cheapest ssd yet seen by Flasherly[_2_]
$33 for a 256G. Cheapest presence, rather a Kingston which specifically means 3-yr domestic US warrantee. Maybe an 800 Kingston no. with a human to answer. No DRAM buffering, old rebadged Toshiba memory, old Pison controller. Material is total bottom of the barrel. Yet... Huge sales volume for...

faarghk - I hate notebooks by [email protected]
A relative showed me a notebook: they had tried to remove the hard disk, but had lifted the end more than necessary and busted the SATA connector. It was not repairable. Then I vaguely recalled Toshiba made a premium model with 2 hard drives. I removed another cover and there was a void the size...

Didn't do so spectacularly great with x4 Phenom II by Flasherly[_2_]
Not on wiser averages, to base my choice of purchase, although fresh into it being closer to there wasn't time for a more informed choice. Low-cost dollar, including the Chinese/Asian market is around a third less than I paid. FX-8100 - FD8100WMW8KGU Looks likely a most-common budget candidate....

WinSetupFromUSB & New BIOS by Flasherly[_2_]
Didn't notice anything with HIRENs & WinSetupFromUSB, but went to install a Win7 ISO and the USB manager kicked into a second proviso to access a BIOS id on USB-HDD -- something about the BIOS reporting it for a Floppy. Also never encoutered that on the other MBs, (always the first), just this new...

why different BIOS for Windows and Linux? by [email protected]
I got a mainboard out of an Acer X3995, I wished to recycle. First had to figure out the pins for the front panel switch and LEDs. Going to Acer website, they have 4 BIOS to download: 2 for Win8, 1 for Win7 and 1 for linux. Why so? I don't think other manufacturers specify a restrictive BIOS.

USB stick that's bootable has TWO names by RayLopez99
You know what I mean. The boot sector on the USB, which was formatted with "Rufus" freeware to make it bootable, is tiny, a few hundred kB, but has a name. Then the main USB, which is large, say 15 GB, has another name. Reformatting each USB will wipe them clean, but how do you 'combine' them...

SSD and sleep mode? by Mike[_33_]
I got this email today claiming that sleep mode is hard on a SSD. I could understand that hibernate is hard on a SSD, but sleep mode? My system sleeps maybe a dozen times a day. It's asleep 90% of the time. Save the planet and all... Is there any truth to this? Or is it just a scare tactic...

How to clone from a current SSD to one previously used as the boot drive? by Charlie Hoffpauir
I have an Intel SSD that was my old boot drive on my system. I cloned it to a new Samsung SSD with no problems. However, since the operating system is still on the old Intel, my software won't recognize it to use it as a cloned backup of the new Samsung SSD. So how do I remove the operating system,...

Question about the win 10 update data loss by Charlie Hoffpauir
It was my understanding that the data loss was limited to data stored in the C: users (name of user) Documents folder. Anyone know if that's correct? I happen to have a few files there, but haven't noticed anything missing.

WPA3 by Davej
So WPA2 is broken and WPA3 will probably require new hardware? Why can't they at least generate a firmware "band-aid" for WPA2 ?

Q/A Why Is it Two Hands are better to grip your Butt Cheeks by Flasherly[_2_]
When it's not apparently enough to just to backup data, in the event of hardware failure, two computers are better than one. I replaced my blown-up computer. The power company replaced their Pole Pig. We are both sad victims of lightning. My cost is now $120 for new CPU, MEM, & MB. Less than...
