Have you tried measuring the CMOS battery voltage to see if it's still good ?
I had a motherboard from a similar era starting to have problems at POST (forgotten CMOS settings, failed overclock...

To uniformize across folders, setup one with the view and headers that you want, then click "Organize" at the top left of the window, and choose "Folder and search option".
Then, on the View tab,...

Why do you have 2 cards in Crossfire if you do not intend to do gaming? One 7770 is well enough for Photoshop.
Depending on how much you're into audio, you might want to drop the discrete...

If you are in the enthusiast market you might want to take a look at the Socket 2011 platform. It does not feature integrated graphics and have both quad and...

Sad :( I don't use Winamp anymore but used the good ol' 2.80 for at least 5 years.

From the article, it seems the C2D actually supports the instruction and the motherboard itself is the culprit. It might be fixable with a BIOS update, but it's probably not worth the hassle for...

Who in hell would rent a computer in the first place? (applies to water heaters and furniture as well)
This has scam written all over it.

Thanks for the heads up, removed around 3GB of cruft on my system :)
(edit: 7GB on my other one :eek: This is a must-run if you have an 128GB or less SSD)
I stopped using the Windows Disk...

Botched? Seems more like a conspiracy to sabotage XP once and for all :p

What I really love about this is the Acrobat Reader source code in the wild, so somebody can dissect it to see how a goddamn PDF-reading software can be that bloated.
The whole Acrobat software is...

I never had any issues with MSSE (except a minor issue with uTorrent a while ago). I really like the "baseline" bloat and no-nonsense of it compared to, for example, the god-awful NOD32 we use at...

Yesterday I clicked on the "Check for updates" link in Windows Update and the broken updates disappeared, it seems like it's solved now.

Got the infinitely repeating updates on my secondary PC with Office 2007, my main one with Office 2010 is fine though.

Yeah, I'd rather "waste" $35 on Chromecast to have a great Netflix/YouTube app than have a crappy version embedded in my TV. "Smart" TVs are IMO an horrible idea from the start.

Does your network/Internet connection work correctly on that computer ?

Then you might have downloaded Firefox from a fishy place. If you get Firefox directly from Mozilla (getfirefox.com) it should not come with everything else.
Otherwise, here is an article showing...

Not entirely sure, somebody correct me if I'm wrong on that: I think standard Cat 5e network cable is fine for 1Gb as long as the distance is not excessive.
Cat 6 is "certified" for use with 1Gb,...

That's probably because the secondary DVI port is only active when the driver is installed, the same reason why you would not see anything before Windows (because the driver finishes initializing...
August 15th, 2013, 06:15 PM
I assume you use DVI ? If so, try using the other DVI port (if you have more than one) on your main video card. It's likely the "secondary" one only initializes once in Windows.

Ditto, In almost any cases, upgrading even from a 80+ Bronze to a 80+ Gold or Platinum will not pay for itself unless you use it 24/7 for 2 years or so, especially since Gold/Platinum tend to be very...

Yeah, I read the pre-release stuff as well and assumed the +400 MHz Turbo Boost bin overclocks would still be available on non-K parts. Now the most that can be done is slight BCLK adjustments and...
July 29th, 2013, 03:34 PM
Are you really sure of that ? Apparently the higher BCLK straps are only available on the K models. Also, for Haswell Intel seems to have removed the slight Turbo boost OC on the non-K parts so...

If you only do office stuff, web browsing and watch videos on YouTube the integrated HD2500 will do fine and take less power.
However, if you intend to do gaming or work with software using the GPU...

Translation : his current cooling is inefficient so he purchased a water cooling setup very cheap.
If it's your first open-loop WC setup, just be sure to test for leaks before putting it on...

Yes, more than 4GB is useless without a 64-bit OS. You might be able to use the excess memory for a RAM Disk though.
