What do you mean, "Unity hates it". Does it cause games to crash, or does it just not work? If the latter, then my guess is that you've set it up incorrectly. I don't see why Unity would not work with this controller emulator.

hey /tech/

so i had this old seagate 1TB external for years, it was attached to this shitty plastic base external powerpack which eventually broke (the powered base thing)

so i stripped the plastic shell, and plugged the HD on to my power supply and sata worked fine but slow

one day it stopped working, when i plug it in you can hear it loading very loudly (might get recognised for a second) then gone and tries to reload.. seems to be in a constant state of trying to boot

i dont hear any clicks from it either. i tried several things like looking at all connecetd devices and it was a no-show. also tried a usb > sata connector same

im assuming it must be a hardware issue. what steps can i take to save any of the files.

any help appreciated cheers folks

The most realistic fix:
Broken sata cable and/or port, so try it with another cable and/or port, clean the contacts.

Longshot:
Buy the same exact hard drive and try replacing the whole electronics pcb with the one off the one you bought.
This will probably not work, but if you are desperate it's pretty much the only thing you can do yourself.

If the data is that important to you then I would send it in to a recovery specialist.

In the future you should really be backing up important data. At the very least onsite backup+ offsite backup(can be through a cloud). At 1tb this should be pretty cheap.

For my media server I run 3 disks of parity(192tb raw) plus an identical backup and really important data gets upped to the cloud and put on a separate drive and stored in an anti-static bag in my safety deposit box.

I'm trying to install windows xp on an old laptop (why xp? the laptop is 10 years old and licensed for xp.)

The install disc I had keeps asking for a license key, and rejects the one on the sticker on the bottom of the computer. So I torrented one, but it's in Russian (lucky I understand Russian, but I'd prefer English since I'm giving the computer to my wife) and fails when copying the files to .

Then I found that the first install disc I tried stopped booting. Jeez. I'm starting to remember why I went to Linux.

Can anyone suggest a good way to install some kind of windows XP? Is ReactOS good enough yet? I seem to remember there was some kind of cracked version which was like what Linux folks call a distro? Basically I have no idea what I'm doing.

It's very much Server 2003: XP edition. The reason it's so awkward is that 64-bit x86 was an uncertain thing in the early 2000s because Intel wanted to protect its Itanium margins.

Depends on your OS and the desktop environment kernel of what is supported. Update your kernel if you haven't or if one is available.

(Updating kernel may break things. But all in all it's
kinda rare. Just don't be using all kinds of programs
when you do updates.)

Refresh your package updates and update again.,

As far as old driver, no big deal. I believe deb releases are
every 6 months? The driver people did not catch up.

Sometimes, older version are better for an established system, until
the developers catch up,

What's the path to bookmarks and history in Chromium on Linux? I reinstalled Arch and kept my home data but made a new user/home directory, and I'm not sure what I need to crossover. I copied and pasted ~/.config/chromium/ which gave me extensions but no bookmarks.

How does everyone feel about this new Linux Phone crowd funding effort? Especially if securephone guy is still around, what do you think?

They're trying to separate the phone/radio stuff from the cpu stuff to be more secure. Also there's hardware killswitches for Bluetooth/cam/wifi/etc.

Sounds pretty ideal, but $600 to buy in... Plus it's crowdfunding, which you never know if it will deliver. Anyone know much about this company?

It's going to have to be a custom board in low volume, so the unit cost won't be competitive.

>Plus it's crowdfunding, which you never know if it will deliver.
I would bet money that phones will ship with all the important stuff like kill switches. I would also bet money that the software will be lacking and the overall UX will be janky.

Loud fan

Hello, fellow 420channers.

I, once again, came to ask for a piece of advice.

I built a PC from brand new components, but my CPU fan is too loud and it sounds a little incosistent. This is my setup (no GPU involved):

MB Gigabyte B250M-D3H, s.1151, DDR4
CPU Intel Core i5-7500 (3,4 GHz, 6MB, LGA 1151) BOX, KabyLake
RAM Kingston 2x8GB DDR4 2400MHz CL17 SR x8 (KVR24N17S8K2/16)
HDD SSD Samsung 850 EVO, 2.5", 250GB, SATA III, Basic
CORSAIR VS550, 80+, 550W
NET GIGABYTE WB867D-I, PCI-E

I use the fan, which was in the CPU package. Perhaps the fan itself is shitty and this is causing the problem. However, I collected some data, while in BIOS and I would like to know whether these are normal.

In normal mode, fan rotates at
1000 RPM (19 degrees celsius) MIN
2500 RPM (64 degrees celsius) MAX

While in BIOS, the CPU's temperature is at 49 degrees celsius. In normal mode, it means around 2000 RPM and it is very loud. When i switch to silent mode, I get about 1500 RPM, which is acceptable.

Is 49 degrees in BIOS regular temperature in the first place? Is there anything wrong with the CPU itself, or the default fan is just shitty and I ought to buy a new one?

Thanks in advance for kind answers...

Loud fans are usually due to bad wiring or a bad fan it self or a dying fan. Get it a new one. The CPU temp is well on the average side and I doubt it has anything to do with that.

49 sounds high for a new CPU. what you want is firm metal-to-metal contact between the CPU and the heat sink. the thermal paste is just to fill air bubbles.

Hello all.

Right now, I stay at a dorm, and at night, a lot of my peers here are constantly sapping up bandwidth; before I continue, I'm just going to say I don't want to do this *constantly*, but just at certain times when it starts becoming frustrating to have to do schoolwork.

I read about this program called KickThemOut, which runs off of Debian and also MacOS, neither of which I am currently running on my laptop. I want to use it, and create a partition on my HDD so I can boot into Debian and give this a shot. Besides Win32-Loader (image related), are there any othr techniques I can use to basically "force" certain IPs off the network without admin status?

Install Debian to a USB drive, then enjoy all the free time you're going to have. Normal people report network interruption to IT and at a minimum what IT will see is a bunch of machines that aren't yours dropping from the network.

Hey guys,

First off I'm sorry for posting about what must be a redundant subject.

I'm looking for a GOOD mechanical keyboard with keys that don't make all too much noise, relatively speaking.

The 'Logitech G810 Orion' looks like a pretty good one to me and has very positive reviews wherever I look.

Do you yourself own a mechanical keyboard? Which one would you recommend, if any?

Thanks a bunch in advance!

If it's gaming you want get a linear smooth switch type like Cherry reds or blacks.
If it's typing you want, get the tactile browns.

The non-tactile switches confer essentially no benefit for typing compared to a conventional keyboard, though some of them only require a very light press by comparison.
The non-tactile switches also do not have any kind of deadzone they need to be lifted past to re-actuate. You can just wiggle your finger near the actuation point and they'll spam fast as hell.

Storing a laptop longterm

So I might leave for a long period of time, like at least one year. I am wondering:
Is it okay to store a laptop inside a cardboard box inside closet? Summers can get really hot here but only last like 4 months and I'm unsure whether this is a good idea or not.
Shall I leave the battery in or take it out? Does it make any difference? Also I don't want it exploding caused by heat and humidity. Also also is battery life going to worsen by not turning the laptop on for a long time, plugged or unplugged?
And most importantly, is HDD going to get fucked in anyway?
It's an old snsv EEE 1000 laptop that's been serving faithfully for more than 10 years without any problems whatsoever except changing thermal paste, I'm amazed how reliable this thing is but I don't want to kill it stuffing in a dark place.

take out the hard drive. that's really the only part that's valuable (unless you got a gaming laptop, in which case all the hardware is valuable)
turn it on again and see if you hear the noise. if yes, then it's just the fan. maybe it's really hot and they're kicking up. check the air outlets for dust and blow some compressed air if necessary.
if no, and you think it was the hard drive that was making that sound... well I hope you have backups. if you do have backups, then just get a new hard drive and reinstall your OS, and restore your data.

strangest thing ever... it was actually bios trying to boot usb first. last time i turned off the laptop with the usb stick plugged in, and unless there was a stick in, laptop would make some really scary noises, not sure where were they coming from but didn't sound like hdd or fan. all i had to do was plug in usb stick in while the laptop was booting and everything's fine after that.
i'm still going to proceed with long term storage, but just wanted to share this weird experience.

Hey guys,

I don't have the money to buy a complete new build right now but my AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB keeps giving me crashes.

I was thinking of buying a used GPU in the meantime to at least have a stable computer, while I put money aside for a brand new PC.

Could someone recommend me a GPU that has similar performances and is on the cheap side?

Thanks in advance guys!
