    Anyone download NoCD Cracks because they're lazy?

    I did with Mass Effect 2, but only because I had it installed on my PC but I lost the disc...

    Anyone ever thought of making a DIY tablet?

    Mouse Randomly Scrolls Backwards despite repairs

    You could replace the whole mouse, by buying a new one.

    Upgrading Siemens instabus eib

    You should contact your local HVAC / Controls parts distributor.
  5. Do people actually use eGPU's as like, their main setup? I can't seem to get this Aorus Gaming box to stay on/connected for more than like, 30mins...

    1. TopHatProductions115


      It works as an addon for laptops that don't have a decent GPU. Not main, but side computer...

    Older laptop CPU upgrade

    He does say BGA in his post but looking up the Dell Vostro 3560's motherboard shows an actual socket, so he may have just been mistaken.

    Older laptop CPU upgrade

    Looks like it was originally offered with up to a Core i7-3612QM, so that would probably be a safe bet to stay within power / thermal limits.

    NUC for home theatre

    Yeah I gotta second the Shield TV thing, I have one personally and it's actually pretty great, even streaming over the network with VLC works. And because it's Android TV apps natively recognize that they should run in 4K if available.
  9. Maybe I'm spoiled by the 8750H, but he 7500u feels incredibly underpowered... 90% CPU usage with Twitch open and Twitter...

      well it would be. it's 5 gens newer xD but it would explain bad multi tasking performance. 

    3. Silentprototipe


      If its dual core its outdated :/. At least in the mobile space xD

    4. imreloadin


      @firelighter487 You forgot the fact that you're comparing a 15 watt CPU to a 45 watt CPU. That and the fact that it has half the cores/threads that the i7-2675QM has...

  10. $400 Blade Stealth is real! Checked it all out, no scratches, no screen problems, original charger, and a very pleasant interaction! Must be my lucky day?

    1. TopHatProductions115


      Checked for power on, right?

    2. Theguywhobea


      Yup, posting from it right now. Even checked battery wear level before I gave the guy the cash, everything seems to check out. I think in this case I just got lucky and found a guy looking to make a quick sale and I was able to show up same day with cash.

  11. $400 Blade update. Messaged the person again, trying to setup a meeting time/place. They have agreed to a public meeting place... Maybe just someone looking for a quick sale?

      I'm meeting this person in a mall, so I'll be pretty far from alone.

      Take a family member or friend with you, for safety

  12. 2017 Blade Stealth for $400? Good deal or nah?

    1. DrMacintosh


      Sounds like a scam tbh

    2. dizmo


      Must be broken. Or stolen.

    3. Theguywhobea


      Yeah I was a little worried when they told me to meet them at their address...

    Help with port forwarding

    OpenVPN slow transfer speeds from mapped network drive.

    I noticed on my 4core arm board that I have running openVPN that it only uses 1 cpu core. It's possible that you are having the same issue. If you're forcing all traffic through the VPN it's trying to encrypt and send all that data using 1 cpu core, which could explain the slow down.

    My acer laptop is dead. What can i do?

    Does it turn on at all? You could always reinstall Windows...
  16. Theguywhobea

    How should I turn off my pc

    You can just shut it down, you don't need to switch the PSU off and turn off the outlet.
  17. Theguywhobea

    Cannot close my case because of my GPU !!!!

    Check out EVGA's powerlink, that might work for you.

    HP Laptop Overheat while sleep

    Lol, that might even be a little low for Chrome

    HP Laptop Overheat while sleep

    Yeah I used to notice this a lot (especially when I was in school and carried a laptop around more often) that sometimes leaving programs open especially browsers can pull your machine out of sleep or prevent it from going to sleep. Also if you have your laptop set to "Do nothing" on lid close while plugged in you might sometimes close the lid while it's still plugged in and then remove the power cable, in that case it will not be asleep as your laptop doesn't check to see if the lid is closed, it just checks the initial lid close action.

    Linus' infactuation with AW upgradeability

    I think the desktop CPU think is the only TRULY new thing to Alienware. I have a 2014 Alienware 18 that has a socketed (although mobile) CPU, and two MXM card slots. Previous generations of 18 and 17in Alienware notebooks were similar as well.

    File Transfers over web.

    You could use an extra machine as an FTP server, then port forward through your router. Probably not the most secure way to do it, but it's the cheapest since you're paying for the hardware (or ideally you already have the hardware)

    Asus Rog G771JW

    Asus should have a copy on their site, I'd start with that, then it should update itself once it's installed if it's an old version.

    Asus Rog G771JW

    Well I think he could have in issue with his iGPU drivers based of his dxDiag where it states there is a problem with his intel hd 4600
