Recommend data recovery company? by B00ze
Good day. Got a 15 years old WD IDE hard drive, that was showing ZERO problems in SMART data, suddenly can no longer calibrate (i.e. it can't read anymore.) NOW the SMART data is showing something's wrong. Hard drive "clicks" (heads go back and forth full disk) then quits trying. Have another...

KEWL by Flasherly[_2_]
Thought my 200-watt amp was like 50-years-old: reality checks in to say it's actually 30 and only made from 1985-88. ...Way back when everything was 8-ohm speaker loads. A number of good amps, however, placed for added feature-minded class consciousness, provided for speaker arrays -- in case an...

Is it safe to remove power from a SATA hard drive leaving data connectedto disable it? by mike
The problem I'm trying to solve is that windows 10 upgrade to one hard drive messes up the boot sector of the other bootable drive. I've been opening the case and pulling the data cable. I need a way to EASILY switch off a hard drive so that it is completely inaccessible. I've been considering...

Strange occurence with SSD by Larc[_3_]
I have a Samsung 850 EVO 124G SSD that I use for the system drive in my #2 desktop. I recently noticed that more than 60G was being used by the C drive. I hadn't installed nearly that much stuff. A Macrium backup done just 4 days earlier was only 16.5, not nearly large enough for 60+G. I checked...

Running Win10 Home x64 on a system I built, but using a HDD from a Lenovo that is out of use. I used the same OS installation- it found and installed the drivers I needed for the new MB and CPU, and everything runs like nothing was changed. Opening Disk Management shows some extra partitions...

Are there any PC monitor goggles or glasses? by [email protected]
It seems that it would sometimes be convenient if there are some type of goggles we could hook up to a computer to do some quick tasks without having to have a monitor, especially if we have more than one computer and are just using one of them to back things up, or any similar situations. So far...

CC Fraud (a sad story) by Flasherly[_2_]
Not sure, bit over my head, how that applies to some of the "other" sites, say, as opposed to Amazon or Ebay. No doubt a real fun job for law enforcement.

BIOS setting for "Boot from CD" by SC Tom
This is kind of a follow-up to "Spontaneous Shutdown/Reboot", but a different subject; hence the new subject line. After still having the reboots about every week to 10 days, and swapping out everything except the MB and APU, I decided to try a new MB. I bought a BioStar A68MD...
