  • Hello, wandering if anyone can help? Ive been asked to design a synchronous sequential counter that will count the following?

    Best answer: Synchronous means that the counter will increment at each clock cycle. Usually the source of the clock signal is external to the counter.

    You might notice that the low-order bit on the right simply toggles on each clock signal.

  • Can you change where files are stored on a PC?

    I’ve just installed an SSD into my PC with the intent to store game files on it so they run faster, however I was also wondering if there was a way to port over game files that are already saved onto my hard drive? Asking for a friend.

  • I was trying to add a new SDD hard drive and the bios recognized it however, upon booting to windows it was not identified. What's wrong?

  • External hard drive, internal condensation?

    I just bought a new external hard drive, a 4tb unit from Seagate (This is the web page: https://www.seagate.com/consumer/backup/expansion-hard-drive/?sku=STEB4000100) When it was delivered it sat outside in 9 degree cold for over 24 hours then brought indoors and has sat unopened for about 2 days.

    I just bought a new external hard drive, a 4tb unit from Seagate (This is the web page: https://www.seagate.com/consumer/backup/... When it was delivered it sat outside in 9 degree cold for over 24 hours then brought indoors and has sat unopened for about 2 days. It is still sealed, still in the packing envelope. My question is: I know you let the unit acclimate after cold weather but could condensation have formed inside the unit? And if it did would it leave trace contaminants on the drive itself? I don't think there are any large vents on the case and I think the box is closed off to a degree, but would this still happen? If it's anywhere possible I think I'd feel better and get an exchange delivered when it's warmer. Thanks in advance!

    Best answer: The problem is the driver file on your computer is corrupted and that's why it's not working.

    Try downloading the driver for your mouse (or using the software that came with it.) When it asks "automatic or manual?" select manual, and select the driver you downloaded - not the default one in the System32 folder.

    Hopefully this will overwrite the damaged file and the mouse will install as normal.

    Alternatively...go to another computer running XP, where the mouse works, and copy the MOUSCLASS.SYS file from it, and put it on your computer. This is just a file that came with Windows so you're not doing anything illegal here. Again hopefully that will fix the problem and the mouse will install properly.

    Best answer: 4 KB is a very miniscule amount of memory. I wouldn't worry about it. I personally use a program called defraggler to defragment my hard drives because I'm just not happy with how the windows defragmenter doesn't show any info or the sectors. Windows the driver doesn't tell you anything at all. So I use this instead because it tells me whether the drive is healthy or not and it shows each sector as well as it does many other things that are pretty nice features to have use of.

    I'm definitely not a fan of using all these kinds of utilities for the very reason that you just experienced as Malwarebytes actually being the problem. In my opinion, because I can do it manually, those utilities like that are a waste of space and highly unnecessary but I do use defraggler because it does actually have beneficial features that I want.

    Please do read up on anything before you install and use it. What you're considering might not be for you.

    Best answer: It's definitely the keyboard. I doubt a driver reinstall would do anything, and basic keyboard functions do not need any driver, as USB keyboards already function right off the bat with Windows, except special features might not work. But shift and volume and disabling things on the screen seems to mean definite hardware problems with the keyboard. I would replace it in a heartbeat if it was just a $10 keyboard. There are on-screen-keyboards (OSK) if you need a temporary one. OSes should have them built in; there should be free ones on the internet as well. https://www.techsupportalert.com/best-fr... If the keyboard has software from the manufacturer, you might be able to use that to disable certain buttons that keep being pressed, like the volume button, if you want to keep the keyboard. If it was really expensive, then you may feel like going to all the work of combining the function of disabling the volume button, and use some third party keyboard software, like for key remapping, to disable the shift buttons, and enable other buttons such as any extra mouse buttons or buttons you never use on the keyboard to perform as the shift key. If under warranty, maybe send it in. Also, as mentioned, try cleaning it out, and let us know if there was ever liquid spilled on it.
