I heard the Hazro monitors use the same ones as the Catleaps. Just with better quality control.
[QUOTE=Brt5470;37319164]I heard the Hazro monitors use the same ones as the Catleaps. Just with better quality control.[/QUOTE] BRT, just the man I wanted to speak with, I basically have upto £700 to spend on a monitor, what are your suggestions having (I assume) done your research on this?
Do you really wanna go with 30" the 27's are slightly smaller pixel pitch. You could get maybe two of them for that price.
[QUOTE=Brt5470;37319274]Do you really wanna go with 30" the 27's are slightly smaller pixel pitch. You could get maybe two of them for that price.[/QUOTE] Doesn't really bother me, the hazro just seemed to be great value for money, I only want one monitor though, leaning towards Dell U2711 because it's Dell, there's honestly not a lot of choice up here, there's Dell and HP then there's the 'others'. Hazro is really tempting though, as good as a monitor can be honestly but b-grade worries me.
[QUOTE=I be da best;37294461]I just bought BF3 a few days ago (Late I know, but I still play BC2), and my i7 920 has been hitting temps of 90 degrees. I don't think it should be that hot. Should I be worried, and what can I do? Specs [img]http://i.imgur.com/gwVXw.png[/img]+ [url=http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=3738]500w CoolerMaster PSU[/url][/QUOTE] Update for anyone who cares. Went out and bought myself some arctic silver, applied, also discovered that one of the clips was not in at all on my heatsink, and that my cheap thermal paste had clumped up, making it run even hotter. Now playing 64 player BF3 at 65c.

I've got the exact same problem as described here: [url]http://discuss.extremetech.com/forums/thread/1004437004.aspx[/url] Except that it isn't only happening with one folder, it does it with my downloads folder, one of my memory sticks and a couple of other random folders. I also notice that if I navigate to my downloads folder via "computer -> C:\Users\User\downloads" I don't have that problem, however when I navigate to that folder any another way I do have that problem. I've tried messing around with folder templates, resetting folder views and ticking "Remember each folder's view settings".
The two little knubs that hold my case off the ground came off in the back, so now the bottom vent is blocked by the floor. Does this matter or is it trivial?

I'm just not sure wether it'll have enough power to supply to both the cards.

I got a second hand laptop 2 days ago, a toshiba m70 and anytime I close the lid it goes into hibernation mode. How do I stop it from doing it?
[QUOTE=absolalone111;37326984]I got a second hand laptop 2 days ago, a toshiba m70 and anytime I close the lid it goes into hibernation mode. How do I stop it from doing it?[/QUOTE] Open Power Options by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Power Options. On the Select a power plan page, click Choose what closing the lid does. On the Define power buttons and turn on password protection page, next to When I close the lid, choose what you want your mobile PC to do, both for when it is running on battery and when it is plugged in.
I need help choosing a new wireless router because I don't really know anything about networking. The router needs to support 2-3 wired connections and a bunch of wireless devices (laptops, iPods, etc). Would anyone recommend any of these: [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833704137[/url] [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833127215[/url] Should I go with a completely different one? (budget is < $100) I'm not really sure what to look for in a router so any help is much appreciated.
My Geforce GTX 560 started shitting out on me for no reason all of a sudden. It will crash and recover usually but it's gotten so bad it happens at least once every 5 minutes making any thought of gaming hopeless. Does anyone know a fix or perhaps a better card on newegg that I can shell out some cash for(last resort)?
RMA it. What are some really good and quiet 120mm or 140 mm fans with red LED's?
[QUOTE=Zerokateo;37336614]RMA it. What are some really good and quiet 120mm or 140 mm fans with red LED's?[/QUOTE] [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835129059[/url] Assuming it's good by the five star ratings.
Those look pretty nice and the reviews look pretty positive. Thanks, only reason why I want LED's is because I want my computer to match the look of my keyboard and mouse.
I keep getting display driver crashes while gaming, but it's only in certain games, Diablo III being the worst of the bunch at around every 30 seconds. The two questions I have is could it still be the card even if it's perfectly fine in some games, and would reverting to any older driver versions fix it? Card is a Radeon HD 7770.

How do I go about this, as I know you're supposed to get rid of the current drivers before downloading an older version. Where do they automatically download to? [img]https://dl.dropbox.com/u/59389727/drivers.PNG[/img] I'm assuming these folders have something to do with the drivers, but I have no idea where they came from. Delete?

I recommend using a program like driver sweeper to rid the system of drivers.
I'm looiking for a way to connect my computer to an old CRT TV, so that I can get an authentic experience when using emulators. Any ideas on converting the dvi/hdmi/vga signal to composite video or scart? I don't care about the video quality, I'm kind of trying to make it look shitty. My graphics card is an ATI HD5770
