Windows 10 and quick access new window issues

All of a sudden any folder I have pined in Explorer's "Quick Access" section any folder I try to look at opens a new window even with it set to open in same window. But if I open a shortcut or folder on desktop, it behaves the way it should, opening things in the same window. Its driving m...

Re: gigabit dropped to 100mb and don't know why

It either died, or there was a driver push in Win10 that dorked it up.

Boot to a linux live disk see if the speed comes back. If it does, something in Win10 has ya boofed, if it stayed the same its hardware.

Re: AOC G2460VQ6 Dying?

clicking noise sounds like a power issue that had on a Samsung monitor. The checkering sounds like a driver issue I had with an AMD APU.

I'd hit up the manufacturer see what they say, under a year should be able to RMA it.

Check the model number of your phone. If it supports Qualcomm quick charge 2.0 you are good to go.

Re: Fast Mobile Charging Motherboard

Could have sworn I replied to this once... anyhoo... Normal USB charging is something like 5v at 0.5amps, and fast charging is up to 12v at 3amps. If the device is setup for the fast charge, the charge circuit in the device is setup with a battery that can handle the faster charge rate.... unless yo...

Re: AM4?

I have a bad taste left from all the crap I went through with several A6 and A10 builds.

Maybe after they are out a year or so and I can see how the reliability is, I might consider them for shop PCs, but office and home is all Intel.

Re: Gigabyte Brix Gaming UHD Mini-PC Review

The driver disk is the one that gets me on stuff anymore. Most systems don't run optical drives, yet dam near everything comes with a disk. My favorite ones are the things that don't come with anything just a note that says to download the newest driver from their site. Sucks if you don't have a way...

Re: Raijintek Triton 280mm Coolant Problem!

from the sound of it its time to drain and clean the loop. The discoloration in the tube and "floaty" bits are buildup in the loop. Could be there was something not clean when the loop was filled, combined with plasticizer leaching from the tubing, throw in UV light and things can grow in ...

Re: GTX 1070 - no display

Borrow fingernail polish from a lady friend and coat the end of all the standoffs. Take care to keep it off the threads.

Works like the old school fiber washers that used to come with cases.

Re: GTX 1070 - no display

If its all in the case still, screw it down, and unhook the power/reset button wires. Try and start the system up by briefly bridging the power switch pins with a small screw driver/metal pin/paper clip... if it fires up, its in the case switches. Still no dice. Setup everything out of the case, I l...
