  1. Check your power options, especially the advanced options where you can limit the min/max CPU %.
  2. PIA Chrome Extension

    I haven't used the chrome extension, so don't know about that. But. if you're using the VPN app, then ALL your web traffic should be routing through the VPN, so no need to use both the vpn app and extension together.
  3. Might be a good idea to go to a disability forum site and ask there, you're much more likely to find people that know about it IMO... I mean I hope someone here will know, but chances are slim.
  4. How to set SSD as main boot drive from HDD?!

    Clone the drive. get a linux boot USB, boot into it, erase the HDD. Done.
  5. Just from a quick google, don't have any first hand knowledge of them https://usabilitygeek.com/10-free-screen-reader-blind-visually-impaired-users/
  6. Ryzen 7 2700x oc

    Yes should do, there are loads of reviews out there, but one I definitely remember the reviewer saying 4.1/4.2 was possible with the wraith cooler, but you're looking at pretty high temps. I would buy (and have), a cheap-ish 240mm AIO like the cooler master master liquid 240 lite, that are around £43 in the UK... think they are around $60 in the US? [edit] forgot to mention, but it might actually be more worth getting a 1st gen, as most likely could reach 4Ghz on them, and the prices of the first gens have dropped considerably.
  7. Fixed clock speeds on Gigabyte boards

    Sometimes can be a buggy BIOS too, if you change stuff and yet doesn't appear to have made the changes,,, I haven't seen it a lot, but I have seen it. If that is the case, the thing that worked in my case was to flash the bios again, no amount of resetting CMOS worked. The good news is this was on my MSI z97 board that I am still using to this day in my mining board 4 years later, and with zero problems after the re-flash. IIRC it was the shocking MSI software that I believe somehow downloaded the bios for the wrong region, that caused the problems in the first place. I had never used one before that time AFAICR, and never have since either.
  8. Parent's new mid range phone - need some advice

    I'd pay the extra and get the note 5 pro personally.
  9. System Build Issues

  10. System Build Issues

    AM4Ryzen 32200G(YD2200C5M4MFB)65WRaven Ridge3.5GHz2MBB0P4.40 Needs 4.40 bios.
  11. System Build Issues

    IIRC the BIOS needs updating to support that CPU.
  12. Types of storage?

    Boot drive is just slang for the drive that the OS is installed onto BTW, not a specific device. Therefore the "boot drive" can also be the storage drive etc.
  13. So google is truly "Hooli" ?
  14. Best router as of right now 2018?

    Would be better off IMO to put that money towards a pfsense build, and just have a modem, may be possible if you have one to put your modem/router into modem only mode.
  15. Spotify overhaul for free users.

    Good news, I literally just took my Amazon gear back off spotify as it wouldn't do what I wanted anymore as a free user now, after cancelling my premium that is. But saying that, the main reason I cancelled was because it would give me odd problems every day or 2 where I had to disconnect and reconnect my account on the Amazon equipment... could be down to Amazon I guess, but still the problem was my family and I couldn't use the spotify account sometimes. I have since bought a google mini, and signed up for google music... so far it's been smooth sailing for my phones, tablets etc, just can't use it on the Amazon equipment. I wish google and Amazon would pull their heads out of their arses and start letting their users use whichever accounts they want on each others equipment. This has to be the case for others and not just me right?
