  1. Computer won't post when placed upright

    i would check whether the 780 is sagging excessively in the PCIe slot. Most PC's will boot loop if they detect incorrectly connected components, and given that a GPU is usually the heaviest thing in a system, and it only works laying down, it seems logical. I would try standing the PC upright, propping up the GPU with your finger to take the weight of it, and then try boot. Your PCIe slot might just be knackered. is the 780 a sagger ?
  2. 1x GTX 1060, 2x 144Hz screens

    uhhhh, who said the 1060 is a pretty good GPU ? Especially in the context of dual 144hz monitors. Obvious problem is obvious
  3. Quadro M1000M downclocks on battery power

    those switchable MxxxxM quadros in the 2016 Precisions, Z-books, and P50's are fucking garbage. Ive struggled with similar issues on my precisions for months, i stopped caring. I have the luxury of them not being my personal property though so i can get away with not caring, i imagine it is really annoying on your own laptop.......
  4. Windows 8.1 will only detect 41mb of my 16gb USB.

    by the way OP, i assume this happened after you burnt some isolinux distro using rufus or similar. When it gives you the option of whether to write as DD Mode or as ISO Mode, always pick ISO mode. ISO mode copies all the files from inside the image onto the stick preserving partition size and stuff DD mode burns the image bit-for-bit onto the stick, more like a clone, and then any remaining space after the image is left unallocated. Fun Fact
  5. Windows 8.1 will only detect 41mb of my 16gb USB.

    yeah totally, good shout. I just clear the partition tables manually for peace of mind
  6. Windows 8.1 will only detect 41mb of my 16gb USB.

    or this, this works too.
  7. Windows 8.1 will only detect 41mb of my 16gb USB.

    follow my instructions above, open a cmd and type diskpart then follow the other commands i posted one at a time, it will clear the partition table from the stick, and then remake a new one that spans the entire drive, which you can then assign a drive letter to in partition manager.
  8. Windows 8.1 will only detect 41mb of my 16gb USB.

    the fuck, no OP dont do this, doesnt fix the problem
  9. Windows 8.1 will only detect 41mb of my 16gb USB.

    yeah looks like its had something burnt to it in DD mode. diskpart list disk select disk x clean create partition primary exit format from partition manager
  10. Windows 10 won't boot on my new PC, help!

    worth a try, good idea
  11. fiber optic to bnc coax and rj45 converter ?

    so then you are breaking the law ? we just went full circle mate something doesnt become legal just because its very unlikely you will ever get caught hahahaha
  12. Windows 10 issue with sleep

    the fact you are running a factory OS might be the issue lol, im surprised you bought a laptop that nice and didnt instantly reinstall windows on it. But jokes aside, if this only happens when waking from sleep, just dont use sleep. go to power settings and set the close lid action to do nothing, it still turns the screen off, and if you were leaving it long enough to worry about the battery still dying, you should have just shut it down.
  13. Windows 10 won't boot on my new PC, help!

    if the monitor goes off after the bios comes up, it could very well be that the PC has indeed booted into windows, but is unable to initialise the graphics drivers for windows. unfortunately i dont think your system has integrated graphics so not sure what to suggest, any ideas @LinusTechTipsFanFromDarlo @Bo_jangles ?
  14. fiber optic to bnc coax and rj45 converter ?

    thats seems like a very fine line you are walking there, wonder what your cable company would say if you were getting free channels. Good luck with your endeavors though haha
  15. fiber optic to bnc coax and rj45 converter ?

    the thread is pretty quiet now, but the mods here are pretty efficient at removing any topics that discuss how to break the law. Cool idea though
