    Router Throughput Question

    I was testing via ethernet, YeOldeStonecat. Fair enough. I've been planning on upgrading to N anyways, so I'll go ahead and push that button. I just really didn't expect my throughput to be that limited, given it's base 100. Oh well. So it goes. Thanks for the feedback, everyone.

    Router Throughput Question

    I bought a modem (Motorola SB6120) to get rid of my leased modem. During the setup process, with the modem hooked up directly to the computer, I ran the speakeasy test and got speeds around 45,000 kb. When I reconnected my trusty wrt54g running dd-wrt (v23sp2), my up stayed the same, but my...

    Video card fan 'reving'

    Well, went through the RMA. I was very impressed with the support staff, and the RMA process itself is thusfar very smooth. Thanks for the help, everyone!

    Video card fan 'reving'

    Striped all the non-essentials out and still a no go - will test in the other machine once it's built.

    Video card fan 'reving'

    That's a real relief. The only good RMA service I've had was Western Digital and Seagate, everything else was crap. If I didn't happen to have the parts handy, I'd have already started barking up that tree. Honestly, my biggest concern was trying to nail down whether it was a PSU issue or a...

    Video card fan 'reving'

    Blew it off with compressed air today at lunch. No luck. Yes, tried that today at lunch too. No luck. That's next on the list. Also, as luck would have it, new parts for a new build for a friend came in today, so I'll actually have a new mobo/psu to try it on. Unfortunately, the...

    Video card fan 'reving'

    The older video card (7600 or something?) does not require the 6pin. The PSU is a PC Power & Cooling S75CF 750W purchased at the same time for the sake of running the card. Since the next question is going to be about the power demands... Core 2 Duo 2.13 (usually at 3.0 but currently at...

    How on earth would I set the fan speed? It won't boot, at least, not in any useful means...

    Video card fan 'reving'

    There's really not much in there - that said, I'll still take it in to work tomorrow and blow it out with some air.

    Video card fan 'reving'

    I bought an EVGA 9800 GT in January of this year - works great, no problems. I move, don't plug in the computer for a while, and now when I do, the video card fan will "rev" like it's trying to get up to speed and can't make it. It goes through this a few times, the motherboard beeps (longer...

    Huge VCore Fluctuations... PSU or Mobo?

    And if it's not the PSU, what else could it be?

    Huge VCore Fluctuations... PSU or Mobo?

    I respect that voltage fluctuations happen, but to that degree? I mean, my other machines vary about .08v, max. Is there a different means of watching the voltages on VCore? I mean, I assumed CPU-Z and speedfan would be fairly reliable. What alternatives are there?

    Dumb, quick question

    Dumb, quick question

    Howdy If I have a server that's dual pIII 933s and dual pIII 500s, is it a 64-bit capable system? That is, could I run a 64 bit version of windows on it? And that said, since they are older systems, would it be better to run Windows Server 03rc2 on them, or would they be better off...

    Deskstar

    It was the 75GXPs... I had one. Even lasted until about a year ago, then came the click of death. I knew what it was as soon as I heard it. Sad day.

    Sleep Mode Problems?

    Howdy I've had my NEC LCD1760NX for nearly 2 years now and I'm starting to have a few problems with it. It seems to suddenly go into sleep mode, rather randomly, and can't be woken up. It has dual inputs, and I've tried it with both inputs from two different systems and the problem is the...

    ipod question - no longer recognized automatically

    When that happened to me it's because a friend took it out without doing the software disconnect deal (it's acting as a hard drive). A factory reset or whatever fixed it, didn't erase music or anything. -Chris

    Logitech/Klipsch Subwoofer to Receiver?

    Also, another big reason I want the receiver is because I'm running several computers, a TV, and maybe an XBox in my room, and I want to run them all through the same speakers. I've thought about just doing it all through a computer, maybe with a beefier sound card, but I really think that it...

    Logitech/Klipsch Subwoofer to Receiver?

    Well, it's more of a question of how the hookup would work - it's not a coax or even RCA. The little control box plugs into the pc, then runs to the sub, with a fairly unique connector, I believe. The sub has an amp and also outputs to the four satellites. I'd provide pictures, but it's at...

    Logitech/Klipsch Subwoofer to Receiver?

    Howdy I've got a set of Logitech's Z560s... love the speakers, but I really want a 5.1 system. So I'd like to get a receiver and use the existing speakers, but I can't connect the subwoofer because of its input. Is there any way to connect the subwoofer to a receiver? Sorry if this sounds...

    Dual Mac Addresses... please?

    Okay, here's the deal. My school does on campus internet by Mac address... ie, they tie a specfic Mac address to a person's id number, and you have to log in the first time you try to get on the internet, blah blah blah. I've got my router... welll, routing... changed the Mac, doing NAT...

    IE Address Bar Incredibly Slow when lacking http://

    Howdy Was working on a computer the other day, and the address bar of IE appeared not to work if I didn't enter an 'http://' before the address. I'm working on the owner's other computer now, and it now has the same issue. Un/Reisntalling IE has no effect on the issue. I've done the...

    DVI Inverting Red and Black?

    I got an NEC 1760-NX off newegg about a month ago, love it. Got the wrong DVI cable, DVI-I instead of DVI-D. So I RMA'd it, and went to pccables.com because newegg was/is sold out of the DVI-D right now. So I got the cable yesterday, hook it up... and the standard, POST black, DOS black...

    Syncmaster 172x or NEC LCD1760NX?

    Hey, I got the 1760NXBK today and LOVE it... just got done playing a couple hours of Deus Ex: Invisible War. ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: Order the DVI-*D* cable... the DVI-*I* cable doesn't fit... found that out the hard way, will be RMA-ing.

    Mouse acting crazy in Fedora

    At the moment it's hooked up to a KVM, and it sometimes happens switching between boxes... sometimes. So, it's not just the screensaver... seems like an X deal, because the reset worked, but, why should the KVM have anything to do with X?

    Mouse acting crazy in Fedora

    Okay, so I'm running Fedora, and sometimes (often) when I come out of a screensaver, the mouse completely freaks out... almost impossible to control, random clicks, and it keeps snapping to the bottom left corner. I figured it may have been something related to Fedora as it's a fresh install...
