    Video card for 3 monitors

    Do any video cards support 3 monitors? I already have an 8800GT hooked up to 2 monitors and want to hook up an LCD TV to my computer. I got a 9800GT but I'm out of PCI Express x16 slots so I need to figure out another strategy. I want to be able to play 1080p movies from my computer.

    Brother HL-5170DN says toner is empty when its not

    Does anybody know how to override the TONER EMPTY error message on a Brother HL-5170DN laser printer? It claims my toner is empty when I know for a fact its not. I tried taking the cartridge out and shaking it lightly to distribute the toner, but that didn't work.

    RAID 5 on Asus P5E intel x38

    I'm building a new system (http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1253283) and want to have RAID 5 on it. Is the "intel matrix storage" raid real or just software raid? The motherboard on my last system died, so I'm skeptical of using a motherboard specific raid implementation. Can anyone...

    Critique my build

    ok, i'll check that out. does anybody know if the raid on this motherboard is real? or is it software? i can't find any clear info on this "matrix" raid. i suppose that if the motherboard fails, i'll have to find another with a similar chipset to read the raid array?

    Critique my build

    The motherboard on my current rig died, so I'm going to build myself a new quad one. I wanted to get some feedback before ordering. I'm planning to use it for programming, watching movies, playing a couple games (not much tho), maybe some graphics stuff... and just general computing. 1...

    Wait, don't all the cards you guys posted only have 1 vga and 1 dvi? Will the screen's look weird if one runs off dvi and one off vga?

    Video card for dual 24" monitors

    I'm getting two dell 2407WFP monitors and need to get a video card which supports them. They have 1920x1200 resolution, and DVI/VGA connections. I run linux, so I'd nVidia cards tend to be better supported than ATI. Does anyone know of any cheap, but good video cards that have dual DVI outputs...

    USB 2.0 on scanners

    I feel like everyone just contradicted each other. I'm pretty sure the LiDE 25 is just USB 1.1. If you look at the comparisons on the Cannon site, it says "USB" for the LiDE 25 but "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed" for the others. Plus, if it was USB 2.0, then there would be no difference between the 25 and...

    USB 2.0 on scanners

    I want to buy a scanner... but I want it to be thin (like the Cannon LiDE scanners). The LiDE 60 is about $30 more expensive than the LiDE 25 and the only difference is that it has USB 2.0 hi-speed. I imagine that these scanners are more limited by the speed that the actual sensor moves rather...

    My MS Intellimouse Optical started clicking twice for every time I click. Will Microsoft replace it? Its like 4 years old.

    NF7, 2400+ athlon xp-m crashes

    So it looks like the problem is fixed. Gentoo, xorg and KDE all compiled! It has been perfectly stable! It seems like I just had the cpu voltage too high. I forget what it was at ... i know it was over 1.6 and maybe even 1.65. Thats why before when i clocked it back to normal, it still had...

    NF7, 2400+ athlon xp-m crashes

    I lowered the voltage on the CPU to 4.475 V and its at 133 x 11.5 right now. It seems to be going very good. I haven't run into a crash yet, though i haven't tested it very thoroughly. I ran Prime95 for a few hours. The max temperature it was getting ot was 49.5C, and it would drop to around 39C...

    I don't remember what they were... but they were completely different every time and occur while compiling different parts. I haven't tried to install Gentoo in a while. I guess I could try again though... Oh yeah.. and on Windows I have all the latest drivers for all the stuff..

    (Java) using split() function to parse text into database

    I have a text database which I'm trying to parse. Each entry has about 20 different fields, some of them containing words and some not. In order to parse it, I was going to use the split() function to split it at every field "name" so the data for each entry would be an element of an array. Some...

    abit nf7 and linux

    I've been trying to get Gentoo working with various 2.6 kernels. My system randomly locks up though. My PSU voltages are good and I ran a memory test. I'm pretty sure its the nforce2 acting up with linux... ugh i don't know how to fix it.

    Out of Scan Range

    I have Red Hat linux 9 and I just changed the monitor on my computer. This one doesn't support the resolution or refresh rate or something that hte other had, so it says out of scan range as soon as i enter the OS. How can I change the resolution when it does that right away?

    2400+ xp mobile not detected

    I just got a 2400+ XP mobile chip and my Abit NF7 isn't detecting it. In the bios it just says unknown processor and sets the FSB to 100 and multiplier to 6x. When i try to change those settings it just doesn't work. What is the fsb and multiplier supposed to be at for it? how can i fix this?
