How to Connect a Transistor as a Switch in a Circuit
In this article, we go over how to connect a transistor so that it will function as a switch in a circuit.
A transistor is a component that can play 2 vital roles. It can function as a switch and an amplifier. Many times, it functions as both in a circuit.
Specifically, in this article, we will show how transistors can be used as switches.

Solved: Optiplex GX620 memory limitation - Dell Community
The GX620 can support 2 gig modules. With 4 memory slots and a 64 bit CPU and OS it will see 8 Gigs of Ram in bios but you cant use 8. You can only use 3GB or 3.5GB. You CANNOT utilize more memory than 3.5 Gigs even when you install a 64-bit version of your OS This is a GX620 Limitation. Models with Pentium D also support NX and the other requirements for Windows 8.

How to Easily Softmod ANY Fat PS2! | FreeMCBoot & FreeHDBoot Install Tutorial - YouTube
This tutorial has been requested for quite a long time but I waited so long because I was not too keen on the many install methods shown out there. A few recommendations to softmod a PS2 with FreeMCBoot normally include: finding a pre-modded console, using a disc swap trip, using Swap Magic, all of which could be a bit costly or time consuming. With this method all we need is one console and a few tools at our disposal! No swap tricks or discs, no pre-loaded memory card, no reliance on any other system!

This involves installing FreeHDBoot to a hard drive, loading it into the PS2 and using that as our entry point to install FreeMCBoot. That's it! No additional games needed and no need to open up our console!

That reported it working and I have no reason to doubt that. However when I plugged mine in to my raspberry pi and VGA monitor the screen was black but lit i.e. the screen recognised a connection was present but wasn't receiving any data.

HDMI Configuration - Raspberry Pi Documentation
In the vast majority of cases, simply plugging your HDMI-equipped monitor into the Raspberry Pi using a standard HDMI cable will automatically lead to the Pi using the best resolution the monitor supports. The Raspberry Pi Zero uses a mini HDMI port, so you will need a mini-HDMI-to-full-size-HDMI lead or adapter. On the Raspberry Pi 4 there are two micro HDMI ports, so you will need either one or two micro-HDMI-to-full-size-HDMI leads or adapters, depending on how many displays you wish to attach. You should connect any HDMI leads before turning on the Raspberry Pi.

FEL is a low-level subroutine contained in the BootROM on Allwinner devices. It is used for initial programming and recovery of devices using USB.

Sticky-note-pin.png Your device therefore needs to be attached to a host (your PC) by means of a USB cable, connected to a port where the sunxi device will present itself as a USB 'slave' (i.e. in device mode). Usually that means the "OTG" connector.[1]

Android hardware - Official Kodi Wiki
For most high-definition videos (1080p or higher resolution), hardware video decoding is necessary for smooth video playback on most Android devices. Therefor this article contains a list of SoC chipset hardware, (SoC stands for "System on a Chip" which contain the CPU plus GPU and VPU circuits combination, and is also known as a "chipset"), as on Android platforms this SoC chipset is what can playback common video codecs smoothly using Kodi/XBMC.

The fact is, while some devices might be able to smoothly decode standard-definition videos and even some 720p or higher resolution videos using only software video decoding with raw CPU compute power, offloading a large part of video decoding tasks to an integrated VPU (Video Processor Unit) that is optimized specifically for this job is considered essential for almost all Android devices to be able to smoothly playback high definition videos.

OpenWrt Project: 4/32 warning
Every operating system requires

1. Sufficient Flash to accommodate firmware image
2. Sufficient RAM for stable operation

Devices with ≤4MB flash and/or ≤32MB ram will work but they will be very limited (usually they can't install or run additional packages) because they have low RAM and flash space. Consider this when choosing a device to buy, or when deciding to flash OpenWrt on your device because it is listed as supported.

Kobo Aura H20 - Screen Issues - Forums
A: I had that issue with the earlier Aura HD. Same experience with Kobo customer service. So I pried the case open and discovered that its operating system is contained on an internal microSD card that normally sits in a slot held in place by friction only, and it had come loose. I guess I must have dropped it at the wrong angle at some point, and the card just popped out. Initially it was just loose, and gave me erratic freezing for a few days, then it came out completely and everything froze permanently. I pushed it back in place and everything was fine again.
The difficult part is going to be prying open the H2O case so that it doesn't get marked up and lose its waterproofing.
