  1. I seen this on my google feed and thought I'd check into it. Maybe it can help a few folks here too. Should definitely do the trick on my wife's PC that's running Win10 and a GTX1050 GPU. I'm not seeing the same options on my PC that's running Win10 with Radeon Vega GPU, so maybe doesn't apply to AMD based rigs? https://ghacks.net/2020/07/03/why-you-may-want-to-enable-hardware-accelerated-gpu-scheduling-in-windows-10/amp/
  2. Reboot solved it and now have a new CPU wu running!
  3. Is there a way to force the client to re-attempt getting a new WU? I'm currently getting internet connection via wi-fi hotspot from my smartphone (I get unlimited service via U.S. Cellular). Hotspot turned off early this morning due to needing to update software on phone. Turned it back on and then the [email protected] client had trouble uploading finished work. It finally got the finished work uploaded but now trying to download new wu for at least 2 hours and just says download status. Client version 7.6.13 (I believe this is the newest client version) Thanks very much
  4. Thanks very much for the info!! I'll debate on what to do then. Also was considering just to build a new desktop. Really surprised by the performance of this Ryzen 5 and seeing the new B550 mobos coming out, thinking of working on a build based on one of those. Especially for [email protected], I've been netting almost 10k ppd on this lappy!!
  5. Running an HP Pavilion 15-cw1063wm with Ryzen 5-3500U, 8GB DDR4, 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD. I've noticed that everything seems to install on the SSD only (which, is filling up quick) and nothing seems to install to the HDD. Wondering if I have something set up wrong, or am I not utilizing the drives correctly? Never had a PC running the SSD/HDD combo before. I'm pretty sure the SSD is the NVMe type, so I should be able to upgrade it to a larger capacity drive... if mobo supports? I guess I was thinking that OS would be on the SSD and everything else would install to the HDD. I'll have to search it up and see what's best to do. Also trying to find what speed my current RAM is, thought I seen it somewhere in system information (Win 10 x64), there's only 1 stick installed and 2 total slots. Should be very easy to upgrade to a matched pair to get 16GB+ and possibly faster. System info reports that I have 8GB physically installed but only 5.92GB physically available. I assume the difference is due to shared RAM for GPU. Thanks much!
  6. Hey Tx, I know this is almost a year old thread... but wanted to give you a great big "THANKS VERY MUCH!!" for the suggestion of this app. Finally got things up and going with new lappy, found the SD card and ran it. Was able to save all 800+ pics and a few vids from the card even though it was pulled from a smashed phone and showed up as corrupted/unreadable by phones and lappy. Cheers
  7. I'm setting up FAH now (finally), not been on a PC in so long. Also last PC I had was running OpenSUSE, now running Win10. I'll try looking thru old emails if need be, but I assume that I'll still need certain account info for my FAH so that I'll get the proper points? Basically, I'm following the PC Matic page that says how to install. So the team number is there. But I honestly don't remember any login names or passwords I used for all that last time I had things up and running. *edit* I was indeed able to find the info I needed. It's all up and running now, hopefully start seeing some points posting again really soon!!
  8. Looks like M$ has now added Linux kernel to Win10. https://www-theverge-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2020/5/27/21271655/microsoft-windows-10-may-2020-update-download-available?amp_js_v=a3&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQFKAGwASA%3D#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theverge.com%2F2020%2F5%2F27%2F21271655%2Fmicrosoft-windows-10-may-2020-update-download-available
  9. I'll double check my lappy to see if this update is installed, but I haven't personally had any issues so far. I also noticed in Grinlers article there's details on removing said update and then reinstalling drivers... Specifically noting the mention of Intel drivers. Perhaps the problem is hitting Intel based machines more so? Nothing personal against Intel here (though my lappy runs a Ryzen 5 3500U with Vega graphics). Also going to check my fiancee's lappy to see if that's what been causing her issues with crashes during 3D rendering (Daz3D Studio). Her machine is running an Intel i5-8300H with nVidia GTX1050. We are getting back into the swing of things, even if on a slow boat! It does seem that M$ is working on an update to fix things. https://betanews.com/2020/05/25/windows-10-kb4556799-problems/
  10. Seems this could be a real problem for Win10 users. I'd assume that this update could be ignored (as in do not install), or if already installed just remove it so it won't cause these issues. Anyone have any problems with this one yet? Recommendations on how to resolve or avoid such problems? https://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2020/05/19/microsoft-windows-10-warning-crashes-bsod-chrome-browser-slowdown-gaming-problems-upgrade-windows-10-free/#482810637671
  11. Seen these articles on my Google feed (via Android smartphone [LG K8+]). This makes absolutely no sense at all to me. Why would anyone want to run Linux apps in Windows?? https://itsfoss.com/run-linux-apps-windows-wsl/ https://devblogs.microsoft.com/directx/directx-heart-linux/ Granted, my new lappy came running Win10... I can see keeping Windows for gaming maybe, but anything else is just so much smarter to do in Linux. Dual boot would cover bases for gaming and all. But if working with Linux programs, it's best to keep it in Linux! Thoughts? Opinions?
  12. Thanks Tx! Getting some Windows updates done now. Couldn't get an overdrive test to finish, it would go through the whole scan then have no results to show. Win10 sure is strange since the last Windows systems I ran were XP and 7. Then I had a desktop with 8.1 and switched it to opensuse.
  13. And finally got it!! Just need to finish setting everything up and get connected to internet. This one's got a Ryzen 5 3500U with Vega 8, 8GB DDR4, 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD!
  14. Hopefully I'll be receiving my new lappy tomorrow. It will be at least something until I can build a new desktop. FedEx delivery driver has had trouble finding my door it seems. First time I've had such a problem with getting a package from them.
