  1. It depends on what you expect from it. If you want to play any games more complicated then Minecraft, then yes, it is bad. But if you use it for productivity, browsing the internet and watching videos then it is not bad at all and should perform perfectly fine. If you don't already have an SSD, consider installing one for a very big speed boost. It won't help games run better, but it will make the rest of the system much more responsive. And also, as @ragnarok0273 above said, can you upgrade the RAM? Because 4 GB is a bit low and since the RAM is shared with
  2. Oooohhhhh HAHA yeah that makes a LOT more sense now. Don't worry, we all have our moments. It's okay. Just go to ASUS's support site for that board (the VII Hero X470 just making sure lol) and download the latest BIOS for that board and put it on a FAT32 formatted USB drive. Put the old 2000 series CPU in and update the BIOS, then swap the new 3000 series CPU in and everything should work perfectly.
  3. You could either pin that path as a quick access item, or add an alias or shortcut to it to the Desktop or Panel or something. Otherwise, you could also set it to auto-mount when the system boots and have it permanently mounted in the file manager. Unless you need more than that, of course. But most things can be done by using the terminal to mount the share automatically and maybe setting up scripts if you want to automatically sync files or something? But if that seems like too much of a nightmare, and gFTP works fine for now then maybe stick to using that if you're happy with it
  4. That doesn't sound right, your board is an X570 board, right? The Ryzen 3700X is supported from the first BIOS version. This whole thing is confusing me since it should just work. So basically we have: - ASUS X570 board that works with a Ryzen 2000 series CPU - That same ASUS X570 board does not work with a Ryzen 3000 series CPU - You exchanged the CPU for another and it still didn't work Correct? Even after updating the BIOS to the latest version it still doesn't work?
  5. OK that's great, hopefully it's just a drive because they aren't too expensive compared to some other components in a PC.
  6. Yes, Windows does this weird thing where the entire system locks up if it can't access a disk for some reason, even if it isn't the disk that Windows is installed to. For example, if I plug in a damaged USB flash drive into my system, Windows locks up, and nothing works when I click on things, as soon as I unplug the faulty USB drive, Windows suddenly opens everything I've clicked on and everything is back to normal.
  7. Are there any PC shops around that you could take your board to and have them test if a new generation CPU works in it?
  8. I'm not entirely sure to be honest. I can't say for sure whether it is the CPU or not. If both boards have been updated to the latest BIOS and they both don't boot with the new CPU then that usually means that the CPU is the problem.
  9. As @SignatureSigner above said, it might be a bad drive. I had a friend who had a damaged SSD witness the same behavior. I would start by trying to use Windows from a different drive. One other thing it could be is bad RAM, I would run memtest86 for at least an hour and check if there are any memory errors.
  10. I wouldn't bother changing the RAM since they are both set to run at 3200 MHz. This means that although the one kit is rated for a lower speed (3000 MHz) it is set to run at 3200 MHz (overclocked) therefore they should be running with the same memory performance.
  11. That is a very strange issue. I am starting to suspect that some other component is incompatible, such as your RAM or something. Have you tried using different RAM or a different graphics card? Or maybe just a single stick of RAM? You said that it can't be the CPU that's dead because you already returned one that was also dead, but I am starting to suspect that it is the CPU and if it doesn't POST in multiple motherboards with different RAM, then I highly suspect that it's the CPU.

    Windows reset

    Newer versions of Windows 10 have a built-in Reset functionality that you could try, but I actually don't recommend it. I recommend that you get a USB drive and use the Microsoft Media Creation Tool to download a fresh copy of the latest version of Windows 10 and make a bootable USB drive from it. You would then boot from the USB drive, choose Custom install and delete every partition from your main Windows drive in your system and install it to the Unallocated space. Please note: YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA BY DOING THIS (if you haven't backed up your files beforehand).
  13. I don't think that mouse has a very good tracking speed, meaning that the sensor is unable to track movement if you move the mouse too fast. If it does the same thing on another computer, or on another USB port, then I think the mouse sensor is poor quality.
  14. Oh no, that's not a very safe way to clean electronic equipment as a vacuum can create a lot of static electricity as dry air and dust flows very quickly over components and through the rough surface of the plastic vacuum pipe. It is highly recommended that you do not use a vacuum to clean any electronic equipment in the future, and instead use compressed air from a duster can (help upright to prevent liquid from spraying out). I wouldn't panic though, your PC seems to be working, and if it survives a short stress test then it will be fine. Just don't use a vacuum ever again. I've
