    FEAR and "hitching" with an 8800gts

    what kind of mouse are you using? and if its an opitical mouse, what kind of surface is it on? i had that problem that sounds similar, it would look like the game would stutter and i'd get spun around, but it was just the mouse ... i donno how to describe it, loosing track of itself. i put a...

    Most visually appealing while stoned...

    when i was in university there was a game i'd always play called "darkstone" ... it was easy, fun, and incredibly immersive (for the year 2000). Not to confirm any stereotypes, but the grand-theft auto games always were really appealing under the influence. especially the later ones, 3 and...

    HD Crashed, looking for advice

    I bought a pair of seagate 160gb drives about 2 years ago. One crapped out on me today. Initially, data wasn't showing up, i'd open a file, it'd take a minute or so before anything showed up, then it would only show 100 files when there had been 1,500 or so previously. I rebooted and it went...

    usually "I tried changing it, but It doesn't work." and "I don't know NOTHING about IRQs" shouldn't go together in one sentence! you can get a picture of what IRQ's are here >>

    7800 gtx vs. nvidia quadro 1400 for rendering

    i wouldn't bother buying a different card unless he's going to be doing serious rendering, even then, 3D rendering isn't dependent on your GPU, its more in tune with how much RAM you have as well as the number of CPU's and their speed. if he's just using a computer for photoshop, you've given...

    question about combining different sticks of RAM

    I just purchased two 1G sticks of pc3200, i currently have one 1G stick of pc2700 in my system. i was wondering if it would be possible to stick the two pc3200 sticks in with the pc2700? i figure they'd just clock down to the the slower of the three. I'm doing a tremendous amount of...

    I screwed up some onboard drivers when i installed some new drives. I'm going to reformat but I can't find the CD that came with my asus board. Their website doesn't seem to have all the drivers listed that i need, so i was wondering if there's anywhere I could request a cd from asus? or if...

    question about updating ati drivers

    sorry, i should have mentioned that i did all that when i got the new card. right now my problem is that the drivers bundled with the card are old enough to update. my question is, with all of the extra hardware on the AIW card, is there some specific download i need to get? or can i simply...

    question about combining memory

    sorry, i've a barton 3000+ (400fsb) you're probably right about the speed, though i do alot of graphic work so the more ram ... the better. the pc2100 wasn't bad, just not enough.

    question about combining memory

    i just bought a gig stick of pc2700 for my computer, its replacing a 512mb stick of pc2100. i was wondering if i could leave the 512 stick in and add the gig on top? or would that cause all sorts of problems? im assuming memory runs as fast as its slowest runner. anyhow, the RAM is in an asus...

    problem with geforce 4 ti4600

    i tried rolling back the drivers, still having the same problem. as for visible problems on the board itself ... no scoring, no burned out components. i figure its just hardware failure (as you guys mentioned) (i've also reseated the card a number of times, changed the artic silver paste and...

    problem with geforce 4 ti4600

    I've a ti4600 that i've been using since 2002. Its been having some troubles lately, the second monitor output won't work (i think it detects somethings attached, but won't display anything) ... recently i found that the 12volt jack for the heatsink fan stopped working (so i had to reroute to my...

    looking for the fan voltage on a arctic cooling NV silencer 1 (rev. 2)

    pretty much what the title says, i've a geforce 4 ti4600 that is still working (but just really spotty in some areas, i.e. - the second display won't work, etc). the latest problem is that the fan on the NV silencer I'd attached isn't working. This could be due to the actual fan being broke, but...

    problem with a geforce 4 ti 4600 fan

    hey, i've had a gainward ti4600 golden sample since 2002, i added an Artic Cooling NV silencer 1 and I've noticed the fan isn't working. I was wondering if anyone knew how much voltage it took. i'm trying to find out if maybe the plug on the card is dead or if its the actual fan. hopefully if...

    Tonrado Fan Noise Control

    i guess if you knew enough about the fans power consumption, you could extend the positive line and add a pot that would either increase or decrease the voltage. could just use a multi-meter to find that out.

    question about an XP install (hd copy/swap)

    hey, this is going to sound stupid, but i was curious if i could format a new HD, add it as a slave to my regular box, boot up, copy all of the content from my main drive over to the new one ... turn off my computer, pull the old main drive, change the jumper and ide cable on the new one and...

    wow, well thanks for the quick responses. I'll give the JB weld a shot, and as for the solar panel, i found these (there are larger ones, but this seems about right) ... i was wondering, they've a small dc motor that runs off .5v (up to 3v) ... do...

    ideal:a lighter flash drive!!

    yea, and you'd have to come up with a pretty decent way to shield the unit from the zippo fuel. im not sure what effects naphtha would have on a circut board if it became saturated, but i can't imagine it'd be too good. edit: ahh, alright ... what about the lid though, would you pull the...

    Haha Valve needed 7 lawyers!

    looking at the "thanks for letting us use your face" column .... i suppose larry "the count" heard is the g man? it'd be weird if it was, knowing his real name. i wonder if he freaks out his kids, you know, with all the suits and showing up everywhere.

    *spoliers* hl2 sadness

    i think he's saying that what they had at e3 wasn't going to be used in the game, so whatever was leaked a while back wasn't the game (in its finished, packaged state).
