My dc jack seems to be moving inside my computer, just a little? I don't know if it's the shell or the jack becoming loose and if it's the jack I can't saunter it back into place but the shell is like $16 dollars to replace which is annoying
It doesn't affect the charging, charges just fine. But I hate seeing the charger move slightly in place

I got a new laptop the other day (dell inspiron) it has a 920M in it, but for the life of me I cannot get it to use the 920M as the display adapter instead of the intel onboard, there is no option for it in the BIOS. If i disable the integrated graphics from device manager, will that make it use the 920M or just fuck me over? tried to install nvidia drivers to see if that would help, Geforce experience claimed no compatible hardware was found.
User avatar #41620 to #41618 - billybong (4 hours ago) [-]
It should be using the intel card unless there's some 3d rendering to be done.

When all of Nvidia's drivers are installed, it should give you the option when you right click an application to "run with nvidia card". You should get the option when you right click any executable or shortcut to an executable, which means steam games since their shortcuts look like this steam://rungameid/XXXXX might need to be set up in the NV control panel as described next

You can also configure in the nvidia control panel (or whatever they call it now) to automatically run particular applications with the nvidia gpu. You should also be able to set the dedicated gpu as the default whenever you're using power or battery however you want to do it.

You can disable the intel card in bios usually, and the result will be shitty battery life.

My reference is a much older system using a 520M and it doesn't run windows anymore so I'm just going off memory

Hey I got the " The User Profile Service failed the logon" error on my laptop. I fixed it with the first method on this page: support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/947215
What exactly happens to make this error occur, and what did I do, in layman's terms, to my laptop?
User avatar #41621 to #41615 - marmiteistasty (4 hours ago) [-]
probably just installed a program that interfered with the logon process
dont worry too much about it. if it's fixed and it doesnt appear again you're probably fine.
User avatar #41622 to #41621 - vortexrain ONLINE (4 hours ago) [-]
What did the solution I used actually do?
User avatar #41623 to #41622 - marmiteistasty (4 hours ago) [-]
not all that sure, but looks like you just changed the value for something to do with your account in the registry, right?
im too sick to read the entire page but from what i'm reading something prevents windows from accessing the user account at the time (e.g antivirus scan or whatever) so it logs you on with a temp account. ill take a wild guess and you allow it to either like... take the priority for logon/disk usage from the program, or it's a bug in the logon process and that's the hotfix for it. or something.
sorry, dont quote me on any of this, i cant really think straight but your question didnt have an answer and i took a guess. that's what i think happened.

Hey billybong im having kind of a hard time finding informaiton on upgrading with old cpus. Do know if I can take out my i486dx and put in a something better like a i486dx2 or even a pentium? i'm also kinda lookiung for recommendatiuons on sound and video cards. If worse comes to worse I think i'll just keep the case I have and start from scratch.
User avatar #41602 to #41601 - billybong (16 hours ago) [-]
for the CPU's, yes and no. There was a revision between the DX and the DX2 where the power was changed, and theree was an adapter made to convert the voltage so it can be compatible but only some models have that. "Overdrive" models if I remember correctly. You can in theory use up to a 486DX4 Overdrive model, so long as it fits your socket

For Videocards and soundcards, I don't actually know what's good and what's incompatible apart from what I've heard to be good, Voodoo, TNT etc. If I were in your shoes I'd try and find something cheap and using the right port type (ISA I think is what you had, possibly a PCI port too for the videocard) on ebay or something similar. Also from what I know, Either a Voodoo2 or TNT2 would be like putting a GTX980 in a Core2Duo rig. It'd work, but the CPU and FSB would be the limiting factor. But if it's cheap, that's not much of a problem
User avatar #41603 to #41602 - CatHatMan (16 hours ago) [-]
all my slots are isa I have a pentium pc around with pci slots and a hideous micron case so maybe i'll gut it.

My phone (Galaxy note 2) just reset itself and I lost everything. Contacts, pics, music. It's all gone. I'm settin everything back up but can't remember what app I used for the keyboard. It was fully size adjustable (drag it to the size you want) had numbers on it's own row, and had symbols as a press and hold on the letters. If you held down the settings key it brought you to a menu that had emjoi's, languages, layouts, and other things. Anyone know what the app was called? I can't find it again. Or know of another similar?

that sounds a lot like the default keyboard tbh. i dunno, maybe im remembering it wrong.

Not a silly question at all, because my computer will forcibly restart on its own, saying that'll happen every few hours until my computer won't even start.
User avatar #41597 to #41595 - cactaur ONLINE (17 hours ago) [-]
you may want to head over the the microsoft website and contact someone about this if you can.
if not then it might be a good idea to try and reinstall the OS if you can.
Do you have a previous recovery point you can go to?
Take note that I've only started taking IT classes for a little over a month so my advice may not be the best to lean on.
Also Is there a certain error code that pops up?
User avatar #41598 to #41597 - sweetbutteryjesus (17 hours ago) [-]
I've been working on it for a while now, and for some reason an update started as soon as I replaced my email on my microsoft account.

#41604 to #41600 - sniffythebird ONLINE (8 hours ago) [-]
It's ITX, though it's an unusually large ITX case since it has that standard type of ATX layout. Still compact enough, and I don't like how most ITX cases are laid out so the PSU and motherboard are often really cramped.

If I'm lucky I'll get the CPU on tuesday, so hyped for that right now!
User avatar #41607 to #41604 - CatHatMan (8 hours ago) [-]
Darn. I was kinda hoping it was one of the matx cases where they just put the psu in the front or behind the mobo.
The hype when you are waiting for packages is the best. Tomorrow I get a new 64gb micro sd samsung evo for $13.63 wooo and on wensday i get a new phone case because my current case is held together with hot glue in what looks like a bukkae diasaster.

Sniffy can i have your job or money pls. I barely even have enough each money to save up on. I almost barely even have money by the end of each month i cant even save up for a damn rig or anything x_x
#41605 to #41588 - sniffythebird ONLINE (8 hours ago) [-]
Haven't had a job since last december. But it's more like a bunch of savings I've built up over the years. I did a lot of late evening / weekend / holiday shifts, plus I barely ever spent anything on... well, anything for a long time. Until I got into this, of course.

Not sure what else to tell ya, but if you've got a job with varying shifts and stuff, take any extra you can and cover for people who are sick, etc. The little bonuses and extras here and there really start to add up.

I suppose being in Norway gives me an advantage. Everyday stuff like food is really expensive, but our wages are a lot higher too. Electronics and stuff are more affordable to us, ratio wise. Even though something like a Titan X costs the equivalent of 1300 USD here, it's less compared to what an average job pays.
#41611 to #41605 - hueduebue (8 hours ago) [-]
Well considering im mostly a apprentice atm for becoming a warehouse worker then yeah im not making that much outright. I effectively make 6000.dk or so after tax. I lose some 1200.dk to my aunt whom i live with then some 300.dk to my phone bill and anything else i use to support my girlfriend. And thats where i lose a bit because my girlfriend being in america has some damn shitty loans that she had to take to be able to get her job degree. So thats a drain on her and since she works minimum wage she barely makes enough and i've saved her several times from going too far into negative amounts. It suuuucks because if i made like atleast 10.0000.dk i could actually have cash to boot and be able to save for trips to her or a rig/laptop. But hey you gotta be paid just about minimum wage according to the system. I get roughly 1000.dk more then the maximum that SU allows(the thing where you get paid for being in school of any kind) its hard to have to pay rent to my aunt which i understand no problem thats how it is since im a adult and then supporting my girlfriend. She has it worse then me thanks to people being dickheads and having huge requirements for her to even get a job in her field so she has to go for minimum wage because they want people with 2-3 years of experience which almost no fresh out of graduation people do. Maaaan it sucks things are like this.

hey can someone give a build me a good build on PC part picker?
my budget will be about £2,000. And there are a few things that I would possibly like to do. The monitor and OS should be included in the cost

-g-sync is a must
-preferably an ultra wide monitor
- A cpu that does not use DDR4

thanks for the help.
User avatar #41559 to #41556 - sniffythebird ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
Ultrawide G-Sync monitors do exist, but I can't find any on pcpartpicker or amazon uk. I know of two, though:
Acer Predator X34: 34" 3440x1440 75hz IPS curved
Acer Predator Z35: 35" 2560x1080 144hz IPS curved

The snag is, ultrawide G-Sync monitors in general are pretty pricey, and would probably make up at least half of the budget. The question is do you really need ultrawide? It's a lot cheaper for a 16:9 monitor, even a 1440p like the ROG Swift PG278Q (which I personally have). Or if you're ok with 1080p, the AOC G2460PG is only half the price of a Swift (also have this one).
User avatar #41562 to #41559 - serhiy ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
well an alternative that i can have is 2 - 3 separate monitors, but I just wanted a nice wide monitor that would make use of my desk space, without any bars in the middle.
User avatar #41563 to #41562 - sniffythebird ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
Do you have any existing monitors you can throw into the setup or are you starting from scratch?

If you can live with multiple monitors you'll be way cheaper off with a 16:9 G-Sync monitor plus another cheaper 16:9 non G-Sync monitor as a secondary display.

A nice combo would be the AOC G2460PG + BenQ GL2450HM. Or if you're going bigger, the ROG Swift PG278Q (or PG279Q) along with a BenQ GW2765HT.
User avatar #41564 to #41563 - serhiy ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
the two current monitors i have are awful, so they will be thrown out.

But this is just a preliminary probing of what kind of parts i should get, i won't be buying anything until after christmas, so i'll explore some of the alternatives you have mentioned.
User avatar #41566 to #41564 - sniffythebird ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
What about size and resolution of the G-Sync monitor?
User avatar #41567 to #41566 - serhiy ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
as i said, ideally an ultra wide format, but 1440p seems like a good alternative. As for 4k that's basically a no, i use them at work and absolutely hate them.
User avatar #41571 to #41567 - sniffythebird ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
Anyways, here's a rough build I threw together to start off with as a base: uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Staeni/saved/Xhxv6h

Includes every component you need, an OS, and a monitor.
User avatar #41576 to #41571 - serhiy ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
sweet I have that hard drive in my current build, I might set up a RAID array now.

thanks a lot anyways.
User avatar #41570 to #41567 - sniffythebird ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
Consider the ROG Swift PG278Q or PG279Q in that case. The 278 has a TN panel while the 279 is IPS, though a bit slower and more expensive.

What other needs do you have for the PC itself? Gaming? Video editing? Work? What kind of case size do you prefer? Care about aesthetics?
User avatar #41558 to #41556 - sannukas (10/03/2015) [-]
And i don't think g-sync ultrawides are out yet.
User avatar #41560 to #41558 - sniffythebird ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
They're kind of on the verge of coming out from the looks of it. But the cost of them is pretty damn high.
User avatar #41557 to #41556 - sannukas (10/03/2015) [-]
Why not ddr4?
User avatar #41561 to #41557 - serhiy ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
because even though i do have a 2 grand budget, i know that ddrd4 and the 5 - 10% performance improvement in skylake is a waste of money
User avatar #41568 to #41561 - sannukas (10/03/2015) [-]
There is barely any price difference between skylake and haswell, and the price of DDR4 has dropped quite a bit and you can find kits for the same price as ddr3. There is no legit reason not to go with skylake at this point.

So I just bought 2 more sticks of DDR3 4Gb RAM. The same in my computer already. I tried to stick them in and the Computer wont boot it, it will come on, display a few codes on the motherboard LED starting with C, and then shutdown and restart itself. Does anyone know why it would do this?

If your wondering its a Gigabyte G1. Sniper Z97 motherboard with an i5. and the RAM is G skill Ripjaws.

Also, I just realised I mixed them up so I have one old and one new stick of ram in the computer, so It can't be that the new ram is bad.
User avatar #41569 to #41542 - cactaur ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
so it's not giving you a chance to access the BIOS?
User avatar #41579 to #41569 - zomaru (21 hours ago) [-]
Exactly, It doesent boot, just powers up, reads off a few codes, then goes Pepsi and tries again.
#41583 to #41579 - cactaur ONLINE (20 hours ago) [-]
Alright, well, I'm just starting to take a micro computer architecture class (fancy way to say computer technician) so hopefully I can give it a shot and help.

So from what you can tell, the new sticks seem to functioning properly.

It really does sound strange for a computer to simply shut down when having more than two sticks of ram.

Have you tried putting sticks of ram in just the ones having problems?
User avatar #41589 to #41583 - zomaru (18 hours ago) [-]
Alright, I believe I found the problem, I was overlooking 2 switches on the side, both that said one and 2. I'm not entirely sure why they were there because when they were both switched to one and I switched the ram sticks from one channel to the other It still worked. But either way I plugged them all and switched one to 1 and one to 2 so I guess its telling the MoBo to use both channels or some shit. Either way it works now.
User avatar #41590 to #41589 - cactaur ONLINE (18 hours ago) [-]
That's pretty fascinating. I've never heard of a motherboard switch that dictates how many slots of ram should be used.

Either way, I'm glad to hear it got worked out.
User avatar #41591 to #41590 - zomaru (18 hours ago) [-]
Now that only question is what I will use it for. My original plan was to fix my RAM going bad, but since it turned out to be a Memory leak caused by RUST (the game) I don't really need all that Ram.
#41592 to #41591 - cactaur ONLINE (17 hours ago) [-]

User avatar #41543 to #41542 - reginleaf (10/03/2015) [-]
Check the channels. Old on one channel, new on another.
User avatar #41544 to #41543 - zomaru (10/03/2015) [-]
I tried that, and I tried mixing it up ond and now. It only booted when 2 stick of RAM were in. Although honestly I didn't try the currently unused channel by itself, but would both have to have a problem, or could one one of the channel slots having a problem screw everything up? It could have been a buildup of dust, although I doubt it, its possible I guess.
#41531 - sniffythebird ONLINE (10/03/2015) [-]
So this is one of those moments where impatience and frustration kicks in.

I've got every component for my mini ITX LAN/HTPC build in order.... except for the damn CPU, which is a 4690K that I've waited over 2 weeks for; after paying upfront and still not hearing anything.

During the time I also decided I don't want to settle for bringing a crappy 60hz monitor along. Then again I also don't want to drag along the ROG Swift (it's huge) and in turn have the PC struggle with 1440p. So I got the AOC G2460PG. It's a beast. Costs only half as much as the Swift, performs just aswell, albeit 24" 1080p. But this is ideal because (obviously) it's much easier to carry.

So naturally I want to get the most out of that 144hz. The GTX 970 will easily handle that, but since I'll be playing a lot of GTA 5, I decided the 4690K won't cut it. It's by no means a weak CPU, but GTA 5 is really unforgiving on quad cores, especially without hyperthreading. Did some testing* and estimation, and it sure as hell won't cut it if I want to push an average 90+ FPS.

* Disabled hyperthreading and 2 cores on my 5820K, clocked it to 3,9Ghz which is the stock turbo for the 4690K, clocked the RAM down to 1600mhz, disabled SLI and clocked down the 980 slightly. All to roughly "simulate" the performance of a stock 4690K, DDR3-1600, and a GTX 970

Soooo I ordered a 4790K. Yeah, some may call it overkill for gaming. For 60hz maybe, but for 144hz.... I beg to differ. GTA 5 was heavily CPU bound during my tests (and also a friend of mine's tests, who has a 4790K and two 970's). I'd get a decent 70-90 FPS with a solid 90% GPU usage, but as soon as the action kicked in (fighting cops and car chases) it dipped into the 60's and 50's with judder and (on rare occasions) some hitching.

So what started out as my plan to fix up and maybe upgrade my old 2009 desktop turned into "swapping out to some new but cheap hardware" (i3-4130, GTX 950, 8GB DDR3), that turned into something more (i5-4460, GTX 960), and eventually it got up to this.

Budgets aren't my thing, I guess? At least I'll have a kick ass LAN PC soon then...

Then again, overkill isn't a word I like to use.

Because of reasons.

The 144hz is probably a huge cause here. Once I got used to gaming at a solid 100 FPS average, anything below 80 starts to feel juddery and a bit sluggish. Below 70 and it's really noticable.

That side looks pretty good by the way. Good choice of cases and such. But for the same purpose as CPU heavy games like GTA 5, their choice of CPUs are a bit "underkill" IMO.

I had windows 8.1, i updated to windows 10, when i did my laptop wouldnt shut down all the way, just the screen and mouse seemed to shut off, also it wouldnt wake from sleep mode and i tried changing the settings. i went back to 8.1 and it still happens and now i get a boot config error. would reinstalling the os fix it?

This is a common problem, but a very easily solved one for most people. You shouldn't have gone to Win 8.1 before trying to fix it.

Don't upgrade to windows 10 on laptops, do a fresh install.

All upgrading does is gives you driver issues

Why would a laptop be any different to a desktop? I've upgraded several computers both laptops and desktops and haven't had any driver problems (or any problems for that matter) what weren't easily fixed?

More specific driver problems

Laptops typically each have custom drivers, not always updated as fast as they should. desktops are usually relatively generic drivers, with better compatibility

The only thing more generic than most laptop drivers is your reasoning and explanation as to why OP is having problems

Any one here know how to use Mathmatica?
I installed it on a labtop for class but there is no num keys and thus only the center enter key. Is there any way to use the center enter key for the problems or does it have to be the right most enter key?

I'm pretty confident that the 'num lock' was designed to alternate num keys on laptops.
