  1. Also .. you do not need to switch HDD, M2 .. whatever ... just make sure u have at least 20% spare so that windows can use its cache properly - also make sure you havent played with that in the past too ( u may have changed something n forgotton (I do that )) https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-virtual-memory-size-windows-10
  2. I could be a faulty GPU ... Are you able to stick another GPU to test it out? I`d also take out 1 stick of RAM and re-seat the other, test & then swap for the other just in case one of the stick has gone or its not seated correctly. Best way to diagnose a Issue it just to remove as much Hw as u can one stage at a time or boot into a completely different Os ( like PopOs ) just incase it windoze. But in all honestly .. It sounds hw releated ... Ring a mate ... borrow their GPU for the night .. give them a few beers for the hassle ... maybe even get them ro
  3. Do you still get lag drops when you limit the games to 60 or 30 fps?
  4. If its happening in everything my 1st thoughts would be that you do not have enough HD space spare (20%) or that you have a dodgy sata lead. Do you still get the lag drop if you set the max fps to 60 or even 30 in games?
  5. Ok .. Well that was a PITA ... I cannot find anything to do with "secure boot" anywhere within the BIOS ... nada! It also seems that I am booting in Legacy mode with manjaro & UFEI with windows 10 .. Its been a while since I played with BIOS`s. The odd thing I did notice tho was that I seem to have 3 boot options when I only have 2 Os`s each installed on their own separate drive? Im wondering if this could be causing the issue? The Highlighted drive below (PM sata3 120gb ssd) is the one that I have Manjaro installed on .. With (what I believe) the
  6. Thx for the replies peeps ... I will take a look into the secure boot (but Im pretty sure its disabled atm anyway) and get back to you. The thing that gets me is that I have seen posts (loads) with people that have the same GPU as me in arch/manjaro and even Pop that have this working ... but also a hell of a lot of other people that cant ... I do believe that the amdgpu-pro drivers are maintained for this GPU range as I always see updates being released. Aside from the secure boot thing ..Has anyone else got an other suggestions b4 I revert everything back to how the A
  7. For some reason I cannot edit n delete the last 4 randomly added pics either
  8. Hello ... Back with the results n Im afraid to say it feels that I have gone backwards as I feared TLDR ... I did everything as suggested but upon boot it black screens with no chance of a TTY2. If I nomodeset it, I can get TTY2. From there I only removed the "blacklist radeon" and updated the initfram things .. I can now boot and see a GUI, but vulkan is not working now & the games in steam that loaded but eventually crashed with DX11 errors - will not even load now. Long version .... Before I did anything I tried the new proton update. There a
  9. Hey peeps & thx for answering ..... Just to Clear it up .. I own a 290 .... not a 280 ( that was in the past ) inxi -G Graphics: Device-1: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Hawaii PRO [Radeon R9 290/390] driver: radeon v: kernel Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.13 driver: loaded: ati,radeon unloaded: modesetting resolution: 1920x1080~60Hz OpenGL: renderer: AMD HAWAII (DRM 2.50.0 5.9.16-1-MANJARO LLVM 12.0.1) v: 4.5 Mesa 21.3.0-devel (git-fce0027d91) The main reason I am on the amdgpu-pro nutt is because I have already been thru that p
  10. Hello .. Me again .. Nayr438 - Soz I didnt reply in the old thread, but TLDR, it gave the same result n my head blew up n I had to leave it for a month Anyhow on to the current issue... Guess what .. its the same one ... Current setup - I5 2500, R9 290, 16Gb RAM, Manjaro KDE installed, Still on 5.9 Kernel due to a time-shift rollback ( I buggered the GRUB just b4 this post with too much desperate tinkering ) .. Anyhow .. This time somehow I have "vulkan" working using I assume the updated Radeon drivers, I can get vxcube running and get no errors when I "
  11. Im gonna go with either ure gpu drivers r corrupted or win10 recently updated n knackered something. Start with a re-install of ure gpu drivers n if no luck ... roll back w10 n re-update Edit .... B4 all that ... try pushing ALT+enter just after the game starts to do this ... it could be loading up in a borderless window mode n lagging out like that too?
  12. Hi Again & thx for you replies xAcid9 - I believe that I have all the correct drivers installed but I do not have the option to select amdgpu from that list Nayr438 - Im deffo on the R9 290, but I did also own a 280 & a 270x of which you have read some previous battles .. I believe that I have all the correct drivers installed, its just not auto-switching over n I guess when it comes down to the last final steps, I must be doing something wrong .. but I just cant place my finger on it. The only issue I can see I had
  13. I want to come back after 3 beers, a healthy dose of uplifting house music (Jody Wisternoff April 2021 DJ Mix) & a bit of grit to get this bleeding resolved! I think I must have had a bad install where pretty much everything worked apart from 1 or 2 random things that I could not place my finger on as after a fresh re-install .. mainly every thing is working again (apart from the random artifacts linked above) ... Still gonna say it .... " Bl***y Linux! .. Maybe its my age n I should really be saying "Bl***y Computers!!" Also I thought I would re-solution the fix
  14. Thx for the replies .. but I think im going to do the child repair and re-install once again ... f-ing bullshit that prt-screen does not work
  15. Find me a guide that tells me "everything" I need to type and I`ll give it a go .. but as mentioned so far every guide I find - doesnt & basiclly informs me "I need to know the way of the linux code jedi`s" or ure buggered
