  1. Okay, I will need to get a torx screwdriver. I really hope it's just a connectivity issue and not an issue with the card itself because I think the card is soldered in for this laptop.
  2. Sometimes it'll say "can't connect to this network" even with the correct password, but there are also times when no networks show up at all and it says "No Wifi Networks Found." I've tried installing new drivers and doing the network reset, but nothing seems to work.
  3. I'm currently making an RSS reader, and every other RSS feed I've tried has worked, but my site crashes every time a CNN feed is inputted. The parsed items are put into a list and sorted by pubDate. for source in sources: rss = feedparser.parse(source.url) try: items.extend(rss["items"]) except KeyError: continue items = list(reversed(sorted(items, key=lambda item: item["updated_parsed"]))) Is there a problem with my code or is it CNN's feed?
  4. The whole thing is attached to an AIO cpu block(it's an NZXT kraken) and split off from a SATA connector. So if I buy new pins I would just have to cut the off the daisy chain of fan headers from the split, fabricate a new chain, and then rewire them back?
  5. The crimpers would be to reattach the plastic plug after soldering the wires back, right? What would be the best way to take off the plastic plug?
  6. So two wires connecting the fan header plugs on my AIO have broken off(see image). How would I go about repairing something like this?
  7. I am planning to swap my motherboard for an ITX one with the same chipset without fresh installing Windows. What drivers or other programs need to be uninstalled before the swap?
  8. IMO, I think that the most exciting thing about tech is stuff becoming more cheaper and accessible. New features are great of course.
  9. Firstly, the price difference. The 1070 TI usually costs a $100 more. For that you get about 500 more CUDA cores and a slightly faster base clock, about 100 mHz.
  10. Just keep it around in a desk drawer or something. Never know when you might need it for a storage upgrade. Or sell it on eBay at $10 a pop.
  11. For external temps, a thermometer is probably your best bet. I don't think the 5.25 bay ones are very mod-able tho. You can fabricate a custom one using a Raspberry Pi with a temp sensor, and write a program that receives CPU temps from your PC and displays that and the external temp together.
  12. Good camera = good snapchat? Pixel phones have very good cameras.
  13. Is it necessary if the mobo is the same chipset? The version of Windows I currently have installed is the free upgrade version from almost 3 years ago. I don't want to have to clean install because I've heard that the only way to activate this version is to link a Microsoft account to the OS, which is something I don't to do. Are there any other ways of activation?
