    100 GB data shows as 1 GB

    I have a Seagate external drive formatted in NTFS that I used for both Windows and Mac. I used Paragon software for Mac to allow me to read/write the drive. One day Windows 10 didn't see the drive any longer. In the Disk Management it shows as an uninitialized drive. Windows asks me to...

    How do you backup with integrity check?

    I currently backup my data using drag and drop to my harddrives and flashdrives. When one of my flashdrives started goofing off and corrupting individual files I realized my backup routine sucks. Of course the drive never gives me a hint that something has gone awry. I randomly checked a few...

    Do harddrives employ write spreading?

    Well do they? Do harddrives have a read/write-wear strategy or do they always write sequentially, writing at the first empty sector? If I save a 2 MB file to disk and then erase it and then save again does it occupy the same physical space on the disk?

    Why Cortex A7 feels faster than Cortex A9 processors?

    My LG G Vista phone is equipped with a Qualcomm Cortex A7 1.2 GHz cpu and Adreno 305 GPU. My Insignia tablet has a Rockchip Cortex A9 1.6 GHz and Mali 400 GPU. Why does my phone runs smoother than the tablet even though it has a lower clocked and previous generation ARM cpu? Scrolling the...

    Should I use Polymer Capacitors for replacement?

    I'm replacing the electrolytic capacitors on my 15" Klipsch KSW-300 subwoofer amplifier. The capacitor brand is Soundia and I have not been able to find specs for it. I was thinking of using polymer capacitors as a replacement because they are all around superior to regular capacitors except...

    How do I connect all the rooms for ethernet?

    The rooms in my house are wired for ethernet. There's a junction box in the garage where all the ethernet wires meet. They are all terminated together on this punch down board. Is this board similar to a hub since all the wires are all joined together. How do I connect this so each room has...

    Windows 10 steals a partition and won't let go

    During a clean installation of Windows 10 when I'm creating partitions, the installer automatically wants to create a 100 MB system partition in addition to the main partition. The harddrive is 500 GB. On another system with 750 GB harddrive the installer wants to create a 500 MB system...

    Someone backup Windows 10 DVD player

    It's true Windows 10 does not play DVDs. But Microsoft will give you a coupon for a free download of Windows 10 DVD Player via Update. Free only applies to upgrade Windows installations. If you do a clean install you forfeit or pay $15 for the privilege. I was wondering if there is a way to...

    Where are the 240 Hz video cards?

    We all seen them. Pretty much the majority of new TVs sold today have 120, 240, 6000 Hz frame interpolation capabilities. It's a pretty neat feature, I think. Fortunately there's Smooth Video Project for computer users, but when will video cards start implementing that in hardware?

    Corsair Flash Voyager GT sucks!

    I bought a 16GB Corsair Flash Voyager GT USB3 a few months ago. Let me tell you it is horrible. The thing is unreliable in retaining stored data. Within a month files are corrupted and unreadable. The most telling are the thousands of pictures I archive and using Windows thumbnails view I...

    Can I get better video acceleration?

    When it comes to video acceleration is there a difference in performance between a low end video card and a high end video card? Will a top of the line video card ease the burden of decoding a video more from the cpu?

    HD videos lag since Windows 10

    Previous to my Windows 10 upgrade I was able to watch 1080p videos full screen. I can watch youtube and netflix without issues. After the upgrade I can no longer do so as the videos play at 1 fps if not slower. If I scale down the video window to useless proportions then the frame rate goes...

    Any good tablets that have cellphone capability?

    I currently have a Samsung Note 3 with Verizon and I want a bigger screen. The Note 4 and 5 appear to have the same screen size and the Nexus 6 is just barely larger. I would like at least a 7 inch screen to make an upgrade worthwhile.

    Defer Upgrade disappeared

    I am using Windows 10 Home. Initially I saw the "Defer Upgrade" option in the upgrade settings. I read that Home is not supposed to have this option. It's been a few days and I notice the "Defer Upgrade" option is no longer there. Where did it go?

    What Windows 10 missed

    Upgrade process from Windows 7 was a disaster. After upgrade harddrive thrashing never ended. Windows Defender update kept redownloading the same update. A clean reinstall appear to fix that. Bootup is not any faster than Wndows 7. The unnecessary switching to a blank screen during bootup is...

    Windows 10 checksum?

    Do I upgrade video card or a waste of $20.

    Do I benefit to upgrade a Geforce 6200LE when all I'm using the computer for is for websurfing and video. No gaming. It's a Directx 9 card. My processor is a Phenom II X4 925 so it's pretty sweet already and can handle any HD videos. I know browsers have some hardware acceleration features...

    Underclocking XFX Radeon HD 6870 Black Edition

    I get over 100 fps playing League of Legends with the HD 6870. If I cap the frame rate to 60 fps the GPU temp reaches 60°C. Using MSI Afterburner I can lower the GPU and memory clocks a certain amount and the temp drops down to 55°C while maintaining 60 fps. That's amazing I thought. Why run...

    Corsair TX650W Power Supply Questionable

    I was given a 3 year old Corsair power supply (XMPSU-650TX-C). I wanted to make sure it's working right before plugging it to a motherboard. So I did the paper clip power on trick and all the voltages were ok. I proceeded to connect just one harddrive. The harddrive spins up and then...
