  1. Lol, Going to their store is ridiculous because its always crowded. Getting a tech to come to you is like ordering something from Amazon compared to getting it from Wal-mart.
  2. Yup, and dealing with them when I was a tech at a local shop was also great. They would just send their certified technicians into my shop to get a warrantied product fixed. No questions if we had tampered with it, or broke something. When I bought my XPS 15 last year, it was fine, till the mobo broke last month, and they sent over their tech to my house and he fixed the machine with a new board. I am very picky about workmanship on my expensive stuff, and the guy didn't leave a single scratch to my machine.

    Can't believe my date stamp was accurate.
  4. Paul and Kyle Have Really Grown Up

    yea, but this is a video recorded podcast. There are some like The Apartment that I actually watch with full attention.

    What archive thumbnail? jeez that is hilarious.
  6. Paul and Kyle Have Really Grown Up

    I was cleaning out my old HDD, and I found this screenshot I took. The screenshot is dated December 12, 2014. So this is a almost 4 year old episode! God; time flew to lightning speed.
  7. Paul and Kyle Have Really Grown Up

    I like to listen to it like any other podcast when playing a video game that doesn't require sound as the main thing (usually play fortnite with podcasts). I like it when they talk about random stuff, not just tech, or if they rant about what they're talking about. Its why I like Jayz 2 Cents podcast because its two guys talking about random stuff with a sprinkle of tech.

    Anyone else remember this?
  9. Yea, its too much information to handle within the same week. Cancer is a bitch, and I'm staying optimistic for the both of them.
  10. Virus Possibly Destroyed My Motherboard?

    It won't even turn on the fans or bring anything up to the screen. I called dell, and they said that the LED code that the computer is telling me means that something on the motherboard is fried. My warranty expires next month so I'm very lucky that its going to get serviced.
  11. Virus Possibly Destroyed My Motherboard?

    It was like one of those fake installers that ask you to decline and uncheck a few things before doing anything. I just can't believe what has happened from the way things went through.
  12. Story Time! This is on a dell XPS 9560 I was trying to patch a pirated version of Light room (I know, but I do pay for the software for 3 other computers, can't afford to upgrade the license). While running the utility, I was also updating windows. I realized the utility is janky when scrolling down the ToS and seeing check marked items to install toolbars and other things. I unchecked all of them and like the idiot I am, I continued to install this thing. Instantly Malwarebytes and windows defender keep popping up messages about infections, things started playing in the background, and my track pad started to get a mind of its own. Suddenly my PC restarts and windows continues its restart update. I guess windows 10 did its usual restart and it didn't relate to the virus. When logging back in, I get blue screened, and the error is about the file managing system malfunctioning. This happen\ed 10 more times before I initiated a fresh install on my PC. After initiating, I went to use the washroom. When I came back, the PC was off, and when I tried to turn it on, the charging light blinked 3 times, 2 times amber, 1 times white. The support tech told me that it has something to do with the motherboard, and it may be fried. Can a virus kill a motherboard?

    They need to expand their website for this kind of stuff.
  14. Ear wax remove?

    I didn't know I had ear wax problems till I went to see a doctor for a checkup before a surgery. She checked my ear and said that I have a lot of ear wax in one ear. She asked if it ever affected my hearing and I said no... till she made a rubbing skin sound with her hands for each ear and asked if I can hear it correctly. My heart sunk in when I noticed the difference in hearing (I always had good hearing before this test). I still said I can hear it perfectly and saved this discussion for my primary doctor for the next time I see him. My doctor suggested a few drops of Hydrogen Peroxide and to wash it out, but I found this kid on Amazon. Basically, when I step out the shower, I drip a few drops of that thing in my wet ears, then suck it out with that suction bottle (everything is gentle). Then I clean the bottle by suctioning water into it and out of it. Then I use the same bottle to spray water into my ear and let it wash out the oily residue from the chemical. This cleans my ear fully. As a last resort, I take a 1/4 piece of paper tower, roll it up into a tube thing like a quetip, and dry out my ear. Hope this helps, and the kit is cheap. I do it twice a month or so. I also don't follow the described instructions, and basically drip the bottle into my ears that are already wet, and use the bottle to suck out the water. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B004BKP4A6/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  15. Messed Up Audio Config on Scarlett 6i6

    I got my audio interface + mic from my cousin back, and I set it up 2 weeks ago. This time I setup both output and input to go through the interface compared to only using a mic with it last time I had it (long time ago). It worked wonderfully, but I didn't know the mic is not working in windows. The Scarlett mix control picks up the signal, and the gain meter on the unit, and the software meter both display the mic working, but windows does not raise or lower its volume meter as if the device isn't plugged in. Windows sound recorder isn't able to record any audio, but Adobe Audition said that the "device isnt working" in the MME setting which has always been the default. BUT it works when changing the device class to ASIO. And I can't understand why or how. I also don't know how to change windows sound to record from the ASIO setting since I believe that MME is not working. Both "line out, and playback devices show "jack info not available" in the properties. Windows Sound Troubleshooter isn't helping either. Also the mix control "MIX" inputs changed from "left, and right" to "mono" on all 8 inputs, and there is no way to change them back. I've reset the defaults twice and they don't seem to do much. Basically I want my mic to be able to record audio as if I was buying a 30 dollar USB mic, and I also want to hear my PC as if I was plugging my speakers into the mobo. How can I go about fixing this issue? I am a complete noob who got this device for cheap and I don't know how to fully utilize it. I realize I am probably not making much sense since I barley know what I'm talking about, but if you have any questions, please let me know. Pictures:
