    Show us a screenshot of the "Users" folder, that shouldn't be the case.

    Looking for a Laptop spec

    Welcome to the forums. Perhaps look into something like a Lenovo ThinkPad P52s or HP Zbook 15v G5 for that Quadro chip. It isn't the fanciest chip around, but should handle most entry to mid level workflows just fine.

    Chinese H81 motherboards and Haswell Refresh CPUs?

    Electrolytic capacitors? Really? I mean, it'll probably be fine (doubt they're good quality caps but whatever). But come on, even an ASUS board at the same price point has all solid state caps. I wouldn't expect these Chinese boards to last very long. I'll give it a year max before the caps all blow up.

    Why can smartTV do smart things like phone can?

    Why would you want your TV to have the same built in capabilities as your Smartphone? You're just going to control it using your phone anyways. It's much easier to control these video streaming and social media applications using your phone rather than fiddling with a remote.

    Overpriced Used Gaming PC?

    Listing got removed. That was fast. Just knowing that this entire Xeon build is being powered by the all mighty Best Buy inhouse Insignia branded PSU just puts my mind at ease. That build just screams quality.
  7. But dykes are useful.
  8. Many consumer laptops nowadays include a TPM device, yet Microsoft locks away the ability to use BitLocker for Pro and Enterprise versions of Windows. What's up with that Microsoft?    

    1. TopHatProductions115


      And then Windows Update throws a fit and won't work when using 3rd party encryption software (in addition to not letting you use BitLocker).

  9. BlueChinchillaEatingDorito


    When you expand Drive D, does it only give you the option to Turn on BitLocker?
  10. BlueChinchillaEatingDorito


    Open BitLocker Drive Encryption from the start menu. What do you see?

    Windows empty reinstall

    When asked where to install Windows, delete all partitions and create one new partition. Format, then install. If you like to go the Disk Partition route, in Command Prompt: diskpart list disk // Find the associated number for your target disk. For this example, we'll use 0 as that's the typical one. Will be different if your system has two drives installed select disk 0 clean create part pri select part 1 format fs=ntfs quick assign active exit

    What happened to the ChanelSuperFun ?

    No one on the team is leading the project so it's been placed on the shelf.
