I can't extract any archives, nearly every single one I get an error saying it's corrupt, but I can extract them if I switch to my linux install.

found a seemingly-legit iso off piratebay, put it on a flash drive, tried to go through advanced boot options via win10 settings, got the prompt shown here >>64710911
so i tried to just run the setup from the flash drive, it got to 2% then crashed when it couldn't delete the $windows~.br whatever folder
so i tried to delete said file manually, but the system didn't allow it, so i tried using disk cleaner, but that got stuck on scanning the system files, so i said fuck it and just gave up because this computer does NOT want me to install win7 for some fucking reason.

In BIOS you will need to turn SecureBoot off and change UEFI to Legacy to install Windows 7.
You could install Windows 10 LTSB on it if you have problems with drivers, most cheap laptops like those have compatibility problems
with windows 7 because they use cheap WLAN cards(Wifi adapters) or really cheap Touchpads that lack legacy compatibility, not all but they exist.
Source, i fix computers for a living.

>What is windows 10 LTSB
Windows 10 demonetized, removes all the shit Windows 10 comes with, you still need to turn 2 things off manually but is nothing in comparison to what you have to do with home and Pro versions for them to be usable.

You already did a backup of your old stuff right? if so in the Windows 7 installer it will give you the option to delete everything if you want to or automatically backup everything to a folder.

Ive dowloaded some meme probability puzzle app with random puzzles and there it is the birthday problem.
What is the number of people required in room in order to get probability of common birthday greater than 0.5. I get it, cool. 1 - 365/365 * 364/365.......(365-n)/365 >0.5. The answer is 23 people, okay cool.
Now doing it my way the probablility of 2 people in a group of 2 having bday on the same day is 1/365, now considering only pairs not trips, quads etc. The probability of 2 people in a group of x having bday on the same day seems to be 1/365 * n! / (2*(n-2)!) aka 1/365 * (n-1)*n/2
which results in 20 people being enough. This shit is driving me mad. Where am i wrong? I know that in my method im considering only pairs but that should make req number of people even higher cause im not accounting 3s 4s and so on

Well you need MBR for Windows 7, by default you should use MBR setting for CSM/Legacy.

MBR?
it's a Lenovo ideapad 100S-11IBY

>>64711303
MBR(Master Boot Record), you dont need to look into it, Rufus will do everything you need.

Anyway, i been researching and you have 2 huge problems with that laptop.
Lenovo locked out the Legacy/CSM option in that laptop so you cant install Windows 7 on it correctly (Unless you use a GPT install but you wont be able to activate it).
And second they locked the 64bit OS option too for whatever reason.
Download Windows 10 LTSB(Windows 10 Enterprise) x32 instead, it will work like 7.

So I figured this was too stupid to ask on /pcbg/, so Im doing it here. If I were to buy a b350 motherboard and pair it up with a 2200G, would it work out of the box? I read an anon saying one would need to update the motherboard, but that doesn't make any sense because amd can't expect people to have a gpu and ryzen 1xxx processor just to apply the update to make apus usable. Unless the update is only to make higher clocked ram compatible. Yes, I feel retarded, but that anon's comment is weighing on me.

Color wont make a difference, what matters are speed and timings.
Your motherboard can support 8GB RAM unofficially but compatibility is a hit and miss(nForce 430 chipset).
If it doesn't work just refund it.
If you are going to upgrade your computer anyway save the money and do it, you cant reuse DDR3 RAM on new computers because they use DDR4 only.

Reuse your GPU.

So
My buddy bought one of those pre-built gaming pc's
(this one: https://www.amazon.com/SkyTech-ArchAngel-Gaming-Computer-Desktop/dp/B01M3UKNVD/ref=lp_8588813011_1_6?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1518497614&sr=1-6)

He called me over to check it out because it was acting weird. So I did a basic check- pretty much just making sure everything had correct drivers, etc. He told me he noticed a couple things:
1. it was running very slowly at first
2. it installed a windows update prior to being connected to the internet
3. a command prompt terminal popped up and disappeared when he first ran it
4. Attempting to run windows defender shows an infinite loading cursor, and causes the computer to run slow

I noticed that this wasn't a base install of 10, it had a custom wallpaper with the name of the company, none of the normal windows bloat, and a couple of third party programs like team viewer, prime95, and some graphics card test program

There was no product key to be found for windows, so no fresh installing

So what do you guys think the deal is?

Chromium is Chrome minus the botnet. I use it regularly. I don't have Netflix so idk whether that works, though everything that works with Chrome I've seen yet works in Chromium.

I've also observed that uBO works less well in Chromium/Chrome compared to Firefox. It's fine on most pages, but on Youtube it fails to block video ads. So I use Firefox for all Youtube watching.

I think I see the issue. I think I'm seeing a screw going through a heatsink mount, then into a metal standoff that I'm assuming goes through the PCB and connects to the shell.

Where is the other one broken off? Seems to me what you need is something holding the heatsink thingy down to the PCB. If there's space (or if the remainder of the standoff thing can be cut/broken off the shell), you could get an appropriately sized nut+bolt with thin head and plastic/rubber/silicone washer to prevent shorts, and put the bolt through the board and then the heatsink holder.

>>64712504
There's the screw, the flat metal thing is connected to the heatsink, and then the cylinder on the bottom is connected to the PCB. It's kinda like those barrel legos, there's a narrow part on the bottom of it where it connects to the PCB. On the one that's not connected to the PCB any more it's because of that bottom part. I assume whatever adhesive was used broke, I can't get under the PCB without disassembling it more than I know how to.

It should but its not a good idea at all.
You should also repaste it because once you remove the heatsink fan once the paste is useless.

It's a laptop so I don't need to repaste it, maybe it's not a heatsink and I'm just calling it one. It's the copper bars that lay on top of the CPU and go to the fan. Should I go to a hardware store and see if I can get some epoxy? Would that work better than super glue?

What has the screw threads in it? If you can get the screw or a bolt through the hole and all the pieces it's supposed to go through, you can either get it in some semblance of the original screw threads or a nut (or put the bolt in the other way up).

The barrel piece doesn't need to be mounted to anything if it doesn't contain the threads that hold the screw down. It can just exist between the PCB and heatsink, held in place by the screw.

If it does have the threads and is supposed to be stuck to the PCB or something under it, you need to find some other way to hold the heatsink down to the PCB, and my suggestion would be a nut-and-bolt setup.
>>
>>64712602
Unfortunately it's the barrel that has the threads, it doesn't go down to the PCB. If adhesive won't do the trick then I guess I'm going to have to find a good way to bolt it down.

If you want to do more extensive testing, I'd recommend taping a fan over the builtin one and plugging it into a molex or non-controller fan header (i.e. always top speed), just to pull some air through even if the busted fan is reducing the airflow by sitting there.

>Also, has anyone tried using 120mm cpu/case fans on GPU's rather than what they usually come with?
This works. You don't even need to remove the fan assembly from the GPU a lot of the time. Just pop the fan blade assembly out so it doesn't obstruct airflow, strap your new fan on with zipties, and plug it into a mobo fan header or molex.

Of course you can get fancier and remove the fan shroud, fully remove the old fan, and solder the new one to the GPU's own fan output so it can (hopefully) control your new fan directly.

>>64714580
Oh, and remember open-type GPU fans usually blow DOWN into the heatsink and out the sides, and blower type ones blow through the heatsink and out the back of the case.

I can get a nice flagship phone for a very good price, only catch is it has a snapdragon 810 which is notorious for overheating. How bad is it for general use?

Complete excel newbie. Is there a way to set formulas to use arbitrarily selected rows as inputs (by control clicking to group) and calculating against static columns? In this example I've chosen Cells 3E,6E, and 8E. I want to calculate their sum and output it to 16L (marked in red). I can see it sums it in the bottom bar (also marked in red) but I want to do other calculations using the same rows but different columns.
I may want to select a different group of rows next time and thus can't just hardcode 3E+6E+8E. Is there a way to do this?

Something like this for the output cells:
Red column outputs go to L16=(SelectedRow1E+SelectedRow2E+SelectedRow3E)
Green column outputs go to Cell L17=(SelectedRow1B+SelectedRow2B+SelectedRow3B)
Blue column outputs go to Cell L18=(SelectedRow1C+SelectedRow2C+SelectedRow3C)
Purple column outputs go to Cell L19=(SelectedRow1G+SelectedRow2G+SelectedRow3G)

>>
>>64717092
Lib gen isn't a torrent site anyway is it? DDL stuff like that is pretty safe.

As far as your original question, well almost always it's not your ISP keeping track of that, unless you're connecting from a university network or something. (They are notorious for monitoring and punishing pirates so be wary in that case.) Usually you only get in shit if some copyright enforcer catches you, usually a third party company that scans torrent swarms and sends out letters in batches on the behalf of companies they contract with. Usually doesn't go any further than that, but if the prospect worries you then just try to stay off public swarms, especially for certain types of content. Recent movies/TV/games/music are the most likely things to get you flagged, books are probably pretty safe. If you put in some time and climb the private tracker pyramid then you're unlikely to run into the issue anymore since it's kind of more effort than it's worth for those guys to do the same just to catch a small fraction of what they can get on the public sites, though whether this is actually worth the effort for you depends on how much stuff you actually download.

I'm familiar with programming but never did any web development, and I've been thinking of writing a booru plus a crawler to download pics from other sites, or a futaba-like imageboard with archives.

I'd like to know if the language used has much effect on performance. I see board software being written in PHP, Python, Java, Go, Ruby, C#, Haskell and even one that seems to be written in Plan 9 rc somehow. Is there some guide as to which languages (or board softwares themselves, for that matter) are lighter on processing speed, disk access and other server resoures?

Or is the programming language itself negligible and the software itself is what determines performance?

While I'm at it, I'd like my site to stay JS-free if possible. I've found some sites listing CSS wizardry, and this Gallery CSS thing seems particularly nice. But any ideas and opinons welcome.

TL;DR: how do I take a bash command outputting a string to a series/array of outputs? Like take a string
this is a string
, deliminate it by a space, and have store it in an array so I would get something like:
arr[0] = this
arr[1] = is
arr[2] = a
arr[3] = string
?

For example:

I'm trying to create an alias to automatically xrandr --addmode && xrandr --newmode && xrandr --output an undetected mode for my external monitor.

The way to do it (which works) is to run:
gtf 2560 1080 56.0
(my monitor's resolution & refresh rate)
Get the following output:

# 2560x1080 @ 56.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 62.44 kHz; pclk: 213.79 MHz
Modeline "2560x1080_56.00" 213.79 2560 2720 2992 3424 1080 1081 1084 1115 -HSync +Vsync


copy the part after Modeline and put after --newmode i.e,
xrandr --newmode "2560x1080_56.00"  213.79  2560 2720 2992 3424  1080 1081 1084 1115  -HSync +Vsync


I tried automating with:
    export mlOut=$(echo "$(gtf 2560 1080 56.0)" | tr -d \\n | sed 's/.\+Modeline \(.\+\)/\1/') &&
xrandr --newmode $mlOut &&


It stores the correct output to $mlOut, but
xrandr --newmode $mlOut
seems to be treating $mlOut as a single string instead of multiple arguments like how I want it.

Imho server-side language shouldn't matter that much. Most of the work will be on database and caching and those are pretty language-agnostic. Go can give you a few tools in base and save some dependencies, but not much. Even PHP would be legit (although people would notice thanks to .php file extensions and laugh at you).
No-JS front-end is possible. Best feature JS gives you is AJAX which can request resources from server without reloading full page (e.g. for Update button). You can really make things work without JS and whoever allows it gets these little features. But you might need some anti-bot JS against bots, not sure how to handle this without captcha or authentication.

Haven't seen the movie, but if it's meant to be a sentient or near-sentient AI then it's not that farfetched that it would act in a way the programmer didn't originally envision. You can't really predict every possible action that a program like that would take. Even relatively simple programs will have bugs in them where they act in a way the programmer didn't want/predict in response to whatever obscure situation they didn't think of when they were making it.

She's meant to be a perfect waifu-companion in her looks/behaviour, but she's just a hologram/projection from a console in his apartment.

He later buys an accessory called an enamator - which allows her hologram to travel remotely away from the console and out of his apartment.

Later in the movie, shit happens and corporation are after him. As he's about to run away, Joi suggests he deletes her from the console so the corporation can't access her memories (which implies she dies if the enemator is destroyed).

I found it really strange - why aren't her memories on (((the Cloud)))? Would she really know all that meta information about her own programming? Wouldn't they be able to access her remotely with some form of backdoor for situations like that?

So performance is more a matter of features and database handling than language, good to know. Thanks.

Speaking of which, I found a couple of imageboards that worked without databases, they just used static HTML files and appended them as needed, which doesn't lock the file. Imageboards are perfect for this, it seems, since almost all operations are just a small addition of HTML representing a new post.

As far as I can gather, this databaseless model works great for small sites because it's faster and uses fewer resources, but with a large userbase a database would eventually be necessary. Does that make sense?

How would it not send any data to Google if you're using their services?

just installed LTSB on my old Y580 lenovo.

i have a 250gb mSATA ssd, 1TB HDD SATA in a caddy (where the optical drive was) and a 1TB SSD SATA (where the original HHD was)

the OS is currently on the 250gb SSD but i think i could use macrium to copy to 1TB SSD.

i want to use the 1TB SSD as my main drive, but RAID? with the 1TB HDD so there's a backup image. (not the kind of back up that's compressed and reqs some program to revert to previous)

how to go about this please?

ps: i want to use the mSATA to install linux (need to learn that shit)

>How would it not send any data to Google if you're using their services?
I didn't say that you don't send data while you are using them. You do. But its negligible. Most of the time you just leak metadata while using GCM. Any three letter can also access that data so this metadata leak op sec doesn't have much importance on a wild type person.

You can't, least without reinstalling the os. Your computer is booting/configed for UEFI mode. It adds those extra partitions due to how UEFI/GPT works. Plus you got system recovery (drivers/Apps) there that you need if your main install ever gets fucked up. Back that shit up first before you format/erase thing on that drive

My case comes with two 120 mm 800 rpm generic fans installed, one at the front and one at the back. I want to add a third fan (got my eyes on a 120 mm 1200 rpm), would it be better to add it to the front next to the default 800 rpm one or to put it at the back and have both 800 rpm fans at the front? I don't know how much air the default fans can move but the one I'm looking at can do 68.4 CFM according to its specs, I don't know if that's a lot.

What's the best 120x120mm fan out there?

>>64721187
yeah. i backed up to external.

there has to be a way. if it can add partitions, should be able to remove them.

Starting a few days ago i noticed my computer fans going crazy whenever i booted a game. I checked MSI and my temps are around 70c for both GPU and CPU which doesn't seem to crazy but Task Manager puts my CPU usage at 100% when all i have going on is my browser and my game.

Im not too knowledgeable about this side of computing but i dont think my CPU utilization should look like this when im just using my browser and nothing else.

There is but it ain't easy. You gotta disable UEFI and boot in regular bios (legacy mode) which means a total reinstall of windows plus all drivers and applications. format the drive during windows install as mbr (default since its in legacy mode). Your secondary drives can be converted to gpt after windows install to enable 2TB+ single volumes. If this is just a 2nd drive now (not booting), just left (or maybe right) click on disk 2/basic and select each partition. Click delete.

CPU temps can fluctuate pretty rapidly depending on load, but it's also possible the sensor is off.

As long as CPU stays under 100°C it's fine, but it's better to have lower running temps so the hardware lasts longer.

So I'm supposed to fucking get people to "follow" me for some interesting tech discussions one day, and then take them on a guided tour of all the increasingly deprived levels of my hentai fetishes the next day?

Am I understanding this correctly? Is this seriously how this shit works?
Surely I'm missing something here.

Of course you are not going to put hentai, only "normie friendly" hobbies. Otherwise yeah, basically everybody can see all your hobbies in Facebook, you can't restrict which hobbies you show to certain people.

I'm working with a repository on GitHub desktop for a team project and I'm totally new to it. I've made changes to the local copy, but there is now an updated repository I need to pull.
How do I commit/push my changes without fucking up the new stuff and pull the new repository?

In some C++ programs I've noticed they do this thing where, instead of including everything in the .h file,
like how I was taught you're supposed to do, they have some #includes in their .h file and some #includes in their .cpp

Why? I didn't even know this was possible frankly.

Is this like super common?

With all these advanced computers being made, and many of them intended for government usage, there's a lot of cyberweapons being made to compromise these systems. So it made me wonder, is it possible to make a system made out of old consoles? I reckon they'd be "too dumb" to be able to be infiltrated, and at worst would just shut one particular unit down.

If I use a USA IP to connect to a USA based server, will that decrease overall latency?

Thanks!
