Browsers not displaying pages

I've been beating my head on this one for a while, and I'm finally admitting defeat. My customer brought me a computer with IE 32 bit not displaying web pages. Normally, I'd just say use firefox or opera, but Firefox, Opera, and Safari also fail. The weird part? IE 64-bit works JUST FINE!!! I've tri...

Re: Post your computing setup

My setups. They each have a cheeky name to them, which should be fairly easy to discern what they are.

Re: First Build, OC Fun

I'm pretty sure I'm getting the reading from the core sensor, where the first two cores are roughly the same temp ±1, and the third and fourth cores register ±5 of the first two's temp. I have another temperature monitoring program called PC Probe II. It's reporting 65C at high loads, so I'm not rea...

First Build, OC Fun

So, this is my first hand built machine. Quite proud of it actually; everyone went in and powered on without incident. I was worried that I hadn't seated the heat sink properly and that it was gonna cook my $200 i7 920. Regardless, it turned on, posted the BIOS, installed Windows 7 RC1, and accepted...

Linux to Windows AV with GUI

So, I'm looking for a free anti virus client for use on a Linux persistent USB drive for scanning viruses off of Windows partitions. avast! Linux Home would do this just fine... except that I'm using this at a student help desk for my university. Therefore, breach of TOS, and the lawyers don't like ...

Re: Ubuntu Persistant Flash Drive

http://www.pendrivelinux.com Man, I feel incompetent now. I was fooling around with a crappy install on the flash drive as if it was an SSD, and stumbled across this site. The persistent Jaunty install I have on there now seems to work as intended, except with one of my test computers. I have a feel...

Re: Ubuntu Persistant Flash Drive

If I actually INSTALL Ubuntu to the flash drive it boots fine. The problem with that is it is far too slow for practice. I want to get it so that you have the option to 'try ubuntu without making changes to the computer' and be able to save 'changes' to the flash drive.

Ubuntu Persistant Flash Drive

I'm trying to create a flash drive with the ability to boot Ubuntu on broken systems. I've been looking at this hack to do it with, but every time I try to load it on another machine, GRUB gives me Error 17. The machines in question are windows machines. I intend the drive to be used to fix errors a...

Re: HTML/JavaScript Collapsing Dropdowns

I found a way to do it mixing CSS and JS, using CSS to hide them and JS to make it visible dynamically. <div class="labelfieldpair"> <div class="label"> <label for="antivirus" id="antivirus1" style="display:none">Antivirus:</label> </div> <div class=...

HTML/JavaScript Collapsing Dropdowns

I'm trying to find a simple solution to create dropdown menus on a site so that the menus only appear if you make a certain selection in a previous menu, Wizards' Search By Product option being an example of what I want. I know practically no JavaScript. The only reason I'm on this project is that I...

Re: Power Supplies

Pretty sure it's a RAIDMAX. The case/supply was recommended by one of my coworkers from when he build a hackintosh. If that works, then I have all I need and can worry about expanding later with a bigger PSU and such. Mostly now I'm on the fence about adding a raptor drive and whether or not to go l...

Power Supplies

I'm starting to bring together the parts for my new desktop (this is my first DIY build from the ground up), and I'm having trouble figuring out Power Supplies. I'm not sure how to check to make sure my power supply can handle what I'm using. The supply I have comes with the case and it's a 500 watt...

Re: "11th Grade" Discussion

Reduce the sliver for homework down to zero and you have my high school 'career.' Especially in English. I took AP English my senior year to save money and time in college. I finished with a D- total in the class, and a 3/5 on the AP Test (passing, for those unfamiliar with the AP Test). My teacher ...

Hm, I have a supersoaker in my desk drawer. And by supersoaker I mean nerf gun with three spare magazines of darts. In a college dorm, you must ALWAYS be prepared.

System Design research paper

I am a freshman in college, and, thanks to a scheduling snafu, I ended up in CS1000, when I am a CS Theory and Analysis major. Doesn't make too much sense to be scheduled in that gen ed, but I have to play along for this semester, so I decided to make the best of the 'learning' project by designing ...
