    1080's idle clock too sensitive?

    I'm having an issue with the NVIDIA 1080 FE and its idle clock. Within the modeling software Modo, there's a stutter upon initially rotating, panning, and zooming the 3D viewport in a heavy scene. I found the cause to be the 1080's behavior to instantly idle the GPU core/memory to...

    How do I stop Vista from locking software

    Damn this is getting annoying, and I can hardly find any topics on the internet. Vista has a new feature where it locks you out of software, even graying out the application, and if you click, it says it's not responding. Thing is, the program is working perfectly fine. It keeps jumping the...

    Crazy, which of these 2 changes caused Vista to need Re-Activation?

    Change 1: Messing/Changing the memory? Change 2: Updating the bios? I just recently jumped on the cheap ram deals to upgrade my 2gigs to 4gigs. But I got a picky motherboard and only had nothing but issues getting more than two sticks to run. For a week I ran on the 2 new sticks I bought since...

    Worlds worst MOBO for RAM,

    What the heck is with the GA-965p-DS3!!!!!!! It's so damn pickey, even with ram listed on their support site, even after the ram has already worked with it. Unless I'm just doing things wrong. I've been using Corsair 2x 1gig sticks for a year. But seeing all these deals for 2gb pairs, and...

    Dual background method messed up in Vista

    With a dual monitor setup you have always been able to get a background for each by doing one big image with both backgrounds side by side. Then with tile it causes the image to be set full size on the first screen and the right side jumps to the 2nd monitor to give it it's background. Requires...
