any alternative to Antec spot coolers? by [email protected]
I have used them twice to blow on some thermal problem. I don't like their method of attaching to one of the mainboard screws. This seems rather rickety if somebody else could move the PC case not knowing what is rigged up inside. Instead I drilled a hole in the bottom or back of the case to...

Best file system for a 64gb micro-SDHC card? by JakeD
Hi all, I bought a micro-SDHC card (64gb) to use in my Windows 7 PC and my XP laptop, as a convenient way of storing and transporting files between the two machines. The card came formatted as FAT. Would it be worth re-formatting it as exFAT - or even NTFS? Also: Both machines have an SDHC...

Interpreting Gigabyte LGA775 mobo specs by [email protected]
I'm looking for a Gigabyte LGA775 board that has among other things a PCIe 2.0 or higher slot for the video card. I've been looking at specs on their boards and notice there are some that in the overview specify PCIe 2.0 but some for example this GA-EP43T-UD3L...

What's wrong with this idea? by Davej
Since we now have pc's that can boot off of anything and in addition we have SSD drives and all sorts of other choices... why can't Microsoft make an OS and an appropriate drive that would be immune to any type of malware infection? You could have a read-only boot drive dedicated to the OS. The...

Cheaper Windows 7 yet? by Laurence[_3_]
Now that Win8 seems to be established, can we expect to see some cheaper W7s available for home builders? Know of any? Still running XP on all desktops, but recent laptop acquisition came with 7 - I like it, but prohibitively expensive to buy for my desktops. Anyone?

Water cooling? by Davej
This is beginning to seem like the way to go for my next big desktop. Any advice? Maybe a flow sensor to plug into the cpu fan socket so that the MB can sense when it isn't working?

PCIe graphics slow (bad lanes?) by [email protected]
I was checking out an old PC (Intel 965 chipset) and drawing the display seems rather slow. I swapped the graphics card with another aged PC of same chipset and RAM and CPU speed. The slowness seems to be the mainboard, not due to graphics card. I checked BIOS settings, and couldn't see...

Windows 8 file manager, undu file operation? by John Doe
Did Microsoft nuke the very useful feature of being able to undu file operations in its file manager? Another thing it was useful for is hovering over the undu selection to see (in the status bar) exactly what your last operation was.

I have a older ASUS CUV4X motherboard that I'm using in a pc in an attempt to get videos to play. After fresh install of Windows XP, using several different drives, I cannot seem to get a video playing in either of the three media players I tried. Not DVDs or video files. At best I might get a...

Speech recognition, Naturally Speaking vs Windows Speech Recognition by John Doe
Looks like the Dragon NaturallySpeaking text-to-speech utility does not read webpage material unless it is in a text box. That's pretty much useless, so I'll need a separate TTS program. But having real speech recognition again certainly will be a relief, after many months in the Windows...

IBM T22 CMOS Battery Connector by [email protected]
I was given an IBM T22 laptop about 4-1/2 years ago and it has been gathering dust ever since. I took it out and powered on, but there is a password set and so I decided to open it up and disconnect the main and back-up batteries following the instructions on page 60, 61, and 62 of the ThinkPad...
