    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    My gaming PC is in my living room, so I use a controller, which is unfortunate because I find I can't compete in shooters anymore because the keyboard / mouse people have the advantage. At this stage in my life I like relaxing on the sofa with a controller, though.
  3. As Dave mentioned I use an extended cable that runs from the back usb port, sometimes I will move it up or down left or right and the d-link starts blinking and then connects, the radius for seeing the modem is good, it see's my neighbors modems to, I don't know why I use the old one instead of my new ones, I guess it is just the hard love between us two

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    Do you guys use the mouse and keyboard or controller when playing games on PC, I mainly use the keyboard but with PS4 and XBOX I have to use the controller, I always over correct and before I know it I turn my back and get creamed because the bad guys that were in front of me are now behind me

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    Yeah, I'm going to pick it up. I just finished the second play through of Resident Evil 2 so I'm ready to move onto something else.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    I received the game The Evil Within 2 yesterday and installed it on Steam, about 27 Gigs, I am liking it very much, playing in casual mode (beginners mode) the voice of the main character sounds a lot like Alan Wake and the game does remind me of some others combined, work benches to upgrade weapons, safe houses, grabbing items like plants to combine for health, doing stealth kills etc...I may be up till the wee hours of morning playing so far for me I give this a 10 for the price and game play, if you got $9.99 buy it on Amazon while it is cheap for now.

    Add 2nd Internal Hard Drive

    Hi, I think you'll be looking for something like this SATA Power Cable Splitter and it will connect near where the original power cable connects to the first hard drive. The hard drive should have a data cable and a power cable attached. This will split the power cable, unless Dell has done something funky on the hard drive end.
  11. Where would I plug this splitter into the Motherboard to acquire power? It looks like the existing line has a male plug different that the one you showed in your link. Perhaps you noticed I an a novice in all this! Here is a Photo of the Motherboard where the HD Power Line is plugged. Since the existing line splits between the Optical Drive and the HD this might be a situation where a 3-way splitter may be needed.

    Add 2nd Internal Hard Drive

    As long as you are not pulling any real additional power from it you should be ok. SATA HDDs dont pull much wattage if that is all the extra you will be putting on that PSU.
  13. It was more a Brain-ographical error than typo . . . 290v is correct. No aftermarket PSU. I don't believe I'll have a power dilemma running this additional drive. Do you? I thought a splitter might be the best course of action, but two heads are better than one.

    Add 2nd Internal Hard Drive

    Maybe there was a typo but I'm seeing this PC came with a 290W stock PSU. I think there are only three cables that come from that PSU, one to the motherboard, one to the SATA HDD, and one to the optical drive. You could steal the one from the optical drive if you are not going to use it. Is there an aftermarket PSU installed? Even with the 290 you can probably get away with this by stealing the cable going to the first HDD: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C2TJ82P/ref=sspa_dk_detail_5?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07C2TJ82P&pd_rd_w=bAQWU&pf_rd_p=2bd81721-c115-4b8d-93a3-2ecd17466ded&pd_rd_wg=YqW1b&pf_rd_r=4VK0K2Y398MVMPBABB9N&pd_rd_r=ee3cbf0b-33bb-11e9-b00f-bf29e400fc02 If you have any extra components installed like an aftermarket GPU you will likely need a beefier PSU.
  15. I just bought a Dell Inspiron 3670 Desktop (Tower). It has a 931GB Western Digital WDC WD10EZEX-75WN4A0 (SATA) Internal Drive. I also bought a 4T WD Blue Internal Drive to add to this system. Of course, I need a Data Cable (which I have) and a Power Cable (which I do not have). Here is my question; What type of power cable do I need to purchase? Of course, the proper technical name will inure I get the proper item. I suppose I could use a SATA Power Splitter Line. The Power Supply is rated at 960. Also, there is no pre-existing mount for an additional internal drive so I intend to simply set the additional drive on top of the existing drive which sets on the bottom of the case. I will place a simple vibration resistant pad between the two. If you're an Amazon User any link to the correct item would be appreciated.
  16. We all want a simple DIY OTA TV recording solution. Watching television over the air is nothing new–people have been doing it for decades. Having the ability to bring a high definition signal into your home, record it and–in some cases–remove commercials, is definitely a game-changer in this space. The era of streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and YouTube TV, have made cord-cutting virtually painless, as viewers can dump their pricey cable bundles and cable box rentals for cheaper streaming television services. But the questions has always been, what do I do about my local channels? Read the full post on Simple DIY OTA TV Recording and Viewing Options

    Why me????

    Yes. Set both monitors to VGA if they are set to automatic. If that doesn't help, I'd replace all of the cables / adapters if you have spares.

    Just ranting

    Ah, come on, be a mate and go for it.
  19. kemperhills

    Why me????

    Thanks Dave, but both monitors have VGA cables and one cable has a DVI /VGA adapter to connect the VGA cable to the motherboard. Same procedure?
  20. Dave@Bytes

    Why me????

    Use the input selector on the monitor with the VGA attached and set the monitor's input to VGA. Do the same for the DVI monitor. Most monitors are set to Auto detect the signal coming from the PC. If you tell the monitor to specifically look for the VGA cable (and the DVI cable on the other monitor) it might recognize both on startup.

    Why me????

    Thanks Dave, but zip, right over the old head. Never done anything concerning ports or setting them. Explain please. I see another learning opportunity coming my way.
  22. roadrage

    Why me????

    I just want to add this in as well, do you have automatic updates for Windows from MS, turn it off because Windows updates from MS can update what they think you need and this has caused problems...especially in the driver department.
  23. Dave@Bytes

    More just talking.

    Next time that happens, try booting into safe mode--you should have a generic crappy screen, but it should at least enable you to reinstall the driver. And to answer your original question, yes, I do stupid stuff all the time with computers....that's how you learn
  24. Dave@Bytes

    Why me????

    I should work, you're right. Weird things can happen with cables and ports. If the monitor inputs are set to AUTO detect, maybe specify VGA for the vga cable and dvi for the dvi cable. Maybe the auto detect option is getting confused. If that doesn't work, try different cables.
  25. kemperhills

    Why me????

    Thanks guys, but, curiosity killed the cat, you know; I have used this set up for years with no problems, why now. My other computer has an Asus F2A55-M LK board and I have never had any problems like this. No Intel board has ever had a problem like this. Just asking because when I get something on my mind it drives me bonkers until I find the answer. Cheers
  26. roadrage

    Why me????

    Yeah I know, you are the baddest boy here Hey let me do some research as Dave is doing... but me think they may be conflicting with each other and that's why sometimes it works and then does not, when you have two monitors hooked up on different ports, the VGA and DVI, Windows may freak out because it does not know which one to use so you get a blank screen on boot-up, on the other hand if you have Windows up and then do the dual monitors it does work, on re-boot it has to determine which port to acquire first, this may be the key to your solution. I am a little rusty but we are heading in the right direction, hope Dave has got it figured out before me, Dave please help me so I can help kemp

    Uhm...are you referring to me...in your dreams buddy
  28. kemperhills

    Why me????

    My bad roadrage, you are correct. One monitor is connected VGA, the other is connected DVI.
