  1. Random Question time:

    Is it weird that I prefer using My headphones only on one ear at random times? xD I kinda feel like I'm the only one and just wanna ask out loud lol

    My current headphones are hands down the best purchase as far as Audio but I can't/don't wanna go back to using In-Ears :|.

      I like to close out the world with my headphones so, I only use them on one ear if I'm talking to someone.

  2. Holy mother of different options for Super Mario Maker 2 after watching the Nintendo Direct VOD.... xDxD I kinda wanna try it lol

  3. Ok then Microsoft / Windows 10 o.O. Turns out My sticky notes are gone.... and I dunno how/where/why.

    I am very confused lol

      Windows ate your sticky notes.

      @CUDAcores89 Lol ya, pretty much :|.

      Kinda annoying really.

      Aaaand.... they are back 🤔. The heck xD.

  4. So.. it turns out that, the files (Mostly some spreadsheets/pdf's) what I've been looking for the past hour had been reallocated elsewhere a few weeks ago.. somehow and I don't remember moving them lol. That answers that! xD I should remake them really, original's are a bit messy.

     

    On a good note though, I think I've more or less survived the unquestionable cable management :D. Managed to get some colour coded ethernet cables (..instead of all white cables which made things really confusing), power plugs, no more extension cables and other minor things!

  5. Hey Mortis :),

    Is there some of technical-issue(s) with Floatplane and Bitwit on the forum currently? I can't seem to watch any videos It keeps saying "An unhandled error occurred while trying to get the video url - Code 0". It was working on Monday and was not working yesterday (Tuesday) either, unfortunately :|.

      Oh, interesting. I guess I'll just have to keep an eye out then lol :P

    Finally... I wake up to see this! A well thought out, well designed, well explained Monitor Buying Guide covering mostly everything✌️ 😍 I've seen some in the past but man, this is WAYYYYY better in My personal opinion. Trying to decide between two that I've seen that I might consider buying much later this year :/. Was thinking about selling My GPU but I'd rather not lol, I don't use it as much but at the same time I don't think it's 'worth the sacrifice', I think 100% I'll keep it from now on.

    1. TopHatProductions115

      TopHatProductions115

      Never sacrifice GPU for monitor. GPU comes first.

    2. Xiauj

      Xiauj

      @TopHatProductions115 Yeah that's more or less what I think everytime lol. It's just such a pain 'cos I want a new monitor but I know I would heavily regret selling My current ones lol. I doubt they would sell for that much either.

  7. Wow! That new PCPartPicker (PCPP) design looks pretty different when compared to before! I somewhat like it... :o

    Gotta try and get used to it now, lol

      it's easy, not that much changed

       

      at least on mobile

  8. Been seeing a ton of newly released small form factor cases (...and the normal atx factor too, lol) as of recently and it kinda makes Me feel like I want to swap cases as well 🤔. The only problem is that I have an ATX-Mobo and have never swapped a mobo before xD. I could do with the extra space on My desk sometimes lol. Also plan to tear down the setup and re-do the cables possibly in May or early June.

      Well, the 5.25" will probably be hard to find nowadays. What do you use it for?

      For the GPU, you'd probably be fine. My MSI 1070 QuickSilver is wider than most cards so the power cables do push against the glass but it fits.

    3. Xiauj

      Xiauj

      @Cyberspirit It's a very useful DVD+BluRay Player which I got about a month or two ago. Wanna try to free up some desk-space lol.

      GPU Length is 266.7mm, found the specs: https://www.evga.com/products/specs/gpu.aspx?pn=00933c14-2f72-4a87-afe1-8ed2116bdced

       

      A bit too long if I were to consider a smaller-case.

    4. Cyberspirit

      Cyberspirit

      @Xiauj For reference, my card's height is 140mm (from the motherboard to the case side panel) and, the length is 279 so, you'd be fine but, you know, there really isn't much space left for anything else in there.

       

      I have two fans under the GPU so, all I have remaining is a single 1x PCI-E port. If you need expansion cards then, full ATX is a better choice.

  9. Whilst on the topic of releases actually, I came across these release trailers for an upcoming film/instalment(?) in the Fast & Furious series.

    Spoiler

    Seeing as I'm a major fan, I really don't know how to feel about this either.. I'm very disappointed with any type of movie(s) and certain series nowadays. This to Me personally just looks like one massive joke :(. I seriously hope that FF9 is worth it.

     

     

    Oh and Happy Easter btw guys! :D❤️

      @handymanshandle Lmao.. I hope not >_>. But in all seriousness though, I legit hope that they don't destroy the series. It's been good so far and would be such a shame to see it take a major turn.

  10. So.. I've just come across an interesting post (https://www.overclock3d.net/news/software/gta_6_appears_in_the_resume_of_former_rockstar_artist/1).

     

    This post was written two days ago on OC3D and I just suddenly remembered whilst reading it that Grand Theft Auto V was released nearly 6 YEARS ago... and it is still fairly active; mostly for GTA-Online, I think. And not only that but, they also (..unexpectedly) split it between 5 platforms (Xbox-360/Xbox-One/PS3/PS4/PC), lol. An employee has hinted/leaked(?) Grand Theft Auto VI is "..is in development" which I'm finding hard to believe. I really don't know how to feel about this as a major GTA-Fan since VC/SA/etc.. had come out many years back. But overall, something doesn't sound right at all 🤔.

    1. Cyberspirit

      Cyberspirit

      I certainly wouldn't mind but, I kinda doubt it as well.

    2. Xiauj

      Xiauj

      Yeah I agree.

      I'm having serious doubts about it at the moment and given the fact that it been's nearly 6 years, that just makes Me even more concerned; especially as it's one of the most well known video-game-series that nearly everyone has played before xD.

       

      Other things as well like:

      > The amount of time it'll take Rockstar to produce>publish>finalize>etc..

      > The amount of posts/videos/forum-posts from YouTubers etc guessing what the story will be like etc..

      > .. and other stuff like that.

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    Indeed . Gonna have a look at some HDD-Options this week or probably next. I spoke to a couple of people and they think it sounds like its the HDD lol. Sooo yeah . Brand new 2.5"(?) HDD here I come, unfortunately....

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    So I'm currently trying to get My laptop to the desktop and I'm constantly getting stuck on a BSOD every time on start-up. The OS is Windows 8.1, restarting the laptop each time just takes Me to Windows' Automatic Repair screen which has "Restart" and "Advanced Options" listed. I have tried restarting many times, I have tried using some commands in the command-prompt window which I found on a forum-post via Google but some commands are being recognized and some are not which is a bit odd. I can't even restart the laptop via command prompt because it's unrecognized apparently!! The error code I'm constantly getting by the way is "0xc000021a". I'm at a loss here and I have no idea what to try doing next. Could anyone help Me out? Oh and btw, I'd rather not do any clean-installations what so ever as there is a lot of documents/pics/etc.. on My laptop currently. Thanks.

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    @LeapFrogMasterRace Update: Soo.. I think it might be the Laptop's HDD that is causing all of this stress on startup. I think it might be fried meaning I'll have to get a replacement. Just thought I'd post here just to keep it updated
  14. Good morning all! Update on the laptop:

    I have some upsetting news.

    Spoiler

    I think My laptop's hard-drive is (almost) dead :( Looks like I might have to order a replacement which is gonna be such a pain in the ass; then I gotta clone everything over and sort some system-related files.

     

    F   for My Laptop-HDD :(

      @MEC-777,

      Quote

      Laptops have used 2.5" drives for a very long time now.

      Really? Cool xD < -- Today I learned. Only reason I say this is because I very very rarely ever touch laptop hardware lol, desktop hardware I'm much more stable/familiar with ;).

       

      Quote

      What specific model is it (the laptop)?

      Dell Inspiron 5520

       

       

      Just been looking online and I dunno if an SSD will fit size wise and if it's the correct connector etc.. just found this video:

      Spoiler

       

      Are connectors for 2.5" HDDs and 2.5" SSDs the exact same? I can't remember lol, haven't really used any SSDs before.

    3. MEC-777

      MEC-777

      @Xiauj Yeah, that one definitely used a standard 2.5" HDD. 

       

      2.5" HDD's/SSD are all pretty much the same size standard. The connector is also standard. It will fit and plug in just fine. ;)

    4. Xiauj

      Xiauj

      Ah Ok cool, neat! :) To be fair, I might try and see if I can spot a 2.5" 1TB-SSD on PCPartPicker perhaps. Gonna do some research on which is good atm, I have no idea xD

  15. Looks like I'm gonna have to do more testing than expected :| Laptop still won't boot to the desktop for whatever reason.

    I'm hoping My laptop hasn't just died on Me completely.

      @Java Lol ya, ikr? xD I'm saving up for other things at the moment and I seriously can't be asked to buy a new laptop haha.

      I might buy a better-spec one this year or in 2020.

      Can you make a live Linux USB just to make sure it isn't just a windows issues?

      @Cyberspirit I probably could, I suppose, but I'll try a couple more things first :P I have a bad feeling currently :|.

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    Alright so, after looking at some suggestions on Google/Videos/Forum-Posts/etc., I typed "chkdsk c:/r" and it took an unexpected 2 hours lol, it's saying its scanned and has found no problems. I'm still not able to restart via command prompt so I typed "exit" and let it relax, then shut it down, pressed the button and am still getting the same BSOD/error-code when starting up. Any other suggestions? UPDATE <> READ THE NEXT COMMENT BELOW:

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    I did yeah, couldn't really tell what I was meant to be looking for when the command had finished was a bit confusing-looking.
  18. Xiauj

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    Nope. Still getting the same BSOD/Error-Code: "0xc000021a" and then it restarts itself to Windows' Automatic-Repair screen.
  19. Xiauj

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    I'll try Option-D ("Turn off your PC")
  20. Xiauj

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    That directs Me back to Windows' Automatic Repair screen with these options. A) "Continue" B) "Use a device" C) "Troubleshoot" D) "Turn off your PC" < direct shutdown I think it means, not as a restart, Idk.
  21. Xiauj

    Laptop boot-loop/issue

    Ok so, I just did "sfc /scannow" in command-prompt and it found some corrupt files and successfully repaired them and has more details in a "cbs . log" file and bla-bla-bla lol, should I press+hold the power button on My laptop to restart it though? Is it fully safe? Because I tried typing a few shutdown commands in command prompt before and it wasn't being recognized.
  22. My day is going so well...... (not)......................... I got woke up by My neighbours and now I'm having continuous start-up issues with My laptop, can't even get to the desktop :( *sigh*.

  23. Hey, quick question or two if that's alright? 😛 What's the exact model-number of that IPS Monitor on this comment? And does it have D-SUB + DVI-D + HDMI ..?

    Reason I ask is because I think.. You have the exact same as Me probably! xD I have 3 though lol, am planning to sell them soon-ish.

      Ah I see. Looks insanely similar to mine lol xD Gonna be selling mine (3x) and keeping My other 27"-Ones.

      oh yeah in the last like 2 days at this point, it's been a very good monitor.
      Nice color profile, like the freesync

      it's really nice to have a proper monitor in all honesty

      Yeah I fully agree :).

      My LG ones have been good so far too in terms of the overall quality. Shame I can't take advantage of FreeSync though :(.

  24. As of recently, I've been getting 100% random notifications saying "[USER] has posted a topic in [SUB-FORUM]: [TITLE]" in certain sub-forums that I don't follow (..and Yes, I have double-checked!) and am aware that some people have had this issue before, including Me and so I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen within the past month or two..? It's happened to Me at least 3(?) times within the past 7 days. One person has posted in the Air Cooling sub-forum and same for the Phones and Tablets sub-forum. Thanks -Xiauj
  25. Oh was it? Ahhhhhh... I see. That explains it then . I just assumed it hadn't been moved and it was a fresh topic primarily because no moderators had left a comment saying it's been moved. Is there a way to prevent this happening in the future? If not, that's ok .. am just curious. EDIT (7th April 2019): It's happened yet again! sigh EDIT (29th April 2019): It's happened yet again but in the CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory sub-forum.
