    Klipsch Promedia 2.1 Issues.

    I bought these speakers about 5 years ago and it looks like I've finally joined the issues club. :p My speakers started having a problem where the sound was low and garbled and turning up the volume did not increase the sound. It was intermittent. Turning the system on and off a couple times or...

    GTX 670 HDMI Output Issue.

    Having a weird issue. My 670 loses my TV that's hooked up via HDMI when the TV is shut off. When I turn the TV back on, it will not display anything until I unplug the HDMI cable and then plug it back in again. After I do that, the card recognizes the TV just fine and retains the resolution and...

My company is looking for something very fully featured that can be customized by the software provider (if need be). It needs to be well supported, so it will most likely be a paid option. Happy to...

    Strange Restart Issue.

    Having an issue with my main PC (first one in sig). When it restarts after any software is installed, it goes through the log off/shut down windows process, cuts the video signal, and then it just stays powered on and never actually reboots. I have to hold the power button until it turns off...

    5.25 Multifunction bay device that includes a slim slot loading optical drive.

    This is probably a long shot, but does anyone make something that takes up one 5.25 bay that has a slim slot loading optical drive and some usb or card reader ports on it? Would be great for people with only one 5.25 bay available.

    Where can I get one of these?

    This is my first SFF build. I'm planning on a WHS box with a lot of storage. I really like this case: Sort of decked out the way I'd want, I'd put the display at the bottom so an ITX board could fit: Basically, it would be a WHS version of this...

    Best PSU for $150ish.

    My trusty Enermax Liberty 620w bit the dust today after 5 years of flawless service. Hoping nothing else died with it. Computer specs are in my sig. There are a couple more hard drives in the PC that are not listed there. Computer isn't too intense, but I definitely want plenty of power to...

    Can I replace an A8N-SLI Premium with a Deluxe without reformat/repair install??

    My Premium died a few days ago and I was wondering if it is similar enough to the Deluxe for me to simply install it and not have any issues. This is essentially going to be a stopgap fix until I RMA my Premium to Asus or save some money to overhaul my rig.

    So what's the verdict on heatpipe cooled motherboards in inverted cases?

    I remember when I bought my ASUS A8N-SLI Premium a couple years ago there was all sorts of debate about whether it was safe to install a heatpipe cooled motherboard in an inverted case like my Lian Li V1000B. I never had any issues with my setup, but it may have just been because my board didn't...

    Win32k.sys Error When Going Past 2.7ghz.

    Now that I have new ram and better cooling, I'm trying to OC my Opty 170 further. I'm giving it 1.486V in the Bios, which reads 1.5V in Windows. Ram divider is at 333 and timings are stock, so it should be fine since I'm below stock speeds (note: the ram has ran fine at stock speeds). HT...

    Whenever I plug my headphones into my front audio port, I hear a ringing sound (like a ringing in your head) coming through the headphones. It reminds me of a Sin wave. If I plug my headphones into the rear audio port (one connected to the motherboard), I don't have any problems. Is my front...
