  1. Well I'm currently looking at laptops to buy for college and the XPS 15 has been a big contender on my list. Hearing about your fulfillment problem is not very encouraging

    How do you like the gaming chair?

    Laptop for Engineering Student?

    The screen started blacking out after about a month, would only work in one specific position and if you moved it just barely the screen went black again. Troubleshot it and went as far as taking it apart and making sure the display cable was properly connected to the mobo. Didn't really help. It was(I still have it, although never use it) a Asus N550J. I can agree with not rushing to get a laptop now, I have no need for one this summer, so at a minimum I can wait till the beginning of August. I don't really expect any new laptops to come out by then, but hey maybe they'll be a little cheaper then, plus no point in buying a laptop and just having it sit in my room till college starts. Interesting to know that the GTX lineup isn't good for CAD, I'll try to focus more on laptops with quadros and obviously more processing power.

    Laptop for Engineering Student?

    I did that a few years ago with what I considered a pretty nice ASUS laptop(spent about $800 on a refurb on Newegg) and majorly regret it. Might've just been my luck, but I'm definitely buying new this time.

    Laptop for Engineering Student?

    I just realized the laptops 40% off its starting price for small business month(I assume its only for small business month?) , so I would need to buy it this month if I want it

    Laptop for Engineering Student?

    Thanks. I think I should stick to pure engineering laptops, I intend to bring my desktop pc to my dorm so if I ever want/have time to do gaming I'll have it for that. I'm really liking the Precision 7520, although to get an SSD and upgrade to a quadro 2200 it would take me a bit over $1500, but I do have some wiggle room on the budget. Mechanical Engineering. Programs like Matlab, solidworks, autoCad, etc. Not 100% sure all be using all those in my classes, but I want to experiment on my own as well.
  8. Been awhile since I've been on this forum, anyways, I'm headed off to Engineering School in the fall, & looking to get a laptop sometime this summer before I head off. My budget is around $1500. I want to be able to do things like 3D modeling, maybe some video editing and light gaming, but mostly focused on Engineering type things, and in a thinner profile, as I will be carrying this around campus...Ideally would like to have 16gb of RAM along with an SSD(would be nice to have an SSD & HDD, but I can definitely deal with just an SSD). There's a LOT of laptop options out there, but I wanted to see if anyone could give me some suggestions to narrow it down some.

    Weird file taking up 430gb? (NSPSCR folder?)

    Is there any other way the program could I gotten on there? I will re confirm to make sure it's never been used for work, if it has, it would have been for nothing more then remoting into an office desktop, but I'm pretty sure it hasn't even been used for that. As far as the reinstall, that's a last resort.

    Weird file taking up 430gb? (NSPSCR folder?)

    Negative
  11. Okay so I just got onto my parents computer because they complained about it being slow. I checked how full the HDD is, it says they've used a good 650gb. Well, considering the only thing they do on there is web browsing, excel files and some photos, this didn't make any sense. So I downloaded a file scanner to see what was taking up all the data. Here's what it found Under program data, in the folder iecache, there is a folder called nspscr. It alone is taking up 433.4gb! Upon looking that folder up, it looks like it could be a program called "Net Spy Pro" as it creates folders with the above mentioned name within the program data folder. Any insight, whether confirming that is what it is, or how best to solve the issue, etc, would be appreciated.

    Google Pixel Back Order *RANT*

    I'm still on the line about whether to cancel. I just found out about this so I don't want to cancel and then regret it the next day since theres not really any other phones out I want that I've seen.
  14. So I ordered the Google Pixel at the beginning of December, they told me it was back ordered but I could order so I'd be in line for it to ship January 13th. I was pretty disappointed at having to wait another month with my old phone, but ordered it anyways. Well it was supposed to ship last Friday, called them up today to see what they'd say...they are now saying I won't get the phone till March 10th?!?!? What stupidity is this. I ordered the phone, knowing how many orders they had ahead of me, they told me it'd ship January 13th, possibly earlier. Now March 10th...either their shutting down the phone plant for 2 months, can't estimate worth a crap, or moved me behind a ton of holiday orders... You'd think for a phone that will cost me $950 they'd have some more sense then that.

    Can't delete partitions on old laptop drive?

    Alright, so long story short, after this huge waste of time, I have fixed the issue. For whatever reason, this hard drive that is completely new to this computer, was decided to have some tasks performed on it by my computer. So I took the HDD, plugged it into one of the external usb devices and connected it to my working laptop and edited the partitions in disk manager. Now it works. I'll never get those 3 hours back... P.S. Thank you to the people that suggested trying it on another computer.
