    Tedstonegenious got a reaction from Shammikit in How good/bad has ur experience been with refurbished electronics?   
    Depends on what you're buying, I have a referb echo dot for about 6 years and she's still going strong. And a while ago I got a used motherboard for my sisters rig. A quick one on ebay for like $40 worked fine, didn't get the shield, though. 
     
    I generally trust referbs, they (usually) do the job just fine, are cheaper, and you are preventing some electoronics from going into a landfill. Be shure to check the return polocy for that usually. A good return policy also implies that they'll make sure it actually works.

    I take this issue as the largest proof of people's refusal to read. I have yet to find a single motherboard/computer manual that does NOT at least three times in bold font, to not plug the hdmi port into the motherboard unless you have a prosessor with a igpu.

    Looks like your father may have the post hoc ergo protcer hoc fallacy, where you asociate one thing with another merly because they happened in a certain order. (I got this vaccum, and then my wifi stopped working. Therefore, the vaccum must of messed with my wifi) also, even if you got a smart vaccum that can connect to the internet, there is no way a vaccum will cause EM interference in the 2.4/5Ghz range. Any interferance caused by things like to motor will be well into the kilohertz range if that. In fact, that is exactley what part 14 of the FCC sticker entails.

    Tedstonegenious got a reaction from pixxel in Is newegg a good place to buy parts?   
    I've built a few computers using newegg. No problems. Packaging always seemed decent, and I've never gotten anything doa (although I'd blame the shipper for that)  And The one bout i had with their return policy was decent. I told them I ordered the wrong CPU, gave it to the UPS store (without breaking the seal on the packaging), and got a refund a few days later.

    I have two VPN's on my computer. One is a custom client I use to access my home network, and the other is a commercial VPN for privacy's sake. (mainly if I want to search something potentially weird. I'm a curious b*****d) It usually takes me a minute to realize that I forgot to turn PIA off when I want to do something at home. And I always feel like an idiot when I realize.

    I think the only requirement for the PCMR initiation is just to have a computer and game off of it. Not everyone can get the best hardware, but using what you have and extending its life will always be respectable.

    Knew someone that was trying to play games on their old PC, and barely anything would run with the stock hardware. Got a part number from him to figure out what he was running so I could find upgrades...
    ...He was using a system designed for cash registers.

    To my good friends, I am God of computing.
    My friend's mom actually paid me 50 bucks to fix their loose cable, thrice.
    Many don't believe me when I told them I built a PC.
    I should never have mentioned the term 'hardware porn' among them.
    Some think I have no life and no future.
    To most adults, I am a spoilt brat.

    Tedstonegenious got a reaction from DarthEoin in Windows Tv   
    Tv's Use the ARM instruction set, the same that your phone uses. Windows is built on x86-64, The CPU on the TV would have no idea how to even read the OS. and that is not the only problem. A smart TV is  highly integrated system, even if you managed to get the CPU on the smart TV to understand the os, there are no drivers to handle stuff dike display output, audio, and networking. These are propitiatory drivers that are designed to work with ONLY the tv's OS and they won't work for windows. And, lastly, there is likely security measures that basically prevent the TV from accepting any os besides whatever was installed by the manufacturer. Fun fact, the last two reasons are also why you can't install windows on an XBOX. 
     
    There is a version  of windows in development that runs on ARM CPUS. but it is underdeveloped and unusable for gaming. And to use it on the tv, you'll have to at very least code a new machine layer from scratch, and reverse engineer all the drivers. It'll just be easier by just using a external PC and plug it into that.

    Even in cheap/budget builds you NEVER skimp on the power supply. that thing can and will burn your hopes and dreams if you overload it or use a cheap, no name model. and that PSU is old, it may of been rated for 300W when it was new, but not now. But overbuilding can be a problem in terms of efficiency, I would get a 450-600 watt model form the likes of corsair or evga.

    Tedstonegenious got a reaction from greenmax in How to limit voltage in the electrical age mod.   
    In my minecraft base, I have a bunch of ELN solar panels producing power. I use DC converters to bump it to 3.77KV and run it on a Very High Voltage cable. I then sep it down to 200 volts to a bunch of life-oriented batteries set in 4 way series and about 20 groups. each group combines in order to have the maximum load distributed (8 cells in each 200V zone, and 2 of those combine into a 800V and 6 combine to 3.2KV. This works until a few days where the breaker on the main 3.2KV line trips. After a bit of tinkering, I realised that the batteries have depleted enough to cause enough of a voltage drop to cause 30KW to flow across the cable. Stepping the voltage down slightly helped, but the batteries will not chage above 80%. How could I design a circuit that would drop the voltage enough to keep the current under control.

    Tedstonegenious reacted to Beerzerker in CPU DEAD?   
    CPU itself is not dead if the system is doing anything at all.
    Check to see with Win 10 if your HDD isn't set for AHCI instead of IDE, has to be set for AHCI in the BIOS to work with Win 10.
