  1. practice and trial and error usually, i've been known to change the way i've routed a single cable at least 4 times before i was happy.

    don't look at the right side of the case behind motherboard though because then you'll see a mess of cables. :rofl3:


    like brown hornet says modular psu's make a big difference along with case design, usually i end up stowing most cables in a 3.5 drive bay when they can't be hidden behind the motherboard tray.


    main thing your looking for is a nice clean area for air to flow from front to back in area of motherboard, so a lot of cables tied up at the bottom don't really harm even though it may not look as nice and clean as bh's build.



  2. sorry tomk, been staring at my post making changes and refining it , so it read better and made more sense to me :mrgreen: so you may have missed those changes along with me missing your 3 reply's.


    yes linux will just talk to an android phone when connected by cable and you just open your file manager software and drag and drop files between the 2.


    guess only justin can verify if he has a windows or android phone, must admit from everything i've also been able to find out verizon only do that phone with an android os though.




    should add there are 2 or 3 modes used to communicate with a pc, mtp, ptp and usb mass storage mode, by default android uses the mtp mode i think, can't actually find the settings on my phone at the moment, probably because i haven't activated developer mode since i did a factory reset ages ago.


    more about such things in following links.




  3. things must be different over there then because i've never seen a dll or .exe file on any android phone (not that i've seen loads, probably 5 or 6 connected to about 3 or 4 different networks), ok tools directory could be on an android phone because the main folder seems to be named differently depending on manufacturer.


    so as far as i'm aware a dll and .exe files are useless and won't run on an android phone, well probably not unless you run them with some emulation software running on android first, also an .ini file is usually used for windows configuration, andoid uses .xml files i believe.


    folders are usually something like,

    phone name/identity

    main folder (named internalstorage on 1 and store_xxxxxx on another android smart phone i have.)

    then main folders inside that are

    alarms, android, dcim, download,movies,music,notifications, pictures, podcast, ringtones

    depending on what things installed on the phone you may have extra folders like amazon etc.


    files outside folders are either .xml or .txt depending on what's installed on phones by manufactures/apps on my 2 phones, one's a sony and the other is a motog.




    should add i understand from what you posted that the windows files seem to be used for the usb driver/setup and are stored on the phone so a windows pc can communicate with it but then again i don't understand how the windows pc can access those files and that usb driver if it needs them to communicate with the android phone in the first place.


    is that typical verizon logic? :laughing:

  4. windows phones menu look like this :- https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=windows+phone+menu&biw=1189&bih=808&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMI6Ji2kaHKyAIVgj8UCh2tvQMb


    android phones menu looks like this :- https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=android+phone+menu&biw=1189&bih=808&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMIzZ2qhKHKyAIVxtYUCh3u6ACG


    should be easy enough to know if you have a windows or android operating system on your phone.


    windows you'll need to sign up for a windows account and get your apps from the windows store.

    android you'll need to sign up for a google, amazon or samsung account and get your apps from their stores.



  5. if it was always on charge the problem shouldn't be the battery running flat, unless the usb port is broken so it no longer charges.

    no idea what best buy will do but i wouldn't accept anything but either an exchange for a new one or my money back so i could buy a different model tablet, no idea what other tablets are in that price range over there but think this might be another choice if you want windows :- http://www.amazon.com/HP-Stream-Windows-Includes-Personal/dp/B00NSHLVD2/?tag=bestlaptop096-20


    personally though i think you may be better doubling the price range and see what tablets are available then.

    i'd probably look at getting one of these :- https://tablet.ninja/finding-the-best-tablets-under-200/




    maybe this :- http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2490181,00.asp

  6. usually when a tablet is "dead" it's because the battery ran to low and i think putting it on a trickle charge (eg. from pc usb port) for 12hrs or so and then just holding in the power button for 20/30 seconds will bring it back to life if my memory serves.



  7. when it's slow like that, try turning off the wifi of your router and see if things improve, of course you need to be connected by wire to the router on the pc your testing, if things are back to normal then this would suggest you have some wireless device that is causing your slowdown problems.


    i'm surprised you haven't been able to find and fix the problem by now though.




    To add a program to SuperShield's local whitelist you can click on the green shield icon in the lower right corner of the Windows desktop screen by the time display, select Protection Level, then set the Blocking Notification Method to Prompt for Override (Advanced).


    Open the program in question again, and when the SuperShield blocking screen appears, add the programs to your white list by clicking on the red Always Allow button, provided that you know for sure that these are legitimate programs, or add them to the "Always Block" list by clicking on the green Always Block button to avoid seeing the warning screen for that specific executable.


    For PC Matic's scan, you can white list individual items from the end of a new scan by clicking on the red rectangle under the headings for Other-Drivers Test or Services Test; Performance - Startup Applications Test; or Security - High Level Threats.





  9. personally even for low budget systems i think i'd be looking at the intel pentium g series of cpu's, ok your not going to beat the craig list deal you've found but for new then something like this is what i'd be looking at. :- http://www.frys.com/product/7869489?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG


    that cpu compared to the 5600k you found on craigs list. :- http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Pentium-G3220-vs-AMD-A8-5600K



  10. i have the same problem with my laptop.. where can i find the degauss mode..??


    Really? A thread from 2007?? Degauss mode is in the settings on your monitor. ;)


    sorry but there won't be a degauss mode on a laptops lcd monitor, degauss was for crt monitors and cathode ray tubes, lcd monitors work in a completely different way.




    so no idea what screen problem Kim Marie Anne Ureña has but degaussing certainly won't be the fix for it.


    if you wish to keep trying to find a solution for your monitor, it would be best to start a new topic in the user to user forum here:






    Do you think if I did a System Restore it would get rid of this BSVC problem?

    probably as long as the restore point is earlier than when the problem started, i think a windows update is the cause so it might also be worth manually installing updates 1 at a time after the restore until you find the one that causes the problem uninstall that update and hide it so it doesn't keep getting installed again.
