  1. Could also be your monitor cable. Reseat it or test another one.
  2. Windows 10 32-bit would of been fine from a performance standpoint. Did you try 64 bit or 32 bit?
  3. I am selling a Ryzen 5 1600X build if you're interested (brand new, awaiting its first owner). I have it here at the AMD forums: https://community.amd.com/thread/216400 PM if interested and we can talk more.
  4. Are you using AD? If so, its just a matter of setting what user has access to it. If you want to simply share a folder that everyone can read/write to it, you have to the the Share and NTFS (security tab) permissions to "everyone" and have full access. Keep in mind this is "insecure" since everybody can access the share and make changes to it.
  5. I am going to suggest something different that may cater to your needs just for the fact that I personally don't like dual boot. Get Windows 10 Pro, install Hyper-V (free), and virtualize your Linux Mint instance on Hyper-V. This way you don't have to keep rebooting and switching. You can have all your games on Windows 10, and whatever it is that you do on Linux you can do on the VM. This means your c:\ drive (SSD) can be strictly for Windows, and everything else on your terabyte drive. If you really must have Linux on your host, I am not sure if you would like this idea. My 2 cents.
  6. Hey everyone, Been a cool minute since I posted here. I have a question about technology events like CES, Computex, etc. Where can I find information on all big technology events? I would really like to go, but I just don't know where to look online, or have any information to these big events. Any help is appreciated, and my apologies if this is on the wrong thread. Thanks.
  7. Oh yeah, and of course, a good proc for gaming.
  8. I've never done any virtualization before, so I just want to set it up to "play" and experiment with. I've seen and been told that I can use Hyper-V with Windows 8.1, or maybe even Windows 9. I do not plan on hosting anything being that this will be my new PC.
  9. Hey everyone, It's been a while since I posted here. I've been recently in the market for a new build, but I wasn't sure what to get exactly. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to attend the 30 year anniversary AMD Gaming convention here in Austin, and so they gifted me an AMD Radeon R9 290! Shout to to AMD for making such a great event, and giving out such an awesome gift! I am looking for a new PC that will handle virtualization such as Hyper-V. Question is, how much RAM, what kind of processor and motherboard will I be looking at? I want to stay with AMD if I can for the proc. Budget is around $500 since I already got the video card , but I am flexible. I am a bit washed up as I have not been keeping up with the latest and greatest, so any sense of direction will be highly appreciated, as well as any personal opinion.
  10. Submitted my entry - good luck everyone! Thank you Bosco and all the sponsors for making this happen!

  12. Thanks for the responses. It appears that it has gotten A LOT better now that I have done the Windows update, and chipset drivers from Gigabyte.
  13. Hey Everyone, I have been running a 128GB SSD from OCZ from sometime now with the SATA operation on IDE. I have seen that in order to get the full performance of the SSD, it needs to be set to AHCI. I went ahead and set it to AHCI, booted from the Windows disk and deleted the partition, and then installed on there. To re-install, it took a lot longer than it usually would, but when I was finally able to get to the desktop, it appeared to respond much faster, especially shutting down/restarting. My problem is when starting Windows. It takes a REALLY long time now just to boot up. The "Starting Windows" screen appears with the colored Microsoft flag, and it hangs there for about a minute before the log in screen. After that, super high speed SSD goodnes. Anything I might be missing here, or why it's taking a long time to boot up? Also, when I switched it to AHCI, I now get another screen after the Gigabyte splash screen that says AHCI driver loading or something, and it shows all the drives connected to the system. Makes the POST process longer, but is this normal? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H SDD: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-128G 128GB Solid State Drive
  14. Oh wow, that 7950 is not bad at all. Thanks everyone for your advice!
