The issue is that even though i have a 20 mbps connection, the stream lags (especially if I put it to 1080p or even 720p). What i was wondering is if some type of software existed that delayed an incoming stre...

Re: Netflix or Hulu Plus?

my advice:

cancel cable.
cancel netflix.
cancel hulu plus.

Nothing to watch on cable but commercials.
Netflix movie selection SUCKS.
hulu isnt much better.

read books i guess.

Re: Getting disappointed lately...

okay so stop supporting devs who do crappy console ports... and dont pirate games. Buy games like Battlefield 3, and Arma 3 when they come out to support hardcore pc gaming. I know i will.

Re: Broken Desktop. How to test PSU?

in that case i just need to find out this. After i bridge green + black and put the power on... Where exactly do i put the 2 rods from the volt-meter to test each wire's voltage? Ill wear gloves so no worries there, just not sure how to proceed. Obviously 1 rod must go into the wire being tested. Bu...

Re: Broken Desktop. How to test PSU?

i know where to put a paperclip. The instructions you provided says that you need to have the psu plugged into a fan before you can go through testing it. which connector do i used to connect my fan to the psu given the one i have? (as is evident in the picture). Or are you suggesting to just bridge...

Re: Broken Desktop. How to test PSU?

okay so i took a look at the 2 videos. I dont have a tester so only the first one was relevant. However i ran into a major problem... My connectors on the Fan as well as the PSU are completely different. The psu has black connectors, the fan has a solid white one. I took a pic of both. I do NOT have...

Re: Broken Desktop. How to test PSU?

My video card is this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131339 . I also think that the connector is for the fan, but since the card is passively cooled they didnt include it. (b/c it actually has no fan). -I cant check cpu temps in bios because bios doesnt start up. All i get...

Re: PC Turns on then shuts off

its not a new computer. I have had it for over a year.

What do you mean by post? The monitor displays only 1 thing: that it is entering power saving mode. Thats it. Nothing at all coming from the computer.... Till it shuts off.
