    Hybrid crossfire with HD3870 & 4200

    Good day! So I've recently built a budget system that uses an old HD3870 from my previous system and my new mobo has an IGP of a HD4200. I've read that there is some hybrid crossfire action that can go on but I can't seem to get anything to work from it. I wanted to be able to do this...

    Program to quiet down blu-ray drive?

    Yea, I saw that program and I'm going to try it out but I couldn't tell if its going to work with my blu-ray drive. The blu-ray only reads at 8x so its going to be quiet regardless, however, will it work with the CD and DVD read/write portion, spinning at speeds of 48x.

    Program to quiet down blu-ray drive?

    Well, of coarse, but, I've come across some OLD programs (2002~) that can limit the speed that drives read and write to quiet the drive down. I'm a very patient person so I can deal with the cut in CD/DVD read/write speeds in an effort to keep my computer quiet. I was expecting this drive to...

    Asus MyLogo question! (RoG to Non-RoG)

    Ehh, I don't think it would be noticeable. Those POST images are pretty low quality to begin with so the expansion from 480x318 or w/e that image was, to 640x480 really isn't that much. Plus you have to cut the color down to 16 bit so that further reduces the effect. I doubt anyone would notice.

    Asus MyLogo question! (RoG to Non-RoG)

    Ok, so you need the image... Lets see. You could use this image, expand it to 640x480 in an image editing program like GIMP(free) and then set its colors to 16256 under the index option. I'd do it for you but I'm at work on a netbook which doesn't have gimp installed. If you can wait or cant...

    Program to quiet down blu-ray drive?

    I got a blu-ray drive today and I installed it and its awesome and all BUT its louder then I had expected. Does anyone know if there is a program or something to quiet this thing down and stop it from spinning up to 48x on all CDs or something? I'm not 100% sure how this works but any help would...

    Asus MyLogo question! (RoG to Non-RoG)

    I'm not exactly sure how the Asus boot screen tool works but with my Gigabyte one, you MUST have the image in 640x480 AND it MUST be in 16 bit color or lower. If not, the program will reject it. Hope this helps.

    New video card, boot problems

    Oh, shi-. I didn't even think of that. Its ok though. The video card is only like a week old, and I've got receipts, boxes, and all the other crap it came with.

    New video card, boot problems

    Oh yea. I tried that. Nothing changed. It doesn't matter now. I've replaced so many things now that I've got a 75% new PC. Now I just need a new HD monitor, Bluray player, and a new PC case. By the way, I was adding that response as a kind of helpful note for if someone has a similar problem in...

    New video card, boot problems

    Just figured out what killed the motherboard. I had my old cards pci-express slots set to specific settings telling which slots and what power rating to give them. I'm pretty sure that because I forgot about this and dumped my two old HD3870s, leaving the settings in place, it might of fryed...

    New video card, boot problems

    Didn't fix it. The new PSU I bought was a BFG 450W with all the plugs I needed but it wont even turn on. Im pretty sure 450W is enough power for an 125W CPU, video card and accessories. Anyone else think it might not be enough power? I thought it would at least turn on even if it wasnt enough power.

    New video card, boot problems

    No, I don't have another PSU nor a friend with 24/8 rails. I'll just go buy one. Thanks guys. I'll post back if the PSU fixed the problem.

    New video card, boot problems

    I got a new video card 12 hours ago. XFX HD5770 1GB. I uninstalled the old graphics drivers, shutdown, removed old video cards, installed new card, installed new drivers 9.12, and went about playing and testing with the new hardware. I was playing a video game for about an hour and all of...

    MSI Wind U100-641us

    Thanks fellas. Well, with the BIOS, I can't make a bootable CD cause its got no CD drive, I can take it to work monday, and use one there but I was hoping for USB key booting. However, if I got windows 7 installed without much problems then I guess I'll just leave it all alone. I've got the 2nd...

    MSI Wind U100-641us

    I recently got a MSI Wind netbook for taking notes and surfing the net in class. I upgraded the mem from the default 1G to 2G with an extra 1G stick. I got a larger 9 cell battery to get me through my 4+ hour classes too. I've got Windows7 and Ubuntu netbook remix on the HDD. Now, I've got a...

    grep & hidden string alias'

    Hmm. I didn't think I'd need to. I used 'grep -ls .*' and it comes back with all the hidden files. Both as su and as my norm user. I'm not sure what this paper means by 'string alias' nor how to use it in conjunction with grep.

    grep & hidden string alias'

    I'm trying to find all the hidden files in a directory with the string alias using 'grep' command. I've tried many diff combos but my terminal keeps locking up. grep -ls .string seems to be what I've been using a variation of. Yet still, lock ups.
