    Strange AMD FX 8350 overheat problem

    First of all, long time no see for those of you who remember me. Been busy with work and haven't had much time for hobbies. So here's my issue. My AMD FX 8350 is supposedly overheating according to the motherboard temperature readings. I noticed this recently after my system hard locked while...

    Reconnecting a Terminal Server to a Domain

    First of all I hope this is the correct section to post this in. Here's the problem. We have a terminal server at work whose password to the main 2003 server has expired. The computer password, not a user password. How do I get the computer connected back to the domain? You can log into...

    Fanless cases?

    So I'm doing some work for a customer of ours and they've expressed interest in fanless cases, I'm looking for something that would be able to house a mATX or ITX motherboard and a low profile graphics card. This machine needs to be smaller than a normal case so it can be tucked away. Currently...

    Counter Strike: Source

    So while we wait for Counter Strike: GO to come out, I know some of you would still love to play some CSS. Sure, I know there's newer shooters out there, and while I play those as well, sometimes it's nice to come back to some good counter strike fun. I've set up a counter strike server here...

    Game servers

    So I was wondering who people around here normally rent their "game server" from? How much are your paying? What are they giving you for your money? There's so many games out there that allow you to rent, host, etc. for online play. But I'm sure there's only so many reliable game server hosts...

    [WTB][US] Reference 5850 or better

    As the title says, I'm looking for a reference 5850 to pair with my current ASUS one. I have cash handy and can buy it now as long as the price is right. Honestly, if someone has a graphics card that they want to sell that's better than my pair of 5850s, convince me to buy it. :laugh:

    Strange issue with Dirt 3 and Logitech G110

    So, for some reason, when I play Dirt 3 using my G110, the keyboard randomly stops responding. The thing is, I don't have this problem with Dirt 2 or BF3 at all, just Dirt 3. The only way to fix it is to unplug/plug my keyboard back in, or restart my computer. Any advice? Anyone know how to...

    [WTB][US] Pair of AMD 6870's or better

    As the title says I'm looking to purchase a pair of AMD 6870's or better. I'd like them to be the same model, but if you've had different model/brand cards working in crossfire already then that's fine with me. Also looking for a Corsair or Seasonic PSU. 650W+ I'd like if it was modular but...

    Data recovery software

    Okay, so we had a customer at work make the mistake of reinstalling her OS over her old install. WinUndelete could not see the data, but another program we have, PC Inspectors File Recovery can. The issue is, it can only copy items you click, not whole folders, and when you copy more than...

    Problems with Firefox 8.

    I recently install Firefox 8 on a Dell using XP pro 32-bit and the owners are having a strange issue. I tried having them reinstall firefox, and look for a firefox.exe in task manager again, but we simply can't figure it out. Any ideas? I had it working just fine here at the office.

    Recommended Crossfire drivers?

    So with my second 5850 on its way, I was wondering what you guys and gals recommend driver wise? How are the latest drivers working? I currently have the 11.10s installed and they work decently with BF3. Thanks in advance.

    Another "help me find a good mouse" thread

    So my current GIGABYTE GM-M6800 mouse is starting to die, most likely due to my abuse and because it was cheap. So, I'm hunting around for a new mouse that fits my hand, isn't some super heavy POS, and has a DPI switch on the top of the mouse. I'd also like side buttons. I'm not looking...

    [WTB][US] Reference 5850

    I'm looking for another reference 5850 to crossfire with my current ASUS one. Looking to spend $100-130 for one, if I can't find a reference model, then I'm fine with one that's a different cooler, etc. As long it is only two PCI slots wide. Thanks for looking!
