    ThinkPad Yoga 460 (20FY0002US) no video HDMI out

    I've tried both Windows 10 and Windows 7, blowing away the partitions and installing from scratch. This started with a powered USB-C hub for my Wacom Cintiq. It has HDMI to connect the Cintiq which is USB-C to the laptop which is HDMI. At first I thought I just blew out the drivers. Now I am...

    ThinkPad Yoga 460 (20FY0002US) no video HDMI out

    I've had my Yoga working almost flawlessly since purchase. I use a Wacom Cintiq without issue and our of no where, I get a black screen on display 2. I've tried multple displays and cables. I am aware converters do not work on this model so these are straight connections. I uninstalled drivers...

    Cleaning smudges off an LCD panel, not the glass.

    I sucked it up and bought the 70% alcohol. As long as you follow it with a dry microfiber it works pretty good mixing it with 50% distilled water.

    Cleaning smudges off an LCD panel, not the glass.

    Ok, I have some 90% but not the 70% kind. I guess I could water it down more.

    Cleaning smudges off an LCD panel, not the glass.

    Did you like make it yourself or store bought? I imagine it has to be diluted. You put that on the bare panel? Not the glass but the panel inside.

    Cleaning smudges off an LCD panel, not the glass.

    I was forced to dissemble a diplay to repair. Everything was going fine until I saw a smudge on the panel itself, I guess from moisture or finger prints. I tried cleaning with a micro fiber but it didnt work. I tried breath on it a little and that really made it worse! Anyway, I'd like to...

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    I am not at home but will check. I did leave the new 850W Thermaltake in there just to be sure. As for what I did to fix it, I just got lucky. Maybe It was the order of things but yanking the CMOS battery again brought it back to life. I have not even tried the old PSU in there again although...

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    So a very weird update. After pulling everything apart I had the CMOS battery out and put it back in again. This time the power came back on. I reconnected everything and its been fine for days. Maybe the old PSU was flaky? Maybe this board has some built in protection or something? I don't...

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    Yeah it sucks, I have a Zalman water cooler in there and everything and it was a pain in the ass to put in. I still have not gotten Gigabyte on the phone but I am sure its a dead board. Meanwhile, this thing never showed a sign of issue so that scares me.

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    In addition I also tried the big red PW_SW inside the case just in case it was the case.

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    Yeah, most of which you mentioned I have been doing. Since it was working fine I did not suspect a video card, short etc. Especially since even with all of that the led's should be lit on the board I would think. What a pain and I can't get Gigabyte on the phone. With Xmas it will take a...

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 dead already?

    I have had my rig since August. Everything has been fine, no OC and a nice Thermaltake 750 PSU. I went to turn on my PC and I got nothing. Naturally I switched cords, reseated cables and all that when I assumed my PSU died so I bought a new Thermaltake 850 PSU. I got it all hooked up and still...

    Temps too high Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH with Zalman CNPS20LQ

    I installed a Zalman CNPS20LQ on my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH and the temps are too high. I installed real temp to verify what the bios was telling me. I have dual fans on it and the pump plugged into sys fan 2. Cpu fan is plugged in as well. The hoses feel hot near the cpu but not near the...

    Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH and Zalman CNPS20LQ

    I recently got my GA-Z77X-UP5 TH all excited and started to build. It was suggested I get the Zalman CNPS20LQ. The board has capacitors right next to the CPU, I don't know if I am doing something wrong but it doesn't look like it will fit although it says it is made for a socket 1155. I have...

    Help me pick 32gb Ram and Heatsink for Z77X-UP5 TH and i7 3770k

    Hey everyone, I have my heart set on the Z77X-UP5 TH. I want to pair this up with 32GB of 1600 DDR3. I am concerned about the right ram and heatsink. I know some have had issues booting with 32gb and clearance depending on the ram. I am using this page from Newegg for choices Newegg.com -...

    Can someone explain the difference Intel Core i7-3770 or 3770k?

    Great, I imagine dedicated is less taxing overall anyway. Why dedicate any resourced to video when I have the card anyway right? Thanks.

    Can someone explain the difference Intel Core i7-3770 or 3770k?

    Great info. I would be pairing this up with a GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP5 /32gb DDR3 1600 I do not game on the PC. I have an older EVGA GeForce 8800GS 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 card I was going to use in that rig. Would it be better to use the CPU video or would the card be better...

    What about the integrated graphics? How does that work?

    Can someone explain the difference Intel Core i7-3770 or 3770k?

    Ok, I get it now. I have not had to build a PC in some time so I am at it again. When you say the board needs to support the unlocking what do they call that feature? The standard 3770 is locked @ 400mhz, nice.

    Can someone explain the difference Intel Core i7-3770 or 3770k?

    I am not sure I understand the difference. I see a lot more people taking the K variant but it looks like it is missing some features so I dont get it. Also, they CPUs have integrated graphics? As in you connect it and do not need a video card?

    Gigabyte Z77X-UP5 TH

    Curious to see if anyone is using 32GB 1600 DDR3 with this board. If so what brand DDR3 and cpu heatsink. Those Dim slots look really close to the cpu. Worried about clearance.

    Bad Q9650 or something else?

    Not sure what you mean by the 4 or 8 pin rails. Are you asking If my PSU has a 4 or 8 pin CPU connector?

    Bad Q9650 or something else?

    Thanks for the validation guys. I did boot with just the basics. I even took the board out and attached the heatsink so I would see those pins punch through for the stock heatsink (whoever designed those 775 heatkinks should be shot) Anyway, I called Gigabyte to make sure there wasnt some...

    Bad Q9650 or something else?

    *&%! I just put my E8400 in this new board and its acting fine. What do you guys think, are the power needs for the Q9650 that much different to suspect the PSU? I have only have one hard drive and one video card attached. Thats pretty much it. Im still thinking its a bad CPU.

    Gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3P motherboard

    Yeah I pretty much nixed the idea of the hybrid. Now I am looking at some of the other versions of the board. I dont need crossfire etc.

    Gigabyte EP45-UD3 models

    I know that part but looking at pics of the boards they are different. Im just wondering whatever they did to allow both DDR2 and DDR3 affects stability or performance.

    Gigabyte EP45-UD3 models

    The UD3R takes both DDR2 and DDR3 right? They dont appear to have the same layout. Could the UD3R be less stable or more picky with the RAM?

    Gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3P motherboard

    Sorry not to have read the entire thread, Has anyone compared the GA-EP45C-UD3R to the GA-EP45-UD3P? I know the ratings were lower for the GA-EP45C-UD3R but I dont need crossfire support. Are they performance wise the same board? It also looks like the GA-EP45-UD3P is a little more...

    Which Board for a Q9650

    I see the GA-EP45C-UD3R takes both DDR2 and DDR3. Not as high review though... Board layout it a little different too but gives you 6 Ram slots!

    Which Board for a Q9650

    My Abit ix38 bit the dust again so I need to replace it. My specs are below, I have about 3 SATA hardrives as well. Im not a big OC'er, only what I could by air. I was looking in a x48 board and saw the GIGABYTE GA-X48-DS5 but then I didnt realize they made the P45 boards now. Is there a...

    Abit RMA hell, please help choose replacement for ix38

    What bugs me is the downgrade. They told me I could wait for the same board but I am worried they pull the plug on RMA all together. Either that or they are playing games trying to get rid of inventory.

    Petition to keep ABit Motherboards Alive.

    I am stuck in the RMA process since 11/15. Trying to RMA an ix38. They dont have any to send me and are applying for some sort of comp which is most likely an IP35. The thing is, that was a lot cheaper in cost of a board so I dont feel it is a fair swap.
