Broken SATA plug on motherboard by [email protected]
I wanted to add a second hard drive to my computer. It's an older desktop, but works well using XP. When I looked inside, I found the plastic housing around the second SATA plug is gone. (This is the Data cable plug). The metal pins are still there, sticking out of the m-board. I've dont a lot of...

Google class is going to be the best invention evaaar ! by [email protected]
The reason why it "failed" is exactly why it is going to "succeed". The unfair people in the cafees didn't like it. And that is exactly why it is going to "succeed". Because the world needs it ! This will illiminate unfair behaviour.

New uwave MAMR HDD technology for mechanical HDD to give 40TB drives by RayLopez99
Notice the fact that mechanical hard drives last longer than SSD, a fact that's undisputed. I ended up getting a SSD for my personal computers but I backup religiously. However, when SSDs fail, they fail fast, unlike SMART monitored HDDs which often give a day or week's...

Due to the overwhelming response in Duck****er's defense... :o( by Fritz Wuehler[_5_]
Due to the overwhelming response in his defense, I find myself stunned and amazed. The hundreds - nay, thousands of posts defending the faggot ass-rimming queer known as Raid aka Dustbin Cook have given me pause. I am near faint from the ardour, passion and total indignation with which those posts...

always check **** before you discard it by [email protected]
I have an old Core 2 PC, no longer worth using. Took the side off it, and saw crappy old graphics card, so dragged it into the garage for trip to recycling yard. But my partner advised me this was a PC she got from a former workplace that shut down, and it had extra disk drives in it. So looked...

Laptop Keyboard by cropduster
I have this Lenovo T61p (actually two of them) which I pulled out of the trash. Put in a HD and 3GB RAM and Linux Mint and it works pretty well, except that the 'h' key doesn't respond unless I really jackhammer it, and then I copy/paste it into gedit (Linux notepad) for further use. I figured...

base clock only 96.6 MHz by [email protected]
I was given a dead PC: if you pressed the on button, the fans just flicked half a turn then stopped. The mainboard does not have a standby power LED. I changed the power supply - same thing. So then I removed CMOS battery. It only showed 0.2 volts. I hope it is not one of those faults that...

Automatic wire strippers! by John Doe[_9_]
A few months ago, a friend let me use his IRWIN Self-Adjusting Wire Strippers. Sold! I figured they would be well over $50 but they are less than $20. Should have bought one when they were first available. Wish I had had one decades ago. Would have saved so much time and tremendous amount of...
