  1. I wish they'll discuss this topic on the WAN show and maybe do a strawpoll to see what most viewers actually think.
  2. Hi, i recently found this big flowchart for troubleshooting pc problems. Might be helpful for some of you edit: you might have to click "full resolution" to be able to read anything
  3. Hi LTT community, recently task scheduler stopped working. At least I can't open it anymore. Following message appears (see picture 1) "task scheduler is not available task scheduler will attempt to reconnect to it". clicking "OK" does nothing (message appears again). I can open the task scheduler library through "computer management" (picture 2) but once i click on "task scheduler" the same message pops up again. The service is started under "services.msc" (picture 3). I noticed this because Shadowplay, MSI Afterburner and SpeedFan (which I recently switched to from AI Suite) don't open on startup. I couldn't find any solution or many people with the same problem. What could have caused this and do you have any idea how to fix this? p.s. It's not a terrible problem but I need to start all programs manually after startup which is kinda annoying Thanks in advance for your help!
  4. apart from Dota2 (which shows no problems) no other games tested.
  5. No, it was a german server (we live in germany) and the server browser showed 25ms ping for this on (so pretty good). The problem was the same on different servers though. It does not happen in Dota2. I do not like wifi, too. But that can't be the reason, because at my parents place they have a similar connection with wifi (10Mbit/s) and Battlefield works without a hitch there. I'll try an ethernet cable but I don't think thats the cause. A consistent low ping is important for a game like Battlefield. Of course more Mbit/s are better but 10-15 should be enough. Thanks for all your replies !
  6. d'uh obviously. The question is why it is increasing once the game is running. It's unplayable although his connection is good enough otherwise.
  7. Hello, I wanted to play some Battlefield 3 with my brother but he had some serious problems! He couldn't move at all (called "rubberbanding"?). His system: AMD Athlon X4 760K, GTX 750 Ti, 8GB DDR3, 256GB SSD, Win 10 64bit, Wifi connection, Internet "good enough" around 12Mbit/s. When trying to play Battlefield 3 online his ping gets very (unplayably) high. It jumpes from 30ms to 500-900ms and "rubberbanding" happens. When pinging "www.google.com" in cmd constantly ("ping -t www.google.com") it always shows around 30ms but also jumps very high once he's in game. Also Skype calls break down once in game. What could cause this? The connection is OK (ping to router 1ms, to websites 30ms and good enough bandwidth), but once he's in the game it gets so bad he cant play (literally cant move) and everything internet-related has connection problems. CPU usage is around 90% but it doesn't seem to be a rendering problem since the fps are good. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys!
  8. Ok. Well if you still have warranty I'd contact the support and tell them about the crashes (and that you didn't overclock). If it crashes in different applications the graphics card might be defective somehow. Still it could be something else but I have no clue.. Good luck!
  9. If it only occurs in BF4 and no other game (also try a few stress tests like unigine valley/heaven and furmark and report the temperatures, voltages etc.) it's probably a software problem and has nothing to do with your graphics card. You said you tried re-installing drivers.. other than re-installing BF4 I have no idea right now unfortunately.. Edit: The maximum temperature of the gtx 970 is 98°C as stated by nVidia: http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-970/specifications so you're definitely fine. Which particular model (manufacturer) do you have? Also what are the other hardware components of your system? If you're not sure you can download a tool like "hwinfo". It might be that your Power Supply causes the crash. But i fell like then it should also happen in synthetic benchmarks /stress tests. Because a program like furmark is much more demanding for a gpu than a typical pc game.
  10. allright. So I'll wipe the drive with DBAN, then re-install Windows and shut the system down once it asks to insert the name? Thats easier than I thought Thanks!
  11. Hi guys, i found someone who wants to buy my notebook. Of course I cant give it to him the way it is right now. I need to erase my private data and the Windows 10 license (the laptop came with Windows 10 Home installed) has to go into his ownership. I saw that Windows 10 has a built in reset option ( Start>Settings>Update&Security>Recovery) that deletes all files. -> But what about the user name? Wouldn't I actually have to re-install Windows and then enter his Name so that his Username folder gets created? When I first got the laptop and started it for the first time, Windows was installed but I had to enter my Name etc and this stuff got created. Is there a way to do this again? Does anyone have experience with selling laptops (and Windows included) and can give me some advise? If there is a better sub-forum for this question please tell me / move this thread. Thanks in advance!
  12. Thanks a lot for the help! (Yeah i forgot the hdd).
  13. Allright. Thanks for the helpful input!
  14. Hi guys, my brother needs a new pc (currently gaming on an old laptop) for mainly Dota2. Budget is around 350€ (384USD) preferably lower. This was my first idea, do you have any suggestions or advice? I'd say it's enough performance. Anything wrong with my selection? I just want to check with you guys... 1 x AMD Athlon X4 860K Black Edition, 4x 3.70GHz, boxed (AD860KXBJABOX) 1 x Kingston HyperX FURY schwarz DIMM 4GB, DDR3-1866, CL10 (HX318C10FB/4) 1 x Zotac GeForce GTX 750 Ti, 2GB GDDR5, 2x DVI, Mini HDMI (ZT-70601-10M) 1 x Gigabyte GA-F2A78M-HD2 1 x LG Electronics GH24NSC0 schwarz, SATA, bulk (GH24NSC0.AUAA10B) 1 x BitFenix Nova schwarz (BFX-NOV-100-KKWSK-RP) 1 x be quiet! System Power 7 350W ATX 2.31 (BN141) thats around 330€ Link to (german) price comparison site: http://geizhals.de/eu/?cat=WL-622220&wlkey=096240a4f226aaf32405137eb70478f2 He might want to record gameplay.. is this possible with this configuration? I think the gpu does support "shadowplay"... Location: Germany No peripherals needed. Any advice/comment much appreciated (edit) is it worth going for used hardware on ebay?
  15. Maybe there is still hope... try a different connector at the back. For example if you were using DVI, try HDMI oder DisplayPort.
