    Phone randomly died for no reason whatsoever. Appears bricked. Can anything be done?

    I'm kind of freaking out... I was charging the phone. It got to 90%, and I picked it up, unplugging it. Checked something on it, pressed power button to turn off screen and set it down again. Came back to it a few minutes later, and... it's dead. Absolutely no response to anything I do. Plugging...

    Is it really not possible to play BF1 with a 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU?

    Nice. Thanks for the recommendations! I guess I should not have asked for the "best" card that can work with that PSU lol. Sounds like the 1060 will be more than I'm willing to spend now.

    Is it really not possible to play BF1 with a 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU?

    Well, based on what I'm seeing in the For Sale/Trade thread, <$100? There's a thread from nearly 2 months ago of someone selling a Radeon 470 4GB for $70. Is that normal? I don't even know what the fair price for anything is... But the bottom line is I'm trying to get by as cheaply as possible lol.

    Is it really not possible to play BF1 with a 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU?

    Oh wow, can't believe I neglected to Google "battlefield 1 on 2500k" before posting... 😆 Now I see that lots of people have explored this question. No, never bothered to even look into it haha. I have this slightly awkward arrangement of 24 GB. 8 GB x2 of PC3-10700 and 4 GB x2 of PC3-12800H...

    Is it really not possible to play BF1 with a 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU?

    Maybe a stupid question... Sorry if so, lol. I barely play any games, but recently my roommate and I were thinking we want to play Battlefield 1. So, I just wanted to double-check: is it really not possible to set the game to all the lowest settings and play it on my 2500K Sandy Bridge CPU? The...

    Any recommendations for a session backup add-on for Firefox?

    A few months ago I got burned by Firefox where it crashed and then the session was wiped out. None of my windows and tabs were restored even though I have it set to restore session. I don't recall the precise circumstances but I think it also updated itself, and that had something to do with it...

    How can one search for files from the Win 10 start menu??!

    I was watching this video, which is about how to (supposedly) recover unsaved WordPad files: If you go to approximately 1:57, it tells you to search for .tmp files on your PC. It says to simply type .tmp into the Start Menu and search for those files. Uhhhhh this is impossible. Below is what...

    What needle is this? Where did you find it? Is it a regular needle used for sewing?

    Google Pixel 3

    Guys, I've found the solution. At least for my phone, the solution is to buy Sony-branded USB-C cables, which can be found on Ebay. Like you, I've tried a few 3rd party cables from Amazon, including from Anker--which is supposedly a more well-known (and better quality?) brand--and they are all...

    Google Pixel 3

    Hey guys, I found this thread because I searched the forum for something related to USB-C port problems. I've never owned a Google phone, but since it looks like a few people are asking this question about other phones, I'll chime in. I have a Sony XZ1 Compact, and I've had it for like 2 years...

    Confusion over Win 10 license & product keys

    I really don't know. It was like 4 years ago probably, and I don't remember such a detail at all. It's definitely the Education edition. Which I would only be able to get if I somehow used the software I got from my university. *** I would absolutely love to just leave Laptop 1 as it is...

    Confusion over Win 10 license & product keys

    Background: I had a desktop PC and a laptop--call it Laptop 1--that both had Win 7 on it. (However, a Win 8.1 disc was included with Laptop 1 because Win 8 had been released already but Dell offered the option of having 7 preinstalled.) Several years ago, I bought a Win 10 Edu license from my...

    Win7 extended support ending soon - any options?

    Can't you just contact those software vendors to verify for sure if you can transfer the software to Win 10? If you cannot, why not use dual boot? Leave win 7 for only those times when you have to use the software that can't be transferred, and boot into Win 10 for all other use cases.
