    Due to concerns around the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we've made the difficult decision to cancel LTX 2020.

     

    We're sorry we weren't able to move forward, and also that we've taken so long to communicate with our community about it. The truth is, we've kept all our deposits and bookings in place because we've been hoping that some kind of miracle would take place that would allow us to move forward. It probably wasn't realistic, but after how much fun we had last year, we didn't want to let everyone down.

     

    At this point, all we can do is make sure that if you purchased a ticket for LTX 2020 you’ll receive a full refund. If you have purchased a ticket for LTX expect to receive a refund confirmation email within the next few weeks, you will automatically be provided with a full refund on the card that was used for your purchase. 

     

    To be clear, though, this is not the end. We will be doing everything in our power to bring back LTX for 2021 and we are already working on event dates.

    We also still want to do something this year, to make it up to you (and ourselves). We just need a bit more time before we can announce anything, so make sure you're keeping an eye on the LTX blog.

     

    Again, we're sorry. We hope to see you next year instead

    @CPotter Can you just keep my refund? I would like to donate it to help offset what you all will lose. I understand why LTX is being cancelled. It still sucks, since we have been looking forward to it since last year was so amazing. I want to do something to help. I know 2021 will be amazing.  I know this has been such a stressfully decision and I understand why you all waited so long. We all held out hope that this would all go away and we would all get to celebrate together. ❤️


  2. Hey guys, it's me again. Lol. 

     

    I got a new GPU and installed it today. Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 Super. I also upgraded my CPU to a Corsair 650w. After installing everything my PC will not post. The post code I'm getting is -... I do not have a code screen just beeps. According to post manual it is conventional extended memory failure.

     

    So far I have: reseated my ram just to make sure I didn't bump it. Tried ram from a different computer. Tried different slots. It is currently in slots 2 and 4. My ram is 16gb. I'm not sure what else to do and I am losing my mind.


  3. I am blessed to work from home with Amazon. We are required to take on more hours starting this week. It has been hard to work the part time hours I had so full time is going to be fun. I know I should just be thankful I still have my job but with everything going on sometimes it is hard to just get out of bed. The only reason I did today was to play with friends online. The LTT Discord is quite active. You guys should join if you haven't already. This invite expires in 1 day: https://discord.gg/QGXYPF It helps to talk with my friends. I don't know what I would do without this community honestly. 


  4. It has definitely kicked my OCD, ADD, and Depression into overdrive. I try to stay away from watching news or reading too many articles about it. There have been a lot of self inflicted deaths in my hometown because of it. I think it is important that we stay in contact with each other and be there for everyone who may be struggling. I have to go to the grocery store today and I admit I am panicking a bit about going out into public. 


  5. Just wanted to check on my forum peeps and see how everyone is doing with everything. It has been a bit lonely for myself. Haven't seen my family since February. Had a crappy birthday at the end of March. Thankful for my health but ready for everything to go back to normal. Funny thing is, I social distanced before it was cool. Not too much has changed other than not seeing my family at least once a week. I went outside today for some sun and fresh air. That helped a smidge. Other than that I've been pretty depressed. What are you all doing to stay sane? I've blogged, played video games, upgraded my computer, and started a new anime series. Hope everyone else is doing well! 


  6. We are also mostly introverts. We quarantined before quarantine was cool. I have not booked my airfare. I have been tempted to because it has dropped almost 1,000$ for me and my crew. Haven't booked a hotel yet either. Keep educating people to stay the F home and wash their hands. I can promise you that LMG cares more about it's community than the bottom line. They will make a decision when the time is right and they have more information. Stay safe everyone!!!

    Just to confirm, did you attempt to boot using the old CPU without the CMOS battery?

     

    Also, when you say that the computer won't boot, it the issue that you are not getting a video signal or is there an error message present while trying to load into the OS/BIOS?

    No video signal.

    In case that you did end up damaging the old processor, try another AM4 CPU that you may have, or purchase one to use temporarily in order to get the BIOS updated before swapping out with your new processor. I would highly recommend watching an installation tutorial before starting to install another CPU of this socket type.

     

     

    Link to a new AMD A6-8570E on eBay with the AM4 socket type:    https://www.ebay.com/itm/AMD-PRO-A6-8570E-AD857BAHM23AB-Socket-AM4-3-GHZ-DUAL-CORE-35W/283811775061?hash=item4214800255%3Ag%3AW7sAAOSwA6heaT1s&LH_BIN=1

     

     

    I've installed a few Ryzen CPUs before in new systems. It was the old CPU stuck to the heatsink, that damaged it. I did try a Ryzen 7 CPU of same gen, it didn't work.

     

    I tried the old alcohol trick provided by Crossfire and now the heatsink and GPU have power but not booting.

    I got a new Ryzen 5 3600x to replace my Ryzen 3. I am sleep deprived and did not update the bios before I uograded. Now the old CPU will not work. My motherboard is a tuf gaming b450m mini ATX. I am very upset. I don't know how to fix this. When I put the old CPU back in the motherboard has power but the GPU and CPU don't. When I took the old CPU out it was stuck to the cooler and I may have damaged it. It has all the pins but one tiny section is dark.
