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'm having issues with TOR anymore. I'm on a VPN trying to go to sites and it all gives me 501s. Do the addresses change constantly and that's why I can't connect or what?

I had some viral problems due to a bunch of malware lading itself when going to a site (strangely not a porn site - the supposedly "legit" site of some iso mounting software)
Anyway I ended up dealing with that through a system restore and now UAC seems to pop up every ime I start just about anything. - from CCleaner to mu-torrent. (oneo of my drives also will not let me write a torrent to it either but first things first.
- Any way to reduce the UAC settings (which are on the lowest before turning the ting off) or whitelist certain files?
- did I suddenly lose admin for this account or what?

WIN 7 by the way.

Well, that's actually complicated. I can tell you that issues with devices and PC are quite common for me, and it's a challenge to find a decent solution.

Anonymous 22/07/10(Sun)14:09 No. 22871 ID: 591b66

You can't even imagine how relatable it is because I have to contact guys from howly almost every week, the problems I have with my gadgets and something like that happen way too randomly. Recently, this article https://howly.com/article/how-to-fix-the-no-password-provided-for-aol-error-on-iphone/ saved me, but most of the time, I contact specialists because they manage to fix almost every issue in no time.

can malware fuck up external devices' drivers or firmware?

i was installing a pirated game (teehee) and all of a sudden i loose screen, mouse, keyboard and hdd signal. i make no big deal out of it since my baby is around 10yo so i just restart it
when it boots up, i open my browser without worries and i loose signal again. i try to restart it but now it remains signal-less. cant even get into the bios nor use a preinstall enviroment since it doesnt recognize any external devices
halp? i even tried to fix this shit by removing the mobo battery for around 10 minutes, to no avail

specs: generic 550w psu
1tb hdd
4gb x2 ddr3 ram
apu a10 5800k cpu
a55bm-a/usb3 mobo
had this thing since 2014
ask away for anything else you need

It sounds likely that you had a hardware component like your motherboard fail, and that it happened while installing a pirated game was a coincidence

Anonymous 22/06/16(Thu)20:04 No. 22868 ID: effe7d

very likely. possibly the mobo or the psu
the hdd is ruled out, a friend helped me test it and its peachy

Dell T3600 CPU fan upgrade Anonymous 22/04/22(Fri)21:48 No. 22860 ID: 7f7d3d [Reply]

So I've bought a Noctua NF-A8 PWM to replace the fan. But it has a 4-pin connector.

So I bought a 5pin female to 4pin male converter. And it was marketed as Dell-compatible. But the computer says that no CPU fan is connected. It only moves during these surges during startups. I can only make it run by using an external power source (that makes me lose one SATA power connector.)

Print double side PDF on macOS? Anonymous 21/10/21(Thu)19:47 No. 22841 ID: 5ed243 [Reply]

File 16348384297.png - (375.01KB , 860x859 , 569-5697074_earth-globe-area-day-cartoon-free-down.png )

I'm using a printer that doesn't have a native support for double sided printouts. You have to put back the printouts.

I've got a PDF that has no page numbers at all. Probably because it was supposed to be read on a pad. So is there a way of adding numbers to the printout, or is the only alternative to first make a document with the right numbering and then make the PDF-printout on them?

Pic unrelated, but cute.

>because everything that makes sense must be killed
OP here. Yeah. Reminds me of scanners. In the 00s it was common that you could first pick the area to be scanned. But now it's often like some kind of auto-scan that just *assumes* a lot of shit.

Regarding printing, I finally gave up. I had a relatively good run. But it wasn't worth it. So I bought the book instead.

Pages & Contacts - importing adresses from pages/text files & usin Anonymous 22/04/05(Tue)22:44 No. 22856 ID: ae5046

File 164919145985.png - (2.98MB , 1688x1052 , postcard13-back.png )

Re-using my thread on macOS-printouts. ;-)

I want to have the same message to everyone, but I don't want to type out every adress individually. So how do I integrate a Contact group into the design?

And I can export adresses from Contacts to a text file or to a Numbers document. But how do I import? Preferably from Numbers, as it's easier.

Thanks in advance! :-)

Oh, the subject should be:

>Is this kind of thing even worth it??
If you were building a system and already had SO-DIMMs, maybe.

Otherwise, no, just buy RAM.

Clearance could be an issue, DIMM slots are typically very close to the CPU now and all but the weakest of air cooled HSFs will overhang the slots.

That works different since you need to find a way to thrive when it comes to your works and that is what i can say is a great job to deal with you have to be better and do a great job on your works since you know that there are a lot of people.

they work fine, don't expect to run 4 with no issues. I've taken 4GB DDR2 sodimm's and paired them up with old 775 itx boards.
