    Fresh install of windows on new computer?

    I'm building a new computer, ill make this question quick. Should I install a fresh copy of windows on my SSD that I'm reusing from my old computer, or just let it be? Should I wipe the drive completely and redownload everything? I know it doesn't really make a difference, but since I'm using...

    Desktop folder thumbnails and video thumbnails are not showing

    I should mention that the most ram you can have in a 32bit system is 4Gb. If you are using a 64bit system then yeah, no harm in upgrading that.

    Yeah, that's not much ram at all. That's almost how much windows needs at a minimum, and if you're also trying to run other programs in the background or video viewing applications, that's not much ram to go around. I'm not saying that's 100% your issue, but I'll let someone else validate that...

    Desktop folder thumbnails and video thumbnails are not showing

    I read through some other fixes online for this. This Link seems to have some nice solutions. I believe thumbnails are stored in RAM, correct? This statement you made in a different thread made it seem like you don't have a lot installed in your system. How much do you have installed? If it's...

    Desktop folder thumbnails and video thumbnails are not showing

    I don't work on computers or anything otherwise I'd have better advice. As I said before, I had an issue like this but I upgraded to an SSD and that solved it. Hit the windows button and search "File explorer options". Select View and make sure "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is not...

    What storage device do you use? When I had an HDD I experienced this problem all the time. I upgraded to an SSD and I haven't had that issue since.

    SSD random 100% disk usage/freezes

    I'm still having the issue. I tried to enable AHCI in the bios but it freezes after I save on the bios splash screen.

    SSD random 100% disk usage/freezes

    Also why is it freezing if there is so little read/write data? http://prntscr.com/nfxayu My benchmark says it can handle way more read/write speeds than what it freezes up at? Also I just now saw this, is this a problem? http://prntscr.com/nfxcb7

    SSD random 100% disk usage/freezes

    I've already tried sfc scannow and chdsk. My ssd is good, nothing bad about it. Ill download process explorer, but when it freezes task manager says everything is at 0mb/s. Hopefully that will have some useful information.

    SSD random 100% disk usage/freezes

    Hey guys, I'm back here again for some help, seems like I have some sort of issue every few months. I have a 500Gb Samsung 860 EVO, and randomly (2-10) times an hour it will be at 100% usage and my computer freezes (anywhere from 15 seconds to 2 minutes). When I say freezes, I mean I can still...

    It’s 80%+ efficiency. I didn’t see any certification on it. Please give me grace, I’m just a poor college student that likes light gaming.

    I wanted to get th EVGA 450w, but Best Buy was out. Don’t freak out, but I got an Insignia 450w. I know that their brand isn’t the best, but it was like 50$, I didn’t want to wait like a week to get a new one in the mail.

    They claimed it was a bad power supply, I knew it was either that or the motherboard. They said the cheapest replacement that could find was 130$, plus a 99$ service fee. I went to Best Buy and got a 40$ one and installed it myself. I’ll let you know if it works or not once I get home with it.

    No I have not. For the first time, I took it to a PC repair shop. At the very least they are doing a free diagnostic on the hardware. I’ll let you know what becomes of it.

    Computer having troubles starting up and shutting down.

    The thermals are fine, I monitored them before my computer bit the dust, the fans work. I’m leaning towards the motherboard rather than PSU. I’ve had random freezes and other issues for the past few months. I’ll check the PSU if my motherboard is fine.
