    Have you tried measuring the CMOS battery voltage to see if it's still good ?

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    If you only do office stuff, web browsing and watch videos on YouTube the integrated HD2500 will do fine and take less power.

    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.
