    I have broken at least 3 laptops because I fell over it, trip over it because of the cord. I had 2 laptops with a short cord and I tripped over it many times, causing for all of them to crack on the hinge. They are cheap laptops like $400 toshiba or Lenovo. I got a new laptop or 'ideapad' and this one I have now, is smaller and thinner so I hope I will not have that same issue. So far because its a thinner and smaller design i have not dropped it but I tripped i over the cord today....

  • About my Gaming Laptop, its Graphics Card and How to Understand Upgrading?

    Hello anyone that s able to help, I have a gaming laptop I got a few months back, it is an ASUS G75VW and it has a NVidia GeForce GTX 660m 2gb graphics card. I was never smart with gaming pc s and laptops and how to fully understand all of them. But I got something cheap so I could have fun with gaming. I was getting curious with graphics cards and how diverse they seem to be, I was wondering if I m able to buy a different graphics card to make it slightly better nothing too drastic. To get a grasp of the situation, it can run overwatch on high perfectly, skyrim seems it can get better, but the witcher 3 and dark souls 3 have a tough time. I was going around searching to see what cheap graphics cards there are and found this one (EVGA - NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card). I m curious if its possible to swap them or not, if there s a different one I could get if the above one is not compatible, or any other solution? I appreciate any and all help and answers, I also apologize for the lengthy question, first time asking a question about this topic.

  • If you have a low end cpu and a cad rated GPU, would gaming on it matter?

    First off I have a low end CPU, probably rated for everyday tasks. I loaded the RAM on it with 2 8gb sticks 16gb max. I placed a graphic card in the computer that has 4GB dedicated memory and it was CAD rated, and intended for heavy graphic users. would gaming on it be a problem?

  • Headphones stopped working, what could be the problem?

    I always use my headphones with my laptop and it works just fine. Now, when I'm playing a video and plug them in, I can't hear the video with my headphones in. There's just no sound at all. When I take the headphones out from the laptop, I can hear it. Why did they stop working? What's the fix?

  • Which of these 2.5" SSD is better performance wise?

    Best answer: The Samsung has better I/O speeds and it's clearly a better drive. The Samsung Pro series is the Ultra Premium line and the EVO series is the Premium line.

    Best answer: The Samsung has better I/O speeds and it's clearly a better drive. The Samsung Pro series is the Ultra Premium line and the EVO series is the Premium line. The only other competitors drives that can come close to the 850 Pro and slightly beat the 850 EVO is the Crucial MX500 series and the Sandisk Extreme Pro series.

    The 850 Pro is overkill for the average user and the newer 860 Pro is Extreme overkill. The 850 EVO will last a very long time but I can't say the same for the Galax. In any sense, You're kinda comparing a Premium drive to almost a Generic drive here. The Galax isn't even close in terms of Terrabyte write cycles or I/O speeds. It just puts up good best case scenario numbers.

    People seem to be obsessed with Sequential Read and Write speeds but most people overlook the I/Ops.

  • I want my parents to buy me a new laptop, how do I forge a newsletter to make it seems like it's from school?

    Best answer: Schools do not make those demands upon parents. If you got a pencil and pen and paper that is all you need...to do the work in class. Computer is not a requirement. If you want, go and earn the money by WORKING for it. Or you can use the school computers....XP I believe.

    I have a lenovo tablet PC IdeaTab A3000-H. I haven't used it in a while, probably a month, so now, when I tried to plug it to charge it only shows the logo and nothing more. It won't show to battery charging or even turn a black screen. I left it to charge for a day but when I unplugged it the screen went black and it didn't want to turn on, no matter how long I pressed the button. Months ago I had it repaired (it had viruses), so I don't really want to waste money again. I will if needed, though. So, can you help me?

    Wow okay, been ages since I used Yahoo Answers but here goes. I have an old broken laptop, pretty intact except the keys are all broken because they got coffee spilled on them. I'm going to a shooting range soon and I really want to shoot my old laptop, but I know LCD screens contain mercury. It is almost definite if I shoot the laptop the mercury tubes will break, creating mercury gas. I do however own a gas mask I could wear. Should I say screw it and shoot the laptop with screen inside, or should I take the screen out of the laptop first, dispose of it properly and then shoot the other part of the laptop? (and no I am not going to recycle the entire thing)

    I have accidently deleted video files on my laptop of my son. I did it a few months ago but have recently realised what I have done. I have downloaded many things onto the hardrive since. I have tried a recovery program , Recuva , to try to recover the deleted stream but it says its unrecoverable because its overwritten. I am devastated. Is there any possible way to recover the videos? Any companies that may do it? Thank you for your time and answers.
