I'm an electrical engineer currently working as a software engineer and developer. Prior to that, I was a computer tech for 6 months at a independently owned computer store while I looked for an actual engineering job.

I'm a big gamer, with a lot of it taking place on the PC, but I also own a 360 and PS3.

comment Nvidia 3D to 3D display
I'm not sure, not at my home machine at the moment. I believe there is some indication somewhere in the control panel that a connected display supports stereo 3D.

comment Nvidia 3D to 3D display
Don't know the full solution, but one thing to check is that the NVidia software correctly detects the projector as a 3D display.

I don't know of one off hand, but I'd check AMD's site to see if hey have one.

comment Laptop shuts down while playing games, feels cool
Does the hardware monitor show the temperature of the GPU? It may still be overheating without the rest of the computer becoming abnormally warm.

I'm pretty sure you have hardware issues. Have you tried using a different monitor or using that monitor with a different computer?

comment Clonezilla Live CD won't boot on Dell Optiplex 790
I solved the problem. In fact, using an older version of CloneZilla wouldn't have worked either, nor would an Ubuntu Natty live CD. The comment from L2G is correct, the computer I was trying to boot CloneZilla from wasn't supported by the older version.

comment Why do I have to import .reg file from RegEdit in Win7 and not from .bat file?
Part of the reason yours wasn't working is because you had spaces in the filename.

comment How to make Chrome open bookmarks and URLs in new tabs?
I have an extension for mouse gestures that does rocker gestures already, although I don't know if it requires JavaScript. I know I shouldn't be doing this, but I leave JavaScript on, except for what's blocked by AdBlock.

It doesn't do bookmarks, but URLs are the big thing. Thanks!

comment Laptop Keyboard Water Damage
If it's still scrolling left with the key disabled, then it's probably not the keyboard.

comment How do I type the infinity character in a web browser?
Chrome seems to be the only app that treats this right on my computer. Everywhere else, I get ▲.

comment Any change to my hard disk is ignored after shut down
I'm going to agree with @DanielRHicks. Did the laptop come with an SSD, or did you install that afterwards? I would check that your drivers are up to date (especially if you installed the SSD yourself or reloaded the OS) and ensure that you're shutting your machine down properly.
