    Worth Upgrading?

    The ROG swift is definitely out of the budget. I was looking around 250 USD and I think the Benq I linked in the original post seems to be the best monitor at that price point from the research, unless anyone can show me one Ive missed.

    Worth Upgrading?

    I use my PC mainly for gaming. Are the colors on these faster TN panels total garbage? Or are the "acceptable" for a non photo editor? Would the colors be same, better or worse than the panel I'm currently using? If its same or better I think I'd go for the upgrade

    Worth Upgrading?

    I've been hearing a lot online lately about how people really love these high refresh rate monitors, and how smooth everything is. I've been curious about upgrading my older monitor, but I'm not sure if the difference would be worth it. I'm looking at this monitor after shopping around for a...

    PC Restarts when shut down via IR Remote

    I disabled the ability for the network card to wake the machine in device manager, no dice. This seems to work yes. I can shut down with the button inside WMC. However I still have to get up and go to the machine because it says "These apps are preventing shutdown" and it lists WMC. Pressing...

    PC Restarts when shut down via IR Remote

    So my PC isn't strictly a HTPC but I've got a TV tuner with remote that I use with Windows Media Center in it so I hope this is the right section. I'm having a problem with shutting down the computer with the power button that's on the remote. I often want to just power the machine down when I'm...

    Slow SSD boot?

    I don't mean to thread necro but I wanted to post an update. I swapped to a Samsung 840 Evo and I got windows installed with UEFI and secure boot enabled and the boot times off the hybrid boot are around 2-3 seconds like the laptop and this seems to have fixed whatever the issue was.

    Slow SSD boot?

    I found it was actually installed in Legacy mode, I could reinstall to UEFI mode soon. The slow part is when the windows logo appears. I ran ASSD and atto with the intel RST drivers uninstalled and on the MS driver and I got worse results (specifically on the 4K and 4K-64Thrd in ASSD) on the...

    Slow SSD boot?

    I can not get it to create an event 100. Who knows, I'm not really worried about the laptop right now anyway. So anyway, when I get back home tomorow I'm going to check if Windows on the desktop is installed in UEFI mode. I found this guide on the net

    Slow SSD boot?

    Isn't that the Hybrid shutdown is supposed to do? It uses the hybrid file for a faster shutdow. I only use the shutdown command and my laptop hasn't had Event 100 since December 28th. (I use it daily for school) There are resume times from when I woke it up from idle and those are like 600 ms...

    Slow SSD boot?

    I'll look into doing this soon. So with the hybrid shutdown in Win8.1 my laptop is reporting a resume duration of 3304ms, and doesn't seem to create Event 100, but instead event 300 Standby Incident Time (UTC) : ‎2014‎-‎02‎-‎09T02:39:29.598561400Z...

    Slow SSD boot?

    I'll go make sure that Full Secure Boot is enabled. And I meant yes, it is disabled. My signature build is very out of date. My newer specs are listed above in the thread.

    Slow SSD boot?

    Yes, I do. Alright, well this is acceptable. I just wanted to make sure everything is going normal. This is my first experience with SSDs, and I haven't built a system since my Core2Quad I just upgraded from, so I'm a little out of the loop on this stuff. Thanks for the help! :)

    Slow SSD boot?

    I have the RAM at 1600 Mhz. The laptop and desktop both have 8GB. I had the other drives hooked up when I installed windows but they are purely storage drives, and unhooking doesn't affect the boot time. The swap file is auto I guess? Its all on default on both machines. The hybrid boot is...

    Slow SSD boot?

    I'm using the Intel rapid storage drivers. I tried moving the hard drives to I think the Asrock? or some other vendors controller but it didn't make a difference. EDIT: I was under the impression that the intel drivers were better than the Microsoft stock drivers, is it worth trying to revert...
