    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.

    Windows 10 Recovery Gone BAD

    I'm working on a crappy Dell all in one that I think it's an i3 with 4GB RAM, a gift to my client last year from a family member... Yes that's right, last year LMAO. Anyways it kept popping up with the annoying missing files error messages on Windows boot, have to click like twenty times before...

    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...

    PC Freezing and Slow Before Boot

    Hey guys.... working on a clients PC, and a bit weird here, havent had many issues over the years like this. You start the PC It freezes forever on the startup screen while it says press Delete or F2 for setup When you press either, no response but takes about 10+ minutes to get to to the BIOS...

    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

    Hey man thanks for the super answer... u majored in engineering or some tech field didnt you LOL, this is how I would explain to someone else if the same question, so it is MUCH appreciated. Ok so I assume there is quality, and then there is gauge characteristics that I need to consider. So...

    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...

    Best fast charging hardware/solution for mobile/tablet devices

    Hey guys, happy holidays! I have suffered a sever conundrum on what is the best fast charging method for mobile/tablet devices. I just got the Nexus 6p and it is a pleasure to have its fast charging mode, which of course is limited by plugging it only directly into a wall connection, i.e...

    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...

    Battery powering fans

    Thanks for your input.... but when u say "check the datasheet" I dont understand because in all these specs I only see a voltage parameter and nothing else about what initial voltage it can handle up to etc.... Its more like a odor filter, so the filter itself will be kinda thick, not like a...

    Battery powering fans

    Is ZnMnO2 the next evolution of NiMH rechargeables... Assuming higher capacities and better charge-holding? It just seems odd that the 1.5V is the standard for DC energy but a device would use 5V, I dont like that math, just wondering how that came about.

    Battery powering fans

    Thanks a ton for this info, I feel like I am back in college working on a circuit board, if u can even call it that with this. I dont understand tho, why make a DC fan at 5V and not 6V? What do they expect u to do with a 5V... is that a much more common voltage for like RC's or some other...

    Battery powering fans

    Wow those minis, holy cow, so cute. However I think with their CFM I might as well blow with my mouth LOL... great site! I found this http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/E1225M05B-FSR/1570-1046-ND/5209743 So this fan is rated at 5V, 67 CFM, 600mA. If I get one of those 4x"D"...

    Battery powering fans

    Ya I know, but I been holding that back for a reason... its for an invention and I cant disclose the details for obvious reasons while I work on the prototype. But I will promise as soon as I get a patent approved I will upload photos and videos and description here to show you the function!

    Battery powering fans

    Thanks, ya I was considering all that and I severely underestimate the power needed to run a system fan LMAO, totally disrespected it. I will have to save all of these for a rainy day and just buy some lower powered fans... even if I got it working with all your suggestions, it really wouldn't...

    Battery powering fans

    Ya with all this it seems using my system fans is just not realistic for the long run in my little tunnel fan... I guess I'll just get something like this http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003DGPWLK/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2X2YDD7TL960N&coliid=I1B7RA5XXOGPMP&psc=1 and just make do...

    Battery powering fans

    So these solutions seems great for a one time experiment, but for the long term, I would really prefer to use a standard 9V or similar battery that anyone can buy at a store for pretty cheap. But it seems that will seem a bit unruly for these types of fans... Cost effectiveness is a big part...

    Battery powering fans

    Yes this is for an independent project, sorry if that weren't clear... everything will probably be going in an isolated plastic case, no fire hazard or anything like that would be relevant. So this one u posted most recently, I can get that and plug my fan directly into it? I assume I will...

    Battery powering fans

    Hmmm interesting, nice options to have... but I assume none of these come in rechargeable format? These are kinda expensive to keep replacing... would you have any idea how many life hours one of my fans mentioned above would have on the cheapest 1300mAh battery? Would it simply be 10hrs for...

    Battery powering fans

    Hey man, thanks for the awesome info... problem is I think I dont "understand" half if it LO< sorry.... I'm much more of an ME and an EE. Ok lets start with what I know... one fan I have is 12V and 0.13A... the other one is a 12V w/operational voltage 10.8-13.3V. Bottom line, for my little...

    Battery powering fans

    Hey guys... ok not sure if this belongs here but kind of an odd question. I would like to use some of my case fans that have the standard connectors (to the MB) for another purpose and would love to have them run off batteries, any batteries for now but might need a 9V to really spin them at...

    I just started a small company with a few employees and would like integrate our calendars. Isn't that what the MS Exchange server does? Considering we dont have our own dedicated server yet, nor do I really wish to buy a new PC just for that and leave it on 24/7, but will if its the only...

    MacPro1,1 (c.2006) 16GB RAM Upgrade Needs 64bit Win 7 OS?

    Actually some guy who knows macs said this is 32bit hardware and wont support any 64bit OS... dang that sucks... might just have to return the other 8GB. I read somewhere someone messing with a part that could make it compatible with 64bit OS but I cant remember what it was. It shows 8GB in...

    MacPro1,1 (c.2006) 16GB RAM Upgrade Needs 64bit Win 7 OS?

    Hey guys.... client has a 32bit Vista running on his MacPro1,1 right now, had 1GB RAM, got him 16GB because he wanted to stay with that computer. However it only shows 8GB, and reminded me of the times Windows always showed less RAM when it was 32bit. So would this be as simple as upgrading...

    Faster Memory Slows Down PC Performance (G.Skill Sniper)

    So I think actually since its prob too late to return this memory, which I WANT anyways, it is about time to upgrade my CPU to something like Intel Core i7-4790K Processor (8M Cache, up to 4.40 GHz)? Does that seem like the best option, although I would have thought CPU prices would have...

    Faster Memory Slows Down PC Performance (G.Skill Sniper)

My other problem is the Windows being not genuine now, and I cant find my Win disk/product code... Is there any...

    Faster Memory Slows Down PC Performance (G.Skill Sniper)

    Yes they are FAT32 I tried inserting it when shutting down, when it was off, after it went into BIOS, and after it requested for the drive, think I pretty much covered it all I tried my front USB ports, the rear 3.0 and 2.0 ports, 2 different once in the back, both of which I know work from my...

    Faster Memory Slows Down PC Performance (G.Skill Sniper)

    I didnt get any error in getting the last "stable" version of F10, but there is a newer beta version, came out in 2013 so I am sure its not bad, but that didnt come up in the @BIOS or TouchBIOS update, so I am willing to update to that manually, because look: U1J(UEFI BIOS) 2.96 MB...

    Faster Memory Slows Down PC Performance (G.Skill Sniper)

    Yes but this is actually appreciated... I use several tools from this list but I should really make a couple of CD's and flash drives with all of them on it. As stated I tried 1.6V +/- a couple of hundredths, no effect at all. Wait you are saying the GB provided Touch BIOS for Windows is...
