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...

old computer acting odd by Bill Cunningham[_2_]
My computer has been booting fine and there's no picture sometimes. I restart it, sometimes several times. I will get words on the screen as it's booting that are "fuzzy". IMO I think the video chip is going. It's never really acted that way til lately. It's 14 yo. I can expect something :) Bill

Kodak Hero 3 Printer Trouble by [email protected]
I love this printer. Now suddenly it only prints grey, whether color or b&w. I put in new cartridges - same result. Anything I can try? I'd sure like to keep the printer. Thanks JW

What USB devices work through passive hub? by micky
What USB devices should work through a passive hub? My old laptop had 3 USB ports but I needed at least 4. I assumed that it was better to copy files to a flashdrive without putting a hub in the middle. Same for my USB speakers. OTOH, my mouse and keyboard xmit so little that I figured they...

Is there a hardware limitation to prevent 4 monitors (distributedacross a Radeon 6850 and a V4900)? by Ash[_5_]
I have a PC with 3 multihead graphics devices, but I'm unable to have more than 3 monitors at once. I'm using a P8H77-V motherboard. It has built-in Intel HD graphics (display port, DVI, HDMI). This seems to work (although I don't really plan on using it). I've got an AMD FirePro V4900 plugged...

Hitatchi VCR Problems by Se7en[_2_]
I bought a early 1980's-era Hitachi VCR (billed as a VTR on its casing) and connections, dispays and buttons all work. Only thing not working is its heads (the most important part). Putting a tape in results in loud mechanical clanking sounds. The tape refuses to play, rewind, fast forward, or even...

LG 55UJ6300 Need Help by [email protected]
This old fart is in trouble. I bought a new LG 55UJ6300 so-called 'smart' TV the other day, from Electronic Express, and it came with minimal guidance at best - no manual at all for the remote - useless manual for the TV. I have had no response from my emails to the seller - no surprise. They...
