#185690 Considering Reinstalling Windows 10 due to BSODs

Posted by Zennon on 8 hours ago

The ticking from the HDD is indicative of a HHD failure.


If you want to test it to find out then I would grab a copy of GSmartControl GSmartControl
which can be run from an.exe in windows or "recommended" burned to a live disk and run from CD/DVD or pen drive (if you use Rufus to make it bootable) to check the disk for bad sectors / failure. https://gsmartcontro...x.php/Downloads


While you are at are it it I would test your RAM with Memtest86 burned to disk.


You will not need to buy Windows 10 again your license is saved to your machine and when you install Windows10 press I do not have a license key to carry on and it will auto activate when your are online.

You will have to tell the steam client the root of your steam downloads and they will work again from your second HDD.

#185536 Bt vs sky broadband

Posted by Zennon on 3 days ago

There is a price hike imminent, you should get a 30 days from the email to get out of contract for free.


Keep an eye out for it in the next few days I would say.

#185534 Bt vs sky broadband

Posted by Zennon on 3 days ago

It is the period of the new contract so 18 months from the start of that.

You would have to pay to get out unless in the email says that with the price hike you can get out of your contract.

They usually give a get out of jail free with price hikes but you have to act quick if they offer it.

This is my broadband line, it is not perfect.

#181687 What is Broadcom?

Posted by Zennon on 21 May 2018 - 09:28 AM

Like you say this is a Broadcom chipset not an Intel puma in the ISP modem you have now

If you do not need a geo filter or if you do not want to prioritise your consoles packets over say another user on your network.

Or if you live alone only using a console on with nothing else online and do not need a geo filter then no.

If you need any of the above then yes.

#181678 What is Broadcom?

Posted by Zennon on 21 May 2018 - 05:40 AM

Broadcom are a manufacturer of chipset's including modems and other solutions, the green areas are Broadcom solutions.




From the exchanges to the cabinets and then your modem also if you buy or are given a Broadcom device, not every cabinet is Broadcom but a large percent are here in the UK so we like to match chipsets for stability reasons.


Broacom make very good chipsets.

Yeah you and I have both spent a lot more money on cans that were less than impressive. For the price I just haven't even seen anything in the ballpark with theses cans, so my first thought is why isn't somebody else doing this same thing. It shows that a quality headset can be made at an affordable price and IMO this is a very solid set of cans.


And yes Yoda, I hope I find them too. The more I see this thread the more I want to use them again and hopefully I don't have to beat one of my nephews in the process... ;)

The Chinese know how to keep the costs down I own an Audio-gd R2R 11 headphone amp built by hand and by all accounts it is beating out £1000 amps and it cost me £270 delivered, and yes it is amazing. Yes I have heard big sound stages as all my headphone's are known for them but his thing has depth as well so it is very layered. I know I do not need another amp this is it now :)


It is the same with Takstar low price high quality and that case you get with it wow, that would cost three times the price of the headphones just for the box alone if it was for say Sennheiser.


Happy days :)

#181462 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by Zennon on 18 May 2018 - 08:01 AM

So then why are the only people getting banned or warned (like my last account was) the ones that speak out against NetDuma's actions or against the people that are actively (still) calling them crybabies or "Impatient no clue complainers"?


Why aren't the latter getting a single warning on any of their 100 different posts in this thread?


I was banned for taking a screen shot showing that the release date was pushed back again and saying "Would love to know the excuse this time". I guess that's "inappropriate" behavior? <_<


But okay, let me go ahead and report the post literally 9 spots above yours (on the same page...) as being inappropriate so nothing can be done about it like all of his other posts in this thread.

Thank you for pointing it out and it has been seen to.


Let people vent there frustrations and stop bating please.

#181457 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by Zennon on 18 May 2018 - 05:53 AM

I understand the frustration and that is why I have not interacted in the thread letting people blow off steam, I have seen people posts about crying, this is incorrect voicing disappointment is not crying. I wish it had been launched already with more gamers using DumaOS as I am sure Iain and the team do too.


Has licensing to Netgear scuppered earlier plans for a 2017 release I am sure it has, I think that any business would be crazy to turn an offer from one of the biggest router company's in the world.


Has the above upset users of course and Iain will be gutted it has, he is now under pressure twice as much as he used to be, probably more and is fighting to get the DumaOS out for everyone.


I may buy a XR500 soon but looking at the specs of the R1 firmware and the Netgear firmware the R1 does so much more at the moment. I am sure when Iain releases it for the R1 he will then have time to write new RApp's and then it will catch up and then super seed the R1 but for now for me the R1 fw is where its at.


All of the above are my thought's and not of Netduma as I am just a gamer and help out when I or if I can.


Have some people taken it a bit far, yes but only because they have been wound up by other member's to a point where they are getting even more annoyed.

If there has been any behavior from mod's or members that is deemed inappropriate please use the report process so it can me monitored and dealt with accordingly.

Yes I do and I do really like them, I was impressed when I got them and they just seem to get better the more I wore them. The only problem I have with them is I can't find them and haven't been able to for about 2 months.


I don't remember where I put them, maybe one of my nephews,I"ve got 3 from my sister in law (7 total) and they are all gamers, so maybe they borrowed them and I didn't know about it but with this thread, I'm gonna have to give them a call a find out. And if they took them without asking there getting beat.

Yeah they take a little time to break in to get the treble to tame, then a bit of brain burn in to get used to the image but boy what a headphone and for basically nothing in the head-fi world of headphones and the crazy prices.


Hope you find them/get them back soon.

I am glad you like them, best bang for the buck I have ever spent on audio, they are up there with some flagships I have :)

#181320 QOS Active and Lag is terrible

Posted by Zennon on 16 May 2018 - 02:33 PM

I have tested the higher ping theory just the other day on WW11 after reading this thread using third party tools and PC connection sharing to my Xbox so the higher ping settings transferred to its connection.


Increasing ping puts you in higher ping lobbies, it pulls people in from further afield so to keep the pings around the same time for all players.


If you manipulate your ping really high so I made it over 100ms everyone was 1 and two barring.


If you change your ping mid match it has no advantage.


I am impressed with the system they use, it is lobby searching by ping after all and puts my mind at rest about people trying to cheat the system :)

#181133 Does an good dns matter for gaming

Posted by Zennon on 13 May 2018 - 09:17 AM

For gaming no, for web page resolving yes.


Cloudflare's is great for web browsing.

#181123 V Moda Boom Mic Pro

Posted by Zennon on 13 May 2018 - 05:02 AM

Those are solid cans for a budget price, drivers, housing's and position of said drivers in housing make them a must have IMO for gaming. And as Yoda said, I've spent a whole lot more money on can that I was very underwhelmed with. I'm sure you'll be more than happy with your new cans, there sweet.

Do you have some fuzzy?


If I try to go back to any other headphone for gaming they all sound dull and lifeless with bloated or no bass and veiled highs, these just sound real.
