Gigabyte BIOS Upgrade F11b BETA solved a lot of diffuse hardware problems by Norm Why[_2_]
Hi, A 'lot of diffuse hardware problems' is a story too long to recite. I was reluctant to upgrade to a BETA BIOS. When I did I thought I'd bricked the machine. After a nights sleep, I realized the upgrade had reset to defaults / PCI monitor rather than PCIe. Now hardware works perfect....

How it is possible by micky
How it is possible that one SSD is 17 times as fast as another but costs less? Both are 240G. Why would anyone buy the slower one (like I did last summer)? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N5IB20Q?ref=ppx_pop_dt_b_product_details&th=1 350 Mb per second ...

Why is this HDD so small? by micky
Why is this so small? Alternatively, why aren't they all so small? Less than 4" x 1 1/4" x 1/3". Is it a real HDD, a spinner, with a rotating platter? It calls it a harddrive more than once, and never uses SSD, etc. but it's so small....

Can Win8.1 laptop show CD movies? by [email protected]
Or did the movies all come on DVDs? The laptop is about 4 years old and came with W10 installed, which was changed to W8.1, for G3-dongle compatibility. It's got a HDMI socket, which the TV also has. So would the video show on the TV? And what about sound? What preliminary tests can I do with my...

Windows 10 MAIL has a backdoor by Norm Why[_2_]
I have a civil dispute with Psychologists in Brazil. A murder committed in Canada is unethical in Brazil - Very controversial. Windows 10 Mail would not permit me to send Mail to ethical potentates in Brazil. Thank goodness I still have Outlook Express on WinXP. Microsoft backdoor defeated.

For a variety of reasons, the Smart TV features on my 43 inch LG are a royal PITA - I've been using my laptop and connecting to the TV with a Display Port=HDMI cable. The TV also has USB sockets - is there any significant difference in quality between HDMI and USB cables when used ...

Are both SSDs the same? by Boris[_7_]
I'm looking at two desktops. I can't tell if the SSD is the same on each configuration, because one says NVMe, while the other doesn't. Is it just sloppy description, or are both SSDs the same? 1) 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD +1TB SATA 7200 RPM HDD 2) 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive + 2TB...

Hi, I have a 500GB Seagate Barracuda that comes with a 5 year warrantee. I'm having problems where various files became corrupted and don't work. I've exchanged it once. Seagate Tools said it was slow. Maybe I'm doing something wrong under the assumption that SATA300 and SATA600 are compatible?...

4 cores by micky
One of the watchwords of computers used to be that they only do one thing at a time, and they just switch from one thing to another very quickly. However, now that cpu's have 2 or 4 cores or more, is that still true? Does my cpu with 4 cores do up to 4 things at the same time? Then, if it's...
