    Keyboard not waking PC from sleep - what setting am I missing?

    I am having the same problem as ss88 about not getting the PC to wake up. Work fine till I hooked up my new kb & mouse. I just received my new Dell KM7321W keyboard & Mouse. I have programed a key for sleep which works great, but can't seem to figure out how to wake? I am running Win11 pro. I...

    I figured it out. I downloaded AOEMI Backupper and it has a partition clone feature. I used that and I'm good to go. I do appreciate the help.

    Need some advice?

    Need help stuck in bios

    I'm trying to upgrade my pc from a 6 year old I5 to a Ryzen 7 5800x. The new MB is a MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge WIFI. I can get it to boot into the bios but can't get it to leave the bios.

    Need some advice?

    I forgot to mention that I have a 5 port gig hub out there. I use it to take 1 cable to the Roku and then us the other for that ancient laptop. SamirD I'm not quite sure I follow you on what you responded back with. See if I got this right. Take the Asus and hook the old ancient laptop to it...

    Older system graphics card upgrade?

    I have it installed and it runs great. With all the eye-candy turned on and AA set to max I'm getting frame rates in triple digits. I guess I can't blame my shitty driving on my video card now lol. I have a Corsair 750w PS so I'm good there. Thanks again for all the help and I'm a happy camper...

    Older system graphics card upgrade?

    Isn't Iracing CPU limited? I think I read it can use more than 4 threads. Iracing usually has a pretty good update about once a month. About a year ago I used to get frame rates in the 80's. Now on some tracks it's below 30. That is why I thought it was the video card. I found that I purchased...

    Older system graphics card upgrade?

    Hello all... I have an older PC that I only use to do some online racing (IRacing) on. It is starting to get a little long in the tooth in the graphics area.
