    Vintage Gaming PC

    My voodoo machine back then was a AMD 700 mhz, with 256MB ram, and a 10GB disk - it was a voodoo 3 however, so i might be giving you some older specs. I had windows 98

    Macro tool

    Hi, Recently we have had some new software applications rolled out at work to 'enhance' our job (In fact it takes twice as long), but what i was wondering was, is there a way i can write a macro to automate some of the paper work we need to generate? I need to get information from 3 systems, We use AMDOC 7.5 as our main system, and the other systems, are written with a c++ library known as wxWidgets, and the other is a custom tool written in VB.2007. How would i go about making a macro that will bring a system application to the front, run a few key presses, or automate a handful of mouse clicks, and then copy that data to clipboard memory?

    Speccy is almost the same as cpu-z in terms of the info it spits out CPU-Z is a tool for its own use, as well as Speccy (Dont flame war over what they do)
  6. I got a nice shinny ITX silverstone SG06 with a 300W power supply, of course 300W is not enough to power the machine, so i invested in a Neo 450. Because the neo is an ATX power supply its to large to fit in the case. I was wondering if i was able to rip the guts from the generic PSU, and stick the Neo 450 into its sell, would i run into any issues? The PC Board on the PSU looks like it will fit (I have taken measurements already) - however if the PC Board is to large - if i shave a few MM from each edge and don't cut into the lanes, i'm not going to cause any issues? My father is a trained sparkey (Built radios for a fair while when he was younger) - so i'm getting him to help me solder all the power leads back in place after the transplant.

    Modding ITX power supply

My computer will boot into windows, and then stall, or BSOD The 2nd thing is, the PC wont POST 9 out of 10 boots - i suspected that it would have been the PSU Do i have a DOA Mobo? -i3 530 -Zotac H55 wifi ITX mobo -Seagate 1.0TB HDD -9800GT -4GB GeIL GV34GB1333C9DC Maybe 'Non ECC Unbuffered RAM' is causing issues?

    $96 for HP Lovecraft?

    Hi, I brought At the Mountains of Madness and Other Novels [Hardcover] for 96 bucks. I have no idea if it was worth the price seeing it was printed in 1985 and is a first edition, its sitting in my work bag, and i am using the dust jacket as a book mark... http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51Wn...aTL._SS500_.jpg I suspect that this is a rare book i am destroying, as i brought it from the Kinokuniya book shop at town hall in Sydney?

    System freezes when playing video

    Do they have a firmware fix? My dad had heaps of trouble with his tv, updated the firmware, and now its working as expected.

    System freezes when playing video

    Did you defrag your movies? If your movie is on sectors that live at other ends of the disk, the seek time will rip the audio, and sound apart. I normally experience this issue with 1024HD video's on my older PC. Grab defragler, and defrag the files that are skipping.

    I used a liteon in my desktop for 5 years and never had any trouble
  19. Hi, My desktop is sitting on the dining room table at the moment, and is taking up to much room - i am looking at an upgrade soon, and am looking at a Shuttle SX58J3 Barebone XPC (I have the video card) - http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_p...oducts_id=14460 Is this worth it over a good quality windows 7 laptop (I like the Toshiba ones)? Also, i am a bit confused over what the barebones is, will it have CPU, and RAM? I got plenty of storage on my desktop i can plugin...

    The SG05 has a big ass fan on the front, i don't like that style of case - i would be prepared to pay a bit more for something i would be proud to have sitting on the desk.

    I have to install the drivers from the mobo website first, and then patch with the realtek drivers otherwise no sound.
