    Beginner in a new house

    I moved into a new house 2 weeks ago which has speakers in several rooms on the main floor as well as outside on the deck. In the office room, there is an input terminal on the wall for basic speaker wire. One pos/neg set feeds the indoor speakers and the other feeds the deck; there are volume...

    Custom cables

    Does anyone have experience with ordering custom cables? We have some old equipment in the lab that would require something to the tune of a round 9-pin to a flat 25-pin connection. My boss has the specifics but I mentioned I would see if I could dig up anything. Ordering the specific cable...

    Your LAN secrets

    With both Quakecon and MillionManLAN kicking off tomorrow, I figured several of you are packing for 4 days of games and technology. I want to know if you have any favorite tips or tricks that only LAN vets might know. What are you bringing, beside the obvious, that will make your LAN...

    MillionManLAN 11 - Aug. 2-5 Same weekend as Quakecon but I think the two are rather different experiences. They're still collecting feedback on official tournaments and some attendees are planning to host various side-tournaments. CS:GO and League of Legends seem to be the hot topics; I know...

    2K bringing back X-Com Exciting news, but deep down I'm losing hope that this will be a game that excites me more and more as the release date approaches. "FPS" is one reason. Granted, that's all I really play these days and the genre that I enjoy the most, but to me...

    DDR2 - Add on or replace?

    Right now I'm using this Corsair 2x1GB kit of DDR2 1066. I purchased it near the end of '08 as part of a new build. I'm looking to add more, but I'm afraid that I'll have problems by trying to add a 2x2GB kit into the mix to get a total of 6GB. If this won't work and I have to replace my...

    Novice question - screws

    Putting together a PC for my mother-in-law from some leftovers of my last build. Just curious if leaving out screws from a motherboard installation might cause a short circuit. I have 6 out of 9 screws installed since I can't seem to find the other 3 at the moment, and the system won't boot...

    New Case Decision

    Based on my searching so far, I've narrowed it down to these two: Silverstone Kublai Cooler Master 690 Both are at the same price at the moment, though the Silverstone requires sending in for a mail-in-rebate. I like the SS due to it's lighter weight (17.7<21.6) and overall smaller...

    Recent upgrade seems sluggish

    I recently replaced my AMD 3500+, Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe, and 4x512MB Corsair XMS with an Intel E8400, Gigabyte EP45-UD3R, and 2x1GB Corsair Dominator 1066. I've done some tweaking in the bios, it was originally set to 8.5x266 for the E8400 and with the RAM running at DDR2 800 speeds. I now...

    My first Gigabyte board

    Getting ready to upgrade my system and reinstall XP but I'm not sure what I need to be able to use my SATA hard drive. On the two Asus boards I've had in the past, there was a utility to make a floppy disk with the SATA drivers so that when XP was starting to reinstall I could manually...

    Copyright infringement?

    I got this from Google Video today about a mini UT2k4 video I made 2 years ago. I really couldn't care less since it's basiclly ancient history by now but, just for future reference, is there something I did wrong with this clip? The only...

    Does this genre exist?

    FPTBS: First-Person Turn-Based Strategy I've been re-reading rumors and what not that have been floating around about the XCom series since the new XCom package popped up on Steam. There's the rumor that Ken Levine is working on a new XCom game but that's pure speculation. It saddens me...

    Wii Disc Read Problem

    I don't know if it's coincidence or not but this just happened today when I went to play a different game after renting LEGO Indiana Jones. It seems like all third-party games will not load. I'll insert the disc, the disc channel shows the game properly, I click on the disc channel and click...

    Upgrading my s939 CPU

    I currently own a Winchester 3500+ that I bought about 3 years ago. With a baby on the way, I can't upgrade much more than my CPU at the moment. I'm trying to decide on an X2 4400 or 4600 since I think any 4800 out there is probably out of my price range. I was checking out this page on...

    Bad Router Signal

    I've owned a Dlink DI-524 for about 2 yrs and didn't have any problems with it. I haven't used it for about a year and, after purchasing a Wii, I put it back into the mix so I could get my buddy list going. Router seems to be working fine other than the fact that it's broadcast radius is now...

    Need an outside opinion

    A friend of mine called me with an issue he's having with Supreme Commander sporadically freezing during gameplay. Everything goes back to normal after about 30 - 60 secs but that's quite a long 'freeze' I asked him how many processes he has running in the background and he said that it showed...

    Odd USB Keyboard Issue

    Just recently did a few upgrades (motherboard, power supply, video card) and I'm having a persistent issue with my USB keyboard. Basically anytime I restart the computer my keyboard is not detected once XP loads. I can enter the BIOS fine but past that, the only way to get the keyboard to work...
