  1. Laptop CPU upgrade problem

    that higher clock speed chip could be exceeding the laptop's power budget ?
  2. Best laptop for 567$?

    ugh, u missed the joke dude
  3. Can Air Go Through Radiator?

    um, really ? the fans push the air though the radiator, i dont .... ?
  4. Best laptop for 567$?

    u for real ? You not realise how much better a rig you can get if you spend $568 ??
  5. CPU for Emulator

    I stand corrected. Ill try it on a 2nd gen i5 with a poo firepro card and see how it handles it and let you know results later
  6. CPU for Emulator

    its a nintendo DS emulator dude. an ARM will run that, its a GPU accelerated emulator by the looks of it.
  7. CPU for Emulator

    must be troll
  8. Elementary OS Installation fails with Fatal Error

    nope, changing partition map on a drive with windows on it, and have it still be bootable, is the holy grail, i dunno how to do it, but i think it can be done. That's why i suggested reinstall. its a bastard of a problem to get into, and usually requires starting again. If you are feeling brave though, look into zeroing the boot sector with gparted or something, and booting windows recovery, to use CMD and try rebuild a GPT on the now probably unbootable drive
  9. Elementary OS Installation fails with Fatal Error

    ok now you are before you were speaking in prior tense as if you were assuming that was the case. if elementary doesnt support legacy boot at all, then you can try using a 3rd party bootloader like clover or rEFIned and see if that will let elementary do its EFI grub stuff. If not, i would be a jackass about it and capture the windows installation with WDS, wipe the laptop, image windows back on in EFI mode, then install elementary too.
  10. Elementary OS Installation fails with Fatal Error

    enabling CSM should allow you to boot legacy OS and hardware even though BIOS mode is UEFI
  11. odd BD-R behaviour in Win 10

    Ive had this happen before if you set the hard disks to turn off after a time. I think it can kinda stop tracking everything on SATA when it does that.
  12. Elementary OS Installation fails with Fatal Error

    put the bios into UEFI mode with CSM enabled mate, its probably freaking out because of the GPT MBR mismatch
  13. if he's lucky, tried putting a decent card in a Lenovo OEM machine once only to realise the PSU has no PCIe connectors, and MOBO uses that nasty 14-pin ATX connector
  14. It wasn't until building an X299 platform in a 4U case recently that i realised just how bad this connector is. On a modern platform like X299, every single connector has been refined to the point where its a pleasure to plug things in, barring perhaps the USB internal header. But then you come to plug in the rackmount case fans, and are daisy chaining a mass of 100 year old connectors together, mashing each one so hard you think you are breaking it, and hurting your fingers to simply unnecessary levels. The technique for MOLEX seems to be wiggle it for an hour or so.... Can we stop using it please ?
  15. Windows deployment need not be boring This may not have been a good idea, some of them overheard others and set their language to Kurdish
