    No. Pavilions are very low-end machines and that thing has an SSHD not even a full SSD so it will be slow as shit.


    OP, avoid this one.

    I personally used something similar and worked just fine as he wanted. I ran Windows and Linux and performed very well. And very nice keyboard for school.


    I truly prefer OP getting a MacBook.

    Anyone have any suggestions for a well performing VPN service for Australia based household?  99% of browsing is legit, maybe the odd torrent when useless streaming services in Australia don't bring content for months\years after its released :)


    Would need to support site to site PN from my ubiquiti router and have mobile (ios) options also for on the go.


    Main concern with VPN service providers is privacy and breaches.  Can we still trust some of those who have failed in these areas still?


    Many thanks.

    ProtonVPN I would say. I use it all the time!

    I feel very dumb. I bought a used custom build but the guy couldn’t wipe the hard drive and sold it to me as is. 

    I’m trying to use the built in windows tool to wipe the drive but I’m having continuing issues. Every time I go through the windows menus to wipe everything from the drives it comes out with an error similar to “There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made”. I tried to follow some articles online but I’m extremely bad with hardware and tech knowledge in this realm, hence why I bought it used. Anyone have advice? I’ve already tried going into CMD as admin and doing the sfc scans with no luck.


    Basically I want to wipe the drive clean but keep the windows, any help/advice would be extremely appreciated. 

    Why not reinstall windows? That is best way to do so!

    I have an old i5 5th gen machine with 8 Gb of ram, I am thinking to make it as a web hosting server. I am really new to all this any help?

    Make sure you are not on a residential connection, many ISP's block hosting websites from residential connections.

    Even if i could do that, that would mean that i would had to have my PC on all the time.

    Ah! Maybe usb to ethernet dongle, and connect to a switch. Since your phone is technically the router. Both iPhone and Android allow USB hotspot, but not sure with router.

    I wanna use my phone as a hotspot, connect it to the router via 5Ghz WIFI and then the router must be able to provide internet via ethernet (at least 2 cables).

    In other words i want to convert 5Ghz wireless internet to wired.

    I know that DD-WRT firmware has this feature, unfortunately they don't support any of the routers i already have.

    Can you suggest some routers that have this feature?

    Why not connect your computer to your hotspot, then get a switch and let the computer do it.


    I used to do something like that, I think it was called bridge? 

  7. I have an Old Nintendo Wii, rarely used (probably less than 25 hours) and is just sitting around. I was wondering what things is the community are doing with an old Wii or how I can make it more useful.


    Btw, I am not interested to any games or emulation of games. 


    I was thinking in sense of media or something.


    Maybe making it do something like a chromecast or something?

    I have a friend who has a redmi note 7 pro which has a problem with the google apps saying the device is not certified. We tried rooting the phone and solving the problem using magisk but to no luck. 

    Will switching to Different OS like Lineage Os can help solve the problem?

    Nope. This problem actually exists on Lineage as well. I run a Reserrection Remix (based on Lineage) and I am unable to solve the problem via Magisk also. 


    But my phone was certified on Stock ROM

    Has any one got experience of either the ARCTIC BioniX F140 or ARCTIC BioniX F120 as case fans?


    What are they generally like? Noise wise?



    Look them up on Amazon or other sites and check out the reviews. 


    And on YouTube I found some reviews about them! I literally copied and pasted the name on YouTube!

    Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Primarily gaming (COD, Valorant, Witcher 3, GTA V, and any good upcoming games like Cyberpunk)

    Other details: I have a 1440p 144mhz screen so would be nice to get most modern games to run at 1440p 144fps but don't think that's going to be possible.

    Is Windows 10 Pro required? I would get Home.

    got it. Got to install Chrome now (i am a privacy person so haven't invested time to do that).

    Its fine. Probably boot into Live CD mode then install on there to keep data private.
