    Laptop battery charging limiter software?

    Found a tool that works. Downside, you need to be around and laptop needs to be turned on. When it reaches a designated charge, it starts beeping obnoxiously to let you know to unplug it. It can also be used to warn you when it's 100% charged if you need to have it fully charged and ready to...

    Laptop battery charging limiter software?

    I'm mostly concerned about HP X2 laptop that has integrated battery and I can't just simply buy a new one. It lasts for hours anyway so 20% less charge for longer lifetime is perfectly acceptable.

    Laptop battery charging limiter software?

    It's not even about overcharging because it's impossible. It's about chemical processes going on in batteries when they are reaching peak capacity. Heat is part of the problem because they get much warmer when peaking power, but it's how cycles are counted when charged to only 80% opposed to 100%.

    Laptop battery charging limiter software?

    Is there any software for Windows that could limit charging of the battery on laptop to a desired percentage in order o extend its life?

    Intel processor generational differences

    You can use Optane on ANY system. Just slam PrimoCache software on your system and you're set to go. Even if you use AMD system.

    How to fix a messed up mastering of a song?

    It's not hard to describe problems that are not based on audio format, like in my case where problems exist before I bought the music. When bass is so boomy that it entirely drowns vocals, it's a major problem, because the track balance is all screwed up. All you hear is bass overdrive and...

    TomsHardware--GTX 1180 Expected in July

    The thing is, with no competition, NVIDIA becomes its own competitor in a way. If they launch a new product and it's not a significant upgrade to old generation, people won't buy it. There is a small group of people who buy new generations because they already skipped one or two generations, but...

    How to fix a messed up mastering of a song?

    Ok, today I've tested many fixed versions and best one was EQ with 100Hz rumble removal preset for it. It removed all the boomy part of the bass while kept some of it intact and vocals also sound better than with Bass/Treble controls. It's really unusual because other tracks mostly sound just...

    Where are the promised MSI Spectre/Meltdown BIOS updates?

    I like my X99A Gaming 7 board, but their customers relation and product support is just pathetic. I was on ASUS the entire time and their BIOS support is fantastic.

    How to fix a messed up mastering of a song?

    No. All other songs sound fine in the car ranging from acoustically played songs to trance, just this one goes totally bonkers on bass. Now I've dropped it through several filters, even found EQ filter that has presets to lower the bass, tried limiters and stuff, maybe one of them will sound ok.

    How to fix a messed up mastering of a song?

    The track in question is this one (can't post a full track for legal reasons): https://www.beatport.com/track/when-our-story-has-to-end-radio-edit/9670467 The thing is, before I bought it, it sounded quite ok on PC. I love the vocals, but when I sticked this on my USB drive in a car, it's so...

    Sennheiser Introduces CX SPORT In-Ear Bluetooth Headphones

    These look awful similar to OnePlus Bullets. Though those have few clever features like magnetic ON/OFF switch. Not sure how they stack up against Sennheiser tho...

    EVGA Says Goodbye to Driver DVDs

    I still have my Samsung DVD-RW writer. Like 12 years old or so. Only time I still use it is for really old retail games that I fancy playing again here and there. I've been doing USB installs of Windows because I owned ACER Aspire One which had no optical drive. That was back in 2009 I think? It...

    Gpu with or without backplate?

    Depends on design. If it's a plastic cover, it's only for design and to avoid shorting the card by touching it while running on top. In most cases these plastic covers make things even worse. Better cards with metal covers that have thermal pads underneath can have a decent cooling capability...

    EVGA Says Goodbye to Driver DVDs

    Not to mention ecology aspect. Sure, USB drive requires more resources to make, but you don't toss it in the bin the moment you buy a graphic card or whatever. I always download drivers directly, because those on CD/DVD are always old. But USB, if you don't need the drivers, you can use it as...
