End result of mechanical 87-key by Flasherly[_2_]
Great keyboard, by all indications, after three weeks usage. The "blackness" ,10 measures or 1/6th a greater force of tactility, comparative to wider-used "blue" keys, is appreciable;- not as much for actual utility, as I suspect on speed tests the blues may have it, whereas the black would be...

limitation of SODIMMs (fewer pins)? by [email protected]
I was tearing down a HP all-in-one ****box, and noticed that it used SO-DIMMs, like a notebook. Now, these have 204 pins, versus 240 for desktop DIMMs. What is lost? Smaller maximum address space or data bandwidth?

Where can I get extra Hard Drive jumpers by [email protected]
Where can I get extra Hard Drive jumpers for IDE/PATA drives that need them? I've boughten drives from ebay, and they rarely include these jumpers.

What are "Refurbished" hard drives? by [email protected]
I often see "Refurbished" hard drives being sold on ebay. What do they refurbish? As far as I know, once a HDD has problems with the platters or heads, they are trash. About the only part that can be repaired or replaced is the circuit board, but how often do they go bad? (probably very seldom). So...

physical damage to PCIE slot[?] by [email protected]
I got a damaged PC: the back of the case had been whacked next to the video card. To remove the card, I had to straighten the back slots. Now it had been issuing beeps on startup meaning no VGA card detected. I tried 3 other cards in the slot, but still beeped at me. So then I tried the secondary...

IDE Harddrive cables by [email protected]
I was told that the IDE hard drives work better with the 80 wire cables than with the 40 wire ones. I know a guy who has a lot of this stuff and he gave me a few of the 80 wire cables. But there is a problem. All of the ones he gave me, have about 2.5 or 3 inches between the two plugs on the drive...

Scanning a document by Seymore4Head[_2_]

FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394 by [email protected]
Does anyone really use FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394. Or is that old technology? One of my computers had a card in it for this, and I never knew what it was for. It just said IEEE 1394 on it. I finally looked it up. Yet, I have never seen anything with those kind of plugs on it. Maybe this is just...

Weird floppy drive, How to connect it? by [email protected]
I bought a floppy drive on ebay, intending to replace the dead one in my old Win98 desktop computer. I did not know what I was getting as far as the cables. The drive itself is very thin, and I knew that when I bought it, but it's wide enough to fit in the drive bay, so I only thought there would...

Why do SATA drives have those tiny pin power plugs by [email protected]
It seems that since the beginning of computers, everything had Molex plugs and they worked fine. To use a SATA drive, I need an adaptor to convert to those tiny pins on the drive. I almost wonder how enough current can get thru those tiny pins. What gets me most, is why all those pins are needed....
