    BenQ inverter boards? Where get?

    Yeah I didn't see anything when I checked there too. Figured someone [H]ard around here could help me connect the dots :D

    BenQ inverter boards? Where get?

    Any idea what part I should replace then and where to find said part(s)? This is the first time I've had an LCD monitor fail on me like this, and I work with so many computers personally and professionally.

    BenQ inverter boards? Where get?

    I have a BenQ RL2450HT and I'm pretty sure the inverter board needs replacement. It's an LED backlit display, and the whole panel has been getting more and more dim over time. Not in parts, the whole thing. So I don't think the backlighting is failing, hence inverter board. Warranty ended in...

    FYI, NFS cannot pass TRIM unless you're using NFS v4.2 on both server _and_ client. RHEL 7.4 and newer has NFS v4.2 official support Unsure of FreeBSD as of this writing

    Linux Gaming Across 9 Distros [Review in Progress]

    Well, I don't like running with v-sync, namely because it messes with gaming FPS and causes input lag like bananas. So keen insight here, but I don't think it was impacting me, as I believe I told nVidia to turn v-sync off (full screen blanking). Curious detail though, thanks for sharing! :D

    FYI, trying to finalise my website then get back to making content. Right now I'm stuck on a part about stylising the generation of article/blog pages. But most is already done! I want to get back to this!

    Game devs really need to look at what VALVe is doing for anti-cheat, it's way more awesome, and not invasive like this Denuvo shit... :

    Sound BlasterX G6 Reviewed

    Sure, and can you give me some examples of which are successful? I was hoping you could tell me more ;P As for the HAL thing, hmm that's curious. Does the success in Asia derive from higher Linux usage?

    That's why I prefaced with the word "professional", as in ones that are spec'd for studio grade quality and have actual quality parts, like Japanese caps in them and other proper filtering, higher impedance support, etc.

    Steam Is Getting a Redesigned Library and New Events Features

    At this point I don't understand how creative Labs is still in business. If I want more than a realtek soundcard I'm going to get a professional usb or toslink DAC. Not some cheap imitation from soundblaster.

    Health Apps Sell User Data

    Lol every single one is drug related. That's a very concerning pattern right there. Glad to say none of them overlap with me. These seem like drug apps, not health apps. I'd adjust the title of I were you.

    Disney Completes Fox Acquisition

    Actually, I simply misread the owner for Fox Corporation. After further reading into the nature of the Disney acquisition the Fox News and Broadcasting components were spun off into Fox Corporation. So yes, 21st Century Fox did indeed own Fox News and such, but that changed with the Disney...

    Facebook Employees Had Access to Millions of User Passwords Stored in Plain Text

    You can't disprove the credentials weren't abused. Therefore the reasonable thing to assume is they were abused and tell everyone to change their passwords and stop using those passwords anywhere. Did Facebook even do this? I don't think so. They are seriously the most negligent corporation...

    CNN != Fox News. Disney does own Fox News, as it is a child company of Fox Corporation (formerly 21st Century Fox) :

    Facebook Unveils the Oculus Rift S

    Not a fan of closed vendor environments, and the Occulus Rift sure seems to be one. I'm more interested in hardware that I can use with whatever OS I want, with whatever game/app I want, and not have to worry about compatibility or vendor.
