  1. the ram wouldnt be the limiting factor initially tbh.... probably wouldnt pass tpm or cpu criteria to start with ( although theres ways around that)
  2. do not open the drive up. if its an external usb drive that is still spinning up, maybe try shucking the drive and putting it into a pc to see if it can be accessed. Then depending on the recovery software it may get recognised that way. does it spin up? clicking noise? etc etc
  3. check bios to see if the onboard gfx is on by default, set it to pcie if it is. . Once windows boots, install nvidia drivers for your card.
  4. yep.... adblocker and Pi-hole ftw!
  5. ahhhh adverts. the demise of any site. Super excessive having it appear on every page... wondered what the white box was. Next will be actively blocking the site until you turn your adblocker off......
  6. good luck Ghozer.. shame it came to this. I do feel moderation has been a little too zealous since the buyout.I had a post deleted after stating halfway through it that "non legit version of windows 7 updated to 10 just fine" .. that was it, gone. I wasnt saying how to do it, where to get it or anything like that, just answering a question... and Bam.... I'm apparently discussing illegal activities. Bit keen on the censorship there I thought.....
  7. I keep looking at upgrading but tbh, my rig is still playing all the AAA games with very few issues. Its only recently I have had a game simply not work due to the cpu ( Detroit Become Human) Mine is i5 4675k, 32gb of ddr3 ram and a RTX 2070super. I play all my games on a 65inch 4k tv at high to ultra settings without to many issues. ( i refuse to play at 1080p anymore.. its so blurry when compared to 4k! ) I get the odd stutter but not enough to justify a new rig. The biggest change you can make is the gfx card, ( which is its own issue in todays market! ) but thats where I would be starting.....
  8. I love aliexpress... spent waaaay to much money on there ( at leat 100 orders) but always do you due diligence. Had a 100% delivery success and with one order that I had an issue with, (cpu cooler with a 3 pin fan instead of a 4 pin) was refunded to the amount of a new fan within hours of submitting. Only negative is delivery time. Dont expect it to arrive in a week... For me in Australia its average between 2- 4 weeks. A little hint. Go browsing and add stuff to your cart but dont buy it. You get notification when its on sale and you can get a better price on it. ( aliexpress is ALWAYS having sales run) sometimes I have stuff sat in my cart for months and usually end up with a 30% off sale at some point!
  9. depends how complicated you want to make it. you can keep it simple by using a mobile or a gopro to record and some software to edit it such as premier pro, davici resolve etc.... you dont really need anything special to get started.
  10. https://www.codecademy.com/ is one I'm casually looking at.
  11. online.. www.thelinuxshop.co.uk As for the Op, you dont run linux within w10 ( yes I know you actually can but im pretty confident in this case that isnt whats needed) You need to boot to the live CD at startup of the machine. Usually keep spamming f8 until a boot list appears.
  12. it is indeed an option.... 3 bars top right> options> Privacy & Security and scroll a little down to find the cookies etc options.
  13. depends if it was set to do it at a quiet time... and without knowing what the 'jibbersh' is we can only speculate. If it had a little android displayed then rebuilt the apps.. it was an update.
  14. probably did an update but didnt have enough juice to power back up.
  15. just download the latest creation tool and update. no need for external media to load it onto first. ( theres always a risk with major updates but MS have got a lot better in that area of updating ) also once updated and everything running well, run the disk cleanup tool as an administrator and remove the old version of windows ( will free up 20gb or so) with the caveat that you cant roll it back once you do.
