Re: TV Tuner cards for PCs?

I am going out on a limb here because I have not had a tv tuner card in a long time but most all of them are just a tuner so they are all about the same other than recording options like how many shows at once, etc. Used to have multiple cards in a computer to record more than one show! I would reco...

Re: Lighting project!

Nice. Are they just on the rain gutters? I wanted to do something like that in our sunroom with using clear PVC pipe for curtain rods but the heat would not be good in the enclosed area of the pipe :shock:

That could be. The IP listed in the forum is not banned though. A LOT of VPN's are probably banned cause they are just spam heaven.

Re: Banned Permanently?!

I checked to make sure but you are not in the ban list. Let me ban you for 30 minutes and see if after it releases you if it kicks something in the nuts and works right again. Maybe a flag is set somewhere that after auto unbanning you it will reset....

Re: Upgrading HP17 series laptop

just a side not that if you do clone the 750gb hdd to the 1tb ssd you will have 250gb or so unallocated space that will have to become a separate 250gb drive :) Most clone programs should be able to let you resize the main partition if needed. I know I did it with all my clones from small drives an...

Re: MicroSD cards for phones

Sandisk. I have used Sandisk in everything and have had the least problems with them compared to any other brand I tried (or even a non-brand cheapo thing). Good prices when they are on sale! - https://www.bestbuy.com/site/camera-memory-cards-usb-drives/micro-sd-sdhc-sdxc/pcmcat748300453560.c?id=pcm...

That is great news! (HAH Futurama flashback)

Does the i7 have a motherboard that will fit that laptop? Have to make sure all the parts and pieces line up.

Hmmm, maybe Nate will know. Have you tried clearing your cookies and temp files already? If not, try that and see if it helps.

Re: Upgrading HP17 series laptop

A lot of those older laptops were bios locked to a certain type of WiFi cards. I have a few Lenovo's that I have to run a mini USB dongle for their WiFi That Plus 5ghz doesnt have a huge range so will it even work for her in classes? 2.4ghz works a lot better at long ranges and N does 450mbps (max)...

Stadia - thoughts?

So Google announced Stadia, its cloud gaming platform.....so what are your thoughts? I think it will fail UNLESS 5g is brought out nationwide (quickly) because there are a lot of people in the USA that do not have access to super high speed internet unless you are willing to pay $200 a month or so. ...

Re: Why is memset slow?

Sorry I can not be of great help. You are leagues above me! Maybe look at your motherboard and any limitations it has in regards to slowing down the memory process going to and from the cpu...? It should not be slowing it down that much I wouldn't think.... DAMMIT - https://stackoverflow.com/questio...

Re: New system

Sorry, been busy with the estate stuff.

Working great except the lights. Installed the updated Fusion program and now no lights come on. I am going to uninstall it and try setting a color in bios again to see if it fixes it but no shut offs or anything crazy going on but that.

ASSucks is refusing the repair/replacement of my gpu as the fire damage is bad enough that they cannot tell if mobo or gpu was the cause. I will fight this until I get a replacement/refund from Asrock as this is bad customer service in my book
