nVidia GPU reccomendadtion please. by ~misfit~[_16_]
I'm running an ATI HD7770 (with a QX9650 CPU) but the game I play is getting more and more complex. Also apparently it's better optimised for nVidia cards rather than ATI / AMD. So I need an affordable card that doesn't draw (much) more power than the HD7770 (~120w). Obviously it should be...

Keyboard Problem by [email protected]
I have inherited a HP PC 2026 that is working great even with W10. But it seems to have a keyboard problem that I do not know how to overcome. When I boot up, I see 'keyboard error' flash on the screen at the start of boot. Other than that the keyboard works fine when W10 is up and running. ...

"Ethical" Printer? by ~misfit~[_16_]
I've just junked yet another inkjet printer for parts (PSU mainly) and, as with the last one I see that there is more ink in the silicone tubes that go to the waste sponge and dried into the sponge itself than ever went onto paper during the ~2 years and ~3 sets of carts. How do they get away...

Beep codes by Bill Cunningham[_2_]
Does anyone know anything about BIOS beep codes? Someone gave me a computer and it doesn't do anything but beep so many times. That sounds to me like a BIOS problem. Would that be easy to fix?

WakeUp Noise by SteveGG
About 2 out of 3 times, when waking out of a sleep state over night, I get several seconds of a sound, like something winding down. After, everything is normal. Happens only after an overnight sleep. During any other time, no sound. Sounds for all the world like something mechanical, but fans...
