    Best Place To Live if money didnt matter

    That's where the "+" comes in.
  2. Unfortunately, legislation isn't the answer, government is not an efficient method to fix technical issues.

    Google blocks Huawei

    Huawei's 5G solution isn't innovative just cheap, so someone who isn't Huawei will make this sale. How exactly will this come back to 'haunt' Trump? I understand your dislike of the US, our politicians abuse their power as all did before the current sitting president.

    USB ports borked?

    I'd say the the thumb drive is borked. It is drawing too much power and the the MB USB chip is protecting itself and the system by temporarily taking itself offline when it senses the overload.

    Help me get a PC (Not Gofundme or Indie gogo)

    Research, research and research. When I was going to school is when I became dependent on the internet/computer.

    Why is my laptop stuck at .79 GHZ...

    Maybe the answer lies here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-other_settings/windows-10-only-use-half-of-max-cpu-speed/d97b219f-10ee-4a42-a0fc-d517c1b60be8?auth=1 Another possibility is that the cooling system is not operating properly(at all?) does it seem excessively hot?

    Why is my laptop stuck at .79 GHZ...

    Maybe there's a bios update to fully utilize the CPU? I have a 7700hq and it's doing 2.6 GHz of its 3.6 just sitting here idle(running cpuz) Definitely seems to be a configuration or hardware anomaly.

    There should be a performance option where Longevity for my poor laptop is.

    LOL... Wow. Uh, sorry for your pain.

    Get CPUZ and run the benchmark. I'm pretty sure it will ramp up from there.

    Laptop emulation from a newbie

    It'll throttle if the cpu/gpu gets above the mfg's limits. I have basically the same laptop, and the fans spin up if I turn it on and think about using it; been like that for a year and a half now. I put some new paste on the gets hot parts about 2 months ago. Knocking on wood every day. Good luck!

    PLL CHIP

    I did a lot of looking (found your post on Tom's, nice ppl there eh?) I'm betting it is on the CPU die for temperature stability reasons. I'm still looking though. In the old days (486/early pentium) cpuz used to report this info. PS. That case fan... ICK! LOL

    How to remove a Dsub housing

    If there's no identifiable seam for you to pry apart, you'll have to take a knife and start hacking at the plastic/potting material until you get to the wires. Been there done that. Good Luck!

    How to remove a Dsub housing

    Best bet would be to buy a new connector and find or make a diagram of the current pinout. Most OEM d-sub 9 pins are potted, which makes them messy to deal with.

    What Component is This?

    Looks like the 100 ohm resistor next to the transistor feeding the fuse took a shot.
