  1. Locked out of my iPhone.

    Hmm, I may give that a go. Thank you all for your help!
  2. Locked out of my iPhone.

    How do you mean? I'm quite interested in that method.
  3. Locked out of my iPhone.

    I don't know, I'll look into it.
  4. Locked out of my iPhone.

    Alright, I'll see if I can get there tomorrow. Thankfully, I don't need my phone on weekends as much as weekdays though.
  5. Locked out of my iPhone.

    I really don't know. It's my fault, I had a passcode I remembered perfectly set up, but it strained my fingers a little bit after typing it in frequently so i set it to something that was easier and forgot it completely. I hope it's one of those situations which when you go to do something you forget it, and then later you realise what it was. But to be honest, I'm not too much of a good person, so I deserve this.
  6. Hello there. As the title suggests, I have forgotten my passcode and can't get into my phone. I have Touch ID set up but my phone hates me so I have to enter my passcode to enable Touch ID. This is probably pointless as this is a more computer-orientated forum, but it is worth a shot. I really want to avoid the solution of erasing my iPhone as much as possible, as I don't have a backup and have a lot of texts, contacts and other information that I can't get back off my phone. I wouldn't mind erasing if my contacts, call history, voicemails, texts, etc. were kept on my SIM card, but they aren't, annoyingly enough. Is there any other way beside the aforementioned method? Thanks, 1kv.
  7. This post should help you: https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=291260.0
  8. I'd probably have to say the R5 since you can OC it unlike the 8400 but I can't guarantee anything.
  9. So I was using my PC as normal about 10 minutes ago, w my iPhone SE connected to the PC via USB. Had Chrome open at the time with probably 10-11 tabs running. I suddenly got a black screen and the USB connected/disconnected sound constantly going off at the same time as beeps. They are like the beeps you hear when someone has hung up on you, just a higher pitch. I went full crazy mode and yanked my phone out of the socket and went absolutely crazy. Then my screen recovered w no BSODs although the top and bottom corrupted by grey squares for a few seconds before completely recovering. I tried 2 YouTube videos, one from The Simpsons (which I thought may not have had sounds bcus Copyright), so I tried an LTT one and could not hear anything. Used all 3 sources (Monitor, Realtek and Realtek 2nd) and not a drop of sound came out. I'm very stuck right now. My old computer that I'm using (w the 4460) got repaired professionally so it's all good, and nothing should be wrong with it. Now, it's actually supposed to be my backup PC, just in-case. Here's the specs: i5-4460, 8GB AMD R5 RAM, Stock 2GB GTX 960, Gigabyte B85-HD3 ATX Motherboard, Generic 500W PSU that kinda works, and a crappy chinese cooler. It was a pre-built at first so don't expect miracles. TL;DR - My computer went black, corrupted screen, dead sound, my iPhone survived fine. Hopefully you could help me in my quest to hopefully fix this thing. 1kv.
  10. New platform or no?

    Lurick is right. If you're on a tight budget, go i7 but if you don't mind turning your wallet to ashes, new platform is the way to go. In the long run, a new platform is best because they're new parts with the latest features, but if you don't mind saving some money and sacrificing a little bit of that sweet, sweet performance, i7. my 500th post. hurray for s**tposting.
  11. If you're going to be using it a lot, the Dell is best in the long run. If you don't mind the little inconveniences, the Acer is fine.
  12. Closed-back headphones for gaming

    The Sennheiser HD 205s are a great solution to your problem. They have no mic. I have one myself, and they're affordable and durable with excellent sound quality.
  13. $70 is a good price for a Rival 700 by Steelseries. I have one and I LOVE IT.
  14. Yes, because the i5 has more cores and more processing power.
  15. In terms of gaming - not much. In terms of actual computing the i5 is way better.
