    Windows 10 Recovery Gone BAD

    Since I'm pretty Linux incompetent I'll try loading the hard drive to my pc and try to recover the files that way first... I'll have to learn using Linux recovery at some point though, can you tell me what that process is called exactly so I can Google or YouTube it? Meanwhile is this just...

    Windows 10 Recovery Gone BAD

    Even if I have to trash it, I'm curious why this is happening... What's the cause... This is a pretty routine process... Can the system be so corrupted that it screws up this badly upon recovery attempts?

    Windows 10 Recovery Gone BAD

    When I tried to recover again, this happens upon windows loading... And that's when it comes up with the black desktop with nothing but the Recycle bin.

    PC Freezing and Slow Before Boot

    Thanks for the help guys.... Weird, when I turned it on to test, guess what, it booted right to Windows LMAO. Anyways, I reset CMOS and reseated all the hardware, cleaned the dust that was all over it (they have dogs and they never clean the inside of the PC and leaves it on 24/7), no errors on...

    Motherboard/BIOS Error? Weird pixelated image at boot

    Seems client is using the PC fine for the last couple of days with just the new vcard in there. Would still be curious to see if any preemptive measures should be taken about the boot up issue.

    Motherboard/BIOS Error? Weird pixelated image at boot

    Any ideas? Was having some problems with video so replaced the vcard, system is booting and running fine but client had complained about an issue where at boot this type of image would pop up and not go to Windows. It is currently booting to Windows (and so far working flawlessly inside...

    Best fast charging hardware/solution for mobile/tablet devices

    So cable quality is negligible? I could swear using the same ports that different cables had different performance.

    Apple to USB Adapter

    Hey guys, happy holidays! I have what seems to be an Apple port (I have never owned an Apple product since the IIe and Mac Classic so forgive me) in my car's glove compartment. My ideal solution for music was to buy a new stereo with a USB port to insert a flash drive full of MP3's and...

    Battery powering fans

    I meant parallel, ya, I would need the max fan speed, thanks for clarifying. Of course the one 5V fan that offers over 40CFM only has a stated votage of 5V, but no "operational voltage" range like some other fans do in the spec sheets ugh... great. Sorry, how will static pressure be...

    Battery powering fans

    I can visualize that, but would love to know a equivalency formula where something I can calculate that 2x 5V 70 CFM fans = 1x 12V 150 CFM fan Know what I mean? And I guess with the 2 fans in series, that means the system is still at 5V but the amp draw is more = batteries will work...
