    I have a MSI 760GMA-P34(fx) motherboard with windows 8 and i got a new ssd which i’m trying to make my primary booting drive instead of my current regular hard drive. I have a usb keyboard which from what i read online is the issue because apparently usb does not work while booting my pc? so i spam the del key for bios when i start my computer and nothing happens. i’ve presses every single F key and nothing happens so i’m assuming it’s the keyboard that needs to be changed but that’s still pretty wack. Either way, is there any possible way to access my bios without having to get another keyboard (which idk if that’s the best solution anyways) because my options seem limited. I don’t have an uefi settings that i can find, so it looks like i’m at a dead end.

    First of all, forgive my ignorance, It’s possible that my mistakes and decisions might shock you. I am but a simple man trying to take matters into his own hands. Recently My girlfriend’s macbook air passed away, well the motherboard did. The SSD survived but retrieving the content turns out to be quite expensive (at least where I come from it’s about 150 $). So I told my girlfriend that I would handle it as I imagined the process to be perfectly manageable and thought it to be a good occasion to prove my worth (turned out to be peanuts). I was terribly wrong, I have no Idea of what I’m doing and need some help. Here is what I’m dealing with: A PCIe 12+16 Pin SSD I bought this M2 adapter https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0173O... and a SATA to usb.3 cable on Amazon. The SSD fits into the adapter but I seem to be missing something to fit the adapter to the SATA thingy. What it is I do not know, I've tried to look it up and have only managed to get more and more confused with the tech vocabulary, Now, i know that you can buy enclosures for the ssd drive that you just connect to your pc and voila, but they seem to be quite expensive (around 80$) and i’m just looking to extract the content and don't plan to keep it as a permanent drive. If anyone can help it would be great. Sincerely, some stranger on the internet.

    My younger brother did a dirty trick on me. Basically, he wanted me to buy him a WD Hard Drive for him on Amazon with my credit card and he gave me the cash, so I did it. This was 5 months ago. And last week he wanted me to buy him another WD Hard Drive with my card and he would give me the cash, so I brought him another one. And 2 days ago he said it came broken so he returned it and I got my money back in my card, so I gave him the money back in cash Well, I found out that the hard drive he returned 2 days ago, was actually the hard drive he brought 5 months ago. Basically, he dropped his original hard drive, decided to have me order another hard drive of the same brand, so he could secretly return it with the broken hard drive that he got 5 months ago, and keep the new one. A switch. Basically, the hard drives just have stickers, so he switched the stickers and made it looks flawless. So on the outside, the hard drive he returned looks the same. I'm a little afraid I'm going to get in trouble, IDK if I should call and be honest with them, or let it go, or idk if I could get in trouble for stealing or fraud. Is there any way they could tell the hard drive my brother return was switched? Are there serial numbers or something in the inside that's unique to each one of the same model? This is the hard drive he got. Anyways what should I do? https://www.i-tech.com.au/media/catalog/...

  • Is it possible if i make 5TB internal harddrive to external harddrive using ORICO external case, because it mention up to 2TB?

    Best answer: If the case says that it is good for up to a 2 TB drive then it is not going to work reliable with a 5 TB drive. ORICO makes more than one external case. Without knowing the exact model no one can guess whether it will work with a drive larger then the ones it claims to support.

  • I have this old pin drive, it's become corrupted over time. Is there anything I can do to revive it and get the files off of it?

    Best answer: clean the outside metal, make sure theres no blockage/interference from built up dust or rust. Make sure the metal isnt bent and that it locks in once inserted. Thats about all you can do. good luck

    i think you meant pen drive

    I currently own a Dell inspiron 5675 with AMD Ryzen 3 CPU, and an AMD Raedon rx460 GPU with 8gb or RAM. I want to boost my gaming performance a fair bit. Im definetely not looking for a top end cpu or gpu, but just a couple of steps up. I have been looking at processors such as the Ryzen 5 pro 1600, and grachics cars like Raedon rx580 8gb. For boosting gaming performance ( mainly fps) would it be more beneficial to upgrade the cpu or the gpu first ( sounds stupid but i would rather not upgrade both as then i would likely need to also upgrade the power supply aswell) AND would these both be compatible worth my pc ANY ADVICE MUCH APPRECIATED😁

  • Will hard disk drive be replaced by SSD in the future?

    Best answer: yes, however SSD drives are much more expensive. if they can get the storage capacity a lot higher without having skyrocketed prices, i don’t see why they wouldn’t. they are better in so many ways.

    The CD player I bought at enormous cost in 1985 when they were the latest thing and later gave to my dad is still being used by him every day. But that is exceptional.

    Most get thrown away in good working order just because they look tatty, or because the newer one sounds better: early digital to analogue converters built in to disc players are very poor by today’s standards.

    Need help. Very very new to PCs, I removed my RAM stick while my PC was running. I was simply excited to get to put in 16 GB rather than 8. I was sitting in discord, and all of a sudden I plopped it out. I closed my game, expected maybe some performance issues, nope. PC goes black. I didnt think anything of it at first, I just kept going. The PC never turned on. However, I see no burn Mark's that indicate something is fried. Everything boots up normally, fans work, LEDs work, RAM has no burn Mark's, GPU fans are still running, but I'm getting no display. Friends say since fans are running, GPU is running, everything is fine except no display, maybe I need to factory restart because I just ****** up my memory? Motherboard should be fine though cause everything else is working. I dont know.
