  1. I got a similar message and reported it for pornography and spam, was removed in less than two minutes.
  2. Thanks for the tip, I looked at my benchmark scores and noticed that having +225 on the memory had a better score than +250 so I ran both a few times and compared their numbers. The +225 was basically better overall, I even saw a higher max core boost with +225 memory. Your right about MSI reporting better boost numbers, with the overclock at +225 on both I occasionally saw it boost up to 1946MHz and had a steady 1844MHz on the core.
  3. I decided to see what I could squeeze out of my Pny 1050ti I bought at the beginning of the year. I read up on overclocking with MSI Afterburner and read a few posts here on the forums about results on 1050ti's. http://a.co/1V3XGwE According to GPUZ the card clocks at... Base: 1291MHz Boost: 1392MHz Mem: 1752MHz Which is what is advertised. From what I saw getting 100MHz overclock was typical but my card reached a overclock of... Base: 1516MHz [+225] Boost: 1617MHz Mem: +250 (CPUZ does not show the overclock and the benchmark value is wrong on both base and oc'd) I bumped clocks by +25MHz each round and ran a 10 minute benchmark till I saw artifacting at +250 Base. I tried to get more than +225 but it would begin to stutter past it. Same for the memory clock. Is this a typical result? I feel like this is actually a pretty high overclock compared to what I read about the 1050ti. Most places I read reported +100MHz being the goal. Edit: Temps were steady maxed at 62c under load with the overclock.
  4. @Tosa Your suggestion fixed the shutdown on lid close, but not of the BIOS and USB Boot issues. Any other suggestions?
  5. The power button is on the side of the laptop so it can't be that. And I haven't changed the BIOS settings since I first got it, and all I did was disable secure boot then. One of the main reasons I wan't to install Windows is so I can use Dell's BIOS flash tool to update the BIOS. I can't seem to get my head around flashing it via usb. I'll try removing the two batteries and holding the power button. I'll report back in a bit.
  6. I changed it again after a second battery arrived and the issues still persist.
  7. I've already changed it, that's how I know it's not dead.
  8. The battery is not dead as stated in the post.
  9. The boot sequence is: HHD1 Ubuntu USB1 1 I'm selecting the USB from the boot menu, so how would I fix this?
  10. My Dell Inspiron 13 7348 is a few years old now (3 and 1/2) and has had a rough life being carried around for all my classes. Lately there have been a few issues that I have tried to get help with elsewhere but have had no luck... Shutting the lid turns the laptop off. I have used Ubuntu and Windows on this laptop for pretty much it's entire life yet all of a sudden when I shut the lid the computer just shuts down. I have run through a number of different troubleshooting tips from editing config files and testing if the lid switch is even recognized (it is) and nothing has helped. This has happened on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Solus. Uncommenting the lid switch actions and setting them to suspend in the file /etc/systemd/login.conf did not work. Setting the setting in the settings did not work. Testing systemctl suspend was a success. Thanks @Tosa I cannot boot from a Windows USB installer. I cannot boot from a Windows 10 USB installer on all three ports of the laptop. Selecting the USB drive(s) just continues on to booting Ubuntu. I used various different USB creation tools including Rufus, Media Creation Tool, and Universal USB Installer. I used both a 32GB PNY Flash drive and a Samsung 64GB drive and neither worked. I tried NTFS, FAT32, and Extended FAT format choices on Rufus. I tried both UEFI for GPT and MBR and non UEFI. (The system is UEFI GPT). Booting from Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Elementary OS work on both of the above flash drives. Secure Boot is off. BIOS settings are not saving. When trying to change from UEFI boot to Legacy (or trying to enable legacy boot options with UEFI) the settings do not save after I save and exit the BIOS. The CMOS battery is not dead. Any help on any of these issues would be greatly appreciated. The issues have gone on long enough now that I had to break down and buy a new laptop because these issues were getting in the way of work. The issues are listed in the order they appeared. I asked for help on Ask Ubuntu and got asked about if suspend worked. Never got a follow up. https://askubuntu.com/questions/994864/laptop-lid-close-not-suspending
  11. Update: The ASRock works great and my build came out pretty nice. Still not that great at cable management though.
  12. I bought the ASRock board last night after thinking about it awhile. Reviews on Newegg and Amazon were far more in favor of the ASRock board as well. My first build (- a new GPU, hello 750ti for now) should be completely finished next weekend.
  13. TLP is realy great, I can get battery life pretty comparable to Windows on normal power settings with it.
  14. http://linrunner.de/en/tlp/docs/tlp-linux-advanced-power-management.html It's a bunch of power optimizations, don't really know how to better describe it. Thermals should be better as well as battery life. sudo apt install tlp will install it
