EPSON XP830 Problem by [email protected]
Darn! I really like this Epson XP830 AIO. It is printing just fine, but now, suddenly, it will not scan sheets via its ADF. Even a single 8.5X11 sheet jams half-way thru the ADF on the top. Anyone else have/had this problem? If so, how did you deal with it? I should add that it scans single...

Q: 3rd monitor on docking staton? by x13
Paul: WOW !! I thought somebody might reply, but you gave me a whole moderlode of info! Thanks a lot!! I sort of knew splitting a dual-link DVI into 2x HDMI's probably wouldn't work as they are different technologies and therefore use different signals/resolutions, but it was a nice idea... I'll...

nVidia GPU reccomendadtion please. by ~misfit~[_16_]
I'm running an ATI HD7770 (with a QX9650 CPU) but the game I play is getting more and more complex. Also apparently it's better optimised for nVidia cards rather than ATI / AMD. So I need an affordable card that doesn't draw (much) more power than the HD7770 (~120w). Obviously it should be...

Keyboard Problem by [email protected]
I have inherited a HP PC 2026 that is working great even with W10. But it seems to have a keyboard problem that I do not know how to overcome. When I boot up, I see 'keyboard error' flash on the screen at the start of boot. Other than that the keyboard works fine when W10 is up and running. ...

"Ethical" Printer? by ~misfit~[_16_]
I've just junked yet another inkjet printer for parts (PSU mainly) and, as with the last one I see that there is more ink in the silicone tubes that go to the waste sponge and dried into the sponge itself than ever went onto paper during the ~2 years and ~3 sets of carts. How do they get away...

friend needs new laptop, recommendations? by Mike S
My buddy needs a new laptop, his is over 6 yrs old, runs out of RAM and slows down often, and crashes when more than 2GB RAM is installed! A computer shop spent 2 hrs with him trying to install more RAM, then get it working again when it crashed each time. Due to its age we think it's smart to...
