    unable to recover as many deleted files on ssd vs hdd

    You can do data recovery on an SSD. However, Windows 10 and most newer setups support TRIM which automatically 0 out the empty cells. This makes data recovery much harder compared to an HDD that does not 0 out any part and only overwrites when the space becomes available and not always...

    Data recovery that keep file structure/folders/file names?

    Depends if the file system table/MBR is readable to that extent. Most files do not include their own file names, since they can be renamed through any number of external applications. This is data stored in the file system. Some files may contain tags, such as ID(v3) tags in MP3/audio files...

    unable to recover as many deleted files on ssd vs hdd

    SSD can work much faster than a mechanical HDD. Apart from it using flash memory, it is also designed with a protocol of TRIM. This feature will automatically erase the files designated for deletion to leave the sectors empty. In this way, it’s pretty quick to read/write data to the SSD...

    Laptop only powering on by connecting/disconnecting keyboard

    I did perform the power button step. I was also looking up keyboards for a good price earlier. You won't hear any complaints from me, I'm just seeing what the community has to offer for advice. I think there is some solid life left on this laptop if it is able to get back up and running again. I...

So, I took off the palm rest to check the connection from the power button to the board. Seemed fine. Tried powering up. It turned on. I shut it off, unplugged the adapter...

    RAM Causing GPU Issues?

    I would say it's a graphics card issue but I don't think that would explain the full system crashes. Generally when a GPU crashes or is overloaded the screen will go black for a few seconds and turn back on with no consequence to the system itsself. I had something similar to this a while back...

    WD red 3TB drive that's short

    Check the disk manager and make sure it is showing up as only 800GB. This sounds like the very common issue of it being formatted as a MBR disk. MBR can only do partitions of up to 2TB, so anything higher than that gets split into two partitions and with 3TB it is normally 2TB and 800GB...

I rebooted by typing in 'init 6' and then got a black screen and the Mac wouldn't do anything. Eventually it's battery...

    How Intel's changing the future of power supplies with its ATX12VO spec

    Honestly I'm not sure what to think about it. On one hand it makes sense but on the other it's going to make PSUs cheaper and motherboard more expensive and I'm likely to swap out motherboard sooner than psu. Also this would make using old LSA or sata cards impossible since motherboard would be...

    Are the AMD drivers really that bad?

    I would stay away from AMD drivers currently. I have a Red Devil 5700XT with all updated drivers, sufficient power etc and I believe it crashes constantly. I can't pin down the problem and why it's occuring, but it points heavily to the GPU or the drivers being faulty. I would highly suggest you...

    Are the AMD drivers really that bad?

    I'm using 5700 XT and have suffered from constant blue screens and other annoying bugs. But when I turned off "enhanced sync", completely remove the drivers with DDU and reinstall clean, everything fixed for me. I believe that counts as driver issues.
