Re: Hello

Hahaha I remember Nubius as well, can't believe he's married now. I guess I was about 17 or 18 the last time I kicked the tires around here and I'm now 23 so I suppose it isn't that surprising,...

Hello

Hello everyone,

Used to hang out here all the time years and years ago, got busy with various things and slowly dropped off the face. Don't know if anyone is still around from back then, but I...

Re: Blue Screen of Death

Well they should be enabled by default, however it should be somewhere under advanced BIOS settings or integrated periphirals.

Re: Blue Screen of Death

A single click is normal for some drives. It should be obvious to tell if it's spinning or not, just put your hand on it and you can feel the vibrations. Just make sure that all SATA channels are...

Re: Any Other Computer Shop Owners Out There?

I am employed at a small service and repair center, but I don't own it.

That's correct, there is little money in sales because it is difficult to compete with larger retailers who buy in bulk and...

Re: Blue Screen of Death

Windows XP install does not have driver support for SATA or SCSI controllers, you need to manually load your SATA or RAID device drivers from a floppy prior to the installation. You will be looking...

Re: 7200.10 vs. 10k

Yet another advocate of the 10,000RPM drives here, you really need to use one personally before you can comment on them. One thing that everyone seems to confuse is that you buy a faster rotating...

Re: Capabilities of a 6800

I ran FEAR at 1024x768 with both a 6800GS and 6800GT with all settings on high, save for soft shadows, and it was playable. That said, both those cards were overclocked fairly high and even at stock...

That was always their policy, I know because I had to move tons of crap to a forum called "threads requiring attention" or something to that extent. Spam was always deleted right away but everything...

Re: 45nm Core 2 Quad?? DX10

I don't understand why some people care so much about the process size when they don't even understand it.

NM is short for nanometer. Any reference to process size in nanometers refers to the...

Re: A question about raid 0

In reality there are 1,073,741,824 bytes in 1 gigabyte
Most hard drive manufacturers will label a drive with 1,000,000,000 bytes as 1 gigabyte and so on
Your drive is probably 250,000,000,000 bytes...

Re: Intel Itaniums will skip to 32nm..

The process size has nothing to do with instruction set support dude. The final design for the Itanium is always going to be based on an AI-64 instruction set and will not support x86 natively.

Re: Intel Itaniums will skip to 32nm..

Itaniums are 64 bit processors and only 64 bit processors. Xeons, Opterons, Athlon 64s, Pentium 4s and Core 2s all use the x86-64 instruction set which is backwards compatible with x86-32. Itaniums...

Re: Intel Itaniums will skip to 32nm..

Chips aren't getting smaller, they are simply decreasing the size of the transistors so they may fit more on a similar sized die as that is the easiest way to increase the processing output of the...

Re: First boot up

If you tried powering it at 230v and you are located in a 115v region you've already killed the power supply and flipping the switch back where it should be won't change anything. My guess is you...
