  1. The graphics card shows mild artifacts during post but that's it. I switched my graphics card, and now windows is working WITH the drivers. It seems it is some really strange failure of the graphics card. The card that was not working right was a 8800gtx, I swapped it with a g card from my other machine (8800GT) and now it works. The other machine runs ubuntu. I put the failing 8800gtx in the ubuntu machine from which i got the 8800gt, and ubuntu hangs in the login screen. WEIRD. Time to get a new g card. Sucks, somehow I loose a psu and a g card, hopefully my mobo is still intact.
  2. I installed via dev man. Same symptoms. Did not work.
  3. I replaced the psu in my machine after the old one died. Windows wouldn't load (only safe mode) with the new psu. So I used driver sweeper to clear my motherboard and display drives, and then windows started to load and function. I installed the chipset drivers and restarted, and windows functioned correctly. Then I installed the nvidia display drivers, and restarted. Windows would start to load (the logo would show) but where the login screen should show up, nothing shows up and eventually the pc restarts. I login to safemode again, and remove the display drivers, and then windows starts working again. Also during post (only during post) there is some weird pixel pattern over the whole screen. As if the graphics card is failing. But everywhere else (including bios, and other text screen there is no pattern. So basically windows only loads with out display drivers. I have tried reinstalling MANY times, with new and old drivers. How do I get windows working WITH display drivers?
  4. Habu on a cloth Steel QcK+. I would think everyone would notice this problem who had a Habu. It happens on white a4 paper too, but maybe, MAYBE, not to that extent. MS has some solutions I am going to try, like uninstalling old mouse software, I just hope it doesn't make my media keyboard useless.
  5. The brown line is me trying to trace the path I made with a shape/line tool. I don't have any nerve/muscle problems or degeneration. It is my mouse, mouse pad, or software.
  6. I wipe it twice a week with a moist cloth and a micro fiber towel. After that its super clean.
  7. pc+360 controller. What do you think about that?
  8. I tried Firefly, (started watching the pilot I think) but it just didn't grab me.
  9. Aliens in America House Freaks and Geeks Arrested Development Undeclared South Park Family Guy Scrubs Mythbusters The Riches Top Gear The Office (both) Lost 4400 WAS good, but season 4 (and 3) I lost interest Discovery Chanel anything Dirty Jobs (love it) Heroes Prison Break Drawn Together Weeds Numb3rs (not really following it) Dexter (I liked the plot) Reno 911 (It is just hilarious) The Green Wing (This is good in so many aspects)
  10. I got rid of that egg bezel thing, and just use the heat sink and fan. Much smaller and lower, now my g card actually fits.
  11. I just use silent fans, also my antec fans come with 3 fan speed switches. The cpu fan is software controlled with smartguardian as is the chipset fan. It think your ninehundred comes with fans that have the same 3 stage switch as my antec fans.
  12. I did a test run with some deodorant, works great, a little too volatile, but now I know my lantern fluid was the problem. Time to find zippo fuel.
  13. My zippo is burning with a partial flame, and its mostly blue or non-visible. Is there some wick adjustments, or is it the fuel I am using? I am looking for a more complete flame, and one that puts out more visible light so I might have a chance at using as a candle to see when needed. Also the lantern fluid I used seems to have a high ignition temp, so high that the sparks aren't lighting the fluid. Could be something else though, since I think the sparks are pretty hot.
  14. I added a woofer (with a low pass, or what ever cuts of high freq, passive filter). Yes there is more bass, but there is also crossfade. The main woofer is connected to both channels, and each of the tubes runs in series to one of the channels going to the main woofer.
  15. Use a solution of laundry detergent and warm water to clean the loose keys in a plastic bag. Worked too well for me. Then hit the crevasses of the board with a tooth brush and damp cloth. Finnish off with a micro fiber cloth. Dry the keys and reassemble.
  16. HABU mouse. Its a piece of poop. And this is my second one. And keyboard, one of the best (IMO of course). MS wireless natural. None better.
  17. WOAH, parts express, that site has tons of info, I am going to spend some time reading up over there, thanks. I have tons of documentation on speakers, but they wander off talking about concepts I can not grasp.
  18. I do, but sometimes the sound stage of speakers are more appealing, also the freedom of walking around and doing other things with music in the background is nice.
  19. I listen to everything, but once place where these speakers are really bad is rock, with electric guitars and chords. I will try to electronically tame the highs. Like that parallel resistor. I am running them like normal speakers to this receiver. And this is what I ravaged for parts. The receiver is not grounded but the computer case is (and everything connected to it). I run the headphone out to RCA and plug that to the receiver. Right now I am listening to a Cat Stevens song (acoustic+vocals) and it sound alright. The drivers are rated at 10w (peak I would assume), nothing crazy.
  20. Mack27, I skimmed through your link, all I could make out was that there was a load (resistor) in parallel with the speaker driver. (EDIT, i went back and read more, thats some thinking going on there. I might give it a try, how it increases the resistance at higher freq, why? I don't know. Effectively tuning down the highs. But then again I have an EQ.) thecnodanvan, I used only the drivers from the speakers. The foam used is EPP foam 3mm think or so. I would like to add that the foam on the other end of the pipe is acting like a passive radiator.
