    I'm pretty lazy but needless to say I do have a heavy interest in technology. I'm thinking of becoming either an engineer or technician but for now I'm attending college to get my associates degree. I'm kind of stumped with my math course, so my life is still in question.

  1. I bought a third party battery from BOWEREIRUI and it doesn't have these insulation attachments to it like that the orginal OEM battery does. Is it important for me to add it to the new battery or can I just ignore? The tinfoil seems to contact with these two points on the cover, but I already tested the third party battery and it works in the laptop. (The upper two pics are the third party battery and the bottom pics are the OEM battery) Laptop in question: HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop 3cbs43av Cx-0000
  2. I removed it with my hand from the HP laptop and didn't wash my hands last night. Washed my hands this evening though, so any side effects of doing so?
  3. I have two laptops, one HP laptop that i bought in 2018-2019 that has a bad battery after a year of usage and a 2010 Macbook that also has a bad battery Both laptop batteries seem to have this white powder on them and i have no idea where it came from? On the HP, the powder was underneath the battery On the macbook, the powder was on the top of the battery Is this safe? And what should i do? As for replacing them im not sure if id be able to, as hp is charging me $152 for the battery alone and no other third parties sell it. The macbook has third party sellers for the battery, but I'd rather fix the newer laptop than use the 2010 one.
  4. I have one desktop build with a TP LINK AC1300 wireless card and an HP Pavilion gaming laptop with the serial number CND8241JY7 which has an intel AC 9560 wireless card and both of them keep switching between my routers 5ghz and 2.4ghz ranges. Today ATT installed a new wifi router thats supposed to deliver 100mpbs download and tests run through my chrome web browser say its achieving close to those speeds, but my deskop and laptop are showing that they're all the way down to two bars of wifi strength but I am still able to open many web based applications without any noticeable slowdown. Still, when i tried to download my nvidia driver it was showing that it was downloading at barely 1mbps to kbps, and i think it would be better to switch all my devices to 2.4ghz due to the amount of walls that sits between my room and the router, so how do i do this? I keep trying to change it in device manager but it just defaults back to what was originally set.
  5. Unfortunately he couldn't because at&t built the mini ethernet plug in their room.
  6. My dad bought a small plug-able netgear extender and he says it does the job for his 2015 iMac on some days and other days it just sucks. The router is located in their room which is closest to the driveway while the 2.4ghz signal needs to travel about 20-30ft through the floor to the kitchen to the netgear extender. The netgear then repeats the signal another 20-30ft through one wall, several feet of open space, then another wall to the iMac. What would be the best way to extend the range as far as wifi solutions go? My dad is stingy and says no ethernet wires directly connected to the iMac Expensive, mid, or cheap suggestions would be best but because my dad likes good deals thats most preferable.
  7. I was playing gta v yesterday and it just crashed while i was playing it, and then killing floor 2 was having major frame drops and i dont remember that happening consistently before. I recently upgraded to an i7 8700 over the i3 8300 so i don't know if thats the issue. Terraria also seems to drop in framerate but not by a lot, and i can only assume its the overclock i added to my GPU or Windows 10 just being stupid. Btw, i know its not the CPU being defective because the i3 also had framerate drops with terraria and gta v crashed as well. Finally, i have a question about intel optane: can i accelerate drives running in a spanned volume or no?

  8. UPDATE: Apparently after running diagnostics, the battery seems to be totally fine and the incident with plugging an iPhone 11 into the USB C Port most likely caused the false error. Might have short circuited the laptop, might have just bugged it out- I honestly really don't know. Good thing i dont have to waste money now
  9. I think i will replace the battery just this once but maybe try and lower the temperatures by using lower settings on the games i play. Just for the record, having it plugged in all the time won't kill the battery?
  10. Yeah it was constantly plugged in all the time, with few days that i had it off the charger along with those other two factors.
  11. I mean it does but i can't have the battery dying every year, if i swap it out this time around i don't want it dying again.
  12. I've opened it before to install components and HP provides you with the service guides they use to service these laptops on their website. So yeah i definitely could But i could also ask at a local spot
  13. So yesterday i decided to bring my laptop downstairs to help my mom with her iPhone 11, but as soon as i plugged it in the battery just died (I was pretty sure i had it charged) and when i booted it up again with the charger i was greeted with, "Your battery needs to be replaced". I decided to use HPs diagnostic tool and it confirmed that the battery is no longer useful, and im kinda pissed because my warranty is gone after having it for only 1 year, 2 months, 21 days. Yes my usage with the laptop was consistent and i always charged it, but i started leaving it plugged in all the time even when off because i need the juice to game. The laptop gets extremely hot while gaming, 88-95 Celsius and burns my finger when i touch the speaker grill so i think that might have killed the battery even faster. (Laptop model: HP Pavilion Gaming 15t-cx0000) Because its the weekend there's nothing i can do since HP is closed, but I don't need to go anywhere anytime soon although i want advice on three things- 1. Should i even bother with HP service? I don't know how much they'll charge to have them replace the battery. 2. I am capable of replacing the battery myself and HP sells the batteries on their website for $116, should i do this? 3. Finally, should i just sell the laptop and buy a different brand?
  14. I actually didnt sit the ram correctly on the board a couple times and caused one of the slots to have black burn marks on the plastic slot. But the computer has been running fine for months it was just terraria that acts up mainly. Although I will test it when I get a chance
