  1. Bought my sister a new laptop for Christmas, bought winter tires for my car, and then I bought winter tires for my dad's car... I still have 4 more presents to go ugh

  2. I just bought 8GB's of DDR2 to replace dying ram in this laptop that originally ran windows Vista but now runs windows 10. Needless to say, I returned it and bought a new laptop. 

  3. AMD Compute Cores

    Sorry, I just looked it up again and it said something like 2C+3G... Further investigation says 2C is 2 CPU cores and 3G is 3 GPU cores?
  4. Hi everyone, I went to the local Canada Computers and was browsing through the laptop section as I need one for work and home. I came across an Asus laptop that had compute cores in an AMD A9-9410, along with an AMD Radeon R5 graphics card. I've been looking for answers because I don't understand what Compute cores are, or how they work and affect the workload, even if it is just light word processing, web browsing, and video viewing (not editing at all). The laptop in question can be found here. P.s. I'm not going to purchase this specific laptop, I had a better one in mind, but would like some more information on how these compute cores work. I'd really appreciate it if there were a tech quickie video made or something too, but guess that's something I can't quite ask for, lol.
  5. are extra mouse buttons useful

    I actually have keys mapped on my mouse for different things in Final Fantasy XIV, it worked out really well for me, but it depends on person to person what their preferences are or what they would be using the buttons for.
  6. We need an actual doctor... @DrMacintosh any idea?
  7. Check to see if your Linux distro has AHCI support if you're doing an install with grub and all of that. Sometimes when disks are in AHCI mode, installs don't happen because the driver is missing since it isn't native.

  9. microsoft supporting all windows versions forever

    I work at a hospital. We are currently using Windows Embedded, and some parts of the hospital are using Windows 7, while other parts are stuck on Windows XP because that's the best OS for the software. In the new hospital that has been built, the Information Services staff is busy working on implementing Windows 10 to every single PC (think 600-800) and will not only require stringent testing, but a lot of patience. Rebranding a PC and upgrading the internals will not only cause a PC to not function correctly, but may create lawsuits where programs fail to function or even yield incorrect results. Most organizations running on an OS that seems old do so because that's what works best for them without having any errors. We are going to be upgrading all computers at the organization I work for in the next 6-8 months, but as for now it's a long ways away because the embedded solution works in ways windows 10 refuses to.
  10. A friend of mine had a dying EVGA 970 SC, it would literally crash all his OW games and he couldn't even open a word document without it crashing. I asked him if he wanted my 1070 and gave it to him. Two weeks later he messaged me back and said, "holy crap everything is so detailed!" That's when I knew my mission was accomplished. 

  11. I told my baby cousins I ate all their Halloween candy. They called me fat and began poking my belly. ;~; Well played. 

  12. Finally found someone willing to buy my gaming Pc for $3.1k. I spent maybe $2.5k so the markup must have somehow caught them off guard. Woop woop. 

  13. Coffee

    Can't have those without a sausage farmers wrap tbh.
  14. What song are you listening to right now.

    I was told to listen to this for the vocals.... I'm absolutely jealous.
  15. Grey Keys Worth It?

    I'm not saying yes or no, but if you do not get the buyer protection and try activating and have issues, they won't help you out. I did buy one, and I'm not condoning it because it is a grey area so we cut corners, but my key didn't activate. I did get the protection and explained the issue. The customer service representative was able to do a phone activation and gave me the key to enter once it was complete. The choice is yours.
