comment What Temperature Should Fan Speed Be Based Off Of?
If you have speedfan like software, Both the system and the cpu temps are (almost) equally important. the capcitors on the motherboard (especially older ones) would want to be cool also to keep them from failing. You will always have to pick some balance over cool vs quiet, and make some arbitrary descisions on your own.

comment Is “advisable” to NOT have an integrated graphics card with a dedicated gpu?
Desktop motherboards (not server) are somewhat reliant on the on-die gpu device as the "backup" method for viewing, that is a concideration. Back in time some many boards would have a onboard grafics capability as a backup view. Any good motherboard will allow you to disable the on-die gpu and carry on without them doing anything at all. Some uses for the extra gpu are varied it can be used for another monitor or for video encoding. Wise would completely depend on what you need, what you want to do, and what your MB & Cpu type supports. Your question doesnt even say if it is laptop?

comment A powered USB hub that automatically formats?
Dedicating some computer to the task, if security was a big issue, it would also have a routine to observe "error" and if the task was completed. A failing SD card or flash stick can go into "Read Only" mode, and ruin your security.

comment Explorer.exe Stops Responding Once Logged In
Not to solve, but to test, create another fresh new user, make sure that works always, identify that works in your question here. Then assume there is some software running under the other user that causes problems. or some context menu items which have been known to cause that (among other things).

comment Browser inside a browser
funny how 3D browsers from like 2009 had options to have multiple web pages shown at once soley for the purpose of navigating a site. picture being inside a 3d cube with 4 pages on the sides of the cube and the one main page in the center. Most 3D browsers were never completely finished, but it might be something that already does some of what you want. You dont indicate if your looking for a browser, or (iframes) if you mostly want to make a webpage with multiple frames in it. Now most browsers Use 3D (gpu) but are only 2d.

comment How do I get into my BIOS without a black screen?
Ahh, if you have any way to connect via vga or dvi that might help to see. DP is less "legasy" then the older connections, it should still show (be drivered by) the bios , but could be that piece of information is very important to Add (edit) Into Your Question

comment Realtek audio, Logitec Subwoofer silent
i dont know (what you have occuring isnt normal at all). Microsoft (updates) will even driver most of the realtek chips, so you could potentially uninstall the whole realtek software/driver package and have a limited driver (from updates) that works with microsoft sound property pages only. In seperate connected sub systems often there is a seperate sub volume on the remote or on the sub/amp. I cant think how drivers would change unless not configured corrrect.

comment Computer not recognizing external Hd after extended period of time
so far i dont think you have said anything that sounds like the disk itself is failing. generally there are a lot of USB port disconnect problems reported , especially with newer OS and newer hardwares, so it could be one of those issues instead. You could do a "SMART" testing to see if there are any issues shown of that type. BUT one would always want to have a disconnected backup of thier data. Price of another drive for backup $100 price to try and get a recovery $500 actually getting a recovery from a dead drive Priceless :-)

comment Is it possible to undelete this registry value?
windows since win7 saves a registry backup every 10 days, it hangs out around here C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack (win7) then you could use a method like superuser.com/questions/690982/… to load in the hive that is stored in, and then use an export or copy paste or something. To see when the registry was stored last look in the task scheduler under windows Registry.

comment Computer not recognizing external Hd after extended period of time
Yes it does sound like something that could be a power issue for the drive itself. also some of these external cases have very poor cooling, and cooking caps for 3 years :-) might help it into the grave. Are you ever able to fully access complete and tested files in whole off the drive before it begins to fail? You did not describe if the external unit has its own power or is usb powered? What style of power converter is used? is it internal to the case? All your other usb connected externals are working fine, even when using the same port (and i sort of mean on the laptop itself).

comment How do I get into my BIOS without a black screen?
The fast boot I was referring to is a bios/uefi feature of newer motherboards. In this situation you have here what the OS itself is doing makes no difference, although if you are still getting into the OS fine, you could turn off ultrafast boot using the supplied gigabyte software called "FastBoot" if that was the problem. You can also use it to access the bios (sort of) right from the OS [Enter Bios Now]. But you still have not supplied the way more information needed to answer correct. Where is your monitor connected now? had you previously disabled Igpu in the bios? then clear the cmos.

comment Concerning the hardware
The tiny wires (traces) that are way too close to the screw holes for a cooler can include the ram. probably not all the ram and not likely the M2. I would certannly test the cpu itself on something else because of the durability and socket connections, it could have survived.

comment Realtek audio, Logitec Subwoofer silent
1 cable with how many connections? of what type optical digital or analog? Take your average 3.5mm jack if it has 3 seperated connection points on it, then it is connecting 2 possible signals up. If I am thinking what acejavelin is thinking , then you only ever set this up as "stereo" and certannly not as a 2.1 5.1 type of system. you do not select the presence of a subwoofer, because it is not seperately connected. One of the speaker setups i have here uses that method and classed itself as a 2.1 , but the only .1 part is seperated out at the subwoofer amp, not back in software.

comment Nothing Displays on Computer After Crash
Yes, the 6pin or 8pin GPU and the 4 or 8 pin CPU wires comming from the PSU (when it is on) should all be repetitive 12v powers. There is no other configurations used there that would properly function in all situations , be standard for the specs , or normal.
