I did receive a security email from them a day a day before, but it wasn't at the top of my priorities (I'm a little upset that there wasn't a "Not you? Click here" type message). I didn't have the time when I saw it to take care of finding out how to change my password. I'm really uncertain to how he got in, but seeing that he also tried on different websites (That HAD the same password shhh) that he didn't get in from simply typing in my info. Luckily PayPal got everything back to me just last night. Overall this experience has ruined my trust in Epic Games. I'm usually very secure with my personal information/accounts (besides having some sites with similar passwords, which I changed the few that did.)
  2. Hello! I've been spending a lot of time trying to figure out some of the games that I can play with my friends at a party, but I haven't been finding many that appeal to my friends. What are some of your favorite LAN/couch games to play with your friends? Ideally I'm looking for 4+ local player games. These are a little easier to browse thanks to steam. However, a game that locally supports two+ players while being able to connect to another system of two+ players would also work, and opens up some more doors. I don't necessarily need a full list, just some favorites. On a side note, can anyone think of a fun little local game my girlfriend and I can play when she comes over? it can't be too mechanically difficult, and ideally have controller support. I used gang beasts for 8 players at my last "party," but people soon got bored (understandably). I've even considered buying another xbox 360 or two, and connecting them for 4 v 4 versus mode, but this is obviously costly. If you have any other ideas for a fun LAN/couch set up let me know I'm not fully set on a PC exclusive party. Thanks for helping!
  3. I felt so stupid because I realized that right after my last comment I had a LONG night at work. Thank you so much! I should be able to take it from here.
  4. Damn I totally missed that. I only checked to make sure it "supported" SATA but not what I needed. To double check though, an NVMe SSD would work, correct?
  5. I'm using the Gigabye GA-ab350 gaming 3. Their website shows support for either Ultra-Fast PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 with PCIe NVMe & SATA mode support Edit: SSD is SATA. Wouldn't this only affect connectivity with the SSD? The HDD is what's not showing in the BIOS. Thanks again.
  6. Awesome thank you! I'll let you know how it goes. For some reason it detects my SSD, but not the HDD when the SSD is in. After going back to how it was, it still works. If you guys have any ideas on what I'm missing let me know, otherwise I'll probably figure it out soon.
  7. Hi! I just recently bought an SSD (M.2 WD Blue 500gb). For the longest time I've just focused on builds that have only used one hard drive, so adding a new storage device to me is unusual. I'm certain that I will know how to install it, but how would I go about transferring my OS (Windows 10) from my current hard drive to my new SSD. When I would search online, I would usually just come across installation guides that didn't say what to do afterwards. On a side note, is it possible to have a program like steam installed on my SSD with a few select games, but have a few games downloaded to the hard drive? Any info on this would be a great help Even just linking me to what I'm looking for would be enough. Thanks!

    New pc build trouble

    Essentially, bridge the + and - pins of the power pins to turn it on.

    Tips for remote troubleshooting

    Haha me too. When I build PC's for/with my friends I try to narrow my vocab to three words; Pins, wires, and connectors. Good luck

    New pc build trouble

    If your motherboard is powered, I believe that your case power button is fine. I misread that. If you need to power it, SupaKomputa is correct in saying you should short it (I also use a screwdriver). It may be helpful to pull up a manual if it's too hard for you to read the small text

    Tips for remote troubleshooting

    That could be. Whenever I have friends that ask for computer help from a long distance, I have them video chat with me. Maybe that's the best way to remotely troubleshoot here

    Tips for remote troubleshooting

    Is it possible that one of the drive connectors have loosened? I could understand that something like a loose cable could cause for a system to completely stop working, and then soon after (Perhaps someone bumps the computer), the cable bends the right way and connects. Personally, I had a Disk Read Error a while back, and the sata port on the mother board must just have been bad. I moved it to the next sata port and it worked fine.
  13. TracFone seems to show that ANY unlocked GSM phone (shown here) is compatible, but that seems like a stretch. I have searched online about it, but I have only seen one thing regarding comparability as a whole here, stating the only requirements are a GSM phone with a 850MHz or 1900MHz frequency, and a sim card, which the Honor 8x has. Considering that it's not exactly from a well known source though, I'd really only say that it's an assumption that my phone is compatible. Thanks for responding!
  14. Hi everyone. Just yesterday I got a new Honor 8x, and I thought it would be as simple as putting my (TracFone) sim card from my old phone (Honor 6x) in the new one. However, when I did this it showed that the card was detected, but it had no service. The phone is unlocked, and I usually have a strong 4G LTE signal where I live. Here is a list of things I have checked and done: *Make sure the sim card is active through TracFone *Confirm there is a known baseband version on the phone *Confirm there is a known IMEI of the phone *Rebooted the phone *Reseated the card *Confirmed the card works still on the old phone *Confirm that I am in an area of 4G LTE coverage *Confirmed that my carrier (TracFone) and my phone both use band 2 (4G LTE 1900MHz) * Tried a connection from different locations around my city After all of this, I decided to purchase a new TracFone sim kit to see if it would work. I attempted activating it with the "AT&T or GSM unlocked" card. I set it to transfer my old phone number, data, minutes, etc. I still have no luck, and this new sim card works in my old phone. Could anyone give any thoughts or help? Every time I contact TracFone's customer service, I'm hit with an hour of obvious troubleshooting just to hear them say, "Well, your sim card is active on our end, and you should have a strong signal. Please call 1-800-###-#### for more support with the code ######." I trust helpful strangers on the internet more than another hour of automated service. Thanks!

    Looking for Feedback on Parts List

    If I were you I would personally wait. I agree with Jurrunio that it makes more sense to start with the 2700x if you need it now. Since you're looking for something under $1000, I don't see any reason to buy a 9900k and $120 motherboard, just to pick up a Ryzen 9 3850x and another motherboard later. If you wait for Intel's answer, you might be waiting for a little longer than you wish.
