  1. Hey, We have a spare Synology at work that I want to use for temporary storage just to move some data around. The NAS is filled with 12 4TB WD4000FYYZ (black) 7200RPM drives but 4 of them have failed. I'm considering buying 4 replacement WD 4TB blue drives that spin at 5400 RPM. I'll only be using the NAS for a few weeks so speed and reliability isn't my main concern. Will it work if I put 4 5400RPM drives in the Synology? I'd assume the performance won't be optimal but that's not what I'm looking for. Thanks!
  2. @Kilrahthank you so much for providing those pictures! Now I know what to look for. The previous owner found the laptop in his house that he had bought 20 years ago. The acer carrying bag, battery charger and the external floppy disk was included in the sale too and I believe the original receipt was still in there too. The laptop still works perfectly fine but I'm just missing that stupid little board. I did find a 130 page manual for the 310 but it didn't mention the board. Hopefully one will pop up soon on ebay. Definitely looking to get this restored.
  3. Last week I acquired a rare Acer Travelmate 312D that came without the disk. I was hoping to just install a regular laptop IDE drive in it but I soon discovered that it uses a strange connector that I cannot seem to figure out. This is the laptop: It's apparently so rare that I have not been able to find any detailed information about this laptop. The disk had been removed by the previous owner and I think that the little cable that converted it to IDE got removed too. This is what is left: Still unsure which connector is used. I've been desperate
  4. it is single sided and as far as I know it came out of an Toshiba laptop. Don't know which one. Thanks for the tip I guess I'll just have to keep looking.
  5. Yes, I did not mistake the title. I actually mean MEGABYTES. I'm restoring a Toshiba 4000 CDS (specs here ) and I'm trying to upgrade the ram from 32 to 64MB. It has 32MB soldered on to the motherboard and it's upgradeable to 160MB of 66HZ memory. However I'm having issues upgrading it. I bought two 32MB sodims to try but neither of them seem to work. They look compatible to me. Specs of the ram I'm trying to get to work: tested_speed 66MHz PC Type PC66 CAS Latency CL2
  6. Anyone interested in a key for Xcom2 with some extra DLC packages? Won a key but don't want it. 

  7. I don't have an SSD laying around but when I do I might switch to that. Honestly this hard drive is not bad at all. Boot time to the desktop is still well under a minute. The 9600GT sure is a good card. I picked it up for a price of a coffee few weeks ago and it surprised me by its performance compared to the 8800GTX. Tbh I've used that card more than the 8800 GTX. I'm looking in to flashing a 9600 GT XXX bios on to it. That card basically has the same hardware but is clocked higher.
  8. I've spent the past few months gathering some components for my 'retro' gaming PC that I've put together for fun. I'm aiming it with parts from 2006 to the late 2000's. CPU: Core 2 Quad Q9500 2.8GHz base (OCed to around 3.6Ghz fine for me). Motherboard: Asus P5E (not the Deluxe) Ram: 4GB DDR2 400MHz (need different set of ram) GPU: 1X Nvidia Geforce 8800 GTX. There's a 9600GT in the picture. PSU: Brand new Sharkoon PSU. The only new component in the system. Don't trust an old power supply. Not that this is perfect but it'll do just fine.
  9. Hi, I'm looking for a new power supply for my system. I have the MSI X470 Gaming plus max motherboard that has an 8 + 4 pin connector on top for the CPU power. I'm browsing for power supplies but I don't see any PSU mentioning that it has these connectors. What are they called? On a product page all I see is something like this: 1x 20-pins ATX or 1x 24-Pin-ATX12V-2.x, 1x 4+4-Pin-12V, 1x 4-pins 3.5", 8x 4-pins 5,25", 4x 6 + 2-pins PCIe, 9x 15-pin SATA I assume the 1x 4+4-Pin-12V would be the 8 pin connect
  10. Hi, I'm looking for someone with knowledge about the ArcServe environment as I need some help with a backup to tape job that I'm trying to do. I'm running ArcServe 6.0 so I don't have official support for it anymore. I'd really appreciate it if someone with experience about ArcServe could PM me! Thanks in advance!
  11. I have no clue. I sitll have my old PC but without a psu so maybe I'll come back when I have solved the problem because I'm obv not gonna sell it. I went to a pc store and told them about my issue. Even they didn't believe it. I'm pretty sure that the daily use of this CPU for the past 7 years has finally caught up to it.
  12. Little update on my tripple core i7 beast. Re-seated the CPU and fully inspected the pins plus the motherboard itself. Everything seems to be normal and the problem still isn't solved. I ran the Intel diagnostics test, but nothing strange resulted from that. It still thinks it's a legit happy 3 core CPU. Investigation continues... TESTRESULTS.TXT
  13. I think I have a pc at work somewhere that's using the same socket but I'm not sure. I'll continue to investigate and troubleshoot this problem. Never seen anything like this so I'm also very curious what this could've caused.
  14. I don't have a spare 1150 motherboard laying around to try. I think I'm just gonna keep using this for now. I plan to upgrade to a newer ryzen in a month or two anyway. I googled the problem but couldn't find anything related to this problem. Weird.
