    Is there a limit to upgrading RAM?

    My new Usus Laptop came with an 8GB chip soldered to the board and a removable 8 GB chip. Information about it says I can upgrade the removable chip to 16 GB but not 32. I think it might be about the double read thing but I don't know for sure. Actually I'm only posting this as information for...

    Keyboard backlight color won't stay set

    Actually it wasn't right after the reset. It kept reverting back to white instead of red. I was Ok with white. But I just got a firmware update and that did fix it. Now it stays the color I set it to.

    Keyboard backlight color won't stay set

    I fixed it. I reset my computer. It must have been something I did when I first set it up. I don't know what it was though. But it's good now.

    Keyboard backlight color won't stay set

    I just got an Asus ROG Zephyrus m15 GU502LU laptop. I like it but it has a problem. I prefer the display shuts off rather than a screen saver. Every time the display opens up the keyboard backlight color reverts to red. I set it to my preferred color and it stays til the next time the display...

    Share your Windows 10 desktop

    I'm definitely a minimalist. The Taskbar does appear when I move the mouse to the bottom. I also still use a few sidebar gadgets that appear on mouseover,

    Windows 10, Version 1903, 19H1, May 2019 Update SuperThread

    Occasionally I find a bit of news regarding an exploit or possible windows screw-up. I pretty much always look into it and on a small percentage of these I will actually take the recommended action to take care of it. Usually I find them to be a non issue and decide to ignore them. Other than...

    Windows 10 October 2018 Update

    The update went well for me. There was a concern. Microsoft Photos kept running in the background. I had to go into Settings - Privacy - Background apps and shut it off to get it to stop. Update: I went back in there and shut off several more apps. It calmed down the background activity a lot...

    Is a anti-virus program needed?

    From AT&T Community Forums: Re: Can I use a different modem AND router to connect with Uverse Internet? Yes. You have to have the AT&T provided gateway. Now, nothing is stopping you from turning both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios completely off and plugging in your own 3rd party product. Our...

    Is a anti-virus program needed?

    I thought I'd reset our router's DNS Servers to Comodo since we've changed to AT&T. They don't allow manually changing it. Their attitude is in essence "If you don't like it, go to another company". If you change it in the individual computer does the router change you back to their servers?

    Steven Black Hosts File causing problems

    I was using the Steven Black Hosts File to block malware and Ads. But lately the DNS Client kept activating and using 30 - 50% of my CPU and blocking me from doing anything online. By googling the symptoms of my DNS Client getting stuck like that I found that it can be caused by too large of a...

    unknown ssd/harddrive space

    This might not even pertain to this issue. But I thought I'd just throw it out there. My laptop came with 8 GB RAM. When I was running it like that it would claim like 10 or 11 GB for Pagefile. A little while back I added a second 8 GB RAM stick. Now it only claims 2.4 GB for the Pagefile...

    Fans not working

    Yeah I've played with the tiles thing in the native start menu a little. I used to be concerned about the active tabs that changed constantly. I thought it was too much overhead. But my current computer is the first one I've had with any balls. I used to freak out when I'd find that I was using...
