    I am a DUMB person and you should not listen to me.
    BTW I just thought I should mention, if you think that my computer is pretty great; awesome. I didn't pay for it outright though and multiple people payed for it as well as use it. No I am not rich enough to have that computer as simply my own.

  1. My guess is that is your problem my friend . Try to get some different DIMMS with a matching Mhz rating and CL rating, mostly the latency the same though.
  2. No problem ! I would try wiping the ssd and (as you said) installing Linux again. If it doesn't work, there is a chance it's the drive. Otherwise also try running Memtest through ALL the tests and see if maybe there is something up with your memory. Other than that, it could be your motherboard. Motherboards can still work if their damaged, but can do some weird stuff.
  3. I would try this, install Linux on an old drive or on a partition on your current drive. Next, as Velheim, and No man's sky are available on Linux through Steam (using the proton compatibility layer); install on Linux and see if you have the same issues. If you do, it's likely your drive, or another component. My recommended Linux distros: Zorin OS: https://zorin.com/os/ Mint OS: https://linuxmint.com/ Ubuntu: https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop Fedora: https://getfedora.org/ If you don't know how to install Linux, there are bunches of videos on
  4. Another question that I should ask is: Is it even posting? Or is it just not booting into the OS?
  5. I am no expert on RAM but the older DDR3 standard I believe is far less "scalable" (I guess is how you would say it) than DDR4. More importantly if the motherboard doesn't automatically underclock the RAM, or just doesn't have that feature that is a major problem. A lot of pre-built manufacturers do not have variable latency timing in the bios. Ensure, at the very least, that the RAM is the same latency.
  6. No. What games do you play? It could be an anti-cheat engine that messed up a base part of your OS.
  7. As @Mel0nMansaid, I also think it's probably incompatible RAM speed or even possibly more possible, the latency.
  8. Are there any error code lights on the laptop? Most Dell (or at least older Dell) laptops have error/info code lights on the laptop.
  9. This community has helped me when I have thought problems unsolvable or can't find the information I need online. Overall, a pretty great community, surprisingly, toxicity is actually pretty minimum as the forum is moderated in a pretty decent and fair way.
  10. If you can fit the cooler, the Noctua NH-d15 is highly, highly recommended. The 5900x should idle around 40c and (stock) peek at 70c or 75c. Definitely the NH-D15 though. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Y87YHRH?pf_rd_r=H71Y390BCNH422E6KTYB&pf_rd_p=8fe9b1d0-f378-4356-8bb8-cada7525eadd&pd_rd_
  11. I will say there are some pretty great older lenses for Nikon such as the sigma super macro 70-300mm f4-5.6. Here is one basically brand new: https://www.ebay.com/itm/265317794462?epid=101714126&hash=item3dc62c429e:g:2RQAAOSwaSRhNSo- There are numerous examples like this for Nikon, you just have to dig a little (or a lot )
  12. I agree but finding somewhat decent lenses in that price range as well as a body is going to be very difficult.
  13. No Problem, I am unsure whether I am going to use it for something or not, so probably for the better.
  14. This is what I've got, from an old dell.
  15. How does a GT720 sound? (edit: I guess you said PCI though)
