    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST InsydeH20 Secure boot

    Thanks. :) Do you know whether it booted in UEFI mode with Windows 10? If you display the Disk Manager do you see the UEFI partitions on your boot drive? Check that there isn't more than one EFI partition somewhere.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST [INITIA 15.6] Impossible to install Ubuntu

    I'm no Linux expert (at all!) but from where did you get the Ubuntu install media? Have you read this?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Blue Screen of Death

    The very first minidump shows the problem; the stop code is FAULTY_HARDWARE_CORRUPTED_PAGE. The failure type is a 'compressed store manager error' which indicates that the bug check occurred whilst decompressing a compressed RAM page. The Windows Memory Manager is able to recover single bit...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Bad FPS after first boot?

    Open Task Manager, click on the Performance tab, reduce the width so that only the graphs on the left are showing, click on Options and then Always On Top. Now you can see the resource utilisations whilst you run the game - which (if any) are peaking?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Bad FPS after first boot?

    On any new Windows install (as you have on a new PC) there is a fair bit of configuring that Windows does in the background for the first few hours (days?) - the disk indexer runs over all your drives building the indexes for example - and these processes do use up a fair chunk of CPU time. It...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Airless tyres anyone?

    They would cost a fortune even if they were much cheaper to make. Novelty has a price! I would guess (because I don't know) that what wears pneumatic tyres out the fastest is incorrect tyre pressures - followed by poor steering geometry. These will solve the first problem, though not the second.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Can someone clear this up for me?

    Personally I would put a piece of paper in the box with your name, your original order number, your RMA number, and your phone number on so there is no doubt where the returned item(s) have come from. :)

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST RAM PROBLEM AND OVERHEATING NEW RECOIL 15.6

    I think all of the others are correct. Those reporting clock frequency report 1333 Mhz (and then you have to know that DDR makes for 2666 Mega transfers per second), the BIOS reports 2666 MT/s because it's reporting Mega Transfers per second and is thus taking account of the DDR feature.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST RAM PROBLEM AND OVERHEATING NEW RECOIL 15.6

    I think that initial CPU-Z image is some sort of glitch in CPU-Z TBH. It's reporting ½ the base clock speed of 1333 MHz for some reason. As mentioned, the DDR feature means that a read/write is done on both the leading and trailing edge of the clock pulses and thus the actual read/write rate is...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Pc freezing after boot

    Since its been through a delivery pticess recently, try removing and replacing the PCIe cards, the RAM cards and the M.2 SSD cards. It's not that unusual for stuff to come loose in transit.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Blue Screen of Death

    Can you make the file public please? My first thought would also be that you may have a RAM issue given those stop codes. In which case please download Memtest and run that, allow it to complete all four iterations of the various tests. That will take a VERY long time on your 128GB but it's...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Fan Noisy on Startup

    Fluff (and dust sometimes) can unbalance a fan and make it quite noisy. If removing the fluff has stopped the noise then job done. :) It's wise to clean the whole PC periodiaclly, how often depends on how dusty the environment in which it runs. I clean mine every couple of months - but that's...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Airless tyres anyone?

    I wonder how long each tyre will last? And which will go first, the tyre tread or one (or more) of the flexible 'spokes'? I wonder too how much road noise it generates, both for those in the car and those outside? I wonder what the 'fibreglass blend' is? I have some experience of fibreglass...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Fan Noisy on Startup

    If you open up the front of the case so that you can see the fans you should be able to confirm that it's a front fan causing the noise. Try stopping the fan (gently and carefully) to confirm it's the source of the noise. If it is a front fan then call PCS (phone, don't email) and see what they...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Wifi adapter failing after sleep mode?

    LSO is the Large Send Offload feature of the adapter. Go into the advanced options for the adapter in Device Manager and look for a Large Send Offload option, if it's there set it to disabled. The other thing I would try is to download inSSIDer3 (free) and use that to find the least busy channel...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Computer stops responding while downloading an update to FS2020 and watching a film

    Good idea, though be sure nothing is running in the background. Uploads (automatic backups to the cloud for example) can cause more problems than downloads. This is because they can interfere with the ability of the FS2020 download client to send acknowledgements of received packets in a timely...
