    Windows 10 sleep problem

    So far....it worked! I unplugged the cable last night before going to sleep. Woke the computer up this morning and there was no wake/sleep cycling at all, just when I put it to sleep and then woke it up in the morning. I went into Device Manager and unchecked allowing the network adapter to wake...

    Windows 10 sleep problem

    In all of the googling I've done I've seen people find out its something with the network adapter, but usually something clearly pointing to it. I will still unplug the ethernet cable to try it.

    Windows 10 sleep problem

    Hello everyone, I posted this while ago but didn't get much help, and I've been battling it off and on since. I've tried more things recently. When I checked powercfg -requests I was getting nothing. I used the 'reset this PC' function and reinstalled Windows while keeping my files. Right off...

    Windows 10 refusing to sleep.

    Hey everyone, I've been battling my Win10 machine(main rig in sig) wanting to go to sleep for a few weeks now. I've tried changing power plans, starting and running as few apps as possible on startup, none of that mattered. I recently found and tried the powercfg -requests command and that found...

    Server locking up, constantly needing hard reset.

    Ok I downloaded all of those and I ran HD sentinel real quick and all of my drives are at 100% health. I don't have time to run memtest before work today, but I did go deep into the power settings and saw that one of them had the HDD to turn off after 20 mins, which it was never put to that...

    Just upgrade Intel CPU or get AMD CPU/mobo combo for Plex server?

    Everything in my home network that was originally supposed to be streaming is connected wired, but I hooked up the TV wirelessly since the router is right behind the tv and I didn't expect to be using it to stream. That does explain why the same movie worked fine 1 time and then not later on...

    Just upgrade Intel CPU or get AMD CPU/mobo combo for Plex server?

    Well I've been messing with this a little more and now the same movie I watched thru the Plex app on the TV is now not playing, and the CPU load on the server is still minimal. The movie stutters alot and then the Plex app becomes very laggy. I'm wondering if its the Plex app that is having issues.

    Just upgrade Intel CPU or get AMD CPU/mobo combo for Plex server?

    Damn, when I searched which card to use for 4K that was the recommended, I'll check out some 1050 or 1060 cards, and I do use Windows on the HTPC.

    Just upgrade Intel CPU or get AMD CPU/mobo combo for Plex server?

    Ok I did a little more testing, the HTPC cannot direct play 4K, that has an even older i3-3225 using only the onboard graphics which doesn't support 4K, I don't know why I forgot about that. So I downloaded the Plex app on my TV and that played 2 4K movies just fine, and I checked the CPU usage...

    Just upgrade Intel CPU or get AMD CPU/mobo combo for Plex server?

    Hey guys, I was searching a little bit but can't really find an answer for my specific question. So heres the backstory, I built a low end Intel based server a few years ago with an i3 6100/MSI B150M ProVD/8GB DDR4, back when I was just storing stuff on it and then streaming to my HTPC thru VLC...

    Yahoo has taken over Firefox seach.

    Switching to Chrome would have been a last resort, I was still going to try whatever I could to fix it. Speaking of that, I didn't even know about the about:support page, I went in there and saw there was something called "safesearch.incognito" under extensions that I didn't know was there. I...

    Yahoo has taken over Firefox seach.

    Hi all, I'm just noticing that my default search engine in Firefox has changed from Google to Yahoo without me doing so, and I actually can't change it back to Google after many attempts. In my searching I saw that apparently Mozilla has made a deal with Yahoo to make Yahoo the default, but I...

    Does a HDD fail out of the blue?

    Under the circumstances I don't feel like either one has died, its like there's a conflict. Literally the exact opposite is happening. At first one drive was completely gone and the other was fine, now the one that was gone is back and the one that was fine is gone. I am transferring stuff off...

    Can't find video file on burned DVD-R

    I actually tried a couple CD/DVD checking programs and they both came back with no files and a few different errors, so I'm guessing the write was bad or the disc is bad. He is going to try to get the file sent directly to him from a file hosting site.
