    BharOS: IIT Madras-incubated company brings Atmanirbhar "BharOS" for smartphones

    Reading some articles gives the feeling that it is basically a fork of Android/AOSP/LineageOS with no default proprietary apps and a closed app store containing curated apps for the security conscious government departments. Something like Sandes. Theoretically.

    Android TV and portable DVD writer as CD viewer?

    Some of them seem to have weird DRM in them. I tried imaging the whole disc but it did not succeed. They play well while using though.

    Is the router isolating clients or something? Could also be some sort of firewall issue.

    Windows 10 activation status after changing CPU?

    It is retail key but I do not want to go the MS account route. It seems I have no avenue then. Some posts seem to suggest that only CPU change is fine.

    Alternate PSU suggestion needed

    Considering my mental status now, I have no expectations. I have mentally written off the money spent on this brand PSU so any work it does is a bonus for me.

    How to keep an SSD mirrored to similar size HDD in the same computer?

    I have recently bought and cloned the previous main HDD with OS to the SSD and am using it successfully now. But it took me a lot of figuring out with UUIDs of various partitions to get the desktop to successfully boot and run only from the SSD. Now the thing is I want to keep a running backup...

    Alternate PSU suggestion needed

    Because I have posted earlier in this thread too: I sent my CX550M for RMA, at first they said will you take CV550 or cashback I said I will take cashback. Later another guy (seemed to have no clue about earlier conversation) called and asked to which I said I will take higher version. So he...

    Replacement for ASUS Prime B350 Plus motherboard

    Yeah, I know. I had my previous system (AM2) begin with an ASUS motherboard, then BIOSTAR then no-name chinese motherboard until the day I shifted to this Ryzen. The same thing seems to be repeating here.

    Replacement for ASUS Prime B350 Plus motherboard

    I have installed the Gigabyte motherboard yesterday. It is at least 1 inch smaller in size compared to previous ASUS hence I had to change the location of motherboard stand-offs. Also it has only 1 chassis fan header. It does not have any LEDs that light up on power until power button is pressed...

    Corsair CX650F vs. RM650?

By the time they could give me a final answer I was able to contact Kaizen and send the failed CX550M by...

    Replacement for ASUS Prime B350 Plus motherboard

    I got the Gigabyte B450M DS3H delivered. The package contains motherboard and 2 SATA cables. No screws, cable ties included in the package. Is this normal? But at least the M2 slot seems to have a securing screw in place. @quicky008

    SMART status CAUTION - is this drive failing immediately?

    Disk cloning failed for the later 2 partitions. I was able to copy most files though using Unstopcopy. There were errors in only 1 file in the 2nd partition and 4 files in the third partition. It seems like I might be able to use this disk for storing non-essential media if I manage to...
