  • Why can't everybody use the same software?

    Why do we need so much programmers when everybody can use the same source code ?(few coders to modify it a bit here and there). Why we need million different website when we can all shop at amazon?(ok we need few more, but no with lots of zeros in numbers). I know we need variety, but common? Isn't simpler and streamlined better?

  • PC...Is this upgrade worth it? pls suggest...?

    Best answer: You didn't mention what your budget is, round about. We could've given you suggestions based on that. Not knowing what your budget is, here's a somewhat reasonable list of upgrades for you:

    https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JwFLgL

    Your current motherboard is a micro-ATX, so the replacement is also one, assuming that's what your current case needs. I'm assuming that you're going to want to keep reusing existing pieces on your current system, such as its existing hard drives, the case, and power supply. So the list only includes a new motherboard, new CPU, new RAM, and low-mid-tier GPU. For the CPU, I chose the G4560 Pentium, which is currently the sweet spot for value gaming, at least until Ryzen 3 processors come out. 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, 2 x 4GB. I also chose an RX 460 as the value GPU, it should easily play most games at medium or high settings at 1080p. Unfortunately at the moment most AMD video cards are almost all sold out, due to the rising popularity of cryptocurrency mining, such as Ethereum. So a good substituted might a GT 1030 (slightly cheaper) or GTX 1050 (slightly more expensive). Altogether this list would cost about $250.

  • Problem with Intel Windows 7?

    For a few years now, I've had Windows 7 32-bit installed on laptop. The problem was that it is 6 GB RAM, and at the time, I didn't know that a 32-bit Windows can't read more than 4 GB RAM with some dedicated to graphics, etc... Anyway, I've learnt a lot of about it and through research, I've made a custom Kernel that unlocks the additional RAM found on PC. (No I didn't use PatchPAE or any other ready to use RAM patch. I only used the bcdedit commands using cmd). So, on one hand, it worked. I got 5.86 GB usable instead of only 2.87 GB. On the other hand, Intel HD Graphics 4000 is a huge pain in the rear. If I disable it, I can't use NVIDIA GT 620M graphics to further boost performance. If I enable it, I just get a black screen when reaching Welcome screen. So, I customized the Intel HD graphics. I "updated" the driver using Windows XP Intel software, and modified a .ini to make it work for Windows 7 32-bit. Good news, it did. Bad news, instabilities were created in the system, and NVIDIA (with either old or new) drivers STILL can't be used, unless I update Intel back to the official and current patch, the one that results in a black screen. Other integrated graphic card brands don't cause me this much trouble. Why does Intel suck so much?! Also, where can I find an unofficial patch that can alter the software characteristics of Intel that allows 6 GB usage as well as NVIDIA graphics access?!

  • My Computer wont accept new ram?

    I was trying to add new ram to my computer and when i added the new sticks in it would load for about 20 seconds then automatically turn off then turn back on and repeat, i managed to get into the bios and saw that the computer was recognizing the ram but the computer was just turning off i tried almost every configuration of the new sticks with the old, only new , and then staying with the old which is the only way the computer will turn on and stay on. my motherboard is a Intel H57 Express, i have a Gtx 960, Intel core i5 650, and the factory installed ram is 6 GB. my guess is the motherboard just wont accept new ram because the same ram sticks works on all of my friends computers just not mine. i just need to know why my computer wont accept the new ram and how i can fix it.
