    My Lenovo S10-2 won't boot after a 2GB RAM upgrade...

    Hey guys, I have a new Lenovo S10-2 (love it, by the way!) As most people do, I thought I'd upgrade the RAM to 2GB to get a little more versatility from the machine. Bought a G-Skill 2GB PC2-6400 (DDR2-533) Sodimm and went to install it. Install is really easy, but once I got the new...

    Need a TV Tuner, have a few ideas. Please help!

    Hi guys, I'm in the market for a TV Tuner card (finally). I have a 24" widescreen monitor connected to my GTX 260. I was looking at the Hauppauge HVR-1800 and the HVR-1600. I dual-boot Ubuntu 8.10 and Vista Home Premium 32 bit (75+% of my time is spent in Vista). The HVR-1800 does not...

    Vista Home Premium 32bit w/ 4GB: PAE or upgrade to x64?

    Ok, the title is sort of self-explanatory. I jumped on 2x1GB of DDR2 for $31.99 from newegg and now I have 4GB of RAM total. I have a C2D E6600, GTX260, etc... nothing that would have issues with a 64-bit OS. Vista Home Premium 32 bit is only picking up 3006 MB of RAM (My GTX260 is...

    Flashing an 8800GTX

    So, I have a quick question about BIOSes on the 8800GTX. I currently have a BFG 8800GTX OC2. I'm trying to purchase another 8800GTX, although odds are it won't be an OC2, and it might not even be a BFG. I want OC2 speeds, and most cards should do OC2 speeds without too much difficulty. Is...

    Dell 2407WFP Issue with Power Button

    Hey guys, I'm just checking to see if anyone else has this problem: I got my Dell 2407WFP last May, and I absolutely love it. However, I have been noticing over time that the power button got looser and less responsive, sometimes taking me quite a few tries to get it turned on. This week, it...

    Trouble Remaining Logged In

    First off, this MAY be a machine specific problem, but it's happened frequently in the last 2.5 hours, so here goes: I am on a "guest" computer (i.e. not mine), so when I log in to the [H], I do not check the "Remember Me" box. As a result, I'm supposed to stay logged in for that entire...

    Half Life 2: Episode Three?

    Hopefully I didn't make anyone freak out, thinking I had definitive information about this game. I just got done playing through all the portions of the Orange Box (I never played HL2 before, I wasn't old enough to buy M rated games when it came out), and I absolutely fell in love with Half...

    Does G.Skill's reputation continue to be good for laptop memory?

    I'm looking to buy 2GB of DDR2 for my Dell laptop, which came with Vista and 1GB. I feel like the extra performance that 2GB would offer is necessary to run Vista and the games I like to play. I looked on Newegg, and, of course, I'm trying to save money wherever possible, but I am very...

    Hi, I'm addicted to Apple-crack, too.

    Hey guys, I just got my new 20GB Photo Ipod, and I must say that I'm completely hooked. I transfered my 1.5 GB of music immediately, and I bought an iTrip too. The iTrip works great, my only complaint is that I can't see the elapsed time/track # on the CD player, but glancing at the iPod...

    2 GB of memory feasible and easy?

    Hi, I was playing the BF2 demo and was getting horrible, horrible lag and stuttering. I have 1 GB of memory running at 225mhz in dual channel, and I'm looking at buying another 1GB set, so I'll have 4x512. Will I still be able to run them at, say 3-3-3-7 1T?

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone else has the PEP1G3200LLK RAM from Patriot or PDP as they might be known (NOT the +XBLK stuff, that's known TCCD). I heard that it could be some kind of Mosel Vitec 5ns chips, or CH-5, or TCC5 chips. I was wondering if someone had these and knew what kind of chips...

    Very Disappointed with Thermaltake Products

    Hi all, nothing new I know, but I just thought I'd relate the relative performance of my Thermaltake product. I bought, last Christmas, a Thermaltake Pipe101 and a 92mm Silent Cat fan to accompany it for my new 3.2 E. I read the reviews on Newegg, and supposedly it offered very good performance...

I'm considering going with one of the Zalman 7700 series, with the 120 MM fan. I was wondering if the AlCu is good enough, or if the increased...

    RAM: Patriot or OCZ?

    I'm looking for a Gig of high performance memory for Christmas, so I can run my 3.2 E at "higher than normal clock speeds" *wink, wink*. I currenly have some OCZ PC3500 selected for like $209.

    At the bottom of everyone's user name/location/join date section in every post, there is a little circle, sometimes colored red, yellow, and maybe green (D#$% colorblindness!). Are those an indication of the posters' "warning level", or what? Thanks! :)
