If you're currently using the Samsung modules, that means your laptop uses DDR4. The DDR3 modules you've been gifted will neither work nor physically fit. Sell (or return) the Kingston DDR3 modules and get some extra DDR4 modules if you have RAM slots left unused in your laptop. If you only have two RAM slots, you'd want to get 2x16 GB modules, preferably at ...

If you are OK with using a lower powered computer like a raspberry pi, then I say go for it! A raspberry pi can run off the same battery bank your phone, just make sure the power bank has a 3.0V output, such as this one. (source: https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/114239/pi-4-maximum-power-consumption#114245). Another idea: if you have a ...

Although it's hard to determine from the photo, the most likely cause of the issue is mild damage to the PCB at the charger connector. This is not uncommon, because the continual insertion and removal of the cable connector flexes the PCB trace and solder joint. Look also for any tiny break in the trace on the other side of the PCB. You observation that the ...

It is highly unlikely your RAM is going to make a significant difference in the performance for video editing or encoding. Your CPU, then GPU is most likely to be the bottleneck in this scenario (in that order). While you don't list the CAS latency for the RAM, It is essentially certain that loading the DDR3 RAM is going to be slower for overall performance ...

The desktop's CPU will run circles around that laptop's. This is because the i5-9400f has two more cores than the laptop and runs at nearly double the refresh rate of the laptops. The 'I' series is basically a marketing thing and only roughly estimates performance in the same generation, not cross generations. It's confusing, I know. I would deeply recommend ...

Yes, in short it is possible and I do recommend upgrading the RAM of your laptop since it is one of the cheapest yet effective ways to increase its performance. Details provided above indicate to me that there is a slot empty to insert another RAM stick to perfectly increase it to the maximum 32 GB limit of the motherboard. It will be beneficial especially ...

If your desktop and laptop both have a USB port type C that supports 100w mode you can charge/power your laptop easily. You may find you need to buy a specific USB type C cable that supports 5A mode. It should be noted you need to have an extra 100w from the PSU so if your PSU isn't big enough you may run into problems. Otherwise, it going to be difficult. ...
