    Multiboot question

    It's possible. I haven't used multiple disc to contain several OSes, so I'm at a lost. You might be able to get some help from the guy that runs dedoimedo.com. On his laptop, he has an eight-boot set up. Its probably all on one drive (assuming since most laptops only have one bay).

    hp 14-cf1015c

    Thanks! Replaced the drive and the BIOS displayed as usual. I was really worried! I've never encounter anything like that, so I was worried that I did something wrong

    hp 14-cf1015c

    Greetings, everyone! I hope you are all doing well and remaining safe and healthy during these troubling times. A friend of mine brought over his HP laptop that had a critical error with Windows 10. System Restore was unable to fix the issue (couldn't initiate). I attempted to reinstall...

    Buffalo NAS Boot ISO

    A friend purchased a NAS from Marketplace on Facebook for a pretty decent price. I can't recall why the owner sold it so cheap. Anyways, when my friend got the NAS home, he wrote zeros to all 4 hard drives. He did so without getting the boot firmware. We both scoured the Internet looking for the...

    PS4 Storage

    I'm not sure if this is the correct thread. But, I do have a question about game storage. Currently, I have the default 500 GB HDD. I was thinking about buying a 1-2 TB external to install my games on. My question is can both storage be used? Right now, I have about 4-5 games installed on the...

    Flash Drive with two partitions

    Greetings and salutations members! Several years ago, I made a live Linux USB. If I'm not mistaken, the distro was either Antergos or Apricity OS. Not every USB creator could make the flash drive bootable. So, I had to use one that I no longer remember the name. It created two partitions on the...

    SSD tools

    I'm looking for a dependable program that I can use to see how much life my SSD has. Intel has a feature-rich tool that has piqued my interest. Does it only function on Intel SSD? I have an off-brand model, I just want to see how much time before failure.

    DIYPC GamerMax-W

    I was afraid of downloading and installing the incorrect drivers. Thanks for all of the replies

    DIYPC GamerMax-W

    Thanks everyone that replied. The Intel USB drivers worked. I downloaded them from ASRock website. What had me confused was the fact the motherboard USB 3.0 worked out of the box sort of speak

    DIYPC GamerMax-W

    Gotcha. But the thing is, I can plug devices (keyboard,mouse, and Wi-FI adapter) into the USB 3.0 ports on the motherboard and they work. I tried the keyboard and mouse on the case USB, nada. Would a set of generic drivers work? It's an ASRock Z87 Extreme4 mobo in a GamerMax-W case. I'm assuming...

    DIYPC GamerMax-W

    Do PC cases that have USB ports require drivers? I plugged in several devices and none of them work. I have the cable plugged into the motherboard USB 3.0 header. I made a similar post earlier, but it was in the wrong section. The motherboard USB is working properly.

    BenQ EX3203R Monitor Achieves VESA DisplayHDR 400 and AMD FreeSync 2 Certification

    Currently, I have an outdated BenQ gaming monitor; its RL-something which I love, and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg, either. Based on the heavy criticism on most of the BenQ monitors, it seems like the majority of replies indicate that they are overpriced. People are paying for a name...

    Wipe free space

    Oh, okay. Thanks! So, basically I panicked for nothing! I'm curious as to why you said "wipers"? Does that mean these programs don't really delete deleted data efficiently?

    Wipe free space

    Just out of curiosity, I wanted to wipe free space on my hard drive. I decided to use CCleaner since it was already installed onto my PC. During the progress, I noticed the amount of free space was shrinking. 344 GB had went down to 160 GB, so I panicked and stopped the process! I am assuming...

    Location history json

    When I open the file with Notepad++, this is what I see: { "locations" : [ { "timestampMs" : "1521580877981", "latitudeE7" : 429333711, "longitudeE7" : -856187012, "accuracy" : 48

    Location history json

    I'm not really sure where to post this, but since it might require a specific set of software; I thought this will be the right spot. After the Facebook debacle, I wanted to see what Google had stored on me. I downloaded everything and extracted it. My location history, to my surprise, is in...

    Winfile file manager

    I saw a post on Arstechnica about reliving 1990 with Winfile. The source code is hosted on github which I downloaded. I don't know what I am supposed to use to compile it. In the article it said it has been changed to be used with Visual Studio 2017. Programs like that up a lot of space. Is it...

    Nod32 possible false positive?

    That's what they were detected as. It appeared it was like a 'hook' feature and how it updates or something. Kingsoft was attaching itself to svchost. But since its a reputable software.. I think its fine

    Nod32 possible false positive?

    After installing Nod32, it started an initial scan. So far, it has found seven infections. Some of which I am not so sure about. 2 of the 7 infections are Kingsoft WPS office suit and OBS (Open Broadcast Software). I'm wondering if they are false positive or do they really contain some...

    Monitor goes to standby and loses signal

    Are you using an adapter? VGA to DVI? I had this same problem long time ago. My monitor would go to sleep then wake up again. I just don't remember how I fixed it.

    Windows install for another computer

    Well, accessing the hard drive was simple. All I had to do is slide down the plastic cover to gain access. I didn't want to tear down the machine because the owner of it isn't very level-headed. It was a little hassle, but nothing compared to if I had made a boo-boo and render the all-in-one a...
