    Dual monitor problem on Windows 7

    I have an 8800gts 512, using the latest nvidia drivers (updated last night during troubleshooting) on Windows 7 Ultimate x64. When I enable my second monitor (connected via dvi-vga adapter) it just shows a blank screen. It is sending something to the monitor, though, as it doesn't give me the...

    SAS cluster as shared storage for vSphere

    We're looking at moving to a vSphere-based infrastructure at work. Currently we have a few servers (3 Sun x4150s and a 2200m2) running things. We'd be planning to put the x4150s into a vSphere cluster. (Cloud?) We have a Supermicro 846e1 (24-bay case with an LSI SAS expander) connected to one...

    Problem with HTPC through HDMI Receiver

    I have my HTPC connected through my DG-910 receiver using a DVI-HDMI cable, then the receiver is connected to the HDMI port on the Benq W500 projector we have. The HTPC has a BFG 6800GT (agp) with 163.71 forceware drivers on it. I use RDP to connect to it to administer it sometimes, and before I...

    Mentor Program?

    Who remembers this? I was glancing through old PMs and noticed a few for this and was wondering what happened. Seems like one of those good ideas people forgot... Or am I just missing something and I'm still supposed to be on-call for this :p Certainly seems like something we could use...

    NCCH-DL or X5DL8-GG for fileserver

    Well, I dislike the tyan p3 board I have currently in my fileserver... lots of little quirks that make it pretty much a POS. Plus only 2 64-bit PCI slots (and no other expansion slots) makes it unsuited for what I want to do with it - hard to get 13 hard drives and gigE out of 2 slots. (2x...

    HD280 Headband cracking

    Yeah, title says it all. The headband on my HD280's (less than a year old, don't remember exactly when I bought them though) is cracking in a few places on both sides - same places on each side. This picture shows where roughly where the cracks are occuring, I'd post pics of the actual cracks...

    Vista B2 w/o ACPI

    Just to check... can't do this, right? I wanna try it on my dual P3 (tyan board) but it doesn't have ACPI. Tyan 5295 or something like that, I can look up exact model if it matters. Error text: Status: 0xc0000225 Info: Windows failed to load because the firmare (BIOS) is not ACPI...

    xclio 480BL, or something else?

    the 450BL recommended in the stickies appears to have vanished from the retailers... :( i really liked the looks/price of that one too. am i right in assuming the 480BL is a 450BL, just more robust (higher ratings)? also, recommendations in this price range (~$70 shipped) would be...

    batch adding users?

    is there a method to automatically add windows users from a list to a linux domain server? if using 2k3 server instead would work better we can do that too. basically, we want to add accounts for a large number of students from a list without typing all the names in individually. how should...

    acceleration on both monitors with ati?

    squid=fixed?

    some background: my boxen (except a borg or five:p) are all behind the squid http/1.0 proxy. stanford updated their servers to send a http/1.1 response with some information in the header when a unit (or contact at all) was requested. squid, being http/1.0, couldn't deal properly with this, and...

    input lag

    i'm getting this really annoying mouse/keyboard lag in unreal-based games. i can't reproduce it exactly, but it just happens sometimes. doesn't really matter how complex the scene is. as far as i can tell, it only happens in the unreal engine (ut2004, frag ops (mod), america's army) i haven't...

    ut2004 on linux (gentoo)

    i tried to do emerge ut2004 on my gentoo box yesterday (well, 2 days ago now (time>12) actually) and it got an unpacking error after it had finished copying the cd's to disk. (one of the announcer packages i believe... should have written it down or something i guess) so i removed all the files...

    [unconfirmed] all aFX systems @ BB to be watercooled

    i was talking to my friend who works at BB in the computer department, and he said that when the AMD rep came by to tell them about the new 939 (i assume) FX chips, the rep said that all the aFX systems would need watercooling, as on air they reached 65C. or something like that. so apparently...
