  1. Hey there, I think I have decided to come to Canada to study, really tired of my home. I'm interested in changing my career route to the Networking, so I'm looking at Network Technician programs across Canada, and weighing out my options. I've found lots of great options, but I am having trouble finding a Network Technician program which has a Co-op program to get some job experience firsthand during my studies. Does anyone have any suggestions for Colleges or personal experience relating to this situation? BTW I have Canadian citizenship, so there shouldn't be an eligibility problem with the co-op programs.
  2. Hey there, I'm currently weighing out some options for a new cellphone, and the ones that fall into my budget pretty well are the following: - LG Stylus 3 - Huawei P9 Lite - Moto E4 - Moto G5 - Moto G5 Plus - HTC Desire 10 - HTC A9S The main priority is performance and multitasking, and good picture quality. Honestly I know nothing about phones or the phone market.
  3. R9 290 not outputting display

    well ive seen both of those messages display on the same monitor so i assume they have different connotations im using Dual Link DVI, although I don't have any HDMI or DisplayPort cables on hand
  4. R9 290 not outputting display

    yes i have! i have made that mistake before if the drivers weren't installed wouldn't it read "No signal" instead of "No cable connected"? also i leave the tab open, it's fine
  5. Alright, so a friend of mine gave me his R9 290 since he upgraded to a 980ti a little while ago, and I have an interesting issue with it. When plugging it in it shows as "No cable connected" on my monitor, and I think I might know why, but I'm not sure. I've tried different 8-pin & 6-pin connectors from my power supply with no avail. I've made sure the card is nested nicely in the PCI express slot. I've tried flicking the little switch on it for the Legacy & UEFI bios settings with still no avail. What I think it is, is that my power supply doesn't have enough wattage on the main rail. I have the Corsair CX750, and it has 130W on its main rail, whereas on the minimum specs it lists minimum 150W on the main rail. When booting up, the fans spin on the GPU, so it's getting some power. Oh and also, my current GPU works perfectly fine in the same PCI slot, same cables, etc...
  6. Looking for a wireless usb adapter

    Here is a result from pinging google
  7. Hey there, I've recently moved to a new place, and I won't be able to run an ethernet cable up to where my computer is, and moving the router isn't an option unfortunately. There has been latency issues with my internet connection, but there hasn't been any issues for anyone else, so I have narrowed it down to my current adapter. I'm currently using a TP-LINK TL-WN822N, so it is obviously not the greatest adapter. My ping usually sits around 50ms, but frequently jumps up to ~300, and commonly jumps up to ~1500ms. And this happens for no one else. The router is running 2.4GHz @ 802.11b/g/n mixed & 20MHz bandwidth Would you think I should go for another adapter? Or is there something else I should try first?

  12. How Anita Sarkeesian Wants Video Games To Change

    Why are we giving attention to this sad excuse for an "activist". Her points are hypocritical, invalid, and often misandrist. She's like a rash, just leave it and it will go away.
  13. cops of LTT i need your help

    It might give you a bad image, and that is inevitable. They let far worse people become police officers in most places in the world, not sure what it is like in Australia though. Although, what you do in your personal time is YOUR business, and you could make the argument your attitude on the channel is for entertainment purposes only and it is separate.
  14. How big are you.

    191cm & 93kg pretty average here
  15. My PC gaming is dying.

    There's a big difference between a platform dying, and "not enjoying it". It is your own preference, you can like / dislike whatever you want, but that doesn't mean it is dying. Many people, such as the majority of us here, continue to enjoy the platform, along with many others, and it continues to grow. TL;DR you're wrong
