How can I stop worrying about this?

  • Computer Problems!?

    Best answer: If you re not comfortable getting into a computer to check it out - and all-in-ones are trickier than standard desktops, quite honestly - I d do two things: 1. Remove whatever access covers it gives you with the power off (probably for memory) and make sure everything s seated tightly. 2. Take it to a repair shop.... show more

    If it were a standard desktop I d encourage you to pop it open and check for loose cables, cards that came loose, etc. An all in one? You re better taking it in.

  • I need a new computer. My current one is slow and past its prime. Should I get a Mac or PC? Please give the pros/cons of both in detail.?

    Best answer: You'll probably end up spending a ton on a new computer then decide to start using a Tablet like everyone else. You have no idea how many people I've seen make the switch after they bought a laptop or a desktop. My first suggestion is to think about which interface you'd prefer the most. Do you want something with a 4k or 5k screen? Laptop? Are you a power user?

    You need a new computer for what?

    -Gaming is virtually non-existent on a Mac. If you're going to play games then do yourself a HUGE favor and get a PC.

    -Video editing can go either way

    -Both are great for school and basic office work.

    -I don't generally recommend iMacs to people unless they have a specific reason. The hardware used in a Mac is the same as a PC. Apple uses the same Intel processors, same RAM, same Storage drives. MAC-OS is a little more streamlined and runs lighter than Windows, but then again so does Ubuntu. The specific reason I rarely recommend a Mac is because you're paying a Premium for it.

    I put Ubuntu on an old HP that I bought in 2006 and it works great for a basic websurfing and streaming device. People knock Windows for running heavy but they kind of have to because 95% of hackers target Windows based computers.

    -The main drawback of a PC is one of it's greatest strengths. Cheapness. I'm writing this post on a $500 laptop with a Core i5 that didn't function properly until I swapped out the standard Hard Drive in favor of a SSD. People say 8gb is enough and it might be if all you're doing is watching Youtube videos one at a time. P2P sharing killed the RAM so I had to upgrade to 16gb. RAM goes fast if you're not careful.

    Here is the paradox..................
    Cheap laptops and those cheap SFF desktops use the cheapest components the manufacturer can find. These cheap computers are more likely to break, run slow, or have ineffective cooling. You have to have a decent amount of tech knowledge to work around this. So the average user decides to pay $1200 for an iMac that has the same level of hardware as a $600 midrange PC. On the other hand you could have bought a higher quality PC made with better components for the same price as the IMac, with the exception being the $1200 PC is going to be a lot more powerful in terms of performance.

    What I suggest doing is going to the store or somehow trying out MAC-OS for yourself. If the MAC-OS feels right for you and it more than suits your needs then by all means get one. You're going to have to live with whatever computer you buy for the next 5 to several years. One thing you could do is buy a used 2011 iMac that has a 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 CPU. These 2011 iMacs should still run Great. You could try it for a year and it you fall in love with it you could buy a new one then either gift or sell the used one. Although, a 2011 iMac would still have a few years left in it if you're a Typical user.

    STAY AWAY from SFF and All in One computers. An all in one iMac may be okay but avoid an All-In-One PC at all costs. These are very unreliable, if the screen breaks then it's a goner, and upgrades are extremely limited. Upgrades are also limited in Small Form Factor PC's. They are never very powerful and overheating can become an issue.

    BTW, if you have a desktop PC that you bought in mid 2011 or later, there are upgrades you can make that would make it run good as new. You'd obviously need to have a decent level of tech skill to pull off and implement these upgrades. CPU technology has NOT come a long way since 2011, and in fact it's become a joke. At least Intel and AMD are trying to add more cores to their processors. Hopefully this will shake things up.

    Hey, so i've been having this CMOS battery failure for the past couple of months and the PC kept on running except that i had to fix the date all the time. Last day, the PC force shut down.I restarted it to find that the system isn't reading my SATA HDD. I tried connecting the SATA properly and re changed the HDD's SATA with the CD-Drive's SATA but the HDD is still not being read while the CD-Drive works perfectly fine. The system even loads with the bootloader as a CD-Rom. So,what do you think is causing this ? Is the HDD dead ? Do you think it'll help if I change the CMOS Battery ?

    Best answer: Windows is installed on the hard drive, not the motherboard....

    The big question on MOBO replacement is the LICENSE. Meaning will the new MOBO cause you to lose your activation? Well the answer depends on whether you upgraded from an OEM windows version or whether you started with a retail version, neither of which you provided in your question.

    So the best thing to offer you is for you to read this link from Microsoft that explains the license. Basically, if you have a retail copy of Win 10, not the upgrade, then you won't lose your license. If you upgraded from an OEM copy of Windows (7 or 8) to Win 10, then you license doesn't carry forward with the new MOBO. It's ALL explained below:

There's a six-pin port on the motherboard (all in a row, not square) and the closest thing I could find on the PSU was a 4-pin. I can't seem to find any adapters online. Again, these are 4 and 6 pins all in a row. Any help would be appreciated. Tried to attach pics but it won't let me
