    You got it. I had read the model number while it was upside down in the case and mistook an S for a 5. Sent off a support query to Gigabyte and got a quick response pointing me to the correct one.

    If you go to the article Huge has linked, you will find a link to a site that will check your email address against a list. I did and mine appears not be on the list.

    Thanks, Huge.

    The other basic test that's advisable and easy to do: run Memtest 86+ to check your memory. It boots with its own OS from a cd or flash drive. The Ultimate Boot CD contains that and most every other...
  10. The Budget Motherboard they'll never make

    For years I've thought that if I were a manufacturer of budget motherboards, I'd make a desktop board with four sodimm memory slots. Why? Because the world is awash in smaller capacity sodimms that...

    If you can get hold of an old video card from an obsolete computer, one being trashed or recycled, even an old PCI slot video card from the pre-AGP era, you could diagnose this. At least in the past...

    Like Android, Chrome OS is apparently based on linux, and I assume that like Android, parts of it are closed source. I read that this Acer has a second ram slot. so it could get a memory boost, and...

    You bought a #$%*** Chromebook?

    I did, a refurb from NE, for one specific purpose. I've been taking old Thinkpads to work, originally compact X-31's, but after killing two of those, much heavier T-40 or T-41's. All have been old...

    I tried it after that last big change in FF, but at least with my package of extensions, it crashed so often I stopped using it.

    As for FF, most of my computers are on ESR now. Some sites won't...

    Willing to bet the slower is connecting at a slower usb protocol, perhaps usb2 vs. usb3 for the faster. I doubt it has anything to do with the drives themselves inside the enclosures.

    After reading the linked article, it appears that the PNY with a different controller is a match for the original. However the Kingston with slower ram is not a match. Other products, such as the...

    Too true. Mobility and convenience have crowded out power. The mobile devices have "enough" power to satisfy our needs.

    Try it with a different psu if you have another. If nothing changes, it's more likely to be the motherboard than the cpu. If you have another video card I'd try that too.
