  1. Definitely BS. There's a lot of stores which use the name "Shopxxxxxxxxxxxx" with a bunch of random numbers for the x's. They're almost 100% bots.
  2. It's very likely dead. There's the baking method but it barely works and you need an oven you never use for food to do it.
  3. Former problem is a feature in the BIOS I think, and the connector you're holding is either for RGB or for the front panel, likely the latter if it's from your case.
  4. Any adapter would do. https://www.amazon.com/Moread-Gold-Plated-Projector-Chromebook-Raspberry/dp/B00SW9JI9A/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=hdmi+to+vga&qid=1610256956&sr=8-4 Something like this.
  5. I got scammed on eBay for an RX 480 4gb I bought for $80. The card is completely dead; no fan spin, no LEDs, computer doesn't POST with it installed. I'm already in the process of the chargeback to get my money back, but in the meantime I thought I could screw around with this thing and maybe bring it back to life. Unfortunately I can't do the infamous oven trick as I only have one oven and baking the GPU can spew some nasty fumes into it (bad idea for the oven I use almost daily for food). I have a $10 soldering kit (wee) and a $10 multimeter, and basically no experience with electronics
  6. Reseat the CPU, make sure the cooler isn't putting too much pressure on the CPU as well.
  7. More info? Specs of the whole PC? Repair steps already tried?
  8. There's millions of models of RAM, so of course they don't list every model as compatible. But it will work, DDR4 is DDR4. (no snarky comments about laptop DDR4 or LPDDR4X)
  9. You don't have integrated graphics... the 2600 lacks an iGPU.
  10. That's normal, it used to be for the -5V rail but it's never used in modern PCs.
  11. ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING | ROG Strix | Gaming Motherboards|ROG - Republic of Gamers|ROG USA (asus.com) Should've googled first. This is a pretty lazy question...
  12. Cooling pads do not work at all from my experience. The only benefit it's getting is just being slightly off the surface of the table so it gets a bit more air. Chances are you probably need to replace the thermal paste, and clean hair/dust from the fans.
