  1. Thanks everyone! Man you guys are both helpful and quick! I love video game and usually when I post a question in other forums, I get a response hours or even days later
  2. First of all, this is a question related to phones rather than PCs, so I'm sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong section. I have an iPod Touch 5th generation that's been setting in a drawer for a long time. I'm trying to re-purpose it as a flip clock which I intend to place on my nightstand and the device is going to be connected 24/7 to the power. I was wondering if the iPod Touch's battery will be unusable if I ever want to use it again for listening to music or anything else. I know it's an old device, but those are really expensive and hard to get where I live. It'd be a shame to break it without realizing it. Or maybe I'm exaggerating and nothing will happen. Thanks in advance!
  3. Thanks a lot for your explanation, I'll probably get the extension cable as you suggest. You've helped me tremendously.
  4. Oh, OK. So in that case there's nothing I can do to fix the hum?
  5. Oh, OK. I remember my dad telling me about that a long time ago. I live in Argentina.
  6. Important question, then. What does grounding mean?
  7. Thanks for the quick reply. These are the speakers I have: Genius SP-S110, they are not USB like many other speakers. How should I go about what you explain? Do I connect them to power, but disconnect them from the computer? They sound fine when I'm playing something on the PC, the problem happens when I connect headphones to them. I hope I was able to make more sense. Thanks!
  8. Hi everyone! I bought a new PC last year and I'm having a problem whenever I connect headphones/earphones to the 3.5 mm jack on my speakers. I am using a pair of "Genius" speakers, nothing fancy really, but they were extremely cheap at the time and they sound great for their price. They have a 3.5mm jack, but whenever I connect either a pair of headphones or earphones, I hear a horrible humming noise. If I connect the headphones/earphones directly to the PC, the humming noise is gone, but I can't use them like that all the time because the cord is short. I use my computer a lot for work and I really need to use headphones sometimes, so I was wondering anyone could help me out. I have no idea if this is a hardware issue or a software issue, but again, this is a brand new PC with brand new speakers. Any ideas of things I can try out to solve this? Thanks in advance!
  9. I'm trying to troubleshoot my GFs girlfriend to no avail. At first, the built-in webcam on her Windows 10 laptop was not detected, so I tried downloading as many Windows 10 updates as possible to try to solve this. It got to a point where updates didn't install and I was stuck in an endless loop of Windows updates. Then I tried installing a bunch of drivers using Driver Booster. Long story short, bad idea. The touchpad isn't working well now. Finally, I tried resetting the laptop over night, but most of these problems persist. I'm seriously thinking about re-installing windows from a USB and start from scratch, but I don't have the Windows 10 key to reuse it (the laptop came with a legitimate windows key pre-installed and I don't want to lose that.) So can anyone help me out? Is there anything else I should try before re-installing Windows 10?
  10. Hi everyone! I have a bunch of MKV files on my secondary drive and I'm wondering if there's any way to improve their quality. Or if it is impossible to improve the quality, I'd like to know how to get the best image out of them. I'm currently using MPC-BE because unlike its predecessor, it usually gets new versions. From what I've read, a lot of people like the combination of MPC-HC with MAD-VR, but I don't really know if it works or not. Should the videos I have play fine with MPC-BE, should I use a better software instead (like the immensely popular VLC) or should I combine two pieces of software to make the ultimate media player? Some of the files I have are movies that look extremely grainy and I don't remember if this look is in the Blu-ray or not. I'm really open to suggestions. Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi! I have a Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard combo that I bought brand new. It's the Wireless Combo MK220 to be more precise. For the most part it works great, but every once in a while I keep typing and nothing happens, then all the keys I had pressed appear at the same time. Something similar happens with the mouse. It stutters and feels unresponsive at times and then goes back to normal. Maybe it's a driver thing. I'm using Driver Booster that scans all the drivers and suggests updates, but maybe I should go and install specifically the ones for my device. I'd really appreciate if anyone could help me since this is a really annoying issue when it happens. Thanks in advance!
  12. I tried all three bios keys and it doesn't work. Apparently, that's a common problem, but I need to find a solution that works for me.
  13. I've made some progress. I have access to the screen now after trying all of your suggestions. Problem is, the laptop still has the same error as before (no OS found, which makes sense, since it doesn't have an HDD). Now I need to find a way to launch the BIOS, which seems to be a common problem in this model of laptops and as soon as I have access to that, I need to create a Linux or Windows 10 bootable drive to see if the laptop works as it should. Then I should get an HDD where I can install Windows 10. At least that's in theory, let's see how it goes from here.
  14. I will try that now. I also read about taking the ram outside the latptop and placing a coin or something conductive on the contacts to short something? Does that ring any bells. Thanks! Taking apart the laptop now using the manual.
  15. Oh, OK. I don't think I'll be able to do that with the tools I have at my disposal right now. That's a shame, really. Thanks for the comments, though.
