    I'll be grateful if you can help me with this noisy symptom. HP printer driver installation.

    if ou physically wake up the printer, does the printer icon become not greyed out?

    Mind giving me some expert eyes before i pull the trigger on this build?

    I think all of it looks good. The PSU is fine and gives you some headroom. The SSD is actually well reviewed and a good choice for the price. All around thats a great 1440p gaming setup, and might run 4k with some titles.

    Someone talk me out of getting 64 gigs of memory......

    RAM was insanely cheap for a while. WEnt with 64 gigs of ddr5. I've never seen usage above 30 gb. But I also do not track the usage, and only noticed when I looked. I still would build with 64 gigs now if I were doing it and ram was cheap.

    How loud is 4080 or 4090 FE?

    Going small / SFF with large power hungry hot GPU's will most certainly be loud. This newest gen dumps out heat and is very loud. Also the coolers are MASSIVE right now. If you are looking for a quiet build a larger build will be easier to tame.

    I want to make my photography a full time job

    Actually many of those require advance degrees, time in the field, regulations and standardized licensing and testing, and so on. Wanting to be something then achieving that, in those cases does mean you have met a minimum standard. Which is much more than I can say for many people in the...

    Scorching HOT ---------> XFX Speedster SWFT319 ,Radeon™ RX 6800 $429.99 on Amazon

    That's a good choice. It is a upgrade and should be hitting around the 375 mark I would imagine during the holiday deals.

    Scorching HOT ---------> XFX Speedster SWFT319 ,Radeon™ RX 6800 $429.99 on Amazon

    6800's have been reasonably cheaper recently multiple times. A few 6800xt's hit the 430 mark also. If you need something today this is a decent deal. If you can wait I would. This isn't a scorching deal imo.

    What card next for a severely limited budget?

    Honestly considering what your card is going for used, you aren't likely to find anything that would be a cheap upgrade that would be noticeable if you game at 1440/4k. I would hold on to your 3070 for another generation and see where you are.

    OP - have you tried to microwave it? That almost solved a problem with a GPU, may work for an entire computer?

    Sapphire Radeon RX 6700 10GB - $223 at Amazon

    actually most of these are setup to adjust price according to stock available. Someone doesn't sit behind a keyboard and mastermind a plot to make $10 off slow clicking individuals... the conspiracy just is not real. Truth it, it is almost always automated. They set pricing curves based on...

    EVGA 3080 ti failure troublshooting

    There were issues sopecifically with 850 watt evga units and 3090's from the power draw. It was specifically evga 850 units but I do not have the model handy. And that 10 year warranty is now garbage. Put the PSU in a less powerful machine and buy a nice newer power supply from a company that...

    Budget-ish card to pair with Ryzen 5 7600x

    I've been using a 6800xt since launch with no issues. I play at 4k, sometimes at 1440. You should be happy with it. Best value currently imo.

    ASUS GPU's cost more then alternatives

    Generally speaking a high quality PSU like the one you are purchasing eliminates much of the coil whine issues. The other element is generally the quality of the electrical wiring in the house. If you have not had a coil whine issue yet and you've had high end GPU's, chances are you will be fine.

    Diablo IV - The Real Official Thread

    Seriously for me the constant changes make it feel almost unstable. Everytime I have a "plan" of any sort, something changes before I can spend the time making it happen. Is it normal for Blizzard to knee jerk weekly like this? Makes it very hard for me to enjoy this.

    BattleBit Remastered

    I actually refunded this. It was my second refund in 15 years. The hype was real. The game play was stale. When it hits $5 I’d bite if it was still active.

    Have you tried to microwave it yet? I saw a thread here about a malfunctioning video card and that seemed to have worked or was suggested. I think the cpu and ram were also mentioned in that thread?

    EVGA going officially under?

    Because retirement sounded better? I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who viewed all of this as a way to exit stage left. Lots of companies were dealing with increased cost at the time, and I’m sure nvidia has not changed its tactics much in the past decade or so. But maybe it all happened the way...

    Hitachi SATA 60GB will not boot - suspect MBR damaged.

    If the drive is fully functional you can usually use a windows installation disk, or a drive with the repair tool on it that is bootable and tailored to that OS. If you have access to the drive you should be able to determine exactly which version of windows is on it.

    Using USB hard drive for Cloud storage

    If OP wants the functionality, does it matter what tool he uses if in the end it’s reliable and stable? He is better off running a router separately from a NAS. The NAS can very easily do exactly what he is asking along with providing many benefits. As stated above. It will all depend on his...

    Using USB hard drive for Cloud storage

    I would personally utilize something like a Synology NAS for that. A bit better hardware, not overly expensive compared to enterprise grade gear, and security is much better than a consumer grade router. Plus you get the added reliability of a hard drive array vs a USB interface device. And...

    Diablo IV - The Real Official Thread

    Oddly I have left the game twice in the last few days only to logon and find recent checkpoints unchecked, a stronghold not saved (that was completed prior) and some gear back in my inventory I had sold or broken down. Happened to me twice. So something is up with the server save state system...

    Diablo IV - The Real Official Thread

    35 I suppose may be an overestimation. Regardless I have never been AFK, and have never just grinded mobs randomly. Either way I am rather enjoying the game. I doubt I'd put any grind like hours into this game, let alone any game anymore.

    Diablo IV - The Real Official Thread

    I put maybe Approx 35 hours into this and I am only at level 43 with a druid. I have no idea how much time you'd have to sink into this game to complain about lack of content this close the game release. For reference I still have at least 50% of the map to discover. I have done no side...

    Is there ever a reason to re-apply fresh thermal paste after a few years?

    It isn’t going to hurt anything if done properly. Depends mostly on the TIM. Some dry out faster than others.

    Can edge really be uninstalled from Win 11?

    Ignore it as others have said. You will break things be deleting it entirely. It’s very embedded in the OS, and does not easily allow you to replace the default functionality with another browser.

    Any reason you can't just make a free bootable DVD using the media creator direct from microsoft? You have the option to install it to USB or DVD, just an option.
