  4. Cristi you can help, I installed decurand windows 10 and installed all drivers less chipset motherboards have problems with Windows receive many errors and moved hard, these problems can be caused due to failure to install the driver for chipset or that because I have these problems.

    • Well what do you think?
      Driver chipset efficient electrical connection.
      And Windows is a generic driver, but can not compare with the official driver.
      FIRST chipset driver must be installed after installing the operating system. But probably go now.

    poor thing what stress eat now… don't worry we trust you! 😉

  6. Cristi, there is a correct method of partitioning a hard drive? Tomorrow I will ship the new PC and I understood that if properly partitioned hard drive will last longer. HDD has 1TB storage space. I was thinking this way: 180 GB for operating system and some programs and the rest, ie 820 GB remain for games and multimedia. Or would be another method: 120 880 OS and those that remain to them equally divided.

    • Adrian Gudus said

      We already have a tutorial on this topic and it's called "How to properly partition a hard drive" which you can find with the search box on the top right

    • Hi… after formatting your hdd will no longer have 1 tb storage space, you will be left with 965 gb if I'm not mistaken… .180 gb for the operating system is very much… you can use around 60 - 70 gb, it is more than enough… you can use the rest of the space as you wish, one partition or two at most… good luck!

      • I thought better year: 150 GB for operating system and some programs, and what remains (850 GB) to make two partitions of each 425 GB each.

  7. hahaha yes Failla windows as usual. microsoft Busesti syst always when a new windows and usually lasts a lot to rezlova. still use windows and asked to go on linux ,, well ,, I never had any problem to make a catch. in windows yes.
