    Just gimme the light

    Thanks to Apple, many laptops I've seen have the same pinout for the LCD connector. (Troubleshooting macbook videos comes in handy here, Thanks Louis) Usually the outside pins are for Backlight LCD or backlight ground. Looks like this has the exact same layout.

    IIS timed out?

    Didn't realize this was a localhosting issue. My knowledge stops there so I'll pass on commenting to those with more experience. Don't want to share incorrect info.

    IIS timed out?

    So you're hosting a website locally that has a video on it, and if you try to play it from your local network it doesn't work, but if someone else plays it from outside your local network, it works? Why not just upload to Youtube and embed the video that way? hosting the actual video on the site takes up extra space on the device hosting the site and is more difficult to play back.

    IIS timed out?

    Can you visit any other websites? Sounds like a Firewall or Policy issue.

    Repairing shorted motherboard

    Without experience or a schematic, this is most likely a lost cause. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't throw a few hours at it if you want to try repairing it. Do you know how it failed? Do you have a multimeter? Soldering Iron? isopropyl alcohol? Hot air station? All of the tools would make your repair more likely to succeed, but the information is what's most important.

    The 5 Year Plan PC

    Motherboards usually die before the CPU does, so for a system that you want to last a while, get a quality board. Also, yes. The EPS connector is the 12v connector that is either a 4 pin or 8 pin (4 + 4) connector.
  7. That board requires a display passthrough card or a dGPU. No native video out on the board that I am aware of.

    Remapping CMD/CTRL

    I FORGOT ABOUT KEY TWEAK!!! @TLF Try this on windows first. This is a much better solution to this problem. I also wonder if Autohotkey would have a script for this.

    Remapping CMD/CTRL

    Honestly, I would look at getting a mechanical keyboard with some robust software set with it (Logitech, Corsair, even Razer) as you can remap keys in said software, I have an older Razer blackwidow Ulitmate that allows you to rebind keys entirely. I would look at rebinding modifier keys though before buying, some keyboards will let you, some won't. I currently use a driverless HyperX FPS pro keyboard so that one won't help you.

    They don't let you do self install. They require techs to come out for every install.

Best display in a desktop VR headset (Don't buy PiMax), best controllers on the market and above average tracking (Honestly think Oculus' Constellation tracking is still king for precision, that's up for debate though.) Total you should be looking at just under 3k for a Desktop PC and headset.
  12. Both are great, but for $4,000 USD, you can EASILY go much higher then this. I'll be back with links.

    ISP Charging Fee for Customer-Owned Equipment

    Oh for sure. The market of competition is why those prices are the way I listed them. If you do the math, Spectrum and Frontier are the same price with the same services, even though Spectrum is slower. I'm just giving an example of how this article doesn't tell the whole story.
  14. Half of them probably didn't know, they got auto updated to windows 10.
