    Possible to change output of sound?

    Is it possible to change the output device of a sound playing on my computer? Like, can I let iTunes play on my USB headphones while sound in Firefox plays on my non-USB speakers? The only program that I know that has this built in functionally is Skype and other Voip programs. For example, I...

    Solved: Any file named "taskmgr.exe" refuses to run...

    First off, I fixed it.. Turns out that when I ran Process Explorer before, and told it to replace my task manager, it screwed it up and made it so I couldn't run task manager.. I just redownloaded Process Explorer and told it to replace task manager, then restore task manager again, and fixed...

    Solved: Any file named "taskmgr.exe" refuses to run...

    And yes, this includes the Task Manager. I copy paste a copy of task manager to my C:\ drive and then rename it to something else ("taskmgr2.exe") and it will run perfectly fine.. I can take other exe's, like programs I've written, and rename them "taskmgr.exe" and they also refuse to run...

    Failing Hard Drive?

    Ahh, true, but I can hear the disk spinning... I also tried putting the disk in USB Hard Drive enclosure and tried to see if I could get it working that way, but Ubuntu shows it as a "USB Drive" but when I try accessing it it says "Unable to mount location". Ahhh, All hope is lost? [Edit] This...

    Failing Hard Drive?

    So I was playing some Starcraft II and I BSoD. Computer restarts and says it can't find the boot device. I go restart again, load up the bios and look thru the boot settings, I have my C: as the primary, and my DVD drive as the secondary. Restart again, still no luck booting up. I keep double...

    New Computer Build recomendations...

    Yea, right now I am deciding on using an 870 mobo with a single 5850 video card and not go CrossFire, it costs me a whole lot less this way, so I'll just leave it at that. Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0...

    New Computer Build recomendations...

    Yea, that's why for this build I'm going for amd/ati, because of the price.. I used to be an intel/nvidia person, but I'm thinking about changing that just because of the price.. Is there anything else I really have to get for the computer? I already got an HDD and a PSU for it.. The components...

    New Computer Build recomendations...

    Yea, I understand that most of the video card stuff will only benefit in gaming, and yes, I do have a large monitor. I looked at some benchmarks for the 2x 5770 and single 5850 and on some games, there is a good 20 fps gap between the two, while some games there is only a 5 or so fps gap. I...

    New Computer Build recomendations...

    I didn't put too much thought into a case.. I usually keep my case open so I dunno if that'll have any effect on it. Would this Antec 300 be alright? As for the video card, I can definitely consider getting that one instead. What mobo would you get instead of the evga one? This is my first...

    New Computer Build recomendations...

    I'm building myself a new computer and I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on what I should/shouldn't buy. Here's what I got so far. Antec VSK-2000 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case EVGA 141-BL-E757-TR LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX X58 SLI LE Intel Motherboard Intel Core i7-920...

    Windows 7 Extensionless File Icon

    That's your answer to everything isn't it? Well, this has been like this for a while, I just started getting ticked off about it, so system restore probably won't work.

    User account nightmare

    System restore would probably work.
