  1. Logitech momo steering wheel dropping out all the time? I pulled my old very old Logitech Red momo steering wheel and pedals out the other day which I have not used for over 10 or more years. But I have a problem they work fine then all of a sudden drop out nothing works and the only way to get them going again is to pull the USB plug out and put it back in again. Things I have tried already I reinstalled the drivers also found an old driver same thing happens. Maybe it’s just too old. Have used different USB spots USB 2.0 USB 3.0 The wheel will stop even before I start a game sometimes or last for 20mins or more in-game so I think it’s not a software problem it's just like it loses its USB connection. any idea? Running on windows 7 64 bit and have downloaded the 64-bit drivers from Logitech Shame because when its working it’s great.

    USB dropping out with wheel

    Looks like it was the power supply maybe. I swapped out the power supply and played yesterday for 5hrs so far all good. Thanks for all the help.

    USB dropping out with wheel

    I do have a laptop I will give that a go.
  4. Hi I need a computer genius my PC is driving me crazy. Every time I start an online game the line drops out at the start of the game it can go on for a while trying to get into the game is a nightmare most of the time I give up but if I stick with it I end up in the game and its fine. It does not matter which game it can be any. For me its Arma3 or FPV drone sims. We can watch YouTube, stream on Netflix’s or just surf the net without any problems but as soon as a game loads the modem lights go out and it drops out. Telstra is saying everything is fine on their end and I have done all the fixes I found online googling the problem like updating the latest firmware for the modem and changes on windows settings but nothing has worked. Nothing has changed with my PC in years this just started a few weeks back out of the blue. I run windows 7 and the PC is fine as far as I know it’s not that old and still works fine other than this. Thanks for any help.

    Dropping out

    Thanks guys its my modem as the one they suppied died 2 yrs ago and I did not want to wait for them to replace it so just went out and purchased my own "netgear unit". The thing that gets me is it only drops out when I load a game you would think if its a modem it would be happing all the time. We can stream or do anything online for as long as we want weeks , months and no problems but as soon as I load a game it drops out. Looks like I will have to try a $200 gamble on the modem and just hope its that. thx

    Arma 3 Crashing "STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION"

    Will I tried everything still just kept on crashing. But I think its fixed now as it has not crash for days after the Arma 3 update. It would crash every game before so lets hope its fixed. Thanks for all your help anyway guys always a great team on here. thx Rat
  7. Hi guys I am at a loss why Arma 3 keeps crashing it will crash in any game mode at any time. The exit code it comes up with is 0xC0000374 - STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION I have had no luck finding answers online and the only problem I can find with my PC is the C: drive is almost full. But Arma 3 is loaded on its own SSD drive with plenty of room. I have uninstalled the game and all its mods, reinstalled them and it did nothing still crashing. I have saved a troubleshooting report for bohemia but am having problems uploading them on their website. Anybody got any idea ? Could a STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION have anything to do with Ram ? thanks for any help. Will

    Arma 3 Crashing "STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION"

    Thanks guys I was thinking it could be a memory/ram problem but all the test I have run so far the ram shows up fine. I run the tests that Dasa linked (Thanks) and it came up fine. I will run the Memtest boot disk tonight.

    Arma 3 Crashing "STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION"

  11. Finally got into this game after watching Franky play it on You-tube for years. Just wish I could get my mic to work.
  12. Hi guys I built my machine a few years back and cannot remember much about it. I have 2x WD 2T HDD running in Raid 1. One of them is starting to play up and become very noisy. These HDD do not run my OS (win7) thats on my SDD drive. I was wondering is it as easy as just pulling out the one playing up and popping a new one in there and my machine will work out the rest? If not anybody know what I need to do to replace it ? Any help would be very helpful thanks
  13. Hi guys I just got two new screens as in title. I was doing some photo editing in PS and they had a noticeable WB difference to each other. The standard settings do not seem to fix the problems. I never did install the CD that came with the screens is there anything on that that can help? Got any idea what I can do to fix this problem. Thanks for any help.

    Starting all over again how?

    Cheers thanks for that I will get onto that tomorrow.
  15. Hi just put a new pc together all went great until I tried setting my two storage HDD into raid 1. Looks like I needed to change the bio’s & matrix storage manager before loading windows 7. Because doing it after the PC would not boot anymore. I am running the OS windows 7 on my SSD and have two 2T HDD’s for programs & storage and I wanted to run them in raid 1. I would like to wipe windows out again and start all over this time before loading windows I will adjust the bio’s and storage manager. What’s the best way of doing this ? I was going to go into my computer and just format the C: drive would that work ? The only other way I could think of was to use the windows CD and format the drive but I am not sure I can get back into the bio’s before the window installation starts again. Any help would be great. thanks

    Starting all over again how?

    Need some advice on this please if possible. I just loaded office 2010 on my SSD not all of it just outlook, word & onenote. The question is I keep most of my emails for references so it can become a big file. Should of I installed it on the HDD ? Or can I move the part of outlook that will hold all my emails to the HDD ? Thanks for any help.

    Starting all over again how?

    That was it "assign a drive letter" I was sure I did that but I was half asleep. I still back up to an external HP back up HDD being manly for work I even back up the back up. But in my last build I had two HDD fail Seagate than a Samsung and it was just a pain reinstalling and pulling files from the back up. So this time I have the O/S on the SSD and every thing else on the 2x 2T in Raid 1. Thanks for the help guys. I just cannot wait to install a game on the rig. One more Question in the last build I needed to set up SLI in the Bio's but I cannot find it this time the nvidia program seem to do it but still not sure if I need to do anything in the bio's for SLI. Thanks again.

    Starting all over again how?

    Ok all done that woked fine. The only problem I have now is the two drives in raid 1 do not show up in my computer? But they show up fine in disk management. I allocated them as you do but when I checked in my computer they are not coming up. Is this normal for two HDD in raid 1. I would not have thought so. I going to sleep. I will look at it tomorrow. thanks

    Starting all over again how?

    That sounds like the way to do it thanks. I will let you know how I go. I am only running home/prem 7. I did read that the software raid was not as reliable as the hardware way not that it matters for me.

    New build + lost on the SSD ?

    Thanks for those links.Back to only using two screens for work and one for games I like the idea of BF3 @ 125.6 FPS in 1920 x 1200 mode. Ordered two 24”Dell Ultra sharps they have a deal going $279ea 2x 2T HDD in raid 1 it is then. cheers Thanks KopyKat Yes I want the extra insurance and less down time if a HDD fails as I have had a few fail in the past. I still back up to an external drive as well. Raid 1 is properly going a little over board but you never know. Thanks for everybody’s help I now have all the gear and just need to find the time to put it all together. This is only my second build the last one being three years ago so sorry in advance if I need more info over the next few weeks. I have found a few good YouTube vids on building a system so let’s hope it all goes together easy. I do have one question when running two screens do I have one screen connected to each vid/card ? Christmas has come early Edit: I got all my gear from Mwave they have been pretty good. I had a scratch in the case window they gave me a new case with no drama.
  24. Hi It’s been sometime between builds and wow there is so much new gear out now I am a little lost. Any help would be great. I have not been gaming for a long time manly because my system was too old and it turned into a work PC. This new PC will mainly be for work using MS: office, excel word & stuff like that but I was a big BF fan so I am thinking why not make it a work & BF3 PC and claim it all on tax. Screens will be 2x 24" LEDs but I will only use the one screen when gaming. Case: CM Trooper Stryker (Got the case yesterday) CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K CPU cooler: Corsair H80 Cooling Hydro Series High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler Mainboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LX Ram: Corsair 16GB(2x 8GB) Vengeance Dual Channel Memory Kit - PC3-12800 / DDR3-1600MHz - CL 10 - Unbuffered (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10) HDD: 2x OCZ Agility 4 2.5" 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD) - SATA III - Indilinx Everest 2 Controller (AGT4-25SAT3-128G) in raid 1 2x 2TB WB Graphic card: 2x ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II TOP Video Card - GDDR5 2GB 256-bit - GPU Clocks:1058MHz PSU: Corsair AX-850 Professional Series Gold 850W Power Supply - ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 - Fully Modular - 80+ Gold Certified - SLI & CrossFire Ready - 120mm Cooling Fan (CMPSU-850AXAU) CD/Drive: Blue ray combo Samsung SH-B1223A Soundcard: ASUS Xonar DG PCI 5.1 Windows: 7 64bit Q: I was going to run it in Raid 1. So if I ever had a disk fail it would not hold my work up and the mirrored disk would keep me going (never used Raid 1) would this work ? Q:Can you even set up the SSD's in raid 1 ? Q: With the SSD drives would I only install windows 7 & BF3 on them and everything else on the 2T WD HDD? Q: Do you think the AX-850 is over kill or should I go with the AX650 ? (it will be runing 2x GTX 670's Q: Is the ram right ? Never knew there was so many different types of ram I cannot find a 3rd gen compatable only 2nd gen Q: Can I just push the off button on one of the screen when playing BF3 or is it not that simple? Thanks for any input.
