Hi, just wondering why the site keeps placing links where they arent supposed to be? i press page compatability button on IE but it does nothing...Is it a bug that is known to the admins at the moment? things are ALWAYS out of place, and when clicking links the wrong option gets selected. Its getting really annoying honestly. Net specs: IE9 WIN7 64 BIT

Some of the usb micro cables i have for my solar cell battery don't work, but when i plug in the usb female adapter and use the usb cable i use for my computer, my droid x charges just fine. being the way i am, i had to know what was going on, so i got an old bluetooth headset and desoldered the female usb micro plug and put some leads on it. then i plugged the cables in and tested continuity and i found out that the cable that works had pin 4 connected to pin 5, but the one that didn't work had no internal connections at all. i find the position the cable sticks out when it's plugged in kind of annoying, so i might be able to kill 2 birds with one stone by making a small extender with pins 4 and 5 connected and just leaving the extender connected all the time or would my dx detect that pin 4 and 5 are connected without a voltage and cause problems? i would really like to just make this, plug it in, and not have to worry about cables not working or getting in the way, but i don't want to test this on my $600 device when i don't know what might go wrong.

Will an older motherboard which, according to specs, can run DIMM memory of 400 or less, still work with DIMM 800 or so?
DIMM 400 is obsolete, so it not easily available in strips of 1G or higher. But 512 MB of DIMM 400 is almost the same price as a more modern memory strip of 2G! Since the pin-out is the same, I was wandering if the more recent kind, like DIMM 800 would still work, but perhaps at a slower rate. If I would try, would it just not work, or would it fry (or fry the motherboard)?

OK, noob question, but google holds no clear answers (I just get lots of "convert iTunes to MP3" hits). I'm thinking of buying a music player with a much larger memory than the current 2G. There are iPod-dedicated birdwatching products that tempt me towards Apple products, but I have hundreds of MP3 tracks. If I get an iWhatever, will it play ordinary MP3 tracks "as is", will I have to convert them to iTunes, or will I have to start from scratch?

Hi everyone, I was selected for the IoT invitational of Intel + Instructables and I as I was going to start testing the sensors I received, I noticed that there was no base shield for the sensor connections included in the package. I suppose the rest of the chosen participants didn't receive the base shield as well. Since the local stores near me do not have that shield (http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/Grove_-_Base_shield_v2) I wonder if other Arduino compatible sensor shields can be used on the Intel Edison expansion board, since it operates at 1.8V and I don't want to fry it. Thanks in advance!

So, I want to build a computer, and this would be my first computer. I don't know how to tell how parts are compatible with other parts, and which parts are good. I just want a computer that can surf the web, and support gaming with little to no lag, or freezing. To keep cost down, I don't exactly need to be able to play newer games that can over heat a six month old gaming computer in seconds. I want to keep this project under $400, or at $450 at most. Some games I would like to run is Halo 1 and 2, counter strike, and perhaps WoW. Any, and all help will be appreciated, Thank you.

OK, I have a Dell XPS M1710 that has an overheating issue. I have done the oven re-flow around six times and it works, but it will eventually keep dying. I'm afraid that the card has finally come to its end but I'm willing to give it one last attempt. I'm going to attempt to convert the laptop into somewhat of a desktop. I'm going to get a large heatsink for the CPU and hopefully find one that will fit the graphics card. I'm hoping that with better cooling the graphics card will stop going out on me. I have found a heatsink that i believe will work for the CPU but I'm not exactly sure I can find one for the graphics card. I'm not even sure if it's possible. If it is, that would be awesome if anyone could find one. If there isn't, however, does anyone know another option? Maybe, 3D print an adapter and connect it to a heatsink and then throw a fan on it? Any suggestions? The problem I have is that the screw holes on the graphics card are in a rectangle rather than a square. I'll try to provide pictures to show what I mean. If you need anymore I can get those to you.

The plug for my HP laptop's AC/DC adapter has a loose connection, so I am using my old Compaq adapter. All the specs are the same; 65w, 18.5v, and 3.5a, except for the input amps, 1.7 on one and 1.6 on the other (probably just because of efficiency). The plugs are the same. I just wanted to double check. Is it okay to use the Compaq(actually says HP on it) instead of the HP one? Thanks in advance! AI
