Start saving up for a starter. Have a hammer and jack in the car. When the start fails, whack it hard with a hammer for a minute. Then drive it home to replace the starter.
Don't whack it too hard, don't want to crack a pole or something. A good tap with the wooden handle will sometimes do the trick.

@Nordic @Canned Noodles @Kyan @remixedcat (almost forgot you were the one who made the comment about the speeds)

I figured out the wifi download issue on the Deck OLED, I had to follow this set of instructions from this guide on Reddit and it fixed it... now i am downloading on Deck OLED at 80 MB/s down.... so strange I had to go through all these steps to get it to work though

https://www.reddit.com/r/SteamDeck/comments/t50m80
1700808407581.png


whoever you are Emotion-Internal, thank you for your help!!!! Once I rebooted, it still didn't work, so I gave up, and turned off "limit download speed after turning it on for this 10,000,000 trick" rebooted again, and boom it worked. SO this guide didn't fix it for me, but in a round about way it did by accident. I have no idea what the hell... never had any issues like this on Deck LCD, so must be Deck OLED just having some kinks. Anyways all good now.

@Canned Noodles @onemanhitsquad do you find your Deck OLED's have a yellowish white point when at default color settings? It really irks me. It is not as easy to get a solid white point as it is on Deck LCD, the OLED is better overall of course don't get me wrong, just wish I could get that white point sorted out. 9000k seems to do the trick, but it messes up some consistency for me... Deck LCD was much easier to calibrate... or maybe I just got a bad OLED panel, I don't know, the yellowish tent bothers me though

I did do the Konsole command in Desktop mode and I have a Samsung OLED panel, there are two types you can get other company is like boe or something I don't remember.

edit: just realized this post was 6 months ago, so I guess it's not just a Deck OLED issue... huh... I wonder if I can increase my Deck LCD wifi speeds with this method... but I already get like 20-30 down on Deck LCD, so I doubt I see any gains, but who knows I might, worth a try. ding ding delayed light bulb moment :roll:

I also forgot to mention that one of the reasons I purchased the P600S is because it has no stupid tempered glass. THANK GOD.

Also, I pulled the trigger on the SHIFT 850W. It's arriving today so hopefully will be up and running by tomorrow!

Why replace Gentle Typhoons? I was under the impression they're still the gold standard for fans?

That's the "regular" P12s, I hear good things about their successors: P12 MAX....hailed as the best budget fan out there. Pretty tempted to get three or four of these. Wish they had daisy chain, but that will change the price of course.

They are still good. But I wanted all black 4-pins and those P12 are really silent with good cooling potential.
Also when I go water cooling again both the fans of the MoRa and the pc will be the same.

Well, these p12 were cheap for 5, have daisy chains, and work silently on the MoRa3.
The Max can do 3300rpm?! Lol, no thanks

Me either. I have a several 20+ year old cars, never had to replace one. It does happen though.

I had an old mark II Jetta during college and first job. I couldn't push start it since it was an automatic. The starter was located in a poor location right under the exhaust manifold. I noticed it going out over the course of a month because it wouldn't turn over when the engine was warm. Eventually it just didn't turn over at all. Stuck at work one night. Hitting it with a hammer did the trick.

Glad to see they're back on sale. For a moment everyone thought that they got discontinued.
got mine for 369€ that's 100€ less than the best sale ever recorded in my country.
