    Best answer: I think you should relax a little. First and foremost you don't really think that they would sell you a new computer and not sell you an OS unless you specifically declined having an OS installed. I can almost guarantee that it will come with Win 10 installed. Worst case ... get on the phone and call them to find out what OS will be installed on it. If they happen to say none, see if you can work a deal with them for Win 10. Or if it actually will come with no OS then you have time to get online and order a copy. So don't panic, just give them a call !!!

  • How long does the water cooler last, and how often do you have to clean it?

    Best answer: The water cooler employs a closed water system so none of it leaks out and nothing gets in unless it gets damaged some how. With that said, it should last as long as the fans on it work okay. The only thing I recommend for maintenance would be to cleans the blades of the fans, and maybe clean the CPU and Cooler surfaces and put some... show more
    Best answer: The water cooler employs a closed water system so none of it leaks out and nothing gets in unless it gets damaged some how. With that said, it should last as long as the fans on it work okay. The only thing I recommend for maintenance would be to cleans the blades of the fans, and maybe clean the CPU and Cooler surfaces and put some new thermal compound down. One other thing I'd recommend would be to use a little program called Core Temp. Google it and it will give you the web site. The program is FREE. Once you have it and install it set it for degrees F or C as you prefer, and click the box that displays it on the Task Bar. I don't believe it's dead accurate on the exact temp but it's very close. The important thing is to look at the temps several times a day to get used to the temps it displays. If you do this, it will be easy for you to recognize any rise in temp that persists. If that happens clean the air intakes of the case and clean all of the fans. It's also a good idea when you are doing that to dust the entire inside of the case and all compoents.

Found one for my wife on amazon for $850 and it included the stylus. Watch the offers some don't include the stylus and it's $80 for one retail. Also on amazon you can find the magnetic keyboard for the Surface Pro also. The keyboard acts as cover for the screen and can be flipped backwards so that you use the Surface as a 12.3" tablet. It's a very nice rig if the price fits your budget.

  • Why is there no A: or B: drives on my computer?

    Best answer: The labeling of the primary drive goes back decades when using a computer required two 5.5" floppy disks to run the computer. One floppy was the Operating System, and the other was whatever program you wanted to use. So A & B labels were used then. So when the next generation of drives came along C:\ was the logical choice because if it were called A or B it would just confuse people. Because those types of drives are no longer used, their labeling of A and B simply fell by the wayside. Since most newer computers have places for two hard drives a 2nd hard drive would be called D:\ When no 2nd hard drive is present but CD/DVD drives are present they are labeled with the next available letters such as D:\ and E:\ If a 2nd hard drive is present then the CD/DVD drives become E:\ and F:\ I hope this helps some to understand the naming convention within the BIOS of your computer.

  • Can I downshift on a motorcycle right before braking or does it have to be at the same time?

    Best answer: From my experience in riding, the downshift assists in the whole braking action so I would say, yes downshift and allow the transmission and brakes to slow you down and or stop your bike. However there is a caveat to this. If your bike is going to fast for a specific gear then you need to slow down some and then downshift. e.g. if you... show more
    Best answer: From my experience in riding, the downshift assists in the whole braking action so I would say, yes downshift and allow the transmission and brakes to slow you down and or stop your bike. However there is a caveat to this. If your bike is going to fast for a specific gear then you need to slow down some and then downshift. e.g. if you are doing e.g. 40 mph then you don't want to drop it into 2nd gear as it could cause the bike to skid as the rear wheel gets somewhat locked up by the transmission. So you have to know the speed ranges at which your bike will comfortably handle the downshift.

  • Will a 1600Mhz DDR3 RAM work on 1333Mhz motherboard?

    Best answer: When you add different speed sticks into the RAM slots the RAM will always run at the slower sticks' speed. So even though you've added more RAM don't expect it to run at 1600 MHz. It will run at 1333 MHz. Just make sure that your Motherboard specs allow both speeds of RAM.

  • How do I recover a lost document?

    Best answer: The first part of the issue is that you didn't name it or save it before you lost it. So even a normal search of your hard drive won't find anything. Secondly, since you didn't save it, anything remaining on your hard drive are most likely just fragments of the original text/data that you're looking for. Here's the third part of the problem. Since you didn't save the "document" it didn't get a tag that stops it from being overwritten. Without that tag the space is available to be overwritten by anything that you do on your computer. So you may as well give it up as you won't be able to recover it. Sorry about that but those are the hard facts!

What it does is allow you to reduce the amount of blue light, which causes eye strain and headaches, and allows you to introduce some red light to reduce the glare. It's an absolutely great feature. Do a search on it and you'll find lots of info on it. Hope this helps some.

(1) Put it in a constantly warm place such as on top of a refrigerator or something similar. The higher temps will help dry it out faster. (2) If you have a fan you can set it up so it blows across the keyboard. The moving air will help to evaporate any moisture. (3) If you can do both it's even better! (4) Be cautious and don't be in a big hurry to turn it one. I'd give it at least 2 or 3 days in a warm environment to drive off the moisture. Hope this helps. Good Luck!

    Best answer: USB 2 and USB 3 interfaces are the same. The only visible difference is that normally if you look into the front end a USB 3 has a blue plastic tab in it. What I've found over the years is that sometimes the interfaces don't quite line up exactly right and all I do is rock the item in my hand (e.g. flash drive) up and down gently while pushing in and that will usually help it to mate up. You have to understand that USB interfaces aren't precision instruments so sometimes you'll get a little interference from one of them.

    Best answer: The easiest possible fix is to clear out the dust in the fan if you can. The best way to do this is with a can of compressed air and/or a vacuum cleaner. The fan is on the back left hand corner when you are facing the screen. The air intake in on the back corner and the air exhaust is on the rear corner of the left hand side. Turn the laptop off !!! With a can of compressed air blow into the air intake on the back corner of the laptop. If you see dust coming out the side keep blowing until you don't see any. Now reverse the compressed air flow and blow in the exhaust opening. Sometimes by reversing this powerful air flow you'll release more dust off of the fan impeller blades. If you use the vacuum cleaner you use it on the exhaust port on the rear left corner and suck air through the fan. Also reverse the air flow here and suck air through the fan at the air intake port. Give "dust removal" a try. It's frequently the easy fix to an over heating issue. If this doesn't rectify the problem you may need to take it to a tech and let them solve it. It could also easily be the thermal paste between the CPU and it's heatsink. Hope this helps.

    Best answer: Heat from gaming is a common cause of computer crashes. So I think you are on the right train of thought. So two things are critical. #1 is to ensure that you are getting the heat conducted off the CPU and #2 is that you have enough air going through the case to assist in keeping the CPU at lower temps. What you need to do is look at the Motherboard and see how many fan headers it has. The one closest to the CPU is always used for the CPU cooler fan. Hopefully you'll have at least 3 more on the MoBo. Also, check your tower for places to mount fans. You should be able to get at least 3 or 4 more fans into it. Just make sure you have a couple of fans pulling cool air in from the front or bottom and 1 or 2 fans pushing air out the back or top. The fan is the power supply normally assists some in moving air out the back but you do need more than just that. That's where the additional fans come in. Just make sure you keep air flow in mind as far as the direction of the fans is concerned. After you get them mounted just dangle a kleenex in front of the fan to see if it's pulling air in or pushing air out. NOTE: Fans have an arrow on them showing air flow direction! A key to all of this is to get a water cooler for your CPU. They run in the $100 range for a good one and you can usually find a box of 4 fans for around $30. You may need to buy fan cables or even a fan "Y" cable to attach more than 1 fan to a MoBo fan header. Hope this helps some.
