I believe they are, for the most part that is. The drivers worked well apart from the resolution issue, and the other apps making use of it having issues with it but I solved that.
You said you didn't have internet though? Was that a driver failure as well.I believe they are, for the most part that is. The drivers worked well apart from the resolution issue, and the other apps making use of it having issues with it but I solved that.
Linux is much better at supporting older hardware than windows would be, I'm sure the issues I'm having have solutions, just need to take the time to scour Google a bit.@gamer16 is using old hardware, but with new-ish software it shouldn't be an issue. I remember having issues like this in 2011 or 2012 last? I'm not sure where to even start debugging anymore.
Granted I haven't used an Nvidia GFX card in about as long. Either onboard Intel or AMD discrete.
No, didn't format the old driveCan you backup to the working 1TB external?
Did you format your old HDD after you put it in the enclosure? If not, all the old stuff will still be there and will be owned by "root" which means your non-admin user won't be able to write to anywhere on the drive.
Use it as a backup drive, you can set linux up in such a way so that if your SSD fails the backup will serve as a exact mirror, so you wont lose anything.I don't know, I don't play games and don't download movies, seems like i have excess space and drives - one of which i can use for backup of personal and work related stuff - suggestions?
More so if you want to have some fun playing with electronics. You can build a Rasberry Pi to control your extra storage via usb through a external drive adapter. Then you essentially have a custom built NAS. Then have the NAS initiate backups from devices connected on the network every day or so.This is a good idea. The program you'll want to look up is called rsync.
