  1. It really depends on how you have been using it. The more reads and writes the more potential for wear.
  2. My only recommendation would be to unplug the system and hold down the power button for 20 seconds then reseat your ram. I once fixed a wired startup bug this way.
  3. Hmmm would make more sense on a hard drive but it is possible the SSD has a bad sector that messed up the windows install. Did you do a fresh install of windows or was the drive carried over from another machine with different components?
  4. Is your boot drive a hard drive by any chance. Possible that file got corrupted which is bugging out windows. Had a similar issue were a laptop with an old hardrive would give me an error message and shut down after an hour or so of use and tracked the problem down to a faulty drive.
  5. The best 3080 is whichever one you can get your hands on as long as stock stays virtually nonexistent.
  6. Found somebody on my local Facebook marketplace who apparently does not know they bought a Lenovo......... or maybe they just think all laptops are made by Dell. (It is a Lenovo Yoga)
  7. My point was not about retro gaming itself more that most people don’t tend to dig much deeper into the library than like halo, crimson skies etc (the basic stuff that doesn’t prohibit no reverted stick) so they probably don’t run into this problem. I feel for you though not having access to solder and such. You might be able to achieve similar results with tape and wire if you take your time and are carful. You can get a lot of small wires out of a standard Ethernet chord if you have an extra one of those around. Hope somebody else can chime in with a software level fix for you though.
  8. I doubt many people are playing a lot of OG Xbox games on original hardware these days so probably not a lot of demand for anybody to code a fix. It’s like you already said, probably the easiest solution is a modded controller.
  9. I feel for you. Stock shortages are still horrible. You might have to just go with a gaming laptop if you want a current GPU in a small form factor and can’t wait. Keep checking around periodically though you might be lucky and catch a restock at the right moment; kinda hard to beat the bots to the punch in most cases though.
  10. As a general rule you get increasingly diminishing returns when adding anything more than the usual two or three front intake fans and one rear exhaust fan. This is why recent cases usually ditch side panel and in many cases top fans.
