Re: Getting a LG 60PZ850 tomorrow - anything to watch for?

There should be no problems with the sustain boards, the TV works fine (it better do, given what i'm paying for it!). The not-so-amazing brightness could simply be due to age, it is not dim, it's...

Re: Getting a LG 60PZ850 tomorrow - anything to watch for?

Re: bios dump elitebook 840 g3

Re: Recommened good cpu paste cheap

I use both MX-2 and MX-4 here. We use MX-2 in the shop, it is very good, but can be hard to spread in low temperatures. MX-4 is thinner and easier to work with, slightly poorer performance (1-3C...

Re: Let's talk about BGA Chip suppliers

Re: Nvidia Geforce 840m issue

Red/magenta pixels everywhere, without the system locking up or crashing is almost always an indication of a poorly seated or damaged LVDS cable, or, in some cases, a bad screen. Bad GPU will...

Re: Problem with KB6012 programming

It is likely due to other components being attached to the pins that also double as the data bus for programming. Since KB9012 does not have a dedicated programming port, the pins are multi function,...

Re: K52F REV 2.2 HDD don't turn on nor detected

If the drive stays turned off it means the communication between drive and mainboard is broken in some way. And yes, in laptops, sometimes drives will not spin if they have improper communication.

Re: Let's talk about BGA Chip suppliers

Some of their ebay prices are indeed inflated due to low stock and high demand. Otoh, like i explained, i have managed to get direct contact with their sales rep and was quoted $35 for 216-0810005. ;)

Re: BUDGET 4K graphics cards

Re: BUDGET 4K graphics cards

30Hz is only fine if you can get by with the laggy feeling of the mouse cursor. 60Hz is the minimum for me, unless it's just watching video/movies.

I see a lot of AMD bashing - the quality of...

Re: Let's talk about BGA Chip suppliers
