  1. Well, just to clarify, those who choose Chinese Simplified language can be from Singapore and Malaysia, because we do use Simplified Chinese. Anyway, for China gamers, most of them only cares for MMORPG or any form of online multiplayer games.
  2. I'm actually surprise by this. HP Omen is okay, not the best, but overall not bad, actually.
  3. Actually, 5.25 inch bay are not only for optical disc drive, but IO port expansion such as USB 3.0 and card reader. You can check these example: https://www.amazon.com/Hima-5-25-inch-Computer-Expansion-Microphone/dp/B07SQ17YD7/ref=sr_1_4?crid=1RLRQA4EFM3Y0&dchild=1&keywords=5.25+inch+usb+3.0+front+panel&qid=1614224566&sprefix=usb+3.0+5.25+inch%2Caps%2C374&sr=8-4 https://www.amazon.com/fosa-Internal-Multi-Function-Dashboard-Computer/dp/B07B67VQW1/ref=sr_1_6_sspa?crid=1RLRQA4EFM3Y0&dchild=1&keywords=5.25+inch+usb+3.0+front+panel&qid=161422456
  4. The slim type one are really slow. They can only achieved 16x speed when writing DVD whereas the 5.25 inch one can write at 24x speed, reduce the burning time of a DVD by up to 15 - 30 minutes. Of course you can get a desktop enclosure one for the 5.25 inch optical drive, but it need an external power source to operate as the 5.25 inch drive requires 12V to operate as USB only supply 5V only, which can clutter your work place.
  5. Technically, I like to call them computer consultant, because people seeking advise or input on their computer related questions.
  6. I may be old school, but I find modern case lacking 5.25 inch drive bay(s). This severely limit your front IO expansion, including optical disc drives or card reader expansion.
  7. Also, at Night light settings, you can adjust how much yellowish you want your screen to be.
  8. If you are using Windows 10, you should be able to turn on the night light, which reduce blue light emission considerably. Go to Windows Settings -> System, and you should immediately land on display page. Here, turn on the night light and you are good to go. *Note: This will turn your screen yellowish or sepia.
  9. Me? It's 2.5 litre 4 in-line cylinder diesel engine Nissan Navara with 6 speed manual transmission made at 2013. It's one hell of a mother trucker. This truck serves me well, hauling massive paper from shops to recycling centre.
  10. Also this: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-start-winpc/delete-images-in-windows-10-lock-screen/6f9899ef-099d-43cf-aa4a-7675b09b3161
  11. Have you since change your motherboard or processor after you install Windows? It is possible for Windows to obtained its key back after reinstalling Windows 10 if you didn't change any of your system. Anyway, if you want to delete that old picture from lock screen slide show, I think this article might help: https://appuals.com/fix-deleted-picture-appearing-in-lock-screen-on-windows-10/
  12. Power cycle means to power up the SSD without connecting it to the computer. It's a little risky, but maybe you can try this: Things required: - SSD enclosure, which you already have, - A USB charger (preferably 5V only). It can be USB type a or type-C port. - USB cable (USB type c to type c cable or USB type a to type c cable) Just plug in your SSD enclosure with the SSD in it, then plug the USB cable from the enclosure to your USB charger. Wait for about 10 minutes. Then try to plug in to your computer and see if the computer can read your SSD.
  13. TRIM is a function (like the name suggest) trim the deleted data from the SSD (usually by clearing the memory cell where deleted data is). This process will make your SSD perform optimally, as the SSD doesn't need to remove the data from an occupied cell that holds deleted data before writing a new data into it. You can learn more about it in here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trim_(computing)
  14. Many 2.5 inch 1TB HDD died after about 8 months of usage. I think this is something that Louis Rossman reported, where the read write head scrape off the surface of the platter.
