Why are inkjet printers faster in black? by Jimmy Wilkinson Knife
Why are inkjet printers faster in black than in colour? Surely black is just one of the inks, like cyan, magenta, and yellow. Since the heads are independant, why would black only be faster? Is there a ****ty processor in the printers that's slower than the 4 heads combined? -- A woman sends...

Intel onboard GPU conflicting with CPU power by Jimmy Wilkinson Knife
Is it true that if you max out the GPU part of an Intel processor at the same time as all the normal cores, it can't do them all at once? I run Boinc which can do calculations on both at once. And if I use all the CPU cores, the GPU part goes about a 5th of the speed. I guess the only other...

overheat under Memtest by [email protected]
I checked out an old PC - Core 2 quad. About 2 minutes of Memtest and the CPU fan is going full scream. After 5 minutes, the heat sink is hot to touch, so I turned it off. I believe Memtest only uses 1 core?? The heatsink is not clogged with dust, and it is a HP craputer, with BIOS that doesn't...

GTX950 GPU, Windows10 by Norm X[_2_]
Hi, Task manager tells me that Winows10 is using my GTX950 at all times. GPU usage is maybe 4% with 0.8/4GB memory in use. Naturally I am pleased. But what tasks could the OS assign to the GPU other than graphics? I noticed that GPU use went way up when I did a large file copy. I use RDP, which...

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...

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...

I have a 500VA Patriot (brand) UPS that has been working fine for many many years. I have a "mini" computer hooked to it, one that uses a "mini" PSU mounted above the CPU which is also used to cool the CPU. It is very loud, so I decided to re-case the machine and use a standard PSU and the...

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...
