 Forum: Computers, Math, Science, and Technology   Topic: "HD AUDIO"... front panel headphone jack is dead?

The other day I tried to use the headphone jack on one of the computers I built a year ago. (Never had reason to until now.) It cut the speakers off, sure, but it didn't work. No sound thru the headphones. The module the headphone and microphone jack is in, along with two USB ports, sits in what wou...

When the Creators Update was made available, I stupidly went ahead and downloaded/installed it. On three of my computers it immediately began scrambling my desktop icons. If I tried to move one back to where it belonged, a bunch of others would move too. I turned those machines back to the previous ...

I've used HD Clone in the past, but last time I tried to use it there was some type of problem (don't recall the details) and I ended up using something else. I'm going from a 1TB drive to a 2. I'd like to be able to clone the existing drive rather than reinstall Windows and then copy all my files a...

...I mean, everyone is lying... Uh... Apparently not everyone lies, since you say you don't. Do you think you're the only one who doesn't. I was raised to think of lying as TOTALLY unacceptable, so I don't lie. (If someone's got no business knowing something, I won't lie to them about it, I just wo...

I'm looking to get a bigger hard drive for my computer, and there's an $8 difference between Western Digital "Blue" and Western Digital "Mainstream". (There's also a matter of availability.) I'd never even heard of "Mainstream" until I was looking at the Best Buy websit...

So first post!... I finally got a direct answer from my family about having Asperger's. I was diagnosed more than a decade ago, but was never told that i was considered to have an ASD until a few years ago, and was only told I had an official diagnosis until today. I was wondering, has a anyone exp...

Doctors can be confusing. I saw a number of psychologists back when my parents were trying to "figure out what was wrong with me" (their words) between the ages of 7-12. The main and final one said that I had symptoms of AS but he hated labeling people. One psych said that I was not "...

Up until recently I had no reason to use my printer with the second computer I built, but over the last few days decided to get it a little more in step with my other machines, and installed the printer's software. Under "Devices and Printers", there was now a generic looking printer icon,...

Your psychologist could diagnose you, of course. But, he might recuse himself simply because diagnosing autism isn't something he has studied or practiced. I'm just totally messed up right now, tho', because for maybe two years now I've had a name to call this by, the name I suspected was right for...

A good while back the doctor who'd been prescribing anti-depressants for me insisted I start seeing a therapist. The psychologist I started seeing picked up on autism by the end of the second appointment (and was REALLY interested that I'd suspected it since I was in my 20s.) Next appointment, told ...

I have a standard 64 bit version of Windows 10 on a hard drive, but want to run an older program that can only run on 32 bit. The only solution I see is to have two versions of Windows 10 on the hard drive. A small partition with its own drive letter running the 32 bit version, and the rest being th...

I didn't do ANY updating except to allow the OS to upgrade...or downgrade. I did some research and found I'm not the only one to have the shortcuts start moving around, tho'. (Oh...today I found it'd happened on yet another of my machines.) A Microsoft "community forum" had two or three pe...

I updated all my machines. Three of them went crazy. Stupid Windows went and moved all my desktop shortcuts around, and in two cases wouldn't let me move them back. I'd go to move one shortcut, and it'd move a bunch of others as I did it. It's been a day, and I think things are getting more stable a...

I've also been delayed and "younger than I really am" all my life. I've just suddenly remembered my mother commenting on that in my presence when I was a kid, saying that I wasn't as "old" as other kids my age. From what's been said by people here and elsewhere, it goes with bein...
