  1. Long story short I had 4 sticks of RAM in my build and one died. My question is would it be better to run 2 of the sticks, total of 16GB, in duel channel mode or run all 3 working sticks, 24GB total, in single channel? Alternatively am I incorrect in assuming that by having a third stick in slot B1 or B2 it would cause the sticks in slot A1 and A2 to run in single channel?
  2. I shall add this being legal to the ever growing list of reasons I wish to leave the USA. I think I'll have to go with one of those unfortunately, Google Voice no longer works with FreePBX because of a change Google made. That was my plan, the combo ones suck.
  3. Any personal experience with a good modem that allows this? if not I'll just look at a bunch and check the reviews. Also assuming I can't find a modem with this built in how else could I go about setting up a VoIP connection?
  4. I would rather use something I already have kicking around if possible.
  5. Currently I live with my grandparents and we can only get Comcast in our area. Lately the phones have been failing but the internet and cable has continued to function fine during these phone outages. I have decided for several reasons that I want to replace the modem router combo rented from Comcast with my own, preferably one without extra "smart" features, and setup a old computer I have kicking around so I can use something like Google Voice for the landlines. Problem is I have 0 idea where to start, I could use some advice here. Our internet plan caps out at something like 120mbps down an
  6. If you have the space while moving and would still need the PC at the new place I'd take it with you, otherwise sell the parts individually.
  7. Update: I let the computer sit for a few hours while doing other things and booted it into safe mode which got it to boot successfully. I have no idea what's wrong but one of the drives is dying as is so i plan to pull off everything important and take it offline to repair/upgrade/maintenance.
  8. I'm uncertain how to help you in this exact scenario but a good troubleshooting step here would be to put that drive into another computer and see if it functions as normal. If not I'd assume you have a bad drive, if it does function normally however try a different physical connection on the server, EG a different PATA/SATA/SAS port on the board or a different bay if you server has those hot swap rack things on the front I don't know the name of.
  9. IMO at that budget I'd say browse your local used marketplaces for some good deals. If you want to go new however if you give what you want to use it for I bet someone here could put together a decent part list.
  10. I have an old PC running TrueNAS core and while trying to transfer some files off it my mail computer stopped being able to connect. When I went to check on the NAS it had an error along the lines of "Uncorrectable I/O failure on pool 'boot-pool'" After restarting the system it will POST and boot into the "welcome to TrueNAS" screen but upon selecting the boot ,option I just get a black screen. I'm pretty sure this means the boot drive is corrupted somehow and the easiest solution to my issue is just reinstall TrueNAS but I want to double check here before I do anything in case that's going t
  11. I have a small USB Bluetooth adapter kicking around and I want to use it for something, only issue is I have no idea who made it so I can't get the right drivers and windows thinks its a HID device. Is there someway I could tell who made this dongle and what model it is? It has no branding or model information whatsoever on it.
  12. It would appear that this time the process finished with no errors and I assume that means it has worked. Thank you for your help.
  13. The instructions do say it's for Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 and I am running 21.04 on this system. Can I ask how you knew it was made for an older kernel? Was it just literally reading the online documentation and I was wrong to assume that because it worked on 20.04 work on 21.04 or was it something about the specific error?
  14. I have done this and now the process will run and do something but it still exits with errors.
