  1. Win10 deactivated (I didn't change H/W)


    Hi All - while attempting to troubleshoot another PC I naively took out my SSD with a long time working/activated Win10 and popped it in the other machine. Very quickly I thought uh-oh and put it back in the original and unchanged PC. Now my machine thinks my hardware has changed and it's all deactivated for me. The Win10 version was installed and licenced in a local shop - they charged me top dollar but didn't give me a key - so just some OEM licence not linked to me in any way. Any suggestions (clearly I'll go back to the shop - but if the licence key is attached to h/w - the h/w hasn't changed ……….)….???

    Many thanks!

    :)

  3. Volume Mute Light won´t change color


    Before I follow your suggestions, a quick update: as the updating didn´t seem to work I stopped trying and just left it alone for awhile. About a half hour later I looked over and saw that the mute light was now blue. I tried the button but it and the volume buttons did not work at all. On the screen I was told that I needed to reboot, which I did and now the system has returned back to the way it was before: everything works except that the mute light does not change to blue as it should when the speakers are not muted. WTF?

    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
