    CM Storm Recon software/lighting question

    I've recently bought the CM Storm Recon mouse and installed the software (after I found it in zip format on cmstorm.com). The default profile for the mouse has different LED settings for the 4 different DPI levels. Is it possible to mimic this setup in a custom profile? It seems that one is...

    Losing respect for Cooler Master... [Update: somewhat rescinded]

    Yeah, I kinda found out they use rar after buying a CM Storm Recon, so that's probably what I'll do. I've used 7-zip before. The rant was really more about the principle of the matter. I shouldn't need extra software to install the driver. I sent their support an email asking why they...

    Losing respect for Cooler Master... [Update: somewhat rescinded]

    Seems they only offer their driver downloads in rar format. I'm well aware that I can download 3rd party compression tools that will allow me to open this file format. The thing is, it is a completely unnecessary step. They could provide the .exe download like the rest of the civilized world...

    Realtek drivers don't make 'Headphone' device.

    Just some old Radio Shack Optimus Pro 25s. I've also just bought a Plantronics Gamecom 780, but I've also setup friends with standard stereo sets that also have a similar Realtek HD setup.

    Realtek drivers don't make 'Headphone' device.

    My computer at work has Intel HD Audio, and in the Windows 7 Playback Devices tab, there is a listing for 'Speakers' (rear line out) and 'Headphones' (front line out). My motherboard at home has Realtek HD Audio (ASRock Z77 Extreme6), and only has a listing for 'Speakers'. When I plug in...

    New battery, motherboard still loses BIOS & Time settings when unplugged.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I've tried that as well. I'm really not sure where to go from here. I would like it to work, but the PC is plugged in most of the time. The only thing left is to check the solder joints on the battery mount.

    ASRock Z77 Extreme6 latest Virtu MVP doesn't work...

    An update.... I downgraded one version to the 2nd to latest free software. It did 'work' in that I was able to enable the settings. However, it introduced artifacts in both a support game as well as an unsupported game I was trying to play. So, I decided to try out the trial of the MVP2...

    New battery, motherboard still loses BIOS & Time settings when unplugged.

    I've got a motherboard that seems to lose BIOS and time settings when unplugged. I've installed a brand new battery, checked that it indeed reads 3V (3.28 to be specific), made sure the contacts are as clean as I can get them (they look brand new), and made sure the battery is a tight fit...

    ASRock Z77 Extreme6 latest Virtu MVP doesn't work...

    Hi, I've just built a computer with the Z77 Extreme6 and I started out by installing the VirtuMVP software from the ASRock site. It seemed to work, as both the Hyperformance and Virtual VSync switches were both enabled and turned on. I got an update notification from the software, so I...

    SATA to IDE drive capped at 3.9MB/s

    I wanted to post here because I'm experiencing the exact same issue. First, my setup: ASRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard (Intel Z77 SATA controller and an ASMedia SATA controller) and two different SATA to IDE converters Rosewill RC-204 (Silicon Image SIL3811 chipset)...

    Very strange problem: wireless doesn't work if processor is running at full speed

    I've got a compaq v2718wm who's wireless will not transmit if the processor is running at full speed. I originally had a case open with HP about it, because at the time it seemed as if the wireless only worked when it was unplugged. After a few emails back and forth, I changed the power...

    wireless only works on battery power not on ac power

    I've got a Compaq V2718WM notebook that the wireless only works when it is running only on battery power. If I plug in the AC line, the wireless cuts out, usually saying "limited or no conectivity". I've had a support thread opened with HP, and they have tried several different solutions...

    Imaged drive in windows, took original drive out, now new drive hangs on login screen

    I tried the bartPE, but when running the regedit under that, it edits the registry for the bartPE environment. It seems that there should be some way to go in and edit the registry of the windows installation from bartPE. I'll do a little more digging and let you guys know what I find.

    Imaged drive in windows, took original drive out, now new drive hangs on login screen

    I agree that I should not get this problem, but I disagree with you in the fact that it is my fault. If Microsoft had coded better, it could figure out where the system files are and continue to boot. The programs that use a hard coded path would also not be affected; because, when they were...
