    Internet freezing on fresh Windows install

    That's the one that came with the laptop and I see no reason to upgrade it to W10 It's worked perfectly fine before the fresh installation of W8.1

    Internet freezing on fresh Windows install

    As in the HDD was completely wiped and I used installation media to install Windows 8.1. Apologies for confusion. The laptop is a Z500 Lenovo laptop. The Network adaptor, a Quallcom Atheros AR9485WB is up to date with the newest driver (or at least as Windows reports in the device manager) By internet I mean connection to the internet.. I don't know what else I can say here. It downloads like 70MB of Steam then freezes up, it fails to load Discord and internet pages don't open at all (just buffering until it says that it can't connect to the internet).
  5. Hey, I've completely reset my laptop so as if it's brand new but I've found that the internet on it is really intermirrent. It will proceed as usual and then the internet will freeze for a good 20/30 seconds before starting up again. I don't understand what could be causing this? Any ideas? For what it's worth: the network driver is up to date Troubleshooting problems just mentions something about "Windows not being able to detect the computers proxy settings"

    HyperX cloud 2 headphones jack issue?

    That's not it. It's fully in, i've tried it with my phone as well and it doesn't work properly with that either.
  7. Hey, So I was playing a youtube video with voices and they suddenly cut off: I however noticed that if I opened another tab and played music it would work. Now it seems the problem is to do with the jack as moving it around changes how the sound is being played: it may not play at all, it may be only in one ear or it may be very quiet. The slightest movement of the jack completely throws off the sound. Will I need to purchase new headphones? What can I do to fix this?
  8. Hey, A family member is looking to purchase a laptop for gaming with a max budget of £700. Portability isn't much of an issue but it will be moved to another place every week. Performance is all that really matters I believe. Cheers

    What VPN should I get?

    With increasing surveillance in the United Kingdom: I think I'd like to get behind a VPN right about now. What are some good VPNs?
  11. Hello! I'm looking for a budget phone under £100 that's good enough to perform tasks and browsing swimmingly. Battery length is important.

    Square artifacts in Discord

    Sorry, tagging just to mention this: I just had my display driver crash and restart. Could that have anything to do with this? It hasn't happened before.

    Square artifacts in Discord

    Got it. Zero memory errors. Do I have to leave the program open until I see another artifact?

    Unfortunately I don't have any spare GPUs lying around. ^^ I only bought the GPU a year and a half ago.
