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.

"saving your changes" is intentionally mislabeled. It's saving changes related to windows updates.

Unless you downloaded the files, immediately shut down, then powered off the system, those files were flushed to disk long before you hit shut down.

okay cool

i got an error that said the values didn't equal or something and then windows shut down. but if windows shut itself down it would save changes (to itself) too, right?

A tool is not someone who does stuff for you. A tool is someone you use to acheive your goals.

If you have a tool but no need to use it then it is without purpose.

Live your life. If you need tools use them, if you do not, do not. Do not go finding purpose for tools, by doing so you become the tool through which they have purpose.

You are the tool!

First the .5Gb was locked unless you were a special case (specifically backed by NVidia and actively excluded anything to do with AMD). Then they unlocked it when people realised they weren't getting what they paid for and could potentially sue. Now developers have to deliberately avoid using that extra .5Gb to avoid shit-canning performance.

It's the prequel to nVidia Gameworks, shit-canning performance all over the place so they can lock developers into their product with the promise of "extra performance".

Gameworks is also about shitcanning performance on older Nvidia cards too. Even if your older card is vastly more powerful than a newer card, the newer card will get better performance.

The only reason developers are using Gameworks is to get a taste of that sweet, sweet Nvidia development monies. Having Nvidia work for free on your code is the same thing as paying a developer cash to hire someone to do the work. Nvidia just cuts out the middlemen.

It is not worth it
a couple of GTX 970's is still no match for a GTX 980 just save a little bit more and you can run any kind of games you want with a single GTX 980 than having to crossfire your cards. Crossfiring does not give you much performance it always depends on your game and how shitty it is optimized the most you will probably get is about 10-20 fps increase that is a pretty shit deal if you ask me, Just saying OP

Open a terminal in the Ubuntu VM and run:

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-dkms

Reboot it, and hopefully that should fix it. If not, there's going to be some hand editing of config files involved.

How do you start up a Raspberry Pi? I got a starter kit which includes everything needed to get going, but the starter kit didn't include a HDMI cable, so i got one of those. After several trips to the store before i settled on the right adapter. (i think). Then i downloaded SD card formatter and NOOBS, so that i could use my sd card.

But then it turns out later versions of windows can't detect sd cards at all, but my old as shit pc detects that my 16 gb card has a storage of 5 gb. But it can't be used.

Man, all in all, raspberry so far has been the most labor and hardware intense thing i have ever attempted. All the guides on youtube simply assume that everything is setup and properly arranged before you start using it.

But i cant even get it to start. Am i missing something here? Surely, it must be crucial that windows can detect SD-cards. But it is impossible. I have tried on several different computers.

Can't you just hook it up like a plc and get things going? Why does it have to be so complicated?

I don't know if you're kidding but... If you have trouble getting SD cards to work on Windows, it might be ten years too early for you to try out Linux.

Sounds like your SD card is incorrectly formatted, that's all. It's that complicated because you were too cheap to buy a prepared SD card from their store, I guess.

He could have also bought a shit SD card reader.

I have one that won't read cards over 2GB, and another that breaks at about 8GB. The former was just pre-SDHC, while the latter was a bargain bin piece of crap.

Okay, I'm new here, just throwing that out here and idk if this may be the place for this.
Anyways, i've been having problems with my phone lately (iPhone 4). The issue is in terms of storage space, I have jack shit on here (one application and 0 photos) and I still have less than a gig left in storage. I've reset multiple times and completely reset it. I've hooked it up to my computer and the only thing I could find were the pictures. I've had this little guy for about 2-3 years. This problem became relevant a few months ago and it hasn't stopped plaguing me. I've looked up solutions to this but most of them are for the 5, 5s and 6. Any suggestions as to what i can do to fix this.

I have an issue with iDevices where "Other" grows to be several gigabytes in size, even larger. Other covers Safari's cache but also data from Messages and Mail.

The problem is that while you can delete individual items in Mail and Messages to get that space back, Safari's cache is anything but temporary. The only way to fully clear it once its grown to unwieldy sizes is to use erase all contents and settings, then restore from an icloud backup. Restoring from an iTunes backup will just restore those ungodly files back into it.

Could be the battery, but without opening it up and disconnecting the battery you won't know. Could also be some kind of serious corruption in the flash, affecting the initial series of processes that load at boot. A jailbreak gone awry could cause this, since they typically insert themselves into the boot process or otherwise try to modify it.

I got a new tablet that whenever I connect it via USB to my computer, the connection rapidly and randomly disconnects then reconnects repeatedly

I have tried other USB cords on the tablet, other USB devices on the PC, and they all work fine.

Is there a way to extend a router's signal using two wireless routers without having the 2 routers connected?
Everything I seem to find seems to require the two routers to be attached via cable.
I (hopefully) want one wireless router to "repeat" the signal in a long basement apartment with shitty coverage.
The guy who has the base router and modem in his room is a bit of a bitch about having any cables going out of his room.

The main router nor secondary routers need to support repeater mode if you string them together via cat5. All you have to do is give the two routers the same name, same encryption method, same passkey, and disable DHCP on the secondary router.

don't need to support.

Its only if you're stupid enough to use WDS that they need to support WDS, and have changes made on all routers to enable WDS, and generally hope and pray that nothing goes wrong and knocks WDS offline (which it will, regularly).
