  1. I managed to take it apart until this point. One more screw still stuck, trying to get it out, and not sure how to unplug that wire or just leave it. I am still more concerned about the front screen anyway. If I take off the last screw, will I be able to take of the bezel? There's a piece of tape underneath...?
  2. This monitor quite old, but my brother bought it new last year and gave it to me. So it's been used only a year. I can't believe it's that hard and expensive to just take out the screen for a quick clean up. It's not like I am replacing it.
  3. I have an ASUS MX279 monitor. I squashed a bug that I saw crawling on my computer screen. Turns out the goddamn bastard was inside the screen, not outside. And now there's a very annoying spot on the screen. I tried watching some tutorial videos on how to take apart my monitor but still couldn't understand how they did it. I tried to follow the steps but I was worried that I might have done something wrong. Here is how the monitor looks like: https://i.ibb.co/n7GkwcZ/20210911-230239.jpg https://i.ibb.co/dLCMSQb/20210911-230219.jpg https://i.ibb.co/yWX6wx3/2021
  4. @Biohazard777Lol. I meant, I could think of nothing that could have caused a spot like that. There was no food or drink near the spot. I mean, you could tell how high it was, right? XD @tikkerYep. Tried cleaning both sides. Felt nothing. I thought of using windex or soap, but I was afraid it could have made the glass look worse. I think it's actually acrylic... It's not gonna get worse, is it?
  5. Depends on the price. If the 16 is cheap, get it. If not, don't even bother. You might see like a 10% difference in performance, if I recall correctly, but it's really not worth the $20 difference. Save it for something else.
  6. Just started to notice this strange spot on my case's glass window. No idea what it is, but I'm sure it's very recent. Nothing could have caused it, either. When I touch it, both inside and outside, I don't feel anything, just the glass's surface. Tried to clean it, but nothing came off. Anyone knows what this could be and how to clean or get rid of it? Thanks!
  7. OK. Update: I went into NVIDIA control panel and set the max limit frame rate for OBS, PS1, and PSP to 60, then set the common fps in OBS back to 60 again. Miraculously, Mega Man doesn't have slowdowns anymore. But Tekken still has hiccups. I still have yet to test the other modern games, like Vanquish or DB Fighter. Not sure how this worked, but, welp, it worked, at least for now. Ah, I also switched to VBR, 60k to 300k. Also took screenshots of the task manager's performance. I think this was after I watched a recording. Not sure what that spike is...
  8. @LogicalDrmSystem usage is only about a few percent last time I checked in task manager. OBS's stats say CPU usage is less than 1%. Not sure what's correct but it shouldn't be too much. More information: I tried another program called Mirillis Action, and it recorded both games smoothly, at 60fps and VBR. So at least there's a program out there that can record without hiccups. Problem is that this is a paid program and its layout and functions are not as customizable as OBS. Now, back to OBS. I decided to turn preview on and play the game from there, just to see how it'
  9. Frames missed due to rendering lag: 1 Frames missed due to encoding lag: 1 (sometimes 0) Surely the problem lies here... But CPU usage is always lower than 1%?
  10. Yeah, I do have Vsync on. I think I once tested without Vsync and the game ran worse, not sure about the video or if I was recording at all. But still, surely people record and play games with Vsync on, no? It's puzzling to me that other people record just fine but I have this strange problem. And it will be noticeably annoying to see many instances of this in a long video.
  11. Well that's the problem right there. Those slowdowns were never present during gameplay and shouldn't be in the video at all.
  12. Hello, I've been using OBS to record my gameplay videos. The game itself runs fine, but in the recorded footage, there will be at least one instance in which the video shows that the game slowed down for a second or so, then returned to normal again. FPS counter shows no frame drop, and I swear I did not notice any slowdown when I played the game. At first, I thought this was an OBS issue. But upon further testing, using NVIDIA and Xsplit, they both showed the same problem, only perhaps at different time interval. You can see it here (OBS): https://www.youtube.com/watch
  13. @Donut417 Yeah, the router was provided, I think it's about 6.5 years old at this point. I don't know if it overheats or not, but it has been very unstable recently. What do you suggest I do?
  14. @Donut417Well, my brother has all the account information, and asking him to do anything is a pain. Hard to convince him anything... So what's the point of getting that range extender, anyway...? Also, I haven't been able to connect to it in the last few days, despite it being on. Strange. So even if I get a new router, the result won't be different.
  15. @Donut417It's a coax cable, really hard to pull out, so it's cable internet. My upload speed is also very inconsistent. Just ran another test and it's 5. But usually it's around 3 or so.
  16. @Donut417Not sure, since I'm not the one paying for internet service. Definitely not fiber, for sure, so it's either DSL or cable. Our family doesn't have any paid-TV service or program, though. It might be enough but if it keeps dropping and being unstable then it's pointless. Sometimes my ping goes up the roof or gets disconnected, and it's game over.
  17. Hello, I've been having problems with my internet quite bad recently, about a few months ago. It has always been bad for gaming, but this year, it was the worst. All of my devices, note 3, note 10, PC, TV, tablet, anything that can connect to the internet have been getting frequent disconnections randomly. They often get disconnected at the same time, but sometimes, my PC can still work, but my phone doesn't. Or the TV can still run Youtube, but my phone or PC are disconnected. Usually when this happens, I'd have to disable and reenable my wifi to get a connection. On my phone, it
  18. I have a 1660 Super MSI Gaming X. The RGB light itself is fine, but if I set it to Rainbow mode on Mystic Light, All Sync, it changes color faster than my other RGB components. The other ones change color slowly while their lights stay on, but the GPU fades to black, then changes to a different color. If I change RGB for only the GPU, then its light doesn't fade to black, but its speed doesn't match the others. I guess what I'm trying to say is it doesn't sync as well. Yes, I did try different speed. All Sync is supposed to make all parts run at the same speed, but it doesn't. It's just someth
  19. OP, it's been 2 months since you made this thread, and according to you, you've had this issue for 3-4 months prior. So it's been almost half a year that you've been dealing with it. That's some patience right there. What you can do now is: - RMA the card and get another one and pray that it doesn't have the same issue. - Refund and get an NVIDIA card. This is a common issue for AMD's 5000 series GPUs. They currently have no fix in sight. - Wait and pray AMD releases an update that can fix this. My 5600 MSI X had the same problem so I returned it. Those hoops and dan
  20. Those are before tax. Probably gonna be at least 250-260 with tax. I think the least expensive model is Evga.
  21. I have to RMA my MSI X 5600 tomorrow, and I want to get an NVIDIA card right away since I won't be able to run my PC without a GPU. I have a 3600 CPU, that's why. I'm planning to get a 1660 Super MSI X from Bestbuy for $290 or so (after tax). That will save me about $40, more or less, instead of getting a 2060 EVGA which is the same price as the 5600. No, I am not getting another AMD card. I thought about getting the 2060 EVGA, but heard its fans are loud and it runs quite hot often. The other 2060 cards are out of my budget. I was already stepping a little out of my budget range,
  22. It's pretty luck-based, from what I can see. I heard about AMD cards having some sort of drivers issue, but didn't know how bad it was. I took a gamble and I lost. Even someone else who thought about switching to 5700 didn't know how widespread it is until I asked him to help troubleshoot. Think of it like this: 2 out of 5 people who eat this meal will die. It's cheap and delicious, though. Will you take the risk? I just hope it's not going to jeopardize my account after making 2-3 returns in a few weeks. Long story short, this wasn't something I expected to have to return.
  23. Well, that depends on how long someone intends to keep the card. If it's only two years, well, it's not gonna matter to him. People are still having to RMA their card and AMD officially acknowledge that they are still monitoring the issue. Which means they still have no clue on how to fix it. Which is shocking considering how long the 5700 and 5600 have been out by now. Neither. But what I am seeing is an AMD fanboy. The number of people who are still pissed off with the black screen crashes, random restarts, including me who is sending it back tomorrow, strongly disagree with
  24. I have 3600. So now we conclude it's the card and not the RAM or PSU? It's going back, regardless.
