    Awesome information you have there sygnus21 i have some follow up questions though so for example I have an average grade graphics card yet it is Dx11 capable would I benefit running programs on dx11 or make the card suffer more than runnning it on dx9?

    How often should a laptops cooling fan kick on?

    Apologies, I may have used the wrong description for it. what I meant was, as to my observations on my notebook, the fans only go all out after exiting a game or some heavy work load.

    Solved DirectX 9 to DirectX 11 : Which runs better?

    Some of the games I have seen have the options to select which one to use, dx9 or 10 or 11. Honestly, I have just a little approximate knowledge of what these do most of them from experience. - dx9 runs smoother (just for me i suppose) - dx10 just adds shinys and i did not really use it. for...

    How often should a laptops cooling fan kick on?

    I've got the same questions before though my fan speeds always maintain a steady speed when in mid 50 degrees C I also noticed that fans rev like crazy after playing a relatively heavy game. so I guess the fans just maintain a safe temp while under load then cool the hardware down after, for...

    Solved Fan speed locked at 35%

    yeah I have that one, too when I start a game the fan speed registers at around 500-1800 rpm then at 60 degrees and above it throttles down is it okay to tinker with the fan speeds? EDIT: I guess it tries to maintain 65 degrees? i noticed the fans speed up if the temp goes up 65 is that...

    Solved Fan speed locked at 35%

    I was about to do that. The weird thing is when I booted up just a moment ago, the context menu is back and I don't know how it got fixed. :O EDIT: So if people have this same problem I have one solution although it is more time consuming and not entirely guaranteed to fix the missing context...

    Solved AMD Catalyst Control Center Context Menu is Missing

    So last night I was up wondering if the new versions of amd drivers will work on my laptop unfortunately it was a very bad decision and I was wrong and it keeps detecting HD8530M as R5 240M so I rolled back and to my surprise I also overwritten the CCC from the previous installation I sort of...

    Reformatting a PC through USB device or LAN

    I see, that's a very helpful tip you got there. Thank you very much! The USB boot issue is still not resolved, but I got a workaround by plugging the hard drive to my cousin's mobo with a dvd drive. Do I have to upgrade the BIOS in order to gain access to USB boot option? No matter how hard I...

    Reinstall to new drive using recovery partition

    I may have a solution. can you access the non-damaged part of the disk when you plug it on another PC? perhaps you can make a copy of the recovery partition in one of your PC then use the tool ASUS Backtracker. http://www.asus.com/supportonly/ASUS%20Backtracker/HelpDesk_Download/ EDIT...

    Reformatting a PC through USB device or LAN

    well, things magically began to work now. I tried booting up without/with the CMOS battery and it shows the POST, tried again with all the hardware installed and it works. I am not sure why although I might suspect the faint crackling sound of the voltage regulator might be the culprit. So I...

    Reformatting a PC through USB device or LAN

    ya it gave me a little shock when i was picking the build up dust. still won't show display. there are no beeps too. Now I wonder if it's just the CMOS battery that's causing the issue. The thread seem to branch from my main concern, can I change the thread title so maybe if someone with the...
