  1. I recently reformatted Windows but now my DVD drive isn't popping up in my control panel. In Device Manager it just has a yellow icon on it. When I put in a DVD with a movie or an installation disc nothing happens, it doesn't even spin up. The drive was working fine before I reformatted it. It is detected in the BIOS and during startup POST. The drive is a Samsung BA59-02702A TS-U633F
  2. I recently set up some dual monitors on my Windows box and for some reason the monitors aren't on the right direction. I've tried Ctrl + P to open the projector settings but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. I tried switching HDMI ports but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. How do I fix it so that I scroll the mouse left-to-right to access my computer monitors on either side. To be more clear, what is happening is that to get my mouse to my Left monitor I have to move the mouse to the right, and vice versa for the Right monitor. I'd like to be able to just use it like one big screen rather than playing monitor maze every time I switch between them.
  3. Its pretty easy. Here is what you do: Buy your own networking equipment for your house. Buy a wireless signal bug detector like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Professional-Wireless-Signal-Bug-Detector/dp/B000AXH7MG/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top Reformat all of your hard drives and install a fresh version of your operating system on them. Use a VPN for all web traffic: http://torrentfreak.com/which-vpn-providers-really-take-anonymity-seriously-111007/ Encrypt everything with TrueCrypt and store your encryption keys on SD cards and hide them
  4. Thanks Simon, going to check this out before I go to buy a new one. To answers your questions: It's all the time, and its on more sites than youtube. My upload is supposed to be 25 megabits per second. Speedtest.net gives me 700kbps upload but my download is close to 800 kbps too. I didn't know downloads were this slow too. Glad I checked! Signal is weak so that could be it. Ill try moving closer and hooking it up with a cable.
  5. I have an older, but not too old Western Digital 1TB External drive: USB 3.0 It stopped working following a Windows Update. I'm running Windows 8. The drive still works on my Mac and it still works on my laptop so I'm not sure what's going wrong with the Windows 8 desktop.
  6. Okay I'm asking a lot of questions here at once. I'm not too savvy with computers. So in my apartment I have a TL-WR340G router and my upload speed is really slow. I do a lot of video editing for YouTube and so I'm trying to figure out how to upload videos faster. I seem to be capping out at around 700 Kbps but I'm supposed to be getting 70 megabits per second on this connection. Everything is hooked up over wireless. The speeds are the same on my new Mac and on my old windows PC.
  7. I also just got a Chromebook for school but the WiFi signal on it sucks. I don't think it is my college's routers because it picks up my phone and iPad fine. Is there any way to boost the signal strength of the Chromebook so that I can get a stable connection around campus or at least in my apartment?
  8. I've got a brand new MAC for school but a bunch of the programs I need to run are Windows-only. Is there any way to run them from my MAC computer or do I have to install windows on it somehow?
