  1. Hi everybody :


    Microsoft is pushing Windows 10 Operating System on everyone. There are a few flaws with this new OS. One.......it can ONLY be installed via a download. Two.......if, by accident, you have a System-wide crash, there's ho way to re-install it into the computer. IT HAS TO BE INSTALLED VIA A DOWNLOAD. Thereby, making your computer nothing more than a paper-weight. And, you'd have to purchase another computer with Windows 10 pre-installed. Three......this move by Microsoft is going to damage sales at computer parts outlets/stores. Hobbyists who just built their dream machine won't be able to install Windows 10 (to get the computer functioning). You have to have a functioning computer in order to install Windows 10. Thereby making your computer nothing more than a paper-weight. Currently, I use Windows 7 Professional. I have an install disk I can use for the re-install. With Windows 10 you don't have that option. Wake up America !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. 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.

  3. 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 ALREADY new versions in tact.


    I've never had to deal with such a large number of files at once, lol. My normal setup is to just copy the entire thing once a month to a separate folder, then overwrite that backup monthly with new stuff.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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?

  9. 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 couple more gems like this to pop up over the remainder of the year as AMD has already pretty much said they have no intention of releasing a fresh line before then. They have also referred to a refresh in existing lines. Not only does this give even more price point wars against Nvidia, but also gives AMD a nifty way to reduce stock of chips that don't fit properly in the lineups.


    If you want to speak technically though, it basically comes down to a discussion of pitcairn vs tahiti, but that's already been hashed enough online.
