    Update on DIscord. I tested it on Linux, and was not having any problems running it. However, the problem still persists on WIndows. Why, I don't know. It will run for a while, then I sound like a chipmunk...drivers, maybe? Still planning a new build in the near future.

    ASUS Xonar SE

    Hello! You may have already solved this problem, but anyway...I'm new to Linux (currently testing Mint to see how it works), and normally run Windows 7. I recently bought an Asus Xonar AE card, because my onboard sound quit. It seems to be running ok, although I am still trying to learn how to...

    Buying a new Computer/Laptop - Avoid screen tearing (and some more)

    Just a thought...I have been doing gaming for many years, and have always ran a separate video card. I can get rid of the screen tears by using vsync. Have you considered going to a video card like an nVidia GTX1050? That would help with performance, and free up your memory, since you would be...

    Yes, this is a mid tower, full ATX, which I built. I have been building my own for some time now, this one about 4 years ago. Time for an upgrade...I play flight sims, such as IL2 1946 and IL2 Battle of Stalingrad. A nice upgrade will give my graphics a good boost, especially with a better video...

    Ok, I have Discord up and running on Linux. Working ok so far, except for very low mic volume...not sure how to fix that yet. Everything looks like it is turned up. May be something I missed. As for the board, I am now having trouble with mouse lockups. I had a few of these with Linux, but now...

    I looked at how to install DIscord on Linux. I saw that the Discord site had a downloadable package, but I also saw instructions on how to install it from the command line in Mint. Would using the command line be the best way? Thanks, Olds

    New to Linux - Need Guidance

    Looked for information on how to test the mic. Found a lot of information on using the commands to do this. I also looked in the Software Manager for audio programs like a voice chat. I found a program called Audacity, which is supposed to be for recordings, I think. I am downloading it right...

    Just saw your post, Wiz. I do have persistence set, and am running on a 32 gig stick. IIRC, I did set the persistence at 4 gb. I will look at the other solutions tonight. Thanks for all your help.
