  1. Hey there, You'll need to open a window called "system configuration" You do this by going into the start menu and typing in "sysconfig" Then hit enter and go to the boot tab on the window that opens. from there you can delete the extra install. I don't have an extra install in my photo, but you should see two there.
  2. I've always wanted a turtle pond, and I was thinking of taking some time to build one for my parents. I thought maybe someone here would have some advice for me. I was thinking of using retaining wall blocks as the sides of the pond to make it look like an old water well. I'm not sure yet what I should do about the turtles variety of spaces. I've seen people who just have platforms in the water for the turtle to sunbathe, but that seems like hardly enough. I think I'd want to place the entire pond into a port cut out of a piece of plywood, and fill the area with sand, gravel, and s
  3. Hello all, I was wondering if anyone had assembled a list of cables that passed the test for connecting a Quest 2 headset to a PC. As far as I can tell, I don't have a USB-C 3.1 port on my graphics card or mobo, so I'll be doing type A to type C. I appreciate any advice on this so I don't end up buying and returning cables en masse (a wasteful practice in normal times, and especially in covid times). P.S. I'd ideally like to buy the cable from BestBuy and pick it up curbside.
  4. my usual settings, mostly high detail (except for shadows and reflections) with a resolution of 3440x1440. I've never bothered with the texture streaming options, but every time even a small update happens I have to download more textures. The whole game had been unstable and was barely functional. When I finally got a game to start before an error this happened, but it fixed itself after a minute. I just thought it was absolutely hilarious. My friends and I find that we have to reinstall the game every few months because it becomes extremely glitchy/unstable and scanning the game files doesn'
  5. Call of Duty: Downloading high-def shaders for an improved experience Also Call of Duty: Easily my favorite example of how janky this game is to date
  6. Granted, but it's a grenade and it goes off in your hand. I wish I was a better cook.
  7. like others are saying, you may have plugged your power LED into the HDD activity pins on your motherboard. It's a pretty simple thing to test out.
  8. In my experience XMP is extremely temperamental. I've never heard of it killing ram though. I think you should go into the bios and factory reset it, or at least reverse all XMP settings, then shutdown the system and unplug it and reseat the memory (just pop it out, make sure there's no dust in the slots, and put them back in). Then see if the memory is being recognized. For what it's worth, you do only need 16 GB, or even 8 GB, for a decent rig to play dota and even stream or edit. If that works, then manually enter the speed for the memory instead of using XMP. If there's an opt
  9. sounds like you're hitting a bottleneck somewhere. What storage are you using? Also it might be software related. you could try reinstalling and looking for any greedy programs in the background.
  10. I think I know what's going on. at some point your fan died, either because the rotor gunked up or the stator lost one of its connections. Now that the fan isn't spinning, it's not generating the back emf that the card is tuned for. As a result, the current is surging way higher than it should and causing your fans to either stay off or pin at 100%. You'll need to either do one of those ghetto mods where you put a cpu cooler on a gpu, get an NZXT kraken to do some quick water cooling, or get a new card.
  11. That seems to be the consensus. I guess I'm just curious about how to do it at this point. I'm running the latest version of ubuntu. I'm not actually sure about the bandwidth, but I could get a tracker going.
  12. Latency improvement is important to me as for some reason when someone uses frostwalker on the minecraft server it causes huge latency on other services. Also I'm talking about pointing services to specific network nics, not bifurcating the pci slot.
  13. Alright, this is pretty advanced, and I'm a Linux novice, but here goes nothing. I thought it would be nice to be able to install a multi-nic network card on my itx computer that I use for game servers and plex (not 2.5Gb on router, Couldn't afford it ). I want to do this so that I can bifurcate it and have certain services specifically use a dedicated nic and not fight each other for connection. This is very silly but I'm curious none-the-less. Does anyone have any idea on how to do this or advice? Thanks everyone!
  14. I ended up completely uninstalling the xbox app and just downloading the games from the windows store app and playing them from the start menu like any other app. I recommend you do the same.
  15. Thanks for the suggestion. It looks like this is a t-mobile problem and not a phone problem, so I'll call t-mobile today.
