You can wipe the current driver with this
http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

and to find the best driver you should use ATI's auto detect program
http://support.amd.com/en-us/download
>>
>>51604792
I'm in college rn and I'm going to be working on the certs very soon now that I have foundational knowledge for many of them, I would just need to study for a few months for each one. But my question stands. how is job availability and security?

I just want to know that if something happens like if I move from one area to another I'll be able to get another job.

I'm not entirely sure how to phrase it. How replaceable it a sysadmin?

>>51604919
>how is job availability and security?
For me here in Ottawa/Canada it's widely available. Ofc if you travel it will always be different.

As for demand yes it is true there are a lot of sysadmins but imo the top notch jobs requires you to have those certificates and not everybody has them. If you're in College you will land a nice job

>>51604943
Those links were for Windows. For Mint you need to use the OS updater. You can also select closed/open source driver in settings (open is default) closed is better

Complete baby here. C++ question about pointers.

Why does this:

int main() {
char c1, c2;
char *pc1,*pc2;


c1 = 'A';
c2 = 'B';
pc1 = &c1;
pc2 = &c2;

cout << "c1 = " << c1 << endl;
cout << "c2 = " << c2 << endl;
cout << "pc1 = " << pc1 << endl;
cout << "pc2 = " << pc2 << endl;


Print out as:

c1 = A
c2 = B
pc1 = A
pc2 = BA

What's with that additional "A" at the end? I wasn't pointing to c1 at all in pc1 right? Isn't it just supposed to bring out whatever c2 is? (pc2 = B)?

I have a particularly long house. My first desktop sits at one end of the house (Yellow dot), where all the WiFi stuff is. Green dot is a guest house that I occasionally rent, and to get the signal to there I have a range extender in the green house.

Now, between red and yellow dot are of course a lot of walls, and I know for a fact that wifi signal to there is not very good. I have the parts for a pretty nice pc in the mail right now and I need to know the best way for me to get sufficient signal for 1080p streaming and decent download speeds from yellow to red. No, I cannot position the new pc anywhere but at the red dot and no I cannot move the modem. Would my general speed suffer a lot from just setting up another range extender maybe halfway between red and yellow? Or should I just bite the bullet and manually wire from red to yellow with a long ass ethernet cable?

Stupid question for you. I built my rig for overclocking. I have a cooler master silent pro 1000w. It's powering three mechanical drives, an ssd, an r9 290, an fx 9590, and two liang d5 variable pumps. I can hit 5.2 with relative stability on all 8 cores and my cooling solution barely breaks a sweat. But if I try and go any higher, I get cpu over voltage errors on my crosshair v.

From what I have read, my vrm's can push 350 watts to the CPU. My vrm's are under a full cover ek water block, so heat isn't an issue. I think my PSU is my current bottle neck. What kind of specs should I be looking at in a beefier PSU? Do the vrm's draw from the standard 12 volt rails? Should I look for a single high wattage rail? Am I barking up the wrong tree entirely?

I do overclock my graphics card, but I am much more gentle with it. So it shouldn't be drawing too much more than stock power.

Depends on the isp and country, some just don't give a crap, in that case VPN are useless.

not literally everything, logins for example are safe over https

>>
>>51611335
>So if my ISP doesnt rat on people, copyright agencies can still find me if I download some popular torrent
They can't possibly find out without literally tapping inthe the ISP wires

>Or they put me on a monitor list and wait me to actually torrent?
Again, depends on country/ISP
I never knew of someone actually getting in trouble for pirating movies/games/songs/programs
But as i said some might get pesky, for example mine made the router reset if i torrented at speeds over 600kb.

or they can send mails as >>51611347 said

My questions, /g/

When I plug in my power chord at the back of my psu it makes a subtle electric buzzing sound, it's not one that seems to indicate immediate danger but since the psu usually goes out with a bang I'm kind of scared. What could it be?

Also my MoBo has only 4-pin CPU power and I'm running an FX 6300. Should I switch to a mobo with 8 pin power (and actual VRM heatsinks to prevent throttling)? Would pic related be worth it? It fits my white case so that's bonus points

This is my build, I'm not only hugely disappointed that my graphics card and monitor are out of stock, but the listed deals are FUCKING AWFUL compared to the regular prices. I've seen better deals on these parts earlier in the year but I didn't take the opportunity because everyone was telling me Cyber Monday deals were gonna be fucking sick.
Is there anywhere at all I can get decent deals on my shit?

Also, on an unrelated note, when trying to open a folder on my current computer, it loads up to this point and gets stuck, it won't go any further, I've been waiting for over an hour to see if this folder would work. All of my other folders are doing the very same, this isn't just the one. What could this be, and how do I fix?

generally governments just block domains like piratebay, they don't do shit about actual torrents

ISP's just observe your traffic patterns, torrents involve a bunch of simultaneous small downloads from different connections, normal web browsing and other shit involves fewer unique connections

You get hunted down and sued by copyright keklords who seed popular torrents of their own material and send takedown notices to all IP's who leech from them, peer2peer connections reveal your IP to your peer. this is what a VPN changes, it hides your IP behind their VPN IP

yes you can do this. the only problem I have is if you try to run a game at >60fps on your 144hhz while having something like a video playing on your 60 hz monitor, the 144hz will run at 60. This happens to me when I play csgo on my 144hz in windowed mode and play a video or watch a stream on my 60hz monitor.

Alright thanks for the heads up. That's interesting that the 144 Hz monitor reverts like that. I don't think I'd be trying to use both at the same time very much but that's good to know. I guess my worst fear is that I'd be forced to run 60 Hz at all times by having both connected.

Guys, help. I fucked up.

Long story short, I had upgraded my BIOS to UEFI some months ago, but my boot was in MBR (BIOS compatibility mode). I decided I'd fix that, so I converted my MBR to EFI using the gpt-fdisk (gdisk) with these commands (there are more, but just to give context):

shrink desired = 200 minimum = 200
create par efi
format fs = fat32 quick # Format this with fat32 file system
assign letter = Z:
exit
bcdboot X:\Windows /l en-us /s G: /f ALL

Thing is, I have an SSD. I was leaving about 30GB unallocated for over-provisioning, and forgot about that. My intention was to shrink the system partition 200MB and make an EFI partition with that much, but it ended up making a 30,2GB EFI partition.

How can I shrink it?

My mama wants to learn what computer parts do, but she has a very hard time figuring out and remembering what does what and why it's important. She's very simplistic, and loves to think about stuff in terms of mommies, daddies and babies. How can I describe components in this sort of way? The Motherboard, CPU, (two sticks of) RAM, hard drive and the GPU, in particular.

I was thinking about saying the case was like the home that the family goes into, and that the fans were like the air conditioning so the babies don't get too hot. I was also thinking of saying the motherboard was like the mommy that kept all of the babies together and made sure they were playing nice together, and the CPU was like the daddy that helped all of the babies do the smart stuff they gotta do.

>would that actually work though

>>51614615
>also I have to tell them I'm recording them right?
depends on what state you're calling
>>
>>51614615
Not sure about having to tell them that they're recorded. I've seen many a video where the person calling had called many times previously prior to the video and went on like it was a normal conversation.

Most customer service roles in any big company make it known to the employee that they could be recorded by the corperation themselves or even the customer.

Anyway, if this is your first time with a shipping error, they'll usually comply. If this is your 5th time something like this has happened and it was due to your fault, they'd most likely say your shit out of luck and the situation will sort itself out.

If they don't seem to want to comply, you can always chargeback the amount on your card. Granted, Amazon will ban your credit card and account but if they're not willing to help you out, there's things you can do to get your money back.

And who knows if what will work, I'm just advising you on what you should do if you truly didn't get your package.

tl;dr I would explain everything that happened to the detail and speak to someone higher up in customer service.

I run a public wifi off a consumer grade router, it constantly drops connections because of the amount of people connecting to it. At least that's my theory. would hooking up an AP to it help alleviate these problems? I was looking at this one:

That's a hard thing to explain.
Use other example, for instance TV.
TV has display, remote control, HDMI ports, modules for ground / satellite signals.
Point out that DVD / BD player, 5.1 audio are "external" and works independently and they are "cooperating" while exchanging the signals between them.
Point out that, that long time ago, there were no remote pilots, ground / satellite signal adapter had to purchased separately, but they tend to be integrated.

>>51614705
Yeah, I haven't contacted amazon about the package yet since it seems like a USPS fuckup, and I don't really wanna bear any ill will to them. Last time I called USPS she said the delivery man said he didn't remember delivering a package to that address (don't know if this was just to keep me happy).

I would've called Amazon or chatted with a rep first.
Once clearing it with them, then I would contant the postal service who is handling your package.

Also, I've bought things from Amazon before only to be given a tracking number that doesn't work and do the same thing you are doing. However, I found out that sometimes UPS will hand USPS extra loads or something and literally has USPS deliver their packages instead. It's weird but it happens in my town, atleast.

You don't need one if your CPU comes with integrated graphics, which Intel Core CPUs do. You might be able to play some older stuff and maybe even modern games (with lowest details) on it if you want, and it will be more than enough for running windows, browsing the web, watching movies, etc.

>Tracking says an attempted delivery was made and a notice was left

I just quit my job at the post office, what happened here was the carrier missed your package while on his route and scanned it as attempted when he got back to the post office so it would show up on his EOD report at the end of the day (big ass parcel log that shows every parcel for every route)
I did that every once in a great big while, but the difference here is that I would just put it in my vehicle and deliver it the next day. Also, you're DEFINITELY not supposed to do that because like the other guy said, Amazon is partnered with USPS. I remember one day I came back from my route and I saw an amazon box just sitting at my station. I brought it to the supervisor and he almost shit a brick when he saw it.

I don't know exactly how much you value low cost over the other stuff you mentioned, but specifically with regards to noise level you can do a lot better.

An SSD instead of HDD is quieter. The power supply is quite inefficient, meaning more heat and thus more noise. The APU is also quite power hungry for the performance, 65W TDP.
Why is the motherboard so expensive? I'd get a cheaper one and use the money to buy more power efficient and silent products instead. Preferably including a dedicated CPU cooler.

Motherboard is a mini-ITX designed to fit into the tiny case. They're all $100+ (also keep in mind these are Canadabux). I would need the HDD for storage space, not particularly interested in spending big bucks on a big SSD.

I'll try to find a cooler and quieter power supply, but the power draw is only around 110-150W so I don't exactly need to go overboard. Thanks for the input.

I think it's a future-proofing upgradeability thing.

If you buy 4 and have 4 RAM slots then you will be replacing at least 1 or 2 and risk incompatible RAM or just more money spent overall.

RAM is one of the cheapest components though so it's not a big deal.

Right now I have a total PoS router provided by my ISP (Frontier). It's a Pace Plc 3800HGV-B, and it's garbage.

Problems:

>It's unreliable.
>It is locked to my ISP's DNS server, which is slow and unreliable.

I wouldn't recommend using it in a web browser. That's the source of most of the security problems. Javascript in a web browser is also super slow and unreliable.

That shouldn't make any difference. Your OS will cache everything anyway. Even if the OS didn't cache anything, disk access wouldn't be the bottleneck.

Try it again without the funky ramdisk setup. It's possible you did it wrong.
>>
>>51616658
>b-but muh 8gb ramdisk..
It seems to be running around 7-8fps now without the dual-pass encode, so that alone has cut time in half. I'll try it again later without the ramdisk, but for now I'm happy just letting it run.

Is it possible to disable search in Google Chrome browser?

In my /etc/hosts file, I have some LAN machines with names like "tv", "filesvr", etc.

Alright first one looks a lot better. A few thing I would change are getting a psu from a better manufacturer, like Evga, corsair, rosewill, Seagate I guess.

Unless you plan on some seriously heavy over clocking, the 4690k stock heatsink should be alright too if you want to save a little money. Pretty good choice of ram manufacturer, but you know what they say, 4x2 is better than 8x1.

I'm not experienced enough, so I will be guessing from here.
- Do You still can perform input via mouse / keyboard?

- It doesn't look like GPU artifact

>>51616963
>Where do You live anon? What is Your ISP? Do You have "external" IP?

Yes, I have an external IP address that's used by the WAN side of my router.

My router also provides a LAN side (192.168.X.X) that I use to provide static IP addresses for all my local machines (5 in total), which are all listed in /etc/hosts. Some of those local machines run Apache, which is why I want to be able to enter the local machine name into Chrome to see its web page.

I don't want to be forced to give my local machines names that "look" like standard domain names to work around the Chrome deficiency -- for example, I just want to call it "tv", not "tv.com".

In other words, I just want to undo Google's GUI mistake of mixing up the concepts of search terms with domain names. For people like me, they're two completely separate concepts, and I want the GUI to reflect that.

Your first 2 questions aren't relevant, but I live in Nevada and I use Cox cable.
