  1. It could be a hardware issue with your board, my last laptop had an issue like that that started happening of course right outside the warrenty period so I couldn't RMA it, but you may need a new board, find a cheap USB to audio jack adaptor and see if that fixes the issue
  2. I would stick in a proper pcie wifi card, usb wifi cards are pretty terrible compared to pcie ones, I had this one (http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GC-WB867D-I-Bluetooth-Adapter-Computer/dp/B00HF8K0O6/ref=sr_1_9?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1465191814&sr=1-9&keywords=wifi+card) in my computer and it was pretty good. If you want to let him use your internet, you are probably going to need something like this and that is if you have a line of sight between your two places. If he would use an open network, I would suggest buying a vpn and running all of his traffic through that, (I use private internet access and I really like it.)
  3. my wifi is kind of weird in my house, I can in one place of the house, get 18 mbps down on wifi (on our 15/1 plan), I move 3 feet further from the router, and suddenly I only get 3 mbps down and youtube wont even play without buffering. if I had powerline in that part of the house, I would be totally fine, but I don't
  4. my first thing whenever someone is having an issue with android is to try to reset the cache (I'm not talking about the cache in storage settings, but the cache that you delete through the bootloader) often you may just have something that is corrupted in the OS and resetting the cache fixes that issue.
  5. Assuming you are US, here is my build, assuming you are comfortable doing a bit of overclocking, an FX-6300 can be fine for gaming and editng http://pcpartpicker.com/p/d3zxFd PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/d3zxFd Price breakdown by merchant: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/d3zxFd/by_merchant/ CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($94.99 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($24.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: MSI 970 GAMING ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($82.98 @ Newegg) Memory: Mushkin ECO2 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($48.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Sandisk SSD PLUS 480GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($93.79 @ Amazon) Video Card: PowerColor Radeon R9 380 4GB PCS+ Video Card ($173.98 @ Newegg) Case: NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($36.99 @ SuperBiiz) Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($70.98 @ Newegg) Total: $627.59 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2016-06-01 01:53 EDT-0400
  6. I'm looking to buy a new laptop for college to replace my 5 year old sandy bridge i3 based machine, I'm looking at this laptop at costco. I honestly don't do a ton of gaming, but I want a machine that is semi-capable of doing some content creation which this one appears to be, Core i7 6700hq, 12 gb of ram, IPS touchscreen, gtx 950m, ac wifi and bluetooth, and 1 tb hdd (I would replace that with an 240 gb adata sp550 that I have laying around. and a bang and olufsen speaker system. With tax this laptop is about $760 USD. are there any other good value laptops that meet my criteria (I want it to have a touchscreen). Or if there are any that have 960m that would be even better. I want just a 1080 screen though.
  7. Size on the 1080, nope, but I would assume probably close to the same size as most other reference nvidia cards. the price was $600 for the plain reference card, and $700 on the founders edition card, (not totally sure what the difference is other than a bit of extra angles on the cooler).
  8. how do you know that your chip is stable at that voltage? have you tested it? I remember something about Paul from Pauls Hardware. 5960x was running at like 1.2 volts for 4.7 ghz, but Jay from JayzTwoCents has to run his 5960x at like 1.325 volts. It all totally depends on your chip. I had a crappy fx-6300 that only OC'd to 4.2 on 1.4 volts, which was higher voltage than I wanted to push it, I would see how low you can get the voltage while keeping the computer stable before deciding on what voltage you will run your CPU at.
  9. http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/H170M%20Pro4/ according to this, yes you can. as long as you have 1 USB 3 header on your mobo, you can usually run 2 front USB 3 ports from it.
  10. pcie 3.0 4x, is fine for a eGPU, According to AMD, you can run crossfire just fine on pcie 2.0 8x per card, which is the exact same and pcie 3.0 4x, but your still talking close to 8 times usb 3's bandwidth for thunderbolt 3, so I honestly don't see the point of doing an eGPU over usb 3.
  11. Asus has a couple decent ones in the price range, xps is quite a bit more expensive, and they don't often have a dedicated GPU, haven't checked out MSI yet though.
  12. Honestly, my current laptop is 17.3 inch 7 pound sandy bridge Gateway laptop, I considered that relatively portable, so in all honesty, anything smaller is definitely going to be more portable. And I like the large screen, I would rather have a better laptop if it's slightly larger and more heavy as opposed to an ultrabook.
  13. I know this probably isn't the correct sub for this topic, but it made the most sense to me, I'm going to be in college next fall, and I really need a new laptop, my current laptop is old and decrepit, I would like it to be able to do some light content creation (and maybe some gaming) if possible and 3d modeling if needed. I also don't have a ton of money (under $1000), which I know is kind of a conundrum that is kind of hard to address, and to me the main laptop that I keep coming back to is the dell inspiron 15 7559 non touch model with a 6700hq, it has a relatively decent screen, decent discrete graphics, and I could stick a second ram stick in for 16 gb of ram. http://www.dell.com/us/p/inspiron-15-7559-laptop/pd?3x_nav=PROC_BRAND%3DCORE_I7_6&3x_page=1&filterCollapsed=true I what are your guy's opinions, I would probably end up sticking in a m.2 ssd as well as the ram for a laptop. Are there any other decent laptops with those specs in that price range?
  14. so, confirmed what everyone already knew, just buy the 2 dollar monoprice cables and we will all be good!
