  1. I'm a Nexus 5 user, and I'd advise you to buy it, the sheer benefits of a Google branded device and a reference android device makes it leaps and bounds ahead. All the complains you've basically ever heard are addressed and fixed by Lollipop. It's worth it bro. 

    Oh yeah, I always have 35% battery after using my phone moderately the whole day. That includes heavy texting and usual browsing. Anyways Lollipop has a battery saver built in, that provides an extra hour. I've also rooted, flashed a custom recovery, and also flashed franco.kernel; using that I've undervolted my CPU for even better battery life, and that doesn't cause any hiccups too! IMO, it's worth it. It should be a no-brainer at this point

  3. Ok I'm going to go to sleep, but reply to this thread and I will check it tomorrow.


    If the admin thing does not work.


    Basically what I'm going to try to get you to do is initialize the hard drive outside of windows, which means you got to download  Windows ISO's and burn them. 


    Basically I was going to get you to download this:




    or maybe did you buy your windows 8 online? Maybe download that again, make a usb. 


    We are not reinstalling windows, but when you use the bootable installation, it comes with it's own command prompt, that is disconnected from windows on your ssd. 


    So it starts with X: rather than C: 


    Hopefully this means, whatever is stopping it in windows in your actual installation, we can get past it using the cmd from the installation media. 


    Then hopefully find it, format it, essentially gift wrap it, so when you boot back into windows it's there all sorted out. 

    This. +1

    It should fix your problem, that is if it's OS related. :)

  4. I spent the next hour explaining to him that "My Computer" wasn't really his computer in a global aspect, but more a less a central hub for that specific computer.  I further went on to explain that "My Computer" was never really the best name for the physical computer, but more or less JUST "Computer". 

    I guess that's why they've renamed it to This PC in Windows 8.1  :P

  5. are gpu power connector connected at the top of gpu? or it might be that your psu cant handle the card?!

    Yes, I have the power connectors at the top and they're plugged in. No, I bought a new PSU. It's a CM 550W Elite. It's working fine at the moment with the old GFX card. 



    i think it might be that your motherboard or cpu isnt compatible with ur gpu i would test it in another pc if u have access to a friends or somethin

    Could it be? I don't know really.. I've never heard of that. My motherboard has PCI-E Gen 2 and the Card is Gen 3. But it's supposed to be fine and is backwards compatible. 

    I don't have another PC or a friend's PC around here :/

    EDIT: Nope. Motherboard and CPU are compatible. 

  6. So I bought a new R9 270 today and a new PSU along with it. I needed to upgrade my crappy system so I decided on this. It had an old GT 440 in it. Okay so I changed the PSU and gave it a test boot. It booted fine.

    Then I changed out the GPU with the new one and won't give any display, by that I mean it has a black screen, and doesn't do anything. It's a gigabyte R9 270 and I noticed when I turn it on the fans don't turn on that very moment, they take 5 seconds or so and then start to spin.


    My crappy PC

    CPU: i3-2120

    Motherboard: Intel DH61ww

    RAM: Some kingston 4GB @1333MHz

    I swapped out the card with the old one and everything worked. But when I swap in the new one the screen just stays black when I press the power button. I think I'm just being paranoid, but does this matter? The card below is the new one and atop is my old one. It has less of those shiny golden things on the

    PCI-E connector.


    I've tried connecting my card to the TV via HDMI.

    I've tried reseating the card several times.

    I've cleared the CMOS by taking out the cell from the motherboard for a few minutes and then putting it back in. And another thing, I use a dvi to vga converter to drive my display, as it's an oldie and the dvi port is faulty.
