  1. hmm oh well looks like ill have to put up with it. ive tried all the things youve listed too
  2. strange thing is - the drive does sometimes spin down completely and it does become quiet - its just that its very unpredictable
  3. In need of some help I have a WD Red drive "Western Digital Red WD101EFAX 10TB 3.5" NAS Hard Drive" its new problem is - it is constantly spinning at max speed and creating an annoying moderately loud hum (not so loud to the point where the drive is obviosuly defective) i have tried changing power options to " turn disk of after 1 min" - does nothing i have formatted the drive and on resource monitor, it is not being used - still loud hum the drive is otherwise functioning perfectly fine, and i dont believe there to be any bad sectors/errors with it whe
  4. I have recently returned from an overseas trip and realized that i have lost the charging dock/case for these wireless earphones i am unable to use them and wondering whether there is another way of charging it as a new case costs ~$150.
  5. Currently i have an old razer keybaord (black widow) and i find that i dont have enough macro keys. is it possible to get ahold of another razer keyboard and remap all the keys and use it purely as a macro keyboard (remapping by razer synapse) if it is possible - there are some used razer keyboards on ebay that i may buy otherwise, ive seen the LTT video that teaches you to use autohotkey or Lua macros or something to make another macro keyboard (but im a bit hesitant in doing that because i need to learn how to do the hole thing)
  6. thanks for the reply, unfortunately, ive done those steps already - my keyboard is able to wake the the computer up from sleep as all the fans start spinning when i press any key on the keyboard, but nothing shows up on the screen. ive also stopped windows powering down the USB devices and i cannot find the enable USB wakeup option in the BIOS.
  7. It was a version of windows that I had the code for in the past this was actually a reinstall of windows
  8. Ive recently installed Windows 7 (64 bit) on my computer and since then, i can sleep the computer but cannot fully wake it back up again, when i press the sleep option on windows, everything turns off including the fans of the computer but when i press any key on the keyboard, the fans start spinning again, but nothing shows up on my screen i end up having to force shutdown and restart the computer. (the computer screen is completely empty, nothing shows up on the screen at all) i5-4690k 16gb RAM gtx 980 boot drive is a samsung 128gb SSD 840 PRO
  9. thanks for that suggestion. i tried both programs and they both dont seem to detect key words like it does in OneNote (they skip over images with the word i am looking for - but the text in those images can be searched in oneNote)
  10. hello, i have a folder of 5,500 tables and graphs as jpg files and i want to be able to search for specific tables/graphs by word. so far using the search function for windows explorer is not working i found that inserting the images into OneNote did allow me to search the images by text - however is not a practical way of proceeding because there are so many files and it takes very long to load is there another way i can say e.g. type in some text using a specific method/program and have all the tables and graphs with those words show up?
  11. "OS services" seems to be using excessive amounts of data i made a post yesterday claiming its data use on my phone data since then, the wifi has used another 10GB+ for "OS services" - its been using 6-7GB daily for this for the past 3 days its totalled 20GB since the beginning of this month i need to find out how to stop this - its draining alot of battery and data thanks in advance
  12. i was out for dinner - had phone data turned on and found out afterwards "OS services" used ~800mb of my 1.5GB monthly data (and the month just started) few days ago "OS services" used over 6GB over wifi i have "download updates automatically" checked - but it does so over wifi, not phone data this has never happened before (had my phone - note 4 for few years running android 6.0.1) what exactly may be causing this & how can i stop this from happening again thanks in advance
  13. i am currently using this (apple calendar on a web browser) - however i was wondering if there was an option where i can use this offline
  14. i use to have a mac and absolutely loved the calendar application. i have since switched to a windows laptop - and struggling to find something similar i have been using the apple calendar on icloud (opened up on a webpage - always requires internet), but i would like to know if there are any other options (so that i can use calendar offline) i do know there is the windows 10 calendar app - but honestly thats no where near as good/functional (1 big reason is that i cant easily set time slots of 15 min intervals - minimal being 30 mins - i do alot of shifting of times and
  15. every hour a popup with " C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\officebackgroundtaskhandler.exe pops up for a split second and closes. (seems to do it when i have my laptop plugged in) only started doing this a few days ago. is there a way to stop this? im using a XPS13 with windows 10. thanks in advance
  16. ok. i fixed it. it was an option within Qttabar and not in windows. thanks
  17. im using Qttabar - never occured to me this could be causing it. i will have to have a look
  18. this hover preview is very annoying especially when hovering over videos - it starts playing the videos with audio am i able to turn this function off? (picture is an example of what is previewed on hovering over images - if file is a video, it will start playing) - thanks in advance (ive also tried googling but all advice seems to be for turning off aero peek function on windows - which i dont think this is)
  19. thanks for the reply. i use it for uni almost everyday (drain about 80% of the battery) and when i get home i plug it in till next morning. so it doesnt stay plugged in all the time, just at nights.
  20. thanks for the reply. the thing is, for the xps 13, theres no easy way to remove the battery so it makes thing difficult
  21. always wondered, for newer laptops (i have e.g. xps 13 9360), when i keep my laptop plugged in at 100%, does the laptop draw power directly from the wall or does it still draw power from the battery and the battery is continuously charging? just wondering if keeping it plugged in at home will destroy the battery over time.
  22. whenever i plug in my ear buds, the computer doesnt register it and plays sound through speakers ive installed the drivers from dell website multiple times restarted computer many times any solutions? EDIT: i also have the wavesaudio installed which messes up all the quality of the sound - it adds reverb to everything and lowers the quality any fix around this? thanks
  23. ok guys, i found a way to fix this problem followed this guide installed the f6flpy-x64.zip file from intel switched back to RAID On and installed windows and it worked
  24. yea,i might have to go to a IT person. thanks alot though
