    The Hyper 212 literally works with every CPU socket dating back to LGA775 for Intel and Socket 754 for AMD. The only compatibility issue is that you'll need the correct brackets, as there are at...

    If the system behaves normally with a different video card, then it's going to be a fault with that particular video card. It could either be bad video memory, a fault with the video chip, or a bad...

    You probably should have taken up close detailed pictures of the motherboard because ASUS RMAs are horrible. Plenty of horror stories over on hardforum of ASUS damaging boards and returning them to...

    Quite a few games from that time frame support 1400x1050, and some can be forced to run in that mode with command line variables.

    I used to have a D610 with a 1400x1050 screen and rarely had...

    I'd open the monitor and pull the analog board. Look for bad solder joints or bad components. The neck board should also be checked.

    The seller could be selling in groups of five either because it's some number evenly divisible by the tubes of ICs they have, or they know they're pushing garbage counterfeit/relabeled ICs and put in...

    PSU repair is always an option, but I only really recommend it for rare or proprietary units that are hard to find or expensive to replace. You should also have some experience with high voltage...

    It'll be interesting to know the result. I may get a Ryzen to replace my main gaming rig eventually, and I'm looking at Linux because Windows 10 is a dumpster fire. Most of the stuff I do will work...

    Buzzing can either be the fan or coil whine.

    If the fan is buzzing, it usually indicates a bearing failure.

    Coil whine is where the coils on transformers or inductors start to resonate at a...

    The last generation of Intel chips to officially support Windows 7 was the 6th gen Celeron/Pentium/i3/i5/i7. The 7th gen is partially supported because it's more or less 6th gen. You'll need to use...

    If the thread pitch is fine, I think it uses M4 screws. If the thread is larger, it should be the standard #6-32 screws.

    Where did you get those new cache chips from? They look like counterfeits, the date code is way too new ( week 30 of 2018 ) and the writing is suspect.

    Most cheap LED bulbs use capacitor droppers, filtering isn't going to help due to how capacitor droppers run the LEDs at mains reference, only limiting the current.

    There was really nothing good about compact fluorescent bulbs, they were basically designed to fail.

    Fluorescent lamps need to be "warm started", where the filaments on each end are pre-heated...

    Volume Shadow Copy is enabled by default on most Windows versions since Vista. I think the default configuration is 20% of the primary storage partition.

    I don't consider anything under 100 GB to be Windows 7 ready since the OS is so bloated. The official recommended minimum is 20 GB for just the OS, but I've found it to easily consume 50-60 GB once...

    If the original hard drive was in the machine and hadn't been wiped, it probably had both the drivers and the software for the card on it.
