    Cannot access proxy server. IE, Chrome, any app no internet. HELP!!!

    Sounds like the PC is infected with malware. Before reinstalling the OS I would try running the free version of Malwarebytes. It usually helps in situations like this. You can get it here: https://www.malwarebytes.org/

    Is it just me or is anyone else getting the "Free image hosting by TPU" tag on recent wallpapers? Is there a way to download without that tag showing? @ Rezasam1 thanks for awesome wallpapers!!

    Help on old HDD firmware

    Have you looked at this Seagate Firmware Update page? It seems to indicate that they support DiamondMax drives and has a link to the Seagate Download Finder to check for new firmware. Firmware Updates for Seagate Products

    New Laptop

    Hey that's great. I was trying to figure out the warranty and return policy but Amazon wasn't very clear about either. Hope it works out for you. :toast:

    New Laptop

    If I had to chose between the AMD laptop you found or the Intel one I found I would pick the Intel. From all the reviews I looked at this afternoon the common theme is that the AMD 7970M is too much GPU for the A10-5750M processor. I do have one more option for you. How about an Amazon...

    New Laptop

    I couldn't find any reviews of the MSI GX60 GT60 laptop or for that matter any Core i7-4700MQ/GTX 770M CPU/GPU combo. I did look at the Xotic PC web site and found this nice configuration: Core i7-4700MX/AMD 7970M XOTIC PC Sager NP8265-S (Clevo P150SM) The problem is it's above your budget...

    New Laptop

    If you look at the Gaming Performance charts in the Anadtech review you will get a feel for how the A10-5750M and 7970M perform in games (FPS) at several different resolutions. Plus you get to see which games were used for benchmarking. That might help resolve some of your confusion...

    New Laptop

    I looked at the Anandtech review and they think that the A10-5750M is holding back the performance of the 7970M GPU. Also if you look at the Gaming performance charts the AMD APU mostly performs lower than Ivy Bridge Intel CPUs paired with either a GTX 680M or the AMD 7970M. So I would guess...

    Did you look at any Intel CPUs? How about something like this? MSI GT Series GT60 2OC-022US Intel Core i7 8GB Memory 1TB HDD 15.6"

    Would you keep gaming at this CPU temperature?

    Intel says T-CASE is 67.9C for the 930. http://ark.intel.com/products/41447/Intel-Core-i7-930-Processor-8M-Cache-2_80-GHz-4_80-GTs-Intel-QPI The proc will probably start throttling around that temp so you don't damage it. Did you notice any performance issues when you hit those temps?

    Best remote control switch for PC Start/Reset

    The power button on your PC is a momentary switch (push for "on" or push for "off"). I believe the remote switch you linked to is a toggle switch (toggles the contacts between closed or "on" and open or "off") and would not work.
