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.

That's what I get for writing before I've had a few cups of coffee.

Hey 7chan, I wanted to make a memorial script to dedicate something regarding Muhammed Ali's death by making a .vbs script to play a song, but I was thinking on writing it also in multiple languages as well to accomodate it along with it, and not just in English.

Does anyone here know if it's possible to change dialog into different languages as well, if it's supportable? I run a Windows 10 computer, and here's what my script looks like:

Msgbox "May you rest in peace our dear conquestor"

Msgbox "RIP Muhammed Ali 1942-2016"

Msgbox "Your deeds will always be remembered..."

Msgbox "Rest in peace guardian angel"

Dim oPlayer
Set oPlayer = CreateObject("WMPlayer.OCX")

I had some viral problems due to a bunch of malware lading itself when going to a site (strangely not a porn site - the supposedly "legit" site of some iso mounting software)
Anyway I ended up dealing with that through a system restore and now UAC seems to pop up every ime I start just about anything. - from CCleaner to mu-torrent. (oneo of my drives also will not let me write a torrent to it either but first things first.
- Any way to reduce the UAC settings (which are on the lowest before turning the ting off) or whitelist certain files?
- did I suddenly lose admin for this account or what?

WIN 7 by the way.

Malware researcher here.

Always reformat. System restore is infectable. Malware authors always assume you'll try that. Microsoft themselves recommend just reformatting.

Hopefully, this'll be a lesson: Always use an adblocker + noscript.

Anonymous 16/06/11(Sat)09:15 No. 22115 ID: 43e02a

You're still infected. System restore won't remove a malware infection. Heck, most of the time, system restore won't even work. System restore exists so that some checkbox on a Microsoft marketing checklist gets checked, nothing more.

Back up your data, wipe the HD, then reinstall. It's the only way to be sure.

Adblockers aren't for blocking ads, they're for blocking malware disguised as ads. Never run without one.

Yes they are technically right, but I seriously doubt you are going to follow their advice. You can adjust UAC settings through control panel > change user account control settings. But, as you recently recovered from malware you probably should be keeping a closer eye on whats going on in your system for a while. Also give process explorer from sysinternals a try to see whats going on inside.

Or Nuke

Or start using linux

boost to router signal - distance Anonymous 16/01/20(Wed)05:07 No. 22024 ID: 34334b [Reply]

Boosting router signal.
I got a new router and it has an internal antenna and it seems to have much weaker signal strength/ range than the previous model I used that is about 7 years older.
It's a D-LINK DIR-820L.
it has no place outside for an external antenna but I was wondering if I could boot the signal
with something like a USB WIFI Wireless Adaptor network card or something like this?

Any suggestions?

Oh. That's what you meant. No, you can't plug a USB NIC into the router and have the router use the NIC. You could use the NIC with your desktop or laptop to get better reception there.

I feel your pain about unused purchases. Last month I ordered a piece of equipment and had it shipped to another site for a coworker to use since he said he desperately needed it. I asked someone to go into his office today since he was out and we needed something in there, and the shipping box was sitting in there unopened. Well, we could use it, so I had it brought over. What do I find? Straight out of the box one of the power adapters is broken. Something we could have had replaced for free if he'd have opened the box when it came in or shortly thereafter, not six weeks later.

A reflector, so long as it's tuned for the RF ranges in question, could certainly work, although it will also result in a completely dead spot behind the reflector.

By way of comparison, with an N66, I can join from over 100ft away. Keep in mind an entire apartment building is sitting between those two points. As in, I'm in the corner of an apartment building, there's a dividing section (walkway, grass, etc.) between buildings, and on the other side of the other side of that building I can join my network. And there's wireless networks in that building, plus all around me. This is the power of good engineering though, as others have pointed out, properly choosing the correct channel(s) for your network is key given your surrounding. Only by walking around with a WiFi surveyor can you get a decent sense of how the WiFi networks look, though you won't see non-WiFi intrusions (security cameras, baby monitors, cordless phones, everything that uses 5Ghz & 2.4Ghz that doesn't use the WiFi standard to connect).

Look for open-source firmware.

I use tomato router on all my legacy linksys routers, you can boost the signal to the hardware max, something like 300% the out of box setting. If your hardware isn't supported by the tomato project, find another firmware dev, or choose another router that is supported by a firmware you like

Realtek SoC means little third party support. That's something to look into before buying a unit, not after, since there's plenty of SoCs that lack support.

MKV's with subs to AVI or Mp4 Anonymous 16/06/06(Mon)04:40 No. 22105 ID: 2214da [Reply]

Hey I have a bunch of MKV's I want to convert so I can burn em on blu rays and use in my player or play on USB on my TV an have run into a coupel of problems. MKV's that won't convert in Format Factory or AVS Video Converter.
(I usually use FF for non-subbed stuff.)
I get the following error on FF Error 0x00000001
and on AVS either "file format error " or not mkv file. (whihc it is)
any suggestions?

Well I gave that a shot but don't have subtitles on the finished product
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Also, tried to convert an MKV file that FormatFactory and AVS couldn't read (but anything else will play it) and just got an audio track and no video. Any ideas?

Anonymous 16/06/07(Tue)11:14 No. 22110 ID: 43e02a

I normally convert MKVs to M4Vs so I can use them pretty much everywhere on every device, unlike MKVs. I've included subtitles too, though MP4 only allows a single subtitle track so if you want multiples you'll have to general a subtitle file somehow for the 2nd and later subs. I never cared that much though which is why I only know a single subtitle works.

Noctua's low noise adapter on my AF120s reduce the speed correctly when plugged into a 3pin header but they usually need to be hand started. I don't have different fans to use, and the only other header is for the cpu fan. I guess it's not awfully important to have it in since the only thing inside is a 2600k, but there aren't any other fans inside.
Wat do halp

Anonymous 16/06/01(Wed)17:25 No. 22102 ID: 87065d

Low noise adapters are basically a wire with a resistor in series.

Buy a basic extender, splice in a variable resistor and you can adjust the speed-voltage to what you want. Alternatively buy a pci-fan controller for £3.00 and save yourself the effort. Slot it in the pci bracket, plug in the power and fan, presto. My case came with a basic controller (low/med/high) on low one of my fans doesn't start so I leave it at medium unless I desire the airflow or silence.

Hello. I have an idea I want to try out. I need multiple VM's for my work. So I thought I could a packed mini pc like Gigabyte Brix Pro to host the VM's, on, for example, Qubes, and using gigabit connection to my laptop utilize the laptop as something like a remote desktop.
Direct gigabit connection should in theory be more than enough for VNC. Is there any better solution to achieve such functionality?

Better Idea: A freaking server!
set up a server at home as a host for your vms. remote in or even live boot from work.
