Monitor, keyboard, mouse unresponsive, computer on

Hi, I bought this computer in November 2020, windows 10. The first problem I had with it was on startup, I would get the error message  ‘B1Initialized library failed 0XC00000bb.’ I solved this by turning off fast startup, but it might be part of the problem, idk. So, after this a few weeks later, I was playing a game and the monitor, keyboard and mouse suddenly turned off, while the computer remained on. Mouse, keyboard were unresponsive, and the power button also was unresponsive, so I had to unpower the computer. When turned back on, everything worked fine as normal. It happened again a few weeks later, so I brought it in to the store I bought it (I have warranty). They said it was because I had not updated my graphics card with the latest driver, okay.


So I thought thats what the problem was, so then I made sure I always had the latest update for the driver. Another few weeks go by, no problems, all is good, and then, when I plugged in my speakers to the computer, same thing happened, monitor, keyboard, mouse turn off (wasn’t playing a game this time), computer on, power button unresponsive, I must switch off the computer in the back, or turn off power bar again. Turn computer back on again, no problems. Another few weeks go by, no problems, and I get a new gaming mouse. At first, no problems, all is good, but, next day, same thing happens, again while not playing a game. Really not sure what’s going on, but I think it has something to do with my computer not reacting well with new devices, their drivers, or something. I worry that next time I get a new device, same thing will happen. Any advice would be much apprectiated.


Here are my specs


Gigabyte Technology A520M DS3H AC

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-core Processor

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650

ACPI x64-based PC

Lexar 500GB SSD

Hardware Security Modules Market – Overview

Hardware security modules (HSMs) is a device that safeguards and manages authentication, crypto processing and provides security for sensitive data. In businesses, HSMs protects transactions, identities and applications as it helps in securing crypto graphic keys, authentication and digital signing services for a wide range of applications. Moreover, it is used to secure trade secrets, ensuring that only authorized individuals can access the HSMs to complete a cryptography key transaction. Also, multiple HSMs can be used together to provide public key management without slowing down applications. HSMs can be integrated in any application that uses digital keys to secure the sensitive data. In enterprises, HSMs protects public key infrastructures (PKIs), virtual environments and cloud architectures. In public key infrastructure (PKI) environment, HSMs is used by registration authorities (RAs) and certification authorities (CAs) for securing applications and manufacturing the next generation of PKI. Also, it is used to protect identities, applications, transactions and data in new technologies. Additionally, in banking sector, HSM is used to perform tasks such as PIN calculations or payment protocols.

Goodbye Yellow Brick Road — Thousands Leave The Bay Area – CBS San Francisco

By CBS San Francisco Staff

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Like thousands of other tech workers, William Hauser came to the San Francisco Bay Area from Ohio seeking a bright future in the epicenter of the digital world.

There were obstacles — high rents, an ever skyrocketing cost of living, long hours at work. Then the coronavirus struck. In mid-March, tech giants including Salesforce, Apple, Google and Twitter sent their staffs home to work remotely and smaller firms followed suit. As the lockdown lingered, the luster wore off and Hauser joined the exodus from the Bay Area.

“Honestly, I started being a software engineer, I got into computers, because it’s convenient to be able to work remotely,” Hauser said as he was loading up a U-Haul in his San Francisco neighborhood in the fall. “Now that everyone has been working remote, and policies aren’t cemented at least until next year, there’s no reason to stay here when I could go back to family and work remotely there.”

As the months wore on, moving vans and U-Hauls became a common sight on neighborhood streets as the retreat from San Francisco and the Bay Area gained momentum.

Hauser wasn’t alone. Richard Matsui, CEO of San Francisco-based kWh Analytics, relocated to back to Hawaii.

He grew up in Honolulu. After high school, he left for the U.S. mainland and Asia for educational and career opportunities and never expected to be able to leave the Bay Area and still be able to run the company.

Then the pandemic shut down child care options in San Francisco for his baby born in January. He and his wife planned to come to Honolulu for a month so that his mother could help with the baby. A month turned into two and then six.

“If there’s an opportunity now to take mainland salaries and our mainland jobs and to execute them well from Hawaii, I do think that Hawaii has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to diversify the economy and … take advantage of the fact that our core strength in Hawaii is a tremendously wonderful place to live and to raise kids,” he said.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk also departed the Silicon Valley, moving to Texas, but he did keep his headquarters in the Bay Area. That wasn’t the case for tech giant Oracle and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, who both announced moves out of state.

Musk recently compared California’s situation to sports teams.

“They (successful sports teams) do tend to get a little complacent, a little entitled, and then they don’t win the championship anymore,” Musk said of California. “(California) has been winning for a long time. And I think they’re taking them for granted a little bit.”

The numbers bore out the trend. An industry survey found that more people were leaving California than moving into state, continuing a trend that coupled with fewer births slowed the growth rate in the nation’s most populous state to a record low amid the pandemic that is reshaping its future.

Officially, California added 21,200 people from July 1, 2019, to July 1, 2020, increasing the state’s population a paltry 0.05% to 39.78 million people — still by far the most of any state.

But the bigger news from the new population estimate was that 135,600 more people left the state than moved here. It’s only the 12th time since 1900 the state has had a net migration loss, and the third largest ever recorded.

The exodus also drove down rents. Analysts at AdvisorSmith found that 10 of the top 25 cities in the U.S. where rents are fell the most, were in the Bay Area.

San Francisco was number 4 in the nation, after Odessa, TX (1); Midland, TX (2); and Williston, North Dakota (3). Other Bay Area communities include Mountain View (5), Sunnyvale (6), Redwood City (8), San Mateo (11), Oakland (15) and San Jose (19).

The range of the drop has varied wildly based on location. In San Francisco, rents have fallen from $2,650 per month to $2,081 since 2019. That’s a 26% drop. In Walnut Creek (76), the rent drop was much less: only a 3.7% drop from $2,574 per month to $2,512.

When it came to those who stayed in the Bay Area, a desire for home ownership — fueled by low interest rates and the need for more space while working remotely — buoyed the real estate market.

According to a California Association of Realtors report, the median price for an existing, single-family home in the Bay Area was $1,060,000 in September, which was down 0.7% from August’s all-time high but up 20.5% from September of last year.

“Buyer demand remains robust,” said Jordan Levine, the association’s deputy chief economist. “We see that in the mortgage applications, we see that in the price numbers for the Bay Area, in the unsold inventory numbers which declined. That is driving this rebound in sales, but it is also making the market more competitive.”

Others planned to stay in California, but relocate outside the Bay Area where home prices were more reasonable. Home sales soared in the Lake Tahoe area.

“We’ve seen a large number of transplants from other areas,” said Rhonda Keen, president of the South Tahoe Association of Relators. “It’s not just tech-workers either. We’re getting all kinds demographics buying homes without even seeing the property.”
