I want to cry :'(

02 June 2018 - 05:53 AM

So, I was at work and my laptop stopped charging. The tip of power cord was starting to fail like 2 or 3 weeks ago. I had to squeeze it and move it in order to charge. This time, I moved it, squeezed it, pulled it, etc and nothing. So, I removed the tip cover (soft plastic thingy) and re-soldered the tip. It worked for about 3 or 4 days. Then it stopped working. But this time it wasn't the tip, it was the brick itself. I was in a hurry, needed to finish employee payroll report so I could pay them and I was at 9% battery. So, I decided to cut entirely the cable and adapt another power brick from a dell laptop that we have on the studio, (Btw, my laptop is a samsung). The samsung power brick is 19 volts - 3.16 Amps, the dell one is 19.5 volts - 3.34 amps if I'm not wrong. What I though on the moment was "Well, I need to finish this today, if not my employees and the owner will kill me, It's just 0.5 volts and 0.18 amps higher, nothing bad should happen".

 

I finished the report, payed to everyone on the studio, and started playing some music while I was doing a shopping list for new equipment for the studio. The computer shut down unexpectedly. Time between I "adapted" the power cord and the shut down was about 1 hour. I immediately unplugged it and let it rest. Plugged it in again with the same adaptor and guess what? No charging light, wouldn't turn on either. I disconnected the power brick and the laptop, let it sit for some days, I don't even know how many and tried again. This time it turned on, I didn't even let it go through post screen. Immediately disconnected the power cord. I knew the computer was alive, so today I went to buy the new power adapted. Plugged it in aaaand... No power, no charging light, NOTHING! 

 

What might have happened? How probably is that I burnt the charge circuit ? (Keep it mind it was only 0.5 volts and 0.18 amps higher)

 

Btw, for those who know me and have chatted with me might know that the laptop is a Samsung Ativ Book 2, Core i3-3110, 8GB Ram and that this is my personal and only computer which is old now. Not slow at all, its actually surprisingly and inexplicably fast. It runs League of Legends max graphics at 60 fps, able to hit 333 fps on some deathrun maps, runs games like Dishonored, Metro 2033, Metro last light, Need for speed most wanted (new one), CoD black ops 2, CoD Advanced warfare, and even CoD black ops 3 without any problem at all, but, still its old and I want a better one to play newer games (Waiting for Metro Exodus) 

 

So, I'm thinking about getting a new, entry level Desktop computer, I have 2 builds in mind, one Intel and the other AMD, my budget is around 700 USD.

 

The systems I have in mind are:

 

Intel

 

Case: ROSEWILL Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case, Steel and plastic

CPU: i3-8100

Motherboard: Asrock B360M Pro 4

Ram: Patriot PC4-19200 (16GB) (Max frequency supported by this mobo)

PSU: EVGA 450W 80+ Bronce  

SSD: Adata Premier SP600   /   Storage: A 2 TB Seagate barracuda I have already

Video card: Geforce GTX 1050 Ti

 

AMD

 

Case: ROSEWILL ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3 2200G

Motherboard: Asrock Fatal1ty AB350 K4

Ram: Patriot Signature PC4-21300 (16GB) (Max frequency supported by this mobo)

PSU: EVGA 450W 80+ Bronce  

SSD: Adata Premier SP600   /   Storage: A 2 TB Seagate barracuda I have already

Video card: Geforce GTX 1050 Ti

 
What do you think? Which is better? Is there any way to get better specs with that budget? 
 
PS: This is a plan for January 2019, top February, so, for the moment I need to try and fix my laptop, any suggestions would be awesome. My main guess is that the charging circuit just got rekt hahaha

Blue sceens

So, I started working on a filming studio supervising all the electronic devices (computers, cameras, lights, etc)

We bought 2 new computers refurbished from HP

Basic specs are

I7-4770
4GB DDR3
SSD 120GB Adata

Im having an issue with them, they are showing blue screen at least 2 times a day. I ran a test on the drive where i introduced 35 gb of data having in mind that when NAND chips fails they become read only wich might cause bluescreen, it failed the test. It just copied 6 gb and stoped to 0 mb/s transfer rate. So, i concluded the drive was bad, i swaped it for a kingston ssd last week and yesterday it gave blue screen again. Any clues about what might be going on?

I also ran the same test the day i installed the new ssd and it copied all 35 gbs with no problem in like 4 or 5 minutes, tested it again right after bluescreen and it failed, reinstalled windows using media creation tool right away and it failed the test again. All the disk health programs ive used so far shows that the disks are ok, still they fail that test im doing
