    Password protecting a thumb drive

    Does anyone know if there is a way to password protect your thumb drive. Or any other kind of security that I could add to it.

    Legal music file sharing program.

    Arent there a ton of places where you can pay one flat fee to download unlimited music? I think they only charge if you put it on a portable device, I cant remember the exact details though.

    CPU with 91°C (195F)

    You should probably call their tech support because it sounds like something might not be working properly. Do you know if all the internal fans are running?

    CPU with 91°C (195F)

    Hmm, well Im not really sure how you could change the temperature on a laptop. Are you using it on a soft material i.e. covering the exhaust vents like if it is being used on a bed?

    CPU with 91°C (195F)

    Well firstly stop using that computer because at those temperatures you will wear out the motherboard or cpu really fast. In order to help you though we will need more information about your system. What cpu do you have and what model motherboard. Also list any other components in the case.

    Pros and Cons of getting an Iphone

    I actually got to use one the other day at the i store. I didnt care for it, but it was at least an interesting thing. The touchscreen is actually alot better then I had expected but I still had some trouble with hitting multiple letters on the keyboard.(I dont think it would be possible to...

    Computer died?

    My power comes from a surge protector strip, so I guess that would throw out the dirty power idea. They RMA'd the board but Im still not sure what caused the problem. Hopefully when I get the new board it will say what was wrong with the old one.

    Calculators Engineering statics calculator

    Thats what I had always thought. Maybe the professor was thinking that it would be easier to solve quadratics since the ti-89 will solve them with alot less effort. But this would'nt merrit spending 100 + dollars to simplify an already simple process. Also, Maybe to make vectors easier to work...

    Calculators Engineering statics calculator

    Thats a good point, I think Ill just wait and see what happens. He said that test problems would be of the same difficulty as the homework, so if the homework requires a better calculator I guess Ill know. The funny thing is, is that my school requires a graphing calculator, but you cant...

    Calculators Engineering statics calculator

    My professor today told the class(engineering statics) that we should invest in the ti-89 or an equivelant. He claimed that the ti-83 was good for middle school but not for University work. However, I was forced to buy a ti-83 because the math department at my school doesnt allow anything...

    Overclocking Troubles.

    I agree with Warren on this one. Overclocking voids most warranties on your computer. Which could be extremely expensive to replace. I've gone through 2 motherboards without making any modifications to the system and can say I would never take the risk in overclocking unless you have an...

    Computer died?

    If I had money I would probably just update my system and not worry about it but I have to stick with what I have for now. I actually have'nt made any modifications to the board or to the bios. (save changing the power supply to cool'n quiet mode.) What do you think about the fan...

    Computer died?

    Yeah I really like asus as a company especially since they already replaced the same board six months ago without a hassle, although I doubt they would let me get a different board but I guess I can ask since Ill be corresponding with them anyway. Ive read on their forums that this is a fairly...

    Computer died?

    well what does it mean if I connected the power supply motherboard and cpu and absolutely nothing happens? Because Ive done that much and there isnt any activity. Should it even do anything if I take the cpu out?

    Computer died?

    No there arent any led's on the front or back. But if it was bad ram or graphics etc shouldnt it at least post?

    Computer died?

    Well I though I would give it a shot posting here since no other computer or help forum seems to come up with any results. So here goes. About six months ago my motherboard on my desktop computer went dead suddenly. It was on one minute, I left it to eat dinner (no more than 15 min) I came...

    Is it better to leave computer on all day or to turn on and off?

    Well if you leave it on all the time you tend to wear out the all the fans and probably your hd to. Whereas if you turn your computer on and off often Ive heard that it wears out the motherboard, due to the power surge it gets every time you turn it on. ( but I would consider that latter more...

    A really infected machine

    It sounds like clearing the hd is the best option. That is if you are allowed to.

    Computer Inaccessible!

    If its the bios password. i.e the one that appears before a windows screen appears then ive heard that you can simply reset the cmos. By taking out that little battery in the motherboard for about 5-10 min. or by resetting the jumpers. If its the windows password it gets more complicated and...

    My internet is soooo slow.

    If its wireless are you using it in the same place you always have? Try updating or reinstalling the wireless card drivers. See if the problem is the same if you move the computer closer to your wireless router. one last thing, I like adware from lavasoft, it cleans up alot of things but I...

    How do I make a lan?

    I have yet to see good tech support from any company, you can almost always figure it out yourself by surfing the web rather than playing games with these tech support people. So I wouldnt recomend it but thats just me.

    How do I make a lan?

    I just skimmed this but just to clarify you can create a lan between two laptops with an ethernet. You can share just about anything through this connection including cd drives etc. I would suggest searching this on yahoo or google and you will get plenty of results on how to do this. Also...
