I accidentally purchased cable that make winows think that my monitor is "Generic Non-PnP Monitor". Windows can't my native resolution and uses 1024x768. I created custom resolution, so this issue is fixed. But now i have other one.

Scince monitor is Generic Non-PnP Monitor then windows shows a lot of resolutions that my monitor doesn't support. Many games chose automatically at the start biggest one, and i'm ending up with black screen and "out of range" on my monitor.

Is there anyway to HIDE resolutions i don't want to use? I can only delete custom resolutions in videocard control panel. Can't do shit about normal ones.

this problem can occur if you use a VGA cable that lacks the pins used for DDC/power (9/12/15), which is how graphics cards read the EDID chip in "modern" VGA monitors, which contains the list of valid modes for that monitor
>>
>>51487792
>I dont think the chord is the issue
I'm sure that's 100% cord's fault. It has one less pin than previous, normal one
>>51487823
Yep, that's exactly what i have.
>>
>>51487823
oh yea, the other reason is that the monitor is really old and doesn't have an EDID chip at all (in which case it really is a "non-pnp" monitor)

most late 90's+ monitors have one

I've been using a VPN for a while and have been connecting/disconnecting whenever I want to torrent/play online games but I want a more permanent solution that will allow me to not use the VPN for certain applications (i.e Steam) and if possible not use it for certain sites because the big jew prevents posting from a VPN.

Is there some sort of guide on how to force an application to not use the VPN service? I'm thinking there might be a way to do it using IP and routing tables.

Currently using AirVPN and Windows 8.1.

Why won't my r9 280x run 3 monitors?

This is from the manufacturers website when I bought it. I can no longer find it on their site.

supports up to 3 display monitor(s) without DisplayPort
5 x Maximum Display Monitor(s) support
To support 3rd monitor without DisplayPort cable connected, 2 of the 3 monitors should be the same model with DVI ports connected. The driver version should be v13.12 or above

Currently have 2 dell u2412m's connected via dvi. I should be able to add a third without displayport.

And their fucking support wont get back to me

i sorta doubt that. ethernet almost always works.

try connecting to the router itself (find out its IP and connect via lan and your browser) to see if the lan connection is working. idk what router you have but for D-link and netgear it's "192.168.0.1"

if the connection is working, the internet connection is fucked. if it's not working, well, i don't even know. ethernet has always worked out of the box for me, even with fresh installs. no modern system comes without ethernet drivers

My WiFi connection is shit tier, but connection works fine through Ethernet. But my Router is at the other side of the house and my PC is a desktop...
What is the easiest setup to put a remote device to download stuff for me through Ethernet so I can retrieve it later? Should a RasPi does the job?

Lets say, I want to download something from my browser through my desktop connection, but I want a certain torrent to be downloaded remotely from the ethernet device. Is it possible?

So I've been wanting to download BF2: Project Reality for a long time. But I have no idea how to use qBittorrent, which the site recommends I use to download the file. When I press this button (download from the German flag) it gives me an option to either open the file or save it. Saving it goes directly to in-browser download which is obviously not what to do.

I know, I'm retarded and beyond help. But how do I do this?

supports up to 3 display monitor(s) without DisplayPort
5 x Maximum Display Monitor(s) support
To support 3rd monitor without DisplayPort cable connected, 2 of the 3 monitors should be the same model with DVI ports connected. The driver version should be v13.12 or above

"2015-11-24 [02:43]

You are planning to use both DVI plus HDMI from the card to setup 3 monitors right? one of the require ment is that all 3 of your monitors have to be the same make and model. If not you are require to use an active display port to DVI or HDMI to your 3rd monitor."

Fuck sapphire. I just want to add a third monitor dammit.

Just bought a TV card which comes with a remote and an USB IR receiver. Since my computer sits on the ground, I need to place the receiver somewhere else.

So I was wondering if there are semi-flexible USB extension cords, like with these USB reading lamps, to keep the receiver in place.

The other, less elegant option I had in mind would be just to duct-tape the cable to the desk.

As an alternative I was considering TOX, which seems fine, but the toxcore git states that the PyTox bindings are outdated. On the other hand that file hasn't been updated since july. Is that still true?

>font rendering of subtitles is ever so slightly less nice when you examine it -- so long as it's very easily legible, if you find yourself focusing on font details rather than the anime itself, you probably need to find a better anime
Apart from that, it plays, streams, saves, etc. just about everything you can throw at it.

>>51492955
Depends on the games. Try it. Worst that happens, you'll be playing on lower settings for a little bit.

I would definitely go this route and save up for a really good GPU. Better to play on lower settings of 720p for a couple months and get a better GPU later, than to get a lesser GPU now and be stuck with it long term.

Ethernet is the best, but if you can't run a wire and can't move it someplace you can run a wire, get a second router that has a wifi repeater mode. In this mode, all you need is an electric outlet and someplace to set it roughly halfway between the router and PC. You put it in repeater mode and connect it to your wifi. That's it -- it won't create a new AP, it'll just rebroadcast the signal from your main router. A laptop will even switch between them automatically without any disruption in connections if you move around the house.

Be sure you get a router that supports wifi repeater mode with the security type you're using. I've seen some ASUS ones that can only do it on WEP or open, no WPA2. Or something that can be flashed to DD-WRT since that has a working repeater mode.

>>51496134
It's not as pretty and clean as a VESA mount on the monitor, but you can almost certainly work something out if you're clever. If the back of the monitor is reasonably sturdy and flat in the middle, you can probably take it off, drill holes where VESA mount holes belong, put a metal plate on the inside back for sturdiness and put bolts through that. Or remove the monitor's stand, bolt some wood onto the VESA stand, and rig something with some rubber-covered metal hooks like they use to hold some display items down in stores.

Sounds reasonable. I wouldn't go ECC either. Just get decent quality RAM and memtest the shit out of it. Bit errors are rare enough that it shouldn't cause issues. Turn up the DRAM refresh frequency a bit in BIOS if you're paranoid and want to sacrifice some performance for less chance of bit errors.

Also do you have ECC RAM in the machines that are going to connect to it for storage? If not, ECC in that one is near pointless.

From the sound of it, the picture quality isn't as good.

ROMs do affect game performance -- the more cruft you have running in the background, the slower things will be. Kernel, cpufreq governors, scheduler, and driver versions have an effect too. I don't know about the S5 in particular since I don't have one.

>>51499227
That sounds like more than enough, given that a raspi will run off a 1A power supply, and a 2.5" HDD works fine with the USB bus-powered adapter cable I have (so ~500 mA). Even 2-5A sounds like it should be enough.

My Intel i5 2500k CPU usually sits around 60-75ºc when it is doing something like playing vidya or rendering a video, but recently I now see it going around the 80-90º range whenever the computer is being used for more than just browsing the internet. I'm not doing in particular right and it still seems to sit around a fairly high temperature.

There's been no change of hardware, no notable software has been installed recently other than STALKER so I doubt I've collected more AIDS for Win7, the environment the computer sits in hasn't really changed, and no fans are failing as far as I can tell. It all seems rather sudden.

The only thing I haven't checked is the stock heatsink I use for it. What are some possible causes so I can narrow down the problem? I just don't want to kill the CPU by just casually playing something.

I prefer KeePass (2) on windows.

>>51502948
>Maybe its the thermal paste.

Fortunately I've got a tube of it around. Will investigate eventually.
>>
>>51502948
eh, isn't KeePass also cross-platform?
>>
>>51502976
Unofficially and using mono IIRC.
I would go for Keepass since KeePassX doesn't support the 2.0 database.

I'm downloading iTunes on Windows to leech off their 3 months free trial since Spotify ads are annoying and I'm kind of liking streaming music since storage on my nas is getting scarce.

Yes. Apple will fuck you over at every chance they get, and iTunes is a shitty media player. Just get a bigger harddisk - they can be hella cheap second hand.

What's the best way to copy 1TB+ of files to an external drive? Default windows copying is horrible to use for this.
>>
>>51503322
I just use robocopy. Options I typically use are

robocopy /E /B /XJ /MT:8 /W:0 /R:0


though it also depends on what you want to copy (for example I set it to not retry any failed stuff because I assume it might fail to copy system files when I do full drive copies and don't want it to get stuck in a loop, excluding junctions is for the same reason, this sometimes creates loops) if you just want to copy a bunch of movies or something you really just need the /E (for include subdirectories including empty ones) and /MT:8 (multithreaded, 8 threads, you can change the number if you want)

There might be a better tool out there but robocopy was always good enough for me, also if the copy aborts for whatever reason you can just run the command again, and it is pretty smart about resuming where it left off (well, from the file it left off on, anyway) and you can even run a second pass to be sure everything copied properly, and it will skip all the stuff with the same date and filesize.

Perfect, now you can go to the police, they can identify him with the phone, so you can sue him for the aggression and the broken glasses.

Q:

How can I convert FLAC audio in XXX number of episodes that are in .mkv? Is there any batch tool that could help with the process?
>>
>>51503626
ffmpeg
>>
>>51503626
error: could not process what you exactly want to do
You mean, do the MKVs already contain a FLAC audio track that you want to convert into something else, the new track integrated into the MKVs? Or do you just want to extract the audio track and convert it for further listening?
>>
>>51503663
I just want to encode FLAC thats inside .mkv to AAC or something. I don't want to extract it.

>>51503645
ffmpeg looks nice but I need something with gui
>>
>>51503626
>I just want to encode FLAC thats inside .mkv to AAC or something. I don't want to extract it.
You'll still need to extract it to do that. Take this with a grain of salt, because I've not tested it, but:
for FILE in *.mkv; do mv $FILE $(basename $FILE .mkv).old.mkv; ffmpeg -i $FILE (basename $FILE .mkv).old.mkv -c:v copy -strict experimental -c:a aac -b:a 240k $FILE; done

Replace "240k" with whatever bitrate you like.

Replaced the thermal paste with a reasonable and not overexaggerated amount and it's still hovering around the 90ºc area

What the fuck do I have left other than replacing the CPU fan with something more competent? I'd like to save money if possible

You could try a different OS or some benchmark liveCD but I don't think its a software issue.

Not so stupid as it is really specific and odd.

Getting single, to sometimes a small row of pixel flickering. Here's the weird thing though. In browsers and programs, it's fine. In games, no problem. Video is normal. It only happens on my backgrounds, and only some of them. Just updated to newest Catalyst drivers to see if that would help and nothing. Not the display. And having trouble thinking it could be the card, though maybe? A card wouldn't be so specific, neither the display. If the pixels were flickering because of hardware it would be indiscriminate to variables.

Anyone ever had this happen? Sapphire R9 390 Nitro btw.
>>
>>51504040
Replace it with a cheap but decent aftermarket cooler. depending on how much you can buy used or new. check out some of the niche subreddits like /r/hardwareswap or /r/buildapcsales for cheap new and used parts.

Got an ipad 2. It's rather old and slow. Which tablet do I look into if I want ios and not android? Also any general tips?

I don't know anything about RAM.

I'm building a Skylake PC, which DDR4 RAM should I pick? DDR4-2133, 2400, 2666 and so on? Should I just pick the cheapest?
>>
>>51504544
RAM frequency is not the most critical performance factor in a configuration. Higher frequencies give some marginal improvements in high bitrate operations like 3D rendering and are safer for CPU overclock.

any tips/resources to burning DVDs?
>>
What's the best e-reader right now?
>>
>>51508584
be specific
do you mean;
- making a disc from files?
- making a disc from images?
- copying commercial video dvd's?
- creating video dvd's? (from non-dvd video sources)
>>
>>51508584
24 on normal discs
8 on RW (only if you have burned previous data on it)
>>
>>51508668
actually, i'll give examples for each;
- "mkisofs -udf file1 file2..." to make an image from file(s)/folder(s), burn that
- xfburn/imgburn/etc, basically any burning tool can burn pre-made images
- clonedvd did the job for me back when i did this
- ffmpeg + dvd-lab pro 2, first to encode the mpeg2 video to dvd standard format (if they aren't already), second to author the dvd (add menus and other structures, outputs an image which you burn)
>>
>>51508668
taking a real movie, putting it on a disc, and make it playable with my DVD player.
>>
>>51508788
right-o, so the last example in >>51508781
assuming you mean the source is some non-dvd video you grabbed from the internet, like an mkv/mp4
>>
>>51508788
convertxtodvd everything else you can do with imgburn
>>
>>51508807
ffmpeg has presets available to help with making standard dvd video, but it'll take a bit of reading/understanding to make a good encode

for example, 2-pass is highly recommended when you have a target size (you want to use all of the dvd's capacity without exceeding it, for maximum quality)
plus you need to consider whether to use PAL or NTSC, any player/tv nowadays will play either, but movies are 24fps, which doesn't fit into either cleanly, so you need to either speed up the video slightly (PAL) or duplicate some frames (NTSC)
>>
>>51508941
PAL also has a resolution advantage (720x576 where ntsc is 720x480), i recommend using PAL for movie dvd's if you can

the speed up is rarely noticable, and you avoid adding additional judder to the picture (playback is smoother)
>>
>>51508781
>>51508807
is dvd standard format a technical term?
>>51508941
oh this is sounding harder than i thought
>>
>>51508993
>is dvd standard format a technical term?
yea, dvd is both a media format (that is, the discs) and a video format (a specification which defines everything that needs to be followed in order to work in any standard dvd player)

for the same reason you can't chuck a bunch of mp3's on a cd and expect it to work on a standard audio cd player, you can't chuck an mkv on a dvd and expect it to work on a video dvd player
>>
>>51508993
>oh this is sounding harder than i thought
there are some easy-mode tools out there, but they vary in quality, i describe a more "proper"/"professional" method
>>
can i solve this easy with greasemonkey?
