First of all, don't worry; 50 degrees is perfectly normal. For future reference, the temperature of the air surrounding your console's main outlet vent is not necessarily reflective of the temperature of the CPU or graphics card(the primary generators of heat in a game console). As far as I know, there are no diagnostic tools to show you more precise ...

You are most likely talking about the QuickShot Supervision. With its tiltable screen and 4 shades of grey, this handheld is the closest I could find to match your dream.

Oddly, Mojang doesn't have any minimum or recommended specs on minecraft.net, instead burying it in a crowd-sourced help article about system requirements. You appear to have more than the minimum required specs: Minimum Requirements: CPU : Intel P4 or its AMD Equivalent (AMD K7) RAM : 2GB GPU : Intel GMA 950 or AMD Equivalent with OpenGL 2.1 ...

Looks to be an Action Replay. You insert it into your system, and then a game into the Action Replay. Typically allows for cheating in games and copying save files. Gamestop often sells them, whereas I've not seen them sell flash carts.

Move your .minecraft folder. Copy the entire .minecraft folder to your SSD. Lets assume your SSD is D: and you copy the folder to the directory D:\Games\.minecraft ...

From your description, it sounds like the problem is with your HDMI cable, and not with the Xbox. I've owned several Xbox 360's and never had a problem with loose HDMI connectors. You can try to overcome the looseness via velcro, tape, or glue of some sort, but it's far easier to just get a better quality cable. I've had excellent luck with Monoprice HDMI ...

Same as for any case of usage, i.e. 7200 is faster than 5400. However there are 2 additional things to consider, 7200 generates more heat and noise. While second can cause discomfort, first shortens life of the HDD. Considering that PS3 is not really depends on drive speed in general, 5400 is generally preffered. Considering HDD buffer size it's again, same ...

The original Etrian Oddyssey games are DS titles, therefore they wont be restricted by 3DS region locking as established in this answer. This means it doesn't matter where you get Etrian Oddyssey 1, 2 & 3, they will play on any 3DS device in any region. Just make sure to buy your 3DS & your copy of Etrian Oddessey 4 from the same region. As you've ...

You can use mklink to create a directory junction, which will enable you to access Minecraft in the usual way while it is physically stored elsewhere (in your case, on another drive). Move the Minecraft folder where you want it to physically reside, then hit Win-R, enter cmd, hit Enter and input the following command: mklink /j targetfolder originalfolder, ...

Discs in any optical disk player (CD, DVD, Blu-Ray) spin at a very high RPM. Thus, they have to be carefully balanced to avoid doing damage to the disc or the player. Even putting a label on the disc can sometimes cause some minor balance issues. These balance issues can wear out the disc or the drive prematurely. Your loss of mass is relatively small ...

Based on your specs, you may not have enough VRAM to support going above medium textures.

The official Saitek FTP site has a download at: ftp://ftp.saitek.com/pub/software/x45/x45_151205_64.exe I suggest trying that, though I'm afraid I don't have this device so can't verify if it works. However, other Saitek devices I've used on 64 bit OS's with drivers from here have worked well.

That isn't exactly abnormal. I've seen temperatures exceed 60 ºC at the exhaust ports on my gaming laptop, so I highly doubt the temperatures you're measuring indicate a genuine issue. The Xbox One is designed to be well-ventilated internally and should not overheat that easily. Just make sure none of the airflow ports are blocked.

Looks like an adapter for microSD used for playing pirated or ROM dumped games.

A simple way to clean the lense is to go out and buy a cleaning disc. These are made specifically to clean gaming systems/DVD players, so it wouldn't damage the Xbox. ( I used one of these on a DVD player and it worked well.) If it is the actual lense, you would have to service it.

The minimum PSU requirements stated by the GPU manufacturers are excessively conservative. They can't make many assumptions, they have to deal with bad no-name PSUs and lots of extra components in the system. I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti which according to NVidia requires a minimum PSU of 500W, and it is running perfectly fine in a computer with a ...

You can try either of the following methods: Use Cursor Lock to confine the mouse cursor to a selected area on the screen. Press Win + P and choose Projector/Computer only, depending on whether your're playing on your secondary or main screen respectively. This will allow you to quickly switch between single or multiple monitors without unplugging the ...

Other than the above, the Xbox 360 E is meant to be cooler (temperature) and quieter, though no-one can notice the difference.

I recently had a similar problem with my PS3 and replaced, not the whole drive, but just the laser and the "deck", which is the little track that moves the laser back and forth. Search ebay for "PS3 laser" - mine cost about £23 (UK pounds, equivalent to about $40 USD). The decks are specific to different hardware revisions of the PS3, so be sure to check ...
