  1. if you are out on the beach what do you need to remote access your computer for at this very moment?
  2. how many PCIe lanes does this transmit ? if it's only 1 lane i'd look for a different adapter ... something like this one: that way you can use the maximum amount of lanes the m.2 in your acer box provides - and since you want to build a custom case any way you might be able to mount the graphics card right in that slot without a riser cable
  3. this does not work for me because the reciever can't recieve audio over HDMI. i also want everything to go to the TV first so i can switch inputs on the TV. i guess it might be easier to replace the reciever with something newer that is HDMI ARC capable and can decode 7.1 PCM and other HD audio.
  4. buttons 4 and 5 usually go forward & back (like the two arrow buttons) in web and file browsers - does that work ?
  5. a prebuilt might be a good start for people who know how to upgrade further - but i hate how everyone else just gets screwed over. specific example: a friend bought herself a new laptop because everything took forever on her old single core laptop. she does not game or do demanding stuff - all she needs is a "typewriter with a webbrowser" so she got a new laptop - not a bad machine overall for what she does ... a nice bright and big 17" screen, 4-8 gb of ram and a celeron N3060. it should run circles around her old pentium M based laptop - right? WRONG. in its current state that thing is just as bad as her old one because they put the slowest 2.5" HDD in there one can possibly have. everything still takes forever on this thing and it feels like a total piece of shit. she does not know how to swap a drive or anything so she would have payed all that money to be stuck with a brand new laptop that works exactly as slow and shitty as her old one already did. nothing improved.
  6. a slow card won't benefit from a lot of vram because you also need the horsepower to fill this vram with high resolution data fast enough.
  7. sadly, you are right. i forgot about off-the-shelf computers and what a ripoff they are. they put the crappiest PSUs and slowest HDDs in there they could possibly find so they can write big numbers on the box and still save a ton. and to make them feel even slower and crappier they put all the autostart bloatware on it that exists. this needs to change IMO.
  8. yeah ... some programs show an almost malware-like behavior: when you disable their autostart entry, they just create a new one next time you restart windows. you disable that entry too - they create another one. you play this game for a while until you have like 4-5 entries of the same item and just give up, grind your teeth and let the program have its way or decide you don't really need this piece of shit software and uninstall it for good. if you are tight on RAM but can't upgrade then i'd really recommend asking yourself if you absolutely NEED this or that ressource hogging program installed at all or if there are alternatives that do the same thing but don't give you that much trouble.
  9. if you don't have a graphics card with extra power connectors, this should be ok 24 pin ATX power 4 or 8 pin CPU power CPU fan case power button (you can also short these two pins with a metal object if you don't have a case at hand)
  10. it says (OEM partition) so it makes me think that you were not supposed to see this partition in file explorer to begin with but it somehow got "unhidden" you can hide it again by removing the assigned drive letter
  11. double the memory CHANNEL for performance reasons ? or do you just want to double the memory SLOTS so you can throw in 2 sticks now and another 2 sticks later?
  12. this sounds completely backwards to me - preloading applications so they take less time to be on screen and operational made sense back when slow HDDs was all we had... ... but with all the blazing fast low latency SSDs and optane and whatnot becomming ever more mainstream and affordable it would be logical to make LESS use of the autostart feature because applications can start up and be fully operational in the blink of an eye anyways, yet it seems that autostart is used even more than ever before. seeing how a lot of applications are "preloaded" for no obvious reason makes me nervous TBH. if applications and all the other crapthings are sitting there, being active to the point where it can be spottet just by looking at task manager - but also show no other sign of activity and appear to "do nothing" but silently sit in the system tray without interacting with anything on the front end - i really wonder what they do on the back end and out of the users direct line of sight. that xx% CPU usage must be caused by something - right?
  13. i'm still quite happy with youtubes own music library and use it a lot but thanks for the links everyone
  14. did not know that - thanks - this makes things a lot easier. then just connect the capture card to a HDMI out on your graphics card and connect the monitor to another HDMI, display port or whatever else your monitor has.
  15. this could turn into an issue because no matter if you do the cloning via a spare HDMI port on the GPU or a HDMI splitter - the resolution the clone port sends out will be identical to what the monitor will get - so if you want to drive a 1440p monitor at native resolution there is a good chance your capture card does not even know what to do with a 1440p signal
