    I am sad to have to tell you that your faithful SD card died a humble death today, Mr Blake T.

    i just have an hdmi cable running from the graphics card to the tv i'm using as a monitor

    thinking about it i'm assuming the problem is that the graphics card doesn't have access to the audio part of the motherboard. i just assumed i needed to use the output from it though to get the benefit from it being there. maybe once i install the cd that came with it i can fiddle with that or something. all i've done so far is install windows.

    Just check the Sound properties in the Control Panel and make sure the HDMI output is set to default. I just upgraded my dad's GPU to have an HDMI and it worked well.

    Yeah, that should start working once you install updated video drivers (they usually include the HDMI audio driver) and set it to the default output in the control panel.

    Fun fact I don't know what a molex is

    molex is a company that manufactures a lot of different types of connectors

    it just happens that some of their power connectors are the standard for certain PC components

    I wish that someway, somehow, that I could save every one of us

    So when I'm working at school on print work I just bring my MacBook and work on that

    But when I need to print out the stencils to expose my screen for printing, I have to move over to one of the lab macs. It takes like 5 minutes to open photoshop files that my MacBook opens in like 2 seconds

    This story isn't really related to anything, I just wanted you guys to know that this is total agony

    oh ho ho

    really if you can get a cheap one for twenty bucks, it'll be fine. If it breaks, you're out twenty dollars. There's no sense buying a nice one unless you want a really nice burner or something.

    ok I got the sound working

    but now I got another problem, I can't seem to access my HDD

    it's all hooked up properly and in the BIOS I can see it, but Windows doesn't show it to me

    I have windows installed on my SSD

    all it can see are the SSD and the disc drive

    and for the hell of it I told the computer to boot from the HDD and it loaded windows which just confuses me all the more

  • JayKaosJayKaos Registered User regular
    Well the last bit probably just means it tried to boot from the HDD, failed, and fell back to the SSD. Is the drive formatted?

  • JayKaosJayKaos Registered User regular
    Good question! I forget how to do that in Windows. Look for... a device manager or partition manager or something.

  • Cilla BlackCilla Black Priscilla!!! Registered User regular
    Your BIOS doesn't differentiate from SSD and HDD as far as what it displays. An SSD drive will show up in the HDD space, usually with the manufacturer's name on it.

    If the HDD you're trying to boot to is a brand new drive, you will need to format it. Open the windows start menu and type in computer. Select Computer Management when it shows up, then click on Disk Management. If it doesn't show up, click Storage and it should appear in the drop down list.

    Disk Management shows you all of the disks your computer sees. Your Computer screen only shows drives with letters, but Disk Management will show you unallocated space, the works.

    See how many disks you have. If you only have one, the SSD, your other hard drive is not connected properly. If it has two, and one is all unallocated space, right click on the space and choose "New Simple Volume." This will format the space and give it a letter, and it'll then work normally.

    If the disk has stuff in it, and you're 100% sure you don't need it for anything at all except as storage space, right click and hit Format. THIS DELETES EVERYTHING FROM THE DRIVE. It will then function normally.

    Is there an app out there that I could use to send a wake up signal if I configure the motherboard to wake on LAN?

  • LuvTheMonkeyLuvTheMonkey High Sierra Serenade Registered User regular
    Yeah there's a few apps that can do it, like this one. Your problem would be traversing the router sitting in front of your PC if you're doing it remotely. I know DD-WRT can send WOL signals natively, dunno about the rest.

    I was just thinking of having my phone boot the PC when it gets on my home wireless network as I walk up the stairs.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmm

    ok i have formatted the HDD but i still can't see it anywhere other than the disk manager

    on the disk manager screen it's listed as "Healthy (Primary Partition)", though it's got grey stripes going across it

    I can't open it, but I can "mark it as active." But if I click to do that I get a warning that I shouldn't do that unless I have an OS installed on the drive and that if I don't have one installed then my computer might not work.

    So

    what do I do from here to get at that terrabyte of storage

    God dammit.

    My desktop internet is acting up again. Just tested speed with my tablet. 3.8Mbps down, 611 kbps up.

    Desktop, .09-.38Mbps down, .38 Mbps up.

    was working fine most of the day.

    I do not understand what the hell would cause internet speeds to suffer dramatically on one machine, after rebooting said computer, turning off and then back on wireless, ipconfig renlease/renew/flushdns

    .. I'm almost wondering if Day Z has anything to do with it. Because I think my wireless stuff happened last time I played that game, though it is probably a coincidence.

    In case anyone is interested, those elevation docks are having a pretty good sale on some of their docks that failed QA due to cosmetic issues (dings, scratches, etc)

    If you don't mind the dock having a little 'character' it's a fucking steal.

    I'm looking for advice on the Samsung Galaxy S3, I'm in the market for a new phone to upgrade my iPhone 3gs. I like the look of the S3 and its certainly cheaper than getting another iPhone. Just looking for what people think of theirs if they have one. I've got the use of a nexus 7 occasionally and I suppose the app store and everything hasn't impressed me enough that I'm instantly sold on an Android phone.

    I love my gs3. It's super fast and the screen is gorgeous. I have always loved the google integration for android products, everything is super slick.

    The cons of the phone are always going to be that if you have mac stuff already, the android won't play well like the iPhone will. The market is simply never going to be the same, or as robust, as the apple market.

    But being able to root the phone with the push of a button and the customization inherent to the system out of the box is worth it, too me.

    I sync everything to Google, and they even have an incredible siri competitor now.

    It's really neat how those Elevation Docks were designed so smartly that they could easily adapt to the lightning connector with only a minor mod

    gotta respect that sort of care going into a product

    Really, the only complaint I have with my phone is TouchWiz. I just don't really like it. But you can download apps to replace most of the UI, so it's not really a problem (I'm using Nova Launcher to replace the app drawer and home screens, and WidgetLocker for a custom lockscreen). Plus, customizing your phone can be pretty fun!

    The official Asus Nexus 7 dock is around $40. *shrug*
