alternative to Verizon FIOS G-1100 router? by R2D4
After having DSL for many years, Verizon installed the 50/50 double play FIOS yesterday (I got Internet and phone only, no tv nor plan to anytime soon). They also provided the Fios G1100 router, but I'd prefer to use my own. I currently had a Netgear N300 left over from another use and I have...

Xbox 360, the value of maintenance by Norm X[_2_]
Lately, I have seen web and YouTube discussions about Xbox 360 teardown and maintenance. My Xbox 360 dates from 2008, but early on, there was the red ring of death and it was replaced by Microsoft. Now the DVD drive is a little flaky and needs encouragement to open/close. It operates in a non...

I have a Microsoft Natural Wireless Laser Mouse 6000 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000KA7PD0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 that is getting a bit iffy at times. It's a beast of a mouse, but I love it- the way it fits my hand, the easily accessible buttons, etc. I've tried a...

How did my alarm code change when I never touched it by micky
How did my alarm code change when I never touched it? (not a computer but it does have a digitally stored program, and solid state memory for the settings, less than 1000 bytes, I think.) About 9 years ago I started to install a burglar alarm, but I didn't finish before I had to leave on my...

Memory question by Bill Cunningham[_2_]
I have put a new memory stick into my XP x64. I removed two 512 MB sticks. This new one is 1024 MB. Why would my system still be saying I have 896 MB of ram? Do I need to do something in BIOS? When I had a 1024 and a 512 MB in there it was showing I had 1.3 GB of ram. How much Ram can XP...

Had a working HPZ200 computer which was working fine in one room. Took it to another room, connected it to an outlet and it started beeping continuously which it never did before. Took it to the old room and it was fine. I thought it was a power surge in the second room so used a Belkin surge...

motherboards by Bill Cunningham[_2_]
I make this post in curiosity. My computer is getting a bit aged. But still going :) Now a reasonable motherboard with a 32 bit processor, what would a reasonable one go for? For those that keep up on this. I bought a motherboard once and put it in a case. I fired it up and it was dead...

The t hread about free installation of 10 has piqued my interest. Which is better, a small form factor PC running a 64bit version of 10 using 8Gigs RAM, or a full size case running a 32bit version with 4gigs? Alternatively, I ordered 8gigs for my computer that had the bad memory** Does that...

Damage a case fan by vacuuming air vents from the outside? by micky
Can you damage a case fan by vacuuming the air vents from the outside? (I have a Dell Optiplex 775 with the original fan. ) It seems more than safe to me, but I happened to read the manual for a Noctua fan and it says not to use a vacuum cleaner or it may apply "excessive force to the fan". I...
