You could get the Alienware 17 R3 on your budget, but it's heavy af. Plus people who own alienware are faggots.

This is still good, and portable enough to qualify as a laptop. Little dated, but not badly.

Reposting from older thread

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.

Expect it to perform like a slightly old 4 core laptop with 2GB of RAM running Linux. Aside from the availability of GPIO pins, and how the bootloader works, these SBCs work just like other computers.

To launch it in graphical mode from the terminal use a wack.
e.g. after setting up the alias:
"editor" will launch in CLI mode.
"\editor" will launch in GUI mode.

I dont really care about the video quality that much but rather i need something like an action camera(that is easily mountable on the dash or what ever) but it needs the ability to attach external microphone input as i already have a decent mic and an extension cable for recording the audio outside the car.

im more interested in audio quality hence why i have an external mic but i just need something to plug it into.

Yeah, just check the line voltage is the same as the voltage specified somewhere on your laptop, generally under the battery and the amperage is equal to or exceeds the required amperage.

Most laptop chargers are 19V 3.42 A and most laptop requirements are below 3.42 ampers.

If you are too retarded to follow these instructions then by all means buy another one.

An ancient IBM prebuilt my relatives have is acting weird.

The BIOS took a long time, often minutes, to pass away, it wasn't from the BIOS settings, I checked, nothing abnormal.

As for Windows (XP), after the BIOS passes away, it gets you the welcome screen but with some error and after a long pause (I couldn't see it due to what I will say soon).

It kept getting stuck at the Welcome screen, with no sign of doing anything at all, just pausing there, no error or anything.

I got a Linux distro on a USB drive, just trying to get whatever data they have on the system, and format it to a clean state.

The distro won't boot, gave me errors (Error 8000 and something with sectors if I remember correctly), it worked well on another laptop, though.

I flashed it again, but now the whole system doesn't seem to run, it turns on, but I get nothing on the display, it and the VGA cable work as I tried it with another system, and I can hear BIOS beeps if I screw around with the RAM sticks, so something is still running, partially at least.

What could be the problem? Motherboard gave up?
tl;dr: System takes a long time to do anything, keeps failing progressively, now won't post.

Yep.

It's all bubble-in.

Get a playing slip at a participator, bubble in what numbers you want, hand it to the cashier when done. Each slip has 5 plays (A-E), they're $2 each. If you don't wanna do the bubble ins, you can just tell the cashier to get do a Quick Play, the machine will choose the numbers for you. The playslips have all the instructions in the back, or you can just ask the cashier.

Quick Play is the fastest way though. Go in, ask for a number of Quick Plays for Powerball, pay, leave with ticket, pray to RNGesus. Not recommended if you don't trust machines to choose for you.

Search your soul, maybe you're not cut up for STEM at all, and that's fine, doesn't mean you're stupid.

Ironically one of the hardest parts of growing up is all the freedom, no one there to tell you what to do, but everyone expecting you do SOMETHING; I hope and expect you have a family that's got your back. So get out there and make a man of yourself.

Mind you, whichever path you choose it takes a lot of effort and sacrifice to make it, so might as well be actually connected to what you do.

You're not getting memed on. You're just a mental midget who can't see the forest for the trees. Computer science isn't about "learning a language." Scheme is an effective teaching tool precisely because its minimal syntax divorces the important fundamental concepts from the meaningless cruft.

If your idea of being USEFUL is writing poorly-constructed enterprise tier garbage and fending off Indians for your low-paying codemonkey position, then by all means "learn C++."

Hello my friends. The PSU on my pc broke so I purchased a new one and hooked up all the connections to their appropriate spots. When I attempted to turn on the pc the power lights come on and the system fans spin but i don't receive a signal on my monitor and I don't hear any beeps coming from my motherboard. This PC previously worked fine on my other PSU without any issues so I'm assuming I just have something connected improperly. Any suggestions?

Things I have tried:
1. using a different ram slot/different ram card
2. unplugging any excess devices. (hard drive, optical drive)
3. Google

Also my previous PSU was 400W and my current one is 600W, dunno if that could cause an issue. If all else fails i'll just have to waste ~$100 taking it to a repair shop tomorrow.

Preferably an i7 skylake. I don't know this for a fact but I'm assuming the processor is soldered to the MOBO. I have options for BGA rework so I'd like to address compatibility only.

Instead of manually managing memory (think C++ new and delete, or malloc), the garbage collector automatically handles this. It is not as performant, as it requires your application to pause for a moment as the GC scans memory and decides what to delete. Unless you are writing something like the JVM, you probably don't need to know how to implement it, and modern GC's can be very smart and advanced in terms of the hueristics they use.

Also, all this information could have been found by going to the wikipedia page m8.

That picture is dumb. Web dev in assembly is no harder than web dev in C, which isn't *that* uncommon. More tedious to write, sure. Probably slower too, generally any large application written in assembly is slower than the same program written in C and optimized by the compiler. Although they do have optimizing assemblers these days which might offset that a bit.

Literally 0 difference, depending on the case. External HDDs often have smaller form factors, but in general they are exactly the same.

What do you want to do?

Low level:
You will only know how a said architecture works, for example x86. Learn low level if you want to build robots, get into Arduino, gpio, shit like that
>>
>>52389865
Fuck hotkeys.

High level: You can throw together fast scripts, bots, you can write GUI applications, database applications, CLI apps, smartphone programs, whatever.

Anything that matters when it comes to making money. But then again, there are all kind of high level languages. Like if you already know Java and you want to do Android, you have to learn which libraries people currently use, about how to deal with permissions, how to do stuff.

>>52397526

Negligible.
I made a new Windows Power profile and set my CPU to max 99%.

This disables Turbo.
I have not noticed any difference in games - in terms of FPS/performance, and temps are damn low.
The things that require Turbo for longer periods are basically just shit tier routines/shit code. Like how Black Ops 3 runs CPU on 100% for no reason.

There is also an application that lets you select the profiles from tray, that's how I switch to "Balanced" when I do heavy coding/VM and I need that extra few %.
>>
>>52396628
Unless it features a dGPU - which hybrids never do, you won't game. Even the best Intel GPU can only do like 30FPS in low quality, and in older games.

Just get a tablet (Galaxy Tab S 10,5, iPad Air 2), or a gaming laptop (Anything >= GTX870M). Or a laptop (like an X220, something portable). Whichever you really want.

>>52396204

I want to upgrade my GPU. I have a GTX 770 right now. It still kind of does its job.. Playing witcher 3 on high settings with nvidia memeworks off. Problem is I've recently got myself a 144hz screen and and i want to play new games with more than just 60 fps. Note that i will be playing on 1080p.

A 970 is not that much of an improvement over the 770, 980 is shit value for money. Should i get a 980ti? If u think im retarded then talk me out of it pls. I know it will overkill atm for 1080p but i really want that fps...

I dont know much about amd cards, i have owned a sapphire hd 7950 in the past so based on just that comparison alone i like nvidia more, main reason being shadowplay, its just too good not to have.

My mobo is asrock z77 pro4 which is capable of crossfire but not sli, and i have a 600w psu so my only option seems to be single gpu.

I dont think its worth waiting for pascal since it looks like nvidia is having problems with that shit, and most likely we will need new mobos to take advantage of that nvlink thingy? So might aswell build a new pc by then.. and since i live in third world eastern European shithole, even when pascal comes out abd 980ti prices will drop i will still be cucked into paying a retarded price for it.. Because europe... Right now it is literally 800 euros here and there's absolutely no chance to get it any cheaper in any way... Well shit im confused
>>
>>52397689
>Check /etc/fstab ?

Already done, doesn't help.
>>
>>52397785
> Do you have a lot of money to burn?
Buy the 980TI.
> You have a >100 iq?
Wait for the next generation, and buy either the 980 for lower prices, or just buy the new card.

The 980TI is NOT a 4K card, so to say.
It is still a few gens away until cards will be able to drive that resolution. And also run games on ~150FPS at 1080p.

> Shadowplay
AMD also has that now, you can stream with it and shit. Xsplit supports it.

But, fuck that, AMD is shit.
Drivers are shit, no Gameworks, no Physx, etc. I have a laptop with GTX880M, and a similar specced desktop but with a stronger AMD GPU. I still play on the laptop because I miss the effects.

Even SLI is disabled for some games, but Crossfire is an absolute disaster. Just look around on Google.

Check that out, if you have a 144hz panel.

But then again, just wait.

Or buy a second GTX770 used? That could work. But it's like a 80% increase at best cases.

1) You may have assembled it back wrong.
2) Did you apply thermal paste on gpu/cpu?
3) Compressed air can kill fans if you allow them to overspin.

If none of these work or apply, you can buy a new cooler off from ebay. Just make sure the model matches and shit.

>>52398567
Some games can reach 144FPS, some won't.
Like in CS:GO you could do 144 easily with low settings on 1080p.

Running AAA games on high ... that's not possible with current gen. Wait 1-2 generations.

Thats what i thought. I dont play CSGO now and i doubt 144 would help me that much if im an eternal scrub. Should i save money and get a decent 1080p 60Hz monitor instead? Any recommendations?
>>
>>52398666
There is your problem then.
Buy paste (just grab something cheap, there is like +/-1C difference between cheapest and most expensive).

1) Remove sink
2) Apply a pea sized drop on top of each chip,
3) Put sink on

that's it.
the pea size drop/glob will just spread once you put on the sink, you don't have to spread it manually, or with credit card, nothing.

>>52398685
1) If you buy a simple 1080p panel, just go for something with a low response time. Any Benq "gamer" product is perfect, really. They cost 200$ or so.

2) You can buy a bigger monitor, like 27". Either 1080p, or 1440p.

3) You can also buy a TV with a 1080p panel, they have fast refresh rates, fast response rate, and they are BIG.

It's your money, your choice.
>>
>>52398704
are bigger resolutions worth it? Considering you need better gpu and shit. I have no idea.
>>
>>52398758
Only if you use your computer to work.
Like bigger resolution = bigger screen esate.
But yes, you would have to play most titles in 1080p, if you want 60fps.

>How are Benqs overall as monitors, reliable?
Had.. hell I am still using it right now ... a Benq, first 1080p displays available.

It still works.
Colors are still faded, but it is like 5 years old?
And it was the first of the very first series, like it's not LED and shit, just a pure LCD 1080p panel.

it's a benq e2200hd.

So yes, they are excellent quality.
Friend bought a 120hz Benq, it's A+.
>>
>>52398880
oh and this was the cheapest 1080p panel on the market. and now, all pro players use Benq. not just because they sponsor the events, they are good panels.

Find the wiring diagram for your heater. They're pretty simple. You'll need relays: the thermostat controls lines run at 24v I think.
