  1. awesome. i've been hanging out in the thread to get the in-thread notification. but i'll head out now. just reply to me so i can find the thread again.
  2. correct. it shouldn't detect the stick at all if it's dead. i'd see if a slot change helps. be sure to stagger the slots, as that's how most of the dual channels are set up. if this doesn't help i'd get the latest BIOS version 7B89vAD. are you sure that's the version you're running? link for reference: https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B450M-MORTAR-TITANIUM#down-bios
  3. under SLOT#1 and SLOT#2 what does it show? you can swap the sticks to the other two slots and see if that fixes the issue. you may have a dead slot. you can swap the sticks and see if the problem stick is an issue in the other slot. you may have a dead stick. you can update the BIOS, you may have a BIOS issue. (this is rather unlikely.)
  4. task manager shows slots used 2 of 4? if OS tools detect all of your RAM your BIOS may just have an error reporting, in which case you can either ignore it, or update the BIOS.
  5. i have pulled off some super crusty and crumbly paste before. A day isn't going to hurt the paste much, but you should be worried about open air contaminants like animal hair and similar dust balls getting in your paste and getting stuck. I'd just wipe off the paste and reapply in the morning. just wipe it with some alcohol and paper towels/ cotton balls and put new paste on the CPU. (if you use cotton balls make sure you don't leave any cotton strands)
  6. i'd try to wipe the USB tool and set it up again. something is funky. try another distro of linux and see if you have the same issues? is the disk healthy?
  7. 1: take canned air. 2: flip can upside down 3: spray air on to heatsink/fan area. 4: ???? 5: PROFIT!!!
  8. every operating system needs a partition. your disc needs to be partitioned and formatted in a file system that linux will accept. (like ex-FAT)
  9. so you have a bootable USB, you're deleted the target SSD/HDD's partitions, and you'd unable to install the OS onto the target drive because it can't create a root directory?
  10. if you have a USB, you can download the Win10 media installation tool at this link https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 download the tool, and go through the prompts to make a bootable USB. once you have a bootable USB plug it in and select the USB as your boot device in your BIOS. then go through the prompts to delete your old partitions and start the OS installation.
  11. do you care about your data? do you have a 8GB USB drive?
  12. did you delete all of the old partitions first? what format are you trying to give it? ex-FAT? see the above post too.
  13. boot to BIOS and see if the Disk is recognized in the BIOS. if it's not the drive is probably dead. if it is in the BIOS, and it might be if you get startup recovery, then you may have issues with your boot table, or your drive letters are messed up. i've seen it happen recently after newer windows updates, but normally it only happens to systems with multiple drives. if you don't care about your data you can just reinstall windows on the drive. you might want to check the drive's SMART info to see if it's healthy though.
  14. is your tv set to the right input? it should work fine enough
  15. if the boot LED is greed you should be good to go. i think you might have a display cable and monitor issue then.
  16. is your 4-8 pin CPU power cable connected? i can't see from the .mov
  17. so, it's a boot LED? are you sure? you should get through POST and into the BIOS even with no bootable drive. do you have a spare SATA drive? it must be a CPU, RAM, VGA issue. boot is the last thing checked. i'd pull out all of the drives to see if the LEDs change, and then try a spare SATA drive to see if it will let you into the BIOS. it might be worthwhile to update the BIOS if you can get it to boot. also, if it's a VGA issue and you're running a PCI-e 4.0 GPU, you may need to slot an older GPU and switch your PCI-e mode to 3.0 in the BIOS. do you have a spare older GP
  18. yeah, I went and did some more reading. sorry.
  19. check the documentation on your motherboard and see if that model number of RAM is supported. i'd say you might be looking for different RAM soon.
  20. thttps://www.lenovo.com/us/en/desktops-and-all-in-ones/legion-desktops/legion-t-series-towers/Lenovo-Legion-T530-Intel/p/99LE9500311 The product page in english shows a 500W PSU. open the case and check the side of the PSU. remove it if you have to. it MUST be labeled.
  21. Do you see #18? at the top right? what color are those LEDs when you try to POST/Boot? these are Q-LED diagnostic lights. it's important to see which light is lit too.
  22. so your RAM sticks speeds are mismatched? are you mismatching ECC and non-ECC?
  23. these are the only things i'd work on replacing/upgrading/changing soon. your GPU needs an upgrade bad if you plan on playing anything newer. your 2TB HDD is okay for long term storage, but i'd get an NVMe m.2 SSD for your OS. even a 256gb just for the OS would be much nicer. you can still use the 2TB for storage. just move your windows install off of it.
  24. is your bios set to UEFI? do you know if your boot flags on your drives are right? are your drive letters right on your partitions? i recently ran into a computer that had multiple SSDs and after an update all of the partitions got drive letters when they shouldn't have. C: became F: and windows became unbootable.
