  1. Hi everyone! I have recently upgraded our previous home internet setup (previously just using ISP provided router) to the Netgear Orbi RBK13 AC1200 Mesh WiFi System. Overall, we haven't had any major issues until we have gone and tried to connect a range of smart devices, specifically Google Home devices, to the network. Whenever I attempt to connect any of the Google Devices by: 1. Plugging it in, letting it power up for a few minutes 2. Opening the Google Home App on a device connected to the WiFi 3. Selecting the Google Device in the App through the '
  2. Hi, I'm currently looking into upgrading my monitor for both gaming and university productivity along with working from home during the COVID-19 self-isolation period. Currently, I'm trying to decide between getting the AOC CU34G2X ($889 AUD) or an equivalent (but granted more expensive) G-Sync monitor ($1100+ AUD). So my question is: Is getting G-Sync worth it over going with the cheaper FreeSync available in the CU34G2X and enabling G-Sync through control panel? Is G-Sync worth the $400-600 AUD difference in price tag for Ultra Wide 120hz + ? Curre

  4. Hi there! I've just changed my old SSD for a new M.2 Nvme SSD with a fresh copy of windows installed today. Unfortunately - even before installing anything including drivers - the ASUS PCE-AC88 AC3100 no longer shows in Device Manager or displays wifi connections. The card was working perfectly right before the fresh install and I've tried the following: - Moved slots - Reinstalled drivers - Swapped back to original slot Update (5:26pm): I swapped the M.2 back to my old boot SSD and the Wifi card works perfectly in the same slot I
  5. Hi everyone! I'm currently looking into upgrading the ram in my Lenovo Yoga 520 laptop from the current 8gb x 1 (2400MHz) adding in another 8gb stick or changing out the current one with 2 x 8gb sticks to help improve my laptops functionality. Since I have never attempted to do this before I was hoping for some tips and part suggestions for upgrading the ram and (possibly) SSD from the current 128gb? ((Live in Australia)) Thanks in advance!

  12. Hey! So i'm building a PC for my younger brother as a birthday present from the family and i'm not the most experienced at doing so, but had a right ole crack and here it is, was wondering if there were any improvements, changes, etc that should/could be made to improve it?

  13. My motherboard only has one slot for the GPU, however I have completely unplugged it and replugged in with no change. Im assuming you mean either PCI or simply the monitor ports both of which are done. Will attempt this when home
  14. Hey, so about a week ago my computer was packed into my car to move back home from University, before which, there were no issues. As of getting home, my GTX 1060 will not display any image onto a monitor, but will spin the fans and the side Leds are still functional. While the onboard graphics work 100% fine. What potential fixes do you think? Or is my card having its last leg. Thanks in advance Specs: Processor: 4th Gen Intel Core i7-4770 3.9GHz Motherboard: Intel B85 Micro ATX motherboard RAM: 16GB DDR3 1600MHz in Dual Channel
