Repair Guides DIY / Basics to troubleshooting PC & Windows Issues
« Last post by Soullessone21 on January 08, 2018, 07:46:04 AM »
For some reasons many people do not know the basics of the basics to windows "Slow" or "Glitches without error"

Basic first two things does not matter the version of windows "CMD" is your friend.

Repair 1 (Check Disk)
Hit the windows key or start/run
Type CMD, right click command prompt and run as admin
in the new screen make sure C drive or a prefix of it is selected if not type "C:" then enter
Now type "chkdsk/f" and then "yes"
Reboot
During the reboot the system will fix it's minor HDD related issues if it can.

Repair 2 SFC (Fixing windows issues)
Hit the windows key or start/run
Type CMD, right click command prompt and run as admin
in the new screen make sure C drive or a prefix of it is selected if not type "C:" then enter
Now Type "Sfc/scannow" this will take some time so you can do other issues while it runs
It should find minor and some major windows issues and fix them.

Now for a dedicated issue I run into all the time (Start button does dick all)
hit Windows key"Does nothing"
Right-click the taskbar click task manager
Click Details tab
find explorer.exe right click it and end task
Then click file run new task, then type "Explorer.exe"
Now the start button works again YAY life is grand

now if you have some quick fixes or suggestions please post them here lets get this DIY area a bit more helpful

Gallery / New Office Reno
« Last post by Soullessone21 on January 08, 2018, 07:06:37 AM »
So moved in over a month back and have been getting into the reno heavily the last few days.

Before I moved in:




Move in:




Now the changes are starting

(Above there is no power in my office yet so as you can see I ran the cords through the wall and same with my network cables :P


Cleared off above wall need to remove this wall completely to move it up a few feet


Put up the door "Kinda" its bolted in but not fitted yet and that wall has to come down so... a little bit of a waste of time but meh haha


Sadly the wall goes into another so it will need to be cut out and modified before moved but might have to pay someone to do this

Need to still get the new outlets and my Cat6 keystones and stuff that were ordered a year back from NCIX but guess since they went under I will have to go elsewhere.
  • Outlets
  • Insulation
  • Drywall
  • Green Glue
  • Resilent chambers
  • Resilent clips
  • Green Calking
  • The Wall moved

Once above is done I will them create a floating desk on 3 walls 1 for builds and a corner desk for my main rig

Everything Hardware / Re: ViewSonic VA2719-2K: cheap 1440p, worth it?

Yeah I donít get it. Every other monitor similar is quite a bit more $.

Tempted.

I have been oddly seeing some great lcds show up for cheap but most are openbox or refurbished. This still sounds like a good Deal. If you do get it keep us posted on how it is.

That actually does not look bad at all. I remember spending like $600 on a similar spec screen a few years back
