    Man these DL speeds are impressive
  2. The power led for example, the positive wire goes on the PLED+ header (which is short for power LED positive). HDLED+ = positive hard drive LED header, and so on.

    Monitor overclock?

    Right click on desktop > Display settings > Advanced display settings > Display adapter properties > List all modes > Select your resolution and Hz > Done I believe there's also settings for this in Catalyst Control Center and Intel's settings panel
  4. See the figure labeled 'System Panel Header' on page 21? Those are your headers, I assumed they were pretty self explanatory, but let me know if you need help

    Using a router as a range extender

    By home plug do you mean a powerline adapter? That would also work.

    Taskbar Doesn't Work

    Either install borked or your HDD is failing. Try burning a fresh Windows download to your USB again and reinstalling.

    Taskbar Doesn't Work

    Hit Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open task manager. End the 'explorer.exe' process. Click file, then run. Type 'explorer.exe' without quotes, and click Run. Does it work now?
  9. If you format a HDD as ext2/3/4 rather than NTFS, it won't even be readable to Windows (Linux works fine on NTFS too though). There's bash scripts as mentioned above, and various archive file types (.tar.gz, .deb, .dpkg).

    Using a router as a range extender

    All you need to do is: 1.) Connect an Ethernet cable between the BT/Virgin routers 2.) Set the BT hub to be on the same IP range as your Virgin media one. e.g. if Virgin is then BT should be 3.) Disable DHCP on the BT hub, so the Virgin hub can handle all requests This will essentially make the BT hub a 'wireless switch' (access point), basically forwarding anything that's connected to it, to the virgin router.
  11. Either a virus or corrupted windows files, possibly a failing HDD. Open task manager and kill the 'explorer.exe' process, then click File -> Run, type 'explorer.exe' and click OK. Does your start button work now?

    ram compatibility

    DDR3L is designed for dual voltage compatibility at 1.5V and 1.35V when possible, while DDR3 is at 1.5V (stock). As such, DDR3 will work fine (assuming the board isn't specifically DDR3L only, which I've never heard of).
  13. An LED uses two pins for power, so it's probably for adding LED strips or something, and controlling them (on/off, maybe brightness) with software. This could be entirely wrong, and it could be a badly labelled 'case open'/NIC led header or something.
  14. The best option here is probably just to steal 1 screw from the power supply or a front bay. As much as I love ghetto fixes, this will end badly if the PC is accidentally kicked or something.
