    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Rendered By Fan

    I like how it looks in pristine condition but how is it going to look with a layer of fine dust in all those black fins. I'm sure it will be expen$ive, so free maid service every six months should be included.

    How to find out how much RAM my laptop supports

    Assuming you have the latest/newest Bios then it is a X512DA.... (blah blah blah model specific) Even if it has only 1 slot, 16GB should work.

    How to find out how much RAM my laptop supports

    That max memory is not always true, many can take twice the amount specified.

    How to find out how much RAM my laptop supports

    Your model says 4GB soldered, If you have 8GB Total, the 1 available slot has a 4GB module for 8GB total. ( Your models says it accepts 4 + 8 =12GB) If I was in your shoes I would try to buy a single 16GB stick and see if it goes. (4 + 16 =20GB)...

    MSI 1080 ti possibly dying?

    Make sure that it's a non electrically conductive paste. (clean the chip area well to make sure you didn't cause a problem when you put the waterblock on) Don't mix paste with thermal tape, the grease eats the tape.

    MSI 1080 ti possibly dying?

    Does used mean a mining card? Is it the stock Bios for that card? Re-paste chip?

    External hard drive issue

    Do you think the OP should crack the external enclosure to access the drive directly, in hopes of getting at the files? (warranty as a non issue at this point?)

    ADATA Launches Swordfish and Falcon NVMe SSDs for Creators

    @W1zzard What would be nice is if the ADATA SSD Toolbox and Migration Utility would work on ADATA drives in an external enclosure. I am not poking at ADATA alone, other manufacturers like Crucial/Micron and Samsung have the same issue. If you want to upgrade the firmware prior to deployment...

    Any chance we will see Windows 10 2004 released today? Tuesday is usually the chosen day correct?

    It may not be in its complete polished form but you can get it now HERE: just be sure to force run the updates and patches, all of which I believe will auto update when the official release is made, without needing to wipe and redo. Current version with updates is up to: 19041.264...

    AC68U upgrading from old firmware Asus merlin 380.64 (help needed)

    Make sure BOTH units are on the same firmware. 1st in Router mode 2nd in AiMesh mode. Setup first one the way you like it, save settings and import them to second one. (this is for twin models only) Once you click the 2nd one in AiMesh mode, the routers will adjust on their own. Some complain...

    AC68U upgrading from old firmware Asus merlin 380.64 (help needed)

    Just found this in post #89 *You can check your current partition size using the command: df -h admin@RT-AC68U:/tmp/home/root# df -h If you have a 32MB partition, jffs will also be around 32MB. If you have upgraded to 64MB, jffs will show something closer to 64MB. Note in Lazymocha's Guide...

    AC68U upgrading from old firmware Asus merlin 380.64 (help needed)

    look at post #39 2nd section regarding how using older firmware was used to do the expansion. Do you remember this??? I don't know the putty command to look this up directly. SEE Post #12 below. I'm assuming you did this first go around but if 384.3 does not flash then this might be the...

    AC68U upgrading from old firmware Asus merlin 380.64 (help needed)

    GREAT! So I'm assuming (be careful here) that the nvram was expanded from 32 to 64. Try flashing your 384.3 then do 384.5 (that's the split line when ASUS put a code lock on 384.6 and up.) I'm having you creep up so we can see if there are any problems When you flash the 384.5 put a check in...

    Dead HP all-in-one

    Why is the memory in B slot? I assume the barrel port does not have any broken solder joints? Do any of those caps look like they are lifting off the board from the bottom? Did you check the blue jumper under the coin cell for being intact? Have seen jumpers break inside, metal fatigue /...

    Broadcom onboard network failure and troubleshooting

    I don't disagree but it could be a borked install (a new fresh install of W10 would rule out corruption and confirm burned NIC) or it could be a corruption on HDD or SSD. Needle in a haystack from so far away. Ubuntu : https://ubuntu.com/tutorials/try-ubuntu-before-you-install#1-getting-started
