    PC bought on eBay not working no lights nothing.

    Still unsure if OP is planning on buying a tape gun, need more info on that... :D

    AMD Radeon RX 6400

    OK, market analysis time. I'll keep it about the 6400 as to not wander off topic: The most popular model I could find is the AsRock Challenger ITX. Prices are in the $200-260 range for it (standard 20% VAT included), most often around ~$210. Every shop I checked out claimed they have stock...

    AMD Radeon RX 6400

    Go for it. It's xkcd that should take the credit anyway. Just try not to do as is shown :) Fair enough. I feel obliged to say this, because I saw you bring up this argument a few times: You should feel blessed that you have that option! I just checked my local used ads (in Bulgaria) and the...

    AMD Radeon RX 6400

    Oh my, I think I can physically feel the pain... And speaking of pain -- I glanced over the last few pages of this thread and all I could think of was this eternally relevant comic: I don't get it. Why would you use two wildly different PCs for comparing two different cards? Why cripple one...

    AMD Radeon RX 6400

    There are no bad graphics cards, guys. Just badly priced ones :) And even badly priced, this will probably be the weapon of choice for countless uncles across the globe when they consider turning their 12-year-old nephews' SFF school homework PCs into Fortnite gamers. I mean, what are you going...

    Need ideas on how to re-zombify a laptop

    Yeah, I ordered a similar one before even making the thread just to be on the safe side :) Indeed. Booting from Ubuntu and handling the HDD from there works fine, from what I could tell. Not like I was planning on taking out the HDD, anyway, if I were to permaboot off USB. However, thinking...

    My Lenovo laptop is cursed and i don't know what to do.

    If the laptop is indeed cursed, I'd suggest that a proper exorcism is in order... Sorry, couldn't resist :D Jokes aside, I see it's a Lenovo. I'm not that big on laptops, but a friend of mine who has been using only IBM/Lenovo for the last 15 years said his latest one is so poorly built that...

    Need ideas on how to re-zombify a laptop

    I'm pretty sure this old thing is running on ye olde BIOS. The battery part was interesting though, as I just noticed after taking out the battery and running off mains power and putting it back in that the settings have reset. That might be worth looking into. As for memory, I recall running...

    Need ideas on how to re-zombify a laptop

    Paid about $40 in today's exchange rates, used, which was borderline egregious in my book, but still less than the whole thing cost used then. I shopped on my local used market, didn't want to deal with ebay. As far as selling or binning - I could theoretically part it, list it locally (for my...

    Need ideas on how to re-zombify a laptop

    It's gonna be a fairly long one, so tl;dr for the lazy: old water-damaged long ago laptop suddenly won't boot from SATA, boots fine from USB, have ideas but need more :) Years ago I received this old Acer Aspire AS 1410 as non-working gift with supposed water damage - owner couldn't recall...

    GTA 6 is "Well Underway", Confirms Developer Rockstar Games

    I think you misunderstood me. Let me try again: I have little reason to think the game won't be technically sound. What worries me is T2/R*'s recent business direction.

    GTA 6 is "Well Underway", Confirms Developer Rockstar Games

    Whatever they release at this point is guaranteed to fall short of expectations. I know most of you around here won't care as much, but there are people out there that are so hyped that they'll be outraged because they won't be able to customise the color of their farts in the game or that a...

    Technical Issues - TPU Main Site & Forum (2022)

    Yes, I used a rough figure while adding mobile as a further argument below. Okay, I have an idea. Expect some feedback later today.

    Technical Issues - TPU Main Site & Forum (2022)

    I already said it's only a problem on mobile. And while you say you haven't been able to reproduce it, I've got 100% success in 4 out of 4 mobile devices. Why should your experience outweigh mine? Yes, the site probably has a lot of traffic. But let's think about it -- how many people run...

    As much as I appreciate your input and I don't mean to offend you, I feel obliged to say that you're being unnecessarily absolute in your claims. Also, @windwhirl already said he successfully broke it. It's not sokething unique to me. I already said that add-ons being present or absent makes...
