My rental house is wired with ethernet in every room, problem is, it doesnt work. Ive tried connecting my modem to the wall, and a laptop directly into the switch, nothing. Also tried connecting the modem directly into the switch and then tested the rooms and again nothing. Im also pretty sure i...
I'm currently running this Mobo:
The issue im having is my video card died and I'm going to be getting a 1080 GTX. Im wondering if this mobo is still decent, and if i should upgrade if i want to overclock at all. Chances are I'll...
I probably have a fairly unique problem in that i have multiple formats of music ripped.
Way back when when mp3 first came out i mostly ripped to 128 kbps files, which sound absolutely horrible.
So i have gone through and reripped most of my collection, but not all. I have them seperated by...
Win 8 Restore, what does it do when you select delete all files?
Im selling a laptop and without a windows 8 disk im pretty much stuck restoring it using the built in tools.
If i use the delete all files options when doing so does it do an actual disk wipe? as in a random write of 1's and...
Hello all. I recently bought a cheap(ish) drive that had network capabilities. AKA the Seagate Central.
Im having a lot of trouble streaming HD content on it. I have Blurays ripped to MKV files completely uncompressed and i get a lot of buffering through XBMC on pretty much all of my devices...

I have a Wii and a Wii U in separate rooms. I would like to get some older games on the Virtual Console, But nintendos account system being what it is makes me wonder if it is possible to get VC games on one console and play them on the other? Assuming both systems have said game as part of...
Im looking at getting myself a new Clevo to replace my old one. I saw a chart somewhere suggesting that the Samsung 840 Evo 120 gb drive was the top performing (i cant find the chart again :mad:)

We all know the feeling. You go to your favorite review sources, hoping to find a review for the version of an upcoming game you want to purchase. Only, you find that the site in question published the exact same review for every version of the game released.
What value is there to this...
Normally I wouldnt even bother posting something like this on here, but given a select few of Sony fans who do absolutely nothing but bash the X1 in resolution and performance threads here it is. (I can't link the source yet because work filter blocks the sites)

This is bad news for anyone who uses a console as a media hub. Many people dont, but that ability to stream both movies and music from my PC to the PS3 was one of my favorite features.
Previously i had it working no problems at all, but my ripping on my new computer is doing basically...nothing.
I followed these two guides:
It seems like while its working it should be just...
Personally, I'm not a fan of digital services. Especially when EA with origin can drop support for games meaning you cant re download it at a future date.
Even with Steam everything is managed through Steam, which i ABSOLUTELY hate. I would rather just be able to purchase a...

What is happening, is if i have crossfire enabled when i shut down, so it is again still enabled when i boot up, the frame rates are dropping significantly.
One thing i have noticed is that in my toolbox when i right click the CCC icon for the first time, it only gives the option to open CCC...
So after much speculation, ive decided gorilla glass is either a) overhyped
b) inconsistant in their manufacturing.

Ok so to start off I need to specify that the Laptop must be bought from best buy, so at least available on bestbuy.com
The reason for that is i have an old Macbook Pro thats running an core 2 duo chip, that i can trade in to them for about 550$ credit.
I know that may be undercutting me, but...
