    Question Black textures in most games

    Lately, I've been noticing that in some games the textures have been glitching. They're just black squares, and not showing anything. I've been experiencing this in most of the games like ROBLOX, and Zula. Minecraft and CS: WaRzOnE on the other hand are just fine. This was happening in the past...

    I have the latest version of Photoshop (20.0.4) and some time last week it started behaving very weirdly. It refuses to open files, it refuses to save files, and it refuses to create files. If photoshop is not open and I locate a Photoshop Document, it opens that way but then I run into the...

    Question Displays not connecting when powering up

    I have two displays, one connected by HDMI and one by DVI. Normally they are plugged into the graphics card. For some reason when I power up normally, I have to unplug/plug in my HDMI monitor for it to recognize, but it always happens and I don’t think it’s related to the issue. Neither screen...

    I’m not sure if I am in the right place for this information. If not, references would be welcome. My brother sent me a picture of what appears to be a system labeled “EMPaC”. No other information is on the case, and we both have searched exhaustively to no avail. Would anyone happen to have...

    Is size of a motherboard important?

    For a gaming pc, which size of the motherboard should i go with ATX , Micro ATX, Mini ATX? Does it really matter which size i go for? Is an ATX motherboard an overkill since i am gonna use a single gpu or at the most two while the ATX motherboard provides multiple PCI-E slots?
