  • Are laptops capable of exploding and catching fire?

    Best answer: Yes, it's possible if the laptop has a poor quality battery, or a charging circuit that is poor quality or malfunctioning. Lithium Ion batteries can explode and catch fire if overcharged or if they develop an internal short circuit which builds up a ton of heat. Also, if the cells in the battery get punctured... show more

Lithium Ion batteries can explode and catch fire if overcharged or if they develop an internal short circuit which builds up a ton of heat. Also, if the cells in the battery get punctured and air gets in, the material can interact with the oxygen and spontaneously combust.

  • How to I stop getting computer interference on my FM radio?

    The interference is caused my having a laptop computer near to the radio. Yes, move the laptop, but that's not an option, nor is move the radio. Please don't suggest either of those! Also please don't suggest pull the computer mains lead out! That does solve the problem, but I'm trying to preserve the laptop battery when it's used at home! Sorry to be a bit awkward here! What I'm hoping is for ideas, maybe some sort of screen or shield device, but basically anything that works to remove the 'white noise' effect that happens when the radio is on & the laptop is on at the same time. The radio is large & shares a table with the laptop. If either could be moved elsewhere I would, but workable space is at a premium! Thanks for any help.

  • Why does my router work slow, mostly freezing everything on every mode besides 802.11b?

    I'm having trouble, when I try to change it, I barely can get it back working to 802.11b. When I change it to the other modes, it lags, mostly freezes and I can get it barely back working, at least on 802.11b

  • What should I look for in a computer?

    (2) RAM: DDR4; 16GBs

    (3) Storage: one SSD (120GBs) & one HDD (1TB) [← use the HDD for archival purposes; use the SSD for the OS and current work]

    (4) Video: Dedicated PCI-e video card with 4GBs onboard video memory

    (5) ODD: BluRay-capable burner

    (6) USB: (2) USB 2 ports; 2 USB 3 ports

    Without a doubt, the preceding specifications are currently overkill for what you've said you want to use it for, but in 5 years or less, they will be merely acceptable.

    So my laptop is pushing 6 years old. battery's shot, A few of the keys don't work (had to get a secondary keyboard) the headphone jack doesn't work, fans been a tiny bit rattly/vibrating (Not really a concerning level) and this past week i have been having issue with vidoes lagging/freezing/not playing/playing without sound etc. Even videos on my hard drive (so its not the internet, internet speed it great) other than that it runs really well. There aren't really any software issues, mostly hardware and its little things. but at 6 years old, who knows how long that will last. My work discount program sent a "sale" for 35 percent off lenovo laptops (thats what I have now and I love it) they have some really good deals to start with. They even offer financing. Problem is even with financing it will be a stretch affordability wise. I really don't have a lot of spare money. So I'm trying to decide wether or not I should take advantage now, or wait a few months and push the life of this one a little longer.

I tried some solutions of how to solve this issue by watching its YouTube tutorials and reading some tips on some websites, but none of them worked. My main question is, will it completely shut down my laptop even if I don't change the battery after it's warning?

    Best answer: My original Surface tablet can do both quite well, with a lot less horsepower than even that low-end Pentium puts out.

    If you aren't editing video or playing graphic-intensive games, it would be plenty of processor for basic computing tasks like web browsing, "media consumption" (the fancy term for watching videos) and home office work. It will fail miserably at Fortnight or PUBG, if you even know what those are, nor will it do you any good with Adobe Premiere and an hour of HD video. As long as you understand that, and it doesn't affect your use for the machine, it will work just fine.
