    Hey all, Beginner level question but I can't figure this out. I've got my sig rig as a 24/7 file storage computer (in addition to all the workhorse things I do with it...) and I'm trying to map my network drive out to my two Surface Pro 6s so I can have all the data centralized to this main PC...

    New build not booting

    Hello all, System specs are the one in question. I had this up and running fine and dandy for 2 weeks then tried to adjust some pbo settings which didn't work and caused a post failure. I reverted back to previous which somehow caused yet another failure so I said screw it and reset to bios...

    AMD Power Saving

    Hello all, Recently got my 5950 system up and running on an Asus b550 gaming E platform with a 3080 gpu.

    Ryzen 5950x build advice

    Hey all, My rig died 2 months ago and I've been patiently waiting for Zen 3 to drop. It's been a decade since my last build so wanted some other opinions on what I'd put together. This will be a dual use gaming and video editing rig. I have no idea what ram to go with since I'm not sure what...

    SOLD Up for sale is my recently retired projector. Replaced so I could jump up to an Epson 5050UB for the 4k hdr experience. I must say in the year I had it I was very impressed, much more so than I thought I would be. I'm a second owner (was installed for previous house owners by a Home...

    Hey all, I've got a great condition laptop that I need to part with because I, for the life of me, cannot get my fresh install of windows 7 to allow any updates. I've tried various forums trying to get windows update to do anything, but I've never had any luck. It's got the windows home...

    Hey all, Long time no posting. My wife is looking to use my PC for working from home. PC is 7ish years old running an i5-750. Her work is very CPU intensive, and I'm wondering your thoughts on me simply tracking down an 1156 i7 processor to change out, or if I should just build a new system...

    Hey all, Nub question, but need reassurance before I do this. I want to reinstall Win7 on my SSD and don't want to lose the data on my 2 other HDDs in the rig (2tb data drive is essential to not lose w/ the reinstall). If I pop the discs in and completely format the OS drive, reinstall, and...

    Your Favorite Screen/Video Capture Program?

    Hey all, Starting to play MWO a bunch and wanted to get some full screen video captures of it for kicks and giggles. I use FRAPS usually, but it is cutting the recording at ~1 minute then stops recording and makes me press F9, which is not conducive to fighting well. What do you guys use for...

    Password Protecting Sensitive Data

    Hey all, I am in need of some methods of protecting some sensitive data on both an external harddrive and my own pc. Free programs would be appreciated, but if there are paid ones that work better and more reliably, then I am fine with that too. Any recommendations?

    New Build for Casual User

    I'm building a computer for my grandma here in the next week or so and wanted to run my choice by you guys. This will be overkill a bit, but she doesn't want to have to buy a new computer for quite a long time so I went a bit higher. She pretty much uses it for emails, facebook games and...

    New Sharp Elite TV not all that Elite

    I was invited to a "public unveiling" of Sharp's new Elite TV at a local A/V store last night, and I thought I would share my initial impressions with the community. For starters there should be some background on the TV: It is being manufactured by Sharp who hired on a lot of Pioneer's...
