  1. I just installed a 256gb Silicon Power 2280 SSD into my B450 Aorus M motherboard. I went into the tool I planned to use to transfer the OS, but it was not there. Checked the BIOS, not there. Thought maybe I didn't get in far enough, reinstalled what seemed a perfect fit, nothing. I've tried booting it in NVME Raid mode with no success. This installation is crucial as my HDD will fail over the next few days, based on the grinding, speeds, and crashes. Thank you for reading, anything is appreciated.
  2. Thank you all for your help. My issue has been fixed. As mentioned above, I turned off my pc, swtiched the BIOS switch on my GPU, watched my pc die before my eyes upon boot up, retried with original BIOS to meet a permanent black screen. I switched the back to fried BIOS out of curiosity, was met an intense increase in outtake fan speed (so much so that I felt it at a perpindicular angle to the flow), and the system booted up just fine. Everything works now. Honestly suspicious this happens after immediately after telling the seller about the issue. Anyways thanks for the help everyone have a good life!
  3. @GreyestGoat The GPU is an RX570. I switched to the second BIOS and it booted up all deep fried rainbow pixilated. Turned it off, switched back to original, and now it's on a long black screen upon bootup.
  4. @The_russian Your link did not post, but you have me excited! Yes, and now that you say that I'm sure the seller was mining. He had pictures of 10 of these in a home.
  5. @Eigenvektor The German page threw me off for a sec but I think this may help. I was using the 20.4.2 version
  6. Thanks @Eigenvektor & @The_russian, I forget to mention that. I used DDU in safe mode to uninstall both GPU drivers, booted back into normal mode, and installed the drivers. Same error.
  7. Today I built my first pc. I switched from Nvidia to AMD (RX570/Ryzen 5 160AF), but used my old HDD for the build. The Nvidia drivers were still on the HDD when I attempted to download the new Radeon Drivers. When opening Radeon software, I get an error message "No AMD graphics driver is installed, or the AMD driver is not functioning properly. Please install the AMD driver appropriate for your device. In device manager, my GPU has a red triangle and it's description reads "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". Getting really tired of trying to get this to work, so thank you very much for any help.

  9. So I have a pair of hyperx headphones with an aux running from the headset and plugging into a small control box, where it leads to a usb. The aux cord has been cut. I think I could fix it if I still had the reset of the aux, but I don't. It's got more wires than other aux cords Ive seen too. One black, with two cords inside, metalic red and metalic gold. The other, white, has three inside: metalic red and geen, metalic blue, and metalic green. Anyone know how to make this work? I can solder and heat shrink wrap it. Idc if the box controls dont work, the audio is all that matters. Thank you for reading!
  10. This monitor is great, but the right side has a semi transparent black bar. I was hoping someone would know how I could fix it myself or at least how much it would cost to get fixed by a pro. Thank you very much!
  11. I checked and it is a conductive paste. If I apply it right this time should I expect permanent damage or might I be all good?
  12. I applied new to the CPU. Didn't think to clean the thermal compound off of the heat sink. I guess I figured it it was working for the last chip that old grease wouldn't hurt.
  13. So yesterday I attempted my first installation of a CPU. I made sure everything was compatable, updated my BIOS, and swapped the cpus.During bootup, the leds and fans came on for about 5 secs and the screen showed the windows spinning loading dots screen. Then everything turned off suddenly. I haven't attempted to run it since. Where might have I gone wrong and what can I do to fix it?
