  1. Like I mentioned, my monitor does have a 3.5mm headphone out. However, the problem is that ps4 doesn't have a built in volume control. What I mean is that the ps4 outputs a very high volume even when the speaker volume knob is set to minimum and I can't control the volume from ps4. Also, re calibrating the speaker knob every time I switch between ps4 and pc is not ideal for me.
  2. Title. I currently have 2.1 ch. Creative speakers with subwoofer which I got about 9 years ago. I'm looking for an upgrade that will perform well in music and games. But my one specific need is that it should have dual input so that I can use the same speaker for my PC and PS4 (through monitor's 3.5mm jack). Another question, is a speaker upgrade worth it at all? I don't know how much audio technology has improved over the years. Or should I buy inexpensive speakers just for the ps4? I was planning to hit two birds with one stone by just getting a single speaker that would provide
  3. Try fiddling with mouse settings. Also try turning on/off Mouse Acceleration.
  4. Most probably a faulty RAM. I had a similar problem where the screen would turn static after a few minutes of gameplay and pc would turn off. Replaced RAM, everything ran normal.
  5. I haven't bought it yet. Plus it's a sealed pack so I want to have the unboxing experience all by myself. I was wondering if it's possible to check if the card is legit by it's serial number or any other number?
  6. India. And yes, agreed that my country imposes ridiculously high taxes for computer hardware.
  7. I'm going to buy this card soon which the seller claims to be an RMA piece. Usually these high end cards sell for a ridiculously high price where I live. I'm being offered ~USD420 (Rs. 30000) for this. Seems like a good deal to me since it costs way less than the usual price, RMA piece and a 1yr warranty. My question is, what should I look for to ensure that I'm getting what's being advertised? By the way, it is a sealed pack. Thanks!
  8. Thanks. Packed and put it in my shelf. Guess it will be sitting there till they respond
  9. I built it myself exactly a month back. Yes I checked everything and everything seems fine. Even the pc turns on and works properly. I'm really confused right now.
  10. That's the problem. I don't see anything burnt/popped inside the psu or motherboard as I try to look from outside. It's really hard to tell. Perhaps re assembling my pc would help?
  11. Should I try re assembling my pc? I'm quite uncertain about the source of the noise.
  12. I'm trying to avoid the hassle of packing and posting it to them during these times. Response times will surely be slow. If I find a solution, all well and good. Otherwise I'll have to request for an rma.
  13. The thing is, this happened while the pc was off WHILE plugged in thru main switch. Afaik this psu is more than enough to handle my current configuration (r5 3600, gtx 1660 super).
  14. I have a corsair tx650m. So this happened first time a few days ago when my pc was just sitting powered off but main switch was powered on. Suddenly a loud pop(bang?) sound came most likely from the psu. The first thing I did was turn off the main switch. After a couple of minutes I turned the pc on and it worked just fine even under load. In fact I played a lot of rdr2 until this happened again today. I always turn off the main switch at night so when I tried to turn on the main switch this evening, the same thing happened again. Waited a couple of minutes, tried turning on pc again, worked f
  15. You're right. After a while cpu usage dropped to 50%. Bumped the voltage up to 1.185v and everything runs good now!
