Thinking about upgrading to new, built PC on black friday, where would you shop ? Onlne, or brick? Am I right to be steering away from refurbished units?

I am under the impression that refurbished may mean devices may have considerable hidden known or undisclosed flaws, which may make them
plentiful and inexpensive to the consumer. We talked about this and the
conclusion is buyer beware. Research the product alone at least.

Refurbished isn't that bad. Was returned for some reason. May not have even been damaged, or was damaged but fixed. Make sure there's a good return policy.

Hey my noggles, my desktop took a shit after shipping around the world and now I've got to build a new one. Salvaging components from it so it shouldn't be too bad.

Wonder what you recommend. I need CPU/momboard/power supply/case only. Looking to go midrange pretty much all the way, and trying not to spend more than $500.

CPU: Taking advantage of that new 3rd gen Ryzen with an AMD Ryzen 5 3600. Seems like a good midpoint
Mobo: Something that supports this CPU, is reliable, and has an M.2 port in case I get an NVMe SSD later on.
Power supply: Reliable, has sum juice. Vid card uses 80w. Probably can do with around 500W. I dunno, not good with computer.
Case: Simple but solid, ideally with some USB ports in the front. No gay lights.

Is the CPU a good choice? What should I go with for the rest? Thank you for your coolness

this was brought up years ago, some people tried to snuff it off as, paranoid, what do you have to hide anyway, bla bla. Paranoid liberal bs. By the nature of how wireless works, there was no doubt it would be exploited. I beleive that the earliest versions had no realistic encryption mechanism, nothing better than wep level at the best.

So did come into play. Obvious. Some corporations did develop effective measures before this came to light.

The idea that one would have to be within 30 feet as that would be the limitation distance anyway of the devices range, yea sure. if it were even possible. Well, if that were the case, there are devices than can amplify faint signals. So that thought of 30 ft at best is still, or was still a no-go.

Possibilities of having control of a signal from a keyboard and mose. Anything is possible. This issue was posed on this group as well some years back. It did come to be.

That's just great! Somebody asked if their android keyboard had some sort of encryption scheme. It almost a laughable at best.

The original point was people scoffed about wireless devices being insecure. That came to pass. But most 'bluetooth' devices are fine if they are somewhat recent as was mentioned. What time frame would this be.

Best bet would be noting the device and google if it is vulnerable, if it is, does the manufacturer offer a 'patch.' Many manufacturers
will never offer a patch, even if they could.

There was this home smart home package. It offered security, like surveillance, with built in intruder detection. It worked on frequencies. Or a frequency. A simple tone generator could reproduce this frequency and render the trespassers intruders presence useless if it were stronger. Even breaking directly into a persons residence. Unless they had optional separate measures on their doors, windows. A dog that would alert to an intruder. All bets were off.

It was discounted that this and other systems were not built for reasonable security by the manufacturer, but more-so a security convince. Although many of these had been marked as reputable security presences in the industry. It really is even worse than that.

Smart tvs, what a mess. The NSA developed a backdoor to be capable to listen to conversations, leave the webcam on, even though the security settings, or basic settings were turned off. Even with the tv off this was possible. This got into the hands hackers/crackers. Big surprise. Didn't have to be NSA to figure this one out either though. Even without the manufacturers direct help.

If one were technically inclined to notice inconsistencies and detectable flaws could figure this all out. It's hooked up to your network, hence smart tv. So really anything beyond could be possible.

Email on a smart tv, google serrviesis a good example. Your everything could be just as well not even
be encrypted. Which services, such as firetv does like gmail services. One setting it it 'asks', is sharing your network passpharase.
Yes it is almost laughable.

Home security cameras. What port is open? Is it instantly vulnerable or not? OK. There were lists of open cams, some were home cams, some buisness, front door cameras. Today, well established websites offer security flaw of devices, laptops, smart devices, offer instructions on howto hack these. No need to join hacker groups or read hacker sites to get information. Mainstream security and tech websites offer these instructions. Why are they not prosecuted? Why should they be. They are exposing flaws that $$$ is overshadowing peoples security.

The work I do ocassionally, if somebody has tape over their webcam on their laptop, I don't even really think twice about it. Many laptops
out there have no patches. I did notice a lot of wireless logitech keyboards surface. Some were are not that out of date. A reason for this suddenly? Refer t op post. Not just logitech. Some got patches, some needed none, some even if they could be patched weren't offered patches. Some, would be impossible to patch.

People use WPS in troubleshooting a smart tv. The guy said, I want you to go to your router, I knew what he was going to say. He said there is a button that says WPS. I said no, if thats all you can do, I think we are done here. He said, yes I do understand where you are coming from, security. Lets try a few other things.

So, I have very good reasons to know my win7 x64, despite my 22 years of experience OL and being the guy everyone calls to repair their computer for cheap, I feel bad, but apparently, Malwarebytes (paid), ESET NOD32 (cracked), Spybot Search & Destroy (browser hardening) isnt enough, even non-continually running scanners I use when I do some cleaning up such as Zemana Antimalware and Malwarebytes Adware Scanner, that usually catches everything, but it really isnt right now.

Im about to install Ubuntu MATE 18.3.4 and I had it on a usb key so I started a live session and install clamav/clamtk and unlike ClamWin, possible false positives arent indicated in blue, as I have found out nosing around the internets.

I know there is some actual awful shit in there, like Ramnit and a few others, but a lot of the Win.Trojan.Generic and such that are detected in the windows system folders....well Im not gonna delete em. I did delete a few obvious ones and am ignoring monero miners being detected as shit, even if I have detect PUPs unchecked by default in ClamTK.

Help very welcome guys, Im ashamed like a japanese guy selling chicken sushi right now, this kind of crap doesnt happen to me, but theres one guy giving me heart attacks and strokes or what feels like em by trolling me using MS Anna, I deleted all of my streaming software and the mofo still manages to spam me with it, first time I got the navy seal copypasta while I was streaming on discord, even customized to me, so its one of the dudes in the only discord server I go to, so they knew I was up north, hence the small customization of the pasta...but after that a few days later, just spamming me random noises through MS A

It's different for every OEM. Can you be specific about the problem? I would start by finding your device in the XDA forums and seeing if anyone has been arsed to work on it. Some devices are too uncommon for anyone to bother hacking.

My son bought Lenovo y540 17,3 inch with 1660ti and 144hz display. Colors is complete shit making it unable to watch anything withut noticing the colors is off. I think this is because of the anti glare protection thing. Now he wants to return it and buy a different one in the same price range for 60hz or 144/120hz where the colors isnt fucked. Does all the 144hz laptops have a anti glare screen, like the Acer Nitro 5 for example?

Compared to his previous Y520 15,3, the colors/quality on y520 is way better than the shit 144hz display on y540...

What laptop display doesnt fuck up colors like this? Anyone tried the Acer predator helios or acer nitro 5 and can tell if the colors are like they should?

I assume the anti glare would be the issue. Bad drivers could have been installed when setting up the machine, updates form MS? Could try to adjust the heck out of settings, or reinstall like video drivers, But return asap if not happy.
I have seen it before, meaning to return exchange something and an accident happens that warranty would not fix, so replacement would as well be out of the question. Anyway, if think know the colors are off then they likely are. If that is how it started from the get-go, then things may be be able to be changed with the computer.

I recently had to move cross country and to stay under max luggage weight I took my PC apart and took it on my carry on.

I put it back together but now its not producing any video.
It's starting up fine but doesn't send video signal regardless of what monitor or cable I try.
The fan on the video card does startup for like 5 seconds when you turn the system on then it stops, so I know it's getting some power.
It seems that I might've connected the cables wrong because I don't knowcable im doing.
It's the 2014 asud essentio series.
I'm gonna post a few pics in hopes that someone spots my error.
Thanks for any help and SLAYER to you all

If you have an onboard video card next to your fancy pants video card try using that.

It should issue a beep or noise of some kind and start to POST.
Look up the specific POST for your mobo. Start there and work backwards.

Whatever the case, one would boot up using onboard video first before putting a video card back in by default. Experience is, that how they want it. Even if it seems
it should work like it did before. All other hardware should be no issue.

Windows, may have to go to 'device manager' and look for yellow exclamation points on the video drivers. May be able windows to update driver or if not remove offending drivers and reboot and update with video card. Or install drivers from website if that does not work.

I'm getting unprompted text to speech audio on my computer, and I can't figure out why.

It's happened twice so far. Earlier today my computer said "like you could ever satisfy me with that tiny penis", female text to speech voice. Then a moment ago it said something else, still female but too fast for me to completely catch it.

I'm fine with my computer insulting me sexually, but it needs to do it in a way that's between the two of us, not out loud. Is this some kind of program? nothing shows up in task manager that isn't usually there. Any idea whats going on?

is a 17 3 inch gaming laptop for $800-$1200 quiet when not playing games?

ASUS TUF FX705DT or Acer Nitro 5 17,3 for example that have gtx 1650 and 512gb ssd ... currently have a Lenovo y720 which is super quite when the fans are not running ... Kan one also expect a 17 3 inch like the ones above to be pretty quiet as well when not running high demanding apps?

And would you rather have a good 17 3 inch laptop or a 15 6 one assuming you wont plug it in to external monitor?

I had 15.6 msi gaming laptop and now have a 17.3 msi gaming laptop. The larger screen makes a huge difference and now I dont even consider going with anything smaller. I have a gs70 which is a bit older now but it still runs good and is very quiet when not playing games. I've been wanting to get something new that isnt MSI though. Their support has been terrbile.

In reality it's the people. People who hate arab entities, that chop peoples hands off for stealing. Yet say, we should chop the hands off thieves in the US. We already have a justice system. why screw it up any more than the part that are screwed up.

The comes worse than Bush, Trump. Who serves no logical purpose in government. And people still feed off that. Who on the republican side is planning to run against trump, nobody, while Democrats have a list of people to research and make actual decisions. Like Bush said this would be much easier if it were a dictatorship. trump demands 'loyalty.' Right wingers are just plain shit in politics. Even the ones that speak against him, because they brought him and the country where it is at today. I do not feel sorry for people that helped lead us here. The make America great again. Trump said, the world hates America. Bush said the world will buy America.

It's ok though, if they say and do what they do because their 'cult-like' followers don't question themselves their party or in reality even question Democrats.

Last time I was around a good computer was when Nvidia released the 290GTX and it's time I made myself a good station. In my extended absence, I didn't focus on parts, hype, and etcetera - thus, I've fallen behind.

The PC I'm trying to build is intended for streaming, gaming, rendering, and recording while keeping a low temperature. I am not trying to go all out either and I'm trying to be around the price of 2k. I can go higher or lower, just don't want to if it's avoidable.

I was thinking of having a SSD hub station or something like divided drives for separate programs to write on so the CPU doesn't have to look through a 1TB C drive while accessing DLLs.

Don't want to be extravagant, just a modest build that can do gaming on a game like Black Desert Online or Rainbow Six Siege, while recording and streaming that can also do great while rendering.

And if you guys got any tips for coolant, show me the way. Trying to get a clear view in today's market... So many people trying to shove things in my face. Feels like I'm an altar boy.

If you don't want to think too hard you can just copy someone else's build: https://pcpartpicker.com/guide/

If you want to be analytical, start with your core component performance requirements. Most people just look at a few benchmarks, pick out the few things they know they want, and then just buy whatever is on sale. Unless you're pushing up against some constraint, don't overthink it.

Why is Windows' force quite so shit when compared to Linux? (Maybe Mac too? Never used one)

Seriously, with windows, you tell it to end the fucking process like 10,000 times before it actually does anything. With Linux, just use killall, kill, xkill, whatever you want, and *bloop* it's gone. What makes the processes for killing an unresponsive application so different?
