Odd behaviour HDD

24 April 2017 - 04:50 AM

So every so often my HDD goes to 100% out of nowhere (usually when i watch a video) and stays there for a minute or 2 before backing down and resuming as usual.
Afterwards i get an error saying "server execution failed" - but i am not connected to the internet most of the time (laptop, only go to library for internet stuff like emails and shit) and i do not get this error all the time (it comes and goes about once a month? if even that). Also, when i access a file (like playing a video) the HDD "clicks" before attempting to play it, but it does not do that after it has done that initially (so all the things i do after it, it does not "click") i just assuming this has to do with accessing the data on the disk, so i am not that worried about this, but i thought i'd give it a mention.
 
I crystal-disk check the disk, everything seems healthy, but i am still a bit worried. Also did a disk check in windows itself.
Do i have a setting enabled that does this or is this a problem in windows 10 itself (anniversary update installed).
 
I backed up some important files, just in case the HDD is failing (although it only is about a year old).
 
So am i doing something wrong here, are my settings not right, or is my HDD failing on me already?
I have added a crystaldisk info screenshot if anything peculiar can be found there.
 
I thought i'd ask here for some answers.

Monitor overclocking, I need answers ;A;

03 March 2017 - 04:15 AM

Since Google does not help me finding my answers, I come here for some trustworthy advise.

 

I have a laptop at the moment (G751JY) with a pretty good 75Hz Gsync monitor on it.

Now, I tried overclocking it, and came out at a solid 100Hz.

 

Obviously my question that follows is, is it "safe" to leave it at these numbers?

Tried a few tests and it stays stable for the time that i tested it (used a webpage as well (http://www.testufo.c...test=framerates) and it stays "Valid" for all the time I have it open.

 

Main concern is, does the lifespan of the monitor degrade if i use it at 100Hz, and if so, any estimates of how much?

 

I know these are pretty much guess work questions, but if someone has experience in overclocking monitors and lifespan, I would gladly read it.


R.I.P. Satoru Iwata ;A;

Japanese video game maker Nintendo has said its chief executive Satoru Iwata has died of cancer at the age of 55.

 

When I read this news I looked at it with some disbelieve.

I grew up (and probably many of you too) with Nintendo consoles and the fact that the master mind behind it all has passed away at such a young age, is quite a shock.

 

Hopefully Nintendo will come through these sad times.

Adblock doesnt work on windows 8.1 chrome

06 March 2015 - 03:07 AM

Hey,

 

My mom has a windows 8.1 laptop, but is bugged by the annoying ads she gets on youtube, or any site really.

I installed adblock (and adblock plus, and even pro) but it does not work at all.

No ads are being blocked, no matter what site she is visiting.

 

Is adblock broken in windows 8.1, or is there something i am missing?

 

Thanks in advance :)

 

EDIT:

 

 

Ok, i found the problem, she had an extension installed from unisales, this was even rooted in the HDD.

She doesn't know how she got it, but i got rid of it and now we are ad-free thanks to a working adblock :P
