My Samsung Galaxy Y is over 2 years old now. Spends most of it's time in my pocket with all the loose change. Other than fingerprints which just wipe off with a screen cleaning cloth there is zero damage. My specs that I wear all the time have a 'scratch resistant' coating, which really works. I bel...

Thanks for the input guys, but just as I suspected. Darn good job I've kept backups as the data is (you can't understand how) valuable to me. Just a PITA restoring from DVD backups - over 1.5TB of data to restore. Was just hoping for a solution where I could copy certain files to a USB drive while I...

Data recovery.

I've been running 2x 1TB WD Green drives for nearly four years now, but one is now reporting 1400 'unstable sectors'. I've tried the simple option of just copying files across to another drive - windows locks up. Attempted Window's own scandisc and again windows locks up. Also tried a few software s...

I always use ubuntu for my file servers, so easy to work with. Can install ubuntu server then add the desktop part to make setup easier (I don't like the command line either).

Bonus here is there's so much info/help just by googling.

What concerns me is the PSU. Do you really want to trust your hardware to a cheap rebadged Chinese piece of....... Had one blow up on me, took GFX and RAM with it. Go for a reliable brand - Corsair, XFX, or Seasonic etc also, as knotscott has pointed out, that CPU is certainly underpowered by today'...

You don't actually need a switch. Just find the switch connections on the motherboard and carefully short them with a screwdriver.

GFX Upgrade

Currently running an HD5770, but I'm now looking for something more. I've got @ £200 to spend and was thinking nVidia (for a change), but for my money which would be my best route? I work with video and photos, minimal gaming, and a boost to my folding would tip the balance. 1090T - GA-890FXA-UD5 - ...

xp sp4? there's an official version of that? Some peeps have taken the sp3 and slipstreamed it with a rollup of all further updates until XP support was closed, and called it 'sp4'. It's not official - you're on your own with that, and all the included trash (worms, trojans etc etc) Hi After i inst...
