  1. Hey, I'm trying to salvage an XFX R9 280X, when I install the drivers it flashes once and then just shows an active black screen and the PC is unresponsive. When I restart, it loads up Windows and even shows me the boot logo but then returns to the acrive black screen. I have to go into safe mode and remove the drivers so Windows returns to the Basic Display Adaptor. I have moved the GPU to a different fully functional machine but the same error occurs. I have replaced the thermal paste, flashed the GPU BIOS, installed older versions of the drivers to unfortunately to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Ryan.
  2. Hey, I'm trying to find the right GPU upgrade for my system. It's a Mini-ITX system built into a Node 202 case. I upgraded my system just over a year ago to a Z370I Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard with an i7-8700K and I kept my EVGA GTX 970 from a few years prior. This card is now however quite outdated, although having my case is handy for easy mobility of the system it is making this upgrade semi-difficult. I was looking at the recent 5700 XT from AMD but I would preferably like one without the reference cooler, this £450-£500 area is roughly my budget. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Ryan
  3. Hey, I have used a for loop to create a series of buttons from a list. I plan to use 'index' passed through to 'printMap' to determine which button was pressed. However, whenever I load the webpage it runs the mousePressed function continuosly and I do not know why. Any help would be greatly appreciated and if you require any more infomration please do ask. Cheers, Ryan function createButtons() { startCo = y+110 mapPool.forEach( function(item, index) { //console.log(item, index); test = createButton(item); test.parent("main-container") test.style("height","35px"); test.position(x+(cnvWidth/2), startCo); test.center('horizontal'); test.mousePressed(printMap(index)); startCo += 50; }); } function printMap(index) { console.log("Click!"); //console.log(mapPool[index]); }
  4. My issue is with how to host two seperate pages, i.e. admin page on /admin and viewer page on /viewer using Node.js
  5. So I wish to make a basic application in which I have an 'admin' page where I can manually adjust some data values. Alongisde another page which is shown to the user that updates live to the changes made from the 'admin' page.
  6. Hey, I'm trying to use Node.js alongside express and socket to load two pages, one for settings/preferences and the other to display information/data that is responsive to the inputs from the first settings/preferences page. I have done some previous work with Node.js but for the life of me I can't seem to find a way to do this (usually I do everything through one page). I'm guessing this is because I'm approaching it incorrectly and would love for someone to inform how I should approach this properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Ryth
  7. Cheers, I'm already aware of these. Was looking for a solution for going straight into the printer preferences menu. Thank you though, Ryan
  8. Hey, I am doing some work for a less technically able client and going through Win10 menus to access printer preferences is hard for them to learn/remember. I was wondering if I could create a shortcut/script to open it upon a single click. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Ryan
  9. I'm running cabled to get the best performance. I have UK FTTC so about 30Mbps.
  10. In my current household live 5 occupants (including myself), with a vast amount of devices connected to the network via both cabled and wireless. Each occupant has a desktop computer (cabled), a laptop, smartphone, and tablet. Alongside multiple Smart TVs, NASs and a CCTV security system that syncs data to the cloud. Subsequently, this causes a substantial amount of traffic at any given time. My issue is that when I attempt to play an online game my ping fluctuates greatly making it almost unplayable, allowing me to only play when nobody else is there. I currently have a Netgear 24 port switch looking after cameras and desktops as well as a router with both 5GHz and 2.5GHz bands acting as an access point for the wireless connections (the fibre input line is badly positioned). We are also using the ISP issued router, which I'm thinking may be the source of the problem. I'm trying to find a way to improve my network so that I can play without issues whilst others can still continue to carry out their tasks with little to no notice of a change. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Ryan
  11. I've been looking at this C4 and it looks amazing and is basically exactly what I want. Any ideas whether it's even going to be made? Can only see posts from late 2017...
  12. Ah, I remember now. I've looked at this before but it's extortionate and out of stock. Does anyone know of any cases that are similar? I own the Node 202 but want something shorter and wider than will let me watercool.
  13. Edit: Dan 4. I've looked at this before but it's extortionate and out of stock. Does anyone know of any cases that are similar? I own the Node 202 but want something shorter and wider than will let me watercool. Can anyone tell me what the cases are here? Especially the one marked in red. Cheers
  14. Hey, I'm trying to host a database on my server and wish for a web interface to display the database as well as allow editing to the database. I also wish to be able to query the database through API requests. I've seen certain CMS's that allow for this sort of functionality but not for databases and I'm trying to refrain from writing the majority of the web interface myself. The end goal is to be able to edit the database through both the web interface and through an app using an API. Cheers, Ryan
