    First Laptop - help?

    I looked at them at first, but I just can't get used to that screen. I borrowed a friend's Aspire One for a week and was not a fan of that screen. I'll have the desktop, however it'll be at home, so I'd like another computer in my apartment and for class. Didn't clarify.

    First Laptop - help?

    My parents and grandparents graciously offered me a laptop as a grad present, and I have $600 to work with here. (I can use more, but it;s OOP) What am I looking for? Uses: Firefox. MS Word. AIM. WMP. uTorrent. That's all I'd use it for. I still have a desktop for when I move...

    Plexi Questions...

    Okay, so for a mod I'm working on, I plan to use painted plexi and to etch my school logo into it. This will be on the bottom of my case, and I was thinking of etching the logo into the black paint, so it will have a haze on it when I have it backlit. But I was wondering, should I etch the...

    Building a PC For a Friend...

    Thanks for the heads up on the PSU, I'll look for another route. And the CPU won't be updated soon. He generally buys a new PC every 2-3 years, and doesn't upgrade in that period. (Except for maybe drives, and graphics) For the video, I'm starting to lean more towards the 9600GT...

    No Images In Browsers?

    Whelp, I'm attempting to fix my grandfather's PC at the moment, and I'm at a loss. The internet won't load images. IE6 or Firefox, every page has a white background and any other images are white as well. If I navigate to the URL of an image, it will load, but not on a page. By no means am I a...

    8800GT Release?

    Today, I thought. :D

    Forget Crysis! GH3 FTW!!!!

    I don't see how it's a 'premium' price for a controller; it costs just as much as any other wireless controller for a console. (Give or take a few bucks) And as far as the game goes, waiting to pick it up when it drops for the PC. :D

    crysis demo not available till 27th

    It's a demo release date. For a demo, that noone has to pay for. I see no problem with them being a day late, maybe they're prepping the servers for more traffic, to avoid the catastrophe that the CoD4 demo was on Yahoo. If some of the downloaders get it today, that means less rush for it...

    I don't know about yours, but this is how my version works. Click the arrow next to customize to open the little menu. From there, the first thing on the right has the fan control options.

    toggle switch for cold cathode install

    I'm actually planning to do the same thing to my CM5. I'll be using Rocker switches for the front panel, to be connected to an internal CCFL kit. I don't know about yours, but my CCFL kit comes with a switch that gets tied into the back panel PCI Bracket. All I'd have to do is take the...

    UT3 demo by tomorrow...10/12

    Me too. =/ Except I'm on 32bit, I've tried downloading three times from three different sources. I first get a "1603" error from the installshield application, then after that, as it starts to install, I get a 1335 error, something about a corrupt CAB file.

    Serious overclocking issues

    My e4300 refuses to boot at anywhere between 225-260Mhz. I honestly have no idea why, but I run it at 340, and it boots fine there. =/ OP, make sure 'spread spectrum' is disabled in the BIOS if you have the option. I didn't at first, and I couldn't get my chip to boot at an OC.

    cheating online. 360 live vs. pc

    In all my time playing PC games, I've seen a total of ten hackers at most. Maybe 3 in BF2, and 5 or so in CS:S. And I've played with/against thousands of people that were clean - so I would say that in fact, there are more cheaters than clean players.
