Has anyone had any experience with Linux We are getting interested but dont know just how to get started. We understand you can run two systems but would like to format a hard drive and try Linux on an older machine. Would appreciate which kernel to down load. We would like to use it for Email, web browsing, word processing, and pictures. Any comments would be appreciated. Ross

Computer Problem! Answered

I was using my computer and then all of a sudden it turned off! Now won't switch on again. I have hoovered it out and I let it cool down. When I switch it on The cooling fan for the processor jumps but doesn't move, and a red light under the power symbol flashes and there is no signal being sent to the monitor. Also the fan for the psu does not move.  Nothing on the mother board looks like it has burned out. I was only running the internet. I am now using an old laptop All comments welcome Oscar

Building a computer.

Hi :DMy old computer has died and I'm planning on just ripping it apart and salvaging bits and bobs for a new build, Here's my plan:CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo Desktop Processor E8600Graphics card: GeForce 9800 GX2RAM: 4GBWiFi card: some brand, i haven't researched yetCase: Jeantech JNR-105 Luna ATXMy main problem is i cant decide on which Motherboard... do motherboards come with their own power supply? I think a 500 watt power supply would be more suited than the current 300 watt. which leads me to another question, can people recommend cooling options? (not water cooling though, i dont trust it enough to have hundreds of pounds of hardware surrounded by water)

Floppy Disk Converter?

How does a Floppy Disk Converter work? Heres my problem. I have recently bought a laptop which has Windows Vista. I have an old desktop computer with Windows 98SE. I have no floppy disk drive on the laptop. I want to save the material on the floppy disks onto a USB memory stick. I bought a USB that works for Windows 98SE only to find that you need to download drivers for it from the Internet before it will work. So I plugged my Broadband connection (which is from Vodafone) into the desktop computer to get an Internet connection only to find that the Internet is too new a version for Windows 98SE to read so therefore I cant download the drivers. Also I thought I could save to CD and then put the CD into the laptop to save them to the hard disk but the desktop only has a CD-ROM whereas the laptop has CD-RW. So that wont work either. So I was wondering if a Floppy Disk Converter would be the answer to my problem. Like do you just insert a floppy and a USB into the Floppy Disk Converter and transfer the files. Do you need to connect it to a computer. Sorry for rambling on but I have so many questions about it and I really want to know before I go out and buy one only to find that it is also useless to me. Thanks

Efficiency of DIY bitcoin miners?

First, I would like to say that I do not know if this is the place for this question, but: I have just heard of bitcoin mining and started to look into it.  I have learned that pretty much the only way it is plausible is through the use of a machine dedicated to mining the bitcoins, not through using gpu's anymore apparently.  But I have seen that these machines are expensive, so naturally I would want to build a DIY one if I started this.  But are these dedicated miners even efficient? And what if they don't have the top of the line components?  I tried to look this up myself but I don't really understand the hash rates of these machines so I don't know what is considered an efficient rate.  And, in my current situation, I don't pay for electricity or internet so now would be an optimal time to do so and maximize profitability.  So, do these dedicated miners work efficiently enough to make it worth while to build/buy one? Especially if I don't pay for electricity or internet?

I have two old computers with some fans and L.E.D's, and I was just wanting to find something to use these things for. Everything I find is either about restoring the computer or just using the shell of one. I want something like robots lights or something like that. Oh, and sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

My sweet computer

Ok, so i basically just set up my first pc. I actually built it from a dell dimension 4700. It now has a new motherboard which is much better. Heres the specs: Operating System: MS Windows XP Home 32-bit SP3 CPU: Intel Pentium 4 530 Prescott 90nm Technology Ram: 2.5GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 333MHz (5-5-5-15) Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5KPL-AM EPU (Socket 775) 25 °C Graphics: DELL E173FP @ 1024x768 Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family Hard Drvie: 78GB Seagate ST380013AS (SATA) 28 °C Optical Driver: CD_ROM Drive Audio: VIA High Definition Audio Power Supply: The crappy 400W dell one from the dimension 4700. I really need to upgrade the power supply, cooling, hard drive, and maybe ram. Cooling especially, because i can overclock and i really want to. If i do a 5% OC, i stay at about 60 °C when playing games or stress testing. A bit more is pretty normal. Thats kinda hot though... So, thats why i want to upgrade the cooling. And it would help to upgrade the power supply a ton. And im going to need to with all the stuff i want to add. Anyway, heres some pics:
