comment Is it better to use a laptop on battery or on AC power?
This answer really fails to address the question, which is about whether to run while plugged in vs. charge up, unplug, discharge, rinse, and repeat. The answer to that is a definite keep it plugged in, as charge/discharge cycles do wear out the battery. Short of that, it is deep discharge cycles that put the most wear on, so plug in before the battery gets low.

comment How to configure Switch Router and Two Different Computer with one single Internet Connection?
Your question is unclear: the short answer is generally that you do not have to do anything because commonly available routers these days perform Network Address Translation to allow any number of computers connected to them to all share internet access with a single IP address leased from your ISP.

comment run a computer without RAM?
32 bit x86 cpu registers are only 32 bits, not 64, and 64 bit x86 cpus have 32 rather than 8 of them.

comment PC starts to be noisy some time after Ubuntu is installed
Well, doesn't seem to be just a hot cpu running the fan faster so its either shot bearings or the disk drive. You'll have to figure out which and replace it.

comment Efficient way to refresh an external hard disk
Indeed, the linked answer is wrong and disks do not automatically read and rewrite sectors when idle.

comment how to disable tcp congestion control
There is no such thing as "never congestion". There is always a limit to throughput and so there will always be congestion whenever anything is trying to send data "as fast as possible", as most things do.

Is the cpu temperature high? Check with sensors.

@VenomFangs, opening the case often has the affect of raising temperatures as it disrupts the proper flow of air.

comment Why does reducing CPU frequency improve battery life?
The energy spent removing the heat with the fan is negligible compared to the power spent generating that heat in the first place.

comment Can Linux scrub memory?
I meant ECC memory is more expensive ( than non ECC ) and so most people don't have it.

This only applies if you have the more expensive ECC memory.

comment Dead motherboard. How can I save the software on my old hard drive?
@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007, no, that question is about how to connect the drive to a working machine to pull the data off.

comment Dead motherboard. How can I save the software on my old hard drive?
Typically Windows will work just fine if you replace the motherboard and it most certainly does not violate the license. Worst case it will tell you that you need to call Microsoft and get them to reactivate it after you explain to them that you had to replace the motherboard.

comment How can I edit banknote images in Photoshop CS?
I'll go you one better: use open source software ( GIMP ) so you are not chained to whatever idiotic things Adobe wants.

comment Self destruct directory
Unfortunately this stupidity is just the way windows works; it won't let you delete a file that any process has open.

comment HDD working on Mac but asks to be formatted on PC
If it didn't have enough power to operate then Windows wouldn't be offering to format it. Windows offers to format it because it doesn't recognize the filesystem as fat or ntfs.

comment IPv4 interface number
It is not important to identify the interface; the command will figure it out based on the relevant IP addresses.
