    Tough harddrive... tough.

    I can't believe me. After all these years of being so careful with my stuff. I dropped a harddrive off my desk onto the hard tile floor. Bam, down it went, and it really smacked the ground. I thought well, there goes a 1 Tb drive down the drain, along with all the files. Nope, it is still...

    SAFE MODE? ok OK, don't start screaming at me for this post

    I say that because I can't find the proper forum to post in. Here is my issue. I have an old pc with security cameras hooked to it via Ethernet and a 16 channel dvd card made by Sharx Security. I use Windows 10 now on it (sorry I did the upgrade) and everything was fine for 3-4 months. It all...

    Win 8.1 will not install... rolls back every time

    What the hell is going on? Win 8.1 will not install... rolls back every time I try to install it over Win 8. Yes, Win 7 and 8 are installed, activated and updated. This is on a brand new and fresh installed hard drive. I started out with Win 7 installation, went through all the Win 7 updates...

    Newegg cares about the customer...

    Just thought I'd toot a horn for the egg. Seems some people have minor issues with them, I certainly don't. They have always been a class act for me. I've used them for many years. I bought a refurbished Asus AC1200 router 2 weeks ago from the egg. It came with some items missing. The router...

    Looks like the SSD pricing is very good online this weekend

    Looks like the pricing is very good online this weekend for SSD's. I just grabbed another Intel® Solid-State Drive (Intel® SSD) 730 Series SSDSC2BP240G4R5 2.5" 240GB SATA 6Gb/s MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) for the measly price of $109.00 plus free shipping @ the egg. This isn't THE...

    Wireless? I am finally considering going partial wireless in my home. I was always reluctant to try it as I use ethernet and have been more than happy until now. I use a Linksys BFSR810 8-port router now which works ok. I also use a Motorola Surf Board 6141 modem. I have added more stuff in the...

    Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare... your thoughts?

    I just got the multi-player and love it so far. I know I'll get flak from all the BF players here but that's ok. I mean, there must be a few here that like COD? So what do you think about this version so far? I only have an hour playing in at this point myself but I like what I see.

    Win 10 boots...

    Anyone else notice Win 10 boots much faster into Windows? I mean much, much faster. I am now getting into Windows almost as fast as my SSD drive on my other machine. It's crazy fast for me.

    Win 8.1 - Save Test Dig

    I went ahead and installed Win 8 and upgraded that to 8.1. I figure I may as well get used to it now before Win 7 becomes fossilized. Now right after I get into Win 8.1 I get a small window that pops up and says "Save Test Dig". I x-close it and continue and all seems good. I just wonder what it...

    What's new and hot in mousepads

    What's new in mouse pads nowadays? Since I just ordered a new mouse today (Razer Death Adder 2013) I thought I'd look into a good mouse pad for it but I haven't used one in 10 years. I have all my computers on desks which have a hard formica? speckled grey surface and all my mice have worked...

    Time for a new mouse

    Well, my Logitech MX518 pooped the bed for good. I was just talking about what a great mouse it was a couple months ago. Matter of fact, I repaired it and posted some pics here at TPU back then. See my old posts for photos. Now it seems the sensor is dying. I tried cleaning it with alcohol and...

    I have a good friend who passed away a few hours ago. I have an older picture that I scanned but I need to shine a light on his face area as it is too dark. I know it can be done and I had some pro software a few years back that had a spotlight feature to do just that. Damned if I can find...
