Hey anons, there's a way to startx automatically on login? I've read that you have to modify /etc/inittab, but I don't have it. I also couldn't find ~/.bash_profile nor /etc/systemd/system/[email protected]/override.conf.

From my understanding, Meltdown has already been patched out of pretty much all OSs and Spectre is soon to follow (though the patch will supposedly come with a performance hit due to how it will impact speculative compute).

Just ride it out until it's patched. Spectre effects every x86 processor made by AMD and Intel over the past decade so there really isn't a lot you can do to be proactive about it besides taking your device offline until it's safe.

Okay so can you tell me what is broken here?

I was playing some games on my desktop, suddenly the monitor goes blank and white. Teamspeak is still working though so i assume it's the monitor.

I restarted and it was still white as soon as i turned on the monitor with no monitor splash screen, I tired multiple cables etc. I also connected a laptop to the monitor and i only got the white screen again.

I grabbed an old TV which has VGA / HDMI input, and tried to connect the pc to that instead however although the TV recognises something is attached there is no display only a black screen. I connected a laptop to this TV via HDMI and then VGA and both displayed perfectly fine.

Have i somehow fried both the monitor and the PC? I mean teamspeak was still working after the screen died but the fact that i cant get any image out of the PC on a separate display is concerning me.

Sorry for the shit thread, i'm just a bit frustrated.

Yeah i've tried
Monitor & P DVI, Displayport & hdmi
TV & P VGA & HDMI

I was going to reseat the graphics card but i figured since the monitor seems fucked anyway that probably wont fix anything.

Monitor just displays white screen when disconnected from everything and won't show up any brightness / contrast options and doesnt come up with "no signal".

Anyway i was thinking power surge myself but surely the PC would have crashed instead of just ruining my card?

If it was a surge it sounds like one component on the card ate it. You should open the case, see if the fan spins, and look for any obvious damage.

Never mind think i've fixed it, it was an old TV and looks like its VGA input is damaged so that's why there was no display with that cable.

I just got a picture up using a different HDMI cable than the one i was using.

So looks like a faulty port and a bad cable was causing my confusion.
I guess the monitor just decided to take a shit and die, only bought it on the 1st so i'll just get it replaced.

Thanks for giving suggestions though man

This means I will never be able to charge it again and I will have a dead phone.

Turns out if you change to a new Bluetooth adapter, and you don't uninstall the old one, Windows will remember the devices that were connected to it FOREVER. There is some fuckery behind the scenes and if Micro$oft hasn't fixed it by now, they arent gonna. Maybe someone smarter then me can crate some registry key editor to fix it?

Luckily I still had my old adapter and it worked long enough for me to plug it in and uninstall it, because as far as I can tell the only other option is a fresh windows install.



So just remember, if you change Bluetooth adapters, UNINSTALL THE OLD ONE.

Is there an optimizer that will stop windows 10 drivers from assigning my entire goddamn memory space to the non-paged pool and doing nothing wiht it?

This has been going on for 3 months.

And why the fuck does the start menu/search bar not pop up like, a third of the time I hit the button?

Why the fuck is a quarter of my memory in the non-paged pool, which should normally be like, 80-300 megabytes? I'm not getting SMBLoris'd or anything. This is just my goddamn computer.

AND WHY IN THE FUUUUUUUUUUCK does the suite of tools from microsoft that allows developers to debug drivers in the non-paged memory pool break features of Visual Studio that developers need? I can't even inspect this shit because of that.

Windows 10 is at least twice as much of a shitshow as it was when it came out. This is the opposite of progress.

Wait, RAM booster as in shitty program a site wants you to download, or as in a feature some motherboard makers advertise?

If it's a program it's junk. It just allocates large amounts of memory and then frees it, forcing everything else out to swap. Then only the stuff that's needed gets loaded back in. This used to help in some cases in Win98 when memory management was shit. But today Windows memory management is good and all it will do is chug your disk a while.

If you mean the motherboard feature, it may help some. It's a BIOS function that overclocks the RAM automatically when you run it. It tweaks the clock speed and timings to try to find the fastest stable values for your RAM. The boost is often pretty modest but ymmv.

I actually installed the Windows driver toolkit to check the memory pool out.

>>121463
Nope.
And even if it were, that still wouldn't go to the non-paged pool. It would be in the paged pool, not getting paged for lack of space.

Anyway all the FMic and Irp tags tell me is that this leak is coming from some sort of network driver allocating buffers and never releasing them.

So that part where I said I wasn't getting SMBloris'd? Well proliferating orphan network buffers is how that exploit could run servers with 128gb entirely out of memory.

It could be any of the half dozen physical or virtual network drivers on my system.

Will it hurt anything if i turn my motherboard's "video out" on?

I want to plug my PC to my big TV but the HDMI on my video card is messed up.

Will it hurt anything like using too much power of put too much demand on the cpu if I turn the motherboard's video out on?

Worst case, you'll have no video and need to move your cable to the other output to get to BIOS setup and revert the change.

Enabling integrated can be used to add more monitors, or to give you a way to access the host system while PCI-passthroug-hing your real GPU to a VM, or to use QuickSync to encode video if it's a recent Intel CPU.

>That's not how these ISP warning emails work. They emails come from your ISP but they do not originate there. There isn't someone watching and when you hit X amount you get an email.

uploads is what they are more concerned with. Say one has 80% upload speed with ten of the newest movies albums, without unlimited peers for weeks on end and in the end they manage to have uploaded a few of terabytes thate gets notice. The EFF on lawsuits explains to not upload files from your computer.
A quick downwload of 3 gigs at 3MBs and 15 kbs up minimizing peers and speeds for uploads (sharing)
one may have uploaded maybe 75 kbs by the time the 3 gig file is done.

Sharing uploads is more resource intensive and that in the past created throttling.

>A torrent gets tagged, whatever company it is sends out notices to the ISP and then the ISP sends you the warning email(HBO and Disney are particularly bad about this). Not all ISPs will send them but most do. Regardless your DL speed and whether or not you upload has nothing to do with it.

The more you upload the more $$$ the industry see as a loss. Limiting peers and speeds to near nothing
will barely see a loss. If one is downloading and uploading the same file at the same time that is a little bit more easily identifiable. A quick download and barely uploading 50 kbs will likely not be noticed.
Sure people have gotten warnings for downloading a file, but as well they almost certainly were uploading at the same time and left the file to be uploading 244/7.

Since everyone is talking like a fag and their shit's all retarded, i'm just going to give you the straight dope, OP. Check out cryptostorm, it's a VPN(or encrypted packet routing service, as they like to call themselves) that makes use of "access tokens" that are sold in a decentralized manner, and also decouples your payment information from your authentication with SHA512 hashing. They don't require anything but a payment, no billing information, no registration, no databases of customers, no logging, no bullshit either. Been using them since their inception and i've had nothing but incredible speeds and some pretty great security on their end.
