    Best Budget Gaming Card?

    Which card around $200 or less would be the best bet? My old GTX 960 has crapped the bed and I need a replacement without breaking the bank. Would the new GTX 1050 Ti GAMING X 4G or the EVGA 03G-P4-6160-KR GTX 1060 be a decent upgrade for my failed card and if so which one since there is only...

    Any way to reflash tablet operating system?

    My daughter received a cheap tablet for Christmas (Trio Stealth G2 10.1") and it already won't get past the startup screen now. It's already too late to just return it to the store and apparently the company is next to impossible to contact about RMA's (support number is always busy) from what...

    Help with a new Kepler GPU

    Just bought a new Kepler based GTX 660 Ti and I can't get it to fold using the FAH GPU Tracker V2.

    Retrieving Windows 7 key

    I bought a laptop (a Gateway) a few months back mainly because it was a good deal and it had a legit Windows 7 install on it (not an OEM install).

    Civilization V Crashing Problem Late in Game

    Did they ever get the Civ V late game crashing bug straightened out yet? Love the game but is sure is a pain in the arse to have to quit a game before finishing it because it won't stop crashing late in the game. I'm not going to try it again until they have a fix.

    Any way to unlock a locked hard drive?

    A friend of mine had a hard drive password on his old laptop and since he hasn't used it in awhile he forgot the password. Any way to remove the password or unlock it? He doesn't really need any of the data off of it so it doesn't matter if it erases it. Anyone have any ideas of any programs...

    Windows 7 and Motherboard Replacement

    I, like most here at the [H], like to change hardware frequently. Is there a version of Windows 7 (Full maybe?) that will allow me to make major changes to my system (such as a motherboard) without having to buy a new operating system as long as I only have it on one computer at a time? I know...

    I'm about to pull the trigger on a new build and I'm going to give my 15 year old son my present X2 6000 system. I decided to just go with a Black Edition proc and wait for the Phenoms to get the clock speed up before I jump in there. Which Black Edition processor would be the better one to get...

    Call of Juarez question on load times with Vista

    I've played Call of Juarez completely through twice (one on medium and one on hard) in Windows XP and the load times weren't too bad.
