  1. I work tech support in a medical diagnostics production lab. Our IT management software scans all devices on the network periodically to identify the make, model, OS, etc... Well, it seems to think that one of our HP printers is running Windows Server.... This type of thing is why I'm still skeptical about the upcoming Robot Uprising.

    Experiences with non-techies

    Recently, I've become an in-house tech at a medical diagnostics lab, and I seem to find myself quoting 'The IT Crowd' more often than not. I'm surrounded by Doctors with Ph.Ds and other degrees lightyears ahead of mine, yet they can't even figure out how to enable the preview window in Outlook!

    Yes. Win 7 does not have basic drivers that work with this card

    Wi-Fi Replacement Issues

    I've got a Latitude E5570 with a sketchy wireless card that needs to go. I fished out a Vostro 3558 and salvaged it's wireless for the Latitude. The card is installed correctly. However, when I try to install the drivers, the installation fails with the message "Installation Blocked" "This software package cannot be installed on your system" I'm positive I have the correct drivers but they still refuse to install. Any help would be appreciated
  7. My family used to do that. we've had tons of Nissans for a long time. I think it had something to do with that Nissan V6 Mercury had stuffed in their Villager minivans back in '97 (the Villagers were basically Nissan Quests). We bought one of those brand new and did nothing but general maintenance on it. Never broke down once. That van was also my first car btw. Hope you don't mind if I start hanging out here. Not around much, but I like to post when I can.

    Accessing my broken phone...

    OH SNAP!!! The screen came back on! Touch is still dead, but I think I might be able to use an OTG and plug in a mouse. Gonna run to Best Buy and see if they have one.

    Accessing my broken phone...

    Unfortunately, no. Not to say I didn't try tho. LG loves to lock their phones tight...

    Forgot to say, no SD card. Never had one in the phone
  11. I have a bit of a dilemma on my hands. Last night, the screen on my LG G4 went out. I've already gone out and gotten a new phone, but I still need the files on the G4. I've tried to plug it into my PC, and that didn't work. Some sort of security measure is not letting my computer see the files. Basically, i'm asking how I can get the files from my old phone onto my PC without using the screen.

    As far as I know, a Nvidia GPU must work instructions in chronological order. That's why they don't get nice performance gains on asynchronous compute APIs. AMD, on the other hand, can work each instruction in the order it is issued by, so it doesn't need to bench an instruction that was issued out of order. I think that's right... been a while since I've posted here

    Am i being Cheated ?

    Yes. It can still get power even if the board itself is ruined.

    Am i being Cheated ?

    I've actually had it where electricity killed my mobo, CPU, and a RAM stick but my PSU was fine. Granted, that was because EVGA power supplies are shite! EDIT: what exactly is the problem?

    Show off your latest purchase!

    Bought an Asus G75VW gaming laptop off some guy on Craigslist for $100. Screen is broken, but a replacement isn't actually too expensive.
