    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...

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

    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...

    I posted a question on the support forum but had a hard time finding a way to contact them directly with out already having a serial number. With out that, it was directing me to a third party called AnswersBy for out of warranty support. I should have it by tomorrow now. This will be mostly...

    I also found this https://www.slashgear.com/acer-spin-notebook-series-offers-a-dizzying-array-of-choices-31453926/ "And finally, the Acer Spin 1 gets an Intel Celeron processor (as there isn’t a Core i1) and up to 8 GB of DDR3L, not DDR4, RAM. It also has a dual storage system but one where you...

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

    Sorry about that, in my first post I can easily see how it sounds like I was talking about the SSD from Crucial instead of the laptop when I said " Does anyone know of other ways of checking other than ordering it and seeing once they get it?" I was trying to use the Crucial tool to see if the...

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

    How can I take it apart and take pictures without ordering it first? I didn't want to buy it if it can't be upgraded. I'll probably give it a shot since it seems like there is at least a chance it might work. Thanks everyone for the insights.

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

    I couldn't really find anything from Acer one way or the other. I know they sell a Acer Spin 1 version that comes with a 500 GB hard drive so I'd expected to be able to upgrade that one but can't find much out on SP111-31N-C4UG.

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

    I thought that I wouldn't be able to replace the hard drive in an Acer Spin 1 SP111-31N-C4UG but when I went to Crucial.com to look for upgrades, it had several SSDs listed for this model. I also double checked a laptop that I knew I couldn't upgrade and it only offered RAM options with no...

    Which is better Gt 7600 or integrated G3258?

    I'm throwing together some old parts to make another computer for the kids to play Minecraft. I think the Gigabyte GT 7600 is better than the G3258 but I'm not sure. I'm having trouble tracking down what version of Intel graphics is on the chip. If it is just Intel HD then the GT 7600 would...

    Asus Z170-E with i3 6100, what DDR4 to get?

    Would there be much benefit in this setup to get any of the faster DDR4 or just stick with the 2133? Any recommendations? Thanks

    AT&T CEO Warns FCC Over Net Neutrality

    What I have read at least seems to indicate that it could help Google fiber rolling out due to access to existing infrastructure that the did not have access to before. Probably another reason that Comcast and AT&T would be unhappy.

    Microsoft Comments On Security Flaw Revealed By Google

    From what I remember reading from before, Google gave Microsoft 30 days before they went public and Microsoft was going to roll out the fix with a major patch that was going to be 32 or 33 days.

    Got my Westinghouse LVM-37W3 37" 1080p display today!

    I have had this monitor forever it seems and it has served me well. Problem I'm having now is that I want to run HDMI out from my Surface RT to it and I can get picture and now sound. I have been able to do this with other TVs with the Surface RT. I remember there being some issues with the...

    Microsoft Stays the Execution of Windows 7 PCs for Business

    I have a server with the same UI as well and I'll agree that the UI seems out of place at best in a server environment. I was able to do everything I needed to without much trouble I guess but it did not help matters any either.

    Microsoft Stays the Execution of Windows 7 PCs for Business

    Once I got passed the "this sucks I don't want to have to learn something new" part of Windows 8, I really haven't had many problems. It took a little bit of time, but I'm happier with it than 7 right now. I also pretty much do everything in desktop mode and don't use any of the metro apps...

    WD Black 2TB,Q9550,GA-EP45-UD3P,G.Skill DDR2,E350N-USB3,Lian Li PC-Q07B ITX, +more

    The Q9550 was never really overclocked. The system was built for a friend of mine and he just used the system to play WOW and LOL so didn't really see the point and he wasn't the type to tweak stuff. Was probably a waste on him at the time, but he was the type that always wanted the best even...
