    [ubuntu] Re: Laptop Questions!

    Vibrations won't really hurt the laptop unless you are trying to break it or, as stated earlier, you drop it. The HDD will break long before other components with the possible exception of the...

    You will need the 64bit version of Ubuntu to address more than 4gb of space.

    Not to be rude, but that is probably the worst answer you could give. He is asking how to fix it, not how this product does.

    [other] Re: Hard Drive Failure?

    Our internet is slow here, it will take a few minutes to check it and find one that will work. Not to mention that that we have people in queue here >.<

    Can you take a picture of the pins headon?...

    [other] Re: Hard Drive Failure?

    Yup, *should*. :)

    The only way to tell if it is a "normal" drive is to take it out of its special case and compare it with ones off of Newegg (or other sites).

    [other] Re: Hard Drive Failure?

    If you want to replace it, any 2.5" laptop hard drive that is IDE *should* work. I would suggest removing the drive to see what type of configuration it is. Go to a website like Newegg that has...

    I think you will receive more assistance if you can give more information than "it doesn't work".

    You getting errors? A certain step not working correctly? etc

    [other] Re: Hard Drive Failure?

    The only issue is if it is an IDE based drive. They use a more dense pin configuration, which means you need a converter to plug into a conventional IDE cable.

    OP: I would suggest checking some...

    [other] Re: Hard Drive Failure?

    If the drive is somewhat functional, you should be able to remove it and install it into a known working desktop. You won't boot from it, but instead just load from the main drive and pull all the...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Laptop(notebook) and mains power question!

    If you are referring to "mains" as the outlet, then yes, it would recharge the battery and power the laptop.

    You can plug it in at any time, it knows how to compensate for it. You won't damage...

    If you are trying to mount it, you can mount it via the UUID, which should not change.

  15. [ubuntu] Re: What monitor do you use and can recommend?

    That is a very generic question. We need more information.

    Price range?
    Size limitations?
    What will you use it for?
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Data recovery with 'Nucleus Data Recovery' s/w

    Just to verify, my last comment was to try a known working drive in the computer. You stated that nothing was successful, the working drive did not work in that computer?
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Data recovery with 'Nucleus Data Recovery' s/w

    That is the issue right there, either there is a setting incorrect in the BIOS preventing it from being detected or the logistics of the drive are bad.

    **Please, never ever put a drive in the...
  18. [other] Re: Is the nvidia abandoning support for Linux?

    I haven't had issues with the newer nVidia cards. I've run the 8800GTS 640 (same g80 core as your GTX) that uses/would use the same exact drivers as the ones you need to; it worked flawlessly.

    If you are talking about putting it directly behind the other, that would hurt airflow and create more noise. It takes special fans (counter rotating fans) to be able to "stack" them. Even if you...

    [other] Re: 2.5" HDD power cycles during testing

    That is one sign of a bad/dying drive. Can you get the S.M.A.R.T. data from it? It should give a clearer answer as to what is going on.
