    RAMa Lama Ding Dong

    I just realised I still only have 16Gb of RAM in my three year old rig (CPU, memory and mobo are that old, other components have been upgraded since). My Asus P9X79 Deluxe can take 64Gb in total but...

    Thanks. I did contemplate Googling but I was too lazy to figure out how best to type it in, plus I'm busy and that's what a forum is for! ;)

    Yeah, I seem to remember having to set something in the BIOS otherwise it would panic every time I booted up.

    ASUS Fan Xpert

    I have an Asus P9X79 Deluxe motherboard. I've had it a while and it's pretty awesome; a bit long in the tooth now maybe but it still handles most things I throw at it admirably. For controlling the...

    Yup! Both Lexacom and Wiggly Amps wanted to install the necessary files on the main server but the IM&T provider for East Leicestershire wouldn't allow them to. Idiots.

    I've got a wireless Xbox 360 receiver. Was thinking of getting rid though and buying a wired Xbox One controller instead. I don't play that many games to warrant a controller on PC. Depends if it's...

    What, and that gets around Securom? What sorcery is this?!

    Yeah anyway looks like it was the disc causing all the strife. I guess I must have left some other problem discs in the drive on those...

    No lightning strikes or other electrical events that I'm aware of. I'll give that discharge a try. I honestly did not know you could do that.

    I guess I'll have to live with it. I don't mind the screen going off, as long as it doesn't do that when I'm actually doing something. I'll have to watch iPlayer or something and see if it still does...

    Why is my monitor going to sleep?

    My Samsung S27B971D monitor keeps going into standby after about 20 minutes of inactivity (i.e no keyboard or mouse movements) despite all settings (Windows 7 and the monitor's OSD) set to never...
  17. Creating a website - no such thing as a free lunch

    I've looked at so called "free" website hosting before. My attempts to sign up with a few always end up with me discovering it's not at all free, not in the slightest. So perhaps there aren't any...

    Cannot download any Windows Updates

    It's been a while since I last ran Windows Updates for Windows 7. Indeed I think the reason why is because it hasn't been reminding me in the notification bar (I have it set to let me know when there...
