    Changing log in question


    I am using windows 10 pro version 1903. Recently, I thought someone had found out what my sign in password was on my computer. (when I start up my computer and then log in) I am the only person on the computer. I changed it to some long password and wrote it down. I found out I was wrong so I really do not want that long of a password now. I am trying to change it back and when it asks for my current password, it tells me that it is the wrong password. So I restarted the computer and had no trouble signing in with the long password. I am going to accounts/log in and that is where I am trying to change it. The only thing that I have noticed is when I start up the computer and on the screen it says "John" (not my real name) But when I go to change the password it asks for the password for "John-PC/John" When I check my account it says only "John" I really do not remember ever making a password for "John-PC?John" I really do not understand why I can sign in to my computer with this long password, but when it asks for my current password, it says that the long password is incorrect. I am doing it exactly the same as I did when I changed the old password to the long password. Thanks.

    :)

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:

    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.

    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    New CPU cooler for Ryzen questions and suggestions

    Your Ryzen 7 1700X should be close to 4.0GHz anyway, so overclocking is pointless.
    If the computer freezes then there should be an error listed in the crash logs, most likely a clock watchdog timeout, changing the cooler won't fix it.
    I'd suggest leaving the CPU stock and clocking your Ram up a bit.
