    PWM or DC mode

    PWM means that it turns the power on and off super fast, where it spends a larger percentage of time on for the percentage speed you want. I'm guessing DC mode turns down the voltage or current to decrease the fan speed. DC mode on a PWM fan won't damage it.

    need help on what to do

    I'd just buy a USB sound card like this https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-External-Adapter-Windows-AU-MMSA/dp/B00IRVQ0F8/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=usb+sound+card&qid=1554019725&s=gateway&sr=8-4

    Open the laptop and look for the display ribbon cable. Unplug and replug it.

    Does this only happen when using a second screen?

    Building a pc for little brother

    Why do you need a water cooler? If I were you, I would give him your GPU then get a non-watercooled card that is much faster for the money.

    Is it possible to replace the audio jack on my hedset?

    That will not work if the wires are individually insulated, which is the case is most audio products. You would need to melt the insulation off the wire using a flame, then connect the two pairs of wires in a way so that they don't short. 1,111 posts

    You need to strip both wires and solder them together.

    Should I get an enterprise grade SSD?

    I thought SLC drives are the most reliable. That one is TLC.
  10. I own a flash game site with about 1000 users/week. It used to be closer to 4000, but as I have not been updating anything, it is declining. Now, I would like to sell it. Can i sell it? Should I? How would I do it if I wanted to?

    Anyone know what port this is?

    I'm guessing it could be a SATA based on pin count. There are 12 on the top, 12 on the bottom.

    Microsoft hinting at HoloLens announcement at MWC 2019

    As someone who has used a hololens before, I am looking forward. The old one was already pretty great, although heavy.
