  1. How did you install the driver? Also why are you using 390.xx? 430.xx is the latest version. When I installed my driver I typed "sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300" into the terminal without quotes and after a reboot had a fully working and up to date Nvidia driver.
  2. Note: This tutorial was made for Manjaro and exact steps may differ slightly depending on your distribution. Installing Lutris Step 1: Open terminal and type sudo pacman -S lutris Installing Crysis Step 1: Run Lutris. Step 2: Search for Crysis using the search box in Lutris (Don't forget to click Search Lutris.net). Step 3: Click install and select the GOG version of the game. Step 4: Sign into your GOG account and continue with the installation until finished. You may get an error after the installation has completed but you can ignore it and click finish in the GOG installer. Post Crysis Installation Now it's time to configure crysis to run correctly. There are a few things we need to do to have the optimal experience. Step 1: Configure Crysis via Lutris by clicking on the gear under play on the right hand side. Step 2: Under "Game options" make sure the executable is Crysis.exe in the Bin64 folder. Step 3: In "Game options" add the line -dx10 to the arguments box to force the game to run in DX10 mode. Step 4: Under "Runner options" make sure you are using a compatible version of wine. I used lutris-4.13-x86_64. Step 5: Enable DXVK by ticking the "Enable DXVK" option under "Runner options" and select the latest version of DXVK. Step 6: With Crysis selected in your Lutris library scroll down on the right side and click "Winetricks". Step 7: When the Winetricks window pops up select "Select the default wineprefix" and click ok. Step 8: Select "Install a Windows DLL or component" and click ok. Step 9: When the list of components shows up look for "d3dcompiler_43" and "d3dx10_43". Step 10: Click ok and close Winetricks. Profit Assuming you didn't change anything else and have a properly installed game the game should now run perfectly in DX10 mode with no graphical issues such as broken shadows and water. Notes You absolutely need to check "d3dx10_43" or Crysis will not render correctly regardless of the version of Wine or DXVK you use. Many guides online don't have this information making DX10 mode not work. Also when launching the game you should change the launcher executable from the GOG launcher to the 64-Bit binary to ensure the game launches correctly into 64-Bit mode as it's more stable than 32-Bit. You should also be using the proprietary driver for your GPU. I have an Nvidia GPU and I'm using driver version 430.xx. To install the latest Nvidia driver under Manjaro simply run the following command sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300. Correctly rendered water
  3. In the end I just RMA'd the PSU. I know there's something wrong with it but there is no obvious sign.
  4. From what I've been able to gather the power output is good. I checked PS_ON and Power_OK and they both seem to be working fine. Might be internal to the PSU's protection circuit.
  5. I tried that to see if it was an issue with the PSU being loaded down and it worked but it's hit or miss. Sometimes it powers up and stays on and other times it powers off. I assume when it powers off there's some kind of a no load check or something but to my knowledge no ATX PSU does that.
  6. Yea I told him to check into that when he first told me he was having problems but I think he said it's out of warranty. I can double check.
  7. It's a Cooler Master V650 unit. It was supposed to be a rather high quality unit but I've had a V700 fail on me personally so I kinda question the quality of Cooler Master's PSU's. I don't think he has warranty anymore as the PSU is well over 5 years old at this point. Most likely I'll tell him to pick up a new PSU.
  8. It's a desktop. he has a Cooler Master V650 PSU.
  9. 1. yes I know a PSU is a complicated device. 2. I'm not doing my friend a disservice by "finding the problem and not moving forward". He asked me to take a look at it for him and I merely asked on this forum for some advice so i can better diagnose the issue. i already know it's 99.9% likely a bad PSU. How I can "move forward" is beyond me as I'm not actually being tasked with a repair here but whatever. 3. yes I'm aware it's likely an IC issue hence why i asked if anyone can elaborate further on the issue and maybe shed some light into what exactly the issue may be. Surely there's someone out there way more knowledgeable than you or me. 4. What are you even talking about? How is this question frustrating to you? I'm pretty sure I know what the problem is I just asked for some extra insight. If you're so frustrated then go to a different post.
  10. So I have a friend of mines PC at my house and hes asked me to take a look at it for him and see if I can figure out what the problem is. Known problems: 1. The system will only power on if it hasn't been powered with AC mains. 2. if the system powers off it won't power back on until you remove AC mains. 3. If the computer is turned on after being turned off it will power on for half a second then power off and not come back on until AC mains is removed. Things I checked: 1. CPU is known good. 2. GPU is known good. 3. Ram is known good. 4. Motherboard is known good. 5. Storage disks are known good. 6. Ran stress tests all night and they all passed. No power down during tests. 7. Cleaned PC. 8. Reseated all components. 9. Used another known good PSU and it works fine. I assume it's a bad PSU but I've never seen a PSU fail in this way before. the system can power on and it works fine when it does but it's only once the system turns off that it can't come back on. I'm not sure if some kind of protection is being tripped or something when it shouldn't be or what. Most likely it's a PSU issue but I'd like to know for sure before I tell him to buy a new PSU. Any ideas?
  11. Alright I'll do some research. Thanks.
  12. Yea but it's still not outputting correctly. While I can use this resolution one of the fields isn't showing up so while it thinks it's running in 480i@60hz it's actually displaying 480i@30Hz and one of the fields is missing so it's essentially 240p =(
  13. Yea the best input is component. Also I just plugged in the converter to my iGPU and I can output 1440x480i@60Hz but thats widescreen. I'm not sure why it's working but it is sorta.
  14. Yea I had the wrong text put in the fields but it's actually running at 640x480i@60Hz or at least that's what it's set to. Actual resolution being displayed is 240p though as one field isn't showing up.
  15. My converter only has a HDMI input. it had VGA and component output but can't be used in reverse. Also I think when I took that screenshot I was just messing around. I'm 99% sure the actual output is 640x480i@60Hz but shows up as 30. From what I can tell one field isn't being rendered to the display because it's running at 30Hz.
  16. I tried that and it can't sync.
  17. So I have an old tube TV in my bedroom that I normally use for retro gaming but I recently bought a HDMI to component/VGA converter box and it outputs whatever resolution you input to it but there's a problem and it doesn't natively show up a 480i as a selectable output the lowest is 800x600. I went into the Nvidia control panel and added a custom resolution where I set the resolution to 640x480 and selected interlaced output at 60Hz but Windows shows up as 30Hz and it looks like 240p instead of 480i. Anyone knows whats going on?
  18. I missed the livestream and both the twitch and youtube archives don't wanna play. Is there something wrong with the video?
  19. I think I have lm-sensors installed but idk how to use it. I just wanna monitor my system resources and hardware.
  20. I have a GTX 970. I mostly just want to monitor CPU usage, clock speed, memory usage and GPU usage. Normally I use task manager in Windows for that because it's simple and easy but when I want more detailed into I would use something Like AIDA64 but that doesn't exist on Linux to my knowledge.
  21. So I've recently started using Linux a lot more and I really enjoy it but one of the things I've found a hard time with is monitoring my system resources. Most of the built in applications such as the system monitor application in ubuntu just doesn't have enough information. I've been trying to find third party software but most of it either doesn't work, isn't easy to use or only uses the terminal and I'm really not down for that. I want to have graphs and other detailed information. Also I can't find any software to overclock my GPU in Linux either. To me knowledge there's no MSI afterburner for Linux.
  22. So for years the way disabling the iGPU has worked on my ASUS P8Z77-M Pro is under system agent selecting the primary GPU from iGPU to either PCIE or auto. Normally that disables the iGPU. I can't adjust the clock speed in AI Tweaker and plugging in a display does nothing but now for some reason my iGPU is stuck on and nothing will turn it off. Its eating up nearly 1GB of my system memory at all times and when I change the primary display from iGPU to anything else my Windows 10 refuses to boot. I can see the Windows boot animation and when it's done and is about to go to the login page I get nothing but a black screen and my keyboard doesn't power up. Honestly ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 i've been having these issues but going back really isn't an option for obvious reasons. Any ideas?
