Read some people use felt pads to insulate mobo screw holes, is this absolutely necessary ?

Thanks
 

A:mobo felt pads ?

necessary ? Sometimes. Sometimes not. Depends on board, mounting hardware, and case. If your motherboard came with them you should use them, even though it'd probably work fine without them. If you don't use them on the board, you can use them on the drive screws to reduce vibration.

I have a few questions about it
1)Does they work properly to remove heat because my laptop is too hot while playing games, so will it help to keep it cool?
2)Does cooling pad blows air in(sucks) or out?
3)my laptop has only few openings under it so will it be effective.
Thanks in advance.

A:Do you think cooling pads work?

Vexxum mate depends a lot on the ambient temperature and while I think they are a buit of overkill they can do no harm.

Justmake sure all of the vents underneath are kept clean along with the air intake for the cooler system. (On my Toshiba I have a small piece of fine curtain material over the fan intake to keep out the worst of it)

I am new to windows 8 - i got a new laptop with it so it wasn't my chocie
Among many things, there is one thing that makes me cry. Lack of those sticky notepads on the desktop. I always had them in windows 7 and I really miss them and I can't find anything like that for Windows 8.
I downloaded several apps for that from windowsstore but they don't allow you to 'stick' them on normal desktop. They work only on that weird desktop and you have to enter the app to see your notes. Not very usefull.
So I was wondring if anyone here can help me with that
Is there any way you can have a sticky notes on normal screen, just like in windows 7 ?

A:sticky memo note pads

exactly what do you use the sticky notes for? there are many to do apps in the Windows Store. as well as more traditional sticky type notes. for many of the apps, you can pin the stickies to the start screen. you don't have to launch the app to see the notes.

for a to-do list, I have a very basic one called to-dos. it's very small and light but it let's you see your to-dos from the start screen without opening the app.
there are lots of them out there but this one does what I need so I just kind of stuck by it even though it is very plain.

for sticky note type apps:

I like Sticky Tiles. You can have either a small tile or a full size tile for your sticky. It lets you do multiple colors as well as multiple styles. And the pins look great on the start screen. The only negative I saw was that once you choose your sticky's size, you can't later change it. You can only choose the size of the sticky at the creation of the note.

Memo Stick is pretty good. it has a cork board screen to pin multiple stickies of different colors. and then you can also pin these stickies to the start screen. not only does it let you pin individual stickies, but its main app is a live tile that'll rotate through your stickies. the only negative is the font for the pinned stickies on the start screen can be too small depending on the resolution of the screen.

there's task which has a single screen that looks like a cork board where you pin stickies to. but there's no start screen stick... Read more

Heya folks....I have a heck of a question.

I notice my kids Rock Band video game drum pad kit uses usb. How would I go about using it on my computer? I am a musician and thought it would be nifty. ALso...same question for the microphone.

Any ideas??

So far I downloaded and installed "usb-game-controller-setup" but it doesn't make the microphone work at all....

ALSO...I discovered that the mic is a Logitech Vantage USB Mic, and even when I tell my computer to record using it, I hear no sound. DOH....
 

A:Using Rock Band Drum Pads for my PC

The drums are just an Xbox-360 controller with a different button arrangement. As such, the computer would probably just identify the device as a standard controller. So you would need a program that would assign different sounds to different buttons.

In short, probably more trouble than it's worth.

Hello all,

So I have a Epson Stylus Photo PX800FW printer at home.

It has thrown up the error message about the ink pads now need servicing.

Like most people online, this was a bit of a shock as I haven't had it that long and it would seem very expensive for the service repair.

So I have found software online that you can use to reset the counter telling the printer to stop working.

But my big problem is this, it won't work on my model of printer!! Has anyone seen or been able to run this software on this model before?

The software is the SSC Service Utility v4.30.

Whats really annoying, and will probably stop me buying Epson again, is that (ignoring the cost of ink and boy does it love to drink ink!!!) is that this is a multi-function printer and it won't let me use the scanner!! I use that more than printing.

Any help for the forum would be great!

Cheers,

FC

All of a freakin' sudden Win7 doesn't detect my gamepads.

It was working JUST FINE until my previous problem occured (see previous problem here: My Hard Drive no longer shows up in My Computer)

Yes, I've done windows updates.
Yes, I've uninstalled and reinstalled the latest drivers.
Yes, my power option is on High Performance.
Yes, I changed the power plan settings to Disable Selective Suspend.
Yes, I've checked device manager and there are no problems detected.

If I were to reboot my computer and plug in my controller the gamepad usually works. Win7 detects it, makes that stupid USB sound, and all is dandy. But the minute I launch a game and start trying to map my controls windows does that gay noise where it says the USB is disconnected. Then it goes back and forth with the connect/disconnect noises. I can still see the power light on my game pad at this point. So I quit my game and look in Devices and Printers and it no longer displays my game pad. Then the power light on my game pad dissapears.

Seriously... what the F***?

A:Windows no longer detects my USB Game Pads

Sounds like you are losing connectivity/power on the USB port(s). Does the gamepad have an independent power supply or batteries or is it only powered by the USB port?

The first thing to try is this:
USB Selective Suspend - Turn On or Off
(turn it OFF, of course)

Let us know if that changes anything. Hopefully you are not dealing with a motherboard defect.

Hi folks, I've got a weird question.

I've got a pair of old Micosoft Sidewinder gamepads that only plug into the game port in sound cards (no USB). Unfortunately, my current Dell computer (Dimension 2400) does not have a game port. As a matter of fact, I don't know that any computers come with game ports nowadays.

Since I really like my Sidewinders, is there anything wrong with getting a $10 sound card (I saw a $7.50 one on Newegg) just so I can use that game port? Why spend $40 on 2 new gamepads if I can spend $10 and use my old ones?

My computer uses integrated sound, so wouldn't any PCI sound card be an improvement? It's not like I listen to music on my computer, or anything. The only time I turn on the speakers is to watch the occasional anime or play games.

I'm not a hardcore gamer either, so the volume is always turned way down anyway.

My main concerns are 2 things:

Will a faulty sound card damage my computer? I've rarely had a computer component fail on me before.
Will a cheap card sound incredibly awful?

Hi,

I have a relatively new Epson SX130 printer and its telling me to replce its ink pads. I installed a CISS ink system and was trying to clean the head to produce clean prints.

The power light is blinking and the paper/ ink lights are on. I read on the Epson website that a part needs replacing(ink pads) but i doubt it as its quite new. So tried looking for a reset utility to tell the printer that I have replaced the pads to get it running again.

Or if you have any other ideas on how to get my printer working again. Thanks.

Hi All,

Just taken apart my laptop (HP CQ60-420SA) so I could clean out the fan/heatsink and replace the thermal paste for the CPU/GPU. I anticipated that I would need a copper shim for the GPU as I knew it had a thermal pad. No problems there.

Unfortunately, I didn't anticipate these extra two thermal pads on the 'black box' chips next to the processor - I have no idea what they are!

The thermal pads are now torn, although the torn part is still stuck to the heatsink. My question is, do you think I need to replace these thermal pads with copper shims too or can I just leave them as they are?

Here's a picture to make things clearer: http://i.imgur.com/1vX5i.jpg

Thinking about it, when I ran Speedfan there were four temp readings - the CPU and GPU were sky high but the other two (which I presume were from these chips) were only in the 30s.

Thoughts?
