Hi IT professionals, I think I might have just gotten a job as an IT Business Analyst. Can anyone tell me specifically what the job might entail? How "business" oriented are positions like that? The expected duties make it sound like a systems analysis and design job, which I was hoping for, as I am definitely not a "business" person. Thanks in advance for any adviuce.

This whole job ended up being a scam, which I assumed from the start. So, I'd appreciate it if people would stop jumping to conclusions about me and what I post on this community. If I thought there was a real chance at this job, I wouldn't have said who it was or commented about them. Thanks for the unhelpful comments though.

Computer Diagnostics  - 
 
So, I have a stupid question that I should already know the answer to, but here it goes. I looked up my build on PCPartPicker and it shows an average power usage of 386 watts with all the essential parts. Is a 550 watt PSU enough headroom for the build considering I don't overclock. The reason I ask is because my computer on multiple occasions just randomly shuts off. I thought it was specifically with a game I was playing and a supposed bug in that game. I was just listening to music in Chrome, when it did it again. This leads me to believe it's not a software problem, at least not the one I thought it was? Could it be that my systems spikes at close to 550 watts or maybe more? Thanks in advance for the help.

If you are still trying to figure out the issue message me on hangouts i'll see what i can come up with as a solution. And no its not a shot at trying to charge money or anything just easier to go back and forth while i'm at work. From the gaming considered as the possible trigger i would say either the GPU is getting to its end and pulling more energy then it is saying or the PSU is getting time to replace. couple other ideas if you want to hear them let me know.

+Lestat Craven Yes I have. It's alright, I just don't know if it's worth the money, like I said.

Nexus 6 / 6P  - 
 
Hi, I've been on a clear case kick lately. I bought a really cheap one for my 6P, it's OK, but obviously not great. So, I just ordered a clear Adopted case and Spigen's Air Cushion case to compare? Do you own one or both of these cases? If so, why do you like it? How do they compare? 

Update: I just got the Adopted case in and I like the feel, but it's a little too frosted for my liking. I might return it.

Update 2: Just got the Spigen case in as well and I definitely like it better. I don't know if it's exactly what I want though, so I'm going to give it a couple days and see.

Check out what UAG has to offer. I believe they make a clear one for that phone and it's got better protection than most clear cases out there. Used to have one on my Note 5 before I got the Priv and it was great.

Computer Diagnostics  - 
 
Hi everyone, does anyone here know if energy conserving power strips are know to cause problems with computers booting? I plugged everything in to the strip, computer into the master socket and monitor into one of the slaves. When I power on the computer I initially get a normal post beep, but as the computer continues to boot, I get one long and three short beeps, then the computer finishes booting. It's not a huge deal if this is normal, I can always remove the speaker as it does eventually boot, or I can return the strip. I was just curious if this is something that's bound to happen with a power strip like this. Thanks in advance for any advice.

+webwolf Thanks for the input. I ended up returning it and picking up a cheaper surge protector only power strip. I'm not too worried about it, if leaving my monitor on standby won't hurt it. It's just that I picked up a PG278Q recently and being an expensive monitor, wanted to preserve its condition for as long as possible. If it was a cheaper monitor, I wouldn't even think twice.

Hi, does anyone here own a Maximus VII Hero? If so, I know it supports NVMe with a UEFI update, but is the Asus Hyper Kit needed for NVMe drives or can you just use the M.2 interface without the Hyper Kit? Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks +Thomas Ybarra​​. I ended up ordering a Samsung PM951 to test NVMe support.

Hi, this isn't exactly a professional (on the job) question, but I could still use some help. I'm running Virtualbox on Windows 7 (boot camp) and I can't seem to get my Vista VM to pick up the Vista ISO I made. I tried multiple programs, nothing. All I get is "no bootable medium found". It boots from a physical machine, but not in Virtualbox. I feel like I'm missing something obvious. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

+Josiah Deal​​​​​​ I'm a little confused about your earlier comment, I guess.

Edit: To clear things up, this is the article I followed: https://www.raymond.cc/blog/how-to-burn-downloaded-windows-vista-to-dvd/
The last section talks about creating an ISO. Can you explain the part about the etfsboot.com file and its roll in creating a bootable ISO, at least in this article? The rest of the section looks similar to what I have already done.

Nexus 6 / 6P  - 
 
I'm sure I'm not the first and only person to mention this on here, but it frustrates me so much. The N6 to me, is a near perfect phone, the only thing I want is for Google to enable the f*@#$&% LED for notifications without root! I would literally pay money for this because Ambient Display is trash. I just had to get that out.

For obvious reasons, this article from Android Police really grinds my gears.
