  1. Thanks for the great advice I especially like the second recommendation. When thats said however, they seem to be sold in the US, and warranty is a bitch when it comes to ordering things from overseas
  2. I have a gaming PC and im used to both OS's so that doesent really make a difference, how is the build quality of the Dell?
  3. So, ive had my Macbook Air 13" model 2015 for about 4 years now, and i think its time to upgrade, its been in some rough weather and both the USB ports are busted, so im thinking its time to look for a new one. Im looking for recommendations based on my needs listed below. Portable - I will be using it exclusively for watching Netflix and browsing the web as well as school work, i will carry it almost daily around with me in a PC bag. Durable - Ive been quite satisfied with the Macbooks build quality, most of my former laptops have snapped at the hinges long before this one, and i treat them quite roughly, so a premium build and a metal chassy is a must. Fast and Reliable - I dont want a slow laptop, so a ok/decent processor, 8+GB of ram and fast SSD is a must, the SSD doesent need to have tons of storage, 128GB is quite enough, but i always have like 25 pages and 10+ word documents open at a time, so it being fast and responsive is a must. I appriciate any advice Id like to spend as little as possible, but im aiming for my budget at around 1500USD. However if the laptop is a great deal, im ceirtainly willing to stretch that abit
  4. Im in Norway so my carrier is Telia Norge. Not sure if that tells you anything
  5. Ok thanks ill do that in the morning then Is there anything else you can think of that might work? Like restarting the router? Or the Xbox? Some toturials mentioned setting up a "static IP" for your Xbox
  6. Its a 4G router than was provided by my ISP when i signed up. I think its a Huawei B525. These are my options when selecting "Firewall".
  7. They all appear to be closed Any idea if ive done something incorrectly based on the photo? And whats a double NAT?
  8. Im attempting to achieve Open NAT on my Xbox One, UnPn is enabled and ive attempted to port forward, allthough im not sure ive done it correctly... I still have a Moderate NAT type...

Or is there something im missing? Any help is greatly appriciated
  9. Most things are more expensive in Norway, i said that buying them from overseas might be cheaper but he wanted to be safe and buy them here. I see most people here recommending AMD, is Ryzen that much better when it comes to price for performance?
  10. Thanks for the list Appriciate it alot
  11. Ok, thanks for the advice Appriciate it

  14. So, apperantly there was sowing needle stuck inside the socket where i plugged in my mac charger. It made a large burst/flash and the power went out. Now this is the result. Tried to take a picture of the charger the best i can, but it appears that the silver metal on the outside has been melted away to reveal something gold beneath. Anyone have any idea if it is safe to use? Cause it still works. sorry if this was posted in the wrong subcategory
  15. Trash one at my job, and ive been tasked with finding a solution Thank you very much
  16. I want to connect a desktop to a speaker system, but the speaker system has a 3.5mm Jack whilst the computer only has 2 USB ports. Is it possible to use some sort of cable to bridge the gap so that the speakers can work with this computer? IE plug the speaker jack into a cable that has a jack entrance on one end and a USB connector on the other end for connection to the computer?
  17. At my work, our current computer situation leaves us without cables for a few weeks, and its an old windows 7 desktop computer. It doesent have wifi so i bought a wifi usb dongle to temporarily remedy the situation. But i needed to install the drivers for the dongle on the computer, which requires and internet connection, so i attempted to connect my iphone 7 to the computer using an iphone charger and share my 4g to get the drivers installed, but when i shared the internet via tethering (following instructions found on google) the computer did not find my iphone 7 as an option to connect. I attempted several times. Any ideas? (Not 100% sure if this was posted in the correct sub forum, i apologize in advance)
  18. Wow, thats extremely generous, has to be alot of work to do considering you dont charge anything Also i used the software you told me about and i was able to just click merge and the software did the rest in a matter of minutes Thanks alot for all the help <3
  19. Ok, thanks for all the help Might ask again if i hit any more bumps in the road
  20. Using the software you recommended i am able to "merge" the unallocated partition with the C: Drive, should i do that?
  21. Thanks i will check that out Can i format space that is not allocated to anything yet though? Those 450GB arent allocated to anything.
  22. Those 800 or so MB Is a "restore partition" same as the 450MB in the beginning.
