  • The rim of the filter isn't showing up its more just a general darkness outside of the central portion of the image. So much so I'm not able to correct it in lightroom. I have an older Hoya three ...
  • Created discussion thread B+W 10 stop filter vignetting
    I just bought a 10 stop single coated B+Wnd filter and have an issue with strong vignetting when using my 16-35 nikon lens.  Shooting at 16.mm the edges, really everything outside the center, are ...
  • Replied in Problem found
    Yes, and they didn't even charge me for their time.  It's up and running now with no problems yet.
  • Replied in Problem found
    LOL.  Ok, just put it on my account. : )
  • Replied in Problem found
    Actually, I did check each of the sticks to make sure they were firmly in place, which they seemed to be, but what I didn't do was pull them out and reset them completely.
  • Replied in Problem found
    I just heard from the repair shop and they told me they reset the memory sticks as a couple of you had mentioned, and now it's running fine.  So hopefully that was it.  I guess I should have tried ...
  • Jim, do you see any reason to get the XPS 8900 over the 8700?  They look identical to me, unless I'm overlooking something. There's about a $100-$200 price differential the best I can tell.  ...
  • I would be happy with the XPS 8700 model, which is $719 after the 25% off. That's a great price, less than a new Inspiron I had been pricing, which doesn't even come with a dedicated video card.  ...
  • That's okay.  I read it!  Thanks for all the information.  I'm just waiting for word from the repair shop on what's wrong with mine, before I decide whether to replace it or not.  Hopefully there ...
  • Thanks.  I'll get on their mailing list.
  • Jim, can you tell me how often Dell Outlet runs these coupon specials?  I noticed they had a 50% off special, but it expired yesterday.  I currently have a six year old XPS 8100 that I'm having ...
  • I decided to drop it off at a shop today. .  . need to get it up and running to load all of these snowstorm photos.  The technician did some preliminary work but said it kept shutting down on him, ...
  • Yes, I ran my virus and malware scans and it came out clean.  I seldom use this PC for the internet other than uploading my photos to Zenfolio.
  • It just occurred to me this afternoon that I had downloaded COMODO file backup on January 19, and the problems started after that.  Whether it's just coincidental I don't know.  In any event I ...
  • It does have the VGA and HDMI ports but they're part of the NVIDIA card.  There aren't any other video ports on the back.
  • Thanks again everyone for all your advice.  I'm going to try removing the graphics card today and see what happens (I'm not sure if the motherboard has built-in graphics or not).  If I don't get ...
  • Thanks.  Yes I've cleaned it a couple times before.  But since it keeps happening at the very same point, I have to think it's an issue with Windows.  I just ran a diagnostics check and nothing ...
  • Thanks for all of your suggestions.   I'll give them a shot to see if I can get it working.  I have backed up all my data onto a couple external drives, so I'm ok there.
  • Created discussion thread PC won't load Windows, then shuts down
    I have a six year old Dell XPS Desktop running Windows 7. A couple days ago I turned it on, and when the screen came up showing the Windows Logo, it froze up and then shut down. It's been that way ...
  • I shoot with the Gitzo 2531 (series 2) Mountaineer with my D810 and D300s and find it about perfect for my needs.  It has the center column which I find useful myself and don't feel it sacrifices ...
