New thread by Norm X[_2_]
Hi, ?Does anyone here have experience with ASRock OC Tuner: http://www.asrock.com/Feature/OCTuner/index.asp Selecting the version for AMD RAM and a non AMD MOBO might be confusing. However, just to be safe, I guess I should try the version for my MOBO first.

I powered on my backup 1TB hard drive this AM after not using it for a few days, and I noticed it stayed acrive for a good 15 minutes with its blue LED flashing, and making noise. Now it is quiet. Why was that? Curious. Johnny

DVI ? by philo
I mentioned about a week ago I built a new machine using an Asrock J3455M mobo. Got it all working using Win7 and a standard VGA output. I then decided to use the DVI-D output rather than VGA and get no signal at all. I am using a DVI-D cable and confirmed it works because I can put in a

New mobo by philo
My main machine is quite ancient and I've decided up finally break down and upgrade. My present mobo has a dual core CPU and 6gigs of RAM. In theory the board supports 8gigs of RAM but in actuality I cannot get it to work reliably with more than 6gigs. It was so old it did not even have USB-3 so...

Digital audio by philo
In all the years I've been working on computers I've never dealt with digital audio and now I've seen the same problem twice this month. One machine runs Vista and the person uses it just to run some specific hardware and the other is a run of the mill Win7 machine. In both cases, the users...

I just picked up a nice, used Linksys EA6350 at a garage sale. Definitely faster than the router I have been using, but one thing that annoys me at many routers is the inability to turn the routers wireless off an on ON the router itself (NOT in the software). Does anyone know if this one can,...

alternative to Verizon FIOS G-1100 router? by R2D4
After having DSL for many years, Verizon installed the 50/50 double play FIOS yesterday (I got Internet and phone only, no tv nor plan to anytime soon). They also provided the Fios G1100 router, but I'd prefer to use my own. I currently had a Netgear N300 left over from another use and I have...
