  1. I will have to wait for tomorrow night to complete the removal so I won't post till then.
  2. What is the best way to do this without removing the CMOS battery? To remove the CMOS battery requires taking almost everything out of the laptop case.
  3. To start off with, I apologize if this needs to go into a different forum. I have a Dell Inspiron 15-3552 with 4gb RAM. I decided to upgrade the memory from 4 gb to 8 gb. The original memory: 4gb DDR3 (came with the computer, single stick) The new memory: Pacific Sun 8gb PC3-12800 (1600MHz) DDR3. The laptop detects that the amount of memory has changed, however in the bios (and control panel) it still only shows 4 gb of memory. There is no apparent way to change it from the bios which is running 4.4.0 (the latest version). Pacific Sun was told about the issue and claimed that the new memory "should work." Computer OS: windows 10, 64 bit Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
  4. A mild amount of gaming, day to day use of multitasking and 3d designing.
  5. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=610eaca0-a920-443c-93ff-a58b99efcb75 Here is the updated build with corsair vengeance (non RGB) memory at 3200. I chose the MSI board because it has 2 PCI ports.
  6. There is a microcenter in my area. This is the build I am looking at now. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=610eaca0-a920-443c-93ff-a58b99efcb75 Thanks for all the advice and opinions!
  7. I am only focused on the computer itself. I already have a mouse, keyboard, and monitor, and headset. The memory I found on microcenter can be found here: https://www.microcenter.com/product/607433/crucial-ballistix-sport-lt-16gb-(2-x-8gb)-ddr4-3200-pc4-25600-cl16-dual-channel-desktop-memory-kit-bls2k8g4d32aesb---gray I would be ok with changing the board as long as it is priced well and has features/upgrades that the current one lacks.
  8. I am looking for a $600ish pc build with a larger focus on the processor then a traditional gaming build. I will also be buying from microcenter so the prices may change a bit. Any advice would. be greatly appreciated.
