Hardware / Sound and internet keep cutting out
« Last post by kiwi_007 on September 14, 2018, 04:57:25 PM »
Hi I am running Windows 10 on P8Z77_v pro motherboard with i5 3570 3.4 Hz CPU, Geforce GTX 950 DDR5 video card, sound blaster Audigy Fx sound card, Realtek PCI GbE Family Controller network card with 2 stick of DDR3 2GB 667MHz and 1 stick of DDR3 4GB 800MHz ram
My problem started with my sound, with headphones, when I turn the sound up to around 48% it would get distorted so I got the sound blaster sound card. Now when I play world of tanks or play Sounds preview from Sound blaster control panel my sound cuts out until I run sound troubleshoot and it says, "Turning off audio enhancements may fix it", so I have, it then says that "the audio format not set as default and it has fix this problem",  I also updated drivers to the latest, turning off power save and none of these have worked, I am not sure how to stop this happening. I also have had my internet drop out and reconnect I am using cat6 cable. Any help would be very welcome

Sorry for the massive delay in this reply (it's been a bit hectic lately).

As it turns out all of the above is true. The licences have been uninstalled and the drive itself has had it.

It won't read DVD's, Blu-rays have slow read times but I think it still does CD's :p
Hardware / Re: Dynamic Disk

From a Google search:
Converting basic disks to dynamic disks can help achieve improved performance in your Windows OS. However, there are compatibility restrictions you should be aware of before diving into this conversion process.
The link requires registration.
In brief, he  makes these points:
1. Can not downgrade the OS
2. Do not use with multi-boot
3. Not for removable storage.
4. Possible legacy software issues.
The last point is not covered other than to state there is an issue with the FAT. If yu have a utility program that wants to modify the FAT, it will fail.
That is the limit of what I have found.

Off topic / Titanium Dioxide Lawsuit
« Last post by Geek-9pm on September 14, 2018, 10:26:19 AM »
This is not news. If you are shopping for a new printer you may find a warning about the compound mentioned in the title of this post.
Here in California, back in 2015, a lawyer made a case that gives gives the chemical a bad name.

This is about Titanium Dioxide.

Here is a link about that lawyer:
In a July 10, 2015 order, an Alameda County Superior Court judge found in favor of defendants in a Proposition 65 lawsuit alleging exposures to titanium dioxide in cosmetic products.  The defendants successfully challenged the plaintiff’s 60-day notice based on admissions made by the plaintiff that it had not conducted any testing to confirm that the listed chemical was present in each product.

Here is a quick read:
...Generally, it is sourced from ilmenite, rutile and anatase. It has a wide range of applications, including paint, sunscreen and food coloring. When used as a food coloring, it has E number E171. World production in 2014 exceeded 9 million metric tons.[4][5][6] It has been estimated that titanium dioxide is used in two-thirds of all pigments, and the oxide has been valued at $13.2 billion.[7]
So it's used in pigments.  :o
The explains why inkjet printers get the Prop. 65 warning.

Now look at this Amazon link:
California Proposition 65 Warning Labels

So if you sell anything in California with  that compound, you have label it!  :o

Gag me with a spoon!   ::)

Hardware / Dynamic Disk
« Last post by plantagenet on September 14, 2018, 08:17:53 AM »
Can a dynamic disk prevent software installing properly?

I have a laptop and a Desktop PC both with W10. The software installed perfectly on the laptop but dropped out on the PC right before it would have displayed the Installation Complete box.

The software is downloaded from the provider's website. I have tried disabling the AV (McAfee) but it makes no difference. It has also installed successfully on a notebook running W8.1.

The only difference in the configuration is that the Desktop System drive is on a Dynamic disk whereas it is on a Basic disk on the laptop.

I'd prefer not to have to go back to a clean implementation of Windows. I have looked at software that will convert a dynamic disk to basic but the feedback does inspire much confidence.

Thanks for any help.
