    No contact names on incoming calls

    My Samsung Note 8 yesterday quit displaying my contacts names when I receive a call. I've tried rebooting and toggling "only display contacts w/ names" (was recommended from a Google search).

    Yet another advice thread...

    edit: Going with the Razer 2018. My only concern about the ASUS Zephyrus M is the battery. I travel back and forth to Nashville and it is about a 2.5 hour or so drive, depending on traffic. If I had to, normally don't, would it make it down there - web browsing. Not gaming in the car. The Razer...

    Light bleed?

    Is this normal light bleed for a 15" FHD 144Hz display? It's not mine, yet. I asked for a photo of the backlight and got this. It is a 2018 Razer Blade 15".

    No boot. Not enough power?

    My sons friend bought these components (I wasn't consulted) and once assembled it will power on but nothing will boot. Tried both display port and HDMI. Also tried the onboard HDMI. This PSU is rated at 500w and from the specs the GPU needs 400w and the CPU needs 65w. That leaves very little...

    Custom built my own desk...

    Some time back I went to Office Depot and bought one of those glass L-shaped desks. Initially it was OK but I ended up hating it. Shopping around I never really could find anything I liked that wasn't ridiculously expensive. Good Lord, office furniture gets crazy expensive if you do not want the...
