For windows 7, easiest solution is Daz's Windows Loader, look for the one with the checksum 323c0fd51071400b51eedb1be90a8188. This only works if you are using MBR partition tables/legacy bios. Not uefi/gpt.

A google search for that should find you the legit version, don't download it from a scam site, and check the checksum after you download.

My laptop fan is making a ton of noise and sometimes it feels it's almost stuck, barely running.

Temp is ok... as long as i don't do anything too heavy ressources wise, but sometimes if the graphic card is involved (same heat sink), it goes up and up (90+ °C, proc) until the fan randomly starts blowing faster, or until i quit what i'm doing.

Dust isn't the issue, i've openned my laptop and cleaned what was there (almost nothing), i assumed the issue was coming from the fan needing some lube and i used what is displayed on the picture (not the Lion).

Since then, temperature is more manageable although same problem happens, and it can be even noiser than it was before when it's running.

I was wondering if i should use silicon grease rather than WD-40 ? Should WD-40 be enough ?

You'll have to replace the fan. Try silicon grease to extend the existing fan's life. Don't use WD-40. WD is meant to evaporate and when it does you'll be in an even worse situation.

Problem is that i'm using a Samsung Q310 :
https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Q310-34G-13-3-Inch-Centrino-Processor/dp/B001I45TAI

Changing the fan would be silly even i could find a replacement.

I would buy a new laptop but i can't find something "good" below $1200 (in Europe), while i paid $800 for the samsung (which was quite good in 2008).

At the same time i'm looking to build a new ITX desktop config, but i'm considering Ryzen too and ITX board aren't out yet, and it that regard spending $1200 on a laptop would be stupid, it's the cost of a decent monitor these days.

I've just setted up a little LAMP webserver and I ran some tests to see if everything was working dandy before thinking in getting a domain name.

I can access it just fine from any computer at my workplace, local IP and external ipv6. which obviously is expected.

Then I tried to access it from elsewhere, but it couldn't find my server.

After that I tried one of those millions of ping/traceroute websites from other countries and surprisingly they all can connect.

What the fuck is going on? Why it doesn't work within my country but it does just fine from other countries?

You can't modify a string literal.

>>59502124
char *test = "Test"
is is the problem. Change it to
char test[] = "Test"
and your code will work as intended.

Explanation: Arrays are always modifiable. The second statement declares an array of chars called "test", and initializes its value to {'T', 'e', 's', 't', '\0'}. The first statement is not something you want to do: it gives you a pointer to char called "test", and makes it point to a string constant "Test", which is going to reside in the read-only memory of the program. Attempting to modify this string gives undefined behavior.

Unless you've had both, you wouldn't really understand. It's a lot of little bothersome things that cheap motherboards do that expensive ones don't.

Okay, I never come here for tech support but I'm going fucking insane with this weird issue. Sometimes when I stand up while wearing my headset (the cord is about 6 feet so I have more than enough slack to move around a bit), the sound cuts out, but not just that, it will immediately cause a media resource 'failed to decode' issue with my browser if I'm watching videos or streams which usually forces me to close and re open my tabs. I thought it might be something with the in-line stereo adjuster so I disabled it, still happens. I thought maybe I had a bad USB port so I've cycled through every single one on my rig and it still happens.

The thing is I can't manually replicate it, at all. I can swing the cord like a jump rope or attempt to do whatever motions I think I'm making when the disconnection is happening and it will never happen when I'm trying to make it happen. The headset is a ~4 month old Sennheiser. One other problem I've been having recently, my mouse randomly not being recognized and forcing me to reset (again, changing USB port or unplugging/replugging does nothing), makes me think it's a motherboard issue. But again, I've never seen anything like this.

What for?, making the fans spin harder on idle will dissipate more heat on your room, what you want its a very step fan curve to keep the heat inside your case.

Depending on the manufacturer you need to download the application to control your card, for example MSI uses AfterBurner while EVGA use Precision X.

I would probably guess that as well from your description, but I'm not certain.
If you have it available, try using your stuff on another computer for an extended period of time, and see if that fucks up. I can't really think of anything else to debug it though, without replacing (possibly expensive) computer parts.

Those 2C don't bother you inside your case but it will in your room.

Gigabyte uses Xtreme Engine, you can find it on their site, alternative you can use Riva tuner which it its practically the same thing all OEMs but without the shiny GUI.

>>59505283
I should add, I was looking specifically for something that goes 30-pin female to USB micro male. I've seen a few things that are 30-pin female to 3.5mm audio plug, but I don't really need that because my car stereo has a 3.5mm audio plug, and I could just plug the phone directly into it. I wanted to try using the 30-pin connector so I could charge and play music at the same time.

Got an external hard drive I've had some problems with for months now, usually when I boot my computer I'd have to unplug and plug it back in to be recognized (though once recognized it would tend to stay recognized until I powered off the system completely) then today all of a sudden when I try to access it at all I hear kind of a swishing and low beeping ish sound and it dismounts, tried a few times and same thing happened. Is this most likely a problem with the enclosure and not the drive itself? Planning to pull it out and install it in my case but have to wait on a PCI card to add some more SATA slots since I'm all full up at the moment before I can test it.

Note that this is not the "click of death" sound, I made sure to go listen to what that sounds like and it's completely different from what I was getting. This sounded more like an electronic beep than a physical clicking.

HDDs are cheap, SSDs are not.

However modern SSD (Samsung 8xx, kingston v300, Crucial Mx2xx) have passed the point in which you can kill them with regular use, you would need to keep them working 24/7 for years to wear them down. So if you have a modern SSD, use it.

I've always had random problems with connecting to EU servers. With one provider I couldn't download at my full line speed through SFTP. With my current provider I can't upload at anywhere near my full line speed. Speedof.me says I have up to 10 megabits/second upload, yet I rarely see speeds higher than 1.5 megabits/second. I had to transfer some files from an NYC VPS to a different server in EU and it went relatively fast, I honestly can't remember the speed, it wasn't 1 gigabit/second but it wasn't anywhere near 1.5 megabits/second either.

If the only thing that isn't a match to the motherboard is the frequency, generally it should just clock the RAM down to something the board can work with.

My Micron C400 be a piece of shit and I want to replace it with some decent SSD, 120gb preferrably.

What should I be looking for if I wanted something noticeably better?
>>
So. I want to do something that is quite unusual for me.
I want to meet women, girls, men and boys who have interests and partake in their interests and share theirs with mine.
So, I am looking for social interaction.
But as the post implies. I have no idea where to start to sate my thirst for social interaction.
These are my current hobbies and interests:
Computer science
Genetics
Working out (calisthenics, cardio)
Learning to play music music on the guitar
Learn to draw.

Where should I go from there?
>>

If you really use a multimonitor setup often, go for that, otherwise stay single quality monitor. Simple as that.
>>
>>59508798
I get the impression that with workspaces I'd be more or less fine just focusing on a single monitor with well-arranged windows. I'm hoping someone who uses a computer for work can chime in.
>>
>>59508809
Just be learning how to quickly move between workspaces and the rest is fine. Keep in mind a lot of people use laptops for work, for instance.

>Keep in mind a lot of people use laptops for work, for instance
Yeah. I think my biggest pet peeve is the 16:9 resolution, but there are simply no options outside of extremely expensive monitors. I'd really like an iMac to be honest, but they're so damn expensive. Comparable monitors are like $800 by themselves... no way, José.
>>
>>59508903
Yeah, we're in 2017 and there's no indication of prices dropping for these resolutions most people should have. Most people are still stuck at 1080p or 1366x768 on laptops. I wouldn't say apple computers are overpriced as much as they just spend most of it on peripherals which includes the goddamn expensive screens.

Yeah, I don't think they're overpriced and I do want one, I just have a hard time justifying the cost right now when I've got a perfectly capable machine.

2x 1080p is my setup at home, and I love it to death. Nearly every application, website and videogame was made with this resolution in mind. 4K is what I'm forced to use at work, and I don't like it nearly as much.

>Nearly every application, website and videogame was made with this resolution in mind
4k scales well on macOS (looks like 1080 but with better fidelity) so this is alright

I'm starting to think that having a second monitor is more of a hindrance on balance, which is part of the reason I ask

I have been looking into opengl, and apparently the whole version/hardware support system seems to be a bitch to deal with

so say you want to use features like layout locations, you suddenly have to require really recent hardware (4.x-something) of your users?

How far back should you even bother having compatible code for?

I hear writing for old opengl versions is pretty painful

Halp pls.

I have a Cooler Master Silencio 452 which comes with an SD card reader on its front panel. I tried to connect an SD card to it, but nothing happens. The front panel is connected properly, the SD card works. I don't know if this is a driver issue, but I can't even figure out where my SD reader is in the device manager. Help would be welcome.

For someone going for a computer science degree, do future employers care more about a previous internship or the contents/abilities you show through your github?

Have you tried checking in that stupid flash settings panel in Control Panel? I seem to recall it being possible to uninstall both NPAPI and PPAPI flash plugins from there.

Or, download an uninstaller from the adobe flash website. I did that once too.

>do future employers care more about a previous internship or the contents/abilities you show through your github?
in my country they care about anything relevant.
They often asked me about my internship, if it was a success or not, and a few employers asked me if I worked on some projects on my free time, etc.

>>59509225
Apple is still using the 4.1, that's why a lot of devs doesn't port their games to this system.
Linux right now have the 4.3 whatever the GPU you're using, 4.5 for intel, and both nvidia and amd are working on the 4.5 version (amdgpu already have opengl 4.5)
For windows I don't know how is the support, and I don't really care.

Did it work for you?
Anyway, I don't have shockwave flash in firefox.
I wanted to stay secure so I'm trying to avoid flash, since it's on my pc do I need to update it even if I don't have it in my browser?
Thanks for your suggestions.

In Java regex, does
[abc] +

Mean any number of a, b or c followed by a space any number of times? Or does it just mean any number of spaces?

Does the + operate on the whole expression, or only the part it is next to?
>>
>>59509877
only the previous character/token/element

you can parenthesize "[abc] " to make it treat that subexpression as a whole

so
([abc] )+


I think you need some ?: stuff inside the parentheses to make them not treated as a group/capturing if you need to actually extract any matched results but that is an aside

>any number of a, b or c followed by a space any number of times?
[abc]* * 

>does it just mean any number of spaces?
It means one charcter belonging to the set [abc] followed by one or more spaces.
In regex the following always applies:
+ means one or more of the previous token
* means any number of the previous token, including 0
spacebar is a perfectly valid token

I'm really stupid when it comes to this, but M.2 drives use PCIe lanes or something (dafuq do I know) so if you have a graphics card or something occupying a PCIe slot, maybe the lanes are spent on the motherboard?

In a week or so I'll find out by myself if a B&M drive will work on whatever slot I have on my motherboard. Pretty sure it should last I did research on it.
