  • Hi! Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but having trouble running the Steam version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Just got the Definitive edition of the game and when I run it I simply get the prompt that Steam is launching the game and then nothing.

    The game just runs in the background - as in nasa task manager sya and walang error message lumabas or anything. All my other games work fine. I can't even get into the game even when I switch to it in the taskbar. Tried launching the game with -fullscreen parameter and still no dice. Only way to shut it down is to force shutdown sa task manager. Pero no error messages. Steam even logged me a playing the game for almost an hour na, when most of the time puro restart lang ginawa ko.

    Running a Razer Blade 15 with the ff specs:
    i7-9750H (CPU has a -135mV undervolt, but I don't think that has anything to do with it)
    RTX2060 (updated to the latest drivers last night)
    16GB RAM
    Windows 10 64-bit (fully updated as of last night)

    Read in the steam forums to try installing VC redistributables, which I did, pero wala rin.

    Heh, these are the hassles that kind of remind me why I quit PC gaming awhile back :P

    Welp. Figured out what caused my problem: It was displaying on Monitor 2 running on the integrated graphics (I have no idea how it happened honestly).

    Anyways, after deleting and reinstalling the game plus reinstalling the Geforce drivers, game is running perfectly.

  • It’s me again.
    Board na ba problem kapag mag oon then off? Or baka faulty ram slots or ram na? Bootloop minsan, minsan nag oon for 20-30 mins then mag rerestart. Working both ung Ram modules ko.

    5years na ung board kaya yun lang naisip ko na defective sakin.
  • I have this issue sa monitor ko. after ko i on yung PC, the monitor will just display the manufacturer's logo (which is normal) but will fail to proceed to windows. naka hang na lang siya. but you will hear the windows' sound loading in the background. Sometimes, distorted yung image ng logo. I have to turn it off and on several times sa surge protector before siya papasok sa windows.

    What do you think is the problem? repairable kaya ito?

    @Kimetsu

    this is a common HDMI issue, if your looking elsewhere, this is also very common on game console specially ps3 and ps4 with defective HDMI.

    HDMI is designed to be hot-plug but unfortunately with this HDMI frying issue, you should turn off all the devices before messing with HDMI cables, make sure that the cable is snag fit as well.

    there's a 5v 50ma power on HDMI port, of course most of the TV standard dont follow that standard and instead throw something like 5v 2amps on it, this is for the CEC support for HDMI to work properly or for the HDMI dongles that is self-powered to work properly.

    Ano po kaya pwede gawin? Forever na yatang d magagamit HDMI :(
    I made sure naman na nakasalpak ng ayos yung HDMI, both from octagon yung isang HDMI tapos Lazada (Vention) naman yung isa
  • ^wala na yan, its basically a board level repair. dalhin mo na sa service center yung tv.
    in your case the motherboard of the TV needs a replacement, luckily that's only like 10-15% of the overall cost of the TV. So expect like 1-2k na gagastusin mo dyan.

    Napaltan na yung board sir, warranty pa kaya napalitan ng libre.
    Problem ko is, pano ko kaya maeexplain sa tech na nasisira yung board ng TV kapag sinasaksakan ng HDMI. Twice na ako nasisiraan. Possible kaya na PC ko na may problem? Haven't tested out another gadget like PS4, TV box etc., with HDMI, pero someone from another thread said that Ps4 Pro is working.
  • Patulong ayaw ma format yung ssd


  • Kapag kailangan ko i power on ang PC, need pindutin ng matagal ang power on switch para mag on ang PC. Minsan ok at nagpopower on agad. Minsan aantay ka ng more than 10 seconds bago mag on. Minsan kailangan pindutin ulit.
    Ano kaya problema nito? PSU? Switch?
    Kasi kung switch, dapat di na mag on. So tama ba na maaring PSU ang problema?
  • Dumb question: Can I run ethernet cables under the door? Balak ko sana ilipat yung router ko sa labas ng room, pero yung modem ng Converge hindi ko malipat eh.
  • @himura_drew
    oo naman
    basta may clearance yung cable at hindi tatamaan
    or maiipit pag binuksan/sinara yung pinto
