    Microphone stopped working in my android phone.

    Il try to clean the mainboard to see if it helps. All the cables look fine. I didn't think the mainboard could have been the issue. Thanks for the reply.

    Microphone stopped working in my android phone.

    Hello everyone, my phone is a Xaomi Redmi Note 8 and a couple of weeks ago the microphone for both the regular and speaker phone stopped working. I did a factory reset and took apart the phone and cleaned it out and cleaned the mic out and the issue didn't go away. I ordered a new mic and...

    Do I need to format drives if I move them to a new pc.

    I was planning on using the nvme as the boot drive and using my sata ssd and hdd's as storage. So that should be ok then, I shouldn't give up any performance?

    Do I need to format drives if I move them to a new pc.

    Hey guys, I just bought a new pc today, ryzen 2600, asus strix, 16 GB ddr4, 240 GB samsung m.2 nvme ssd etc. I plan on using my old ssd and hard drives as well and my question can I reuse them as is and not re install windows and just plug them and not lose data or performance? Thanks in advance.

    When will gpu prices return to normal.

    Hello everyone, So I am in the process of building a new system and I am looking to buy a new gpu as part as my new build but gpu prices right now are insane. I was thinking of getting an rtx 2070 used but the cheapest I have seen one on the used marked was still over $500. I probably...

    PC beeping while in Windows.

    So you are saying the beeping could be caused by a bad i/o controller on my external hdd? Other than finding a bios update that may fix it would be to stop using the drive? And as far as the fans are concerned they where all spinning. I will check temps and report back

    PC beeping while in Windows.

    Ok guys, so I have just experienced a very bizarre issue, I was using my computer and transferring some files to my external hard drive and all of a sudden my pc started just beeping. My pc ran perfectly fine but the beeping didn't stop until I rebooted. I have never heard of this or...

    System randomly won't boot unless I reseat the ram.

    Ok so I cleaned the ram modules and ram slots on the board, cleared cmos and reseated the power cables to the motherboard. System seems stable so far. I will report back if anything changes. I just need this PC to last me until spring time because I plan on doing a new build at that time, most...

    System randomly won't boot unless I reseat the ram.

    Here is the spec sheet for the ram that I have. http://vi.raptor.ebaydesc.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItemDescV4&item=284017432015&category=170083&pm=1&ds=0&t=1600724035135&cspheader=1 The issue is that I happens randomly. I can reboot my pc multiple times and it will fire up each time then the...

    System randomly won't boot unless I reseat the ram.

    So two times in the past couple of weeks my PC got stuck at the Bios splash screen and wouldn't go past it until I powered it down and reseated the ram. I am not sure what is causing this but its most likely an issue with the motherboard or ram itself. Strangely enough I ram memtest not long...

    Should I upgrade from my 2600k to a Ryzen 1600 AF?

    I doubt it will be unoptimized if Doom 2016 is any indication, since that one runs pretty good on ancient hardware, the pc I had when one that one came out only had a core 2 quad equivalent xeon at 3 ghz, a gtx 960 and 8 gb of ddr2 and it was able to run it at high 60 fps 1080p throughout most...

    Should I upgrade from my 2600k to a Ryzen 1600 AF?

    I don't doubt that about Doom E and Cyberpunk will be demanding games, but if as I can get 60 fps high settings at 1080p I'll be happy since I don't notice a big difference between high and ultra settings in most games. I was considering a gpu upgrade as well but the only two decent cards I...

    Should I upgrade from my 2600k to a Ryzen 1600 AF?

    I am since i average 60 fps in pretty much every game, but I the main reason I was considering upgrading is because I wanted to make sure my pc was strong enough to play Doom Eternal and Cyberpunk, but I think it should be able to, I don't see them being super demanding at least no more than say...

    Should I upgrade from my 2600k to a Ryzen 1600 AF?

    So after checking out some benchmarks comparing the 2600k to a ryzen 2600(which is basically a slightly faster 1600 af) I see the fps difference in most games is roughly 10 to 15 and this is with a higher end gpu such as 1080 ti or 2080 ti so the performance gain for my 1070 would most likely...

    Should I upgrade from my 2600k to a Ryzen 1600 AF?

    Gtx 1070 I don't plan on upgrading it anytime soon since it is still quite capable for 60 fps gaming. But I most likely will next year. Ok, I appreciate your reply, do you think my current system should last me at least another year? Ok, thanks for your input, I mostly use my pc for gaming...

    Should I upgrade from my 2600k to a Ryzen 1600 AF?

    Hey everyone, So I have been contemplating upgrading from my current cpu and motherboard setup which is an I7 2600k overclocked to 4.2 ghz(max stable overclock I can achieve) and an Asus p8p67 deluxe MB to a Ryzen 1600 AF and a solid b450 motherboard and 16 gb of ddr4 ram. The reason I am...

    Is 1.304 to 1.310 voltage safe for overclocking an I7 2600k?

    Ok thanks, I was using auto tuner to overclock previously but my OC became unstable. I am going to keep it as is for the time being. I might OC further in the future though.

    Is 1.304 to 1.310 voltage safe for overclocking an I7 2600k?

    Hello, I am currently my I7 2600k at 4.2 ghz with 1.3 voltage inside of the Bios. It seems to be stable. My question is this voltage safe? I have a screen shot from Cpu z attached with this post. Thank you.

    My cpu overclock is no longer stable

    This is most likely what I will do. My pc runs fine when everything is at stock and I dont really need to overclock my system right now, but if a game comes out that needs some more cpu power I would like to be able to. I plan on building a new system next year so I want to get at least one...

    My cpu overclock is no longer stable

    I apologise, I didn't see your full reply since I'm on mobile. I will try what you suggested when I have some free time. For now I am going to leave everything at stock but I plan to overclock sometime in the future.
