    Best answer: How to remove password login from Windows 10: Use Windows 10 without entering your password We wouldn't usually recommend removing security from your mobile devices, but when it comes to the computers you use only at home having to enter a password every time they go into standby mode is a major pain. Fortunately, bypassing the Windows 10 password login is easy. To use Windows 10 without entering your Microsoft account password complete the following steps (illustrated below): • Type netplwiz in the Start menu search bar, then click the top result to run the command (right click on Start Button and click on Search). • Remove the check mark from the box next to 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer' and hit Apply • Enter your username and password, then re-enter your password. Click Ok • Click Ok again to save the changes

  • Do computer chips have gold in them?

    Best answer: Generally speaking ... No. Since the inside of a computer components are essentially a vacuum there is no air. Because of that no "oxidation" can occur normally.

    Best answer: Generally speaking ... No. Since the inside of a computer components are essentially a vacuum there is no air. Because of that no "oxidation" can occur normally. Gold is normally used for external contact points, such as on the edge of a circuit board to create a contact point that does not oxidize in our normal environment. The gold plating on contact points, such as the edge of a circuit board, is typically around 50 millionths of an inch thick. Hope this helps.

    Best answer: 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.

  • Is it possible static electricity fried my motherboard?

    Best answer: It is highly unlikely that static electricity fried your Mobo. Static electricity affects electronic hardware much differently than how it feel when you walk across the carpet and tough a door knob. It's simply not as powerful as you'd think, since it bites pretty darn good at that door knob. What makes the Mobo essentially safe from static electricity is the fact that it is an electronic assembly with hundreds of components installed in the Mobo's circuits. When static electricity discharges to an assembled circuit board it is fighting the resistance of all the components involved in the circuit it hits. That in essence stops the voltage from flowing through that circuit. The other thing is that static electricity does not have the power (amperage) to push it through all of those components. So a static discharge normally won't hurt a fully assembled circuit board (Mobo) but it can easily fry a stand alone component that might be lying on a work bench. You could have a problem with either the power supply or the Mobo. Is there a reset button on the power supply? If so reset and see if your computer boots. If it does not boot, I'd recommend removing the Mobo from the chassis and give it one heck of a visual inspection looking for a burnt carbon spot. If you find one then most likely you'll need a new Mobo.

  • The fan my Gigabyte RX 550 (AMD) card is loud is that normal?

    Best answer: One thing you can do is to open the case up and remove the cooler from the top of the GPU. Then take a damp Q-Tip and clean the fan blades. Dust on the blades can change the air flow over the blades or even change the balance ever so slightly that you'll get that whrrrrrr-ing noise. Try that, if that doesn't fix it get a new... show more
    Best answer: One thing you can do is to open the case up and remove the cooler from the top of the GPU. Then take a damp Q-Tip and clean the fan blades. Dust on the blades can change the air flow over the blades or even change the balance ever so slightly that you'll get that whrrrrrr-ing noise. Try that, if that doesn't fix it get a new cooler. And by the way, if you remove the cooler from the GPU you MUST clean the old thermal paste off the GPU and base of the cooler and replace it with new paste ... this is absolutely necessary. Also, formatting the computer only affects the software and does absolutely nothing for the hardware such as a fan.

  • 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!

    Best answer: You know as well as we do that to get a laptop that is capable of doing CPU intensive operations you'll have to lay out some substantial money and you'll most likely have excessive heat problems as the laptop get older due to internal dust and degradation of the thermal paste. You can easily build a desktop that will exceed what a laptop can do for a lot less money. In general if you compare the price of a laptop that has the capabilities you want and then compare the price of building a desktop of equivalent or better specs, you'll usually save about $300 by building the desktop if you shop for the parts individually. I'm a true desktop fan when it comes to performance. Laptops are okay for business, school, etc. but when you want a screaming machine then a high end desktop is the way to go. JMHO

I seriously doubt that the cooler you've chosen will keep it PROPERLY cooled. My opinion is that the case will be too small with just that one fan and no additional fan mount places, and I'd suspect a small motherboard like that will not have headers (connectors) for additional fans. I'd find another case, and mobo to support that CPU.

  • What will happen to minecraft after windows 10?

    Best answer: Win 10 is going to be around for a long time. Microsoft announced when it first came out that it was the last iteration of Windows that they would do. The idea is to keep the name and do updates to it several times a year. So don't look for a new operating system from Microsoft anytime soon.

    Best answer: Just so you know, your hard drive is not empty. All the data that was there before you "formatted" the drive is actually still there. It's only been tagged "okay to overwrite this space". To actually delete all that data you need to "wipe" the drive. There are several programs out there that will do the job. If you have and use CCleaner you can actually wipe the drive using it. If you don't have it you can get it the FREE version at download.com Once it's installed simply open the program and click on the "Tools" icon on the left had side of the window. In the next window click on "Drive Wiper" in the list of things you can do. In the following window select the drive by clicking in the box next to the proper drive letter. e.g. C:\; or D:\; etc. When asked if you want to continue click on "Yes" and follow any further actions you need to take to launch the wiping function. NOTE: This is a very slow process because every bit on the hard drive has to be rewritten as a one (1) or a zero (0). The 1's and 0's are not code in any way and truly constitute a wipe once all the bits are changed to them. I'd guess that if you have a 1 TB hard drive that it will take around 12 hours or so to wipe. The best thing to do is let the wipe action occur over night by leaving your computer on. 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.
