USB Type-C is still susceptible to its predecessor's flaws

Q: USB Type-C is still susceptible to its predecessor's flaws

It's been years in the making but USB Type-C finally made its grand entrance this past week on Apple's new MacBook and Google's new Chromebook Pixel 2 a day later. While it's great to finally see the successor to modern-day USB,...

Preferred Solution: USB Type-C is still susceptible to its predecessor's flaws

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: USB Type-C is still susceptible to its predecessor's flaws

I don't get this. How can you infect a 220V wall charger which is just a step-down transformer in it's basic form with a virus? How can such a thing retain any data? It has no AI.

At Computex 2015, Intel has announced Thunderbolt 3, a new iteration of the company's high bandwidth hardware interface. And for the first time, Intel has ditched Thunderbolt's proprietary connector, instead opting to funnel everything through the soon-to-be-ubiquitous USB Type-C connector.

A:Laptop keys stopped working and some type the wrong thing...

It could be a virus. But It also could just be your keyboard is bad. You may need to take it to your local repair shop if it. Is a laptop and have them check the keyboard out for you. I really do not think it is a virus.

I have this dell laptop, XPS M1330 that I bought new the ship date was 01/08/2008. I have been wanting to upgrade to a SSD but I don't know what kind of connector the system board has on it. It is some of SATA connector but it has separate power connector. I am hoping someone can tell me what type of connector this is and do they make a SSD with this type of connector.

You can view the photo I took of the drive here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/13177305443/
 

A:Connection type?

Those connectors are SATA and SATA power (the longer one is SATA power). No idea how it works on a laptop though, I think the connectors just are fixed in place where the old HDD was. Before buying an SSD though, make sure it fits in the old space and you should be good, correct me if I'm wrong on any of this though.

Hi all,

So I'm upgrading my motherboard from an ASRock which has caused me nothing but problems since I got it to a MSI. They both are intel socket motherboards. My question is, how do I go about doing this? I would prefer to keep my files from my prior build but I have read that it is necessary that I reinstall my OS before I install my motherboard. I realize I can backup my PC's files and then reinstall them once I've installed the new motherboard but are there things that I should be mindful about while working on this process?

I have a lot of specific questions about this process. So maybe a step by step instruction or something like that would be a good place to start and I can see if I have questions from there.

Thanks

Hello. I want to find out why Windows does this cheking to my Memory Card. It happened while booting. After "Checking file system on D:
The type of the file system is FAT32." and other stuffs like: "Unrecoverable error in folder \System Volume Information\catalog.wci.", or "\Sounds\FosterThePeople-PumpedUpKicks(ButchClancyRMX).mp3 first allocation unit is not valid. The entry will be truncated." and "Cross link resolved by copying.
\Images\IMG00502-20121218-1525.jpg is cross-linked on allocation unit 6984." After this proces Windows started normaly. I've cheked my documents on the card and found out that some images were damaged and some old music appeared, but only samples, from about 18 seconds to 56. I foud, also, a "BOOTEX.LOG" file, written in Notepad. Could you explain what happened, please? &sorry if there are some bad spelled words.
 

A:Checking file system on D: The type of the file system is FAT32

It perhaps got removed incorrectly while some programs still had the file data open/in memory. I'd pull everything off the card, format it, and put the data back.

What is the card in? Does it have to be FAT32? Could you use ExFAT instead?

I have an ATI Radeon 9250 which is pci.
I'm looking to upgrade to a decent gpu.
I want to know if having a pci card necessarily means I only have a pci slot.
I have an Intel Celeron 2.4 GHz

I used PC wizard but didn't really come to any conclusion.
Under mainboard it says "Slot PCI : 32-bit [5.0v, 3.3v] - Empty"
Not really sure what this means.
I also see "Number of PCI Bus : 2"
Does this mean I could use two cards?
And also I see "Number of AGP connectors : 1"
Does this mean I have an AGP slot?

If I can upgrade, what might you recommend? I don't really play games, purely for game development.
If I'm stuck with pci cards, could I get anything that could significantly increase performance?
 

A:What type of card can I use?

You should take a look at your hardware instead of trying to find evidence buried within software detection methods. Learn what you have by seeing and identifying for yourself. Once we know for sure what you have available for card slots, we can then advise you with further details.

Hello TechSpot,

I am thinking of dual booting Linux Mint with my Windows 7 OS. I don't have a cd big enough for the installer, and I am thinking about buying a stack of CDs to use for booting. However, I don't know which CD type to buy. I will be using them also for Movie making, file storage, back up and etc..
Which one of these would work?

DVD R
DVD RW
DVD-RW
DVD-RAM

Thanks
 

A:What type of CD is good for installing Linux or other OS for dual boot?

They're DVD's, not CD's; though you can use them for burning a Linux ISO, it would be a waste of most of the capacity of a disk though. I'd choose DVD-R's.

You can always download Linux live creator and use that instead. You just need a spare 1GB USB memory stick/thumb drive.

This is the strangest error I have EVER seen in XP. I find no mention of this phenomenon anywhere on the web so perhaps I am the first? I surely hope not.

I have a Dell laptop with an integrated keyboard (i.e. built-in). Suddenly, and with no good reason, today my keyboard is acting strangely. Some letters I have to hit 3 times before they type. Others twice. And yet others behave as normal. The correct letter will eventually appear but my Lord no one should have to hit any character on the keyboard more than once.

I need this fixed ASAP because I am taking this PC out of the country with me and I have to be productive.

Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 

A:Windows XP - Keyboard - some letters I have to type multiple times for them to appear

Laptop keyboard problem

This could be a failing keyboard matrix, fairly simple to order a new one from Dell and fit. Or it could be the keyboard software faulty. A way to check for a failing keyboard, is to plug in a separate keyboard, into a USB socket. If all works well, then the fault is the Laptop's keyboard. Hope that helps, if only to eliminate one possible problem.

The keyboard on my Dell 1501, will not the letters I,O,P when I press them. My laptop is older, just three years, and has had moderate use, mainly my husband looking for information. It has the Vista program, I know, but it has worked basically fine for the little use it gets. Nothing has been spilled on it, could they be worn out/

Is there anyway to take the keyboard cover off without damaging it and look to see if there is some type of debris blocking the connection?
 

A:3 keys won't type on keyboard

Inspiron 1501 laptop from Dell seems straight forward for removing keyboard to check for debris. Check it out at:

Read directions carefully as laptops are quite delicate.

good Luck
Failing that, a new one shouldn't be too expensive.

I am building a PC and i found out about SSD drives. I have never heard of them before. Anyways I wanted to get one but I'm not sure how many GB do you need. I was thinking of using it for the operating system so it starts up faster and then use my 1TB HDD for all other files. can you do that?
 

A:What type of SSD do you need?

Three issues: Cost, size, and speed.
And their long-term reliability is still in question.
Plenty of 60 GB and 80 GB SSD drives available for under $100 now... but above that, you can easily pay $235 to $285 for one that is fast and rugged.
There are price drops nearly every week... while 12 different manufacturers know this is the cash cow. They are all rushing to beat their competition.
After Christmas, there will be 350 GB to 500 GB drives at a reasonable price... Then if they work well, two years from now, you probably will not find many regular hard drives still on the market.
We just received our first SSD drives on the first of July... and so far they are impressive... Quiet, relatively fast, but not nearly as fast as a Good Western Digital, Samsung, Seagate, Fujitsu, or Seagate hard drive... But they are now up to $350 for 250 GB.
Now if we only knew something about their long-term reliability... everybody speculates they will be good for five years... We will need to be convinced.
In the meantime there is nothing wrong with using a Western Digital, Seagate, Fujitsu, Toshiba, or Samsung drive that is 500 GB for $55... or a 750 GB for $80. Just avoid the unreliable TriGem, Hitachi, Maxtor, There are still plenty of problems with the 1TB 1.5TB, and 2 TB hard drives.. mostly with speed and early failures..

I was helping a neighbour reinstall windows xp pro on his older computer which had become unusable because of viruses. While trying to type in the activation code, I found that the z key would not produce any response, so I replaced it with another keyboard and the same things happened, in fact I tried 4 keyboards in all (3 were ps2 and 1 was USB) and they all had the same problem when trying to type the letter z. Any ideas?
 

A:Keyboard will not type z

Hey I really have no hear such problem before. It a really very serious problem. I think the activation code which you are going to enter is incorrect. Not only 'z' key is working what about another keys. I think it will be your installing or CD from which you are installing problem. You have to try it from another CD.

Hello ? Techspot.

I just got a question about dvd media.
There are several dvd type such as following:

BD-R, BD-R DL, BD-RE, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+R DL, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD-R DL, DVD-RW, Mini DVD-R .

I want to know which type of media is the best for "Back-up", "Keep the personal data forever (such as video, files) ?

Also, I want to ask everyone who look at my thread: What type of media are you using ? (I alread list them in the previously).

From
neowing.
 

A:What is the most popular DVD type?

All the ones with BD in the front are actually types of Blue-Ray discs. Single layer Blue-Ray discs hold 25 gigabytes, and double layer 50, so they would be the best option for back up if your drive supports them. Normal DVD R discs only hold 4.7 gigabytes, and dual layer hold 9.4.

I personally use an external hard drive, not optical storage. Most of my pictures, videos, and music are backed up in other places though, like image hosting websites, my netbook, and my music player.

A:Keyboard problem - arrow keys type junk characters

In our experience with the Vaio keyboards, you have reached the time when a replacment NEW keyboard is the best option.
Sometimes, turning the keyboard upside down and giving it a thorough cleaning with difluoroethane gas such as Dust Off (a lot of it) will take care of it... but not often.

A:I need help please, wondering what type of videocard I should purchase for my system

well for your display i recommend an ati 4870 and here is a nice one right in your budget XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB $149.99 Free Shipping it should play wow and about any other game you throw at it on high settings. also make sure if you buy it to go to the XFX website and register the card within 30 days to get there warranty. well now that i look at your power supply you will need to upgrade it before you can do any video card upgrades Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W this one is $79.99 with free shipping but trust me both are of the highest quality and come highly recommended.

The only thing I see is the part number on the battery ms2127/ms2128I even went to my computer and checked in properties and it tell me nothing concerning the make or model. I googled the battery part numbers and it gave me several vendors that use that type battery. Is their any way I can get the model or maker of this laptop. Thanks in advance for the help.

Both show in device manager as AMD and processor type unknown. I just tried the chip in a ASUS motherboard (ASUS M3A78-T) same AMD 790 chipset and loaded the drivers from the ASUS cd and the processor shows up correctly and runs a awful lot faster than the ECS board.

Edit: It's a Socket 754, does anyone know if there are faster CPUs that can be installed in it? I haven't found any.

Yes, you can take that hard drive out of the 2k machine and read it just fine in Vista. What you can't do is take your OS drive from 2k and boot another machine with it, but I don't think that is what you were asking.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

lats say I got a laptop with a intel pentium m centrino, 1.6ghz, 2mb cache, 533 fsb. socket 478.

what can I go up to. on mine though, the cpu has its outermost corner pin gone as well as the one directly inwards diagonally from it. I found other cpus on ebay saying socket 478, but they have the outer corner as well as one next to it gone instead, so where my 2nd pin is missing, this other one has a pin there, so it wouldnt fit on my motherboard.

if I just find one with the same pins missing?

I know there are P4's that are 478 pin, they have a fsb of 800 though, and my memory is only 667, but i have a feeling that the fsb is one of the factors you cant go past what your motherboard is rated for.

thanks
 

A:Besides socket type, what else limits cpu upgrade?

This is a very tricky thing to do, or accomplish. Even if you could find a compatible processor, I doubt if you would see much of an improvement in performance gain. Just max out the total system memory and be happy with that

I bought a used IBM Thinkpad T20 Thinkpad Type 2647-92U from eBay for use this semester on campus. It is in great shape and has a recent edition of Windows XP but an older version of MS Office which does not boot properly.

This computer was a part of a network and keeps trying to connect to it each time Windows loads. It came with a LinkSys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter 2.4 GHz 802.11g card.

The CD is an official copy; clean and has no scratches or nicks. The DVD/CD-ROM will boot other CD's such as music CD's and DVD films and data discs with MS Word files etc on them.

A:Hiper Type M 530w or Antec Smartpower 2.0 450w

Nobody reads yesterdays newspapers.....

The Antec "Smartpower" series is an older, possibly discontinued line of PSU. Antec stands behind their product for sure but these units do suffer problems sometimes from a bad run of capacitors. (As do many other products). If I remember correctly, the 450 watt "Smartpower" carries the worst customer rating of any Antec PSU, (2 eggs).The Hiper PSUs seem to be fairly new in the marketplace. This judging from the low number of reviews at Newegg. I would suggest looking at the Antec Neo Power line, Seasonic, or wait for more info on Hipers offerings.

A:Which is safer? Always On Or Dial-up type access

Your modem router does contain a username and password used to access your account with your ISP, and if you leave the modem router admin password as default it is true that it can be hacked into via the IP address. There are bots that trawl for 'open' IP addresses. If left on 24/7 it increases the window of opportunity for it to be found.
If you power off your modem router it will reconnect when powered on again so I would recommend this is probably the best option. Also change the settings for responding to incoming pings if there is one - deny response is what you want.

There is no serial ATA 2. There are 1.5Gbit SATA and 3.0Gbit SATA (SATA 150 and SATA 300).

For most practical purposes, there is absolutely no difference whether you are using SATA150 or SATA300.

I have an old pc (hp A409.uk) and need more hard drive room, i dont want to replace my old harddrive, but i dont know what type of hard drive i will need and if i can input a slave as i dont have the xp disks.. any help i will be thankful
cheers /Falce
 

A:What type of hard drive i will need?

First, call HP to see if they still have the discs for that model... the phone number is on the www.hp.com tech support site. If so, they will sell them to you for less than $23 to $30 including shipping...
If they don't have the discs any longer (they don't restock when they run out) you can buy an OEM version of Windows XP Home for $64 to $89, then download all the drivers you need from the HP site.
The rest is simple, although it is a pain to get the case apart if you have never done one before.
Then buy a Seagate with a five year warranty from www.tigerdirect.com, www.directron.com, or www.zipzoomfly.com where you can often get a 250 GB drive for under $100, or an 80 GB for $60 or less. Samsung, Fujitsu, and Western Digital are also good but with a lower warranty.

I was just wondering what type of video cards everyone here has....(Participate in poll)
 

A:What type of Video Card do you have?

Ati Radeon 7500 DDR here. I love it except for one thing, the frames I'm getting in OpenGL games are 5 or 6 frames faster then my Voodoo 5 5000. And guess what there driver problem (Doh!). The Direct3D performance is eye-watering though .

i was looking on ebay to get an idea for prices of a new internal hdd and noticed that there are different kinds. im guessing that these are types of connections. im not sure what ones im using but i think they are IDE(the flat, grey cables?). i was just wondering if someone can point me in the right direction.

my motherboard is a gigabyte RZ series 8S661FXMP-RZ.

are any of these types faster than others? or any benefits or anything?

any help is much appreciated.

I can't seem to figure this out. I've used the device manager, but it doesn't say video card specifically. Just audio, video, game controllers. Is this where my video card is located? I'm not all that computer literate so any help you can offer would be much appreciated. I'm just trying to play a DVD on my computer. First i thought i needed a new decoder which i downloaded and now the error message and resulting "support" is saying I have compatibility issues between the decoder and my video card. Where is my video card? Any thoughts?
 

A:Determining Video Card Hardware Type

It's under the display adapters tab in Device Manager. BTW, I think u must need codecs right? Try downloading the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack Full from here. Use any of the first three link on that page to download the installer and when u install it, it will bring u to a page with all these check boxes and stuff. Just take some time to scroll down and check every box u can find (except the Morgan mixer or whatever it's called). Then try running ur DVD.

The old one was called an IBM somthing or other, (the label was ripped).

Because it is DOUBLE DATA RATE (DDR) which means it sends the signal twice so 200mhz X2 = 400mhz

This is a terribly naive question, but how do I find what type of memory works for my laptop? I just bought a Compaq Presario V4000T and want to buy a 1G chip to add to its meager 256 memory. Going through HP, I am given a product number for the memory, but it is not available for purchase through the site. I'd rather buy it through a discount site anyways, but searching for the product number on Newegg comes up with nothing. And their customer service reps cannot offer help.

Can anyone assist? My employer has taken care of all this stuff previously, and this is my first personal laptop. Thus I suffer.

Thanks

A:What Type Hard Drive Do I Buy?

You do not want a 5400rpm drive and you don't need to buy something for outrageously high price from HP.

Go buy the cheapest new IDE (non-SATA) drive from a computer store and it will be twice as fast as your current hard drive.

That said, most likely your speed problems are not caused by the hard disk. You should consider things like disabling unneeded programs, defragmenting the hard disk, buying more RAM..

I found a nice mobo on Newegg that supports both socket 478 and PCI-E but only prescott processors. Now I'm thinking that my processor is a prescott but I want to make sure.

I'm hopeing to get some upgrades for my birthday for my com, the 2 im after mainly is a new cpu an mobo, an im going after a 64bit setup. I was comparing prices an realised that socket 754 (cpu's and mobo's) is a hell of a lot cheaper than 939. Is there a great deal of diference bewtween the 2?
 

A:What type of socket is better, 939 or 754

The bigger number is always going to be better. If you need reasons:

1. 939 has dual channel memory support, 754 is only single channel.
2. 754 doesn't support PCIe, 939 does.
3. This compares most all AMD's processors. You can see that the 939 is superior (unless you are short on cash)

Hi,

I just had a family member buy some ram for their notebook, and for some reason it doesnt like it. The laptop is an Ibm thinkpad 600x. The ram purchased was 256mb pc133 sodimm 32x64-74 144-pin. I dont get why it wouldnt work as the thinkpad uses pc100, but the pc133 should scale back right? Im also not sure, but maybe it has to do with the density, i dont know what the thinkpad uses, nor if the ram purchased was high or low density, anyone have any ideas?

Hi all, I have a PowerColor 9800Pro 256MB

I have taken the card out and inspected it and recorded all numbers on it.
I see that it has two S/N's
I quess one for the Radeon 9800Pro 256 XR98-D3
and one for the PowerColor
is there a way to cross reference the numbers to check what memory is installed?
No product information manual online for the 9800Pro yet.
 

A:Check memory type 9800Pro

Look on the actual RAM itslef.....it will have a pretty long number. What are the last 2 digits?


If it's Samsung, then:

2A = 2.86

30 = 3.0

33 = 3.3

And if it's Infineon:

30 = 3.3

33 = 3.3

Even the Samsung 3.3 is working for nearlyt everyone over stock R9800PRO speeds (With a BIOS Flsah), but the Infineon seems barley able to surpass it's rating, ie 3.3 around 303mhz, 3.3 around 333mhz, but usually a little less than that

Hope you have the Samsung:grinthumb

I have an XP1700 Ive been overclocking for 5 months with no problems until now. CPUID says the bus is still running at 300mhz but the chip speed is back to normal at 1400mhz. Ive never seen anything like this before.
 

A:Unknown CPU type?????

Guess I stumped everyone. Its back to normal now. Im rebuilding this thing with an nForce2 Ultra board this weekend so Im not going to worry about it.
