comment Logitech Anywhere Mouse - even new batteries show 'need to replace' red blinking light
People often recommend using isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab for that sort of thing. But if the contacts are already quite clean then it may not help in which case there may be a badly soldered joint inside the mouse or something. If you have a friend who is handy with a soldering iron and a multimeter then they might be able to repair it.

comment xfx750i support for intel pentium G3240
Interestingly there doesn't seem to be a Pentium G3580 so I'm guessing it's a typo? Based on the naming convention it would also be much too recent though.

comment Kingston USB 3.0 Flash Drive write speed too slow
Do you have another USB 3.0 device that you can test, or are you able to test the stick on another computer that has USB 3.0? That would be the best way to determine the problem.

comment Kingston USB 3.0 Flash Drive write speed too slow
What are the read speeds like and have you tried benchmarking it? If your USB controller is running in USB 2.0 mode then read speeds should obviously be affected too. According to userbenchmark.com it looks like the highest write speed figures shown are 35MB/s: usb.userbenchmark.com/Kingston-DataTraveler-R30-USB-30-32GB/….

comment Kingston USB 3.0 Flash Drive write speed too slow
USB flash drives normally have quite low write speeds, for USB 3.0 models it's often far below the read speeds. If you want the best speeds then consider buying an external SSD, or you can probably build one for less cheap SSD and a USB enclosure or adapter cable.

comment WIFI fallback to 3G
This is off topic as it is an iOS question. However, I think you will find your answer here: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/62870/…. You need to set the WiFi connection to use a static IP address rather than use DHCP, and make sure no gateway is set.

comment Windows 8 - Windows are flashing?
Are the windows blinking in a deliberate pattern or is it more of a random flickering? If it is the former then check Control Panel->Ease of Access Center->Use text or visual alternatives for sounds and make sure you don't have Sound Sentry enabled.

comment Laptops unable to access NAS shared folders over 2.4GHz wifi network
Have you tried updating the router's firmware? There doesn't seem to be any downloads on the Aztech site, but maybe the router's administration interface has an option to check for firmware updates? Also try disabling QoS to see if it makes a difference.

Have you tried using the IP address for accessing the NAS shares instead? e.g. \\192.168.x.xx\video

comment Windows Server 2012 Missing Disk Space
Either that or the file system is completely messed up, you could try using chkdsk (Windows built in disk checking tool) to check for any issues.

comment Windows Server 2012 Missing Disk Space
I think that the disk may be set as dynamically expanding which means it hasn't allocated the 40GB on the host yet. You can test copying some files to see if the useable capacity really is 40GB. Certainly this is the way it works with dynamically allocated RAM if using Windows Server Hypervisor to host the VM's and it makes it very confusing to track resources in the guest OS.
