Hi /g/ this is a stupid question thread so I have a very stupid question to ask. I have been using Github for only a small amount of time abd have started seeing alot of programs that have no executable file to run them, for example: https://github.com/Partinarel/map-make/tree/master/map_explore/map_explore. I would really appreciate it if someone could explain how to run these or even just point me towards a site that explains it. Thanks and sorry for being stupid.
Is there a laptop manufacturer that won't screw me over? Yeah I know
>not building a nice desktop
But fuck it. My last two laptops both went obsolete because the manufacturer never updated their drivers, and drivers from each individual component manufacturer didn't work. Is there any company that sells something I'll actually be allowed to update two years from now?
I think there is an exe? check this folder:
Is there some sort of an IDE (?) to use python with?
I mean, I'm used to Matlab, and I like having an editor and a command line together, so I can write scripts in the editor, and check the results in the command line and do some quick calculations there also. And I like having to choose my work folder from which I run files etc..
Is there something like this I can run on Linux for python?
Or I have to make it with a code editor (like notepadqq) and the command line?
I've got a laptop hard drive that I want to put in my current PC.
I connected both the power and data SATA cables and I can hear it spin up but it doesn't show up in the drive manager.
Is there anything I'm missing?
yep, EXE is there
In cases where it isn't, you'll notice there's a solution file in
You can download the zip, and open the solution file in Visual Studio. From there, you just compile it yourself and run the output executable.
You're kindof talking about the REPL.
bpython and ipython might help you, though they're not as IDEish. Maybe ipython-notebook? Never used it myself, but heard good things.
When I mount a drive, it is mounted as read-only and is write protected. I can mount the same drive just fine on a different OS, so it isn't a hardware issue. chmod doesn't work because >write protected
remounting as rw doesn't work obviously, fsck doesn't work, etc.
They mount just fine, /etc/fstab is correct, I have no idea what is wrong.
What do I need to look for when shopping for a tablet? I have no idea what makes a tablet good or bad. I just need a smallish one for reading weeb comics, pdf's and watching videos on my commute.
I have no experience with USB 3.0 sticks whatsoever. How do they perform on USB 2.0 port? Will this drive deliver 30mb/sec writing speed on USB 2.0 port?
you have to keep in mind that the advertised speeds are only in very specific situations and usually just in short bursts. a 3.0 drive on a 2.0 port should be as fast as a 2.0 drive on a 2.0 port.
>you have to keep in mind that the advertised speeds are only in very specific situations and usually just in short bursts.
Yeah I know that. I saw the reviews below that states 40-60mb/sec writing speed. But, I think they use USB 3.0 port.
>a 3.0 drive on a 2.0 port should be as fast as a 2.0 drive on a 2.0 port.
Thanks. I know in theory USB 2.0 can be able to deliver 60mb/sec speeds. Hope it performs great.
I have ordered an i5 6600 with an h110 mobo, is there a way to make it run to 3.9NigHz (turbo clockspeed) with all four cores activated? And are there other ways to slightly OC it besides the bclk way?
I need help with a solution for my internet connection. Our router is in our garage, while my pc is in a room on the opposite side of the house one floor up. Can't change the location of modem/router (it's one device) because of reasons. Now, whenever we park the car in the garage, my internet speeds become absolute garbage. I go from a solid 2mB/s donwload speed to about 250 kB/s.
How can I make the signal stronger? Or, alternatively, can I run a cable from the modem/router box to the hallway and have the wifi signal go out from there with something? I can run a cable to the hallway/ the space between the ground floor and the first floor no problem, but I can't reach my room without drilling a bunch of holes and getting a stupid long cable.
how do those work exactly? Just to clarify, it's not the signal that's a problem. It never falls away, I've got three out of 5 bars at the moment. It's just that the speed becomes garbage. Just saying in case I wasn't clear.
Is pale moon (or some other firefox-like) compatible with all addons for firefox? Any noteworthy exceptions?

Is there a way to blacklist packages in Zypper/PackageKit?
For example, to prevent the utterly useless shit package K3B from being reinstalled during an update, how do I blacklist it after purging it in a cleansing light of purification?
There's a difference between fidelity of the connection and the signal strength.
The powerline adapter uses the existing wiring in your home to create a direct connection between your modem/router and whatever you plug the other end into. There's many different options, but the basic idea is two boxes - one plugs into the wall and hardwires into the modem/router, the other end plugs into the wall and either hardwires into a single device, hardwires into multiple devices, or hardwires into a single device and also provides wi-fi. You won't have to worry about the car ruining the fidelity of the connection because you'll effectively have run a hardwire ethernet connection to the device.
What language should I learn for web development besides JS and PHP?

Sweet, that might be exactly what I need. I just hope it odesn't ened to be on the same electric thingamajing? Look, I'm a retard when it comes to electrical stuff, I just know that when the circuit breaker for the garage/kitchen/living room trips, my room ont he first floor isn't affected. Will that be a problem, you think?
Not at all. As long as the router and your room are on the same panel (hint: they are) you'll get signal. The only caveat is that both boxes absolutely need to be plugged directly into the wall, not into a surge protector or any form of an extension cord - it'll dilute the signal and fuck everything up.

I want some kind of torrent network in wich you can choose video only as you wish, and audio only, and have them sync somehow.
Finding a semi-obscure movie in english and looking out for it dubbed is a pain in the ass, so the video with no audio combined with the other language audio file would be nice.
Does something like that even exist?
Well, that's sweet. I don't have a socket directly in the wall next to the router, but that's nothing a few meters of cable won't solve to get to the opposite wall. Thanks a lot for your help, glad I came here to ask about this.
what is the highest performing thinkpad that doesn't fall under the "new" category?
Is there any way to "make them faster"? I have zero experience with laptops and I was given two r500s and a r61 and they are a slow as dick.
What do you mean with "new"? If you mean the ones without the shitty chiclet keyboards, then t420/t520/w520/x220
The last ones that were actually made by IBM were the t43 or so, wouldn't be an improvement if you want a fast CPU.
>two r500s and a r61 and they are a slow as dick.
Well, two of the main reasons why /g/ likes Thinkpads are build quality and Linux compatibility. Obviously they won't be slow once you install a proper OS.
Right. So I installed the latest Ubuntu on a Toshiba Satellite laptop. I did it via DVD in an external USB-connected disk drive.
The laptop had Windows 8 pre-installed so obviously prior to installation I had to change the BIOS/UEFI settings. Disabled Secure Boot. Placed USB first on boot order, etc.
Finally worked after a few restarts. Installed Ubuntu; opted to Erase Disk rather than install it alongside Windows Boot Manager. Seemed to all go smoothly.
Upon disconnecting the USB disk drive and restarting, came up with "Reboot and select proper boot device or blah blah blah etc." so I restarted and went into BIOS to change the boot order so it was (from top to bottom) HDD, USB, ODD, LAN, and then set System Config to CSM boot. SATA settings don't seem to be listed.
Restarted except it came up with an extra paragraph (pic related) with PXE and something about media cables. I also tried with Secure Boot enabled as well as disabled. No change. It's not booting Ubuntu from the HDD. When the USB disk drive is connected with the LiveCD in, it launches the Ubuntu "Try or Install" menu. I tried a bunch of stuff I found on Google but it doesn't apply to this.
How can I fix this? pls help /g/uys
My dumb ass is trying to set up a Plex / torrenting server. I've built it. I've installed Debian on it because a friend told me to. Now I have no idea what the fuck is going on.
I'm trying to get remote desktop set up so I can move it off my desk and down to where my entertainment center is, and it's not working. I installed xrdp, and I'm on my Windows 10 laptop, and when I try to remote access it I get pic related, with an X for a cursor.
Am I just a retard? Should I just scrap this and start over with a different OS? Because I also can't get Plex to install for some reason.
So I'm dumb and dont know how to tell what the issue is but im 80% sure its my hard drive. My computer has been having issues for just over a year with freezing and crashes and such, I also sometimes get boot disk errors, but over all it ran just fine but I went away for a few days and came back and booted my computer up. It took 10 minutes to boot to login screen and when I logged in for 40 minutes it just showed my desktop and wouldnt open anything. If I tried to open something it would freeze for 5 minutes or so. It took 2 hours for the computer to not freeze the moment I touched it and I still cant open more than 2 programs. My friend has been telling me to get a new hard drive for months but I ignored him. This is my hard drive right? Im thinking of going to msy tomorrow and getting a new one. Also im making a boot usb for windows 7. Is that all I need to start setting my pc up again?
Oh shit. Here is pic related.
Try these, reboot after each:
Disable network boot.
Check if hdd is visible in bios.
Check for other obscure bios settings.
If nothing works try reinstalling, if reinstalling doesn't work try switching from UEFI to legacy (Ubuntu fucked up for me on UEFI before).
So disabling network boot would mean changing it from CSM to UEFI right? The BIOS menu for this computer is so bare, it seems to be missing a lot of stuff that a lot of people mention, like SATA port settings.
The HDD is visible in the boot order. It goes HDD, USB, ODD, LAN.
Someone mentioned something about me accidentally installing Ubuntu or GRUB to the USB drive instead of the HDD, but I don't see how that is in any way possible.
No, CSM is compatibility support module (I think that's the right acronym), it's for older operating systems. Switch that to UEFI and then reinstall, since somehow GRUB setup seems to have fucked up.
Should i use Deluge? not sure about it this time, what should i use as my BitTorrent Client i have qbit torrent on one of the pcs but not sure what to use now
>inb4 qbstalled maymay
that's why i'm asking
Hey, I want to build my PC. The only thing that matters to me the most is multi-monitor support. I need support for at least four monitors at once.
1 HDMI, and 3 I don't care what, so long as I can use three 1080p monitors together. The ultimate end call setup being three monitors on the desk, and a long hdmi cord running to my TV.
If I buy two graphics cards and SLI them or whatever, does that let me use all the ports from both? As in, if I buy two cards each having 2 hdmi ports, does that mean I could use all four at once?
(Also, on a side note but who cares, on my prebuilt desktop I can't use all the ports at once. If I use the ports from the motherboard and not the graphics card, the computer refuses to start. Why?)
It monolith, which is in direct violation of the UNIX philosophy (do one thing and do it good). People also claim to have trouble with it but I've personally never had any issues.
I'd try with secure boot off first.
That sounds weird, here's how I setup boot priority on my machine:
3+) everything else
When the install is done simply turn off the computer, remove usb and then turn on.
That's what I did, but it came up with the Reebot with proper boot device screen.
If anything, it seems like it has wiped my hard disk and hasn't installed anything; so I'm gonna install it again and see. If it still says that Windows Boot Manager is installed, I'm going to kick a baby.
well since i changed to a better card there is some kind of screen tear/jump at the button like when you change channel on old tv-s
only when using a tablet emulator tho, windowed mode on the top of the screen
Bumping this because I really need help. I feel so lost that I think starting over is the best way to go. The problem is I'm entirely unfamiliar with any OS that's not Windows, so the learning curve is pretty steep, although I do feel like I'm getting the hang of the console.
Sounds like an emulator problem to me.
Try deleting every partition and then creating new ones.
No idea, disable that permission if you can (I think newer versions of android can do this).
>If I buy two graphics cards and SLI them or whatever, does that let me use all the ports from both? As in, if I buy two cards each having 2 hdmi ports, does that mean I could use all four at once?

I'm betting it does start, but you get no video output because the GPU's port is set as default output.
Checked the disk for defects. None found. Can't be an incomplete installation. Unless it's something to do with the external RW disk drive - but I doubt it; it's brand new and fully detected.
Resolution is now important than size there. With a retina display, is fine. Without, doable but a bit tight to even be comfy. All depends on your programming environment of choice though. CLI takes up a lot less real estate than xcode.
If it's only the emulator with that issue then it still seems like an emulator fault to me. Maybe record a webm so we can see what happens.
Nuke everything and reinstall.
I was looking for a cheap tablet to read comics and watch video on the train, so I was thinking of buying a kindle fire. Only apparently I can't order one from amazon.com here in belgium. .co.uk, .fr and .de also don't allow it for some bizarre reason. So, any other tablets of a similar low price that aren't complete garbage?
Okay, mega stupid question but this process has made me paranoid.
When you install Ubuntu from a LiveCD, asaumably and by default, it installs it to the hard drive, right?
Also, I just started reinstalling now. It said there were no detectable OS on the computer. This either means the installation is fucked or it just cleared my disk and didn't install. Ubuntu is a lazy fuck.
Microshit website seems to be lacking of downloads for:
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5

There are no stupid questions in /sqt/
I haven't installed Ubuntu in ages but it should prompt you where you want it installed.
If it fails again, just switch from UEFI to CSM and then it should work.
I've been through the install process twice and it hasn't once asked which device to install the OS or startup to.
It mentioned that the new partitions will be installed to the "disks". So I assume that it installs it to the HDD by default.
I'm reinstalling it, still in UEFI mode, just so I know it wasn't an install issue. If that doesn't work, I'll reinstall it in CSM mode.
Btw I'm the original poster of that and I didn't bump myself. Pic related.

I'm going along a book and I figured out how to delete repeating characters in an array (comparing each character and adding new characters in a new array btw), but it says to use two functions for searching and deleting. How does that go? I guess there would be one to search for a repeated character, but i'm not sure how the deleting process goes.
Third install. Did it in CSM boot mode and it worked. Booted up as a normal desktop with the external disk drive disconnected. No issue so far.
Thanks to everyone that replied and helped.
I built a computer for my parents in 2009 using an AMD Phenom II x3 720 Black Edition CPU and 4GB of RAM. Should I just upgrade the CPU to a 1100T and throw in another 4GB of RAM or build them a whole new computer?
I recently installed a 980Ti in my case. I wasn't sure if it was inserted all the way in, but when I turned on my computer, the fans started spinning and the lights were on. So it must have been plugged in, right? Also, whats the best way to avoid sag?
I can't find anywhere people uploading just audio from movies. Besides, I thought about that when my computer and internet bandwith were both shit, so the least I had to download the better, and I had to use a dvd player with a USB port, so no playing a muted video and a separate audio at the same time
Anyone have any external HD recommendations?

You could burn a iso to a usb drive and go in. If you're just looking for data restoration, and not fixing the os install. Just get a linux iso and go in and restore your data to a safe place.
There used to be a windows repair disk you could burn(xp era) you might want to check for that.
Wouldn't it be cool if there was a software that shared captchas screencaps, and so anyone on the world could answer some of them, and in exchange a third person could answer the same amount of the second guy's captchas and so on?

i dont know the name
just called it incorrect startup
Oh, wow, I thought it was so simple and useful but never actually find one. Last time I talked about it years ago on a chat, everybody laughed and basically said "lol, no one would do a favor to u on the internet"
That's what I was going to do originally.
Then I went to my computer junk pile and found a little 2.5, 320GB drive.
Gonna blank it and find some sort of case for it, and I'm sure I'll need a SATA to USB converter.
So I have this MSI 970A-G46 that refuses to boot, and I have no speaker to listen to POST codes.
It has all fans running but no lights on keyboard or mouse.
I tried switching RAMs, checking everything and still had the same problem.
I left it disconnected overnight and when I woke up, it booted just fine.
After a couple reboots it stopped booting.
Then I tried clearing CMOS and it booted after a couple tries, then I reseted the BIOS settings and it stucked again after the next reboot.
Is the mobo fucked up? Please tell me it isn't, I can't afford one right now.
Also, I have to boot with HDMI, I have it connected to a TV that goes black if it is on VGA mode and doesn't detect any input right away. But this is a problem of the tv that is fucking itself up too.
heres the bluescreen, not sure if this helps
lots of mumbo jumbo to me
So it sounds like hardware.
is it properly vented?
You can always just take teh harddrive out and use your new rig to pull data from it. If its your daily use, im not sure what else to tell you at this point, other then maybe taking it a part and checking for anything out of the ordinary
The build thread is dead and I made a few changes.
Still befuddled on how to handle this, especially the graphics card and power supply (bronze is still decent, right? MicroCenter has no silver ones for some reason). At the very least I can get a real monitor later and just use the TV until then. As much as I like the sound of mechanical keyboards, a regular one will have to do.
its a really old laptop that never had problems before, i appreciate the help but i think im just gonna have a small funeral for it
my last part comes on thursday

Don't use AMD for CPU. Trust me on this. Pic very fucking related. Upgrading to this CPU soon, and you should use it or the 6320 if you're on a budget: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-intel-core-i3-6100-review
Yeah? Is there a way I can tell for sure, like a test I can run? When I first booted up the computer it took 30 minutes to connect to the internet and just clicking my mouse would freeze it for 5 minutes. Its running pretty normal now I think but its been on for 6 hours.
So I looked at my wifi connection settings on Windows 8 and I told it to "Show usage data" and I can watch it grow at a rate of about 0.01-0.03 MB/s. If I have a bunch of tabs open in chrome (all finished loading) sometimes it will increase at like 0.2-0.5 MB/s. if I just leave the computer on overnight it says I've had ~1 gigabyte of estimated bandwidth usage on my wifi adapter.
Is this just the router and the computer throwing packets at eachother over LAN, and my actual internet bandwidth is not really being used? Because whenever I look at my usage in any kind of network/bandwidth monitor, it says I am only using a few hundred bytes every few seconds (probably from teamviewer or something sending keep-alive packets or something, I guess?)
I mean does this slowly-increasing Windows "Estimated Usage" figure come from bandwidth you're using on the internet? Or might it just be harmless stuff on my home network?
General and 1080p gaming. Tried for an $800 budget and more or less failed it. I still have time before I ask for this stuff so more thought and criticism will be necessary. Originally wanted 16GB of memory but obviously that's double the price of the current memory now.
>>DDR3 will skyrocket soon so I'd recommend 4x4GB just to be safe in the long run
I'm only future-proofing on the power supply. Last thing I want is the damn thing wrecking the parts or exploding.
>>no reason to have an optical drive
Well I need to install Windows 7 and my games somehow. Only reason why the former is not on the list is due to the absurd price. ISO's in the USB stick right now and I intend on burning that to a CD in the future. Yes, I know you can configure the stick into a bootable drive and have the BIOS start on that but I prefer CDs.
>>case is way overkill
I know, but the cheaper case lacks a bay for the optical drive. Much too weird to have a PC without one.
>The overall price seems high for an AM3+ ATX build.
Starting to think the same thing. Only went with AMD because its less expensive then Intel. Granted, I know someone who build their PC with an AMD CPU in mind and so far, no disasters related to it. I think the graphics card I chose might be overdoing it. I just want a smooth framerate at 1080p.
My current laptop has an i5, but I don't think it means much do to an essentially non-existent GPU. See pic.
I'm just saying, AMD CPUs are no where near as good as people make them out to be. AMD cards are fucking great, but their chips are just... bleh. There's no reason for it. Please don't make the same mistake I did. Please. If I could do it all over again, here's the build I'd use: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Q3QyjX
Look up templates for what you need to accomplish (book publishing, resume writing, etc.).

That's the smartest way to learn, if you have a single purpose of using Latex, IMO.
>even the ones that cracked are probably safe
Yeah, but they'll leak when they defrost, so I threw them away.
Also, I froze my mayonaise, and it looks a little weird (oil is kinda separated and shit). Is that safe? This shit has been accidentally frozen for approximately a month.
How can I find out the exact root of the problem? I have tried WireShark but I cant come to any meaningful conclusions from looking at the packets. There seems to be a lot going on when I'm not even running anything though. I even set my network as a metered connection and the estimated usage still crawls up.
Is there any way I can figure out what application is sending or requesting the packets using Wireshark? Because like I said every third-party network monitoring program I've tried says nothings really going on
if you defrost it in a container, you have it in a container
technically, that's how you fucking use an egg, by leaking the stuff out of the shell in the first place
the only thing you can't do with it is possibly hard boil
for the mayo though, it's perfectly safe
there is no eutectic point requirement for foods, so frozen stuff is completely safe to eat
they may not be in the original texture, but only some foods are buggered due to that (ice cream, instant foods), and even then it's still completely safe
i'm hankering for some eggs right now, but i got neet'd for a month, since i'm on school break, and most of my nourishment comes from the scholarship-sponsored canteen food
You are given two eggs, and access to a 100-storey building. Both eggs are identical. The aim is to find out the highest floor from which an egg will not break when dropped out of a window from that floor. If an egg is dropped and does not break, it is undamaged and can be dropped again. However, once an egg is broken, that’s it for that egg.
If an egg breaks when dropped from floor n, then it would also have broken from any floor above that. If an egg survives a fall, then it will survive any fall shorter than that.
The question is: What strategy should you adopt to minimize the number egg drops it takes to find the solution?. (And what is the worst case for the number of drops it will take?)

Typical JESUS OH LAWDY intel fag.
Not thing is wrong with amd, HURR DURR MY SINGLE THREAD PERFORMANCE.Nothing uses single cores at all, in a world of multicore, multile threaded games.
Ditch the amd graphics card, they have SHITTY driver support(windows AND linux). Nvidia has 0DAY LAUNCH support for games.
Dont listen to this delusional faggot, he must have been in a build thread and got his feelings hurt.
I honestly never used Logical Increments. I would just use the same things you were going to originally, but just sub the CPU, mobo, and RAM out. It'd look something like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/DhckVn
I swapped the case out for one I can personally vouch for. I use the N200 and it's fantastic, and the N400 is just a bigger version of it.
I just got my first 144hz monitor. I'm currently running a 7870. Although it is not the most powerful, it ru s what I need just fine (BF4 on medium\ high at 80-120 fps) I'm currently running the monitor at 144hz. Should I adjust it down to 12phz since nothing I play I reach 144 fps?
>>Ditch the amd graphics card, they have SHITTY driver support(windows AND linux). Nvidia has 0DAY LAUNCH support for games.
Ditch the R9 380X? Its the only GPU in the Superb tier but in the event that I do intend on going down a tier in terms of motherboard and CPU (seems to be a lot of AMD vs Intel flamewars around here), would the GTX 960 do?
Well shit, a case with a optical drive bay (I assume that's what 5.25'' means) that WON'T break the bank! Thanks!
I'll make a seperate list with mostly the same stuff, only replacing the CPU, GPU, case and motherboard. I was mainly going by which parts are available at a nearby store. Want to get these fast once my birthday comes.
I'm build a pc and have a decision.
I'm on a budget, and at the moment I am going with a i5-4460 on a Z97 mobo. Then down the line I could get a K processor and do some overclock.
But should I go for a i5-6400 on a Z170 mobo instead? Is it worth the price increase? And the DDR4?
From what I read the performance increase is not that great.
Planning on mirroring two sets of two disks for data and media on winblows server 2012 and storage spaces.
Refs or ntfs? Only thing putting me off refs is that I can't just pull a drive and read it on other machines because refs.
Any time, anon. I'd also suggest keeping the 380x. The 960/970 isn't as good as the 380/390. The only thing of Nvidia's that is undoubtedly better than AMD's is the 950 vs the 370
i dont know what your shit is about tiers is but it sounds irrelevent.
there are no "tiers" you can mix what the fuck ever hardware you want as long as it supprots your motherboard. .Look it up about their support, if you're just gaming on it you're gunna want to play launch titles without having your shit be slow.
If you want to spend 2-4x the price for an intel, go the fuck ahead, that what you'r realy regret when you have the same performance for less with an amd.AMD dosent make a new socket every fucking month, so it's more expensive then am3/am3+ which has been out forever. This is the intel gimmick
Fall for it or not
How do I fix the flashing "_" error on a new install of mint? Is it the grub loader or something? I can't update or anything on a live usb. Sorry if that was vague I'm new to linux, though I've done plenty of searching for answers online to no avail.
For whatever reason, in the middle of syslog this shit repeats itself a lot:Jan 12 16:04:48 server dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on br0 to 192.168.0.1 port 67
Jan 12 16:04:48 server dhclient: send_packet: Operation not permitted
Jan 12 16:04:48 server dhclient: dhclient.c:2243: Failed to send 300 byte long packet over fallback interface.
I don't have port 67 open in iptables. Should I open destination port outbound to the gateway address? I don't see why this error appears when I have a DHCP static lease on the router for the virtual server and dedicated server (different private IPs mind you).
I'm having trouble playing 1080p videos in VLC. Online I read to increase the file caching to a larger value but even at 10,000 milliseconds the videos are still lagging. I downloaded MPC and playing the video worked just fine. Is there any way to fix this in VLC or should I just use MPC?
>>i dont know what your shit is about tiers is but it sounds irrelevent.
Nothing's finalized. Making two lists to see which is actually worth it. Who knows, I'll probably go with AMD. Its just far too confusing to choose since the line is split between the two around these parts.
And gaming will be light. Much more bothered by the laptop's limited space. Just want to leave >>52386789 behind (see pic).
yeah, but shit if I go with 6500 I will only be able to get a H170 chip so no future plans for getting a K processor.
But now thinking, how important OC is anyways. I might just sacrifice the future plan and just go with Skylake
Lost a ton of data in my last attempt to dualboot Windows 8.1 and Linux, so I'm going to ask a question here. Is it possible to dualboot Debian/Linux Mint and Windows 8.1 on the same HDD? I noticed the Debian installer didn't make note of any partitions on my hard drive (when I had partitions), and the Linux Mint installer did not allow me to partition my hard drive (had a field day with these), nor designate a drive before installation. I feel like I'm missing part of the process here. Has anyone had luck with Debian/Windows 8.1 or Linux Mint/8.1?
Also, what's with the MBR getting fucked after installing Linux Mint on my hard drive? Is this a result of human error or what? Never had that happen before. Had a dead system for a little while as a result.
Thats the fucking most hilarious thing i have ever heard.Why spend money according to it?
You ways as well get an alienware then,if you're limiting your self to this arbitrary list.
nigga i can build you a 300-500 $ rig that does "light gaming" with a fuck ton of data.
"light gaming" is moot as its different per person.Name games you want to play
Tried different versions, same thing. Even wiped my settings to see if they were the culprit, but nothing.
Yes, it's enabled. I tried changing the output from Automatic to DirectX/OpenGL/whatever, didn't help either.
My computer is a few years old but since MPC can play the videos, the problem clearly isn't because my graphics card can't handle 1080p.
why does steam say I'm downloading at only 7.9 mbps when windows indicates I'm using 10x that speed? Is steam's measurement of download speed just way off or is windows?
what >>52387853 said. I'm very new at this and don't want to pay for the wrong part or cheap out on the PSU.
>Name games you want to play
Fallout 3 (also have New Vegas but there's no space to actually install it; 4 can wait)
Artificial Academy 2
Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth
TERA Online (sparingly, and on the lowest of settings)
Lately when I power on my computer, the chassis fans will make one hell of a noise. They don't appear to spin more than usual, just make a lot more noise. The thing is that if I power off the computer and power it on again BEFORE the fans stop spinning, my computer will boot and the sound level of the fans will be at normal level. Any idea why this could be happening?
your link speed under task manager is not the same as your current speed.
link speed is what your network card can do under the right conditions.
you are not getting, nor will ever get 1Gbps
steam is correct.
>I don't know what your shit is about tiers, you can mix what the fuck ever hardware you want
It's called bottlenecks. Yes, you can mix good components with shitty ones, but most of the time that's a fucktarded idea. If you have, say, an awesome video card but a shit processor, or a great processor but shit amount of RAM, your performance will still suck.
LI has just done the research for you so you don't have to. They've found out how to get the best possible performance for any given budget, it's a helpful guide.
Depends on your needs, what will you be using your PC for?
Sadly I suspect it's the good ole "gaming and some video/audio editing", in which case you want to prioritize GPU over CPU.
Come up with a budget and a build draft on pcpp and we'll take it from there.
Pulled this thing out of a fucked up printer.
Is this a CN1 connection? How the fuck do I reuse this in my desktop and/or other device.
Seems a waste to bin it if I can turn it into a powerful wifi dongle on the cheap.
>Is it possible to dualboot Debian/Linux Mint and Windows 8.1 on the same HDD
>what's with the MBR getting fucked after installing Linux Mint
windows and linux bootloaders are not compatible. linux bootloader can boot windows AND linux, whereas the windows bootloader can only boot Windows
so the MBR was not fucked, only changed. If you installed windows after your linux distro, it would indeed 'be fucked' and you'd have to reinstall grub

all I have is Windows firewall and the firewall built in to my shitty early-802.11n Belkin router. should I get a software firewall?
I tried a port monitoring program, pic related. I got Steam, Nvidia, and Chrome always with constant 'established' connections, as well as Apple device service & Bonjour service (both via svchost/System). Nvidia/Geforce Experience I told to close, though.
I just happened to take this screenshot right when explorer was having some random established connections, does that mean something?
What can I really do with this information? It seems to be using bandwidth at a rate of about 12 to 25KB/s. I guess that isn't much, but I dont know why it has to happen at all
What do you mean, sadly? Sometimes, that's just what people want to do with their time. If that's the case it's at least better that they're realistic about it and get a well-suited machine for it, instead of spending more money on one that's better suited to work tasks that they'll never actually do.
Hmm, that is light. Even the case and motherboard are small. Only advantage to that is energy saving, right? HDD is okay too but I also have a SSD in mind, and I don't think I see much use in DDR4. DDR3 is still good, isn't it? Furthermore, need a wireless network adapter. Finally, I have that CPU selected, except its 4170. Any significant difference between that and 6100?
xwiimote and libxwiimote1
Wii U Pro Controller
QJoyPad (issue existed before installing, persists afterwards)
Trying to use this as a game controller, but the left-stick (which I'm using for the mouse) "snaps" to whatever it considers the neutral position. Turning is really juttery and sometimes I can go nearly 180 degrees and then get snapped back around.
Any thing to fix this, or is Wii U Pro poorly suited for gamepad use?
You can BCLK OC that skylake i3 with that RAM, getting roughly 8320 perfomance if it falls behind your needs (which should not). 4170 + h91/h81 is cool too but you might get more of the skylel i3 down the road.
SSDs are not mandatory and you can always get a 120GB for boot later. Not my build but that actually looks pretty spot on your needs.
Go to disk management, and see if it shows up. Rescan the disks if necessary. Another option would be running disk part thru command prompt, which I find to be faster than disk management.
what exactly happens once microsoft detects your copy of windows is non-genuine? do i just not receive updates after that point? is that all?
no matter what combination of updates i remove i still get discovered and ive tried just not updating but apparently anything which utilizes encryption such as ftp and mumble need some ssl update which fucks my shit up. ive tried going on linux, wine almost works perfectly but then some games i really like are fucked up in very small yet annoying ways like in quake live my inputs all suffer from input lag so i figured it would just be better i stuck with windows
I had a serious virus last year when I installed an extremely malicious mod for the then-new GTA5-PC, so I got suspicious (like now) and blocked akamai both in my hosts file and on my router, for similar reasoning as in your post.
Then I went to the Steam website and there were no pictures anywhere, just broken links. It turns out Akamai is a huge cloud hosting company that tons of companies use for webhosting.
The guy who made the virus-mod sold all my old TF2 hats using some background virus module that the mod downloaded. I reformatted and changed all my passwords, but that asshole hacker stole tens of thousands of dollars from dumbass youtubers who installed the mod for their cuh-razy GTA5 let's-play videos
>SSDs are not mandatory and you can always get a 120GB for boot later. Not my build but that actually looks pretty spot on your needs.
I want the SSD first and foremost so I won't have to hassle about somehow moving an entire OS from the HDD at a later date.
I'm learning as I go. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to look up both pros and cons of a smaller build.
I splorged on the hd in my build(amd) i dont know your storage needs,so i threw in a tb
If you want a smaller one a 1tb or a 2tb you can still fit in a 120gb SSD within your budget
I got a letter in the mail from charter to stop torrenting and I figured that I should probably do something about my lack of internet protection. Im fine with paying a fee if that's what you mean, but I care the most about protecting who can see my traffic.
Yeah, just gaming. Aiming for 1080p/60fps. Not even bothered about 1440p+ or VR.
My budget is €800-€950 with a monitor.
This is my original list with i5-4460:
what the fuck is the deal with all this explorer-to-akamai bullshit? Is microsoft seriously doing >>52386795 or uploading my hard drive to the NSA? See
DDR4 is the way of the future. This leaves you room to upgrade your CPU as well as your GPU. Don't let the name micro ATX fool you either; it's still plenty big. The Silencio is a bit smaller than my N200, but it's still going to be plenty big for your needs. Only reason I didn't suggest miniITX is price. Fucking $170 for a mobo that supports RAM speeds higher than 2133mhz. Crazy shit. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pXxfNG
He dosent need ddr4 you fucking retard lol
ddr3-1600 is WAY more then enough for what he plans on gaming with, and way better then anything you need for facebook/bshittposting
fuck dd4 unless you're rendering shit, or encoding 4k
Hey guys, so I bought the Poweramp app for my G3 phone. I have a pair of Seinheiser Momentum 2.0s and I like to listen to rap and hip hop, how do I manipulate equalizer to get the best sound?
The idea is to have a 120GB SSD for Windows 7 and a 1TB HDD for everything else.
what >>52388712 said. Unless I dabble in Source Film Maker, no thanks on DDR4. Anyways, I forgot to mention that I'm mainly inspired both Logical Increments and my brother's build (which was also inspired by Logical Increments). Difference is that he uses AMD. Making a second list with Intel to compare the prices. Finally, again I want as few parts delivered as possible. If there's a PC store near me, I make it a point to buy from there for convenience's sake...provided the products are good. I still have to actually visit the place. The website alone isn't enough.
Anyone had any experience with MicroCenter?
i give up on this nigger before 10'd.
the shit you care about are irrelevant, if your brother has no original ideas or concepts on how to build a rig, thats on him for being a faggot. You have multiple people telling you the shit you're going on about is irrelevant, no site with a "building tier" can be taken seriously.
You stole an hour and a half from me, and you're still being a fucking retard
good job and fuck off
>Are hard drives still as sensitive to heat than they were largely believed to be?
I'm constantly seeing SFF cases where 3.5" drives are being shoved behind motherboard trays, with little to no air directed towards them.
>Would a modern external drive be any less reliable than an internal one, barring any catastrophic damage?
>Is a pre-packaged NAS any better or worse than a diskless one?
It doesn't matter if it fits in the same slot if the motherboard doesn't support DDR4
What laptop would you recommend in the <£300 (~$450 but things are usually around 1.3x more expensive over here) for a student for note taking and some MATLAB/programming work? Perhaps the occasional shitty tier game like binding of isaac too
Generally speaking, most people prefer either
