Alright so I think I fucked up
I have a blue yeti mic, pic related is the cable. It's been plugged in for more than a few weeks no problem, however today while I was downloading Visual studio a USB power surge occurred, or at least that's what the notification said. Now when it's plugged in it somehow turns off my keyboard and my mouse.
I know the USB is fine, as I tested it, but I don't know if the cable is fried or the mic itself.

Restart the system and try a different USB port. Then try again. It might also be worth noting that my Blue Yeti has done odd things with cheap USB cables before (storage static iirc).

I tried all of the ports, no luck.
Even before I fully insert the cable, both the mouse and keyboard shit themselves. It happens even when the cable isn't connected to the mic.
It is the same cable the mic was packaged with, if it helps any.
Is it possible it has a static charge? And how would I discharge it?

Would /g/ approve of tagspaces?
http://www.tagspaces.org/
It claims to be a file tagging program that inputs the tags in file names. (e.g.: img_093 [laughing_girls sakura sakurafish everyday].jpg)

I want to use it to organize ALL my files, especially reaction images. However, I want to use it in conjunction with with HappyPanda and HydrusNetwork - would that be possible?

I fear just trying it because I already organize all my files by file name, so I would basically have to destroy my existing organization structure.
In addition to that, I fear that filenames are much too short for many tags. I love tagging, I want to have a gajillion tags.
I also fear that it might stop being developed on - it seems to be FOSS, though. Does that make it much more likely to stay updated?
Lastly, at some point I want to transition from Windows to some Linux distribution. It claims to be cross-platform. Would it really be unproblematic?

So I'm running a gtx 960, with the latest driver version(361.43).

Every time I restart my computer, my graphics card completely shits itself. It stutters massively, won't get more than 40 frames in fucking anything(except Vermintide, where everything runs at like 5x the normal speed like it's on crack). I thought my GPU was dying, but then I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them and it started working fine again. Except I have to uninstall and reinstall the drivers every fucking time I restart my computer, for any reason.

(reposting from old thread)
I have a problem were in some games it seems out of sync, this happens mostly with timers (cooldowns, clock etc.) 'lagging' back and forth.

My character jumps around but even other characters in the game don't, it's very strange, here are some examples.

https://gyazo.com/ebf30968a8d0c9c11519e26fa30f4bbd - .gif that's too big for here

https://gyazo.com/53c0e7c678bcef8a03451cac4a9ee747

The example game isn't the only time it happens, it happens in other games too. I have no idea what would cause it, searches reveal nothing, any help would be appreciated.

I've tried getting this answered twice now but no replies, if there is another information I can give for you to help I can.

Internet speeds are fine, ping isn't high though it might be a packet size problem, everyone else in the game moves normally.

Basic specs are i7 processor which is 3 or so years old at the moment, GTX 970 ti 4gb, I run Windows 10 and the game from an SSD and I have 8gb of RAM, I can't recall the speed of it though. Performance, at least from the task manager performance viewer, looks fine.

I'm not at my computer at the moment so I can't give a full rundown, I will be able to later though, if it's necessary.

Got an EVGA gtx 970 for my first build (built it last weekend).

What should I expect to be able to overclock it to, and any advice for overclocking? I was just playing around with the overclocking software last night and I think I got to +120 on the core clock before the minimum fps dropped from 25 to 7 in unigene heaven and artifacting started showing in more than just scene 10 (at least I think that was artifacting).the It was also the area I started getting black screens, although nothing ever actually crashed.


(base clock speed turbos to 1342 and max at 1392).

Also, I've heard that using the adapter that comes with the card is bad, should I switch it out?

Hey /g/. I come looking for advice. I'm gonn simply copypasta the conversation here that I had with someone else.


Well the past couple months I can't shut down my computer unless I wanna risk it not rebooting

I don't know what exactly was wrong with it, but on reboot it gets to where the windows logo comes up and it's loading

But it sits there endlessly.

It used to be that I could hard reboot it and it would work, but over time that worked less and less

And for the past three days, it's been unreviveable

I've tried booting from an external HDD backup

I've tried system restore

I've tried startup repair

I've even tried booting up a version of Linux Mint from a CD, and you know how much I hate Linux

I had al but given up

So today I decided to go for broke and do a full factory reset

Even after that, it took a couple of reboots for it to finally work

And now I'm online, everything seems fine other than everything needing updates

[REDACTED]

this isn't a stupid question but you should ask here
just copy an paste what you said
>>52589267

[REDACTED]

Well perhaps I'll try there

But here's my predicament

I need to reboot to update Internet Explorer so I'm using the current version

At the same time, I want to try and install TF2 to see if it will work now that I've reset everything\

But if it doesn't work, it'll blue screen and I'll have to reboot anyway

Should I take the risk of rebooting and hoping everything's fixed, or should I just play it safe and not?
