    At wits end - pc keeps sometimes hard locking when exitting games or wake from idle

    Running windows 7 home premium 64bit, all legit and completely updated. When the computer hard locks, there's no events in the log. So it's a hardware problem. Running stock clocks makes no improvement.

    Will 2010 (Finally) Be Blu-ray's Year?

    I'm not motivated to replace my modest DVD collection(about 100 or so DVDs), but every movie purchase I make in the future will definitely be BD. What's the point otherwise? We got 2 HDTVs in the house, 2 BD players, what's the point buying DVDs at that point.

    Obama Picks Net Neutrality Backer as FCC Chief

    Did your Asus P5Q-E board come sealed or stained?
