Don't Ignore Your UPS by John McGaw
It seems that I manage to get bitten at least once a year when there is a power failure -- one UPS out of the five I have (I live at the 'end of the line' in an area with many huge trees and elderly infrastructure so power can be problematic) will surprise me by running out of power far sooner...

Lost Hard Drive by [email protected]
I have a SATA hard drive I use for storing backup data. I am in W7 Home Premium. Suddenly the drive is not recognized, either by my MSI BIOS or by Windows Explorer. Is it lost forever? Or is there another way I can try to make it recognizable (and readable)? Probaby not. Thanks JW

They come in threes... by John McGaw
Bad things, that is. After a long spell of being ignored my old home-built Windows Home Server started to show a variety of odd problems. I used WD's diagnostics program to check each of the 6 disks sequentially and finally came to drive #5 which showed stalling and slow progress in the...

Sleeping Computer vs. Shutdown ? by [email protected]
Powering up after shutdown, poses some problems restablishing an Internet connection. These are not encountered when activating a computer that's been "put to sleep". This last seems to involve, no activity of the hard drive, but response to a key press, so something's still active. I want to...

Obsolete computer...trivia by philo
I recently scrapped out a 386 that had been setup as a voice mail system. I decided to open it up and have a look before it went to the recycler and was surprised to find a 1GB IDE hard drive in that thing. So...the machine must have been a lot newer than I thought. When looking at the file...

(Repaired) Toshiba Laptop Satellite L670 performing poorly (No HD Speed Information ?!? Weird IBM stuff) by Skybuck Flying[_4_]
Hallo, A few days ago I was at my mother's place. I noticed her laptop was infuriatingly slow. It was a Toshiba Satellite L670. It used to be fast, I was also under the impression that it was a kinda fast and expensive laptop.

co-processor by philo
I repaired a mini-pc running Win7 (32bit) and it's running well but in the control panel it shows no driver for co-processor. The CPU is an Intel quad core Atom 330 Intel has no such driver on their website (as far as I could determine) and their driver update tool found nothing missing.

Motherboard Advice Needed by Bob Simon[_2_]
A friend who runs a small business asked me to help her make her Compaq 100B PCs run faster. It turns out they have plenty of RAM but a very slow processor that appears to be soldered directly to the motherboard. Since this system does not have an internal power supply, I presume she will need a...
