    Odd POST behavior from Dell laptop

    Customer of mine brough back her 2018 Dell Inspiron 5775 that would no longer POST, not even to the Dell logo. Warranty ended March 2019. Plugged in my monitor, no POST. Took out the back panel, checked for obvious board damage. None. HDD was backed up to my server using an external caddy with...

    Want to Buy Found tx.

    For the Mini-ITX, DDR3 ram is looked after and a low power CPU. Same for the NUC, nothing fancy - either is to replace a dying embedded Celeron motherboard that is my garage rig. Price to be discussed.

    Where to buy [enter component here]?

    I've had enough. I've looked hi and low, can't seem to find what I'm looking for. So I'm starting this thread for others too that may be looking for advise about where to find - hard to find? - components, whatever they may be. In my case, a good, high-quality universal, regulated voltage...

    Kudos to Epson

    Usually we bitch and complain about our favorite hardware companies, but this time-around I'm sending a dozen of roses to Epson and they basically have me as a customer for a very long time. My old WP-4530 started leaking yellow ink a month or so ago. Bear in mind that the printer was bought in...

    1070 folding

    Can this be right? I haven't GPU folded in a while, and know folding is quite demanding in regards to a card's stability, but look at that clock... been folding for over a week without a single hiccup. Core temp has not reached 60C ever since first WU.

    re. http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/display-units/71499-dizziness-nausea-while-gaming.html... new monitor did nothing, and every single trick out of my googlefu came back negative.

    Dizziness, nausea while gaming?

    Lately, while playing even short stints I suffer from nausea, dizziness effects even after only a few minutes. What's weird though, is that not all games have those same effects. A few years ago I used to play a lot of WoW (40-man Raids lasting hours on end), same for BF3 which I felt no ill...

    Internet slow access, downtime?

    Using Videotron in Montreal, and ever since moving back on the island I get these slow 'net accesses - for example: Mail server time-out, but a few minutes later works perfectly. Simply opening a new tab in IE with Google as the Home page can take 30 seconds, sometimes it's instantaneous...

    Proper hardware to play mkv SBS 3D files?

    Buddy of mine asked that I design a rig capable of playing mkv SBS 3D movies he has. If I understand well, this means a resolution of 3920x1080, right? With movies saved on a server (LAN), he has this on hand: Receiver: Pionner VSX-42 3D capable. Projector: Epson 5030UB 3D ready. I was...
