    Pending OP Response Random application crashes and BSODs

    Thanks (y) No rush here as I will most likely not be around until Sunday UK time now. When you purchase a dual channel kit of RAM you will get two identical sticks that are from the same batch, they may be the exact same spec of RAM as what you have previously had but they are not from the...

    In Progress Motherboard recommendation for Windows 11?

    Depends on what version of Windows you have, OEM/System builders or full retail, doesn't apply to MS Office only Windows, see my canned explanation below; Unless your present product key is the full retail version you cannot use it with a new MB as an OEM product key is tied to the original MB...

    Pending OP Response Dwm.exe keeps crashing Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll

    Windows corruption is what is causing it. Download yourself a new Windows 10 ISO for free from here using method two. Clean install Windows 10 using the ISO then install the chipset, storage/SATA and GPU drivers and in that exact order. If a legitimate Windows 10 product key has ever been...

    Pending OP Response Huge FPS drops when playing, never happened before

    I did I'm afraid :whistle: Change the Windows Power Plan to Balanced, your GPU will not get enough power otherwise. Download, install and make Chrome your default browser. See how things go after that.

    A new MB also means that you have to purchase a new Windows product key as well :(

    Pending OP Response Dwm.exe keeps crashing Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll

    That is odd - has the product key only ever been used on this computer and with the same motherboard, if the answer to either is "no" that would explain the error. thread post on the MS support site here regarding the same issue.

    Pending OP Response Random application crashes and BSODs

    No problem it`s just that it is most frustrating when we are helping someone and they go off, do their own thing, end up in troble and then post back and say "didn`t work" This was because you had a mismatch of RAM in both channels. The computer booted fine because you had matching RAM in...

    Can we have a new Speccy url so we can make sure that all traces of Kaspersky have gone. Can you translate what the below say`s, i`m guessing that it says power saver or similar. Power Profile Active power scheme: Economia de energia

    Couple of things going on there but the most significant one is that you are shown to be using an unlicensed/cracked version of Windows 10. Error: (10/12/2021 02:37:29 PM) (Source: SideBySide) (User: ) Description: Activation context generation failed for...

    In Progress Help with getting signal getting detected on monitors

    Not a good sign I`m afraid :( You getting a No Signal message on the monitors confirms that your screens are ok and that the problem is with the source of the video, initially that would have been the GPU but with that removed it comes down to the CPU as that is what provides the onboard...

    In Progress Help with getting signal getting detected on monitors

    Please clarify whether or not the add on GPU was completely removed from the PCI_E slot on the MB when you tried the display port on the MB.

    Thread closed due to lack of feedback from the OP.

    This should not have been done without first posting back to be advised on the next suggested step.

    Will deal with one thing at a time so as to avoid overloading or confusing you. Any third party software that you install on your computer can impact performance and AV programs like AVG, Kaspersky, McAfee and Norton are among the worst, as previously stated you don`t want or need Kaspersky...
