[QUOTE=Daemon;35699092]So i had been anticipating fibre optic in our area for over 3 years and it finally comes... jumped from 550kbps to 4.2 - 2.3Mbps but my download speed has not changed. Has my ISP put a cap on my download speed?[/QUOTE] Do a speedtest, if it's changed from before then it's probably the download source.
Definately had changed from before on speedtest, i tried a Steam download to be sure and it still caps me at 550kb despite suggesting i had more.
could be a router/modem limitation [editline]24th April 2012[/editline] also check your steam download settings to ensure your bandwidth is correct and the server is close
I would tell you to check your ISP on dslreports.com, but it seems to be down for the moment
[QUOTE=Protocol7;35699338]could be a router/modem limitation[/QUOTE] Mmm... good suggestion. It is eight years old so i'll definately need to look into that. Ty [QUOTE=shill le 2nd;35699372]I would tell you to check your ISP on dslreports.com, but it seems to be down for the moment[/QUOTE] Check later, thanks.

So I have a TrendNet TEW-652BRP v2.2r and it keeps on disconnecting my wireless devices when the devices are download stuff, such as streaming videos off YouTube, it's not my devices, but it's the router. Buffer overflow? I dunno but is there anything I can do to prevent it/stop it from happening or it;s just the routers fault here.
What's the best PSU I can buy under £60 that can easily power a 560 Ti? It's been weeks now and I still haven't on a brand. The ModXStream Pro 600W was the closest I got to buying something, but I've heard that the cables are a little short.
My question is about temperatures. Again... ASUS PC Probe says that the motherboard temperature is 32C but Speccy says they're at 45C. Which one should I trust? If the Speccy temperature is the real one, is my motherboard at a safe temp? I have an ASUS P6T SE and temps are measured during idle. Nothing is overclocked, I have the standard Intel CPU fan and case fans are at maximum speed (case is an Antec Nine Hundred).

So I'm gonna be modding an old Antec 300 I have, and I was wondering if there was a way to take the mobo-tray out so I don't have to reach into the case to cut out holes.
Probably a question that has been asked before, but I'm too lazy to search it. I've noticed that the price of SSD's has gone down (considerably I believe) just in the past few months. Last time I looked was around christmas and I'm pretty sure there's been a massive price drop as the 128GB Crucial M4 is now $140 as opposed to somewhere in the $200's if I recall correctly. Anyways, I would really like one to just have Photoshop, some games, and other apps on as well as Windows 7. Would I be stupid to buy one soon or is there some trend that says that these prices will drop noticably more in the next 2 or 3 months?
What would be the best UPS in the ~$100 range?

You get an amazing performance boost. I honestly would buy one, before the something like the Taiwan floods will bump up the prices, and then the market keeping it's prices high.
What can I say so a friend can wait 5-6 days for the new intel CPU? He is crazy for a new computer and he can't wait those day. Is there anything I can say to make him wait?
"Better performance"
[QUOTE=Ehmmett;35715915]"Better performance"[/QUOTE] Tried that but we stoppet talk last night so we are on a hold or what to say.
I have a few questions about server hardware: If you run a multi-purpose server (game/web/file/git/VoIP/VPN/random crazy antics/answering machine for home telephone (the fun you can do with a modem)) seeing limited usage, but being online 24-7 and plan on upgrading, [i]should[/i] you opt for the (apparently) more reliable and durable Xeon/Opteron CPUs or go for the ordinary desktop CPUs? I don't want the CPU to die after a year, but do I need to worry about this? This also extends to other hardware, like mobo/memory(expensive server memory or ordinary desktop memory)/PSU(someone told me I need a high quality PSU and recommended the "core" series of XFX) and such. Basically, can I build a server like a desktop without a GPU or do I need to make special considerations?
If the CPU dies after a year, it's a bad chip. Xeon would be more robust with ECC memory and usually the boards are more reliable, but you wouldn't see a difference in the CPU itself.
I have a pretty serious problem: Everytime after 1-3 restart of computer, EVERY openGL apps doesn't work no matter what I do, but if I reinstall the latest nVidia drivers, then it works, but after 1-3 restarts it doesn't work again. Minecraft crashlog says:[code] OpenGL: null version null, null java.lang.IllegalStateException: glGetString(GL_VERSION) returned null - possibly caused by missing current context.[/code] Also Blender crashes and other openGL based apps too, but Direct3D based apps work fine, what the hell is happening with drivers/openGL? specs: Intel Celeron D 330 2,66 GHZ two 1 GB Ram inno3D Geforce 6600 256 MB Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
I have a problem with installing Windows 7 on my SSD, it keeps stopping the install with the error: "Windows could not set the offline locale information". Any ideas on how to fix this?
Is it worth to upgrade from an AMD X6 1090T to an Intel i5-2500K? (Just for gaming.)
Not really.
I'm thinking about making a Kijiji post about my computer repair services, though first I'm looking at a way to keep track of the computers that come through here. Some sort of database that I could configure to take down the customer's name, phone number, computer's model, pictures, part invoices, some comments, ect. I would prefer if it was web based (I have a server that I could host it on if needed), so I could access it from my phone.

[QUOTE=Shadaez;35729024]just make a google doc with a form [editline]27th April 2012[/editline] oh my I have a title[/QUOTE] That might work, though I would prefer something that I could attach files to. And if I recall, it outputs everything into a spreadsheet, which won't really look nice with a lot of text (I take fairly detailed notes). It could work if I can't find another option, thanks.
Do you guys know when the AMD Trinity APUs are coming out? Heard it was around June, but I'm not sure.
i want to get gold or a title before the boostar ends but i have no money oh well
don't get gold, it's shit
Looking for a new MoBo to go with a 3770K, RAM (8-12GB), and a new PSU. Budget 500€ (flexible), including the 3770K. Planning to buy them on Monday, when they start selling Ivy Bridge. Any suggestions?
