    Reinstalling Windows 8 on my Dell Venue Tablet. Help!

    Long story short. Have a Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet. I received it second owner from a person who upgraded it to Windows 10. All sorts of issues, no sound, runs poorly. Want to go back to windows 8 but the recovery partition is gone. My question, is the operating system essentially just a desktop...

    Editing .PSD files. Any non-subscription based software?

    So I play Assetto Corsa and race in leagues. One of the fun parts for a particular season is having an option to design a livery for the car you are racing that season. The files are .PSD and I've been told photoshop works like a charm. Of course, recently they've gone subscription based, I...

    Windows Blu-ray Playback software

    Looking for free or inexpensive playback software for windows 10 Blu-ray. I have a drive i just don't have software. I keep seeing 50+ dollar applications which to me is a waste of my money. I don't need anything fancy, but if those are the only choices i might as well sell my drive and cut my...

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    Thank you for your advice and I 100% agree. A studio without nice monitors is not a studio. These are 100% not studio monitors. For everyone, I ended up going with mackie Cr3's as my local store had them and I couldnt stand my current set malfunctioning. I am happy with them. Very neutral sound...

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    Looks like the local guitar center didn't have anything to demo. Well, they didn't have anything the guy could figure out how to use on the demo set ups so I got nothing. They have a 45 day return policy so I'm probably going to have them order the Mackie cr4 set and if I don't like them or they...

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will head to my local guitar center as I recall them having M-Audio speakers on one of their displays. I'm afraid the build quality of the AV42 isn't as good as the AV40. Also, I thought the Bose were decent. Not great, but for 50 bucks second hand and the size they...

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    Thanks! Do you find the sound of the companions near the same level as the AV's or the Mackies? Or are they just not comparable?

    New Speakers! M-Audio AV42, Mackie CR4, or Creative T40?

    These are the three speakers I'm looking at. I want a plug and play 2.0 set that can be moved if need be. I cannot fit bookshelves with an amp somewhere otherwise I'd do that. I essentially want a solid set of speakers that will last and sound good. I currently use Bose Companion 2 speakers that...

    PC Audio Fluctuating, Appears to be Speakers, Please Advise!

    I appreciate this response. I can safely crack into the case if need be. It hasn't crackled at all, the audio quality is still solid for what these speakers are if you don't look at the fluctuations. I'll see if i can produce any distortion or crackling noises, then we will know the issue for...

    PC Audio Fluctuating, Appears to be Speakers, Please Advise!

    I have been having issues with audio fluctuations on my PC (Windows 10). They are spontaneous, sometimes worse than other times. Last night it was unbearable. An example of the sound fluctuations would be placing a pillow firmly over the speaker, then removing it. Sometimes its only half a...

    Installed 1080Ti & now comp keeps shutting down

    Upon reading other comments, I recommend EVGA G2 650w or the Seasonic X psu's are nice as well. If you want top of the line, BeQuiet! Dark powers would be my choice of PSU. Cheers!

    Upgrade Time, RX 480 or GTX 1060 with my PSU?

    Also.. if I can get a 1060 right now for $150 barely used on the forums.. a 480 plus a newer psu (180 plus 40 or so??) I don't think I need to go further.... if I got a new PSU.. I'd pick up a 980 for 220 and call it a day

    Upgrade Time, RX 480 or GTX 1060 with my PSU?

    No creig.. I'm limiting my upgrade path because it is not that important, and if I can manage to get a slightly better GPU I'll be happy. Going for a 1060 is the pinnacle of an upgrade for me and I'm only considering it because, why not get the best available. I could go with a 1050 or even a...
