  1. Your default communication device is not the same as your default audio device. You can change this by opening Audio Control Panel (Win+R, enter control mmsys.cpl in Run), right clicking on the audio device you want to use, and selecting "Set as Default Device" and "Set as Default Communication Device".
  2. Nothing that I personally use, though I would probably say the Monoprice Blackbird 4K HDMI Audio Extractor. I can't imagine there would be much of a difference between the Monoprice and a ~$25 offering, however.
  3. You're likely looking for an HDMI Audio Extractor.
  4. It's not really "smart", it's just encountering a read error and throwing an unhandled exception. Since we're talking about bad sectors here, it is much more likely to encounter a read error on an impacted folder or file.
  5. If a file or folder is corrupted or inaccessible, Windows Explorer will likely stop copying and report that an unexpected error occurred.
  6. You can usually determine the value of an item by looking at eBay's listing history. Use the "Sold listing" filter in Advanced Search.
  7. Are you just looking for calculator to always be on top? Most applications do not natively support this, and you'll need to use something like NirSoft's WinLister.
  8. Try using DiskPart to format the drive, use this guide: https://www.howtogeek.com/235824/how-to-clean-a-flash-drive-sd-card-or-internal-drive-to-fix-partition-and-capacity-problems/
  9. $200 is not enough to buy anything new, not even Black Friday will help you here. The best I would be able to suggest is getting a used Optiplex XE2 SSF on eBay, try this search query. You can pair the XE2 with a GT 1030. Not the most powerful, but it's better than nothing.
  10. If you're just trying to make a USB device accessible over TCP/IP, take a look at USB/IP Project at http://usbip.sourceforge.net.
  11. Unless you power off the router while updating firmware, no.
  12. If PCPartPicker lists a motherboard as compatible, it means that the BIOS has been updated by the manufacturer: If PCPartPicker displays a potential compatibility issue, the some resellers may be selling boards with an older BIOS: B550 motherboards do not support G SKU CPUs. https://www.amd.com/en/chipsets/b550
  13. The uploader specifies that they use Matrox's TripleHead2Go. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrox_Graphics_eXpansion_Modules
  14. Yes The circle thing..? Do you mean your CPU cooler? If so, no. Your PCIe extension cable could be at fault here, but without further testing I assume that the graphics card is likely at fault.
