  1. it sounds like the system is actually managing to boot to desktop, so at least it's working... does your system have an ssd or a hard drive as the primary o/s drive? what does your display show when you power on the system? is your system hanging on the BIOS logo, or the windows spinning circle? could you check the temps in the BIOS and report back here with the numbers?
  2. My ancient 7260 chip allows me to tell it I'd like 5GHz instead, you could see if your existing wireless adapter has something similar hidden away somewhere... How close are you to the router exactly? Could be your WiFi adapter refusing to do 5GHz because it's far away. If you can get an extended antenna for it then that could be an option.
  3. My girlfriend streams (in-home) almost exclusively from her gaming PC. VNC is used to do things on the desktop like changing settings and restarting things (it's a bit clunky but always works reliably, and reconnects after a reboot to the login screen), and then Steam in-home streaming for everything else requiring low-latency input. I wouldn't say it's the best solution for permanent computer use (she occasionally runs into games that don't like being streamed), but it's definitely more than usable. You should be able to add custom apps such as Visual Studio etc into steam and then strea
  4. I run a bunch of websites on my server using Lighttpd (although I recommend Apache). I just have one cert which signs all the websites on my server, since a single cert can hold several website names on it. I use Let's Encrypt too by the way Each individual site on my server has its own folder, so if someone requests google.com and points it to my server IP, my server looks for a folder called 'google.com' and if it's found, it will serve the website in that folder. If it's not found, it tells the user they're in the wrong place. Getting a bit more technical..
  5. Expensive keyboards exist with true N key rollover, some of which have each individual key wired in to the microcontroller individually, and others using the typical matrix arrangement. An example of such is the Happy Hacking Keyboard - which supports full rollover over PS/2, as long as there is BIOS support. LOL the good old days of Windows XP... computer would completely lock up but still respond to mouse movement and keyboard activity . DOS is so guilty of 'buffering' interrupts though, for lack of a better word
  6. Edit: Just realised you already got it checked out - my bad. Should read the whole thread next time ?
  7. Hard Disk Sentinel has an option for that
  8. Noooo nooo nooooo that won't work. Go grab your old router and turn off it's DHCP server, give it a static IP (make sure it's an unused one on the same subnet as your Ubiquiti router). Plug your portable hard drive into the old router, then plug your old router into your Ubiquiti router. Point your pc to the static IP of the old router. Problem solved. This might be quite a complicated process though if you're not used to networking, I'm hoping someone else has the time to break it down further.
  9. It's gonna have to be either all or nothing unfortunately like snipergod87 said. Save up some mula and grab yourself a 1TB ssd, format the hard drive and keep any new games on there. If you knew you were gonna migrate to an SSD beforehand you could have pre-partitioned it so a utility such as EaseUS/Macrium Reflect/Partition Wizard could easily migrate the OS while keeping your games on the hdd. In future, limit your Windows partition to say 100GB, while leaving the rest of the hdd for data files, so if you choose to migrate to an SSD you can just clone the windows partition over w
  10. Quite a neat idea, although personally I keep my documents folder synchronised with my flash drive, and all my videos/programs/games/backups on two backup drives (using FreeFileSync). I have another drive that I use for downloads/tempfiles and steam games (which can be re-downloaded any time). Might take a leaf out of your book and keep my files slightly more organised though lol. One unused advantage of your symbolic linking is that it allows you to have multiple OS installs (windows 7, windows 8, windows 10 etc) alongside each other, presenting you with the same desktop and docum
  11. Luckiest: "Borrowing" an i5-4430s to find it fit perfectly into my mobo - that was before I knew about CPU generations/sockets etc. Unluckiest: Frying the HDMI and artifacting my HTPC's video card
  12. Late last year I bought myself a cheap TC-SUNBOW 60GB SSD to for my daily-driver laptop. So far it's been going fine, however at times there is some noticeable performance fluctuation during boot-up. Sequential reads are around 320MB/s, and sequential writes around 87MB/s. So far it's managed 1.2TBW and has 99% health remaining. The low sequential writes had me wondering how many NAND chips are inside this thing, and well... ...yeah. Inside is a legit-looking SM2246XT controller (Sata 3, No DRAM), and one no-brand 64GB 2-bit/cell MLC NAND flash chip.
  13. Definitely replace that power supply. Given you're in a hot country, and most capacitors are rated 10,000 hours at best running at between 80C to 110C (which is about 1 year of non stop use) - the capacitors in your PSU are most likely almost dried out by now and aren't holding enough juice to get your computer going.
  14. Could be your PSU then... What brand is it and how long have you had it for? The hot weather's probably had it shot
  15. Sounds like a power supply issue to me. If it was a broken CPU the motherboard would stay on, doing nothing, or just beep (I've had that issue already). Motherboards usually always stay on during a failure mode if it's not related to the power supply (or other power delivery issues on the motherboard) as most UEFI firmwares are not programmed to shutdown upon encountering a hardware fault.
