  1. Problem: When I turn my monitor off all of my open windows will rearrange/move into the top left corner of my screen. When I turn my monitor off I hear that "usb sound" that you hear when you plug in/ remove a device. Basically, I think that my computer is interpreting me turning my monitor off as me disconnecting it, and as a result is changing the screen resolution to some shitty default value which messes up anything I have open. I wasn't having this issue when I was using a 980TI with a 1440p monitor, but has started happening since upgrading to a 1080 and 4k TV (Samsung JU7500 48"). I'm not sure if it's a hardware issue with the TV, a driver issue, or an OS issue. I've rolled back/reinstalled graphics drivers, updated my monitor's firmware, tried editing various registry files relating to resolutions/monitors, but nothing seems to be working. I'm connected via HDMI (the TV doesn't offer other inputs). A friend of mine has the same card, TV, and driver version and it doesn't happen to him, he's running Win7 though and I'm on 10. Help would be appreciated.
  2. Started happening a few weeks ago and I don't know why. Sometimes it'll happen every few hours, other times every few days. I read that sometimes it's caused by outdated drivers for graphics cards or USB devices, although all of that is up to date as far as I know. Help would be greatly appreciated.

    PC/Console Graphics comparison

    Maybe not, but my point is still clear. It's alot easier for someone who games casually to plop down $250 on an Xbox and not have to worry about building a PC and dealing with the issues that may arise from one. Some people simply don't care about having the most amazing graphics/power and just want to game every now and then, in which case consoles do their job fine.

    PC/Console Graphics comparison

    I think everyone knows that PC's have better graphics and power. I think consoles are for the more casual player who just wants to kick back and game without blowing a grand on a PC.

    Star Wars Battlefront vs Fallout 4

    I was massive fans of BF 1 & 2, but the new one isn't anything like them really. Not a fan, as much as I want to be.

    Another ACER Predator X34 problem

    It's almost as if you're trying to make yourself feel better for passing on the x34 for the Asus version by almost obsessively bashing it at every opportunity. A few (or even a single person) reporting a defect with their unit does not translate to "there are MANY issues with the x34, don't buy it!!!". Chances are, the vast majority of x34 units are perfectly fine and work amazingly. With nearly every new product launch, there are small numbers of units with issues. This is not new or exclusive to Acer, and I'm sure the Asus version will have issues with a small amount of people too. This doesn't reflect the model as a whole. As these things are defects, the units with issues will either be fixed or replaced by Acer without issue. This has been said to you a million times yet you continue to post about it practically every day. You don't like Acer/the x34 for whatever reason, we get it.

    Need help with monitor decision

    Option 1: LG 34UC87-C PRICE: $680 (Normally ~750+) 34-Inch Ultrawide 1440p IPS 60Hz, No GSYNC Option 2: Acer Predator X34 PRICE: $1300 34-Inch Ultrawide 1440p IPS 100Hz, has GSYNC So basically, the only real difference between the two is the x34 having an extra 40Hz and GSYNC. Are 40 extra FPS and GSYNC really worth $600+? My rationale in buying the LG one would be that in a year or so the X34 will have dropped a decent amount, so I could buy one then. Or, is the X34 so good that I should just plop down $1300, despite the fact that it'll drop in price a decent amount in the next 6 months?

    Colored Lighting

    So I'm trying to find some good colored lighting for a room. Not LED strips but big lamps/lights to use on a switch. Suggestions are appreciated.

    Macbook 2015 "Butterfly" Keyswitch

    Just bring it in to Apple, they should fix it the same day if not they'd probably just replace it
  13. I'm talking about the image that shows up when you turn the computer on. Is there any way to change that or make it so it doesn't show up?

    I am starting a small business on craigslist.

    I think you'd have better luck on eBay, even with the added fees Good luck though

    Predator x34 vs. Asus ROG Swift pg279q

    It's not like those are permanent defects with the model itself, just some early shipments that had issues (and were RMA'd). This happens with every manufacturer to a certain degree, there will always be some defective units with any product launch. There are many people who have purchased it and have no issues at all, so I wouldn't judge the model in its entirety over issues that are likely small in percentage and will either be fixed through firmware updates or replaced by Acer.
