    Can't you just remove the edge shortcut and replace it with another browser?

    Cpu temp says 100 degrees in bios

    You know about entering a bios but not how to check if your CPU cooler is firmly attached? If it's a stock cooler you won't need anything special. If it's an aftermarket one you might need a screwdriver. Also make sure the CPU fan is plugged into the board.

    Is there something wrong with my pc?

    By looking at the ryzen master picture, it shows that your CPU is downclocking itself, which is good, it's what you want, but the voltage is still high at 1.33v. Even the green bar behind shows as an almost filled box. I don't have a ryzen so I can't tell ya if that's a normal voltage for...

    graphics card randomly spikes to 100% usage then crashes

    It worked fine for a week. Did you change something after a week? How often does this happen? I agree with Paganstomp. A fresh windows install is a surefire way of determining if it's a software or hardware issue. Really, you should have done that before buying more gear.

    NVIDIA Announces GeForce Ampere RTX 3000 Series Graphics Cards: Over 10000 CUDA Cores

    The 3070 matching or exceeding the 2080ti at less than half the price! That's a win in my book.

    Windows 10 stops my play/pause button from working if I have anything selected. Can I change this?

    I use the play/pause button on my keyboard all the time. Foobar is the only music program I use so I want it to always control that. The problem is, if I have anything selected, such as the recycle bin, the button doesn't work. If I have a video or music file selected, it will start playing...

    XMP disables c-states

    I didn't know this was a thing. Enabling XMP on my ram disables c-states 6 and 7 as part of it. From what I've read it's a motherboard bios thing and not related to the XMP profile. Using a b460 pro4.

    2 months in = dead

    This is just a rant. 2 months ago I bought a 1650 super gaming X. Yesterday I finished the build with a new power supply. (500w be quiet gold unit) Yesterday was spent installing windows 10 and trying to find my way around it. I was still using win7. Today I get up, watch some videos, go to the...

    Chrome randomly pegs CPU to 100% usage for 5 seconds when opening or closing a tab

    I checked firefox and edge. The problem is solely with chrome. I disabled all addons - problem persists. I want to say it started happening after upgrading my graphics card to a 1650 super. I installed new drivers for it, started getting weird issues such as display adapter stopped responding...

    H.266/VVC Officially Revealed, Same Quality As H.265/HEVC At Half The Bit-Rate

    Wow, very nice. I'm a heavy h.265 user. I try to get all my stuff in that format. Judging by the 4x increase in encode time from 264 to 265, I'm sure this will see a further 4x increase or more. It looks like threadripper has a purpose now. :)
