  1. Still haven't been able to resolve this issue. I threw the main boot M.2 SSD into another PC so I could run CrystalDiskInfo. Below are the results. Not sure why it is so bad?
  2. I've cleared any readonly attributes, though, using chkdsk still shows write protected. From an article that I read online, if it shows that it is write protected it is either that the attributes are set as readonly or that the partition file system is corrupted. So I guess mine is looking like the latter . I haven't the faintest idea why any of this would have happened...
  3. Since automatic startup repair was also failing, I tried the steps listed on this website. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/automatic-repair-couldnt-repair-pc Still no luck as seen below.
  4. Also, I should add: Are you planning to take RAW photos? Or are you just taking photos and saving them? I take all of my photos in RAW and then edit them through the camera raw plugin in Photoshop CC. If you are not planning to edit RAW photos, then you're going to be looking for a camera that has good colour processing out of the box without editing.
  5. I've just tried this however hit a roadblock. If I just have the C drive (SSD) connected I get: Total identified Windows installations: 1 But then can't continue; And, if I try it with both C & D drives connected and run "bootrec /rebuildbcd" I get: Total identified Windows installations: 0
  6. I've thrown my 1st media drive in another PC to see what is on it. It is just storage + WindowsApps & Program Files. I have just transplanted my daily 1080ti into the system, though still the same. Pretty much. When turning on the system, I'll get to the login page as per usual. Once I type in the password and hit enter, it'll take a good 10 minutes or so to get to the desktop. Then on the desktop, nothing works. No start menu, no pinned taskbar icons, taskbar unresponsive. Desktop icons are present but inoperable. I can use a s
  7. Personally, I'd go for either the Nikon or the Sony. The Sony is great for traveling as it is compact, and takes great photos. I've taken mine on plenty of travels and it's nice and inconspicuous. The Nikon is better if you are planning to go down a photography path thanks to better upgradability with lenses etc. The Sony & Nikon can both take 60fps video (1080p) whereas the Canon can only do 30fps. That's my knowledge.
  8. Depends on your use case. Is it for photography or videography primarily? I've had a Sony Alpha a5000 for a few years which is a great compact DSLR for photos, no complaints. You should probably compare lens compatibility and also have a look at some sample photos and online reviews.
  9. I've ordered several things from them over the years, mostly SSD's. I've also been to one of their stores in person - they seem pretty good to me.
  10. So, I've tried safe mode to no avail. Now, the odd thing is, I've disconnected my media drives and now when booting I just get; "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key_" The boot drive is recognized so I'm not sure what's going on here... I have a few spare GPU's that I can try. Unfortunately due to the CPU that I've got, it needs a GPU for video output.
  11. My server is in a pretty unhappy condition at the moment and I need some help to fix it. It will turn on and I can login to Windows and get to the desktop, however, everything seems to freeze up from there. The taskbar and desktop don't load properly and I can't even open the start menu. I usually leave it running all of the time as a Plex server and only access it via Teamviewer and Pulseway as it is not usually connected to a monitor. A short while ago, the server lost internet access whilst I was watching something on Plex. I checked on it using Pulseway
  12. I may be able to just squeeze that out, the cheapest 3900X is $739AUD, so the shipping all up may take me just over budget.
  13. I built my first PC around 7 years ago using Linus's ULTIMATE Build a Better $2000 Gaming & Silent Workstation PC Computer "How To" Guide back in 2013, with similar specs. That's still the same PC I use today, albeit with a few small upgrades. However, as I am now trying to edit 4K video in Premiere with an extremely stuttery playback, I'm looking to put another $1,700AUD (inc.shipping) into my PC. 80% of my use is Photoshop, Premiere and other editing applications, some GPU heavy, and some CPU heavy. I barely use it for gaming anymore, but when I have the chance, it's mainly s
  14. Yes, same results as from Windows. The ipconfig from the Windows side of things does show this. This is just numbers to me.
