    Ram or Mobo or PSU = crash?!

    My old PC (Pent D805 with i945 Gigabyte) is crashing constantly. BSOD's and general windows and non windows freezes. I have more success while booting with certain RAM placements (I have 4 dimms and 4 ram sticks). However while trying to run some Memtest on the different ram sticks/dimms...

    Asus Eee Netbook (2nd gen) $149.99 w/code at

    I was thinking the same thing. Storage is important with these devices. So was considering getting large SDHC cards, or swapping out the SSD for a larger one. All options increase the price to where it is a tradeoff with an HDD. And if I'm getting an HDD flavor I would prefer a 2.5" SATA...

    new mobo causing jitters?

    Got a new motherboard replaced in my Dell M1330. Popped the harddrive back in. Booted up eventually. But the whole OS is now jittering. Sounds jitters (skips and repeats then resumes...) so does video and even the mouse movements are effected. Tried resinstalling drivers. Nothing...

    Looking for an ultra portable laptop that does not have an atom

    Really? Saw the Office Depot deal on that model for $600 on SD yesterday. I saw some benchmarks showing the ATOM still is faster. Can you link to some reviews/tests? I want to know performance/watt - efficiency - battery life. This is key in portables.

    What are some options to consider?

    You should state if you play games (maybe list what you play). There are many options at that price point. Dell studio/XPS lines for starters. I have the XPS M1330 - it serves me quite well - it is 13" and has been around for awhile. Dell should be refreshing its 13" line sooner or later. If...

    Where to find replacement parts for laptops

    Thanks for sites. Found some parts, but ebay is cheaper. I still can't see myself dropping $200 on a replacement motherboard for my old Dell i6000, when netbooks aren't that far away in price... If it was $50 then I would do it... Anyone know where I can pickup motherboards on the...

    HP laptop no lcd video but external display works.

    So my GF lappy would turn on but wouldn't display any image on the screen. Hooking up external display didn't show anything (tried s-video and d-sub). I dug up the service manual and got all the way down to the CMOS battery and after resetting it the laptop did reboot and LCD screen did show...

    Plantronics .Audio 370 @ $12.99 FS

    Got mine here. Mos Def sounds nice on them now. Everyone at the office get a little chuckle when they see me wear it. Guess they are not used to such a 'large' headset. They are only this big to be comfortable for long duration use. I can easily wear these all day and not really 'feel' on my...

    Acer Aspire One, take two... Size Matters... :)

    Thanks Joe, Not convinced though :) Both the Acer and the Asus are 2nd Gen models produced based on mistakes made in their previous iteration. What am I missing then? What does the NC10 give over the new improved models above?

    The best netbook?

    So I have $100 off J&R. Gonna get a Netbook. NC10 is out because it's $100 more then the ones I'm considering: AAO D150 (the new 10" ones) ASUS 904HA

    Acer Aspire One, take two... Size Matters... :)

    So what should I get. I have $100 off anything at J&R and need to get a Netbook. Looks like they have the ASUS 904HA and the Acer AOD150 (currently preorder) NC10 is a whole $100 more then either model so not going to consider it for that reason (it's the economy, silly!).

    Intel Turbo Memory

    I have the XPS M1330 and original install did come with the Driver installed. I don't know if i'm using it now or not... but I did notice people saying here that 4GB is max in laptops. This is not true. Dell released new BIOS for M1330 enabling 8GB.

    DFI LanParty JR 790GX-M2RS is finally out

    Hey, so whats the verdict on this board. DFI LanParty JR 790GX-M2RS I'm thinking of building a slim HTPC and the HD3300 is what is most appealing to me on this mATX board (seems to be the only one that is 790 and mATX)

    [Warm] Phenom 9600 + TA790GX $179.98 - $10 MIR = $169.98 free shipping

    Say I wanted to get this for an HTPC setup (without a dedicated GFX card - being as the 3300 is enough to decode HD). What cases would fit a full ATX board AND be as slim as possible (even slimmer then low profile sized ones)?

    (warm?) Sapphire 3870 $89 after promo

    Makes me kinda regret getting the 4670 IceQ for $80 after rebate. I don't NEED the horse power of a 3870, and I guess I will save not having to get a new PSU with enough juice to run it. And the 4670 is extremely power efficient. But $9 difference.
