    I guess the topic of the thread doesn't matter anymore.

     If any of you 4/20 debbie downers have celebrated St.Patrick's day while living anywhere outside of Ireland, you can respectfully go stub your toe.. Thanks in advance. 

    Edit: This whole thread is LOL
    St Patrick's day come along once a year.  Whereas pot smokers are constantly referring to 4/20 daily.  It's tiresome.  We get it. You smoke weed.  We don't care.
    420 comes along once a year unless the 20th April occurs more than once?
    And every single day 4:20 comes along twice a day and all the edge lords and rule breakers must announce to the world how edgy they are.  In this way I'd rather it be the '70s where smokers whispered among their friends.
    As opposed to not only the Irish but pretty much 20% of the world population get drunk at no particular time of day? Oh look, I'm a drunk asshole and it's 10:00 AM. Oh look, I'm a drunk asshole and it's 2:30 PM. Anyone know what time it is? IT'S BEER THIRTY DUDE!
    You're right. I rather not hear it from  either group.

  • Help.. Ever since my laptop's screen got repaired, my nVIDIA card isn't working!

    For each program you can't run because of this error do the following.  Right click on the application executable and/or it's short cut. Select Properties and the check the box for Run this program as Administrator.  This includes the Nvidia Control Panel 


    Error, Will Robinson, Error.  Ignore the following.  At least until your tried the above.

    I googled the error message you're receiving after I wrote all this stuff.  This is a big diagnostic fuck up on my part.  Try the above first.

    Replacing a screen on a laptop has absolutely no effect on the software drivers used by the GPU (in your case an Nvidia GPU).  The tech doesn't even need access to your operating system.  If the OS boot logo shows up then the new screen works. 

    They fucked something up. Make them fix it without charge while you wait.  If it's what I think they did it should take less than 5 minutes to correct.  It initially sounds like they  created a new user account, removed your Administrator rights to your own computer and gave those rights to the new user. 

    I used to work as a warranty hardware repair tech and did screen replacements among other things.  The manufacturer's (Dell/Alienware) policy was if the boot screen showed then the work was successfully done. Techs were prohibited from making any software changes unless directed by phone support.

    IF you want to do it yourself then you need to replace the Nvidia drivers and related software with a fresh install of them.  But to do that you need Administrator rights.  If this is a Toshiba PC then you will need to get those from Toshiba.  Otherwise you should be able to get them from Nvidia.
