    How do I install downloaded music to WMP?

    Hi. I just purchased an album from the artist's website. After DLing and extracting the files, I cannot find Windows Media Player anywhere in the files, nor can I seem to drag and drop the folder successfully. I was told to find the "File" drop down and then to find "Add to WMP" option but...

    Fallout 4 high-resolution patch-Can you run it?

    According to Bethesda, the recommended system able to use this high-res patch would be a six-core i7 and a gtx 1080 GPU. That's at 1080p, mind you. I'm presently playing @ 1440p, so my i7-6700k/980ti SC+ rig might be wheezing a bit much-nevermind the 4k monitor I have still in the box. Does...

    Another 1440p or go for 4k?

    I have been very fortunate to enjoy this cheapo S. Korean 1440p monitor, but it's been three years, and I don't want to tempt fate, so I'm looking to replace it. I don't need the faster monitors as I only game single-player RPGs like Fallout 4/Skyrim/The Witcher: Wild Hunt, so most of the...

    Does MS recommend a movie/Blu-ray/DVD player in lieu of Media Center?

    I have tried the Free program, Leawo Blu-ray Player, and while it does work ( I haven't tried a Blu-ray yet) it is so exceptionally slow that it is practically unworkable. I would gladly pay for a good program, but I don't know which ones are good? Does MS address this anywhere? And why is it...

    Is 1600p enough screen real estate to warrant upgrade from 1440p?

    Now that I have a new z170 system, and seeing how low-priced the higher-def monitors are now, plus the fact that I need another monitor ( my brother is the recipient of the old but still very potent gaming rig) I was wondering if going to a 2560x1600 monitor would be a major boost in screen real...

    Windows 10 How do I get a disc to run?

    After countless issues and a time-frame when the internet was down, I re-installed Windows 10. The problem is that inserting the driver disc does nothing. How to get it to play? I can see the files on it for the E: drive, but none look like an .exe file. How do I get the disc player to...

    How long do IPS monitors last vs TN?

    Good afternoon. I have a S. Korean/LG 27" IPS monitor (1440p). I read that TN panels generally last upwards of two years if left on all the time. My monitor is also on almost all the time, so I wondered how long an IPS monitor would last? Do they last longer, the same, or worse?

    1440p videos shut off at the 10sec. mark every time.

    I asked this about 6 months ago and got no responses, but perhaps with the prices going falling on high-resolution monitors, someone has found a solution to this minor issue. What happens is that when I click the full screen mode for a YouTube video that has up to 4k resolution available, it...

    1440p videos switch to 480p @ :10sec mark.

    Good evening. I have an issue with hi-def videos. I have a 2560x1440 monitor, and a gtx 780 card, so I should have no problem running videos @ 1440p, but when I go to full-screen the video switches back to the small screen and downscales to 480p at the :10 second mark. Then, when I expand the...

    Windows 7 PC sound system just about complete now.

    Good morning. I posted here before, or rather at the former iteration of the Windows Forum, about how I wanted to replace the sound card with a digital receiver and some regular bookshelf speakers, because I found the Klipsch Pro-Media powered speaker systems ( I have both the 2.1 and the 4.1...

    Is there someone here that knows what's up with vRAM?

    Good evening. I'm an avid PC gamer, and I'm presently using an EVGA gtx 780 card to push the pixels on a 1440p monitor. The GPU has 3gb of vram, and so far only Skyrim has gone past the 2gbs usage of vram, and that's with all the sliders at Ultra and the HD patches installed, as well as a lot of...

    How can I get Windows to stop "checking for a solution"?

    As a gamer that has mods installed in many of my games, I'm well aware that sometimes things won't mesh properly, and the game will crash to desktop(ctd). My question is, how can I get around the Windows checking for a solution, which usually forces me to have to Ctrl/Alt/Del again to get it to...

    Striking the same key is now fubared.

    While gaming last night, I got very tired, and it seems that when the message popped up asking if I wanted to use the alternate function when striking the same key multiple times, I accidentally hit yes. I can tell because I have to wait to enter the same key twice now, and I have to wait to use...

    Unshielded speakers near the HDD

    I have a set of unshielded speakers near the PC case, and one is in front of it, near to the HDD. Is there any issues that might occur with a magnetic field possibly interfering with hard drive? I'm kinda liking the sound with the speakers set up just as they are, so I hope I don't have to move...

    PCI-E slots for GPUs and SLI/X-Fire confusion.

    Good morning. I can't seem to find a definitive answer to my problem. I selected my motherboard because it was SLI-capable. Unfortunately, when I upgraded from the gtx 580 to the gtx 680 4gb FTW card, I found that it was far thicker than the 580, and now almost completely covers the next slot...

    Am I the only person to try using an A/V receiver for PC sound?

    I have just recently purchased an A/V Receiver-Sony STRDH520, a low-end 7.1ch receiver. I also have a myriad of various speakers to use, from Klipschs to Polk Audio speakers to Bose 301s. I also just purchased a Polk audio 12" powered sub to go with these. Anyway, I plan on only using 5.1 right...

    Uninterruptible Power supply limits.

    This might belong in some other section, but my question concerns the amount of connections to an Uninterruptible power supply. See, I have an older, WW2-era wiring setup in my house, so I worry about too much on one fuse. I have the CyberPower model CP 1350c, with details, here: CyberPower...

    Would a better monitor help me?

    I have had an issue with monitors since the first 1080p model. What happens, every day, is that I can't keep from moving the monitor because it looks like it is facing me at an angle, no matter that I moved it 12 sec. ago, the next page or image will have me moving the monitor to compensate for...

    Programs are installing on both the SSD and the HDD

    After thinking that I'd fixed an error in the PrecisionX program for my new GPU, I find that it is not fixed. While looking to see that it was installed properly, I now find that all of my programs, including every game from Steam, is installed on both the SSD and the HDD. How did I mess up like...

    A question about wireless internet connecting

    I just received a wireless router, the Linksys EA3500. It has 4 ethernet connections, for connecting printers, cameras, etc. to the network. This might be a dumb question, but can a laptop also connect to the internet via one of these ethernet plug-ins? I have a gaming pc and just purchased a...
