A few things that might help get those questions answered faster.
Be specific when you are talking about something - "my mp3 player is broken HALP!?"
- What kind of mp3 player, (brand and model)
- What isn't is doing now that it was before (the reason it is "broken")
- What were you doing to it last, right before it broke.. Did you maybe drop it?.. get it a little wet? try to flash the firmware?!

These all help in determining what can be done.
These rules do not just apply to MP3 players.
Just be as specific as possible and don’t leave stuff out, we want to be helpful here, try not to make it a scavenger hunt for clues!
These same rules apply for other situations like “I got a new motherboard and now my computer doesn’t post!”
-old motherboard model
-new motherboard model
-ram (speed)
and any other component you might have in there (most of the other stuff usually won’t matter but list what you know.

This highly useful addition to both Firefox and Pale moon has stopped working.
I am running firefox 43.0.1 and Palemoon 27.2.0 and have tried both 2.0.19 and 2.0.18.1-signed.1-let-fixed with shit results.
Is there anything that will allow me to download images / pdf's etc as easily?

This is gonna be hard to explain, but i'll do the best I can. Basically, I have a desktop computer, but it doesn't have a wifi card. Because of this, I use an ethernet chord and connect the desktop to a laptop. This laptop has a wifi card, which is connected to a router wirelessly. There are certain restrictions with my place of living which restrict me from connecting the computer straight to the router. Is there some sort of way i could use a vpn on my desktop to mask my ip? I know I could run a vpn on the laptop and it would work, but the laptop is really damn slow and i don't want to go through the trouble of installing the vpn on it. It's fedora 23 btw, and my desktop is windows 10.

I'm using an internal graphics card, but I already bought an internal wifi card. The wifi card is PCE-N15 PCI-E adapter. I don't know about the graphics card, it was given to me from a friend.
Are there free vpn's that will work over the bridge like you said? I want to limit my spending as much as possible.

Also, I could try to get rid of the graphics card completely and just use my motherboard so i could install the adapter(i wouldn't really want to considering it would probably hurt the cpu to process that much), but every time i've tried that the monitor just goes black and I can't get it to work.

Personally I don't trust free VPN services - it costs money to run a VPN server and provide bandwidth and they've got to pay for it. The obvious way to do it is to monetize your traffic. So I don't know if there is a free VPN service that supports double or triple NAT without any router changes - my gut says no, simply based on the way VPN is supposed to work, but I simply haven't looked. There may be a free VPN service that spies on your data that cuts the necessary corners so that you wouldn't have to make any router changes. Since you seem adverse to making changes on your laptop creating the necessary fixup rules are probably out.

Your ideal solution would be to have the desktop directly on the network. Assuming you have a USB 3.0 port I really don't see the harm in getting a USB adapter, it should be reasonably fast and work about as well as an internal NIC.

I don't know why your motherboard video doesn't work, perhaps you disabled motherboard video in the BIOS/UEFI. On my ASUS board I have the option to disable it, enable it, and enable it when a video card is present. At work on my prebuilt I have no options - it's enabled when a video card isn't present and disabled when one is present. i7 4790K vs i7 4770, both include a GPU, but the options in BIOS/UEFI are a bigger difference... OEMs never expose as many.

Basically this.

If you don't know what you're doing, buy liquid cooling kits that include all the necessary parts of the appropriate sizes to secure the system in place.

Once you get comfortable seeing how it all works and fits together then you can move onto advanced topics like one large radiator with tubing looped between all the parts in the system.

You can use EKWB loop planner tool, it will tell you exact amount of fittings you need, and all other parts. Very simple yet effective tool for first timers to help avoid missing parts.

Well, you have 15 items identified, perhaps one of them has latched onto HD operations.

Also you may want to note that 3.0 is out. Still free for scans, although you can't easily opt out of the "trial" of the full real-time version.

I'd pick something with a core CPU rather than a celeron or pentium, if you're going with intel. AMD's APUs are also worth a look as they used to have good graphics performance (I haven't checked in a while)

example
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01J42JPL4/
(acer isn't exactly a great brand I'd recommend, but I'm just giving an example)
then you check the graphics are intel hd graphics 520 and google for tf2 performance
http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/request-team-fortress-2-fps-on-intel-hd-graphics-520.792764/
or check on youtube

you may have to shop around and look at features. (do you need touch? screen size etc)

If you're looking for a basic laptop for work and general usage get an Intel CPU.
If you're looking for a basic "gaming" laptop get an AMD-APU.

>>22449
AMD's APUs are great if you're on a budget, I built my current desktop using A10-7700k and it's run everything I've thrown at it (in 720p with mid-high settings). If you're building a desktop with one it'll be more expensive if you shell out for a discreet graphics card in the future but at least you can game while you saving for one; personally, I spotted an R7-250 for $30 and cross-fired it with my APU for a noticeable improvement over the APU alone. The big thing to note with APUs is RAM speed is crucial, the difference between 1600 and 2133 is a good 15-20fps.

Intel laptops will generally have better CPUs and weaker GPUs than AMD laptops.

However most tasks are being offloaded to GPU now and CPUs reached the "fast enough" stage around the time of Core2. As a result unless you're doing something really CPU intensive like compressing video you're unlikely to notice the weaker CPU, while you will notice the GPU being slower in just about everything else. Even Windows/Linux offloads functions to the GPU.

The problem is $300 is just too low for anything except an Intel Atom or Celeron, with a bottom of the barrel barely functional crippled GPU. There's a lot of Chromebooks down that low, but you probably won't want to live with ChromeOS on hardware that's basically the same (Atom or Celeron).

If you're willing to go refurbished there are some better options, although some of them are rather long in the tooth...

If you need a better understanding of any laptop with minimal information like that one, just punch its model number into Google, someone will list better information on it.

1. Will my Asus Z170 Pro Gaming/Aura mobo boot from an NVMe M.2-PCIe 3.0 SSD? NVMe isn't even referenced anywhere in the manual, so I don't have a good feeling about it.

2. Is it really that likely that I'll have to clock my 3000MHz DDR4 down to auto/2133MHz for it to play nice with NVMe, as I've read is sometimes the case?

3. If booting from an NVMe drive isn't possible, are AHCI M.2-PCIe or AHCI M.2-SATA cards worth the expense, or should I just get a 1.8"/2.5" AHCI SATA SSD?

4. Oh, and Windows 10 does have decent native NVMe drivers now, right?

5. Lastly, is migrating my Win10 install from HDD to SDD just a simple matter of creating a partition table on the SDD and cloning the partition over from the HDD?

Sorry for the fuckload of questions.

This is some OLD shit so most of you probably wont be able to help. I have recently modded my Nintendo Wii with Homebrew, and noticed some people have custom Wii Menus. I looked up some tutorials, and got the .csm file and the channel installed on homebrew. I did everything right, at least I think I did, but when I load MyMenu it gives me a blank screen. Wii mote freezes, so you have to power off the console via unplugging. I have re-done this 3 times, blank screen every time. I have the 4.3u menu version. Please help, my wii menu looks plain and naked compared to others.

I'm not sure how active they still are, but GBATemp.net used to have a ton of information on Wii softmodding, including pretty much anything and everything you'd want to do with Homebrew. I'm showing a lot of posts in the past week, maybe search through their forums for a file someone else has posted or, if that turns up empty, ask a question. They know a hell of a lot more about what you want to do than I do. I just wanted my Wii to load games off USB...

I have to retype this because of an error :(

I have made a Win2K virtual machine to run as a retro PC game host on a LAN... because it's half the size of XP, that's why!

Okay, I created a shared folder called "test share", but when I try to access it from other machines (XP and 7) the folder is visible but I get the "x is not accessible, you might not have permissions etc" error. I have enabled the Guest account in Advanced User Management, and there are no firewalls involved, but I can't seem to recall what else involved here because it's been so fucking long since I last did this! And this is the point where I need /halp/.

Op here... nvm, I found it.

Turns out that I had to add Guest to the permissions list directly, even after enabling it. I seem to recall that it was supposed to do that automatically (which may or may not be a wise idea), but doing this one folder at a time could easily become an annoyance, albeit an annoyance that I'm willing to handle.

Turn off simple file sharing, which makes you use usernames & passwords to connect to shares. So long as the account you login with on each system uses the same name & password you won't have to bother with typing anything. Otherwise you type the name & password and you're in.

7 also needs to be switched back to 40/56-bit encryption vs. 128-bit. You'll also want to disable homegroup but since you have XP hopefully you've already done that.

Also XP and 7 need to be at least Pro, the Home versions can only network with other home versions. 2000 and earlier only had "pro" networking, Home was an abortion created for XP.

Anonymous 17/01/14(Sat)01:07 No. 22433 ID: a870df

There's two sets of permissions, the share permissions, which control who can access the share, and the file permissions, which control who can access the files. If you had added guest to the share permissions you would need to still add guest to the file permissions, otherwise it would be able to connect but not actually read any files.

As far as file permissions go you can enable inheritable permissions on child objects, which means you set the permissions on test share, then set all the items in test share to inheritable, and they all use the same permissions set in one spot (test share).
