Moving a pre-installed os? by Davej
Just ordered a new pc but now think I might want to change out the SSD that it comes with for a larger SSD. Problem is that win10 will be on the original SSD. Can this be moved? Thanks.

What kind of USB connector is this? by [email protected]
I bought a US Robotics 56K USB External Fax-modem V.92 Model 5633A on ebay without the USB cable. The plug on the rear of the modem is NOT a standard USB connector. It's almost square and fairly large. I will need to buy a cable on ebay for this, but I am not sure what to look for. Is there a name...

Windows 10 can swallow total hardware change? by [email protected]
I have avoided most versions of Windows. I recall with older versions, if you took a Windows hard drive and plugged it in to a different PC, it would faff about detecting new hardware, and then either BSOD or complain too much hardware had changed, so require re-activation. Now I found a PC in a...

Windows 7 ultimate may contain "sector allocation bug". by [email protected]
Lately Windows 7 on my computer is misbehaving. Windows 7 is under a lot of stress from Firefox and it's many tabs that are open. Firefox may also cause some kind of corruption in the audio driver of creative labs. Somehow this affects the sleep mode of windows 7. Windows 7 was configured to...

cyberpower 1500pfclcd UPS by Seymore4Head[_2_]
Yesterday the power went off. My computer is on a UPS, but the computer also went off. When the power came back on, the computer didn't. The UPS has a red reset button on the back. When I push it, nothing happens. It has some very loose play. I tried pushing it very hard, but no reset. Can I...

Well, I got the new version 57 of FireFox today. New and Improved with all new Quantum technology (whatever the crap that is). It is noticeably faster and has new color skins (blander, much blander). It appears that each webpage has its own process now plus a couple of more for good luck. ...

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...

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...
