  1. I was troubleshooting a different issue and wiped all AMD software and reinstalled my graphics drivers, and now suddenly the Audio Console works again and I can select surround sound. Computers are weird. I’ll have to do some blind tests comparing surround to stereo. Maybe I’ve just convinced myself one is somehow better at conveying direction when it’s actually the same.
  2. I can’t even tell if something is in front of me or behind me when I hear a sound at the moment. Directional sound was pretty nice.
  3. Hello, I used to have a Hyperx Cloud Revolver S set up via a 3.5mm stereo jack (due to intense whine when using USB), running 7.1 surround using Realtek’s Audio Console. I ran into issues with the headset not outputting any sound and uninstalled it using device manager, which seemed to fix the issue. Now, the Realtek software wont start, giving a “can’t connect to RPC service” error and the headset is stuck in standard non-directional sound mode. I’ve tried the troubleshooting options provided on Microsoft’s page and performed a full reinstall of RAC but nothing has work
  4. I've heard the 3600 and 3700X have very limited overclocking abilities since they're optimised to run at max out of the box. How would an overclocked 3700X compare to an overclocked 9600K in a single-core test?
  5. Currently running a non-OC i5-3570K with 16GB RAM on a B75 board with a GTX 1070. Unfortunately I'm a big fan of some very poorly optimised games (DCS World, KSP, etc) that are RAM-hungry and run primarily on a single core, and my current chip at 3.3 GHz is getting long in the tooth. Running 3 SATA drives (2 SSDs) with no plans to upgrade to M.2 but that could always change. My idea right now is the following (w/ prices in Swedish Krona) - i5-9600K @ 2700 SEK - Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X @ 1800 SEK - 2x16GB Corsair LPX RAM @ 1800 SEK This brings me to a to
  6. I'm having a strange issue with my sound. I play Digital Combat Simulator, for which someone has made an external program that makes the in-aircraft radios functional and allows you to talk to other players in multiplayer, called SRS. If I start SRS and Spotify in running, I hear all my sounds stutter and a mic-pop-type sound and then all sound from DCS and Spotify is gone and SRS crashes. Windows sounds will still work immediately afterwards, Spotify and DCS both get sound back after restarting them. This isn't a huge issue, since I can just shut down Spotify when I need to s
  7. Yep, both the game and OS are up to date. We’re working on getting a refund if Sony support can’t sort it.
  8. My brother’s PSVR is getting stuck on the loading screen for MR. It gets to the screen with image of the robots destroying a city, but no further. Restarts have had no effect. Any help is appreciated.
  9. DSLR noob here. I'm having an issue with my new 1300D. It refuses to take pictures or even focus when in Autofocus mode. Manual focus works just fine. I've tried changing the AF method to Live or Quick mode, but it didn't help. The screen goes black like it's supposed to, but there's no beep and it doesn't focus and fully depressing the shutter doesn't do anything. The odd thing is, it worked just fine yesterday, which is the day I got it.
  10. I’m looking to buy a new 1440p 60Hz+ 25in+ monitor, preferably IPS/PLS with height adjustment. Since theres so much to choose from in terms of monitors these days and I’ve been absent from the general tech community for so long, I decided to consult you guys. Any recommendations? Budget: $450
  11. I’m having an issue with a series 3 where the face background pic keeps changing to a random photo from my photo library which I haven’t selected. I’ve selected the “Custom” option and picked some photos, but they dont show up.
  12. The bug is known as screen tearing and can typically be fixed by turning on V-sync in a game's settings.
  13. Will check that. I'm having sooo many issues with various software with this PC that I can't fix that I might just wipe the SSD and re-install windows to completely rule out hardware issues.
  14. This started a few days ago. I can play for about 10-15 minutes before the screen goes black and whatever sound was playing at the time starts repeating unendingly. Ctrl+Alt+Delete does nothing until after about a minute, when the black screen gives way to this . I can see that RAM usage is fairly normal, neither GPU or CPU or maxed out. I can't interact with the PC after this and have to force a restart. Nothing is overclocked. I have tried reinstalling Arma. EDIT: I have found the error in Event Viewer. It says: Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exceptio
