    I have this laptop that I didnt intend to use for gaming but my current home pc isnt working, possible power unit issue but cant be sure till I have someone check it. I wanted to play this one game that people have recently gotten back into, despite the bad reviews. It looks so good that I want to buy it but one thing stops me, the requirements for the game. However I cannot be certain that my computer cant run it, I have tried sites to check but both say I cannot, and the reason i dont trust them is because they say another game I cannot run even though it runs just fine. Right now its on sale and tempted to buy it but I dont know if i can run it. I know I can buy it and keep till I can run it but I dont know if i should. I cannot afford to buy a PC that can run it and wit hout my current one be powered up i cannot check. Here are my laptop specs with the exception of my RAM as I upgraded it: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c0... The game it said it cannot run is https://www.pathofexile.com/game The game I want is: https://www.playatlas.com/

  • How can I get over this "hurdle" of buying a new RAM for starters?

    I have talked about buying a new RAM to improve my laptop even though I may need more than just RAM. I have a few problems: 1) I fear its not worth the purchase of upgrading a 2gb RAM 800mhz ---> 4gb 1600 mhz. Like I said, installing RAM is probably not gonna do much, at least thats what I think.

Some have suggested a SSD but I like to think one thing at a time unless I come into some cash. 2) I have never installed anything within a computer, let alone a laptop. I have a guide on how to remove and replace it but I fear Ill mess it up. My brother once installed a 1TB Hardrive to our old computer but I hate to bother him with this since hes gotten busy with his new job. Plus having smeone do it might cost more than the RAM it self. What can I do? 3) Im doing this for a game but I fear that for the overall purpose, it wont do much.

  • Should I switch from Verizon to t-mobile?

    Ok, I am in a plan with my parents and for the most part, being with Verizon has been great. Unfortunately in terms of data, it sucks. We are paying $125 per month for 3 phones with the minimum data plan. What's worse is for some reason we are paying about $25 extra and verizon says it's due to late fees and a feature I have now opted out of. I have seen what t-mobile offers in terms of data and it is great. However I have noticed and seen in comparison sites that t-mobile may not have the best coverages. My mom and I see the cost as important, I also see the data as an important part, both say t-mobile but the service is what I'm worried about, what if we give up service for cost and data? I tell myself that switching is for the best but I keep doubting if we should switch. Another thing, my mom has a phone exclusive to Verizon and she does not want a smartphone, just a basic phone with physical keyboard. My dad and I have phones that we hope we can unlock. What should we do?

I noticed that there's something else about them, they have 800 mhz each. However I asked if my laptop can have an increase in RAM, meaning removing existing RAM and placing new RAM. One confirmed and recommended some RAM. Im leaning to start with 4gb with 1600mhz, replacing 2gb 800mhz. Now I don't know as much about computers to know the tech stuff which is why I need help in this decision. At 1st it was about gaming but I want to know if it can improve my laptop in general. I don't have the money to get a better laptop or desktop. So, can this improve my laptop performance or do I need more to improve, not just RAM/get a better laptop?

Now I dont want regrets, not getting a bigger tv for $70 more, $120 for smart tv, or regrets of getting a bigger tv and spending more money.

Someone to call a girlfriend or wife, someone to call son or daughter, I mean the happiness of a good life with a family. I am not the best kind of person which is one reason I dont go out and date, I dont want to bring someone into my crappy life, no job though looking, still live at home. That got me wondering if I do deserve that kind of happiness.

    I have had this tv for years now and it is beginning to fail. My mom says we should repair it instead of buying and if it costs too much to repair then wait till I get a job. My only issue is if it was just an inconvenience in terms of its problem than I could wait but a few weeks ago the display would flicker and at times go completely went black. In terms of the job situation I have been applying for jobs but none have even responding or saying no. One said No soon after I submitted application. I have no experience nor special skills unless you count computer skills but I fear if I list that I might get something outside my skill level. So I think it as, do I have enough money left over to buy the tv and still have enough to help around the house, like if my mom needs a loan till she gets her check which I always do. I have twice the amount needed to pay for the tv so I am good on buying it and have enough. Problem is I am racking my head around listening my mom about get a job 1st then buy. What should I do?

    We have a 2 year old terrier, or that's how old he was when we got him last year. My cousin has a husky but since she is a big dog she tends to play rough, especially when it comes to a small dog. So we thought of getting a companion. A few weeks ago we got a message from my cousin of puppies being given away so my mom thought this is what she is looking for. Problem is now it has had the opposite effect, usually he gets up to go to the porch for some sun (enclosed porch) but today, 3rd day since the puppy came home he is as depressed or lazy or worse. At times she gets on my nerves as she demands attention but we can deal with it for our dog but if she is having a negative effect on him then I am worrying. She is so playful but he is not, recently as least. Every morning I would go to him and he would play with me but recently he is not so overjoyed in the morning. Sometimes he would go and jump on my bed to wake me up or just to lay there but he hasn't since we got the puppy. We have never had a dog feel like this and that's coming from we having a dog go through loosing a companion and not being mad or depressed when we got a new one. What should we do?

  • Will CDs and DVDs work in a blue ray player?

    So I bought a DVD player because my laptop didn't come with one (they are trying to eliminate CDs all together), the movies I rent only come in DVD form and we usually don't buy blue ray. I was then wondering if I buy a Blu-ray player so I can play Blu-ray and still play CDs and DVDs. Thing is i don't know if its backward compatible.

    So for the longest I made a mistake of relying one job, poll worker. While I was paid about $140 but it was a rare job one that was a one day 17 hours job consisting of training at any day that they were hosting, hours were open and we closed, and setting up, packing up, and counting all the ballots, and of course our 1 hour lunch. In my narrow-minded view I never applied for a job until recently but now I am panicking. There are many things I want to buy, some needed while others are wanted and I want to pitch in financially. I once paid for a product my mom wanted but didn't have the money for it at the time and I liked that feeling. So I had applied for a job at the airport where my mom, dad, brothers, cousin, and uncle all work or worked at in different positions. Problem is I went to the interview and I may have done some interview no-nos and didn't get the job. I have applied for other jobs, one I was rejected without an interview (questionnaire and resume) while the others I am waiting on. Limitations include my not ability to drive, lack of experience and lack of confidence. I don't know what to do after I have sent in my application. So how do I cope after sending my application and unknown number of days that I am rejected or accepted if I'm told at all? There's a guy we know who fixed our computer many times and said he'd help get me into a job that is what I'm interested in but cant right now which opened up this job search and the stress with it.
