  1. Hi guys, I hope some can help me with the problems I'm having the last couple of weeks. Since my system updated to 1803 I'm getting random freezes and reboots. If they occur, most often while playing games, sometimes while idling. But other times they don't occur at all. There is no real specific pattern. Yesterday I decided to completely wipe my system and directly installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 1809, but the problem still exists. Event Viewer doesn't give any info, just "Critical Kernel-Power 41" with BugcheckCode 0. There are no bluescreens or anything else that could indicate any problems. My specs: i7-2600K Asrock Z77 Pro4 2x 4GB 1600MHz + 1x 8GB 1600MHz GTX 970 be quiet 580W This configuration was running fine for over 4 years (overall system almost 8 years already), and on the day 1803 gets installed I'm starting to have those problems. That would be too much of a coincidence that some part started to act faulty on the same day a windows update is installed. I tried installing the latest driver in case of some compatibility issues, didn't help. I suspected it to be some Meltdown or Spectre fix that is bundled since 1803, and tried disabling them with InSpectre but also to no avail. Does anyone have other clues as to what might be causing this problem?
  2. I now thought about another possible cause: the motherboard could cause errors, because at the same time one hdd started to report a corrupted filesystem. We currently don't have a way to test in another system.
  3. Hi, I'm asking for help on behalf of a friend of mine. Yesterday he got a distorted image after waking his pc up from sleep, but it didn't happen again after a restart. Since then he couldn't start his game and he got the message that the app has been blocked from accessing the graphics hardware, and two bluescreen code 116 appeared. Most guides suggest to use DDU and reinstall the driver. So far the driver has been removed, but every time he starts to install the driver, doesn't matter which way (windows update, device manager, nvidia setup, ...) it always causes a black screen followed by no signal, and needing to hard reset his system. He's using an old GTX 460. Any other chances to get it working again, or is it pretty much dead?
  4. nothing special. i plugged it in to charge and left it alone while doing something different. after i came back it did its thing.
  5. Hi, I've got some serious problem. I'm running still CyanogenMod on my phone, did run fine up until 1h ago. Trebuchet keeps crashing and forces a soft restart of my phone, so I can't try any of the possible solutions that you can find, like deleting settings and cache of the launcher. Anyone got an idea how to possibly fix this without completely wiping my phone?
  6. Just bought an adapter and wanted to let people know that might be wondering if it is possible: in my case it works perfectly after a bit of tinkering with the custom resolution utility.
  7. Hi, I don't know if this is the correct subforum but lets hope so. I found an older monitor that only has VGA input and I wanted to use it as a secondary display. The problem I have is that the resolution is quite low for what I'm trying to achieve and DSR is not supported over analog outputs (I'm using a 970). My question is, could I use a Displayport to VGA adapter to enable DSR? I have not found any topics on this specific use case, so I wondered if someone tried something like this or if someone has enough knowledge to let me know if this would even work.
  8. thanks KamiKatze, last time i checked out dsr, it was completely useless as it would blur everything to an unrecognizable degree, now it works actually pretty good
  9. thanks for the help, appreciate it. after the 1511 update, windows didnt ignore updates that should have been ignored, now got them blocked again and installed the 353.38 driver. unfortunately those don't seem to work anymore "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".
  10. hey guys, i really hope someone can help me with this. for about 3 years now im running my 1080p monitor at 2560x1440@60 first problems appeared when i upgraded to windows 10, all newer drivers dont let me add my custom resolution, but i could solve this problem by using the 353.30 /353.38, which seems to be the last one that provides working custom resolution settings through the nvidia control panel almost half a year later i thought, that nvidia would be able to solve this problem, but now that i updated to 1511 (th2) and realized that this piece of shit drivers still dont have working custom resolutions i wanted to revert back to the old 353.38 ones, but nope it reverts them back to 358.87 (already blocked graphics in windows updates) with cru i can add resolutions, but i cant get the right settings, wether i select any automatic preset or manual, the screens begins to flicker when i select the new resolution i also tried to integrate a backup of the custom resolutions (with nvidia custom resolution backup tool) but it doesnt seem to work at all. my setup: asrock z77 pro4 2600k (integrated graphics enabled) gtx 970 (now on 359.00) 16gb ddr3 1600 17" 1280x1024 vga on integrated graphics 24" 1920x1080 (runs fine with 2560x1440) dvi-d of gtx 970 1080p tv over hdmi on gtx 970
  11. Hi guys, I've got a pretty specific problem. After I upgraded to Windows 10 I dialed in my settings like I want them to be, this includes also removing some folders from Indexing for the search (btw, I did this on all my pcs and notebooks, and only on my main system this problem occured). The first day worked fine, but since after when I search for options from the settings-app they won't show up, neither in start menu search nor in settings-app search itself, only settings from the old control panel appear. I can acces those options in the settings-app, but I dont want to have to click through those menus all the time, I just want to search for what I need and get to open it. What I tried thus far: - sfc /scannow - troubleshooting for Indexing, which comes up with incorrect permissions for the search folder what I cant seem to be able to fix - rebuilding index - reregistering the settings-app - creating a new user in hope for recreating the search It is almost impossible to search for this specific problem, so I hope someone can help me with this one, since the last thing I want to do now, is reinstalling windows because of a faulty index.
  12. sorry for the late response, going to look into those suggestions, thanks a lot for the moment.
  13. Hi guys, need some help in searching for a tool that suits best my needs. At the moment I have a larger than usual picture and video collection that is now kind of a mess. Most important, the program has to give me some kind of tagging mechanism on different levels or in categories, hard to describe: I hope this example will show what I mean: Category: Location Date Content Tags: here jan something there 2012 else It should give me the ability to just select already added tags to new files/folders in their respective category, e.g. I don't want to have 2012 in a tag selection in the category content. it doesnt have to give me a view of the files, primarily it has to give me the ability to find stuff faster. Also it does not have to support just images, it can support any filetype as long it is customizable. As of now I'm working with around 250-350k pictures in about 8k folders and around 2k videos in 150 folders. Those folders are already somewhat sorted and organized, but some files cross categories and I don't want to have 30 duplicates of one file. I already searched the web, but didn't find something suitable to my needs. It would be nice if someone could suggest something that could help me do my stuff, it would be much appreciated. If it is even a tool for free, would be great. thanks already in advance.
  14. i like them front facing speakers of the z2 and dbrand for doing those sponsorings with you guys and other youtubers as well.
  15. My favorite part about the G3 are those massive multitasking capabilities. I would love to be able to respond to messages without interrupting my other activities.
  16. yup, retailers that have it available charge 70€, every other one that has it cheaper doesn't have it available until july
  17. its a little bit cheaper but not enough not available for me, only import for 130+ so i think im gonna go and give the tbone a try
  18. yeah, so the snowball is around 80€, too much for me at this time and the only audio technica i found that has usb is the at2020 at around 130€ ...
  19. do you mean the regular or ICE one? if its the first, it's way over my budget.
  20. hi guys, i've got some annoying problems with my current mic or more likely my microphone inputs of my pc (using onboard sound). every mic i have has a very noticeable background hiss which can be lowered within the recording devices manager but then no one i'm talking with can't hear me because then my voice is too quiet. so i thought because my headset broke, and is glued together atm, i could just replace it with a decent pair of headphones and a standalone mic, but i don't know which to choose. i have only a limited budget (max 60 €, ca 70 US$) and i think it should be an usb mic because of my defective inputs. the options i have, are a "t.bone sc440 usb" (60€) are any other options you guys can suggest, maybe a usb soundcard/3.5mm mic combo? some useful suggestions or tips would be highly appreciated.
  21. This is my first news-report here on the forum, and I'm not fluently English, so bear that in mind. The "Chaos Computer Club" (short: CCC) presses charges against the German government, the "Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution", the president of the Bundesnachrichtendienst (German secret service) and the Miltary Counterintelligence. This happens because of the leaks that Snowden provided, it is certain that domestic and foreign secret services violate laws. In particular they accuse the government and constitution protection of violating three laws: - § 99 StGB (StGB: German criminal code): forbidden secret service agent activity - § 201 StGB: violation of personal life and secret area - § 258 StGB: obstruction of justice. In addition to this, they also demand to be Snowden as witness with safe-conduct, as well as effective protection against extradiction to the U.S. This is just a short summary. The source ist computerbase.de, in German of course. I shared this with you, because, as far as I know, this is the first case that a government gets officialy accused of those things on the basis of the leaks. What are your thoughts about this?
  22. Hi guys, Because there isn't that great of a selection of usb sensor bars (at least in Germany), I wanted to built one by myself. This is my first try doing something like this and wanted to ask for some advice to be on the safe side. I want to use 4x Osram LD274 LEDs (datasheet: http://www.reichelt.de/index.html?&ACTION=7&LA=3&OPEN=0&INDEX=0&FILENAME...) , and power it by USB (5V; 100mA ?) With this setting (see picture below) each "lane" would be at 50mA (?), and therefore I would need 46Ohm resistors, but there are only 43 and 47Ohm available, which of those should i get? Did I forget something, or is this drawing completely wrong? I don't want to short out the LEDs Help would be much appreciated, and sorry for possible grammar mistakes^^.
  23. Thanks for all these answers. I didn't have any intention on using it, i just wanted to know if this is possible.
  24. Hi, my question I want to ask is meant to be serious. I found a video of a German hardware-related magazine where they wanted to see if thermal paste is necessary or something like ketchup is also possible to cool. They used an Intel C2D E6600 and their results under full load were: - 71°C without any paste - 54°C Arctic Cooling MX-2 - 57°C tooth paste - 53°C ketchup - 55°C body-lotion - 57°C honey Are these results real, or could they be fake? Linus could you reproduce this experiment? Here is the link for the Video: (Warning: German :))Sorry for bad grammar, I'm not used to write in English.^^
