    Tablet help

    As I just stated, designing and actually manufacturing a tablet form factor device with a significant amount of graphics power by way of a discrete GPU from either AMD or Nvidia is going to be a very expensive process and of course that means you're going to pay a hefty premium for such a piece...

    Q2VKPT Brings Ray Tracing to Quake 2

    Honestly I think it looked much better back in the good old days when I had a 3Dfx card and their GLide support. But then I got a Matrox G400 and that to this day produced what I still consider to be the best-looking graphics output of any card that I've ever been able to use. When Unreal (and...

    Tablet help

    Depends on the games you're talking about and yes I read the OP and the follow-up post about a few named games so consider this: if you want to play Android-based games but not on a smartphone you can actually use something like BlueStacks to do it and it usually works pretty well given the...

    773 Million Records from Massive Data Breach Uploaded to Have I Been Pwned

    This kind of thing happens so frequently that soon enough - and I know this is actually more than likely going to possibly happen (figure that one out) - we're going to see a report that the "';--have i been pwned?" website itself is going to be pwned. :D

    2-in-1 Laptop/Tablet Suggestions?

    According to the PSREF (which is like Lenovo's product BIBLE so if it's not in that then it pretty much doesn't exist) there is no 80XF00EKUS model - the US/Canada model of the MIIX 320 is the 80XF00DRUS: http://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/Lenovo Tablets & Convertibles/Miix_320?M=80XF00DRUS and...

    How do you backup with integrity check?

    Using checksums like MD5 and SHA1 are fine but all they do is compare the current state of the file's data to the state when the checksum was created. If you want some level of redundancy and the ability to recover files that are corrupt, I suggest learning about PAR technology, using tools such...

    Netrunner 19.01 Blackbird Linux

    I'm well aware of what everyone believes is going to happen next January, I'm simply saying that it's not going to happen the way people believe it's going to happen, and Windows 7 will see patches and security updates through at least mid 2022. It is possible that Microsoft will alter the...

    Yep, if the grand kids know so much, that's her source for support unless she's willing to pay you for the hourly cost of doing it yourself. :D

    Netrunner 19.01 Blackbird Linux

    "Microsoft is killing Windows 7, so you should switch to Netrunner 19.01 'Blackbird' Linux distro now!" Thanks, I haven't laughed so hard in a while, I really needed that gut buster laughter there I just recovered from. :D As for this distro, it's just Linux, it's nothing special, some pretty...

    Win 7 Pro unstable...Which OS should I install?

    And now you folks end up taking it to the next step where you're basically arguing about the UI of Linux desktop environments. In a thread that is basically about Windows 7 Professional and some stability issues on a given machine as fairly clearly stated by the OP. Are you kidding me? o_O

    2-in-1 Laptop/Tablet Suggestions?

    I don't understand the massive amount of dislike for the kickstand on the Surface Go. It's a pretty solid thing and they've put an incredible amount of engineering and design principles into ensuring that that kickstand is a pretty solid and reliable thing but whatever - it's there to use but...

    2-in-1 Laptop/Tablet Suggestions?

    Considering the processor is where you would define what kind of class that might be and since that Lenovo Tablet 10 has a Celeron it's basically mid to low end. The eMMC storage is also usually considered to be mid to low end, an actual SSD or in some very very rare cases a hard drive of some...

    Are you people seriously turning this into yet another Windows vs Linux thread? :confused::eek:o_O:cautious:

    Tablet help

    A Surface Go as I just mentioned in another thread might be a worthy choice. Even the low spec model with the eMMC storage gets great reviews, and while it's got an 1800x1200 3:2 aspect ratio display it's still a worthy item to check into.

    2-in-1 Laptop/Tablet Suggestions?

    For that kind of price you might be much better off with a Surface Go these days. Even the lower spec Surface Go with the eMMC storage (which was benchmarked as being pretty damned fast actually) would probably run circles around that Lenovo Tablet 10 but I know the Lenovo one is supposed to...

    Win 7 Pro unstable...Which OS should I install?

    The basic gist or point I was trying to make is: unless you're a business with critical data that needs redundancy like that, a typical home computer user - even a professional doing work at home - would rarely (personal opinion here) need to make full system backups of any kind...

    Tablet help

    A first or second generation Surface Pro would work nicely. Not great battery life, not great GPU performance (Intel), not really a gaming machine obviously but either of them, or even a third gen Surface Pro with the fully adjustable kickstand would offer everything necessary and any of them...

    Win 7 Pro unstable...Which OS should I install?

    Does the word excessive come to mind reading that? :D Sounds like you have a seriously excessive amount of backups and obviously so much redundancy that you're hampering you're own efforts if there's a big problem or even a relatively minor one. I'm not slamming you at all for it, I've known...

    Man Gets 10 Year Prison Sentence for Launching Cyberattacks Against Hospitals

    Now if they would put him in jail or prison and not give him any health or medical attention for his entire sentence that would be something I'd considered to be just. But as it is the moment he gets taken into custody at the prison or jail or wherever he'll have access to probably better health...

    Amazon Is Developing a Game Streaming Service

    I'll never understand this fascination with watching other people playing games, it's just the strangest thing to me that's come along in many a decade. Apparently it's making a lot of money for both the participants gaming and the streaming services, of course, but... Humanity... stupidity...

    Win 7 Pro unstable...Which OS should I install?

    If your machine is one that supports a dual BIOS then yes, I'd suggest giving that a shot and see how things work out. Again, I'm suspecting there's some hardware issue with this machine and not software based problems.

    Windows 8.1

    If it's asking for a key to be put in, sure, I've never seen such a thing but I do know that on an unactivated machine, if you're looking at the System Properties page at the bottom that you should be able to find a link to change or input the Product Key to do the activation, or you can use the...

    Win 7 Pro unstable...Which OS should I install?

    I couldn't even begin to diagnose the issues you're having based on whatever updates have been installed, that's just not possible at this point in time. If you take note of the last thing I say in my signature below you should get some ideas, sorta. :D

    Win 7 Pro unstable...Which OS should I install?

    If you open Windows Update, then choose "View update history" on the left panel, and then on the next screen choose the link at the top for Installed Updates you can remove installed updates, yes. Mind you that this only works for updates that have been installed using Windows Update - if you...

    Win 7 Pro unstable...Which OS should I install?

    Then reinstall the recent image and DON'T hit Windows Update and see what happens, I suppose. I did catch that aspect originally but didn't consider it because you didn't point it out in the first instance - you simply said you started having issues but neglected to mention any updates had been...

    Windows 8.1

    You can add or change to a different Product Key, yes, it's relatively easy to do from an Administrative Command Prompt with a few commands. To insert a new Product Key you need to open an Administrative Command Prompt (which has Admin privilege) and there are a multitude of ways to do that but...

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    I just cannot imagine using an OLED for day to day computer use, at least not for a few more years. The costs of these beasts right now is crazy, and knowing that the moment it's turned on the pixels are literally dying, ouch, that's a considerable expense. And also considering there's a lot of...

    Windows 8.1

    The Product Key is good for both versions, x86 aka 32 bit or x64 aka 64 bit, but obviously it's just one activation per key so make sure you choose the right installation media/ISO/etc. My advice has remained the same since activation started a long long time ago: install the OS but do not enter...

    Microsoft's killer Windows 7 patch: Breaks networking, bricks legit 'Not genuine' PCs

    It's probably an attempt to start going after the metric shitload of users out there with Windows 10 Enterprise versions (LTSB and LTSC) that are using hacked KMS servers to bypass actual legitimate activation methods. I mean really, probably 95% of the people running Windows 10 Enterprise on...

    $50 Gaming Laptop Recommendations

    Could probably find a ThinkPad T400 or T410 with a Core processor for about that much if you're fast on the bids/purchase actions, or perhaps a Latitude E6400 with an Nvidia GPU it in for something in the same price range. There are a lot of sub-$100 laptops out there that can game fairly well...

    Found my first MP3 player

    Well I thought the whole reason you created this thread was to say "Look what I found, I wonder if I can get it working again..." and so on and so forth, but apparently that wasn't the idea. There's actually a market for those older audio players in good working condition, a few bucks for a...

    Scarlett Johansson Can't Stop the Internet from Pasting Her Face on Porn
