  • Are you able to use a GPU as a computer without a CPU?

    Best answer: No.

    Most people would agree that "using a computer" entails some or all of the following:

    bootstrapping an operating system,
    loading and executing applications,
    interacting with the user,
    controlling peripherals,
    accessing permanent storage.
    While it is true that GPUs are acquiring features previously associated only with host systems (e.g., supporting virtual memory, on-demand paging, and the ability to access host's and peer GPUs' memory), they can basically perform none of the functions listed above autonomously.

    While the heavy lifting associated with any GPU computation (kernel) takes place on the GPU itself, most operations that control a kernel's lifecycle belong in the GPU driver: a piece of code carefully crafted by the GPU manufacturer, but running on the host's CPU.

One week we went to my cousins and I played the whole time there because I had nothing to do! We came back and then my mom took it away! Over there I played 3-4 hrs a day so I can get that but my mom is taking it away till December 22nd so it's been about 2 weeks and whenever I ask for it back she says when I get it I won't do anything else

    Best answer: Are you sure about that Jamin? I had the same problem as the original poster. I know Jamin is very wrong, and this person is trolling the internet. OP I had your problem once in my life time, and this is when I was starting to learn how to use my first computer. I screwed it up, so bad that my hardware malfunctioned, and my computer was freezing. I downloaded a lot of software that was infected, and some of it was not infected, so this was my fault, and I learned from my mistake. The freezing part was caused by me using too much of my computer's resources. My mouse pointer started to slow down, and then it froze on my screen.

    I don't know what's on your computer, and how much resources that you used. If you use too much of your computer's resources, then your computer will malfunction, and maybe it might stop working as well.


    My first computer was a piece of crap. I think it only had 1 core, and 512 mb ram. I assume either your computer is crap like my ancient computer that malfunctioned, or maybe you are using too much of your computer's resources.

    You can try replacing your computer's hard drive, and if this does not solve your problem, then you can try upgrading your RAM. If upgrading your RAM does not solve your problem, then my last suggestion is upgrading your CPU. If you can't upgrade your CPU, then you might need to buy a better computer.

    Computers have: 1 core, 2 core, 3 core, 4 core etc.

    The more cores your computer has, then the faster your computer should be, but you can't overlook RAM. RAM is used, for multitasking, and you need a good amount of RAM.

    1 core should just say the name of the CPU.

    2 cores is also known as dual-core processor.

    4 cores is also known as quad-core processor.


    You can look into what I said further by yourself if what I said interests you.

    Best answer: To repair it properly you need to dismantle the computer casing and repair the crack from underneath.
    You need plastic cement (not glue) and a bit of scrap plastic to put across the crack to strengthen it.

    The case is probably ABS; the stuff sold as plumbing "pipe cement" or electrical conduit cement is perfect, that will bond several different plastics.

    Example cement - note that is says compatible with PVC, ABS, Styrene..
    https://www.amazon.com/Weld-10259-Multi-Purpose-Cement-1-Pack/dp/B004672YTS/

    A "glue" sticks to the surface and can separate again; it's never as strong as the actual plastic.
    Solvent cement as above melts the plastic surface then when the solvents evaporate, the plastic is one piece again.

    Don't over-do it as too much may soften all the way through the case.. Use a thin layer.
    Push some into the crack from the inside, to try and get it all the way through, but do not wipe off any excess that stick through the crack, it will mess up the surface. Wait until it has totally dried hard then break off or cut off any traces sticking through the crack.

    Ideally the reinforcement should be a similar plastic - a fragment cut from plastic pipe, toy, model kit etc.
    As a last resort even a bit of T-shirt fabric over a layer of cement then more on top to soak through and bond it in place.

    Do not try plastic bottle material, that will not melt in with that type of cement.. If you are not sure a plastic is suitable, try a spot of cement on it then give it a stir after a few second; the plastic colour should start mixing in slightly as the surface has dissolved.


    Or, just look on ebay for a secondhand palmrest..

  • I fall asleep when my laptop is rendering?

    Best answer: Based on your description, your sleeping while your computer is rendering a project is not harmful to the computer. A few years ago, I would render a 40 minute video project and that would take 8+ hours. Start the render, before going to sleep, wake in the morning, render is done. Worked great.

  • Amd athlon x2 good for gaming?

    I recently found my moms old windows vista computer with amd athlon x2 on it. I found a way to get windows 10 on it. If I do that would I be able to play any games on it? I think it has either 4 or 8gb of ram.

  • When considering a computer should I get an All-in-one Liquid cooler or an Air Cooler?

    Best answer: I have both. Most of the time I pay a little more for the AIO cooler because they're easier to manage and the fans add exhaust pressure to the top of the case. I can also spotcool the VRM. Primarily I buy 240mm or 280mm AIO coolers because the 120mm coolers are worthless. There isn't a huge leap from going... show more
    Best answer: I have both.

    Most of the time I pay a little more for the AIO cooler because they're easier to manage and the fans add exhaust pressure to the top of the case. I can also spotcool the VRM. Primarily I buy 240mm or 280mm AIO coolers because the 120mm coolers are worthless. There isn't a huge leap from going with a Corsair h115i, EVGA CLC 280mm, or Kraken x62 over the Noctua D15, because the only time those large AIO coolers beat out the large air cooler is when you have the fans at 100%. In the end the difference is an opinion like Coke vs Pepsi or Ford vs. Chevy.

    The drawback of the AIO cooler is the radiator has an aluminum core. That and the pump really isn't that fast. They really aren't any better or worse than a comparable heatsink. If you put a high RPM aftermarket fan with a lot of static pressure on the D15, it would outperform any of these AIO coolers with their stock fans.

    AIO coolers break all the time and the main thing that goes out on them is the pump. When AIO coolers came out in 2010, there were many complaints out leakage but that doesn't happen quite as much because the manufacturing process is more refined. Corsair for instance, will replace the parts in your PC if one of their AIO coolers leaks and destroys the parts. NZXT offers a limited guarantee that won't cover everything. Aside from that, if you're looking for reliability then go with an aircooler.

    Let me put it to you this way. If I was building the system for someone other than myself, I would use an aircooler. Like I said, too much can go wrong with an AIO cooler and when it goes wrong it might happen at the wrong time. AIO coolers are only good if you're trying to manage space in your PC or you're going to overclock. You need a really big AIO cooler for overclocking.

    Personally, I haven't had an AIO cooler break and I've owned quite a few of them. Some of them ran for a really long time and they had no trouble. I had a PC paired with the h8 and a Core i7-2600k. The H80 was good for moderate overclocking and it ran with that Core i7-2600k for almost 5 years before I replaced it in favor of the H115i and a Core i7-6800k.

    If you're getting a Core i7-8700k then I suggest looking at something that's a step up from the H7 and Hyper 212. Those things run hotter than they should. The Scythe Fuma is a really good pick if you can find one. If you're getting a Core i7-8700, keep in mind that it comes with a stock cooler. CPU temperatures can be somewhat controlled by paying attention to see if the CPU is being overvolted by the BIOS. The BIOS has been known to add more voltage than what's needed.

  • Why would both of my case fans stop working after installing a new graphics card?

    I did nothing more than pop out the old card and install the new card (gtx 1050) both of my case fans stopped working after powering up the computer with the new card in. Gpu and cpu fans work fine though.
