    Which would be faster? 2x80GB 7200RPM RAID0 or 1x500GB 5400RPM...

    I voted for the 500GB. Platter Density > Spindle Speed (even if there are two of them)

    SLI Hacked on Older Intel Chipsets

    The screenshots show that they are running in safe mode, which might mean they have executed the drivers manually. But even then, surely nothing else capable of running a 3D app is active. Seems highly suspicious to me. :wtf:

    RAID 0, a volume is inaccessible

    Its worth a check but it shouldnt matter, ive taken PC apart before, and changed the port it was plugged into and it was still fine. @ sakis_the_fraud What motherboard do you have? My board has two Sata ports for an onboard raid 1 controller. Do you have a drive mistakenly plugged into...

    Windows 7 x64 RTM 59Hz issue

    How can you possibly force a higher refresh rate than the monitor supports? :confused:

    Blue-ray put to death,by Chinese

    I really dont think supporting a format whose software is owned by the Govt is a good idea at all. Maybe this format will flourish in China, but I cant see it working anywhere else.

    Windows 7 x64 RTM 59Hz issue

    It doesnt matter what i set it at, it goes to 59 Hz, GTA IV is the only thing which stays at 60. That said, the screen never refreshes, and my monitor always reports 60 Hz.

    Computer CRASH/STALL all the time with a Asus P5E3 mobo and Corsair 1333Mhz mem

    Have you gone into the bios and set the frequencies/timings/voltages as recommended by Corsair?

    New XBOX 360 NXE Dashboard Beta

    Well I bit the bullet and installed it. Finally you can change colours of clothing on at least one item (the one i like anyway :D ) Seems faster/snappier too, almost like going fom Vista to Win 7, lol. Ill see about reinstalling my games a bit later, see how much space is saved. I have...

    Windows 7 EU-Specific Variant Scrapped

    Trident is the HTML engine which IE uses. Uninstalling IE from the system leaves Trident in place as so many apps use it, including steam. It only removes the GUI that is IE. My point was that steam has been built to use Trident with its own interface for everything but screenshot popups...

    Ok, one last thing, is this the beta build thats leaked? Or the actual build which goes live on 11th?

    New XBOX 360 NXE Dashboard Beta

    Id love to try it, but some people are saying you cant get on Live if your not an official participant. I wish MS had made a bigger announcement about it, cus then I would have signed up :(

    Windows 7 EU-Specific Variant Scrapped

    My point about steam is that it can run the main app without IE, it can even run a browesr in game without IE, yet they insist on the screenshot pop-up opening in IE, wtf

    New XBOX 360 NXE Dashboard Beta

    I didnt even know they were updating it again. Any official pages or news i can read through about it? And is this an early leak? A beta? Or? :confused: I dont want to risk getting banned or anything This is the first ive heard of it, how could you even sign up to the beta? :wtf:

    Windows 7 EU-Specific Variant Scrapped

    Damn I liked the fact it would have forced devs to recode their apps to use IE less/differently For example, if I run Win 7 E or uninstall IE, steam works fine other than for pop ups (e.g screenshots). I mean its no biggie for me to go and uninstall IE, but it means that steam will...

    LCD Monitor Problem

    Doy ou have to reboot the PC when it happens? Does it only do it in certain games? Are you running the latest video/chipset/directx drivers, etc?

    LCD Monitor Problem

    So its a budget PSU bascially. It could well be that, although even a cheap 600W shouldnt struggle with a 3870. But its obviously not going to last all that long. Have you got another (decent?) PSU you can test?
  19. alexp999

    LCD Monitor Problem

    Never heard of that PSU How old is it? How much was it And can you give us the info on the sticker on it. Mainly the numbers of Amps on the 12v Rail(s) And do you have the PCi-E power connector plugged in?

    LCD Monitor Problem

    It would be so much more helpful if you could give us your system specs. Im guessing PSU might be a problem.

    Cannot download CPU-Z

    Whats wrong with just going to the official site? The one on TPUs servers is out of date anyway http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

    Helping this kid, Im confused.

    Software cant affect hardware unless you get a BIOS virus. (extremely unlikely if at all possible) Something else has happened, installing drivers cant render the PC unbootable, unless in some bizzare fashion it fried the card. Either there is a distinct smell of BS in the air, or...
