  • Do I need a new router?

    Best answer: Do you mean your WiFi is not working? If so, log on to the router via an Ethernet connection and check the wireless settings - network name, pass phrase, wireless channel, protocol and encryption mode.

    Best answer: Do you mean your WiFi is not working? If so, log on to the router via an Ethernet connection and check the wireless settings - network name, pass phrase, wireless channel, protocol and encryption mode. Check that the wireless is still enabled and that the SSID (network name is not hidden). Also check that MAC address filtering has not been turned on. If somebody has changed any of these settings, then either you will have to make corresponding changes in your WiFi devices, or you will have to set them back to the proper settings.

    If the SSID has changed, you can set up a new WiFi profile on your devices. The old network name will no longer show on your devices.

    If the pass phrase has changed, devices will normally report this and ask for the correct pass phrase.

    If the channel has changed, it may now be on a channel that your device does not support. This is probably most common on 2.4 GHz if the router is using channels 12, 13 or 14. Devices in the USA only use channels 1 to 11 and sometimes are unable to see channels 12 to 14.

    If the protocol has been restricted say from 802.11b/g/n to 802.11n only, then devices relying on the other protocol will not work.

    If the encryption mode has changed, the device will normally ask for a pass phrase to be entered for the new mode.

    Obviously the wireless network may be disabled, and it needs to be enabled for wireless connection.

    If the SSID broadcast was enabled and has been disabled, then the device has to be set to connect even when the SSID is not broadcast. There is little point in disabling SSID broadcast as it has almost no effect on network security and can meaan that nearby networks may use the same wireless channel, which will interfere with your network, as they will not know your network is there but hidden.

    If MAC address filtering is on and your device is not permitted through the filter, then the network will not be available to you.

    I have seen one router (a BT Hub 4) that lost 2.4 GHz and required the router to be factory reset using the reset button. Other routers may have a similar issue.

    When asking a question like this one, it helps if you include all the symptoms and the make and model of device you are asking about. There are hundreds of different routers, and simply saying the lights are green is not very helpful.

    Finally, if you can connect to the router itself, but cannot reach the Internet then the wireless adapter in the router is working. Do WiFi connected devices get their proper addresses? Can you log on to the router's configuration settings over WiFi?

    Back to you for some diagnosis.

    I hope this helps.

    Best answer: There are two standard sizes, normal drives for typical desktop machines and "slimline" as used in laptops and some compact size desktop cases.

    You can't really confuse those two, they are obviously very different.

    The bigger problem with an older machine is that there are two different interface connection standards, depending on the machine age.
    Older systems were IDE (ATAPI) which uses a 2" wide "ribbon cable" or newer ones are SATA, with a small, narrow cable.

    You must get the drive type to suit the motherboard connectors in your machine. A Win95 era one is likely IDE.

    Photos - IDE:

    SATA:
    http://cdn2.alphr.com/sites/alphr/files/...

    Early optical drives, before makers switched to IDE, used their own proprietary connections.
    If the existing CD Drive cable goes to a separate plug-in board or the sound card rather than the motherboard, it's an obsolete interface and you would need to use IDE type connected to the motherboard or just leave things as they are.

  • Is it bad for my laptop if I increase the number of cores?

    Best answer: You can only use the number of cores the processor has, and the system does that by default. Thus you can't gain anything by trying to tweak it - there's nothing to tweak. You can, if you know what you're doing, for diagnostic purposes RESTRICT the number of cores used, but that's no good for you.

  • Amd vs geforce?

    Best answer: There have been times when AMD had better offerings or at least comparable offerings. The ATI/AMD Radeon 5000 series was clearly better than the Nvidia Geforce GTX 400 series.

    Best answer: There have been times when AMD had better offerings or at least comparable offerings. The ATI/AMD Radeon 5000 series was clearly better than the Nvidia Geforce GTX 400 series. The Radeon 6000 series was more efficient than the GTX 500 series. The ATI/AMD Radeon 4000 series got Nvidia to massively slash the prices of the GTX 200 series. Almost 10 years ago, The GTX 280 started out at $650 but the more refined GTX 285 was priced at $379 several months after the release of the GTX 200 series. People still argue over the Radeon 7000 series or the GTX 600. Both companies have had products that weren't very good like the HD 3870, GTX 480, Nvidia FX 5200 and 5800, Fury X.

    Unfortunately AMD has not made very good progress with their graphics cards. The last thing they had that was any good was the 7000 series which is the same as the R9 200 series. Most of the R9 200 series cards were rebranded 7000 series cards with higher clock speed. Nvidia did the same thing with the GTX 700 series. The 700 series used the same architecture as the GTX 600 series, although some chips were rebranded and some kinda were.

    The R9 300 series was a refined version of the 7000/R9 200 series but the 300 series card run stupid hot and they consume an obscene amount of power. The RX 400 and 500 series Polaris cards are evolved yesteryear cards but they are far more power efficient, but these cards can't compete with the Nvidia 10-series cards in terms of power efficiency.

    The High end Vega 56 and 64 cards match up with the GTX 1070, 1070ti and GTX 1080 but these cards aren't nearly as efficient as these 10 series cards. The Vega 64 consumes more power than a GTX 1080ti but performs at GTX 1080 levels.

    The only thing AMD has for the foreseeable future is Navi and a refined version of Vega. However with Navi being more geared to work in the upcoming PS5 generation consoles, not much can be expected from it unless it performs well as a midrange card. And this is where the problem with AMD cards lies. AMD's Graphics architecture is and has been designed to work with consoles since the 7000 series was in development. Sure, the 7000 series did well but once AMD had to start designing their Graphics architecture around power efficient consoles, then their ability to compete with Nvidia went down the toilet.


    Vega is skipping a 12nm refinement and jumping straight to being made on the 7nm process but it seems it will be geared towards machine learning. The 7nm Vega gaming cards might become heavy hitters if they can perform well and get released in a timely manner. As far as I know, Vega architecture will probably not see the light of day in a console.

    All this is really known about Nvidia's next generation graphics card is it will be made on the 12nm process. There are too many "dumb" rumors about Nvidia's next generation cards such as the architecture being called Turning instead of Volta, or the cards using an unmarketable name like GTX 1180. Volta is the next stop on Nvidia's architecture roadmap after Pascal. One thing that is for sure, when a card is getting close to being released, more accurate specs and names appear through leaks. Nothing, other than crazy rumors have appeared yet for the next generation of Nvidia cards.





    Nvidia GeForce HOLDS the Performance Crown and it looks like they will continue to do so for at least the next year. Quite honestly, it seems to me that Nvidia will continue to hold the performance crown for the next 3 years.

    I do have a Dell Precision m4300 laptop that apparently according to what I read online, said it was released back in June of 2007, back when Windows Vista was the latest and greatest operating system. I did manage to put Windows 10 on it and it seems to run fine with the 2.5 ghz Core 2 Duo with 4 gb ddr2 ram and a 160 gb ssd. The only issue that I had was the WiFi driver that Windows 10 originally used didn t work properly, however, I was able to download the wifi driver from the Dell website for this model laptop for Windows Vista 64 bit and installed it in Windows 10 and now it seems to work fine with the driver for Vista even though its running Windows 10. So would you say that Core 2 Duo PCs are still good today? I think they would certainly be better than the Pentium 4s or Celerons, but not as good as any of the "i" series PCs from this decade.

    I have an ATI Radeon HD 4350 in my other PC which I use for programming. It's kind of an old PC, but it's good for this purpose. But recently I've gotten a bit better GPU as a gift (Radeon HD 6450) and seeing that I can't sell the old one to anyone (I tried, I failed), I want to see if I can somehow kill it or damage it without damaging my other components. I tried to make the graphics card overheat using FurMark, but once it gets up to 110°C (230°F) the PC just shuts down immediately and it won't turn on until the card cools down a bit. I've also thought about shorting it, but I'm afraid it could damage the other components. So, what can I do?
