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 don't know if it's still the case, but back when I was taught electronics they covered house wiring as part of the curriculum. I'm going to guess they don't do it anymore, because everyone younger seems shocked that a geek like me knows house wiring...

I have a Huawei Glory running Android 4.0 that won't turn on. I have Tracfone prepaid for the carrier and it won't load past the Tracfone logo.

What happened was I tried calling someone by opening my contacts and a popup saying "android something something" couldn't load, so I restarted my phone. Now it won't load Android at all.

What can I do to fix this?

Have you tried removing the battery for 5 minutes then restarting it in safe mode?

(Insert the battery then press and hold both the volume up button and power button simultaneously until the blue screen of life appears)

Only partially related.

What's the actual UI like? Recently cracked my Experia's screen and was looking at getting a Huawei to replace it but I've heard/read nothing but bad things about the Emotion UI and how it's trying to be too much like an iPhone (IMO crap).

So recently I put together a parts list for a small gaming computer that I could use as a HTPC. It even has a DisplayPort and I've been looking at daisy chaining monitors with that. It doesn't seem too difficult, but heres my question...

If I were to buy some GameCube/Playstation controllers for PC, could multiple people play multiple emulators on multiple screens from one computer? Currently I have to select the emulator with my mouse for controller input to be detected on ePSXe/Dolphin/Project64/VisualBoy/DeSmuME. I get how to setup a computer that could handle this, but how would this work on the software side?

So I just tried routing my controller input through a virtual joystick on PPJoy, then into the emulators. It still requires that I click on the emulator window for input to work though, so I'm not sure how you're getting it... Maybe something to do with being on XP, idk?

I found that pic on google, I'm trying to avoid doing something like that... I figure if 2 DisplayPorts can run 8 1920x1080 HD screens, then that means 8 GameCube/Playstation/Gameboy/N64/SNES/etc.. emulators, or minecraft... And I feel like a 2TB WD Black drive could hold all those systems entire games collection, and host 8 EMUs at once...

Anonymous 14/07/23(Wed)05:45 No. 21291 ID: 7038af

Ok so another update. I found an option in Dolphin under GCPad configuration for background input and its exactly what I wanted. Now I just need to find it on all other emulators x(

It's doable, but nontrivial, as nontrivial as doing multiseat is on Linux; therein lies the madness.

You need to set up the multiseat most likely in the config files of your display manager. This was on sysvinit machine, systemd may do it differently.

You also need to write a ServerLayout in xorg.conf, where you at least assign core keyboard and pointer and one screen to each layout. You may assign other input devices, such as gaming controllers, to the Layout as well.

I haven't done any separation of audio, because its not relevant here, but one has to probably configure PulseAudio for that. Nor have I set so that for one USB port, only one "seat" would receive the input automatically, I think that's udev's job.

ahoy, /halp/ers!

I am downsizing from my gaming tower to a laptop. Everything is set for me to sell the tower and fully switch to my laptop except! I've got all kinds of data on those 3.5" HDDs (see pic). What I would like to do is DiY an enclosure for the drives so they may sit upon my physical desktop and I may plug into them as needed. I'd like to make it so the enclosure runs the power for all of them and leaves me USB (or eSATA if possible) wires to plug in at will. I began searching for adapters but quickly found myself lost in the multitude of choices. I don't want to order adapters and find myself with only a data connection and forced to double down with the amount of wiring.

What kind of layout do you believe would work best here? Would "eSATA + USB Combo to Female 7 Pin eSATA Power Cable Black 1M" be something along the lines of what I'm looking for here?
Thank you for your time, I very much appreciate your advice.

ok I think the winner is the Thermaltake dual docking bay. Both drives go over the same cable, but if I'm smart about what I put on each one, I think that's manageable.

Anonymous 14/07/19(Sat)05:34 No. 21260 ID: e9ee54

̱Hopefully you're not talking about the USB3 dual drive Thermaltake docking station. Because I know that one's complete and utter shit. Fucking thing goes offline at the drop of a hat, often while you're in the middle of reading or writing to a drive.

By comparison their USB2 products seem perfectly stable, though I have no experience with their dual drive USB2 model.

I guess it's back to the Kingwin. which isn't bad at all, as I only just now looked at the prick of that Thermaltake. I can get two Kingwins if I want and still be cheaper than the apparently crap dual bay

Ok, so I had Windows XP on one of my HDDs. Decided to install a W7 on a different drive.

However, when I put it first in the boot order, it tells me "Missing NTLDR". When I boot the XP HDD first though, it boots just fine and I get a boot menu.

Now, I've googled and tried a lot, but not all of the solutions. Some of them just don't work or aren't possible.

What would you recommend I do?

when i try to do so, it says my system is offline

Anonymous 14/07/10(Thu)14:42 No. 21235 ID: 268dcf

Have you had it working before?

I suggest going PC->E2000->Shield to get it up and running before you add in extra devices to gum up the works.

"Since launch last July, the streaming of PC games to SHIELD has only been possible via a GeForce GTX-powered desktop PC. This latest update enables PC games to be streamed from notebooks with GeForce GTX 800M, GTX 700M, and select GTX 600M GPUs, with the same great set of features enjoyed by desktop gamers." -geforce.com -April 2014

Now, just to check, you do have a GTX in your computer...

Anonymous 14/07/12(Sat)09:18 No. 21247 ID: e9ee54

It's probably not working because, based on your diagram, you're double-NATing your traffic. It undergoes a NAT conversion in the E2000, then undergoes a second NAT conversion in the airport. In addition the PC can open a firewall hole in the E2000 but can't be reached from the internet because it also needs to open holes in the airport (which it doesn't know about because uPNP/NAT-PMP doesn't work across routers).

If it works on the E2000 (as >>21235 suggests) but doesn't work anywhere else, this is your problem. Redesign your network the way it's supposed to be designed and, like magic, everything will work the way it's supposed to.

I have an older (17) version of firefox but this is bullshit.
I can't connect to https://fuuka.warosu.org/
as it pulls up the "untrusted connection" shit.
It originally wasn't even giving me the option at the "I understand the risks" but I can't actually add an exemption even then.
I deleted the cert.db already with no luck.
Any suggestions?

That site's certificate points to https://warosu.org/ , which has a valid certificate and is usable.

Op, back again. I sent it in for service, HP replaced the hard drive and heat sink, but the fan is still loud. I'm thinking now I want to under-clock it, but I don't know how to do this. I looked at the BIOS, but I didn't see an option that I could change that would do that.

Anonymous 14/07/08(Tue)03:03 No. 21230 ID: 10d6c2

You're looking at a prebuilt system. You can't underclock or overclock it.

Try, with the system off, spraying some compressed air into the exhaust port. Backwards airflow usually dislodges more dust than the normal direction.

However if this is one of those single-fan HP laptops, there's not much you can do besides replace the CPU and GPU heatsinks plus the fan that drives both. At that point the fan will be as quiet as it possibly can be, which is still very loud.

ATI Catalyst Control Driver removal help. Anonymous 14/07/04(Fri)04:12 No. 21222 ID: 04fe4e [Reply]

I realized I was running old drivers and downloaded new ones. I removed the Catalyst Control using the ole "add remove programs". It was the only AMD /ATI thing I found and rebooted.
- Only to find myself wit the same drivers and no way to remove them.
Is there an ATI removal tool or any other method of getting rid of my old drivers so I can get the new ones?

Anonymous 14/07/04(Fri)06:03 No. 21223 ID: 10d6c2

You could always install new drivers and then uninstall them.

The official instructions are here:

For anything more specific we'll need to know what version of Windows you're using. As you can tell from that doc, the process is quite a bit different between Windows XP and Windows 8.

It sounds like your CCC installation got corrupted through one means or another and as a result you only had a partial listing in Add/Remove Programs.

If you're going to try installing new drivers on top of your screwed up install, just be sure you've dug down to the actual card you're running and grabbed the drivers for it. AMD periodically discontinues support for old cards, so you could end up grabbing the installer for a newer card that won't work with yours (it SHOULD say this and fail to install, but best to be careful).
