      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. The fan on my friend's HIS Radeon 6790 went bad. Started making a terrible noise (loud enough to be extremely obnoxious under any type of load). We opened it up and lubricated it, but it's not going away. Shame because the card still works great. I know its ancient and unlikely but I'm trying to find away for her because she doesn't really have a way to buy a new card (she's autistic and disabled, doesn't have a regular income), but does anyone know of any good options? Maybe a replacement cooler that could be had cheaply? It seemed someone was selling some fans from this specific model on ebay but not any on there now (and those sellers are not responding to messages).
  2. They are distinct brands and they wanted to make sure fans of one knew that this was a product in that brand's line.
  3. Since windows 8 there hasn't been a performance advantage to reformatting
  4. Just keep trying if it says failed, it's the server getting hammered. Mine's downloading now
  5. This article suggests clearing your updates folder manually as well: http://venturebeat.com/2015/07/28/how-to-force-windows-to-start-downloading-the-windows-10-update-files/ It's working for some but also the Windows Update Window will say "Update were installed: Today at X:XX XM (Failed)
  6. Before you begin, ensure Windows Update can download and install updates automatically. Not sure how to do that? Here's how: Turn automatic updating on or off Open Windows Update by swiping in from the right edge of the screen (or, if you're using a mouse, pointing to the lower-right corner of the screen and moving the mouse pointer up), tapping or clicking Settings, tapping or clicking Change PC settings, and then tapping or clicking Update and recovery. Tap or click Choose how updates get installed. Under Important updates, choose the option that you want. Under Recommended updates, select the Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates check box. Under Microsoft Update, select the Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows check box, and then tap or click Apply. Once automatic updates are enabled, launch Command Prompt in Administrator mode and enter the following command: wuauclt.exe/updatenow. That should trigger the Windows 10 download.

  7. thank you again wade
  8. http://www.gofundme.com/q7bbbtk Thanks
  9. I just got out of a 14 day stay in a psychiatric hospital. Shit was almost over for me. Now they've got me on so many drugs I probably won't be able to keep my job (can't be on them around the machinery). My friend put up a gofundme to help me out but I won't post it unless anyone asks me to. I really just want to see if anyone else on the PC boards knows this battle.
  10. I'm never going to be put off by he amount of space a game takes up
  11. Sorry been at work all day. I'm a picker in an amazon warehouse so not really able to do anything till I get home. I'll get at you in a minute with my choice.

  13. Most people see it as extremely bloaty but if you don't have any problems with it don't worry about switching.
