    why is the computer shutting down

    The first 4 SATA-connectors are connected directly to the CPU, the others are connected to the chipset, This might interfere IF you, lets say, connect a M2-drive later on... and YES! it´s always better to use the first 4 (SATA-port 0-3) for boot-drives...

    why is the computer shutting down

    First of all! You should always connect your first sata-drive to sata 0, the next to sata-1 and so on.. (In desktops it´s not always easy to se what drive the cable is connected to, so it will help further on) Second.. The first 4 SATA connectors are supposed to be used for booting drives.. IF...

    Anyone have a favorite notepad apps for Android?

    That might be your opinion, but in fact it´s not all that true.. What could not be "mobile friendly" with it! I know even elderly parents who use it often.. even on their phones.. so that, i believe, is your own opinion and not a fact... What is hard for some might be supersimple to others...

    As I said! The best one for you is the one you are used to use! But to be honest! NO! Bing is not worse than google! google does NOT hade any magic search algorithms... google just stores every search you perform and connects that to you as an internet user.. The stupid thing is that people...

    Best search engine ?

    It´s the one you are used to use!! But personally I prefer BING! I´t intrudes less on your privacy and gives just about the same search results... And it´s easy to turn of the "safe search" that protects children from porn , violence etc..

    Best Passwords??

    Usually there is a balance between how "safe" a password is considered to be and the willingness of using it! To be honest, most people try more secure passwords, and when they have been forced to use the "lost password"-feature a couple of times, they resort to their old habits again... Which...

    I need to blow up a laptop and re install windows.

    Every experienced, well-trained, computer technician knows that the 1st account created (during the setup) will always become a member of the Administrators group.. (And for non-technicians that means this account will be the computer's administrator account!) This is why this first account...

    Still an advantage to installing game files on separate drive from system drive with SSD?

    1: Can you provide us with a reliable source for that statement?? Or is that a personal opinion.. Since most SSDs today are fast, and so is the "channel" it communicates through, I would say there are NO noticeable difference, so you could do either way.. But the question was if there is a...
