I know I haven’t written a blog post for almost one month. I can calm you down my new PC has arrived in the meantime and it’s running like it should but I’m still installing add-ons and therefore there is a little delay with my videos.
Don’t worry there will be new videos in the next weeks but the installation of the add-ons lasted longer than planned. So I often sat in the evenings in front of my PC instead of any TV.
I must say I’m satisfied with my new PC but I have not used it very much since I have not cut much videos in the last weeks. I hope to change it in the next days but now that everything is running smoothly. It’s a custom design PC. I chose a shop that offers to build your own custom PC. During the assembly they realized the power supply was not compatible with the other compounds I had choosen so they asked me and they changed it to fit to the PC for free. At the end I got a better power supply than I ordered, … little error in the shop but as long as I don’t have any costs … no problem. The case of my new PC had almost one month of delivery time although we ordered it before May, 15th.
My new PC arrived at my apartment on June, 5th 2021 and I installed the whole Windows 10 stuff the same evening but the other programms I wanted to install had to wait at least a day. So I used the time after my working hours to install the needed programms one after another. It’s not a huge amount of programms but sometimes you see it just when you need it and then it’s missing.
That’s what happened several times but now everything is running and my working hours after work are hopefully more effective than in the last weeks. I have a ton of ideas what to do in the next weeks and months but this time the technique will hopefully work. I still have some add-ons that I want to install in the next days but then there will be hopefully more time again. These add-ons are very small and I hope that the amount of time that I need is not very huge.
I wasn’t able to fix the Windows update problem on my old PC until now but when you come back in a few days I hope that I can show it to you. Maybe you have the same problem?
In the meantime I consulted several forums to get the solution to my problem not being able to work with my lately updated Windows 10 version. Did I get answers? Yes, I did but they were not helpful. Why should I consult Nvidia for a problem with Windows 10? The latest driver is 3 years old. Sorry, I don’t get the point. Nvidia will say it’s a Windows problem. So the poor guy from India got a bad mark from me for his answer. It’s simply not helpful and it does not explain why Windows 10 forgets the driver any time I start my Windows 10. We had the problem 2 years ago too but it was fixable.
So we started to solve the problem with updating my Linux. Yes, I have more than one PC operating system on my PC. I have 3 on it and 2 of it accept the driver without problems. The next problem I had to focus was the problem to explain this. I know a bunch of people only use one operating system on their PC. The update was in general no problem. It only lasted several hours but being at work on a Wednesday and coming home and your PC got its update is a good feeling. Nevertheless we were not able to solve the DaVinci Resolve problem. I suppose my CPU is to old for making it run on my Linux desktop. My PC is from 2012. Graphic driver check, running but CPU not. Obviously the problem is that under Linux DaVinci Resolve is treated a bit like a neglected step-child. So what’s the solution to the problem? Guess what? Spending money and spending a lot of money to be more precise.
We hope to solve this stupid graphic driver problem with a new PC but not just a PC but a really high performance PC with a fast and up-to-date graphic card from Nvidia with hopefully a working driver under Windows 10. I guess it’s exactly what they industry wanted to hear but it’s sad somehow that this problem can only be solved with money and not with a quick fix.
I know this sounds weird but my last two weeks were very strange. After updating my Windows 10 on my main PC the graphic card was not able to work properly anymore. I know this sounds strange but the look is so awful now that I can’t work on my PC at the moment. The problem with NVidia and Windows 10 seems to be a real problem since the last update of Microsoft. I hope they’ll fix it to. For cutting videos this is not good but we found a solution. I now work on another PC running Windows 8. There’s no such problem with the graphic driver but I hope that we can fix the problem too. So I’m really glad that I bought an external drive for my video files. It’s small, easy and transportable.
If that would not be enough for one week I had a flat tire on my bike last week Tuesday after work with no tool to repair it immediately. So I cycled to the next bike workshop but they refused to help. I had to cycle with my flat tire through the city to the other end of it just to get my flat tire fixed. Due to the Windows thing I was late with my video and the tire even delayed my time-schedule. The good thing was that I got help immediately in the second workshop and 30 minutes later I could finally cycle home. That’s how I got an unplanned bike trip.
After working constantly on new videos I suddenly hit the 700 subscriber mark this week. I didn’t expect it to happen so soon but it really happened. I don’t really know what to say but thank you. A 700 subscriber video will follow soon. Let’s cross fingers that I can fix the PC problem soon.
