    GTX780m sager NP8258 driver issues

    If you mean reinstall the OS from scratch- thats part of the problem - the install media no longer exists and sager, intel nor nvidia have the needed drivers. if you mean reinstall OEM drivers, its been done several times both with and without a cleanup having been done first. the outcome is...

    GTX780m sager NP8258 driver issues

    I am trying to fix this sager that was upgraded to retail win10 from the original win8 - the video card for this uses both the intel (for low power stuff) and the nvidea 780 (for anything not low powered). Currently though im running into a super weird problem: when trying to open the nvida...

    Assassin's Creed Unity Review Bombed on Steam

    Steam introduces feature to combat Borderlands review bombings, Gearbox CEO responds to situation

    this. very much this. This is why i stopped buying consoles and just skipping titles that were console exclusives. why would i not carry that same attitude forward when you forcibly prevent me from using a client of my choice on an otherwise supported platform?

    Safe using desktop outdoors in fog and salty air?

    maybe put the computer as close as possible to the garage but inside- run USB and video cables to wherever you want the monitor keyboard and mouse at, use ultra cheap keyboards mice and monitors that are considered throwaways when they do bork out (and they will). its the cheapest way to do what...
