    Solved RTM Wallpapers?

    Can anyone still running Windows 8/8.1 navigate to C:/Windows/Web and or C:/Windows/Web/Wallpaper and zip/rar these files and send them to me? I no longer have access to Windows 8 and would like the wallpapers from the actual OS. I can easily google this but it often includes non RTM and or...

    BSOD playing HearthStone, error 0x000000ea

    Thanks for the reply. He wants to wait and see if it BSOD's one last time. Then I will uninstall the software and install the latest.

    BSOD playing HearthStone, error 0x000000ea

    I was playing hearthstone when all of a sudden a crash occurred two times in a row several minutes apart. My friend helped me get the required information. I am fairly sure the game didn't cause this. Someone elsewhere suggested to update the GPU drivers but they are already at the latest...

    Recent Places always empty

    I just noticed my Recent Places history is always empty now. Even when I right click the File Explorer it acts as if I just used CCleaner. What is causing this. And yes I made sure "Store recently opened programs" and "Store and display recently opened items in Jump Lists" are both on. Any...

    Question about JPEG and PNG properties 8.1

    So I was going to dive into tagging my images on my HDD so I can find what I what when I want and specifically what I want. But there is a problem. I can't tag PNG images. In fact PNG images differ in the properties panel: JPEG Properties: PNG Propertie: What is this crap? Is there...

    FX 8150 80+ (C) and shutting down a lot

    My buddy has opted to get me a cooler. He is getting me the CoolerMaster Hyper N520. That thing looks like a beast so it should keep me very cool.

    FX 8150 80+ (C) and shutting down a lot

    I have two exhaust fans. The standard 120/140 on the back and a 200MM on the top plus a 200MM intake on the front.

    FX 8150 80+ (C) and shutting down a lot

    My case was designed for easy heatsink installation. The panel on the right side where all the cables are hidden has 4 holes drilled for the plate. In fact that's where the plate for my current HS is. No need to take the MB off.

    FX 8150 80+ (C) and shutting down a lot

    Under the bios there is a "CPU Smart Fan" Option and it has these settings " Disabled, Auto, 3-Pin, 4-Pin" It's currently disabled. My buddy said he's going to get me a new cooler. The Evo 212 I think it was.

    FX 8150 80+ (C) and shutting down a lot

    Today I did everything possible without taking out the CPU itself. I took off the heatsink cleaned it up and the processor. I cleaned out the dust as much as possible on the heatsink and re-applied the paste. I took out my GPU and blew it out. I blew out the PSU fans and PC fans. I am noticing...

    FX 8150 80+ (C) and shutting down a lot

    The reason you can't see the image is because this site takes full sized images and shrinks them and doesn't hyperlink them. Right click them to get the URL for full image. And yes I know I am going to need a new Heatsink but it was just so sudden that this started to happen.

    FX 8150 80+ (C) and shutting down a lot

    A week or so ago I noticed a very weird whining noise coming from my PC. The only way I can describe it is perhaps a stock horror movie girl scream but not as intense and it wound up if you know what I mean. It wasn't ear piercing, actually far from it but it was noticeable. I couldn't figure...

    Solved PCSX2 Won't Open (0xc000007b)

    I have found my issue. Just for shits and giggles I decided to download the vcredist_x86.exe that was included as a download on the site and hit "repair" when I opened it and all seems well.

    Solved PCSX2 Won't Open (0xc000007b)

    Already did which is why I came here. Also does this look reliable or trustable? This is the AIO thing Reddd.
