Wrong time on the PC clock
I bought a refurbished Dell PC on Amazon. Everything seems to work great, except the clock. Right now it says 6:44 pm, but the real time is 4:27 pm. I have checked the time zones, and all the settings. I am not sure it is a windows problem, but thought someone may be able to clue me in on how to fix this issue.
PC Won't Recognize External Drive
I have an HP desktop PC running Windows 10. I have a Western Digital My Passport external drive for running backups. I am using EaseUS Todo backup software. The last time I initiated a backup the PC did not recognize the drive. I changed cables and moved the drive around on different USB 3.0 connections, but could not get the PC to recognize the drive. The drive does light up so the connection is live. Why does the PC not recognize the external drive, and what can I do to fix that?
Top 5 mistakes I have made on a PC
5. Buying flight simulator for windows 95 and expecting it to work on Windows 10. It didn't. 4. Running 106 tabs on Google Chrome, 55 on Edge, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, 2 virtual machines, and 12 Microsoft Word documents and a PowerPoint at the same time. Guess what happened I used more memory than I had and the PC froze. 3. Forgetting to scan flight simulator planes before use for viruses. I fixed it before it was too late though. 2. Trying to burn a DVD in a CD only burner. It became useless and I used it as a Frisbee. 1. Screwing up configuration files in the C:/Windows/System32 folder. Luckily it repaired the operating system.
How to move a game completely from one PC to another
I really need a way to move a game downloaded on another PC into mine through an external hard drive. I am aware that Steam has such a feature but have not noticed one about the Microsoft store. Of course, I am using the same account on both PCs for getting the game. I am asking because there is no way I can download the game on my own (severely) metered mobile connection. So if I am not able to transfer the files from the other PC, I would be stuck not able to play a game I bought. Also, it is not possible for me to go to a place with the required internet facility to download it myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
How build a pc !!!!
Hi, how i told them in my last topic i shou you guys (HOW BUILD A PC) About hardware parts: Currently in the Market we just have two brands (intel and AMD) 1° The first step is choose the plataform intel or AMD, currently them work with this sockets: (For domestic Market) AMD: AM3+ AM4 intel lga1151 The amount of pins is different for any socket, so am3+ does not fit in am4 or the opposite the same with intel. BE CAREFUL SOME CPUS REQUIRE VIDEO CARD 2° After choose the cpu brand and plataform is time to motherboard and i will resume in three steps. 2.1 Select a motherboard with the same cpu socket 2.4 Check if they are compatible on the motherboard brand website 2.7 Choose a motherboard with quality, usually brands like ASUS, GIGABYTE,MSi, won't desappoint you 3° If you want or need choose the quantity of ram. The ram gen and speed need be compatible with the cpu and motherboard But usually choose some between DDR3 1600Mhz or 1866Mhz or DDR4 2133 or 2666Mhz and will work. In these days some between 8 or 16 GB is the recomendation 4° If you want or need choose a Video Card Currently in the Market again we just have two brands AMD with the radeon and nvidia with gtx and rtx models performance varies depending on the chip so more performance= more expensive The PCI E version is retrocompatible 1 2 3 and 4. 5° Choose a power supply Something between 300W or 550W will be enough (depending how powerfull and hungry he is) Power Supply with quality, Corsair or Seasonic are my tips 6° The case Just choose the design inside they have the same size to put the motherboard 7° how to assemble please watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhX0fOUYd8Q below i will clarify the models and the line up I am learning english (LOL)
Do you build your own PC?
Who else still builds computers from pieces? Do you install other operating systems on other machines? What do you use your other machines for? I want to build an old PC and repurpose it as a security hub for cameras. I also have a raspberry pi 3B to tinker with. What do you tinker with?
