My laptop keyboard shat put on me and stopped outputting certain characters so I took it apart. I have the keyboard part separated from the rest of the laptop but the part I want is held on by these little plastic rivets
>pic related
Does anyone have any ideas how to take it apart without snapping each of them individually

you should probably look up service manuals before taking things apart. they usually have good instructions on the order in which to take things out, and also part numbers and all if you want to order them later.

for lenovo they're here

According to the review I linked someone has ported Rockbox to the the X3 but I didn't know until I dug out that link. The UI is ok I guess, but I wish you could do thing like randomise all the tracks on a card instead of only being able to play a folder from start to end.

May give the Rockbox firmware a try but people are complaining about battery life so it may not be a good option if you can't reverse it. RB was shit on the ipod anyway.

The only downside I've found except that 'play a folder or GTFO', is the screen not being visible in good sunlight. I personally split the SD slots ( which you choose from when selecting a folder) to HARD and SOFT, so I have some control over what I'm listening to. Under the HARD and SOFT card decisions I load folders of music I like. I also have a 'misc' folder under each which contains single tracks from releases that I like but where I don't like the whole release. Suits me well.

It's cheap enough to not give a fuck about those though. I think I got mine from everbuying.net but like I say it was a while ago.

Yeah for the xduoo's you basically have to change your music's folder structure so it you can listen the way you want.

I'm more of a shuffle-everything kind of guy, but the X2 couldnt even do that right.

Even after 2 years of using Android, I still use iTunes for some reason.

I find the program big and clunky and unnecessary since I don't use apple products anymore.

Anyone able to recommend me a good alternative? Something light weight but with a good interface.

Also, Lollypop is nice on linux. It has built-in streaming to supplement locally stored music.

You search for publicly available music through the app (youtube-dl on the backend, pulling from itunes and spotify), and it lets you "add" it to your library, and it integrates seamlessly with your other music.

It's in that gnome3 style which could be positive or negative depending on your preference, but it's super handy and easy.

Keep anything you wan to save. Pics, etc. The rest would be mostly irrelevant as it would be overwritten. Like system files. Basic native to windows 'program files.'

Say users folder as person says appdata 'may' contain info one would want to save. Bookmarks, firefox etc. May be a pain in the rear to to upgrade with windows, the setting etc, but most programs would likely roll with an upgrade like from 7 to 10 if folder is overwritten, it would not harm overwriting these as they are recreated when deleted, but may not necessarily work
correctly replacing them after an upgrade.

As for app data say publishing software0, whatever may keep most data in it's own location, say in program files folder. You can though save certain programs files settings and contents with
native? Utilities for upgrading.

Just depends on what kind of upgrade one is trying to do.

If installing as an upgrade or in place upgrade, and not a clean install windows would create a file called windows.old , by default. As person said that would allow one to 'hopefully' revert back to it's former state if the upgrade fails. The windows.old file will help this happen. As stated when one is comfortable with the upgrade, if a few days weeks things seems well it is perfectly
safe to delete windows.old .

Can burn UBCD to cd, boot into. When booting computer it should say boot options, esc f12 f2 whatever. hen in boot options select cd or dvd drive with you burned UDCD. There would be HDD/disk wiping/ select active killdisk.

Hopefully this will start correctly. Ok, do know the size of the drive you intend to wipe beforehand. Select correct one say my storage drive 1s 300 gigs I would selct that if I wanted to wipe it

As my Cdrive is 35 gigs, I would not want to erase my windows or linux 12 gigs, just know what you are wiping.

This will zero your selected drive to zeros 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000
Unreadable, basically no method will recover any data on the selected drive you have zeroed out.

Hey guys, I'm interested in buy an Asus Chromebook to install Ubuntu on using crouton.

The specs are:
>Rockchip Quadcore 1.8 GHz Processor
>4 GB DDR3 RAM
>16 GB Solid-State Drive
>$160USD

I have no use for ChromeOS, once I install Ubunutu can I wipe the ChromeOS partition? I need an inexpensive laptop with this specs. I was also considering an ASUS Transformer with similar specs but running Windows 10. I could just use VirtualBox for linux. Anyone have experience with crouton and chrombooks?

  1. That's overpriced. Try Gearbest.
  2. That doesn't come with a keyboard. Accessories for cheap Intel 2 in 1s are profit centers and usually can't be shared between models.
  3. That thing is built like garbage. It will probably die when you break the untempered glass, but if you have a problem that's covered by the warranty, it's very likely that you will not pay to ship your brick to China.
  4. Seriously just go on ebay and buy a fucking Thinkpad.
