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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

Anonymous 15/07/20(Mon)00:34 No. 21883 ID: 38acda

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...

Anonymous 15/07/20(Mon)10:56 No. 21888 ID: 5e1030

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").

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)

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.

So I'm starting to buy stuff to build my first computer, and I'm realizing I know less than zero about this. My question is how do you tell if a graphics card is good? I looked online and all I've learned is GDDR is better than DDR by like x4. Is there an easy way to tell if card X will run game Y? The only goals I really have are Bioshock Infinite on max and Shadow of Mordor at all.

Right, let me explain. The PSU was originally 135$, on sale for 100$, with a 20% percent off coupon dropping it to 80, and a 30$ mail in rebate, making a 135$ PSU all of 50$. When I picked it up my build was still in the 640w range, so I'm future proofing for five years from now when I upgrade.

The deal with the 100$ case? It has everything I'm looking for, plenty of space to maneuver, and if I do it right I'll never have to buy another case in my life.

Why 2Tb instead of 1Tb? Because it was literally a five dollar difference, and why not? I wanted two, I'm getting two.

The wireless is mandatory, because I'll be damned if I'm running a cord to the one working phone line in my house, plus it's only 30$, I make that in less than two hours at work.

As for the keyboakeyboard? It's a placeholder, of course I'm getting a better one than that.

TLDR: Go fuck yourself.

So upon further review, I've learned you were right, and I had picked a wired network instead of a wireless card. I was needlessly aggressive when people were offering honest criticism. I apologize for acting like an asshat.

DDR-2400 in DDR-2133 mobo Anonymous 15/07/17(Fri)19:50 No. 21870 ID: 04306e [Reply]

File 143715541098.jpg - (117.52KB , 640x448 , ddr.jpg )

Straight to the point:
Are there any drawbacks to using DDR3-2400 memory in a motherboard that only supports 1333/1600/1866/2133?

The potential is there to overclock the memory and for some peculiar reason I'm finding 2400 cheaper on several sites, my gut instinct says go for it but a 2nd opinion is always welcome.

It's not the OS I'm having a problem with, it's Otshot. I wiped all the viruses off my computer (including Otshot) but ever since then, It pops up with a message: Unable To Load Skin.
I click OK
Then it reads: Would You Like to load to Outlook?
I click no and it goes away.
This happens on every startup on my computer.

Backup Data, format, reinstall OS, restore data. It's the only way to be sure.

Otherwise you can just keep installing and running scans with different AV programs in the hope that one of them will detect whatever is still installed and catch it. The days of being able to depend upon a single AV program for detection and cleanup are long, long gone.

Anonymous 14/06/07(Sat)01:52 No. 21189 ID: e9ee54

One trick is to turn the system off and let it sit in the corner for a month or two. Then turn it back on but don't connect it to a network. Use a second system to download current definitions for all the various scanners you have installed, copy them over using a flash drive, then runs scans.

With every day that passes you raise the chance of the AV company having a sample submitted to them, and since the infected system is off the network it can't auto-update to a newer version of malware(s).

Its not perfect by any means, especially if you've been downloading executables off the internet from torrent sites or the like, but without formatting it's probably your best shot.

Anonymous 15/07/17(Fri)08:27 No. 21867 ID: 4308ad

click start menu, in search box type in msconfig, go to the startup tab, uncheck Otshot whatever the fuck that is.
