A few things that might help get those questions answered faster.
Be specific when you are talking about something - "my mp3 player is broken HALP!?"
- What kind of mp3 player, (brand and model)
- What isn't is doing now that it was before (the reason it is "broken")
- What were you doing to it last, right before it broke.. Did you maybe drop it?.. get it a little wet? try to flash the firmware?!

These all help in determining what can be done.
These rules do not just apply to MP3 players.
Just be as specific as possible and don’t leave stuff out, we want to be helpful here, try not to make it a scavenger hunt for clues!
These same rules apply for other situations like “I got a new motherboard and now my computer doesn’t post!”
-old motherboard model
-new motherboard model
-ram (speed)
and any other component you might have in there (most of the other stuff usually won’t matter but list what you know.

Well that was a mouthful...

But may I ask, what is the effect behind that in the old timely ceramic fuse installations specially, when a single fuse blows, it may also blow several completely unrelated fuses in circuits parallel to it. (I'm not meaning a cascading failure; the D-system prevents those well.)

I've just been cucked by my best friend and he doesn't even know he's cucking me. I was literally hanging out with him while the girl I liked for 4 years just called him up to "watch a movie" at her place. And this is happening literally 4 days after I revealed my feelings and got rejected by her. I don't know what she's doing. She keeps staring at me during classes and while I was walking with my friend, she walked up to him asking if he wants to hangout at night completely ignoring me. My best friend was so happy because he gets to fuck her and like the pussy I am, I just congratulate him while keeping my thoughts to myself. What the fuck is she doing to me. I'm trying so hard not to show it hurts but every time I see her, I see a picture of her, or even hear/see her name, I feel like I'm cold on the inside, like all the color was sucked from me. What do I do. this is the first time I've ever showed someone my feelings and this shit happens.

No everyone knows how much I like her. OH YEAH I forgot to add this. Before all this she asked me out to prom, I ofc said yes. Now this shit happenens. Everyone knew how much I like her after I said I'm going with her to prom. Everyone knows I liked her for three years, INCLUDING my friend. And I can't just talk about it with them, I just can't.

Did you buy her ticket already? If yes, try to sell that shit or find another chick to take. If you're still taking her after this you deserve to get cucked.

Update your brower. Update your extension to rip stuff.
>it seems to become shittier as it gets to newer versions
Clearly not.

Exactly. Youtube's site has been updated, your ancient browser & extensions have not.

Either disconnect your ancient hardware/software from the internet or keep it updated. There is no other option.

So, I have stumbled upon a pc-doctor-USB. Are there any kind of hardware locks on them? Or would copying the whole thing to another USB work?
Im not talking about all those free programs, im talking about the real pc-doctor that companies use.

Thank you, thats kinda what I was wondering about. You dont need any kinds of codes or serials to use it. So far ive been using it with my computer disconnected just to be sure.
I guess sharing it online would be a bad idea then.
I have no idea how the serial work though, you can boot directly from the USB.

By that I mean that it can be used by anyone, but I suppose they dont care since they can still find who owns it?

It's possible they sell it without any kind of serialization, but for a product that starts at $329 it's kind of unlikely. I've had $100 products that require entering a serial number to unlock the device before booting the first time. After the first boot it was written to the drive so no entry required.

Do you care if the company who bought it gets in trouble? Its not like they could stop it from working offline.

I would also try dd'ng it to another drive and making sure it actually boots and functions before sharing any images of it. Its possible they could check the USB drive manufacturer code and if it doesn't match it'll detect the difference and fail. Don't want to look like a fool AND have whoever bought it get in trouble.

Intel driver support assistant tells me I have 1 update.
- but It doesn't say what it is or how to apply it.
Does this program automaticity install the update?
or what exactly do I need to do?

I installed the latest version and after much whirring and trashing of disk it told me an update was available. I scrolled down the page and it showed me which device needed to be updated.

So I guess... scroll down?

Jailbreak.

If it's iCloud locked? Return it to the owner and let them unlock it.

Get picture of knucklehead
Get first & last name of knucklehead
Search facebook for first & last name knuckleheads in your general area
Use photo to verify which knuckleheads on facebook is your knucklehead

Once you find him on one social media site it's usually pretty easy to find them on other social media sites, and from there its just time until you figure out where they live. If they haven't blatantly posted their address on social media then usually its leaked via EXIF.

I have a Western Digital My Passport Ultra. I was going to back up my stuff the other day, but unfortunately my hard drive is in read only mode for some reason. I tried reformatting it into various partition types but it still throws this error.

Any idea what to do? Reddit's tech support sub is closed for the goddamn protest today, and I have to work for the next five days.

In the future don't buy an hd+case from a manufacturer. Whether Seagate, WD, or Toshiba, they all fucking suck donkey balls and are unreliable as fuck.

More than likely your case is in read only mode because its bridge board suffered some kind of colossal failure, which is annoyingly common on Seagate & WD cases. Extra fun is that many manufacturer cases come with proprietary USB-only drives inside, so you can't just crack it open and transplant it to a normal third party case - the controller ends in a USB port.

If you're lucky its SATA and you can just buy a $15 or $20 case and use it for the 1-2 years before the case fails... and then buy another one for $15-$20. You could also spend $50+ and get a high case that would likely outlast the drive... but it could also fail in 1-2 years.

did you try the wd tools that came with the drive, load them off onto another usb drive. also, there are a large variety of of free tools on CNET, my favorite is minitools, allows for many variable rechanges




Free space fragmentation... Anonymous 17/09/17(Sun)19:42 No. 22497 ID: 4ae916 [Reply]

I'm using Perfectdisk Pro. 13.0 and have a large amount of free space fragmentation on my system drive.
I've tried a boot defrag and am currently consolidating free space before I defragment again using their S.M.A.R.T system. but I've done this before and still had the same issue.
Any idea how to remedy this?
(I'm not opposed to using another defragmenter then using PD again)

Anonymous 17/10/08(Sun)10:17 No. 22498 ID: cab8d4

An honest question here. Given that Perfectdisk hasn't been popular since the days when VAX systems were popular, why have there been two posts on /halp/ referencing it in the past couple months? It's weird. It'd be like discussing TeraTerm, a terminal program for Windows that hasn't been updated since Windows NT 4.

Did you guys penetrate their network and install a payload in their software?

I already have a Desktop. Need a laptop that can be bought cheap but then upgraded. I'd like to be able to upgrade the graphics card, hard drive, processor and RAM. I don't mind how bulky it is, I just want to be able to change its hardware and be able to play games in as best graphics as possible when I'm away. I looked up some thinkpads but I can't find anything like this.

What you probably want is a business or enterprise laptop, which are typically still fully upgradeable (with the exception of the video card).

If you want to upgrade it cheaply look for laptops that use SATA drives and not PCIe storage, as PCIe storage is typically implemented in a proprietary or soldered-on fashion. M.2 exists but for some reason a lot of laptops are going the proprietary route (probably for the same reason as Apple - planned obsolescence). Maybe licensing costs? Dunno.

If you stick with business and enterprise equipment there's usually a lot of technical documentation available including FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) which basically means parts that companies IT can replace themselves if they buy it from the manufacturer. When you poke around those docs you can determine what hardware is actually inside the system.
