  • Help with SC4 (Sim City 4) (Graphics)?

    So you see I have Sim City 4 on a Windows 8.1 computer, but there is a huge graphics problem. The screen becomes distorted as if it is screen tearing everytime I move the mouse. It is not an FPS problem but it resembles screen tearing. I know that it is because this is very new hardware, and SC4 is such an old game but I would love to still play it. Here are my specs:

    AMD Phenom II 1090T (6 core)

    AMD(ATI) Radeon 6670 HD DDR3 2GB

    10 GB RAM

    PSU 460W

    I'm not sure if this matters, but it is in the config log so I'm gonna list it: Turtle Beach PX3

  • Help with JVM!?

    So I have a 64 bit computer with 10 GB of RAM, and apparently I get this error:

    Error occured during initialization of VM

    Could not reserve enough space for object heap

    Could not create Java virtual Machine.

    The funny thing is though I put in the system path -Xmx3G since I get some errors with memory and it helps, but not this time.

    This is the command I get when launching a bat: gradlew.bat setupDevWorkspace --refresh-dependencies

    The next command I do is:

    gradlew.bat eclipse

    This come from to setup an Forge FML src for modifications of Minecraft (Can be found at:

    I have Java version "1.7.0_51)

    and the Server VM is build 24.51=b03 mixed mode

    The programs and the system paths are both 64 bit, and I don't have any old versions of Java installed.

    Anything I can do to solve this?

  • Help with convection and conduction?

    I really don't understand the difference between the two. Plz don't give definitions, ik what they are. Convection is the one that confuses me the most, cuz to me it seems the same except it is through a liquid and gas, but isn't that conduction? Everywhere I search on the internet doesn't help me.

  • Printer is not working, HP Photosmart C4795?

    For some reasons, my printer doesn't feel like cooperating with my computer, and I lost my USB wire with it and the only choice I have is wirless. DON'T TELL ME BUY A WIRE I DON'T HAVE TIME. I used wireless before without problems but anyway, lets get specific. If you need to use complex terms, I understand according to my Yahoo Answers Username. I'm using Windows 7.

    Here is the wireless confiugration when it printed:


    Network Status: Offline (which is weird, the printer said it was enabled, the radio icon was on also)

    Active Connection Type: None

    URL(s) for Embedded Web Server: None

    Firmware Revision: SPM1FN0935AR

    Hostname: HP9171D0

    Serial Number: CN2IMF102055J7 (if this is private, I don't care nobody knows where I live :D)

    Admin Password: None

    802.11 WIRELESS

    Hardware Address (MAC): 0026559171d0

    Status: Disconnected

    PORT 9100

    Status: Disabled


    Status: Enabled

    Service Name: Photosmart C4700 series [9171D0]


    Status: Enabled


    WS Discovery

    Status: Enabled

    WS Print

    Status: Enabled


    (Obviously this is empty, I can't connect to the printer.)

    Here are the Wi-Fi network I was using since it was report. I'm only using my network obviously:

    SSID: P2Y26

    Mode: Infrastructure

    BSSID: f8:e4:fb:35:3a:b0

    Channel: 6

    Privacy: RSN

    Auth: WPA-PSK

    Encrypt: AES/TKIP

    Signal: -44

    WPS: No (which is strange even though I have the button, but when I click on it nothing happens.

    So hope for the best, this is really important.

  • Question about gravity, kinetic energy, potential energy?

    How come the loop-the-loop climax on a roller coaster doesn't have the maximum amount of potential energy even though it isn't the highest point of the roller coaster ride? Their was 3/4 kinetic energy and 1/4 potential energy at the bottom of the loop-the-loop It is is completely upside down so gravity must be acting on or something like that. I watched this at school as animation, so can anybody clarify this?

  • Scanning problem with HP Photosmart C4795 all-in-one printer?

    I'm trying to scan something to my PC, and I keep on getting the error: Scan Error. Try to scan from computer or see documentation. With wireless or not, same result. The drivers are installed because I can print to it wirelessly or wired with both of my computers. Anyway, I can't find the program for the scanning software. I used to have it, but it was remove for a computer reset. I don't have the disk and my warranty expired. And I don't want to download the huge driver including the suite since it is a waste of time unless you can find a individual suite program thing for this problem. Please I need this quick and I could scan before without any problem, even to both PC's.

  • Please Help Me With Windows 8 Problem!?

    For a long time, I had windows 8 release preview from the official website. I originally had Windows 7 home premium. When I installed it, it kept a windows.old folder which contained my old windows 7 operating system. I made a very stupid mistake of deleting it as I thought I wouldn't need it anymore. So after a long period of time, it started restarting randomly and i got scared as it showed me a BSOD screen for a millisecond and my computer restarts every two hours. I found out the cause which was Microsoft wanted me to activate and pay for the full version of windows 8. I can't afford it and when I did slmgr -rearm on my CMD I got an access denied. So what do I do to stop the restarting? I don't care if the OS is windows 7 or 8 but I want my computer to stop restarting without losing my files on it.
