    Western Digital WD2500ks Questions

    1. All 6 of my WD2500KS have black tops, but I just put a newer one into a customers PC, and it was silver. 2. They can get very loud on intensive seeks. Rubber grommets should help quite a bit in this area. 3. The SecureConnect doesn't provide power, it just locks all the components...

    Whats a good TV Tuner for a notebook?

    My personal recommendation would be fore the AverMedia UltraTV USB 300. Your options are quite limited when dealing with USB TV receivers, unfortunately. Hauppage also makes a couple of USB ones, but they're not spectacular by any definition.

    I am in a unique situation... Please Read.

    S-Video will only allow you to display a maximum resolution of 1024x768 (widescreen 1024x576 interlaced). Basically, what you need is a TV capable of displaying resolutions higher than 1024x768. Most new LCDs and Plasma TVs these days will offer a maximum resolution of at least 720p (1280x720...

    Run Starcraft in 800px on Widescreen monitor?

    First of all, Starcraft's native resolution is 640x480, not 800x600. Secondly, because it doesn't support any additional resolutions whatsoever, defining a custom resolution via registry/.ini/shortcut is impossible. The resolution is an integral part of the game coding, and can therefore only be...

    No more "shortchanged" 20GB PS3

    Added to this, "HD" also includes the 720p resolution, which I am well aware (working in high-end home theatre) is the more common of the HD resolutions supported by televisions sold today. This is a resolution considerably lower than the 1080p that the PS3 is apparently supporting.

    Is this awesome configuration possible?

    Should be possible. Completely different operating systems for completely different functions makes the problem all that much easier to solve. In XP64, disable the 7900 in device manager. In XP32, disable the Quadro in device manager. If the card is disabled, the nVidia drivers shouldn't detect...

    Best looking game to date

    I'd probably have to say HL2 with the high-texture pack. It wasn't technologically advanced, or particularly impressive (graphically speaking), but it was artistically breathtaking. Everything in that engine

    Unable to change permissions on hard drive

    So TakeOwn doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for, according to this info. Edit : Seems that I just need to be able to reset the SIDs on the drive to default (should be Administrators), and work from there. Anyway to do this? Another idea was to boot a Live Linux CD and see if it ignores...

    Unable to change permissions on hard drive

    You can't access ownership properties at all when using simple file sharing, so the answer is yes.

    Unable to change permissions on hard drive

    Yep, partition is NTFS. Following these steps - Problem is, the option to take ownership of child objects isn't visible (so I'm assuming it's not available), and selecting the ownership and clicking "Apply" or "OK" doesn't change anything. There is no current owner listed in the respective...

    Ants in WoW

    Very true. It's much more prevalent on nVidia cards, but changing to an ATi card is most definitely NOT going to fix the problem. Change "Image settings" in the nVidia control panel to "High Quality", and set "LOD Bias Clamp" to "0".

    CS:S strafing

    Maybe you need to increase the air control? I think the command is "sv_air_control (number between 1 and 800)". Don't quote me on that, though, it's been a while since I did the CSS thing.

    keyboard problem or mobo problem?

    What Catalyst version are you running? It sounds like a heat issue, though, so you could try downclocking the card, see if that fixes it up. Do you get the same lockup issues in DOS?
