    Windows 7 Install partition problem

    Only time I've had Windows skip a bootable dvd is when the burn didn't make a checksum correct copy. You may need to reburn it if you made it via image. Also if you want to nuke the partition completely, you can just make a bootable linux cd or usb (if supported by bios) and use gparted to...

    Basic Networking Question

    Ideally I want to share certain private folders with only my computers, share different folders with certain people who are not always here, share 1 movie folder with another set of people and a separate movie folder with a different set of people. This would require (as far as I know) a minimum...

    Basic Networking Question

    While that does work, it isn't what I'm looking for as it both requires a lot more accounts on the computer that are only used to share files (my OCD will bug me about it), and it doesn't hide files folders that the clients don't have permission for. It won't let them run/edit the files but the...

    Basic Networking Question

    is there a way to set just set a simple username/password setup for folders to share it to certain people over a network? Essentially what I would like to be able to do is go to any folder, right click on the folder, hit share with users(or similar button) and then be able to input...

    thoughts on the ouya?

    Sometimes I use it has a HTPC (don't want to lug my desktop to the TV room for a movie night). It can't stream over wifi for crap (at least hd video). To store videos, flash drive/usb hard drive is needed. Also you have to use a special build on the ouya forum of XBMC(semper xbmc IIRC) instead...

    Confirmation of issue

    and I am an idiot. Issue resolved. For those interested, the monitor backlight went out. When I tested the other monitor I must've had it on the wrong input or something.

    Confirmation of issue

    Alrighty, so when I head over to my friends house again, I will first try the computer outside the case (Antec 300, didn't mention it earlier) to see if its a grounding issue. If it still fails then most likely a mobo issue? I will bring up the shoddy PSU info. Also, since i forgot to mention it...

    Confirmation of issue

    I believe i mentioned it in the first post, I already tried a known working PSU(same wattage) in the computer and it had the same exact issue.

    Confirmation of issue

    Sorry if i was a little unclear, the motherboard that I believe to be bad has 2 PCI-E slots, both of them do not work with either my friends nor my backup video card. My friends video card works in a separate machine (my old gaming machine) just fine. Since both ports have the issue, I am...

    Confirmation of issue

    I need a couple of opinions regarding some trouble I am having with hardware on a friends computer. Basically what ends up happening is the computer turns on just fine, all fans and drives/ect... The issue is that the monitor will show its getting a signal but it will just display black. On...

    G930 Question

    having problem with gateway

    If you bridge the tg852, then make sure the router is connected to the #1 slot. All other slots are disabled. If it is still not working once bridged and plugged into router, power cycle the router. If it is still not working, factory reset the router.

    Low to mid range gaming computer

    The PSU choice was not because I though I needed the wattage but because I have a distrust in any PSU under $70, I do agree that seasonic and antec are good brands so I would not be incredibly worried about a lower priced version model of theirs As for intel vs AMD, I really am not very...

    New Gaming Rig Help

    $30 for an extra 300 Mhz+overclock ability isn't bad I suppose. That will leave 250ish for a video card. Any suggestions (only 1 video card, I don't like SLI/crossfire. Makes the room way too hot) Any opinions on any other hardware?

    Dismal state of many people's computers....

    I understand what you mean. I am normally pretty lazy regarding many things. Computers are the exception. I never have more than 10 icons on my desktop, most of the time 5 or less (I use it for keeping notes between sessions mostly). I auto-run only programs that I use every time I boot the...

    File Sync Solution?

    Richcopy looks like a great utility but it also looks like it suffers from the same issue as robocopy. That being that it is a 1 way sync with deleting propagations, not 2 way =(. Essentially it is good as a backup solution but not a syncing solution.

    File Sync Solution?

    Oops, apparently I missed that has a LOT of options. How do /purge and /mir know which files to delete? The functionality would require some sort of database to know that the file did exist but was deleted. EDIT: If I can get robocopy to properly propagate deletions amongst 3...

    File Sync Solution?

    I know I tried FreeFileSync previously but didn't like it, I suppose I can try it again. It can't hurt. Robocopy doesn't give the option to propagate deletions. Neither does DSynchronize IIRC
