Extra Recovery Partitions by SC Tom
Running Win10 Home x64 on a system I built, but using a HDD from a Lenovo that is out of use. I used the same OS installation- it found and installed the drivers I needed for the new MB and CPU, and everything runs like nothing was changed. Opening Disk Management shows some extra partitions...

Are there any PC monitor goggles or glasses? by [email protected]
It seems that it would sometimes be convenient if there are some type of goggles we could hook up to a computer to do some quick tasks without having to have a monitor, especially if we have more than one computer and are just using one of them to back things up, or any similar situations. So far...

Win10 refuses to update due to Avira what is gone by [email protected]
For a while Windows update failed because it detected Avira, apparently not being on the whitelist for Spectre-Meltdown protection. Now had uninstalled Avira years ago. There were no Avira subdirectories anywhere. Now Avira released a registry cleaner tool to remove the crap it left behind on its...

CC Fraud (a sad story) by Flasherly[_2_]
Not sure, bit over my head, how that applies to some of the "other" sites, say, as opposed to Amazon or Ebay. No doubt a real fun job for law enforcement. It appears to look, apart from an acceptable allowance and statistical abstracts for continuing to work within a present state of embezzlement...

BIOS setting for "Boot from CD" by SC Tom
This is kind of a follow-up to "Spontaneous Shutdown/Reboot", but a different subject; hence the new subject line. After still having the reboots about every week to 10 days, and swapping out everything except the MB and APU, I decided to try a new MB. I bought a BioStar A68MD...

troubleshootting question about keyboard by Yes[_2_]
I have a MS ergonomic keyboard (PS/2) I've been using for quite a few years now. Until a few days ago, it worked as expected. However, now the OS (Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit) does not recognize it. I have not changed my hardware nor have I added/removed any software. My USB mouse works. When I enter...

Crown C-D vrs ART C-A/B by Flasherly[_2_]
Difficult to cede the ART the better, although, both with a tube buffer for the input, the differences had me scrambling over rolling what stock I have: GE, one below the 5-star broadcasting standards, and two, circa Soviet military, similar class variants. I went back to the GEs, even though,...

Class ABDH by Flasherly[_2_]
Don't make 'em to last. Supposed studio-grade ART amp, two models, which I'm glad I didn't buy the more powerful of the two. It has a characteristic output heat difference: one channel's output transformers are hotter than the other. I noticed the heat discrepancy from day one, when I first...

The Biggest Mistake in Windows 7 and such, Task manager does notfocus on harddisk performance ! by [email protected]
It's time to discuss and inform you of what has been bothering me for quite some time now. It's how Windows/The Task Manager presents the "performance of the computer". In my daily usage it's not the CPU or the Memory usage which decides the experience. It's mostly the harddisk and the constant...
