    A person that knows a bit about computer building and maintenance mostly more than the average person. But always wants to learn more about technology. But I always double check a hundred times before attempting to build/upgrade. I have recently been getting into Linux and dual booting and messing around with old hardware.

    Planned Parts:
    -Corsair’s Carbide 100R (smaller Build)
    -1080p 2nd monitor

    To do list:
    -Proper cable management|semi done
    -Reapply thermal paste in Hp 61g(Summer break)
    -add my geforce gf8400gs ddr 3 1024mb to it
    -Test more Linux
    -Research and fix broken Asus memo pad me301t(long term)

  1. Hey I have few questions about a Kodi server. I was wondering if Kodi has a offline download option like Plex Premium for the mobile apps? I want to be able too easily download my videos from my kodi server too my phone. So I can watch them on the Go. Thanks I am kinda new to setting up a media server.
  2. I ordered this amp for my speakers. I was wondering it says it will take 2.1 Interface 8 ~ 25V DC power supply. So does that mean any DC power supply within that range will work? I have one that outputs 13.8V DC 1A will that be enough? I am really new to reading power supplys.
  3. Just noticed that my ram was defaulted to under 1600mhz on my motherboard. Just changed it small upgrades.. I guess.. 

  4. Hey I bought a intuos 4 ptk-440 for about $6 without a pen. Does anyone know if I can get a pen that would work on it? I am new to drawing tablets so is there a standard for the pen tips or does each model need a certain compatible pen? It's recognized by the computer so it works I just don't have a pen.
  5. Get a SSD in that son and make it "SUPER FAST" also nice temps.

  6. My friend upgraded his HP which is a pre-built with i7-4770 and 16 gb ram with a 960 2gb. I asked him if he upgraded the PSU he told me no and that it was a 450w. Do you guys think I should recommend a reliable 430w or a 500w to be safe? Thanks guys
  7. I remember walking into a best buy about a year ago to just browse. I saw a wireless dongle for mutiple types of controllers wii/xbox/ps3 which i thought was interesting. But for the life of me I cannot remember what it was called or the companies name. Can anyone help me out if you know what it is.
  8. Ahh drivers, We meet again.

  9. When I installed windows 10 on my SSD it would let me choose my windows 10 install. My original install HDD and my install SSD. Now I can't even get into the bios to check the boot order. I removed my HDD after it started showing no signal but it continues to have no signal even with the SSD.
  10. I recently tired to do a fresh install of windows 10 on my pre-built. Everything was going fine. The only thing I had to do was take out my r9 280 to access the bios of H-Joshua-H61-uATX. I was able to install windows 10 on to the ssd. But when I restarted it gave me the option to choose which windows install I wanted to access from my SSD or HDD. I chose the SSD and went into the windows partition manger and tried to delete my old install, but was I only able to delete one partition. Then I restarted and it wasn't showing any signal. I took out the HDD, but it still does the same thing no signal, but the fans are running fine. I took out the battery trying to make it reset the bios still didn't do anything. I even tried putting in a Geforce GF8400GS still nothing. I am really tired going through the crap of having a prebuilt motherboard. Would it just be better, if I got another motherboard like MSI H61M-P31/W8 LGA 1155 for my i5-3450.
  11. Home work and videos and very light gaming. I am only wondering if if the APU has a little more horse power then the pentium or its only there to drive the 1600 x 900 screen.
  12. I was just wondering what one would be better. The Acer or the dell how much more power does the acer have with the AMD A4-6210 APU than the Pentium n3540.Sorry I am really being quick here. The Acer is around $30 more just wondering if it is worth it.
  13. Do you guys know of any good laptops for the price. Just for browsing, home work and video streaming.
  14. Those strange errors might mean your hard drive could be failing. You could pick up a cheap SSD and try that.
