  1. It's actually listed in BIOS as a bootable device though. It recognises it's name correctly and it's still avaible in boot priorities. Everytime I turn on my PC with the M.2 drive plugged in I get that warning prompt from the 1st picture. I didn't even know that BIOS could display drive durability warnings...
  2. As the title suggests, my NVME drive stopped booting overnight. Yesterday everything was fine, I shut down my PC like normal, turned the PSU off (I did that everyday before going to sleep) and everything seemed normal. Today I turned on my PC and was greeted with this BIOS prompt: After that I went into the BIOS and tried booting from the drive: My specs: Drive: Patriot Viper VPN100 1 TB PCIe NVME Motherboard: ASUS B450-F ROG STRIX I also tried resetting my BIOS settings and plugging the drive in my 2nd M.2 slot - same prompt. As I said earlier, I had this drive for ~~3 months and never had any problems with it. Read/write speeds were as advertised and the drive never gave off any warning signs. The drive is physically unchanged (no burn marks, connectors are clean and it even heats up when plugged in). Should I try doing something else or just RMA it on Monday?
  3. Whoah... Can not belive it was something that dumb... Took the card out, cleaned the PCI-E connectors with ethanol poped it back in and the card shows up as x16 in the BIOS and in GPU-Z. Must've messed something up when I was installing my NVME. HWinfo reports my GPU as x16 and M.2 as x4. Ironically it's in the top slot and works just fine, although I've had my fair share of troubles with this board. It had alot of weird quirks (not being able to shutdown/reboot properly) but after I flashed the newest bios (v3003) everything seems to be working just fine. Anyways, thanks to you all for your help!
  4. The one closest to the CPU (it's labeled PCIEX16_1 in the manual)
  5. Recently I've discovered that my graphics card is running in x8 PCI-E Lanes Mode. I'm afraid that this comes with a performance penalty. I have replaced my GPU thermal paste aprox. 1 month ago (because the card was hitting even 80*C under load). My specs are: CPU: Ryzen 5 2600X MOBO: Asus ROG Strix B450-F (newest bios) GPU: MSI RTX 2060 GAMING Z (with OC) STORAGE: 953GB Patriot Viper VPN100 M.2 NVME (x4) and 223GB INTEL SSDSC2BW240H6 (SATA) My latest userbenchmark run: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/23502893 (Yes, I know that userbenchmark is unreliable but it shows performance compared to other users) Ryzen 2nd gen supports 24 PCI-E gen3 Lanes (4 are used for chipset communication). In theory I should be able to get full bandwidth out of my GPU and NVME (x4 + x16). Is there something that I'm missing?
  6. I wanted to use Clonezilla to clone my old SDD onto my new M.2 drive. I selected beginner mode and chose my old drive as source and my new m2 as target. I chose to fix bad sectors and errors when I was prompt (I don't know why I did that, the disk was fine). After that it started doing something (screen filled with gibberish with ETA time and transfer rate mixed in) at that point I assumed that it started cloning/repairing so I gave it some time. After 10 minutes I saw that the ETA time has reached 10 hours. I thought that I messed up with the settings and wanted to try again. I stopped the process using CTRL+C and it resulted in kernel panic. At that point I wanted to boot with my old drive to check if it was still working. First two attempts resulted in BSODs (the code had someting to do with ntfs). After some more attempts I just started getting windows 0xc00000f error (Your PC/device needs to be repaired File: \WINDOWS\system32\winload.exe). It gives me three options 1. Try Again (screen flashes and shows the same message) 2. F8 For Startup Settings 3. F9 to use a different operating system (i can choose between Windows 10 and Windows 10 Home) Things I already tried: Startup Settings ==> Automatic Repair ==> Fail Command Prompt ==> chkdks /F /R on disk 0 results in "[...] This disk is write protected [...]" Command Prompt ==> bootrec /fixboot ; bootrec /scanos ; bootrec /RebuildBcd ==> Reboot and nothing changes Choose a different operating system ==> Windows 10 ==> back to the Recovery screen Choose a different operating system ==> Windows 10 Home ==> Gave me the same Recovery screen but when I went into Startup Settings and chose Auomatic repair it showed me the windows logo and Diagnozing your PC text under it. After that it asked me to choose the user, I selected my windows username and provided the password. It loads someting for a while and then says that it couldn't indetify the problem. Choose a different operating system ==> Windows 10 Home ==> Continue into windows ==> I get a black screen (the monitor is receving signal though) my mouse turns on and off in aprox. 9 sec intervals and the hard drive LED on my case shows disk usage (repeating patern), which suggests that it's in a loop My Goal: I'd like to be able to repair my windows installation. If that's not possible I'd atleast want to be able to access my files from that drive. Additional Info: My OS: Windows 10 Home ver. 1909 64bit BIOS reset to defaults
  7. I've been trying to connect two PCs together with an ethernet cable. What I mean by that is I'd like to be able to transfer files between them. I started by connecting them together with a crossover cable. After configurating their IP adresses Xubuntu showed up a ethernet connection but windows showed that I have no ethernet cables plugged in. Does anyone know how to setup a 2 machine file sharing network? I'm new to networking and I just don't know what to do.
  8. I had a Ryzen 5 2600x. It was a polish retailer but I heard the problem was worldwide (although I've seen alot of reviewers using that board without any problems). If the motherboard doesn't POST you should be able to return it (with the CPU).
  9. My first Ryzen build was also with a Gigabyte x470 Aorus Gaming 5 and belive me that mobo is a nightmare. When I finished building my PC everything was working perfectly. After exactly one week it stopped POSTing. If I remember correctly the CPU diagnose led was red and the DRAM led was flashing green. I returned all the parts (mobo, cpu, ram) and after two weeks the online store reached out to me that they concluded the CPU was broken and they replaced it. After that I thought it was all over so I built my PC again, but EXACTLY after a week the same thing happened. I returned everything and decided I would buy at a different store. After a while I bought the same RAM and CPU but with an Asus B450-F ROG Strix. Haven't had any issues since then. You should RMA your CPU and mobo. That board is just cursed.
