    INPUT packet died: from android television

    Moderately sure is a common multicast range. Could potentially be a DLNA announce/peering broadcast request.

    Once again I turn to my [H] family for help (Excel 2016)

    Weird things can happen when you migrate a profile between Windows versions. If you have access to create a new local user, do that and see if the problem persists. If it doesn't, then you may need to clean any stored settings for Excel out of HKCU/appdata.

    Issued an unintended command

    Run as a non-admin in that context? Probably not. The command you ran only removes hidden, read only, and system flags from files and directories under your user's folder. The majority of the stuff that would cause issues will be owned by Trusted Installer and you're not going to affect it from...

    Does the 570 chipset fan make noise?

    AMD's fault on this one since they designed X570 in-house, and the consensus seems to be that it won't temperature throttle in some edge-cases. ASMedia is doing the next, so who knows if it'll be necessary for that one.

    Does the 570 chipset fan make noise?

    X570 Aorus Elite, I set the fan curve to silent and as far as I can tell it doesn't even spin. Temps never seem to get to above mid-high 50s c on the chipset, and the danger zone for those is 90-100 c I believe. I've heard that it's there since there's no thermal throttling support in the...

    Ryzen 5 2600 high idle temps and temp spikes

    I'm getting the same minimum clocks on a 2600x, lowest it goes is around ~2200 with the power plan minimum set to 5%. I always assumed it was normal. I also got around the same temps in a Fractal Define R3 with the stock cooler. Games were around ~75 c. 100% utilization via maxed out thread...

    Need help with finding "in stock" online x570 board

    Have you looked at Load the parts you want into a saved list and then buy when you see the price you want at a good retailer, I think you can get email notifications as well.

    Quick PowerShell Help

    Yep, use the Powershell ISE that's included in Windows, put the commands on separate lines and save as a PS1. Actually, just use the ISE for everything. Has a ton of help features and cmdlet autocomplete etc built in.

    Help Entering the offset for voltage on the AMD 3600 - with BIOS image

    That's the one. Strange behavior in the BIOS, my Gigabyte board provided a pop-out menu to select the Vcore option and the offset.

    Set the Vcore to normal from auto, that should expose the offset setting.

    Which X570 to buy ~$200?

    I recently updated as well and went with the X570 Aorus Elite. Haven't had any issues that weren't my own doing (tuning Ram timings, etc) with the latest BIOS (F12j). From what I have seen, outside of the normal pockets of defective devices, as long as you do Ram from the QVL (either Gigabyte or...

    GTX 970 incompatible with Win10?

    No problems with a 970 on Windows 10 here. Could be driver version related? Other thing could be the BIOS on the card if it's detecting something to do with UEFI support. Maybe check and update that if available?

    Greenmangaming Winter Sale has started.

    I'm guessing they are just clearing out unsold inventory on unpopular titles, I got "CORPORATE LIFESTYLE SIMULATOR" as a free gift when I grabbed Dishonored: Definitive. However they can get rid of them I guess, there's probably a 1% mix in of something good to generate buzz. I preordered RE7 a...

    MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries Announced

    I'm just coming back to MWO after almost 2 years, dropped it because it just didn't seem to be going anywhere. The game is pretty solid now. I was wondering what had changed, because IGP/PGI didn't seem to be able to do anything right when I left.

    Help me find the video scaler converter thread please

    The current high-water mark is a xrgb-mini "Framemeister", which is a .jp product that can be imported. The OSSC is an open source project set to be the new darling, but isn't generally available yet. It's coming soon, and can be bought assembled or in kit form if you have the skills to...

    Recommendation for Software for simple Video Compilaton

    Sorry for your loss. I've seen people do this sort of thing in Windows Movie Maker and get good results. It's also about as easy a program for that kinda stuff as there is. Only sticking point may be file format support for inputting your source video, but it could be worth a try. If you hit...

    What looks like a visualization on the left hand side is the album art. The visualization on the top bar is one of the built in ones. It's ColumnsUI based, so this is probably the album list.

    WDS 2012 R2 and slow multicast speeds.

    What's the usage? WDS? You're hitting speeds consistent with what I would expect from multicast. There's lots of factors involved, including the clients on the other end. Certain brands of NICs just seem slower from our testing. Fastest I have ever seen it go in our lab is around 320mbs...

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    I got sick of downloading the full 1.02 -> * patches from GOG, so I just installed the Galaxy client. I don't think you need to run it to actually play the game (a la steam), it's just a distribution platform (haven't played since I installed it, so I can't confirm that). Anyway, the last patch...

    Renaming a Domain

    Seems like a complicated fix to a simple problem. I don't see an issue with doing that, as I can't think of any AD DS related service that would be hitting port 80 (wouldn't want AD related services resolving the domain to somewhere it wasn't). For us, we just created the record for www in...

    Renaming a Domain

    Actually, the best practice regarding that kind of stuff is changing to what you have (called "Split-Brain" DNS if you want to google). Largely due to internal infrastructure extending beyond company borders (federation between inside and cloud services, etc). The way we do it is to maintain...

    any IT guys here? Are you upgrading to Win 10?

    We're still in the process of migrating to Win7, with some Win8 going out on the touch screen hardware for the VIPs/execs. I have Win10 RTM installed in a VM, not seeing much that I would risk the upgrade on my current Win8 (need hyper-v) workstation for. I can see it replacing Win8 in our...

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    Same, "The Dead Have No Defense" quest for me. Not that it really matters, it's a random bandit squash with the twist of reading a note and opening a chest in the immediate area. I think I've only had around 2-3 CTDs as well, which isn't much considering the amount of time I have played.

    GeForce Game Ready Driver for Grand Theft Auto V

    Normally couldn't hurt, but there is always a chance for new issues and regressions. It's branded as the "GTAV" driver but there are other changes outside of profile support stuff for it. Just probably not enough to warrant a new release without the need to tout official support for a new AAA...

    Quality BDR Burner?

    I was looking into getting one as well, from what I have found it seems like the best thought of current drive for burn quality, etc is the Pioneer BDR-208. However that drive was replaced by the BDR-209, which as far as I can tell is pretty much just as good if you can't find stock on the 208...

    UEFI boot? Or just boot classic?

    If you're using Windows 8 upgrade media downloaded from MS there were issues with early versions of the media that caused it to always install as legacy. MAY affect earlier ISOs/CD/etc as well. I ran into that installing from USB my last reinstall. Had to redownload the media using their...

    Gigabyte Z77 Mobo Sata ports not working, help

    Odds are if you can't see the controller in bios its dead. To confirm this was the separate Marvel controller information section right? The default ATA information page only shows the status for the intel ports. If you want to try a newer bios I ran 15q for about a year, and have been using...

    Gigabyte Z77 Mobo Sata ports not working, help

    The higher ports on the board are provided using an additional controller outside of the intel chipset, I think its a marvell controller. There's a separate option to enable/disable this controller in the bios, if the ports in question are part of that I'd reset the board to factory and then...

    How telecommuting killed the snow day

    Really? I'm in Atlantic Canada and have had 2-3 this winter so far. Depends on where you are located I guess. Main factor is the roads, once the RCMP tells everyone to get off them everything closes.

    What gaming video card lasted you the longest ?

    I've been running a 8800GTS (G92) since they were launched. It was alright for anything I wanted to play up until I upgraded to a 1080p monitor (I'm behind the times), earlier this year. Now, not so much. Curious to see what the longevity of the 970 I ordered a couple days ago will be. It's got...

    So what's your nostalgia game?

    I've got lots of fond memories of a bunch of the (s)nes/genesis area games, but Phantasy Star 4 is probably the most nostalgic. I think I've played it through at least once every 5 years since it's release.

    Your most durable power supply.

Still in use in my current build (Ivy Bridge 3770 based), and has been rock soild since day one. Looking at upgrading now since I will need 8+6 for a G1...

    Windows 7 Drive Letter Clash

    Probably has something to do with USB/HDD devices being mounted and assigned per-machine, where network drives are per-user. Since the profiles used for each are independent, the mount point information isn't really shared the way it should be for removable drives. We use something like...
