I have a stupid question, /g/. How THE FUCK do I stream stuff conveniently from my mac in my local network? Basically I want to access its files from my phone. I can access it via sftp but it's painfully slow, and when I try smb, it says wrong password. I did everything according to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204445

Holy shit, I have tried every single thing to fix my audio. Everything. I don't want to do a fucking clean install just because of this shit.

Can someone with Windows 7 export or take a screenshot of the following things:

>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\AudioEndpointBuilder
>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\AudioSrv
>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\MMCSS

Having weird problems. Can't start the endpoint service, getting error 5 access denied even though I have should have access.

I'm looking at upgrading my video card on my laptop.I need it for work.

Currently I have a Nvidia GeForce 310m. I'm looking at a budget of about $70 max. I've been looking at some and pretty much anything looks like a substantial upgrade from what I have.

My question is, what can I use that will fit In Its place? If anybody has any suggestions.

Also, I'm running an old i5 2.4ghz processor. What could I upgrade to that's at least a 2.8ghz that will fit and won't break my wallet

Also, I'm using a 650w gold PSU. I'm guessing I'll have to upgrade that as well right?

Anyone here know the EFI shell? I don't know how to get my VM to boot from the EFI shell.

I followed this tutorial exactly, pic related.

I got all the way to the black EFI shell screen and can't for the life of me figure out how to boot.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have spent hours setting this up, and getting stuck here feels so horrible.

How to optimize pcsx2 on linux so there's no background shit competing with it?

You already fucked up.
>>
>>51393264
Depends on your definition of "future proof." I just upgraded to a Skylake system, and I got 4, almost 5 years out of my previous computer.

I thought I'd get more life out of it, but just couldn't.

I'd say the most you can expect out of current technology is 5 years. Past that and it shows age.

what should/shouldn't I put in a SSD?

I've heard that SSD's die if you write too much to them but then what's the point of having one if you're not supposed to use it? I guess installing Windows there will be okay but is it okay to also install games on it, especially games that will have a gorillion trillion files because of mods?

ALSO I keep seeing this "write cycle limit" thing in reference to SSD lifespan. What constitutes a write cycle? Like, if I dump 20k files in it at once, is that 1 write cycle or 20k?

sorry for being dumb
>>
>>51393458
I am pretty sure we are past the "don't write to much to SSDs" stage.

Modern SSDs have incredible resiliency, and are rated at hundreds, even thousands of terabytes of data written to them.

That would come out to years of constant writing to them. If you get a good quality SSD and use it normally it should last at least 5 years, but probably more like 10 years.
>>
>>51393528

So what I should do is install OS, games and programs to the SSD and download/dump files into the HDD, right?

Also what would be a good budget SSD, like say €100-150?
>>
>>51393447

500gb Samsung 850 EVO and you are golden.

Sure, get a 1TB normal hard drive to store files that you don't need to be fast, and just install everything on the SSD.

Extra dumb question, but is there a danger in downloading untrusted .exe files, even if I don't run them or open them at any point?

Reposting from the old thread. Perhaps someone can help me.

hello i have a computer its old
well the point is there was a storm during the night and i left the computer on and i wake up and i tried to turn it on and it does but turned it off during post, doesnt matter anyways
thing is the computer can post, but the first time i tried to turn it on after i returned it loaded windows but it froze, now when i try to turn it on again it keeps freezing when it tries to load windows
a moment ago i could see the mouse and move it, but after a while the screen went black with a 1 inch line of static/noise
is it the cpu or the gpu that is not working?
i think it is the cpu but i dont have other to test it, i will buy one tomorrow if it is (its socker 775 its old)
the gpu fan spins but at idle speed btw (always did that until windows loaded then it went at a set speed)

Is it technically possible to create a torrent just for my own use to download about 20,000 images of porn when I'm away from home?

What are the trials in creating a torrent for your own use?
>>
>>51394656
You wouldn't use a torrent at all because that is fucking stupid.

Torrents only make sense for distributing to multiple people in the long haul. You would be better off just putting it in drop box or setting up your own file server.

I have an LG G3 and whenever I try to play music through AUX input, Google Voice is triggered and it keeps trying to ask for voice input. It only happens with powered sources (car, clock radio) and is fine when I use headphones.

Comparing 128GB SSD to 256GB;

Yes, no, and no,

SD cards shouldn't be used as main storage for computers. They are slow and not reliable enough.

SSDs are cheap now. Just get a 256GB class SSD and be done with it. Wait for black friday and see if there are any good deals for 500GB class SSDs.

Couple options.

First, use the built in backup implementation in Windows to backup your install. Preferably to an external hard drive. I'd also manually copy and paste important files to the external drive as well. Then install whatever Linux distro you want, wiping Windows in the process. When done, if you don't want to stick with Linux, you can restore Windows from the backup.

Second, and probably the easier option, is get a secondary drive to install Linux on. You can get a small, older SSD of craigslist for cheap. Unplug your Windows drive from the motherboard and plug in your Linux drive. Fuck around with Linux, then if you don't like in plug your Windows drive back in.
