  • What happens if someone hacks into my webcam?

    Best answer: They would be able to see what you are doing, perhaps see you typing passwords. They would see when you are online, might be able to track your banking or email or other activity.

  • Can buying a sata splitter make 2 WD 1tb hdds act as 1 2tb drive on 1 sata connector in dell c521? or do i need pci sata card?

    Best answer: I don't think that is possible. With SATA, I believe you can only have one device per SATA port. If you don't have any more SATA ports on your motherboard, you will need to buy a PCI-E SATA card. However, that in itself will not allow you to use 2 drives as a single drive under Windows, if that is your... show more

  • Is a graphics card all I need to solve this?

    Best answer: The GT 730 is a very old stand alone card. The GTX-730 would let your run three at a time, but, they would still not come close to what a 1060 does. Just to give you an idea how backwards your card is. The 1060 needs additional power - more than the 730. The 1060 will have a 6pin and 8 pin additional connectors... show more
    Best answer: The GT 730 is a very old stand alone card. The GTX-730 would let your run three at a time, but, they would still not come close to what a 1060 does. Just to give you an idea how backwards your card is.

    The 1060 needs additional power - more than the 730. The 1060 will have a 6pin and 8 pin additional connectors going to the power supply. This means you also need a power supply with those connections.

    The 1060 also need a pci-16 socket to run best. I am guessing your mother board is pci-8 perhaps.

    The big lag issue these days - is the time it takes to get data off the hard drive. If you still have an older mechanical drive - that is going to add a ton of lag.

    You would be better off with a new computer. You probably need a new power supply, solid state hard drive, and 1060 card to make your world better. The additional cost of a new mother board, faster cpu and nicer, faster memory will be the icing on the cake. You will be shocked how much the world has changed. If you want to save yourself a ton of money in the future - carefully choose your new computers motherboard. You want one that has extra slots for two video cards...…. this way come 2024 you can pop in a second video card in SLI and still keep gaming big time for a few more years. Choose the latest memory - and get what will get your by for today - two years from now when the price is just 1/3 you can pop in a ton of memory for little money. Pay attention to the hard drive speed - get a smaller M2 in 250gb for your OS and online games and a cheap mechanical 2TB for your files, photos, and regular games.

    The more you learn about computers - the more you might save in the long run.

    Good Luck

  • Does a microphone that requires phantom power need to be plugged into the power source first or can it be plugged into something else first.?

    Best answer: The mic must connect directly to the device that supplies phantom power.
    That can then connect to any other audio device, such as a USB audio interface, amp or mixing console.

    You can connect the mic to the VT3 then the bypass or mono out of that to the next piece of equipment.

    Best answer: there is limit on all sd cards (and SSDs) to how many times you can write to cell (when you "delete" a file you dont actually "delete" the data for that file - you remove the file name entry from the file system The data is still there but you cant access it any more - the cells containing the... show more
    Best answer: there is limit on all sd cards (and SSDs) to how many times you can write to cell

    (when you "delete" a file you dont actually "delete" the data for that file - you remove the file name entry from the file system The data is still there but you cant access it any more - the cells containing the data can now be overwritten when the file system decides to write to the cells

    If you "erase" or "shred" a file then the cells are filled with garbage but you only do this with an HDD - its not necessary with an sd card (wont go into the technical details of the difference between SD vs HDD when it comes to data cos its boring)

  • Installing motherboard drivers?

    Best answer: If you installed Windows 8 or Windows 10, it often comes with more built-in drivers for your network card compared to Windows 7.

    Best answer: If you installed Windows 8 or Windows 10, it often comes with more built-in drivers for your network card compared to Windows 7. So if you plug in an Ethernet cable and you get network access, then you should be good to go.
    However, if your NIC doesn't have any drivers installed, you'll want to go on a second computer to the motherboard's manufacturer page, look up your MOBO model number, and download all the drivers onto the second PC. On a flash drive, copy all of those downloaded drivers and then install them on your newly built PC.
