    At wits end - pc keeps sometimes hard locking when exitting games or wake from idle

    Running windows 7 home premium 64bit, all legit and completely updated. When the computer hard locks, there's no events in the log. So it's a hardware problem. Running stock clocks makes no improvement.

    Will 2010 (Finally) Be Blu-ray's Year?

    I'm not motivated to replace my modest DVD collection(about 100 or so DVDs), but every movie purchase I make in the future will definitely be BD. What's the point otherwise? We got 2 HDTVs in the house, 2 BD players, what's the point buying DVDs at that point.

    Will 2010 (Finally) Be Blu-ray's Year?

    Funny you guys are talking about INTERNET streaming being the next best thing. Especially with gov't everywhere trying to pass usage-based billing and fighting net neutrality. Good luck streaming fuck all to your computer/home theatre on a 3mbps ADSL connection. Not everyone has the luxury of...

    Obama Picks Net Neutrality Backer as FCC Chief

    ummm... net neutrality is exactly what you want. otherwise, your ISP will be throttling anything they deem fit. I don't think you want that.

    Did your Asus P5Q-E board come sealed or stained?

    Just a note, you will not get charged duty and taxes if you explicitly state on the commercial invoice(paperwork needed for whatever package to cross the border) that it is intended for repair/replacement and that it will be returned to you.

    what do i need to build a HPTV capable of HiDef pvr?

    it is upgradable... but it voids the warranty. and I've already had my set-up box replaced, so reliability of my STB is not exactly that great and if I void the warranty I'm up a creek without a paddle.

    what do i need to build a HPTV capable of HiDef pvr?

    Hi, I just recently bought an HDTV(42" 1080p LG tv) and HD service. Everything works perfectly, HD looks phenomenal. I did not spring for the PVR, however now I feel I need one. Should I spring the $600-700 for a PVR with only 160GB(only one offered by my HDTV satellite service) or can I...

    New Dell Vostro 1000 laptop, "base system device" what is it?

    Hi, I just got a new Dell Vostro 1000. In my device manager, there is a base system device with no drivers. I installed the Dell System utility(Notebook System Software) that it tells me to install. Numerous times, too. Doesn't solve anything. The question mark is still there and Windows says...

    An annoying Steam issue

    It has something to do with the refresh rate. Try setting the directx refresh rate override or in the command line.

    some guy trying to hack/scam my Steam account NOW

    it does mean absolutely nothing. but when a 2 digit steamid goes for $1500 on eBay, it means something to some people. In any case, I have a 7-digit steamid and I have CAL-invite exp/proof. Apparently I'm supposed to be pretty bad at CS.

    Got Photoshop? What game case's should have been...(56K, no)

    I don't think Valve is trying all that hard to make EA some money. I'm buying HL2: Ep2 through Steam. I don't even get a fucking box.

    My experiences with Valve Steam

    You can still install it without Steam and play Half-Life. You can even play online if you like, just not with everyone else. ;) Also, you said you bought it secondhand because this Half Priced Books allowed you to see the CDkey first prior to purchasing... Isn't that a bit you know, weird...

    Steam wont connect?

    The problem is that those auth servers contain literally millions of user information and credit cards. Having those in a different country can be a security risk.

    In-game ads on their way to CS

    CS1.6 gets ads because perhaps they're tired of not getting any revenue from it and supporting it all these years.
