TIL that European quart bottles do not have the same threaded opening as ours. Of course learned that after draining my transmission fluid and trying to thread my bottle pump onto the new fluid bottle.

Managed to get the new tranny fluid in but it took 30 minutes instead of 5.

Damn that sucks man,

Sleep and time, there are not enough of either in my house anymore :P

Good admins make or break a department.

Very true. Sadly the admin whom did this great work has moved on to bigger and better but he left us with a system we are able to update and fix:)

Been in IT for 8 years now.

I was a copier service technician for 3 of those years. I left that job in Feb. to start a new job at a manufacturing company in the IT department.
I had just installed a new Samsung copier at a very rural school with a two hour drive to the location. A couple days after the install I get a service call about it not printing. I ask them to cancel the print job and try again, they say it's not working. I ask if it's saying any errors at the bottom of the screen they say no. So I drive 2 hours out to them to find that there is no paper in the machine. The paper that had been in the machine was half a ream left over from testing the equipment and they had no paper on site. When I showed them the error at the bottom of the screen saying "please load paper" they were like, "Oh! We thought these new copiers did not need paper loaded in them!" I gave them half a ream of paper I had in my car and left. That is my most memorable service call in three years of losing my mind working on copiers and printers. Must happier now with a desk IT job again. But I did get put in charge of all the toner and printers and copiers at my current company due to my "expert" level of knowledge of them. :facepalm:

Damn at least it was only 2 hours.

First IT job I had I was busy upgrading bank machines and replacing the old dial up ones.

We get a emergency call 8 hours away, which includes 2 ferry rides and 4 hours of driving to get to.

At this time cell phones were not huge yet and the call was put into head office with next to zero reception.

They send me out and half way there I am told a wind storm hit one of the islands behind me making massive delays for my return.

I finally get to the site and the whole island is full of stoned out of their mind hippies. Look at the atm and see (no com error) go "oh great phones are most likely down" go and check their front desk phone and it's down to. Follow the long ass cord to the com box to find some methed out hippie ripping it apart. Get the building security and they chase him off. I then spend hours re punching all the cords. Leave site hours later and don't end up home till the next day when it's already time for work and I slept in my car at the ferry terminal. Needless to say I quit that day haha.

Glad to see AMD shaking up the market. I built a Skylake i7 rig and I never even put Windows on it. I was using an FX6300 desktop and kept using it till I got the funds for my Ryzen build. Much happier to keep to AMD.

Welcome and I honestly was amazed with the fx6300 I used around Xmas. Just upgraded that test bench to ryzen and should have some videos and reviews about it soon.

Newborn son likes to cry 24/7 so it's hard to do voice overs.

I think with ryzens great price to performance it means many buyers can get a good cpu for less then splurge on a badass gpu.

With their combination of excellent (for their class) performance and extremely reasonable asking prices the Ryzen 5 series is a home-run for AMD. So much so that recommending a slightly cheaper Intel i3-7350K or even a similarly priced Intel i5-7500K is bloody difficult. But don't just take our word for it, instead let's break it down so you can see where we are coming from and if you agree or not.

Only with the most recent drivers? I haven't seen it yet, but I haven't done the most recent drivers yet.

No this issue showed up in 2016 and people were calling it amds planned obsolescence. But it's random what cards in the series it affects but as little as one driver update will make the card useless till you find a perfect one that works.

Repair Guides DIY / Amd 2xx and 69xx black screen in windows
« on: August 13, 2017, 11:27:35 AM »
Noticed for some time now many Amd cards mobile and desktop have stopped working after any drivers are installed.

Once drivers install the screen goes black and never comes back. When you force reboot you see video till the Windows login screen appears which just shows up black.

Just wanted to know if anyone has found any solutions to this?

Thanks

Buddy of mine Jimmy from the FSF has had a loaner rig for years now made from the broken dreams of all our local friend's systems.

I ended up needing my HD 290X back for an upcoming video so told him its time to upgrade.

So that's what we did.

Specs

Ryzen R5 1600x
8GB DDR4 2400 Gskill Ripjaws
MSI GTX 1070 Armor 8GB
Asus Prime X370-PRO
Coolermaster MSI Modmaster Case
Hydro Series H60

Used from old rig
OCZ 1000 Watt PSU
2TB Seagate SSHD
275GB Crucial MX300 SSD









Rig turned out not half bad and for once Jimmy has one of the nicest rigs of the whole gaming group so good on him.

Ryzen is a lot of fun and simple to build with, reminds me of building with almost all AMD as the Corsair cooler mounts to the stock AMD socket mounts.
