    Windows Experience Index fails after Bulldozer hotfix

    As the title states, I ran the WEI on a clean install of W7 with an 8120 and it ran fine. I installed the two hotfixes from Microsoft for the FX cpus and now at the end it says the WEI could not finish because of a driver or problem, etc. The only thing that's changed has been the installation...

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    So I know this has been talked about before but is it a wise idea to get a step up/down transformer? Like a 100w 110-220V one? My brick included with the Shimian gets warm which is fine but I'm a little nervous about long term use.

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    I ordered my QH270-lite from dcsamsungmall late Sunday afternoon. He shipped it on Monday and it arrived in San Diego yesterday at noon via FedEx. I'm impressed! For those who were asking, FedEx did estimate that it would arrive here on Thursday which seemed kind of late compared to what...

    Achieva Shimian QH270| $400 IPS 2560x1440 Korean Monitor

    Well, after reading through most of these posts here and over on OCN, I'm really tempted to get one of these as I've been wanting a bigger monitor for a while(up from 24" 1200p which seems too small now) at 1440p but either didn't care for the AG coatings or have something compatible with the...

    Rattle sound in psu

    I tried that along with tilting it every direction and sometimes it sounds like the "object" becomes stuck on something but then it moves around after some more tilting.

    Rattle sound in psu

    Hello everyone, just got back from QuakeCon on Sunday and this was the first time I've traveled with my pc(Thermaltake Lanbox Lite). Anyway, after I got home I noticed that when I took my computer out of a bag I heard a sound like a screw slide to the end of the case. When I opened the case...

    Gamer loving my new Asus 26" VK266H

    I've been doing the same thing kendog although I've had really lousy luck lately. My LG I bought last year has a few stuck pixels but they weren't noticeable, the first Gateway 2401 I bought had a bunch, and the current one I have has one tiny one but it still bugs the heck out of me and along...

    NEC 2490WUXi-BK vs 2490WUXi-BK-SV vs 2690WUXi-BK

    Which one out of those 3 would you pick and what exactly is different about the 2490WUXi-BK-SV compared to the 2490WUXi-BK? Also, where would be the best place to get one of these? Newegg is out because of their finicky dead pixel requirement. Thanks. Quick background info, had the LG...

    Best glossy 24" LCD?

    I have the Gateway FHD2401 and I like it(except for 1 dead pixel and some color problems). I can control the light in the room its in so glare isn't a problem.

    Need help - Monitor just died

    I am in a similar situation as well since my trusty LG had problems and I sent it back. I hated the BenQ V2400W I bought as a replacement so I returned that and I've now been without a monitor for 3 weeks or so. I normally would've dismissed any 22" monitors since they tend to use TN panels like...

    BenQ V2400W In Depth Review

    Argh, I just got mine today and I'm not happy. The monitor had some odd marks on the screen that I finally managed to get off, the screen is clearly tilted to the left(something I thought others might be exaggerating about), and I'm just not impressed with the color. I'll fiddle around with it...

    BenQ V2400W or Dell 2408? I've read and read -- help tip me one way or another.

    I just tried it and it still works. I've recently had problems with my LG(love it but still getting a full refund) so I need a new monitor and I'm thinking the V2400W might be the best bet right now.

    LG L246W

    Well, I reinstalled windows and that fixed my problem where windows would not go into screen saver or power save mode. Although now a new problem has popped up yesterday. Now, when I move the mouse to wake out of power save mode, the light turns blue but the screen is still black and is not lit...

    LG L246W

    I'm guessing this a problem with windows, but I hope someone can help here. I bought the LG back in October 07 and its been problem free up until about 2 days ago. Windows does not want to go into screen saver mode although occasionally it does for about 5 minutes before it goes back to desktop...

    No signal from 9600GT

    I've had my 9600GT for about 3 weeks now and its been great except today the monitor is not receiving a signal. I replugged in the cables and reseated the card but still nothing. My hdd sounds like its booting into the OS as it should and there aren't any new strange beeps from the mobo. Any...

    X1900XT problems after 8.3 drivers

    Well, if I set the fan to 100% in Riva Tuner it doesn't freeze(yet, I didn't test it that long) anymore but since its still within warranty I guess I'll send it back. I've never had to return anything to Sapphire before so according to their website I would need to send it back to Newegg first...

    X1900XT problems after 8.3 drivers

    Hello everyone, hopefully someone can help with this as it is driving me crazy. Last night, updated to the 8.3 CCC and went to bed.

    Bios problem, please help!

    Got it fixed. Someone directed me to the Asus forums. Apparently the latest bios has a problem with the E6600 where it sets the multiplier down to 8. Manually setting it back up to 9 solved the problem.

    Bios problem, please help!

    I tried the version on the motherboard resource cd, but it said that it was an older version than the current. I have also tried installing the network drivers after a windows update but it usually doesn't work. Its weird because I can usually get it working if I reset the bios setting back to...

    Bios problem, please help!

    For some reason whenever I do a windows update and restart my computer, windows(and linux) cannot see my network adapters on the motherboard(see sig). Anyway, usually restarting it again will fix but sometimes not. Today, I had this happen again so I decided to update the bios from 1305 to...

    24" LCD recommendation, some questions and help.

    I got my LG in late October and I love it too. After coming from an old Dell 19" LCD the LG is far superior. I did look into the Benq but decided to go with the LG.

    24" - Going in circles. Help

    I was going to ask about scaling. I bought the LG about a month ago and I absolutely love it but for some games my gpu can't handle it(no surprise, its run games better than I thought it would at that res). Anyway, I tried to change the scaling in CCC but it didn't work. I had heard people say...

    ATI Radeon HD 3800 Series @ [H]

    Wow, I'm kinda torn on what to buy as well. I was pretty much set on buying an 8800GT but I don't know now. The 3870 does look kinda tempting now especially since I could potentially grab another one for crossfire.

    Gaming LCD 24"+ Help me decide

I love having the extra space for apps and the new res has even inspired me to go back to playing some games I haven't played in a while like Oblivion. I also haven't had any...
