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.

I do believe you are correct.

I've moderately fucked myself as I just installed a new MB on a win7 system and now it won't boot. I have tried switching the SATA to both IDE And RAID with no luck.

I want to keep this instal of the OS if possible and know there is a way to do it with a windows rescue disk /USB as well as the MB drivers on USB but am not exactly sure how to go about it.

Aside, couldn't one see if a mac address,
device, is trying to connect when it should
not be at any given time?

There are tools out there that will impersonate the router, de-authenticate the system with the legitimate MAC address (so its no longer connecting to the ap/router because the ap/router just told it to go fuck off), then switch to that device's MAC address and connect to the actual router in it's place. After that point the system with the legitimate MAC address will no longer be able to connect, because the other device has an active session and only one device on the network can have the same MAC address at the same time.

MAC filtering is worthless. If you want real security implement 802.1x, with MAC filtering you're just creating more work for yourself with nothing to show for it.

Well it worked..
Plugged the USB into the router USB port and connected to the router and changed settings.

Good to know but I'm staying clear of Win 10 for now. I don't like the fact that it can turn on security features (as well as a lot of other stuff)
No. 21906
I've kept the MAC filtering but also have instituted a password.
I do have a bit of oddness as sometimes my comp (which has a wired connection) completely drops contact. I need to reboot bot the modem and router (in that order) to get connected again.

Been given a 'new' PC and I want to give it a fresh start but there's a hitch.

I want to reinstall the OS (Vista Home Premium...) but I've got no CD (Product Key's not an issue), where's the best place to get an ISO for free without having rootkits coming out of every port?

Already checked the HD and there's no recovery partition so there's no luck there.

Any ideas on how to create a facebook and activate without using your phone number? I've been looking into trying to setup a free VoIP service to handle it like someone in this video I found did. No luck yet, Idk if facebook just blocks all SIP numbers or whatever (I don't really have much indepth knowledge about phone systems) He was using "Express Talk" maybe I've just set it up wrong.

Reason being for all of this, I just want to make an account to run a page without having to be profiled through things like instant checkmate and other things that comb through connections or what not. I understand this might be a futile situation, but if anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate it.

So I dunno if you people know about Roll20 but my issue is that since I started to use the site FF has started to glitch out in a terrible manner blacking out chucks of the screen, blacking out completly, freezing on a single screen and not loading larger images.
Today it has become almost unbearable.

Wat do?

Purely as a test it doesn't matter WHAT browser you use, whether Chrome, Safari, Opera, IE, PaleMoon, whatever.

The object isn't to switch to it, just figure out if it's purely a FF phenomenon or something infesting your entire system. The latter would be far more malware-ey than just a bugged FF profile.

Just used IE with Roll20 and some pages that always go glitchy plus FF running at the same time. IE ran smoothly all the time.

I'm going to update FF and if the problem persists I'll make a new profile.

Well I'm having a terrible week and it culminated with my PC randomly shutting off while I was playing an MMO. I tried to turn it back on and nothing. I swapped out the power cable and tried again and it started for a second then I heard sparks and it was back down, and I could smell smoke afterwards. I have an old PSU laying around and I tried to install that and it didn't, still nothing. I built my PC about 3 years ago and I think most of my parts are still under warranty, but I'm not even sure what to claim warranty on as I'm not sure which part is not working. I just know it isn't the power supply. Possibly the motherboard? I'm not even sure how to troubleshoot, as its not like I have a spare processor lying around to swap out with, or a new motherboard.

I'm honestly just considering piecing the parts out to sell and build a totally new PC. I guess I would find out which part doesn't work when I have an angry person yelling at me. I've been considering a new PC for awhile. I suppose I can always use some of the parts from my old build, such as the HDDs. I really want a case under 6" but it seems the only cases that qualify are server cases. Any suggestions? Has to have an external 5.25" bay and 2 expansion slots for a video card.

It's interesting to note that at the same time my PC went down, our router/modem went down as well. That was because the wall plugin was only half way in, which I think may have caused my problems...

Well I don't see it on my BIOS so what an I to do? Not only that but all the DIMMs were at 100% with my GTX560, before I had to remove everything from my PC to debug (read OP and following). Unless installing a new GPU changed XMP somehow?

And still, would a bad/default XMP result in the memory being undervoltage and underutilized. If no, I want to fix that before I worry about something like XMP...

When I was in my computer I noticed it could've used a clean so I'm probably going to do that tomorrow... I doubt it'll help but hey, who knows...

Heres an update: I did some research and I think that EOCP is the same as XMP?

In that case I've tried setting to both DDR1600 and Profile1 and neither changed the voltage, the speed, or the capacity so I don't think that is it...

What I suspect is that your problems weren't just limited to the GPU, whatever nuked your GPU also nuked other components. Now that you replaced the GPU the other component failures are exposing themselves.

My last AMD system had a setting under memory called "Auto tweak DIMMs" or something similar, but that was a DDR2 system. It worked similar though, let me jump from 800 (fastest stock DDR2 setting) to 1066 ("overclocked").

What's public opinion on mechanicals? Looking at getting my first one, wanted to find a balance between gaming and everyday typing, but still wanted that nostalgic clackety-clack. I'm leaning towards a brown, but I was eyeing the reds and blues also.

We're all aware that Windows 10 is being released for free by the end of next month, and I'm honestly a little excited about it, too.

I just want to ask a question to those of you who are deciding to upgrade to it: will you be upgrading on day one, or will you wait? Why?

In dire need of help. Tried asking /r/, but phone was being too slow.
Using manjaro Linux. Last night I did a long wipe of a flash drive (not one containing the operating system. Just one that I was formatting for storage use as a normal pen drive). Later in the night, after that had been closed out, I tried to switch to lxdm. After running a command I do not recall, I rebooted to see it boot into lxdm so I could start using a wider variety of window managers, but alas, I got this. After as much fiddling as I could muster, I was left helpless. Stuck With 3g data, no live USB, a broken disk drive, no extra computer, and no wired internet, I came to this page as a last-ditch effort. Please help. (manjaro 64 bit installed on a lenovo ideapad y510-p. Was using gdm but tried to switch to lxdm and fecked self)

There's an entry in fstab for your flash drive, that much I can tell you. Try flagging it as "nofail" and see if you can boot it up then.

Well OP, I was right.

The dependency of the OS was on your flash drive. Because it was dependent on it and you ran a command on it, you happened to mess up the OS as it was dependent on it.

Watch what you do on that drive if you're dependent on it.
