    Windows boots to blank screen with MSI Radeon 6970 Lightning

    My old PC had the MSI 6970 Lightning (which I bought from a user on this forum 4 years ago). I had an AIO liquid cooling system on both the GPU and CPU. I recently upgraded my current PC and moved the AIO liquid cooling system from my 6970 to my new GPU. I reinstalled the old air coolers on...

    A problem with birds, dust, and cooling.

    Update: I already have filters on all the fans. Dust from these suckers STILL manage to get in the case. I clean the filters regularly with a mini shopvac. TL;DR at the end. So, my fiancee has birds. They aren't going anywhere, and they are on the farthest possible part away from the bedroom...

    PC Cooling for dusty environment

    TL;DR below if you don't need the whole story. So, I have some rather unique requirements. My computer room is unfortunately the same room as where my fiancee's birds reside. If you do not know, birds are extraordinarily dusty creatures. The main reason being is that when they grow new...

    Anyway to stop all programs from "popping up"?

    One of the things that irks me is when I am in the middle of typing something, and some program, or something pops up, takes focus, and I start typing on that, or better yet hit "enter" and accept, or agree to something that I haven't even read. Is there a way to make EVERYTHING pop up in the...

    How to get Office key from hard drive?

    My mom's computer died. I'm building her a new one, but I was just going to use the same copy of Office. She had a legit copy of Office 2003 I gave her, but she lost the CDs. The computer won't start up, so no way for me to turn the computer on, but I can take the hard drive out and plug it...

    Looking for recommendations on gaming laptop

    I am a consultant, and will soon start traveling. I'm looking for something I take with me to game on. I'd like it to be 14-15" range. I've been looking at the new AMD APU's and they have been getting good reviews. Apparently they wipe out all integrated cards, but still not as good as a...
