About AbydosOne

Profile Information

  • Location
    Chicago, USA
  • Biography
    Not really a gamer (but I enjoy building higher-end computers for fun of it)

    Electrical Engineer (I think in binary and hex more often than I'd like to admit)

    Semi-abashed railroad enthusiast (they employ me, so I keep a low profile)

    Datahoarder (I have spent a single-digit-percent of my annual income on hard drives in the past)

    Java programmer (I don't claim it's the best, but it can do everything I've needed it to do so far)

    Arduino dabbler (actually, more of a fan of the Particle Photon at the moment)

    Chicago transplant (Michigan is home, but Chicago has taken me in)

  1. I've had five different tablets/smart pens (Dell, Microsoft, Asus, XPPen, and Lenovo) and none work with each other. Unfortunately, it won't be that simple.
  2. That's... not a printed circuit board. Here, here's some antennas. Install as detailed in the manual (7.2MB document) on page 7.
  3. Without seeing the PCB for myself, it's either going to be integrated into the board (no upgrade) or it will run to a RF jack (potentially upgradable). Pictures please?
  4. Oh! "In my router, model B535, is a printed circuit board. Where is the antenna?" Is that what you're asking?
  5. If it's a bunch of small files (as tends to be the norm), there's more overhead/latency in the process than if it were large files. For each file, Windows (NTFS, technically) needs to create a record containing location, size, name, etc., then copy the actual data into the given HDD space (usually far away from where the metadata is stored). If you're actually cloning (streaming the information, borrowing the file layout from the original drive), you might just be running into the HDD performance cap.
  6. Quick check: the cable testers have (good) batteries in them?
  7. GT 610s don't have an NVENC encoder.
  8. Offhand, I don't think so: the other x8 gets used for the iGPU, so there pretty much can't ever be one (without increasing the PCIe lane count on the IO die).
  9. oh gawd I'm having flashbacks to the first thing I posted on this site... (where the official Seagate profile said that would work and I couldn't remain a silent observer any longer). No, no that doesn't work. You'll need something to host the share, like a Raspberry Pi (or the like) or another computer.
  10. Pretty sure that's a zero-sized window (see the shadows around it?). Try closing everything and/or restarting.
  11. 3200G only supports up to x8, so the best you could (probably) get is x4/x4.
  12. Assuming you're not running XP, it probably didn't install because the drivers aren't compatible. Windows Hello biometrics weren't even an idea in XP SP2 times.
  13. Why not just replace the MXM card? Any ad hoc external GPU setup is going to ruin the portability part of the laptop.
