    Meltdown and Spectre Patched BIOS for X58 Motherboards

    Some ASUS motherboards have a buggy implementation of Intel VT-d (Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O) in the BIOS. If enabled, some operating systems like Windows 10 will not boot. The workaround is to disable the "USB 2.0 Controller" from "USB Configuration" in the BIOS. On the P6T...

    High pitched noise coming out of the speakers when moving the mouse

    I have a new girlfriend to keep me busy so I don't sleep a lot these days. Try the other tips I gave you. USB input causes static audio noise... Try the speakers elsewhere, remove all USB devices and try another mouse.

    High pitched noise coming out of the speakers when moving the mouse

    Try another set of speakers, then try using a live Linux CD/DVD/USB to rule out software/driver issues. Disable all power saving options in the BIOS for everything (CPU/PCIE/SATA). Try another outlet in the house that uses different fuse, with another monitor/TV if possible, and unplug all...

    High pitched noise coming out of the speakers when moving the mouse

    Latency-related problem / defective card / electrical interference from another device on the grid / lack of grounding. Try the onboard/HDMI audio and see if it appears there too. If not, clean the SB card, try another slot, try another drivers, disable C-states, and check for latency issues.

    How To Restore UHD Playback In Latest Blu-Ray Drives

    I don't know if you guys and girlettes are aware, but latest internal Blu-Ray drives (and its firmware) cannot read UHD discs. If you bring in a movie, you may face an unpleasant surprise. It appears that hardware vendors have begun blocking UHD within the drives' firmware. The Blu-Ray drive...

    help with picking a new dvd burner

    Most drives have a cheap mechanical design with rubber that dries up over time. The laser lense gets dirty over time and just die. If you have a dusty environment (smoker or live in a desert), it dies even faster than normal. The trick is to keep it sterile clean, below 25c, dry place (without...

    acronis true image is now junk

    Tried Acronis recently and its bootable media locked up on my system. Recent versions of Paragon are no good neither. Unstable and miss a lot of useful features. I recommend using older version of Paragon (v15) or Active@ Disk Image.
