  • What is the best soundcard for your computer?

    I purchased a computer that sound card sucks.... I'm not sure if the card is built into the motherboard or not... Would an external sound card solve the issue?

    Okay. I’ve been literally doing this for 18hrs so anything helps. I bought an SSD to upgrade my HDD and am trying to install windows on it. I have a USB with the windows setup in it. All other drives are unplugged so I already did that the sector is 4K on this one and my HDD is 512 so I can’t clone it. Whenever I am selecting a Drive to install windows on I select it and it says it cannot install on it because it cannot be partitioned. When I create a partition it says it cannot be installed because the system may not have access to it. I already changed the bios to ahci so I know that’s not the issue I’ve seen countless of YouTube videos and non have solved my problem. The drive can be read by my computer and I know it’s not doa. Anything helps thanks!

  • Difference between HDD and SSD storage - laptops.?

    I currently use a laptop with a 1TB SATA HDD, and have been noticing lots of speed defects with the laptop, along with a couple other issues that have led me to decide to go purchase a new laptop.

    I currently use a laptop with a 1TB SATA HDD, and have been noticing lots of speed defects with the laptop, along with a couple other issues that have led me to decide to go purchase a new laptop. I have my eye on one that has a PCIe NVMe SSD. Upon looking it up on Google, this tends to be the better option when looking for speed while sacrificing storage (I prefer speed over storage space as I don’t need much storage). Now, excluding the storage size and speed of the drive itself, what other things would I expect from using an SSD instead of a HDD? Will updates, Windows, and most apps all work the same way? Like, Microsoft Excel - there’s a difference between Windows and Macintosh, but there shouldn’t be a difference between a Windows HDD and a Windows SSD, correct? Last question: what do you prefer? Thanks in advance

  • Do I record to HDD or SSD?

    Best answer: The main thing that wears out an SSD is writing data. Using a screen recorder constantly writes data (usually about 2.1 MB/s for the one I'm using) to the drive that the videos are stored on. It might not sound like much, but it adds up over time. A mechanical hard drive, on the other hand, is mainly worn out... show more
    Best answer: The main thing that wears out an SSD is writing data. Using a screen recorder constantly writes data (usually about 2.1 MB/s for the one I'm using) to the drive that the videos are stored on. It might not sound like much, but it adds up over time. A mechanical hard drive, on the other hand, is mainly worn out by turning on and off and writing data doesn't affect it as much as it would with an SSD. And since the amount of data being written at once isn't that much, any modern SSD or HDD would easily be able to handle it without a noticeable impact on performance.

  • I want to buy a printer. I don’t have internet/WiFi. I do however have data and somewhat of a hotspot. Can I still use a printer?

    I would also like some printer recommendations that are compatible and have a decent price on ink.

    Hi! I'm comparatively technology illiterate :) I have an old laptop with a broken screen that i'd like to get some files off of- of course with a broken screen I can't transfer to an external drive so it looks like I need to pull out the hard drive and get a caddy to be able to read the drive. My questions are: I thought I'd visit you toob to learn how to remove the old hard drive. It seems like its probably a delicate procedure- are there any common pitfalls or rules of thumb for that job? It seems like there are different kinds and sizes of caddy- how do I determine what kind of caddy I need for my old hard drive? Should I remove the hard drive first and then get the caddy, or visa versa (if it matters)? After I have the hard drive out of the old laptop do I need to store it in a certain way? Is there usually software needed for the caddy to "run" or "read" the extracted hard drive, or is it pretty much a File Explorer cut/paste operation?

  • How to clean a PC hdmi port?

    Best answer: Along with the compressed air, look in the makeup aisle in a local department store. You will find small flat sponges/swabs for applying or removing makeup. Add a little alcohol to the swab and they will fit in the HDMI port to clean the contacts.

    Hi, so I have an old laptop (about 7 years old) that finally gave up about a month ago. Unfortunately I have somehow lost or thrown away the charger lead, and the laptop won t turn on at all because it s battery is broken. I don t care about using it because I plan to throw it out and I have a new laptop. But it leaves me unable to delete the hard drive or anything else on it. Would it still be safe to just take it to a recycling centre? Ps: I did delete my files just off documents, downloads and etc but is that enough?

  • Can a MacBook early 2008 be updated? If so, how?

    Best answer: Yes it can updated to macOS 10.7.5 (Lion) (named changed from OS X) but iMessage requires macOS 10.8 (Mountain Lion). macOS apps on a MacBook aren't like iOS apps on an iPhone, though there is an App Store.

    As far as going online that MacBook is capable of doing so.

On others, all the images look blurry. Then on some sites, only some of the images load properly and the others are blurry. I've tried this in several different browsers; same issue. I'm confused. I do have a slower internet connection. So, perhaps that's the issue? Any help or advice would be appreciated.

    Remove bottom cover and clean out the insides. If no tools or skills, get a helper who knows how or take to a repair shop.
    Once cleaned, follow what Huntah says. I do, plus I use a small USB powered fan box to make air flow faster from the grill where air comes out from fan inside. Only $14. I buy Walsoon or Lanyi brand, but many others are available on Amazon or Ebay. Makes a 30*F drop in internal temp.

    She told me that she wants to use it for a seminar. I just don't wanna give my laptop. So can you give me some excuses. I told her that it's personalised and I don't want to change the password and the password is personal etc but I didn't exactly tell her no, cause I don't want to be rude.

I also got a new power connection for it to handle the few upgrades I got. I hooked everything up, the motherboard, the CPU, the graphic card as well as the hard drives. It is recieving power (the motherboard is lighting up as it does when it gets power) but when I try to hit the power button it wont turn on. I was also told it may be the motherboard battery itself and replaced that as well.
