  1. hi there everyone, I've been trying to search online to see what memory and how much memory a Compaq Presario CQ43 laptop will support but cant find details so far online, is anyone able to shed some light here because me mate wants to upgrade the memory in it. Atm it has 2gb total installed, that's all the info I am able to tell you at this point in time.
  2. I have chosen a 2 bay enclosure because i will be adding a 2nd hd to increase storage capacity, so it will also be killing to birds with one stone.
  3. hi there, I currently have a external hard drive that is out of warranty and as of last night the power supply has died on me, I've looked around multiple places for new power supply and cant find anything, so here is the question, if i replaced the current enclosure with a Astone RD-230 2Bay USB 3.0 Hard Drive RAID Enclosure for 3.5" hard dives will this be a suitable enclosure so the hard drive works as a external hard drive again. Thank you.
  4. hello there, I currently have a few questions in relation to setting up multiple hard drives on my current computer, atm i currently have a 1tb WD green edition hd as my main comp hd and i want to have a ssd or multiple ssd installed as "main" hds and use the wd green edition as a storage drive. So which would be the best set up: 1: purchase a 256gb ssd drive and install all my current data onto it as a main drive, total of 219gb. 2: is it possible to set up multiple hds Eg a 60gb ssd for just my Operating system and then a 256gb ssd for programs, comp games ect? is this possible or do i need to have the Operating system installed on the same drive as my programs and games for everything to work? Cheers....
  5. Thanks alot for that, I will try this out.
  6. Hi there people, I have a networking question, At the moment I currently have two desktops running windows 7 connected to windows 7 home network and I was wondering can I connect the Epson stylus R310 to the home network so I can print off documents from my computer which currently doesn't have the printer connected to it? If so and it can be set up could some one give me instructions on how to do so provided it is not too complicated to set up. One computer has a wireless network card installed into it while the other pc is connected to the wireless modem if this helps. Any help and advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  7. I currently have only one monitor at the moment, a Acer G235H at 1920 X 1080 resolution. If you're only running at 1080p a crossfire or SLI setup is beyond overkill. There is literally nothing available on the market today that will not run 1080p with all settings at max with a single 7970 or 680. Dasa gives the best tech advice on the forums, listen to him. :) yer I have decided that I will get just the one 7970OC edition with the 16gb ram.
  8. I currently have only one monitor at the moment, a Acer G235H at 1920 X 1080 resolution. Yer I'm pretty sure I am only running 6gb now, i'm pretty sure one of the memory sticks has died on me.

    Water cooling upgrade

    Well preferably on the back as i'd like to avoid carving the case up if that is possible. Thanks 4 the reply.
  12. hello there, I am considering purchasing a water cooling kit for my current pc and was wondering what system is best and value for money, I currently have a antec dark fleet 35 series pc case, a AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor and a power color hd 5850 gfx card and corsair tx 750w power supply unit. I was looking at cooling systems such as the : SWIFTECH H20-320 Edge Thermaltake Pro Water 850i XSPC Rasa 750 RX360 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit Thermaltake 880i ProWater Also has any had any experience with this or built there own water cooling system as well? any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
  13. Thanks for the advice people.
  14. The product is still under warranty and as for the dial even when it is past the on position I still get no response, lights on or anything from the hard drive.
  15. Hello there, I currently have a samsung story 2tb usb 3.0 external hard drive and as of today I don't have any power to the actual hard drive at all, no lights light up nothing, I was wondering if any knows a location to purchase a power supply unit for this hard drive, its a dual voltage power supply of 12V and 5V with a ampage of 2A (amps) I have already tried places such as Jay car, Dick Smith Electronics and Tandy with no such luck. They have told me that these power supply set up is uncommon and also with DSE (dick smith electronics) they don't stock anything over 1.5A in terms of the power supply units. Also if anyone knows a rough costing that would help. If possible I would like to avoid having to purchase a new hard drive enclosure and put the original hard drive into a new enclosure, but if that what it comes to then I'll end up going down that path. Any help much appreciated. Thanks.
