  1. I'm looking for some sort of solution where I have a desk lamp that's smart bulb changes based off of what happens on my computer. Here's a few scenarios: 1. I'm in a meeting via google meets, slack video etc, therefore the bulb changes to RED 2. I'm loading up a full screen application (i.e a game), therefore the bulb changes to BLUE 3. I lock my computer, therefore the bulb turns off. 4. I'm watching something on YouTube, therefore the bulb changes to GREEN 5. In all other situations, the bulb changes to WHITE. Now, I understand that in order to scrape what activity I'm performing via web browser tabs as well as via other desktop applications (Games for example), I would potentially need a desktop application to either control this, and set up these configuration options OR some sort of desktop application that I can control via hotkeys to switch the bulb to X colour, or a remote to change it to X colour. Obviously the latter is the easiest option but it's also the most manual. The first solution (desktop app with a profile of changing colour based off of activity within Chrome, as well as via games), is what I really want. Does anyone know of a way to achieve this? I've heard of Skype For Business containing integration capability with some sort of Smart LED that sits onto of a desktop monitor which is based off of your status/presence on the app (i.e if you're in a call on skype, it sets it to busy etc), but maybe something like this? Also, I know that iCUE via corsair changes my K68 Keyboard LEDs based off of what I'm doing already. (For example, when playing Division 2, the colours change to match divison 2's colour scheme.) Thanks all!
  2. *** SOLUTION FOUND *** I'm going round the threads associated with this to give the information that I've been collecting over the last 3 weeks whilst experiencing the same exact problem. I started with an EVGA RTX 2080 Ti Black Edition which then artifacted (faulty GDDR6 Ram Modules from Micron), and then replaced with the exact same card, except this time it failed with a black screen and 100% fan usage. Thinking its the GPU again, I got a replacement RTX 2080 Ti except this time it was the MSI RTX 2080 Ti Ventus GP OC (factory overclocked version of the gp basically). Immediately presented with the same problem. Sometimes I can't even post, sometimes I can get to login screen on windows and it then crashes the second I try to type my pin in, sometimes It loads but with windows default drivers then crashes when NVIDIA's drivers are loaded, and finally sometimes it crashes when loading up ANY game. The common problem here is NOT the graphics card in my case. It was the POWER DELIVERY. I traced the cables to the PSU and noticed the 8 pin connector wasn't fully snapped into the Corsair 550W Bronze semi modular PSU. After pushing this all the way in, it clicked and everything went back to normal and started working. A few things to note here - the machine was a prebuilt but was brand new, as well as all the GPU's used. Whenever the GPU ramped up in power usage, it cut off and got a black screen, with 100% fan usage that can't be fixed unless you reboot via power button holding or flicking the psu switch. IF this is not your problem, and you have even tried swapping out your PSU then your GPU is actually to blame here. As others have posted, either get a new GPU which comes repasted, or repaste the GPU yourself. For me, multiple new GPUs did not fix this problem. The OP here states he's tried everything, however I've seen people saying that despite the GPU wasn't overheating, re-pasting fixed the problem? Maybe give that a try? Good luck all!
