    Outside of Boxhill Central,
    A man was sipping on casket wine.
    Heading down to Balwyn McDonald’s,
    I was on the 109.

    Me and some guys from school,
    Heading down to North Richmond.
    We had to go through Victoria street,
    Where everyone’s on heroin.

    Oh when I look back now,
    The tram seems to take for ever.
    Stopping at Victoria Gardens,
    With Daiso, and Hoyts Cinema.
    All thanks to the 109.

    One man is sniffing on paint thinner,
    Another man smells like glue.
    I spend my evening on the 109 tram,
    and that’s when I met you.

    Standing up at the tram stop,
    Opposite the Kew Tram Depot.
    You’d just been to the Skinny Dog.
    Oh, we got the tram together,
    And we both got a myki fine.

    We’re on the 109,
    Were on the 109,
    On the 109

  1. Is there an orange LED on the top Left hand corner of the trackpad?
  2. What is your specs? What are you planning on upgrading with?
  3. https://www.hwp.ru/articles/Blok_pitaniya_dlya_videokart_FSP_Booster_X3_moshchnostyu_300_Vt/ www.kbench.com/?q=node/59377 Everything about this thread wreaks of 2008: https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/fsp-group-booster-x5-please-explain.232436/
  4. 5.25" PSUs did once exist https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16817104054
  5. You have to use the flag "override", like this
  6. One of 2 things will happen, your PC will throttle itself, so it doesn't hit the charger's limit (If the charger has a sense pin), or the charger will turn itself off if it reaches its limit* I don't think older pavilions did the former. 65W will probably be fine, but a 90W is preferable. (I have run a 45W i7 and HD 7670M off a 65W charger before, and it was fine). *(If you use a no-name PSU (Which you should never do), it might not turn off, and just send you shittier and shittier power.)
  7. I've used 18.5V, 19V and 19.5V chargers on my HP. Typically laptops support that range. Buy an official HP charger, not a no name crap. Depending on your specs, a 65W charger might be sufficient. Also, check you're getting the correct barrel jack. HP uses 3 or 4 barrel jack sizes (Mostly for product differentiation)
  8. I consider going from a R9 290 to a R9 280 an upgrade

      Because now I can play games, without my GPU throttling to 450MHz

      that kinda vertical small slim PC case with a dell sticker was my absolute dream PC case back when i was a wee little thing.

  9. Put in your old CPU, and have a read of this https://storage-asset.msi.com/file/pdf/How_to_flash_the_BIOS.pdf Download the latest bios for your board https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/B350-PC-MATE
  10. Did you update your bios before the upgrade?
  11. It is just a decorative piece of crap. You can remove it
