Re: HP Color Laserjet 4500N

Why do these printers always get toner everywhere? Everything inside is covered in magenta toner.

The question is, why do HP printers in general always make messes of themselves? I scavenged a...

Re: NEC MultiSync E1100+ display issue

Nobody? I've got the spare monitor hooked up for the time being, but I'd like to get the NEC working again if I can.

Re: Lifetime of RAM connectors

If you do have issues, try going over the traces with a soft pencil eraser. It's helped me out a couple times.

Re: Help with antec trio 550w

Did the J look like a J combined with a P? They could well be JPce TUR series. Not the best, but not bad. Enermax uses 'em, too.

Re: Max ram for Compaq Presario s4020wm?

My KM266Pro board, a Biostar, claims to support 2x1GB. However, that's not the same chipset, really, it's some variant of the KM333 remarked. So I doubt this helps...sorry.

Re: Your opinion for the minimum speed to define broadband

As far as I'm concerned, it's "fast enough to load a low-quality video faster than you can watch it". I have 1.5 Mbit down, and it's a bit above that - I think 1 Mbit is probably a sufficient...

Re: What motherboard brands have good caps?

Biostar's doing well nowadays then? My M7VIG-400 (KM266Pro) has all OST and G-Luxon. Good to hear that they've improved!

Intel boards in general, that I've seen, have had good caps, aside from the...

Re: Is there a list of Socket A motherboards which are immune from the plague

If you end up going socket A still, the older Epox boards had cap issues, but the newer ones, including later Socket A boards, are fine. My 8RDA3I Pro, for example, is all Rubycon and Panasonic.

Re: LCD or CRT

All CRT. I like having monitors I can drop and not worry about it.

I've also spent a grand total of $0.00 USD for monitors in my lifetime, and gotten several decent 17"s and a good 19" out of it,...
