  • Biography
    An easy going bloke who used to lurk for the longest time. If you like pones, furr, anime, animals, tech, planes, trucks, trains, bacon, guns, freedom and many other things we can be friends.

    I got my start in the tech world when I was but wee lad. My sister had a broken laptop screen and the local shops wanted $800 to repair it (the computer was only worth $500) she begged me to do it, so one YouTube video and Amazon shopping trip later, I had it done for $30 (the price of the screen) and dinner. That was my foot in the door, which ended up just opening itself. Even though I used to work custodial at a school I still did loads of tech things. Anything from running communication cable throughout the building, installing security cameras, large scale projection, lighting, and live sound mixing. I'm in a band too! But as the sound man (I won't self advertise tho. So if you're really that curious, DM me). But I hope to one day be working as a live event soundman.

    Windows Audio Crashing

    Unfortunately, I don't think I can be of much more help here. Sorry But I couldn't agree more about your choice of Windoge.

    Typo In Category Label

    I always hated that it was "a lot" and "in between" rather than "alot" and "inbetween" because the latter makes much more sense to me when reading it aloud. Fuck the grammer police, ima write it mah way! There's alot of text inbetween the covers of a book.

    SSD dying?

    I don't like EVO's, they're triple level cell. But TLC has come a long way. If you can't afford the PRO line, the EVO would be your next best option. Either one is gonna outlast many PC builds. Cloning an SSD to an SSD probably is much faster than HDD to SSD, but I can't stand cloning personally. Just brings over so much junk. I always have a pretty bad time when I do it. I guess because I have so few programs to install anyways, maybe that's why I have no problem just doing a whole reinstall.

    SSD dying?

    Invest in a high end SSD to avoid such problems and future worries (and only do a fresh install of your OS, trust me). Something like a Samsung 970 PRO (if NVME) or 860 PRO (if SATA). @Princess Cadence You really do that? Damn. That's way too much work. My Samsung 840 PRO has over 12TB of writes and still works like day one. Never had error or issue (knock on wood).

    Win7 Pro AND Ultimate after repair

    Go to file manager > Computer > System Properties (top left) > Advance System Settings > Settings (under Startup and Recovery). There you should be able to select which OS to be the default boot. Try setting your Pro as your default.

    GTA 5 not using more than 4GB VRAM on GTX 1070

    Well to be honest, GTA is very CPU intensive, so a GPU change wouldn't do a whole lot. Besides that, it runs better with Intel (idk why, but I know it does). I wouldn't expect constant 60fps in the city, it's very dense with lots of cars, people, players, and explosions to spawn and handle. Outside the city yes, I'd expect a constant 60fps with your setup. You shouldn't be experiencing a bottleneck with your CPU. But you do have somewhat slower RAM, Ryzen loves its faster RAM (3200+ Mhz), so that is a consideration. Also, I would follow @Tech Guru's advice with the settings changes. Maybe even turn down anisotropic filtering by at least half. I don't have a very nice system, so I don't get even try and play with those settings.

    New iPod Touch might be in the works for 2019

    Yap. You can have access to the App Store, iTunes, and whatever else iPhones can get. Only thing you can't do is make calls and texts. Yet, there are wifi only apps that basically mimic calling and texting. So it really is just an iPhone without cellular network access. But they're still expensive.

    you can't pwn n00bs in Forknife on one of those.

    Windows Audio Crashing

    Solid choice in OS. I'm not familiar with either headset, but if they have software like mine does, try the uninstall reinstall thing.

    773 Million Record "Collection #1" Data Breach

    I've been getting spam emails since day one. Things like "package undelivered" or "you have a new message" shit like that. Some how Outlook actually is able to filter all that shit out into my spam folder. (decided i didn't wanna quote some things, and idk how to fukin delete the quote boxes. this forum site is weird as balls)

    773 Million Record "Collection #1" Data Breach

    Holy fuck. Strangely, I haven't seen that on my mine yet. I wonder if I will?

    773 Million Record "Collection #1" Data Breach

    How the fuck does this shit happen? Like, legit. That's a fuck ton of websites. Do they all share the same provider or something? There's so much to scroll through, I honestly wonder if I'm affected..

    Windows Audio Crashing

    Which Windows? I had this issue in Windows 7, and it finally was corrected by me uninstalling the older version of Logitech Gaming Software and installing their latest one. I did that because of my Logitech headset. So if you have software similar to that, where it can/does use or change or interact in some way with the audio service, do as I did.

    PC making strange sounds

    I notice your squeaky chair. Other than that, everything sounds normal. Your HDD is whisper quiet compared to mine.
