Does anyone have any possible solutions for this dilemma?

 

I have 3 identical Samsung 32" curved monitors. All running the same wallpaper, WB, etc. All hooked to same graphics card, all HDMI. (One is DP to HDMI).

 

The right and left screens look normal. The center has a pinkish cast/tint to it. Only see it on light wallpapers/windows, notepad, etc.

All 3 have been reset to factory defaults.

Hey there, Multiplicity Devs.

I have a triple boot system on the other end of the house from my main rig. I know this isn't currently possible, but is there any way it could be in the future?

 

I'd like to be able to reboot from one OS to another via KVM. But, of course, Multi. isn't loaded yet when I see the OS choice screen.

 

Is it even in the realm of possibility for a future version?

Hey guys. Who is into VR?

 

I recently set up 2 rigs for VR. One with Oculus Rift, the other with the HTC Vive.

 

I'd be interested in any talk, info, discussion on either system, or maybe any other options for VR.

 

Pros, cons, what have you.  Got anything to say?

I have a PC that was running a triple boot setup just a few days ago. All was well. Was a tri boot system for close to a year now, no problems.

It has an Intel SSD and 2 hard drives.

I decided to lose the Windows 7, and Windows 8.1 and do a fresh install of Windows 10.

Nothing else added, at all.

Now it won't shut down when I hit the shutdown button.

The screen goes black, but the fans and leds keep running. Any ideas as to what could be wrong?

I will likely get one of these!

 

It makes any screen a touchscreen. Awesome, check it out!  Click the external link.

 

Sadly, it only goes up to 15.3 inches.

Guys, do you think I should bother putting an SSD I have laying around into a laptop with only a 1.3 ghz dual core processor and 4 GB ram?

 

Is it worth it?

I plan to sell the laptop.

Guys, I just learned something the hard way that some of you may have already known. Because of it, I will be doing a factory reset on my laptop back to Windows 8.1 from Windows 10.

 

Here's what happened:

I upgraded my brand new Dell laptop to Windows 10. Then, stupidly, I chose the option in Windows Updates Advanced Options to opt in to Insider Builds.

 

Mistake. It "upgraded" me to Insider build 10532 which put a watermark on my screen, and what's worse, when ...

Guys, I can't believe this, but I want to tell you what happened to me.

 

I recently bought a PC that has UEFI BIOS, but also has Windows 8.1 installed in UEFI mode.

Tried to create a new partition, in order to dual boot with 7. All hell broke loose.

Before partitioning, I of course, made an image backup.  Proceeded to make the partition, only to find that I couldn't boot up after.

Some error about the needed drive wasn't connected or available.

So, I trie...

Hey there Trek fans! I discovered this cool app based on LCARS I thought you guys might like.

It does some cool things, I wish it did more, but it is nifty.

Just wanted to share. Check my short video. It has LCARS sounds, but they didn't make it to the vid, for some reason.

It can be obtained in the Microsoft Store.

Hey computer users. I have a problem, was wondering if anyone else is seeing it, or has any suggestions? Only happens at WC, btw.

 

When on WinCustomize forums, you can mouse over a topic and get a small preview of that topic, well, mine aren't going away.

I have to close IE 11 and reopen it to get rid of it.   Windows 8.1 MCE 64 bit.

Well, first thing I noticed on Windows 8.1 is the lack of a WEI score.

 

So, Wiz and I naturally googled and found this.

 

Thought I'd post it in case you guys didn't know.

Ok guys, I have been dual booting Windows 7 and Windows 8 ever since last October when I bought Windows 8.

So far, 7 has been my default OS, with 8 just being a toy/learning tool, mainly.

I am about sure that I want to make 8 my new default OS.

 

Ok, now, both OSes are currently installed on SSDs. 7 on a 256 GB SSD, 8 on a 120 GB SSD.

Naturally, I'll want to have my default OS on the larger/faster drive, I guess. I have good disc images of both drives.

So, in swapping ...
