    MY PC sucks


    I realize this is about hardware so not sure where to post this but here it goes. So I got this dell laptop a while ago and it is slow as hell. It is

    inter core i7 2.5 GHz or something and it says upto 3.9GHz so I am assuming it can be overclocked about that much.
    8 GB Ram
    Intel(R) Iris Plus Graphics wi th shared graphics memory and I can watch 4k vids on it.
    Comes with a year of mcafee subscription.
    And has windows 10 home 64 bit operating system.

    So those are the specs and it is slow as hell. This is my first time on windows 10 and it is not bad but do I need 12 or 16GB of ram for the system to run fast?

    Dell didn't send a windows 10 installation usb or something as well so I could reinstall everything and get rid of all the bloatware. This laptop doesn't have a dvd/cd drive so I am assuming that technology is obsolete now.

    Also when I send the pc to sleep. It wakes up sometimes by itself or if I touch the keyboard it wakes up too. I talked to dell and they told me to update the bios. I updated the bios from dell's website and it hasn't solved the problem.

    Also the fan is beneath the laptop so my lap gets pretty warm when I use it. And putting the mouse into usb port or putting the earphone into the earphone jack/port is so hard and I have to force it in.

    So it is slow and I am not impressed.

    I have been using the laptop for just about a week or so and I am not sure whether to send it back and buy another one with 16GB of ram. But that would be a big hassle and I don't want to do it.

    Should I just call dell to send me a windows 10 USB so I could reinstall everything from scratch and hopefully that would make it a bit faster or what? I think if i get a 16GB system it would be the same since windows 10 is so heavy.

    I am new to windows 10 and I could disable some services which are not necessary but I haven't tried a tutorial online to suggest which services to disable but I am not sure if that is going to solve things. All in all it is slow and I am not impressed.

    I bought this laptop for about $900 canadian dollar which is about $700 US and I thought it wouldn't be so bad. But the design and everything is so cheap looking and the usb ports are so hard to plug usb devices and same with earhphone jack. So I am not impressed at all.

    Should I reinstall windows or send it back(which I don't want since it would be a hassle) or else what should I do?

    :)

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??

  3. 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.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    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 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.
