    Oh I fucked up my laptop real bad.
    I installed libusbK drivers for a bluetooth dongle to get DS3 controller working. Everything was fine.
    Then, after restarting, suddenly no USB devices work. So I go into system restore to revert to a point I specifically created before fiddling with the drivers.
    After restarting windows throws out a message "system restore point was deleted/damaged etc. Do you want to undo the restore?". I click yes.
    The undo this time works and now I'm always booted into some temporary user that has no settings saved on each login, and the usb drivers still don't work.

    Edited:

    Went into devmgmt and it seems that USB hub devices are disabled. Regained my mouse control.

    It's user experience is still unmatched even by phones today and you can literally do anything with it since it uses a GNU/Linux based distribution, on top of that it does most tasks faster than current generation phones since everything is incredibly optimized and runs all the code close to the metal

    The screen also just sinks in with the bezel with their combination of Nokia AMOLED + Cleartouch and the design is just perfect

    Here's a fucking real brain teaser for everyone in cipwicket.

    A friend recently got a new build, built it up perfectly, cables are all in the right place, PSU is more than enough.

    MSi Z170-A Pro (non gaming), i5 6600k, GTX970.

    Fresh install of Windows 7, everything goes well, monitor is now connected to the 970. Boot screen and etc shows up fine. Get to Windows = Blank screen.

    Reboot and use the integrated graphics = everything is fine.

    Obviously I told him, "might be windows fucking up", so I told him to jump ahead and try Windows 10 (since he does have a new generation of CPUs and chipset, might've been compatibility issues). He promptly agrees, does a fresh install of Windows 10 on his machine and the exact same shit happened. On boot he gets he seems to get the "Press F11 to boot menu, Del for Setup" but regardless if he lets it post, presses F11 or Del, screen goes back to "No Signal" as long as he's using the 970.

    Fans spin and lights light up (and keep working throughout), PSU should be enough.

    Borked GPU or Motherboard? I really have no fucking clue. He's also already updated the board's firmware and updated... I seriously do not know.

    I know this is more photography territory but since when did we ever care about anything in this thread

    Yesterday I went and developed some 60mm film (medium-format film) at the local photography school, cause they have all the chemicals and such and I'm friends with some of the teachers.

    Anyways, with the film developed, the next step would be to scan it.
    So I get home and dust off the ol' flatbed scanner, cause i remember it having a film scanning mode.

    Oh.. it only accepts up to 35mm film.. Well that complicates things.
    So, at this point i ~COULD~ scan every single picture several times and stitch the parts together in post (every single time), or I could try to throw together some improvised scanning solution.

    I went with the latter, and this is what I came up with:


    It's my Canon 6D (with a macro bellow and a 1950's Carl Zeiss lens) connected via cable to a flash with a portable softbox. The film is kept in place with some random shit found through the house vv

    It worked surprisingly well:


    (open in new tab for high res)

    For 60mm HP5+ ISO 400 film, a resolution of 2560 x 2560 seems to be enough. Any more and you just end up with bigger grains, and no more detail.

    Try switching the GPU to another PCI lane.

    I am really inconsistent.

    I've gotten headaches from a single glass of wine with a good meal, but I also distinctly recall one New Years' Eve where I had a third of a bottle of... homemade diluted/flavoured Polish neutral grain spirit and felt absolutely nothing in the morning.

    So more news about my 2600k. At first it seemed like a bit of a downgrade, but i can overclock this SOB a huge amount with the H110I Gtx. Like it's almost mind boggling how fast i can get it. I stopped at 5.5 GHz and 1.6 Vcore, but i could certainly pull more if i had better cooling. (Like chilled watercooling). I didn't want to push it too hard though, especially for a 24/7 OC. i dropped it down to 1.46Vcore and have it at 4.9 currently.


    Sandybridge really is something. I can get essentially the same preformance as a 4570k oc'd at 4.3ghz out of it with the 4.8 oc.

    He's tried both PCI lanes. But if the GPU does show a screen pre-post through that GPU's dvi out, it shouldn't be completely dead I think? I just told him to try plugging in just an hdmi to a TV or whatever, without any DVI in the card.

    At this point I'm running out of ideas on WHAT to troubleshoot.

    Edit - Hdmi shows nothing, not even the "Press F11 for boot, or DEL for Bios" thing. But if he takes out both power cables going into the GPU, "Please feed me power so I work!". However, if powered, mobo diagnostic says nothing in either pci lanes and and it won't output anything post boot.

    That's what happens when it's all hype, idea guys and visual designers making a product.
    You need functionality, and not in the 'perfect' sense, but in the allround 'good enough' sense while still leaving average users as a whole with a satisfying feeling, which isn't happening with the specific focus the N9 had.

    Or have a massive cult-like consumer base that'd believe everything your glorious CEO says, but they're not Apple.

    I honestly don't understand how Samsung have the fanbase that they do, their mobile devices are utter turds.
    I guess its down to their marketing positioning themselves as the "Apple alternative"
