  1. So i digged up some stuff on how I can do that and did the following: 1: Reset 2: Change LAN IP to 3. Turned off DHCP (there were three tick boxes, not a single button) what happened was that the router seems to crash. cant access the admin page, cant even connect because the IP seems to not be discoverable I think I will dig up another router that I have in a box somewhere and try with that and maybe I'll have better luck
  2. I've heard a lot of terms thrown around while looking into this but seems to be that I'm out of my depth here with networking. (not my specialty) I have two Huawei routers. One spare from an old connection (HG8246H), and another that was set up for our wifi last week (HG8245W5). My updstairs roommates can't access the wifi so I'm trying to use the spare to set up an Access point for them with an ethernet cable. Could someone offer some help? Edit: The main issue seems to be that the WAN page doesnt show me anything and doesnt offer any options to create either
  3. Update, i goofed. There is display, but its just not going through my Displayport, when I used HDMI to another monitor, I'm getting a display output. But the same BSD error, nothing changed except gpu not outputting to DP. Going to reset now using installation media and see what happens
  4. Would flashing the bios be of any help here?
  5. How would I go about this? Edit: Fortunately, I keep backups and nothing vital at all is on my primary drive. Would my other drives be needing cleaning as well though?
  6. Hey guys, I messed up. I got a software to repair my pc like delete junk files, defragment the disks, malware detection, driver updates etc. Though, when I restarted after this, it gave me a nice BSD. Error Code: Inaccessible Boot Drive I tried everything I could find without any success. A few notes: Registry backup /dir gave me 0 results and dism wouldnt do any /online commands I finally got my roommates laptop to get myself a win10 installation media but before I reset and lost files, I tried a fix from here It asked me to "load hive" in regedit under a "new key", edi
  7. words can't describe how incredibly helpful you were, you num
  8. thanks guys, seems to be the ryzen 2600 is a capable chip and it won't bottleneck a 2080Ti except in some cpu intensive games (obviously)
  9. Seriously, how noticeable of a bottleneck would it be if I upgrade my GPU to a 2080Ti in my Ryzen 5 2600 PC? Its currently a GTX1080 and with 16gb 3000Mhz CL15, enough power and pcie to back up the upgrade. Just wondering about the CPU Edit: for 1440p 144Hz gaming in AAA and early access games Thanks
  10. actually I can only buy in a month or so because of access to a cheaper market etc. So If its good to go, great. but if another few weeks would make a difference, should I wait out those weeks?
  11. for how long would you say? Edit: by this I mean to ask if Nvidia is planning anything this last quarter or has leaked something
  12. Been out of the loop for a while, I dug my head into work and away from the PC. Think I have enough saved up for an upgrade though. Current GPU is a gtx1080 Armor with a corsair H80i v2 cooler fitted on. I think I wanna move to a 2080Ti for 1440p 144hz gaming, need high frames on my usual AAA games and other heavy hitters like ARK, minecraft, DXball, roadrash etc. the usual. BUT, usually i do a lot of research before I make decisions with a lot of money involved and my hands are halfway tied these days so I beg the question to you folks; Is there some kind of "super" o
  13. 2K is technically 1080p, 3k would be 1440p which I think you mean but the other commentors are nums or just playing with you to not realize this obvious mistake. (Vertical number of resolution times 2 is usually how you get the "k" number. 4k has 2000-something pixels vertically). For a 1440p 144Hz to be utilized I would use a 2080 for the little bit of edge in fps (you wont get it on most AAA games) and it has the stronger feature of Ray Tracing. Easy choice Edit: I would just stick to using the full resolution instead of the "k" branding, its only mostly used in marke
  14. Hey guys, so a couple months ago I got myself a Kraken G12 with an H80i v2 for my GTX 1080 Armor OC. This, I feel, is an OP cooler for the task as my temps are literally never above 45c on load while my CPU goes upto 65/75. (picture below). I had some heating issues with the stock cooler where it would throttle after 82c on load. Now I have the opportunity to swap out the cooler, maybe use the H80iv2 on my Ryzen 2600 while I use something a little less overpowered and preferably with a bit more flexible tubing. These cables are so Tight I feel like I will tear them off or snap the
  15. Hey So I was thinking about upgrading my cpu and mobo. Currently - MSI B450-M Gaming Plus + Ryzen 5 2600 Thing is, I don't think I need the upgrade to Zen 2 as of now, and all of Intels products carry a huge premium (mobo, cooler). Rest of the Specs - 16Gb 2933Mhz C15 Ram and GTX 1080 2100Mhz Ryzen 3000 is better than my current chip but were talking about cpu performance increases which only give ~20% frames increase max on avg. For that, its not worth the price right? My idea now is to wait to see what Intel comes up with in response next year and get that. I can
