  1. Very true. My GPU is a 1060 6GB is super marked up rn and I still have all the packaging
  2. Not sure if this is the right subforum, but this seemed like the best place to put it. This isn't my happiest move I've made in life, but it's one I probably need to make nontheless. I'm going to have to sell my PC. Apple's MacBook Pro announcement blew me away, but the price blew me away as well. Not that I think it's overpriced, I just think it's not within my disposable income. I've been waiting for this for a while as I've been needing a laptop for a while that can fully supplement my desktop video production experience without either compromising on performance or just remotel
  3. I wish the notch wasn't there, but I'd take that compared to not having those pixels at all. There's already apps to blacken out that area and move the bar down entirely if you really hate it, and Apple hides it in full screen mode anyways. It's more screen real estate for people to use if they really want that option. I wish they'd let us have on-die RAM and swappable RAM that acts as a (very) fast swap partition, but I guess that'd be too complicated. I understand the expensive RAM, I just wish we got another option. I'm considering selling my desktop for this (seriously) and jus
  4. Since PC gaming has become pretty mainstream, most devs make their games pretty optomized for mid spec hardware. Think a 1060 or 2060 for 1080p. It pretty much just scales by resolution. For everyday computing, you likely don't need much. You could go with an older i5 or Athlon CPU and it'd work great for general browsing and such. As long as it's an APU, it'll do fine. For programming, you really just need to focus on your CPU, RAM, and SSD if you're just compiling. GPU power only comes into the picture if you need to do stuff like AI training or you're working on something that's designed to
  5. Well, at least it’s seeing something. I’ll see if I can get the important stuff off.
  6. I’m not sure Sony could have legal grounds to do that (they didn’t sue Dbrand when they made a replica if the original black plates) but I’m not a lawyer.
  7. Ran a TestDisk deep scan, 3 partitions couldn’t be recovered (1 500MB, 2 500GB which doesn’t make sense). If I change any other partitions to primary it says there’s a problem with the table. I’m currently on the partition screen but away from home. What should I do?
  8. I’m familiar with Hiren’s and Linux (I actually have it on another drive) but I’d like to stay in a Windows environment since it’s, you know, NTFS, which Linux doesn’t really play nice with. I tried using DiskGenius (which only saved recovery info in memory) to no avail. It said the entire partition was 0’d out, which I don’t really believe since it said the whole disk was 0’d out except for a few bytes, which makes no sense since the entire recovery partition is intact which I assume takes up more than 7 bytes. Not sure how well TestDisk will work since nothing else found it, but this is my l
  9. This would work with Hiren’s Boot CD, right? I have a USB disk with that on it. I’m fine if most things are hosed, all I really care about is the user folder (specifically documents) and the program files folder would be useful to have.
  10. I have a way bigger issue now. I followed the tutorial and there was something missing from the tutorial. When making the EFI volume fat32, they don’t tell you to change the volume selected to it! Diskpart gave me an error within 0.1 seconds but now my C:/ partition is RAW. Disk recovery software can’t find it. How did DISKPART 0 out the drive in a fraction of a second, and can I get my data back?
  11. This only affects startup. Shutdown still powers the PC down. Hibernation is different from sleep mode, in which hibernation saves the RAM on your hard drive for long-term access instead of keeping it in RAM
  12. Followed that guide, it tried to format my partition 2 as fat32 (my Windows partition)! It got 0% of the way through but now my C:/ drive is RAW! How do I get it back to NTFS without losing data? AFAIK, none of the data left, but the partition is now stuck as RAW.
  13. Press Win + Ctrl + S to disable the speech recognition feature or turn it off in the Ease of Access settings in the Windows 10 Settings app.
  14. "So that young people can learn and see the world" Good one, China.
  15. Changed a few settings (like POST delay time) and it looks like the POST is fine for now, but for some absolutely stupid reason MS moved my boot manager to the slowest drive in the system, likely during an update if Spiceworks is anything to go by. I posted a separate thread about this and I'm trying the fix right now. Wish me luck!
