Windows 10 and 11 / I'm not able to log onto the internet
« Last post by JackCatalano on October 17, 2021, 08:50:50 PM »
I wasn't able to log onto the internet. I tried opening google chrome but it wasn't there. I tried typing google chrome in my search box and nothing would show up. I tried Internet Explorer and typed it in the search box and nothing would show up. I couldn't log into IE, Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. Can somebody please tell me what's wrong?

Hardware / Re: Can Motherboards or CPUs cause SSL Errors?
« Last post by fishpaste on October 17, 2021, 01:06:08 AM »
The errors suggest out-dated OpenSSL libs being used by the affected programs.

The errors are complaining about errors working with the certificate data, as OpenSSL attempts to verify it. They are very low-level errors, too, which makes them unusual. From your original post I expected the errors were errors within the browser about the certificate not being valid, but it seems like it isn't even getting that far and is failing outright while trying to work with the certificate data.

Everything I can find about the errors suggest it's a rather low-level error. The only relationship I can fathom between the cryptography functions and the motherboard/CPU is if the system in question has a TPM and some cryptography functions attempt to use it, but it doesn't work properly or as expected, but I can't find anything about that. You could check the BIOS settings and disable TPM if present and see if the issues go away just to eliminate  that as a cause. Basically from what I can find, whether OpenSSL will or will not use a TPM depends on certain 'engines" being installed and those engines are enabled by the programs using OpenSSL, which could explain why you are getting different behaviour on the affected machine.

Side Note: if memory serves, Linux will always store time in the CMOS in UTC, and adjusts it for the time zone, which is probably why what you were seeing was a few hours off.

I checked and don't see anything about TPM in the BIOS and when I grep dmesg it says TPM not found.

Hardware / Corsair Fan Flickering Problem
« Last post by berwea on October 16, 2021, 08:00:42 PM »
Hi,

I have 3 fans from Corsair, the LL RGB Fan series to be specific. I have had the problem that the rgb on these are flickering and that the iCUE software doesnt work. I have been in contact with support but all they have told me is to delete other softwares that may interfere. This hasnt worked and now they sent me a replacement that I just installed without any success. The light is flickering and sometimes shuts off, I have tried switching the usb connection that I use but that didnt work either, so now I dont know what to do.

I have a feeling this is somewhere in the hardware because when I hit the computer the light sometimes go to the right color, like they got a connection, and sometimes shuts off or goes into this random color shifting thats not what I had selected in the software program.

I have a gigabyte b450m ds3h if thats to any help.

Would be very grateful for any help!

Thanks in advance for your help.

Computer software / Re: put music onto labtop
« Last post by SuperDave on October 16, 2021, 04:17:40 PM »
First, you will need to put some songs on your laptop. You can do this by downloading MP3's from different sites some free and others you may have to pay. You can also rip some music from CD's to your laptop. Once you have the music it's just a matter of burning them to CD's.

Update: After setting the time correct in the BIOS and running hwclock in Linux, it does report the correct time, date, and timezone. So I don't think incorrect time and date is the problem.

Is the time and date correct on the PC ? ?

It is set right in the OS but it does seem a few hours off in the BIOS. Weird thing is I can't seem to change it. If I set it to the correct hour and reboot it goes back to being a few hours off. I don't think it's a battery problem because if I set the right hour and then boot without power cycling the machine I still get the SSL errors.

You're not supposed to download it. You're supposed to run the scanner online.
