  • How do I connect my external hard drive to my laptop?

    Best answer: Buy an external case so that the drive can be connected to USB.
    That drive is a 2.5" form factor so no extra power adapter is needed

    So my PC is kinda running like garbage compared to my specs. The image sent is from Unigine benchmark and I was given a score of 1493, I compared this to others test online and the person highlighted has a system slightly worse than mine due to my CPU being just a little bit better than his and yet the score is such a massive difference. I have been for the past week reinstalling my drivers and nothing. Games like GTA 5 were I used to get over 80 fps i'm only sitting around 60 dropping under from time to time. Even games like CSGO Im only around 150 fps were I used to get around 200 to 300. Nothing has changed besides getting a new hard drive but I dont believe that that will cause my FPS to drop so much and my overall pc performance to drop. The only thing that is on that hard drive is my games not windows or even that benchmark program

  • Hard Drive at 100 percent?

    So in my PC I have a total of three hard drives. One for windows and programs, One that is just random stuff and one for games.

    So in my PC I have a total of three hard drives. One for windows and programs, One that is just random stuff and one for games. So I have all of my games on that one hard drive called F and for the past week or two I have been having my PC lag really hard in most of my games like GTA 5 which is not going over 25 FPS at one point and other games like CSGO L.A noire and PUBG. I thought it was the new windows update since a lot of people were having simular problems as me but I reverted back one update and the problem is still there. After playing for maybe like 10 mins my PC will go into a lag state were the FPS will be stuck around 10 to 30 FPS and even before that my games will be running at garbage fps. When the game starts to lag I get a static noise every no an again and the only fix was to tabe out and back into the game maybe once or sometimes 3 to 4 times. I found out under task manager that my hard drive F is at 100 percent when ever a game is running. This hard drive was given to me and I dont really know the history behind it at first it seemed fine 1tb hard drive that had nothing on it I fragmented it and formatted it and then started using it I have around 300 GB left. The usage will drop to 0 when I tab out but will spike back Don't worry temps are 100 percent fine... Do i just need to get a new hard drive or could this be somehting else Specs: i5 7500 GTX 1060 1tb: main 1tb: games 250gb: stuff 750watt 16GB DDR4

  • What is a device driver?

    Best answer: It is software written for your computer and its operating system that allows your computer to interface with a particular piece of hardware (i.e., device). For example, you may have bought a printer. In order for your computer to be able to talk to the printer, it needs to have a program that tells it how to talk to that printer and what functions that printer has that the computer can tell it to do. That program is called a "device driver." It's not a program you open but instead is a program that runs by itself behind the scenes.

  • Is it possible to check if your hard drive is defective or 'going bad" by 'checking disc'? how do you do it?

    Best answer: A blue screen indicates that there was a hardware issue that caused that hardware to stop, therefore shut windows down. It may not be the hard drive it could be the CPU, the integrated graphics, a memory stick (RAM), a peripheral card like an additional sound or video card, or the motherboard it self causing the issue. It could be anything unless it's specifically saying it was the hard drive that stopped and if a hard drive stopped and caused a blue screen it's the drive windows is installed on. Hard drives don't run until and unless you call upon them by opening them or a file on them so a hard drive that isn't the one windows is installed on will not cause a blue screen. The only way a hard drive that is not the primary windows drive can do that is if you're running a game or program or something that's on that drive and it stops.

    Running check disk is a good thing to do to investigate the problem. Check Disk is a windows utility, it's there. You just have to run it.

    In windows 8 and 10 right-click on the Drive in File Explorer that you want to check and select Properties. Then click on the Tools tab at the top of that window. In the Error Checking section click on the Check button. This option will check the drive for file system errors. If the system detects that there are errors, you will be asked to check the disk and windows will attempt repairing it. You also have the option to run CheckDisk the next time you restart or boot it up. This is a good idea to do because it will do a more thorough and lower level scan because it performs the scan before windows starts - nothing on the drive is being used so it scans more of the drive than it will while windows is running.

  • What are signs that your hard drive disc is about to stop working?

    Best answer: Blue screen is usually a software error. If your hard drive is dying, your BIOS will scream at you when you power up the computer. This will occur before any OS is booted at all.

    Best answer: Blue screen is usually a software error.

    If your hard drive is dying, your BIOS will scream at you when you power up the computer. This will occur before any OS is booted at all. If you choose to continue to boot the OS, you could end up with a blue screen crash because the hard drive is failing - or has failed completely.

    Generally if you do get a message from your PC that your hard drive is sending errors, it pretty much means drive failure is imminent and you should immediately replace the drive.
