    older computer does not want to post

    Popped out the mobo and connected it to a new psu and still no sounds and no displays. Looks like it's toast... RIP crappy amd64 mobo ...

    older computer does not want to post

    Thanks. I'll try it tomorrow and see what happens. This is my dad's old setup and I'm going to give it to my aunt. I've built him a new i7 based computer. I'm sure he'll love it.

    older computer does not want to post

    My dad's old rig refuses to post. Nothing shows on the screen when its turned on. I've installed a PCI express card and still nothing. Used the reset CMOS pin, nothing. Unplugged the memory, no beeps. Unplugged everything but the power supply, nothing. The computer is fairly old and is...

    Cambridge Soundworks Bass Cube died ... what to do now?

    I know it has been three years since I posted here regarding this issue. However, I found this thread after my third replacement subwoofer started failing. One thing is for sure, I'll never get a Cambridge Soundworks product again...

    I have no idea what I'm doing, please assist with my audio build

    Thanks on the replies guys. I've learned some darn good stuff here. One quick question, is there an inexpensive receiver that does not have any fancy features, but just allows me to plug my computer to 5.1 surround and has an HDMI cable to the TV. Something really simple as I don't need...

    I have no idea what I'm doing, please assist with my audio build

    Hey everyone, I have been using these ancient cambridge soundworks speakers for the past 7 years. Today, the subwoofer died and I'm ready to upgrade. I live in a condo, so I have to be respective of my neighbors, and therefore I don't need anything super bassy for my setup. I have my...

    Getting an used Samsung LCD HDTV, need a second optinion

    Hey everyone, just wanted to post back since I got the monitor. Best $500 I spent. The colors are soooooo crisp and movies look great on it. Heck, I'm writing this from my sofa! Anyway, I got a DVI -> HDMI adapter and a HDMI cable. Both from random sellers on ebay. Total Cost $5 or so...

    Getting an used Samsung LCD HDTV, need a second optinion

    Fantastic. Now all I need is a HDMI cable. I wonder if my samsung monitor came with one .... :confused: It be nice to have a longer cable given the setup of my living room. Thanks on the link! I really don't see the point of getting new technology unless over the net video streams are...

    Getting an used Samsung LCD HDTV, need a second optinion

    Well I was thinking of using a DVI -> VGA converter like this ... I guess the ATI one would work minus the audio on my nvida card. However, I'm using my 5.1 system hooked to the pc, so it really does not matter if I use the speakers in my monitor. Unless I need 7.1, which is kinda silly for a...

    Getting an used Samsung LCD HDTV, need a second optinion

    A friend of mine has a plasma and watches lots of 16:9 ratio movies. The bottom and the top of his screen have little red dots from all the black being burnt in. It could be that he has a first gen plasma, but I really don't want to expect that type of breakdown in a few years if I choose to get...

    Getting an used Samsung LCD HDTV, need a second optinion

    Thanks on the link and the info. I am trying to stay away from plasmas due to how they age. I have been looking around slickdeals and craigslist for a deal on 42-50 in lcd, but had no luck without getting something either 720p or backlit. Given that my friend's TV has a VGA in instead of a...

    Howdy there fellow HTPCers, My friend is trying to sell me his Samsung 46in HDTV (LN-T4665F). You can see the specs here (.pdf) . The only reason I'm getting it so that my girlfriend and I can watch hulu, nextflix etc in the living room (right now we use her laptop). My friend is selling the...
