    Pooter won't boot

    Hmmm.... Have you tried uninstall the video device from the device manager, and remove its driver as well? The shutdown, restart PC Would be weird if both cards were broken... Is the DP cable and monitor connected to the card in this situation? Maybe the DP cable or monitor has an issue and feeds back the problem to Windows? Easy check, disconnect it If you have a spare harddisk or SSD, I'd connect that, and install W10 freshly on it. Should be fast, and it will then tell you whether it's a Windows issue or a hardware issue. Similar to what Crash stated: you could try and run Ubuntu from a USB stick, and see how that works - with DP and all ...

    Remove the card, re-seat it, check its connectors (power). It could be broken.... And if you use the other of the pair? Is it the same result? You could even swap them in their slots?

    Oh dear... now that's not good... I'd try and go for an as minimal as possible config to start with: - only one 1070 in the case, monitor connected to it. - only one memory module - No drives connected, or any other devices: well, a keyboard might be a good idea. Depending on results (error messages) I'd work from there: Hook up the boot disk (SSD?) - retry. etc.... step by step. See what gives. Do you have a laptop or anyway to get on TS? Oh wait, the weather's too nice for this stuff

    Graphics issues

    Maybe de-activate all mods first. Next, I think I'd try a complete uninstall/reinstall of the entire game. (Save a copy of Data/Input so you may not have to re-enter all key/button bindings.) Because I cannot imagine this being the graphics card... Not if it runs fine afterwards - it should show issues further on too... That's what I would try ...

    Too bad Youtube don't have FastForward, like x4, that'd save you some time!

    Laptops ??

    I do not get why you would want to downsize to a laptop? When in cockpit, you'd still be sitting in a chair, with joystick, throttle (pedals?) and you would need a screen to look at, 17" may do - but have you ever tried to hold a 17" laptop on your lap? All the stuff needed around the pc's takes plenty of room anyways, and there should thus be room for a desktop box? If you want to browse the internets from like the couch ... go for a tablet! Or well, maybe use this type of controller?
  9. Looking good... A bit too rocky indeed every now and then...
  10. wow... that is cool ... One would kinda hope you 've removed the Ctrl and E keys from the keyboard though ...

    DCS Stable Release Version Update 03-04-19

    Amazing how little happened while I was randomly flipping switches and pressing buttons in there after Painlesss' landing It's a hoot though, that thing... So, these are the I items got under contriol now: - Instrument and cockpit lighting - Flares (In pairs or all in one go) - Chaffs - Emergency Canopy release. - Reading the fuel gage - Frantically pressing the 'Master Caution' light.

    Cool... but it's just that I'm not really feeling organic at all ?
