    Internet drops off when copying files to external hard drive

    I have one hard drive connected to the front of my machine with a sata to usb cable and I have an external hard drive in a back port next to the port my wireless N adapter is plugged into on the motherboard. I’ve been backing up files all evening and it seems every time I start a transfer...

    Distorted blue screen on most startups. Win 10

    As the title suggests, I have machine here which 8/10 times will present a distorted blue screen that can't be read, but you can tell it's a stop error with the sad face. I've applied fresh paste to the chipset, GPU and CPU of this all in one Dell build (Inspiron 545) in case it's heat related...

    cannot access C:/ drive from my computer and can't change settings.

    no restore points exist and when I use recovery, I'm prompted with "There was a problem resetting your PC, no changes were made" I get the 0x800704b3 error trying to open anything related to settings and the Microsoft management console. It's a vegetable currently.

    cannot access C:/ drive from my computer and can't change settings.

    Hi guys, in a nutshell, the machine (a dell inspiron 5520) will boot into windows 10, but I cannot access the C drive on it through my computer or even view data on it such as space available, capacity etc. It will give me an access denied message if I try and open it. Task manager won't open...

    HP Laptop is connected with internet and can ping, but browsers aren't working

    Running a HP Pavilion netbook on windows 8.1 and chrome spits out "connection reset" when I request a webpage. I can ping websites using CMD but little else. For the first 5 minutes on startup I was able to get a page to load such as google, but it soon reverts back. I'm connected wirelessly to...

    Connecting two buildings together. Network theory

    First building has two floors, 3 offices per floor, each office has three wired devices and a switch each, these switches tie into a main switch where a server and router are also located. I need this whole network to reach over to building two. I don't need to design another network for this...

    Connecting two buildings together. Network theory

    hey guys, I have a college assignment I'm doing where I need to design a network and connect it to another building across the river where more computers exist. I'm making this diagram in Cisco packet tracer. What sort of connection should I use to link both the buildings. Wired isn't really a...

    FPS stutter at 60fps on YouTube with GTX 970

    Hey guys, I've noticed a lot of stutter on videos that I play at 60 fps on YouTube. It's really annoying. Before I bought the 970 and was using integrated graphics, everything was fine. Now, transitioning is painful at some points. Visible inconsistency. I'm running an AOC I2369vm at 60hz from...

    Custom Build locking up. PSU Issue?

    Yeah, he got a student loan and literally blew it on the build without really taking time to consider what he was buying or any savings he could have made. :( He's not too tech savvy either. I did advise against it. In regards to patterns, he installed a ton of programs on the 12th, when the...

    Custom Build locking up. PSU Issue?

    I'll send over specs if it helps. He went overkill on this build imho. I don't think there any incompatibilities that I can see, but the power supply is ridiculous. I think he went overboard haha https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/colonelmustard93/saved/

    Custom Build locking up. PSU Issue?

    from the logs, nothing I can see. Just the two logs I mentioned. They're always together in pairs.

    Custom Build locking up. PSU Issue?

    No blue screens whatsoever, no logs/dumps either. CPU is stock. This has only been happening two weeks also.

    Custom Build locking up. PSU Issue?

    Hi, I'm troubleshooting a friends computer and 5/6 times a day, it will completely freeze up dead. Nothing can be done. Must be hard reset. Each time this happens, there are two notorious event logs. One critical and one error and these are detailed below. Can anyone confirm if this is a PSU...

    Hard shut down with PSU switch. Stupid, I know, but any problem?

    My PC decided not to respond to the point where nothing could be done, so I flicked the I/O switch on the power supply off and back on as I figured it's a couple of seconds faster than holding the button. I regret that now as I got a power surge warning upon powering back up (american...

    Laptop screen turns into the matrix when pressure is applied to new keyboard

    Now when I apply the keyboard assembly bezel to the laptop with the components seated, it shuts it off and this is with everything unplugged. Putting pressure on the motherboard with a non metallic object (as much as I'd put on the keyboard) is fine. As soon as I clip the keyboard down. boom...

    Laptop screen turns into the matrix when pressure is applied to new keyboard

    I recently changed a laptop keyboard on an Asus X501a. Upon installing it, applying the plastic sheet between the components underneath and closing it back up, pressing on the keyboard (especially around the spacebar area) I get a screen full of lines and inconsistent mess. See the attached...
