    Lost access to Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220

    Lol. I went ahead and snagged a 1 terabyte drive that matches. $29 with a three year warranty. I figured for 30 bucks and i/the NAS is working I'm going to ride with it for now. I didn't want to invest $300 or $500 right now with other things going on. Although I am really interested in the one...

    Lost access to Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220

    I forgot this NAS can be finicky. After letting it set for about a day off of power (and ordering a power supply I didn't end up needing - but it is a really nice universal unit I can keep) and then pulling both drives I could login to the NAS. It seemed a bit tricky getting back online. I then...

    Lost access to Seagate BlackArmor NAS 220

    I've been using this thing for years with virtually no issues. Recently I hit a 90% limit I had set so I used Windows Explorer (late version of Windows 10) to remove old backup archives and free up space. After doing this I spotted what looked like a HDD error reported form the NAS OS and then...

    Lenovo C930 - bad battery performance

    Under Battery in Settings there is a Battery Saver that's already set to 20% and enabled. But I don't see an option to see which app(s) are using the battery most however. Been watching the Task Manager. Not seeing anything here chewing up CPU. Bought 12/12/18. so setup was done back then...

    Lenovo C930 - bad battery performance

    Purchased not too long ago an seeing poor battery life. Wondering if anyone is familiar with this issue. Not seeing anything using up resources. Installed the latest battery F/W update and BIOS. I'm barely surfing and can see the battery depleting. Just yesterday I ran a battery report and it...

    Yahoo Weather Widget stopped working after Win updates

    Not sure how to be more clear about the issue. I have no plans to install a fresh copy of Win10. Trust me, things are fine with my install. No issues, just with Yahoo Weather again.

    Yahoo Weather Widget stopped working after Win updates

    The Yahoo Weather Widget stopped working again the other day and doesn't load anymore. Changes? Be great to get it back up and running again.

    Win10 Pro drivers needed for Gigabyte EP45-UD3R

    You might be onto something. I don't mess with this sort of thing really so any feedback would be helpful on what to look for and to do. The capture includes anything USB. See image:

    Win10 Pro drivers needed for Gigabyte EP45-UD3R

    Both. Previously on Win7 I had good speeds wherever I plugged in. I did notice the USB 3 on the monitor was faster with USB 3 thumb drives (connected to USB 2 on mb). Either direct, monitor or on face plate of desktop PC.

    Win10 Pro drivers needed for Gigabyte EP45-UD3R

    Sizes very a lot from quite small to quite a few Mb. Starts out at about 27Mb and then drops down to ~1Mb. When this PC was running Win7 this Sandisk USB 3 device was quite fast.

    Win10 Pro drivers needed for Gigabyte EP45-UD3R

    Using a Sandisk 3.0. Standards USB on one side and micro on the other so it can be used with cell phones. Just tried to transfer 850Mb and it took about 12 minutes.

    Win10 Pro drivers needed for Gigabyte EP45-UD3R

    Ex: using a current Sandisk USB 3 and I'm transferring about 854Mb from SSD to this Sandisk and it show's a transfer rate of 1.05MBs and it fluctuates up and down, mostly down. I should be able to transfer a Gig pretty quickly but this is taking about 10 minutes or so. This is using the default...

    Win10 Pro drivers needed for Gigabyte EP45-UD3R

    Yes the Win10 drivers do work. However, USB transfers are quite slow. Which is why I started this thread. Got me thinking about other speeds as well.

    Win10 Pro drivers needed for Gigabyte EP45-UD3R

    So, install the EP45-UD3R F12 MOD BIOS update and then this should improve my SSD performance? Also, doesn't sound like I'll be able to do any better with updating any of the system drivers for Win 10 after this BIOS mod install. I've been overclocking my PC since I originally built with this...

    Win10 Pro drivers needed for Gigabyte EP45-UD3R

    I completed a clean install with this mb and using the Samsung 850 EVO some time ago. When attempting to update the drivers I've referenced it says the best are installed already. When you refer to the Intel ROM are you referencing the Gigabyte BIOS? I have the latest F12 from Gigabyte...
