    8600m GT Driver stopped responding/BSOD

    Hello! Recently picked up my Qosmio G40 from service It worked fine, no problems until 2days ago when I started getting BSOD (stop 116) upon logging into windows. The only way I can escape it is using safe mode/uninstalling the drivers I tried these drivers so far: 186, 195, 250 and the...

    Asus PCE-N53 issue

    Thanks I'll think about it, but then I think its a bit of a waste since he is letting me use his internet for free:) Someone suggested that I should use a repeater like the ASUS EA-N66. Would that work across two buildings you think?

    Sapphire hd5770 vapor-x won't overclock

    Ok I tried the Afterburner and Trixx, but I could not adjust the voltage (in trixx I could only lower it). When I tried overclocking this time all the artifacts moved from the 2nd display to my prim. display.. Oh well thanks for the help anyways:) I'll consider getting a new card then.

    Sapphire hd5770 vapor-x won't overclock

    Hmmm thought the hd5770 cards were great at overclocking. Must have gotten a bad card then. I will try Afterburner, but modding the BIOS is prob beyond me..

    Sapphire hd5770 vapor-x won't overclock

    So I tried overclocking my 5770, and if I raise either the GPU clock or the memory clock I get some nasty screen tearing/artifacts on my 2nd screen (1280x1024 LCD) and some small artifacts on my primary screen (1080p LED). The GPU clock gets max 860MHz and the memory clock wont overclock at...

    New motherboard for laptop (Toshiba qosmio G40)

    Hmm I somehow knew I would get that answer.. Ive been inside the laptop quite a few times without harming it after it broke down, and its been in 4 or 5 times for repairs. The Gpu (8600M) failed 2 or 3 times and a power chip also failed once. All this only the last year.. :( sad to see the...

    LCD monitors VRS LED monitors.

    As far as I know LED monitors have much better contrast then LCD and being more power efficient. Seing that the LED monitor is also cheaper I would say its a win-win:toast:
