    Ethernet cable not detected + DVD drive won't read discs

    My brother's Frankenstein computer (will have to look up full specs) just stopped being able to detect the ethernet cable after a power outage that blew the transformer & took the power out almost all day. His computer was plugged in to a brand new APC. The computer has Win10 but says it is not...

    How to mouseproof a computer chassis?

    So, it turns out that the stupid little mice keep getting in to Mom's computer & pissing all over the video cards & causing them to fail. She's on video card #3 right now. I don't think we can put plastic or something directly on top to protect it-- they'd probably chew through it, so I'm...

    Transferring data from HDD to SSD

    So, my mother surprised me and got me a 1Tb SSD card with V-NAND technology (same as 3D-NAND) and some more RAM (they were on sale). I want to move some of my games over to the new drive & see if they run faster or work better. I have games like Skyrim, Elder Scrolls Online, World of Warcraft...

    Computer Freezing

    Does this flooring look ok for a laundry room/mudroom?

    As many of you know, I'm trying to renovate and the flooring in my laundry room & guest bathroom are terrible. It's right at the back door so it's a mudroom too. Much of it is just the plywood substrate right now and the cheap vinyl sheet is full of tears. I'm looking for something I can put...

    Rotted subfloor, notched joist, & other problems that need repair

    As some of you may have seen on sister forums, I'm living in a house that needs a lot of repairs/updates. I believe it was pretty much a DIY build back in the 30s or 40s. From what I can tell, the house originally consisted of a laundry room, one bathroom, one bedroom, the kitchen and a living...

    Multiple issues on Windows 7 Ultimate

    Strange sheet vinyl patterns

    I saw a sheet vinyl pattern that looks like diamond plated steel stuff and thought it was funny. It made me wonder about what other crazy patterns are out there. So, what is the craziest pattern you've seen? (This is basically just a thread for fun and sharing pics of weird vinyl sheet)...

    Which vinyl plank brands are good and which are bad?

    I am planning to get some vinyl plank flooring for my kitchen, hallways, and laundry room. I need it to have a nonslip texture but be relatively easy to clean. I want something easy to install that does not require glue-- some sort of click-lock floating floor. Anyway, which brands out there...

    My bathroom floor project

    So, this one had some mixed results. I really should have looked this up online before tackling it, but I relied on advice from an elderly friend on some things and didn't even think to check online for solutions. My house was built in the 30s or 40s if not earlier and at some point some...

    Peel & stick vs click lock

    I need to take up the old ruined parquet flooring in my kitchen as well as the carpet in the adjacent west hallway. I need to install new flooring in those areas as well as the south hall with bathroom/laundry area. Its a lot of area to cover and I need to come up with some good replacements...

    Salutations

    I know, I use the same greeting title on several forums. LOL. I'm Zanne. I'm originally from California but I moved around a lot and am currently in Louisiana. I lived in Singapore for 4 years and Guam for 5 years. Even though I've been back in the mainland US since late 2001, I still have...
