  1. Hello, My friend has a 5 year old laptop that runs windows 10 (HDD) for the 3rd time this week, I ran the DSKCHK command in the troubleshooting page of windows (when it fails to boot) and it said there were errors, I tried to run the CHKDSK /F command but it said it couldn't do it? Can anyone explain how to run it? It posts fine, but is having trouble booting, Thanks!
  2. I have the Asus ROG STRIX X570-F and the 3700x, I have been trying for a long time to get the RGB on the cooler to work, but have had no luck. My motherboard has a 4 pin RGB header & USB header, I was wondering is there any way to control the cooler using aura sync (I am using the Armoury Crate program for it). I have tried to sync it up, but the outer ring is doing a colour cycle and the fan LEDs are going between blue & white. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

  5. Hello, does anyone know that when I try to load the XMP / D.O.C.P on my 2x8GB of g.skill 3200Mhz it crashes, I can run it at 3000Mhz but I have 3rd gen ryzen so would really like the quicker RAM! Any help appreciated, Thanks and I hope you stay safe in these times
  6. I have too many fans for my desktop, I looked online and found Y splitters, my fans draw 0.3 amps, my concern is the splitter is a 4 pin to a 4 and 3 pin, will the missing pin mean it will be on full blast at a time?
  7. Yes I do, I don't think it will work as it is quite old wiring and the house has got two different circuits with two seperate fuse boxes. Also it's mainly the WiFi thats the problem, ethernet is working fine.
  8. Hello, I have been using a BT HomeHub for my router for around 5 years, but it has been getting slower over the years, I have around 6 devices connecting at a time, a mesh network would be nice as there are alot of walls which the WiFi needs to penetrate. There is a NAS which I may think be degrading the performance. Any suggestions? A budget of around £250 - US$330 Thanks
  9. Hello, I want to run my RAM at the rated speed of 3200Mhz, but everytime I try to enable D.O.C.P in the BIOS the system doesn't post, then after a few restarts posts in 'safe mode' I can't boot into windows unless I set the AI overtuner to Auto, making my RAM run at 2133. I have a ROG Strix X570 - Gaming Mobo Ryzen 7 3700X 16GB G.skill TridentZ RGB (at 3200Mhz) Geforce GTX 1660ti (ROG) and a Corsair RM850x PSU Anyone know what is happening? Thanks
  10. Hello, I am wanting to get strip lights to go around my room, I need about 20M and phone control would be nice, they also need to be bright. Anyone have any suggestions? I live in the UK and by budget is £65. Thanks
  11. I have G.Skill 3200Mhz RAM, if I turned D.O.C.P on to run it at 3200Mhz, would it void my warranty? Thanks
  12. I have a Asus X570 ROG Strix F motherboard and a few metres of RGB lighting with 4 pin connectors on, I doubt it but is there any way that I can connect these to the 4 pin RGB headers on my motherboard? Thanks
  13. I bought memory and it says 3200Mhz, but when I go into task manager it says "speed: 2133 MHz" I have a AMD 3700X with an X570 Mobo Any idea why this is happening?? Thanks
  14. Every time I try and open aura sync this pops up for a second then disappears, anyone know what the problem is? Thanks
  15. As it turns out it was the PSU that caused the fault!
