I cleaned up that displayfusion stuff and clean booted, no crashes yet. Only had ~5 programs to disable, too. Could just be luck, but it's been awhile since it's gone this long without crashing.

MPC has stopped working. It just will not launch.
Okay, it will launch. It hangs in the process tree for like 5 seconds in Task Manager and then instantly closes. Task Manager also says that I'm running at a CPU Usage of ~14% whenever I try to launch it, so that shouldn't really be it. I've tried uninstalling MPC and reinstalling, and I've ran a complete deep scan with Avast! a few times and tried ADWCleaner just to absolutely make sure there's nothing malicious going on, and neither have found anything.
What do I do?
>> No. 411 [Edit]
>>2603

once opened, what does it's memory consumption do before it closes itself (task manager should show this info)?
Does this happen when you open a specific video file, or for all of them?
Have you tried uninstalling the entire combined community codec pack, or did you only uninstall the MPC video player?
Does this same thing happen when you open those same video files with another video player, such as VLC or WMP11?
>> No. 412 [Edit]

>once opened, what does it's memory consumption do before it closes itself
It sticks at 4,800-something. Doesn't change at all.

>Does this happen when you open a specific video file, or for all of them?
It does that with every file, as well as just opening it from the .exe.

>Have you tried uninstalling the entire combined community codec pack, or did you only uninstall the MPC video player?
I just uninstalled the video player itself, I'm going to go try uninstalling everything right now.

>Does this same thing happen when you open those same video files with another video player, such as VLC or WMP11?
Every file opens just fine in WMP.

It's also worth noting that this happened out of nowhere. A few days before this all happened, everything was working fine, and then the next day it just suddenly broke.

I just tried uninstalling and reinstalling everything using the nyaa.eu guide and I got to the part where it said to open MPC-HC to uncheck "auto-load subtitles" and MPC wouldn't open even after following the directions to a tee.

so even after uninstalling the program, rebooting the comp, and installing fresh, in that exact order, the problem is not fixed?

When you open the folder containing mpc and it's .dlls, do the file sizes match with the pic of mine?

there are different versions of mpc-hc, and with the new (~1 year ago) feature of 'auto-update', I wouldn't be surprised if one of the "new and stable" versions that mpc-hc updated itself to was the problem.

other things to try:
update video card drivers and see if it works then.
if you're using the latest drivers, rollback to a previous version of the video driver and see if that changes anything.

oh, and don't forget to look at the forums. Be sure to read through the gigantic sticky of common problems before making a new post though.

Been wanting to build a new pc for a while now. Thought it'd be good to get a second opinion or two on the part list since this would be my first time building my own pc. Some pricy stuff I know but I don't mind saving up for em. I'm behind my pc almost all day everyday anyway so might as well get something decent.

seconding >>1289
get a 128gb SSD, and then a few 2-3 TB storage drives. All you need on the SSD is an OS and a limited set of core programs.

Also, you are getting overclocked RAM, but I am highly skeptical of your cheap MOBO supporting it. You may have to do some digging through the MSI website or perhaps give customer service a call to see whether or not it is supported; in either case, I recommend spending an extra bit of money and getting an ASUS motherboard.

Lastly, your case may need some work....
Especially if you plan on using a gigantic cooler. which may not physically fit inside the case, also the torque it will put on your mobo while the case is vertical may cause issues over time.
I recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119265&cm_re=coolmaster_case-_-11-119-265-_-Product

You will have plenty of room to put in new things, such as secondary graphics cards and have a lot more room for your fans to keep everything nice and cool.

also, be sure to check amazon as well while searching. They tend to be slightly cheaper, and if you put the whole computer into one order, chances are shipping will be free and get to you quicker.
>> No. 1292 [Edit]
>>1291
Thanks for the reply. As mentioned here >>1290 I have plenty of storage.
Another cpu fan I considered was this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835214041
I'm mostly just using newegg as reference and do plan on shopping around once I start buying parts. As I mentioned I already bought a case after doing a lot of shopping around for a design that I liked, which I got off amazon while it was on sale.
http://www.raidmax.com/super-helios.html

I was admittedly a bit concerned about the mobo, took a look at some asus boards and came across this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131851
Think that'd be good enough?
>> No. 1293 [Edit]
>>1292
Looks solid.
Note that the EVO version of that motherboard is meant for RAID configurations, but if you don't bother with RAID (and with SSDs and SATA HDDS, RAID set ups are fairly obsolete for most enthusiast users so I wouldn't recommend bothering with RAID at all) the PRO is the one I would recommend of the two.
>> No. 1294 [Edit]
>>1293
Thanks, yeah I can't really see myself doing a RAID set up. Having my os on a single SSD is good enough for me.
>> No. 1297 [Edit]
Yeah don't skimp on the mobo, but don't go full bling either. Any reason for getting an amd cpu? I'd just grab a midrange Intel core i5, doesn't have to be latest gen. With that you won't need as big a cooler, for one. More importantly I implore you to go for a gtx 970 instead. The sacrifice in performance is insignificant, and you'll save a lot of money. You can also go cheaper on the ram, as long as the brand is decent - e.g. kingston, corsair. I think having a 250gb ssd is fine if you plan on having more than a few games installed at any given time. PSU is fine, just about anything corsair and seasonic goes. About the prospect of sli: my recommendation is to just upgrade to a new gen card when the time comes, and sell your old card. With this you won't need that high wattage on your psu.

The trick with selecting components is knowing what brands to get, how to balance your budget between the various components, and what kinds of specs to prioritize. More watts, cores and hertz isn't always better. Personally I value system stability very highly. I also implore you to disregard color matching on internal components, focus on price and quality.

Make sure everything will fit inside your case, check the specified measurements on all ends.
>> No. 1299 [Edit]
>>1288
I'm gonna have to butt in and suggest you go with an intel cpu. I say this because you seem to be selecting high end expensive parts, but you would probably be better of spending your money on an i5 or something since you're going all out as I can see. Not that FXs are bad, I actually have one myself, but I was looking for something cheaper. You're limiting yourself so that you have a not as good performing processor on an older platform, as those cpus came out a few years ago.
>> No. 1302 [Edit]
>>1297 >>1299
>Any reason for getting an amd cpu?
I've currently got an amd quad core in my system, guess it's mostly the familiarity.
I wanted to get a good quality cpu since some emulators (mainly pcsx2) seem to be very cpu demanding.
That said I have been hearing lately that intel cpus are better for gaming, but when looking at intel I found that something like the i7-4790K would only be a minor improvement over the FX-8350, but at nearly twice the cost.
An i5-4690K after looking into it seems more reasonable though.
I may have to rethink the cpu here, and as such what mobo to go with.

>I also implore you to disregard color matching on internal components
I get where you're coming from here. Call me weird but I'd like to have something I could feel proud of, and I can be kinda anal about having stuff match. I mean granted I have no friends to show the thing off to but it'd still be nice to have something cool looking sitting here next to me all the time. Like how figs don't serve any practical purpose but are nice to look at. I don't think it'd be that much of an issue anyway, tons of stuff out there comes in multiple colors to choose from. Even with grapicscards I doubt I'd be going with a reference model so there'd be plenty of aftermarket gpus to pick from in all styles. Besides, tons of stuff out there comes in blue anyways. My current system on the otherhand is something of a black and white theme, and for some reason white components aren't very common out there, not as much as red, blue, and green.

>my recommendation is to just upgrade to a new gen card when the time comes, and sell your old card. With this you won't need that high wattage on your psu.
As mentioned I'd be getting a single card, I just wanna keep the option open is all then see how things go latter down the line.

Thanks again for the responses.

>As mentioned I'd be getting a single card, I just wanna keep the option open is all then see how things go latter down the line.
Sure, nothing wrong with that. Should you however at some point consider adding another card, just toss it out of the window. It's such a hassle.

>I may have to rethink the cpu here, and as such what mobo to go with.
Good. I made the mistake of upgrading an AMD cpu because I already had an AMD cpu. It ended up with side-grading to Intel. Generally the intel chipset mobo's are also of higher quality, and with greater availability. In conclusion you have to look at the product, and not the brand, when it comes to cpu's and gpu's. It just so happens that Intel and Nvidia has had the better options lately.

Good luck, hit us up again whenever.

Could anyone help me out with a problem I'm having here? I've spent countless hours searching online but can't find much on this problem.

For whatever reason random parts of random files will show up as corrupted on my 64gb SD card when connected to my x220t. When connected to my desktop everything on the card is fine. I say it's random because the corruption jumps around every time I remove the sd card and put it back in. For example, if I play a video off the card it'll glitch out at 5:34 for example, and will glitch out at 5:34 even if I close the video and try again, but if I remove the card and play it again it might glitch out at 4:23 or 6:17 or so on.
windows (8.1) shows that there are no errors when scanning the card.
In my searches it seems people with the same laptop had a card reader that didn't work at all or worked fine, but nothing between like this.

Now then, I've tried installing three different drivers so far.
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS032126
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS014960
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/ds038445

and even tried a bios update.
http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS018805

So far none of this has fixed the issue.
I've also suspected that it may be due to the size of the card, since I've test a 4gb sd card on this laptop with the same source files and they showed up fine. Figured maybe it was due to the card being exfat and not fat32, so I did a complete format with windows, then again with a utility into fat32.

I'm really at wits end with this here and any help would be greatly appreciated.
As a last resort I think I might uninstall windows 8.1 and just go with win7 since that's what the laptop originally had on it (bought it used without a hdd, but it's got the win7 sticker)
>> No. 1320 [Edit]
>>1319
maybe you could try formatting the card to ntfs? not sure but it may be worth a try at least

also about what you said about switching to windows 7: even if you do it might not work since it could be a hardware problem and not a driver problem, maybe.

I have a starry sky background on my laptop too!

Does anyone have experience using rsync for backups? I plan on using it to transfer everything from one drive to another (smaller) one in a few days once it arrives. Before I have used clonezilla but only when the drive I am cloning to is larger than the original, and I'm pretty sure it doesn't work when the original is larger. right?

I found out what the problem was and was able to fix it. After doing more research I found the problems I was having were similar to those found in dying SD cards and bootlegs. I contacted the seller and explained the situation, they sent me a similar but different replacement card. The card looked never used (no marks on the connectors) but came without packaging. It too had very similar problems but not as severe, and for some reason the data error would jump around without restarting/unplugging. Just closing the viewer/player and opening it again would make the error jump to a new spot. I bought a 128 PNY SD card from a different source and so far it works flawlessly. I think the other seller was handing out bootlegs after all. I have no clue why those cards worked fine on my pc but whatever.

I hear some ebay bootleg drives are hacked to report higher storage then they actually have the capacity for, and because of that they have data corruption issues. Maybe that's what the issue was with your drive.

It took a long time, but I finally got my system built.
I think I started gathering parts in early April of 2015, had the psu and mobo sitting around for months. Wasn't till relatively recently that I just said fuck it and got the rest of the components.
It's running a i7-4790k, gtx970, 16gbddr3, with two 250gb Samsung ssd.

This was a ground up build as almost everything was obsolete on my old system. I thought I could at least reuse the ram but the current mobo doesn't support ddr2. only thing I was able to take was the hard drive.
Ended up tossing a spare hard drive in my old system from a busted laptop and figure I'll use it in the living room for mulimedia.

I recently changed laptop. I meant to get a Lenovo Y50, but somehow fucked up real good and got a Y510p instead. The main difference is that I got a GT755m instead of a GTX860m or superior. I'm still trying to mend it, finding someone nearby to arrange some mutually beneficial deal.

Not a real problem here, just kinda looking for advice or recommendations.
The 1tb HDD I used primary for music recently took a shit on me (but I can still get data off if I play with the power cable). I was able to get a 4tb HDD at a decent price, but really don't need that much space for just music. My 3tb HDD I use for videos is practically full, same for my 2tb used for games.
My question is this. would it be a dumb move to transfer all the data from my 3tb drive to my new 4tb drive then transfer all the data from my 2tb to my 3tb and use the 2tb for music? or should I just leave them alone and used the 4tb not only for music but also as overflow for videos and games? Thanks in advance.
>> No. 1402 [Edit]
>>1401
I don't see anything wrong with doing a big move like that, it's nice to be organized. The real question is how patient are you? If you're willing to spend, like, literally a day or two transferring terabytes of information from drive to drive, then go ahead. Just be aware it might impact performance of your computer a little.
>> No. 1403 [Edit]

Alright cool. My real concern was putting undo stress on the drives and maybe having some issues with the data that's been sitting there for years, but I guess I'm probably just over thinking it.
>> No. 1404 [Edit]
>>1401

your idea would be the most realistic method of keeping everything together.

I would recommend it over the lazy way of having chunks of everything overflowing everywhere, especially if you plan on actually watching/playing any of the 5 TB stuff you downloaded a couple years down the line and not need to do a lot of hunting.

alternatively, you can go through and delete all the crap you won't watch again or already played or won't get to playing anytime within the next few years. The longer you wait, the worse the problem gets.

I was able to pick up a modem for like $5 from a yardsale ( Netgear CG3000D ) and it has built in wifi. I've been using a isp provided modem and a wifi router up till now. With this new device is there any reason to still use a separate router? I've heard there can be security issues with using just a modem alone.

>>1414

the problem isn't so much whether the modem and router are one device or two, it's that ISPs do some really shady shit with the "built in" router.

They use it to log and keep track of a good amount of your parametric data (what domains/IPs you visit often, how much in total you upload/download) from YOU, as well as being the throttle for making sure you only get as much bandwidth as you pay for. Also, if your internet company is also in the cell phone business, your router may be a "free-wifi" point for anybody near by with their service unless you wrap the antenna in tin foil. Another always-on thing that was built into the router.

Then there's the additional security issues that they go out of their way to build into the routers. They generally have multiple backdoors built into them, which makes things easy to fix when a dumbass locks himself out of the router, but it presents a very significant security issue if the codes ever get leaked. Note that those backdoors will generally work so long as the router is plugged in, remote on/off and settings flashing through the cable and through the wireless (even when the wireless is set to off) are the ones I've had personal experience with, but I wouldn't doubt more sinister ones existing.

Oh, and you physically can not bypass the built in router to hook up to the modem, so an additional router really doesn't do anything aside from use as a hub for additional Ethernet cable outlets to the internet.

On the bright side, the ISPs generally don't cheap out when it comes to hardware specs for the built in routers. Most of them are fairly decent, or would be if it wasn't for the issues listed.
