  1. I use NoxPlayer to run android apps on Windows. Runs pretty well even on my laptops (HP EliteBook 8470p, specs in sig).
  2. Wait, is that an eMachines eTower 433i? I have an eMachines eTower 466i and it looks basically the same on the inside. Mine has a Intel Celeron 466MHz and on your picture I see Intel Celeron 433MHz, that's why I'm guessing yours is a 433i model. This picture is of mine, but it's from some time ago. The GPU in the PCI slot I took out because it caused problems, currently using the integrated GPU. I believe I have almost the same PC judjing by the pictures. Mine can actually still be used even for Internet browsing. It's very slow and most websites aither do not work or load
  3. My main PCs motherboard had the same problem - I put a new cooler that had a 3pin fan of it. Whatever I did I could not make it change rpm. Eventually I just replaced the fan with a 4pin one and had no issues. Though I'm using a motherboard from a pre-built PC and it has quite limited options in BIOS.
  4. My main PC I bought brand new in May 2012 as a pre-built Acer Aspire M1930 with Intel Celeron G530 2.4GHz, 4GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM, AMD Radeon HD7470 4GB and 1TB Seagate HDD. Over the years I've upgraded it (last upgrade was adding an SSD in September 2018, that SSD I bought in November 2016 and used in two laptops before putting in here). All of the original hardware I still have - the motherboard, CPU cooler, two SATA cables and DVD drive are still in my main PC, while the case and RAM are in my secondary PC (which currently does not work, haven't had time to troubleshoot it yet). The HDD I use
  5. I have an HP Pavilion ZD8000 which has a LGA775 Pentium 4 3.2GHz with 89W TDP. Has quite a big heatsink, but it's actually surpisingly quiet. With Windows XP and the newest version of Mozilla Firefox that runs on it, I have no problems with browsing the Internet. I think I've posted pictures of it earlier in this thread, so I'm not posting again (will repost them, if someone wants and can't find the old post). The problem of mine is that it needs a new screen, haven't bothered to find one and sadly the one I have does not work in this laptop (the laptop has a 1440x900 screen, I have a spare 16
  6. @ragnarok0273Thanks. Didn't know there were such boards (floppy to USB). I'll keep the note in mind if/when I buy one (have to find a way to buy one in Bulgaria). I have a SATA DVD RW drive in my PC so no problem with that. And you saying it's just PCIe 2.0 x1 and 500MB/s not being full SATA speed.... well... my PC has only PCIe 2.0 and SATA 2... I guess my hardware is getting old, I mean I bought this PC in May 2012, almost 9 years old now, a few more years and it'll be suitable for this thread.
  7. Does the floppy drive work? How have you connected it? I've wanted to put a floppy drive in my PC for a few years now, but my motherboard does not have a floppy controller. I have the drive, though. It's even black like my case.
  8. I was born in 1999 and have ODDs in every PC and laptop I have except for 1 PC (have no spare ones and don't need one here, so I haven't bought one) and 1 laptop (it's 10.1", no space for ODD). I also have a external USB 3.5" floppy drive on my main PC. I would put an internal one (have a few), but I have no way to connect it. Honestly I rarely use CDs and DVDs anymore, floppy disks even less, but I keep the ODDs and floppy drives I have in case I need them one day.
  9. I've had a similar thing happen. A few years ago my uncle gave us his laptop to fix, after it sat at a PC repair shop for 3 weeks and they did nothing, but wanted payment... Well he got his laptop back and gave it to us to fix, one of the two RAM sticks was dead and removing it fixed the issue. Laptop is working, but WiFi is not. We tried everything we could think of, reinstalled Windows a couple of times, nothing helped. Dissasembled the laptop, cheked all connections, cheked the antenas, no issue. Just as we are about to give up, because we were out of ideas, we noticed it had a WiFi switch
  10. Both my main and secondary PCs are Intel/AMD. All their specifications are in my signature below if someone is interested. Main PC has i7-2600s and RX460 4GB. I bought this PC as a pre-built new (didn't know better) in May 2012. Back then it had Celereon G530 and HD7470 2GB. In 2016 I upgraded to i5-2320 and the RX460 4GB I still use. When I bought it the RX460 4GB was cheaper than GTX1050 2GB for some reason and me being used to ATi/AMD GPUs chose this one. Then in 2017 I upgraded my CPU again to the i7-2600s I still use. Not very new or fast nowadays maybe, but plenty good for me.
  11. Really? I have plugged in a USB 3.0 flash drive on at least 4 different laptops with Windows XP Pro SP3 and it just worked normally like a USB 2.0 drive. Well one of those laptops has only USB 1.1 (it's got a PIII) and it does say the part about the device running faster, but it does it for USB 2.0 drives as well. Maybe different versions of XP, different laptops and different USB 3.0 drives react differently.
  12. i5 2400 from 2010 you say? That CPU came out in 2011. My PC also has Sandy Bridge CPU and it's from 2012.
  13. Well, this made me remember the only car in my family that isn't still ours (every other car that was bough we still keep, oldest one being from 1976). It was from 1986, on the highway it got 40-42mpg and in the city in got like 30-35mpg. Wasn't particularly fast, but it was cheap and reliable, sadly it was too rusted and my grandfather sold it instead of fixing it. Maybe one day I'll get another one of those, they're still common and cheap. And to be on topic my tech realization is that I don't need new hardware. I used to want to upgrade my PC a lot, but now I just don't need any
  14. I too enjoy new and old technology. Almost awlays have music playing, whatever and whereever I'm doing something. I do listen to vinyl records, but quite rarely. The reason? Well when I was a kid (like 1-2 years old) I used to go to my grandfather's record player, take a record out and play it, but I could barely stand and walk at that point in time, so I scrached almost all of the records, some I even broke. I did find the record I wanted to listen to, turned the record player on, set the right speed and played it all by myself, at the age of about 2. Nowadays, at the age of 21, I hav
  15. Completely agree. Currently using Xperia X Compact and I like it - it's running Android 8 and hasn't had a system update since September 2018, but it's size is perfect for me and I'm happy to use it (updates are not important for me). Before that I had two Xperia Z3 Compacts, but both died and I couldn't fix them (bought them second hand). While I do have a Xperia L3 as well, I do not use it on the go, it stays home. I don't like big phones in my pockets, it's uncomfortable. Also using a big smartphone with one hand isn't easy.
