  • Biography
    Started with computers at the age of 6. An Atari 800XL with tapedeck. Then a C128, Amiga 500, Amiga 1200 (which I still own and care for, moved from the keyboard to a tower, 2 CPUs 1 FPU, 1 MMU, FastSCSI II, 2 CD Drives, 3 Harddrives, 10 megs ram). Then later switched to PC and windows/linux. Build my own firewall/router on linux and used it until it hardware died. Found a wife that was handy with computers as well, and who joined me in my online gaming hobby. We both were an awesome duo, but then 15. April of 2016 she died of a heart attack. Now I'm a solo camper again missing her very much. Else I still like to create computer builds for me/her, friends regarding budget and what it's used for to get most bang for the buck invested. Most times the systems I configure outperform more expensive ones. I like to use midrange hardware like GTX X60 versions, and on the intel side the I5, and then mostly using things, one generation old. Why that you may ask, if there isn't a change in the cpu socket type in the next one or two generations, you can easily upgrade. And to be honest, from the I5 3570k to the new I5 6600k the performance gain is measurable, but do you really feel it in the daily use?

    So that's for now =)

  1. Have u seen ghost?

    you "old" ones sound like grandpas with "I'm old *cough cough* help me to my keyboard please" =) so what digit is the first of the years? I got a 4 in front =)
  2. USB 3 Stick running at USB 2 speeds

    I'm sorry to tell you this, but those sticks are only that fast... Got several "USB 3 Sticks" here that won't go above 12 mb/sec writing. In reading they are a lot faster. It isn't your USB that is wrong but the cheap controllers on those sticks. Why else do you think those 16 gb sticks only cost a few bucks. As soon as you get a really fast USB Stick you are usually up for 100+ bucks...
  3. Freeze, Black Screen and Audio Loop

    first, reinstall the nvidia driver that is currently installed. If this doesn't help remove the current installed one and get an older one.
  4. Internet not working :(

    My main machine got wonky after a windows update in hand with a NVIDIA driver update... the system froze every now and then, while gaming, while surfing, while idling... After a few freezes I only had the option to set it back... then I found out that the newest nvidia driver was the culprit... after reverting to an older version, the system was stable again.
  5. Internet not working :(

    Sheesh... sounds like there really is something wonky with the windows installation...
  6. Internet not working :(

    with this kind of errors, sometimes I wish I was a blacksmith... There is a YT channel Alec Steele... he always says... as a blacksmith, if you got a problem... hit it with a hammer... if you have more or bigger problems, hit it with more hammers

    Now the realtek one is still acting up... This one could help: http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=7&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false
  8. Internet not working :(

    I have another one dear Sir =) https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27309/Intel-PROSet-Wireless-Software-and-Drivers-for-Windows-10?v=t
  9. Internet not working :(

    https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27391/Intel-Wireless-Bluetooth-for-Windows-10?product=75442 this should directly link to the driver
  10. Internet not working :(

    Is that the driver installer or driver helper?
  11. Internet not working :(

    Are you able to swap out the wifi module? I know on some machines they are just plugged in and can be swapped out.
  12. Internet not working :(

    You should see my old travelmate... it got windows 10 running, but until the pcmcia isn't deactivated in the device manager, half of the laptop isn't working. Anniversary update went fine, creators won't install... 70% bluescreen and back to Anniversary... next update run it tries again... Then when using the Wifi a little more, putting strain on it, the machine usually bluscreens as well. Thinking about to roll it back to windows 7.
  13. This won't really help, until we all rethink how to use our resources, stopping the excessive consumerism type, the corporate thinking of ever growing profits...
  14. Internet not working :(

    did you run a "sfc /scannow" already?
  15. As long as the world goes on like it is now, there will surely be an end not so far away for humans. If humanity rethinks what is important, and we move on to a kind of ideology gene roddenberry came up for with star trek, we learn to use our resources wisely, needing no money, being able to do what you feel destined to... then there might be a bright future ahead.
