I know this isn't really tech help but it fits best here

I want to get a pair of high end headphones but i'm wondering... on every single pair of headphones i've ever had, one ear would eventually die. Do HEHs have this problem? I don't want to shell out $200+ for something that will fuck up.

This looks pretty decent, but i cant say i have tried them myself.

I have had the same issue, and ended up paying $40 for a pair of durable earbuds on amazon, and it was shipped with an already broken earbud. I might try these ones myself.

Plug into an external monitor.
Video good = Screen or cable is bad.
No Video = GPU or Mobo is bad.
Cable is the cheapest to replace but from my experience if you see anything on the screen then the cable is good.
Screens run about $40ish and aren't "too" hard to replace if you don't know what you're doing.
See if that model has a YouTube disassembly video to help.

TL;DR
I'd bet your screen is broken. ~$40 fix. EZPZ

Guessing that I was right. Did think it was the screen that was the issue, lucky I kept my Windows XP monitor. Thanks Anon.

My friend picked me up a used Nexus & tablet and all I know is it's an OS and Cyanogen mod (s) behind)
I ran a util (Upgrade for Android Protool that told me my system didn't meet the requirements for either Lollipop or marshmallow... (but it's weird as it says my ver is 4.1 not 4.4
it's running Cyanogen mod 10.2.1-groupler
and I think the current ver is 12. something or 13.
The updater can't see / find any of the updates.
I was wondering how to update from this to the latest version without wiping my system.
My android ver is 4.1 and no, I don't know how or if I can upgrade that higher as well...

Can anyone spoon-feed me what the hell I can do with this?

Why not wipe system?
What model is that device?
You can backup apps with TitaniumBackup, look on onhax dot net for the full apk

Forgive me if I am out of place, but could I get some help with my typewriter? The return button doesn't seem to work. It works okay, but it's hard to get the lines of text to line up without the return button.

How can I check the spring tension?
I'm sorry; I don't know how typewriters work.

If you don't know how, don't try. You'll only distort the spring further. Take it to a watch repair shop if you can't find a specialist near you, they can normally deal with this sort of thing.

1) aquire parts diagram
2) aquire tools
3) disassemble
4) clean
5) inspect
6) replace parts
7) reassemble

This is the process I've used to fix mechanical type things I've never had experience with otherwise.

Things like kitchen appliances,large house appliances,small gas motors for lawn equipment, printers and other office machines. All approached using the method above.

No it works perfectly well on any Ubuntu flavour if you have Steam installed.

SteamOS is just Valve's Ubuntu-based distro. It might be the only officially supported distro for lots of games, but it doesn't in any way mean it's the only distro a given game will run in, even more with Steam Runtime being a thing.

Sometimes when I download zipped game osts/albums/other things with what is supposed to be Japanese filenames, they look like this. It's kind of annoying. Is there any way I can fix this?

Install and enable eastern fonts.

At the moment you've either not got them installed or the OS hasn't been told to actually use them




Remove OEM bios password Anonymous 15/11/19(Thu)21:33 No. 21971 ID: f02fa8 [Reply]

I have an Acer Aspire V5-571P that stopped booting to windows one night when I lost power. When I turn it on it just keeps cycling "Diagnosing startup" and "Launching automatic repair" *restarts* looping over and over.

My first instinct was to go into the UEFI bios and set the boot order so I can just reinstall windows, but when I hit F2 to enter bios I get this shit. It asks me for a bios unlock code, gives me a hint, and after three tries it changes the "hint" to something else.

How do I remove / find the bios unlock code? I called acer but they want me to mail it to them AND pay $200.

What about simply removing the CMOS battery? Wouldn't that wipe the password?

This isn't a BIOS password, this is a system lock because the BIOS password was entered incorrectly too many times. And besides, on everything except absolute shit-tier hardware they write the passwords to flash now. Remove the battery, password still remains. If you're really lucky there's a separate password clear jumper but most systems don't include them anymore, since businesses want to lock idiots from using their stolen hardware.

Should still try it. There's no good reason not to.

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?


>>
Anonymous 15/10/14(Wed)05:37 No. 21955 ID: 0d657a

have you enabled nonfree drivers on other distros to see if it pulls in what's needed to make the trackpad work?
