#13 msi bios/HDD help in Hardware
RahmedMobo = B450-A pro max
Usb = 64gb (56gb shown on file explorer) exFat (only option to format besides NTFS)

This is probably your issue, the filesystem almost definitely has to be FAT32, and you'll want to use an MBR not GPT. Most people recommend a 16GB or smaller drive, but 64 will probably be fine and you could always try making the partition smaller than 16GB if it still doesn't work. Google should be able to walk you through how to get it formatted correctly. It's also worth trying a USB 2.0 drive if you're using a USB 3 one.

If worse comes to worst and I find it's bricked, is there a recommended better motherboard I can buy?

You'll never need to buy a new motherboard in the case of a corrupted bios, in the absolute worst case you can use an external SPI programmer to flash a working bios firmware onto the chip, it's a quick and easy process if you have the tools available or know someone who does. If not, any repair shop will also be able to do it for you.

#3 help is my pc dying? in Q/A Help

If you do a fresh windows install on a spare drive and can reproduce it there, probably. If it can't be reproduced there, probably not. If that's too much hassle, at least try a full clean reinstall of gpu drivers. There are also tools you can download that can perform an integrity test of your system ram or gpu's vram.

#4 DX8 type visibility in DX9? in TF2 General Discussion

Funnily enough on linux/mac tf2 (which uses dxlevel 90) you can entirely disable fog by using the -nops2b launch option, seemingly because pixel fog mode is forced regardless of if there's support for it or not, which there apparently isn't with 2.0b disabled.


Unfortunately that's exactly zero help for windows, and obviously not likely to be rgl legal anyways.

In theory you could modify shaders (which aren't ever included in or considered by sv_pure, for whatever reason) to disable some or all fog, but of course that too should be illegal in rgl.

#10 Why use P-REC over integrated demo support? in TF2 General Discussion
NoNoeWayNope, it works perfectly fine. Many people in low divs (including myself) use it.

I think Mr. billw's saying it additionally records valve casual games (not necessarily desired) since they also use mp_tournament, not that it doesn't work at all.

#2 cant load in demos in Q/A Help

Seems as though the july 25th update broke playback of most or all demos recorded prior to it, so far the workarounds are to use an earlier version of the game or to use the pre_07_25_23_demos branch which can be selected under the betas tab in game properties

#12 Is windows 7 still worth it in Hardware
TwiggyVac conflict = vac ban or inability to join vac servers ?

whichever it is, it's likely a drawback specific to that windows re-distribution he mentioned, as the spectre and meltdown mitigations can be disabled just fine (eg. using inspectre or manually changing the settings yourself) without any relation to or impact on VAC.

#3 TF2 lag in TF2 General Discussion

Chances are you're using Optimus/MSHybrid which means the internal display is connected to the Vega iGP, games are running on the NVIDIA gpu, and each frame has to be copied from one gpu to the other in order to be displayed (incurring some potentially significant overhead).

If your laptop has a 'mux switch', you can connect the internal display directly to the 1660 Ti and alleviate this. If not, you could try using an external monitor if you have one, as the display outs on most dual gpu laptops are connected to the discrete gpu (this can be verified in NVIDIA Control Panel). If neither of those things are an option, it could be worth a shot to try running tf2 on the AMD iGP instead of NVIDIA, as it may actually run better that way due to no copy overhead.

Of course your cpu is on the weaker side like doiku said, so make sure nothing's using much cpu time apart from tf2, verify it's not being thermal throttled into the ground, and if HP provides any settings relating to cTDP or other power limits, set them to the highest available.
