    My razer is getting pretty dull, so I could use a new blade, but I can't afford one, so I'm going to have to be stealthy to get one I think.

    Does anyone know how to say no to windows 10

    This might not be the answer you were looking for, but, if you are running 8.1, I would just upgrade to 10. It's basically the same, but with an actual start bar. And the whole security thing isn't much better on 8.1 than 10, so I don't really see a downside. I would only reccomend refusing the update if you are still running W7 and want to avoid all those security concerns.

    Laptop or Desktop for college?

    Depends really on if you want to have a computer with you in the classroom. If you plan on doing most of your computer work at home, then build a desktop, if you want to remain mobile for note taking and doing your assignments on campus, you can't go past a good laptop.
  4. Hey, So, sometimes my E (main games and general storage) drive doesn't show up when I boot into windows. I have 3 drives in my PC, my SSD boot drive ©, my storage drive (E) and a media drive (F). I have tried several troubleshooting steps to try to isolate the issue. I have: (in order) Replaced the drive (and while replacing the drive, I also changed the SATA cable). Formatted the replacement drive so everything was clean from day 1. Changed the SATA cable again. Changed to a different SATA port on the motherboard. Plugged in a different power cable from the PSU. It is always the E drive, regardless of the SATA cable or port. This has been happening since I had windows 8.1 on my system and I have since upgraded to Windows 10. The problem does resolve itself after restarting the computer, but it can take more then 1 try to get it to show up again (the most retries is 8 according to my partner). So, as far as I can conclude, it's not my OS, or my SATA cable, or my SATA port, or the hard drive itself. The last thing I can think of is it being the motherboard, but I would have thought changing the SATA port would have eliminated that possibility, however, my knowledge (while not insignificant) is still limited, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hard Drive sometimes not showing up

    I finally got around to switching out for a brand new cable, and so far so good, it's been 4 days without a single issue. Thanks for your help man, this has been bugging me for a while now.

    Hard Drive sometimes not showing up

    Alright, it might be possible that I was unlucky enough to switch to another bad cable lol. I'll try switching cable again, I'm pretty sure I have another one lying around somewhere. See how that goes.

    Hard Drive sometimes not showing up

    So I ran Hard Disk Sentinal, it says my drives are all ok and healthy, but it did note that "problems did occur between the communication of the disk and host 103 times". Any ideas based on that? Screenshots below:

    US Moto X in Australia?

    Hey all, I really want the new Moto X Style (or Pure as it's known in the US) and attempted today to buy one from Vodafone who has an exclusive contract to sell them here in Australia. However, I wanted to buy one outright as many publications have said would be available, only to be told that I cannot buy one outright from them as of the 29th of September (yesterday) and can only get one on a plan. So I had a thought, if I used Moto Maker to create my own Moto X and had it shipped here somehow, I could save money, and have a moto maker phone . I just need to find out if anyone knows if a US phone model would work in Australia. I would probably have to change some settings to get it to recognise my SIM, but other than that, is there anything I would need to be aware of in getting this to work? EDIT: I should also point out that shipping won't be an issue as Australia Post offers a service where they can get stuff shipped to Australia from the US that wouldn't normally be available to do so.

    US Moto X in Australia?

    An Update for anyone who may be intersted in this thread. My Motomaker order went through and I was all set to get my new phone, then they cancelled the order on me as they detected that the address I gave them was a freight forwarding service. That happened last night and I was told my refund should go through sometime during the week. A little sad that Motorola don't want people using freight forwarding services as the Moto X is now more difficult to get here in Australia Unless I want to lock in with Vodafone....and screw that. Just a little heads up for anyone who sees this thread and decides to do the same, don't bother as motomaker won't let you ship to a forwarding service. Edit: If I no longer post on this thread, assume that my refund came back through ok, if I have any issues with it, I will post again just to keep people informed of what it's like to deal with Motorola from another country.

    US Moto X in Australia?

    The Moto maker version has an unlocked option yes.

    US Moto X in Australia?

    Update: So I just looked at the actual specs of the Moto X Pure, specifically the Network and Bands section. Networks LTE cat. 6 capable WCDMA CDMA EV-DO GSM/EDGE Bands GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz) UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700 (AWS),1900, 2100 MHz) CDMA (800, 850, 1900 MHz) 4G LTE† (B1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 38, 41) Optus, my current provider, uses GSM bands 900 and 1800. So, in my limited knowledge of these things, it seems to me that this would work. But I could be wrong. I do have hope now though
  12. So....does this mean that Konami, not Kojima Productions have the rights to Metal Gear? If so, I don't know if I'll ever want to play a Metal Gear game that was not made by Kojima himself.
  13. Yes, I actually found the same issue in my Windows update and contacted Windows support and they said that the update failed becuase it hasn't rolled out to me yet and I just need to wait. It's frustrating, but I guess this is how they've chosen to do it. I think I would rather them do it this way than them try to roll it all out at once and the have the thing be horribly broken.
  14. I love this insider option for people who want to grab a free copy of Windows 10. I think Microsoft have realised that people who don't want to pay for windows will always just pirate it. Smart move to just offer these people a free copy, and in return, microsoft gets more BETA testers. I'm most likely going to throw this insider version of windows 10 on my media PC, since I really don't care if the thing crashes, I've only got a small handful of steam games and browsers installed anyway. Does anyone know if there is a time limit for opting in to the insider program? or will it just carry through past release? Seems like Microsoft can almost do no wrong since Nadella was put in charge, great move by them.

    Sound won't stop

    While watching netflix last night, my browser crashed when I turned on my VPN and that annoying repeated sound happened where it rapid fires the last sound on the video. Problem is, it is still happening, even though it is now around 24 hours later and my computer has been turned off at least twice since then, but alas, every time I turn my computer on, there it is again. I have tried disabling all the processes that I think could be the culprit, including my VPN, all my browsers, even my Asus audio centre, all to no avail, any help would be hugely appreciated. Edit: Also, it's definitely not my speakers since I tried unplugging my speakers and putting my headphones in the same port, the sound is still there.

    Sound won't stop

    OK so, update, I unplugged my speakers from my Xonar sound card, and put them in my onboard sound, and it stopped, so I'm guessing this means the issue is with my Sound card, anyone have any experience with this? and any suggestions on what it causing it/how to fix it, or is my sound card essentially dead?

    [Updated, more brands]New MX RGB keyboards form Computex 2015

    Not to say I don't like Ducky, I think they make brilliant keyboards and am so glad that they are making MX RGB products, but the whole simple thing is the reason I wouldn't get one. I love the design of the K70, it looks amazing and the media keys are really good, best volume wheel ever. Also, I've never actually held a ducky, but I feel like you can't get better build quality than the full Aluminum construction of the corsair. But that's all personal opinion really, for any of my friends who look for a clean and simple mechanical, I always point them towards ducky.
  18. Holy crap you are getting screwed, even for Aussie standards, who are you with? I get around 12Mb/s and unlimited downloads with home phone for $60/month on TPG.

    Trouble launching Dark Souls

    Thanks man, that actually fixed it, and kinda confirms my suspicions that GFWL was getting in the way of the game launching before the migration.

    Trouble launching Dark Souls

    SO, the dreaded GFWL is finally gone from Dark Souls 1, everyone rejoice...except me, I can't play the game anymore. Even before the GFWL removal, my main PC has always had troubles launching the game, it would crash as soon as it got to the loading screen. However, since the migration to steamworks, it doesn't even launch the game at all, basically nothing happens when I launch the game. I heard that maybe this had something to do with DSFix, so I uninstalled the game and completely wiped the game folder from my steamapps directory. That did not help at all, still the game will not launch. My PC specs are below, and I am running windows 8.1, any help would be greatly appreciated as I have not been able to play this game for some time.

    Trouble launching Dark Souls

    I have tried that in the past, but I haven't tried that this time since I had just reinstalled it.
  22. A quick google search found this: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=28121 It's an Australian computer shop, but that seems like the kind of thing you're looking for, and I'm sure someone that isn't pccase gear sells it. Have hope my friend, the kind of thing you are looking for does indeed exist. P.S. You are indeed a filthy casual. P.P.S. In seriousness, I do think mechanical keyboards can be bloody expensive for what you get, but I wouldn't trade my Corsair K70 with brown switches for anything. If scissor switch is what you like, than don't let anyone tell you you're wrong. It's all down to preference. That's one thing that I actually think cherry switch keyboards are good for, there are pretty much switches for everybody, and no one can be wrong in their preference. But this does extend to ther keyboards and switch types (except membrane lol) if you like the short travel distance and feel of scissor switch, then go for it.
  23. I really like the the three fan design. Really good looking card, the triple slot cooler interests me, not sure if I agree I only run one card anyway so it shouldn't affect me too badly.

    Buying a modem from overseas

    Huh, that changes things, I guess the question still stands, cause the AC68U, which is a modem/router, not just a router, is like $100 cheaper on amazon than anywhere I've found in Aus so far.
