  1. Help me find the One Backpack To Rule Them All

    I'm in the market for a new backpack. I have a chronic back injury and hauling a ton of notebooks, books, and computer equipment around on my back is really bad for it. The back injury costs me a...
  2. Re: Urgent - Something is eating my bootloader and it's not the boot disk!

    Hello!

    Surprisingly a solution out of the mid-90s appears to have fixed my issue. I ran a chkdsk on everything. It found plenty. It did something with something that I probably don't want to know...
  3. Re: Urgent - Something is eating my bootloader and it's not the boot disk!

    Removing the drives from RAID-1 (Mirroring) makes me 2^64 kinds of nervous, I have my e-mail and stuff junctured onto them and after an incident a few weeks ago, I don't have a full backup of my...
  4. [Solved] Something is eating my bootloader and it's not the boot disk!

    Hey guys and gals!

    I'm in the middle of a semester. I've had a bad start. I had an exam today. I have a presentation tomorrow. The commonality between the two is not the subjects but the utter...
  5. Re: What's everyone playing/gamer looking for a group!

    I ended up tapped out, unfortunately. I'll look at getting a copy around Spring Break!
  6. Re: What's everyone playing/gamer looking for a group!

    Is BF4 on sale anywhere?
  7. What's everyone playing/gamer looking for a group!

    Hey all!

    So I'm fresh out of my first full time semester at a large university. It completely ate me up - I disappeared from the groups I gamed with for too long and they've all moved on and...
  8. Re: Dead video card pt 2 - replacing thermal pads

    If it's working for a bit and dies again with the same error, I'll need to reflow it again. This card's gotta last me until Summer.

    A continuation from here: http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?481207-solved-Video-card-with-birdshot-patterned-square-artifacts-at-2D-desktop

  10. Re: [solved]Video card with birdshot patterned square artifacts at 2D desktop

    My first thought while I was watching these errors jump around was "Wait. This card's working. There's something going on between the GPU and the monitor."

    It's wild to think of anything...
  11. Re: [solved]Video card with birdshot patterned square artifacts at 2D desktop

    Yeah. That's likely too even though I ran the card undervolted for quite awhile and kept it on a highly aggressive fan profile that kept it under 75C. GTX 480s were designed to run up to 90C if I...
  12. Re: Video card with birdshot patterned square artifacts at 2D desktop

    Compounding matters: It's rendering highly complicated scenes in blender just fine. I have it rendering a piece at a 5000x5000 resolution with 750 samples per pixel. It's been going for well over a...

    Solution:
    Using Blender 3D I was able to torture test the card in a way that didn't immediately crash the system. I've gotten several errors in functions cuMemAlloc and cuMemFree, which indicates...

    Re: Troubleshooting a GTX 480

    Actually, I intended to run memtest because of the issue, but I ran out of time. That would be hilarious, sort of, if my RAM was dead and making a card ghost.

    What's wild is it didn't just...

    Troubleshooting a GTX 480

    Okay...

    It's 3 AM on a Thursday. I just had my night go from alright-but-stressful-in-a-good-way to really bad. In the middle of a game, I disconnected. My screens still worked but I couldn't...

    Re: Anyone tried using a GPU in a Xen VM?

    Something ate my reply. I swore I typed one up explaining this and went into explicit detail!

    Kepler's virtualization should let you map one video card to multiple VMs for acceleration. This would...

    Re: Anyone tried using a GPU in a Xen VM?

    Nope, it lets the VM use the GPU natively. So you'd theoretically be able to game (or 3D render) in a VM.

  20. Re: New PSU - Should a wire ever cross itself on an inductor?

    Alright, it appears to be fine! I thought I'd remembered that inductor wires weren't ever supposed to cross. I think my memory is mistaken. Great. I'm getting old, but at least my computer's getting...
