    Noobish HT link question.

    There seems to be some grey area between what the actual HT link speed is for a cpu. By auto settings my HT link is 2.0 ghz. HT 3.0 on AM3 chips is supposed to support 2.6 ghz HT link. The highest I can get it is 2.4 ghz at the default 1.20 HT link voltage. I tried 2.6 at 1.30 volts...

    Asus 23.6

    Well my viewsonic vp finally died :( Spent 2 days trying to get it to come back on but I had to give up on it because I needed to continue with my work. I opted for the Asus 1080p Widescreen as my brother got the samsung version. I'm so impressed with this leap in resolution that I've gone...

    Finally fixed my Viewsonic VP2030b

    I've had an issue over time where the monitor would no longer wake from sleep. The monitor would turn off even if I used power scheme - never turn off. Eventually the screen stopped coming on altogether. Turns out there is a factory reset for viewsonics that is not in the manual. Hold...

    Windows Mobile 5.0 and Outlook Web Access

    I can not for the life of me find a scope of support or any documentation saying whether or not a PDA is supposed to be able to log in to outlook web access to view an exchange account. It can be done, and has worked, but not so much on any windows mobile 5.0 pdas. I was wondering if any of...

    Why SLI won't work with my Mobo...

    I'm having a major problem getting SLI enabled on my computer. When I install new drivers, Windows prompts me to enable SLI in a dialogue box, but when I go to the 6800 gt tab, the computer restarts. Everything worked fine until I went to this mobo, so I know the video cards work and that I have...

    SLI 6800 gt Crashing Problems

    Ok, here's the deal: I just recently got an ASUS SLI32 motherboard with 2 6800gt's on it. Everything ran fine BEFORE I got this board (I had the SLI-Deluxe). After the mobo switch and subsequent format, I was able to install everything to current (drivers) but when I go to Display->Advanced...

    weird video playback issue

    I have a BFG 6800GT. When I play a video, the gama is way too high, and the colors are off. While the video is playing, I can go to display properties, settings and when I click advanced, the video fixes itself as soon as the nvidia controls load up. What gives? :confused: The videos...

    Gold Duping in WoW It seems as though WoW has been exploited by using instances to duplicate gold. :( It would seem that many lvl 30s are exploiting a problem with Maraudon to dupe items and gold. People are able to carry massive ammounts of...

    A8N deluxe Prob/Solution

    Hey guys just ran into a nice fix, and I thought sharing this may help others. I've been having random lockups with cs source. If it was fullscreen it would lock my entire machine, if it was in window it would only crash the game. Brothers In Arms wouldn't alt-tab, and after exiting the...

    Other SLI uses.

    Im a computer noob, but with 2 video adapters in SLI, what is keeping an sli system from letting you run 2 games at once. For example, I currently alt-tab from WoW to CS:Source. I would like to have WoW on my tv and CS on my monitor.

    Just upgraded from nforce2, now I need good sound

    I upgraded to the A8N, and, the spdif doesnt output 5.1, and analoge 5.1 sounds like crap. I have invested in a 5.1 klipsch promedia system with the preamp. I know asking for DICE capability is too much, but I i am willing to sacrifice the 5.1 for excellent fidelity. What soundcard should I...

    Which cpu?

    In two weeks I'll be upgrading to an A64. I currently have a 3200+ barton. I'm for sure with the 2 6800GT's and A8N, but what I'm not sure of is the cpu. Can I get a good OC out of the 3000+, or will I need to get a 3500+ winchester to oc?

    Overdrive max

    Well, the cats are saying the temp is low, and the overdrive guage is maxed, but only showing its clocked at 418, just 7 mhz over stock. IS that all it will go, that seems a bit low for boasting overclock potential on xt cards.
