    Try booting with one stick of memory and you may also want to try changing the SATA mode selection to see if that does anything.

    While that is an older CPU you're still likely to see the most general benefit from a GPU upgrade, especially if you get something on the higher end. But you're going to want to upgrade that other...

    Just placing a folder isn't enough. You need to format it with a boot sector. There are various tools to do this, just Google a bit for "bootable usb".

    If you have not you should contact support. They need to know if updates are causing things to break.

    Kinda seems like it. Did you clear the CMOS after changing the CPU?

    It will not harm the chip and that's to be expected if the fan is low or off. Also note that mobile chips do tend to run hotter due to the constrained space so if you've had a desktop PC with even a...

    USB doesn't deliver enough power to charge and power components while doing anything intensive. And using an undersized charger is going to fool the machine into thinking it's charging but it won't...

    If it can maintain 60c without that fan, that's fine. Modern silicon chips don't even throttle until 80c+ anyway. It does this so the user isn't bothered by fans when they aren't needed.

    The simplest thing would be to find the directory under Program Files, rename it, and reinstall the software. If that doesn't work you might have to search the registry for GPU Tweak related keys and...

    That's kind of interesting with the inverted consoles. I don't think I would have considered that.

    Must be nice to have everything in a useable state even if you've got more to do.

    I'm guessing you've tried connecting the hub to the other ports on the laptop? If you haven't I would definitely try that.

    I doubt anyone swapped the GPU. That would be a huge undertaking. More likely the whole board was swapped by a previous owner.

    Keep in mind that benchmark leaderboards can be skewed by different...

    Just remember if you format everything you lose the recovery partition. That said, I generally prefer a clean install and don't use factory recovery partitions anyway.

    If a fresh install of...

    Is this a clean install of Windows? If not then that's where I'd start.

    FWIW, if you don't have specific damage warranting replacement they can be reused. Even with a tear they could be used if you can get them lined up. The main issues I would look out for is if they...

    I'd also check to see if you have the newest chipset driver. Beyond that I'm not sure if there are any related BIOS settings. I doubt there would be anything that would force it to operate at such a...

    I'm just jealous you live near a Microcenter. :) They always seem to have the best prices and they actually seem to care about scalping.

    As you may have discovered in your research, one of the most common failures in older electronics is failed capacitors. So you could do a visual inspection to see if anything appears swollen or...

    I know this isn't a scientific approach, but if you can't find the information and you don't have calipers to measure then you could buy a multi-pack of pads at different thicknesses and then hold...

    Does the G2 have updatable firmware? It's possible that even if it's primarily the motherboard mishandling the connection HP may be able to patch the headset to workaround the issue, especially if...

    Bearcat,
    As you may already be aware, absence from the QVL doesn't mean it was tested and failed. It could be that 3600 kit simply wasn't being sold or wasn't available in the testing lab. Given...

    Prior to this was there any sign something was going wrong? Crashes, reduced battery life, anything?

    JD still may not be wrong. In rare situations a power supply may fail in such a way that it can...

    You should contact ASUS support via phone. If this is caused by a Windows store update then support is probably aware and may be able to advise you.
