  1. Tablet < Chromebook < Laptop A real keyboard is better than a screen, or small tablet keyboard. If she is grading papers and zooming all day, the right device is going to be important. If you have the means, I highly recommend a laptop, even a used on.
  2. Can you update chrome os? The easiest way to fix this is to use what you have. CHrome OS was made to run (mostly) on ARM hardware and windows was made to run on X86. There is a windows for ARM, but I haven't heard good things about it. Is the issue that you are out of storage..?
  3. You need to be more clear as to what exactly you are asking. Are you trying to upgrade your chromebook to windows to watch HULU? That won't work. Chromebooks usually can't run regular windows.
  4. It's not bad. Ebay has a return policy and buyer protection, but I would buy from a well reviewed seller. Also beware of stuff coming from overseas. It can take a LONG time to get to you and cost a lot in shipping.
  5. Pull the CMOS battery for 5 minutes and then reinstall it. Just to make sure that isn't the issue.
  6. Both technically true. I'd still install the old GPU and use DDU.
  7. Probably. Your motherboard has an official supported RAM listing on the website for it. If your friend is cool, he'll let you try the sticks out and make sure they work.
  8. Yeah NP. Like I said, if you find a K CPU for cheap, go ahead and get it if you want to upgrade what you have, but usually the nonK will be cheaper. I see 6600Ks for under $100 and 6700 NonK for around $100 on ebay.
  9. Because your motherboard with it's H110 chipset can't overclock them. You need a Z chipset to do that. It will boot with a 6600K/7700K/6700K but you won't be able to OC them.
  10. You could run up to a 4 core 8 thread CPU in that system but you would need to find a good deal for it to make sense. Don't bother looking for a "K" version of a CPU. Get a 6700 or 7700 non-K if you can find one for a price you can live with. I agree, 2 sticks of RAM will improve performance.
  11. Thanks for the help. I know there are about 50 of these posts a day on this forum, but if anyone finds this one - This was fixed by a reset of windows and reinstall of Steam, Origin and other game managers. This was not a hardware issue.
  12. No Go. Swapped RAM and that didn't work either. Fresh install of windows is going to be my next move unless anyone has any other ideas.
  13. I can try this, but why would it cause a crash on just her system? Is everyone else already setting a limit or enabling VSYNC?
