  1. I am looking to sell my laptop, which is an HP Envy X360 model 15z-ds100. It was custom ordered from HP in August of 2020, with upgrades including the Ryzen 7 4700U, 16GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD. I paid just a little over $900 USD for it. I want to sell it because it was pretty much an impulse buy, and after having it for 6 months, I've come to find I hardly ever use it. I don't need to sell it, and I am not desperate for money, but I have never sold anything other than an old iPad so I have no idea what to ask for it. It is in perfect condition, with no scratches or dents anywhere, and comes
  2. I'm currently in the market for a new laptop, and I think I've narrowed my choice down to the HP Envy x360. I've never actually purchased a laptop before; I've always had them as hand-me-downs, so I'm kind of torn as how to spec it. I'll mainly use it for content consumption and light gaming such as Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Thrillville Off The Rails, and various other games from my childhood; these two probably being the most demanding. The base config comes as follows, and is priced at $565 (I get a discount from my union): Ryzen 3 4300U 8 GB DDR4-3200 SDRAM
  3. @mariushm I think I'll just stick with the SSD at this point. Last year I put an SSD in a 2014 Toshiba running a Celeron and 4 GB of RAM and I couldn't believe how fast that made it. Only lag it had was the fact the processor and memory couldn't keep up. So if it did that for that POS, I'm sure it'll do wonders for my computer. As for the battery, I'll just stick with what I have for now. All the replacement are the same capacity or smaller, so I doubt that would do me much good. I guess I can't complain too much about it since I got this thing for free, right? Anyways, thanks for the advice!
  4. @BlueChinchillaEatingDorito I really only use it for web browsing and some light gaming; stuff like SimCity 4 and Chris Saywer's Locomotion. It already handles that stuff pretty well, it just takes it's good old time doing it. From hitting the power button to actually being on the home screen and being able to use it can take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes. So I think I'll just stick to the SSD; I've never been limited by the RAM before and I doubt I ever will. And as I said to BlueScope819, HW Monitor says I have no battery wear, so I guess what I'm getting is all I'm going to get. I'll just s
  5. @BlueScope819 I went and downloaded HW Monitor. I can't believe I've never used it before! According to it I don't have any battery wear, so I guess I'm getting about all I can out of this battery. I'll look into PopOS and Manjaro like you said. Thanks for the advice!
  6. Hey all, I got a hand me down 17.3" HP Notebook, model 17-x037cl. It's from roughly 2016 and has an i3-5005, 8GB RAM. It's an okay web browsing machine, but it's slow as all get out. I've already ordered an SK hynix 500GB SSD, but when I cracked it open I found that it has an open RAM slot. Should I pick up a 16 GB RAM kit? Or is that just wasting money given that it has such a low end, old CPU? Also, does anyone know what kind of battery life I should get out of this thing? I can manage 2 1/2, maybe 3 hours with some web browsing on chrome with a few tabs open. I feel like that's really
  7. @Juanmacaam no, these are all phone lines. Our house was built around 2005 so we have no lines that specifically carry internet signal, so our internet shares a phone line. From the wall there is a phone/DSL splitter, which plugs into the modem. The cable that goes from the splitter to the modem is the square phone jack size, not the more rectangular ethernet size. I've tried plugging in our modem to every jack that I know it wired up, as there are some that are there but have never been connected, but none of them seem to carry any internet except the one it is currently connected to.
  8. Hey Guys, First off, I know nothing about networking, so apologies if I use any terms incorrectly. We have phone jacks all over our house, but it seems we only have one that has internet going to it. We'd like to change the jack that has internet so we can move our modem, but I have no clue how. This picture is how our phone jacks are connected. The grey cable seems to be the line coming from the outside, and the blue ones each go to an individual phone jack. The blue cables are all labeled as to where they go. If I was to remove the tape from the cable that has the internet going
  9. Hey Everyone! So to start, a few days ago I bought the Sennheiser HD 6XX from drop.com and a Schiit Magni 3+ from Amazon. I just got the Magni in the mail, and as far as I know the headphones have yet to ship, so I decided to set up the Magni and test it out with what I have. My current daily drivers are Sennheiser HD 4.30i that just plug into front panel audio on my computer. I have a 3.5mm to 1/4 inch adapter from an old pair of Sony studio headphones that no longer work, so I plugged my HD 4.30i into that and plugged the adapter into the Magni, and I got nothing. I
  10. Hey everyone! I'm planning on purchasing a 2070 Super to replace my 1660 ti; it works perfectly, I'm just looking to upgrade to a high refresh rate 1080p or 1440p monitor and want to make the most out of it. I don't have any friends looking for a GPU upgrade, and I don't have Facebook so I can't use Marketplace. I found a site called SellGPU.com, and they make it seem pretty easy and simple to get money for your stuff. They want to offer me $102 for the card. But I've never heard of them before. Has anyone else used them? Are they any good? Is there somewhere else y'all would recom

  12. @Shimejii Fair point. I've heard of the issues that people have had with iPhone support, but I've never dealt with it myself. I got an iPhone 5c for Christmas in 2013, and then the 6s in 2016. I never had a problem with either of them. Then again I baby my phones; I try to never drop them, though it has happened a few times, and both iPhones had Otterbox Defender cases. Once you cleaned the dirt off of them, they looked brand new even after years of use. Same with my Pixel. None of the 3 Pixel phones I've had so far had even a scratch on them. but none of them worked completely right in one wa
  13. Back in February 2019, I bought a Google Pixel 3 to replace my iPhone 6s. I'm paying $846.94 for it over 24 months. I thought it was an excellent phone, but then I started having issues with it about 3 months ago. At first, the charger had issues with staying in the port if the phone vertical on the mount in my car. It slowly progressed to the charger only being able to inserted halfway into the port, and not being able to provide power at all. I contacted Google Support about it on December 19, and about 30 minutes later I had a replacement phone ordered. I had to provide my credit card info
  14. Sorry for the late replies, but I had to go to work. But I've done some more research thanks to you two. @Bombastinator, Both of these computers do have soldered CPUs. On the Toshiba, its a Celeron N2820, and the Dell is a Celeron N3060. So unfortunately a CPU upgrade is out of the question. @Eigenvektor, I have confirmed that both CPUs are 64 bit and can support up to 8 GB of RAM. I've already been inside both machines. The Toshiba was easy, just a single screw and a panel pops off the bottom to give you access to the RAM and storage. On the Dell, it was exactly how y
  15. A family friend has two laptops that haven't been used very much because of how slow they run. One is a Dell Inspiron 15 from 2017 and the other is a Toshiba Satellite running Windows 8.1 from 2014. Both of them have some kind of Celeron processors, so I know neither of them will be powerhouses, but I'd like to at least make them not painfully slow. I'm already planning on putting a SSD in both, and installing Windows 10 on the Toshiba, but I've found that they both have single 4GB sticks of DDR3 1333 MHz ram. I've found a 2x8GB 1600 MHz kit on Amazon for $42. Would buying that and
