  1. I have an AMD FX-6100 (I know I may need an upgrade soon) clocked at 4.0 Ghz @ 1.3125 Volts and I am getting 54C in AIDA64 but when I run Cinebench I get 63C. Can anyone explain me why is there such a big difference? Also, what do you think is more accurate as a thermal test? Thanks in advance!

    Screen Artifacts

    My GPU seems to have a problem and shows these red bars. Do you think it is fixable? Can it be a driver problem? Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!

    Help with laptop gpu

    My laptop's GPU (GTX 260M) had a problem and it waas causing my laptop to shut down immediately after the BIOS, so I decided to replace it. I found a Quadro FX 2800M on eBay but when I installed it, the laptop at the beginning refused to power on, but after a few tries it powers on but with a black screen, no BIOS, and the it turns off. Can someone tell me if the Quadro is compatible with my laptop or what might be the cause of the problem? Thanks in advance!

    "Ctrl" Key Stuck

    While as I was using my Dell XPS lapotop the "Ctrl" key started leaning to the left corner and sometimes it gets stuck under the laptop. I have tried removing it and placing it back but it keeps on leaning and getting stuck. Can someone help me? Thanks in advance!
  5. No it is not volume up and down, there is a different key for them.
  6. Can someone please tell me what the top row keys do? Also, I have a few keys ("d", "r", "n", "i", "m")that need to be pressed multiple times in order to work. I have had this keyboard for almost 3 years now. Do you think that they have been damaged? I have cleaned it many times. Thanks in advance!

    7970 New drivers problems

    I had to go all the way back to 15.7 All the 16.x.x drivers prompted an error about Qt5Core.dll missing from Radeon Settings and I couldn't fix it, so I went back to the Catalyst days and I have no problems now.

    7970 New drivers problems

    Thanks for all your help guys. Installing older drivers fixed my problem but does this mean that I will never be able to update to a newer driver? Am I stuck to this and only this one?

    7970 New drivers problems

    I was using the same drivers on my XFX 7970 for so long, but yesterday I decided to update them. I used AMD's clean up utility and installed new drivers using the auto-detect system. They were installed correctly but after a while I saw a flicker on my screen. I thought it wasn't something and I kept on using my computer. But then, after a few minutes another came. And then after a few more minutes another sudden screen flicker appeared. So I understood that something's wrong with the drivers. In my attempt to fix that I installed a bunch of other drivers from AMD, but nothing changed. It flickers out of the blue, with no relation to heat or GPU usage. Also, just a few minutes ago, my drivers crashed and my windows explorer(using Windows 7-64bit) changed to the white "safe modish" look. What do you think that is happening with my system? Is it common? Should I install even older drivers, like 15.7.1? Thanks in advance!

    The Kuhler 1250 looks like a beast. I hope it performs like one too.

    Need Photoshop help!

    When I make a gradient overlay my shape which was green now becomes black and fades to white going from the one corner to the other. Is there an other way to do it? Also where did you see that he uses a gradient?
