    Foggy LCD Monitor.?

    The foggy grey area is very much visible when the screen is displaying darker colors. But when the screen is fully white it's hard to spot them. The grey pattern has also expanded over the past few days.

  • Question for Samsung and LG monitor users. Is Magic Upscale and Super Resolution+ really worth it?

    Both LG and Samsung monitors highlight their video Upscaling feature called Magic Upscale and Super Resolution+ respectively in their specs sheet. I haven't seen other brands mention something like this.

    Both of these features upscale images and try to minimize quality loss for lower resolution videos.

    I Plan to get a new 1080p monitor and i do a lot of video watching. Mostly 720p videos. 

    So will this feature be useful for watching lower resolution videos or is this something that you prefer to keep if off at all times.

  • Question about GPU boost?

    Here's what i understood about GPU boost correct me if i am wrong

    Your video card overclocks to boost clock when it's below a certain temperature (say 80 degrees) and comes back to the base clock if it hits 80 degrees .

    So does this mean when playing a graphics intensive game half of the level i would be playing at say 50 FPS (With boost) and the other half at 40 FPS when the card reaches the temp limit and then again back to 50 FPS when card cools down again .Won't this give a bad experience ?

    Also isn't pushing the card to go upto 80 degrees a bad thing with the excessive heat and fan noise ?

  • Is this the sound of a dying hard drive?

    i placed my cell phone over the hard drive to record this so the sound wasn't as loud as it is in the audio clip,but i could definitely hear it from my chair .

    I recorded the sound when windows was frozen for about 5 minutes and then recovered automatically

    I have heard this sound before when windows is not able to boot properly, with only a black screen and other bad situations and not under normal working situations

    I also had issues before with my hdd and still do get it sometimes which i have posted here and this might be related to it

    Thanks in advance

  • Can you see the difference between 900p and 1080p while gaming ?

    assume you have eliminated jaggies with 4xAA turned on, with the same graphics settings for both resolutions

    if your answer is yes is the difference worth it (worth the money to reach that resolution) and do you have have to sit close up to notice the difference (Is it visible from couch distance)

    I'm asking this due to the ongoing resolutions wars between PS4 and Xbox 1

  • Command prompt window randomly flashing on the screen?

    A command prompt window is randomly flashing on my screen it opens and closes quickly so it is difficult to read what was written ,all i saw was one line (not sure maybe it was showing a file location like c:\windows\system32)

    also when i watch videos on media player classic player on fullscreen and when that windows flashes it causes my media player to come out of fullscreen with a message at the bottom " focus lost to c:\windows\system32\ntvdm.exe" ,maybe that is the culprit file but i can't delete it's since its used by windows somehow

    i opened my task manager and did not see ntvdm.exe running under proccess tab (details tab in windows 8) and i also checked the startup tab for suspicious programs and tried disabling everything besides audio driver and antivirus but still no luck.

    so kindly suggest any solutions

  • Can an overloaded hard drive cause this problem?

    i have a 160 GB hard drive with 4 partitions the prmary partition has has around 4GB of free space and the rest of them have around 2.5GB ,1.7GB and 3GB free space respectively

    the problem i am facing is whenever i indirectly restart the computer ,for instance when the system freezes and i have no option but to press the physical restart switch then after that i am not able to get into windows properly sometimes i get blue screen ,recurring restarts during the os boot etc.

    So to solve this problem i have to use chkdsk, sfc /scannow tools from command prompt in my Win 8 os disk

    currently i am running win 8 and i have restarted my pc indirectly several times before without any issues (Usually most of the time) so is my overloaded HDD causing this issue

  • how does a 64 bit os affect performance?

    i know about the RAM limitation which was overcome by 64bit os .But i'm confused about how 64 bit made applications to run faster ("if they really do run faster") and how dedicated 64 bit apps like opera 64bit and 64 bit flash player run faster, since they use less than 3.25 gb memory most of the times

    if possible tell me if 64bit os uses 64bit registers to speed up performance.

    to summarise please tell how 64 bit helped boost performance.
