  1. Hi all, I been researching this project for a while and just cant get anywhere. I currently have a website hosted on my windows server box which has a couple HTML 5 videos on it. I was wondering if there was any way that I could sync playback controls to multiple users on the website. For instance when one person presses play, it plays for everyone else on the website at the exact same time. Do you guys have any idea on how I could get this to work? Thanks for help in advance. I'm looking for something similar to http://sync-video.com/ but with videos that I host and own instead of some YouTube video.

    Are you sure that is compatible with your laptop? Try using another HDD/SSD with windows on and see if you have the same issue. assuming that have rebooted the laptop after the drivers have installed. It may be a driver conflict, your laptop is still trying to use the drive from the last card instead of the new one perhaps, happen a lot in the early days of windows 7; Reinstalling windows would more then likely fix it, as long as you are ok to do it. Did you get the drivers through windows update,intel website or an included cd?

    I've reinstalled windows and the issue still persists. Every time I've tried to install drivers its been through windows and not actually downloading it from the manufactures website. When I first installed the card, I noticed that the previous card only had one antenna connection, and the new card had two. I am just wondering if that could have anything to do with it, because I only connected one of the antennas.

  3. Okay, so I got tired of the absolutely slow speed of the built in network card in my laptop and replaced it with an Intel 3160 Dual Band AC card. For some reason windows finds it, but I can't turn on the wireless and find a wireless network. Any ideas?

  4. To monitor on the pfsense router you'd have to use the built in tools, but there is a program called GlassWire that can be used to monitor your systems traffic. I would look into if there are any packages available within pfsense that can do what you're looking for.

  5. So I have some hot-swap sas drive bays. They're 2.5" inch. I bought 3.5" sas drives. Any idea on how to hook them up? There is extension cables, but they're ~$10 a piece, and I need six. I don't really feel like spending more on cables than the drives. Any other ideas?


    I tried taking the back plane out but the drives are still too close together...

  6. I setup an FTP server on my local network.

    My friends can connect with my external IP address, but I'm not able to connect with the external IP address or the local address of the server.

    The server is running on a different machine, so for instance the local address I am using isn't localhost, but

    Hey folks,


    I used to be a proud owner of Logitech G430 that I bought 3 years ago. Today, it has been murdered by a vacuum cleaner.


    Therefore, I need a new one but of course thanks to videos I also think that "gaming headsets" are just overpriced just like the music ones (Hey Beats)


    I would say that my budget is around 70-80 USD, can you guys suggest me a headset with a good microphone (online gaming ofc) and of course a good sound quality.

    I really like the Hyper X Cloud Headset. Everyone I talk to says the mic is great and the audio quality is similar to $100 headphones I own.

    Yeah, this might be a strange one... But what the heck, maybe someone might be able to help.


    I've built myself a small form factor PC:

    CPU: AMD Athlon 5350 Quad Core

    GPU: Integrated with CPU R3 Radeon

    MOBO: Asrock AM1B-ITX

    PSU: Zalman ZM400-LE

    SSD: AMD Radeon 120GB (it was on sale, and it had quite good review, don't judge me :D)

    HDD: 2x WD Red 3TB, 64MB cache, 7200rpm


    Case: Cooler Master Elite 130

    PC itself runs on Windows atm.


    The PC itself works great, it boots up really fast, it's really quiet and it makes almost no noise (with 2 case fans, 1 cpu fan and 1 psu fan spinning). Ideal for my home, where I do not have much space. Ok, I digress.


    What is the problem?

    I wanted to set this PC as a HTPC/storage server - so I could keep my media files on a separate PC and if I wanted to just watch something, I'd rather sit on the couch and turn the TV on. Also, it would be a great storage for my YouTube stuff aswell - to have a backup, just in case.

    At first, I wanted to just join my PCs to one homegroup and call it a day, but I started to wonder if a domain wouldn't be a better solution - especially when considering safety. 

    Right now, all my PCs are connected to a combo unit provided by my ISP and I also have a separate router (Linksys E1000) set up as a bridge for wireless connecting (for my PS3, PS Vita, phone and laptop). My question is - is it better for safety and overall accessibility to set up a domain controller on my small PC as well? And if yes, just how to do it? Will the router be useful in this solution at all?
    I've never set up a domain myself (I use it @ my work, though) but i know this - I don't want any files to be stored on a server regarding the account data - only logins and passwords. Is it managable? Does that make any sense?

    I find domain a little overkill for what I do, but after you have it set up its pretty easy to use. The problem is that you have to buy Windows server to host domain. The homegroup does the same job and easier (also cheaper)

    Hello everyone, first time builder here. These are my specs:



    Gigabyte B150M-HD3

    Palit Geforce GTX 1060 Dual fan

    1x8gb G-skill Aegis

    NZXT S340

    Cooler Master G550M

    1TB Western Digital Hard disk


    Initially, I booted it up without the graphic card installed, it POST-ed and displayed to monitor without a problem. After that, I installed the graphic card and it wouldn't POST. Instead, it turns on for more or less 10 seconds before shutting down and restarting. The motherboard lights up, PSU fan, case fans and heatsink turn on before shutting down and restarting. I have then unplugged the graphic card however the issue remains. Now, there is only the motherboard, CPU and PSU installed but the problem remains.


    I have also unplugged and reconnected the 24 and 8 pin connectors and reset the CMOS.


    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    I would say reset the cmos, but considering you've already done that I'd have to recommend trying to reinstall the CPU and trying the GPU in another computer.

    where is the vpn located? it might be throttling, but since you have no issues at other times, it sounds like the servers are just overloaded. the vpn would redirect you to somewhere else where the servers are probably under a lot less load

    Its in New York
