Community Article Need help with Motherboard — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Help Choosing Parts Need help with Motherboard gkiteguy Pasadena ✭ March 2 in Help Choosing Parts I am putting together an Core I7 10700k system. I have tentatively selected the Gigabyte Z490 AORUS PRO AX Intel LGA 1200 ATX. I'm looking for rock solid longevity. My last build was a Disignaire and it has worked well. I saw some mixed results and am second guessing myself. I mostly don't game but do some graphics manipulation/video. I have to support this to my wife, and it can't be unstable in any way. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin March 3 Hello @gkiteguy and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. Just sharing some thoughts first based on my experience. What I have seen is that there is always a risk with custom built systems not having good longevity in general, no matter the board or cpu. Just because all the PC components to build a system are manufactured by different manufacture's to work and be compatible with each other, but they're still produced and designed by different companies. Pre-built systems like a Dell or HP use components that are Dell/HP approved for their systems. They're not using a collection of different component manufacturer's for their systems. A pre-built has a higher probability of lasting longer than a custom system; even though pre-built pc's can have issues too. Just sharing my experiences. I'd go with a pre-built system for video editing if the longevity of the PC staying up and running over a long term, is a concern, over building a system. Just my opinion based of my experiences. As far as the Gigabyte z490, its a good board. Look at the Asus Maximus XII Hero. There's are more reliability reviews out there for the Maximus board than the Z490. The Z490 may be a better board, but check out some of the reliability reviews on the Maximus. Decide then if want to go with the Z490 or trying out the Maximus board. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 816 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Either of those would work, you would just need the proper adapter to get it to work with your MacBook. A cable like https://www.microcenter.com/product/612938/j5create-jcc153-usb-c-to-4k-hdmi-cable-5-ft--white would get an HDMI monitor to connect to the Thunderbolt/USB-C ports on the MacBook. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers JazzDMV January 18 Here are 2 monitors found on MicroCenter's site.

In order to set up 2 external monitors, should I purchase 2 of the adapters? 2.) Is a retina display recommended? 3.) Is a certain pixel density recommended? 4.) If yes about retina and pixel density, it doesn't appear the 2 monitors (Acer and LG) have those features.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin January 19 If you're looking to add two displays to your laptop, it will need two display adapters, yes. Whether a Retina display is recommended or not would depend on how you intend to use the display and whether you would require one or not. A Retina display is an Apple branding term that essentially means, high resolution, specifically a high DPI. Typically, the higher the resolution the higher the cost, because it costs more to create and there is some different tech implemented. Both of the monitors you've selected will work with the display adapted mentioned above. However, I don't believe it's possible to find a higher resolution monitor in the price range that you're searching. I hope this info helps! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 815 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

New ASUS XG49VQ Monitor Fails to Display as Sole Monitor — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Monitors and Displays PLEASE HELP! New ASUS XG49VQ Monitor Fails to Display as Sole Monitor joe1896 ✭ July 27 in Monitors and Displays Please help...I have a seemingly unfixable issue with a brand new Asus XG49VQ monitor I recently bought from MC to replace my current 3-monitor setup. My current setup: Powerspec G223 with no major modifications, other than new 32GB RAM (installed 2020 to replace OEM memory) and new motherboard heat sink (installed June 2021) Windows 10 (64-bit) Graphics card = Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Monitors = 3 x Dell E2214H Center monitor is connected with DVI to HDMI cable, outer two monitors are connected with DVI to Display Port THE PROBLEM: In short, the new Asus monitor will NOT display when connected by itself (standalone). If one (or more) of the older monitors is connected at startup, then windows does detect the Asus monitor. It can be set as the primary display and will stay on/functional even when the older monitor is disconnected. HOWEVER, when the system is restarted, the Asus monitor fails to display any signal from the PC. This issues persists regardless of the port it's connected to and regardless of input (I'm trying to use DP but it's the same outcome with HDMI). This is actually the 2nd such monitor I've received, as there was the same issue with the first one and MC sent a new one, believing it was a defective unit. I have tried every troubleshooting method I could think of, as well as some suggested by MC support. Absolutely nothing works and I am at my wit's end. Anyone have any idea what I can do???? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin July 27 Greetings, just to verify, you have the new monitor plugged directly into the video card (the 1060) and all the other monitors are connected to this video card? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe1896 ✭ July 27 That's correct. All the issues above occur when trying to input from the GTX1060 video card. However, this issue happens with the native DP input as well. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin July 27 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34590#Comment_34590 I have heard of similar issues like this before, but not necessarily on this monitor. What does Windows show your display resolution as being in Settings? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe1896 ✭ July 27 Right now it shows 1920 x 1080, which matches to the Dell monitors that are connected. When I manage to get the Asus monitor into the display, Windows automatically adjusts to 3840x1080 resolution to match that monitors settings. Also, to update from the prior message, here are a few more things that also did not solve the problem: getting rid of windows PIN login screen changing BIOS settings to "multi monitor" uninstalling/reinstalling graphics card drivers (for both onboard & GTX1060) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin July 28 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34592#Comment_34592 What happens if you set the 3840x1080 manually? Have you also tried checking with ASUS support to see if they are aware of any known issues? https://www.asus.com/support/CallUs/ 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe1896 ✭ July 28 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34601#Comment_34601 I tried Asus and the level 1 support agent had no viable fixes. Has been escalated but it's unclear when they get back to me. None of the troubleshooting options available through the website have worked in solving the problem. I will try force-setting the resolution on a working display, prior to powering down and re-starting with only the new Asus monitor connected. Will provide feedback. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook GavinTurner ✭ July 28 Try DDU. It can uninstall the drivers for your card, and any osd drivers that might have been installed too. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe1896 ✭ July 28 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34615#Comment_34615 Ty, will try this if the resolution change is unsuccessful. I did try uninstalling/reinstalling graphics card drivers (for both onboard & GTX1060), but if something got hung up, perhaps that will get it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe1896 ✭ July 28 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34601#Comment_34601 Windows does not allow me to set to 3840 x 1080 manually, since that exceeds the capabilities of the existing (old) monitors. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin July 28 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34624#Comment_34624 Can you try setting it to that manually with the other monitors unplugged, and ensure it is set as your default display? Have you ever set up NVIDIA Surround with your other displays? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe1896 ✭ July 28 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34628#Comment_34628 Added Asus monitor to existing display Set Asus monitor to primary display Following DDU (as recommended above), set resolution to 3840 x 1080 and ensured all drivers updated for both graphics card and monitor Disconnected the 3 Dell monitors so that only Asus monitor was on. Used monitor as normal for 5-10 minutes. Restarted PC with only Asus monitor connected "NO SIGNAL" In the NVIDIA menu, the option for Surround is greyed out. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin July 29 The best thing we can suggest at this time is to see if the issues persist on another computer, that would help verify if it is a monitor or PC issue. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook joe1896 ✭ July 29 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34644#Comment_34644 Appreciate all the suggestions to this point. The spot I'm at is that if it were the monitor, it likely wouldn't work at all. If it were the PC, I wouldnt be able to use it with the older monitors (as I am right now). I've reached out to Asus for potential solutions, but not hopeful. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 815 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

The ✭ February 2 edited June 7 in General Discussion I have a bunch of 20 yr old games (Medal of Honor, Combat Flight Sim 1,2,3, etc), and I want a PC that can play those old disc's. Do you have a refurbished PC, of can you build one that can do that? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin February 2 edited February 2 Hello @The It's fairly hard to say. The real concern here is the OS. Those games were designed to be compatible with an OS that was made 20 years ago, and the current OS has vastly changed. That being said, Windows 10 does allow you to start things in a compatibility mode for different OS. Most of these games would not require much performance since tech has advanced much over the past 20 years. I've created a build that will last you for a good long time and is upgradable, should you choose. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=5b5d400e-3119-4e44-abc3-9c6b635b85de We also have a few options for refurbished or prebuilt options.

So I think you're saying those old games may play on Windows 10? Also, it says the Dell OptiPlex 9010 SFF you recommended is sold out at the St Louis Pk store (are you at that store?). So here's my deal, if you can recommend something similar that will play my old games, and tell me exactly how to work that compatibility issue, I'll be happy to stop down and buy one. TY! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 3 Hi again! I can totally understand your concern. I'm not in the store, but I'd be happy to check in on their inventory to find a similar option for you. Here's a similar option I've found in our St. Louis Park store. I did find this PCGamer article that does a pretty good job of explaining how to run older games in Windows 10 and here's one from TechRadar. I'd recommend reading over the article!

I'm looking to build my first PC and have very basic knowledge of what I'm doing. My budget is from $1500 - $1800. I want to be able to run high graphical settings with over 60 FPS if possible. I already own a mouse and keyboard but have no monitor. Also, regarding the CPU; I have friends who swear by AMD and some who say Intel is the only/best option. Thoughts? Thanks in advance! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TSMichaelB admin February 2020 Accepted Answer Welcome to the forum Yamero77. $1500-$1800 is a very solid budget, even if we are partitioning some of that budget for a monitor. Here are a few options for you. Option 1: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=71366aae-3656-44a5-8ea2-e4d470d21184 This option is going to be what I would recommend at the top end of your budget. It will get you an 8 core, 16 thread Intel Core i9 9900K which is currently the best gaming CPU available on the market. It's definitely far more expensive than some of the comparable AMD offerings, but if you did not want to compromise on high core count and clock speed, this is the best choice. It also includes 16GB of DDR4 3600mhz C16 memory, a 750W fully modular gold rated PSU, a 1TB NVMe SSD, a 240mm closed loop liquid cooler, an RTX 2070 graphics card and a Dell S2417DG, a 24 inch 1440p 165hz G-Sync display that will pair absolutely perfect with the rest of the component selection. After the $20 bundle discount, this will cost around $1810 before taxes and does not include the cost of an OS. Option 2: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=505d04dc-9f2d-4abc-b525-f79bab000679 This option is going to be the budget option. It will provide the high refresh rate, high graphical settings that you requested for the lowest price. This will save you the most money now, but may require upgrading sooner as more graphically demanding games launch. The CPU is a fair bit slower than the 9900K, but for 1440P gaming, it doesn't matter all to much as the graphics card will matter more at this resolution. This gives you 6 cores, 12 threads, 12GB of DDR4 3600mhz memory, a 650W bronze PSU, an RTX 2060 KO graphics card, a 1TB NVMe SSD, and the same Dell 24 inch 165hz G-Sync monitor. The total price of this system is $1274 after the $20 bundle, but does not include taxes or the cost of an OS. Option 3: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=1923163c-96c4-4a39-804e-e99a2e273077 This is going to be my personal recommendation. It will grant you the most price:performance of the 3 builds and should last you for quite some time. It's extremely similar to build 1, except we swapped the 9900K down to a 9700K. We still get 8 cores at a very high clock speed, we just save $130 by doing away with the Hyperthreading feature. If you are not streaming while gaming or rendering videos while multi-tasking, you will not miss this feature. The $130 savings also allowed us to move up to an RTX 2070 Super, which should give you an extra 20% faster graphics card for even higher framerates in more demanding titles, all while landing right in the middle of your budget at $1650 after the $20 bundle discount. Once again, this does not include taxes or the cost of an OS. To answer the question about which processor is better, it's honestly subjective. AMD is in a really good spot right now because they offer very similar gaming performance to Intel, while offering much better multi-threaded performance for a lower price. With that being said, Intel still has the best gaming oriented processors on the market. If gaming is your goal and you do not want to compromise on performance, Intel is still the best option. It all boils down to how you plan on using your system. I would say if you do more than gaming, or find yourself multi-tasking while gaming, go with AMD's Ryzen 3000 series. If you are just gaming and want the highest framerates possible, go with Intel's 9th generation processors. 6 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers yamero77 ✭ February 2020 Thanks so much Michael for taking the time to put these together so quickly. You've provided some great options here and I think the third build is definitely closest to my personal needs. I have colleagues who swear by both AMD and Intel so your more agnostic and preferential explanation really helped me out! If you or anyone else that happens to see this has any tips or anything else for me, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks again! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin February 2020 You're very welcome Yamero. The biggest tip I can recommend would be to make sure that you enable Nvidia's G-Sync technology. It's going to be instrumental in making sure your gaming experience is extremely smooth, free of jittering and tearing. Here is a quick article on how to do so: https://www.microcenter.com/tech_center/article/10907/how-to-enable-nvidia-g-sync. Lastly, if you do decide to get that Dell monitor, tweak the color settings a little bit. While they are already pretty good out of the box, the panel looks phenomenal when properly tuned. For my panel, the best colors were achieved when setting red at 96, green at 99, and leaving blue at 100. Gamma is going to be subjective, but I like my panels dark since I often game in a dark room. I run my gamma at 0.83 and brightness at 13%, but this is going to be up to your personal preference. One last recommendation. The LanCool II chassis comes with a spot to add a USB Type C port. It requires a cable to add and attach to a motherboard. If you need that cable, it can be found here: https://www.microcenter.com/product/616604/lian-li-600mm-usb-31-(gen-2-type-c)-cable-for-lancool-ii---black.

Community Article Micro Center SSD won’t work in my computer? — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › General Discussion Micro Center SSD won’t work in my computer? Niel ✭ April 9 in General Discussion I have a Dell Inspiron 3471 (Windows 10 [64-bit]) – just a simple computer. It has a regular old RAID hard drive. I bought a Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD at Micro Center and they agreed I simply install it in the empty slot, use the Samsung software to clone my hard drive, and change the BIOS to boot the SSD. But I get an error message that I can’t clone unless my hard drive has an AHCI driver. And you can’t install an AHCI driver unless you have an AHCI hard drive. I found how to change the hard drive to AHCI. My instructions say the AHCI driver will install automatically. But I don’t see that an AHCI driver even exists for the Intel 300 Series Chipset Family. Is the AHCI driver sitting on my computer and will install automatically? Or where can I download the AHCI driver so it’s ready to be installed? If none of this will work, will Micro Center take back the SSD and sell me one that works? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSKyleH admin April 10 Hello @Niel , thank you for contacting us on our community. If I understand your message correctly you mentioned the previous drive using RAID. This would mean that any cloning would require software to be able to support RAID configurations. You may change the boot up process in the bios to use ACHI instead of RAID, which would then allow you to use the Samsung software, but I suspect it wouldn't be able to clone the original drive then. If you do proceed to use ACHI, this normally requires windows to be reinstalled on the computer, since the drive is clean this wouldn't affect any data on the other drive, which could be disconnected during the process for the best data protection. Once you install windows using ACHI any drivers needed would be provided by the windows setup. If you would like information on reinstalling windows we do offer a great guide on doing a clean install using a flash drive at https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/2288/how-to-perform-a-clean-install-of-windows-10. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Niel ✭ April 10 Thanks for the quick response! (I want to clone so I don't have to install all my programs again, losing their preferences, plus so I don't have to restore my data backup. I believe cloning will work, as RAID and AHCI are controllers and proprietary data not recognized by each other, such as Windows vs. Mac. If I understand you and my instructions correctly, 1) change the current RAID HDD to AHCI (*see below) 2) the AHCI driver will install automatically because multiple drivers from Intel for its 300 Series Chipset Family are sitting on the computer per normal procedure by chip companies 3) install onto the HDD the Samsung_NVM_Express_Driver_3.3 for the new Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD I bought at Micro Center when the employee said it would work 4) clone the HDD (which is now recognized by the Samsung SSD Data Migration v.4.0 app) to the new SSD 5) change the boot drive to the new SSD *Additional instructions: http://triplescomputers.com/blog/uncategorized/solution-switch-windows-10-from-raidide-to-ahci-operation/ If none of this will work, will Micro Center take back the SSD and sell me one that works, hopefully easily? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TS_EmileC admin April 10 @Niel You got it. Once you do this, please let us know if this worked. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Niel ✭ April 14 Still can't get it to work. I easily changed to AHCI. But the computer doesn't recognize that there is even an SSD slot, even though there is one to which I installed the SSD (and made sure, twice, it was seated, locked in, etc. I booted to a USB stick with Wiindows and it doesn't see an SSD drive. I went into the BIOS and where it should show a drive on board (System Configuration / Drives), it shows only SATA-0, SATA-1, SATA-2, AND SATA-3. The Inspiron 3471 Service Manual says there should also be: M.2 PCIe SSD-0. It also says that under General / Device Information, it should show "M.2 PCIe SSD-0 -- Displays the M.2 PCIe SSD information of the computer." Now, still in the BIOS, in all the windows, there is a button to "Restore Settings." If that is a global button that will restore ALL settings, that sounds dangerous. But if it works only for settings in the current window, then maybe doing it in the System Configuration / Drives window will restore visibility of the M.2 PCIe SSD-0 (although I don't know why I would have ever turned it off). However, there is also the following possibility I found that may or may not apply: The M.2 SSD slot might be only for a SATA M.2 SSD. The Samsung 970 EVO is a NVMe M.2 SSD.  If so, I’ll need to return the SSD you sold me and get a Samsung 860 EVO (or any SATA SSD) in M.2 format. But this is a solution I found that doesn’t have a follow-up saying it worked. Then again, I would think the BIOS would show the slot whether or not something was in there. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 14 @Niel do you have an additional drive installed with the Samsung Evo SSD (ex., 2 drives installed) when installing Windows? 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Niel ✭ April 14 Really, I have to start with continuing to compliment Micro Center for quick responses here. The answer to the question of whether I have an additional drive installed with the Samsung Evo SSD (ex., 2 drives installed) when installing Windows is: kind of. I have the hard drive that came with the computer, but I'm not trying to install Windows per se. My hard drive has Windows already. What I'm trying to do it install the SSD, clone the current hard drive to it, then boot to the SSD and stop using the hard drive. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 14 @Niel okay understood. Have you changed the boot option in the Bios from UEFI to legacy and then tried to boot from your SSD? If not try that. If need guidance on that, let us know what motherboard you have so we can know what bios you are working with. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Niel ✭ April 14 Yes. Are you sure I don’t need a SATA SSD instead of a NVMe SSD? Further research has uncovered that the Dell Inspiron 3471 takes a M.2 2230/2280 SATA SSD. It uses AHCI, which I’ve already switched to, up to 6 Gbps with a capacity up to 512 GB. It would show up in the BIOS as M.2 PCIe SSD-0. So my guess above says I need to return the SSD you sold me and get a Samsung 860 EVO (or any SATA SSD) in M.2 format.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 14 @Niel The Dell Inspiron 3471 has a m.2 ssd slot, the Samsung EVO is installed in the M.2 slot correct? Take out the other HDD that came with the computer and try to just boot to your cloned m.2 SSD (Use only 1 installed drive). 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Niel ✭ April 16 Yes. I had to get a SATA SSD. And that worked. Solution: Get the SSD that works for your computer: Either SATA or NVMe. After installation, the old hard drive continued as the boot drive even when the boot sequence was changed in the BIOS. Instead of unplugging it, I disabled that SATA port in the BIOS. Now it boots to the SSD. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 16 @Niel okay glad you got it to work. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 816 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

On the other hand, I would also like you to recommend what graphics card I could put on the computer to improve the quality of video games. I would like something that isn't expensive but that works well for me, could you install it on the computer that I bought for you?, how much would the graphics card and the installation cost me?... Thank you very much. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TSTonyV admin May 2020 Accepted Answer The Optiplex 9020s don't come with a great power supply or a lot of room, so you'd have to stick with a smaller/lower profile video card.  You could use something like a GT1030, but how well it performs will depend on what kind of games you are playing. It can get the job done for things with light graphics requirements.  5 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Jlewin12Computers ✭ May 2020 Almost a year ago I had purchased a computer from Micro center.

Unfortunately the ports on the motherboard won't work on that model, because the i5-9400f processor it comes with does not include integrated graphics. There are other ports you can use on the GPU, but you may need something like an HDMI to Displayport cable/adapter.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Jose_Guijarro_01 ✭ May 2020 Yesterday I went to the Microcenter store to have them install a NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 2GB graphics card on my computer that I bought right there, this graphics card was recommended to me in the Microcenter forum but in the store the customer service technician told me that it doesn't fit in the computer case and then they installed me a GeForce GT 710; When I got home I started to investigate and I could verify that in the Microcenter store they sell a Dell OptiPlex 9020 SFF Desktop Computer (Refurbished) Intel Core i7 4770 3.4GHz Processor; 32GB DDR3-1600 RAM; 512GB SSD; NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 2GB; SKU 993048 is the product identification code, and as you can see, it has the graphics card installed that I wanted it to put on my computer; I would like to know if this can be solved for me in Microcenter, that is to say that if finally you can put the graphic card that I want NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 2GB.

I recently switched to using the HDMI connection, and am experiencing a rather odd problem. Now, whenever I try to play a movie on my PC, the screen goes black for maybe 3-5 seconds, then comes back for 3-5 seconds, ..., and keeps blinking on and off like this. Not only does it do this when streaming movies on Netflix/RedBox/youtube, but also when playing a DVD with Windows Media Player. And it will keep blinking on and off until I either close Media Player (for DVDs) or close the window/tab when streaming a movie. I have only encountered this when playing movies - for some reason I can stream other types of videos on youtube just fine. It seems to be independent of video resolution, since I have streamed HD videos (>= 720p) with no problem, but then had the monitor blink when playing a 480p movie on youtube. Even stranger, it doesn't even seem to be the length of the video that is the issue, as I am able to play some rather lengthy documentary videos just fine. I don't understand why playing a full movie has this effect, but other types of videos don't. I have done all of the following: 1. Changed the Input source to "HDMI" in the on-screen monitor menu. 2. Verified that the HDMI cable is secure on both ends, and even tried other HDMI cables. 3. Confirmed that the device is working in Control Panel (the device status for the display/graphics adapter says "This device is working properly.") 4. Attempted to update the device driver, and it says "The best driver for your device is already installed". Lastly, I connected it to my work laptop (Dell, running Windows 10), and did NOT have the problem when streaming a full-length youtube movie. So, I don't believe that the monitor is defective, since it seems to work fine with the Dell laptop, and in all scenarios other than playing a movie. I'm not opposed to buying a new monitor if necessary, but I would feel pretty stupid if it turned out that I just needed to toggle one of the countless settings in the Intel Graphics Control Panel to correct this (I have experimented with changing some of them, but no luck so far). Or even worse, I buy a new monitor and continue to have this problem 😫 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer Ian admin July 15 Accepted Answer Greetings, As this is with a Windows 7 computer and it is past its end of life/support, troubleshooting by Microsoft or Micro Center in-store troubleshooting would no longer be available. If the monitor and same cable works fine on another PC, with the issue you are describing it sounds like the video card / graphics built into the motherboard are most likely failing. It freezing / black screening and recovering is a common symptom of that problem. You can try an uninstall of your drivers (and reboot so it reinstalls them) to see if that helps, but based on your description, I would assume the hardware itself is at fault. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers miscmk1969 ✭ July 15 That makes sense.

On top of the cabinet is a windows sticker with the new Windows activation code, but the first set of digits is covered by a small Microsoft sticker. Do I peel off this small sticker to reveal the activation code? Or does this mess up the windows sticker? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSTonyV admin May 2020 Hello @jetthroe! Welcome to the Community.  Do not peel the sticker. The silver Microsoft rectangle is scratch off. Scratch it gently with a coin to reveal the Windows product key underneath. If you peel the sticker instead of scratching, you will almost certainly ruin the key and we don't keep these keys on file, so you'll be out of luck at that point. Be careful not to scratch too hard either, I've seen some people scratch so hard they tore the sticker and ruined it that was as well.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 816 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I just dont get what the issue is. is there a way to fix it? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer TSMikeW admin April 2020 Accepted Answer We'll be happy provide some advise on this issue for you. To verify does the disc eject after a few seconds by itself or does it eject after you try to open it in file explorer? If it's the former, it's likely a defective ODD. I wouldn't replace the slimline drives on the 3650. I would just replace it with an external.  If it's the latter, that it's ejecting when you open file explorer and try to open the drive, then it isn't enumerating the driver automatically. You can insert the drive and try to do this manually from Powershell with: Get-WMIObject -windowstyle hidden -Class Win32_CDROMDrive -Property * | Get-Member To open Powershell, right click on the "Start" button, it'll be one of the options in your power user menu. 5 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers tom ✭ April 2020 Ok I'll try it again and see which one its doing and get back to you.  Thanks for the help  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 815 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
