    Well, to complicate matters even further it seems that the HP approved 8GB stick part number 820570-005 is impossible to search for on HP's own site because is a blank webpage in all browsers except Internet Explorer 11. Seriously?! What the heck?! Then this website wants to...

    2 sodimm slots but can only use one stick of ram

    2 sodimm slots but can only use one stick of ram

    I seem to have an unusual HP laptop but I'm not sure if something is broken or if this is just some weird crap that HP does. I just got two matching sticks of ram, 2x8GB 2400MHz 17-17-17-39 1.2V, xmp/docp is not necessary for these sticks. The board has two sodimm slots but it will only boot up...

    The Anti-Cheat System Is Broken in Battlefield V

    These days there are mods to make games like this run in extremely low graphics mode, basically it makes the game look like Fortnite on a phone. That lets you see through things because those things aren't even there with the hack on.

    The Anti-Cheat System Is Broken in Battlefield V

    I didn't get this game because EA are pushing rapid release schedules now. That means EA is going to abandon the game and not provide fixes. Activision does the same thing with COD. They rush to patch stuff right after launch then a short time later it's abandoned.
