  1. If you can stagger the spin-up of the HDDs, you should be fine. Just be aware that if the HDDs all start at the same time, the current may exceed the PSU rating briefly, and you may find some drives not available. If you have a UPS and won't be turning the system off very often, you'll probably be ok with the 250W, but check the 5V and 12V rail specs, and maybe do some testing. Don't rely on the total power ratings, as they don't apply on system start in many cases.
  2. I know the post is old ..
    But please can anyone help me? I have exactly the same problem and can not figure out how to fix it!

  3. Could be many things, but sometimes having this File Explorer option enabled can help:
  4. Sorry but this is a case of user error - or misunderstanding. If you are signed in to a service (ie, a token is kept locally), and you suddenly change IP address by connecting to a VPN, then that token is not valid for the new IP/location. Windows update works because it doesn't require you to be signed in to anything.
  5. Best ban PC gaming then. That truly has no output that is useful.
  6. Still "limping along" on a 1060 3GB here... so, you're fine. Can always upgrade when all the madness is over if you really want.
  7. Did it actually let you set a 128TB pagefile?
  8. Can you show us your pagefile settings? Press [Windows key] and R, and type in SystemPropertiesAdvanced with no spaces and hit enter. Click on Settings under the "Performance" header. Click the Advanced tab Under Virtual Memory, click on "Change..." Give us a screenshot of the resulting page Just close all the windows from above when you're done.
  9. lol have they somehow set the pagefile to be larger than the disk?! That'd explain the "out of memory" error
  10. Basically, yeah: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/compare.html?productIds=65719,65732 But it's a Xeon, so better silicon binning.
  11. Oh wow, that is outstanding for that price - I'd probably buy that even if I didn't need it...You were going to buy an SSD anyway, so no HDD is fine.
  12. As long as you de-clutter Windows 10, and remove all the bloatware, it should be fine. I still use an old Xeon X3360 (Q45 chipset) system for my admin/financial stuff with Win10 and Office 2016. Only an HD6450 for graphics, but even the on board Intel GMA graphics are fine.
  13. Seems a decent deal. i7 is obv nicer if you can fit it into your budget, but do NOT get an AMD FX era CPU, they are awful. If you're just doing office work and browsing, the built-in Intel GPU will be fine. You can always add a bigger GPU later, like the cheap 1030 option if you feel the i5/i7 GPU isn't cutting it. I don't see you have issues at 1080p though. SSD is a good idea - 240GB are around £30/$40 at the moment. I reckon one of those nice metal Kingston A400 ones will be great. PSU should be fine for adding a low power GPU - if you get a fanless 1030, it won't be drawin
  14. I use a solid metal one. Nice in summer, but on a winter morning, it's a sharp wake up that rivals a triple espresso.
  15. You could probably merge the downloading PC into the "new" one yes, but is an i7 setup not infinitely better than the A10-5800 one? I had that pre-ryzen CPU made of lies (it's dual core lying about being quad)...
