• The "Quick Questions that does not Deserve a Thread"...Thread.

The purpose of this thread is simple. It's for those that have quick questions regarding on anything computer or perhaps electronics related, where a thread is not necessarily required. The reason of why such thread is created is to help reducing forums from being cluttered with threads on minor questions which tends to be ignored, as well as keeping other threads on topic such as the "Computer Illiterate think they know things" thread, where the thread have practically became a helpdesk request thread. If you have any quick questions, such as "Can my computer run this game", or "How do I turn off automatic defragmentation", feel free to ask them here. If you have any questions that may require more opinions, diagnosing issues or is more complex opposing to a fast question along the lines of "What are some pros and cons over buying a GTX480 over the Radeon HD 5870", or "My computer BSODs when I plug in blah blah blah, and would not restart. Please help me diagnose my issue", it may be wiser to create a thread in an appropriate section instead. You may ask them in this thread too, but the resulting amount of attention you will receive on your question may be insufficient. Please be descriptive about your question when possible, rather than saying "my computer does not work how to fix?"
Sigh. I'll just ask here. Anyone got a clue [url=http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1021522-Problems-with-my-BenQ-24-quot-LED-V2410-Eco.]what's wrong with my monitor?[/url]
This should clear the crud out of the illiteracy thread, thanks binary.

Buy a new one and move on, if it is no longer in its warranty lifeline.

I've been waiting for someone to create a thread such as this one for a while now, but no one seemed to be interested in doing so.

Your best wish is to buy a USB to RS232 converter instead, and they're not expensive at all.

i want to get an external HDD (with an enclosure ofc) that has eSata and usb2.0 wires to use with it. if possible, when its on usb2.0 i would like it to draw all its power from the usb port, but ill need a plug anyway for eSata as i dont have powered eSata ports. now, is there anything you can recomend to me? i would like it to be no less than 1tb but if theres a 2tb drive that can run on usb2.0 power that would be great too. another question about external HDDs, if i bought an enclosure with a usb 2.0 and an eSata cable, could i put my own bare hdd in it and get the same effect?

Runs on eSATA + USB power, or over just USB if you need to. I got it with a duplicate of my laptop HDD, so I can literally swap them out with nary a care. So yes, you can put your own hard drive in it, as long as it's a 2.5" drive.

Like this but for eSATA: [img]http://bixnet.net/images/Cab-USB-YBlack.jpg[/img] Or you could splice your own by learning which pin delivers which.
I've got a wndr3300 flashed with generic dd-wrt v24; question might be confusing, sorry if i don't come through clear- I have a normal netgear router giving out wireless access & internet. I don't have ethernet connection anywhere in the house, so I use the B/G radio in the wndr3300 in client bridge mode, for my computers in my room. I want to know if it's possible to use the B/G radio in client bridge mode BUT ALSO use the N capable radio as another AP for NAS access. I wanna do this because my NAS server is in my room, and want to broadcast a separate wireless N signal that won't be slowed down by any other B/G device. Is this possible?

[QUOTE=B1N4RY!;25787865]Are you implying that the build-in com port doesn't requires drivers to operate?[/QUOTE] No it doesn't
[QUOTE=Wnd;25787927]No it doesn't[/QUOTE] Oh wow.
[QUOTE=B1N4RY!;25787953]Oh wow.[/QUOTE] You are really rude
[QUOTE=Wnd;25787982]You are really rude[/QUOTE] You call that rude? Also, you're wrong. All hardware requires drivers to function. If you say they don't, then that's just like saying a car can drive on its own without a driver.
[QUOTE=Wnd;25787927]No it doesn't[/QUOTE] So that's why every time I install Windows I have to install my Wifi drivers before I can get on the Internet. :downs: [editline]1st November 2010[/editline] [QUOTE=Wnd;25787982]You are really rude[/QUOTE] Just wait until he gets hyped up.
Yes, your posts are always rude, and you are all like I'm computer genius, rest of you are dumb. And oh, it doesn't require anything for me to install. If you meant some low-level driver then of course because you always try to find some mistakes on someone's computer related post.

Just maybe? And please do tell me what's the difference between a COM port controller that is embedded onto the motherboard's USB bus, and one that needs to be plugged into the USB port manually, assuming both have identicle chipset.

Okay, you win, I'm dumb kthxbai

system?
[QUOTE=Computermaster;25788196]I've seen different BIOSes use different fonts.[/QUOTE] Aaw. I wanted to use it. I guess I'll just look around the menu for something that looks "computery".
May I recommend "Terminal"? Try bolding it for a more BIOSy look. I don't know why I was stuck on Lucida Console there.

But what I meant by driver is that ones that I had to install manually and my point was wrong because I didn't know com port was embedded onto the motherboard's usb bus. Will pick up one of those convertors then I guess, sorry for being ignorant.

I'm sure he meant [B]de[/B]fragmentation. If only it were possible to turn off fragmentation permanently.
