  1. Check the community (the game's and the NexusMods one) to see if the MODS you are thinking of adding have any conflicts with the Witcher 3 patches. Some MODS are not reversible even if you roll back to a previous save-point. And you may have to install the game again from your back-up. Which brings me to 'back-up' your game before installing any MODS, so you do not have to purchase the game again (worst case scenario). Fallout has its own community that does bug fixes and they say that they are compatible with some MODS and not others, so perhaps look for a Witcher 3 community that does a
  2. Get in touch with the manufacturer of your pre-built system, you probably should have tried using their how to guides for enabling a PC reset. Aside from that you could try downloading a Windows 10 image (ISO) from Microsoft and starting a clean install yourself. Nb. Where is the information about your PC in the post you made (below), should we guess the specs?
  3. That depends on what an individual would consider an expense worth spending their money on. My machine was built around the Intel 5960X chip, and at that time a monitor that could be driven by it cost silly amounts of money. So I waited until the RTX card arrived and now I can afford a decent monitor. The machine is more than capable of supporting a 27" IPS monitor at 144Hz (165Hz OC), admittedly the resolution is only 2560 x 1440 and is only 2K (QHD) not 4K 3840 x 2160 UHD. But then I consider the cost of a 55" or 65" 4K OLED UHD TV to be equal to the value of a car!
  4. Hi @WoodyWoo A secure erase feature is a program that your SSD manufacturer recommends to permanently delete sensitive data without compromising the functionality of the SSD. Here is an example, the Toshiba OCZ utility can be used when Windows is running, although some functions require the drive to turn off i.e. reboot, for example, updating the SSD’s firmware. There is also a program that will run from a USB stick once you create it and make that USB the boot device.

  5. Darik's Boot And Nuke (DBAN) PROs Will wipe a drive completely of all its data and you WILL NOT be able to recover it! It uses military process so the process can not be reverse engineered CONs Will take literally hours if not DAYS to perform a complete sterilisation The long process causes a heat build up and can damage the small chips on SSDs Links How...to use DBAN Darik's Boot and Nuke ...other FREE data destruction software programs
  6. Hi @SPOOKLEZ_YT As @LunaP0n3 said, you will need to create an image of your entire PC that is on the HDD in your laptop, when you buy a new SSD ensure that it is bigger than the old HDD. If your laptop has a DVD drive and you fell comfortable about it, you could use the data and power cables that go to the DVD drive and connect in the new SSD there. You still need to put the new drive into the machine where the old drive was so that it boots from that device, though. I have tried using Minitool Partition Wizard, but have found that the Acronis product has better support
  7. One of these heat-sink's that are marketed for Raspberry Pi's main processor or graphics chip which are stuck on with thermal transfer tape, might work, or if they are too big something similar?
  8. Looks okay, but what is cooling the VRAM and VRM on the board now after you removed the heat-sink? Maybe, add some heat-sinks on each one and a fan to circulate some air over them?
  9. Hi @Chiyawa, It looks like Alphacool does offer an AIO for these Vega 64s; GIGABYTE Radeon RX Vega 64 Watercooling 8G 8GB HBM2 (GV-RXVEGA64X W-8GD-B) GIGABYTE Radeon RX Vega 64 Silver 8G 8GB HBM2 (GV-RXVEGA64SIL-8GD-B) GIGABYTE Radeon RX Vega 64 8G 8GB HBM2 (GV-RXVEGA64-8GD-B) GIGABYTE Radeon RX Vega 56 8G 8GB HBM2 (GV-RXVEGA56-8GD-B) Gigabyte Radeon RX Vega 64 Gaming OC 8G,8GB HBM2,3x HDMI, 3x DP (GV-RXVEGA64GAMING OC-8GD) You will need to know what the reference design number is for your particular GPU, try using the Microsoft DirectX diagnostic to
  10. Hey @ZWELINHTET Your Zen 2 (Matisse) CPU does support DDR4 up to 3200MHz, and the AMD X570 Aorus motherboard memory support list does also show support for 32GB RAM density DIMMs. However, the Crucial branded memory on the memory support list only runs at 2666MHz. So, you may find that the 3200MHz speed of the Corsair DDR4 branded memory may not be achievable without a supported BIOS update. If there is support for the Corsair Vengeance DIMMs, and I suspect that there is, buy a matched pair and insert them into the same coloured slots, for example, DDR4_A2 and DDR4_B2 to en
  11. Hi @Lelouch Lamperouge You may need to match the RAM stick you have EXACTLY with the one you are buying. If you do not the clock speed (2400MHz) will default to the slowest RAM stick. Alternatively, you could buy a cheap 4GB stick now, and flip the HyperX stick while the price is high. Then purchase a 16GB, matched pair in a different, more affordable brand. hope this helps
  12. Hi @keenhydra Unless you have not updated your graphics driver for quite a while and you were only upgrading to a better Nvidia GPU, then you would not need to install any new drivers. However, you are changing GPU architecture so you will need to uninstall your AMD driver in SAFE mode using DDU and then install the latest Nvidia driver. Use this tutorial, and FOLLOW Wagnardsoft's instructions closely...here-> Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) Tutorial/Guide hope this helps
  13. Hi @Valley_ Create a backup image of your entire PC that is on the 12GB SSD, then, recover / restore that system image (the backup) onto your newer bigger drive, effectively that is a clone of the original PC image. You can download a free trial of Acronis's true image and use it for thirty days -click here- There are plenty of instructions on their website on how to use their software, for example, back up entire computer -click here- and then how to restore files using Acronis -click here-
  14. You need to copy your Windows install onto another larger drive and once the OS is working then you could delete / wipe the drive and use it for storage, but not the other way around. Alternatively, you could move the bulk of your data i.e. files and folders to another type of media like a CD, DVD or USB drive, and if you could reduce the actual used portion of the drive to less than that of the new SSD, in theory, you could move the OS and your installed applications there. Ideally you should have free space on the drive that you are using for the OS of at least the amount of RAM yo
  15. You would need to RE-install them all, not transfer them.
