This is my first time using a Windforce card, and I was wondering if graphics card sag is actually bad for the card or motherboard. No support bracket was included.
Also it's a 980 G1 with a backplate if that changes anything.
Had the same problem with one of my cards, I think they're free (minus shipping) from some companies, they just don't include them to save cost as most people won't notice them missing.
Check their website
How do I install Windows to a hard drive while my motherboard is in UEFI mode? Or how do I configure my UEFI to allow two drives running different operating systems to coexist?
As it currently stands, I have one hard drive running arch Linux in UEFI mode that can't be loaded in Legacy BIOS. In Legacy BIOS mode I can easily load my SSD running Windows.
I can't even boot from a CD or change boot order in UEFI. What's the problem? EVGA X99 FTW motherboard. 5820k CPU.
When I try to change my monitor's refresh rate through Windows' display adapter properties it won't take, and nVidia drivers don't even recognize the difference between 59 (59.95) and 60 (actual 60).
I mean I don't think it's not supported anymore, but I don't know if you can do a bootable CD that works in UEFI like you can do with a USB stick
installing from a USB stick is faster too, so there's that
Would it be possible to recreate the Office 365 environment in virtual machines?

i have a r9 390 that i just RMAd .
i got the brand new one today and i'm already having problems with it .
it REFUSES to hit 1040 mhz on the core it just floats around 960 - 980 and 1040 is the stock speed .
the other card i just RMAD didn't do this .
rma again ?
The card manufacturer or the company, I can't remember which it was. If you can't find it it's not terrible for your card or board. You can probably nigger-rig a solution with twist ties or something if it bothers you like it did with me.
I plan on getting one of these and keeping my windows 7 boot stick (which also contains necessary drivers since I don't have an optical drive) safe in it

My old novidya is dying, and i really don't think buying 390 or 3.5 right now is a wise choice. On the other hand, if they drop next year or so i may just as well buy something now.
I am mentally deficient can anyone tell me why?
Because explicit permission is better than implicit, especially as programs run as root makes files as root causing a cascade in ownership which *could* lead to permission exploits/mishaps.
Just run things that can run as a user as user and make them ask for root permission

The bit with the laser can move freely and is clean. I've tried moving it from the usual position and rebooting in order to reset it in case it had moved too far towards the center and got stuck, that didn't help.

Why does this thread actively try to make /g/ a shittier place?
/g/ is mostly full of troll and wildly off-topic threads, so what's the frickin' problem?
I don't know if you're being sarcastic, but it would.
As it stands, /g/ is almost useless. It's mostly trolling and off-topic. There's nothing wrong with posting question threads and bumping them at a conservative rate.
I dropped my nexus 4 and now I get these after image-like lines whenever something happen on screen. You can see them under the 'Browser' icon. It also feels like the resolution went down, everything looks jagged. Is there anything I can do?
Look for one that has the foldable screen though
also make sure it's at least 800p you can search a lot better on newegg using power search, highest screen resolution for the lowest price is probably the thing to prioritize.
Is there some setting or value I can change in Firefox to make videos remain paused upon loading?

what good tiling window managers are there for windows?
I have to use windows for work and I've been looking into tiling wms, aquasnap seems ok but the actual tiling is not free, any alternatives?
which speakers should i buy? i've narrowed it down to the three above, but i'm open to suggestions. budget is somewhere between 100 and 200€.
i'm coming from the Logitech G51 5.1, which were too heavy on the bass for me (even though i mainly like and listen to bass heavy music). before those i had the Logitech X-530 5.1, which were cheaper and sounded better to me, but they broke.
i don't think i really need surround sound anymore. i've been using my headphones for 3 years now, so i'm used to stereo. a subwoofer is not necessary either, i don't want to annoy my neighbors.
i'm leaning towards the edifier speakers, though i won't be using the bluetooth capabilities. i don't have an AMP and basically i have no idea what i'm doing.
check out winsplit. it's as good as it gets on windows.

Why or why should I not major in Computer Science
I've had to drop another computer science class today because the professors at my college suck ass
I'm really feeling unmotivated right now
Ok /g/ I have a problem. I am removing a HD in a laptop and there is this weird ass sata connector that I've never seen before. I don't know how to unplug it, please help.
CS grad here. I feel you on the shitty professors thing, some of them just stop giving a fuck after tenure and just namedrop and placedrop and talk about how awesome they are and what they've done instead of teaching.
Still, if you want to do CS then motivation is pretty much required. Do what I did and self-teach, getting a bachelor's these days is all about the paper anyway. Do you go to a shitty state funded school or something?
I go to a state funded community college in Arizona, I honestly feel that the Internet could teach me better than these classes at this point, but I feel pressured that I have to earn a degree in this.

When i turn my computer on, everything works fine, up until the point where windows wants me to enter my password. Then the screen goes black. It says "no input detected!" on the screen. I can still type in my password and use the computer of course, but the screen is black.
If i run the computer in safe mode it works just fine. Which makes me believe there's some program that auto-launches with windows that makes the screen / graphics device drivers not work. However when i'm in safe mode i can't launch catalyst control center and i can't change / remove it with the "Add or remove programs" function in windows. I'm running the PC in safe mode now of course. Any ideas?

>Graphics card won't display
What should I do? I've tried reseating. I've tried other slots. I tried an older graphics card and it worked fine.

It's an R9 390 btw.

I'm trying to torrent a certain game and I keep getting choked by every seed available. This happens with both qbittorrent and Halite. KAT says the torrent should have 200+ seeders but I only ever get 8 at a time, that I can't connect to. What the fuck is going on?
I know it's best to remove existing graphics card drivers when installing new ones, but do you also have to do that when switching brands? I have AMD right now but I'm getting Nvidia soon, so will I have to remove everything related to the AMD card or what?
Well at the moment i'm just reading a book, so the Safe Mode works fine. But of course i want to be able to use the graphics card's full functionality. Right now, all i can think of is to uninstall / disable catalyst control center, and then reinstall it. But like i said i can't seem to change / remove it in Safe Mode, so that's why i came here asking for advice, i'm kind of stumped.
Thanks for the hint Anon, i'll look into that
What power supply?
Did you plug in the cables to the graphics card itself?
Is your bios set to output from the iGPU or PCI-e slot?
Did you try another cable/connection?
Did you try another monitor?

Don't have another
that's what happens when the laser is unable to focus on the disc
can be caused by several things, like;
- the disc is unsupported (such as using a dvd in a cd drive, or bluray in a dvd drive)
- the disc is upside down
- the laser is dirty
- the disc is dirty
- the laser is broken
>The lights come on, the fans spin
That just means it receives power, the GPU itself might still be kaputt
Try asking in other places like reddit and toms hardware and such before RMAing
They're almost the same. The 290X is a tiny bit more powerful but it also gets hotter and uses more power, and the 3xx series has some newer features. Also the 390 has double the VRAM so there's that
I'd get the 390.

Encryption only works if both ends are using it. I'm basically talking about a program that scrubs and inject data to your packets to make it sort of work like a VPN would but without the ass lag
You gotta be more specific to what protocol or application you're using. Encryption is always an option. VPN is the only spoofing you can do. You can't change or hide your IP address, or packets will never make it back. You could spam the same packet with decoys but then your asking to get blacklisted
Why is it that Consolas isn't a font option? It has been for literally every other system I've seen.
While typing my reply I thought of an answer to my own question.
Basically I want a dedicated hardware VPS linked to my computer that will scrub the personal information in realtime from my computer in outgoing packets except for the IP for the VPS and send the encrypted information back and forth from the VPS and computer.

I have a form in php which shows all fields like

If I submit this form it goes to another php script to evalute it thats fine.
What I wanna do though is having Test [ ] displayed then clicking next will hide Test [ ]
and show Test2 [ ]
then clicken next will hide it until I reach TestX [ ]
then clicking next should submit this form to the php scripts which evaluates this form.

So I loaded a video on my tablet and went to play it with MX Player Pro, it plays but the sound skips every few seconds. But it plays fine with vlc on my pc. What is the reason for this? Is there anything I can do about this? I've found the vlc moile app to be a piece of shit compared to the desktop program.
no since you're pretty much making a vector. what I mean by blowing up is only blowing up the marching ants selection not the actual image inside the selection. Use it as a reference to make your own at a higher res or just trace it in illustrator.
What program would you recommend as a subtitle downloader?

Any help, anons?
Tried using the HW decoder with mx player and it fucks the screen up, it shows everything in green like vlc sometimes does when it stutters, it only plays with the SW decoder. I've also already installed the DTS and AC3 Audio codecs.
Because I like it. I have the blockiness of non-aero.
Then it doesn't matter, if all you're doing is gaming get a 1080p IPS display, whatever is cheap with decent reviews
or pony up the $300 or so dollars for the 21:9 1080p Free-sync display
not so much for the 21:9 aspect ratio, but more so because it's about the cheapest IPS free-sync display around
if you're doing productivity get the cheapest 1440p IPS display
I enabled it but I still only get the HW and SW option, see pic, it doesn't play with the HW decoder. I'm missing something.

My chrome has been having the weirdest problem like. Chrome and only chrome. My desktop is connected via ethernet but recently it has been not loading things all the way, sometimes I get "This page cannot be loaded" and a quick refresh fixes it, sometimes a page loads as a blank white page with text, unfinished, sometimes random images show up as broken. My laptop with chrome and wifi is having none of these issues either.
If I set up my desktop pc (primarily used for gaming) in one room of my house and connected to it with a thin client on the same home network in a different room, would there be any major performance decrease other than a bit of input lag? Sort of like a remote desktop situation but still in the same network, so no internet necessary.
Just configured my very first server with the most basic example page. I plan on hosting an owncloud, tt-rss and git server on it.

I'm looking to buy a laser printer to print out custom artwork magic cards. I was looking at a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw, but something on a review site confused me. It lists high quality text and graphics as a pro, but sub par photo output as a downside. That seems like a contradiction. How can it have good graphics but sub par photo quality. Can someone explain this to me.
can you load two different operating systems on different partitions on one hard drive? i thought you could, but i'm having trouble getting it to work. my BIOS only recognizes one of the partitions, though both are there
I don't know, mate. It works fine for me. Try exporting your settings, deleting 4chan X, installing it again, then importing your settings.
Would there be a better board to ask this on?

Any idea what to do?
Not sure what sites to browse for torrents either I've been using kat and that's all I know.

Hey /g/, I don't normally post here, but I'm in desperate need of your help.
My specs are the pic related.
My computer is usually fine when I play video games, and I just recently upgraded my internet to a much faster option.
I noticed that when I play Black Ops 3, I experience what I'm not sure is either lag or computer shits. When an enemy isn't shown on screen, it runs at 70+fps, when I downgraded all of my graphics to low that is. But when an enemy is on screen, it drops to 30fps and below, or so it says, but it feels like 5fps and it's what appears to be extremely laggy.
I run Windows 7 home premium on my computer, and hoping that my upgrade to Windows 10 (even though I had updated it before it made everything but my vidya slightly slower) will fix my issue.
Update: Windows 10 can't install or download. Checked the error code, but it's unknown and such.
/g/ isn't tech support you fucking retard.
tell your parents not to buy you gaming PCs if you're not a power user.
Rant aside, check your graphics card drivers. That's a hardware problem not a latency problem.
Also, it is a custom built PC, but it's 3 or 4 years old now. So it's probably in need of some upgrades?
Graphics drivers are up to date, but I'll try reinstalling the game. Thank you.
From my basic half week crash course in this topic last semester, public variables can be called from any method. So if someone were to take control of any method, they could call and alter that variable. Private limits it to that specific method/function. If its in the main method of the class it should be limited to access by that class. (Double check this on the last sentence).
So I've been working on this part list for a while. Is there anything better I could swap out for a current part?
Is everything compatible? They should be, but an extra sweep won't hurt.
I've read some stuff in the past.
You're going to need to go intel.
There should be a list of good compatibility motherboards out there.
Other than that, if you're adding a gpu pick something that is compatible with the OSX desktop units.
i can find bits and pieces of advice on building a hackintosh all over, but nothing that really ties it all in. i might just go for it with some older stuff i've got lying around just to see how the process will go before buying new parts
I don't know if this is the place to ask, but I just build my PC and when I flip the power switch (the one from the PSU) it starts to work immediatly, the CPU fan starts working and some leds are turned on, but afterwards it stops working at all.
Pushing the power button from the case doesn't do anything and I don't really know what the hell might be wrong because both the 24-pin and the 4-pin power cables are connected where they should be.
Please, anyone has any remote idea about where I fucked up?
1.Check connectors. Make sure everything in plugged into the *right* sockets.
2. Make sure the CPU is secured.
3. Make sure the ram is secured.
If it immediately powers off after that, see if you need to update your bios for CPU compatibility.
well, I can't enter the BIOS since the PC won't even start.
The CPU fan starts to work for 2-3 seconds when I flip the power switch of the PSU (not even when I press the power button). This is very strange, maybe the case is fucking up, but I don't think so since it's also new.
there are beep codes, check them on the internet or in your mobo manual
if there's a hardware issue with any of the parts it should beep accordingly
though I think something isn't getting power
also this, check every connection
if it immediately powers on without you pressing the power button there's something fishy, check case connections for the buttons and so on
BIOS doesn't need to boot to update for 95% of boards. Do what I mentioned first though. Seriously. If you're not going to try to fix shit, I'm not going to try to help you.
Also like, >>52554893 said: check beeps and compare to manufacture's documents.
A popup, especially if it's one that doesn't go away after awhile until I click it, just in case I'm away. Maybe have the icon change color too.
Or if it's in its own window, make it change like how 4chan shows a number when new posts happen.
Oh the program wont be an extension to chrome or anything it will be a separate program running on your pc. Do you want it to serach through every single board on 4chan for that word or only the board that you specify?
I checked all the PSU connectors, the rams and the processor and everything seems to be in order.
The problem is the same, I switch the PSU power to on and the PC boots (or tries to do) automatically without me pressing the power button from the case. After 2-3 seconds of the CPU fan trying to work, it stops and everything shutdowns. Trying to turn on the PC doesn't seem to work.
Was afraid it'd mean something I already tried. This is what pops up. Pops up every time I turn this thing on actually.
It doesn't get to the point of beeping. I can only hear the fan working, but no beeping to be noticed.
The PSU is 700 volts though. I don't think that it's small for an i5-4690 and the basic things of a PC. Can it be related to the cable? I used a different cable than the one that came with the PSU.
Yeah it's a new PC, but my graphics card was D.O.A so I'm using my old one for now. This is usually how things look before driver installation, but in this case it persisted. I don't think there's a restore point when this pc isn't even a day old.
Card's a gtx 650 btw.
Which 980 Ti would be best for watercooling? I know precooled cards are a thing but I want a custom loop with full cover blocks.
well try with the default cable but I think that if your psu is okay it might be the mobo
any leds on it that work?
also, try a different psu if you have one around
well sounds like it might be a driver conflict (if you installed drivers for the dead card and now for your current one) but you can never be sure
if it's a new pc it probably won't be a problem for you to just reinstall windows, you probably don't have anything installed yet
I tried changing the cable, it does the same.
The MOBO doesn't have any leds, so I can't tell if it's working or not. It's an MSI H97M-E35 and it seems like some people have had this issue too, but no answer so far. Closest I've found is that the BIOS thinks that the CPU fan isn't working so it doesn't allow the PC to boot, but I can't access the BIOS from without booting the computer. How can I access the BIOS or update it or do anything at all?
you should be able to access the bios without booting in os, even without a hard drive
no beeps means that you either don't have a mobo speaker or it just dun work due to something
I'd suggest try another psu, if it still doesn't work it's probably the mobo
I know how it feels for a new pc to not behave, wish you all the best
I'm such a softie tonight
I'll try to use another PSU I have laying around somewhere.
I checked the thermalpaste and they are working fine (I'll try to take a picture so you guys can check it anyways).
I connected the speaker correctly I think, the problem is that the computer stops working at all, so I don't know if it's possible to see the BIOS.
I'll come back after I change the PSU's.
I highly doubt there is, but is there a way to gauge someone's monthly internet usage without actually logging into whatever internet account they have or eating up all their usage?
May or may not be trapped with 2gb a month.
Alright, changing the PSU did nothing, exact same out come.
So the MOBO seems to be the most probable cause of the problem as I see it. Any ideas ? Because the o ley thing I can think of is returning it to the shop
Help a retard out. I don't understand anything in this comparison. Is it a tangible difference between the two of is it negligible?
I'm pretty sure that the MOBO is fucked up somehow.
I'll go back to the store tomorow to see if they can change it or something, maybe I did something that killed it or maybe it had some fabric issues, but I'm not willing to buy a new one for now.
I'm so fucking pissed about this at the moment, all I wanted was to finally play MGSV, Witcher 3 and Dota at 60fps finally.
so I have a DAC with 3.5 output and a stereo receiver with RCA input. My new DAC will have RCA output. I'm lazy and cheap and thinking of getting a female 3.5 to male RCA adapter. Would I lose out on anything going RCA > 3.5 > RCA?
Hey guys I was wondering if you know of a web page addon that would automatically change web page themes from white to black with a different font color... browsing the web at night hurts my eyes. and didnt know if there was something for this on chrome.

Just moved to a new house and my modem has been rebooting like a mother fucker, and tv works when it want's to. Got a tech out today who eliminated some unused splitters and improved the modem connection slightly. Anything I can do to make it better? Also, how good are these rating? Upstream power still to high, no?
slightly too high, yes
But not anything that should give you trouble. does the modem have an event log?
it does but I cleared it, since he "improved" it it hasn't dropped since. However, I was at about ~53.0dbmv before it use to reboot, which makes me think it's likely to happen again. Not to mention I still need to hook up tv in my room which is going to require a splitter, thus making the signal worse.
But is that benefit worth shelling out extra money or does it seem like performance should be fairly similar?
Gladly I won't be doing any hardcore gaming on this thing. But I'd still like to go with the best choice.
The program isn't very fast and it will take some time to search through every single thread for the word you specify. There is a lot of text in each thread and many threads. But I am almost done now. I ran into some trouble when trying to parse the html code.
Why is it when i use monitor with DP-mDP image is somewhat blurred or should i say blurrier in motion, but when i use HDMI it's fine? Is there a way to fix this? shouldn't they be identical?
Fuck I have to go to the university very soon. I might have to make the final edits to the program when I get home in about 5 hours. If the thread is dead when I get home and there is a new one I will use the codeword "avocado" so that you can find my posts easily. There are some stuff you have to install for this to work.
