    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...
  2. 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...

    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...

    And at the risk of stating the obvious, don't forget to empty your recycle bin. I've had issues with external usb drives that give a "not enough space" message after I've deleted files, until I've...

    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.

    Hoping it's the OS. There are a few other glitches on the OS, such as quick launch icons launching the wrong app after the laptop has been on for several days.

    USB thumb drive problems

    I've had many problems with usb flash drives and laptops. An ongoing one is usb 2 drives defaulting to usb 1 speed. I put that down to power, and assume that a powered usb hub might cure it.

    The XP install in this laptop, overdue to be replaced, will get the tray icons mixed up after being on for days or weeks. Click on an icon and something else opens.

    Icons aren't the problem. Googling found one possible answer saying that Windows had a 5000 folder limit in setting behaviour and suggested a registry change that reset that to 10,000. I need to give...
