Re: M.2 NVMe adapter card for W7(?)

Just upgrade to Windows 10. I was hesitant as well, but glad I did.

Re: Recommend a 65" TV -- the less SMART the better

Good call. Smart TV's spy on you. I would avoid unless you do not care.

Re: GTX 1060 No Display

Yep, that is exactly what I am doing. I have the riser cable on order and I have a case with a vertical mount for graphics card so that should be the solution.

Re: GTX 1060 No Display

Update. I finally was able to test this video card in my other PC. I had to buy a new power supply to do it but it was worth it because, guess what? It worked just fine in my older PC. So what I think it comes down to is my newer PC, the video card is not able to seat properly in that motherboard. T...

Re: GTX 1060 No Display

Thanks for the suggestions. I was able to get it to seat properly with decent force applied. The SATA connectors are what the card is hitting on. Still no display. The last test I need to do is test in another system to see if it is the card does in fact work or not. Problem is I do not have another...

Should I just toss it since it was never purchased? Can you RMA a video card you never purchased?

Re: GTX 1060 No Display

The only thing I can come up with at this point is that the card is not going all the way in the PCI express slot. It never locks when I put it in slot but is definitely pushed in as far as it can go.

Do you have the 6 or 8-pin PCIe power connector from the PSU plugged into the GTX 1060? I ask because your other card would not need this, so it would be easy to overlook.



Yes, I definitely have the 8-pin power plugged into video card.

Re: GTX 1060 No Display

BIOS is set to external graphics. Tried every option in the BIOS. On the latest BIOS version as well. Two more questions: 1. I am assuming that during bootup with the external GPU you never even see the BIOS splash screen prior to the OS bootup sequence, but just confirm that for me. 2. After you b...

I have a GTX 1060 that I cannot get to display at all. I have tried just about everything the internet has to offer to get this thing to work, but no luck. I figured I would see if you guys have any ideas. The fans and lights will turn on but the PC always boots to the integrated graphics even if I ...

Re: Xbox One X

I prefer gaming with a controller rather than keyboard mouse. This is why I ended up getting the XB1X. Plus I do not like to wait for a PC version to be made. FFXV PC version came out 1.5 years after console.

I agree. Black Friday and Cyber Monday have been a joke for many years. I do not even look at the ads anymore because I know it is all junk. And if I wanted something I would have already bought it.

My thoughts are that Kaby Lake will be a bust for Intel (at least until Kaby Lake X comes out).  AMD has got this generation.

I disable sleep/hibernate too, but only for desktops. On laptops you really need it.

Edit: I run Linux, but the same sort of sleep/wake issues apply. In fact, on Linux it is generally worse.

Thats true.  With a laptop I would probably keep sleep, but disable hibernate.

If you can hold out for another month or so you can get the new Intel or AMD chips.  Either will be a massive upgrade.  No need to wait until Coffee IMO.
