    Keeping mouse cursor inside a Windowed game?

    I'm wondering if there is any method to keeping the mouse cursor within a windowed game, lets take Starcraft 2 for example. I only have one screen and like to play games in windowed mode so I can watch shows/movies right next to it. In a game like SC2, moving the mouse to the border of the...

    Have 8GB of RAM, XP 32 bit detecting 1.91GB

    Too much video RAM eats away at the available RAM in a 32-bit OS?

    Have 8GB of RAM, XP 32 bit detecting 1.91GB

    It's the system in my "System Specs" thing on my profile here, but XP 32 bit, not Windows 7 64-bit. For the record, everything was fine with all sticks of RAM earlier in the day when I was still using Windows 7 64-Bit. Edit: Here's a screenshot of what I'm seeing:

    Have 8GB of RAM, XP 32 bit detecting 1.91GB

    I know that 32-bit operating systems can only detect up to 4GB and tend to show a little less because some gets reserved for other things, but I installed 32-bit XP on a system with 8GB of RAM, and the General tab of System Properties says I only have 1.91GB, and I see something similar in Task...

    How to make mouse cursor move in XP like Windows 7?

    I figured out what was causing it, in the Pointer Options tab, "Enhance pointer precision" was checked, unchecking it made it much better and felt the same as Windows 7.

    How to make mouse cursor move in XP like Windows 7?

    I switched back to Windows XP from Windows 7 recently for a few reasons, I'm having trouble with the mouse cursor though and find it doesn't move exactly the same as it does in Windows 7. It's a little hard to describe, but in Windows 7 I felt like it took less effort to move the cursor around...

    How to force clocks on nVidia cards?

    That's disappointing to here, any idea what might be causing this problem out of the blue? Everything has been pretty much fine up until tonight, no other problems that I can see. As far as the game goes, I play almost everyday and it's been fine and nothing has changed, and no other players...

    How to force clocks on nVidia cards?

    I've been having issues with a game I'm playing, League of Legends, the FPS is dropping randomly in game and I noticed through MSI Afterburner that my core and memory clocks are dropping and fluctuating. I would prefer the clocks stay fixed at 630/1728 respectively (GTX 590) to see if that fixes...

    Crashing/Blue Screens Even After New Reinstall

    I only installed Windows on 1 of the 2 Corsair drives after getting rid of the RAID 0, I should have tried it on the other but I skipped that and installed it on the Intel one I mentioned. I may have been overstating the fact I think there's a problem. It's extremely minor and something I've...

    Crashing/Blue Screens Even After New Reinstall

    I had 2 64GB Corsair SSDs in a RAID 0 array while this was happening. I didn't know what the problem was so I tried dissolving the array and reinstalling Windows again on 1 of the SSD's. It crashed yet again, what I ended up doing was taking both of them out and putting an older Intel SSD I...

    Crashing/Blue Screens Even After New Reinstall

    I have a relatively new PC I built myself about a year ago that's never really had any kinds of issues. It has an i5 2500k not overclocked and the temperatures are fine idle and under load, I have a GTX 590 also never overclocked using the latest non-beta drivers on Windows 7 64 bit. About a...

    Best way to watch videos with another person online?

    I'm in a relationship with someone who has to go back to school very soon and we're not going to see each other for a few months. There's a lot of shows coming out this Fall we both like and we tried using Skype screen sharing to watch a show together, but it doesn't really work that well. I...

    A friend of mine built a new PC and it turns out the GPU I gave him was no good, so he needs to buy one of his own. What is the best performance you can get in the $100-200 price range?

    Odd Bluescreen Issue

    I've never really had to use Driver Sweeper before, how long does it take to do its thing? I ask because someone is using the troubled PC at the moment so I need to know how long it'll take for them to do something else.

    Odd Bluescreen Issue

    Even after uninstalling the previous driver and installing the most up to date one, the computer still gets a BSOD when I turn on the monitor. The power settings are not putting the computer to sleep, merely turning on the monitor after it shuts off is causing the blue screen. This was not...
