Are older versions of chrome not supported on forum anymore? I cant get forum to display properly on my old pc which I cant get update anymore due to old vista os. I can see it ok on my phone though.

I'm not aware that it's incompatible with older versions.

check the web browser section of this thread here: https://msfn.org/board/topic/175262-last-versions-of-software-for-windows-vista-and-windows-server-2008/

as noted, it's better to use one that has the "ONG" tag (on-going support/updates)

Sadly there's not much left in that list and nothing that is a major browser, only derivatives.

thanks for response, hopefully it clears up after you finish the server work.

If the problems your having are new, it's not forum related, since the forum software hasn't changed, the last update was over a month ago, and was minor, maybe using the old theme might be better for you? go to profile > modify profile > look and layout and select Curve

I need to free up some space on my C: Drive to fit a couple of new games on. One of my Games (Battlefield 1) is taking up 80GB.  :ahhh

I'm thinking I should move any program that doesn't need speed (eg CAD) to the D: Drive.  :think:

Need to clean a ton of dust out of the inside of my computer case. Thankfully, this one is retired from being used for college, so I don't have to worry about it being out of commission.

What tools and supplies do I need? Could the "corrupt" memory error, occasional blue screens, and intermittent Wifi all be related to dust buildup? I keep the antivirus (Norton) up to date, so I don't think it's a virus.

And, next step (and perhaps even while its apart for cleaning, I plan to at least double the RAM (from 8 to 16GB) and install a supplemental SSD for gaming purposes.  What's a good RAM that doesn't cost a ton of money?

The new computer has had an issue out of the box. It beeps once every time it comes on, meaning the BIOS code for bad RAM. Seems everytime the computer is used for anything graphics intensive, it shuts off on its own. So, send it back or replace the RAM myself?

I don't know what's causing your error problems, but a good dusting is a great idea because something important could be overheating if it's suffocated in dust.
All you usually need is a Phillips screwdriver to open the case.
I would (carefully!) use a vacuum to get rid of the majority of the dust, and a can of compressed air to deal with the rest.

What kind of RAM does your computer have?

(And some say that Norton IS a virus...  :rofl: )
Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Well I bit the bullet again and now have parts on the way for two new computers, the priority will be the Ryzen 5 GTX3060Ti sons Christmas present. the lower priority is mine which is a Ryzen 9 5950x GTX 3080Ti for me.

Then the old PC will be converted to server status, it has 12 (ish) drive bays in after all and a ton of memory.

What takes me the time is the cable management, I'm obsessed with it. Takes me longer than than putting all the parts in  :rofl:

I also have to work out exactly how much unicorn vomit is going in to my sons PC, as he's 10 I figure loads  :rofl:

I'll post the full specs when they are finished  :tu:
