• My laptop's headphone jack isn't working correctly?

    I've had my laptop for a few years now, and lately I've noticed that the headphone jack only registers my headphones half the time. It doesn't matter what set of headphones I use. If I plug them in, they'll usually work at first, but if I move the laptop or the cord at all they'll stop registering in the computer. I'll have to twist or wiggle the plug until it works again. This is really annoying to deal with all the time. Could someone tell me what's wrong and what I could do to fix it?

  • Why does my laptop have such low memory even when I deleted almost every file?

    I have no music, no files, documents or photos, I deleted all of it and put it on a USB flash drive or emailed some of ti to myself. And my laptop is showing it has low memory! Why?

    I have no music, no files, documents or photos, I deleted all of it and put it on a USB flash drive or emailed some of ti to myself. And my laptop is showing it has low memory! Why? This is a Lenovo laptop and maybe an 'ideapad', it costs $350. Any advice is greatly appreciated. I do not do any serious work on my laptop. Just some school work, on powerpoint or Microsoft word and internet browsing. I deleted all my files and it's showing low space, like 143MB of 27.8GB left, Why? I'm confused?

    Handles 1440P gaming very well and can handle 4K gaming.
    Power supply is a Channel Well Technologies GPS series a little below RM Corsair series.
    They are a good high volume producer.
    Motherboard audio is unknown and might have raised the board a bit.
    If you must have wifi, if subtracts from gaming and motherboard wifi is inferior to a good Gigabyte with antenna.
    There is no question that it is an excellent pc, and if already purchased is ot worth changing.
    For $18, probably would have upgraded to 850 Watts - EVGA 850W GQ 80 Plus Gold Power Supply, by FSP is a tad better at not much money and a touch higher in motherboard with GIGABYTE Z390 GAMING SLI and if wifi is needed add it later.
    Neither affects gaming performance.

    You have a very nice PC that performs well.

  • Is my CMOS battery bad or is it something worse?

    Hi, I have an old PC I assembled in 2011. I haven't used it in a over year, because it started rebooting constantly. I have checked my tempatures - all good. Voltages seems to be fine. I cannot see any temperature on my MB's VRM in HWinfo. I suspect it doesn't have that sensor. (P8P67 pro rev.... show more
    Hi, I have an old PC I assembled in 2011. I haven't used it in a over year, because it started rebooting constantly. I have checked my tempatures - all good. Voltages seems to be fine. I cannot see any temperature on my MB's VRM in HWinfo. I suspect it doesn't have that sensor. (P8P67 pro rev. 3.1) Something confusing is my BIOS showing my RAM running at 1333 MHz but they are capable of 1600 MHz I've had a nagging feeling about the MB being at fault. I fear it's a bad VRM or PSU, based on online forums. I did a calculation on my setup; wattage wise. It draws up to about 750W and I have a Corsair HX850 pro. Pretty confident my PSU was not at fault I started reading about types of MB failures. Where I learned about VRM overheating. But I saw someone suggesting someone to check their CMOS. So I read up on that, and all sources I found, listed shutting down constantly as a symptom. But having no issues with dates etc. I kept fearing the VRM is overheating. Then I found a source listing poor external hardware detection, as a sign of a bad CMOS battery. I have had issues with that for a few years, having to change the USB port of my mouse constantly and occasionally having to reboot my computer because my keyboard wasn't detected. Furthermore it never registered the microphone through my audio-amp. Is my MB dying/bad? Is it most likely my PSU? Or is it something as simple as a bad CMOS battery? Thanks beforehand 🙂

  • What is a Satellite Computer?

    Best answer: LOL since when does a MODEL name have anything at all to do with the computer! It is just a name. They also have portege and Tecra models but those also are series names not how the machine is used. The "Satellite" units are the lower end of the Toshiba line.
