    New drive size problem

    Hi, I got a 4GB WD HDD and was initializing it (GPT) when the USB connection cut. It was showing the correct size before but now shows less then half. Is there a way to fix this? I've done the Googling and tried switching to MBR then back to GPT but no luck. Regards, Tar

    Request for very simple script.

    Thanks! Using PowerShell I tried creating the script and it opened WinAmp the first time but did not the 2nd as the window name changes with every song. So I tried the following: $wshell = New-Object -ComObject wscript.shell; $wshell.AppActivate('* Winamp *') Sleep 1 $wshell.SendKeys('c') But...

    Request for very simple script.

    Thank for the reply! I guess I would like to use something free? Would I need to install something? Honestly I thought I would just need to enter some text into notepad and save it as a bat file? Or do you mean the language that I would be using in notepad?

    Request for very simple script.

    Hi, Sorry to bother you with this but I know very little about scripting. I'm looking for a file that I could run that would select a already running WinAmp and press 'c' (the pause button). I'm running Windows 10 Pro. I've been trying to look up on how to do this but cant put it together in my...

    2x 780's upgrade to one 1060?

    Hello, I currently have 2 780's SLI 3GB each on a Intel Core i7 4770K OC'ed to 4.3/4 I think. If I get rid of the 2 780's and replace it with one "Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 Mini ITX OC 6GB GDDR5 (GV-N1060IXOC-6GD)", would the performance be equal or greater? Regards, Tar.

    Vintage - Backup questions.

    Hello, I have some questions about backing up my old software/games. First are the floppy's. I know that some 80's floppy's had DRM but the one's I have should all be from the 90's with no DRM. Mix of OS's, software and games. To back these up, can I simply copy the files to a folder or do I...

    Vintage Forum?

    Hello, It's been about 20 years that [H]ardOCP has been helping me put systems together. I remember I discovered this site a few months after I discovered Voodoo Extreme (RIP) when looking to do my first build (somewhere around 98). As things go with age, I'm in the process of building what my...

    850w or 1200w for new system?

    I have not had the time to do much gaming yet but it held up for all stress testing with aida64 and 3dmark (was on special on steam:). I'm running the cpu at 44 with 1.232v (the bloody thing will not touch 45 at any v, 2 of the cores jump to over 90c when I do)
