  1. Thought I'd follow up on this solution, I decided to poke around the boot settings on the bios. I changed the boot order to allow the actual boot drive to come first, and that fixed the problem. I have no idea why it would change, but now it's fixed. Thank you, but the problem is now solved.
  2. Hey everyone, I was just trying to update my bios (and it was up to date, so nothing changed) and now my computer has this very slow startup. It had this at one point but went away on its own out of nowhere. It comes up right after booting the PC, and it says: >>Checking Media Presence...... >>Media Present...... >>Start PXE over IPv4. and then this will occasionally flash below it: PXE-e21: remote boot cancelled. If anyone has a way to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated, because like I said, it had gone away be
  3. This seems to have solved my problem. I updated the chipset and everything (so far) is working as it usually does. I know you said that UserBenchmark is garbage however comparing the test results from before and after combined with the real world use results it looks like this was the solution. The ram still looks like it's underperforming but that's another problem for another day. https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/25800562 results if you care to take a look. Thank you to everyone for all the help.
  4. Here it is. Like I said, not really anything that's too intensive on the system aside from Chrome eating up my ram.
  5. I did test all my drives a couple months back and had to remove one because it had become too old and slow. I recall the HDD and SSD being perfectly healthy, not that this is still the case but I can't imagine a drive completely degrading in a couple months under the same conditions it has been in for so long. My bios is also the latest version.
  6. Everything seems normal. Chrome of course eats up ram, but that's it. No viruses here.
  7. Everything. Simply trying to load this page takes 5 seconds.
  8. Hey everyone, Today I noticed that my PC was running obscenely slow. Yesterday it was running fine; it was business as usual. I ran a test on UserBenchmark and these were the results. UserBenchmarks: Game 42%, Desk 23%, Work 37% CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X - 17% GPU: Nvidia RTX 2070 - 103.2% SSD: Crucial MX500 500GB - 70.4% HDD: WD Blue 1TB (2012) - 99.6% RAM: Corsair CMW16GX4M2C3600C18 2x8GB - 56% MBD: Asus ROG STRIX X470-F GAMING https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/25798810 - Link to see the full test It seems like just about everything i
  9. I appreciate your response, but the problem has (thankfully) been resolved with minor work. The CPU has appropriate power, and the wiring is done as necessary. The PSU isn’t cheap; I forget the 80 plus rating on it but it is pretty high up. Funnily enough, my off brand one that came with a prebuilt didn’t have this issue, but things could be worse. Thank you for the help :)
  10. I decided to actually dig into my PC and test the hard drives individually. I unplugged both and the whole system ran beautifully, and then plugged one of the hard drives back in and acheived the same performance. I've found the faulty hard drive, so I guess I'll have to remove it. Thank you, everyone, for all the help.
  11. So I found a program called gsmartcontrol, which might not be a great program, but it showed that the older hard drive has had errors in the past but not recently. It also said that all 3 (2 HDD 1 SSD) were all good.
  12. Air cooled, but I've tested it and it has no problems even when pushed hard. I'm having problems now as I'm typing this; I can just feel the lag as I type but I can see the lights in the system actually lagging.
  13. Hey everyone. Recently (August 2019) I built a new PC with a Ryzen 5 3600X, an RTX 2070, and 16GB of RAM. The thermals are perfectly fine, it doesn't have any malware, and I've cleaned a lot of junk off. I make sure to keep it clean, and there is no problem with dust buildup. The past couple weeks, I've noticed a serious slowdown, and have even crashed while playing some games. I have two suspicions: the hard drive and the power supply. The hard drive originally came with a pre-built PC I purchased back in April 2016, and I've also heard some strange clicking sounds, but I dismissed it as not
  14. Just got this headset today. The mic is super sensitive and I can't modify the audio at all. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
  15. I know expensive doesn't mean high quality, but I promise you my components are high quality.
