    [SOLVED] Acer Swift 3 SF314-52 or HP Pavilion 14 BP091?

    I feel you on that, but since it will be only for school use and minor youtube-watching, it will do with 14", but yeah, the extra memory and storage will be huge boosts for me, and all that for a mere $75 extra or so. I cannot complain on that. Done, thanks.

    [SOLVED] Acer Swift 3 SF314-52 or HP Pavilion 14 BP091?

    Ok, so all of a sudden, a very nice offer landed on my lap; $600 ($75 more than Swift and HP) for an ASUS Vivobook S405UA-BM188T with these specs: I believe i will be very happy with the buy. Thread solved.

    [SOLVED] Acer Swift 3 SF314-52 or HP Pavilion 14 BP091?

    no, unfortunately it is not. there is a similar model to that one, but it's priced about $450 more than the one's i mentioned, so that's overkill for my budget, sadly.

    [SOLVED] Acer Swift 3 SF314-52 or HP Pavilion 14 BP091?

    Pardon for the lack of information, but i will try to answer you as good as i can. as it turns out, i found another laptop that costs $125 LESS than the 2 I mentioned and in comparison, im questioning whether the Swift 3 and HP is worth those $125 or not; Acer Aspire ES1-433 (NX.GLLED.008) 14"...

    Memtest giving 500+ errors! Plus, memory_management bsod!

    It seems im able to get Kingston HyperX 2x8GB 2133mhz CL14 (HX421C14FBK2/16) for about $100 (used for only 3 months, working perfectly fine). Wouldn't that be a good deal for me with my current setup? I know i should go for CL15-sticks, but won't these HX-sticks do even better, or should i go...

    Memtest giving 500+ errors! Plus, memory_management bsod!

    I guess we can mark this one as "Solved" for now. I will send back my newly bought 2x4gb and just invest in some 16gb or 32gb (got a nice deal from a friend who is offering me that kit for $150, which i reckon is a good deal for 32gb, even if they are used for 4 months (i have bought several...

    After this much trouble, i will just go with matching 16-32gb sticks, return the new sticks i've got and try selling the old one's i've got.... :(

    Memtest giving 500+ errors! Plus, memory_management bsod!

    Hmmm. Yep... the sticks are incompatible. I tried combining all 4 sticks and it gave me a ton of errors already.. On a second note, here is my ram info when i start memtest, and these sticks do not seem to be the same after all (i just noticed this right now); https://ibb.co/dd1fNk Which is...

    Memtest giving 500+ errors! Plus, memory_management bsod!

    Ok, so, after some checking and memtesting, i can safely say that my leftmost stick seems to be broken or something. Try 1: i replaced my old sticks slots (slot 2 and 4) with my new sticks (2x4gb = 8gb in total installed). ran memtest of 10 loops. no errors. Try 2: i put my old sticks to slot 1...

    Memtest giving 500+ errors! Plus, memory_management bsod!

    Ok i will try doing so. Speed is 2133mhz and voltage 1.2, yes? And by resetting cmos, it means restoring bios to default values?
