Hey /g/ i have a very unique problem. Windows 10 just freezes and i have to restart my computer to use it again.

I think the problem is my mobo in some way, like I don't have the configuration quite right (UEFI), I've already tested or replaced every other piece of hardware. Check disk comes up clean, Temps, voltages should be good.

I have the latest BIOS version and have all my drivers up to date. I have even RMA'ed my mobo and yet I still have this issue. I've searched around with others for my problem and there are no solutions.

I was able to stave of the problem by changing the amount of memory the onboard graphics but that has stopped working

It could be the processor, but I did run the intel diagnostic and it turned out fine.

Also by luck I do have a compatible processor that I found in the trash at work. No idea if it could just make my system worse though.

Another idea I had is that it could be related to the temperature. Last year i RMA'ed my board around this time because it was happening a bunch. It has only happened a lot during the summer and fine during the other months.

Test it with another cable. It think it is fairly common for them to wear out. It happened to me with a gigabyte card. Also check the reviews to see if other people have had the problem. If you have 2 display ports can't you just use the other one? check the Driver suite about the connections.

How to use ASCII in a password? The Internet company came and updated the firmware of my modem. The old WiFi password was like "this is my password" and when I try to set it up again it won't accept it, but it will accept "thisismypassword". The error says that I gotta use "between 8 and 64 ASCII characters or 64 hexadecimal digits", so I figured that there should be a way to represent the spaces as ASCII characters, something like "this[Alt+32]is[Alt+32]my[Alt+32]password", But what is the correct syntax?

you just have to buy a domain name (and rent a server if you don't want to host it yourself).
If you rent a server you'll be able to put your files using FTP and they should provide a client (probably web based) if you have a database.
It isn't confusing, don't worry too much. It's easy.

For sex:

Go to college town.

Find house party.

Go in.

Ask if you can party (they always always say yes)

If there are lots of black people find another party because the police WILL be showing up.

Find and talk to drunk girls. You should be able to tell within 10 minutes or so if they are down, if not then move on to the next girl. Don't be too obvious because you will catch flak from alpha-chads

Get laid.

Tip: don't get drunk, but drink (+2 Charisma and Whiskey Dick perk)

Tip 2: wrap it up because you are NOT the first guy they have been with

I have attempted this 3 times and gotten laid each time. The sex feels okay but those hookups lead to uncomfortable situations. You are better off talking to girls and being yourself and eventually finding someone who can tolerate you and will let you play with her tits all night as you have deep conversations. Thats the best feel, man. Good luck to you.

We don't have much concrete info on the rx 480 yet, and the leaks are all over the place. My gut assumption is that the rx 480 would be ok for 1440p 60fps *right now*, but you might have to turn down some settings in some games to achieve that and it won't be as future proof as the 1070.

As far as Zen goes, if it performs at least as well as a Skylake i5 then you'll be good. But again, we'll have to wait to get any concrete information on its performance.

Hello, fellas. It's been some years since I've used Wangblows, been switching distros non stop recently. The ones I liked the most were Debian and OpenSUSE. But since my computer is pretty shit, I'd like something extremely minimal, but I still want to get shit done.
So I have two stupid questions:
1-
I never wandered into the netinst world, is there a good guide for a minimal bloat installation for, let's say, Debian? I don't want anything grand in this shit, just have a system that won't crash and maybe one or another game with WINE. I'd rather have a DE, but if there is a good enough guide, I could tinker with WMs and shit.

2-
I'm thinking of installing a W10 partition as well. I don't think I'll use it as much as I'm expecting, but well, I don't have shit to do in this weekend. I format some computers for neighbors and just use some shit Windows activator like KMSpico, is it recommended? Which way is the less bloated way for having my fresh W10 install? Also, can I have some "no botnet" guides for W10?

It kind of became more than two questions, but whatever. Many thanks in advance.

I'm picking programming back up after quite a few years, and I'm using an IDE that has autocomplete features. I'm absolutely positive this is a stupid question, but what the hell is the point of auto-completing things like " and ) if I have to type through them anyway? There doesn't seem to be a keypress that skips past them. On top of that, sometimes it will fuck up and add an extra " or something.

Thanks for the input; I can see why it's useful for more complex programs when it does things like fill in variables and such. I just don't see the point specifically for quotes and parenthesis when it makes me type them anyway. All it seems to do is mess up my typing rhythm as I try to make myself get used to typing something that is already there.

Is it just for when you already have a lot of code written out and are mostly moving around the whole document and adding things? As a person doing some basic programming tutorials and just typing lines, it currently feels like it doesn't help in any way.

I am having an issue where my system is using the Colemnak keyboard layout, but when I press the Windows key to perform any shortcut, it switches back to the qwerty layout.
An example is Win + R, which opens the Run dialog. After the shortcut, the input box for the Run dialog is utilizing the qwerty layout.

Anyone have any ideas as to what I should look into in order to change this behavior? The registry is a likely place, but it is large.

I made a short video of the issue.
In it I press Win + P ( the R key on the qwerty layout ) and then Win + R according to the Colemak layout. The On-Screen Keyboard displays the issue I am facing.

Not installing Gentoo, but Slack 14. I am trying to install Slackware on a 500gb HDD with Windows 7. I am wanting to overwrite everything and have only Slackware on the system. I'm booting from a USB optical drive with the Slack ISO. It's on a Thinkpad x140e, it is a UEFI firmware laptop. In the boot setup you can boot from UEFI, Legacy BIOS, or both. When I select UEFI it has options to boot from UEFI or Both based off of load progression, then there is an option for CSM which I disabled since Slack 14.1 supports UEFI and I shouldn't need Legacy support since an MBR should never be needed (I think?).

Boot options are listed as such:

UEFI only:
- UEFI only
- CSM disabled

When I load the Slack install disk at thr bottom of the screen says "Welcome to GRUB!" ...and that's it. One time I typed e based off an online instructions for being stuck on this screen. I think it's a misaligned GRUB boot screen to load huge.s

Anyway once it is booted to the keyboard screen, hitting enter, then logging in as root, I get to the partitioning phase. This is where I am stuck. Since my firmware is UEFI I figured my partitioning type would be GPT. So using gdisk or cgdisk asks me the file path. /dev/ ... sda, sda1, ada, ada1, hda, hda1 all bring nothing. When I fdisk -l nothing happens, when I cfdisk -l it says it can't be opened and FATAL ERROR.

What am I doing wrong? I assumed the Slack install would detect my HDD, then allow me to partition the entire drive for Slack and a swap.

Now, heres the story. We have Wifi on our Home router, like most routers, and this Wifi worked with all my Android devices (including the problem device) for the last few months.

A few weeks ago the Galaxy stopped being able to Update or Download apps from the Play Store. (Not entirely correct, it seems to still download some apps, however this takes upwards of 10-15 minutes just for a small (10-20mb app)

Following the usual troubleshooting, I have tried everything listed above.

3 other Android devices work without issue. I have factory reset my router again today. And yet it still doesnt work.

Normally I'd assume a router issue, but its strange that all other android devices can download without issue.

However assuming a phone issue, a Factory Reset should correct that too.

So, are there any DNS/ARP files that aren't changed? Or am I looking in the wrong place? Any help would really be appreciated.

Is this normal? Should the os partition be faster and the other one slower?

Windows Defender is usually "good enough". The benchmarks usually are sourced by competing AV vendors and make them excel in being overly aggressive. You'll likely get a lot of false positives using those.

Generally the OS provides good methods to stay with clean software for the users that do need an antivirus. Mac has its app store. Windows has its app store as well as a pretty good default AV, and Ubuntu's default repositories all have the source code open.

When you're moving a file from within the same partition, it doesn't actually move the bits and bytes around. There's a sort of register which contains information about file locations. It alters this registry instead of writing the bits all over again.

This does not happen when moving a file from partition to partition, because it's the partition, or rather the file system with which the partition is formatted, that holds this information.

The speed of copying files over sounds strange. If you have a USB key lying around, try copying a file of around 100MB over from both partitions, and see what the speed is at the last second or two of copying?

It means that software can deny transmission of content over that particular cable.
If it's open source, you can simply remove the check of course. If it's closed source, it can mean that a DVD does not want to be played.
A solution, if that happens, could be to get a little device in-between your tv/monitor and computer, or to pirate your media.

if you want them to be compressed, yes. use lzma2.
unless you are running low on space, why waste time with it.

most modern compression algorithms get you pretty similar results.

If it's 50 bucks, there's no guaranteed fix, it's still an old screen with a history of breaking down due to age, and all you've gotten is a bit better resolution.

I cleaned the old thermal paste of my laptop heatsink.
However I afterwards realised that I don't have any new thermal paste left so I used a piece of plastic to grab some fresh thermal paste from one of my old graphics cards that I recently changed it and spread it on the laptops' cpu. I managed to cover the whole die with a decent amount of paste and it appears to be fine for now.

Should I be worried that it will overheat?

After MS announced that they are finally bringing their IP for win 10, im going to upgrade my win 7 ultimate pirated to win 10
I have these questions
1) will i have to install my executables again like dark souls 3(pirated), steam, steam games, after burner and other softwares. Since they become obsolete in other windows
2) will my C drive(windows drive) get formatted and all my save files and other shit will be gone
3) will i have to install every other driver again like network, gpu, mobo
4) will upgraded win 10 be stable compared to fresh format install
5) [optional] can i change my store region to russia or any other country where games are cheaper

theoretically after the upgrade you should be able to use the pc like you always did. however only sometimes it works this way. your windows upgrade may fail completely , it may be unstable or it could be fine. Hard to tell. Just be careful when updating after installing windows 10. We allowed a pc to update after a clean installation (we kept the old files in the windows.old folder) and after the update it was completely formated. That is also quite rare to happen.

Whats the deal with DACs? I was playing games with my headphones the other day and notice that even when system volume was on max it wasnt that loud, quite annoying!

Yeah sure that's fine! Try running Cinebench again while checking if your GPU throttles by running something like GPU-z and checking the sensors tab.
Temperatures don't really matter too much, as long as you can sustain your workload.

What kind of headphones do you have?
Most headphones are designed to be able to be driven by most consumer media players. Which means phones, on-board motherboard audio and laptops.
If you know your headphones you know if you really need as big an amplifier as that FiiO.

Try having a budget in mind, figuring out what headphones you're using, and then cheaking head-fi (google it) and maybe /hpg/.
