    Has anybody made a program to map mouse movement to keyboard macros? Figured maybe Joy2Key would do it but it can't.

    I just found a copy of Panzer Dragoon for PC, but using the arrow keys to aim is insufferable.

    I have 3 of these drives which are Ultra320 and this Ultra160 SCSI card. Now I know that they are compatible, but I have no idea on how to connect them. I have an LVD SCSI cable which is useless because it doesn't fit in the drive, but is there some sort of converter I could use?

    I got that once, and my friend gets it all of the time. Wondering what it could be, thinking steam maybe? Main thing me and my friend have in common with our computers.
    I don't have Steam on startup.

    Download Process Explorer. When you reboot and you get that message, leave it open. Open Process Explorer and click and hold the icon that looks like . Drag your mouse over that box and it'll show what process created that dialog.

    my bloody computer is driving me up the wall
    i've had to reinstall the (cracked) windows xp OS 3 times now (i'm buying a legal windows 7 os ASAP. i hate using anything that has the word cracked in it.)
    and i swear to god it's all because of this mobo.


    i've been trying to look at the settings to see what the parts are called (gfx card, ram, cpu, etc)
    but without the gfx card working (something wrong with the drivers) i can't seem to install this http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html which one of you guys said will tell me what my specs are.

    so, heres my very very VERY dumb question.
    how do i look at my specs?
    i've tried looking at the basic stuff and all i found is that the cpu is a AMD phenom 9500 quad core
    and it's running xp. is there anything i can type in the run bar.. thing that shows me the complete list?

    You could try dxdiag.

    Just press Winkey+r and type Dxdiag in the box.

    How would I go about installing Adobe Production Premium on an SSD for speedy video editing? I have an external drive so I can install the software as well as Office 2007, my Steam games and stuff.

    Is it safe to do so? Because I might render it to an internal 1TB drive. Or would that be too damaging?

    You can get pretty much any AM2/AM2+ mobo, though AM2 ones could need a BIOS flash to work with your CPU.

    Where do you live/what sites do you like using? If you tell us then I or someone else could find you a mobo.

    This should be fine if you want cheap as possible (AM2 is old and you really want to do a completely new build at some time soon).

    I did look around the various other UK sites that I use, but none of them stock any AM2/+ boards.

    It's pretty much impossible to find a new AM2/+ at retailers, he'd have to hit up eBay.

    I fucked my last mic somehow and now I need a new one. I VoIP alot and do some videos, it needs to be able to keep my voice clear and not pic up my shitty desktop fans. I have about $100 to spend, but keep in mind shit in Norway has like double the cost.

    That's why I said "pretty much" and not "completely".

    Edited:

    Not much point if he can spend $100 on one.

    Minor but annoying issue I need help with. Chrome seems to be rendering fonts in Facepunch with wrong kerning: (Top is Chrome 19.0.1084, bottom is Firefox 12.0)

    Notice how the i and l are almost glued to their neighbor letters in Chrome, while they have a nice amount of spacing in Firefox.
    Both browsers have fonts configured the same, and Chrome only seems to have kerning issues when the page is zoomed above 100% (Default zoom makes fonts too small to be readable on my screen)

    if im getting an i5, an hdd and an ssd, 8 gb ram, asus mobo, and a gtx 670, would a 750 watt psu from someone like cooler master or antec or seasonic be good if i wanted to add another gpu in the near future?

    Thats the one I had. Not getting than one again though, it felt cheap, it took up way too much ambient noise and positioning to pickup my voice was a bitch.

    ModMic is the only mic
    Thanks, I'll look into it. Never heard of it before but it seems great.

    A good quality 750W ought to be able to, yes.
    Go for Seasonic or XFX if possible.
    An 850W might be safer though.

    sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but within the last few months whenever I try to upload something my router restarts itself, is this an issue with my computer and firewalls or something or just the fault of my router or something else?

    Why would you recommend a 850W psu to someone getting a small die power efficient CPU and GPU?

    Fault of the router most likely. Could be heat and after years of use it just wears out. This is what happened to my old WGT624v3. I upgraded to a RT-56U and it races now.

    Depends on the computer, I'd take out all the harddrives, PCI cards, and the CPU cooler. All those are sensative and or are heavy and can sway. Anything else is either solid state or is mounted firmly to the case.

    Place all the things you took out into antistatic bags and pack them in peanuts or into those airbags. The case will probably be fine wrapped in moving blankets and put into a firm place where it can't move. Any time an object moves it's basically gaining momemtum and gaining energy, all that energy will be release in the form of a dent or a breakage when it finally has to stop as it hits something. You reduce the risk of anything breaking by keeping the object from attaining that level of energy, a.k.a. strap it down.
