Both 7 or 10 will work in this laptop since it uses a A8-6410.
if you install 7 use windows 7 Ultimate you just have to install 4.5 net framework and Run Dazloader, drivers and that would be it.
If you want 10 install LTSB (And install the April 9 cumulative update pack so you install 3 years of updates in 40 minutes since the stock version has a problem with Realtek WLAN cards) open group policy to disable defender, updates and tell windows to not download drivers on its own.
If you install 10 LTSC also install updates because this thing was a mess on release (All Windows 1809 releases were broken) but the updates fix it.

TLDR install 7 and disable updates and defender.

thanks for trying to help, but without being specific on where to look it's impossible to "Disable key logging and application logging." because there's a million subfolders in "Windows components" and no way to search.

as far as i can understand the keylogging you're referring to is "Inking & typing personalization", which can be turned off inside Settings > Privacy (and not in group policies)

found some more things to disable in Services and Task Scheduler. this is terrible, I'm glad I at least waited this long until getting windows 10 because from what i can read microsoft didn't even have many of these privacy settings at the start, they have been added throughout the years (biggest improvement was in 2017 from the looks of it).

maybe next time i'll try the https://ameliorated.info/ windows 10 version, have you tried it? although it feels like swapping trust in microsoft to trusting some random russian or whoever put together that version of win10...

Usually "port forwarding" is what you'll need to setup in your router's settings. It will forward certain outside traffic to your server.

is there a program I can use to test my gpu or diagnose faults?
I have an rtx 2080, have had it for around 8 months and it was fine to start with however I was only using a 1080 monitor. Ive since switched to 4k and almost everything I play has issues.
No Mans Sky crashes to desktop without error and in the windows error log there is an unknown error with with an nvidia dll.
Subnautica has some odd flashes of green geometry on screen, it doesn't crash but this is quite jarring.
project cars 2 randomly freezes up, but without error even in the windows event log.
GTAV doesn't crash or have any on screen issues but performance is appaling...I don't think im hitting even 20fps.
BF5 and anthem both crashed to desktop within 10 minutes of starting to play. Not too concerned here as im not a huge fan of either game.
Project Gemini 2 the image freezes but I can hear the game continuing and am able to fire weapons etc, I just cant see it happening.
Far Cry 5 shadows are on acid and flying around the screen randomly and frequent ctd.

Left 4 dead 2 plays flawlessly, as do any 2D only games ive played.

I only really want to play NMS and subnautica, the other games I installed just to see how they ran

Most of these issues only occur at 4k (except subnautica, I get shit with that no matter what resolution) so my thinking is that theres a problem with some of the memory on the card and at lower settings im not using that memory

How can I test this?? and is 8 months too long for me to be able to send the card back? At £780 I expected the card to perform well and last a few years at least :(

Anyway, computer has recently been just rebooting randomly whenever I start up a game and play for a few minutes (specifically Rainbow Six Siege and TW:W2). When I start it up again after it's rebooted I can play them perfectly fine but it's getting annoying and not sure what the cause is.

There's no reason to not upgrade, really. This "use the version that came with your computer" thing is from the time integrated graphics were located on the mobo itself, so some brands could do some tweaks and the official driver wouldn't be compatible. Now integrated graphics are on the CPU itself and they all use the same standardized driver.

>> No.70842199

>>70841743
most likely the files you attempted to compress are already compressed, like jpeg pictures or mp3 audio
compressing a particular dataset isn't guaranteed, there's a finite limit to how compressed something can be (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information_theory)
even if you don't get it, it's pretty easy to accept that it doesn't make sense to be able to compress the same thing to half it's size over and over, something has to give
things like jpeg and mp3 are already heavily compressed compared to the original data they represent, and so passing them through something like 7zip won't yield any useful additional compression

Hi, I need help, cause I don't know what to do at all

I've bought a new monitor (4k) and I am connecting it via hdmi
This new monitor absolutely does not work with a discrete video card I've got (gtx 1060)
But it works perfectly fine with an integrated video card

I have already tried to plug-in again my old monitor (via hdmi as well) and it works with a discrete video card

If you don't have the charger close to you you will be fine. Pretty much the two dangerous things that can happen to electrical equipment are: catching on fire, and giving an electric shock. If you're not touching it the second isn't an issue, and the first might cause damage but just don't have it on your lap and you'll have a scorched floor at worst.
Unless you're recharging at night, in which case it could cause a housefire and you might die.
This is worst case scenario of course, a more likely danger is that depending on how well (or rather, poorly) your laptop is protected against really chinky chargers, it might fry something. Honestly just get a better one, chargers aren't hard to get right so even high quality ones will be like $15, don't try to save fucking ten dollars by going for an utter chinkshit housefire hazard for $5.

I should mention that the array is powered on and off daily, since it's in my personal machine.

Should I just buy some Blues or something and just make sure I have a few spares? I typically buy four drives when doing something like this, two for the array, and two cold spares.

But in a decent resolution should still be decent.

What do you want a high refresh rate CRT for? still at 800x600 should work at 90 and in 1024x768 it would work at 75Hz.

Honestly I was just surprised they give devs macs but not screens.

800x600 @ 100Hz (RTS games)

also keep in mind, crts are only limited by how many /lines/ it can draw at a particular speed
that is, that "640x480 @ 120Hz" mode i mentioned, is really "480 lines at 120Hz", the "640" part can be anything you like, it doesn't care. you can throw it 2560x480 and it'll still do 120Hz no problem
the issue is of course, aspect ratio. if you can adjust your game's aspect ratio, you can squeeze a clearer picture through by increasing the horizontal resolution like this

oh, also, the 480 lines is just a common one, if you do some testing, you might find it can do a little more with non-standard line counts, maybe it can do 120Hz with 500 lines, or 520 lines... probably not 600 lines, since it has a 100Hz mode for that, but between 480 and 600 is "maybe", not "no"

Hey, I made a few posts like 3 weeks ago and nobody replied but maybe now somebody could help.
Had a PC with windows 7 go through a brown out while turning off
Monitor (was good, tested it on a different PC) wasn't getting a signal. Used the onboard GPU to troubleshoot and w7 was refusing to load the dGPU drivers, tried with a dozen different things and nothing worked
installed Manjaro
the GPU still gives no signal while booting up, so I literally don't see the BIOS prompt screen, but signal does eventually come out once the OS loads and then it works perfectly
I'm now on w10, testing stuff with the iGPU, and the device manager does recognize the GPU, no problem, and GPU-Z does too, but it still gives the monitor no signal, not even after the OS loads
GPU-Z also claims the GPU is working on PCIe x16 1.1, when the board is capable of 2.0

Dude DS4 windows is fairly straightforward in terms of installing. Just extract and run, no major shit. As for how it works, just connect the controller to the pc via usb and turn on ds4 and it just werks. You can configure the buttons in the program itself but by default it behaves like a standard xbox 360 controller. You don't need any special adapters, just a cable that fits the controller, even cellphone cables work.
Emulators and bios I think you should just google because I'm pretty sure there's tutorial videos on how to make them work that will be easier to follow then text instructions.

couple things to check easily are core temps, get something that can put your core temp in the task bar, just google that phrase and you can find something.
If it's overheating and crashing you could get some extra case fans or a new case or something.

you could also get a bootable memtest and see if one of the ram modules is fucked up.

Thanks for the reply. Some of that's really shitty. Fortunately I don't think it's a hard drive issue at least since it only happens with games (unless it has to do with Steam itself perhaps?).

I downloaded Speccy to keep track of this stuff and my cores idle at 35c and jump to 45c when I open the game and alt+tab back to Speccy. Never even heard of a bootable memtest so I'll give that a shot before I do anything else.
