problem with audio - question by Yes[_2_]
I have an Asus B150-M-A mobo with an integrated graphics chip and Realtek ALC887 codec. I connect it via HDMI cable to my living room TV when I want to use the pc. It's worked very well for my needs (web surfing and anime videos). Today, the audio stopped working. The videos works. At first I...

USB2 screw-type HUB by Flasherly[_2_]
Garbage. Cheap, they all are except for the usual jerk-around for the usual money spent with four times less intelligence than it takes to figure, really, much else out. A politically shriveled Chinese market merged with Hong Kong now means 25% mark-up on domestic West Coast exclusions to...

Difficulty Assigning Drive Letters by John B. Smith
Last weekend I installed a new boot drive after months of intermittent problems. I used Macrium Reflect to image my two booting partitions onto the new drive. I was anticipating a huge fight but it went amazingly well. I bought a larger drive this time 1T. About half of it was left after I...

OOOHHH!! SCARY HALLOWEEN STORY!! Microsoft US election warning:Attackers hit Windows 10 Netlogon flaw by mail.zip2.in Anonymous Remailer
Microsoft has warned Windows 10 customers that it has received "a small number of reports" about attacks on its Netlogon protocol, which it patched in August. The Windows maker issued another alert on Thursday following its warning in September that attackers were exploiting the elevation of...

Logitech trackman by Flasherly[_2_]
Getting possibly more use out of the last one, going on somewhat past two years or the lower length of time they seem to wear down for me. Possibly better built, though I doubt it. Took this one once apart, where it showed improvement, and again today upon missing switch responses. The switch...

Why buying laptops is a bad deal long term (dead battery = unable toboot up) by RayLopez99
Against Paul's reservations a few years ago I bought a cheap i5 laptop (Dell Latitude) used on eBay and it's worked OK, except it powers off (sleep) every so often, randomly. I bought a new battery and it seemingly got even worse. I spent an hour or two playing around with settings for sleep and...

Macrium Reflect image restored to dissimilar x64 hardware does what?Paging Paul, Flasherly, Mr. Chang by RayLopez99
The scenario: I have a x64 bit Windows 10 machine that's a laptop with decent but 5+ year old hardware, e.g., an SSD but an Intel i5 chip with 4 GB RAM. I wish copy the Macrium Reflect image disc from this hardware to a tricked out, gaming type, state of the art tower PC with say the latest...

USB bad formatting error makes it unreadable...forever by RayLopez99
https://www.stellarinfo.com/blog/fix-usb-drive-not-formatted-error/ I've read the above and similar articles and it does not work to fix my USB (which I pulled out while it was writing data and/or formatting it from FAT32 to NTFS etc etc, and in any event is dead). I think this USB is shot. My...

Crucial 128G not software by Flasherly[_2_]
Marked difference after I tore it up. Only a few times so far used but the difference looks to be a decisive change in characteristics for the better. The model is advertised "Slider", where there's a thick plastic sleeve integrated to slide over the unit and cover the male connection point. ...

Crucial 128G flastick USB problem could be software by Flasherly[_2_]
Seems it will pick-up its own USB identity, not just sit there for long periods trying to access itself, (a bright LED lite on it helps me see when there's that issue), by first sticking in another flashstick. Something that looks to affect software resetting or hanging up on a cache issue after...

Apparent PSU problem by Larc[_3_]
I have an older extra PC (ASUS H97M Plus motherboard - i3-4150 CPU - 12GB Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 RAM) that I use for Windows 10 Insider Preview beta builds. It has a PS/2 keyboard that I've been using to start the system (CTRL+ESC). That start method stopped working a couple of weeks ago and I...

pr problem by Yes[_2_]
Within the last few weeks, the screen will go blank literally for a second or two when I'm using my pc. I'll be at a web site, and all of a sudden the screen blanks (turns dark), no error messages. A second or two later, the image reappears as if nothing had happened. AFAICT, there is no...

Sentenced to be burnt by USB by Flasherly[_2_]
Bought a Crucial 128G USB flashdrive, possibly for what a 256G SDD now costs. Not that old, at least for me, but obviously not new. Four to five years' of usage is the guess. Now there's intermittent connection issues, repeatedly re-seating the drive until an access light goes from long...

PC erratic behaviour by Peter Johnson[_5_]
I've been having problems with my homebuilt PC for a couple of weeks. All the components have been replaced this year. The last to be changed were the RAM (32Gb Crucial) and the PSU. The problems seem to coincide with a BIOS update on the Asus Prime X570 PRO mb. I can't revert to to the earlier...

Magnetronics by Flasherly[_2_]
Tore apart a microwave, almost. They don't want you in there, so there's some nasty screw head shapes and sizes. Some, a few for that purpose only, and the rest even a assembly line couldn't stomach. Had to use a small prybar to lift a couple where they weren't so bad unscrewing with...
