    lookin for a portable yet powerful laptop, high budget

    Oh for portable he's looking for something that is like thin and easy to carry around. the gaming is for his at home time. I was thinking something like that gaming ultrabook that acer has, but not sure if there's anything better with that kind of size.

    940 Deneb gone funky!

    nope neither. but after I restarted it and went into the bios and reset everything, it seems to work fine again. This is super odd, as I don't do anything with the computer cept browse the web lol.

    940 Deneb gone funky!

    So When i turned on my computer this morning, I heard the fan speed for the CPU run on max speed. It was odd. When I loaded up into windows, it gave me the message "restart windows to see the changes" or something and so I did to see what changed. The fan was still on max. So I loaded up HW...

    Laptop Power Adapter overheating

    laptop adapters (the stock ones that come with the laptops) seem to have poor quality and die often. One friend went through like 3 of them (since they were under warranty), the other friend has a funky one that seems to stop charging after some time, so he got a new charger off amazon. perhaps...

    router/modem shuts down internet???

    Didn't get to read the new posts till now. I see, Never used those before, Im not too sure how those work or how I would set them up to keep my Internet alive tho. That's be cool if I don't have to keep a computer turned on 24/7! Thanks guys.

    Help Mussels find a laptop!

    the acer one i can vouch for the 520 and 540s overclock well. get quite a nice boost from it. and if you get the one with an i5 it'd be pretty sweet. its also great for saving power too.

    router/modem shuts down internet???

    Oh that's right those are meant for routers. Good point. Fortunately as 1freedude said there is an updated firmware for my router on the netgear website! I applied it and now I'll see if the problem is solved!

    router/modem shuts down internet???

    Hahaha I wouldn't have noticed that. As for the modem settings, since my n300 is modem and wireless router combined I believe all the settings are together. On a side note what do you guys think about this: I read somewhere that this n300 can actually use numerous other firmwares since it...

    router/modem shuts down internet???

    The odd part is even when I turn off all the computers, it's only after awhile of no Internet usage that it would disconnect the internet. I just don't get it. Like if I leave a computer On and it's using the Internet occasionally then it would not shut off the internet

    router/modem shuts down internet???

    Still can't seem to find the cause. Doesn't seem like the router is broken or anything. I even set the connection mode to on demand and then the idle time to 0 to have it reconnect whenever it disconnects (keeping the connection Alive) but yet nothing seems to fix the issue. Scratching My head...

    router/modem shuts down internet???

    I can log in when it happens but as to reconnect to the dsl I don't see such an option. Only thing pretty much is a reboot I think.
