  1. They're from when I booted after using windows' built in audio troubleshooter. Uptime lines up almost perfectly. EDIT sorry quoting
  2. Also, strange update, devices are detected in Device manager, and show they are working properly, but have a "Device not configured" error in their events tab. Every device has a similar error, just with different device codes.
  3. Media creation tool. Was concerned about the install being dead and didn't want to use a possibly bad recovery mode, so downloaded MCT.
  4. Yeah I've tried reinstalling the drivers. The irony is, Focusrite can see it too:
  5. Relevant hardware: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (Gen2) Asus Tuf X570 Pro Ryzen 9 3900XT Hey all, Puzzling one here: Audio was working normally, restarted to get rid of the update nagging. Update failed. Rebooted, noticed windows had a weird mute icon. It wasn't a mute icon. (Ignore the lack of a network connection, unrelated DNS issue) Windows now thinks that I don't have any audio devices. Sound > Playback shows nothing: Windows 10 settings menu also shows nothing: BUT IN DEVICE MANAGER THE
  6. First check the Users tab of Task manager, to make sure there's no remote access causing issues. (Small chance but easy to check) You should only see your user account or the accounts that you intentionally have logged in. Instead of opening up task manager, check resource monitor's CPU tab. (open from windows menu) See if that gives you a more accurate representation of what's going on.
  7. Not gonna lie, I don't trust the Tool-less ones. If I find them in place at an office or similar, I either replace them with double-female keystones or traditional punchdown ones. *EDIT* I just saw that this was the problem Glad we could help and welcome to the forum!!
  8. Hey! So you're correct in your assumption that it shouldn't be a crossover connection. You want straight through of T568-B to B, which you have done correctly. The thing I would be asking first would be about the keystone jack in the office. Usually punchdown tools cut the cable ends off so the cap fits over them without bare wire sticking out, but it looks like you've got a lot left over. So I'd make sure the tool pushed the wires down far enough that the keystone slots cut through the plastic around the actual copper. What device are you using to check connectivity si
  9. Curry's is a real site, and apparently they have 3080s in store.

    40-50 C idle temps are actually pretty good! As long as load temps don't go over 80C I'd say you're good to go! Also, welcome to the forums!
  11. It looks like you're in airplane mode..? I'd click the little plane to see if that helps.
  12. If you actually want 4k@144hz, the best card you can afford. This PCMag article ought to give you an idea: https://www.pcmag.com/news/ultimate-pc-gaming-what-does-it-take-to-play-at-4k-and-144hz
  13. Again, servers are meant to have the OS installed via IPMI. for HP, it's called HP iLO. Your BIOS settings should have options to set a management port and enable iLO (integrated lights out), then you can log into the IP of that device via a program or (usually) a webpage. From there you can manage the server much easier.
  14. Then use IPMI. You can manage the server via a webpage with it's local IP address, if your motherboard has IPMI
