A few things that might help get those questions answered faster.
Be specific when you are talking about something - "my mp3 player is broken HALP!?"
- What kind of mp3 player, (brand and model)
- What isn't is doing now that it was before (the reason it is "broken")
- What were you doing to it last, right before it broke.. Did you maybe drop it?.. get it a little wet? try to flash the firmware?!

These all help in determining what can be done.
These rules do not just apply to MP3 players.
Just be as specific as possible and don’t leave stuff out, we want to be helpful here, try not to make it a scavenger hunt for clues!
These same rules apply for other situations like “I got a new motherboard and now my computer doesn’t post!”
-old motherboard model
-new motherboard model
-ram (speed)
and any other component you might have in there (most of the other stuff usually won’t matter but list what you know.

I do believe you are correct.

Is it possible to get the drivers from one linux distro and use them in another?
I recently got a cheap chromebook and the only distro that the trackpad works with is ubuntu, which I really don't want to use.
I used the lsmod command and put the output of that into a .txt document, and I did the same for mint distro.
I compared the two, and the output for what ubuntu used was sdhci module used by sdhci_acpi.
Does this sound about right? And if so, could I get the module and use it with another distro?

ok, so I'm getting ready to swap Hard drives in my PC and reinstall windows. since I have the opportunity, I am planning to install windows 8.1, moving from windows 7, however, I'm out of practice with warez (and maybe a bit too paranoid) and I don't know how to crack 8.1. Any help or guides would be appreciated. In exchange, have this magnificent picture of a gold dragon at their study.

Dude, just don't. Stick with Windows 7 as long as you can. I work as a technician, i can't express how shitty windows 8 is. As for windows 10, if you like microsoft data mining the absolute shit out of you 24/7 then go ahead.

Anonymous 15/10/05(Mon)15:18 No. 21947 ID: d0406c

It really doesn't matter, if you're a gamer or power user you can optimize windows 10 so its not fishing the shit out of your info and for extra speed and less background processes.
Its fast as hael when you optimize it.

Anonymous 15/10/08(Thu)01:59 No. 21951 ID: 10d6c2

And as an added bonus you might - might - be able to stop 10 from uploading all information about all wireless networks within range to a Microsoft server that the CIA/FBI/NSA/TLA can access at any time.

The general rule of thumb for 8 & 10 seems to be to use a KMS emulator, which emulates a KMS server that Windows checks in with periodically to ensure it's been properly licensed. KMS servers are typically used by businesses large & small for the software they've licensed from Microsoft, so their internet connections don't get clogged up with licensing traffic.

HD crash Anonymous 14/11/02(Sun)22:41 No. 21512 ID: 2d01f0 [Reply]

My external HD just crashed.

I got a weird message saying a file was not working in the HD, and suddenly I couldn't access it anymore. I couldn't turn off/on the pc with the thing plugged in either.

When I connect the HD the system recognizes it but the names of the files don't flash on the screen anymore. And as soon as I try to open it my pc freezes.

Lifehacker site says this is probably caused by "degraded magnetic media" (bad sectors). Says I should let a pro handle it. Is this true? What should I do? I need my data back...

You could try creating an image of the HD using free digital forensic software like FTK Imager.

It's ok OP, just plug in that daily backup of all your important da-oh.

I had really good success saving a sketchy hard drive (that still spins up) using Spin Rite.


Burn the image to a CD and boot up with it, run one of the auto fix things. It's not free.

Also you can try Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery Professional. It works inside of Windows so you don't need to boot it up. it's also not free.


If this is too confusing, just bring it to a shop.

Buy two HDDs of identical size, make backups often. I use Karen's Replicator by KarenWare. it's free.

I have a Corsair HX1000W psu and I just got today GIGABYTE GA-H55-UD3H motherboard. I noticed my mobo needs a p4 mb connector which didn't come with my psu wire case. Does that mean it won't power my mobo because my psu is too powerful or is there a wire that I have to buy to make both parts work together?

Yeah, hopefully you didn't do what >>21923 said to do, otherwise you may very well end up frying your board since you're basically plugging the wrong thing into plug.

>>21926 is exactly correct, your PSU included the correct connector.

BTW, this picture is of connectors included with your exact supply. Try checking the wires you think are PCIe power. One of them isn't.

You can split it up into two bits if you need to, though most of the time you can just plug it in with the extra 4 hanging off the side.

Clueless PC dude 15/08/29(Sat)12:14 No. 21929 ID: 38b817

Well found the connector but still not able to turn the power on I hope I didn't fry it appreciate the help/knowledge going to send it in to a PC repair shop.

Android here. Does anyone have experience getting paid apps for free? In-App purchases are easy to hack using Freedom, except server-sided apps, but I have no idea about paid apps. I've read something about using the "refund" option within 15 minutes, and I thought that maybe I could make an apk with removed license verification, did anyone try that?

Anonymous 15/09/26(Sat)18:37 No. 21945 ID: bafaa0

>Does anyone have experience getting paid apps for free?
Yep, download an unlocked version from a 3rd party website, install the .apk and away you go. Google don't actually check if the installed version is legit since it could have been purchased via a third party so it will still roll out the updates and allow you to make in-app purchases in an attempt to keep you tied into their services.

But again, this doesn't work with server-sided apps and there's no way around that.

Anonymous 15/09/26(Sat)18:48 No. 21946 ID: 90071c

There's no unblocked version, I wouldn't be asking if there was. It's not a very popular app.

Thinking about getting all these what are your thoughts or which parts would you swap? Will this be enough to play fallout 4 on max?

Since you're talking Fallout 4 and F4 isn't out yet, I'd wait a bit and get Skylake/DDR4 parts instead of Devils Canyon/DDR3 parts. Right now Skylake/DDR4 is gouge city but prices should come down as time goes by (hopefully in time for black friday sales).

Anonymous 15/09/25(Fri)23:47 No. 21943 ID: fc7703

Why get an 980 Ti when you can an R9 Fury for less with better performance and better future-proofing? Fallout 4 isn't built with nVidia Gameworks so there's no actual benefits.

Asus tablet type password to decrypt storage Kay 15/08/24(Mon)04:17 No. 21919 ID: d28cb6 [Reply]

I need help with my Asus tablet
One day I used it and it worked fine then couple days later I turned it on and it went to a screen that says type password to decrypt storage but we never put any passwords on it. I tried hard reset and it don't respond to holding down the buttons it just boots back to the type password to decrypt storage screen. Can someone please help?

Anonymous 15/09/23(Wed)17:08 No. 21940 ID: 21820b

Is right. It's the only way to be sure.

If you're feeling particularly brave and foolish you could try and recover the files. There's several variants of the virus, if you're lucky you can side step the OS and use a LiveCD to access the files directly. If you're unlucky you'll need to use something like PhotoRec to pull the raw data from the disc and bypass the filesystem-metadata. Both of these methods put you at risk of recovering the virus and starting an infinite loop.

It sounds like you set your wifi network to be hidden. Try checking your network profile settings and set it to be shown on the wifi list.

I'm not sure if you're using Windows/OSX/Linux/whatever, so try doing a search on Google for something like "unhide wifi [your operating system".

The setting you're looking for is probably labeled BSSID and it's on your router.
