  1. didn't even know there was a windows driver folder on android phone, never seen one myself. just shows how much i know about android phones. with my phones nearly everything i can disable is disabled, no idea what most of the stuff is for anyway, but i have no background services, no location services, no backup services, nothing to do with google except google games i believe because i needed it for ring tones, etc. etc. so about the only thing they are used for is sms and phone calls, battery does last a week or more on standby though before i need to charge them. does this link work for you nigsy? :- http://s1176.photobucket.com/user/jp52681/media/snapshot14_zpsjtma07e8.png.html
  2. practice and trial and error usually, i've been known to change the way i've routed a single cable at least 4 times before i was happy. don't look at the right side of the case behind motherboard though because then you'll see a mess of cables. like brown hornet says modular psu's make a big difference along with case design, usually i end up stowing most cables in a 3.5 drive bay when they can't be hidden behind the motherboard tray. main thing your looking for is a nice clean area for air to flow from front to back in area of motherboard, so a lot of cables tied up at the bottom don't really harm even though it may not look as nice and clean as bh's build.
  3. sorry tomk, been staring at my post making changes and refining it , so it read better and made more sense to me so you may have missed those changes along with me missing your 3 reply's. yes linux will just talk to an android phone when connected by cable and you just open your file manager software and drag and drop files between the 2. guess only justin can verify if he has a windows or android phone, must admit from everything i've also been able to find out verizon only do that phone with an android os though. should add there are 2 or 3 modes used to communicate with a pc, mtp, ptp and usb mass storage mode, by default android uses the mtp mode i think, can't actually find the settings on my phone at the moment, probably because i haven't activated developer mode since i did a factory reset ages ago. more about such things in following links. http://www.howtogeek.com/192732/android-usb-connections-explained-mtp-ptp-and-usb-mass-storage/ http://www.device-recovery.com/how-to-connect-android-devices-to-pc-with-usb-mass-storage-mode http://www.howtogeek.com/165017/how-to-share-data-and-files-between-your-android-phone-and-pc/
  4. things must be different over there then because i've never seen a dll or .exe file on any android phone (not that i've seen loads, probably 5 or 6 connected to about 3 or 4 different networks), ok tools directory could be on an android phone because the main folder seems to be named differently depending on manufacturer. so as far as i'm aware a dll and .exe files are useless and won't run on an android phone, well probably not unless you run them with some emulation software running on android first, also an .ini file is usually used for windows configuration, andoid uses .xml files i believe. folders are usually something like, phone name/identity main folder (named internalstorage on 1 and store_xxxxxx on another android smart phone i have.) then main folders inside that are alarms, android, dcim, download,movies,music,notifications, pictures, podcast, ringtones depending on what things installed on the phone you may have extra folders like amazon etc. files outside folders are either .xml or .txt depending on what's installed on phones by manufactures/apps on my 2 phones, one's a sony and the other is a motog. should add i understand from what you posted that the windows files seem to be used for the usb driver/setup and are stored on the phone so a windows pc can communicate with it but then again i don't understand how the windows pc can access those files and that usb driver if it needs them to communicate with the android phone in the first place. is that typical verizon logic?
  5. not according to his screenshot it isn't. on an android phone when connected to a pc you'd get completely different list of folders/files.
  6. windows phones menu look like this :- https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=windows+phone+menu&biw=1189&bih=808&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMI6Ji2kaHKyAIVgj8UCh2tvQMb android phones menu looks like this :- https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=android+phone+menu&biw=1189&bih=808&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMIzZ2qhKHKyAIVxtYUCh3u6ACG should be easy enough to know if you have a windows or android operating system on your phone. windows you'll need to sign up for a windows account and get your apps from the windows store. android you'll need to sign up for a google, amazon or samsung account and get your apps from their stores.
  7. i guess that means you have a windows smart phone. not an android, so windows voip apps are what you'll need to be looking at. think most of the voip apps are made to work on all the different operating systems.
  8. never tried myself, i put £10 of credit on my phone and that lasts about a year over here in the uk. what i'd try is to restrict back ground data to wifi only and then install and only use some voip software for making calls. see if this helps :- http://android.wonderhowto.com/how-to/top-5-android-voip-apps-for-making-free-phone-calls-0162260/
  9. no, unless you can get it to work again of course.
  10. if it was always on charge the problem shouldn't be the battery running flat, unless the usb port is broken so it no longer charges. no idea what best buy will do but i wouldn't accept anything but either an exchange for a new one or my money back so i could buy a different model tablet, no idea what other tablets are in that price range over there but think this might be another choice if you want windows :- http://www.amazon.com/HP-Stream-Windows-Includes-Personal/dp/B00NSHLVD2/?tag=bestlaptop096-20 personally though i think you may be better doubling the price range and see what tablets are available then. i'd probably look at getting one of these :- https://tablet.ninja/finding-the-best-tablets-under-200/ maybe this :- http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2490181,00.asp
  11. usually when a tablet is "dead" it's because the battery ran to low and i think putting it on a trickle charge (eg. from pc usb port) for 12hrs or so and then just holding in the power button for 20/30 seconds will bring it back to life if my memory serves.
  12. when it's slow like that, try turning off the wifi of your router and see if things improve, of course you need to be connected by wire to the router on the pc your testing, if things are back to normal then this would suggest you have some wireless device that is causing your slowdown problems. i'm surprised you haven't been able to find and fix the problem by now though.

  14. personally even for low budget systems i think i'd be looking at the intel pentium g series of cpu's, ok your not going to beat the craig list deal you've found but for new then something like this is what i'd be looking at. :- http://www.frys.com/product/7869489?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG that cpu compared to the 5600k you found on craigs list. :- http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Pentium-G3220-vs-AMD-A8-5600K
  15. if they changed the link in your post, then i'd suspect a serious security breach in the forum, as in they have admin permissions.
  16. stuff that he shouldn't be so childish in the first place.
  17. sorry but if it's your brother who is the bill payer in the house and is in charge of the router then there is nothing we can do to help you. how he did it though is probably by setting mac address filtering in the router settings. routers do have reset buttons though.
  18. sorry but there won't be a degauss mode on a laptops lcd monitor, degauss was for crt monitors and cathode ray tubes, lcd monitors work in a completely different way. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathode_ray_tube#Degaussing so no idea what screen problem Kim Marie Anne Ureña has but degaussing certainly won't be the fix for it. if you wish to keep trying to find a solution for your monitor, it would be best to start a new topic in the user to user forum here: http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?/forum/3-user-to-user-help/
  19. that answer is for your vista pc with the problem. if you think skype caused the problem in the first place and you've uninstalled it now, i'd run a windows update and then try installing skype again from here and see if the problem goes away. :- http://www.skype.com/en/download-skype/skype-for-computer/
  20. probably as long as the restore point is earlier than when the problem started, i think a windows update is the cause so it might also be worth manually installing updates 1 at a time after the restore until you find the one that causes the problem uninstall that update and hide it so it doesn't keep getting installed again.
  21. very rarely visit that part of the forum. glad it's not a forced holiday and hope he changes his mind at some point and starts posting again, i do miss him.
