  1. It wasnt as easy as that but I got it done with both drives installed on the same motherboard.
  2. Hello all, Hoping someone can help me out. I bought a Samsung 970 Evo + and cloned it from my 960 Evo (both are M.2). The 970 + works fine now but I want to format and delete the 960 evo and put it back on the motherboard so I can use it. The problem is I cant connect both cause the computer will not boot, I think cause both drives have a OS on them. Is there a way to connect the drive and wipe it without me spending another 60 on a nvme external case to connect via usb to run a drive wipe?
  3. I went to go check in the bios and it was already set to enable on the quick boot. I did try the sign in to my microsoft account to relink for activation, it kept giving me "we cant activate windows right now, try again later. with an error code". which is why I called Microsoft. Windows is not the problem and has been activated.
  4. quick boot is enabled, I think by default.
  5. I did not reinstall windows, though i would love to have a fresh install of windows i have too much that I would have to redown load and install. If I absolutely have to I will do a freash install. I have have to call microsoft and get a new product key code cause windows would not activate on the new hardware.
  6. humm, not sure I turned it on when I posted and went into the bios. Will have to go check.
  7. Hello all, I just upgraded my rig and am having a very long boot time. I cant for the life of me figure out why. I upgraded from a i5 6600k, Asus Strix z290e gaming motherboard. The new parts are a i7 9700k, Asus Maximus XI hero (WiFi), and a new GPU which is a Asus ROG Strix rtx 2070 OC. I did not use a new boot drive, which is a Samsung SSD m.2 960 evo, I just took it off the old board and put it on the new board after I posted and went into the bios to set a few things. I powered off then put the ssd on the new board. Also I had to put the GPU in the second pci slot due to a shorter than I thought pci extension cable. I made a custom desk and inlay-ed the computer parts under glass in my desk and measured wrong. On the new motherboard is the second pci slot x16 or x8? any advise would be appreciated.
  8. I recently bought the Asus Claymore keyboard and I have the Asus z270e gaming motherboard. The claymore is supposed to be able to boot up by pressing fn+enter or long press enter (have done both). I have gotten the keyboard to do the fan function (turn speed of fan up or down) there are a few more functions that are cool but already have set in the bios. If my motherboard is able I would like to be able to boot up my computer with the keyboard. what am I missing, is it a bios setting, armoury setting, what? thanks for any help.

    was wondering, Is there anyway to take a laptop screen out of a laptop and use it as a monitor for a desktop. I play DCS (A10c) and am wanting to get 2 MFD's and make them fully functioning. I just didn't know if there was a way to make a laptop screen work and what it would take, wiring wise or if it was possible. Thanks
  11. I am going to want to get 2 of these to put 1 into my son's room for his ps4 and computer and one for my desk to run my computer, ps4, dish network box and wifi. I really only want the wifi and not the ports on the wifi router. I only use the wifi for my phones and tablets.
  12. what is link aggregation?
  13. ok what about easy smart or unmanaged?
  14. Hello All, I'm looking at getting a Ethernet switch. I bought my own modem and I'm giving xfinity their crap back. I just need to know If I need a 10/100 or a 10/100/1000. I do get good speeds with xfinity just not sure if a gigabit Ethernet switch is too much or not. Thanks for your help.
  15. I have not had any issues with windows 10 yet, and I really like it better than 8.1 pro.
