  • If you turn up your computer volume too loudly, does it damage any part of the computer?

    Best answer: It can damage the speakers over long periods of time if you do it regularly. This isn't always the case though... it depends on the quality of the speaker and what kind of tolerance it has. Also, if you have an external speaker system with a built in amplifier, you can damage the amplifier over long periods of... show more
    Best answer: It can damage the speakers over long periods of time if you do it regularly. This isn't always the case though... it depends on the quality of the speaker and what kind of tolerance it has.

    Also, if you have an external speaker system with a built in amplifier, you can damage the amplifier over long periods of time.

    Aside from that, there is (for all intents and purposes) nothing else in the computer that's susceptible to damage based on the volume level.

  • If there is a power surge, will it affect the AC adapter AND the product, or just the AC adapter? 10pts for BEST ANSWER! WOOO!?

    Best answer: Usually electrical spikes destroy the AC Adapter and the diodes in the Adapter stop the current from anymore damage. However if it was hit by lightning or a very big surge....I would just replace the product. I've never been able to salvage any device that has been hit by lightning. It always snow balls into... show more

However if it was hit by lightning or a very big surge....I would just replace the product. I've never been able to salvage any device that has been hit by lightning. It always snow balls into having to replace more than one or two parts that was originally planned.

  • How to fix CPU that doesn't turn on?

    How to fix CPU that doesn't turn on?

    My brother ****** my CPU. He disassembled it but he didn't assembled it back. I haven't used this CPU for a year now, but I have successfully assembled it back. But it won't turn on. Am I missing some parts or am I wrong with the wiring? Please don't tell me to buy a new CPU.

  • How good is a Seagate SV35 1TB 7200 6GB/s 64MB cach Hard Drive and how long will it last?

    Best answer: It's designed for video surveillance recording which is probably good for longevity. I will note it is a discontinued drive and old inventory can get questionable.
    It is replaced by the Seagate SkyHawk 1TB Surveillance Hard Drive 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive ST1000VX005

  • How Often do I need to take a break from my computer? I use my PC a lot for studies and work how important is it I take breaks? frequency?

    Best answer: I recently read a break concept that makes a lot of sense. It was called: 20 - 20 -20. Simply stated; every 20 minutes you should look at something 20 feet away from you for a minimum of 20 seconds. This takes your vision off the bright screen for enough time for your eyes to relax and refocus since we all tend... show more
    Best answer: I recently read a break concept that makes a lot of sense. It was called: 20 - 20 -20. Simply stated; every 20 minutes you should look at something 20 feet away from you for a minimum of 20 seconds. This takes your vision off the bright screen for enough time for your eyes to relax and refocus since we all tend to stare at our computer screens. ADDITIONALLY ... check this out! If you have Windows 10 and have already installed the Creators Update there is a great new feature embedded in it that is called the "Night Light". What it does is allow you to reduce the amount of blue light, which causes eye strain and headaches, and allows you to introduce some red light to reduce the glare. It's an absolutely great feature. Do a search on it and you'll find lots of info on it. Hope this helps some.

  • What's faster, CPU speed or the amount of cores? Also, why are we still only at like 4ghz?

    Best answer: 4GHz is nearing the bounds of physics. Electricity can only travel at the speed of light. To travel from CPU to something like ram, and get an reply, the ram has to be within 3 or 4 inches (electrically), or closer. A 3GHz clock can send a signal about 10cm (about 4 inches in a copper trace on the board) before the next clock cycle starts. Thus, to get a reply before that, you have to place the ram closer, or you have to wait extra clock cycles for the ram to respond. 4Ghz is about 7.5cm distance.....
    It gets to a point, where even the time for the circuits to have electrons travel in the CPU itself start to reach timing boundaries, based on the laws of physics - the speed of light.
    Hence, they create multi-core processors, or you design a motherboard that can run multiple CPUs tied together to share the CPU load (to make it faster).
    You may see the odd system with clocking a bit faster than 4GHz, but in some cases, the time to external components like ram, will take two clock cycles instead of one. That is, you may be able to make the CPU faster, but it will have to wait for things like ram to respond anyway, slowing the entire system.
    It gets more complicated than that, the clock cycles are just examples (some system use multiple clock cycles to access ram) but that is the general reason why processors cannot just keep increasing clock speeds. Heat is also a factor, but that can be addressed by newer, smaller die sizes and lower voltages. There is a limit to how low a voltage one can go, that still allow solid state circuits to run in a CPU. Thus, there are limits there as well as limits by laws of physics (of which heat from electron flow is one of them also)
