    Hi there. I've been trying to improve my computer's speed for a while now. I'm constantly cleaning its space and make sure not to be running a lot at the same time. I recently upgraded the RAM from 4GB to 8GB and haven't really noticed any difference. I have an HP Pavillion Slimline 409-314. I don't do any gaming, I use it for basic work things, such as web browsing and using Office programs such as Outlook and Excel. I recently ran a performance test via PassMark, I've attached the results it provided. Please someone help, the speed of my computer is starting to really frustrate me.

    My friend has important files on a pen drive, the problem is is that it don't work no-mo. In any PC I put it into, I get the same results. It malfunctions and it is not recognized by Windows. I researched this and the only solution I have found that may work is uninstalling and reinstalling the pen drive's drivers. The issue is that I don't know whether that will delete the data on the drive or not. Does anyone know whether it does? Or have other solutions?

  • What size fuse do I need for the PRD1050?

    I own a PRD1050 and I want to buy a fuse. If I am correct in my understanding then possible demand is 600W. It runs on 230V. Watts = Amps * Volts so.. Watts / Volts = Amps so... 600 / 230 = 2.61 Amps required for the fuse No such thing as a 2.61 amp fuse so I need a 3 amp fuse. Is this correct?

  • How can I unlock a free USB so I can write on it?

    How can I unlock a free USB so I can write on it?

    Before I start, I have a Mac. I picked up a free USB from this company. It has all its product information but I want to delete the whole USB so I can use it myself. However when I try to do this and erase the USB on disc utility, I am unable to do so as the USB is write only. Please tell me a way to get around this
