  1. Wake on LAN is predominantly enterprise feature that works by broadcasting “magic packets” over a network. The target computer receives these packets and powers on. This is would allow you to boot your computer from your phone or another computer anywhere in your LAN quite easily. To be able to boot from outside of your LAN, you would need to port forward and likely setup a dynamic DNS.
  2. System 32 is where a lot of the pre installed tools are installed (like reg edit). You want to be able to navigate to these files outside of the cmd prompt. Additionally, people would complain if there was a storage black whole, which would be a likely affect of hiding system 32. There is also plenty of legitimate uses of that folder for fixing stuff in windows as well.
  3. You typically have to disable fast startup and hibernate in windows. Have you looked into wake on LAN?
  4. I wouldn’t worry it, you are still well within the safe temperature threshold.
  5. A general rule of thumb is to have more intakes than outputs (though just barely more). This is to create positive air preasure in the case (air preasure in the case is higher then outside of the case) which repels dust entering through unvilltered openings of the case. I don't know where your side fans are located, but perhaps move one of them to the front for intake. Bring air in through the bottom and front and out through the top and back.
  6. Make sure in the Radeon control panel under the switchable graphics tab you have saints row (or whatever other games) set to maximum quality. Restart the laptop.
  7. What kind of performance are you getting? you can try going into the AMD control panel and manually setting which GPU to use for any given application.
  8. It is mostly personal preference. I personally dont notice any jagged edges and i play with AA off. (I play on 1080p 144hz)
  9. What is the monitor/ how old is it? Your monitor may be dead/ dying and producing the green lines. You should also try reinstalling the GPU drivers. Uninstall using DDU and reinstall from Nvidia's website. If neither the monitor nor the drivers account for the issue, your motherboard is the most likely bet if the problems persist on integrated graphics.
  10. your CMOS battery may be dead, try replacing that. Also, not much point unplugging the PC from the wall everynight, when shutdown your PC will use a pretty negligible amount of power.
  11. No, that is a workstation grade GPU and it is not designed to run games (though it can, just not well). Your are better off investing in another GPU (something like the gtx 1060) and then you could use your quadro to encode stream with. What are the rest of your specs?
  12. Actually... I seemed to have fixed it. I simply uninstalled the monitor from device manager and rebooted and now it works... which is weird because i did that several times before posting this to no avail
  13. I clean installed windows yesterday, but i am having an issue getting my display (benq xl2720z) to correctly run at 144 hz. Previously, i went to nvidia control panel, set resolution, then the refresh rate dropdown would have an option for 144hz. It does not however. I then created a custom resolution, manually set the refresh rate to be 144hz, but the custom resolution doesnt apear to be saving. I am unable to select 144hz as an option from within games, so i assume that somehow the monitor isnt being recognized as 144hz. I manually installed the drivers from benqs website, and gpu drivers are up to date. Rest of my system specs are in my Sig. Thanks for any help!
  14. Not entirely sure what to title this, so pardon the vague title. Basically, i had an issue with my iphone where audio from headphones would be mixed with frequent static "pops", making it very annoying to listen to. The headphones worked fine on other devices. I assumed that the issue was most likely due to gunk buildup in the audio jack, so i decided to use a syringe to spray some Isopropyl alcohol inside of the jack (not my brightest idea). I did this, hoping that the jack would be mostly waterproof, but turns out that a decent amount of the alcohol penetrated into the phone. The original issue was resolved, but now the bottom quarter of my screen around the headphone jack is discolored due to alcohol being behind the screen. My question is this: should i take apart the phone and let it dry, or will it dry on its own? I would rather not take apart my phone if i can avoid it.
  15. Simply use a 4 pole 3.5mm to 3 pole 3.5mm adapter. Edit- there are tons of them, here's one that should work
  16. This sounds like a house wiring issue. While turning on a power heavy device can effect the power in the rest of the room (ie when I turn a powersaw on the lights dim briefly) it shouldn't effect a pc enough to cause it to crash.
  17. I'm not quite understanding what you are asking... you are comparing two different things. 2.4/5ghz refers to the wave frequency of the wifi waves. Power line Ethernet does not use wifi. Also, keep in mind that the speeds you are describing are theoretical. Actual speeds will be lower.
  18. Do people still use fraps? obs is better.
  19. Maybe. I through together a list of like 8 options that I thought of as well as what some people on this thread thought of, and I mentioned the idea of used. Sent him the list already though, so not sure what he'll get.
  20. He honestly didnt tell me much. I would assume 15", touch screen not necessary, lighter is better, minimalism design, temps shouldnt matter much, dell/ lenovo preferred, but open to anything, numpad would be preferable.
  21. My brother is looking for a laptop for school. He is an investment banking major, and frequently works with large Excel spreadsheets. He doesn't have a set budget, but keep the suggestions reasonable (750-1500 is probably best). Thanks!
  22. I would not use microfiber clothes, very static-y. I use anti esd brushes I bought a set of like 5 for 10$ on Amazon.
  23. Generally there's a jumper on the board that you need to jump to override the bios password, check the manual. Then it should just be a matter of flashing it to whatever is in dells website. That may not be a custom BIOS though, many BIOSes allow you to change the splash picture.
  24. There are tabs on either side of the ram, just pull the tabs and the ram stick should pop out. Just remove the screws to remove the hdd. The CPU will be solders to the board, probably on the other side.
  25. Batteries are very complex and die over time, there really isn't much you can do besides replace it.
