    program fault

    the indexing happens in the beginning, the d1 - d4 are the digits, but i don't think you mean this, right? but it is like i said in the beginning, it was originally from an watchdogs timer project on instructables. and it worked, so i wanted ti make it count up if it receives an signal of an IR sensor. actually just a counting devise with a led display instead of an lcd. https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-Time-BOMB-Airsoft-Using-the-KYX-5461AS-4-D/

    the same happens but in the opposite direction, first the last one than the other tree. and it also doesn't tick, so i am an little bit confused because the program i adjusted worked perfectly, and afterwards it didn't and i used the same command to light up the display

    program fault

    thaks for the reaction, but it didn't work either. I lowered the refreshrate althe way to 0 and it still didn't work. with the refreshrate on 1 it maks the 3 last digit barely visible an the first one normal, just like 10, 100 and 1000. when i set it to 0 it lights up completely normal, all 4 digit with the normal dim it is suppose to do. but it doesn't count or change the digits. it just stays on 4 zero's. ps. i had to adjust the array part from n = [0,0,0,0]; to int n[] = {0,0,0,0}; before the arduino ide(version 1.8.5) it accepted. is this correct or do i have to change it to something else

    no problem, its the effort that counts. thanks for trying.

    program fault

    indeed that did not work it didn't work either, actually not at all. not one digit light up. when i change the int main() in to an void and this void add to the void loop. it lights up with zero's, and when i put the canter in the int main the same thing happens.

    program fault

    this didn't work either, but tanks for answering it is indeed highly possible that this is the case. i didn't even know that a multiplexed led display existed, i thought that it was a normal display. but i don't really get why the original program works and my program not, i used the same command? but I am going to look it up anyway and i will post something if i found an solution or not, I already thank all of you for helping

    program fault

    thanks for the help anyways, it the effort that count i know it was just an example for the counting, but it seems good so i tried it. but an delay does't help. they keep flashing with minimum light that is still unreadable, exept for the first one off course. but they will flash slower. ps. i can not work very good with arrays

    program fault

    no this didn't work either, with this it only shows the first digit an the other flash really fast but with almost no light, if you look very closely it does count and display. but it is unreadable. can this be a power issue? i will also include the electronic circuit, Ps. it is originally from a paintball time bomb hobby thingy or something but the resistors an wiring of the display are the same. and with the time bomb program the display works fine. not to be rude or so but I don't really get what a lcd has to do with this. i can program lcd, but i am new to the led displays and led matrics, so this i the first thing i am building with this display Original timer code.ino

    program fault

    i tried it before by placing it after the last } with seg = 0. then it only displayed the last program line. so if you would set the digit order like this 1234 than it only showed the 4th digit.

    program fault

    I have problem with my code. i want to make a simple counter with an 4 digit 7 segment led display. it is not a big project but it is to test the led display, i never used it before. anyway the project works in the serial monitor and with an 16 by 2 lcd. but with the led display, it doesn't do what i had in mind. It needs to count upwards to the number 9999. the counting happens and the digits works, but not at the same time, it doesn't properly show the number 1248 for example, not even number 10. so is there anyone who knows something about this that can help me? here is the part of the code where i think the fault is. void loop(){ seg++; selectDwriteL(4,seg); if (seg > 9){ w++; selectDwriteL(3,w); if (seg>9, w>9){ x++; selectDwriteL(2,x); if (seg>9, w>9, x>9){ y++; selectDwriteL(1,y); if(seg>9, w>9, x>9, y>9){ y=0; } x=0; } w=0; } seg=0; } here is a small video how it now works. the full program is also here but it isn't finished yet.

    dinesaur pc

    he needs a 2tb ssd that costs about 300 - 400 euro's in my country, which is apparently even more US dollar, and i know it is the slowest thing in a pc but what i meant is that it is faster than the original hdd from 9 years ago. and maybe it sounds weird but his pc doesn't use the full 120 mb/s write speed. it uses only half of it and to add more frustration is the hdd mostly not even busy when the pc is so called loading. thats why i wanted to upgrade. maybe the new system will use the full speed. maybe not. i don't know. i hope so but from what i understand that every one has said, it will be almost impossible to do a good upgrade from cpu and gain performens by this system. and the only thing that can possibly work is a ssd. Please correct my if I'm wrong.

    dinesaur pc

    the pc doesn't even use the full speed of the 2 tb wd black hdd which is only half a year old. the preveous hdd was a segeate and died. so it is a pretty fast hdd and way to big to replace with an ssd for price reasons. he is probbably not willing to pay 300 to 400 dollar for an ssd. so it is not gonna affect his pc at al and not possible without an reinstall of windows , to replace the cpu.? i did it with my preveous pc whch was an windows 8 with an amd e2 cpu to an i5 4690 cpu

    dinesaur pc

    the problem is that he doesn't want a ssd, i already offert that solution. i don't know exactly why, i mean i have one. but he doesn't want one. and to anwser the question about the ram, it is already 16 gb ddr3. so plenty enough. he wants to do a little bit of blender rendering and 3d printer software like craftware, as a hobby thing. but the thing he wants the most is to speed up things like adobe pdf viewer and exel sheets, which both take a minute or 2 to load with small files. which is ridiculously long for those programs

    hello everyone, my dad asked my recently if there is a way to speed up his pc. so I went searching for is pc specs to find out how power full it already was. not really power full though. it is based on an intel i7 860. yes indeed, a first gen i7 in 2018. so i sad he can ugrad it with an i7 8700 or an 8700 k. even an i3 8400 is better than this first gen i7. but anyway that is not the point. the point is that he added that he wants to keep his existing os. which is een windows 7 pro sp1. this windows 7 pro is out of date for already an year. you can see that here so the question is if it is out dated for an year, can you than upgrade from first gen intel to eight gen intel without any boot problems or reinstall from windows (offcourse with installing drivers or not if possible) and does it make a differece if it is up to date?
