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.

1000 watt psu problem. Clueless PC dude 15/08/27(Thu)23:33 No. 21922 ID: 38b817 [Reply]

I have a Corsair HX1000W psu and I just got today GIGABYTE GA-H55-UD3H motherboard. I noticed my mobo needs a p4 mb connector which didn't come with my psu wire case. Does that mean it won't power my mobo because my psu is too powerful or is there a wire that I have to buy to make both parts work together?

Just checked your mobo, looks like it has a 24 pin ATX so you might want to leave that on there.

The 4-pin power connector you're looking for is on another connector (it's 8 pins and splits into 2).

It's amazing what ducking the part comes up with:

Yeah, hopefully you didn't do what >>21923 said to do, otherwise you may very well end up frying your board since you're basically plugging the wrong thing into plug.

>>21926 is exactly correct, your PSU included the correct connector.

BTW, this picture is of connectors included with your exact supply. Try checking the wires you think are PCIe power. One of them isn't.

You can split it up into two bits if you need to, though most of the time you can just plug it in with the extra 4 hanging off the side.

Clueless PC dude 15/08/29(Sat)12:14 No. 21929 ID: 38b817

Well found the connector but still not able to turn the power on I hope I didn't fry it appreciate the help/knowledge going to send it in to a PC repair shop.

The right button on my old mouse was starting to get a bit borked so replaced it... only to have the cursor dance around like a hoochie girl.
I checked the drivers and also found out that on windows 7 had this problem (and a solution)

but then it started again.
-any idea?
Using win 7 and a generic wired mouse
I replaced it and the problem

Have you tried it on a plain white sheet of paper? Not all surfaces are treated equally by optical mice.

Asus tablet type password to decrypt storage Kay 15/08/24(Mon)04:17 No. 21919 ID: d28cb6 [Reply]

I need help with my Asus tablet
One day I used it and it worked fine then couple days later I turned it on and it went to a screen that says type password to decrypt storage but we never put any passwords on it. I tried hard reset and it don't respond to holding down the buttons it just boots back to the type password to decrypt storage screen. Can someone please help?

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.

Anonymous 15/08/20(Thu)23:15 No. 21918 ID: d2eca6

I mean, if push comes to shove just go buy the shittiest tracfone possible and set up an account with that. Depends on how much it's worth to you I guess.

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.

Halp me! I cant reach settings to downgrade to previous version. Does anyone know how to do it without working windows menu?

Anonymous 15/08/04(Tue)16:20 No. 21909 ID: c95b1e

There's a sub-menu in the update settings that allows you to rollback to a prior version. Not on 10 at the moment but I'll be able post screen-shots in a few hours.

Could you try elaborate on "without working windows menu?". I'm confused as to what you mean, have you tried Ctrl+Alt+Del and ending explorer.exe then restarting it?

Its ok now, i found out how to fix this error. And no, i could not use my laptop with this error cause nothing works.

Anonymous 15/08/05(Wed)05:56 No. 21913 ID: 10d6c2

At home 10 won't get past a certain point so I have to reset it in the middle of the upgrade, at which point it rolls me back to 7. I went so far as to create USB install media and run the upgrade off that. Instead of hanging it BSODs with clock watchdog timeout at the same progress point. Says it's going to restart automagically, doesn't, so I reset it... and it rolls back to 7.

I just wonder if Microsoft wrote WiFi Sense or if the NSA wrote it for them. Transmit everyone's WiFi network's physical location, name, & password to a US server? Sounds like a wet dream for US law enforcement.

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.

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.

Anonymous 15/08/04(Tue)04:49 No. 21907 ID: 5d3666

Well it worked..
Plugged the USB into the router USB port and connected to the router and changed settings.
No. 21901

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.

Anonymous 15/08/05(Wed)05:49 No. 21912 ID: 10d6c2

Sounds like a problem with either your modem and/or router. Probably the latter. I'd replace the latter with a router that supports an open source firmware like Tomato, OpenWRT, or DD-WRT. If the problem keeps happening then you know the modem is a piece of shit.

Roll20 has ruined firefox Anonymous 15/07/22(Wed)23:15 No. 21890 ID: a13399 [Reply]

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?

What other browse could I use? I don't sympathize with chrome.

Its rather easy to use, dosn't have much fuctionalities for games with unusual mechanics but I'm sure you won't e playing that.

Anonymous 15/07/24(Fri)23:18 No. 21897 ID: 10d6c2

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.

Anonymous 15/07/26(Sun)01:32 No. 21899 ID: a13399

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.
