    2 sodimm slots but can only use one stick of ram

    I seem to have an unusual HP laptop but I'm not sure if something is broken or if this is just some weird crap that HP does. I just got two matching sticks of ram, 2x8GB 2400MHz 17-17-17-39 1.2V, xmp/docp is not necessary for these sticks. The board has two sodimm slots but it will only boot up...

    4TB drive showing up as 1678gb and requiring EFI reflashes

    I tried running the Hitatchi WinDFT tool to erase the whole drive (took hours) and the MBR (even though it is a GPT disk). The Hitatchi tool says the drive is 4TB in one window and then in the next it says it is 3TB. Disk management, diskpart, and Testdisk all say the drive is 1678GB (the...

    Software to measure frame rate every 1/10 of a second?

    Is there a program that will do this? As far as I can tell FRAPS only queries once a second. I want a program that queries at least every 1/10 of second. I am trying to illustrate the stutter that Black Ops is experiencing. An average of 60fps isn't playable if the first half of a second...

    New driver 263.14 fixes some problems. It's not up on the Nvidia site yet but it fixed the majority of stuttering problems I'm having in Black Ops. Thought I would post it in case anyone wanted to give it a try.

    How do I make a time based chart?

    I want to run some benchmarks on COD Black Ops with a time based chart like [H] uses but I am not sure how you go about getting the data for the chart. Anyone happen to know? Is there a program that will output the data to a formatted file? Then I assume I plug that into a spreadsheet? Is...

    Just a reminder to clean your heatsink. I forgot all about it this month and then my computer wouldn't reboot. Then I notice the CPU fan was unable to keep spinning for more then a second. I pulled the fan off and the surface of my thermalright ultima 90 was completely blocked with dust. No...
