comment How do I tell if my Memory is ECC or Non-ECC?
Look up the motherboard manual, or the system manual for your system, and see what is required for your hardware? Use the memory suggestion tools on the various RAM vendors web sites?

comment How to find out the user who changed the MySQL root password?
You can change passwords over the network, or through software that would leave no logs. If your server is open to the network I can use my local mysql client. Or a password might be changed by some software like a PHPMyAdmin, or something else if that is on the web server. There may simple be no logs.

comment What do I have to do to have FDE + a good keyboard?
@MichaelFrank probably my fault. I wasn't as detailed as I could have been when I asked the question. I have updated the question with the details from the comments.

comment What do I have to do to have FDE + a good keyboard?
@JulianKnight I have been intermittently searching for solutions to this problem for months, so don't feel bad about it not being easy. :( I upgraded to the DAS4 partly because I couldn't use the LogitechG11 to enter the passwords. I haven't tried waiting a bit, but I don't think that will help. I tried creating a ticket on the DAS support a couple months ago, but I think I got ignored, lost or something. I suppose I should try creating another.

comment What do I have to do to have FDE + a good keyboard?
Yes, I have tried unplugging everything else. Even with only the keyboard connected I see no indication of any activity when typing.

comment What do I have to do to have FDE + a good keyboard?
Bitlocker at least displays a * for each character typed into the password inputbox. Even if the keys were not mapped correctly I would still expect to see it recognising that I was pressing the keys. Nothing shows when I type on the DAS4 or Logitech. It is as if not even connected. The password is ~30 characters that match the regex [-_a-zA-Z0-9.,$^]. Everything is set to US.

comment How do computers generate random numbers
The answers here are OK, but I bet if you had asked this on the security site you would have gotten lots of answers. Generating random numbers securely is extremely critical for encryption. It is extremely complex, and there is a huge variety of techniques with different complexity and performance. security.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/prng security.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/random

comment Position of icons on the desktop of windows using hexadecimal code
My wild speculation is that it is a little endian representation of the pixel for one of the corners. So if you flip it you get (0x1a,0x2), or (20,2). Not sure about the order of the axis. In any case, why just just try playing around with various values. It doesn't seem like you should be able to hurt anything.

comment how to mount additively on linux
When you are using fusefs to mount them, don't try to mount the filesystems on top of an existing directory. You are trying to combine test1,test2,test3 to the destination test1. Instead choose a unused destination.

comment Should I trust a hard drive from a dropped laptop, that spontaneously started working again?
Never trust a hard drive dropped or not. You should always have at least two current backups in addition to your primary copy. One should be off site. If you have a good backup system, then the hard drive might not matter all that much.
