    Computer blue screen on boot, fine with extra HDD removed

    Ended up being the power supply. Each HDD checked out on another computer. I was almost hoping it was a HDD issue since changing the power supply is a pain vs dropping in a new HDD and I had back ups of everything.

    Computer blue screen on boot, fine with extra HDD removed

    Power went out and computer wouldn't reboot after. The boot drive is a SSD and I have 4 HDD for storage. When booting, I can hear a clicking noise so thought one of the HDD failed. I disconnected them and booted fine. I started adding them back in one at a time. With one added the computer...

    I asked him for more info on his ram, he has 2x Ballistix Sport LT 8GB Single DDR4 2666. Would that work ok with a Ryzen setup? Any motherboard recommendations?

    Help picking CPU/Mobo? Gaming and video converting

    I haven't built in a while and have a friend looking to put together a PC for some light gaming and video converting. He has 16 GB of DDR4, 1 TB SSD, GTX 1060. I was thinking going with an i5 8400 would be a good choice but wasn't sure what motherboards would be good. He will not be...

    Potential problems with moving Windows 10 boot drive to new computer

    My kids computer is getting a little old and the integrated graphics on the 2500k no longer works for all of the games she wants to play. She was using an old system that I had put together but was wanting to move her over to and HP that I was able to pickup on clearance. I know a clean...

    Help extending wireless network in wired house

    I was looking at the UniFi AC In-Wall but there are some really good sales right now on the UAP-AC-LITE-US ($70) Will they both give comparable coverage? I assume that they can work together so I could get one of each? Also, just to make sure I'm understanding this correctly, if I purchased...

    Help extending wireless network in wired house

    Thanks for the help, I was thinking about something like a Netgear Nighthawk Mesh X6S but the options listed here would be cheaper and better fit what I need.

    Help extending wireless network in wired house

    I have a Netgear Nighthawk X4 AC2350 in the basement. The wireless signal is pretty weak when you get to the 2nd floor of the house. I do have Cat5e running to each room of the house. I set up an access point with another router but devices wouldn't switch to the stronger signal. Is there...

    Upgraded Windows to 1709, screen full of colored lines when waking from sleep now

    I'm running off of intel integrated graphics, i3 6100 with intel 530 graphics. I went to intel and downloaded newest video drivers the 530 and still have the problem. Any other ideas on what I should do? I can switch back to previous version of windows if needed but would like to get it fixed.

    Can I replace the hard drive in a Acer Spin 1 SP111-31N-C4UG?

    Well, final update I think for anyone that finds this looking for the same info. I believe there are a few models/options on the Acer Spin 1 and some of them came with a 500 GB HDD. Those models have the sata connector where the empty solder spot labeled HDD1 is on mine. That maybe why...

    Just read some where on a similar model that you have to remove the battery to do it. I'll give it a try later and see how hard it is to take out the battery.

    Can I replace the hard drive in a Acer Spin 1 SP111-31N-C4UG?

    I was able to do a chat with someone from acer once I had a S/N. He said the RAM was upgradeable and that a SSD could be added. He said that they do not provide any support for upgrades and I'd need to take it some where for it to be done. He also insisted that it shipped with a 500 GB 5400...

    Can I replace the hard drive in a Acer Spin 1 SP111-31N-C4UG?

    Yeah, that was what I was afraid of. I'll try using their support now that I have a serial number. They didn't seem to have/ or I couldn't figure out a way to contact them before buying it. Thanks

    Can I replace the hard drive in a Acer Spin 1 SP111-31N-C4UG?

    I got the Acer Spin SP111-31N-C4UG yesterday and took the back off of it today. I can see where a SSD would go, but I don't see anyway to connect it. If don't have a lot of experience working on laptops though. https://1drv.ms/i/s!AjeNQl9VEybaoq8Ls3zGNzsh69NjRQ...
