    USB Headsets stop working after 10-30 minutes

    My sound quits after about 10-30 minutes after playing Far Cry 2 and CS:GO for 20-30 minutes. There are no symptoms of any kind before the sound stops working. It works just fine when I exit to windows and relaunch the games. In CS:GO changing the speaker configuration from headphones to 2...

    BIOS not recognizing drive when connected to SATA tp IDE Converter

    I'm working on refurbishing some old computers and trying to get an old IDE drive to work on a Dell Optiplex GX 280 with two SATA connectors. When I plug in the old IDE drive to the SATA IDE converter the BIOS says device ID not recognized, thus I cannot use the IDE drive. Setting the BIOS to...

    DIY linux router questions

    If you want both a media server and gateway I'd recommend using VMware ESXi, one VM for the gateway the other one running FreeNAS. As for Zentyal running a media server, it doesn't have one on its website. Another possible solution maybe GeeXboX, which supports Ubuntu and it might run on...

    List Your Favorite GPU

    Geforce 6600 with 256 mb of RAM, despite being slow compared to a 6600 GT it ran Medieval 2 fairly well w/out lighting turned up. BFG Geforce 8800 GTS 512 and it served me very well, until BF 3. I miss this brand. It was a great card even for Bad Company 2; great buy for $230. Sold it to a...

    DIY linux router questions

    You may to check out Zentyal. I used it once for a file server/ domain controller (not in any meaningful way) and it was a piece of cake to set up. It will handle router/firewall duties and can even run a proxy server. Since it is based off of Ubuntu you might be able to install media streaming...

    Microsoft Security Essentials Fails AV-Test Certification

    http://www.techspot.com/guides/202-stay-safe-without-active-antivirus-protection/ I still use MSE and never got any viruses. As always users doing dumb things is the biggest problem. I use the NoScript, Web Of Trust, and of course Adblock Plus add ons for Firefox; these add ons along with...

    Good video recording software?

    The only one of these I used before was Fraps for recording gameplay footage. For converting I used Badaboom (when I had an 8800) to convert it to FLV. Right now I use Any Video Converter.

    Microsoft trains kids

    This must be Microsoft's own version and competition to some of the coder dojos which focus on web development that came up very recently. And as long they're free its a great way to help kids decide their career paths...

    HDD start getting errors.

    It could possibly even be a loose cable; other than that its most likely a problem with the drive, RAM, or PSU as everyone else said.

    xbox 360 controller left random pushes / fire

    I don't know how well Darksiders 2 supports X-box 360 controllers. I recommend you try to use X-padder. It I use it with my X-box 360 controller and it works great for me. For 10$ its worth the price. http://www.xpadder.com/

    HDD raid cloning question

    With RAID arrays you can't swap/replace drives without completely rebuilding your RAID array. I'm pretty sure all the drives in any RAID array need to be the exact same model though I maybe wrong. Though it would be pretty risky you could try resizing a partition that you keep your data on...

    PC keeps freezing.

    Try replacing your CMOS battery. I had a problem with symptoms like yours before and replacing my CMOS battery fixed them. Side note: The time was never off.

    Battlefield 1942 FREE!!!!

    Forgotten Hope 2 is a great WW II mod for BF 2. It is like BF 1942 but more realistic with one shot kills, realistic penetrations, and much more historically accurate maps, and perhaps the best of all 128 player maps. http://www.moddb.com/mods/forgotten-hope-2

    Battlefield 1942 FREE!!!!

    Bout time EA made BF 1942 free. I'm hoping they'll make the expansions free as well. Some of the maps and vehicles in Secret Weapons were and still are awesome notably the Natter rockets and the jetpacks.
