• Should I get fiber internet or stick with my 250MB/s??

    I typically am getting between 280 and 300 Mbps with Comcast. Internet page loads etc. are just fine speed wise. Depending upon what your computer is (technically) you may or may not realize any change in how quickly page loads occur. So the computer is somewhat of a limiting factor.

    I typically am getting between 280 and 300 Mbps with Comcast. Internet page loads etc. are just fine speed wise. Depending upon what your computer is (technically) you may or may not realize any change in how quickly page loads occur. So the computer is somewhat of a limiting factor. If you are seeing typical pages loads of only a few seconds, then in my mind you're simply blowing money for the additional speed. However, if you constantly have several computers actively browsing the internet at the same time then paying for the extra speed should potentially benefit the page load speed they are all seeing. This would also include streaming and downloading but otherwise I doubt you'll notice any really meaningful difference as a single user. My opinion, without knowing all the details of your situation, would be to save your money.

If all is well in your ear this should "unblock" your ear(s).

  • CPU Problem...?

    I'd return it for exchange. It sounds like there is something going on in the motherboard or with the socket that is soldered into the motherboard. I personally wouldn't want that motherboard or cpu. Either one or the other is definitely defective.

  • Where can i find audio out and audio in cables?

    There are no specific "audio in" or "audio out" cables. They're just called audio cables. However, you do have to be careful as to what size the jack and plug are. Just do a search on "audio cables".

  • What is the purpose of using Safe Mode on the computer?

    When you boot into the Safe Mode the only software that boots up is Windows. It only allows ".exe" files in Windows to boot and none of your other programs, or execute files included in malware.

    When you boot into the Safe Mode the only software that boots up is Windows. It only allows ".exe" files in Windows to boot and none of your other programs, or execute files included in malware. That's the case whether you are running Windows XP. 7, 8, 8.1, 10, etc. The advantage to doing this is that you can easily eradicate any malware from your computer using your antivirus software or most other antivirus/antimalware programs. In Windows 10 they sort of made getting into and out of Safe Mode a bit of a horror show. If your computer boots up okay then you have to use the Run command and type in msconfig, select the boot tab, check the Safe Mode box and then reboot the computer. It will boot into the Safe Mode. It will always boot into safe mode unless you once again use the Run box, type in msconfig and hit enter, select the Boot tab, uncheck the Safe Mode box, and then reboot the computer. It will boot as in a normal boot up. It's quite convoluted compared to past versions of Windows. If your computer won't boot up the process is to start the computer, and as it starts it's boot the boot will fail. Reboot the computer again, and again, and again and it will eventually understand that you want the Safe Mode and should boot up that way. Once in Safe Mode do whatever to repair/restore your Windows software or clean out any malware that may be preventing you from booting up. Sorry this is so long but it was necessary to outline the process of getting into and out of Safe Mode. Hope this helps.

  • How can I save my touch-screen keyboard’s life???

    Best answer: Hold down the power button for 7 to 10 seconds and the computer will turn off. Give it a moment and then reboot it. Since it's a Word document it will not boot up as part of the boot routine. This should get you back to where you can work with your computer. Hope this helps!

    Best answer: From what I've read about that Model Dell, it's pretty well known for it's noisy fans. That is not unusual when a desktop is being cooled by a minimal amount of fans. Take a look at the attached article about it. It doesn't appear that there are any spots in the case to add extra fans, and I'd doubt that the Motherboard even has additional fan headers to accommodate extra fans. This is kind of a crazy situation since an i7 can produce quite a bit of heat when it's working. One thing you could try is to see if you can find a water cooled fan that will work with the Dell CPU setup and case size. If the internal hardware is standard equipment you might consider buying a different case and move the hardware into it if the fan noise bugs you that badly. Those are the only two options that come to mind. Hope this helps some. Here's the article I looked at: https://www.pcmag.com/review/356700/dell...

    Best answer: The easiest way in my opinion is to use a docking station to mount your hard drive in. Of course you'll have to purchase a docking station but they are not expensive. The only major thing you'll need is a 2nd computer to use. The process would be to remove the hdd from your current computer. Plug the USB docking station into the 2nd computer you are using and make sure it is turned on. Plug the hdd into the docking station. Watch the LED on the docking station as it normally will blink until your hdd is fully accessible. Once the led stops blinking you can access your hdd and burn your data to a DVD, flash drive, etc. Accessing the hdd in the docking station is no different than when you access the files/data in your external hdd. Hope this helps.

Other than those being able to be put to use in upgrading it to something usable, it's really nothing but a good canoe anchor in disguise. To be totally honest, I'd recommend that you spend the $10 and take it to a local recycling facility. It's really not even worth the $20 I mentioned.

    It's simply a "reboot" switch. All it does is recycle the power to the computer so that it boots from scratch. It does nothing to the bios.

    Your download speeds are directly affected by the "upload speed" of the person/site allowing you to download from them. An additional factor is, in the case of cable how many people in your neighborhood are on the cable during the time you are downloading. On the flip side if you are downloading using your phone companies lines then your distance from the nearest switching station affects your download speeds. The closer the better in this case.

  • What is the best product for increasing internet signal strength?

    Best answer: A "range extender" will do the trick for you. It picks up a weak signal and rebroadcasts it at a much higher signal strength. You simple plug it into an electrical wall socket and does the rest. You can find them on amazon.com for around $20 to $25 or so. Check them out.
