  1. Hello everyone, I installed the FCU not too long ago, maybe a month ago, and it seemed to be working fine for the most part, except I've realized that all my games have mouse acceleration turn ON even though the in-game settings has raw mouse ON and mouse acceleration OFF. Before the update, and ever since I've been gaming, I've used mouse acceleration when I'm not gaming (set the sensitivity and acceleration up using my mouse's software), but when in a game, the game's setting will override the mouse acceleration setting and allow me to play the game without acceleration. This doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Is anyone else is also experiencing this? Thanks.
  2. I am looking for Windows XP updates that have been archived or just stored somewhere and I need to know where can I find all of them to 2001 all the way to 2014 it's for a couple of business computers that needs certain updates to run a certain machine so anybody can give me any links.
  3. As we know that NumLock key causes the Numpad to act differently on basis of its on/off status. I want to ask that can we make keys other than Numpad to do other events on NumLock basis? For example, when NumLock is Off the arrow key act as same arrow key but when NumLock is On the arrow key acts like Enter Key. Is there any software or some registry editing to do this?
  4. WTF is MSDN?

    Now guys, i know you all genius, so can any of you explain what MSDN is? i tried to google it and it just fried my brain good. Preferably explaining it in a simple yet easy to understand way. Cheers ya'll
  5. Cant connect to shared folder on windows

    So i have a windows 10 computer, and a linux computer on the same network, i can share folders on the Linux machine and access them just fine from Windows, but not the other way around. the Linux machine just times out when trying to connect. i can ping both ways just fine. im basically out of ideas here, the windows machine has the firewall disabled, everything can access it rules wise in the firewall and so on... but not even another windows 10 machine can access it. access is set so everyone has full permissions. im out of ideas, google has gotten me nowhere so im asking here now, hope one of you guys know...
  6. After the fall creators update for windows 10 my computer starting doing this thing where it will "Pick up where I left off" after shutting it completely down. It almost feels like it's just hibernating instead of shutting down. This is a pretty annoying problem for me because I never really close any web browsers or anything else I'm doing, I just click shut down in the start menu. In some cases, I can close everything out and it will still open it back up next time I turn the computer on, like the MS word document I was working with last night. Is there any way to disable this?
  7. Fresh OS install procedure?

    Heya Guys. When you install an operating system, wether is be on a new rig or a fresh install on an existing pc, do you have a set procedure you follow as far as setup? As in adjusting things and installing programs? I have recently wised up to saving all the utilities that I routinely download for a new build to a USB drive to save time. If you have a checklist that you follow is it intended for a customer's computer? A gaming rig? Workstation? Thanks guys.
  8. Hey Pals, I am about to replace my 9 year old PC with a new gaming build. I am a kinda retired gamer but would like to play now and then a game. I would play WoW but also some new titles. I do some design work and light video cutting work. Currently, I do that on my 2015 MacBook Pro. I really like to work on my mac but it also getting a bit slow for some tasks. So here my question: I am looking for a "good" PC configuration/build which also allows me to install a different OS besides Windows. I want to play some 3d shooter and MMORPG title and like to do some graphics work. For the budget, I plan something around 1000€ (approx 1200 USD). I just need the computer. Got monitor and peripheries. P.S. sorry for some grammar issues. Best from Berlin, Germany Viktor

  10. Hello, I recently chose to restart my computer, then windows decided I needed an update so it said "Getting windows ready. Don't turn off your computer". 1 hour later I started to get worried since the message didn't change or go away. About 6 hours later the message hadn't changed so I held the power button down to shut the computer down and I rebooted it, only to see it come back to the same message on the screen. It has been 14 hours now. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks
  11. Laptop Recomendations

    I am a college student in the U.S. looking for a new laptop for school and occasional gaming. My budget is $1000 and I am willing to spend a max. of $200 more for performance if it makes a significant difference. The software that I need to run is ArcGIS (ArcMap & Catalog) ArcPro, and ERDAS Immagine. Battery life and the trackpad are not that important to me as I use a mouse and have it plugged in most of the time. Good wireless capabilities are a must. As for gaming, I don't run anything crazy, mostly Overwatch, Civilization, Starcraft, and other MOBAs. Upgradability is also a must. Thanks in advance!
  12. So here was my setup. Cdrive: ssd. Ddrive: storage Edrive: storage Fdrive: storage Here is what happened:1 day ago my F drive was making noises. Some games installed on it were laggy and not running properly. I replace drive with a new drive, also named F. Here is when the problems started: Apparently 1 hour ago when i was restarting, the windows update (15% complete) popped up. It restarted, and the Windows 8 installer popped up... It couldnt locate my boot drive apparently, so I unplugged all my drives except for C drive. Restarted, same thing. Win8 bootloader, even with ssd as priority boot. Shows 2 uefi boot options "locked" and my ssd. Here is what im doing: Making a winmediacreation usb drive to hopefully sort this out. But has anyone ran into this/know what could have caused it?
  13. Wireless Trackpad for Windows 10

    Hey guys, I am currently looking for a (wireless) trackpad for my desktop pc, preferably with windows precision drivers. I have already researched a little bit, but the only real reviews I found were a few years old and so I came to the conclusion, that there haven`t been any new products in this niche. So now i am turning to you guys, hopefully to find a solution to my problem.

  15. Win XP booting problems

    I have an old netbook Acer Aspire One KAV60 runing windows XP which doesn't want to start/boot. When turning it on it displays that windows didn't start successfully, because of a recent hardware/softwade change. Under that it shows a few options (none of which work): Safe Mode Safe Mode with Networking Safe Mode with Command Promt Start Windows Normally Selecting option 4.(Start Windows Normally) goes to the windows xp loading screen and after a few moments it bluescreens and restarts. Selecting options 1-3 shows this "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\system32\drivers..." after which it bluescreens and restarts, repeating the cycle. I thought that maybe windows got corrupted or something like that so I decided to reinstall windows. Anyways I burned an .iso on a memorystick using Win To Flash (since it is a netbook the only way to install windows is to use a memorystick because there is no DVD Drive) and pluged it in the laptop. I had no problems until I got to the formating/partitioning stage when my HDD partition wasn't present. Only my flash drive was recognised as a partitionable space.*I'm shure that I'm doing everything right because this is not my first time doing it.* So my question is has the HDD somehow stopped working and it needs replacement or is the problem something else. Ohhh and also I disassembled the laptop to unplug and plug the HDD, thought I should say that, although it didn't do anything hah.
  16. So I am having issues when trying to transfer files between my two servers. One server is a Dell R710 and the other is a whitebox build. Both are equipped with Mellanox Connect x2 10GbE adaptors (only nic the server can see, all others are dedicated to Hyper-V), both are running win server 2016, both are plugged into a Quanta LB4M switch. (2x10GB SFP+ 48x1GB RJ45) The speeds transfering from any other PC to either one of the servers is fine and seems to be working as expected. The issue is when trying to transfer files between the two servers themselves. I also have an issue now where I can't setup an iSCSI connection between them using the 10GbE connections. But have no problem connecting to other machines using the same connections. It's almost like, whilst the servers can see each other on the network, they can't talk to each other or there is something stopping them from transmitting too much data. I am sure it's something in the configurations that I have messed up somewhere, or a limitation of the switch (which would be annoying) but I have no idea where to start looking. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Hello all, After being somewhat disappointed with windows 10 game made, I started looking for solutions that would ACTUALLY make a difference in performance during more "cpu bound" games, and I believe I found one. The solution is to set games as "high" priority in task manager. For those who don't know, setting a program's priority higher will give it more cpu time, resulting in a boost in cpu performance. However there is one major issue with this, priorities in task manager are not saved by windows, once you reboot you have to manually go back into task manager and reset all your priorities. Until today, I found the solution that should be the standard for all PC's. Its a program called "Prio", AND IT ACTUALLY LETS YOU SAVE PROGRAM PRIORITIES!!! (Link: https://prnwatch.com/prio/ ) Once you install it here's what to do (I'd recommend rebooting after installing just to avoid any wierd glitches) 1. Open the game you are having performance issues with and minimize it 2. Open task manager 3. Go into the "Processes" tab 4. Right click on the game in the list in the "background processes section" 5. Click on "Go to details" 6. You should now be in the "Details" tab, with the game already highlighted. Just scroll until you see it 7. Hover over "Cpu Priority" and select "High" Make sure "Save priority" is also checked (I attached a pic of what it should look like) 8. Close down task manager and you should be all set to go! I also would suggest doing this to certain background programs that take up CPU time, but instead setting their priority to low so they take up less resources (I set the steam bootstrapper and Razer Synapse to low priority for example) Well, let me know if this made any big difference in games like GTA V. I'm curious of your guy's results. (For the record, my CPU is an i5 4570, if you're rocking a newish i7 you might not see the same improvements I did, but if you're using a 4 core i5 or an i3 then i'd HIGHLY recommend this) That is all, take care!
  18. So basically I'm just done downloading 27GB game from torrent. My PC was decrypting the .rar file, and it suddenly freeze for 30 minutes. I force restart the Laptop and now its stuck at "diagnosing PC" and Blue screen with "windows did not start properly". I have tried all possible methode except for "Clean reset". I tried: 1. Startup repair 2. System restore (somehow it did nothing after i pressed "done") 3. Startup setting is unreachable because of the automatic repair failure 3. Go back to previous version is also unavailable 4. I tried rebuilding the bcd and fixing mbr, still nothing 5. Startup repair stuck at "attempting repair" screen 6. And the easiest repair "restart" also doesn't work. Please help me, have anyone have experienced this? what can i do and how? This laptop literally contains all my work rightnow and i DON'T have installation drive & any spare harddisk/PC
  19. I installed Windows 10 clean as the upgrade failed, and activated my key; however I have since found that I no longer have a SLEEP option in the power options, Power&Sleep page in the settings, or in any other power option menu. Does anybody have any info or experience regarding this problem?
  20. A strange experiment

    Hi, I have an old iPad first generation, and I was planning on doing an experiment with it, would it be possible to run a version of Windows on it? I heard that Windows 10 now has the ability to run on ARM CPU's now, and I was thinking that I could maybe get windows to possibly install so I could do some file management around the house (I'd use a phone, but I am a poor, poor boy.) This is just for experimenting purposes.
  21. So I read about Miracast over infrastructure and it says that if you have windows 1703 that the feature is included but for some reason my pc tells me my system doesnt support Miracast when I go to my "projecting to this pc" settings. I just wanna use my tv with my pc
  22. Haywire touchscreen 'broke; laptop

    Hi, My sister dropped her laptop a few months ago and the touchscreen broke so it's been disabled. I updated WIndows and it got past most of them but when it came to the lock screen, the touchscreen enabled itself and it locked me out. So I restarted the laptop using the button and now it comes up with the "Windows could not be installed. To install Windows on this computer, restart the installation.". I can't get past it because of the touchscreen. WHat do I do?
  23. my old windows xp is really slow and i added like 5 GB or Virtual ram and its still slow.will linux make it faster? and is there more ways to make it faster.
  24. So, I currently have a 1TB WD Blue drive which has about 50GB left. I'm getting myself an SSD (Samsung 850 EVO 500GB), finally, and am planning on installing Windows and commonly played games/programs onto it. However, I can't simply clone my HDD, since it has more shit on it than can fit on the SSD, so I was planning to simply install Windows onto the SSD, then delete all of the Windows files off of the HDD. Then uninstall some games and commonly used programs (POE, web browsers, GIMP, LibreOffice, etc.) and reinstall them to the SSD. I'm also planning on getting a 4+TB HDD early-mid 2018 to prevent further issues of running out of space. So, my questions are: 1. Can I simply do a fresh install Windows to the new SSD, as if I've never installed Windows before, then delete all old Windows files off of the HDD - i.e. the 20+GB Windows folder? 2. Would programs still installed in the Program Files/(x86) folders still work without Windows installed on that drive? 3. Would other programs work as well - e.g. my other Steam games are installed in a separate location (still on the HDD drive, though)? 4. Also would the now old User folder be essentially the same as any other folder - i.e. the default Documents/Downloads/Music/etc. folders would be based on the new(?) User folder I assume would be created when I install Windows on the SSD? Also, I'm fairly certain my copy of Windows is connected to my Microsoft account, if that makes any difference, and it's not an OEM copy. Also, I don't use the search function on Windows, so I don't particularly care if that gets somehow fucked, if that may be a problem. Please don't tell me I have to uninstall every program, somehow back up all other files to somewhere else, then clone the HDD once it's nearly empty. Unless I truly have to do that.
  25. Previously, it was cheaper to just buy a few modestly spec’ed PCs instead of getting a high core-count PC and setting up multiusers environment. But now with enormous multicore CPUs being affordable, we thought it makes more sense than ever for a single PC to serve multiple users at the same time. We can plug in multiple monitors, keyboards and mice and just use. Me and my fellow teammates think this is the future, and we wanted to make this concept easily accessible to everyone. I want to hear what you all think of this. While there are many guides on how to set this up, almost all of those are overwhelmingly complicated - matching hardware spec and using advanced Linux techniques. As a person who was interested in this tech years before 6 cores, 8 cores CPUs for mainline was a thing, I can comfortably say that UX was/is horrible. We had to use multiple graphics cards since QEMU’s integrated graphics stack is not performant, and USB devices was a nightmare, especially when used headlessly. We wanted to avoid all of these major issues and allow non-techies to use this advanced tech as well. People can just avoid using these type of solutions and get cheap alternatives such as Raspberry Pi and Chromebook. But still, there are nothing like running a full and proper desktop OS such as Windows, and that’s what we’re targeting at. Using multi-session RDP is also not comparable, imo, as that still needs some kind of a client device to remotely login. I know many people would be wondering how gaming will be handled. While the majority of people here would be gamers, we’re currently targeting value over performance - people who’re fine with IGP-level performance. This mean that we want to enable multiple OSes to use a single graphics card. This needs a virtualized graphics device to be passed to the OS, which in term, means worsened graphics performance. We have been able to achieve 1080p60-ish performance using a single RX460 with 4 concurrent users, while the stock graphics driver in QEMU - QXL doesn’t even come close. We want to wait until SR-IOV powered graphics cards to be a thing before experimenting with gaming. I’m sorry if this sounds way too much like an advertisement, but I’m genuinely curious. What do you think? We think this is the future. If there was a simple and elegant solution to this concept, we think the entire world can save some serious amount of resources(hardware, power, wastes, etc).
