  1. Got CB & Y also? Well damn. I only seem to stumble in here about once/twice a year now. Not a lot of activity anymore. Miss the good days w/ Forum Wars.
  2. Why not just extend the wires on your own? Cut them and splice in the exact length you'll need.
  3. Media creation tool > make iso to recover
  4. running a 4-5-6-7 series card in folding would be FAR more efficient than the older cards. If done 24/7, heat production and power consumption drops would probably pay for the difference in the entry to mid level cards and you'd be getting a TON more units done. Considering the goal of folding, you could view the requirement of newer hardware as a 'going green' sort of thing. Also, $200-300 cards aren't the fancy ones You'd need to step up to the $800-1000 range for fancy, lol.
  5. Well :filtered: ,,, stating the obvious, that blows.
  6. Free would be a relative term after that year sub buyout, lol. Plan on the expansion at all?
  7. Either of you still playing that disaster? Became FAR to much of a grind fest for me
  8. Need to print this thread and frame it! This is starting to be like a HS reunion 8)
  9. In fairness, any virus that doesn't have a definition installed in your AV scanner will slip by.
  10. No it would not. If ALL the files in the original location were the oldest, then it would be fine. If the newest version of the file is mixed between the two locations then you'd end up with some of the newer and some of the older. The basic windows option just simply assumes that you are intending to overwrite ALL the files in the location when you check that box and tell it to do it to all. I don't know of any third party software, but you make look into some backup suites. They should be able to tell if you have a newer version and use that to overwrite an older while keeping the AL
  11. Bruce, the one he is moving is older than the one he is replacing. That's not what he wanted to do. If you are curious and don't know ahead of time which one is newer (the one you want to keep) then I would recommend checking them as you go through them just to be sure.
  12. I believe the auto-detect uses java off the website. Personally I have left Java on and in use. I actually do use it quite often and as irony would have it, a couple game I play use java as well, including Minecraft. I've suffered no ill effects from having Java which leads me to the belief that it isn't having the program that is the problem, but what you do/where you go that IS. My 2 cents
  13. Not DIRECTLY to your problem, but if you did get a card designed for the desktop and you felt up to modding, the antenna could always be removed, rewired, and relocated. But you are more or less dead on, this is a newer standard (I haven't even seen a system using it in person yet). Early adopters will always have the most problems. The Intel forum would indeed be the best place to keep trying to ask questions as they are far more likely to have worked with their own hardware.
  14. I'm not sure about CB's experiences, but I've used windows update for driver updates (excluding graphics and main chipset) for years on dozens of computers with no ill effects. So the external drive does NOT appear in Windows Explorer? Can you take your external drive to another computer and see if it will work? You should not need a manufacturer driver for that drive since (from what I can see) there is no encryption chip.
  15. Never fooled with widi before, but I can say that any hdmi cable should work for hdcp auth. Also, RTSP is Real Time Streaming Player, so I would assume that's just a warning the app crashed on the computer and it's showing it on the tv. After googling this whole thing for awhile and reading over your post again, looks like it boils down to driver/application issues. The net seems full of issues with WiDi just not working properly yet. Hopefully someone actually with this working comes by!
  16. Driver can make a huge difference. I havent used the new 3dmark much yet, but on high end systems, you might mot see a change untill the third test. I'm also still on vacation and posting with this thing is a slight pain, lol
  17. wait, only one of the 2 clips moves? never seen that before O.o
  18. Had a friend who called their ISP about slow internet, they had him disable the touch screen to speed up the internet, LOL Said it was spyware.
  19. Sounds more like you had a bad cable on one of the devices and it shorted out the usb chipset. The board could also be possibly shorting to the case. Could try removing the board and setting it up on a piece of cardboard or something non conductive and seeing if it effects it. You have installed the chipset drivers and any possible usb patches?
  20. Going on vacation tommorow, so if you try and get ahold of me, it might take a few days. Others in here are also more than willing to assist so don't be afraid to post if you run into an issue! Hope you enjoy the new card
  21. because it's not a fully released sku, that's why it is labeled the same as the regular 7870s, lol. And without a seperate sku, it's up to the card manufacturers to decide what they want to build out. Powercolor alone has 4 or 5 cards labeled 7870. Could also be the fact that they are simply made with the bottom binned 7900 chips and I doubt AMD would WANT to nerf a fully functioning chip away from a 7950 for about a hundred bucks less. There was also at least 2 other manufacturers and cards (one being the XFX DoubleD ) with the tahiti LE chip in them. I would honestly be expecting a c
