• How can I stop my iPad Pro’s touchscreen from becoming unresponsive so frequently?

    Best answer: Clean it a couple of times a week at least. Think about it ... every time you touch it you leave body oils behind. The next time you touch that spot there is body oil between your finger and the screen preventing actual contact. So just keep the screen clean or body oils, coffee, soda, etc. Hope this helps!

  • Is the sun actually glitching out?

    Yes ... it is in process of burning out and will eventually become a red giant star. The really good news is that we all have about 5,000,000,000 years before it becomes a red giant. So for our life spans it's a "not to worry" situation. What is most dangerous for us as a human civilization are rogue asteroids, and volcano's. ... show more

If the Yellowstone volcano fully erupts mankind is in real trouble. So don't worry much about the Sun, just pray that Yellowstone doesn't fully erupt.

Insert your SD Card in the reader and put the Killdisk DVD in the drive and boot up the computer. You'll have to do a couple of approvals as Killdisk boots up. Once it's booted you should be able to select the SD card reader since it should be recognized as a drive. Select that drive and do a full wipe of the SD Card. Be warned this type of wipe is a slow process. I recommend that you run it overnight. This won't hurt your computer to run over night. I've been using Killdisk for many years and it does a great job. Hope this helps.

Banks, lawyers, etc. use laser printers since I believe they make better long term records and they don't smear or bleed it they happen to get liquid on them.

    Technically I believe are both correct as far as sentence structure is concerned. However, I think in the 2nd sentence the word "publish" is misleading in the sense that publish is more commonly used for printed documents and not so much for videos. The first sentence would be more appropriate for that action. So that's my opinion... show more

  • Could this be a scam on eBay?

    Sounds to me like a seller to totally stay away from. I avoid any seller on eBay or Amazon with such little sales history and small number of reviews. I'll bet if you watch the sales on the various laptop manufacturers for a couple of weeks you'll probably find a much better deal.

  • Can I sell the extra modem that I got from Optimum? Do they put some kind of lock on it to keep it from working with other customers?

    You might want to review your monthly bill and see what they have you responsible for... you might not like the price they'll charge you if you're accountable for it and you don't have it. It would really be smarter to just turn it in and quit looking for an easy dishonest buck!!!

    You don't say if it's a laptop or a desktop keyboard. However, if it's a keyboard for a desktop then most likely you can simply take it apart and clean it. Generally there is around a dozen screws that are accessible on the back side of the keyboard. Those need to be removed and you might have to pry it open with something thin and flat. If it resists coming apart then look at the little rubber feet on the back. Those feet are nothing but stick on feet and there are probably more screws hidden under them. That is pretty common! If you remove the feet, store them on something plastic that's nice and smooth. Something like the frame around your monitor will do nicely. Don't stick the whole surface of the feet to it, just one end. Once you get the keyboard opened up, then it's all pretty simple. The whole top frame with the keys will come off in one piece and you'll find a "rubber" layer underneath the keys that function as the springs to push the keys back up. Just lift that off and you can wash it. Also wash the keyboard with hot water really well to remove the sticky substance. Once you've washed both items then you need to ensure that you get the water off of them. The rubber spring layer is real easy since you can just roll it up in a towel and that will do a nice job. Also put it in front of a fan for an hour to evaporate any wetness if you're not comfortable with just using the towel. The keyboard is a bit more work. Shake it vigorously so that the keys slop back and forth to help get any residual water out of them. Even bang it against a carpeted floor. As a final touch I usually use a can of compressed air to finish the job. If you have a compressor in your home even better, use that to dry the inside of the keys out . This will do a nice job of cleaning your keyboard. Hope this helps.

    Floppy drives are resting with all the dead dinosaurs! They've all but gone out of existence. You can still buy one and buy disks for them but they're simply not worth the trouble. You should have someone show you how to use "memory sticks" as you call them. They are so simple to use, and just like a floppy you simply tell the computer to copy whatever files you want on them to it. Just like you'd do with putting those files on a floppy disk. Also, you should learn to burn your files/data onto DVD discs. It's a much safer way to store data and each disk holds 4.6 gigabytes of data. I have my entire computer backed up on an external hard drive and on a 65 GB "memory stick". How cool is that! Come into the 21st Century and dump making new floppy disks. It's simply not the way to go anymore. Hope this helps convince you!!!

    It doesn't matter if it's a Mac or a PC, if you don't do any maintenance on a computer they all get slow, choppy, freezes, blue screens, and less "fluid" as you term it. There are three programs that I use for everyday maintenance. They are: CCleaner, Advanced System Care, and if you have a rotationg hard disk drive (HDD) then you also need Smart Defrag. All three of those programs are available at download.com and are all FREE for functional copies. Go there and download them, install them, and use them. I recommend that each day when you shut down your computer that you run CCleaner and after it's finished and you delete all the junk it finds, then run Advanced System Care which will do a more detailed analysis and repair of issues it finds. Smart Defrag should be run about twice a week (in my opinion) if you have a HDD. If you have a Solid State Drive (SSD) then you don't need to run a defrag of your hard drive. Don't always blame the computer ... take a look at what you are doing to help it stay running well. Hope this helps.

But my major suspicion is that your CPU simply isn't capable of running the games efficiently. The RAM doesn't help the processing speed it only helps in being able to do all of the "read/write" functions withing the RAM itself and not use the hard drive for that purpose. You're really spending money to try to revive a dead dog, so to speak. Win 98 is good enough to run games like Solitare and those simple games but not today's games. Good luck.

  • How are hackers able to steal data if it has been encrypted?

    In a sense it's similar to reverse engineering. That is when you take something new and innovative apart to see how it works and then produce a similar product.

    In a sense it's similar to reverse engineering. That is when you take something new and innovative apart to see how it works and then produce a similar product. So data thieves utilize software that analyzes the code to see repetitive characters (letters & numbers). Once that is done and the frequency of use is determined then you can assume certain letters would be used in many of those repetitive instances. Say like the letter "Q" would be used instead of "E" or the letter "S", and so forth. So in the English language the frequency of letter usage is a known thing so the software will substitute in the letters that fit those frequency of use patterns. Not every letter can be determined but in many cases it's easy to guess the correct word with only a few of the letters. So the software may fill those letters in, or a code reviewer may select letters in see how they fit. Once some of the words are "decoded" then a pattern is usually developed in the word usage also and can be further used to assume/guess words to fill in the blanks. My explanation is quite simplistic in respect to how it's all actually done but I think I've made it fairly easy to understand. Hope this helps some.
