  1. I'm not sure, but I don't wanna risk it for them, since they don't really have an option to buy something else in case the used item doesn't work.
  2. thanks for this! yeah I know it's not really an ideal budget, but the people who are gonna use it aren't really... how do I say this? they're not really computer savvy people, having an SSD would make barely any difference for them, and they're between low and middle class I have to say... so yeah, this really is the budget, and I really just wanna help them out
  3. so I know everyone here is very knowledgeable in what parts are good for high end gaming computers and stuff, but this time I need to know what's the best that I can get under a budget. the budget is 10,000 Philippine Pesos, which is around 220 USD details and what we need: 4GB RAM is good enough 500GB HDD is good enough small Chassis no immediate need for a graphics card because games to be played will only be children's games (maybe a processor with good enough built in graphics would suffice?) keyboard and mouse to be included in budget no need for monitor or speakers OS not included in budget so basically these are the minimum requirements, if you guys can come up with something that reaches the budget with better than 4GB of RAM or 500GB HDD etc. then of course it will be very much appreciated. they'll just use it for basic home office work (for the mother) and children's games (for the children) as always, if there's anything else that you guys wanna know to help with the decision then please just ask.

  5. So I haven't played SC2 in a while since I installed it (which was about a month or two ago). Last time I touched it, it was working fine. But now I'm getting this error whenever I try to play, I do as it says and restart but nothing really happens. I've also tried restarting my computer and as well as re-installing battle.net.
  6. when I check online, all I see is the Logitech G27 as the most recommended racing setup to use for PC. So I just wanna ask you guys what your recommendations are for racing setups, budget is around $500, although I'm not an avid gamer for racing games, I just like the feel of playing using racing wheels (my friend personally has the G27 so I already know how it feels, the wheel is just a little too small, but the rest is good I guess?) One thing I want to take into consideration as well is the compatibility with Windows 8 and with the games as well. Of course it would be a waste if some games won't work with whatever I decide to buy.
  7. never mind I "fixed" it myself, just used DS4Windows and it worked, guess it's the superior program
  8. I know my DS4 works with my PC because I've at least tested it with one other game, which is Street Fighter x Tekken. I use Input Mapper to make my DS4 work. But now when I try to play ACR, the option to use a gamepad doesn't even appear when I go to the options menu, all the options are just for different keyboard settings. And I don't know if this helps but my DS4 is emulating a 360 controller in Input Mapper. Also I'm not sure if I should post this here or in peripherals...
  9. it was actually by the picture options of the TV itself, changed it from 16:9 to just scan
  10. what does that mean? and how do I fix it? never mind, I googled overscan myself and I was able to fix it! thanks man! I got caught that I'm using a TV as a monitor haha
  11. the funny thing is that when I actually made a screenshot like how it should be done (print screen + paint), what I got was how the screen should really look. So instead I cut the screenshot to make you see how it looks like to me
  12. I don't see anything that says "dpi" there, and also nothing that says "view by small icons" I'm using windows 8.1 btw what I can see in display is the sizing of my icons is set on medium and my text size is set on 12. I personally made those settings and they worked fine before I launched the game. the game btw is the old Need for Speed Most Wanted.
  13. so yeah the title says it all, it's not a matter of one thing looks zoomed or it's just the text or something, rather EVERYTHING is zoomed, like I can't see the tabs on my browser and I can only see half of the icons in the toolbar. restarting the PC didn't do anything to help, neither did pressing ctrl 0 or ctrl - or ctrl scroll down one thing that seemed to fix it though was to change the resolution to something lower... but I don't want that of course, I don't want to waste my 1080p display... so anybody here have any fixes for this?
  14. I remember not too long ago, there was this nice guide here to setup something like Media Player Classic, but I think it's not exactly that. It included all the steps and codecs and stuff we'll need to download and fix. If anybody knows what I'm talking about can you link it to me please? or if not just send a link or tell me a good setup for these kinds of things, doesn't need to look fancy, just needs to be able to translate videos properly and of course cater to all kinds of files and subtitles and stuff...
  15. the ethernet looks good, its brand new and I don't have any other cable here isn't this just an issue of not installing something?
