    Quick Questions

    Post  mcmicken on Tue Sep 07, 2010 12:57 pm

    Alrighty folks, was just gonna ask a wee question but figured it'd probably be better to have a thread for those wee questions that require an answer but not really worth a full thread.

    This is one for you tech heads. Got myself a PCI Firewire Card (Texas Instruments chipset) and will be looking to install it to my laptop. How do I do this without forking my laptop up? Is it just a case of open it up, disconnect my existing PCI card and snapping the new one in place or will there be soldering required?

    Your pretty tech illiterate outside of sound systems right?
    I'ld say going to a reputable computer shop for advice/installation would be for the best.
    Though I think KingK has jammed PCs together before.

    Not really tech illiterate, just can't be arsed with it. I opened the laptop up, had a wee scoot around. Looked at a guide for a similar laptop online but couldn't get to the area I needed to so I put it back together. Guess I'll send it to some tube who knows more about it so if he pricks it up I can blame him :)

    laptops are much easier to break, so yeah, give someone else the responsibilty.

    After a couple of stupid discussions with people I understand that beef (meat) is not a thing to be made plural, but what about beef (slang) as in a grudge? My argument is that to have more than one beef, they would be considered beeves due to English grammar...I feel like I need to ask some whiter than white kids.
