    A friend won a Powercolor RX5700 and it's DOA. Powercolor says contact AMD because they provided it as a promotional item. AMD says contact Powercolor because it's their card. Any advice where to go from here?

    It's a free or open source video suit that lets you crop video files, amoung other things. It was popular with DVD ripping enthusiasts but I can't remember it. Any guesses?

    Help needed with some network configuration.

    The tennent upstairs will be connecting through my internet connection and I need a way to cap his bandwidth. I've flashed a WRT160n with DDWRT v24 to give him his own AP to connect to. I was hoping I could cap his bandwidth but it looks like the DDWRT firmware will only allow me to give...

    Does a 1080 tv ever display an image correctly...

    ...that's coming from a PC? I recently purchased two HDTVs. A 42" Hisense and a 24" Sansui. Most computer monitors, as you know, will look like $hit unless it's running at native resolution. At native, the image is nice and sharp because every pixle generated lands on a pixle in the LCD...

    Looking for the entire heatsink assembly for this board. I picked up an i7 920 rig with a wc loop but it's a hack job. I'd like to put it back to stock and give to the gf since I can't seem to find a good used working 1366 board. I'll have to fix this one.

    Seagate Goflex 2tb NOT created equal.

    Seagate must be pinching pennys again with their recent run of 2tb Goflex external USB3.0 harddrives. I've been purchasing these for less then a bare 2tb drive and, until recently, they contained Seagate model ST2000DM001 7200RPM drives sporting a 64mb buffer. Diskmark pulls off 162MB/s on it...

    Does anyone know why the content of all my emails is showing as an attachment instead of an email? This happened after a power failure last night. I was trying to attach a file but apparently my photoeditor also broke. :banghead: EDIT - Photoeditor fixed. Take a look. In the right pane...

    nmediapc pro-lcd "ditch the molex" dimmer mod.

    Here's a mod to the Nmedia PC PRO-LCD display to loose the molex connector and add a dimmer. The red and black wires (noted with blue arrows) lead to a 4pin molex connector and provide 5v to drive the display's backlight. Using a pin, remove these from the connector. The terminals on the...

    Crucial SSD random issues. Diagnostic utility?

    I have a Crucial CT128M225 that's back from RMA and doesn't have much use. Maybe a few months of web browsing and whatnot. When I use the drive, it'll work ok for awhile then lock the computer with the HDD LED stuck on. When I reboot, the drive isn't found by the BIOS. If I keep the computer off...

    Any hardware ramdrives anymore?

    I'm still facinated by devices like this. http://www.acard.com/english/fb01-specification-print.jsp?idno_no=270 Ram is dirt cheap. The PCB and interface components are not costly either. In the link I posted, that devices biggest flaw is the CF card for backup. Replace the CF with a 2.5"...
