    New laptop vs. old

    I don't know how to. besides, it's too late since i uninstalled it. But what about the SiS chipset? Or the GPUs? I searched around and found out that a "regular" (128bit) x1700 is better than a hd3470(64bit), but my x1700 is 64bit also, so that should reduce the gap between them.

    Laptop HDD Clank?

    Is it only making that sound when idle? If yes, that's normal. Alot of laptop drives do that. Basically, the drives parks the heads so that they don't damage the platters in case of shock and to preserve power. Mine did that too, but i now have hd tune running in the background(it acceses the...

    Need Help - WD 2520GB drive shows as 20GB

    Look at the jumpers. Some drives have a jumper that limits their capacity to 20-30 GB so you can use them in older OSes like Windows 98 which cannot work with very big drives due to FAT32 limtations. Removing that jumper should fix it.

    Potentially worrying SMART attribute

    This is the diagnostics of my external seagate baracuda 3.5" 7200.10 250 gb HDD. I use this for backup. Is it bad? And this is the diagnostic for the 100 GB 5400rpm seagate momentus in my laptop. It's almost 2 yrs old and has similar values, but nothing is highlighted. why?

    Which DVD burner?

    I have an Optiarc(i think it's a joint-venture between Sony and NEC) in my laptop. It's 2 years old now and is great. It's a little noisy, but not that bad. My old desktop has a TEAC drive that's now 4 years old. Also working like a charm.

    best game music

    Syberia (mostly the track in Valadilene), but all were beautiful. And so was Syberia 2. But IMHO they all pale when compared to Dreafall: TLJ. The hospital room at the beginning and end of the game was very impressive and touching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYnX7k8vzdo Faith's...

    NVIDIA Sued Over Faulty GPUs

    ALL chips are affected, since they're basically the same. Laptop GPUs are more affected because they have to go through more temperature variations, and that's what kills nvidia chips.

    ATI Deliberately Retards Catalyst for FurMark

    I just looked at the furmark homepage and the app is just 1.4 MB. sorry if i sound stupid, but ca a tyni program like this really stress a GPU more than, say Crysis or 3dmark06 and fry it? And can't artifacts appear because of bugs in the program? For example, when i play mass effect on my...

    Did ASUS Place an Enormous Sempron Order?

    Finally some good news from AMD. Unfortunately there are alot of intel fanboys around there. for example, there's a guy in my class that thinks his gma950 beats my radeon x1700 in gaming just because its intel, and mine's ati/amd.

    Silly external HDD question

    Ok,thats good to know, thanks for the replies. Altough i noticed that it vibrates more when its vertical than when its horizontal. Maybe because it has some rubber feet on its side but the stand doesn't. And while we're at it, do you have any idea how i can read the HDDs SMART? I tried...

    Forcing resolutions

    HI I was just wondering if i canforce a particular resolution in a game that doesn't support it. For example, the only widescreen resolutions that the witcher supports are 1024x640 and 1280x800, both being too much for my 64bit x1700. it would be nice if i could run it at 848x480. Thanks...

    Sapphire ATI Radeon 9550 256Mb AGP

    I heard that new catalists have problems with agp cards. Also, the fact that your mobo is only agpp4x might have something to do with it. And isn't your psu a little weak?
