room mates tv not working by EmmaNickleshaw.pm4 - Fri, 16 Mar 2018 21:30:42 EST ID:kRCVkc1/ No.121697 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Long story short, I set up my router to control the bandwidth on my room mates tv. He was using a cheap tv with built in Amazon, Netflix Hulu, youtube, spotify streaming apps. So he stopped watching netflix because the video was coming out in a horribly low resolution. A few days later and his tv won't turn on anymore. Did I do something to cause this?

They'll unlock it if you produce a death certificate. Or you can just ask the previous owner if you didn't steal it. That's usually how it goes.

There is also an other problem, this iphone i got was bought by my sister with the previous owner who deleted his icloud account and then she gave the phone to her ex boyfriend who added his own account,

but my sister's ex-boyfriend is an asshole he return the phone to her when they broke up but he is refusing to unlock the phone because he is an asshole,

so i guess that this phone is fucked, thank you for you answer.

Google has launched an ad-blocker for its Chrome web browser that is designed to prevent "annoying" and "intrusive" ads being shown to users.
Google announced the move to curtail full-page and auto-playing video ads, among others, last year.
The choice of which ads to block will be determined by the Coalition for Better Ads (CBA) - made up of companies including Google and Facebook.
Sites will have 30 days to remove disruptive ads before blocking begins.
A survey of 40,000 US and European web users found that the most intrusive ads were full-page ads that hide the content of a web page and flashing animated ads, according to a blog by Chris Bentzel at Google.

"Chrome will automatically block ads on sites that fail the Better Ads Standards," wrote Bentzel.
"When at least one network request has been blocked, Chrome will show the user a message indicating that ad blocking has occurred as well as an option to disable this setting....."
The ad industry was generally accepting of the move, said Emily Tan, an editor at Campaign magazine.
"At first, people were worried that it would be implementing ad-blocking across the board," she told the BBC.
"Now everyone has a clearer picture of what it does."

Block party
Sites that have already altered the ads they show after being warned by Google include the LA Times and the Chicago Tribune.
However, users who simply want to block as many ads as possible may seek other solutions.

ABP is not a rival firm. Google is not getting into the ad blocking business. Google is slowly twisting the arms of advertisers specifically to undermine the ad blocking business. Also, ABP is garbage.

I have been using this link added to my hosts file to block most ads: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt I have also added; JavaScript Popup Blocker, No AutoPlay & Stop Autoplay for Youtube to my chrome type browsers. Seems to take out about 90% of the ads.

Consider Google is US based. The (mostly right) policans and unwitting, haha 'followers,' made it possible so peoples information can be sold to this highest biddder. So basically no privacy. I doubt google has ever scraped peoples emails.

If it is an onboard driver most likely it would recognize and install. If a separate card
get the drivers from the website.

But you cand got to windows update and select option updates. It would be the first few options, install what correlates to your card, monitor etc. Forget the rest.
(97%? really no issues if you remove the drivers.

I assume this is a plugin card.

If it is a plugin card, do msconfig under start/run, see what is under start.
May be some worthless stuff related to the card or monitor.

Some disagree, especially tech from companies and say get drivers from the cards website. I think windows update does just fine with graphics cards and monitors. Could be a monitor driver as well.

But my point is updates from websites often install stuff you may never need. Nor want performance wise.

It'd probably be safer to uninstall from add/remove first, reboot the computer
sometimes it'll get redetected. then uninstall from device manager and reboot again to make sure it's completely gone (should default to generic VGA). at that point you can reinstall the driver from scratch.

because otherwise the driver files are still there and it'll autodetect upon reboot.

unless that IS your goal. then do as you mentioned originally.
this behavior hasn't been standardized (despite Microsoft guidelines) and your results may vary depending on device and manufacturer...

Guys i need some advice. i am 28 year old male, livin in Eastern europe, at the moment im working in warehouse and all of my life worked physical jobs but im also attending college(Multimedia technologies degree)
Im very uncertain of which career path to choose. im very introverted, have terrible anxiety but still i want to move on in life, one of my main character quality is that i have very rich imagination and good sense of humour(dunno how that helps lol)
So i must choose between few different career options:
  1. Sound engineer and producing(i like it alot, but huge downside that there are practicaly no jobs in my country for that branch)
  2. Graphic designer,like Photoshop master and etc.(its ok but i kinda suck at drawing,in a sense i never trained myself how to draw)
  3. Programming games or software (alot of job offers for this, but sometimes i think its too hard for me, since i cant into logic and ima brainlet for maths)
  4. Web developer (lots of jobs, but kinda meh for me)
  5. 3D artist,animator ( looks fun)
  6. Sysadmin or helpdesk, like IT route (well, maybe its boring but i think requires least brain usage)
So what do you think guys, what would be the best and most lucrative career path for an old fart like me?
Maybe some of you already working in one of my listed fields, and could share expierences? ive tried so many of these things, but if i want to make something out of myself i need to focus on one specific thing i guess ;/
Thank you for your time

Sup /tech/

I'm not sure if this is a subject better suited for you or /vg/ but hopefully some of you can share some experiences.

So basically I have used the Razer Goliathus Speed mouse pad for about 2 years. Although it's a great pad, I was really having issues with friction under my mouse (yes I would periodically clean the mat but it never seemed as smooth as it once was) so at the suggestion of my friend, I decided to try out a hard mouse mat.

I ended up getting the Corsair MM600 and for the most part, I like it. My problems with friction are obviously gone and I feel like flick shots are a lot easier. Pixel accuracy is still a bit difficult but I've had the pad for almost a week and am hoping I just adjust to it.

I do have one issue though, I tend to sometimes spin out (point at the sky) or the tracking will stop short on big swipes. I've read that sometimes the sensor can't keep up with fast movements, however this is a Logitech G Pro mouse I'm using. I also have used the surface tuning in the software (the hard pad preset seems the best).

I would like to know if anyone here has had similar experiences and if the problems went away after awhile (maybe breaking the pad in or something). I really don't want to stop using the pad but it is fucking me over a bit in FPS games like Siege or Overwatch.

Thank you.

Well I changed the feet and you were right, my aim definitely feels better now and the problem has almost completely gone. I still had a few issues, but I have a theory that the problem is me with the way I swipe my mouse and going to a lower lift-off distance. I'm thinking with the higher lift-off distance I was still turning because I was lifting off the pad early. I'm going to keep it low though and just adjust to it.

Thanks for all the help.

Old windows 7 installation merging to new one by ClaraBaffingdock.cda - Sun, 26 Nov 2017 22:57:22 EST ID:notOZan7 No.121449 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hey /tech/, I have a rather perplexing problem on my hands, and I'd figured i'd ask you guys here since you've rarely let me down; Is there a way to merge all my programs, settings, registry settings, files, and basically everything from an old windows installation to a new one that was installed on the same disk that the old installation is on?

I have a folder on my new OS install called "Windows.Old, which is basically my old setup but I have a feeling that if I try to move that folder to my new one it will not have the same effect as a full migration.

So what I'm asking here is this: Is there ANY software that will allow me to perform this kind of operation or am I just stuck with a fragmented set of my shit from both installations? Has anyone had this problem before, and if you have, what have you heard about it?

The windows.old folder is a backup folder for windows 10 upgrades that allows you to roll back the installation in case you recieved a major update or you have upgraded to Windows 10.
The folder is basically a backup of that earlier Windows build or installation.

If you have Win7, and want to reinstall Win7, you can export any registry changes via regedit > File > Export...
This wil generate a .reg file with the selected registry folders, keys and values that can be installed on the new install.
You cannot select multiple items in regedit, so make a.reg from each of the HKEY folders if you want a full backup

Files can always be backed up to another drive or USB stick.

If you have Win10 and want to reinstall Win7, you can and should only move the files.

For some programs (eg. Steam games), you can copy the files and folders to another drive or partition, and then re-add the given folder in the program. After some verification, the games will usually work again

Copying settings varies from program to program

There are a few limitations of the easy transfer,

Actually more than a few. It is designed merely for transferring, an install to another hard drive, or another computer. It cannot be upgraded from, say win 7 premium to ultimate. The .old file will not work this way.

My guess is person installed windows within windows. no mention of what the old windows was.

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/recover-personal-files-from-windows-old-in-windows-8/ Same principal I assume.

win.old is created when there is an existing windows already installed. Or like 7 8 to 10, upgrade, where again, there was already a windows version already installed.

I recently had to move cross country and to stay under max luggage weight I took my PC apart and took it on my carry on.

I put it back together but now its not producing any video.
It's starting up fine but doesn't send video signal regardless of what monitor or cable I try.
The fan on the video card does startup for like 5 seconds when you turn the system on then it stops, so I know it's getting some power.
It seems that I might've connected the cables wrong because I don't knowcable im doing.
It's the 2014 asud essentio series.
I'm gonna post a few pics in hopes that someone spots my error.

Does the system make any beeps when turned on? Most motherboards will give an audible error if no functioning display device is found during start up. You did try the on-board video as well right?

Yes I tried the on on board video card too, as well as multiple monitors and both hdmi and dsub.

Modern web browsers are essentially live interfaces which can be modified on-the-fly, even as you are reading a page.

The human mind is a reality rectification machine which will rationalise inconsistencies in its input if they appear in a blind spot, such as changes being made to a web page during a saccade: the constant instances of rapid eye movement during which you are effectively blind.

Webcams are omnipresent are perfectly suited for retinal tracking.
