diogenysos: I upgraded internet explorer a few months ago and I suspect that is the cause. I have gone into some sites and they state that they don't recognise internet explorer. In this site I cannot use the smileys in rich text.
ketchuplover: I've had no problems with it. I think the "secret" is to uncheck that box that was there before completing the download. (I don't remember now what it was about). At POGO, the forums suggested unchecking that box, for less problems. I did uncheck it, and I've had zero issues. Possibly coincidence, though, I suppose. For some reason I practically never experience problems when other people do.
WellyWales: Yes, but is it specifically an ipad you want, or any good tablet, e.g Samsung, Sony, Nexus tablet. Should it run iOS, Windows8 or Android. What are the main things you want to get out of it ?
WellyWales: Actually there are only a few ipads to choose from, only nice thing about Apple, that you are not blinded by choice. However, if you are looking at tablets generally the choice really explodes. Is it specifically an iPad you want?
The Linux Foundation is funding three Linux kernel internships through the Outreach Program for Women administered by the GNOME Foundation. These internships have a $5,000 stipend and come with a $500 travel grant to attend and speak at LinuxCon this fall. This is a great opportunity to work with a mentor and get started with kernel development, which as many articles report, is a great way to land a high-paying job.
alexlee: That looks like a Chinese, Japanese or similar language version with charset that is not installed no his computer. Clicking the small English flag at the right column (and confirming) should help.
Not really a Computer problem, more of a Website problem (which i dont know a lot about lol).
A friend of mine runs a Cheer-leading pack of young girls. They have won awards everywhere, and even at there young ages have traveled the world. She needs a website, and asked me where is the best/cheapest place to buy a name and hosting site for the cheerleaders ? She already have the names she want for the page and they are available too (as in no one has them yet).
Found the answer... Unlike my old card, the new one has pre-set min/max range on the GPU and memory for over-clocking. So the Catalyst Control centre no longer needs to test in this range for stability problems. Although, it is advised to keep below 95%.
Above that, the likes of MSI afterburner are required with the safeties disengaged. And in my case (which I am doing) add additional cooling.
Somehow I installed this download manager or whatever it is. I thinik it was bundled with another software (maybe ccleaner). Apparently Ilivid has a good reputation with some reputable sites because from what I've read just today, it has a 5 star rating from download.com.
But for the past month I've had horrible problems with a very slow computer. Very slow. It got so bad that I thought it was just the browser I used so I switched back to Firefox. Same problem with Firefox but with one exception: I could not designate a homepage of my own. It kept defaulting back to some searchqu.com. So after a little investigating, one suggestion to "clean up" my computer was to go to C:\Program Files\Windows iLivid Toolbar\Datamngr\ToolBar and delete the program. Other suggestions were to download this or that malware scanner (which I did) but nothing was detected. I didn't even know I had Ilivid installed on my computer. I went to the directory as suggested and found the program with an uninstall feature. I uninstalled it (I couldn't do an uninstall via Windows Control Panel because the program didn't show up in the list) and immediately after the uninstall my computer is 5+ times faster. I can't believe the change. Has anyone else had this experience with Ilivid?
(V): There is no DX11 for XP and i suppose Microsoft do not have plans to develop it in the future either. They have not made dx10 either for xp. There are some third party hacks for dx10 in xp, but i'm not very convinced about them. Maybe there will be third party versions of dx11 for xp but i wouldn't hold my breath.
As far as Linux goes, even older versions of dx do not run perfectly under Wine. Proper dx11 support might come some day but once again, do not hold your breath. OpenGL is the graphics standard in Linuxes anyway (of course DX includes more than just graphics).
So i guess only way to properly run dx11 software is to get Windows 7.
Now.. I know the answer is very probably no, but does anyone know of a method of updating from dx9 to dx11 without having to go through the hassle of updating my OS from XP to 7? I think I've gone as far as I can, re managing to find a dx10 update for XP, but I have not seen any that can take me from dx10 to dx11 without redoing my Windows OS.
I'm also interested in what the likes of ubuntu can do regarding this matter.
