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.

Its probably something to do with a surge in current caused by the load of the blown fuse circuit being removed, raising the amperage available to the remaining circuits, which may then draw more than their previous amount depending on the devices in use. Incandescents shine brighter because they draw more current and pop pop pop.

Not sure if that's whats at work but it makes sense if you have a house full of old electrical devices.

I have a pioneer dvl-919 laserdisc player and i cannot get the component output to display colors on my 70" vizio tv, it will only put out black and white on it thru that output.
I have tried both the lasedisc and dvd parts and same happens.
The composite outputs works perfectly fine and display colors thru both player functions.
The component cables are good, i have tried other cables and same results. There is no way i can find to change input settings on the tv or player, the tv says 480i for that input.
I bought a component to hdmi cable thing and it made no difference.
I took the player apart and checked the connections inside and on the circut board and there isnt anything loose or broken in there.

Im stumped, what do i do/try next?

Its not a hertz problem, it doesnt use component output for the laserdisc portion of the device, only composite according to the manual for it. Im too braindead to figure out the circutboard diagrams in the service manual to see if its at all possible to make it work.
I never tried the dvd player on it to see if it works at all and took the "ghetto" route of just running it thru a dvd recorder to upscale the video to composite.

What Program is Best for Decrypting Opera Login Data Files? Garrett 23/10/18(Wed)20:54 No. 22931 ID: 34938d [Reply]

File 169765525874.jpg - (24.35KB , 443x480 , nuclear-explosion.jpg )

So at the beginning of this year my laptop started to fail and I had to send it into PC world for repair. Not long before I did so I was made to change the password for my Google account. I have always relied on web browsers to remember my passwords for some stupid reason. I was able to copy the contents of my C Drive before I did so and so I thought that I would be able to recover my passwords and such easily. Yet I found that opera now encrypts you passwords based on you dapai code and login details. This was never the case before and it seems stupidly paranoid that go to such lengths. I know them all except the one that has been changed yet that password is pretty vital.
So I have spent months looking into this, first I thought that the keys hadn’t copied over but they were hidden and I do have the DPAPI master keys and CREDHIST, I also have found a way to view the encrypted passwords and the ones that are the same are encrypted in similar way so that should also make the password easier to find. Yet I still have not found a program that I could use.
Windows password recovery program tells me that I entered my password wrong even though I entered it in right, DataProtectionDecryptor gives me “Failed to extract the encryption key” and mimikatz gives me Error kull_m_dpapi_unprotect_blob ; CryptDecrypt(0x80090005), I also found a bunch of linux and python troon programs that claim to be able to do what I am looking for but they require so many addon programs to be installed that you loose track.
What am I doing wrong here? What is the best program that can do what I am looking for?

Further update I have been trying to decrypt the login data with Windows Password Recovery but it tells me that the device is TPM-protected which very strange because I never activated TPM or Bitlocker on my previous computer. Moreover I am able to view and edit most of the files on the C-Drive back ups and I also looked at the drive with DiskGenius and it is unable to find any traces of Bitlocker. Is this a problem with program or was TPM somehow enabled on my previous computer without my knowing?

Another possibility is that the master keys are encrypted with my Microsoft encryption password which can be extracted with MadPassExt. However I have tried using this program and despite entering my Microsoft account password exactly right it still says “Failed to decrypt Microsoft account cache file with the specified password.”, What am doing wrong here? Nirsoft themselves give very little advice on such matters.

I use Monterey 12.6.7, Zotero and Audacity just started looking like shit someday for no reason. I don't remember doing anything out of the ordinary when it happened, just playing gaimu. Other programs like Calibre, LibreWolf, and everything else I can think of work fine, so what the fuck might have caused this?

Wanting to buy an entry setup for pc, but I don't know if buying used or new would be optimal. Is there really any differences out there?

Anonymous 23/08/26(Sat)00:39 No. 22926 ID: afb832

Never bought one used, but a good first point is to consider your main use case. If you will mostly be doing sit down driving, flying, etc. sims, something like the HP Reverb G2 is low cost with good resolution and inside out tracking. If you will be focused on more room scale games, a valve index is a great solution without getting over the top expensive, but will cost nearly double what the Reverb G2 does. If you need something like the latter, but new is out of your budget range, I don't think there's a real issue shopping for used.

I have an external WD My Passport 2EE2 USB external drive and was wondering if I could use PerfecDisk Professional to defragment it?
I haven't really found anything that says either way.

Perfectdisk also says it will defrag SSDs but I am a little leery.
