  1. I've never heard of that tool. Do you have a link to it/any tutorials you recommend? I've tried that and the windows installer doesn't recognize a drive to install windows onto. Can't get past that screen
  2. That's what I've been doing between each setting change
  3. I've mostly messed around with secure boot, CSM, and the other boot options (fast boot, PXE OpROM) enabling, restarting, disabling, restarting, for each option I think might work as well as combinations of them all.
  4. I recently updated windows (normal update, nothing like going from windows 7 to 10 or anything) and something happened and the screen went black after booting up a few times, and then it booted in bios and doesn't recognize the boot drive. It didn't loose power or anything while updating. I've updated the bios, looked at all sorts of tutorials and manuals. All the settings I've tried changing don't amount to any progress. I'm hoping it's just a bios setting and nothing serious like the drive failed or the motherboard got messed up. I'll probably take it into a PC repair shop and have them run their diagnostics if I still can't get it to boot by the end of today. The notebook is an Asus UX360U
  5. Not sure if this is the right solution, but I enabled csm and it booted right up after saving the bios settings. ?? I'll keep checking back though cause I'm not too familiar with getting these settings right
  6. Struggling to find the settings to change that. Any idea where that is?
  7. I've got an Asus x570 tuf wifi Mobo with a R7 3700x. I just tried updating my bios to 1405. Everything went fine updating but now I'm stuck in bios. My two drives (500GB Samsung SSD boot drive and 5TB HDD) are recognized and show up in AHCI but won't show up in my boot settings. When I go to boot settings I also get an error saying "the system cannot find any bootable devices." I can still get in and see all my folders inside my drives, I just don't understand why it doesn't recognize my drives as bootable
  8. I should clarify, we're all mostly college students so I really shouldn't use the word family. The 4 families are 2 newly married couples, one family with 2 small kids, and one single mom with one small kid. So it's really 7 adults and not 4 typical size families. But I agree, that's too much for one access point. These apartments are pretty old and the internet only comes in at that one access point. Would it work to run a separate router out of the modem to each apartment or have one router for two apartments? Would you have to get a specific modem to handle extra routers? I think the modem he has right now is rated for 10 gigabits I'm also not sure how much my uncle(landlord) is willing to invest in extra access points because he might be selling soon. But I can still talk to him. There is an old coaxial cable under our air conditioning but I don't think it goes to anything working now.
  9. So, I've got a relatively harmless problem. Short story is: Our apartment's WiFi is shared by 4 apartments and it gets really slow sometimes and loses connection constantly. The router and modem are very high end and I suspect our neighbors with 5 Google devices are causing problems. Long story is: About a year ago my wife and I moved into these apartments her uncle owns. It's 4 apartments stacked 2x2 and we live in the top right. Our neighbors in the bottom left are the ones with the WiFi modem and router and the WiFi comes in in the very bottom left of their apartment, basically the furthest away from our apartment. The modem and router are both very high end and hypothetically should have no problem handling 4 small families at a time, however... Randomly through the day, wether it's while watching videos, scrolling social media, or working on homework, our devices will have a hard time communicating with the router for a few minutes. Not to mention loading times are terribly slow at full to 80% signal strength constantly. I've had to diagnose internet problems for the apartments multiple times, a few have been on the ISP side, but through it all my uncle gave me the login credentials to the router so I can better diagnose problems in the future. Our neighbors that have the router and modem in their apartment are not there most tech savvy. But they do have 5 Google devices. One Google home mini in every room and a TV (I can see them all in the Google Home app). On my Android phone I constantly get notifications about their speakers playing, casting, etc. I constantly hear a little devil on my shoulder telling me to turn them off when I see the notifications. My intuition says the constant upload and download the 5 Google devices produce are what's slowing down our router. I would have no problem approaching them about decreasing their Google home usage, but I'm not sure if they really are the culprit. I'm thinking of asking my uncle to run Ethernet cables to put the router closer to center of this problem persists, but I'm not sure if that would help either. I don't know if there's anything more I can do in our router settings. I've switched to the most open channels on 2.5 and 5 GHz and have reserved the Mac addresses for important devices. Let me know of any suggestions.
  10. I recently just built my first desktop and I'm super pleased with how it performs. 3700x, Asus Tuf x570, 2x8 G.Skill 3600mhz, and a 2070super. When I first boot up my system I only messed with the ram speeds and the FCLK so that they run in a 2:1 ratio. Other than that I haven't really messed with my bios settings a whole lot. If anyone has a similar setup I'm curious what configuration you recommend setting up in the bios. Mostly I'm just curious on fine tuning my system.
  11. Hmmm, that's good to know. I do plan on getting AMD's boot-kit if I do need to manually update the bios, but doing it in steps is kinda annoying. Do you recommend x470 over b450? As far I thought the biggest difference is sli support which I don't plan on doing
  12. I could see myself getting a lower end x570 as long as it's not above $200ish USD. But I did see immediately after I posted that the x470 Gaming Pro Carbon is down to $149.99 which is super tempting
  13. Planning on pulling the trigger on my first pc build in a few weeks and I feel I have most of my parts nailed down except for a motherboard. Maybe it's just me but there's just so many options and it's been a brain rattler to narrow it down to one board. I'm also not super knowledgeable about boards and retailer's spec pages don't really help. I've eyed the x370 Taichi, Prime x470 Pro, and the B450 Gaming Pro Carbon but those are the ones that have caught my eye and look good on paper but I don't have any experience with these boards. Anyways, give me some suggestions. Needs: Moderate overclocking of the 3700x Reliability ATX $150 USD +/- depending Wants: No bios updated needed unless board has bios flashback Looks good White-ish-- I'm trying to go for a black/white build Good I/O Wi-Fi RGB
  14. You know, I'm not too sure about Zen 2 till it's actually released and we can see what it really does. The prices aren't that great that I would buy one. But don't get me wrong, I'm hyped to see what AMD is doing and I'm hyped to see how Navi does. But this build probably won't happen till August
  15. Hey everyone, I'm currently a Landscape Architecture student with a few years left of undergrad and graduate school ahead of me. We use a wide range of programs from AutoCAD, Adobe Suite, Sketchup, Rhino, Lumion, Unity and Unreal Engine. The last two I'll be getting into this year with VR becoming a big part of our industry and being chosen to participate in a one week VR boot camp. I've been doing a lot of research in the past few months about these programs and what benefits them. From some programs favoring higher clock speeds, others favoring more cores, faster single thread performance, higher RAM speeds, and GPU's it's gotten a little confusing. I'll throw it out there I've never built a PC before but I feel I've gotten quite a good understanding. From understanding motherboard chipsets, vrms, nvme and m.2, etc. I've got a good understanding of everything that goes into a build. I guess the hardest part is picking the best hardware. I'm definitely open to any opinions you all have as I'm sure most of you have first hand experience with these programs how different hardware performs respectively. So please leave any recommendations down below. My goals for my build are: Budget CPU Cooler Motherboard RAM Storage GPU Case Power Supply Thanks for taking the time to read all of this! I'd love to hear any feed back or tips with the best hardware for these programs. Cheers
