    The OS does a pretty good job of managing the drive in the...

    Re: 500GB External HDD connected to TV USB

    It probably won't work. Most likely it'll just not have enough power to function, but if the usb port is poorly designed it could potentially damage the port.

    Re: RAM upgrade?

    Could also be a software issue slowing things down. Browser tabs should switch pretty quickly unless you have really a lot of them open. I have had 20 or more open at once with 16GB of RAM and...

    About 40 years ago they used to teach that Moriori where here first and were separate from Maori, That's no longer the case. For a long time now it's been considered likely they either migrated with...

  16. Re: Can't get Windows10 installed on my newly built PC (hardware problem?)

    Maybe someone who uses it can confirm but their multi device package for up to 5 devices looks like a much better deal than buying 2 licences. Assuming all 5 devices can be PCs then especially so.
