Is it possible for two laptops to transfer information to each if they are close to each other but not connected? 

by on June 21, 2013

Q: My friend and I had an argument about this. He said if you leave a laptop next to another laptop (or a hard drive next to another hard drive) that they could potentially transfer some data from one to the other even if they are not connected to each other or even turned on. I said that is impossible, but I couldn’t explain it because I really don’t know how data transfer works. I can’t prove it. Can someone explain how and why this is impossible so he can shut up about it?

 
 

Should I go with an Asus or an Alienware laptop for gaming? 

by on June 18, 2013

Q: g’day i am looking to upgrade my laptop to new a new gaming one. But seeing though that there is so many to choose from now, i would like a little bit of help (as i am computer illiterate LOL)

i am currently looking at the Alienware 17mx, the asus G75, the msi GE70/GT70 and also a new brand on the market the Venom blackbook 17 B0218.

Now i do understand u get what you pay for, but that is where i am getting a little bit lost, i like the alienware because of the look and how u can customize it…
the asus because that is what i am currently on, even though it is 4 years old she is still going on strong,
the msi, just because to me that is the cheaper option but would that get me through the long run?
And now this Venom brand, i don’t know much about it, and i think that’s what i am afraid of.

Also i would be buying 2, as my girlfriend has just found her knack for online gaming and would like to join me haha!!

thanks for your help cheers!!

 
 

How come I cannot get on the Internet with my laptop after dropping it? 

by on June 17, 2013

Q: I dropped my laptop last night it is a GE620 and when I logged onto it today it was unable to access the Internet wired or wireless. I opened up the back and saw no problems in the hardware and don’t see any problems in the device manager. I’m uncertain what steps to take now. I have reinstalled the S Bar program and have tried all the shortcuts and unless I’m a total idiot there is no switch on this laptop.

How do I fix the bult in webcam on my laptop? 

by on June 10, 2013

Q: My laptop’s built in webcam no longer is working, how can I fix it?

Details:
computer-
HP G60 Notebook PC F.32
hardward id-
Vid_04f2&Pid_b091&Rev_1324&MI_00

may be irrelevant since my laptop has to the best of my knowledge always said this, but in device manager, it’s listed as usb video device, though i think it should say webcam-101 or something based on my google results.

also, i downgraded from vista to xp.. so anything that pertains only to vista and above won’t help me.

this problem has existed for a few weeks, maybe a month or two tops.

device manager says it’s working properly. the light don’t turn on so i’m assuming my cam wasn’t hacked [although i see no reason why it would be, i don't chat online and i'm not a cute girl, or a girl at all lol]. when i try to use it via manycam for example it says: please make sure this device is not currently used in another application. but the webcam has always lit up when it was in use.

also, is it possible it may be unplugged or broken? i’m uncertain as the fact that it says it’s working properly :P

 
 

Is there anyway I can increase the resolution on my laptop? 

by on June 10, 2013

Q: I want to modify my laptop by giving it a higher resolution screen. But the maximum supported resolution is given as 1366 x768. What needs to be changed for a 1080p screen? The motherboard? The Intel processor ? The drivers? What would be the total cost (including techie fees)?
