Hard Disk Slow Down After Image Recovery by John B. Smith
Today my XP went off the tracks. I think it booted normally but when I used Agent and Eudora to get hearders and check mail at the same time, something got messed up bigtime. Agent seemed to freeze, but did work after a while. Tried a reboot, things got stalled when my bat was saving email. I...

Razzle Dazzle Trackball by Flasherly[_2_]
Good deal just got hot in my little hands. Celebrations. Amazon private NYC dealer for a new -Not Refurbished- Marble Trackman. Cost me $22, which is normally closer to $30 for most (including tax which I escaped). Four buttons easy-pie assignable/programmable to Logitech's limits of...

Hello, One of my harddisks just failed ? I am not sure yet, but it remains undetected, or partially damage to motherboard. I think what happened was as follows: 1. I may have had haste, I pushed a flash/ssd card into the card reader, but it was stuck in diagonal. Because it has long metal...

Automatic wire strippers! by John Doe[_9_]
A few months ago, a friend let me use his IRWIN Self-Adjusting Wire Strippers. Sold! I figured they would be well over $50 but they are less than $20. Should have bought one when they were first available. Wish I had had one decades ago. Would have saved so much time and tremendous amount of...

Intel "best generation" Core slogan by [email protected]
I saw a consumer electronics store advertising **** with: Intel best generation Core CPU eh? Well they seemed to given up on tic-toc and have Coffee Lake, Kaby Lake and Skylake_X selling concurrently. So is Joe Sixpack going to shun a Skylake-X think it is only a 6?

Ping Paul - Old CMOS issue? by MrTsquare
Evening, Paul. Acouple of years ago you helped me understand (alittle) how the ASUS Motherboard in my relatively new ASUS build might contribute to the premature failure of the CMOS battery. Based on your advise and my unwillingness to try to return my new motherboard for this...

is CPU temperature 24 Celsius credible? by [email protected]
I found a nice-looking PC left out for trash collection, took it home and tested it. It has Corsair water cooler (perhaps H60 model) and i7-3770 CPU, with 77 W for TDP. When I go to monitor in BIOS, it shows only 24 degrees for CPU temperature. Often when I have gone to BIOS hardware monitor in...

Threadripper vs Epyc (frequencies) by [email protected]
16-core 1950x has base 3400 MHz, but the 32-core Epyc 7601 is only 2200 MHz Now for same power, then I would expect Threadripper to have 3100 MHz base. I realise the Epyc is made to flog all cores 24 hours a day, and is going to be in pizza box with tiny fans. So is it that Threadripper is for...

CyberDecks by Se7en[_2_]
I've been learning about people making their own "Pre-Matrix CyberDecks" out of used computer parts and old Commadore64 cases. Example: https://n-o-d-e.net/cyberdeck64.html Has anyone made their own cyberdeck? I plan to go dumpster diving for old parts soon and hope to make one. Not a lot of...

Display dropped out -- ohhh myyyy gawd! by Flasherly[_2_]
Returned to find the monitor displaying "no input". Rebooted and, like an un-sync'd modem, it reestablished itself. DVI connector on it for the past month. Prior, just VGA, which this new MB apparently labels (under) D-Sub/DVI-D, although it has both a normal 15-pin VGA and the later, squarer...

oh, yeah -- more programs is for more cores by Flasherly[_2_]
Updated SpeedFan, but then decided to switch back to the older version, and disable CPU temp reporting;. . .the newer version, I find, has a nasty programming protocol for calling home -- nasty inasmuch in how calling home compounds one another, initially, for as well detecting the hardware ports...

Hello, I am in the process of trying to design a Dream PC for 2017. AMD Threadripper is something I would want. ASRock x399 motherboards is something I would want for the motherboard overheat protection circuitry. NOCTUA cooler for TR4 socket is probably also something I would want. Asus...

MyDefrag-v4.3.1 And be sure it's not an earlier version. I've "differences" with this new MB. I'm not sure if it's a drive conflict issue from MB resource loads (provided for Windows by the MB manufacturer on CD). This is a Windows install from a same MB, different model at an earlier...

Nice - HQ encode, 8-core bulldozer by Flasherly[_2_]
Got around to a decent video encode, something I'd have prior, with certain likelihood, run into issues, at the least with further audio processing I also run. Quadcores then, octals now. Distribution across eight cores can also be seen favorably, a token estimate at 20% processing demands, on...
