I have a Samsung phone and am somewhat new to android. I find when I am doing job interviews on MS Teams or Google Meet, that I occasionally get messages or alerts that interrupt the meeting. Is there a way to block or mute all messages and notifications just before or while I'm waiting to...
Sorry, my bad. It was late at night and for some reason I was reading the spec 144 Hz as 1440p. Anyway, the Asus ProArt PA279CV should be okay, but I was reading some negative reviews about it on Amazon, especially about issues with the USB-C connector, as well as poor customer service. If you...
If you want to really zoom in on images, occasionally look at large photo files, or do any kind of photoshop type work, 4K can be really helpful. If not, then you probably don't need it. If you go with 4K, the scaling only affects the OS system GUI and fonts. Almost all apps and programs have...
Interesting that the Asus and ASRock GUIs look similar, and the Gigabyte and MSI GUIs look similar.
To my eyes, the Gigabyte seems a little easier to read, with the text layout being a bit more spaced out and clearer.
Which do you prefer aesthetically?
I know someone with a 32" 4K monitor and he scales at only 125%. I was thinking that therefore a 27" 4K might need a lot more scaling because of the much smaller screen size. But from the responses here it seems that only 25% more scaling is required for most people.
What do you set your display system scaling % at to make things more readable?
- native resolution?
I'm just trying to get an idea of whether you can get more usable real estate with a 27" 4K or a 32" 4K after factoring in scaling.
My version of Adobe Acrobat XI Pro is getting rather old and now that Acrobat has gone completely to a subscription model, it's too expensive. I use Acrobat mainly to do OCR and scanning of PDFs. I like some of the advanced features as well found only in the Pro version.
Are there any cheap or...
For the past 6 months I've noticed that embedded videos (on websites) are really laggy and stutter in Firefox. I've tried turning on (and off) hardware acceleration, but it makes no difference. I've tried tinkering with other settings, but nothing seems to help. I've been researching this...
Thanks. I will try some of those.
Just to be clear, again, it's not a continuous noise. It happens in sharp bursts. And it's not a whine, it's a grinding/buzzing sound for about a second or two. I just checked again, and it mostly happens when I 'select' or highlight a document i.e. when I...
Not a laptop. A PC desktop. Specifically, an HTPC form factor. One fan. One SSD. A 200W PSU. Onboard graphics. All components except for SSD and RAM are 12 years old.
It makes the noise when I start it up (power on) but mind you, every desktop with any kind of drive I've had makes a similar...
So I opened up my case to hear it, and the noise is definitely coming from the SSD. When I do something like open a document, it makes a grinding/buzzing sound. When I touch the SSD while it's buzzing for that second, I can physically feel it vibrate.
I have the same problem. A brand new Samsung 860 Pro just installed it. It makes a grinding/buzzing sound every time I copy and past a document. It's only intermittent when work is being done. The rest of the time it's silent. But the sound is much louder than in that video.
Any ideas what...
The SSD that's in it now is an old Intel X25-M (yes, SATA). I think it's the first SSD Intel put out.
I was just worried about controllers from the 12- year old CPU being compatible with an almost brand new SSD. But it sounds like it should be ok.
Thanks, yeah, I already have an 860 and an 850 Evo on hand that I was saving for my new build, but I need more storage right away. I figure when I build my new comp next year, I can just swap the 860 into it.
I have a 12 year old Intel Q9550 CPU on a computer I need to keep going for another year or so. I want to put a new Samsung Pro 860 SSD (SATA III) in it because I need more storage.
I was wondering...will there be any incompatibility with the SATA controllers, TRIM, or bios, or anything?
Nice 4K IPS 27" monitor with light matte coating. Above average contrast and full sRGB coverage. Some moderate IPS glow and backlight bleed, however.
From wikipedia: "The uBlock project official repository was transferred to Chris Aljoudi by original developer Raymond Hill in April 2015, due to frustration of dealing with requests. However Hill immediately self-forked it"
You're right. uBlock...
UPDATE: Okay, so I tried removing uBlock and installed uBlock Origin instead (even though this is supposedly a known problem with uBlock Origin as well). UBlock is a forked version of uBlock Origin that has been stripped down and made lighter (fewer filters and features).
That seems to have...
