    JoeP - Thanks for the reply. The older computers have homegroups that were created at about the time Win8 was released (I think). At one time, I think the two older computers worked as desired. I...

    I have made more attempts to get the homegroup to work and managed to get computers B and D to show the network behavior I wanted. The problem seems to be similar to my original post. Computer A...

    I have spend several days trying to get the computers to communicate. I would like for Homegroup to work, but I cannot make it do anything. I have added a 4th computer, so the mix looks like this:...

    I returned the Skylake to Intel and they sent a new one. I put the new one in and the computer POSTed immediately. I then installed the Samsung 950 Pro and it was recognized as a drive when I went...

    I may have resolved this myself. I found that Control Panel has a networking option that allows passwords to be turned off, so I turned them off. Now, I need to verify that I have them off on each...

    FN - Thanks for the links. It didn't occur to me to search for info on this. The pictures from PC Gamer look like the bending I saw on my Skylake.

    Meanwhile, the mobo swap is happening, so I...

    Since ASUS told me that the RAM I had was not supported, they would not pursue any other solution. So, I returned the RAM and took the shipping and restocking loss. I bought new RAM after first...

    I must be using the wrong reference file. The one I have is the PDF of the ASUS board manual. It is locked in such a way that it is not possible to copy any highlighted text, nor is it possible to...

    FN - Thanks. I assumed that the RAM would work because it was advertised to be for the Z170 chipset. The memory I selected was Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400 (2x8GB). It was also within the frequency...

    I have found the problem. The ASUS tech help guy did a pretty good job. It turned out that there were two problems. The first (big surprise) was that I had somehow bent the edges of the CPU card. ...

    RG - That may be a problem. I have thought about putting a HD in or simply removing the M.2. The thing that is perplexing is that there are two fans plugged into the mobo. When I press the start...

    New ASUS build will not post

    I just tried to start my new build with ASUS Maximus VIII Formula. It will not POST. I have a Samsung M.2 950 Pro mounted on the board and no hard drives connected. There are two optical drives...

    PROBLEM SOLVED -- AT LAST!

    I suspected that whatever was causing the optical drive to not work was related to the controllers. This morning, I decided to give it one more try, so I moved the SATA...

    Another step I took this morning... I went to the Gigabyte customer support page and asked them the question. If you have ever used this option, you know that it is tedious to fill out their...

    Thanks for the replies (mr & FN). The optical drive (DVD R/W) in the new case is not one used in the old case. The old case had a DVD ROM and a BluRay R/W. The drive in the new case was working...

    CLiNT -- There is not much I can do about the Z87 at this point, since that Gigabyte board will soon be my "old" computer board. I had absolutely no problems with it for the 3 years before I...

    RockE - Thanks for the reply.

    I didn't move the power supply. Both are rated above 600 watts, which is high for a system that does not use a GPU. Both power supplies are PC Power and Cooling...
  20. Can't make my SATA controllers work with my drives

    In preparation for a new build, I moved the guts of my old computer to a different case, to free up the better case. Now, my mobo will only allow me to use 6 total drives. Before I moved it, I had...

    Thanks for the comments. The reading I did this morning (specs for RAM) showed some of them listed for Z170 boards, which is what the ASUS board uses. I don't have a need for fast RAM, so I will...
  24. advice on selecting DDR4 to match mobo requirements

    I want to build a new rig on the ASUS ROG Maximus VII Formula mobo. I found and downloaded the manual for it. I am concerned that, if I buy RAM that is not on their approved list, it will fail...
