    Creative X-Fi problem - hissing and crackling with GPU activity

    I've got a problem with my Creative X-Fi sound card that's driving me insane. I have no idea where to go from here and I can't find any other people with a similar problem, so I thought it was time to make a post. Here's what I'm using right now. Asus P5K-E/WiFi Intel E8500 nVidia 8800 GTX...

    Is it possible to use a remote server as an internet gateway?

    First of all, I should point out that I'm a complete idiot when it comes to networking. Thanks for your patience. A client of mine has a site where some of the content is restricted by IP, so if anyone outside of the US tries to access it they get denied. The problem for me is that because I'm...

    I had a moment of weakness...

    and it resulted in this: 24" iMac with 1GB of RAM (help!), 2.4Ghz model - my first proper Mac. (I had a PPC Mac Mini before this, but gave it to my folks after a week.) So far I love it. The only downside for me is the obvious lack of RAM, but that's something that I'll get fixed as...

    My UK Xbox 360 customer service experience - abysmal.

    About three or four weeks ago my launch Xbox 360 died while playing Guitar Hero 2. It crashed, I rebooted, and I got the red ring of death. I called Microsoft's customer service number and was put through to some guy who asked for my details. First off the serial number, easy enough. Then my...

    Is there anything better than the Samsung 244T for the money?

    I'm on the verge of ordering two Samsung 244T 24" monitors for $690 each, after hours of poring over the threads in this forum. I'm not 100% sure I'm making the right choice though, so I thought I'd post a quick thread to see what the general opinion is. As far as I can see, there are a few...

    Guitar Hero 2 broken guitar fix

    http://www.joystiq.com/2007/04/09/take-360-guitar-hero-flaw-into-your-own-hands/ The site it's linked to is down, but the image pretty much tells you how to fix your guitar. I think I might jump in and mess around with it to see if it works. If anyone else tries this, let me know how it goes.

    Forza 2 and the Logitech G25 wheel

    Has anyone been keeping up with the official line on whether or not there's going to be support for the Logitech G25 wheel in Forza 2? I'm guessing not, but I'm hoping someone has heard something official on it. If not, is the official Xbox 360 wheel the only option? If I'm going to play this...

    PS3 display woes (Dell 2405FPW)

    Ah, the Dell 2405FPW. A perfectly nice 24" display, but somewhat problematic when it comes to trying to get a high quality picture from your Xbox 360. I thought the process of getting a PS3 hooked up to one of these displays would be relatively painless, given that you can easily convert HDMI...

    Bought a 7950GX2, but I can't have HDTV running at a different res to my monitor?

    I recently bought an Asus 7950GX2 - one of the big appeals for me was being able to display HDTV on my Sony Bravia, straight from my PC. However, it's a small HDTV - it only displays 720p max. I connected the component cable from my graphics card to my TV, and headed off to the nVidia control...

    Electronics, need a little help

    A friend of mine asked me to get the following circuit etched out for her (where U3 is a 555 timing chip): The functionality is fairly simple. You flick the switch, and the LED lights up. Current passes through the two wires out on the right hand side, at a certain frequency. Now, I...
