    Using two sets of speakers for audio output?

    Ah, I gotcha. I think the splitter is probably my best bet in that case. It's interesting that the sound card has so many output but can only take one input at a time. Thanks for all the help!

    Using two sets of speakers for audio output?

    Hello. I am trying to connect to sets of speakers to my computer. My sound card has multiple outputs, and I get all speakers to output with the test option in playback devices, but I can't actually make anything use all 4 speakers, they only use the two front speakers. I would like both speakers...

    USB 2.0 Ports on Motherboard Sometimes Stop Working

    Nothing in the BIOS that is doing it. Everything seems to work okay in the BIOS, but I haven't let it sit there for a while or anything. As far as third party software, I never bothered with it. Just usually install the drivers and that's it. I have video card utilities installed, but they have...

    USB 2.0 Ports on Motherboard Sometimes Stop Working

    Took a look at those settings and they are all good. Nothing is set to be turned off to save power and selective suspend setting under power options is disable already. I pretty much have it set to maximum performance over power reduction for when I game, so I don't think it's that. Thanks for...

    USB 2.0 Ports on Motherboard Sometimes Stop Working

    So here's my problem. Sometimes when I'm using the computer the peripherals I have plugged into any USB 2.0 slots freeze up and the ports seem to not work with anything. The USB 3.0 slots work fine even when the USB 2.0 don't, and the mouse and keyboard work fine in the 3.0 slots, so it's not...

    Windows 8 USB 3.0 Support Should Be Backported to Windows 7 via SP2

    Does USB 3.0 not currently work with Windows 7? I swear I've used a 3.0 External HD on Windows 7 before and got fast speeds.

    IBM Declares the End of the PC Era

    I don't think so, it will probably be similar to how it is now. People have low powered laptops and tablets, but most have a high powered desktop computer to go back to for the heavy duty stuff. Unless they're able to fit full fledged CPUs and GPUs into tablets, and unless they figure out a way...

    Delay In Accessing Hard Drives?

    Hello, I've been having a problem for a while now that I've decided should probably be fixed, and it is this. Whenever I go to access a hard drive, that isn't my SSD, I'll click on it or a program will try to open files from it, and nothing will happen for a few seconds, then I hear the HD's...

    Network Monitoring Program?

    It probably isn't the university's program messing up. Its probably some program on my computer using a lot of bandwidth and I just don't know about it. I'm not sure if it obscures uploads and I cannot test it with small files because the scale on the monitor is in Gb. But it is probably...

    Network Monitoring Program?

    So now that I'm at college I have an 8gb per week upload cap. I can check my upload usage via an online checker they have, however it saying I'm uploading way more than I am. I'll upload 5mb and it will think its 500mb. I'm looking for a program that can track the upload bandwidth of...

    Windows 7 Classic vs. New Start Menu

    Well as far as the start menu goes, its really only meant to open programs, not files. A simple folder on the desktop or even the library pinned to the taskbar takes care of that. So yes opening programs is much easier with the new menu regardless of the intention. For locating files, windows...

    Windows 7 Classic vs. New Start Menu

    I don't get why people don't realize that you can type what you want to open. For example in the pic from the post above the process would be Click Start Orb>Hover Over Programs>Hover Over Home Office>Click word. With the new menu its as simple as Winkey>type "word">hit enter I guarantee I...

    More than two montiors?

    Hmm, so then what kind of video card would be able to run more than two monitors? I know the Ati 5000 series can do it, but outside of that I'm not sure. And its not something listed in specs when you're browsing either. XD

    More than two montiors?

    I'm on an Asus gaming laptop with a Geforce GTX 260M and I'm looking to extend my desktop onto two additional screen. However it seems that Windows 7 limits you to two screens at a time. I was wondering if there is anyway around that?

    Power Supply, or Motherboard fried?

    No Unfortunately it doesn't turn on or provide power at all. Usually when the computer is off lights on USB devices attached still lit up. This no longer happens. Just another reason that leads me to believe the PS is completely shot. Pressing the power button does nothing.

    Power Supply, or Motherboard fried?

    Thank you for taking the time to go that thoroughly into detail. I was using a surge protector so maybe that saved some components. I will try both of you're suggestions. At this point I'm just hoping for minimal damage/data loss. Guess that's what I get from buying off the bargain rack...

    Power Supply, or Motherboard fried?

    So a few days ago, I was using my desktop when all of a sudden i heard a click sound from inside the case. Immediately upon clicking the computer turned off. I then smelled the lovely but horrifying smell of burning electronics, at which point I unplugged the computer. After I while I tried...

    ID3 Tags won't display in explorer

    Well I'm just gonna say now that I had to format and reinstall to fix it. You could try a sfc.exe /scannow to fix it.
