    What should my job title be?

  2. vojta.pokorny

    will 3gb/s work with a 6gb/s wire?

    Yes, it will work just fine.
  3. My phone is Samsung Galaxy A8, 2018 model, running Android 8.0. It has a USB-C connector with USB 2.0 My laptop is the HP Spectre x360 late 2017/ early 2018 model - 1 USB-A 3.0 and 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports that are also used for charging. The laptop comes with a 65W USB-C charger (and accepts even a 60W charger without complaining*) OK, so lately I've been travelling via train a lot more than before, and because trains suck where I live, I need to tether my laptop and phone if I want to get something done on the way. I do that by plugging the phone to the USB-A port via a USB-C to USB-A 3.0 cable. I just allow the phone to share the connection over USB, it works perfectly, the laptop charges the phone and I can reply to my emails. Paradise life on the train. But then I got a Samsung T5 SSD which comes with a USB-C to USB-C 3.1 Gen2 (?) cable, so I thought, I'm gonna use that instead. What could go wrong, right? Well apparently it's not so simple, because every time I plug the phone to the PC with the USB-C2C cable, the phone freezes for a second, then shuts down and reboots immediately, and a HP popup window shows up on the laptop, saying that "this charging adapter is not compatible with this computer". I know it's a ridiculous issue, but like, it pisses me off and makes me worried about potential damage to the phone. My smartphone clearly is not a charging adapter and I don't want it to charge stuff it's connected to! Or at least not unless I specifically allow it to do that! Has anybody encountered this issue? Do you have any idea about which settings I should change to make this behaviour go away? Or am I just SOL and destined to use legacy ports for the remainder of my life? *ridiculously, plugging the original charger to a USB-C hub results in the laptop throwing a "HP recommends an original charger" popup, while the 3rd party 60W charger with a 4th party magnetic-tip USB-C cable gets a pass...

    Can This Processor Use Egpu ?

    eGPUs means that a graphics card is plugged into an external box that's connected to the computer, however unless the laptop has a proprietary connector for that, the only real option is Thunderbolt 3 - an Intel technology. This is an AMD CPU. So no, you will not be able to use an external GPU with this CPU.
  5. Hi, a) try to set the monitor to it's base clock b) make sure the cable is plugged in correctly on both ends c) try HDMI or a different DisplayPort cable d) try a different port on the GPU/monitor e) make sure the power cables for the GPU are plugged in all the way f) try to reseat the GPU in the PCIe slot g) try the onboard graphics h) sacrifice a kitten i) submit an RMA request or, if you're in Europe and it has not been full 14 days, just return the GPU/monitor, depending on which one you nail it down to.

    To be honest I know about this only because as part of the migration from the forum to floatplane.com I subscribed to Bitwit and Techdeals for a month. One hasn't posted anything there this year, the other I found out I don't care.

    NAS on a WIN 10 PC

    Look up how to map a network drive, or enable sharing on the relevant folders. Or get Plex. Specifically for access from outside your network.

    I think I don't fully understand what it is you don't fully understand.

    Finally doing 2FA... Which provider?

    Lastpass Authenticator and Lastpass. Yes, I know, terrible practice, am planning to switch it up, so I'll be following this thread for recommendations also, but I like the fingerprint protection of both apps.
  13. Why do you need a new computer? What are you going to be using it for? If it's not essential to your work, you shouldn't indebt yourself to get a PC.

    dog thread

    Ohhh that's what that is! I was wondering how could anyone call them "our babies" and then have them muzzled out in the open where there's obviously no reason for it!
