    the message I am trying to send has 6 .jpg attachments if that's causing the problem but I need to send those pictures otherwise they can't help me.

    why isn't my second monitor working? I have it set in Windows. Do I need to do it with the ATI catalyst control thing? I have the 6850.

    On which connections are you running your second screen? the 6850 only has one DVI-I slot, one DVI-D, one HDMI and one (mini)displayport. My bet is that you plugged a VGA monitor with a converter in on a DVI-D slot. DVI-I supports both analogue and digital signal, DVI-D does not.

    increase it, 4GHz is kind of low for a 2500k, You should be able to get to 4.5GHz, but you might need to increase voltage.

    If you want to OC your GPU, install MSI Afterburner. And Furmark for testing.

    Also, about temps, 60C for CPU = Hot, only on full load (With Prime95)
    80C for GPU = Hot, should be only when using Furmark, but can go higher.

    HWMonitor for temps.
    The CPU is 41-43 celsius on idle according to ASRock-software, with CPU-ratio jumping between 16.0x - 40.0x

    And what voltage? If I remember right, there are a lot of Voltage-configs in BIOS so I wouldn't know which one to touch and how much more voltage. (My PSU is something along the lines of Corsair Golden ATX 750w Modular)

    Also I had Prime95 but ended up deleting it. But will definitely check out MSI Afterburner, and maybe Furmark.

    As for HWMonitor; GPU appears to be 49celsius on idle, with 1500 RPM fan speed.

    Idle???

    That's horrifying - I really hope those are false temps, I know it's a laptop core but those should be your lower load temps, not idling.

    Check task manager, is something using any cpu?

    Edited:

    Especially with a 25W TDP.

    Have you reassembled your laptop recently?
    There wasn't really anything using my CPU. And no, I haven't reassembled my laptop recently.

    I'm using packet tracer to simulate setting up large networks, but OSPF is giving 1GB/s ethernet ports and 100MB/s ethernet ports the same priority, is this yet another bug in packet tracer or is there something you need to do with high bandwidth links?

    I would like to build a rather inexpensive computer to use in my car (most likely one that will be able to fit under my back seat or in the glovebox / console that could be hooked up to a very small monitor and mounted in my front passenger seat.

    Basically I'd need it to be:

    -Compact (duh)
    -Capable of running Dragon NaturallySpeaking software
    -Capable of playing high res movies
    -Maybe some basic games / ROMs
    -Really damn cheap

    Any ideas for processors and the like? I think that's where I'm most lost.

    Edited:

    Although, I might be pushing my luck asking for a GPU for such a small computer as it'd probably have to be onboard.

    All you need to know. Combine that with a cheap S1155 Pentium or i3 and you should be fine.

    I dunno, there's a LOT of comments about backlight bleeding, if I'm going to spend that much I want it to preform flawlessly.
    No monitor for $250 will perform flawlessly. You'll either get a TN panel or an S-IPS. All LCDs have light bleed, lower end IPS monitors have slightly more, but if you care so much about backlight bleeding then go buy a friggin CRT. No light bleeding, great colors, high resolution and great contrast.

    Are there any good >500w Modular power supplies that are as short as a non-modular?

    I'm considering getting a new case, but apparently psu clearance is an issue with the one I'm looking at.

    I think I might have figured out my Battlefield 3 crashing problem. I installed the 290.53 drivers for my 560 ti and it seemed to have fixed the problem since I was playing for much longer than usual. However, after a long while, it crashed again. I quickly checked the temps on the card and they were fine, like 35 and lower. However, my cpu was at 60. Could this be causing the problem? My 2500k is defaulted to use turbo mode to set it at 3.6ghz, so would turning that off fix it? Or should I get more fans for my case?

    is there tons of banding on this or is it just my monitor?

    Edited:

    crap the jpg compression didn't help
    Even taking Jpg into account I am getting lots of banding here, this particular laptop doesn't seem to have noticeable banding in general.

    What is that?

    Turned off turbo and it still hits 60 degrees, which still looks like the reason it's crashing...

    It's QUBE, I have a horrible ACER monitor and I'm trying to figure out if it's my monitor (I hope so) or just certain games that do that.

    There is, but each step is a single digit difference. Meaning I don't blame the image. Each step is one level of luminance difference. I checked in photoshop.

    I've been having issues with my wireless connectivity lately. At first I just thought being down here in a separate apartment away from the main router meant I would always have shitty internet connection, but the other night I brought my mum's laptop down to format it for her and noticed that she was getting 4-5 bars while I get usually 1-2 bars. The adapter in my PC is a D-Link DWA-556 Xtreme PCIe and it works fairly well; all of the drivers have been updated and the router is also up to date.
    Anyone?

    Because the brightest part of the scene is only like 45. So your eyes adapt to seeing the differences. Every image you see you your screen is going to be at max 8bit depth per pixel.

    2 questions,

    1.) How do I make a time-lapse from images, is there a program that can do this?
    2.) I want to record in HD with FRAPS in BF3, how do I get the best quality and stuff, like settings in Sony Vegas?

    30 fps and full-size, don't need to mess with anything else

    personally, if the video doesn't need any editing I run it through easy h.264 with the Brassemense preset and upload straight to YouTube

    if it needs to be edited, render out of Vegas with the uncompressed template with the correct framerate and resolution settings applied and then run it through easy h.264; you also want to disable resampling (right click the video, Switches > Disable Resample)

    I know brt uses megui

    Use to, I use command line now in a batch script. Also the disable resample shouldn't need to be used if the framerates match. If you happen to not have the FPS match, and disable resample the video might not be as smooth as it could.

    My encoding script:

    Decided not to get it. I've been using Macs for 17 years (since I was 3) and I much rather have a PC laptop.

    I plan on getting a Mac Mini when the specs are good for the price.

    I don't think that's the case at all; from what I've read my D-Link Adapter should do circles around it yet its performance is absolute shit.

    nvm it was the stupid page file again, why must you be used when 6GB of 16GB are being used? ugh,
    so I lowered it to 800mb, and put it on another HDD, hopefully that will make it be used less.

    I'm wondering something about backing up computer data to an external hard drive.
    Say, I start backing up and it cancels in the middle (like I stop it or not enough space) and I restart the backup process. Would it create another thing or start off where I left off last time? It seems to be still taking a really long time..

    Not sure which is which, but my main monitor is on the top one, and the secondary one is a VGA, but I'm using an adapter to DVI. Is there anything I can do?

    I have a huge problem here.

    My GTX 470 is being a fuck and locking up all the time, showing the "Entering Power Save" shit on my monitor, the problems that all 470s have. I've tried every driver release nVidia has with no luck.

    Does anyone have any solutions to this problem?

    Specs:

    EVGA GTX 470

    AMD Athlon II Black Edition

    ASUS M5A87

    8gb Patriot DDR-3 RAM

    Win 7 x64

    Edited:

    Or just reccomend me a card that's as good if not slightly better that's NOT made by nVidia.
