How to install a 500W graphics card on a 300W computer?

in

I want to install a 500W graphics card but I have a 300W computer. My model is dx4860. Would getting a 500W power supply and installing it be enough? What steps would I have to do to be able to install the graphics card?

Answer: 
No, a 500W power supply would not be enough. While it would power your graphics card, it would not be able to power the rest of the computer.Your best bet is to find a web site that estimates the current power needs of your computer without that graphics card such as http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp and then add that graphics card in. Also, a good rule of thumb is have the power supply have an output at least 10% over what your computer is consuming.Sure, you don't need to, but it will help your power supply last longer.

How to connect a computer cases built in USB ports to a motherboard?

in

I have bought a computer case with USB ports built in and don't know how to connect them to the mother board. Thanks in advance.

Answer: 
Your motherboard should have one or more 9-pin USB connectors similar to the yellow ones here: http://i.imgur.com/oENxy.jpg. If you're having trouble finding them, most manuals have a layout with all the connectors labeled. Your case should have a wire from the USB ports that looks similar to this: http://i.imgur.com/I5ggm.jpg Connect the two and you're set : )

How to bind two actions to a single mouse button?

in

I've heard about pro-gamers who bind two actions to a single mouse button. 1 action when the button is pressed regularly, and another when combined with a keyboard key (ie holding shift). How do you do this? I have a Deathadder 3.5g Black if that helps.

Answer: 
That would be with a gaming mouse or joystick that has that function built into the software for the mouse.

How to format hardrive and install linux ubuntu from scratch?

in

I have got XP pro on my desktop computer and i am looking to format my hardrive and install linux ubuntu from a CD and i will also have to install the driver CD so could someone show me how to do this please.

Answer: 
Place the CD into the Disc tray and reboot the computer. Use the Select Boot Menu (usually F11 or F12) or set the Bios to boot from the CD drive first, HDD second. Boot into the Ubuntu Live session (in other words, the computer will boot into Ubuntu via the CD). Test it out and see if everything [that is the hardware] is working fine. On the desktop, there will be an "install to HDD" icon. Through the installer, you will be able to format and do all of that. You will be give the option to also install side by side with windows if you would like to keep Windows (note, you will need enough HDD space for Ubuntu to properly shrink the Windows Partition for Ubuntu to install if you decide to install side by side).

How to recover photos from previously corrupted external drive?

I have a previously corrupted external drive and fortunately, I was able to fix it through chkdsk. But when I open one subfolder in the "pictures" folder, it was empty eventhough I did not erase the files. Can somebody help me? Please. those pictures are of great importance. Thanks in advance!

Answer: 
Don't worry! All your files are still stored on the hard drive.They're just invisible or inaccessible. You can recover them with data recovery software. I had managed to retrieve files from crashed hard drive. I used this program called Tenorshare Data Recovery and it worked well.Anyway,you can download it and scan your hard drive to search for lost data.It will show you thumbnails for your pictures. Get it from http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=Tenorshare+Data+Recovery Hope I helped.
