  1. We got Xfinity gigabit internet setup, using their supplied xFi gateway. Speed tests will report anywhere from 0.5Mbps to 475Mbps down speed. We have 2 laptops connected via ethernet cables. Both laptops have Realtek Gbe family network ports. I've already called for a signal reset and that didn't seem to change anything. Their modem diagnostic test reports that everything is functioning correctly. Even websites like here on PC Matic forum takes quite a bit of time to load, almost as if the connection is dropped then reconnected again. Is it possible the xFi gateway needs a firmware
  2. Been away for a short while due to some setbacks and not having an internet connection. We now have a new internet connection and I've got my system all updated and [email protected] client up and running again! How's everyone else doing?
  3. Dell machines use very specific designed motherboards, probably nothing much else would fit in there without a ton of modification to the case and all. Best use for it? Turn it into a custom router for insane internet speeds!
  4. Anything specific that would cause a portrait photo to upload and display as a landscape photo? So basically it's being displayed rotated 90 degrees clockwise. I've tried different browsers, clearing system cache, ran CCleaner, checked to be sure the photos display correctly on my laptop. Nothing seems to change the outcome of the upload and the photos just keep showing rotated on the website I'm adding them to.
  5. Yes sir, I am one happy camper!
  6. Finally got a test to run to completion and show results. I'm sure not complaining on this one!! http://www.pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp?conid=26088799
  7. I now have Windows Defender blocking me from installing CCleaner and won't allow me to run Malwarebytes, claiming they are PUA's. I'll have to get a better virus protection on here I guess. HP loves to setup their machines with McAfee Live, but I hate that program and refuse to pay for it since the trial is run out. I do remember in the past I've run Avira and AVG on some older (Pentium 4) machines in WinXP. Any good recommendation? I think so far the only thing I really truly hate in regards to Win10 is that it seems to keep wanting to push M$ products on my and almost demands tha
  8. Read an article on Forbes yesterday that really makes me think about ditching Windows altogether again. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2020/07/26/system76-reveals-an-open-source-surprise-for-amd-ryzen-fans/#4d97774f6e4e Sounds like a good deal to me for sure, and I'm sure much less bugs and problems that cause headaches. I've always said I'd choose open source over any other option. Think this is the site to get it. May prep up some USB drives to make a bootable and see how it goes. https://system76.com/
  9. Today (so far) I had 2 CPU and 1 GPU WUs finish up. On my client it said I'd get 70k for the GPU one. Well I'm seeing on the [ExtremeOverclocking] site that I didn't get anywhere near that for actual credit. Looks like 2,225 points at 6am, 123 points at 9am, 2,391 points at 3pm. Definitely seems there is some sort of problem. And pretty sure the GPU scheduling is not an option for me since my machine is running a Ryzen 5 3500u with Radeon Vega 8 graphics, that option is only available on NVidia GPUs at the moment. Could be issues due to some Windows updates (Version 2004 speci
  10. I'm running client 7.6.13 on Win10 2004 (no skipped updates), my client just randomly stopped running with no errors and for no apparent reason. Get it to start back up and it continues CPU wu just fine, but threw away good GPU wu at around 92% complete and now downloading a new one. Just lost out on ~70k points! Is there a newer client I should use? Or an older one? Issues with Windows bugs?
  11. Happiest of birthdays to you, Guns! Hope you have a great one!
  12. Alcatel phone on AT&T prepaid. Trying to install any app via play store (Android phone) it will just say waiting for download, get to 100% downloaded and then just start trying to download again. It won't ever try to install. There's plenty of storage space available, or at least should be since many apps have been removed and not much else installed besides for Android system. I believe the phone has built in 8GB or 16GB of storage and we even put in a 16GB micro SD. Any suggestions?
  13. HP just put a new updated driver on their site, installed it and so far seems to have solved the issue.
  14. HP Pavilion laptop, Ryzen 5 3500U w/ Vega 8 graphics, 8GB DDR4, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD, B&O audio (device manager shows Realtek + AMD HD audio devices) Running Win10 2004 Volume at 100% it will be very loud for 1 second then just drop off as if muted. Not seeing any updates or newer drivers available at the moment. The problem occurs via built in speakers and headphones, so seems to be system wide. I'll check recent updates already installed, there was an HP one about a week ago that said something about audio port so it may be the culprit. Any other ideas what to
  15. 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/
  16. Reboot solved it and now have a new CPU wu running!
  17. 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
  18. 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!!
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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,
  22. 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
  23. 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 ru
  24. 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
