  1. You can run a Hard Drive horizontally just fine, though I don't recommend moving the drive while it's powered on of course.
  2. You can change this by toggling icons on/off in the Personalization > Taskbar screen of the Windows 10 Settings App.
  3. 943-000118 -- European SKU https://www.logitechg.com/en-eu/products/gaming-mouse-pads/g840-cloth-xl-gaming-mouse-pad.943-000118.html 943-000117 -- Canadian SKU https://www.logitechg.com/en-ca/products/gaming-mouse-pads/g840-cloth-xl-gaming-mouse-pad.943-000117.html
  4. Since EA are the publishers of the game, they'd be the best people to ask about specific errors for their game. Could be outdated or corrupted drivers, overclocked video card, CPU, or memory, or some other weird compatibility issue that's crept up after a recent software update. That being said, a quick search for "0x887a0006 dxgi_error_device_hung apex legends" reveals many threads on reddit and EA's own support site that contains various things you can try to resolve the issue. https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues/Engine-Error-0x887A0006-DXGI-ERROR-DEVICE-HUNG/td-p/8110299
  5. Try connecting the 360 controller to multiple other computers. If it does the same thing on those PC's too, chances are it's either damaged in some way or it's a knockoff controller. If it works on other PCs then it might just be your PC or Windows installation.
  6. I've run every version of Windows 10 since its' release, and while I'll say that some versions have hiccups on certain hardware, I've not personally experienced any issues updating all the way to version 20H2. I'd recommend updating to the newest version, after ensuring you have backups, of course.
  7. Logitech G700s for wireless or Logitech G500 for wired. Both feel great in the hand to me, and have a hyper-scroll wheel that I use daily.
  8. None of us have access to EVGA's webserver so we cannot say for sure, but I'd say there might be a problem with their ASPX script that's causing "error 17" for you. You'll need to contact them and have them investigate.
  9. It's still Monday for another 3 hours 16 minutes in LMG's timezone, so a video could still be released yet.
  10. Since the original Switch is essentially just a highly customized nVidia Tegra X1 tablet, I would guess a new version is coming sometime, but only Nintendo will officially know if and when. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tegra#Tegra_X1
  11. Assuming you haven't overwritten the blocks on the SD card where the picture data used to exist, your best free options are Recuva or TestDisk PhotoRec. If those can't recover them, your next options are shelling out $$ for something like RunTime Software's GetDataBack or sending the SD card into a professional data recovery lab for oodles of monies.
  12. I would bet you can probably Google search for "gpu repair shop" to find ones in your area, or expand your search to other areas. Did the repair shop you sent the card to provide the part number of the chip they were unable to replace on your graphics card? Without knowing the exact part number of "chip" you're looking for, nobody here will be able to reliably answer your question though. That being said, even if you found a replacement chip on another working 1080 Ti... I'd just opt to put the working 1080 Ti in your system rather than risk killing it by doing a chip transplant.
  13. Windows 10 has the ability to share the wired ethernet connection with other devices over WiFi, assuming you have a compatible WiFi adapter that supports this. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/use-your-pc-as-a-mobile-hotspot-c89b0fad-72d5-41e8-f7ea-406ad9036b85
  14. If the drive wasn't encrypted using a hardware based encryption module in the laptop, you should be able to connect it to another machine and access the data.
  15. Some HP laptops have built-in methods to recover / restore a working BIOS after a bad update or sudden loss of power during a BIOS update. You'll find the instructions for this on HP's support website at the following link: https://support.hp.com/ca-en/document/c02693833
