    DNS issue every 10 minutes

    Hi, I'm having DNS issues on all of my devices (on my desktop, macbook, mobile, and even my Amazon Fire Stick) every 10 minutes or so. I've tried flushing DNS cache on all of the devices, resetting my cable modem and router, but nothing seems to be helping. This issue suddenly appeared a couple...

    Can I beat the P2415Q for a dual setup?

    That's great input-- From what I remember of my 27" 1440p monitor, I had a hard time 'seeing' pixels, and a 24/25" should be quite a bit better than that.

    Can I beat the P2415Q for a dual setup?

    Hi, I'm an animator by trade, but also have been taking more and more programming work. Long story short, I need a monitor solution that has accurate colors, nice blacks, resolution/screen real estate, and would prefer something as close to Apple's 'retina' DPI as possible. Is there anything...

    Workstation Build - First build in 10+ years

    Hah. Thanks man. That's an affordable build! Is the onboard graph is able to run 2x Dell 24" 4K monitors? Also, regarding ECC ram, I've had no problems on my MacBook Pro, so I'd assume I should be ok there.

    The switch broke on my external so I took it out of its casing and bought this kit, just so I could dump the data on to my computer.......I thought it would recognize it.

    External HD

    I have a 500 GB IDE HD that I took out of its external case (switch melted) I'm looking to dump the whole thing on my iMac and then move it to my new 2TB external. While I dont need to buy a case for my old external I will if I have to. Anyone know of a cheap way to connect my HD to my computer?

    Adding laptop to small business server

    Just bought a laptop for our office with Windows 8 pro. Trying to add it to our network of servers/printers/etc. Our server is a desktop that runs Windows 2003 server. From there I can manage all users. Usually with the users I set up, I can simply add user/password, and I am able to hook...

    Been away from PCs since 2005 -- How's my new build looking?

    1. I'll downgrade the PSU to 650w. Thanks. 2. GTX 680 might be a bit overkill, but from what I'm seeing, more CUDA cores helps dramatically in Ray-Tracing in After Effects CS6. 3. As far as the case goes, I've turned my attention toward the Antec Performance One Series P183 V3 (LINK) To...

    File-Sharers Buy 30% More Music Than Non-P2P Peers

    Been away from PCs since 2005 -- How's my new build looking?

    Thanks for the help. I'm not seeing any LGA 2011 + Z77 motherboards... It's looking like I'd better ditch this screen and get a couple of the Dell 27" IPS screens? If I did that, could I run two Dell monitors off the GTX680?

    Been away from PCs since 2005 -- How's my new build looking?

    I'll be using this computer as my animation work rig (Predominantly Adobe After Effects CS6, and some Premiere + Photoshop CS6). I don't need insanely fast renders, I just want working in the timelines to be really snappy. Also, I have a 27" Thunderbolt Apple Cinema Display. Am I okay to use it...

    Network Copier

    Hey guys thanks for all your help. I finally was able to get it working by adjusting the IP address a bit. Instead of using IP: 010.001.010.060 i used IP: 010.001.010.250 A computer must have been grabbing the IP, preventing the copier from using it. Now I'm trying to set up email on...

    Network Copier

    First off, I truly appreciate your help. It's probably annoying to you, but its very helpful for me. DHCP disabled. Rebooted. Set IP. IP: 010.001.010.060 Gateway: 010.001.010.001 ...still can't ping. There are other setting on the copier listed below, do you think that could affect it? -DNS...

    Ok so again I rebooted it with the changed ip address: 010.001.010.060 BUT the Gateway address changed to: 192.168.000.001

    Network Copier

    I set the copier to DHCP and rebooted it. The IP address is now 010.001.010.060 but in parenthesis (192.168.000.007) The Gateway address is now 010.001.010.060 but in parenthesis (192.168.000.007) Now manually add the printer to the network using the above IP?

    Network Copier

    Sorry, it is 10.1.10.1 Just to confirm I follow with you. Set the copier to DHCP, reboot the copier and check the IP address. Manually the address? When I add the printer to the network?

    Network Copier

    Server: IP: 10.1.10.110 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 10.1.10.0 Copier: IP: 192.168.000.007 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.000 Gateway: 192.168.000.001 Tried pinging to no avail. With these findings I assume I'm in trouble?

    Network Copier

    Damn. I knew it would be hard but didn't realize it would be this difficult. We bought the copier used from another business. It's a Ricoh Aficio 2045e. I was able to pull up the IP address on the copier itself. I can change the IP address on there as well or Auto Assign (DHCP). I've tried...

    Is my SSD dead? (bought new today)

    Thanks Johnle, tried everything you mentioned, took it to the genius bar... still no luck. BUT, I just plugged it into my gf's 2009 MBP 13" and Lion installed no problem. So the SSD is fine... my 17" MBP is the culprit... I'm beginning to think I'll just return it since I bought it from Macmall...

    Hi guys, I bought a new Crucial M4 512GB SSD and installed it today in my early 2011 17". I 'erased' the drive using disk utility while booting off my thumb drive copy of Lion and started the installation process. Then, when the computer restarts, it hangs... and hangs... I hit the power...
