comment Windows 8.1 cannot detect HDMI audio on older display
I just had the same problem with totally different hardware (and this time Windows 10), a setup which I'm pretty sure has worked previously. My comment here is as true now as ever. In this case, I eventually got it to work by a random sequence of rebooting, unplugging, and re-plugging.

Moved the "update" to the top since it is most likely the best answer.

comment Flashing window in gnu screen
It says "switched to audible bell." when you do this. I wonder if the server beeps whenever I hit <tab> too many times. Maybe I will practice my Morse code and see if anyone responds.

comment New computer can't run Linux, but runs Windows with no problems
My previous comment turned out to be false -- it was still failing, at least under some challenging usage scenarios. I did just discover that a new BIOS is available, so I have just upgraded MicroCode from 0xd to 0x13. After this, I am passing the test that was previously failing...

comment Util to check external USB Drive health?
I think this question does a pretty good job on: "describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve." What appears to be missing from the question, making it off-topic, is an open-ended "how do I do this?" at the end.

Early results indicate all better (with SpeedStep enabled) on Ubuntu MATE 15.10 64-bit. Fingers crossed...

comment Gnome not working well with NoMachine
I was having trouble with my Gnome/GTK+ applications not drawing/painting through NoMachine. This happened after my session had been working fine for several days. I didn't root-cause it, but this question led me to a usable solution (that didn't involve restarting). I found that the "Mist" theme had no problems, but all of the other installed themes failed to draw correctly. This was under Red Hat 6.6 with GNOME 2.28.2.

comment New computer can't run Linux, but runs Windows with no problems
@gabrielhpugliese: Thanks for the link. I still think the fixes that I posted work, but I have been running Windows on this computer for the last couple of months, so I don't have any new data -- other than the observation that Windows still doesn't crash.
