The only other one is maxed out, so I'll start


I'm building a pc with a z170 gigabyte motherboard and a skylake intel processor.. what this means is that installing windows 7 would be more difficult. so i was considering just using windows 10, but directx12 is shit performance wise and actually reduces framerate for games

can i keep directx 11? is the jump to directx12 automatic if i install windows 10?

I understand you.

My friend does 4k video editing and he can't use Linux for this and must stick with Windows. The programs for it are so much better in Windows according to him and he has done it for a couple of years.

You should still opt out for VM or dual booting to secure your rights. Windows isn't secure, Blackbird doesn't make it secure. Understand that You have backdoors in a hardware and KERNEL LEVEL when you use any Windows after 95. That's insane breach of privacy, security of the user.

and Windows, of the two "OSes" is the one that's needlessly complex, just a pile of shit legacy code on a pile of shit of legacy code for decades. Developlemt of Vista was a fucking fiasco where they tried to fix it but had to revert back and built it on top of XP for example.

This, Dell D610's, HP 2740's, all machines that were old news by the time win 7 rolled around, and all machines I need to install drivers onto when routinely rebuilding them for freebie handouts.

Are capture cards straightforward and sophisticated enough to route output from my cable box into MPC and upscale it onto a monitor in lieu of using a tv? Further, how is the quality of a monitor relative to a tv? I have seen implication that IPS is an inferior panel tech for tvs, but I get the impression that that is only due to black levels.

Next thing you're going to tell me is Dell, Acer, Toshiba and HP all maintain driver download sites out of the goodness of their hearts. Why would they bother if MS is so on point with drivers? Surely MS could just roll down new drivers as updates instead of leaving it up to the manufacturers, no? And again, zero problems with mint on any of these machines.

It's very unlikely that it's the drive itself, but you could look at another drive and see if that works.

Is asserting that Win 7 works right out of the box, I'm demonstrating that it doesn't. And again, I have never had had to install drivers for a mint install. If I'm honest, being the winbabby that I am, I'd struggle to do it.

None of this changes the fact that the cited chipsets are common as fuck across hardware of that era, business machines or not. Make what you will of the fact MS didn't think to include a generic driver for them like they do for disk and chipset controllers, but it is ludicrous to state that "drivers are there and fit right in" when they are demonstrably not.

It stutters a lot, a lot. On desktops, opening programs, folders, files, playing game, etc. Even games that I could play with no problem before are stuttering.
And another thing that I've noticed is in some games the stuttering only happens when I do an action for the first time (Like picking up x weapon in Hotline Miami or shit like that).

http://ark.intel.com/products/87261/Intel-Pentium-Processor-N3700-2M-Cache-up-to-2_40-GHz

but apparently i have 'Braswell HD Graphics 405' if google what gpu goes with my cpu
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-405-Braswell-Benchmarks-and-Specs.169241.0.html

when i check GPU properties:
Total Available Graphics Memory: 2132 MB
Dedicated Video Memory: 128 MB
System Video Memory: 0 MB
Shared System Memory: 2004 MB

-4GB RAM

-DirectX 12

i understood the' Dedicated System Memory' is my VRAM and used to think i can only run games up to 128 but then i tried this game
RimWorld
http://store.steampowered.com/app/294100/?snr=1_237_querypaginated__104

it runs perfectly and it needs 384 MB of VRAM

so now from what i understand my VRAM is the 'Shared System Memory' and apparently i have 2GB so can i run Stellaris with its 1024MB VRAM requirement???


And another little question:
How come i have DirectX12 when the GPU page (http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-405-Braswell-Benchmarks-and-Specs.169241.0.html) says i can only support DirectX 11.2 ?

Div 2 (red box 1) is a button which needs to be alligned left.

Give the black box position:relative;, give red box 1 position:absolute;top:0px;left:0px;, and give red box 2 a width:200px; or however much you need, and margin 0:auto;.

Position:relative on the black box means that any absolutely positioned elements inside will position themselves not to the document, but the first relative/absolute element, so in this case the red box 1 will be in the top left corner of the black box.

absolute positioning the red box takes it out of the normal element flow, so red box 2 can be centered normally (by making its left and right margins automatic, and giving it a fixed width) without red box 1 affecting it in any way.

I'm really newbie with how things in Ubuntu function, should it not be in that folder? I've seen a lot of documentation suggesting I add .pl to a text doc somewhere but I have no idea what to nano

Convinced he has a virus on his phone despite it being very unlikely that is the case. I will have fun trying to explain that later.

I don't really know what to do in this situation.
I usually just nuke the OS if it gets too fucked, but I can't do that because he doesn't want to lose files, and I can't be assed to back his stuff up. (He also doesn't have his windows key anymore, and I'm not about to teach a retard how to use linux.)

What's the best way to approach this? I'm probably going to stick a USB in with malwarebytes and scan, but what about the network?

I'm troubleshooting a Shitdows 10 workstation that has started to act up after years of good service.

The machine gets heavy use and has decided to not boot after an "unexpected store exception". I made the mistake of not getting a dump of the issue as I had work to do.

I shut down the machine (don't do this usually but for pseudotechnical reasons I thought it would help) and now it refuses to boot.

It gets into preparing automatic repair and hangs. I can't boot into various rescue utilities including an official OS CD, an unoficial windows rescue disk, and a USB rescue disk made by a the official Windows util. Yet I can get GNU/Linux live disks to work fine as well as a memtest iso.

Stress tests your CPU by making it check prime numbers or something like that.

>furmark
Stress tests your GPU.

>memtestx86 or something like that
Tests your RAM.

First update the drivers and see how that goes. If you still get the error, start with stress testing your GPU. If nothing, try CPU. If nothing, let the memtest run over night, or while you away and not using it for 10 hours, since it can take a while. Generally 3 passes is good enough to say the RAM is good, which can take around 8-10 hours, but it's not 100% full proof.

I'm thinking it's a software issue and not hardware issue just yet none the less. I suppose you could use furmark before and after you update/reinstall the drivers and see if you get any results.

Grain of salt reliable. The general rule of thumb is three passes in a row and you are probably okay. But apparently with the way it works there could still be an issue even with those. Even with ten passes there could be one. Although I'd say if the memory is really that bad, it won't get past 1.

The problem with the machine (before it shit itself) was that the user was constantly hitting their RAM limit and since Windows starts swapping very early the machine was constantly swapping.
This is an amateur analysis but it seems that swapping must correlate positively with software corruption compared to a machine that is only using RAM

I've had to use memtest twice and both times it returned thousands of errors within the first few minutes. Removed the faulty sticks and never had a problem since.

Wish this was the case.

tl;dr repair blogpost below
I'm dealing with a strange fuckup where I can't get any official restore tools up and running from external media for some unknown reason.
Every USB/CD made by windows to get me to a network restore hangs on loading while GNU/Linux live ISOs work just fine. This is what I get for relying on baked in Winshit utils for backups/restores...

What happens if you connect the storage medium you have Wincuck installed on to a different computer?

Other operating systems as well as the BIOS recognize the storage medium on the same computer. Haven't tried pulling and mounting on another device.
Fuck ,
If I did periodic drive images I wouldn't have to fuck around mindlessly..
Can only blame my laziness
Are there people that unironically use stock Windows utils to manage things in production?

well, next step is to run a SMART test on the storage medium. Chances are if it's fucked then any external rescue media that is trying to interface with it gets hung as a result.
