    is 60 decibels a foot away from your pc too loud

    A simple google search about 60db would have helped. 



    Sound is measured in decibels (dB). A whisper is about 30 dB, normal conversation is about 60 dB, and a motorcycle engine running is about 95 dB. Noise above 70 dB over a prolonged period of time may start to damage your hearing. Loud noise above 120 dB can cause immediate harm to your ears.

    Maybe if it lets you change settings for rst.


    I wouldn't be suprised if you can't use the drive outsite of windows, there have been many features like that before.

    I just rememberd. So first I put PopOS, then I decided to put Zorin OS on it. Before I installed Zorin OS, I didn't remember that I needed RST in Zorin, but I remember seeing an option in the bios to turn it on/off, so maybe I install Windows, I might get that option back.

    ooof. I hope there is an update on this in the future.

    Either im missing it and someone else knows, or that bios is designed to only work with optane caching in windows.

    k. Do you think booting into windows, and enabling/disabling inside of Windows 10 could help?

    seems like raid mode is on in the bios, can you turn it to ahci or off? The raid mode hides the drives from the os.

    In Bios I see:

    - Main

    - Security

    - System Configuration 

      - Language


      - Boot Options

        - USB Boot

        - Network Boot

        - Network Boot Protocol

        - Legacy Support

        - Secure Boot

      - UEFI Device Config

        - Intel Rapid Storage Technology

          - SATA 0.0 HGST .... 931.5GB

          - PCIe 1.0, INtel .... 13.4 GB


    Then clicking on the drives just reveal info, and no way to change anything.

    what do you see when you run lsblk in linux? or lspci?


    You normally need to install a os on i before its bootable

    then you can just format and use it. That 13.2 gb drive is the optane module. The optane m.2 drives are just standard m.2 drives and will work like any other.

    The problem is that I cannot see it in the OS. (Elementary OS)


    The bios ain't giving me an option either.

    Are you trying to setup the caching? Or do you want them seprate as a seprate drive?

    You can just format it and use it as a drive, or I think you need to install the optane app in windows 10 to use it as a cache drive.

    I am trying to use another OS besides Windows, and I want to use it as a separate drive. 

  9. I am trying to make Optane Memory act as an SSD, but in the bios, I see the "Intel Rapid Technology" option, but inside of it, it shows my HDD and the 13.2 GB drive, but when I click on them, it doesn't give me any other option.


    I have a HP laptop, cs0006st. I have read many HP forum posts, and can't seem to find a solution. 


    Hopefully someone here may have some knowledge on this.

    Can I download the free version of windows 10 from a MacBook onto a 8-Gig flash drive and use it to boot up my new computer?

    Yes you can. You can use a software like Baleena Etcher to do so. Just download the ISO from the web, then put your USB, then select the flash drive in Baleena Etcher and go!

    Hello everyone,

    I have recently gotten interested into coding and that of programming. So through this I wish to get a laptop with Kali Linux, and I know that an I5 and 8 GB of ram is most likely necessary. I was just wondering if anyone knew a laptop that is under 300 dollars and has either of these specs or is able to be upgraded to these specs for not much money. 

    Thank you for any help!



    Kinda hard to find a laptop with Kali Linux, but any normal Windows Laptop can get Kali Linux

    Just replace the 1tb HDD with an SSD.  Best of all worlds there.

    I would, but that won't be cost effective as I use the laptop rarely. Long boot times didn't affect me much before, but after I started using Mac's with SSD's and all, it kinda broke my habit of waiting for laptops to boot. 

  13. In my laptop I have a 16gb Intel Optane. Now I am using Linux and with a 1 TB hard drive, Linux boots very slowly (Ubuntu). Is there a way I can use the Intel Optane Memory module as a normal SSD or as a high speed storage, so I can boot Ubuntu from the Optane instead of Hard Drive.

    Using both Chrome and Firefox, I get ER_CONNECTION_CLOSED and PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR respectively, with the occasional PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR on Firefox. Games will also not connect to their servers. I have changed the DNS on both the gateway and my PC to Google's with no effect. Everything works fine when my VPN is on and on the neighbors' network. Issue is over wifi and ethernet. I have no antivirus or firewall besides Windows Defender. I also changed the coax cable if that means anything. Every other device on the network runs better than ever. Appreciate any help resolving this issue.


    On the PC, check if the gateway address is fine or something. Can you ping your router/gateway?

    So LTT had several videos "recently" of how great linux has become over the years as well as how great it is compared to Windows or macOS or whatever. I have also seen many articles online of the benefits of going Linux than the tranditional Windows  OS.

    So it brings me to my question. Although Linux isn't mainstream and that popular (yet?).

    Who is Linux not for??

    I would say linux is not for the closed mind people. As you have to be very open to changes if you are deciding to switch to linux, since in Linux you cannot be like: "Why doesn't linux to this thing that Windows has, this is stupid". Instead you have to be willing to change if you switch to Linux. Also Linux is not for those who rely on Windows applications that don't run on Linux, maybe your job requires the app, then Linux is great for like a second device, but for your first it might not be so great.

    Hi everyone, I recently moved into a new home and wanted to have a capable setup. I decided to splurge and get a good router and modem as I have xfinity (the only real isp in my area). For a modem we got the arris surfboard SB8200, and router we got the netgear AX1800. We have gigabit internet through our isp and while I recognize that we won’t always get gigabit down I did expect more than 300 mbps while right next to the router. When I first got everything connected I only got 90-120 mbps but after changing some setting in the router admin portal I was able to get 350 mbps. This worked for a couple of days then I tried to tinker with everything some more to see if I could get it back but now I’m back to getting 100 mbps even after putting everything back how it was before. So my question is what kind of settings should I be focusing on to change and tweak to get better speeds and what should I not change?

    I am not sure 100% of the exact model number netgear, but I suggest that you turn off `QoS`. Also, check if you are on 5Gz. Also one tip as I have xfinity, you should tight the wires of the coax everywhere there is a connection to ensure all connection goes through.

    Roger, thanks!


    KK, so will the one you suggested get 10 and onward?

    Can't guarantee that for sure, but the current Lineage OS official builds currently being released are Android 10, so if ever the device gets listed, then you can definitely update to Android 10. 


    To put in context, a Samsung Galaxy s3 released in 2012 currently running Lineage OS Android 7. So that phone should also survive pretty long. 


    Is a phone really important? How about Bluestacks emulator on your MacBook or Mac?

    And that would be or close to stock android?


    don’t care I need one app :)


    So how bad is it? 
    it only has to run one app

    You won't need Lineage OS at first. The phone I suggested comes with Android 9.0 out of the box. 


    Lineage is only needed if you decide to update the OS on the phone after it loses support for updates or it starts to get slow. 


    You are probably good for 3-4 years for your use cases.
