    Is it the motherboard that's broke?

    Let me walk you through what's going on. 1) Computer has trouble booting, so we just wouldn't shut it off as sometimes it'd fail to start and just reboot itself before windows loaded. 2) One day it decided to just say screw it and rebooted itself (like hardware reboot) and got stuck in an...

    Windows 10 problems ONLY on SSD

    So I got my laptop with windows 10 on a hybrid HDD (I think 8 or 10GB SSD cache + 500GB disk). I was having audio issues but after messing around with the audio drivers for a while I fixed that. Well, got a Samsung EVO 850 SSD (250GB) and used their software to clone the install to the SSD...

    Canadian campaign - the missing question

    With the federal election campaign officially on track, what is something you feel is blatantly missing from the discussion? For example, one area I am frustrated to see is the complete and utter lack of discussion around the pandering of corporate interests and loss of democracy for "free...

    Do you care if mITX case supports 160mm PSU?

    Just curious with the case talk if people even care about having the option to install a 160mm PSU or if they're fine with the SFX as the only option.
