  1. I am trying to repair MotoG5s Plus I have. I am using an SMD rework station (878ad), instead of a heat gun, and a vacuum suction cup for pulling the screen once glue gets loose from the heat. I have tried with 125 Celsius temperature (I know it is higher than recommended), and tried heating for 3 minutes. The glue doesn’t get loose at all. What should I do to open it? Should I try with even higher temperature, or should I try heating for a longer duration? I have tried following the following instructions, but didn't succeed.
  2. I tried this around 2007. At the time intel used to offer their own tool. Found this for NUC - https://www.intel.in/content/www/in/en/support/articles/000023875/mini-pcs.html There should be similar stuff for other motherboards. [Edit] - https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006606/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards.html This seems relevant
  3. theiet.org/new-form-of-computer-memory-is-1-000-times-faster/ According to this article, this new startup called "blueshift memory" have developed a new kind of memory module which could be upto 1000 times faster than the ones we use today. They give analogy with a city where everything - shops, houses, etc. are constantly changing. This refers to data being moved around in a conventional memory module. There memory module, using the same analogy , in some ways gives each place a sort of permanent address. The thing that is mind boggling is how can fixing placement of data
  4. Can anyone please share the EDID of this monitor, or of any other 8K monitor?
  5. Finally upgrading the firmware of the video card worked for me. - http://www.tomshardware.com/faq/id-2288384/upgrade-gpu-bios.html Additionally I would like to add a peculiar thing about the motherboard. The other graphics cards which were working with it were only working when the RAM stick (I had only 1 RAM module) was installed in 7th slot (DDR4_7_1D). The motherboard's manual says that a single ram module should be installed in slot 3 (DDR4_3_1B). This information in the manual is wrong.
  6. Drivers should not matter. Drivers come into picture once OS takes over. I am not even able to see BIOS screen.
  7. I am trying to assemble a new system for a friend. Following is the configuration. MB - Gigabyte X99P-SLI CPU - Intel 6800 k PSU - Cooler master V1000 The graphics card which I am trying to attach is Nvidia 760 Ti. After attaching the card, and booting the machine, I am unable to see anything on monitor. It simply goes to sleep because of no input. The card works absolutely fine on my computer which has ASUS Maximus VII Formula Motherboard, along with Intel 4790K CPU, and Antec 1300W PSU. I also have checked by swapping the PSU from my computer (ASUS 1300W) to h
  8. Hi, To the people facing similar issue, here is how I fixed it. First let me show you the reply from Gigabyte support. They told me to update the BIOS, which seems the correct thing to do in the given situation, but I discovered when my system finally booted that the BIOS was already latest, i.e. F23 version (as of 20 April 2017). It in fact wasn't a BIOS issue. Instead it was a RAM issue. These "hi-end" motherboards require the RAM to be installed in particular configuration. The board has 4 memory channels, and if you have a single RAM modul
  9. I bough several systems with Gigabyte X99P-SLI motherboards, and core i7 6800k CPUs. The system wouldn't simply boot. I have tried resetting the bios by removing the COMS battery for about 1 minute. The system is showing no POST messages on my PCIE POST card. Few moths back I had faced a similar issue, but the motherboard was Gigabyte's X99-SLI and not Gigabyte X99P-SLI, which came with Q Flash plus, using which I upgraded the bios with a pen drive. A note on Gigabyte QFlash Plus and QFlash - If a motherboard comes with QFlash Plus support, its BIOS can be upgraded wit
  10. Cloning isn't really a problem, since I have my data backed up, but yes keeping my windows key safe, and using it while reinstalling is something I didn't have in my mind, thanks for the reminder.
  11. My Dell precision 5510 laptop came with a paltry 256 GiB M.2 NVMe, which has filled up to 100% in just a month (no media files, just heavy developmental work). I am looking for a 1 TiB upgrade, but 1 TiB NVMe drives are out of my budget. Can I install a 1TiB M.2 SATA SSD, like this one from samsung - http://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/solid-state-drives/ssd-850-evo-m2-1tb-mz-n5e1t0bw/ ? (The SSD installed in my laptop has M.2 port with 1 notch, while the Samsung SSD has two notches - something to do with M.2 B and M.2 M - can't figure out which is which) In general, wi
