    Thank you early adopters, I can now search for a deal on a C9 instead. 55" kinda sucks, but I can move my desk back a bit from my wall mount....again.

    How to scriptably uninstall patches for Windows 10?

    The windows update platform already allows for update deployment, that's not the same as update removal. Changes get reversed by hotfixes in update deployment, not uninstallation.

    How to scriptably uninstall patches for Windows 10?

    A remote script to remove core components, like OS updates? Sounds like a major security vulnerability.

    Transferring Applications from Laptop SSD to a New PC Build

    The person said they want the PC nowm regardless of a baby coming. We don't the persons financial situation, they may have plenty to spare, but need to build now due to other factors. I tend not ot judge how people wish to spend their money. The best value right now is the 2060KO, for 1080/1440p...

    Don't know about Win10, but on Win7 I used a cheapo GPU (GT710) as a sound card by running it into my AVR. That was when nVidia had the "never clock down on multiple displays" issue.

    Transferring Applications from Laptop SSD to a New PC Build

    When a customer says, build me a PC, you don't tell them to wait. We don't know how much stock will be available, or when a 3060 will be released, it's vaporware. We also don't know if Ampere will be problem free, new process, new arch, new fabricator.

    Transferring Applications from Laptop SSD to a New PC Build

    Fixed. They are not in stock, and we don't know the street price or availability yet. We also don't know what the stuff below a 3070 will look like at all, and $500 is way more than a 2060KO..

    Ready made Windows 7 iso with SP1, USB3, NVME, and cumulative security roll-up slip-streamed?

    You can "tweak" a lot of problems away in Win10, and prevent updates, but it's an ongoing process once you allow updates, you have to check everyhting again. There are apps that do it for you, but Pro version is a must IMO, so you can disable auto updates from the start. I did a lot f research...

    Windows 10 hacked front and back

    Soon someone will require my PC to "wear a mask". All systems are vulnerable, just as every instittution is subject to criminals. You can play the game, but if they want what you have, nothing short of compartmentalization of assets (if they don't know you have what they want), and total...

    Sony X800H and HDR issue.

    More specifically, a certain game caled Need for Speed Heat keeps putting the TV into HDR mode, even though I have HDR in the game, on windows and on the TV all disabled. This results in a green and purple image of the game screens, and persists even after exiting the game, and only restarting...

    Trouble installing Windows 10 on a 2009 Acer Aspire laptop

    I had problems on older hardware with 3rd party USB 3.0 controllers and failing Win 10 installs. If the laptop has these, try disabling them in BIOS, and enable them after a successful install. Worked for me.

    Windows 10 May update version 2004 or 20H1

    Cortana is inegrated into the search capabilities, so it's never completely gone unless you get rid of search functionality in "add/remove windows features". I personally uninstalled the app store, nothing I have needed is unavailable outside it so far, though the nVidia control panel is not...

    Windows 10 May update version 2004 or 20H1

    I had to plan my install of Win 10 by making a rather large ist of things to do in order, before connecting the machine to the internet. But it's been a pretty smooth process and a stable experience for the most part, still on 1909. The only thing I have had a problem with is going to a 4k HDR...

    Do you use anti virus / anti trojan with Win 10?

    Win Defender and firewall are good enough for typical use. If you are going to be DLing and visiting suspicious sites and files, you should be using a "throwaway" install anyway, SSDs are cheap as hell.

    Are IRQ "conflicts" still a cause of concern with Windows 10?

    My first overclock was with dips. Rig failed to boot, even after resetting them, and I freaked. Luckily I had the mobo manual, and it taught me about resetting the CMOS in these situations. Stupid Slot A Athlon couldn't handle a 10% OC :), well not before getting gold fingered.

    Question regarding a clean install of Windows 10

    If you don't need the applications/ utilities included with some drivers, Windows defaults are usually fine. For things like GPU and sound, some network drivers, IRST etc, the apps/ config utilities are handy.

    All we need is an option to disable ABL and maybe they could limit it to certain low level of OLED level, they can even implement a warning that it voids your warranty or something. I like my displays to be around 120 nits, I doubt the ABL goes much lower than that, and I don't care about HDR...

    It's not giong to plumet much if at all. Take this from someone who has been buying used since the mining craze. 2080s will be out of stock fast when, or before 3080s hit the shelves, and the demand for used 2080s will spike. People like me make up the majority of the used market, and we are...

    VA has an actual gamma shift, OLED is a color or more acurately, white balance shift. All tech has some white uniformity issues, LED lighting having a major effect. Edge lit LED panels can be worse than OLED. Screen coating also has an effect. Sitting here in front of my Sony X800H, it has a...

    LG 48CX

    Do you have any examples of this. It does not make sense for it to occur on a pixel perfect display such as OLED. There is no backlight or polarizer to effect uniformity. No reviews have mentioned it. If you are experiencing this, I would have to say it's not the panel causing it. Unless you are...

    LG 48CX

    What gamma shift? The only issues for OLED I know of, are Auto Dimming, Burn in, and black to gray smearing/ artifacts. Would you be thinking QLED? That's still VA with gamma shift, though Sony and Samsung have new polarizers that help that quite a bit on some models.

    I thought you could turn off ABL now. That's a deal breaker for me. I can't stand the display jumping around, I need a static configuration. Damn it LG.

    Dual Boot Questions

    Just be sure to GRUB the number 2 drive, DO NOT put GRUB on the Windows drive, it will corrupt the windows boot loader. You have to install some drivers (ntfs-3g ) to mount NTFS in Linux, but yeah. Share Steam? Search "Symbolic Links". But some games may not work, and other issues possible.
