Klein, who's your service provider, what kind of service? Where's the problem in the connection breaking down? Do you have other machines connected wirelessly and you're saying that those same settings aren't working for your mac or just that when they set your new service up they only connected the one machine and you're not sure how to retrieve those settings to put it in your mac? Feel free to PM me if you want actually useful step by step instructions.
But yeah, you're right, Chili Peppers boy, what would be a GREAT idea is if he reset the wireless modem/router his ISP gave him (pretty much every modem you get nowadays has wireless routing functionality built in, it's fucking obvious from the dude's question if you know a goddamn thing about how to actually help people asking his question). That way BOTH his computers will lose internet and he'll still have no clue how the fuck to connect. Good call, dipshit.
if i replace my graphics card, i wont lose anything right? like i can change it and my computer will just be like, oh nothing happened. or will it mess everything up?
As long as it has compatible drivers with your OS i can't imagine you'll have any issues. If the monitor doesn't display you'll know you have an issue, but i don't know why it would affect anything else.
So, just head on over to a Fry's or a Microcenter if you are lucky, and ask someone. OR the best and easiest bet is to look up your computer specs, find out what MOBO (mother board) you have, and see what is compatible. Chances are if it is an older system, there is plenty information out there.
its a macbook from 2007, and i really want to play star craft II but my graphics card is not awesome enough
Oh then nevermind, you can't replace shit and don't attempt it. If you want to try to upgrade the graphics card take it into an Apple store and see what they say. Odds are you're fucked. You can't just upgrade video components in laptops like that unless there's a higher-end card specifically made for your model of Mac since Apple goes out of their way to try to make it impossible to upgrade your Mac yourself.
Any excel-formula experts out there?
Anyone ever re-solder a broken USB plug back to a thumb drive's board? Google tells me that it's both "easy, just strip some wires" and "impossible, you'll destroy pads and render it useless."
*based upon tedious fact checking.
At some point in the middle of the day yesterday our company iPhones stopped receiving emails. It has something to do with the wifi connection, as soon as we turn wifi off the emails came through. Our IT company has one guy who has ran into this problem before but he is on vacation for a week. Has anyone else ran into this? Is there an easy fix that I can wow my bosses with?
You won't wow your bosses with your grammar.
Ha. Good one!
If you find that it's set to port 25, try using 587 instead. If you're getting the issue with incoming mail too this might be trickier. Oh, also let me know whether or not Incoming and Outgoing have encryption enabled (they'll either have None, SSL, TLS, or Auto).
I am super stoned right now but I will check that tomorrow. They had just swapped out our firewall last week, we recieved emails all weekend then tuesday at 1 pm they stopped. Not sure if we were able to send, but I will check tomorrow when I get to work also.
Seriously, if they can't figure that out you should absolutely fire them. Like, I'm not being dramatic--if there's only one person in that company who understands why email would send differently through their firewall than through a cell connection they have no idea what the fuck they're doing. If I knew anyone out in Phoenix I'd try to get you a recommendation but I ain't got a clue.
